I'm a Year Old Today -- 25-Oct-2008

Today is my first birthday. Yeah! We played around the house some this morning and then headed over to Grandma's house. She had a gift all wrapped up and ready for me. Mom had some things for me as well. Of course Pippi thought they were all for her. Mom read me the story about the Chihuahua that Grandma gave me. It's really been a nice day. Pip and I even dressed up in our Halloween dresses. Now I'm going to snuggle up next to one of the cats and take a nap.

 

New Fashion Trend -- 22-Oct-2008

Mom finally turned the heat/air over to heat yesterday morning. She didn't think it was bad but I was cold. She put a little t-shirt on me and a light jacket. Well, when she came home I had managed to get the t-shirt off and the neck opening of the jacket was around my chest! It's a jacket that slips over your head and the sides hook together. Mom really had to work hard to get it off. It seemed too tight to go down over my ribs and she didn't think it would come back over my shoulders and arms to get it over my head. She thought she was going to have to cut it. Tee hee hee. She finally got my front paws back through and slipped it over my head. She said she didn't know I had to be supervised with my clothes. She cracks me up. I was just trying to start a new fashion trend. BOL

 

Foothills Parkway -- 18-Oct-2008

We got to go up to the Foothills Parkway with Mom today. First we went and walked up to the observation tower. Mom was huffing and puffing and Pip tried to pull her up part of the hill. She would have to catch her breath which gave Pippi and me time to look around a bit. We went up to the top of the tower. It was a bit cool up there and even Pippi was glad that Mom made us were coats. It was foggy and we couldn't see much. On the way back down I barked at some nice people who were on their way up. Mom fussed at me over that. Once we got back down we took off our coats and switched to t-shirts. We headed back towards 321 and stopped to look at a few of the pull outs. When we got back we were going to walk a bit of the part that is normally closed, but we found out it was open today. Yeah! So we got to ride instead of walk the mile uphill to the first pull out. Mom put Pip's window down for a little bit. She didn't want me to get cold. She doesn't usually put the windows down! She even opened the sun roof for part of the way. Mom said it is open again tomorrow and we may go back and find a good pull out to park at and walk a bit more of it this time. So we're loving this cooler weather. Mom said we could do more walks when it cooled off. Once we got back we all parked ourselves on the wicker sofa on the sun porch. The sun started coming in and it felt so nice. We all ended up stretching out and taking a little nap. What a nice day it has been.

Tonight Grandma and Mom made Pippi and I new Howloween vest-dresses. They said the pattern was pretty easy and they would try it again. So we may get ones for various holidays. Yeah! Mom posted a couple of pictures, but she's hoping to still get a batter one.

 

Overnight Stay With Grandma -- 27-Sept-2008

Pippi and I got to stay the night at Grandma's house while Mom went to visit her grandma. Our grandma spoiled us by putting a gate up on the stairs on the deck. Then she left the door where we could go out on the deck whenever we wanted during the day. Mom got me a new t-shirt to keep me warm since Grandma's house is colder and we wouldn't get to sleep under the covers with anyone. My shirt said Anyone Seen My Pants. BOL! As much fun as I had I sure was glad to see Mom when she got back the next day and I stayed very close to her for a couple of days.

 

Smoky Mountain Critter Fest -- 21-Sept-2008

Mom took Pippi and I to the Smoky Mountain Critter fest today. I did much better than last time. I didn't hide behind Mom and tremble the whole time. I even stretched out and checked out some other dogs, I only curled my lip once when a big dog was checking me out, and I let people ... even kids ... pet me. I did tremble once when two kids were getting a little to close in my face for comfort. That was it though. Pippi, as usual, loved the whole thing. The more the merrier for her. Personally I think Mom should have entered me in the cutest pet and the fastest licker contest. For the latter Mom would have had to put peanut butter on her nose and see if I could lick it off before all the other dogs got it off their ower's nose. BOL! I love to lick Mom's face so that would have been a bonus. We didn't get to see it, but heard a little of the loudest bark or howl contest. I think I may be glad we were not too close for that one. Then again who knows. I might just have joined in. I'm glad Mom took us, but boy were we both pooped when we got home!

 

Early Morning Walk -- 20-Sept-2008

Pippi and I woke Mom up early ... because we forgot it was Saturday and that she wanted to sleep late. At least that is the story we are sticking with. Luckily she didn't mind this time and got up and got us dressed (didn't know what she was thinking). By 6:30 AM we were all walking out the door. The air was nice and cool and I was glad I had that silly bumble bee shirt on. It felt good, but not as big as it used to be. Wonder why Mom shrunk it. Mom mixed up our walk today. She went down streets we don't usually go down and took different paths in the park. She took us on a longer walk than usual, too. We ran into our neighbor dogs, then half way around the block we ran into them again. The cool morning walk was kind of nice. And getting Mom up early was fun. Tee hee hee.

 

Puppy Education Graduation -- 9-Aug-2008

I made it. I graduated from my puppy education class. We started off by playing a game where the first one says what they would do at the park, then the next one has to do that and add something, and so on, with the list getting longer and longer. I got to start and my first thing was to go and hide. (Tee hee hee) Miss Marti (the trainer) said I could pick that as mine. So all the other dogs had to hide each time it was their turn. The next dog added sit. I can do that. Then lay down was added. Once I got a blanket to lay on I could do that one. (That floor is cold there.) There were only three of us in class today so it was back to me. I added a high five. I am great at those! Then a sit up and beg was added. I had a little trouble with that. I tend to stand up and dance rather than sit and beg. The next dog was going to add a roll over. Luckily she didn't feel like doing that today after all. If she had I would have been out. I don't do roll over! Not even close! I won't even lay on my side and if Mom tries to hold me on my back in her arms I go crazy and panic!! So I was glad when that dog did sneaky, sneaky instead. With a little help from Mom to hold my butt down I did it. I added dancing in a circle. The other dogs had a little trouble with that one, but they did pretty well. We decided to end the game there. And luckily with all that sitting and laying down on each turn that counted for our test. We didn't have to go out in the store at busy spots and do that like Pip did when she was in class. Next we had to go meet three dogs and three people. We found one dog right away and it went OK. I didn't snarl. We lasted our three seconds and were on our way to find another. There just weren't any others in the store at the moment so we met the other two from class. It went OK, too. Again, no snarling or snipping at anyone. Then Mom picked me up in her arms and we went to meet three people. She cheated me on that one. The first group she walked up to had four people, and the second group had two. So I really met seven people in all. I survived though, but I'm going to have to help Mom learn how to count. Next we had to do "leave it" while walking past some treats on the floor. I don't have any trouble with that one. I'm too busy watching everything around me to notice what's been left on the floor. Then we did come when called. For that Miss Marti holds my leash while Mom runs to the other end of the aisle and then Miss Marti lets go when Mom calls me. We're supposed to sit at the end - right in front of Mom. Well, I ran to her as fast as I could - had to get back to her where I was safe - but instead of sitting right in front of her I sat under her. Safer there you know. Then we had to loose leash walk back to the training room. Piece of cake! Pippi is always telling me she is going to have to show me how to do things. Well, loose leash walking is one I will have to show her! She tends to pull a LOT. That was pretty much it. So I passed. Yeah! Now I'm off to take a nap. Class always wears me out.

 

Shorter Walk -- 3-Aug-2008

August 3rd 2008 10:18 am

We got to go for a good walk today. This time we went to the park near the house. We went to the duck pond first and Mom fed the ducks. The ducks can have that old bread. I thought the duck poo was much tastier. Mom kept trying to get me not to eat it. She stepped in some trying to keep me away from it. Tee hee hee. After we finished feeding the duck we walked back over to the main section of the park. Mom keeps our leash short when we are near the street, but once the path moves in some or we cut across the grass she lets us have all the leash we want - if no other people are dogs are around to bother. I just love that. Pip goes wild and I run circles around Mom. We had a good walk - not too far this time. Mom was still wish it were cooler weather. Maybe by then I will have her and Pip in better shape. :)

 

Long Hike 27-July-2008

We have a perfectly lovely park near the house where we can walk, but for some reason Mom decided to go somewhere else to walk today. She gathered up a ton of stuff and took it to the car. Then she took Pip and I to the car. Can you believe she didn't put us in the front seat. She put us in the back. How does she think I am going to see out from back there. I know she had a little basket fixed up for me, but I couldn't see out the front. Luckily we didn't go very far. It was a pretty place for a walk. We had to walk up hill for the first part of it. I stayed right with Mom most of the way. I usually do. Pip likes to run out in front. Sometimes I go up and walk with her, but most of the time I stay with Mom. Pip and Mom are so out of shape. They were both huffing and puffing, but not me. I didn't start to pant until we were coming back down the hill. I sure was glad Mom brought some water for all of us. Took Pip and I a bit to figure out that water bottle thing. Well, Mom ended up carrying Pip back part of the way. She did that for a bit and then put Pip down. Wasn't long before Pip decided she had had enough. She sat down and wasn't going anywhere. Well, Mom picked Pip up again. Wasn't long before I was starting to feel a little tired, too. So I told Mom. She put Pip down and we all rested for a bit. Then we walked just a bit further and there was the car again. Pip and I slept most of the way home. Once we got there Mom slept with us. Whew! That wore us all out!
