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