Four Exhausting Days in the City

We love looking out the window on California Street. Left to right...then right to left.

We could spend all day and all night watching the activity below. The people, the cars, the dogs, the's all so very facinating. BUT, it's also a BIG responsibility protecting our little piece of San Francisco. I (Brownie) especially take it seriously. Looking left to right; and right to left hour after hour. And then letting out an ear-piercing bark when something or someone 'suspicious' strolls by.

A holiday weekend in the city is exciting. But after four days 'on patrol', all that left to right and right to left is exhausting!

Meerkat Rocco

Daddy says I look like a Meerkat.

Mommy disagreed.

Until she saw this side by side comparison.

Gary Danko

This weekend was mommy's birthday. And to celebrate, daddy took mommy out for an extra special dinner.

Mommy has wanted to dine at this very fancy restaurant for years!

And finally, she got the chance.
Daddy got a reservation.
Mommy was very happy.

And we got a 'doggy bag' from the famous Gary Danko cheese cart.

S-C-O-R-E !!

Sunday Night Football

The Raiders really aren't very good this year; I'm (Brownie) embarrassed to be in gray and black. But I love momma's warm hoodie...and I'm always cold.

I'm (Rocco) more of a 49ers fan...which is almost as embarrassing. But my fur crimps in the San Francisco damp air...

Maybe we should start rooting for the Indianapolis Colts...they have a winning record AND a dome!

Its Raining - Its Pouring

Drats! Its raining.

We hate going potty in the rain, especially in the city.

In the country when it rains, daddy just opens the back door, we run out to the edge of the grass, do our thing, and then sprint back inside. We want , minimal raindrops, so we don't mess around.

In the city however, we need to be WALKED two blocks on leashes to our favorite spot.

This is what we needed to endure just for a little pee. And we still got wet!

At least we got a cookie after the embarrassment.

Yeah, but I (Brownie) can't reach mine. HATE moving in clothes!

"The Beav"

Mommy takes a vanpool from the city to the country every Friday night. Its a long drive, with lots of traffic. But she says its worth it to be able to come home and spend the weekend with us. Our momma loves us soooo much.

She gets dropped off at the Fairfield Transit Center. Its across the street from Target. Which is a good thing, because she usually has to wait for daddy to pick her up. He works late a lot.

So mommy spends the time walking up & down the aisle at Target. She could spend hours there. Which again is a good thing, since she usually is waiting & waiting for daddy to pick her up...

Tonight mommy bought us a present....a new puppy AKA stuffed beaver.

We love new toys!

Throw it dad. Throw it!

Daddy tossed it and we played fetch and tug-of-war. Again and again.

It was so much fun.

I work hard. Concentrate & dig in.

I (Brownie) REALLY get into it. I can't help myself.

The next thing you know the beaver is a shell of its former self and stuffing is everywhere.

I (Rocco) can't stand it anymore. I go in. I get it and steal it.

I just lovvvvve teasing Brown.

Mommy Goes to Paris

Momma's going on a business trip to Paris.

The Paris Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, that is.

We helped her pack.

It's only one night...and we'll be back together for our regular Wednesday night visit.

But we'll miss her anyway.

...what DOES happen in Vegas anyway?

Rocco Says No To The Hose

I (Brown) can't stand the hose topping off the spool. I wanna play! I wanna play with it!

Rocco wants nothing to do with the hose. Nope. Nothing.

If I (Rocco) ignore it, will it go away? Let me try it...

Seven Minutes FLAT.

Mommy bought us a couple new toys tonight. They’re from the AKC, they’re green & they're cool...Woodland Green Toys.

I (Brownie) gutted mine in 7 minutes. Flat.

Mommy timed me.

I think it was an owl. But I'm not sure...

Stuffing was everywhere. Then the squeaker came out. Mr. Owl was as flat as a pancake.

Whatever Brown. ...Just stay away from my (Rocco's ) Mr. Porcupine.

Whatever Rocco. ... ... ...Stuff really does happens Rocco.
