Rainy/Snowy Monday

Hi Everyone!

It's raining outside now, but Mom said it's going to snow later on today. That's sad for me since we've had temps in the upper 50s for the past 2 days. I got to go on nice long walks with my dad. We missed Mom, but her foot hasn't healed well enough for her to walk that far or fast enough to keep up with us! BOL

Mom told me this morning that this is her last week off before she has to go back to work. Dad is working now too, so that means I'm going to be alone during the day. I'm not afraid of being alone, but just don't like it. I bet all my dog friends understand that! And I'm just not used to being alone every day. It will be hard for me!

Hoping everyone has a Pawsome day!!

Well, it's the end of another week (or so my mom and dad say!)

My dad started a new job this week and I really don't like it! I don't like the fact that he's leaving me, even though my mom is still home with her bad foot!

It's been so cold out lately that my walks have really been shortened! Aunt Marianne and Uncle Gary have been coming over to walk me up the street when Dad is gone because Mom can't walk outside yet. Uncle Gary and I saw 3 deer up on the hill yesterday while we were out. He was amazed that I didn't bark at them. Mom told him later that those 3 deer are my friends and I never bark at them anymore!

I hope everyone is warm and safe this weekend!

Hi Everyone!

It's been over a year since my mom wrote anything in my diary. So much has changed for me with more changes to come.

I now live in Morgantown, WV! I love the mountains, trails and dog parks! The people here are so nice and they are always asking if they can stop and pet me!

Mom goes to work now every day, so I really miss her while she's gone. But, my dad stays home with me. They told me last night that dad got a new job and will not be with me during the day either. Now, I'll have to be alone during the day for the first time in my life. I think I'll be ok, but will really miss my mom and dad. Maybe Aunt Marianne will come over to visit me!

It's snowing outside today, so Dad and I won't be going on any long walks. My mom's foot is still in a boot from her surgery, so she's not allowed to walk me yet.

I hope everyone is doing ok! My mom and I have been so sad about some of our friends leaving us to make the trip over the Rainbow Bridge. We hope they had a very easy and safe trip!

Love to all of you!

Good Morning Fur Friends!

As my subject said, it's SUNNY here today. A big difference from yesterday when it was cloudy, very windy, rainy and just down right cold! I did get a surprise after dinner last night, when the sun came out and Mom and Dad let me play in the dog park for awhile. It was a little bit muddy, but they said I needed the time out to run and play! I have the BEST humans ever!

I was really tired when we got back in, so I got my treat (for being good), a drink of water, and ice cube, then I took a long nap! Good thing, because the coyotes and a loud bird kept me up most of the night! I felt the need to bark at them and Mom felt the need to tell me to stop! (TEE HEE)

I'm wishing ALL my friends a wonderful long Memorial Day weekend with their friends and humans!

Love you all!!

Happy Saturday!!

It's not raining here today and that, in itself, is something to wag your tail about!!

My day started out with sleeping in until 8! WHOO HOOO....I made Mom and Dad happy since that meant that they could sleep in too! Mom took me out for a quick walk and I took care of all my "business"!! After we came back in, Mom was searching in the pantry for something and one of the shelves broke, bringing cans and bottles down with a BANG! That really scared me! Then, one of the jars of Verde sauce broke, so Dad and I were regulated to the bedroom while Mom cleaned up everything. Mom and Dad left me for awhile to go run errands, but fed me lunch when they got home and Mom took me to the Dog Park YIPPEE!!

Now, I think I'll rest a bit. I wasn't feeling very well yesterday, but Mom couldn't tell because I was not behaving very well. After I threw up at bedtime, I felt much better!

Hope all my fur friends out there have a great Saturday with their family!!

Hi Everyone!

It seems like old man winter just refuses to let go as Mom had to wear her winter coat and gloves today on our walks. I really didn't mind the temps, but hated getting wet!

I don't know what is up with my behavior, but I've been sent to my room 3 times today! Geesh! I think it is all about nipping Mom when I'm too impatient to wait for her to do something for me. She told me I've got to figure out a different way to show her what I want and even showed me a few ways. I like the nipping better, but hate it when Mom gets mad at me. Maybe next time, I'll pay more attention to her.

It's almost time to settle down for the night. The sun has gone down and I feel a nap coming on!

Hope all my fur friends have a wonderful night!

Hi Everyone!

This is my first diary entry since getting back from our week in West Virginia! Boy did we have fun! Dad took me every day to a place called Dorsey's Knob. I can climb rocks there and hike around! Both Mom and Dad took me to 2 different dog parks which I'd never seen before! They are so different from the one here. First of all, they are NOT flat! Then, there are trees and logs to play on all over the place. They even have a water fountain for just the dogs!! I loved both of them! I do

Usually I was so tired out at night that I didn't even mind when Mom and Dad left me to go out for dinner with family and friends! I just snoozed until they got home!

The 13 hour drive was even better both going and coming home. Whoever wasn't driving would sit in the back seat so I could sit up front if I wanted to. Sometimes I did, and sometimes I didn't, but it was nice to have the choice! The only bad part coming home was going through the city of Chicago. I hate that stop and go traffic and all those cars so close by! But, we all stopped a little bit before we got home for one last break to stretch our legs and go potty! Mom and Dad are the BEST!

We were all so tired by the time we got home on Sunday (at 2:30). They woke me up at 3:30 AM to leave and it was still dark!!! I don't like that, either, but it got light a couple of hours later! I spent most of the rest of the day on Sunday sleeping. Even yesterday, I was kind of lazy, but still found the energy to go to the dog park and see some friends.

Mom has had me over to the dog park a couple of times today and now I am getting ready to go rest on the deck with the nice, warm breeze blowing through my fur! is good!!! :)

Hope all of you are having a great day!!

Hi Everyone!

Well, it's almost here! This is the day before we leave for a week long vacation! We are going to West Virginia to visit all of my mom's family. I've been there 3 other times and remember all the fun we had then! Dad and Mom took me rock climbing and hiking! There are lots of dogs on the street where my aunt lives! Mom told me last night that they found a new dog park in Morgantown that they are going to take me to check out! The only part of the trip I don't like is the long drive. I travel well in the car, but the trip takes close to 13 hours. It's a long day for all of us!

I probably won't be making another diary entry until we get back, so to all of my friends, have a wonderful week!


It's Finally Sunny....Saturday 4/20/13

Hi Everyone!

It's mid afternoon on a Saturday. Mom has been busy all day cleaning and doing laundry. She has things out ready to pack tomorrow for our trip to West Virginia on Monday! My tail wags every time I see her get something else out! I'm so excited to see my family and get out in some nice weather!

We all watched the horrible events unfold yesterday and last night of the capture of the Boston Marathon Bomber. We are all so tail wagging happy that they caught that boy. He's so mean! We nightly offer up POP for all the victims and their families. We also think about the horrible explosion in West, Texas. Many many people were killed and hurt there, too! POP for Texas!!

I think I'm going to out on the deck for awhile. I've got to be outside while the weather is still nice!!

Hi Everyone!

As my subject shows, this is the 3rd day in a row of deadly thunderstorms, flooding and never ending rain! Just like last winter, when I couldn't find a place to do my business because of the deep snow drifts, now I can't either because of the flooding! My tail is drooping at the thought of another day in the house. On the bright side, I was just groomed and bathed yesterday, so if I don't go out much, I won't get all dirty! :)

3 days left before we leave on our vacation! Now, that's something to look forward to! Mom looked up the weather and it looks like we'll have some nice days to do some hiking and mountain climbing!!

I hope all of my fur friends out there are having a great morning and will continue to have a great day! I think I'm going out on the deck to check on my squirrel and bird friends. At least I can do that without getting too wet!!
