Dear Randal and Julie,

So far summer camp has been okay but I miss you guys a lot. The first night you left me alone with these people, I walked around and around looking for you. So I was pretty tired the next day. The next night was just fine. Jan won't play tug and let me bite her hands - she is a bit of a wimp that way. But we do go for lots of long walks and I am trying hard not to lunge at birds and people. I did get to play with a Portuguese Water Dog. Jan seemed to think she was pretty cute but I didn't like when she stepped on me. And we played this "find it" game with treats in the grass. I liked that part. I also managed to eat a whole one of those rawhide sticks that I like so much in just two days but I didn't eat the kitchen floor so that's good. I hope you guys are having a good holiday. Jan says work still stinks and you are aren't missing anything.

Dear Rion,

Glad to hear you are settling in and having a good time at Auntie Jan's. Here, Amsterdam is nice though a bit cool. We have seen lots of dogs, though none as cute as you - even a terrier/daschund mix (we think it was a Jack Russell). Lots of tall skinny buildings, etc. Amsterdam is a very pretty city - maybe someday dogs will be allowed to visit too (but then you'll have to take a very long plane trip, and I don't think you'll like that too much).

Anyway, I am going to post some info about our trip to date on my blog ( - you can read about it there!

licks and bites,
julie :)

And then today:

Dear Julie and Randal,

I had a great day today. Auntie Jan came home early from work just so we could go out side – something about a *&&^%%$&^% file she said. Any way, we walked way far along the river and I was learning not to bark at rollerbladers and skateboarders. Then Auntie Jan was giving people treats so I would not be shy. It's funny that all the people I met were nice looking, clean shaven men in their 50's. Hmm, that's an interesting coincidence. Any way, right now I'm flaked out on the floor in the sunshine with my ball and kong close by.
