Pups, we need to organize a protest or a sit in or a walk out or something! ANYTHING!!! Get this...this is an actual conversation between my *potentially FORMER* peeps! I think I'm going to disown them! Here's the conversation:
Mom: Babe, look at the Easter baskets I made for everyone.
Dad: Nice. We'll all be on a sugar high. Does Chippy get an Easter basket?
Mom: No. I checked his cabinet and it's overflowing with treats. Besides, he needs to take it easy and only eat his kibbles. If he gets any treats it should be the plain biscuits until his system settles back down from his allergic reaction.
Dad: That sounds fair. Sorry Chip. No Easter basket for you!
WHAT?!?!? This is ridiculous! Can a pup EVER have TOO MANY treats?!? My "system" is just fine. It doesn't need time to recover! Now make me an Easter Basket! NOW!
If you won't, I will make my own. I saw that big ol' ham that mom brought in today. I'll grow some thumbs and figure out how to open the fridge and then it's MINE!

Pups, boy has it been a week! It all started on Monday when mom told me that WE would be hosting Easter Sunday Dinner at our house! OMD! That means people in my house! I guess it's OK since it will be Nana, Papa and my aunts and uncles. Mom says to calm down about it, this is a good thing. *Allegedly* mom will be doing all of the Easter cooking and I will get to sample everything! OMD! OK, now it's OK if people come over! I get to taste deviled eggs, Easter Ham, spinach dip, meatballs, stuffed shells and MORE! WOOHOO!
My excitement was short-lived, however. Me and mom went to visit Nana and Papa on Tuesday. When we were at Nana's house, Papa gave mom an Easter Lily plant. Turns out Nana was allergic to it and it needed to go. Mom took it and put it in the car. On the way home, Nana, mom and mom's Nana all went to get their paws done at the salon. I waited in the car with the Easter Lily. Then, mom and the fam went out to eat. I waited in the car with the Easter Lily.
Wednesday, Mom and Dad had to work. They left me trapped at home with the Easter Lily.
As it turns out, I am VERY allergic to Easter Lilies! OMD! Mom came home from work and I lost my cool. I was whining and crying and needed my mom. I jumped up on her and would not leave her alone. I kept burying my face in her chest and in her belly and couldn't get close enough to her. When I finally calmed down a bit, mom grabbed my face and looked at me. My whole face was swollen! My lips were puffy, my eyes were almost swollen shut and I was all kinds of itchy. And, as stated earlier, I was a whining, crying mess.
Thankfully, mom's facebook friends recommended giving me some Benadryl, so mom did. Mom also threw the Easter Lily out the window and aired out our house. It worked a bit, but I was still a hot mess all night long. I went to the vet yesterday for a poking and the vet concurred that I had an allergic reaction. The puffiness is gone now but I still have very watery eyes and I am tired, tired, tired. I'm still on Benadryl, so maybe that's why I'm tired. It's all good, as long as I am back to 100% by cooking day tomorrow! I can't be under the weather for Easter dinner! Not with Papa coming over to give me lots and lots of people food, BOL!
Today, Mom is home with me and we are going to go Easter shopping. We are going to get lots of groceries and Easter paraphernalia. I'm hoping to lure that bunny into my house with lots of colorful eggs, candy and baskets. Then, I'm going to Ella him!

OMD pups! I am exhausted! I have had a whirlwind 24 hours and I am BEAT!
It all started yesterday when I found out that mom and dad both had the day off on a FRIDAY! I was so excited that I INSISTED that mom wake up at 6:45AM. She was not pleased. But it all worked out because she did the bills while I napped from 7am-10am. Around 10:00, mom woke me and dad up and said "Listen, it's gorgeous out. We are getting out of this house!"
So, we packed up the car and went to run some errands. We went to BJs, the cell phone store, the grocery store and more. Then, much to my surprise, we went to Wagon Hill Farm! That is my favorite place on Earth! We all went for a nice long walk in the woods and dipped our toes in the ocean. Awesome!!!!
On the way home, I took a nap in the car while mom and dad went and got some dinner. Dad said that he was in heaven because he got a nice big bowl of steamers! YUM!
When we got home, I thought that it was bed time even though it was only 4:30. Well, mom had another shocker in store for me. She packed our bags and we kissed dad goodbye and we drove down to Nana and Papa's house for a sleepover!!! We visited and Papa gave me lots of human food. We spent all day today visiting and having fun with Nana and Papa.
We are FINALLY home and I am EXHAUSTED! I'm eating my dinner now and munching on a bully stick. I can't wait to hit the sack tonight! Me, mom and dad are all going to pile into bed and watch "The Little Fockers" tonight. I can't wait! Mom and dad are going to have to turn the TV way up so they can hear Ben Stiller over my snoring, BOL!

OK pups, so this morning I was out in my back yard doing my thang when neighbor labby came bouncing on over. We said our hellos like gentlemen, because I have trained him GOOD! Then, I told him to go away, because I was busy patrolling the perimeter and that is a one dog job! But, of course, he didn't listen.
So, we patrolled together for a bit, but being still a bit of a puppy, he had no attention span. He was all "Look Chippy! A stick!" and then "OH! Look! ANOTHER stick" and "OMG!!! It's a STICK!" all the way around the yard. I put my patrol on pause and decided to pay some attention to him, hoping he would go away. He was so excited and started to bow to me. Hey, I could get used to pups bowing down to me! On your knees boy!
Mom says that he was offering to play, but I don't think so. I'm pretty sure he was bowing down to the royalty that I am.
Anywho, we were sniffing again and he was sniffing my head. Next thing I know, he shoved his tongue right down into my furry ear! I gave him a funny sideways look, but he wouldn't give up. He did it again! OMD!
Great. I'm pretty sure that we are legally married now.

I am mad at mom. We are in a fight.
Let me explain...
Mom likes coffee. OK, OK, that's an understatement. Mom LOVES coffee! Whenever we go for a car ride, mom likes to get an iced coffee. We used to always go to Dunkin Donuts. I LOVE Dunkin Donuts! When mom orders her coffee and we drive up to the window, I sit quietly in the back seat like a good boy and the lovely lady ALWAYS gives me a munchkin.
Well pups, they put in a Starbucks right up the street. Mom LOVES Starbucks and *claims* the coffee is better. However, they do NOT have MUNCHKINS! So, what do I get when we go through the drive through? NOTHING! NADA! ZILCH! ZERO! Pups, I am FORCED to bark at the drive through lady. FORCED!
I say we go back to Dunks. Mom says no, we are sticking with Starbucks because the coffee is better. I say, who cares about the coffee?!? Let's get muchkins!
Who's wrong here pups, me or mom?

OK pups, back me up here...
If you are preparing to go out for a quick potty break and you open your front door and there is a KITTEH sitting on your front door step and he tries to get in YOUR house, isn't it OK to head chomp him? Maybe just a little?
Mom says NO!
I say H#$L YES!

Pups, I have had the BEST weekend ever!
Mom and dad were home with me Friday, Saturday and Sunday! WOOHOO!!! Friday, mom and dad went shopping and bought me a new Truck! A Chevy Silverado with my very own back seat. My windows go down and I have a whole bench all to myself. I LOVE IT!
Saturday, I went to the spa and got a bath, brush and haircut. Then, me, mom and dad cuddled and watched movies all day.
Today, I found out that I am a DIARY PICK OF THE DAY!!!! And, I took my first ride in the new truck and I LOVE my seat! Me and mom went to Nana and Papa's house and had a lovely brunch.
When we came home, mom finished cleaning the house. Dad did most of the cleaning while we were gone, so we just had a little to do. Now, we are napping and getting ready for bed. It's been a great weekend pups! Glad I have the week to relax, BOL!

I am a neat dog. I don't like messes and I don't like to get messy. I am also very serious. I don't really like to play. Mom and dad have come to expect this. That's why I feel the need to catch them off guard every now and then.
Because boys just wanna have fun.
So, last night, the peeps were getting ready for bed. While mom was washing up, dad was outside enjoying his pre-bed cigarette. That's when I struck.
I got a little crazy. I went over to the recycle bin and rummaged. I found me a nice bag which formerly held some nice chocolate covered donuts. I took that bag and RIPPED it to SHREDS! Paper shreds all over the kitchen!!!! Under the table, in the recycle bin, under the rug, in my fur...EVERYWHERE!
I was standing in the kitchen watching the donut bag confetti come drifting down and mom walked in. She looked at me and I was all out of breath with the paper all over the place. I smiled my big "I'm so proud of me!" smile and mom laughed. She said "GOOD BOY Chippy!" and she picked up some shreds and threw them in the air making MORE confetti!!! WOOHOO!!!!
Me and mom BOLed and then we kissed the donut bag shreds goodbye and went to bed. In bed, mom kissed my forehead and told me I was a good boy for having fun. She said she wishes I would do things like that more often. We'll see about that. It was kind of fun....

PUPS! Tomorrow is my Gotcha Day! FIVE years with these crazy people! I'm not sure what we are going to do, but mom has the day off tomorrow and we are spending tomorrow TOGETHER!
What should we do pups? What should we do?!?
We were gonna go to the beach, but it sounds like it's going to be rainy. Maybe we will do the beach on Tuesday. But we need to form a plan for tomorrow. Hmmm.....

I went on a walk with mom today. We went to Stratham Hill Park and trudged through the snow. Mostly, the snow was nice and packed down, but a couple of times I fell in and the snow was up to my belly. We got a good workout walking in that stuff! I was definitely ready for a nap when we got home.
When we were first heading out on the trail, I smelled a wonderful smell. I looked this way and that way. I sniffed here and I sniffed there. I could not find it. That's when mom screamed "EWWWW!!! YUCK!" And there, up on the snow bank was a big ol dead skunk. YUMMY!
I tried to climb the bank to have a taste, but I was on leash and mom wouldn't let me get up there. Isn't that so mean?!? Someone had already been there because the skunk's tummy was missing and his ribs were all sticking out and there was no meat on them. But the rest of him was still in tact and would have made a delicious snack. Oh well. Maybe we'll go back tomorrow and I can eat him then.
