Well, it seems that Thanksgiving was the end of my getting to run. Mom has had a bad cold and won't take me to the park. She says I might not go to the park again until the weather warms up in the spring. That upsets me. Every day I tell Mom I want to go to the park. I tell her and tell her and tell her. She just keeps saying no park. Grrrrrrr.

I have had to find other things to do. She left the keenex box where I could reach it on the bed, so I took out all the kleenex and piled them very neatly one on top of another. I counted them as I went...one, one, one, one. I ended up with one. Mom said there were actually a lot more, but she was very impressed with how I had them stacked. A couple of days later she forgot them again (she says it's this cold thing she has) and I didn't touch them this time. She was again impressed (it sure doesn't take much to impress her) and I got a treat. I love treats. After I chewed up my treat I went back to the bedroom where Mom had left me a nice glass of water on the head of the bed, right where I could reach it, and took a good long lap. I thought it was very considerate of her to leave it there all day so I could nap in the bed and not have to go far to get a drink. I wanted her to see how much I appreciated it, but she laughed and laughed. I like when Mommy laughs. It is a happy sound, and it makes me wag my tail. I wonder why she hasn't left me a glass of water since that?

 

My Thanksgiving Vacation

Mom thought she was doing something special going away for awhile over Thanksgiving, but I was the one that really got a good vacation. I stayed with my Auntie Arlene for a few days, then my bestest buds, Andrea and the awesome Ben came and got me and we went to my new Grandmom's in Indiana. (I don't think she is really my Grandmom--she's Andrea's Mom--but every pup ought to get treated so good, so I am claiming her as mine!) We went to Indiana to their farm and I got to run, run, run!! Ben took me and their dog for long walks in the woods, and I didn't even mind the cold. The only bad part was when Andrea kept combing the burrs out of my beautiful hair.

My new Grandmom said I could come back anytime, and Mom could even leave me there if she was coming that way. She told Andrea to be sure to tell Mom that she was lucky to get me back! I wonder what that meant?

Then I met the cat...it was a great big mean cat. I ran and hid behind Ben and we both stayed way away from the cat. But then we went to visit Andrea's friend, and she had a nice cat. I didn't know cats could be nice. I have only met mean ones. It sniffed my nose then rolled over on its back for me to sniff it all over. I wish all cats could be like that.

I was sad when Ben and Andrea brought me home. First they put me in a kennel in the back seat because the weather was bad for driving and they said they wanted us all to be safe. Then they took me home to my Mom. I love my Mom, and was happy to see her, but I didn't want them to leave. I kept sitting between them in the kitchen to tell them they could just stay here with us, but they left anyhow. I sat at the kitchen door for a long time waiting for them to come back. I don't understand why that made Mom sad. They are so nice and fun, and I thought she would want them to come back too. She seemed much happier, though, when I gave up and just went and got one of my toys for Mom to play with. I hope I get to go back again soon!

 

I get to stay with Auntie Arlene

I get to stay with my Auntie Arlene Friday night. I thought I would share with everyone how I managed to do it with an email:

Hi Auntie Arlene. My mom is going away overnight Friday and I want to come stay with you. Can I, huh, huh, can I?
Lexi

P.S. Mom said it is ok with her if it is ok with you. She said she is going away for about a week starting the 17th, and if this works out (I will be good, I promise) maybe you would like me to come play with you and sleep with you for a few days later this month, too.

PPS I told Mom you would have to give me my treats and take me to the park and let me sleep with you or someone, cause I like to sleep under the covers. She promised to talk to you about it. (I want ice cream too, but Splenda gives me the squirts.)

I love you,
Lexi the bestest Schnauzer

It was so good I got this reply:

Dear Sweet Niece, Lexi,
Tell your mom you can stay with me any time you want and you can sleep with me, too. I don't have a fancy house, but you probably won't mind. Loving ice cream runs in our family, so I'll make sure you get ice cream, but we'll definitely make sure that you don't get Splenda. If you don't know how to use the phone, tell your mom to call me or send me another email. Here's my number (Mom made me leave this part out). See you soon.

Yeah, she loves me. It's going to be fun. I just tried on the ice cream, never thinking I would actually get any (unless it was a birthday, of course). But it worked!!!!

 

Great Weekend

What a great weekend. I always know it is the weekend because Mommy doesn't go to work. She stays home with me or takes me out lots of places. We went to White Oak Park just down the street from our house on Saturday and walked the whole park twice. Mom says it is a small park, and the weather was just right and maybe I wouldn't whine anymore today if she wore me out. I am supposed to be on a leash, but Mom lets me run there if no one else is around. We went back there this morning and I ran and ran really fast. It is so much fun smelling all the places where other dogs have been and then squatting over them. In the afternoon we went to another park way out Hamill Road. (I didn't even whine to get Mom to take me!) Mom said it is too pretty outside to stay inside. I had to stay on my leash, but I got to say hi to another speckly looking dog that had a really dumb looking rubber chicken. I made fun of a couple of little poodles, but then I saw a poodle that was way bigger than me, so maybe I won't make fun of poodles any more. We walked a long way and I got hot, but Mom shared her water with me. Then we went for pizza and I got some of that, too. It' sure been a great weekend! I wish every day was a weekend!

 

New friends

I got to go visit my friend Legolas on Saturday. I also met his brother Sam and sister Swoosh. They are on Dogster too. I was scared at first cause Sam is so big, but Mom kept telling me he is really just a puppy still, so I gave him a chance and found out he is really nice and fun to play with. We played ball a lot and jumped up on his dad's lap when I had the ball so they couldn't get it from me. So now I have another dog friend and person friend.

 

Summer's gone

Wow! What a great summer. I got to go to the park almost every day and run, run, run. Sometimes I had to learn stuff, but I learned to "heel" in only 2 days so I wouldn't have to work at it any longer. I really HATE having to "down." How can I be in charge if I am laying flat on my tummy! No more boat until next spring, but these really creepy jumpy flying bugs were taking it over and it wasn't as much fun.
Mom wouldn't take me to the park today because she said it was too cold outside. But I bet I can get her to take me when she gets home tonight--I will whine, whine, whine until she does. Won't she be surprised!
When I come in from potty in the morning now I jump into mom's bed and crawl under the covers to stay warm. It's funny 'cause she says, "Where's Lexi?" and I just hide under there and she can't find me! Sometimes I don't even come out until after she is gone!! It is warm and cozy and I just fall back to sleep.

 

My brother's birthday

Last Saturday was my 2 legged brother's birthday. It was great! We went to my boat and stayed out there almost alllllll day. I swam around my boat a lot, cause it was hot outside. No one made me get on the float this time. I hate that float. There was a lot of water in it last time, and I was leaning way over the side to get out of the water in the float (too much like being in the tub) and I fell head-first into the lake. Wasn't I suprised! My life jacket saved me and I popped right back up. Whew, that was close!

Then we went home and ate lasagne and ice cream cake. Yummy, I just love birthdays.

 

NEW PICTURES

YES! I've got new all grown up pictures now on my web page. I am so proud of them. And I didn't even have to get groomed first (although Mommy snuck up on me and gave me a bath first--yuck). I think I should be clean enough after swimming in the Tennessee River. Speaking of which, Mom let me swim a little without my life vest on Saturday. It was a little scary, but Mom says I am an excellent swimmer! Now she is seeing big turtles where I was swimming and says I have to wear my life vest all the time again "just in case."
I didn't get off the boat on Sunday at all, because I am still trying to figure out what this just in case is all about. Then my boat started not working so good, and we went home. Drat! I was getting to eat cheese twirls, and I was doing what Mom called self-serve in the boat bag because she had my special biscuits just lying loose down in there.
Maybe I will throw up in Mommy's bed tonight. Won't she be surprised!

 

STILL no new pictures

STILL no new pictures. What's wrong with Mommy? I don't want her to wait until she starts looking at me and squinting and saying "I think you need groomed again before we take pictures." She PROMISES this weekend we will get pictures and put them on the website. (Just so she doesn't try to put clothes on me--I HATE clothes!!)

My friend Legolas (who also has a dogster page) is coming to stay with me this weekend. I am so excited. Mommy rearranged my room so I can look out the other window during the day. She said it will be better for me and Legolas, too.

I hope the weather is good so we can go to my boat together this weekend, but mommy said there is a hurricane making bad weather. We'll see.

 

Groomed

I'm groomed. No use playing sick anymore.

But I had a really good 4th of July. I went to a picnic where a full band played in the yard for over an hour, and everyone pet me and said nice things to me. There was a golden retriever mix there, but she was scared of me and wouldn't play, not even when I stuck my behind up in the air and got down really low in the front. That usually works. Poor doggie. And mom wouldn't let me play with the Yorkie. She said I would squish it. They have good food at picnics!

Then I got to go to my boat and I swam a lot because it was a hot day. I slept on the big bench seat a lot, too. I got more yummy food there.

I've been having so much fun chasing the joggers at the park. Mommy gets mad at me though and says I will have to stay on my leash if I keep doing that and don't listen. I don't want to stay on my leash and I want to chase the joggers. :( Not today, though--it's raining. I am going to see how big my bladder is!
