Hi To all My Friends,

I'm writing a bit later then I usually do but I've been busy today going for long walks since the weather was a little warmer.

Tonight, during the football game, my mom and dad made some of that stuff that makes popping noises. They wouldn't give me any, but it sure smelled good!

I could tell my mom was not feeling herself tonight, but I didn't understand why. I just stayed close by her and snuggled. That always seems to help!

Everyone have a great night!

Your Friend,

Hi Everyone!

I've been laying around a lot today, soaking up the sun that was coming through the window. I was so excited to get outside because of the sun, but was shocked to find out how cold it really was! Plus, all that white stuff that came last night got really slippery during the night and we had to be very carful walking today. My mom fell one time, but I ran back to her and licked her face, hoping she was ok. She got up fast and we walked on, but very slowly!

Now, I'm getting ready to take a nap on my dad's lap! It's cozy there!

My tummy isn't feeling very good today, but I've been able to eat. Hope it's better tomorrow!

Everyone have a growling good day!!


Another Surprise!

Good Morning!

A yawn and a huge stretch for this chilly January 5th morning! Mom got on her square thing that she holds on her lap (when I'm not tyring to be there) and called me over. She said my diary was chosen as a Daily Diary Pic! She was grinning and laughing so of course I had to wag my tail like mad! Like I said before, when Mom and Dad are happy, I'm happy! Dad doesn't know yet cause Mom is letting him sleep in and took care of me early.

It was still dark out this morning, but I felt that ole urge, so I started licking Mom's ear (that always does the trick). She got up, dressed, budled up and took me out! WOWEEE did I ever feel better when we got back in. Mom even gave me a treat for being a good boy outside. Back to bed we went (since it was so early) and cuddled together. I slept for a little bit, but then woke up and really wanted to play. Once again, Mom got up and played with me. Dad is still in bed, so I'm laying on his side of this cushy thing they sit on. There is food in my bowl and fresh water, but I think I'll save them for after my first big walk of the morning!

Not sure what I'll do today. I got a new chew bone yesterday and I hid part of it last night....(love hiding the parts)! I think I'll go get it later. For now, I just heard a strange noise outside. I don't think Mom heard it cause she didn't even look up from her square lap thing. I jumped up and started growling with the intent of a good, scarey bark coming. Mom squeezed that high sounding thing at me and reminded me "No Bark". I guess it's still early.

Oh....i got a gift today from 2 of my friends! Tail is wagging from one side of my butt to the other!! :)

Off to snuggle with Dad!!!

Wishing all my friends a tail wagging day like mine has already started out to be!!

Good Morning Friends!

What a strange start to my day! My mom got confused when I jumped off the bed last night (or early this morning as she kept reminding me, and got up to take me out. I didn't want or need to go out.....just stretching my legs, scratching an itch and finding another place to sleep. Lucky ME....Mom couldn't get back to sleep, so she stayed up and I got her side, pillow and to cuddle with Dad! She said we are going to have a long talk about that today. Don't quite know what that means, but I don't think it sounds good!

Dad went back to work today and that meant we all had to wake up for real at 5. Mom took me out, then gave me my favorite treat for being a good boy. I also had my breakfast. Mom seemed to have lots of energy as she started cleaning very early. I followed her around helping her as much as I could. She always thanks me for keeping her company!

Oh, and I have to tell you that I got a real treat yesterday afternoon. Mom took me for a walk, but decided to let me go into the dog park since my good friend, Barron was in there. BOY....did we run and play! I rolled on the ground many, many times! And guess what?? When it was time to go home, I was very dirty. Mom brought me into the house and took me into the bathroom to get a bath! The warm water felt good and I got all the nasty dirt off of me in no time. After dinner, I was so tired that I napped while Mom and Dad watched something on the big box.

So, today I hope that I get to go again to the dog park, but the weather is very cold. I've been out twice now, and am getting ready to amble into the bedroom for an early morning nap!

Have a Pawtastick Day!!



The Day After New Year.....2013

Hi Everyone!

It's a cold and kind of windy day up here near Chicago. I've been out for a walk 3 times today and I really walk fast in this type of weather! But, the sun is out and no snow or rain and I love that!

I had kind of a bad night. I had to wake Mom up really early to go outside. I was all ready to hop back into bed and go back to sleep, but the downstairs neighbor had different ideas for me. The music was very loud and so were the voices. I started to bark loudly, but Mom told me not to. I finally fell asleep, but my mom didn't. I think there is another cuddly nap with Mom in my future for this afternoon!

Mom just called me telling me it's almost lunch time!

Everyone have a Pawriffic Day!!!


New Year's Day....2013

Happy New Year to all my friends!

I had a nice night last night. It was just my mom, dad and me and mommy told me that's how they like to celebrate NYE. I was with them last year, but I really don't remember that at all because I was so young.

I had mentioned in an earlier entry that I didn't know whether I would be able to stay awake until midnight to celebrate, but I got smart about it. I took a long evening nap and woke up 10 minutes before all the celebrating. My mom posted a new pic of me with my heavy eyes. I'm used to going to bed early because we all usually have to get up early and those habits are hard to break.

I did get Mom up early this morning to take me out, but she was happy to do it. We came back in a snuggled in bed with Dad until 7. I went back out again, and Mom fed me and played with me.

I just noticed that there is a wonderful patch of sun coming in one of the windows, so off I go to enjoy. It's only 8 degrees up here today!

I want to wish all my doggie friends happiness, good health, fun walks and runs in the new year!!

Your furry friend,


Nap Time....New Year's Eve 2012

I did get to have a nice, warm, cuddly nap wth my mom this afternoon, but that sure hasn't kept me from napping on my favorite rocking chair this evening! It's only 7:30 here. I've had my dinner, been out, played with mom and dad and had an ice cube for a treat! After laying on the deck for awhile, the wind got to me, so I came in to nap!

Mom said she is going to take a picture of me at New Years tonight to show everyone how I can't take staying up late. Stay tuned!

Happy New Year to all my friends!!!


New Years Eve Day 2012

I didn't have a very good night last night. The Coyotes were howling a lot outside and kept me awake and barking back at them. I'm very brave from the safety of being inside, but they do scare me when I'm out at night and here them. The bad part of last night was that I kept my mom up most of the night, too.

I did sleep in until almost 7AM, though, and Mom took me out right away for a nice walk once I got up. I had to check things out in person outside to make sure those pesky coyotes weren't around! We came back in and I got my breakfast right away. I sure was hungry!! Mom then played with me for almost 2 hours, took me back out and now I'm thinking it's time for my morning nap.

I do want to say thank you to all my new friends for requsting me and to Dogster for choosing my Diary as Diary of the Day yesterday. My humans were very happy and bragging to all of our family and friends about it!

I'm off to nap. I'm hoping that after lunch with my mom and dad, there will be another long walk for the afternoon. Maybe my mom will even cuddle up with me for an afternoon nap!


I am Diary of the Day!! (Sunday)

My mom woke me up very early this morning to tell me that I had been chosen "Diary of the Day"! I was happy because she was, but honestly, I don't know what that is! That's ok, because I love it when mom and dad are happy.

I meant to write in my diary yesterday, but mom and dad were so busy getting ready to watch our beloved West Virginia Mountaineers play football. Our team didn't win, but I still love WVU and bark loudly when they score.

I've been to West Virginia 3 times now with my mom and dad. It's a very long car ride from where we live (in Chicago) to Morgantown, WV, but I'm usually a good boy and sit in the back seat looking out the window at all the big trucks or sleeping.

Today (so they say) is another football game. I think I'll take a nap during this one!

Thanks again for choosing me! I am going to tell all my friends and family!!



Thursday...the day after my Gotcha Day!

My human mom decided today to take all of our Christmas stuff down and put it away. I really tried to help by walking around with her, picking up dropped items (sometimes I ran with them....but that's just me!) and then generally just staying out of the way! I did not get my usual morning nap, so I was very tired this afternoon. I did get lots of walks, though. My humans are so good to me!
