Last night mom loaded me and Chloe into the car, then picked up her friend Nancy. We went to this place and when we got out of the car, Chloe was all excited. Well, this made me excited! Chloe was like totally bouncing off the walls and talking up a storm. We were in a building that smelled kind of funny and a little warm. We walked up a ramp and mom opened a gate and within seconds... SPLASH! Chloe was in a pool. I just stood there and watched. I didn't know they put pools inside buildings. In Texas, our pool was outside. Plus, this pool was about a foot down, which was kind of scary too me. It didn't seem to bother Chloe, she liked jumping off this "dock" that mom called it. There was a ramp that Chloe used to get in and out. Me, I am use to steps to get in and out of a pool. That's how I did it in Texas. Plus, it was about 100 degrees in Texas and I can tell you, it wasn't that warm in this building. Anyway, I watched as mom and Chloe played. They were having so much fun. Mom kept telling me to come on in the pool with them. I whimpered and whined and finally decided to join them. So I made my way to the ramp and slowly made my way to the water. Well, let me tell you, that water was COLD!!! Remember, I'm still pup and don't have my full coat, plus, I'm use to swimming in Texas with high air temps and like 85 degree water temps. I can tell you, this water was NOT 85 degrees! I wasn't so sure I wanted to get do this swimming thing, but mom and Chloe looked like they were having so much fun I had to try it at least once so in I went. I swam over to mom and Chloe and Chloe almost drown me as she swam over to greet me. Mom scooped me up and held me as I shivered. I was really cold and a little scared. Really, I wanted to get out and mom knew that so she took be back to the ramp and let me swim my way out so I'd learn what to do. I was happy to get out of that freezing cold water! For the rest of the swimming session, I pretty much played on the deck when Chloe would come out of the water and watch when Chloe was in the water. A couple times mom tried to get me to go back in and I thought about it, but didn't. One time, mom did put a little life vest on me and took me back in and I'll have to admit, it was a little easier to swim, but it was still cold and that was my major problem with the entire thing. I don't like being cold, I'm a southern girl so heat is my friend. Mom said she'll have to buy me a skinsuit to help keep me warm until I get my full coat in. She said for my first time I did really well and she's sure that once our pool (we have a pool?) is opened, she knows she won't be able to keep me out of it. As long as the water isn't this cold, she is right about that. Even though I didn't swim much, I still had a really good time.

Well, I don't know if it was a full moon or what, but us doggies had a bad day in our house. It started at the barn. Me and Chloe were playing and having a good time while mom was grazing Tequilla. But then Chloe was really bad and went after our friend Madison. I was shocked that she did that cause Madison is such a nice doggie and Chloe was so mean to her. Mom was really upset at Chloe and wouldn't let her play with me, which was good and bad. It was bad cause I couldn't play with her, but good cause it gave mom and me one on one time to play. It was kind of nice not having to compete against Chloe for the frisbee and mom told me I did really good bringing the frisbee back to her. Mom and I got to play by ourselves for about 15 minutes and it was awesome! After Chloe got off of her "time out" we went back to playing, but Chloe wasn't as much fun because she wsa upset about getting in trouble so she kept pretty low key. Oh well, I guess that's what happens when you get in trouble. Of course, I got a taste of that first hand when we got home cause then it was my turn to get in trouble. While mom was in the shower the tide turned. I have this thing with coasters. I don't know what it is, but I like them. I pulled a bunch down off the end table and there were these really neat ones made out of something that was really good to chew. Well, you know me the chewer, I just had to chew them up. Needless to say, when mom got out of the shower, she was NOT happy! I got in a lot of trouble and was sent to bed early:( It was close to my bedtime anyway, but still, if I hadn't have done that, I would have had a little more time out of my crate. Stupid me. I think mom was even more upset because these were special coasters that had daddy's name on them that grandma got him one year from Christmas. Opps! I shold have stuck with the other coasters. I could tell mom was still a little upset this morning, but she didn't say another word about it so hopefully it's water under the bridge and I don't do it again. But, you know our puppy brains, we don't always remember that bad stuff and not to do it again. Anyway, mom said tonight Chloe and I are going swimming. I haven't been swimming since I left my home in Texas and I can't wait! Especially to swim with my big sis. Mom said she can't wait to see how I jump off the dock. Dock? What's a dock? Guess I'll find out tonight and I'll let you know all about it:)

What a weekend I had. Friday didn't start off too well, actually, I spent a good part of it in my crate. Mom and dad both were working. Dad did come home early, but then he was back out the door. This was test week for him at work and he passed so they went out to celebrate. Mom came home for about 20 minutes then left again to take Megan to a haunted house for her birthday. I wanted to go, but she said doggies weren't allowed and I would be scared anyway. Me, scared? I don't think so! I would eat up those scary monsters! But, it didn't matter what I said, mom still didn't take me. Daddy did come home a few hours later, but boy was he acting funny. He was talking funny and all he wanted to do with lay on the sofa and sleep. Brett came home with him and was there for a little while, but then he left. I tried to get daddy to play with me, but he was out like a light so I just entertained myself. I found my duck and I started to rip the stuffing out of it. I had stuffing all over the floor. I mean all over the floor! Daddy didn't say anything cause he was sleeping. After that, I had to poop. I tried to get daddy up, but I couldn't. I whimpered and whined and even walked on his head and chest, but he was snoring so loud and he just wouldn't wake up. Mom wasn't home and I didn't know what to do cause I really, really had to go. So, I did what any dog would do, I went on the floor. Hey, I couldn't help it. I tried getting daddy up, but I couldn't and I had to go! A while later mommy came home. If you could have seen her face when she got home... it was priceless. When she saw all the stuffing on the floor and the poop and me sitting on daddy, daddy sound asleep and Chloe looking at her like, "I didn't do it mom", it was just priceless. What surprised me though, was that she didn't yell at all. I couldn't believe it! She took me out to potty then came back in and cleaned up all the mess. She said it wasn't my fault cause daddy was out of it and she's sure I tried to wake him (which I did)so she didn't blame me. Thank goodness! Safe from this one.

I saw some really scary things last night! First we went to the barn to take care of Tequilla. Chloe and I played frisbee while mom did her thing with the horse. At least this time Tequilla didn't go crazy like last time. When we got home, dad was sitting in the garage which was kind of strange. I didn't know why, but I really didn't care cause that meant that Chloe and I got to stay outside and play. We were running around in the yard when mom called us to come over and sit by her chair. She held us both by the collar and that's when I noticed these things coming up the driveway. I have no idea WHAT they were, but boy were they scary looking! Their faces looked all melted and their eyeballs were popping out and they said "trick or treat". Chloe and I both barked at them and I growled cause I didn't want them anywhere near me or my family. Dad didn't seem to be afraid of them and even gave them something out of a bowl. I don't know what it was, but these scary things took it, then left...thank goodness! A little while later, more strange looking people came. Mom said it was the Simpson family. I don't know who the Simpsons are, but the lady had blue hair. Yeah, you heard me right, blue hair! Shortly after that, some more scary things came and it was like all the freaks were out tonight. I just didn't know what the heck was going on. I kept close guard on my family and as long as they didn't try to hurt us, they could take what they wanted from that bowl. That seemed to be all they wanted so that was fine. We all stayed out for a little while then went in the house... thank goodness. I took about all the strangeness I could for one evening. I don't know where all those weird looking things came from, but I just hoped they didn't try getting into my house. If they did, they'd have to get through me and Chloe first! Okay, well, maybe not cause we'd probably run the other way, but we'd put on a good show anyway:) With all the excitement from the evening I was pooped and crashed. I had no problem going to bed when mom said it was time, but cause I was so tired, I didn't totally empty my bladder and woke mom up in the middle of the night to potty. She wasn't non too happy about this, especially since this was the second night in a row. Opps,sorry mom:(

Mom won the battle and we got to go to the barn last night. She had to feed daddy first, but then we got to go and not worry about what time to be home which was nice. When we got there, all the doggies were out. Pete, Polly and Madison were all there and I loved it! Chloe on the other hand, well, she was getting in trouble because she kept chasing Madison away. I don't know why Chloe keeps doing that to poor Madison. Madison loves to play with us, but Chloe is so loud and chases Madison then she won't play with us:( Pete and Polly, well, they don't really play, they just hang out. Anyway, all us doggies hung with mom while she let Tequilla graze. Mom did throw the frisbee a few times, but it was so windy, that didn't work too well. After a little while of grazing, she took Tequilla for her walk and Chloe and I walked along. So far, so good. When we were done with the walk, mom thought it would be nice for Tequilla to graze a bit and roll in the pasture beside the mini horses. Tequilla was being very calm so mom thought it would be okay. Chloe and I followed mom to the pasture and mom took off her halter. Tequilla walked away then rolled. Nothing unusual. When she got up, she shaked off and went about grazing. I sniffed around and was checking things out when all of a sudden...Tequilla was hit with the mad horse disease!!!! She bucked straight up and came up off all 4 of her feet! She spun around and snorted then bolted right at me. I ran as fast as I my little legs would take me! Mom yelled, "Run Echo, Run!" She didn't need to tell me that cause there was not way I was getting run over by that beast! I made it under the fence, but I kept on running til I was sure I was safe then I came back to check out what the heck was going on. I met mom at the fence and saw Tequilla acting like a nut. She was prancing around, rearing, snorting and just plain acting crazy. Mom said it was the mad horse disease. That's what mom calls it when Tequilla flips like that. All I can say is she scared the poop out of me when she turned and ran full steam after me. Those hooves came thundering after me and I didn't think I was going to make it. Mom said she never saw me run so fast! She said Tequilla didn't want to hurt me though, she just wanted someone to play with cause she's been couped up for so long because of her injury. Sorry, mom, but she's a bit too big a playmate for me so I think I'll pass. Tequilla finally settled down and mom took her back in, but I made sure to give Tequilla a very, very wide berth.

Last night Chloe and mom went to Chloe's CGC class so I spent the evening with daddy. Guess what? We didn't fight at all! I know that's hard to believe with our past record, but we didn't. He played with me, rubbed my belly, took me out to the bathroom (and I actually went for him) and I slept beside him on the sofa for a little while. Daddy isn't such a bad guy after all:) I guess I'm getting a little older and realizing that things I'm suppose to do and he's getting a "little" more patient with me so we're starting to come to a happy medium. He did get a little mad at me earlier though when mom first came home from work and he was trying to fix something on the fence. He had the gate open and that mean beagle, Oregano, from next door was in our yard barking at daddy so I ran out the gate after him and dad got mad at me cause I didn't listen and stay in the yard like I was suppose to. Sorry, I was just trying to protect us. Some protection I was though cause when Oregano came chasing after me, I ran with my little stub between my legs... BOL:D Other than that, dad and I got along great. Honestly, I think he was more mad at the gate and Oregano then me anyway.

I had a weekend sleepover at Tanner C's house and it was soooo much fun! I'm not sure where my family was, but Friday morning, Tanner's mom, Barb, came and picked me up and took me to her house. I got to play with Tanner for a while then I had to go to my crate for a couple of hours cause she had to work. That didn't bother me at all cause I was pretty tired from playing with Tanner. When she got home, Tanner and I got to play again until bedtime. I really like Tanner, he's a cool dog and plays really good with me. Not too rough, but doesn't baby me either.

Mom almost missed my last set of puppy shots last night. For some reason she thought my appointment was Thursday, when in fact it was last night. Fortunately the vet left a reminder message for her. I had my second trip to Dr. Libby's office. Again he was really nice and he gave me two shots this time and they didn't hurt a bit! He said I am a very health puppy and mom should keep up the good job training me cause I'm very well behaved too. While I was at the vet I met the tinest kitty I ever saw in my entire life. She was only 4 weeks old and the lady said they found the kitty in a drainage ditch. Poor kitty, how can people do that? At least she was found and they are taking care of her. I was very careful with her and did not pounce on her like I try to do with my cat Gizmo. On the way home, we stopped by a place called CVS because mom had to pick something up. We pulled up to some window where people came over and talked to mom. Well, they just loved me and gave me all kinds of treats:) When we got home, mom played frisbee with me and Chloe for a while. The rest of the night we just chilled and watched TV. I was pretty beat from the vet and playing so I slept most of the time and actually went to bed early. Mom told me I was a very good girl at the vet and she's proud at how good I am when I'm in public. I try, I really do:)
