Where's dad?

Mom came home last night and dad wasn't with her. Hmmmm... mom said we have to go to bed because mom has to get up early to go and get dad from work. Well, mom didn't get much sleep. All of 4 hours and it was time to get up. Mom got up and I didn't want to to be alone so I followed her out to the truck and jumped in. We took off and it was rainy/foggy. I was yawning and sleeping the whole way.

We drive all the way down this driveway and mom parked in front of this building. She was telling me who was a turd and who was nice. She even said I could pee on certain persons tires! Heh heh heh! Finally dad showed up and we were on our way home.

Got home and Darcy was like, hey?! Where did you guys go?! She was barking, hopping and spinning in the air! She had the real goofies toward mom! Mom was laughing and chasing her for a bit. I went potty and mom said lets go in. Mom gave Darcy her pills and said, that's it bed time!

I was happy to hear that because I was still sleepy! So we crawled into bed for a couple of hours of sleep. It was awesome! Now I feel better! Mom took us for our walk, then we played. Mom said it was to muggy in the house and turned on the A/C. That made me pretty happy!

Dad woke up just as mom was leaving and said hello and goodnight! So now I'm snuggling with dad in the a/c!

 

Whew, I'm Pooped!

Dad was on his HD and heading over to Grandma's and Grandpa's. He wasn't gone 2 minutes and mom called in sick at work... :) Yippee!! Mom said alright guys, lets go. We got in the SUV and headed out! We didn't even go for our walk down the road. Well we ended up at the Reservoir and took a long, long walk there! It was awesome!! Then mom said, lunch time and went to BK. She got me and Darcy chicken nuggets. SCORE!! We got home and mom said, break time. That meant me and Darcy went outside to sun ourselves and mom cleaned the kitchen. Well it got around 4pm and mom said, let's go!! So we loaded up in the SUV (again) and headed in a new direction! Up this really windy road. We went for a good bit and then turned down a dirt road. My nose was in overdrive!! The road ended at the humongous lake! There was a guy and his son getting ready to go fishing. The fishing dock is closed because the lake is so low. That was good for us because me and Darcy got to walk on it and sniff all over. All of us, including mom, walked in the lake. It was mucky! Mom asked the guy and the boy which way was west. She was scouting places for photos. The guy pulled out a compass and said this way is west. Well, he was wrong! Even with a compass!! Mom got a map of the place and found out which way is west. There is a couple of things mom want to take pictures of me on. We went home after we swam for a bit. All of us were pooped out! So it was eat dinner and go to bed!

The next day we woke up and mom took us to the Reservoir again!! Talk about good luck!! The weather has been pretty awesome and mom said no more sitting around! On our walk there was a guy and a little girl. The girl was on a tiny bicycle. They had 2 dogs. A medium dog and a fat boxer dog. He was as wide as he was long! He growled and barked at me and Darcy, we just walked away from him - weirdos!! Once again we went swimming. It was great! On the way home mom stopped at Tractor Supply. It wasn't hot out so mom left me and Darcy in the SUV with the windows down. We got to people watch. Well mom came out with a cart of stuff. She loaded the stuff in the car and then put on my collar! She threw a cookie in Darcy's crate and took me and the cart into the store! Cool!! It's my first time shopping! :):) Well I sniffed over a bunch of isles pretty good. Mom was a bit concerned about Darcy being alone so I didn't get to sniff the entire store. Then the guy behind the cash register kneeled down (good move!!) and gave me a cookie! He gave me lots of rubbin and I was in heaven! I like this shopping stuff!!

We went home, mom unloaded the SUV and said "break time". Darcy and I went out to our beds on the deck to sun and mom finished laundry, cut the grass in the dog yard and dishes. Then, sure enough, a couple of hours later mom said, let's go! Boy are we putting on the miles! And we headed back to Elk State Park. On the way we got stopped by some construction guy directing traffic. He was pretty funny, he told mom that I was a real nice dog! Mom thanked him and I gave him a lick and wag for the compliment! We got to the lake and sure enough mom was right. She knew which way west was (it was the opposite from what the guy told her!). Turns out mom will be able to take the pictures she wants of me. Now she's just got to wait the 3 weeks until her and dad have the day off and the time to get me there for the pictures!

Once we got home mom grabbed a bunch of stuff and said come on guys outside. So out we went. Mom put this big cloth thing on the patio downstairs. She then put these painting canvases down and put some fresh paint on top. Then she put Darcy's collar on a walked her across the paintings a bunch of times. It was icky! Mom had a pocketful of treats for me and I did pretty good! After the paintings were done mom put glitter on them to make them shine! :):) You can see our work on Darcy's page.

Mom decided that Saturday was going to be chill day. She had a bunch of things to finish around the house. The computer crashed and froze so she unplugged it and walked away from it. Mom said, that's it and made herself a "cocktail". She grabbed another big canvas painting and out we headed again! Mom painted the background bright yellow. Then she drizzled and dripped different colors on top of the yellow base. Then she walked me and Darcy over the painting. It was fun!! Mom had my ball this time and ya'll know I'll do anything for my ball!! She had Darcy on her collar and poor Darcy was so scared, she looked at mom with her tail tucked up and was like, "mom I don't like this!!!" Mom was real patient and got some awesome paw prints from Darcy and me! You can see the finished yellow painting on my page! :)

This morning mom was up at 4 am! What??? Then she started to sneeze and sneeze, and sneeze! Oh boy! Well she was up until 6:30 sneezin and snifflin. Well mom finally fell back asleep for a couple of hours. She got up and took me out to potty. She didn't look to happy yet, so I climbed on the sofa and waited for her to snuggle with me. Mom got the hint and curled up huggin me just the way I love it! When mom finally got moving I did a huge stretch and yawn. She fed us and took us for a walk.

 

Cheer Up Mom!

Mom's off today. We didn't go for a walk. We did play but that was it. Mom said she's just blah... I didn't want her to go to work tonight, but she did. She said she didn't want to waste a blah feeling on the inmates. I guess that's funny!! :):)

 

Diary Pick of the Day!

Thanks HQ! It's a quiet day today. Mom took us for a walk, fed us and then her and dad left. Mom went to the dr's today. Her ear has been bothering her and she thought she may have punctured it at the tractor pulls. Turns out no holes (good news), that this is leftover from that horrible cold she had... so in a few days she should be feeling better. Her and dad came back from the dr's and took us out to the playground to play. You know I loved that! Me and Darcy acted like total fools running around! Then came nappie time. :):) The weather is a bit warmer today, but moms got our ceiling fans on so we're good! Have a great day everyone! :):)

 

Away we go again...

Mom got up and said come on guys we're outta here. She had a couple of boxes for Aunt Jackie loaded in the SUV. So away we went, again! :) Whoop whooop! We headed to town, mom stopped at the post office and went in to mail the boxes. I figure I'm a magnet. All of a sudden 5 other vehicles showed up at the post office. Most said hi to me! I wagged and smooched the air at them! :):) Then mom came out gave me a big hug, some kisses and said we're outta here. Drove around the lake and she parked by the baseball fields. YES!! Me and Darcy got out and Darcy was shaking, but sniffing the ground. We walked around the whole lake today. Darcy did awesome! I kept showing her where to sniff, and she did! We got to jump in the lake a few times. Mom says I'm nuts because I keep barking at sticks and stones sticking out of the water. Well, they're monsters mom!!! Then I had my fur up and started to growl. Mom said, what is it? And I growled and walked towards what I was staring at. Mom didn't see any bear or critters so she was perplexed! So she said what is it Grunt, and I growled, real low. Hmmmm, follow me mom. I took her to where I was focused on. Ready for this? 2, yes 2 iron benches and a stone memorial. Yes, I growled and crept up to them with extreme caution. They are evil!! Mom sat on one and tapped the stone. She said I see tons of them at the cemetary - yea but they're different! Well I was pretty proud of myself for alerting mom to the dangerous benches! Anyhoo, we finished our walk and mom drove us home. We got home and there was a strange car in the driveway. I ran in the house and there was my favorite! Dad's friend Russ! Yippeee!! Uncle Russ!!!! I ran to him and jumped up and gave him a hug! Then I got the zoomies! Russ was like, what's going on? He's never seen me so jumpy and crazy. Mom said, don't worry give him a minute. Sure enough I ran and got my toy, chewed it a bit, then went on the deck to crash on my bed! Whew! All this excitement! :):)

 

Ups and Downs...

Mom and dad went to the fair the other day. Mom told me they would be gone most of the day. Well they left at 11am and didn't get home until midnight!!!! While at the fair they decided to see the tractor pulls. Geez! They must've been good for them to come home so late!! Well we went to bed. I woke mom up in the morning by singing in her ear! Seriously! I was laying on her, she was sleeping on her stomach and I put my head by her ear and went rrrrooooorrrrrooooaaaaoooooooaaaa! Mom said, "are you kidding Grunt" so I did it again! Time to wake up mom!! She promised me and Darcy that we wouldn't be alone today! Let's get going! So she got up and took us for our walk. Fed us and then said lets go! We loaded up in the SUV and headed out to the reservoir. We took our walk around the lake. I decided that any rock or stick sticking out of the water was a monster and gave my best big boy bark! It echoed and was sooo loud!! :):) After we got done at the lake mom went to WalMart. She had her 2nd set of keys so we got to stay in the A/C with the radio on while she shopped. Well, an HOUR later! Geez! She showed up! Gave me hugs and kisses and took us home. I was pretty pooped out. My nappie time is 1:30 and it was 3 pm by the time we got home! Mom had some laundry and ironing to do. Great! Time for me to get a nap in!! But first we had to play with the chuck-it ball mom said to make sure I was really pooped out! :):) What a day! :)

 

MY Gotcha day!

2 years ago mom and dad went to Joyful Rescue. They decided that it was time to bring another dog in the house. Mom was interested in 2 other dogs, dad was interested in me. Mom was sure she didn't want another pitbull after Turner. He was the love of her life and had gotten cancer. Leaving mom alone and heartbroken. :( Well I put the spell on Dad when I saw him at the Petfest! Mom and dad were waiting in the sunroom when they brought in one of the pups mom was interested in. He pretty much ignored mom. When I came in the room I climbed up the foot stool and into Dads lap. Dad said, forget the others we'll take this one! That was me!! :):):) Best day of my life! I made mom see that there is still life in this world and that she needed to get moving. Turner sent me to help mom along and I've done an awesome job so far! Mom adores me and couldn't imagine any other dog in her life! I've grown to be 70 pounds of love! Mom got in touch with one of my brothers and turns out 2 of my other brothers were returned to the rescue and re-adopted out. So mom got to see what my siblings look like. Turns out I was the runt (but the cutest). My brothers are all 80 pounds and have the big block heads. Not I - I'm perfect! Mom says so! :):) So 2 years ago today mom and dad came to get me, but really I got them! :):)

On top of our mountain! Mom went out front last night! It was in the 50's and clear. Mom sat in her chair and was staring at the sky. She had her camera on a tripod and was taking these long pictures. You heard click, pause, pause (forever) then click! Dad came out a couple of times. He just doesn't get it! Yet he claims to be the outdoorsman! Hmpf!! Anyhoo! I had a blast! I chased Darcy, she chased me! Then I sniffed and sniffed in mom's flowerbeds! Mom said I was obsessing! Whatever! It was fun!! We didn't get to bed until real late. One good thing about mom working the evenings we slept until 10! :):) Dad's friend Russ came over to visit me! He said since he was there that him and dad were going to check the game cameras. I got my rubs in then they went into the woods. THEN, mom gave me and Darcy a bath! She used a bunch of peanutbutter on Darcy to break down her tree sap spots! :):) I wanted to lick it off of her but mom wouldn't let me! :)

 

Sleepy

We slept late today! We were all comfy so why bother to move right? Mom dremeled my nails yesterday. She used a new band - it was way too rough. She threw it out and will use a finer one next time. I still got plenty of treats because I'm so awesome when she does my nails. :) Today is mom's Friday, that's good. She said something about maybe this weekend we'll got to the lake for swimming.... sounds great to me! :)

 

Whew, I'm exhausted

We've had sooo much company at the house lately. Uncle Mark and Aunt Deb were in for a week, they were fun! Then grandma showed up for 2 weeks, love her! She talked to me and Darcy, gave us treats and shared her pretzels with us all the time. Then mom and dad's friends from FL showed up for a few days. Man, it's been busy at our house! Yesterday grandpa showed up. He was taking grandma home the same day! We thought he was going to spend the night. No complaints here. He doesn't like me much. But I did bring him the ball when he asked me to! :) THEN, mom took me to Joyful Rescues. They had their annual Petfest/Pet Reunion. I wore my new collar and was the best boy there! I met about 20 dogs and said hello. Mom was shocked at how awesome I am! Everyone complimented me on my collar BEFORE they asked what breed I am. Mom was in heaven! She wanted the collar to have people look at the collar so I can smooze them before they find out I'm a pitbull. :):) Mom's so smart! Well, we got home from Petfest and I was exhausted! I've been busy being a good host to our visitors! We got home around 4pm. I didn't eat my dinner - too tired. Went to bed and woke up at 8 am today!! That's how tired I was! Now I'm good to go!

Mom was outside with me and dad came out on the deck with the phone. He tossed it down to mom. It was Joyful Rescues. Turns out mom won one of the raffles! A 2 night stay in Ellicottville, NY! It's a ski-resort town! Mom was giggling and jumping!

THEN! Mom got a call from Aunt Jackie. Mr. Bootes did his variable surface track today. He never faltered! The trainer and Aunt Jackie were stunned and shocked! Now the trainer has told Aunt Jackie that after January 1st AKC will be testing AKC Companion Partner dogs!! Mom is so happy for Aunt Jackie and Mr. Bootes!
