Let Them Eat Cake ... Well, They Did!

Woohoo! We survived Independence Day! Here we are after spending lunchtime trying to catch anything that escaped from Cousin Jen's, Aunt Sarah's or Mom's plates. It was hard work because they chose to be fairly neat.

Mona, Andy and Maggie:

Sammy, Mona and Jake:

Jake ... we wonder if he was dreaming of ribs:

Remember all of the food we said they were going to eat? Well, at some point they decided they didn't have enough so they made a dip. Mona mentioned it on her blog too. It is called Dallas Dip though Mom says it might be called something else if you are somewhere besides Texas. It is made from melted cheese, Rotel tomatoes (diced tomatoes, chili peppers and onions) and cooked ground sausage or hamburger. They were scooping it up with tortilla chips. We did not get any.

And, in honor of our country's birthday, they made a cake that looks a little like an American flag. It was white cake with whipped cream frosting. The decorations are blueberries and sliced strawberries. Now, we know fruit is good for us so why didn't we get any of this either?

We have been reading that a lot of doggies had some real problems with all of the noise from fireworks. After we found a (non-poisonous) kingsnake around 7pm, we had to come inside so the few fireworks that were sounding in our area were too soft for us to really hear. Mom is glad those people were far, far away since we are under a burn ban. We also hope they got caught breaking the law. Dachsies are the only ones who get to ignore rules. Okay, dachsies and all of their doggie friends can break the rules.

I can't believe you didn't get any of the cake. I mean come on it is good for you. What is wrong with those people. Oh glad the fireworks weren't a problem. People aren't allowed to have them here on post so only a few stupid ones try and get away with it. We are inviting all our dog friends over for the 4th next year so they won't have to worry about the noise.

What? No cake? Shame on your humans! Looks like you all had a good time this weekend! Sure glad nothing burned from the idiots with the fireworks in your area. Momma never told me I could ignore the rules. I will have to make sure she reads your post.
Love and hugs,

Our momma made some whipped cream cupcakes and decorated them to look like a flag too. We didn't get a picture as all the hoomans ate them before we could snap a picture for our blog.
