All in the family

I'm back and blogging...
I think the heat is giving me writers block!!! Sorry we have been away for a bit!! Between Mom being busy at work (UGH) and it has been unbearably hot (for New England that is) resulting in not much blogging this past week.

Probably our biggest news is Mac, my foster brother has now officially become my cousin or maybe some would consider him my uncle!
I know it sounds a bit strange, but after much deliberation it was decided that it would be better for Mac to live with Gramma as his FUREVER home. Mom and I love Mac dearly but between space issues (Mac needed more roaming area than we have here in the city) and personality issues (I was having a very hard time sharing my mom or anyone else for that matter) it seemed all for the best. No one in the family wanted to see him be adopted out to strangers; he is such a lovable lug!

Mac is enjoying lots of yard space, enjoying fresh country air, love and attention from Uncle Harvey and a loving FUREVER home with Gramma. Zach and Mollie are very happy with their new brother, so sadly I am losing a foster brother but happily gaining a doggie uncle! After all it all in the family!!
Okay the sailing picture has nothing to do with the rest of this post - it's just it is hot and nothing says cool breeze like sailing. These are laser sail boats in Marblehead Harbor - we saw them this weekend!

Oh and if you haven’t had a chance, go check out DWB News – I am an aspiring reporter and leaving no stone unturned to get a scoop! (Okay so at first I thought scoop meant scoop of ice cream – but now I learn it means news story too. Humans can be so confusing!) Anyhow check it out and have a great week.

Welcome back Liza, it's been AGES and we were worried. Never mind about Mac - these things happen ad the best thing is he has a new home where you know what he's up to - so win-win all round!

Hi Liza and Dory!

We fostered a dog for a short while earlier in the year (dog minding for a lady on hoildiay)....I thought I might take it up as a full time occupation......but Marvin felt otherwise.

It is very hard to introduce a new dog into an established home I think.

I am so glad Mac found a cool home with Gramma!

A Happy Ending. love and light from Sunny and Warm Scotland, Jeannie xxxxx

and many licks from Marvin xxxxx

Welcome back! I bet Mac is going to have a great time with grandma! Grandmas are great!

Hi Dory!
I think you must have gotten the heat that was here because tit's been cooler - sort of.
I'm sure Mc will enjoy your grandma's home as his furever home. I think a lot of us would love to make grandma's home our forever home because Grandmas are so cool and they really understand what we need - toys and treats!

So glad it worked out for Mac and all of you!!! That's great news you know have an 'uncle' - you roving reporter you!

Woof, Johann

Hi! I missed you, Dory! I'm glad to hear that Mac has his furever home and it worked out best for everyone. I don't particularly like sharing (though I like,in fact insist on, having ONE doggy sibling) so I understand.

I hear next week is going to be cooler so us black dogs won't have to mope around as much!
