The Sheriff has put Ace and Joker on probation due to their deliquency in keeping her blog current.  The loyal deputies promised the Sheriff that they’d do a post a month (at least!) to chronicle the Sheriff’s antics during her first year, but July really got away from them.  Visits from Aunt Mary, OK and Auntie, the Sheriff’s christening, girls week down the Cape, Bab’s birthday, the birth of new friends Ben R., Lady O and Billy Boy, and play dates galore.  Ace and Joker can hardly keep up with the Sheriff and her busy social calendar.  (August is nearly completely booked!)  But they wouldn’t have it any other way…as the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

Ace and Joker are committed to clearing their names and getting back in good standing with the Sheriff.  For the time being, they will let her play on the bed (with a chaperone), feed her whenever she wants, and smile at her constantly. What more can a girl ask for?!
