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!

Lumpy

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!
