We, the Moy Dogs

The Dogs of Jackman Ave started a fun game, called MeMeMe. We thought we should play, even though we're about a month behind everydog else. Hamish and I thought we'd start (and we won't tag anydog since mostly everyone's already done it I bet). That us up sharing the dog bed.

Roooooo! What a great post! Especially the picture! Hamish, you look so HANDSOME! And Pippin, you look very lovely, as always. And Hamish you look so HANDSOME! Did I say that already?
I like to sleep in my carrier, too - even though there isn't a door on it. I like having a nice den!
Hamish, I wear a green collar, too - only mine is plain, no veggies. Dave says green looks nice on us redheads! We have LOTS in common!
I can't wait to hear about everypuppy else!
