A report from the home front

Hey everybody!! It's Mason!! Can you believe it??

It seems that with mom out of town, I was able to finally get the laptop away from my bratty brother & have my chance to be heard! Don't worry, I'm taking good care of the little guy, making sure he stays in line and not going too crazy without mom here to control him. There have been lots of games of bitey-face ...

... Snuggling when he finally slows down...

And even making sure he doesn't get lost in the deep snow when we go outside.

Brutus is a pain in my labrabutt, but truth be told I do actually like the little guy. Just wish he was a bit less clingy sometimes!

So much for personal space...

But mostly, I wish he would just relax and realize that mom ALWAYS comes back!

You out there mom??

Oh, and I wanted to share this photo mom emailed us from Arizona. She took Flat Brutus out there, and it seems like he is as likely to get in trouble as the real Brutus. Look at this prickly situation he got himself into:

Yikes! I think were are MUCH better off here at home after seeing that! Don't worry mom, dad & I have it under control. Just come back soon & bring us some pressies, OK??

Last but not least, I want to take this rare blogging opportunity to thank my brother-from-another-mother, Dexter (Mango's little brother, AKA Pee Wee). He was so thoughtful and gave me this fun award! ME! My very own award, and for once I don't have to share it with Brutus! Woohoo!! Thanks, Dexter!!

Aww! I was blog hopping and come over to yours when I saw the picture of Mason. We also have a dark chocolate lab whom is getting a little gray around the muzzle. Our Charlie is 7 years old.

Oh, Brutus~ I know how you feel little one. It breaks my heart when momma leaves, even for a short time. I pace and pace around the house until she gets home.

Sending you lovely Frenchie hugs and big Puggies kisses from your girl Stella.

nicely done Mason! We needed cheering up today and you really helped. I love the snuggling and bitey face pics! You are a prince for keeping an eye on Brutus while Mom is away. Hope she comes back soon with Pressies!

What a great big brother you are, Mason!!!

I love the 'flat' Brutus idea!! That is perfect for dog-less trips! But...where is the flat Mason?? :p

Well done Mason - looks like you take good care of your little brudder. We're giggling at the idea of your mom running around the toofie people with flat brutus.

Mason, you did an excellent job with your post. Nice pictures and narrative. Perhaps you should do more posting. I'm just sayin'.

Bijou said...

Hey Mason it's terrific to hear from you. I knew you would keep Brutus in line while mom was away. Little brothers can be a pain so I completely understand. Congrats on the pawesome award!


Oskar said...

How great that you and Dexter have bonded. It sounds like you are doing a great job of holding down the fort!

Sounds like you're keeping things well under control Mason. I bet it's tough work keeping the Brute in line.
