Two hundred and forty three years ago, a scrappy bunch of New World folks declared their independence from the British Empire and we’ve stay scrappy ever since. Happy Birthday, America from the Knucklehead and the Ninja. While there won’t be a tank or fly-over at the Ranch, we hope your ‘howliday’ is safe, filled with great food and fun shared with friends and family.
Live, love, bark! 🐾

You might enjoy this take on July Fourth that recounts my first up close look at fireworks. https://petersironwood.com/2019/05/06/corn-on-the-cob/
Simple, peaceful and dignified – nice. Well done and Happy 4th July to Sam and Elsa
Thanks. If only it had stayed that way on the fireworks. ☹️
Yuppers, we are a scrappy bunch! And loud apparently ~ there are lots of boomers goin’ off right nows, and Ma hopes they stop soon…not because they bother me so much, butts because they interfere with her beauty sleeps! (and she needs all of that she can gets!)
HAPPY 4TH OF JULY GUYS!
Stay safe and quiet…
Last night was a living hell on the boomers. Poor Sam and Elsa were terrified and I was worried Elsa might have a seizure. Luckily she didn’t but Sam was a basket case which kept me from sleeping for the second night. I’m beyond grouchy today because of those jerks. If they want scrappy, they better watch out for me!!
I’m not so sure that the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution are read anymore. They don’t have any pictures or “LIKE” buttons.
That’s a very strong possibility. 😟
They’re all decked out for the fourth! Red, white and woof!
Happy 4th Monika.
I like that…red, white and woof! Pawfect 😊
I wish we were getting a flyover! That was always one of my favorite parts of going to Nascar races. 🙂 Guess we are not special enough….ha ha.
Happy 4th to you and the gang!
My wish came true…you have pretty scarves like we do! xox Xena
Happy 4th of July. xox Lucy
Happy Fourth of July! We bet you look properly pawtriotic!
Yes, We The People. The pups are adorable as always.
Have a fabulous Independence Day. ♥
Thanks. Hope yours is equally fabulous.
I think there should be Poodles on Parade on this British Treason Day.
I could be convinced of poodles on parade. 😊
We just had a parade and hot dogs, now for a nap. Hayyy 4th to you.
Happy Fourth of July to y’alls,
And to you and Mary! 🇺🇸
Pawkisses for a Happy Independence Day to all of you🐾😽💞
You two kids look awesome! Very patriotic. Have a happy 4th! xoxo
Love and licks,
We are having a very quiet day at home with the peeps, but we are all very thankful for the wonderful gift of freedom we have here in our country.
Happy Fourth of July!!!
Woos – Lightning, Misty, and Timber
Happy 4th of July! No fly overs here either. Got the one dog curled up on my lap. Who needs fly overs when one has dogs! 🙂
Ain’t that the truth?! 🇺🇸
Happy fourth Monika and kids.
Right back to you and yours! 🇺🇸
Scrappy for sure and I imagine a few of them now may be rolling and writhing in their graves if they have an ear to towards DC… But let’s not politicize the 4th of July. I mean who would try to do that for their own narcasistic reasons?… Sorry I digress. What I meant to say was I hope you and the ranch hands have a great 4th. Here at the Golden K the girls have all been fed, watered, and walked and are now napping at my feet. Holly and I are off soon to historic Columbia, CA to see the parade and eat a hot dog (or two) and basically get our red white and blue on. We’ll return home to the Girls where we will hang out, listen to my old 4th of July mix tapes, BBQ, enjoy a “few” libations, and wait for the bats to come out. Whew! I’m exhausted already. Have a star studded day!
😉Here’s to a star-studded non-politicized day. Red, white and blue ear rubs for the Golden Girls. 🇺🇸
Have a great fourth!
Happy 4th dear furiends! Love your photo! Have a great day and be safe!
Right back atcha! 🥰
Happy Independence Day!!
Nothing like patriotic knuckleheads! Happy Fourth!!!
Hope yours is safe and happy.
There won’t be any tanks or fly-overs here, either! I’d like to shove those tanks down 45’s throat – or maybe up his butt – however, I won’t get on my soapbox here. Have a safe and happy Independence Day! I hope Sam is feeling much better now and able to enjoy your festivities! Ducky continues to send Sam POTP just in case he still needs it. 🐾🐾 And I send Sam & Ninja ear and belly rubs and hugs to you!!!
Soapbox away, my friend. Thanks for the well wishes. He’s stubbornly hanging on to whatever it is that ails him but hopefully will get back to full strength soon (and now Elsa has picked up a stomach bug). Hugs and ear rubs for Ducky. 🥰
I still feel scrappy…
That’s the spirit!
Happy Birthday to the USA… have a wonderful day with all the good things… and without that awful firework stuff
We hope to lay low and stay cool but maintain our scrappiness. 🇺🇸
