We have been busy helping Mommy and Daddy build a new deck. As soon as they got our doggy door installed they tore down our old deck (it basically crumbled as soon as they started, so it was definitely time to be replaced). Since we have a split level house, the only exit to the back yard is now through the basement window, so we have all been using the couch as a jumping point to get out there. Cody especially loves it because he has never been allowed on the couch before (Mommy keeps catching him taking naps on it now but isn't saying anything until the deck is done). So here are some pictures of the progress so far. Today some of the basic framing went up. We will all be glad to have things back to normal!

Looking down from the back door.

The couch is protected and ready to be trampled on!

In use

Yoshi gives the framing his paw of approval. Those are temporary planks just for show.

Oh, and for those of you who read our post about our neighbor doggie, Dakota - his family has decided to keep him after all. We are glad and will miss him once he goes to his new house.

Please help!

Our neighbor came over and asked if we would be able to take their dog, Dakota. They are moving and have to spend some time in a motel for awhile and decided that they cannot afford him any longer. If there is anyone in the Denver area that you know who wo to adopt him, please let us know. If they can't find a home by Saturday he is going to the pound :(

He is a very nice doggie - he is about 12 years old, fixed, house trained, good with kids, and very easy going. He gets along with us just fine so I'm sure he would get along with you! He is about 60-70lbs. Please please please spread the word like wildfire and let us know if you are interested!

Silly photo challenge

Hello everyone!
This is Mommy here. Yoshi found this link and decided he wanted to participate in the Silly Photo Challenge! I also decided to add a few pictures of our trip to Belize a few years ago. Photo credits for those two are MY mom and a friend of the family, but they were on our trip and are indeed funny so I thought I'd share!

First, here are Yoshi's entries.
There is a reason the block of cement was in place - he didn't quite figure that one out and got stuck!

Spring thaw.

This one was on accident - fish fry anyone?

This one was not so much on accident, but funny none-the-less. And yes, he's holding lighter fluid!

Feel free to stop by the SquirrelQueen's blog to check out other silly photos!

What's in a name?

Mommy and Daddy have lots of nicknames for us.

Stinky butt
Little dude

Cods (with the long o)
Big dude

When Cody was adopted he already had his name and Mommy and Daddy decided they wouldn't change it. That explains why many of our nicknames sound the same.

Do your humans have any nicknames for you?

Summer is here!

Mommy finished her finals and is now halfway through her master's degree - yay Mommy! The day she finished them our Grandma and Grandpa (Daddy's parents) came to visit us for a week. We got to go to the "Shylo Country Club" for a weekend visit while they hiked in Boulder without us (there wasn't enough room in the car for 4 humans and the 2 of us). We enjoyed ourselves and got an A+ on our report card! The people at Shylo were impressed with how well Yoshi played with other little dogs and mentioned that Cody was always bouncing off the walls with energy. We would love to go back sometime, but especially because Cody heard they have a pool! Unfortunately it wasn't open while we were there, but if we go later this summer it will be!

Once we got back from Shylo we helped with some house projects...this one is our favorite! Mommy and Daddy were tired of flies getting in when they left the back door open, but since we don't have air conditioning we never really had a choice! Well now, we have our own door and can go out whenever we want! It took us awhile to get used to it (especially Yoshi) but now we are both pros. Sorry the picture of Cody is crooked, Mommy doesn't know how to get it to turn and she says she didn't turn the camera to take it so she has no idea why it is showing up sideways.

Our house got a new front door and a new ceiling fan in Mommy and Daddy's bedroom to keep us nice and cool.

Mommy really likes this pic of us sleeping - we don't usually sleep together but Yoshi flopped out of his bed onto Cody so it just happened that Mommy had a camera handy!

Mommy has also been getting in touch with her photographer side. She would love to photograph humans, but since we have no family nearby she figured she would start with us. So here are a few pics from her photography adventures!

Well we better go. We are hoping Mommy and Daddy decide to take us to the dog park today but it is starting to get too hot so we need to go soon!
