WOOF!?!

Last night, after chores at the farm, we went out to gather wood for the fire. Jack lagged behind and stayed out in the back field. When we went looking for him he popped up behind the pole barn. I spotted him but wasn't sure who or what he was and sent out a warning just in case. I barked with a deep resonant roar that startled everyone, especially Jack. He stopped in his tracks until I approached him with a welcome back greeting. We snuggled a bit, exchanged puppy kisses & went back into the house for the evening. Abby is still looking at me funny as if to ask, “Wow! Where did that come from?”

We are jogging today. It’s a little cloudy but perfect weather for a run. Builds up that appetite; I’m an official member of the clean-bowl club, three times a day. Even if it takes me a little longer, I take my time and get the job done.

 

Rainy days & Saturdays

Is it really December? Where did this rain come from? What a dreary day. There's alot of baking going on today. You'd think that it's time for Christmas cookies but it's not! It's puppy muffin time. I even help and have a special place in the kitchen. I'm the official taste tester. If bowl licking was an olympic sport, I'd win the gold.

But it was a lazy day for us; just too wet outside. Abby, Jack & I stayed by the fire; cozy & warm.

 

TGIF

I'm taking a break from a long afternoon of snowplay. Abby, Jack & I have been wrestling in the snow on this beautiful, sunny day.

Do you think that there's a little beagle in my blood? I got the scent of a critter and have had my nose buried in snowbanks trying to find them. Where the heck do they go in there anyway? I'll check tomorrow; time for dinner and it's salmon tonight!

 

Noisy Nights

Do you snore? I do. Never noticed it before but we discovered it last night. It's possible that I was just so tuckered out from playing in the snow. We run ALOT. Snow is so much more fun to run in - puffy white stuff everywhere. Abby & I are just a blur across the yard. Catch me if you can! :)

 

Sure shot

Yesterday we shoveled more of the white stuff, over a foot fell up here. We all become abominable snow puppies tussling around in it. Then it’s so nice to be able to warm up by the fire.

In the afternoon I got to go all by myself to visit the vet. I’d been there before and they gave us lots of treats just for stopping by. This time was a little different. I still got treats but it included taking my temperature and getting my shots. I was the best girl ever! More treats for me! And the extra snacks must be working; I’ve gained four pounds. It must be the Cheetos; they are my special snack.

Plenty of playtime, breakfast muffins, yummy treats and Cheetos – it’s a banner day.

 

Snow Day

White, white, white everywhere. It's so peaceful this morning watching the silent flakes fall. Once again, Abby & I have the same idea and are just enjoying the quiet time together after Sunday morning family breakfast of eggs & toast. A little work shoveling and we're off for my favorite, a walk in the woods. Everybody together and no leashes. We run & run & run and run some more. Sundays are good.

 

Making new friends

We all went to do chores at the farm again tonight. This trip I met Montana, Dixie and Eeyore. The little donkey and I almost met nose to nose. He's really fuzzy and has the biggest ears I've ever seen! We fed all the horses, donkey and llama, Cookie. They sure were hungry. Hey, come to think of it, so was I. Farm hands sure work up an appetite.

 

Game on

The yard here is sooooooooooo big! We have open spaces, woods and obstacles to play around and climb on. Sometimes I think that Abby & I were separated at birth. We look the same, act the same and have found that we like the same games.

We play keep-away with just about anything. If she picks up a stick, I try to catch her. If I find something interesting we run all over the yard together.

Abby, Jack & I went running this afternoon. We go at least twice a week. I'm in awesome shape!

 

Wabbit season

I'm still getting used to Cat-tastic. She is a marvel to me and I am VERY curious. Sometimes I even tiptoe so quietly behind her that she doesn't even know I'm there. Quite the trick for a dog, eh?

There is a bird feeder in the yard that attracts all kinds of critters. It's the white-tail little balls of fur that get my attention. Sometimes when we go 'outside', the fuzzballs are snacking on bird seed. Abby & I race to try and catch them but they are always faster than we are and have many places in the yard to seek shelter. Still fun trying, probably notsomuch for them but great exercise for us!

There's something about the ambition of a puppy that is to be admired when it's put to good use. I'm thinking now that my leaping the kennel isn't a good thing but it's such a cool game. How do kennel walls grow overnight? :( I can't jump that high! But Abby and I have fun playing games and tussling in here. We even helped 'distribute' a bale of hay. What is shredded wheat anyway?

Abby & I got to go to work too! Lots of new people to meet. They hugged the stuffins' right out of me. Who exactly is 'Mini-Me'?
