A letter to our guests - by Lee and Phod

Editor's note: It is Thanksgiving in Canada this coming weekend and Grammie, the Big Guy and their 2 labs are joining us for the weekend. Should be fun!

Dear Tendra and Barley,

We are excited about your upcoming visit. Phod looks forward to meeting Tendra and we look forward to playing with Barley again.

We thought it may be helpful to send you a letter to help you prepare.

The rules in our house
Barley
We have to say we are pretty luck and Lady doesn't have too many stupid rules. We are allowed on the furniture. We are allowed to take things from the counter (the kinda yell but they don't mean it). We are allowed to chase the wildlife outside.
There are only really 2 things we can't do:
1) pee and poo on the floor. That really makes Lady mad.
2) Chase or play rough with the cats; Lady doesn't seem to understand that the cats want us to play and chase them. She gets very mad when we do this and their are consequences for it, like going into solitary.

What to pack:
Lady says we have to try and share with you. We hear Barley is really good at destroying things, so we will be putting our special things away. This is what we think you should bring:
-your kongs - we only have 2 and sharing those will be hard
-Bar's blanket. We don't really have an extra blankey he can use.
-lots and lots of rawhide treats. We know you get them everyday. We don't have any, so we think you should bring lots and share with us.
-your food dishes - we don't have extra lab sized bowls.
-your food. Lady says we don't want dogs with upset stomaches from a new food. We think that can be fun.
-your leashes. Maybe we can go on some fun walks or go to the beach.

The itinerary:
You can't live with our Lady and not feel the need to make plans.
This is what we have planned, but being far more flexible than our Lady are open to suggestions.
Thursday evening: Dinner, drinks and play
Friday - breakfast, walk, maybe a swim if the weather allows (our Lady loves wet dogs in the house), play, nap, play, nap, dinner, play, nap
Tendra
Saturday - see Friday
Sunday - see Friday
Monday - breakfast, a last play before we say goodbye.

We look forward to seeing you and wish you a safe journey.

Love
Hailey Bug and Phoderick Von Lickdenstein (aka Zaphod Bebblebrox)
