Bougainvillea, Brunch, and our Best Behavior

We were invited to an Easter brunch on Sunday with Mom and Dogdad's friends. They live about 45 minutes away to the south -- so we had a very cool road trip!!

When we got there, we saw the most beautiful bougainvillea. (Ours look like sick cousins by comparison. We're so embarrassed, we won't even show them.)

The brunch table had lots of yummies. OK, we'll have the eggs and the bread and we spy a few carrots...Mom, you can have the matzoh!!

Treats? For me?
And me???
More, please...Notice how good we're being. Nary a bark. OK, a few little friendly jumps, but no begging, no leg humping!!

Ah, but then I got to thinking about sweet Gabbi, so many miles across the ocean...And then JH crashed!! It's tiring being on our best behavior!!

OK, Mom, we're ready to go home.

You guys have great smiles! Happy dogs, we'd say.

(AND it made our hearts sing to see your harnesses... sometimes we feel as if people must think we're incarcerated. Now we know we're not the only ones!)

So... we want to know... did you sleep all day on Monday :)

Martha said...

Hi Guys
What a great visit and you were both so good. You looked absolutely adorable in your pictures - that should keep em fooled!!!
That bougainvillea was amazing. We dont know what that is - is it like an azalea?
Gorgeous colour - you will have to feed yours with plant food!
Glad you enjoyed your day and we bet your slept on the way home!

Woooo, look at all that grub! And did you boys water the Bougainvillea?? Make it grow more?
Looks like you all had a lovely day, didn't they have a little dog buddy for you to play with?
Slobbers from Alfie, Snoop & Rosie....and huge smooches from Gabbi who is sighing at how handsome her Jake is!

Joe Stains said...

We certainly were not as good as you guys, not even close :) We have one of those boogie veelas in our yard too!

William Tell said...

Of course you were both on your best behavior! That brunch looks yummy. :)

Happy Tails,

Unknown said...

What excellent visitors you two were - and how lucky to get invited. Madison is afraid that she is too GIANT to get invited along to new people's houses ... she doesn't really "tuck into a corner" very well ...

Thanks for the comments about our Wabbit Ears. Do you think we should wear them to Salzberg. We definitely would be remembered by everyone at the wedding.

Moco said...

Are the two of you turning over a new leaf or does it have to do with being in love?

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

Now your comment about bouganvillia on Martha and Bailey's blog makes sense. When we first read it we thought,"What in the world is Jake of Florida talking about? Doesn't he know this post is about poor Bailey being framed & sent to jail!!??" NOW we see the light.hehe.

Noah the Airedale said...

Sounds like you had a fun visit.
You're both so well behaved unlike 3 certain airegals I know lol.


Dexter said...

CRASH! You must have passed out from hunger. All those foodables and nary a one for you.


Faya said...

Kisses, Faya

Princess Patches said...

What a beautimous Bougainvillia! We have 2 that Mom brings inside in the winter. Of course, they aren't nearly as big as the one in your post, but the flowers are about the same color. We're glad you boyz had a pawsome day...complete with treats!

Poppy, Penny & Patches

Martha said...

Thanks for all that info on the bougainvillea.
Seems unlikely that it would grow in Scotland then!
It is certainly very pretty. xx

Arran, Arthur and Mum said...

I hopes you got some of them delicious foods. You two were very good not doing barkings. I think I woulda beed doing my pay attentions to me bark.

Moose said...

Beautiful Bougainvillas! We are in the process of planning our landscaping here at the moose lodge and have committed to using native plants and are HEARTBROKEN that they are not native to this area. They are so easy to grow down here that it is really tempting!
I had to scroll back through a lot of your love interests to be reminded of who Gabbi is, what a bea-utiful hound she is! You two are really on the prowl these days ;-)

Moose said...

Yes, I agree about making Bougainvillas honorary natives along with Key Limes so I can support my mojito habit ;-)

Mr. T-Bone Beasley said...

Hi Boys!

Did you humans pull up a couple of chair for you? I mean, you were at a restaurant!

Lucia said...

Ciao belli Jake and JH!

That looked like a molto squisito array of foodables, miei amici, and a great visit, too. No wonder you were all tuckeried out at the end of the day!

Tanti baci!

Molly the Airedale said...

You guys are so well-behaved! We would have had a much different story to tell if it had been us and not you!
The bougainvillea is gorgeous!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Patience-please said...

You two sweethearts are the BEST visitors EVER. Thank you and your dear people for all of your kindness; it has meant so much.

And you know I had the same thought: if I were writing this in a novel, it wouldn't be believable.

big soggy hugs from the whippets' servant

Pippa said...

Misery love bougainvillea. She couldn't grow it in the UK (inside) and she can't grow it in Spain either. haha

Scottie the 'Cutie' said...

Pretty bougainvillea! Mom said we used to have some of them at home, but they weren't as pretty as the photo you took!

You two look SOOO cute smiling for the camera! I agree,it's tiring work sometimes...but it's worth the treats, no? *grins*


Misadventures of Widowhood said...

What beautiful flowers in that first photo. Glad you had a good Easter.

Thanks for checking in on me. I'll be back soon....if I don't break Moomie's Blogger again.

Hi guys! That's an outstanding bougainvillea! We planted two in our yard several years ago and we love them and every one we see. (Ours just climb the fence - that one's amazing!) You sure were lucky to get invited to brunch!

See ya!
