Yesterday Mommy tried several times to wear my furry butt out but I had major energy. Mommy came home from lunch and we played fetch with the little squeaky Kong tennis ball I got for Christmas. When Mommy went back to work I played with my treat ball and de-stuffed a toy. As soon as Mommy got home we went for a walk…I had the zoomies. We played fetch again. Mommy said she needed some down time so she sat in her chair and I pounced on her staring & barking at the arm of her chair. You may wonder why I would do such a thing…well I know Mommy keeps my laser light in the arm of her chair and just because she wants down time does not mean I do! Mommy is well trained and she got the laser light out so I could chase it. When she stopped I pulled out most of the toys from my toy box. I took a quick nap then Mommy & I played fetch again. My secret to making Mommy stop everything she is doing and play with me is to stare at her with sad eyes, wiggle my butt and squeak my toy till she wants to pull her hair out…works every time!
Did you know that January is National Train Your Dog Month? I think every month of the year should be train your dog month. To me training means yummy treats! After I eat my breakfast & dinner, Mommy always gives me a treat for dessert, but I have to eat all my food or no dessert. Mommy has super yummy beef sticks made by Blue. She tears them into little pieces and I have to do a series of tricks to get them. I am a pro at roll over, paw, other paw, high five and speak. Mommy is going to start teaching me some new tricks so I don’t get bored with the routine. When you really think about it, it is not Mommy training me, but me training Mommy. When I am done eating I always search for Mommy and let her know it is time for her to go to the treat jar. Then I go to my spot on the kitchen rug to let her know I am ready to reward her for feeding me by doing silly tricks and acting cute. I am lucky that my Mommy is easy to train. Maybe January should be National Train Your Mommy Month.
The weather outside is frightful...and I wanna play in it! I have only had 1 walk since I got my furcut. Mommy made me wear a sweater & a coat because I am so naked I get the shivers...but the good news is I don't get covered in snowballs. I have to wear a sweater in the house. I don't mind to much but I am an difficult size. The large size sweaters are just a bit to small for me and the x-large sizes are to long and hang over my tail which drives me nuts. Mommy got some pawsome super fluffy, super warm fleece blankets from PetSmart. I like to snuggle up in a ball on them. Kira really likes them too. It is like being hugged by a cloud. Mommy got one for herself too! (If you need a new blankie run to PetSmart, their fleece blankies are clearance for $9.oo and worth every penny...mine & Mommy's has a schnauzer puppy on it and the cat's blankie has fish bones & pawprints)
Guess what? Today I am one of the Dogster Diary picks of the Day! Thanks Dogster!
I wish every pup a Happy, Healthy 2013 filled with love, belly rubs, squeaky toys & cheeseburgers!
