My weekend at camp

I have a new place to stay when my people are gone!

This Friday night, my people were up in Indianapolis overnight, so I stayed with my new buddie Rosie, who is a Lhasa Apso mix. Rosie's mom works with my mom and she invited me to come stay with them.

My mom had to go around Rosie's house and find all the things I would inevitably be able to find and eat before she would leave me. It was like a treasure hunt!

Another big old lab named Zeus stayed there too. The three of us are all "senior" dogs and we got along quite well. Rosie has a nice fenced-in backyard, and when we came in from outside, we always got a treat!

Rosie's mom even let me sleep in her bed. I was very comfy on the pillows. If my people let me sleep in bed, it's usually down at their feet. This was much better!

Rosie and I got along so well, that we decided to create our very own new sport: synchronized napping! Note the precision! The elegance and grace!

So I had a great weekend. My mom did too - she ran a 15K on Saturday! She had to walk mile 7, but she was proud of how she did. And she got to see her favorite presidential candidate in person - check out her blog if you're interested. She was very excited. But really my weekend was better. Treats, pillows, friends - my new camp!

Great. A pawfect weekend Lenny! And I've noticed just how long your legs are in your sychronised swimming, I mean sleeping, I'm green with envy....much easier for counter surfing.
Wiry wags new pal.

Lenny...are ya old?? You look like a young pup so we thought you were like um...two?

You sure looked comfy doin' all that snugglin' with Rosie? Maybe she's more than just a friend??? Many hearts will be broken, Lenny...mine included.

Tell ur mom she rocks...the day Mumsie would run a 15K...or ever run at all would be if a um tsunami was after her or something....

Barkin' at ya Len!!!

Peanut said...

What a great place to be able to go to if your mom has to leave you.

Jake of Florida said...

Hi Lenny,

We go to camp too -- but it's a little different -- more like boarding at our favorite vet's -- but with lots of nice peope to take care of us.

Sounds like you had a great time.

Mom's from Philadelphia originally, so she's been watching the campaign in Pennsylvania with great interest. Glad your Mom is so active!! It's been a weird ride. Dogs might do better -- a bit of bitey face and it would be done!!

Kirby said...


Your new camp looks totally pawsome! I bet you Rosie and Zeus had the best time! Looks like you'll have a wonderful place to stay when Mom and/or Dad are out of time. Wooo Hooh!

Your pal,

Pacco de Mongrel said...

if i were u, i would wanna go home...

wally said...

Whoa! A senior citizens home! I could stay there...I think I could do synchronized napping quite well.

So glad your ma ape got to see Obamarama! I hope he takes the Inbanana! And then the North Carolina! And then we're going to Washington! Yaaaaaaaah! (I was a fan of Dr. Dean. And screaming.).


William Tell said...

What a nice bed and breakfast place you've found! It looks very comfortable and friendly. :)

Happy Tails,
William Tell

Murphey said...

I love sleeping on pillows, they are so comfy.


wally said...


I hope you helped your apes vote today. I'm sure you did a GREAT job. I'm watching the news to see how the wft vote goes in Indiana. Who will get the superdogegates?

Jackson said...

Hey Lenny, where are you? Hope you're doing OK. Miss you pal! J x

Jake of Florida said...
