Dad was at a barn raising this past weekend. Mom didn't go and neither did we. It was an hours' drive one way and she couldn't very well take one of us and leave the other one home plus the temps were very hot! It's okay - we didn't mind this time!

Dad called mom about 2 hours before he came home on Sunday and told her that he was bringing her a nice big piece of barn raising cake and mom told us that she would share with us!

We had dindin and waited for dad to come home with dessert! He drove in around 5PM but where was our piece of cake? You promised, dad!

Dad made up some stoopid story about a food fight with OUR piece of cake! Should we believe him, Mitch?

His shorts do look kinda messed up! Do you think this could be cake or does it smell more like sawdust?

If it was cake what kind do you think it was? It kinda looks like blueberry stains to me! I guess it could have been chocolate too! Dad didn't mention that part and he did dismiss this issue pretty quickly!

Do you think he's fibbin' or do you think it really happened? He mention getting drenched by a HUGE downpour too with thunder and lightning! We didn't get any rain! Is this story starting to sound more fishy by the minute to you?

His pants are bearly wet and he told us that he was drenched through to his underwear!

What do you all think? Is dad holdin' out on us?

If you'd like to see a slide show of some of the raising here's the link: http://www.rep-am.com/slideshows/062808/ The big booming voice you hear 90% of the time is dad's! The food fight is has been left off! I wonder why?!

So until next time.............

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch


  1. Oh.. I hope your dad gets another cake for you doggies... Is your mom mad at your dad for coming home with dirty clothes?

  2. I'm not sure about the whole food fight thing! It kind of sounds like HE ate the cake on his way home! Did you smell his breath? Mom always does that to us when she thinks one of us is guilty of snarfing something off the counter.

  3. Hmmm, we're getting the feeling that something is a miss here. Sounds like Dad got the hankerin for some cake, and pigged out before he got home, and the whole food fight thing is just a coverup. Too bad Maggie and Mitch - no cake for you this time.

  4. wooooooooooppssss.. but if I were you both, I gonna bite his butt before he take off his clothes..


  5. Yeah, I think your Dad owes you cake.

  6. Maggie and Mitch, thanks for calling by my blog. I popped over to have a look at the barn raising and I was amazed. I'm wondering if that is a usual thing in the US or whether it is a rare occurrence. I have heard of one barn-raising here in Australia, las year, when the members of church built a brick assembly hall in one day. It was big news, because we don't have them generally.

  7. Your dad is totally holding out on you. He ate the cake! I hope to see photos soon of you guys getting cake (or at least ice cream). Twice in two days you were deprived of treats. Not right!


  8. M & M:
    I think your dad should go to the store and buy you a cake and let you two eat all of it!!!

  9. I think you dad have to give you guys 2 cakes and ice cream too...that's the price for make you wait.

  10. A mystery... maybe you need Joe Stains to come from Azrizona and solve it?


  11. You were totally robbed I say!!!

    Lots of Licks, Ruby

  12. I think your dad got hungry on the way home and made up the story about the food fight. I'd forgive him. It looks like he worked hard that day.

    The slide show was interesting. At one time we wanted to build a tongue and groove barn/house like that. Very cool.

  13. He ate your cake and peed his pants ! Shame on him.

  14. Hmm, sounds a bit fishy - I think he ate your cake on the drive home!

  15. He is still bringing you cake,isn't he ?

  16. hmmmm....food fight huh?!....hmmmm

  17. FISHY! THE STORY IS FISHY TO US HERE! We thinkest that your DAD ATE THE CAKE on the way home! That is what we thinkest!

    Love, Putter

  18. This sounds very suspicious to me. Very.

    And you guys deserve a cake!

  19. OMG First you two dont get any ice cream, and now no cake after your dad promised?! You two should go on strike!

    puppy breath,

  20. EAT THE SHORTS! EAT THE SHORTS! Take them and hide with them and chew on them!

  21. Your dad ate that cake! No question.


  22. I don't believe the story at all! He should have stopped and got you some icecream on his way home and then I MIGHT have beleived him.

  23. Maggie & Mitch:

    First - have you checked the truck for crumbs .... Second have you spoke with someone who actually saw him put the cake in the truck???

    Third - we're not buying this "FOOD FIGHT" story - we watched they video and those folks were not eating or playing in the foood .....

    You guys need to talk to him some more or maybe Joe Stains needs to be called in to GRILL your Dad...


  24. Ummmm. something sounds fishy with his story...I would do some more intense investigating for sure. Thanks so much for my barkday card!!!! IT was great! I think I might get some ice cream tonight or something delicious.
    My mum needs a horse barn build, can your daddy and all his friends come and build it, or build it and then ship it....?

  25. FOOD FIGHT????FOOD FIGHT???Run over to the car and check the floor where you will find tons of crumbs AND the bottle of whatever he was drinking TO WASH DOWN THE CAKE and that he spilled on himself while driving(why you NEVER drive and eat cake and drink your soda) Tell him he'll have to come up with a better one...Love A+A

  26. We think he is telling you a story.. Dad's do that sometimes.
    Actually brother Toph took Callie to the lake already yesterday before her accident. He said she got her feet wet but really wasn't to interested in the water..

  27. I thought you'd get the actual piece of cake. That was a trick!

    But, you do look like you liked it.

    What a need thing that your Dad was involved in. The place looks great!

    OMD, I can't believe your Dad said there was cake & then arrived home without it, he even washed the crumbs of his shorts!
    Too bad guys.
    Love 'n' snuffs

  29. She will be back in full force in no time. She is already trying to run in that thing..

  30. Hi, Maggie and Mitch -

    Two days in a row with no treats? No fair! You can come to our barbecue any time. Mama said we could have it all week.

    Love -

    Hershey and Kaci

  31. Those hoomans dun even know how to behave. How could them fight for food? Did they get time out? I think the 2 of you are more well behaved.

    Get dad to make it up to you and your mum by bringing you for extra big serving of ice cream.


  32. Oh no... you guys got the shaft. I bet he ate that piece of cake all by himself. How could he. If I were you, I'd give him a big load of stink eye. That'll teach him to eat YOUR cake!

  33. Well if you didn't tell me that was his voice on that slide show, I would have told you he had gone fishin' instead! ;-)



  34. Hi Maggie and Mitch,

    Gabe and I have discussed your situation and we believe that your dad was pullin' your paw...or tail...or let's just call it what it is. He didn't bring it to you! Now we have to forgive the two legged folks we live with. They mean well, but sometimes...well...sometimes they fib. 'specially when it comes to sharing desserts!

    We watched the video! PAWSOME!!!!

    Woofs and slobbers from your Newfie pals,
    Bella and Gabe

  35. Hmmm, Maggie, if I were you, I'd demand an even BIGGER cake next week for your birthday! And ice cream too, it goes without saying!

    Your pal,


    P.S. Wonder why we never have "apartment raisings" here in NYC?

  36. Your dad ate the cake. Then he poured blueberry juice on his pants. He had all that time to come up with that whopper of a fish tale for you two. When it comes to cake you have to always be suspicious.

  37. Hmmm...Better ask your mum to grill your dad until he tells the truth!

  38. Hmmm...Better ask your mum to grill your dad until he tells the truth!

  39. Hi, Maggie and Mitch!
    Whaaaaat?? A food fight??? That does not sound right!
    Tell you dad that he needs to do something! I'd say.... ice cream tonight!
    Kisses and hugs

  40. hum, kinda suspcious to me! I think you 2 are great investigators and your dad must have mis-judged your attention you both pay to details. Maybe you should ask dad to go get you some more cake to make it up to you. I bet your were drooling all day for that cake too!


  41. Food fight? I'm not so sure, I don't see enough evidence to thoroughly convince me. I still think you deserve another treat since your cake fight was used as a weapon during the food fight. Perhaps some ice cream is in order...

    Your pal,

  42. We think that story sounds a little bit too made up. Did your smell your dad's breath. Maybe stick your tongue in his mouth and lick around a little? We bet it would have tasted like your cake!

  43. Hmm...did you manage to sniff to the bottom of it?

  44. Mmmmm food fight! Think of all the awesome things we could have caught in mid flight!!!

    Then there wouldn't be a food fight...just a lot of fat doggies! Hehehehe! Mmmmmmm cake.

    You're making me drool...

  45. We watched the slideshow and think that is so cool, everyone working together to help others out. Your dad is one swell guy -- so we think you should give him a pass about the cake.

    We're sure there will be more treats for the fourth!!!

    (We saw your pawsome pressies for the whippets -- and we were impressed that you actually know how to count to nine. We just know how to count to two!!)

    Wirey woofs,

    Jake and Just Harry

  46. With the long drive he might have got hungry and decided to try just a bite and then couldn't stop himself from eating it all?!?!

  47. I bet he ate your piece of cake.

  48. We think your dad is telling the truth. He's shorts look kinda messed up.

    Hugs and tail wags
