This place is crazy!

Being the strong-willed dog that I am, I have noticed lately that everyone seems to have forgotten that I, Josie, am the boss of everything. I try to tell them and they just ignore me. So, I go to my woodpile and bark at all of the mysterious creatures that live there.

I like Katie and I'm glad she came to live here. She is not weird like Captain is, so we can romp and play. The only problem is that sometimes Gus tries to play with her while I'm playing with her! The nerve of that dog! I have to chase him off all of the time!

 

Gotta love the woodpile!

Carolyn and Brian bought a new house so that I could have a big backyard to play in... then, Brian made a giant woodpile for me!

I love the woodpile! It makes me so happy. I can climb on it, explore in it, or even just bark at it.

One day, I jumped in the woodpile and I cut myself. But, who cares? Sadly, I cared later that day when Carolyn took me to the emergency vet to get stitches.

 

Missing my toe, but not too sad about it

My foot was hurting me for such a long time. Carolyn would take me to the vet, but they didn't really help me. So, she found me a new vet.

The new vet thought that I had cancer, so she did surgery on my foot. She found that I had a tumor on my toe so she removed my nail and toe. It felt really strange at first.

A few days after my surgery, the vet called Carolyn to tell her that I don't have cancer! Carolyn told me that I am a very lucky dog.

Now, I feel better than I've felt in years! I can run faster than Gus and Captain so I make them chase me around the yard. Carolyn & Brian laugh and smile when they see me running. They know how happy I am!

 

Today was the craziest day!

Today, I went with Captain when he took a ride in the car. When we arrived at our destination, I got so excited and just couldn't stop barking! Captain tried to make me be quiet, but Carolyn got in his way so I just barked and barked! It was great!

They took me into this room with lots of other dogs. It was really very strange. Eventually, I made some friends and had some fun.

The only bad part was that they made me stay in the kennel with Captain during our breaks. He always rains on my parade and doesn't let me have nearly as much fun as I'd like to have!

I was so tired that I slept all of the way home! I am still so tired now and would like to just curl up for the rest of the night!

 

It has been so cold this week!

The weather had been nice and warm, which was good for my old bones. But then it got so cold outside!

I used to taunt Carolyn when it was time for me to go inside. I would try to run and play so that Carolyn would chase me around the yard and stay outside with me. But, on Tuesday, Carolyn wasn't feeling good when I wouldn't come inside. She fell asleep and I got very cold! But soon, she came back out to get me and then she hugged me to make me warm. I got into the chair and Carolyn put a blanket on me so that I would feel better. It really worked!

Now, I come inside right away when Carolyn tells me to come inside. I can't take any chances about getting stuck outdoors again. That was really no fun!

 

Doggie prison stinks!

I am now in doggie prison. The name of this prison is Lucky's Pet Resort. Ha! This is NOT a resort, this is a prison. I am in a five by nine foot cell with Gus. All of us dogs on our cellblock clang our tin cups on the bars and look at each other with mirrors stuck out from the bars.

Carolyn & Brian & Captain Dog are having fun and they are laughing at us, I know it. Gus always has such a positive attitude and he tells me that Carolyn & Brian are coming to get us soon, but I think that they have just decided to let us rot here in the joint!

 

I saw Jane today!

I just love Jane. She is our old petsitter. She used to come to visit me when I was really lonely because Carolyn & Brian were in Italy and Gus was up in the country (and I didn't even know about Captain yet). I was so happy to see Jane, even though Jane was hiding in a Santa suit. Jane can't hide from me! I love her!

I did my happiest happy dance when I saw Jane! Jane is better than Carolyn because Carolyn is always trying to make me do things that I don't want to do. Of course, Carolyn feeds me and bought me that fancy bed, so I really can't complain too much.....

 

Dog park yesterday!

Brian & Carolyn took me to the dog park yesterday. It was great. First we rode in the car, then we walked. Then we got to the dog park. I played with a bunch of new dogs - some huskies, labs, lab mixes, a pit bull, and a big German Shepherd. There was even a little chihuahua, but that little guy was much more interested in Captain Dog.

It was great! I barked a lot! I hope they take me again today!

 

Carolyn's home!

Carolyn came home from Prague on Sunday....I really don't like it when she's gone because Brian doesn't know how to fix my food properly. I have explained to her that she ought not go again, and I'm sure her boss will listen!

 

What a fun weekend!

Yesterday, I went to the dog park. Today, I got to go for a walk.

I love it when Carolyn says, "Do you want to go for a walk?" I dance around and feel so happy and young. I get even happier when she puts on her walking shoes because that means she is going to take me outside! Yipee!

I also love it when Carolyn says, "Do you want to go for a ride in the car?" Oh, yes, I always want to go for a ride in the car. The only downside to this is when I bolt out the door and run away from Carolyn - she tricks me by asking me if I want to go for a ride, then she gets me in the car and only gives me a very, very short ride. I fall for it every time!

I felt so good today that I kissed Carolyn three times! I haven't kissed her for weeks but I couldn't contain my happiness because of all of the fun that we have had this weekend!
