What happens when you come to visit....

You get put to work!

Even if you are my Dad and you just brought me a new-to-me van! Yup, you still have to wash the ol' truck! My Dad and I generally disagree on just about everything critter related. I just ignore his ramblings now, but I have to agree with him on this one. That's Chum in the picture with him. There is nothing that Chum hates more than the pressure washer, except maybe having his nails clipped. No matter how wet he got or how annoyed Dad got, Chum kept coming back for more, leading Dad to declare him "retarded". That might be a bit harsh and certainly not politically correct, but that dog isn't all there!

Mom didn't really get put to work, but she hates a dirty kitchen almost as much as Chum hates the pressure washer. Someone how that gene skipped me, but I like to think I inherited some other good traits from her. Happy Mother's Day, Ma!

Way to put the parents to work!!! It's tough being a doggie mommy, so glad you got help! Sounds like you have great parents!

Is it true that Busy Parents are Happie Parents? They look like they should be Happie!

And Happy Newer Van to you - are we going to get to SEE it? Hope it serves you well!

Happy Anniversary TamaraLyn and Stuart. Hard to believe it has been 9 years since we shivered in Waterton Glacier Park to be a part of your wedding. No dogs or cats were there just a herd of elk ! You went from Southern Alberta to the Yukon. Thankfully you have wonderful networks of friends and as parents we are happy for you both. Love ya.

At least I'm not the only one! I put my parents to work too and they also disagree on animals in the house. So we are at odds.

Yep, same here. Parents get put to work as soon as they get here! Then they complain about dog hair, tripping over dogs, etc. I've yet to hear my dad call one of the dogs retarded though!! LOL!
