You ask. Being a good free-ranger!! We have been letting him roam the house for about a week or so now. Saturday me and Coco left for Kansas City and Kevin had to work from 5pm-3am! LONG SHIFT!! Charlie had the roam of the house this WHOLE time. WAY TO GO BOY!! Now you ask, "What does he do that whole time? Sleep?"
No, he guards the house. Literally, it has to be the whole time. You leave and he is sitting in the window. You come home and he is sitting in the window. Kevin said he was in the window at 3am!! What a good boy! Charlie is making sure the house is safe for his mommy and daddy.

We had a wonderful weekend. It was very "Kansas City" and I am so happy it worked out the way it did!
We got into Kansas City about 2:00 Saturday and picked up our entry packets. Me and Coco then headed to Grandma's (Mims, or whoever you know her as!!) and spent some time with her. We went to Petsmart, Panera!! and Hobby Lobby. Now you think "Hobby Lobby?" Yes, we had decided to enter Coco in the costume contest and make her a bee! We need spray paint, piper cleaners, panty hose, wire hangers and some fuzzy black balls for her transformation! She already had a bright yellow life jacket. You see the bee coming together?
We went home and worked on the bee costume for a bit while Joe (my brother) was picking up Valerie (his girlfriend) at the airport. Cario, you would like her because she is from California too!!
When they got home we went to the BEST italian food in town! Villa Capri. Mmmmm…manicotti, bread and salad. Ok…..very Kansas City.
After getting home we "planned" to walk. The weather had other ideas!! In the middle of our walk it started pouring down rain! I mean a HUGE storm!! We got home and sat on the screened in porch and watched the storm. Also very Kansas City!
It cleared up just in time for the walk in the morning and we had a WONDERFUL time! Coco entered the contest but didn't win (She should have!!), we walked our 2 mile in 24 mintues and got some awesome pictures! After the walk we took Coco to The Classic Cup and ate brunch, which was really good too. And yes it is a restaurant that allows dogs on the patio to eat.
We planned to go to Shawnee Mission Park for a swim but because of the rain it was too muddy and we were just to tired. We did take Coco to another little park and let her dream about water and chase ducks.
Coco is very tired, as is her Mommy, so we are off to bed. I think she is there waiting for me. Here are a few pictures but also please check our flicker site too. Many, MANY pictures there too!

Coco, my chocolate lab is the sweetest girl ever. But strange.
A few months ago we discovered she has an obsession with bread. OBSESSION.
I am not joking. I'll have to post a video of her and our little experiment. You put bread and a piece of meat on the floor, guess what she eats 1st? The bread!!!! No kidding.
When I go to the store and buy bread she will sit in the kitchen by the bread until you give her a piece. Once again….no kidding!!!
We also discovered that she LOVES carrots, celery and rotel. Over anything else.
On the pick-on-Coco theme here is a funny picture that Kevin did of her a about 2 years ago. Don't ask me how this came about but it has become a big joke in our family my mom even has a picture of it at her school. AND, yes, she is doing what you think she is……….lol.
