Doggie Bucket Lists

Abby Lab here.  Mom was reading a book about someone making a "bucket list" of things they want to do before they go to heaven..  It had boring stuff like parachuting and bungee jumping and traveling through Europe.  NOT ME!  I'm going to have a MUCH more exciting list!

  2. That is a great list ABby!
    Hazel & Mabel

  3. We LOVE your list, Abby. We may add some of those to our list, if you don't mind.

  4. Wow what a great Bucket List!!
    I think my list would also include: chase a possum down from a tree, and dig for treasure on the beach!!
    Lots of licks, your good friend Morrie!

  5. Clearly you are living a worthy life to have so much checked off your list!

  6. This is a perfect Bucket List and brightened my day 100%. You keep on checking off the fun stuff!

  7. Best bucket list EVER!!
    Jakey & Arty

  8. I think dropping the ball in Mom's wine was the best on the list. Maybe you could add dropping something dead, like a mouse, in it next time. Oops, don't tell your Mom I said that!

    1. That would be Epic Lucy! We just won't tell Mom.

  9. that is a mighty fine list... I will adopt pooping in the car and eating the furmily dinner immediately... maybe I can combine the two things?

  10. That's a great list. I'd have to say my bucket list starts with actually catching a squirrel. I think that can be accomplished if we get a twirl-a-squirrel birdie feeder. I can wait until it's good and dizzy and then … zoom! hehehe
