Life Can Be A Dream

A good day for Linguini is a day of hiking with dogs, with her pals, the rhodesian ridgeback dogs, Hank and Sue. While in general, the rhodesian ridgeback is too sweet and gentle, it's also an extremely powerful dog. M has decided to skip any potential drama by bringing out entire pack together, Frankie and I are too tiny, so she just takes Linguini, the dalmatian and german shorhaired pointer mix, on hikes with Hank and Sue. She deserves it!

First they go for a lovely dog hike. 

As you see, they allow Linguini to lead
Rhodesian ridgeback dogs are very polite by nature

After the hike they like to have a picnic

Then Hank negotiates the dog food and homemade dog treats
I hear he's a pawesome host

On a full tummy, they get to catch up on their zzzs

Isn't Hank an adorable pretzel?

Content Linguini

I wish I could join them, because I never like being left home alone, but I understand that Linguini needs her big-dog time. I love my older sister and how happy she comes home after her special dog hiking expeditions. Besides, I can't complain, I'm going to a new horse barn today!

Rhodies are very sweet! We're glad Linguini had her fun with the big dogs!

How come you never let Linguini write?

Linguini surely did have a grrrreat arranged play time.
Twinkie, you should have been getting you nails done or something for your big St. Paddy's date with Gunther and the girrrls and me. I can't wait.

NEW barn???? Can't wait to see that!!

One of my friends adopted a Rhodi-Lab puppy after her sweet dog, Teal, crossed over the Bridge. Her dog is named Sassy and she is very sweet and also adorable.

We are chuckling over the blankets on the furniture. Looks just like our house!!! Toby, Ginger, Jeter and Halle xoxo

Hi Twink et al,
The Rhodies are gorgeous I love the pretzel sleeping position. You are very right Linguini needs some big dog romping time too it is good for her to get rid of her 'big' energy.
Happy Sat and we hope you and Frankie enjoyed your time at home.

Hey Twinks
That looks like a pretty pawsome walk that Linguini and the others went on! What a wonderful view too! I like the pretzel impersonation...very cute!

My mom and dad know three Rhodies and they all likes to sleep like pretzels. It's very much funny, they say, how a big dog can make themselves so much littler. I'm glad you're understanding about Linguini having big dog time. I think that is Most Nice of you.

That looks like a great hike and it is so good that they all get along so well. Maybe Linguini could carry you in a little back pack so you could enjoy the hike.

Your friends,

Your mom is wise. We know some Roadies and they are pretty strong and fast. One isn't as nice your friends so mom doesn't allow around them.


Sagira said...

Sure if nice of you to give her big dog time. :)

Unknown said...

Your big bros and sis are impressive! best left linguini who can throw some sauce on their sass. Hmm but that after party.. did u get to go?

Scout and Freyja said...

Yesh, big dogs need to be with big dogs sometimes.

Pine nuts from China? Boy, that sure is a new one for our momma. We don't get to eat anything from China. Momma told us that a couple of years back China food was killing kitties in the USA and then that led to baby formula and lead paint on baby bibs and in toys. We stay away from that China stuff. They don't have any respect for life at all.

Kisses and hugs

Pat Wahler said...

It looks like a lovely day was had by all. You're very generous to share Linguini with her friends!

KB said...

I'm glad that Linguini gets his Big-dog time. Funny, in one of those photos, his bright spotted coat blended into the world better than the Rhodie's tan coats - I picked them out first!

A new barn sounds like a blast!

Farley said...

Looks like a wonderful day :) We love the pretzel picture!

Dexter said...

That is so considerate of you. As much as Linguini likes you and Frankie, I am sure she appreciates having some big dog time.

You are one good lookin chihuahua! You visited me when my brother Ziggy died and I really appreciated it! We kinda look a little alike. I have a good lookin' cousin Rambo that lives in California too. You should check out his blog if you haven't been there before.
