Casualties of Guy's Weekend

We were all just sitting around enjoying a cold beer under a tree about 2 hours into the weekend. Someone made the comment about there being no squirrels around...Despite all the oak trees. Someone else made a comment that maybe all the dogs running around may have something to do with it. We laughed and opened another beer.

We went on to other topics when a third person noticed something coming to show us something. I think the phrase he used to alert the rest of us of the new development was "Holy shit!" We turned and there she was proud as could be, her tail wagging uncontrollably. A mad dash for our cameras ensued. I got a couple good ones before it was time to regulate.

Surely she didn't chase it down a kill it did she? Did she chase it up a tree and did it fall out? We know it didn't get hit by a car. We know it had recently expired. Was it an old critter too slow to get out of the way of the Tess Train? We will never know...

It was a great mysterious way to start a Guy's Weekend. What happens at Guy's Weekend stays at Guy's Weekend. And that's good because if I type anymore, my liver pains would start acting up again.

Who knew she was such a bad ass?

So much for one of Molly jumping off the dock, eh? This one is wayyyy better.

P.S. "Regulate"?! Like Warren G?! You shut your mouth. That's almost as funny as the pic!

can't you at least tell us about the texas bbq?

If Tess becomes any cuter, I'm afraid I'll have to quit reading your blog... It'll just be to cute to look at!!

SFG- I wish we could confirm the last thing that squirrel saw before it met its maker. Until then, I'll think she heard us talking and was eager to prove a bunch of idiots wrong.

SD- Unfortunately, the lake was so low that any real dock leaps would have been discouraged. There were a couple jump offs/brace for impact ones. I wouldn't want to hurt her street cred by posting any of those. Word.

Mazing- I was late on the way there and missed the bbq lunch. We were all kind of late. We did enjoy a nice shrimp boil on Friday and some succulent ribs on Saturday. The squirrel was ok. Could have used more seasoning.

Red- Tess is an incorrigible, annoying piece of dog. She wakes up 30 minutes before the alarm goes off, she digs giant holes in the back yard and she cuts off cable service to all the neighbors. We like Molly the best...Tess does get a few points for sparing my cable though. Oh, and we'll toss her a few more points for teaching me how to spell squirrel!

Can Tess be hired to go after our chipmunks? Just a thought...the distance is too far for her to travel for the amount I could pay!

Hey I found your blog through Grins :)

I just had to tell you I LOVE looking at pictures of your doggies. I love Goldens.

My Golden actually just passed away so looking at yours makes me happy :)

I'm thinking the whole squirrel thing was just a cover. Tess and Molly are after all "girls" along on "guys" only weekend. You know they watched everything so they could report back to Dr. Dolittle. ;o)

Jill said...

Maybe I'm too urban for that pic but all I can really say is YUCK.

Snow White said...

Sounds like a good time was had by all! But are you sure you can remember... perhaps all that "what happens.... stays..." stuff is just 'cause you can't remember what you did. I'm with Jade... I want to hear what the blondes have to say! ;)

Grins said...

HA!!! Rainey and Cody have a stuffed one from the A.K.C. I had to look closely as yours to make sure it was real. Perhaps one of the boys mentioned getting some tail and the girls were trying to be helpful?

Golden Dreams said...

Gross! Did she gargle?? LOL

Aw, my Fenway would be in awe of her. All of his life, he tried desparately to catch a skirlie. She's our hero!
