My beautiful friend, Gretta, tagged me! The rules to this game are to put in four of the following and then tag four other pups! So here goes:
Name four jobs that you've had.
1. Bed Warmer: at night I crawl into bed, right in the special place where Mom can wrap her arms around me, and keep her warm all night long.
2. Squirrel Chaser: When mom opens the door, I run after those pesky squirrels and tell them to get out of my back yard!
3. Vacuum: I stand in the kitchen and stare at the floor. When food magically appears on the floor (really, it is quite amazing), I pick it up before it can leave a mark!
4. Best Friend: I am Mom's best friend. She tells me all of her secrets and I listen intently. This is the most important job a pooch can have!
Four places you have lived.
1. The place where I was born. I don't remember much about it.
2. The apartment.
3. The house.
Four places where you have been.
1. Camping in Sisters, Oregon. I got to sleep in the tent with Mom!
2. Cannon Beach, Oregon. This is the best beach to run free!
3. Waterfront Park in Portland, Oregon. Portland is the dog-friendliest city in the USA!
4. Multnomah Falls, Oregon. We hiked to the top!
Four places you'd rather be.
1. Running errands with Mom in the car.
2. Running on the beach with Conrad.
3. Doggie Daycare with all of my friends.
4. Walking through the woods with Mom.
Friends I choose to play tag:

Summer is over and the leaves are starting to fall. When I go outside, the leaves stick to my fur and I bring them into the house. I like bringing the yard into the house because playing outside is so much fun, but I still get to nap on the sofa when the need arises.
I had a great summer! Mommy's friends from the East Coast came for a visit and we went fishing on a boat! Mommy bought me my very own life jacket and I even got to take a dip in the river. At first I was a little nervous in the water, but as soon as I realized that my life jacket would help me float, I wasn't worried anymore. Mommy caught a fish, and then the fish flip-flopped around and caught her! The hook went right into Mommy's thumb! Mommy cried, and then she laughed when they pulled the hook out and her thumb didn't even bleed!
The day after my mommy's friends left, my Auntie Dianne came for a visit. We went camping and I got to sleep in a tent for the very first time. Mommy put me into her sleeping bag, but I wanted to sleep next to my cousin, Conrad. I started to shiver and it woke Mommy up, so she put me back into the sleeping bag. Conrad was shivering, too, so mommy put blankets over him to keep him warm. It was nice to be toasty warm again, and we stayed under the covers for the entire night. I also got to play with my human cousins, and it was so much fun!
Then the coolest thing happened---I had my FIRST BIRTHDAY! Mommy bought me lots of treats and toys, and then she made me my very own pupcake! I can't wait for my next birthday! Mommy says I need to slow down a bit because time flies way to fast and then I will be old like Grandma. I like the old Grandma, but she has a lot of aches and pains, and I definitely don't want that!
Mommy then went to visit her friends on the East Coast. She was only gone for a week, but it felt like eternity for me! I stayed at Grandma's house, but Grandma was on a trip, so my uncle took care of me. He even brought Conrad with him. I love Conrad---he is my second-best friend. Mommy is my first-best friend, of course! I missed her so much, and she says she missed me, too! I have never met this East Coast thing, but Mommy says she is going to take me with her next time. I am so excited!
Mommy is leaving again in two weeks. She can't take me with her because she is going to another country. Grandma is going with her, so Grandpa is going to take care of me. I know Grandpa will take good care of me, but I am going to miss Mommy. When mommy comes home from her trips, I wiggle my butt so much that it makes my whole body move. Then I let out low-pitch groans because I am so excited.
Well, it is time for bed. I have to get up early to practice some agility stuff. I want to make sure I am in top shape before heading to class!

Mommy worked for seven straight days, so I spent the entire week with Grandma! When Mommy got off work on Friday morning, she went straight to Grandma's house to pick me up. I heard the door open, so I ran from Grandma's room and ran halfway up the steps. I stopped, cocked my head to the side and stared at Mommy for a good three seconds. Was I dreaming, or was it really her? Then Mommy said something I couldn't understand (you know, it would be so much easier to understand her if she would just bark). It WAS Mommy! I ran to her and I couldn't stop wiggling my butt, licking her face, and jumping all over the place! Mommy said she missed me so much, and I definitely missed her, too!
Mom stayed at Grandma's house for a couple of hours so they could visit. Then she noticed me scooting my butt on the floor, so she took me to the dog wash for a bath. Mommy finally learned how to relieve me of that problem. She even gagged! After my bath, she chatted with some of the trainers and they invited me to stay for the rest of the day at Doggy Daycare. Mommy kept saying she felt guilty, but she left me there anyway so she could sleep. I didn't mind one bit! Since it wasn't my usual daycare day, I got to play with some new dogs! Mommy picked me up after her nap and I was so excited all over again!
Next we went to pick up my cousin, Conrad. His Daddy was going to a place where Conrad wasn't allowed to go. Mommy took us to Petco and she bought us some bully sticks and pig ears----yummm. She even bought a ball thrower! Then we went to the Dog Park! It was an action-packed day! Conrad stayed with Grandma that night because Mommy wanted some "alone time" with me! It was a great day!
Saturday was Mommy's Barkday! We went to Petco AGAIN and then to my agility class. It was so much fun! Mommy says it is more fun to buy me presents than to buy presents for herself. After that, we went to Grandma's house. Mommy left AGAIN! She went to the place with my uncle (the place where Conrad and I aren't allowed to go) for a couple of hours. They wanted Mommy to stay the night, but Mommy told them that she needed to go home to be with me. When Mommy got to Grandma's, she told me some very exciting news! On Thursday we are going to meet Mommy's friend and her dog at the Dog Park! Yip-Yipee! On Friday, we are going to go in the boat with her other friend! I have never been in a boat before, so I am very excited! Tomorrow we have to go to Petco AGAIN to buy me one of those cool life jackets! I am SO excited!
Tonight Conrad got to come home with us. He gave Mommy the "sad Lab eyes" when Mommy considered leaving him with Grandma. Conrad knows I have cool toys and plenty of treats---besides, my Mommy is so cool and all the doggies love her! We cuddled on the floor for a little while and Mommy loved seeing him with his paws wrapped around me as we were lying on the floor.
Well, it is time to go potty, so I have to go (literally)!
