Free bath my %$@!!!!!

Today a truck kept going through my alley so I barked at it and told it to go away (of course). One of the times it drove through, it went really slow and sounded much louder than before, so I barked even more. But this time, as it drove past the gate, it sprayed me with water!!!!
I went in and told Dad right away. At first he looked pretty mad because he thought some jerk squirted me, but when he saw that I got wet from a truck that was going through the alley cleaning the walls, he thought it was funny and told me I got a free bath! I didn't find it so funny. What's worse is that he then shampooed me up and gave me a real bath!!!!!

The next time a truck went through the alley, I just stayed inside.

 

Take that, Mom!

Like all of you out there, I let my parents think they are in control when we go on walks. Today I saw that dog that the owner never lets me meet, but today I decided I was going to meet it, no matter what Mom had to say about it. The dog was approaching from behind, and I did my usual trick of pretending to sniff the ground extra long so I could check her out. Mom tried her best to get me to keep moving, but I had had enough. I decided I was just going to lie down in the middle of the sidewalk and wait for the dog to come to me. Mom couldn't do anything but wait! Ha! Then the dog snipped at me and I had to hide behind Mom. I can't wait for the next walk!

Last night I got to go over to Jack's place for a play-date. What a great surprise!
We chased and play-fought ourselves into exhasustion as usual. I've been napping all day today to recover.

I also tried to sneak in some kissing, but our parents saw us and teased us about it. How embarrassing!!!
