Some thoughts before a snooze...

Wow...Mom has been hogging the computer for a while now. She won't even let me come on here and write in my diary! Sheesh!

I just thought I'd bark a line before I curl up on Mom's bed for a little nap before bed. Nothing too exciting has been happening on this side of the fence. Mom bought me some new toys...which I promptly chewed to smithereens (that's why she bought them, right?) She also bought me some yummy new treats...she said something about them being "healthy" or something, but they taste good, so I don't care!

Mom keeps saying she needs to give me a hopefully she won't post any of those silly bath pictures. They sure are embarrassing! Besides, she should realize how much time and effort went into getting this comfortable in my own fur.

Yawn! Woof! Time to curl up for a sleep. Until next time....

Boy, whoa boy! I got to go and see all those other dogs after Mom took me in the car and we played and chased balls and played and sorta listened, but we played a whole lot! Then, then the worst part came. It was lots of fun chasing that red ball, and even listening to Mom to get treats was okay too, but then it happened. They put something on my head and made me stay so they could flash something at me. Then, they did it AGAIN! It only lasted a couple of minutes, but it felt like a lifetime.

The good news is that Mom said I graduated, whatever that means. I just hope I get to go and see some more pups to play with!

Until next time,
