We are heading out

Checking out the Scotsmen and Women at the HIGHLAND GAMES.
I love camping.
WELL, I LOVE SITTING AROUND A FIRE
AND GETTING ALL THE ATTENTION THAT I CAN GET.
Auntie May is coming, and Uncle Bob and Auntie Meg, and Uncle Ron and Auntie Lois, and Meme and Auntie Becky, well you get the gist.
I will be thinking of you while I am gone.
Mama is trying to get the pictures out of our trip to Maine.
WE HAD A
HOT DOG OF A TIME!
We saw DOXIES
of every size and color and type.
A COUPLE OF 5 WEEK OLD BABIES EVEN CAME BY TO
Anyway, see you when I get back!
Say Hello to Bryant.
THIS LITTLE GUY IS ONLY 6 MONTHS OLD.
He has blue eyes, smiles a lot.
AND LOVES EATING HIS FEET.
What a great little guy huh?
Don't you just
LOVE THOSE FEET.
I AM DEFINITELY A FOOT PERSON MYSELF.
YOU SHOULD SEE ME
CHASING MY MAMA ACROSS THE FLOOR LICKING HER FEET.
WHAT A HOUND!
Bryant's grammy is Leslie and she works at the Mont Vernon P.O.
Mama and she were talking one day
and she started talking to Mama about my book.
Another resident was talking to her about it.
DON'T YA JUST LOVE IT
CHICKA BOOM, CHICKA BOOM?
She wanted to buy one, just for little old Bryant
WHO SHE WAS GOING TO VISIT THAT VERY SAME WEEK.
FUNNY HOW THINGS WORK OUT, HUH?
SO, THANK YOU LESLIE FOR BRINGING MY BOOK
ALL THE WAY TO CALIFORNIA.
KEEP READING EVERYONE. DHARMA HUGS.
Check it out!
This is my
VERY FIRST DOXIE ONLY EVENT!
I am getting excited to go and see
OH SO MANY RELATIVES.
And to think it all started
when MY MAMA LIVED IN GERMANY
HER VERY FIRST, AND ONLY WIENER DOG.
Her name was TINA PUP
and she was a
wire haired dachshund.
HOW VERY COOL.
I love this picture because the first doxie is long haired, just like me and the same colors.
Tina Pup the wire haired had colors like this little guy in the middle above.
Finally our Stoney Wall was black and tan short haired like this guy at the end.
I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO BE
IN THE COMPANY
JUST LIKE ME!!
And, we are staying in a hotel!!
I HAVE NEVER STAYED AT A HOTEL.
SHOULD BE FUN!
I am so excited
Mama is following me around
with Puppy Pee pads.
Oops sorry, I am an old girl.

What is it about people and their pets and movie characters?
Anyone who saw the Game of Thrones know all about the tragedy of John Snow.
Could of been the king of the castle
but instead "did the right thing" and saved the world.
Here is John Snow, rescue kitty living with his Papa's Jeff and Travis.
John Snow is sitting on his own "Game of Thrones".
Papa Jeff says that he loves finding boxes and making them his thrones.
I guess he has had a happier life than our television character.
Anyway, John Snow was a rescue kitty from Papa Jeff's vet
and found a good home down there in Virginia.
He has one kitty brother Jason Morgan.
You can see him comfortably sitting by his
ol pal Yoshi the dog.
Yoshi is a Shiba Inu, a dog breed from Japan.
It looks like Yoshi and John Snow like being couch potatoes together.
My, I remember my days with old Stoney Wall.
We were champions at being couch potatoes.
Thank you Papa Jeff for sending John Snow's bio along.
And thank you everyone for checking in.

FOR A DOG LOVER NOTHING,
AND I MEAN NOTHING
IS BETTER THAN GETTING LICKED BY
THOSE CANINE DUDES AND DUDETTES THAT LIVE WITH THEM.
Last year in November the SOMMESE FAMILY
got into our trailer, Me and Bro Merlin and My Papa and My Mama
went to visit Cousin Drogo and his mama and papa.
DON'T YOU LOVE THIS PICTURE OF
PAPA CONRAD AND DROGO?
DOGGIE LOVE, FOR SURE.
Papa Conrad was
just taking a break from making a
bathing tank for Drogo
Just found the pictures
wanted to share.
It just kinda hits me sometimes about how our lives can be marked,
time can be marked by the adventures
WE (dogs) have with our people families.
That trip, all the way to South Carolina
was the very last trip with my brother Merlin.
And it was the first time I met cousin Drogo.
Thank you everybody for checking in.
Mama is writing this story for me,
I am draped over mama's ankles and she is swinging me
back and forth under the desk,
LIFE IS GOOD.
VERY GOOD INDEED!
Hello Everybody: FB click here to see "THE REST OF THE STORY". www.dharmadoxie.com
This is my cousin Drogo!
Did I tell you he was named for
of course from "The Game of Thrones".
And boy, does he have the
PERSONALITY TO GO WITH HIS NAME!
What a character.
Anyway, he sent me a story that I want to send along.
Hint, Hint, MY THOUGHTS ARE IN RED!!
IT IS REALLY HARD FOR ME NOT TO HAVE A OPINION.
MY NEW BROTHER:
by Drogo Estes
About a month ago,
my humans brought a puppy home.
They call him Samwise,
or SamSam for short.
Did you know that Uncle Jeff and Mama
named a Christmas tree one year Samwise?
I have a mini horse brother Bilbo, a mini goat brother Pippin and a brother cat Frodo at home.
I guess you could say we come from a family
WHOSE ROOTS GO ALL THE WAY BACK TO MIDDLE EARTH).
is small, but he eats a lot.
And he is very fluffy.
Mama Heather has given us many toys and we got a new fence!
This means I can go chase birds whenever I want to!
I am jealous, I want a fenced in yard!
OH MY GOSH
ISN'T HE FREAKING ADORABLE?
YOU CAN'T GET MUCH CUTER THAN HIM.
I am teaching Samwise how to play, go to the bathroom outside, and how to put away our toys.
Mama Heather cuddles a lot with Samwise, but that means I get snuggles with Papa Conrad. Lucky dogs.
The puppy is teaching me patience and kindness.
I wonder how big he will get?
And how much of the food he will eat?
I miss my brother Merlin and Stony Wall so much!
You are so lucky Drogo,
you don't even know.
Sometimes, Samwise annoys me.
But Mama Heather says that I will always be the big brother.
Maybe that means he will give me his leftovers?
I guess having a brother isn't so bad.
Samwise can be my little, fluffy sidekick.
Maybe one day we can go on an adventure together.
Hey come and visit me and we can all have adventures together!
I will teach him about birds, and squirrels,(and chipmunks, oh my!)
and how to give me all of his food. You got it cousin.
Welcome to the family,
Of course named after
"The Lord of the Rings".
Great picture here of ME, the LITTLE GUY and my MAMA!. Another one of Sam Sam, Mama's toes, and me. Hah!!

Hey Kurt over at Hollis Publishing!
Thank you from Me and MY MAMA AND MY PAPA for sending this to us.
HOW COOL IS THIS?
We were at the New England Author's event and
everyone had a sign for their publisher and then we thought about Kurt
and all of the wonderful folks over there.
I mean COME ON, THEY DESERVE RECOGNITION TOO.
So I asked Kurt and this is what they sent. THANK YOU KURT!
It is a little sign with a stand on the back so it stands up all by itself
so that when we TAKE DHARMA DOXIE ON THE ROAD,
PEOPLE WILL KNOW
WHO DID THE WONDERFUL PRINTING JOB
ON THE BOOK!
You would not think that it would be such a great thing,
IN THE SCOPE OF ALL OF LIFE,
but I thought it was cool, AS DID THE OLD FOLKS TOO.
So here I am telling you my story while my Mama is listening to
LOVE SHACK from the B52's and MY SHARONA From The Knack.
Who hoo, we are having a dance party tonight!!
Thanks for listening in. Love Dharma Dharma.

Oh my goodness, the folks came home singing
"Here comes Dharma Doxie!"
Papa says it was so great to see all of the kid's again.
To hear all of the little kids
LEARN THE WORDS TO MY SONG
SING IT LOUD AND CLEAR.
Oh my, oh my, oh my, GO SING IT ON THE MOUNTAIN!!
It was so wild he said to hear children
singing it in the hallway.
The best part of all of this
is that the Title One People
EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THE CHILDREN
with a soft cover copy of my book.
For many of them
THIS IS THE VERY FIRST BOOK
THAT IS THEIR VERY OWN.
THAT ISN'T BAD PARTNER!
Mama signed for me,
EACH AND EVERY BOOK
PUT THE STUDENT'S NAME IN IT.
I WAS SPEECHLESS
WHEN PAPA TOLD ME!
And so my Papa and my Mama got to give a
HUG FROM ME TO
EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THEM. HOW FUN!
Even little Juan (check out earlier story) came over
and gave my Mama a hug.
I don't mind Juan, I love hugging her myself.
I wish I could have been there but it was just
TOO HOT FOR ME. I was home eating "Frosty Paws", doggie ice cream on the couch
while I was laying underneath the ceiling fan.
NOW THAT IS KEEPING COOL IN THE SUMMERTIME, DON'T YOU THINK?
