A Real Christmas for Me!

Well almost - I was totally freaked out by the sound of wrapping paper. I ran and hid. But then dad gave me some new kind of treat - ham and something. All I know it was gooooood. I stood by dad and actually made eye contact with him and got a second treat!! It was soooo yummy!!

Mom has been good about walking us every day snow or shine!! And it mostly snows here! I'm learning to like it. I get to run as fast as I can across the front yard which is like an acre wide, then I run up the mountain and chase rabbits and such! I smile the whole time.

I now sleep on the bed with Turner while dad is watching tv waiting for mom at night. Dad is really freaked (in a good way), but will just say good girl and let me be. He hasn't touched me so I'm good.

Mom was trimming Turner's nails the other day and I walked up to her and stood sideways. She gave me some gentle long strokes and I lifted a paw. She trimmed all of my nail and told me I was such a good girl. Me and Turner got treats for having our nails trimmed. :)

Now when mom heads to where our leashes are I run over and wag my tail waiting for her to put on my sweatshirt. Sometimes we don't go for walk, but mom will give me some long strokes and tell me I'm a good girl then walk away. I don't mind, because I know I get to go for walks alot.

 

Mom's not here tonight!

So mom slept in this morning and went to work this afternoon... hmmmmm... That's strange!! We all went for a great walk this morning. Mom put on my sweater and then my sweatshirt over that. It was 18 degrees!! When we got back on the property mom and dad let me and Turner run and play for about an hour!! I loved it!! I was jumping high in the air, doing playbows at mom and zoomies with Turner chasing me!! It was a blast!! I definately felt much better. Got some of that energy out!

Petey - I don't go to my grandparents too much - mom wants me to get playtime at the kennel. I just hide in my crate at my grandparents.... It's not a bad thing - I LOVE the kennel, they treat me soooo goood!! :)

So mom, dad and Turner went to grandma's and grandpa's again. This time they left me at the kennel. I had a blast!! Got to play with all the other pups!! It was fun!! Mom picked me up and it was 11 degrees outside!! What??!! I got home and me and Turner ran around in the snow for a bit. Not too long though - it was too cold!! Mom likes taking me to this kennel, I come out with a little more confidence each time! This may become a regular event! yippee!!

Mom put on our sweaters yesterday. She put a orange neck warmer on me to make me visable. See I like to disappear once in a while. Not far, just far enough that I feel safe. Well mom had on her boots and jacket and up the hill we went! Turner really wasn't in the mood to play so I popped him one with the paw to the face and it was on!! He chased me and tackled me!! What!!? I got up, laughed at him and took of into the woods. This time mom could really see me because of the orange neck warmer!! Well we ran up, down and all around for an hour!! It was 15 degrees!! And I LOVED it!! :) When we finally went back into the house I had little snowballs hanging off of my sweater.... I was panting and totally exhausted! It was sooo much fun!

 

Disappearing Act - Act 1

I came home as usual and let the dogs out to run up the hill. We've got 13 inches of snow and it is about 3 degrees with the wind chill. Winds have been up to 35 mph and the snow has drifted in some areas. Alright, so the dogs come out and Darcy runs up the hill - well more like hops since the snow is belly high!

Turner comes out and looks at Darcy like - no way! Snow's too deep. She does the playbow, sneak left, sneak right and takes off. There is a little runoff area to the left of the hill. Darcy, with Turner in chase behind her, jumps over the runoff, and literally disappears into a snowbank! Then POOF! She came popping out of the snow with that totally confused look of WHAT? on her face!! She ran up the bank, turned around and looked at me and hubby. I swear, I almost peed my pants laughing!! She has the greatest facial expressions ever! Well, her and Turner hopped some more - the snow was way too high to run in - and then headed back to the house.

I've got trails shoveled in the back yard for them for potty breaks. Darcy will raise her paws now when I put a sweater on. I love that!! If I head to wear the sweaters are she follows with a waggin tail. She's making small steps, but they are huge in my eyes!!

 

I am a deer!

Mom came home and put our sweaters on. We went outside and she was covering the tractor - it's been snowing for 3 days now! Then she came up the hill where me and Turner were sniffing around. She made a left and headed down this really flat, straight trail. Well Turner took off like a shot! So I, of course, followed! Then we went into the woods. I was jumping over down trees and clearing brush just like a deer!! It was soo much fun!! Me and Turner were running laps from the trail down the hill through the woods, up the field and back down the trail!! Boy am I getting fast on these hills!! I had a great time and was panting when we were done!! Boy did I need that exercise!! Being scare takes alot out of you!! It felt sooo good to just let it all go!! Mom says we can only do this on Sundays because of the unknown hunters in the woods. Saturday we heard 2 shots in the woods behind the house. Mom and dad still don't know who those guys are! Guess mom will post the property so we're safe! Anyway, I can't wait for the next Sunday so me and Turner can run like the wind!!

 

Slick - that's me!

So mom and dad got up for work this morning. It was early and Turner was sleeping in another room. Mom put our food out thinking that Turner would hear his bowl and come eat. Well, turns out Turner was real comfortable and didn't come out. Mom went in to take a shower and I snuck over and ate Turner's food! :) Turner finally came out to eat and his bowl was empty!! Ha!! Ha!! He had that look of "where's my food?" ha! ha!

Of course I didn't eat my own food - Turner's is much better!! So mom picked up our bowls and put them up. That's alright - I got mine!! ha! ha!!

Thanksgiving Adventures...

Sooooo, me, mom, dad and Turner took a ride over to grandma and grandpa's this weekend. it was about 3 1/2 hours of driving and we arrived. Boy are they in the woods!! Dad took my crate in the house so mom and dad could unload the truck. I'll tell you I was pretty scared. But mom had me on lead and I knew I was safe. Mom took me and Turner for a walk in this huge field outside of grandma and grandpa's house and I went potty with no problems. My nose was on overtime - all these new smells!! Got up on Wednesday and mom took me and Turner for a walk. Their driveway is so long - it's a dirt road and there are no other cars on it. It was great to walk in this new place with no cars to scare me! We saw, deer, rabbit, hawks and big fat grey squirrels.... Mom wouldn't let me off lead to chase the squirrels but it's alright. I came out of my crate all by myself and joined Turner on the bed. There is this bed on the porch that looks out onto the field. We layed there all day watching the birds and squirrels at the feeder!!

Then Wednesday late night Uncle Mark and Aunt Deb (mom's bro and SIL) came through the door. I knew Uncle Mark from when he visited us at home! Mom took us out for a walk (12:30 am) and we went back to bed. When I woke up the next day it was sleeting! Mom put on our coats and took us outside. When we got back in she put on my Anxiety Wrap - way too many people in this tiny house!! I was pretty nervous. The wrap helped sooo much! I actually layed on the bed, mom sat in front of me, while everyone was talking. I did real good!!

Everyone went out to dinner so Turner and I snoozed for a bit. Then mom and dad came back and started to load up the truck. Wahooo - heading home!! We drove back though the mountains (all covered with ICE!) and made it home after dark. Turner and I ran around the house and back yard playing for a bit!! I had so much fun....

Edit: Oh yea, grandma and grandpa we're thrilled with mom bringing me up from TX. Now that they've met me they both complimented mom for getting me here forever. They both agreed that mom did a great thing and that I'm real lucky to be here forever!

 

Life is moving forward....

So last night I was sitting on the chair and Turner was doing his staring thing at me. This drives me nuts!! Next thing I know Darcy walks up next to him. Put her head down and moved towards me sideways. This means touch time!! :) I pet her for about 20 minutes stopping once in a while and she would move in closer!! Then she went and laid down on a pillow. This is soooo huge... for her to come to me for touch is really big. When I come home she greets me at the gate with Turner - tail a waggin!! When we walked yesterday for about half of the walk her tail was all the way up and wagging. Even hubby noticed it!! He said, "Look she's smiling from behind!!"
