Mom, I got up all by myself!  On a Monday!  And now you expect me to turn around to get my breakfast, too?!  How could you be so mean?!

Happy Father’s Day to all the dads!  Their jokes may be corny, but we moustache you:  Don’t you love them?

Are you wondering when a joke becomes a dad joke?

image

When it becomes apparent, of course!

Or is it when the punchline becomes fully groan?

Look, Mom!  I’m taking my third not-bath of the day!  This means I can skip bath time tomorrow, right?

I have shoved aside my hidey hut and claimed this corner as mine!  No one enters this corner without getting past me!

Wait…is that radicchio you’re putting on my plate?!

Mom, this chair shrank again!  I can barely fit my head and one leggie through the railings now!  Fix it, Mom!

Mom was so busy this weekend that I got only one snack a day after breakfast!  I was so upset that I flipped over EVERYTHING, but then Mom put it all back?!?  Do you know how much work that was, Mom?!?  And how HUNGRY that made me?!?

It’s Belmont Day!  There is no Triple Crown on the line this year, but we are rooting for War of Will to become only the 12th horse to win both the Preakness and the Belmont, but not the Kentucky Derby.  He’ll have his work cut out for him by Tacitus, who hasn’t raced since the Derby and boasts Tapit as his sire.

No matter who wins, we hope today’s race goes smoothly.  From Maximum Security’s disqualification as the Derby winner to Bodexpress’s jockey-less run in the Preakness, there’s been more than enough drama this Triple Crown season!

This year, Mom invited a horse and puppy stamp duo to watch the Belmont with us.  Just like I did with last year’s Belmont guest, I instantly fell in love with my new puppy friend!

I LOVE YOU TO THE MOON AND BACK, PUPPY FRIEND!

YOU LOVE ME, TOO, RIGHT, PUPPY FRIEND?

(I was so enthusiastic about my new puppy friend that Mom has over 60 photos like these!  🤣)
