more joy of carrots

now that the weather is pretty good most days, mom thinks we should go to the beach every afternoon, do the stroll, talk to the other dogs and their peeps. It's really not my thing, I find it kinda stressful but Sniffers loves it - so we compromised - I stay home and enjoy some fresh pulled carrots while mom and Sniffers do the beach thing - I don't miss going along, they don't miss the carrots, and everyone is happy!

Arrooooooooooooo

 

Multi-tasking

Big buzzword these days, multi tasking - well I don't know about you, but I just can't handle it, I have to focus on one thing at a time.

for example, mom is in the kitchen cooking and bits of food fall on the floor - at the same time Sniffers is in the window barking her head off - what to do?? I want to back up Sniffers, but I also want to clean the kitchen floor - it's sooo stressful - but guess what wins most of the time? Yup, food !!!

aah 'tis spring, and the pawrents have started cleaning up the garden. They planted some carrots last fall which just kind of sat there over winter, but now they are starting to grow so mom's been out there every day thinning them out - and she tosses them onto the lawn - oh boy oh boy I'm right there, I love to help in the garden !!

Arroooooooooooooo

 

Scavenger Hunt

so it's a cool overcast day, and mom decided it would be a good time to clean out some kitchen cupboards. Ever ready to help I got into a dog bed to watch the proceedings, when all of a sudden mom knocked over a box of rice krispies, which spilled all across the floor! Did she hurry and scoop it all up? Nooooooo! she left it for me to take care of !! BOL BOL

I got there first, then Geneva dove in too and we both worked like mad to clean the floor! Pretty soon we had it all eaten up, now we're just gonna watch and hope something else falls that will require our help !!

Is this a good day, or what?!!!!

 

My Gotcha Day

Well it was the third annifursary of my gotcha day yesterday and I received some nice pressies and wishes from my dogster furiends. Did I get presents from the pawrents? No! A car ride perhaps? No! I got a poodle sister, OMD.

Two days ago we had visited a friend who breeds poodles, we met several poodles (yawn) but didn't think it was going anywhere....just a visit, right..... Wrong !! Last night a car stopped in front of our house and a man came in carrying two poodles - my eyes went wide, I barked, mom shushed me. The pawrents talked to the man, they laughed and smiled at the poodles...next thing we knew the man was leaving with only one poodle and the other one stayed here. We learned her name is Geneva and she was up for adoption; the second one was the man's companion.

mom told us that Geneva and a couple of others are 7 years old and all need new homes; the breeder re-homes the seniors as new pups arrive. I immediately felt sorry for Geneva and put on my best face, it is after all strange and new to her after being in one home for 7 years, so I guess it's really her gotcha day too, and we will have to celebrate together from now on.

come on Geneva, let me show you around the garden - but no touching my blueberry bushes, ok ?

Arroooooooooooooo

well dangit, there are hardly any blueberries left, and mom broke the awful news, they won't be back til next year!! What's a girl to do - I was so upset mom went to the store and bought some - YES !!

I just did a sweep of the yard, I see there are several apples on the tree, not ripe yet but looks promising, hopefully that will keep me snacking for a couple of months.

... but I will miss those little blue berries, arrooooooooooooo

 

Blueberry Hill

this is our first summer in this house so we have been anxious to see what comes up in the garden. Surprise!! we have three big blueberry bushes, and they are really producing. "We" go pick some several times a day and eat them fresh right off the bush!

I stay out after mom quits cause the birds have also discovered this treat, so I chase them away, darned if they are gotta get our berries! Then of course I have to go over every inch of the ground "just in case" some have fallen and been missed! they're too good to waste !

Dad laughs at me, but tonight he dug through his old records and came up with Fats Domino singing, "I found my thrill on blueberry hill".

Indeed!!

Love those little carrots

OMD do I love those home grown carrots. Dad planted some a few weeks back and now they're eating size.

Mom pulls one or two, washes them off, and leaves the whole thing, tops and all, on the lawn for me to do as I will, and I don't waste any time!

Once the carrot is eaten I start on the rest of it, its not as good as the carrot of course, but I spend a lot of time chewing and spitting, chewing and spitting!

I am lovin' this !! BOL BOL

 

She calls me Kitchen Witch

I love to eat, and I love love kitchens! When mom cooks I am right there beside her willing to help any way I can. I do not leave the kitchen unless she does, and then not until I have thoroughly checked the edges for any lingering crumbs or other goodies that need cleaning up.

According to Wikipedia, "a kitchen witch can provide good luck and ward off bad spirits. For centuries, Norwegians have hung this good witch in their kitchen. They believe she has the power to keep roasts from burning, pots from boiling over, and sauces from spilling."

Yup that's me - roasts, pots and sauces - right up my alley !!

'excuse me, I see a morsel that needs my attention....

 

parade, fireworks and a belly rub

There was a really great parade in our little town yesterday to celebrate Canada Day. Lots of floats and great decorations and people throwing candy - but not dog treats - gotta complain about that one !

The day long celebrations wound up with a fireworks display at 10:30 pm. mom was worried about my sis Sniffers who does not like fireworks, so half an hour before they were to start, she fed us a little bit and got us outside for last potty in case it was too scary to go out later.

We were a couple of miles from the fireworks centre but we heard them loud and clear - some of the fireworks even made the windows rattle. Our reaction was different this time - Sniffers had curled up in a dog bed and gone to sleep, didn't even seem to notice the noise, but I was a bit unnerved by the booms and started to pace a bit.

Mom knew she shouldn't make a big deal out of it and reinforce that fireworks are bad or anything, but she did pick me up and give me a belly rub for the whole time the fireworks were going off, which was 12 minutes. A 12 minute belly rub, isn't that some kind of record, should we call Guinness ??!!!

Arrooooooooooooo
