"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."
Happy 4th of July!!!!!!!!
I may have been born in another country (i.e. Sweden) but no other country feels like home the same way the US does. I officially became an American after taking the Oath of Allegiance but I became an American by heart several years before that.
I am proud to be an American every day of the year, but especially today!
Happy Independence Day!
United We Stand!

A Wild Child
My parents are coming home tonight, and I am heading home to the city... all by my little self. The dogs will stay in the country as we are heading to Stockholm on Saturday. It will suck leaving without a dog, but I have lots of studying to do tomorrow and we are are leaving early, early on Saturday...so I should survive. :)
Ya' all have a fabulous day today -

Did some obedience training with James in the afternoon. My Gosh, since the training has been resting since Mid-May so much has been lost. Hmmmm, we have a long way back. :(
Tonight, I had dinner with my friend A – we both "pigged" out on salads. Yes, I know - I'm pretending to be a healthy eater. Hihihi…
I just came back in from having been out with the dogs again. They are passed out on the lawn right now … check them out (took the pic through a closed window). Do you think they think they are cool or what??? Guarding the yard, trying to chase off every dog that passes out on the road. Damn freaks, that's what they are. :)

We already have a springer from our "labrador time" that I will have my dad hook up to the bike, and Jay and I should be set to go. I bought a springer in the US too for Alih and Carlos but it was only used a few times. Alih never wanted to run next to the bike as he was scared being that close to it, and Carlos just did not have the energy. hihihi... My Big Baby Boy. My Carlosis was like Ferdinand. He'd prefer to smell the flowers instead of running around acting all silly. :)
Right now both babies are lying down next to me, snorting their butts away. :)
Hot puppies after the hike.
...and when done, this is how he looked like.
My crazy water dog - managed to have him sit still for a few seconds before he was back in the water, doing what he does best. Swimming like crazy!
The old man is proving he can retrieve a dummy too.
The beautiful, crazy puppy...

James and I are going to the country tomorrow morning where we will join up with Alih. My parents on the other hand are coming to the city for work, which means that Alih, James and I are going to enjoy some alone time for a few days. There will be lots of hugging and kissing going on... :)
By the way, we just weighed James and he weighed 29,7kg (about 65-66 pounds). I think he will weigh quite a lot by the time he is fully grown, considering how young he still is. He already looks like a little bodybuilder, not that that should come as a surprise considering how active he is - Mr. Super Active. :)
A little update on Jay's new food - he still likes it. Yeeesss!!!!
Time to watch some mucho interesto soccer right now. It is Germany - Spain in the final. Very, very exciting! :)
