Dog Day: Happy Father’s Day!

“Hey, Elsie, it’s Father’s Day! Maybe Dad will come out and play soccer with us.”


“Seriously, Chaser, you are just too naive. Dad doesn’t want to spend his special day kicking a soccer ball! Now, this Mickey Mouse ball, well, that might be a different story. . . .”


“I know! How about this tennis ball! He could throw it and I’d run after it and then he could throw it again and then I’d run after it again, and then he could throw it again and . . . . that sounds like fun, right?”


“Pssst, Chaser, let me tell you a secret. Dad doesn’t want to play with a tennis ball, either.”


“So, let me just relieve you of that ball. . . .you’re welcome.”


“See what you did now, Chaser? You had to go and whine on me for stealing your ball! Now all we get is a walk with Dad. Oh, well, I guess any time with Dad is good, right?”

Happy Father’s Day, everyone!!

  1. So cute, Ricki! are we ever going to get to see a pic of HH?

    • Cheryl, he’s camera-shy. I’ve been working on getting him to go in front of the camera for 5 years now. . . no luck!! I guess you’ll just have to come to Toronto and meet him in person, right? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. oh that is cute – we have fathers day in Sept so no hoo har here over it but hope you had fun

    • Yes, I’ve read that your Mother’s Day and Father’s Day are at different times from ours–makes sense, though, to have them both when the weather is more lovely!

  3. Okay – cutest post of the week award!

  4. I had to come over to check out the annual Father’s Day photo session for the girls! I am not disappointed! Such cuties. ๐Ÿ™‚ But that pitiful soccer ball. LOL Maybe I’ll meet the HH on my next visit. ๐Ÿ˜‰


    • Thanks for checking it out, Shirley! And yes, Chaser got hold of that ball and kind of deflated it. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I do hope you get to meet the HH next time–whether here or there! xo

  5. Aw. So darn cute.
