and took a bunch of new pictures of ME in all my Imperial Beauty!! Mommy changed some of the pictures, but she kept her favorites: my baby picture, and my gorgous profile!! Almost all the new snow has melted--we had about a foot of it last weekend, but Mommy says it will be back in a few months. I sure hope so! I love that cool stuff!
As you can see in my new pictures, I had a good time smiling for the camera, and eating cookies outside today, but I finally had to come in and take a nap in my four-poster lace canopied bed. (So what if Basil says it's just a slab of foam under the dining room table? It's my THRONE!) AHHHHHHHHHHHHH, yes, Pups. It's good to be Skye.....Woofs and Wags and Good Stinks to Sniff to ALL--till next time!

...and it's almost time for the next one! YIPPEE!
Greetings, Dogster Pack! Woofs to you all. I had the most amazing weekend! First, my big sister came to stay on Friday, which I always LOOOVVVEEE because she gives me LOTS of attention and cookies. Then, on Saturday, Mommy told me that my diary had been chosen as "Diary of the Day" at Dogster! Thanks, Dogster! And on Sunday, my whole family was here for dinner--all at once--imagine that! Mommy made some real yummy food too. Is asparagus addicting? I sure do love it! Oh, and jelly beans. They are so much fun to catch!
Mommy says that I am a rare bird--a Muddy Bellied Treat Sucker. Silly Mommy! Just because the ditches along the road on our walks are filled with the most wonderful perfect mud!! And just because I simply can't resist splashing in them! I feel a bath in my future. **Sigh**
My cousin Basil has been watching the ducks where he lives. I just found out today that there are GOOSES living on our neighbors' pond!!! Basil thinks the ducks might be leaving treats for him, but I bet the gooses will leave me even bigger treats!! I just have to be careful of the snapping turtles who live around the pond, I think meeting one of those guys would pretty much ruin my day!
Time for my nap. Have to keep on schedule, you know. Woofs and Wags to everyone, and always remember, it's good to be SKYE ;)

Greetings from the Imperial Domain of Skye!
Remember how Mommy tricked me into taking a bath last week? Well, I tricked her right back. All the snow melted and then it rained, and the ditches along the road where we take our walks have just enough water in them to satisfy my Labrador roots. So being clean and fresh didn't last very long. So there, Mommy!! I love when we get really big rainstorms in the summer because the backyard gets delightfully FULL of water. It's like I have my own private lake! Skye Heaven, for sure.
That pesky Basil T. Beagle, (my cousin) is all braggy in his diary this week about how he's going to soon have his own room when my big sister moves to a new apartment in a few weeks. HAH, Beagle! I've had my own room if I wanted it since before you were even born! It's just that I love my Mommy and Daddy so much that I would much rather sleep on my own bed in their room.
Mommy and I have been taking a different route on our daily walks for the past week, and it's wonderful!! Many cats and rabbits visit the roadside along this route, and they are always leaving me yummy treats to sneak before mommy sees what I have. Also, a new doggie has moved in to the neighborhood. I'm still shy around other dogs, but I'd like to meet this doggie. She seems nice.
That's about all the news for this week, Pups. Hope you're all having doggone good fun. I am, 'cause it's good to be Skye..........

First of all, I want to say "HI" to all my Pup Pals! Hope you're all having amazing naps and good stinks to sniff!!
My Mommy is FINALLY getting around to writing my diary, I have such an exciting life--how could she resist? I've "almost" forgiven her for giving me a bath the other day. She knows I don't really mind the bath, I just like to really test her patience in getting me to go upstairs to the tub. (Note to all you small puppees-- size DOES matter when it comes to bath time.) I weigh 97 lbs, and there is NO WAY anyone is gonna get me upstairs to the bathroom unless I wanna go. So if you hate baths, next time around come back as a big doggie. My humans give me really good treats on bath day, and the longer I resist, the better the treats get until they finally pull out the really stinky lunchmeat that I adore! She tricked me good this time, tho'. I had forgotten all about the bath when she snuck one of my toys upstairs and started squeaking it. I just HAD to go investigate who the heck was playin' with my stuff......oh well, I'm clean now for a little while!
If you look at the picture of me lying under a chair on my page, that is exactly how I look at this moment. Any time Mom's using the computer, that's where I'll be. She says she's gonna take some new pictures of me soon. Yeah, maybe--if I feel like it! Otherwise, I'll just keep turned away from her. In case you haven't guessed, I am the Imperial Queen of the House.
Looks like another good weekend shaping up around here. My big sister will be here, and she'll leave her little brat, Basil T. Beagle, with his other grandparents, so I can have Sis all to myself. She and Mommy will probably be shopping and stuff, but they always come back to play with me, and sometimes they even bring me new treats! My big brother will be off work too. I just adore him! Since it's finally not snowing, maybe he'll even take me running with him! Right now, the house is smelling verrrrrrrrrrrrry gooooooooood. Mommy says it's from the corned beef she's cooking for dinner today. PLEEZ PLEEZ PLEEZ gimme some, Mommy!!
It's Good to be SKYE........................
