Bruised, Babies and Visitors

Hello again everyone! It's been almost two weeks since I've been able to do a little blogging, and I do have to say I miss you all so much. A lot has been going on, and Jessie apologized for a lack in photographic documentation, but she has been a busy girl.

The past holiday weekend (Psst: Happy Late Independence Day!) the park was full with campers and hikers so Jessie didn't have a moments peace. Then Tuesday afternoon Jessie tried to fly down a flight of stairs and busted her foot up pretty bad. She didn't actually tried to fly, but slipped down the last four steps and twisted her foot. She went to the doctor and got x-rays. Luckily nothing is broken, but the swelling and bruising still hasn't gone down. She says she will be fine in a couple of days but if she doesn't get better Pedro and I will have to pull her around on a sled or something so we can still go for walks!

For the 4th of July, Jessie went down to the beach she used to work at a few years ago to watch fireworks. It looks like a pretty place, but is not dog friendly. Hmph... While there Jessie had to call Parks Police to rescue a drunk guy from drowning in the bay! Apparently he had a little too much to drink while celebrating the holiday and couldn't get himself out of the 2ft deep water he was swimming in. Once the Police got him out, he wound up hitting his head on a hand blow dryer in the bathroom while trying to blow dry his hair. He was taken to the hospital and bandaged all up. But Jessie wound up missing all of the fireworks! At least she got a nice picture of the sunset for me to share with you all!

In other news... This past week two of Mom's human relatives have been spending some time with us. Mom's niece Chrissy and her husband Daniel came all the way from Texas to visit us! They are pretty nice humans and came to spend their anniversary on Long Island. Even Pedro doesn't mind having them in the house too much.
About a week or so ago Leah's boyfriend Moe was out to visit us as well. He's from PA and goes to school with Leah in West Virginia. He was a nice human too, and again Pedro didn't mind him much.

Jessie's boyfriend from NC is still out visiting this summer. Like everyone else he has to go home pretty soon, and I know Jessie is going to miss him, but then I'll have my girl all to myself again. Jessie and Brian took Pedro and I for a walk the other night and it was really nice. I met a black lab down my the water and we got to sniff each other out for a bit. Pedro didn't like him too much, and when Brian went to pick him up he tried to bite back. I know he didn't mean it, and that Pedro likes Brian, but now Brian is calling him the Devil Dog. Jessie laughed and said something about Pedro not being a pastry. I'm not quite sure what they mean, but I know my little brother is no Devil.
Jessie never got around to taking me to the park. But she did get a snap shot of the baby birds. They still have a little growing to do before they leave the nest, and Jessie is hoping to be around for it. In the picture you can see four little babies, but there might be five. We're not too sure.

Well I hope to be back to a normal blogging schedule pretty soon. I'll try my best to getting around to every ones blogs. I'm sorry again I haven't been around much. Hope to hear from you all soon!
