Riding in the car with mom, bubba Chief, visiting Camp Herbie - our place on the lake in Arkansas where Daddy and Chief are for now. Acres to run on - water to swim in - birds to bark at, and deer to terrierize

Pet-Peeves:
Doodle and Meanie (the cats) standing outside the door and taunting him. He also hates to get left home. If Herbie sees me put my SHOES on - he guards the door, just in case I'm going someplace! He also seems to be quite annoyed by birds. Yap Yap!

Low hanging tree limbs, smelly dirty tennis ball, ice cubes

Favorite Food:
anything that Mom is eating - including apples, jello, watermelon, & shredded wheat

Down to the lake and back

Best Tricks:
Sitting when you point your finger. Not begging when you tell him "Not for doggies". Modeling for Paws4fashion boutique.

Arrival Story:
My first house dog, Herbie was the runt of his litter. I named him Herbie because he was just a handful of love bug when I got him. Welsh terriers are very rare where I live - and I try to take him a lot of places so that people can see what a neat little critter he is. He's dropped out of 2 obedience schools - that's probably my fault - ok it IS my fault. He did learn sit really really good first though!

Bio:
I've had dogs my entire adult life, but none like this little fellow. He's smart, he's loving, and he's so very very gentle. He's also tenacious, stubborn, and willful! He's great company for me since I work at home doing website design and promotion work (NO NOT SPAM!) www.yourwebpages.com

Dog Days of Summer

Wow - summer is really here ===SO why am I still wearing this FUR COAT!!???
Mom - it's HOT OUT THERE!!
We got up early this morning so I could watch those early birds and their worms. It's a lot cooler and I can run around and play. Then mom lets me stay during the hot part of the day inside where it's VERY cool.

Did ya'll see that Welsh Terriers are the breed of the week? BbbREAD all about it! And .. *coughs modestly* - Did you notice who the Welsh example is? YAP YAP! it's little ole me! No pawtographs please ... I'm just a simple terrier - in charge of my part of the world (and yours if I happen to visit there)

Mom got her Dogster Tshirt for her the other day. She's going to wear it to a car show today - watch out dogster - you may get some new members today!
Oh boy .. new pup pals for me too!

 

The Gardener

I like the gardener. He makes the grass short and makes the fleas go away.
I don't like that noisy machine he uses though. Maybe if he'd let me ride on it too ... hmmm, how do I get him to do that.
He keeps my yard clean too - he scoops up my poop. I don't know what he does with it. What could he do with it? Is there a market for dog poop? Poop is a very interesting subject among my dog friends. Who eats it, who doesn't. Who's poop smells best - yappa yappa yappa.
The gardener lets me lick him too (but don't tell Mom). He's always sweaty and tastes really salty. Sometimes when he cools himself off with the hose - he'll squirt me with it too. I think he really likes me. He even shared his lunch with me one day. Yah, I'm pretty sure he likes me.

 

In my neighborhood

It's usually pretty boring in my neighborhood. Mom made it more exciting for me today - she threw the leftover popcorn out in the yard (where I can't reach it ) - but the good news is - it gave me lots and lots of birds to bark at! I finally got them all barked away. It took me a few hours though.

Since school is out I have some other things to bark at. Kids. I like kids.
They left me lick them and they usually taste pretty good. They don't wash their hands much. My neighbor boy Zack comes over to play with sometimes. He usually brings a friend. They'll throw the ball for me for hours. Yesterday though, he brought a friend and he brought 2 little cats (Mom called them kittens). I could only look at them from inside - but Mom got to hold them. They aren't all that - believe me. They acted scared to death (and I didn't even bark at them or sniff them). They had creepy stuff coming out their noses too. I'm not a big kitten fan - unless it's for supper . Mom NEVER lets me have kitten for supper.

I had to go try on some new stuff for Mom and Judy's dog store. They're going to try selling on ebay. I didn't do so good - so they're using a stuffed dog this time.
