Holiday time!

Pickles will soon be on holiday break, and Rufus will have his best friend around all day for two weeks! Both sets of grandparents are coming to visit on Friday, so there will be lots of fun and excitement in the Pickering household!

Sunday afternoon

The Pickering family has all of their holiday decorations in place, and Rufus hasn’t torn off any bows…yet. Mom and Pickles are holiday shopping today while Dad and Rufus take a Sunday afternoon nap.


The holidays are upon us! It’s Thanksgiving week and a short one in school for Pickles. Nana and Papa will arrive tomorrow, and Rufus knows that means special treats and lots of attention! From the Pickering family to yours, Happy Thanksgiving!

Messy weather

Pickles’ school will have early release today due to the upcoming bad weather. It will be a weekend of inside fun for her and Rufus. Pickles is already looking forward to playing hide and seek with her best friend!

Beach Dining

The Pickering family is going to a restaurant tonight with beach views. They are dining outside, so Rufus is allowed on the patio. It’s a beautiful day for an outing!

Labor Day weekend

The Pickering family had a fun Labor Day holiday, and now it is back to school for Pickles! Mom will take Rufus to the vet today for his yearly exam, and the two will pick up Pickles from the bus stop this afternoon. Be a good boy, Rufus!

First day of school

Tomorrow is the first day of school for Pickles. Rufus will miss being with his best friend, but he and Mom will walk her to the bus stop in the mornings and meet her there in the afternoons!

Holiday weekend

Pickles and Rufus had a great July 4th with Nana and Papa. They still have a few more days together before her grandparents leave to go back home. We hope you have a safe and happy ending to your holiday weekend!
