Yesterday Mom took us all down to the lab pen. It was cold and it was even SNOWING!!! It was snowing SO MUCH that Laurie even closed the kennel early and went home.
And, Mom neglected to put our jackets on us. We must have 90 thousand jackets in this house but NOT ONE of us got a jacket to wear down there.
Sooo, when Mom headed out thru the shed I chose to park myself IN the shed, hehehe. I was joined in there by Annie. Harvey and Barney, the hairless wonders, didn't even leave the house!!!! Wish I had thought of that!
Well, Momsie got lots and lots of the other three guys playing in the snow. She must have had HUNDREDS of them, maybe even 90 thousand??? When they got home she put the best of those photos on their pages. The rest of us were made out to look like wimps without any Winter snow photos.
Comes another day, when Mom came home from work she put us all outside to do our stuff. Surprise, it was bright sun and actually quite warm in that bright sun. Mom must have noticed, too, because next thing I knew, she came out the shed door with her camera.
I raced down the hill and ran and ran and ran. I pivoted, jumped, twirled, rolled, and all that other stuff one does in fresh snow when the warm sun is shining. Mom was snapping away with her camera.
Finally, we headed home, and Mom got busy getting all those photos from her camera to the computer. Finally, she was done and I noticed I had LOTS and LOTS of photos showing me cavorting in the snow.
Next, Mom sat down at the computer to add them to our pages. Uh oh, there was no way the site would even let her get on to our account page. Sadly, Mom set her browser to start with our account page since the home page doesn't open for us.
Hours later, she discovered she could get to Jones page by following the links from a pmail. Next, she tried desperately to add the photos. Usually when all else fails, she can add them thru the account page but there was no account page. Soo, she tried to add them thru the task bar on each one of our pages. NONE of them would work, except, suddenly, she managed to get to the add a photo page for MY page only. YES!!! no, it didn't work.
After ages and ages she DID get to my add a diary page, so you will have to trust me that I really DO have some great photos of me playing in the snow. Knowing Mom she WILL keep trying but I am not holding my breath!!!
I came back to tell you what happened next... Mom tried again and when she got to MY photo manager page something was BAD WRONG... all the ads were in a foreign currency, not American which is the only foreign currency Mom knows! Funny, huh???

Wow, I actually made it to two years old!! Mom said she wasn't sure that would happen since I had such an awful first year. Well, I sure surprised her, and I even grew some more this last year.
I am still MUCH smaller than I should be, even my tiny mommy Lola was bigger than me! And, I do have some problem with my back legs and they make me limp lots. Mom took me to the vets and they said my conformation is messed up, in plain English, my legs are crooked.
I don't care, I can still chase the cats and I can still run after my toys. That is all I need to do, right???
For my birthday Mom got me a special cookie and I didn't even share it with the others. They don't share theirs with me so why should I let them have some of mine???
Anyway, other than that I have had a decent day but it is FREEZING COLD here today so I stayed inside most of the day.
Now I gotta go cuz even though the clock says it's only 3:30 my tummy says it feels a whole hour later than that and feels like my dinner time!!! We are all going to stare at Mom and see if she will feed us, BOL!
Thanks everyone for the well wishes and gifts.

Yup, you heard it first from me, I did indeed choke and Mom was pretty worried, let me tell you! You see, I am like my mother Lola and I am always chewing on stuff. Usually I chew on safe stuff, but I do have a particular fondness for water bottle caps.
Last week I was innocently chewing on a bottle cap and Mom told me to drop it. I sometimes listen, but I often do NOT listen and this being the latter, I raced under the table. Mom came after me so I did what any self respecting Frenchie would do...I swallowed the bottle cap.
Alas, it got stuck right in my throat and I started coughing and gagging. Mom was a bit concerned so she tried to pry open my mouth and reach in. I was scared, so I tried to bite her fingers off. Mom wasn't sure what to do so she was going to call the vets when I started turning blue and couldn't breathe.
She grabbed her keys and threw me into the car and raced up the hill to the vets next door. She grabbed me and ran inside. The receptionist was trying to ask her what she wanted but Mom just ran right by her and went out back and yelled for someone to help her.
The vet came over and she also tried to open my mouth and put that tooth pincher thingie on my teeth but she couldn't do it either. So, she told Mom they would have to knock me out. Mom said fine, so she was getting the stuff to inject me with when I realized they said "Knock me out!!!" Immediately, I gagged and coughed and Mom was surprised to find a bottle cap right on the table!!!
But, I didn't get away without a shot, darn it all. The vet said the cap was all bloody which meant it had scratched my throat so I would need some antibiotics...ie., a SHOT!!! Yes, it HURT!!! Then, she gave me some nasty tasting liquid to coat my throat and sent me home. It was very exciting but I was exhausted so when I got home I went right to bed! Mom said that was a good place for me.
