My Daddy! is a Geologist and likes to collect rocks. I too consider myself a Geologist because I also collect rocks. This is Daddy's window sill rock collection:
This is my window sill rock collection:
Now, I'm not saying I'm a better Geologist than Daddy! is. He has been doing this for many more years than I have (I'm only 20 months old!!), and people call him a "real Geologist", but it's all about consistency and Daddy's just not out there collecting rocks like I am every single day.

I bring them to him hoping we could have a scientific talk about their properties and grains, but all he does is wave a cookie in front of my nose to distract me so he can STEAL MY ROCK! I think his Geological technique is unfair, but I do love my cookies.

I do make sure to leave my marker on my collection, as you can see here:
Our Geological connection is just another reason why I am such a Daddy's girl. Maybe one day I will also pack a mine bag and fly away on Blue Tuesday.

Gromit could probably get a job at the mine working security detail with Chops, but he seems to be leaning toward gardening, like Mom. He has always looked good in green.

I am a Lake Dog

Mum and Daddy! brought us to the lake this weekend to beat the heat of the city.
Daddy! found me this great stick. I say "me" because it was mine. I shared it with Gromit - I did not let him take it from me. I've been teaching my little brother how to retrieve water sticks.
Gromit is a water dog. He thinks he is a Golden Retriever and swims like one too! We all thought he would sink, but the little guy dog paddled himself around the lake quite easily.
We swam and swam.
I don't always like to give me stick back....

...but when I do I can hardly stand the anticipation; I never know which direction Daddy! is going to throw it....
...and off I go!

Gromit and I would like to suggest to Daddy! and Mum that we go to the lake everyday.
