Our Journey...

Think we forgot to tell you a lil bit about what sort of vacay we're on! Last September of 2011, Dad retired. He and momzers got an RV and decided to plan a trip across the country, visiting national parks on the way to Maine (where's that?) for a family reunion. That's a long trip from northern California! Anyway, this blog is now a record of our travels across the good ole U.S. of A. and even Canada - plus all the things we get to do and see! We started our journey mid-March and hope to be back in NoCal by mid-October - yeah!

Doggie Cookies and Doggie Love

We have the lights on the tree and holiday music playing while we make doggie cookies!

Rolling out the doggie cookie dough...

Sierra Rose is over to help.

Okay, you're doing a good job.

Great work! Glad you didn't burn those - I'll give one of those a try - just to make sure.

Awwwww... c'mon!

I want one too!

Finally I think I'm going to be a cookie tester. After all, I've been so good and I am very hungry!

Me too... ohhhhh... that looks so yummy!

That was scrumptiers! Can I have another?

Uh oh! Distraction!!!

Ozzie: Uh Oh... Sierra's baaaaackkkk.

Well... they worked their problems out and now we need to decorate our doggie cookies!

Ohhhh.....they look so yummsers! Give me one now!

Ohhhhhh... Thank you - delicious!!!

Can I have just one more?

OK! Sierra here. My turn! You probably owe me like thirteen cookies!!!! Well alrighty! Thank you! (PS: I did snaggle quite a few ho ho ho!) And then it was time to go home.

Sierra never leaves without giving me a giant hug (isn't that nice???). Tonight, I thought I'd let you see our kissies! Nighty night. Oh and BTW, Grandpeep has started a new bloggie about her adorable baby rats, Pandy and Lulu. Stop by her place if you'd like at http://grandpeeprats.blogspot.com. Happy Holidays!

How wonderful! Making Christmas cookies with the people you love. They look really yummy too! The Duchess isn't much of a cook so we have never had a home made cookie. I loved the last picture. Best friends are very special.

Sammie, tell Mom to blog the recipe for those doggie cookies so all the Moms can make them for their animals. Lets get these Moms busy baking while the animals are the test tasters!!!!!! I use to make cookies for Joker and for Amanda, but I can't find that recipe! Thank-you for your great post today Sammie! I love it, Fern

Cookie testing is very serious business. You did a fabolous job keepin' the peeps focused at the task at hand - keepin' the golden tummy full and happy.
