Mom took us swimming today, well actually we just kinda walked around the creek. Darcy was more into the water than me today. But it still felt good. On the way back there were loads of chipmonks in the cemetery. We got just past the house that has the mini horses, there is some woods infront of their fence and I stopped, squatted and pooped. In the MIDDLE of the road! And it wasn't just any kind of poop, the monster pile kind of poop! :) Mom said I was a good boy because I went poop on the lead, but smiled at my drop location! Mom walked us back to the house and put me and Darcy in the playground. Then she got in the truck drove down and picked up my speed bump in the middle of the road. When she drove back me and Darcy were running with all we had in the playground to chase mom back up the driveway. Mom gave me a bath, said the creek water is yucky and now I smell like almonds! :) Darcy got a bath also and she smells like a coconut!

 

And yet another friend leaves... :(

M&K we're so sad to see you go. All I can say is whoever said mean things remember this - if you have nothing nice to say, say nothing at all! There once was a time when Dogster was full of fun and happy people... what went wrong??????

Well it's official! I complete my probation - one year down! HAHAHA! On a serious note, yesterday, the 13th was my official Gotcha date! Mom took me to the vets office to have my hips x-rayed. I've been popping like crazy. The good news is I'm fine! They couldn't manipulate me to get anything to pop! The bad news is (not really) dad told mom to take a chill pill. That I'm still a growing pup (I'm 69.2 pounds now!) and that I'm probably still growing into my body! Duh!! Mom said, it's been a long, long, long time since she's had a puppy. And besides I'm so big and calm that she forgets I'm a pup! Anyhoo, I'm fine! That's the bottom line! Mom and dad went to the fair while I slept for a bit. When they got home I couldn't settle down so mom sat it the recliner and held me for about 2 hours while I slept. Dad just rolled his eyes at mom the entire time! :) Then mom took me outside for potty and off to bed we went. I curled up on my pillow by the bed and didn't wake up until 7:30am! Slept all night. I'm still pretty tired, and sore. So mom said we're taking it easy today! The fog is here and mom is obviously taking her time getting started today! That's alright, I'm sleepy.

 

Busy, busy, busy!!

Well let's see mom and dad loaded me up on Saturday morning and took me to Joyful Rescues Petfest 2012. As mom was pulling into her spot a lady said, there's one of my babies! Turns out it was Joni - my foster mom! I was soooooo happy to see her!! I leaned on her and was smiling my big smile! Then we walked around and a whole bunch of volunteers kept asking who I was... when mom said I was Army and now I'm Grunt I got loads and loads of hugs and kisses!! :):) A lady there, Erika, took pictures of me, me, mom, dad and Joni.. :) Mom's trying to get copies to post on Dogster! Then we took a tour to the pond. What mom and dad didn't know is that I LOVE the pond! I kept pulling mom on the lead. She stopped and let me settle down, and I took off again for pulling her on the lead. Mom was totally confused. But once we got to the pond, mom walked to the side and sploooshh!!! I jumped in! Mom and dad were shocked - they didn't know that I could swim, let along like the water. I didn't bother with the kiddie pool at home so mom gave it to Bootes. I swam for a good 20 minutes! :0 Then went back to the part, wet, cooled off and smiling like a fiend! :} Well dad was pretty tired, he went to the event with only 2 hours of sleep. So mom loaded me up and headed for the house. I was so exhausted I crawled into the crate and crashed! It was such a great day!!

On a sad note, I found out that one of my brothers was returned to the rescue. Turns out his mom and dad are divorcing and brought him back. Also learned that the rescue adopted 2 of my brothers together (not a common practice in any rescue) and they are fighting like crazy. I feel sad for my brothers but glad that I've got the best home of all! Also mom talked to the vet at Petfest. She's from my vet's office and very nice. Mom told her about my hips popping. She said to make an appointment and get me in for an X-ray. I'm going in on Monday. We'll see....

Then the next day mom and dad took us for a walk. Dad said there is a swimming hole just past the cemetery and through the woods. Well mom has seen the path and strange vehicles, but had no idea what was down there. Sure enough we walked down the path, Darcy was pretty brave I might add, and waaalaaa there was the creek with a swimming hole! It was soo cool! I jumped right in!! Darcy stayed on the bank, but I took a couple of laps! Mom was so shocked! She never knew I could swim! We got back to the house and we were all pooped from the busy weekend. I declared house nap time and climbed on moms lap. I slept 2 hours on her lap, she couldn't believe I was snoring! Got awake and went out to the playground. Mom threw my chuck-it ball and I picked it up and layed right down - still sleepy.

Yesterday mom gave me a bath after our walk. I don't mind baths, I get a wonderful massage! Me and Darcy chilled out while mom and dad were working in the basement. Mom put up the monster crate (it's huge!)and painted some walls. Dad was putting tile down in the kitchenette area. Mom said she was making the walls look like leather and that this was just the base color that next time she will glaze the walls. Should be interesting.

This morning we walked the other direction, I smelled something and my fur went up on my back. There was definately something in the woods. Mom could see that I was getting excited and we changed directions and headed for the mini-horses. Well, today is trash day, and critters come around. We finished our walk and I smelled something again. I ran out the doggie door and was barking my big boy bark. Man is it loud! Mom couldn't see anything but told me I was a good boy! I smelled something again later, before mom went to work. Maybe the bear is back, who knows...

 

It's Mom's Friday wooohoooo :)

So mom took us for a walk today. The weather is wacky here, one minute we're walking along and there is a nice breeze, next thing it's raining on us! What? Well we got wet by the time we made it back to the house. Mom gave us a good rub down with our towels to dry off. Then I got the zoomies! Some of mom and dad's friends still have no power from the storm 2 days ago. They offered them a place to stay (we've got an apartment in the basement), shower or just come and watch tv. So I watched mom clean the apt for anyone who may show up tonight. I was outside today and got the zoomies really bad. I came flying in the house and mom was reading the newspaper. I jumped on her lap and she shook the paper and wacked me - playing of course! Well let me tell you it was like hitting the supercharge button on zoomies! I dropped to the floor and did 4 circles real fast then took of like a shot! Zooomiiieessssss!! By the time mom and dad left for work I was snoozin on Darcy's bed....

Oh yea, I had an accident last night. I peed on the rug! What? Turns out mom forgot to turn on the light in our yard. It's supposed to come on when we walk outside. Well it stormed and then got dark and I was afraid. I held it as long as I could. When mom and dad came home I had my head real low. Dad cleaned up my mess and never said a mean word to me (love him!). Mom took me outside but I didn't have to go anymore. I feel so ashamed that I peed. Mom said it was her fault because she forgot to turn the light on. So today dad put up the new light, our fingers (and paws) are crossed that all will be well...

 

Whew, what a storm!

Sure was storming yesterday! Lots of wind and rain. Mom and dad came home and we were thrilled! I was limping and mom was concerned. She checked out my paw and didn't see anything sticking in it. :( Then this morning I was limping even more. Mom checked me again. Seems that my outer toe is tender to the touch. So mom will keep an eye on it, if it get's worse I'll go see Dr. Mount.

 

Mom, miss you...

Mom got a phone call from grandma on Tuesday. Next thing I know mom is packed and leaving in a hurry. Turns out grandma had a medical emergency, but is fine now. Mom was gone for the night. Dad was off from work and took good care of me and Darcy. We played for a long time and then I slept with dad.

Mom came home last night and I literally jumped up to kiss her! I missed her so much!

Now today, Darcy is acting weird and I'm attached to mom's hip! Mom and dad went to work and now this huge storm came in. Wish mom and dad were here, they're at work :( They'll be home soon enough and everything will be fine!

 

Made it home :):)

Mom came and got us from the kennel this morning. It's good to be home. Only thing is one of our dog friends across the hall got kennel cough. I just got my vaccine in June so mom is hopeful that me and Darcy will be alright. Time will tell.

Mom got me a new elk antler, it's split in half and yummy!! I love coming home after the kennel, I always get something new! :):)

Mom checked in this morning and Wooohooo I'm Diary Pick of the Day! Too bad I'm not here to celebrate! I'm at the kennel for my week of playtime! Mom was out of town so dad took me and Darcy to the kennel. Dad said we drug him full force into the kennel. He couldn't believe it! So we're off having a good time. Today is much cooler than it has been which is great! We're having a great time! Mom's picking us up tomorrow morning.

Thanks for the Diary Pick of the Day!:):)

 

We went for a walk today....

And there was no bear! Yippeee!! I saw the mini-horses, the babies were kicking up their heels! Saw one for the barn cats, got overly focused and mom walked in front of me and got me moving again. We went to the playground but me and Darcy just didn't feel like being out there too long. So mom took us into the house. Mom got up at 6 am (we went to bed at 1am) and I was still tired. So mom did some laundry and then vacuumed the house. After we ate mom got tired and snuggled with me and took a nap. Now she's at work and I'm snoozing with dad.
