This little mouse on a string was a toy we originally bought for the cats... They didn't really have much to do with it though.. They at least pretended to be interested in it when we tied their favorite toy, rings from a milk carton to the string, but still, they never really paid much attention to it. :) However, it is an absolute LIFE SAVER with Miley!!! :) Just tie an old wash rag to the ring and she'll spend a good 30 minutes trying to untie it.. Ahhh, peace and quiet. :) She's getting faster though... I'm going to have to start tying that knot tighter! :)

This is Miley's new stuffy... Weenie the Weenie Dog!! :) 
Miley says, "Don't even *think* about stealing my toy..." :)

I love this look Miley gets when she sees something out the window..
First pic: "Is that Daddy?? Is Daddy home??"
Second pic: "*sighhh* No.. it was just a squirrel.."

New bed, new collar, new tag, new harness...
Nope. Miley's not spoiled... Not at all...
Miley will quickly outgrow her new bed, but we just had to get it for her. First, the colors are just too cute for words, and suit her perfectly. :) Second, the first time she saw this bed it was laying in the middle of the aisle at the pet store... She went straight up to it, curled up in it, and went to sleep. :) We just couldn't say no. :)

Meet Kacey!! :) Kacey is Miley's new puppy pal. :) Kacey's mommy and daddy (Melissa and Ryan) met Kevin and me at the Green Mountain Nature Trail on Sunday so we could introduce our puppies to each other. :)

Kacey is exactly one week older than Miley, but Miley is just a bit bigger!! That doesn't stop Kacey though... She knows how to stand her ground with the bossy Miss Miley!! :) The trail we walked on was covered with debris... sticks, woodchips, and even pine cones!! Kacey and Miley fought over these "treasures" the entire time... Of course, even though there were plenty to go around, they always wanted what the other had. :)


Okay, this has got to be one of the cutest pictures of Miley ever taken!!! Kacey's daddy is an extremely talented photographer.. He took most of the pictures from our little walk (all of the good ones, anyway :D)!!


"Umm... Mom... what do you mean, BATH??!"

Kacey and Miley walked the entire 2.25 mile trail around the lake!! They were pretty worn out by the end. :)

Miley sure slept good the rest of the night. I guess when you're that tired, you can konk out in any position!!


New Tricks!!!
Miley adds two new tricks to her repertoire!! 
In addition to Sit, Shake, Lay Down, and Roll over, she now does Beg and Take a Bow!
Staring: Miley
Featuring: Missy and Hobbes!

For Kevin's 28th birthday, we all took a road trip down to Florida to celebrate with his family. Miley did extremely well traveling in the car, however when we were stuck in a one-hour traffic jam in Birmingham, she wanted to get out of her crate and help navigate. ;) 


August 25, 2006
Are we there yet?



August 25, 2006
When are all these cars gonna MOVE??
 
 

August 25, 2006
I give up. I'm just gonna go to sleep until we get there.

Miley's Pink Lifejacket - AKA The Suitcase :)
With all the new carry-on restrictions, do you think they'll let us take this? ;)

Miley didn't really like swimming, but she was very good at it, and look really cute while doing it. ;)



Take a peek for yourself... Watch Miley's Swimming Video :)




 
 
Mmm... A warm towel... That's much better. :)

 

All that swimming is hard work!! I'm pooped!!

Tonight Miley's friend Kacey and her parents came over to our house to play and have dinner. Miley and Kacey sure did love to FIGHT!! :)
 
 
But they were also very sweet and gave each other kisses. :) 
 
   

Kacey: "Listen very carefully, and I will tell you the secret to Boston Terrier World Domination..."
 
 
Miley sure did love this toy that Kacey brought over...
They fought over it the whole night! We had to run out and get one for Miley! 
 

 
 Boston Terrier Tug-of-War
Here is a video clip of Miley and Kacey playing Tug-of-War with Kacey's "Indestructible Toy" :)
Note: This video plays much better with sound :D
