Seems like everyone mom and I know have allergies. Everyone is sneezing and snotting. Not much going on today at the house. Mom has been in the bed most of the day. Dad winterized the pool. I watched him do that from a far. I have been napping a lot myself.
Yesterday was a lot more fun. Mom took me to a Dogtoberfest. We drove for over an hour to get there. She had given me a bath the night before and I had on my new polka-dotted collar. It looks so good on me BOL!! Of course I had no idea where we were going. We parked under some trees and I could hear dogs barking from some where. Didn't phase me that much. We got out of the car and started walking to these buildings. Mom said they were for service dogs. The name of the place was St. Francis Service Dogs. They train them there. They were raising money for a new building. We kept walking I was of course in sniff mode. Next thing you know a Boxer dog jumped at me and started barking. Well of course me being the big chicken that I really am I put up my defenses really fast. Mom was fussing at me and telling me to stop. I didn't really want to but finally I got myself maintained. After that mom decided we wouldn't go. She took me to the car and made me stay there so she could go to the restroom. She wasn't gone long. When she came back she was sneezing and watery eyes looked like she was crying. She told me that they had put hay all over the ground for people to walk on. She said also she slipped a couple of times because she had on flip flops. We ended up leaving. Even if she would have decided to take me in she probably would have ended up on the ground BOL!! We heard on the news that they were very successful in raising money. They had over 4,000 people show up and 2,000 dogs.
On the way home we stopped at this store that has pet supplies. I got to go in there with mom. I was really good in there. I saw one little dog. I tried to put up defensives with him but lost interest really quick. I like smaller dogs better than the larger ones. I guess it's because of all the Chihuahuas I live with. Anyway, I ended up with a few treats and some chews. The chews however keep disappearing. Every time I turn around one of those little short legged Chihuahuas is heading under the bed.

It's one of those days mom gets to stay home from work. My favorite!Today has been a great day so far. Mom took me walking on the trail like she used to do when I was younger. Mom gets dizzy alot so we haven't been in forever. Well she did great today no problems we walked the whole trail and didn't have to stop and sit a few. Mom was so proud of me walking on the leash. I did perfect except when one little boy went by on a bicycle. I couldn't help but try and get his tire. Mom got really mad at me. I didn't try that anymore. Every time someone passed by and I was good I got a treat. After we finished our walk mom went to the Blockbuster video place and rented us a couple of movies. She said I could lay in the floor and chew on my bone if I didn't care to watch the movie. I'll have to see how I feel later.
Mom bought a new hummingbird feeder yesterday. She said the yellow-jackets were taking over because of the yellow color where the birds drink from. She read that on the internet. So she bought one with no yellow. Well that didn't get rid of the pest. I have been watching to see what would happen for an hour or so this afternoon. I think she wasted her money BOL!!!

Mom said Labor Day weekend started today. I don't know what that means. She said she gets 3 days off from work. Well that is something to bark about. I love it when she gets to stay home with me. Just one little thing irritates me. Mom and dad were cleaning like crazy today. Dad went to the basement and mom stayed up stairs. She put the birds outside and sprayed the birds and the cages. I stood from a far and watched. I am 2 now and I still can't stand to get wet. Every time mom came out the door I thought we were gonna play ball. She opened the door early this morning a threw 5 tennis balls at me. I thought to myself "JACKPOT". We must have won the lottery. Well nobody has threw the first ball for me. Maybe later!
I don't understand humans. My mom bought what she calls a hummingbird feeder. Well let me tell you she has the hummingbirds flying to the carport. They don't even care if I am there or not. Thoughs little guys are fast. Mom is fasinated with them. She will sit for an hour just watching them. I do get extra pets when she watching so thats a good thing. Today the yellow jackets are trying to take over the feeder. The hummingbirds wings go so fast the bees can't get close enough to sting them. I wish I could hold that fly swatter that mom has near by. I would show those bees a thing or two.
