Mommy has been somewhat preoccupied this week butt, today she took us to the park! After a nice long walk we ran over to our favorite place, the playground! There we met two of the cutest little children. Michelle and Todd.

Hey Todd, you can let go now, I do this all the time!

Riley! How do you expect me to slide down this thing with you on top of me?

We made it Star!......Geeeze, why can't I ever do anything alone?

Well here we are back on the red slide......Yea, and we're still joined at the hip!

Hey buddy, are you look'n at me?

Sorry Dude, I just wanna be your frend!

To all of Riley and Star's friends, please forgive me for not keeping up with your posts as I should. This past week has been very hectic and I guess you could say, I have the blahs.

A good friend of ours is loosing his battle with Cancer and is under the care of Hospice. Please bare with me for the next week or so. I will try to catch up when I can.

Also, I will not be posting DEAR STAR this week. I hope to post Star's column next week so there is still time for your questions.

We love and miss you all!

Stephanie, Riley and Star's mommy.

How nice you got to go to the park, and I hope those human pups were nice to play with. In a few of those pictures you look like a 2-headed maltese-hydra! A cute one though...
Hope your momma gets rid of her blahs soon. We know all to well how hard it can be when a friend is not well!

We enjoyed seeing you two at the park. In the UK dogs are not allowed into the play part of the park so we never get to use the slide!
Glad you had a good time.
We are really sorry to read about your friend - so many doggies struggling right now.

VERY sorry to hear about your friend that isn't doing very well. Just take one day at a time and try to be there and help them make it through it. It is so hard to watch someone you care for go down hill. :(

We are very sorry to hear about your friend who is sick - we are sending over lots of purrs and prayers for him. We know it is hard when someone has cancer - our mom's mom had it and she tells us about how hard it gets. Just take any time you need because we know everyone will understand.

And well, those pictures are super adorable - and it is so cute you made friends with the little kids - and it seems like they really liked you both a lot!!
