Well, I had a great weekend. We went to the beach on Friday and I got to run and I actually played with another dog (not greyhound!)! I hung out with mom and dad on Saturday and Sunday, and ran errands, and we went to the pet store where I got 120 inches of bully sticks! Yahoo for buy 3 get 1 free sales! They also got me a stupid halloween hat to wear to our reunion picnic - do I look like a witch to you? Pfft. I shake it off whenever I can. The one crappy part of the weekend was when I got shoved into mom's Tercel (tiny!) with lots of boxes of tile for the new bathrooms. I need room to stretch out my lovely legs! I am not a chihuahua! At least it was only for a few minutes, but really now. That was pure and simple disrespect.

Yesterday, me and mom and her friend Michelle went for a walk ALL the way to the park, around the park and ALL the way home! That was more than 2 miles. Phew! I was a trooper, and made it the whole way without too much tiredness. Then, when I got home, I got a turkey neck! It was my very first one, and it was delicious. Mom and dad were grossed out by it, but are hoping it cleans my teeth nicely.

This morning was the best part of the weekend - my friends came back to play! Oh man, I thought they were gone for good. When mom's alarm went off, I was up like a shot! I whined nearly all the way there, but it was worth it, because they came! No running today, but hopefully tomorrow. Phew, I hope they don't go away again for a very long time!


Finally Friday!

Woo hoo! It's finally Friday. This week was no fun, since my greyhound friends were off being boarded while their parents were out of town. Mom liked it, since she said she could sleep in this week - ha! I woke her up at 5:30 anyway. I was too excited to go see my friends! It was so disappointing when she just took me on a walk instead.

I'm home now, and supposed to be sleeping, but I'm whining because I miss my parents. Stupid jobs.

To console me (and also because they like it too) mom and dad are taking me to Fort Funston tonight! And my friends will be back on Monday morning! Let's cross our toes that the sprinklers in the baseball field will be OFF so we can run together.
