I'm Free!

Nothing but good news here pups!

Mommy and Daddy got back late, late, late Friday night and I got sprung from "camp" first thing on Saturday morning. Mommy was so glad to see me that I got to go through the drive through at McDonalds (I got my own hash brown)!

Then when I got home I found out that there were presents for me from Santa Paws! Some are from my grandma in California, some are from the nice people at the spa, but I just know that Santa must have stopped by while I was gone to leave the rest.

Oh, and those biscuits up front? Those came in a package from my BFF Renna! They're yummy gingerbread flavor - thanks soooooo much Renna!

There is a bit of bad news:

Now my Mommy can give me a mani-pedi whenever she wants, but I'm thinking that I'm not so thrilled about this present. Clearly this present is from my Grandma, since Santa Paws wouldn't have left me that, right?

Secret Paws!

Whew - it sure has been busy around here, what with the tree falling down and then heading off to camp so that Mommy and Daddy could go home for the holidays!

Things were so busy that a few important tings got over looked - like a bunch of my DWB Holiday cards are still sitting on the table at home. Mommy was going to take them to the post office on the way to the airport, but she forgot! And she forgot to send my blankets with me when I went off to camp - I know I'll be fine without them, but sheesh!

One thing that didn't get overlooked is my Secret Paws package! The furry nice bunny Cadbury sent me these super great bouncy balls. They're a ton of fun and so far pretty darn durable, since I can be a bit hard on my toys :-) And Cadbury knows about chewing stuff, as all buns do!

First I have to inspect the package:

Then Mommy tosses me one and I go crazy!

And finally I settle down for a nice chew...

It would have been nice to take my new toys with me to camp, but I guess I;ll have something else to look forward to when I get home!

If I don't have a chance to checking again before the holidays I hope you all have a safe and happy holiday season!

Woofs and Wags to you all!

My Yard!

Hiya Pups!

Sorry to be away so long - Mommy's hands have been busy making and addressing all the holiday cards. There were cards for family, friends, kitty friends and of course all the DWB card exchange cards! Then of course all the running around getting ready for the holidays - she's been one busy Mommy.

So I was going to tell you all about how busy Mommy and Daddy have been, how I've been so ignored and how they are about to abandon me for a week to go home to California for the holidays. But then this happened!

The winds were soooooo crazy this morning that the tree BROKE! Now it may not look too bad in this picture, but get a load of this...

And the very, very worst part - look what happened to my fence!

My Daddy worked all afternoon to try and fix the fence as best as possible, but I still don't like what's happened to my yard. How am I supposed to patrol the perimeter if there isn't one!? And even worse, now there are going to be workers in my yard trying to fix this! Maybe it's not such a bad thing that I'm off to camp soon - I don't know if I can handle this.

Turn About

Mommy always says "Turn about is fair play" - well I never really knew what she was talking about. And then I found one of Bert's beds, and I decided to sleep in it - just like he always sleeps in mine!

Ha ha - what do you think pups, pretty funny huh?!

P.S. - Sorry for the quality of the picture, Mommy took them late in the night when she saw this!

Happy Gotcha Day Beaux!

Today is a very special day! It's the furry handsome Beaux's Gotcha Day!!!

His kitty brothers are throwing him a big surprise party today! And I can hardly wait! You know kitties really can throw a great party (I mean remember when PB&J threw me that great surprise party?). So I'll be over visiting most of the day - I haven't had a chance to see him in ages (no thanks to my Mommy!).

Come on by if you have time!

We're Close!

I can't believe this - look how close I am to Jake! It's like he doesn't even care that I'm laying down here on the floor - this is so cool.

I know that he absolutely hates me, but it's so exciting to be so close to him. Maybe I could just lift up my head and to sniff his paw or something. Or maybe I won't push it!

Family Friday

I know most of you already know about my kitty siblings, so today I thought I'd introduce you to my Aire-family! These are my Mommy's "sisfurrs"!

This is Sassy, she's 12 years old and she's my Grandmommy's favorite Airedale ever! Trust me she is sassy, but she was named for her ginormous paws when she was a puppy. She's a big girl, she's really tall (almost 27" at the shoulder) and almost 70 pounds (don't tell her I told you that - she's way bigger than me and could beat me up, yikes).

And this is Sadie. She was in Airedale rescue and she came into our family when she was almost two and now she's 10. Sadie is originally from Kentucky and is almost as big as Sassy - so they've always played well together. Sadie recently had both of her hips "done" - she had hip dysplasia in both hips and had to have an operations to get her feeling better again (and get back to chasing squirrels).
Hope you enjoyed meeting more of my family!

Getting Close

I tell you pups - Mommy is falling down on the job on so many levels - first the blogging, and now this!

Hopefully this gets taken care of quickly, so that I don't have to eat the kitties crunchies again (well, it's not like it soooo bad)!

Sad News

I'm sorry to have been gone so long - Mommy obviously has been bizzy doing her stuff and not helping me. But then we got bad news that has made us very sad.

Our sweet friend, Mr. Samwise, has passed away. We didn't even know that he was sick.

Mr. Samwise lived with his Mistress Winter in Mixlowe, United Kingdom and they recently went through some house renovations (my Mommy said that could stress a pup out a lot!). He loved to go for walks, even though his health meant that he had to take it slow. Mr. Samwise and his Mistress always had such kind words for us, so we only hope that we have been able to return the favor.

I'm sure that Mistress Winter would appreciate some kind words during this difficult time, if you could stop by her bloggie.

It's a Good Thing

It's a good thing I like this Tuxie cat, 'cause he sure does hog up all the best sunny spots in the house!

And he hogs up all of my Mommy's time! He was out for hours and hours the other night, and Mommy was so worried that she didn't help me write on my bloggie or visit any of my friends. He's a pain in the tail I tell you!

Mommy promised that she'd help me visit this weekend - we'll see if that dang tuxie gets in the way, harumph!

Happy Howl-oween!

Happy Howl-oween my friends!

I'm super excited, and we're all set for the big night.

    Halloween Kerchief - check
    Loads and Loads of Treats - check
Is really anything else?

Oh yeah, and the ever so handsome Beaux is going to help me bark at all the little kids - woo hoo!

Hope you all have a great Halloween too!

New Bed!

I'm sooooooo excited! Mommy and Daddy got me a new bed!

As you can see, my old bed was, well - tatty would be the nicest thing I could say about it really. In any case, it was long overdue. I kept asking, but it took forever!

It turns out that it took so long, because Mommy and Daddy were "discussing" which type of bed to get. Mommy wanted something squishier, Daddy wanted something smaller - I just needed a new bed. I'm perfectly ok with the type of bed I have, it's just needs to be newer - and it is!

So I gave it a good sniff-over. Smelled really new, and maybe like some other dogs. Mommy put my blankets on it to try and make it smell a little better - I don't know if it's going to work.

Yep - it's not going to work, it smells like new toy, not new bed! So I had to play with it, shake it, and drag it about a bit.

Even Bert had to check out my new bed (he's always trying to sleep in my bed - like he needs such a big bed!).
Eventually I settled right down in it and it's been great!

Funny Friday

Hee hee! Bert got stuck in my beard - guess that'll teach him to try and smack me across the nose (though I did try to bite his head, so...).

Our Big Adventure!

I got to go on a really big adventure today! Mommy, Daddy and I went on a drive to look at the fall colors - and it was so much fun. It was my first adventure in the new car, so I had to sit on a cloth - Mommy and Daddy weren't ready to have all my fuzz on the seats (but I think I look pretty good on the orange fabric!).

It was great - I got to share some McDonald's breakfast. It's a special treat for all of us - Mommy and Daddy even had an extra hash brown to share. And even though it was a bit cool out, they let me have the windows down for a bit.

First we drove up the coast of Lake Huron, we started by stopping at a rest stop that had stairs down to the beach. So we stopped, and looked at all the lovely colors.

We had to go down lots and lots of stairs, but it was worth it once we got to the beach.

We looked at the lake and enjoy the blustery day.

We stopped at a neat-o harbor - only dogs weren't allowed, so I had to stay in the car while they walked down the pier. It was a really long pier, but they walked fast so I wouldn't be by myself too long.

Then we stopped at a lighthouse and we got to walk around and see all the sights - there was a huge park to play in. But Mommy went off to take a bunch of pictures, so I was really excited when I found her again!

It was a really long drive home, but we did stop at the apple orchard for cider and donuts - so that helped :-)

I sure hope we can go on another adventure again soon!

Where Is It?

I just know there's something in here!

I'm not sure what or where it is - but I just know it's got to be fun!

Sunday, October 12, 2008

Wow - Thanks!

Even though I've been gone for so long, you guys still thought of me! Look at these lovely awards from my friends.

From Isis:

From Dana:
Thanks so very much Isis and Dana! I'm going to pass "Best Bud" award to Willow, Renna, Abby and Mister Samwise. And I'll pass the "Premio Dardos" award to my sweet Beaux, Luc & Remy, Mr. T-Bone Beasly, and Mistress Blue.

Also, Mommy and I really wanted to thank you for all your kind words about my Granddaddy. Mommy and Daddy got back from California just fine, and we're all still settling back in.

While they were away I got to stay with my friend Leo and his Mommy and Daddy and then I went to stay with my friend Sophie and her family (she lives on the beach so I got to play in the lake). I had a really great time, even though I missed them a lot. I wish I had pictures to show you, but we were so busy having a great time I forgot to remind anyone!

Oh, and I've had a talk with Mommy and she's promised to help me blog more, even though she's been really busy at work since she got back!

Mommy is Broken

Mommy just found out that our Granddaddy passed away today. And now our Mommy is very broken. She's going to be gone for a while, she has to go back to California to be with her family - so we'll be gone for a while too. I'm not sure when I'll be able to visit or post - but right now I have to go take care of my Mommy.

Bark Like a Pirate Day!

Avast ye landlubbers! Today is "Talk Like a Pirate" Day, but we've renamed it "Bark Like a Pirate" Day (and for all you kitties out there you can "Meow Like a Pirate")!

My wonderful first mate Beaux and I are setting sail to help the crew of the Black Furrball on their important mission - in search of buried treasure! I've readied the George and Bert, Beaux and I will sail along side the Black Furrball in their adventure!

Would any other pup or kit like to join in our quest for adventure and glory?!

Let's weigh anchor and hoist the mizzen!

I've never had a pillow before - but this one sure is lumpy!

And sometimes it bites, that's not normal for a pillow is it?!

(for those of you that don't know, this is my little brother Bert, he's a really great kitty even if he is lumpy and bitey)

Up Late

A lot of nights I like to settle down into my bed early. I can keep an eye on things from there, but usually I end up asleep way before Mommy and Daddy go to bed. But sometimes it's best to stay up late with your Mommy. I stayed up late and look what I got... Ice Cream!

And then, I got skritches in my very favorite spot!

Wow - I've been missing some great stuff!

p.s. sorry the pictures are kind of blurry, but Mommy was laughing a lot while she was taking the pictures :-)

Best Toy Ever!

This is my favorite toy - it's my basketball. All right, maybe not the best toy EVER, but it's definitely one of my all time favorites! I've had it for ages and ages (well since I was a year old anyway)!

I've tried a couple of different balls outside - there was a soccer ball (I ate the skin off of that one), and then there was the dodgeball (popped it in seconds), and of course there are all the tennis balls (those tend to get run over by the lawn mower). My Auntie Sadie loves to play with a football, so Mommy and Daddy looked for one but couldn't find one so they finally settled on a basketball. When they got the basketball they thought that it wouldn't work - since I couldn't really get my mouth around it.

But there are a couple of secret to it:
1. It's not a full sized basketball - it's a "girl's size", but since I'm a girl that's just fine right?!

2. Due to a lot of time outside and stuck in the snow last winter, it's lost some air.

3. My mouth has gotten bigger! Ha ha!

Long Time No Bark!

Hiya Pups!

I'm so sorry to have been gone so long. I'd like to say that we've been off being fabulously busy doing great stuff. Or I'd like to say that Mommy's been way too busy to help me, but that's not it either (not that she hasn't been busy). The true story is that I've been bored, we haven't done much lately - well until the weekend...

We got to go to the beach on Sunday! You should have seen it - sun and water, kids and all the pups! There was music and boats and all sorts of great stuff! And I met a couple of cool new friends to play with, they were with all my Mommy and Daddy's friends.

Here's Max! He's a Chihuahua - but he acts like he's as big as a Great Dane :-) Max didn't like me much even though I wanted to play. But by the end of the day we got along okay (though it's easy to get along when there's steak involved).

Sophie and I had to get some shade, since it was a little warm. It's nice of her Mom and Dad to put this umbrella up for all of us with a fur coat on! We all got into the lake a couple of times, so between the water and the shade we all kept pretty cool.

Next Maggie and her family arrived - she's a miniature Schnauzer, she was very nice. And guess what, she likes to go on the boat! See that funny orange jacket? It's a life vest so that just in case she falls out her Mom and Dad can grab her easily.

And then Maggie went swimming. I tried to go with her, but my tie-down wasn't long enough. The funny thing is that after Mommy saw this, she thought I might like to go for a swim - but I didn't (I don't really love to swim, but I don't mind getting in to cool off).

Here's me and my Daddy hanging out - at the end of the day. We had a really great day, in fact Daddy said I was a really great girl all day!

So he decided to let me off my line and here's what happened...

Ha ha - was that fun, I ran and ran! But there's good news, I came back!

'This is my Mommy's favorite picture of the day - look at how wet I got! Mommy is still brushing sand out of my furrs (I'm headed to the salon next week!).

It was a great day!

The Wrong Food!

I got a really cool treat today - instead of my normal crunchy food, I got this:

Kitty Crunchies!

So it was a cool treat, and I suppose that I should be excited that I got to eat the kitties crunchies without getting yelled at. But Pups, I have to tell you that it wasn't given to me as a treat. Mommy gave it to me because she had forgotten to buy my crunchies! That's right, she forgot that I was out of food and so she gave this to me instead.

I'm not sure how I feel about this - on the one paw, I'm so excited to have kitty crunchies in place of my normal crunchies. But on the other paw it means that Mommy wasn't paying attention to me or my needs!

So what do you think Pups, should I be mad at Mommy or not?

Home Early!

Both Mommy and Daddy came home from work early today - it was pawesome! We sat on the deck and then we all walked down to the river. We played ball (loved that) and keep-away (didn't love that as much). And I got to run around and sniff all the spots where all the other critters live.

It's been ages since we've all had time to walk together in the yard. Look how all the weeds have grown down my path to the river!

Oh, I found the smells of the fox or maybe the woodchuck - someone was here anyway!

I got to get right down on the bank. I almost got in, but Mommy and Daddy said no!

We played a bit of ball and I was such a good girl (I barely ran away at all). We even had time for some scritches under the willow tree.

It's been such a busy summer, so it was nice to take some time and hang out with the family!
