Favorite Walk: When Grandpa takes him for long walks 2.
Best Tricks: Sit, Down, stealing dad's socks & passing silent gas.
Arrival Story: Found through Champion Breeder: MtnHighMinis.com Frankie was a gift to my wife for our second wedding anniversary, but soon became daddy's little boy and best friend. Has helped dad out immensly with life in general.
I can't believe I'm 9 years old now. I don't feel middle aged. Oh, I slow down here and there, but for the most part, I'm as alert, watchful, and playful as ever. Just ask my dad! I get him up every morning for my first round of petting at 5:30 am, then after he has his coffee and wakes up we play a bit before he goes to work.
And I walk anywhere from 2 to 5 miles a day, every day. Thanks dad, grandma and grandpa for all the good food you give me. See, I'm a living example of what high quality dog food can do for you. I just had my physical, and even though my liver enzymes are slightly elevated, I'm in otherwise tip-top condition.
For my birthday daddy gave me a special dinner and grandma and grandpa brought me over special puppy-approved cupcakes with little bones and cats on them. Then this Sunday we will all go to a restaurant where they allow us four legged friends there, and then a nice stroll around the lake with my family.
Daddy also has a new lady in his life, and she has two dogs herself. Yes, I can get a bit jealous at times, but I'm allowed at 9. They are silly puppies, one is about a year old, the other just a few months, so I'm the alpha...especially at my house.
Wowzers, I can't believe it feels liek summer here in the middle of January.
It's been so windy here at night that daddy has been getting up early in the morning to walk me before he goes to work. It's a bit cooler, and all that dust isn't blowing in my face, but it makes for a long day.
And to think, I got all these new hoodies and sweaters for Christmas I haven't even been able to put on yet because it's been so warm as of late.
Well, not too much to report here. Daddy switched me to a new food called Simply Nourish and I'm responding very well to it. Even at 8.5 years old, I have a lot of energy and my checkups are going fairly well. I have been a bit jealous of daddy though lately. He has a new lady friend who like to sit with him on the couch and I get wierd when they touch their faces together. I start to growl and try to seperate them and daddy doesn't understand why I make such a big deal of it...but then he throws me a treat to placate me, so whose working hwo here?
She's allright though....she likes to go on walks with me and daddy and doesn't mind playing with me. She even bought me some toys for Christmas too!
Wowzers, not sure whose birthday it was....grandma's or mine! Even though grandma turned 67, I'm the one who got treats!!
Daddy took me down to their house on Sunday and I was greated with cottage cheese and organic pumpkin puree!! Yummy.
Then a little later grandma gave me a new toy (big plush snake) and another chew treat.
As we watched football (poor Green Bay...close game) I got petted, tickeled, and massaged for almost an hour!!
Then daddy brough me home and we spent the afternoon together, until daddy took me over to a friends house to help her set up her new TV. I got to roam around a whole new house and play with the kids there, and even took a stroll around the neighborhood. What a new adventure!
By the way....A big thank you to Dogster and all those that sent me messages. What a compliment it is to me chosen as Diary of the Day!! Thank you all again!
