K k k k Katie, beautiful Katie

For those of you waiting for a full report about our evening out over the weekend, here's how it was, just as we thunk it and spoke it:

Saturday evening. February 14, 2009. Romance in the air. After our previously noted conversation about what to wear, we decided on our best Valentine bandanananas (gifts from our Orlando pals, Jack and Alle Truett). Mom had a different idea though -- and so we also had to wear our usual garb. As if we were going to run away or something. But never mind.

So there we were, all spiffed up and ready to go. "OK, Dogdad, are we getting this show on the road, or what?""And are you sure you know where we're going?" OK. I guess we made it OK. And what is that we hear? A sweet feminine bark????? She must have heard our car arrive -- kind of like us, at home, huh? Let's go see. Hmm, nothing feminine about this foot!!"And dinner, Mom? Didn't you say dinner? ""Oh, you say, that kibble at home was our dinner and you humans are having dinner here while we watch????? And wine? And cake and ice cream?" How sad is that???
But where is our canine hostess??? We keep hearing her bark, but where is she???"
Oh, she's the shy type? Perhaps she'll come around with a little sniff or two!! Just Harry, do your best!! We brought her some squeaky toys -- if the sniffs don't work, perhaps we can lure her over with a few squeaks...But what's that? Wowser, what a big bath tub!!!
Uh oh, this wasn't some scheme to lure us over for a bath, was it???

Oh, but who's that????? Finally! Wow, what a beautiful golden tail she has!!! And those dainty little feet!!"Gee, Katie, you're a cute little thing!!" "Yep, k k k Katie, you're a beautiful girl!!!"

"Thank you for inviting us over!!! We had a swell time and hope you'll come visit us."
And that's how it was, pals -- we had a good time, even though Mom never did share a morsel with us, and we saw something we'd never seen before. Mom said it was a "pool" and people swim in it -- whatever that means. We're not so sure how we feel about that -- perhaps during the summer we'll try it out.
Given our reputation as the Barkalots, we do have to point out that we did not bark even once -- even though our gal Katie kept at it. After dinner, Mom disappeared into the den and found Katie on the couch -- they had a nice quiet conversation about us with lots of ear and tummy rubs, and Katie apparently relaxed 'cause it was after that she made her appearance.
Our human hosts were very kind too. They said we were good boys and very "well-behaved" and could come again if we wanted to. But first, we think we'll invite Katie over to our house for a play date.
Jake and Just Harry

Oh either of you think Katie looks like a cute little Fox? Maybe that is why you are so enamoured.

What a lovely date. Katie is so cute with all her spots.

Hey, boys!

Looks like Miss Katie is a little shy, but worth the wait. We hope your playdate at your house goes well. Bummer about the lack of food, however.

As for that pool, next time you go over there ask if you can try it out. I bet you guys will LOVE going for a swim. Maybe Katie can show you (*winkywinkwink*)!

Goober love,
