Lola took a moment this week to think about all the people currently being affected by forest fires. The smoke here has been really heavy, with advisories in place to keep people indoors. Considering we are hundreds of miles from the nearest fires, we can only imagine how hard it’s been for the people close to them. We need some rain please!

I think our pets have been taking a bit of a vacation, there seemed to be fewer of them showing off their adorable traits this week. Luckily, the ones who showed up really turned up the cute factor to a 10!

The top right photo is the adorable Rocky. King of the humans who live to serve him, he made everyone panic when he went missing this week for six hours. Don’t worry, he made sure to watch all of their worry from a bush nearby. Then he had the catdacity (audacity, but in only a way that cats can showcase) to demand a belly rub. He got the belly rub.

Bottom left in the precious Dottie. As we all know, renovations are very hard on the entire family. Dottie has been losing parts of her yard for the past several weeks and she’s now decided to ensure her nap times are undisturbed by blocking worker access to the site. Lola applauds this tactic and calls for her fellow dogs in the area to join Dottie in her protest. Bring your own bed.

The bottom right is sleepy Stella. She really wanted to learn how to play poker, but she didn’t realize you had to stay up all night long just to play it. Stella now thinks she may prefer playing Sudoku as part of her breakfast routine. I’m not sure she understands how much math is involved, but maybe there will be some bacon to stimulate the mind.
