Our pal, Mogley G. Retriever, taught us an important ratio – hands to dogs ratio. That ratio helps figure out how much ear scratching and petting can occur based on how many hands are available for dogs in the household. As you can imagine, our ratio is pretty challenged. Thus, we love it when we have visitors like we do this weekend and that ratio improves. Our cousins, Tartok and Ruby, joined us, so we were at 8 dogs, but we were also at 5 people, so 10 hands. Trust us, 10 to 8 is as good as the ratio gets except when tourists crowd around our Jeep to admire us.
So do we act any different when we have guests?

P.S. – Thank you for all of your notes and emails. We are all safe and sound from Hurricane Irene. Living in the far western part of North Carolina, we did not even get any rain. We hope all of our friends up the Eastern coast are all safe.
