Happy 3rd birthday to me!
Wow mom is so BAD about writing for me - it's been a whole year - what, does it have to be a birthday for her to update our diaries?
Anyway, I am 3 years old - where did the time go? Well, I spent it going for walks and trying to keep up with Tucker. Taking rides in the car with mom and snuggling with Molly. Sitting on mom's lap every chance I get and getting as my tummy rubs as is possible. Who wants to chase a ball or toy when you can get a nice tummy rub instead? That's my idea of a great evening - sitting on mom's arm snuggled up on her chest and getting a nice rub! Let Sparky have the spot on mom's legs and Molly can have her lap. Tucker gets warm and lays on the floor or next to us - so I get the best spot!
It's been a pretty busy year - but it's all good. Hopefully mom will update this more often for me. I'll work on that!

It's my Woofday today - I am 2 years old. Mom even took the day off from work to spend it with me - well, maybe not, but she's home today and that's always fun. No real special plans, but we'll have a special dinner today to celebrate. I am a really good girl and a real mommy's girl too. But that's OK with both of us.
Well, off to celebrate being 2 years old!

I had such a fun morning that I just had to tell you all about it - I took Tucker's favorite ball - the one he's chewed all up so it's nice and squishy and has lots of yellow fuzz to bite on hanging off of it and it's missing it's squeaker too. Anyway, I got it and then I spent all morning before mommy went to work walking all over the house with it in my little mouth! See the balls don't actually fit in my mouth very comfortably, so if the fuzzy yellow stuff is chewed off and just hanging there, then it's easier for me to bite them. I walked right in front of Tucker and then I'd lay on mommy's bed and he'd sit there and stare at me. Then I'd get up and take it into the bathroom with mommy and he still just followed me around. I finally got tired of it and left it in one of our beds so he could go and get it. I sure do have old Tucker trained, don't I? He didn't even try to take it away from me! He steals stuff from Molly all the time - like her hoof - she'll be laying there chewing on it and he just walks up and takes it. But she lets him. Not me! I'm feisty and he doesn't get away with that with me.

My first year has really gone by fast! I have grown up a lot and mommy says I am really getting a nice coat and getting prettier every single day. I love it when mommy tells me I'm pretty and brushes me. It feels so good. I give her lots of licks and kisses when she does that too.
Christmas was pretty fun - not the little people so much, I wasn't all that fond of them - but some big people came too and I did like them. I really wanted to play with my stocking, but mommy said I had to play with the toys instead. There were lots of new toys - we each got like 4 new toys - so that makes a lot of toys! My favorite was whichever toy Sparky had! He didn't think that was so much fun, but I love to play toys with Sparky. He's getting better about it though and plays tug with me. And he lets me help him bring the toys back when mommy or daddy throw them for him. He still growls and grumps at me sometimes though. I try my best not to annoy him, but I have to say, he's a little on the grouchy side.
Charlie and Nina and auntie C came to visit while mom was on vacation this last week. That was really fun. I got to play with both of them and they were pretty nice to me. I understand that I'm the baby of the group and kind of annoying to them, but they did awesome with me. I ask very politely if they want to play, and mommy says that helps a lot. We got to finally go for a walk yesterday. First day since mommy's been home that it wasn't freezing, raining or really windy. It was pretty cold, but the sun was out and I got to run and sniff and check out the neighborhood. Me and Tucker led the way with mommy and Sparky and Molly followed us with daddy. We took an extra long route and that was fine with me.
Let's see what else? I'm still a devoted mommy's girl. That probably won't change anytime soon. And I protect my status as mommy's baby too - I still haven't gotten over growling and doing the curly lip when anyone else except for Molly wants to join me on mommy's lap. She usually makes me share though. She says I am spoiled rotten and doesn't understand how that could have happened! BOL It's cause I am so cute and sweet and loving to her even if I'm not always that way to anyone else. Don't get me wrong, I am a very happy girl. Always ready to play or wrestle with Tucker or curl up with Molly for a nap. It's just if I get mommy's lap all to myself, I would prefer to keep it that way. Oh well, being the baby of the family has it's perks and problems!
Loves and kisses,

I came home a year ago tomorrow. Can you believe it's been a year already? I can't remember living anywhere else really. I sure can't imagine living anywhere else. What would I do without Molly to snuggle and nap with, Tucker to run and chase and play rough with, and Sparky to make him growl at me when I try to get him to play with me. Sparky still thinks I'm a baby and a pain in his backside. He is getting better now that I'm a year old and a little calmer! He'll let me give him a little kiss now and then. And when Sparky plays fetch, I go and help him bring back the toy. And then we play tug with it. So he's getting used to me! Tucker is my favorite to play with though - we make lots of noise and it gets mommy a little upset with us sometimes, but we have a ton of fun! Molly is my sister and I love her the very best. We nap together and play together too. We almost always share mommy's lap during the evening when we watch TV. We can get a little grumpy with each other, but we really do love each other lots!
I know that my diary is the last one to get an update today, so everyone else has already talked about Thanksgiving and the kids who came to visit. They were OK really. I hung out on mommy's lap and they didn't bother me at all. Actually mommy told them I have a bad temper and I might bite them. And they left me alone! Not a bad deal at all - and she's right - I have a very bad temper. And sometimes I bite mommy. I always feel bad about that afterwards and give her lots of kisses. I am doing better about anger management now - mostly I'll stop if mommy tells me to "stop" and I hardly ever bite now. But it worked out OK telling the kids that I might - and I might have too - cause they were very noisy and wanted to pat my head. I don't much care for that!
OK, I think that catches things up! Christmas comes next and I really can't wait for that! I was pretty little last year, but I definitely remember that there were new toys. I love new toys!
Until next time,

Happy First Birthday, my sweet little Katie!
Your first year of life has just flown by. Hard to believe that it was only a year ago that I was waiting on pins and needles to hear if Fancy had a little girl that would be mine! You were such a tiny little puppy, and so very cute from the first picture. I was so lucky to be able to meet you and hold you on your 4th day of life. Your mom, Fancy, was right there to make sure you were fine of course. Thank goodness she knows me and trusts me with her babies. And I got to watch you grow and get to ready to join our little family. The first time you met Tucker you bit his tail and hung on! Little did I know how much that showed about your personality. You are a very outgoing and confident little lady! Which is a good thing considering your came into a house with three older and two larger dogs - to say nothing of our foster puppy, Sammy, who arrived only a few weeks after you came home. You can really hold your own! My dream was that you and Molly would be pals and that has come true. The first time I watched you climb into Molly's bed and curl up with her for a nap, my heart nearly burst with happiness. You and Molly have a lot of fun together and it's been like watching my dream come true. You are truly sisters - you play and you argue!
Enough with the sappy memories! You are growing up to be a very beautiful little girl and I have treasured each moment of your young life. I hope that we will celebrate many more birthdays together, Katie Bug. I love you!

I got to go for a ride yesterday morning with my mommy. I thought that was pretty cool, but then we got to Dr. B's office and she left me in a little cage! That was not cool at all, but I was a brave girl and didn't even whimper (at least not that mommy heard). Then they did the spay operation on me. When I woke up my tummy was sore and so was my mouth a little bit cause I still had two baby teeth that had to be pulled. And I had really, really clean ears. I had to stay there all day so they could watch me and make sure everything was OK. But mommy came and got me late in the afternoon. I was very happy to see her - I gave her little kisses. Then we went home and she put me in the x-pen. That was OK cause I was sore and grumpy with the other dogs - I growled if they tried to get too close. I wouldn't eat any dinner but I did drink water. Mom tried to make me eat some Nutrical, but I didn't want to. She put some on my mouth and that meant I had to lick it off. So that made her happy and sticky! HA HA I had to sleep in my little soft crate in bed but I was really good about that too. Mommy let me out early this morning and cuddled me under the covers cause I was a little shivery and cold in my crate. I went outside and did a potty too - finally - mommy was starting to worry about that one. I just didn't want to use the potty pad for some reason. Still haven't done a poopy, but that will come - I haven't eaten very much for the last couple days so that makes sense. I am still sore today and am spending most of my time in my bed. Mommy covered me up with a little blankey and I am warm and cozy. She took down the x-pen cause I am being so good and not overdoing it. Thank goodness - I don't like being in there very much. Sparky seemed to enjoy it though! BOL And I'll get to snuggle with mommy in bed tonight too - she put the crate away too. I'm sure that I'll feel much better tomorrow. The best part is mommy stayed home with me today and she'll be home all weekend too. Lots of cuddles and spoiling for me! I like that! All in all, it wasn't horrible, but I am very glad I don't ever have to do that again. So is mommy.

Wow my first summer is almost over - already! It went by so fast. I really need to catch my diary up - a lot has happened since I wrote last.
My Mom, Fancy, came to stay with us again - this time for 2 whole weeks. We really love it when she comes to visit us. She is such a sweet girl and she fits right in with us. She likes to bark with the boys and play with her girls (me and Molly!) Mommy and daddy love her too. But she had to go back home - we were sad to see her leave.
We've had lots of play days this summer and I love them! I am a very friendly puppy and I like all of our friends. We get to go to other peoples houses and sniff their stuff and then they come to our house and they sniff our stuff. It works out great. We also got our very own pool! I love that pool. I think it's my outdoor water dish. I perch on the edge of it and take a drink. Then I have to hop in there to get back out. It's not very big and mommy doesn't put much water in there, but I think it's awesome. Of course mommy took pictures of me doing that - she calls it my "kitty" pose! Let's see - we took a lot of walks until there were so many dogs loose in our neighborhood that we had to stop. They would run at us and scare us really bad. Mommy says that they are supposed to be on leashes or behind their fences or in their houses - just like we have to be. But they aren't so we are the ones that don't get to go out for walks. What a bummer! Hardly seems fair. So we took some in the early morning before anyone else was out, but that only works on the weekends or if mommy has a day off work. Otherwise it's still dark outside and that's not fun at all.
It's only about six weeks until my first birthday! I am going to visit Dr. B on Sept. 11 and get spayed. I'm not really sure what that means or if I'll like it very much, but mommy says as much as it scares her to have me operated on (YIKES!) it really is the best thing to do. I'm pretty sure that mommy will let all my Dogster friends know when this is going to take place cause she'll want them all to send up good positive thoughts and prayers for me that day. Anyway - back to the birthday - I'm going to be one year soon. I bet I'll get some presents and yummy treats! I am excited about it, mommy says she's not - she'd keep me a puppy forever! NO WAY mommy!
We all have pretty collars now too - mommy is making them for us. Some of our friends mom's have bought them for their doggies too. So there's a bunch of us Oregon doggies with handmade collars. They are really nice and soft and light weight. Not the kind of collar that the big dogs wear with a leash - but we don't wear leashes on our collars - only on harnesses - so they are more just neck jewelry! She is also making us collar charms, so we are really stylin'! BOL
Well, I guess that just about catches things up. I'll try and get mommy to write for me more often. She gets busy and I understand that, but my life is very interesting and I just know more pups want to know what's happening!

We went to visit Auntie Melody and Fancy (our mother) and Sylvie and Latte on Saturday and guess what? Fancy and Sylvie got in the car and came home with us. And they stayed for three nights! They just went home yesterday. It was pretty fun mostly. I did get in my bratty mode a little bit - well quite a bit - but only when Sylvie tried to get too close to me or mom. I am a mommy's girl really bad and I don't like it if someone tries to get to mom when she's mine. That applies to Tucker, Molly and Sparky too. But I guess I should be nicer to company, right? I did try the brat act with Fancy (my mother) but she wasn't taking any of that! So I backed off and was way nicer to her after that. I could tell she didn't think I was being a nice girl at all. Anyway, it was a lot of fun really. Sylvie like to play chase with me and Tucker and she can run really fast. Molly played chase with us too. And even Sparky played with Sylvie a little bit. I have to admit she is a very pretty little Chi! And the best part - not one of them tried to take my spot next to mom on the bed! Everyone found a spot they liked and slept peacefully all night long. Mom was very happy about that! I did kind of miss Fancy and Sylvie last night. I was just getting used to them being in my house and then they went home with their mom. But I think their mom missed them, so it's good that they went back to their house. Maybe I'll get to go stay with Auntie Melody and Fancy and Sylvie some day! That might be fun!

Wow I had no idea how hot summer is! Since this is my very first summer, I wasn't sure what to expect. First it was so cold and there was rain and snow out there. Then it got a little warmer, but there was still rain. The rain finally stopped and it was so great outside. But for the past few days, it's so hot that I pant just walking across the yard! Mommy says to drink a lot of water and she sure didn't have to tell me that twice! It sure tastes good on a hot day. I still snuggle up with mommy at night though even if it's kind of warm. That's my place to sleep and I wouldn't want any other spot on the bed!
You know something else? There was a lady and man that came to visit us a lot this weekend. Daddy said it was his daughter and son-in-law whatever that is. Anyway, they thought I was SO cute and the lady said she wanted to take me home with her! Mommy said sorry Katie is home. Boy was I relieved to hear that! I really didn't want to get on an airplane and leave mommy to live with those people. They were very, very nice, but I love my mommy and I would miss Molly and Tucker and Sparky too much. But I did like the pets and belly rubs and compliments!
Mommy gave me something new to try this weekend. It's called a strawberry. She thought that I would like it, but I didn't. Molly didn't like hers either and neither did the boys. But I did like to lick mommy's plate after she ate those berry things. And the whipped cream - now that was yummy! She gave us all a little taste off her finger and we all loved it a lot. I sure would have liked to have had a LOT of that! I got some on the tip of my nose and mommy said I had a whipped cream nose and I looked so cute!
