Whoopeee, Skye just told me we are going camping in a few weeks. I cannot wait!!! As you probably know, I love camping best and kayaking second best. Camping wins because we can go kayaking whilst we are camping, BOL!
We are going to the usual Pillsbury ST. Park, but unlike years past this year we were unable to get our usual site and therefore have to try a different one. Mom was a skeptic about the one we chose but Skye and I remember it and it is fine and dandy!
Problem is, we are getting ME a baby sister next weekend and that means she will be going camping with us. I can't imagine sleeping with a little brat puppy, probably not even a housebroken brat puppy. Hope Mom brings a crate!!!
BTW, Beanie is being impossible lately, ever since he found out that Angie, MY new puppy, is related to him. Seems Angie's grandpa Chaz is Beanie's Uncle so that means that Angie's great grandma is Beanie's great great grandmomma. Phew, did you follow that one????
I didn't wanna upset Beanie's applecart but I would like to point out to all of you that MY great grandpop is also Angie's great grandpop... so how do you think that Beanie boy will like that one???
At any rate, I am sure Angie will choose to sleep with me and Skye and
Beanie will be stuck with Momsie, who may even roll over on him, BOL,BOL!
Well, gotta go now, it is almost time for Mom to come home from work and we might do something fun tonight. Ahhhh, nope, guess not, I just realized it is 90 degrees outside right now...UGLY!!!

Finally, Summer has arrived, or at least it was here for a couple of days. But, this week has been COLD and RAINY. My favorite thing, second only to running thru snow, is to go kayaking. Last year we started going in April. Here it is the last day of May and we haven't even gone once yet!!!
Mom did get the kayaks out of the shed and up by the car last weekend. She and my Skye got the racks on the car, but then a huge wind storm, complete with thunder and lightening came along and that was that!
My Julia called today and wanted to go but again, it was cold and windy and kept raining on us. Maybe tomorrow???
Meanwhile, I was able to go for a double run in the lab pen. Mom didn't work today so we went down this morning, then her lab friend came along and we got to go back down there with Quincy's sister, Gemma.
I like Gemma, she has lots of respect for me, her elder. When she has a toy I want I just roar over to her and she gives it to me immediately. Come to think of it, Quincy is the same way, hehehe. Would you believe he has to run thru the house and out the door to the dog yard BACKWARDS??? Yup, it's true. He is so afraid that ME and/or Riley and/or Annie are going to get him that he has to run backwards to keep his eye on us. Every once in a while we do get a good nip in, but so far there has been no blood shed.
Once we all get outside everything is cool and we even let him play with our toys!
Well, gotta go now, it's bedtime and I need my beauty sleep.

Wow, it has been FOREVER since Momsie allowed us access to the puter to write a diary. She has been reading the forums and posting on there, but she just plain old quit helping us write diaries.
She says she's been busy. I have to tell you, being busy didn't stop her from getting a whole bunch of little fishes and putting fishy swimming pools all over the house. She says they are easier than us dogs, but frankly, I am not so sure. She is always messing with them and feeding them and cleaning them and junk like that. She even buys them stuff like lights and heaters and stuff like that.
There is a plus, however, at least for me. I am the one that gets to go in to the fish store with her. It's pretty neat there, they have lots and lots of dogs there and usually even some kids for me to meet. And, the people there like me so I get to even hang around without my leash when I am in there. They sometimes give me treats but since Mom was so good at teaching me not to take food from strangers, I pass on the treats.
Meanwhile, our house just keeps getting more and more and more dogs! Mom says they aren't staying, but, hey, she's said that before and look at us now!
First there is my niece Pixie. Her mother was my first wife, Jenny and her father was Thomas. She is black like me and is 6 years old. She was a failed home, not her fault and not her owners fault...they just didn't like each other for whatever reason. Mom is only mad that they didn't bring her back way, way back when she was still very young. Mom says she is just staying until Mom can fix her issues, then she will have a new home.
And, then there is Zoey and Hilda. Most of you know Hilda, the Frenchie that lives here usually in the Summer. Well, Zoey is their lab and she has some cancer in her kidneys so Mom wouldn't put her in the kennel, instead she is in MY room!!! It's okay, she is very nice and we all know her anyway. Hilda is in the in/out doggy pen with her buddy, Jones. Jones had to come home because he is very dirty in the kennel and the girls were getting mad at him. Mom said it is warm enough on that side of the house now so he and Hilda are fine. I think Hilda and Zoey are only staying for another week.
Well, I better go now, Mom just gave US some nice, meaty bones and I gotta get chewing before someone steals MINE!!!
