Arrival Story:
China belonged to our nextdoor neighbors. When tragedy befell the family, they decided to move. They had 4 dogs and could not keep them all. During the move China decided to adopt us as her legal guardians. When we came home from work, she would pop-out through the hole in the fence and greet us. Once we fed her, because she was being neglected, the move to our house was complete. Thank goodness our neighbor agreed, since we had already fallen head over heels for her.

We also wanted China since she was and still is a very good companion for our other dog who has bad hips

Snow Day then Breakfast with Grandpa!!!

Yesterday we went up to the snow!! I love the snow!! I love walking through it and feeling how cold it is. It makes me feel like a wolf, awooooooooooo!! We piled in the car and went up into the local mountains where the snow is. Even though we were only there for a short time, I had such a good time. Then we went out to eat at Chipotle followed by a really fun visit to PetSmart. I got to see and torment the rats and chinchillas. And when we checkout, we always get yummy treats and attention.

Follow up that great day with Sunday breakfast with grandpa at our favorite place, Brookside Country Club. Unfortunately, there were no squirrels out today for me to hunt, but my daddy brought me over to the coy pond. Wow, are those fish stupid!! They actually come over to me, like I am going to be their friend, or like I am giving them food. No!! they are going to be MY food!! (that is if I ever catch one)

Finally, we ended our day with a fun trip to Petco where my brother stole a bunch of treats from the treat smorgasbord. Daddy told the manager that he stole treats, and Spyro got away with it. Actually, the manager gave us all of the treats that daddy was going to buy for free. I like him, he has been there since I was a pup.

What a great weekend!! Best weekend EVER!!!!!
Now it is time to... zzzzzzzzzzzz.....


Wiggle Waggle Walk!!

Today was the annual "Wiggle Waggle Walk", a fundraiser for the Pasadena Humane Society, the one that my dearly departed older sister came from. I have been to this event before. It is really fun but all of the hundreds and hundreds of dogs there kind of frightened me. However, this year my beloved dog-walker came with us. She brought her boyfriend and 4 dogs. It was amazing how we all just kind of fell into a tight little pack and I was not scared of any of her dogs.

Anyhow, as daddy went to register us for the walk, mommy took us over to see Megan, my beloved dog-walker. Boy, I was soooooo excited to see her!!!! This is not even my walk day, what a wonderful surprise!!!!!

Now, there are two walks you can take, the 1 mile or 3 mile walks. We usually do the 1 mile because when Bella was around, that was all she could handle. However, 2 years ago daddy and I tried the 3 mile walk. It was boring!!! Just daddy and I with no one to talk or walk with. I told daddy I was bored and he took me back early. So this year, since my little brother, Spyro and I both like long hikes, daddy and mommy decided it was time to try the 3 mile walk, well that and my beloved Megan wanted to do the 3 mile too. It was fun, but really really HOT!!!!! Now, I do not like to stop for water while walking, so I passed up all of the water stations and must have drank about an entire bottle of water later, after the walk. We actually finished the 3 mile walk this time. Daddy was so proud, even though his foot hurt. Was I proud too??? Nahhhh, this is old hat to me since Megan takes me on 3 to more mile hikes all the time. I just minded the heat a little.

After that we visited the booths and ate lunch together.


Daddy took us to a little coy pond along the way. Boy are those fish DUMB!!!! They have very poor judgement. I walked up to the the very edge of the pond and looked in. The fish swam right up to me and I tried to jump in to catch one. Stupid leash, attached to stupid daddy. If it weren't for that, I might have had a fresh fish lunch.

Best of all, along the way, I found a SQUIRREL!!!! I dragged daddy over to the tree and baby brother, Spyro yelped and carried on. Hmph, can't take the little ones anywhere without them causing a scene. Really, he needs to learn better hunting techniques. Anyways, it was really fun.


What?? Am I tired now?? Nahhhhh, not me. It takes a lot more than a simple hike to tire me ouuuuuuuu.........

ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.....zzzzzzzzzzzzzz... .zzzzzzzzzzz.....


I FORCED my Parents to enroll me in Obedience Classes...- AGAIN!!

Spyro started his obedience training classes at Pasanita Obedience Club the other week and mommy went out into the large circle with him.


So I hung out with daddy who took me on walks and sat and watched. I had a hard time sitting and watching, as I wanted to be out there with them working!! So finally, after making all sorts of noise and pulling really hard on my leash, they decided to sign me up for a class that I already took many moons ago.

See, being cute and anxious can get you what you want in life!!!

So now I am in the class with my brother, Spyro and my granddaddy's new puppy too. We are having a great time and I get to practice things that I learned a long time ago. I think all of the other dogs are looking up to me as the star of the class. I am able to do everything right away. It is great!!! It is great for my ego too. Actually, I really don't care, I just like doing the work and getting the treats!!

Besides, we really don't have to tell the other dogs who idolize me that this is not my first time in this class, right???

Shhhhhh, this is between you and me...

Remember, loose lips sink ships, or something like that.
