Right now I'm sacked out from all the fun I've had today on my birthday; but, I scribbled some notes to share on my diary to all my Dogster friends how my day went...so without ado, hit it Mom!
The sun was just peaking through the trees and Mom rolled out of bed this morning, why? I don't know; but, with a kiss on the head and a stroll outside on the dewy grass on the mystical foggy morning: it was like a dream!
Chloe & I pattered our red clay filled paws onto the kitchen floor as Mom started up her day. I curled below at her feet as she typed up preparations for my birthday later that day.
Before I knew it she gathered her shoes & Chloe brought her leash & I jumped straight up in the air in excitement as it seemed we were going on a trip. After being on the road for a short while it was Petsmart! We strolled in and...it was the groomers. How disappointing. Both of our nails were grinded down, but before we left I had a new toy! Sure, I've had Kongs before, but this one softer for my gentle gums & teeth so I obliged,...there'll be treats in there someday!
In fact, I was wondering why when we returned she didn't give it to me. But before I knew it we were off in the truck again! This time we drove in the opposite direction and a girl and dog were waiting for us in a different house. Mom tied our leashes to something in the truck as she greeted the strangers. She then opened the back latch and in came the pup, (I say pup because he had to be less than 10 pounds but definitely not a young one!). We all sniffed noses, the lady said goodbye...and now there was a strange dog with us?
Well, not even 5 minutes after the new dog joined our cab ride he slipped out of his leash, (which was also tied to something else in the car so we wouldn't do who knows what), and into Mom's lap as she was driving! Oh no! She drove into a parking lot and placed him back in his spot.
When she rolled out there wasn't more than seconds away from the next "incident"...for it was a stinky one. I was shocked and couldn't say a thing, but Mom started asking something along the lines of: "That isn't what I think that is?!" and Chloe turned on her pitiful eyes as if she was disturbed that such a thing happened but would do anything for it not to be blamed on her.
Oh no, Mom knew the culprit. That stinker was quickly let out, as he was LUCKY to have done it on a Wal-Mart bag...so, we were littering today for the sake of vomiting from the smell.
Finally, we made our way to Pioneer Park and all was becoming famliar. Mom let both of us out, then "The Stinker", and a car pulled up. It was Sebastian. About 30 minutes later when the other party guest didn't arrive we took pictures & dove into the cake.
Some of the parents encouraged play and...there rolled up the last guest! We welcomed him, he grouched at us...but all in all we were there for over an hour it felt like. But we played this way, ran that way, and jumped up like wild ponies at each other as we played.
We then returned "The Stinker", which really hit it off with a Boston Terrier guest, playing this way & that. And then Mom picked up something to go for her, we went for our daily walk...and now I'm here - exhausted, but ultimately satisfied.

Ya know, more often than not I'm asked about how how I must feel with all that hair. Yep, it's sure the topic of discussion when I meet someone new. Well, there couldn't of been a better time for a cool breeze to blow in to let us feel autumn amongst us! It was gorgeous 70ish temp outside, with not a cloud in the sky! Mom decided to work on my halloween outfit today outside as Chloe ran forever after a tennis ball. I feel life is better when you view it from the porch some days, and with a cool day like this, I could nap all day. Wait, if I get a chance - I will!
Ya know, I'm so proud of how routine we've been with our walks. Moreso, I'm more flattered on what we're starting to hear when we run across some "regulars" on our walks. We always pass by the football field on our route, and on the same day, only a few paces from each other, two different women commented in a row! "There goes those pretty dogs!" said one lady with a wink, then the lady after her: "Oh! I'll take the black & white one!" ME! I put a little extra bounce in my step after that last comment!
Speaking of, a bounce in my step could have been caused by a whole different situation based on the-day-before-yesterday's occurance. When Mom let us out in the morning I heard the scurry of a squirrel up a tree. Seeing that not many people were out, Mom let us run as fast as we could to that tree. Oh we barked & barked - it was great...until I hobbled back to the porch. Mom quickly felt me up & kept checking on me all day, & I kept having a certain hop. Mom called the vet, set up an appointment, and then I stayed home for the first time in almost 2 weeks straight of our walks!
The next day, (yesterday), I woke up playful. I played as hard as my feet could take me all over the house. I chased even a different squirrel up a closer tree, and not a hop in sight. About 8 hrs went by & Mom didn't see anything to be worried about, so canceled my appointment. That evening, on our walk, a little old lady with a Boston Terrier saw us & said to her dog: "Oh look! There's your little friends!" We smelled noses & kept on our way.
Cheers to my favorite season! :)

I hope you like my picture showing off my pearly whites! Towards the end of August Mom made an appointment for me to get my teeth professionally clean & I will say so myself that there's no more stinkiness!
Mom still persists and brushes my teeth though, but oh well, we want to keep'em that way she says. There has been a lot of travels in my last month, including visiting family and just traveling to the big city. Mom says that's where we'll be there soon & honestly I think it's kind of scary!
Mom's also been making sure we get our walks in on a more better schedule now that she's graduated from that silly school. Ok, maybe I kind of miss that she's not in school anymore because I used to love being her study buddy with her late at nights.
