Inspired by Bailey

Today my mom read Bailey's diary. She decided I needed one too. It is June 6, 2007 and I am 4 months and one week old. I am growing so fast. I love to play with my Lacey. Lacey is my older dog and so she just stands there and play growls at me. I love to run around the dining room table or the coffee table and come back and jump at my Lacey. She growls again and off I go. Sometimes I jump on the couch (that's a NO) and then leap to my mom's chair (another no, but I've taken over it anyway), then one leap off the chair and I'm back at Lacey. ..the adventure continues until I need a drink. I sometimes bite at my Lacey's tail, she doesn't like that and mean barks at me. I back off for a second, wag my tail and I'm right back at it.
Yesterday, I got a new pool. I wasn't sure what I was suppose to do with it. You can see in my pictures, I just stood there. My mom accidently let go of my leash and I was off. I ran around the yard and splashed into my pool. I had a great time and my mom is about to let me go back and play again. I'm off to play! Bye

 

Free Run

Today my mom and dad took me outside to my pool. They took off my leash and let me run in the yard too. I didn't realize at first that I could go very far, but when I caught on...I was off. I leaped into the grass and jumped into the leaves in my back yard and then I found the biggest sticks ever! I love sticks. I'd rather have a stick then an expensive toy. (I think that's cause I played with them a lot when I was a baby and just lived with my biological mom and sister. ) Then, I started digging in the humas. I practice digging in my chair , okay(mom's chair), but I can dig really good outside. I had dirt flying EVERYWHERE. Now picture this, I had been in my pool, I was wet and I got in the leaves and then stated digging....oh did I look good! Yep, had to have a bath after that. But I love baths too! It was a great day, pool, running, sticks, digging and a bath. I pooped now. Gotta go, love Annie

 

Sticks for scents

Today, I got to go outside and play. I ran and ran and jumped in the big pile of leaves. They can't be burned right now cause we have a no burn warning in Georgia since we have a dangerous drought. Anyway, my dad threw sticks for me and held on to me until the stick landed and then let me go. I had to go retrieve the stick. Sometimes I could not see it and had to sniff it out with my nose, like Hendrix. I didn't do too good at first, but my dad encouraged me and helped me a little and I got better and better, I got real excited when I found it myself too. Also, my mom signed me up for puppy school. I'm a little nervous about that. What if the teacher is mean or somebody pulls my hair? What if Ihave to sit in a desk all day long, my mom says her students do. She's making me go to school cause I've been naughty, she says I'm a demon dog and my Darren called me a terror. So mom is taking me for help. Hope it is fun. Mom also got me a treat ball casue she thinks another problem with me is that i'm board and need mental stimulation. So this ball has treats inside (Cheerios) and i just play and work my little self to exhaustion to get those things out. Mom has been smiling more since I figured out how to use the new toy treat ball. It s great, I'm much happier and my family is much happier too! I'm so glad I could help out. Nite, nite, it's beddy by time. Love,Annie

Oh my gosh...mom got me the coolest toy ever. It's a Kong ball. She puts really cool treats in it and I have to play with it and work it to get the treats!!!!
I love it, I love it, I LOVE IT!!!!!! Oh yeah, I'm learning to kiss instead of bite. I love kissing almost as much a chewing on peoples hands. Love and kisses mommy! Annie

 

First Day of School

I went to school last night!!!! It was great, except for the ride down. I live about 40 minutes away from Pet Smart. So my mommy, thinking I would be more alert if I was not hungry fed me about an hour before we left. Just as she drove into the parking lot, I threw up my dinner, all of it on the floor of the back seat. Mommy said it was ok, she had towels and cleaned it all up and me too. I felt much better after that!!!! We went inside and I made lots of new friends. My best new friend is Maxi. She is a little black lab. She sat next to me and I shared my treats with her because she did not have any. I got bored about half way through the class, I wanted to look outside the classroom at the other things so I kept poking my head out and I saw a dog that looked a lot like me. He was pretty and I loved the treats I got for doing stuff I already knew like sit and my name. Mommy got a clicker and everytime she clicked it, no matter what I was doing, I got a treat. She'd say, "Annie" and I'd look at her and bingo a treat. The ride home was fine. Tomorrow is Surgery. Wonder what that is. Mommy keeps loving me and saying "poor Annie". I thought I was rich, I got lots of treats. Oh well, bye for now, Annie

What no breakfast? What is up with that? I love breakfast? What do you mean I have to stay in your room with the door closed while you eat breakfast? What is that all about? I'm going to see Dr. Fran!!!! Yea, I love Dr. Fran. Ok, now what is up? I'm sleepy. I don't remember much, mom, I gotta go...now outside. That's better. I have this pink thing on my leg, my leg hurts, I gotta get this off, maybe I'll sleep instead. Where did Dr. Fran go? I guess I'll just sleep this off. What do you mean I look like a Saint Bernard in the eyes. I love you tooooo, yawn, lick, nite, nite. See you tomorrow.......snore

 

School Week 2

Mom...me...got...in...trou...ble.....ha, ha, ha, ha, ha,ha! Yep, my mom, the school teacher got in trouble at puppy school. It was great! Yep, she was suppose to be hand feeding me one meal a day. She did it once and decided that I was not going to growl or bite her EVER, so she didn't do it again. In circle time tonight, the teacher asked mommy how did it go for you? Mommy said, " well to be honest, I only did it once because ...." The teacher stopped the whole class and said, "let me just explain to all of you that dogs mature and when they do, they will be protective of their food or bones or toys, and they will growl or bite....then she went off on some disortation about knowing that some of them (humans) were mother ducks and that the puppy follows them around from room to room and they use cute eyes...this lady went on for forever. Amazingly, after my mom's answer, everyone else said their stuff went great, NO PROBLEMS!!!! Mommy said next week, it would not matter what happened, EVERYTHING with us will be great! Mommy was embarassed. My aunt went and watched, she said that I'm ADHD. All the other cute "little" doggies were sitting and being good, not me, I was belly crawling on the floor, sticking my head out the gate, trying to get everyone's treats. Mommy said I frustrate her. She said she's raised to great daughters and can manage hundreds of kids at one time at school, but she can't manage her Golden Retriever Puppy. Poor mommy. We were both worn out after school. I hope she doesn't get to upset and go back to her school early. I hope I won't flunk out of puppy school. I'm smarter than a 5th grader and Mommy teaches 6th grade, so surly she can help me pass. I'll try to be good mommy, love Annie

 

No Puppy Left Behind!!!

After attending my second day of puppy school, I was afraid I might flunk out. So mommy shared what happened at school on Dogster. Calli's mommy asked if Georgia didn't have a "No Puppy Left Behind Act". My mommy just was not thinking. Indeed there is!!!! So mommy said she was going to "modify" my training. First, I get to have shorter work out periods. Then, if I need to, I can take a break. I do not have to do things as many times as the other dogs in the class. I get extra rewards and lots of encouragement. If I want to leave early I can. Bottom line it is the teacher's responsibility to meet my needs and to write a an extensive modification plan that will ensure my success. I don't have to worry, I can't fail or be left behind. Thank you Mr. President for creating such a program so that even a dog won't be left behind and Calli for pointing it out. My mommy should have known better. Now I can go back to chewing my Kong and doing whatever I want. I'm not worried anymore!

 

Free of all stitches

Today must have been bring your Golden Retriever to the vet day. There were four there not counting me. It was pretty neat. I love looking in the mirror, so I know what I look like. I kept looking at the other Goldens. They looked a lot like me. Mommy said I had a perplexed look on my face. I kept staring at them. Then the big one, Duke, wanted to smell me. I wasn't sure about that; I ever so slightly tucked my tail and backed up to mommy, Duke kept coming. Mommy said," It's alright Annie he just wants to check you out". I wanted to tell her to lets start with her. Do you think she likes someone sticking their nose up her....never mind. I didn't like that Duke bothering me and I sat down real close to mommy. He was a big boy, come to think of it he was kinda cute. Oh well, I got called into the exam room and the technician and mommy put me up on the big table. That lady just grabbed my foot and started pushing on it, I whinned, so what does she do? She goes and gets this BIG man who comes in and starts using the lovey dovey voice, "Oh you're so cute Annie, such a good girl Annie..." you know the tone. When they start that it's never good. However, mommy had treats, she's so smart. So while this guy loved on me mommy gave me treats, and I while I ate a lot of treats, this lady was messing with my foot. I start to pull it away, but then mommy was showing me the treats and I was eating, next thing I knew, she was rolling me over on my side and looking at my tummy, mommy's still giving me treats, and then everything stopped. I was on the floor and I just shook, wow... NO STITCHES any more. Mommy said now that my stitches are out, I can practice retrieving the stick in the woods, I can play in my pool and get a bath, and Adam is going to take me to the Shoals. You can see pictures of the Shoals on my website. It is the most awesome place to play. There are rocks and waterfalls, and water to swim in. It's great. Well, gotta go. Mommy said we have to have a training session, so that
I won't flunk out of puppy school. Bye, love, Annie

 

Suprises for my mommy!!!

I have been a very busy girl (even with mommy being sick)! I've been going to puppy school and have mastered many good commands. "Leave IT" is what we are working on this week, here's why mommy can't wait for me to learn it! Bob our (yellow bobtailed cat) leaves presents for mommy! The other morning mommy was taking me out for my walk. She opened the door and I scarfed up something quickly. Mommy didn't have time to know what cause I'M FAST! I went into my lock down routine! Mommy finally got my mouth open and reached into my mouth (throat) to get Bob's surprise out! (You'd think she'd know better by now not to just reach in my mouth, I've had many wonderful tasty things in there.) Anyway, she got it and shreeked!!!! It was a MOUSE HEAD!!!! Slimey and complete with a pointed extension bone (which would have lead to the spinal cord). Mommy threw it ! I keep checking where it was every time we go out, but it isn't there. Hmmmmm !!!! Today, was a great day too! Mommy took me for my same morning walk and as we were going down the driveway, yep, I scarfed something up very quickly again. You know the story, lock down, open mouth, but mommy is getting smarter (must be puppy school helping her out), she did not reach in my mouth this time. She looked and screamed!!!!!! It was a WIGGLING FROG which jumped out. Mommy made me come inside until the frog was gone. She said something about it being like raising BOYS!!!! Mommy has only girls at our house (except for Bob and daddy). I guess I'm a Tom Boy. I hope she doesn't change my name! She said she can't wait until I learn "Leave It", but I think she is going to have to get faster or pay more attention to what I'm doing, cause as I said, I'm FAST!!!! Lots of licks and surprises!!!!!, Annie
