Well, you know Friday did not start out so good...I had alot of sucking up to do with dad to make up for my chasing escapade on Thursday! So both mummy and daddy went to work on Friday and I stayed in my royal x-pen. I played with my buddy and slept and was soo glad to see mummy when she came home.
We went outside and she gave me hugs and I gave her squeals and cavalier kisses all over her face. Then we played stick just for a little bit. I love stick. I just love to play stick! We came back inside the palace after we played stick. Then mommy started to run the hoover. I also just LOVE to bark and run and attack that thing! We went all over the palace and I just made sure it knew who was the boss! Then mommy took a long stick with like a soft thing at the end of the stick and a big water bowl and she took the stick and stuck it in the water bowl and was rubbing it on the kitchen floor! She called it mopping. I made sure that I let that stick know who was boss too! I was barking at it and it's funny but the floor was slippery when she got done rubbing the floor with that stick! I looked rather ungraceful sometimes, but I had fun!
I then helped mom fix the big soft blankets and pillows on the big bed that I am now sleeping on in the royal bedchamber! That was fun too!
I also got to lick mom and dad's food plates after they ate and we went for a real small ride in the mini to "pick something up". I don't know what we picked up but it was not a Rita's water ice!
I got to sleep on Friday night and mummy told me that Saturday will be an exciting day for me when she kissed me goodnight! Boy, was she right! We got up and went outside and then came back in to lay in the big soft bed for a while whilst I was being adored by mom and dad! Even Misa came to me! She must know I am IT!
Then I helped mummy clean the bathrooms and make the big soft bed. Then, we got into the mini and we all went to a place where there are a bunch of tables and chairs and they bring you food! I got a scrambled egg and also had some bits from mummy's plate. Plus, there were new people there and they were all adoring and loving me!
THEN - we went to Waggy World! I LOVE Waggy World! That is the bestest place on EARTH! I got to meet a bunch of non-cavalier dogs and run and play but then, all of a sudden, ALL my cav friends showed up! We ran and played and rolled and sat and ran forever! I got to see Francisco and Leroi! I think Leroi loves me! He sniffs me out everytime all us cavvies are together! Then I got to meet my half sister, Rosie. She is just as cute as me (of course) and her dog daddy is my daddy (Pascavale Pancho at Brookhaven) but she has a different dog mommy than I do! We took at few minutes to warm up to each other but we do LOVE each other soooo much! And we played too!
I was soooooo happy to be playing and with my cav buddies! But then we all had to go home and playtime was over! So we got home and I was all POOPED OUT! I tried to snooze a bit, but then guess who showed up whilst I was snoozing????
WILL!!!!!!! Oh boy, even though I was tired I was sure glad to see my Will! We ran all over the house and chased the felines. Will does not understand yet that we have formulated a treaty between me and the felines so I let the felines think it's all his fault! Will and I played and played and we ate our dinners and our desserts! Then we had special chew sticks that mummy gave us! YUMMMMM.
Will spent the night and on Sunday we played and ate some more and then Will had to go home! I was sad. I love Will. I wish he could always be around to play with! I suppose I will see him next weekend! Then after mum and dad ate, I got to lick plates again. It was good! I got to taste a fish thing they call halibut. I liked it! Then we went for a leash walk around the palace grounds and I got to pee on every mail box in front of the other palaces! I even am starting to lift my leg a bit, but it is still kinda hard and sometimes I fall down!
Then I FINALLY got to relax and snooze away the afternoon after my absolutely brilliant weekend! (Oh yeah and daddy LOVES ME AGAIN)

I guess I wasn't a good prince yesterday. I thought the day would be great. Mom and Dad were both home but I stayed upstairs with mummy most of the day and watched her work on the computer. I laid on the chair in the royal bedchamber with my buddy and slept and keep a side eye on the feline Misa who wanted mom's attention.
But when I had to go outside, I went downstairs to ring the bells on the door. Dad got up to let me out and he came with me, but you know, I just wanted to run and play. So I ran out of our immediate palace grounds to the other palace buildings and thier grounds. And I made a game of chase me. Dad was chasing me and I kept running back and forth, then I decided to run around our palace grounds. I think that is when Dad got mad. Well, I still wanted to play and I ended up getting all wet and muddy and daddy was really mad.
Then mummy came out and I saw her talking to dad. He was throwing his arms up in the air and I heard him tell her he was mad at HER dog and that he doesn't listen. Then I saw mummy and ran right to her. I think that made daddy even more mad.
Mummy had to put me in the sink and wash and dry me off. I was upset that dad was mad and mom was none too happy either. I ran upstairs and was hurt that my forever parents were mad at me. I just wanted to play! I immediately when back on the chair in the royal bedchamber and stayed their the entire day and did not move!
But whenever I got to go out, I got my harness and leash put on me. That is not good for me to do my business in! I like to be free to roam the grounds and the leash restricts me! I guess that was my punishment. Plus I know daddy was still mad at me and I tried to stay away from him even though I wanted to give him kisses and make up. He is a tough one to crack, all I have to do is look at mom with my eyes and she cracks!
Well I thought dad had forgiven me because I still got to sleep in the big bed, but this morning he did not take me out. Mummy did. So I guess I got some big time sucking up to do tonight to make daddy love me again!

You know, my mom stayed home all day yesterday and I thought that we would have fun. She went out for a little bit and put me in my royal x-pen and I really didn't mind it all since I was a bit sleepy after breakfast which included some more of that yogurt! I get one of the bowl on metal stick filled with it every morning! Mom told me that the vet (don't know what a vet is....but it sounds like something for me) said that should help with my stomach bacteria and my runny poop. And you know what, it kinda does work. I think that is what those white dots mom pushed down my throat did too and yogurt is much better then them dots!
So anyway, mom comes home and has a bunch of white dots too. I thought they were for me but they are for her. She has some sort of respitory thing and that is why her voice sounds funny and she wants to sleep alot. Mom slept alot yesterday and did not work on her computer like she usually does when she stays home. I stayed by mom and tried to be a good watch dog and made sure the felines did not try to sleep with her!
I also was very good (I think) when mom was sleeping. I played with my Highland Cow and of course, Buddy. Then I slept on the floor right next to mom who was sleeping on the throne in the royal bedchamber. I woke up a few times and the only bad thing I guess I did was to chew a leaf on one of mom's plants. I know I should not have but mom was asleep and I thought she would never know! But she woke up and saw the plant carnage on the floor. I guess I had a guilty look on my face too!!
We went downstairs and mom took me out and we played STICK! Gosh, I love to play stick. I wanted to bring the stick in but mom took it and put it in a special place so no one else will take the stick.
Then dad came home and he made the food! That was different. But I got to lick the plates and then dad took me for a walk. I thought I may run into that Jake that people on the palace grounds are talking about but no one came out to adore me. Dad and I even cruised to the other side of the palace grounds to see if there really is a Jake but we did not see a Jake. So, I wonder what is really up. I am prince of these palace grounds as far as the eye can see and I can walk!
And I have been sleeping in the bed soft bed with the soft blanket every night!! I love to sleep right by mom and dads head and I am really, really quiet and do not move hardly at all! I LOVE TO SLEEP NEXT TO MY MOM AND DAD! The feline Misa sleeps by mom's feet but I don't mind as long as I'm in the bed too!!
And this morning, mom and dad are both home working...so no x-pen for me! BOW WOW! I am staying with mom but I check on dad downstairs every once in a while. I have a feeling today will be a great day for me!!

It looks like we are back into the old routine of mom and dad leaving and me going into my royal x-pen to catch some z's for the day. I am glad that I have my Buddy with me during the day and also that bone rope that I like to chew on. I don't get any kibble or treats anymore. Mom said I may choke again and she would not be here to rescue me. I know those darn felines would do nothing but watch!
But I had a new taste sensation today and I LIKED IT!. Mom gave me something called yogurt and she put it on those metal things that humans use to eat their food with. This metal thing had like a bowl at the end of it, not the spikey points. Well, I had only one of them metal bowls on a stick filled with the yogurt and I really liked it! Mom said I get one "spoonful" - that thing must be called a spoonful or something - a day to help with my digestion - whatever that is. She told me it is in place of those white dots that get shoved down my throat. I don't like those dots but I like this white yogurt! YUMMMM
Daddy took me for a walk around the palace grounds where all the other palaces are and one of my subjects came out to adore me. She seemed nice and said I look alot like Jake (whoever THAT is) that lives on the "other side of the neighborhood". What is a neighborhood?? These are all my palace grounds! And this Jake - is he an imposter? Is he trying to overthrow my title as the prince of alpharetta?? What up with that?
Well, we got back to the palace and I was a bit concerned about my princely title so I went to look for mom. She was already in the royal bedchamber in the big bed with the big soft blanket. Dad said mummy has a bad cold and to make her feel better I laid next to her all night, it was a bit restless - mom was having a hard time breathing, I could hear her nose since my face was real close to it. And me, well, I tossed and turned because I was wondering who this Jake is and what his intentions are and why is he in my palace grounds??

Wow let me tell you all about my weekend...Friday night when mom came home she took me out of my royal xpen and we went outside. I thought we were going to play but after I did my business she took me back in and put me in the royal xpen.
What was up? That is not normal. Then I saw her come down the steps from the royal bedchamber area and she was carrying that pink colored ball that she puts that grey and white rodent with the long tail into to walk around the palace in. She calls that rodent Sweetie. But this time, the wet stuff was coming out of mom's eyes. I wanted to lick them away but I was in my royal xpen. She took Sweetie out and I think they went for a ride in the mini because mom had the jingly thing she uses to to put it into the round thing she puts her hands on in the mini.
She came back later without the ball and Sweetie and was still having the wet stuff come out of her eyes. She took me out of the royal x-pen and told me that Sweetie was gone and isn't in pain anymore. She said Sweetie was really old for a rat (she called her a rat so that is what Sweetie must be) and that she lived a long time. I felt sad for mummy.
Daddy came home and took Sweetie's mini-palace (it was like she had her own house in a house) and cleaned it all up so mummy would not have to. Mom went to bed early and even took me (which was a really good thing for me). I got to sleep in the big bed with the really soft blanket ALL night. I stayed right by mummy's head and made sure that if any wet stuff came out I would just lick it away!
The next morning, mom made me and dad scrambled eggs (I just love mom's scrambled eggs)! Then daddy had to leave in his car and me and mom worked around the house. I helped her put away clothes, and watched her sew. Then we played with the dot thing. That is some sort of long pencil looking thing that has a red dot coming out of it that can go out and re-appear. I like to chase the dot and so does that feline Misa! We were both playing with the dot and I had to make sure she did not attack me! Then dad came home and all of us took a ride in the mini (yeah!). I love to ride in the mini. I just love it. It's the best. We went to a dog place and I met lots of big dogs and sort of played with them. I ended up being kind of smelly after that and I was stinking up the mini on the way back to the palace
Then Steve, my human brother, came over. I love him alot! I wanted him to pet me and love me and I was following him all over. He is my big brother! We all went again in the mini (two times in ONE day) and I ended up going to the place where I get a bath. At least I stopped smelling like a wet dog.
Then, the bestest part EVER this weekend happened....WILL came over with his dad and my other human brother, Mike! WILL!! I was just so excited and so was Will! Will came to the door and I greeted him and we ran and ran and played and rolled and ran up the stairs and down the stairs and around and around the house! I missed Will! We even cornered the feline Misa and was barking her up! She was not happy but we were exerting our dominance over her and the palace! Then she hissed at us and we immediately backed off. We are a bit chicken...She is highly unpredictable.
Me and Will played like there was no tomorrow! Outside we ran circles around everyone and we were exhausted! We drank lots of water, played tug with our toys, barked and rassled all over the house until it was bed time! Sometimes, I got mad at Will because he kept taking my toys and just SOMETIMES, I don't like to share. When I got mad, Will ran to mommy and jumped on her and licked her. I immediately had to put a stop to that! That is MY mommy. I think Will knew that made me jealous. Will got to spend the night, but I got to spend ANOTHER night in the big bed. I was SOOOOOO happy!
Will and I played all day on Sunday and we had no sleep time. I think we drove mom crazy. Will and I play fought alot so people think we are mad at each other but we really are not. We love to rassle around! Then Will had to go home. I hope I get to see him again next weekend. It was way too long from the last time we got to play.
The weekend did not start out so good, but then it turned into a great playing weekend for me and Will!

Oh man yesterday was pretty uneventful until mom came home. I was happy to see mom and was squealing and jumping in my royal x-pen and wanting to give her loads of kisses and ear bites so she would not leave me again!
We went outside and of course, being the good prince I am, I did my business and ran around the yard and rolled in the grass. The grass is nice and soft now and not as hard and pointy as it used to be. I think the wet from the sky helped it alot! Then I ran into the pine straw - I helped dad put it down before they went away and left me - I like the pine straw because you know what it has in it?? LOTS OF STICKS!
I love to pick up sticks and carry them around and have mom toss them so I can run and attack them! So we played sticks and then went into the palace so mom could feed me.
I ate my gerber chicken stick first and then mom gave me kibble. But when I got to a piece of the kibble it must have went down the wrong way and all of a sudden I felt strange and was gasping for air. Mom was in the kitchen too and heard it and ran over to me. I was so scared! I just kept weezing and I got real tight in my neck. Mummy grabbed me and tried to get it out. I think she turned me upside down at one point and was hitting my shoulders. Then she tried to open my mouth and put her finger down my throat and I threw up! It was the one piece of kibble!
I was so scared and I could tell mom was upset. She tried to give me water but all I wanted was her to hold me. She held me and kept kissing me but I was still scared and would not leave her lap. We were both on the kitchen floor and even the felines had to see what was happening!
I was so lucky mom was there and not upstairs or anywhere else! Mom told me that I was choking. I don't why it happened. Maybe I was not eating my kibble right and just gobbling it down? Mom made sure I was ok though.
But I still was so scared about what happened that I ended up in the living room and I pooped. I guess the choking scared the poop out of me. Mom was not mad but I could tell she wasn't happy. Dad came home and he and mom were talking about the choking and he sat with me and wanted to know if I was okay. I gave dad some kisses to let him know I am GOOD! Then we went for a leash walk around the palace grounds and I got to smell all the grass of all the other palaces on the grounds!
Then I got to sleep in the room where the telly is and mom put the throne pillows on the floor with my blanket and I made a fort on them and fell asleep. They are the softest pillows. I have a picture of me sleeping on them in my photo page! I went to bed (my crate) and slept near mummy again! I like it when I can see her!
I am okay now. I ate my kibble this morning with no issue and mom sat right next to me the whole time!

I am sooooo lucky to have my forever parents love me like they do! And I am sooooooo glad to be back in MY palace with all MY smells and all MY toys! I am even glad, dare I say it, to see those felines!
Misa, the evil one, must have missed me too because she keeps coming up to me and wants to touch me and rub up against me. I just stand real still and side eye her because she is highly unpredictable!
I know she missed mom about as much as I did because she is vying for her attention. She is all over MY MOM. Laying in her lap, following her around, sitting on the throne next to her...Annoying but I am glad that we all are back home in the palace together!
I was so excited to be back home that I hardly ate my kibble. But I ate my gerber chicken stick and mom gave me a chicken wrapped carrot for a treat. Dad came home with these sandwiches for dinner - mummy did not cook because she said we have to go to the market to buy food. Well, I just loved the smell of the sammies and wanted them!!! Princes should not beg, but I was DYING for a piece of those sammies. I didn't get any so I ended up playing with my buddy and the Highland Cow but I kept my eye on the plates to make sure that the feline Misa didn't get any either!
Then Dad and I watched telly until we both fell asleep. Dad woke me up and we went to the royal bedchamber where I slept in my crate facing mom. Do you know what...Misa was sleeping next to my mummy! I barked at her and she didn't move. She just stared at me. So I just closed my eyes and went to sleep thankful that we are all back in the groove at the palace!

BOW WOW! It's good to be back online to all my doggie buddies! And it's GOOD TO BE BACK AT THE PALACE with my mom and dad!
I thought for sure I was given away! My royal x-pen, new bed, food, bowls, those lousy bells, and even my L-Phant and Buddy were taken to the palace next to us (along with me!)
Mom and dad talked for a while with the humans and the little human, Maddie was playing with me. They had a dog too - Rosie. I kind of liked her and she made me eat, because I was not going to let her get my food! I even barked at her when she went near my bowls. See how I can assert my authority even in sketchy situations where I am unsure what is happening? That is a true king in the making!
Well, I was soooo unhappy and panicked when mom and dad left that day! But Maddie played with me and even though I howled for my mom and dad the first few nights, they did not come back! Maddie slept next to me (I was in my crate) on a blow up mattress. I never saw one of them before! He was nice. He didnt want me to be ascared!
I also took a bunch of walks every day on that darn leash. But I started to like it - plus people were home all day. That was kinda nice, like every day is a Saturday!
I kind of thought mom and dad abandoned me. I saw the palace every day and smelled the yard but I did not see mom and dad! I was resigned to my new life as a Cinderella.......when the bell rang and in walked MOM AND DAD!
You know, I was real happy but did not want to show it too much. I wanted them to know I was none too happy with the leaving, even if it was nice staying with Maddie. We went home and I greeted the felines (who were also vying for mom's attention, especially that Misa one) with a bark and a tail wag! Then I realized......I WAS HOME - at MY palace! I ran upstairs and the big soft bed was still there. All the smells were familiar and I was just soooo happy to be back with mom and dad.
Mom gave me a present - she called it a Highland Cow - it was fuzzy and moo'ed when you bit it! He is okay and I have fun playing with him but I still love my buddy the best. I will play with Highland Cow some more so I learn how to squeak him! Mom said that we need to go bed because they were tired from traveling. They told me that they were far away in a place called Inverness and Liverpool. And daddy told me that he saw a Wigan football game. I know how much he likes Wigan - he wears their shirt every weekend. Well...alls I know is that THEY ARE BACK! I am happy!
Now, I need to find out when I get to see Will!

I just knew it! I knew something was up! I could feel it all building up and today is it!
Mom and Dad are LEAVING! They have the house all cleaned, the feline food all out and their poopy box (or should I say my hors d'ouerve plate?) cleaned out.
Plus they all got up early today. I only got a few minutes in the big soft bed with the soft blanket. I am so nervous that they are abandoning me that I am eating, ringing the bells, licking them, staying by their side and doing everything they want me too!
Plus I got a bath last night.
That was the kicker. I knew then it was a really big thing happening.
Mom and Dad said they are going on "vacation". I dont know what exactly that is but I know I am not part of it. They told me that that human and mini human that came over last week are taking care of me. They live next store to the palace and I am going to go over there to live for now. They have a dog named Rosie but I bet it's not like Willy. Me and Willy are buds and I miss him! I think I will miss the stupid felines too! But I heard mom and the human (Maureen) say that I can come home every day to poop! That is a relief. Plus, the felines will be taken care of every day too. So I guess that the palace will be guarded!
Well, I hope that mom and dad come home safe to me. I will miss them and keep my paws crossed that they will bring me back something GOOD!

I had another GRRRREAT day at the palace! Before mom and dad left in the morning like they usually do, I got to have TWO - yes, TWO! cookies!! Mom put them in my royal x-pen with my new princely bed and it was great! The only thing I was missing was my L-phant and buddy. I think mom forgot about them! I missed them during the day.
Dad came home and we went outside and I did my business, which by the way, is becoming much easier to do - I wonder if it is those crazy white little dots that mom gives me after I eat and puts them down my throat?? She and dad look at my poop and tell me what a good boy I am. Of course I am a good boy! I don't need to be told that!!!
Well, I ate my food only because it appeared that the felines were after it. I may not be hungry right away, put I am very protective of my food. They are NOT going to have any of it!
After I ate (so they would not get any) Mom gave me a special treat called a chicken wrapped carrot. UMMMMMMMM I LOVED IT! I ran into the room with the telly and the throne and did not want ANYONE to bug me whilst I munched on that goodie!
I watched and guarded mom and dad's dinner while they ate so the felines would not swoop down to eat their food either. (But I was really hoping to lick a plate...) Then mom and dad wanted to know if I wanted to go for a ride...HECK YES! I love to ride in the mini! So I jumped into the mini and off we went and I just KNEW we were going to RITA's!! Yep, we were. And we got there and my adoring public all acknowledged me plus there was another dog there called Max (he's a chow). He got a really big custard cone that his mom was holding for him. Me, I got a black cherry water ice and I actually got to taste a little bit of vanilla custard. That was a WONDERFUL TASTE SENSATION! But I think I like the water ice better!
Then we went back to the palace and I rode in the back seat and was kind of falling asleep when we got there. I had a busy day! So mom and I went to bed and this morning (FRIDAY) mom let me come into the big soft bed with the soft blanket that mom and dad sleep in. I was SOOOOOO happy to be between mom and dad! But it's back in the royal x-pen and mom and dad are off again. I wonder when mom will be home tonight and what we will do since Friday's are usually mini and Rita nights????
