Happy 12th Birthday, Bentley!

Bentley: “Hey Pierre! Instead of the news, we get to tell everyone about my furbulous twelfth birthday. That’s right, I celebrated turning the BIG 1-2 yesterday so I thought you would like to see how we paw-tied on the Bayou.”

   I was so excited to get a brand-new *Lambchop. Pierre is a known serial Lambchop killer so I’m going to try to keep this baby away from him. You can see that he is already eyeing it!

   Sure enough, Pierre snatched Lambchop and ran into the living room. Mom gave me a stuffed *Gumby next and when I saw Pierre drop Lambchop to look at my newest gift, I put Gumby’s head in my mouth…for his own protection." Pierre: “I had to do something because I didn’t see a birthday cake anywhere.

   Wait!! It’s CAKE!! Give it to me! Give it to me! I LOVE cake! PUH-LEEZE!!”
Bentley: “Well, that escalated quickly! Simmer down, Pierre and put your paws back on the floor. That’s my *birthday cake squeaky toy and I love it. Maybe I share...maybe I won't. It looks awfully fun!"

   This is going to be one of those toys that I drag around all over the house. The candle will make it easy to tote. It is really soft and has a big squeak!
Dogs waiting to eat Dr. Harvey's Canine Health
   Mom decided not to do a birthday cake or cookie this year. I usually end up with an upset tummy from eating too much and Pierre’s digestive issues keep him from being able to eat anything like that. She made it up to us by preparing *Dr. Harvey’s Canine Health with extra chunks of boiled chicken! Instead of warm water, she substituted Castor & Pollux® Pristine Free-Range Chicken Broth! My belly was so happy! 
Basset drooling
   Excuse the drool but it was just that kind of special dinner and day. I had a great birthday and look forward to another year of love and laughter.”

A Visit to The Texas Renaissance Festival

   In October we visited the 45th annual Texas Renaissance Festival in Todd Mission, Texas. It’s only about 55 miles northwest of Houston so a perfect Sunday morning drive for us. This festival claims to the nation’s largest Renaissance theme park and I have to believe it! We spent several hours wandering around and didn’t come close to exploring the entire 55 acres.
   I had no idea what to expect when we arrived, but it definitely surpassed my wildest imagination. The festival boasts over half a million visitors each year. The food all smelled amazing and the vendors were all dressed in costume and could be heard shouting, "Come get ye fill of our finest brew, me lady!" We couldn't resist a smoked turkey leg.

A Walk Around Pundt Park

“Hey, y’all! Mom and Dad took us for a walk around Pundt Park. It is part of the Spring Creek Greenway where they ride their bicycles. This section has a pond on the right side of the photo and woods on the left. We did not know where to sniff first!”

5 Signs Your Dog is the Boss

   Today is National Boss’s Day and since we are retired, we don’t have any bosses. That’s right, we don’t have to answer to anyone…or do we?
   The Bayou Boys certainly have a lot of the characteristics of a boss. Let’s see if your dog or cat could actually be your boss too.
