I got a new royal bed! Yep and I got to pick it out too. I have to get mom to take a picture of it with me in it. It is a big boy's bed for a big prince. After all I am a growing young pup! I got to ride in the mini to a new pet store place and there were all kinds of new smells and adoring public. Plus, this pet store had a COOKIE BAR! I smelled them and smelled them and wanted them sooooo bad! Mom bought alot of different kinds to see what I would like but I like them all!!! When we got into the mini (I love to ride in the mini), I kept putting my head in the bag. I wanted a cookie so bad, so mom gave me a pretzel cookie and a carob chip cookie. I LOVED THEM ALL! Then mom and dad took me to a place that looked like a palace type place you would live in but it had all kinds of food in it. They were making boxes of food for people and I watched. They called it a "food bank".
I did chew my other bed up a little bit and pulled the stuffing out. I don't think that is why I got a new one but I am glad I did! See, I can pull the zipper down on the cover and get to all the insides of my old bed and have fun pulling everything out! Not only am I regal and handsome, but I am also very SMRT, as Homer Simpson would say.
I got home and wanted another cookie but I was tired and so was mom, so we both went to bed and called it an early night. I even went right into my house which is now right by mom in her big soft bed with that big soft blanket.
Oh yeah, and I even rang those stupid door bells to go outside. Like I said, SMRT am I!

What a TERRIFIC Tuesday I had!
I woke up and mom and dad were into the going to work getting ready routine when mom decided to stay home. She was telling me she had to go to a doctor's - like the vet place I go to when I need attention (that I don't like).
Mom has something wrong with her eye. It was all swollen and itchy. So she left me in my royal x-pen for a few hours, just enough to take a short snooze. Then she was home again!
She and I stayed upstairs in the royal bedchamber all day while mom worked on the computer thing she took out of her bag she takes with her every day. I didn't care, I was with her and she was in sight of me ALL DAY!! I slept on the chair, played with my bed, chased the felines until they turned on me (how come they don't know how to A) submit to me and B) how to play like a dog?
I even rang the bells TWO times today on the door to let her know I had to go outside. She just loved that. I got alot of praise and petting.
Mom made me a special dinner of chicken and broccoli but I wasn't very hungry until dad came home. He was a little late today and I was getting nervous that he was not coming home like he did a while back when he took the big zippered bag with his clothes. But he didn't and he came home and took the plate of food mom had for him and sat in my room (I own the room with the telly in it!). Mom moved my food into the telly room and dad and I ate our dinners! Men eating food and watching telly. That is what we do!
I played some with my buddy and then went upstairs with mom to go to bed while dad was working on his computer thing that he has in his bag he takes to work.
As I was nodding off, I was still wondering what is going to happen. I see mom cleaning up everything and making notes and putting the feline's food together and my food is all packaged. It's like we are going to go somewhere and bring our food with us. I wonder if we are going in the mini??? I bark at mom for an answer but she doesn't seem to understand my highly intelligent language.

I am having a pretty good weekend so far. It seems like it is lasting longer than normal. Both mom and dad are home today. Let me tell you all what I have been doing so far...
Friday mom came home as usual and I showered her with kisses and squeals. She took me out and we played stick. I like to play stick. When I carry it around in my mouth, I look dashing and rather princely....
Well, after mom feeds me she puts me back into the royal x-pen. I am tricked! I thought it was a Friday night and it would be RITA's!! So, she leaves and then I am stuck in the x-pen with those felines staring at me, gloating that they are free to roam the palace.
Then dad comes home! I love my dad!!! He ate and watched telly with me. And then I fell asleep, but then mom came home. I got excited and kind of made pee on the carpet. Dad was not happy.
Saturday morning came and mom and dad put me in the big soft bed with them after I went outside to do my stuff (yeah, I wake them up at like 4:45am on Saturdays to do my stuff and then I know I get to go in the big soft bed for sure). We all slept until 7 am and it was really special to sleep between my mom and dad.....
I was just moseying around the palace and two people (a big person like mom and dad and a miniature one) come over. The miniature one was being called Mattie and he was playing with me and adoring me. I loved it. But something is up. Mom and Dad were talking to the human their size and showing them my food, cookies, that dreaded harness, etc. Like they were going to take care of me or something. Then they left. Something about vacation....I don't know what that is.
But my other human brother, Stephen, came over and mom and dad and I got to go to RITA's!! I had the cherry ice (I love it) and Stephen was laughing that I was so excited over Rita's water ice. He has no idea.... And whilst at Rita's MORE of my admiring public bestowed love and admiration upon me.
Well, guess who was over at the palace when we got back from Rita's......WILL!!! (and my other human brother Mick).
Will and I played and played and ran and drank water and ran and fought over toys and ate and barked at the felines and ran some more and then ran out of breath. I love playing with Will. He is my bestest pal ever. You know Will spends the night almost every weekend and I love it!
Sunday morning everyone left us (I am back in the xpen and Will is in his crate) and then we rested because boy were we TIRED PUPPIES!!
Mom and dad came home and made us breakfast and Will had a special egg like I do every Sunday. He told me that it was GRRREEAT!
Then we ran and ran inside alot because it was way too hot outside for Will. Will is a Boston and he overheats easily is what mom says. So we played inside and Will had a few accidents. I just stayed away from that poop so I would not get blamed for it since I have been doing alot better since those painter men have left the palace.
After dinner, Will and Mick had to leave. Mom was kissing Will and Mick goodbye and said see you in three weeks.... Not sure why I won't see Will for 3 weeks but that comment and the people coming over on Saturday makes me suspicious that SOMETHING is GOING ON!
Today is Labor Day and dad is laboring in the yard. I was outside alot helping him put all the pine straw in the bushes. We made the yard look real good! Then I have been helping mom put some of her clothes into a bag with a zipper and wheels on the bottom. That is strange too. I can't quiet put my paw on it, but there is something that will soon be happening....

Here it is Friday morning and I am kinda sleepy so I need to keep this short to get my princely beauty sleep..
Yesterday, Mom came home and she was soooo happy with me! All was forgiven from the poopy incident I had in the morning. I gave her a BUNCH of kisses and squealed when I saw her! AND no poop or pee in my royal x-pen! Just like old times. I had some dinner (and ate with no push from mom) and then mom spent time with me doing tricks. I was sitting and laying and relaxing and dancing and speaking for her and I would get a piece of kibble. She thought that I thought it was it a treat and she was faking me out but I knew exactly what it was! I just was happy that she was happy! Then we played with both my buddies! Wow!
I also got to go to the place where I had my puppy training last night. I got to ride in the mini and was happy. And I saw new dogs and my trainer was there and she was happy to see me too! I just love my public when they admire me!
Then we went home and I watched telly with dad. But at bedtime he put me in my house in the kitchen and I wanted to go upstairs with him to the royal bedchamber with that high bed with the soft blanket. So......I barked and barked and sometimes howled for 3 straight hours. FINALLY, mom came down at like the middle of the night and took me outside so I did my business (she did not like it when I was jumping to greet her). Then she wanted to put me back in the house....NO! I ran upstairs to see if I could get into that bed but it is too high for me. Mom brought up my house and put it next to her by the royal bed and made me go in it. She held her hand on the door of my house so I could smell and lick her hand until I got kinda groggy and fell asleep.
Then as soon as I feel asleep mom and dad were up! I got feed and taken out again and then placed in the royal x-pen. Not so bad. I was kinda tired. I can sleep now until mom comes home. But she also left me A COOKIE in the bed in the x-pen! WHOO HOO! I can't wait for mom to come home and start the weekend!

Well I think I am in the doghouse with mom and dad.
I have now successfully pooped 2x this morning...in the house. And it was a bit runny and stinky. But I did ring the bells on the door afterwards!
Dad was not happy. He was mad today. And mom was not happy either but she was nicer to me than dad. I get the silent treatment from dad. And that is the worst because I love to hang out with dad watching telly at night.
I dont know why I did this. I just did. I know they try to teach me but I just felt like it. Mom says I am "regressing". I dont know what that means but it must not be good.
I have also pooped in my royal x-pen the last two days. And yesterday, I got it all over my buddy. He's my favorite toy. Mom had to wash him real good and he was a little damp. But they also got buddy a buddy last night and brought him home. Now there are two buddies!
I figured that I better eat this morning and not make my parents any more mad at me. I will try to be good and not poop in the royal x-pen today. Keep your paws crossed. I don't like mom and dad being quiet to me!! I need love and want to give them kisses!! I try to be good for them!!

It's Wednesday morning and I am not too sleepy right now so I will write about all my happenings earlier this week!
Let's see....Sunday night there was alot of rumbling and light flashes with the wet stuff falling out of the sky. Dad put me in my house to sleep and I was scared! So then Dad came down and got me and I got to sleep in the big soft bed between mom and dad! OH JOY JOY! I was a little ascared of the noise so I stayed close to mom all night! Then, Monday morning seemed like a typical day..get up, do the business (in the wet outside), eat and go into the royal x-pen till mom comes home. Dad left a little later than usual so it was Dad that put me in the x-pen. And I did not get a treat either! Well, I was not happy about this situation. Not one bit.
Soooo - I pooped in my pen. There. I did it. It's been months since that one happened but I did it. Maybe if I got a cookie like I am used it would not come down to this.
Mom came home and boy I was glad to see her! It was starting to stink in my royal pen. I gave her a bunch of kisses and ran outside but it was kind of wet still with wet stuff still falling out of the sky. We came back into the palace and mom fed me. I ate but I was not happy about the cookie rationing that is going on in this place. Then Mom cleaned up the poop. I supervised the cleanup and ran around the stick thing with a sponge on the end of it and barked at it to make sure it cleaned it up real good!
Then it was telly time with me and dad and then off to bed....
Yesterday, same routine and it was STILL doing that wet stuff outside! I am not liking that stuff so much. It limits my activities outside and puts pressure on my to quickly do my business! Don't rush the prince of alpharetta! But the best thing was that mom stayed home! I like it when I am not in my royal x-pen! I stayed by mom all day in the royal bed chamber, except for that time when there was alot of that noise and wet stuff going on outside and there was sirens. Then mom put me in my house and got the felines and went into the bathroom. WHY??? She was talking to dad on the phone thing that rings and told us that it will be okay. It was something called a tornado warning. But mom was right! It was okay and then we all back out of the bathroom and had a great day! I wonder what the rest of the week will bring???

Wow, I had a great weekend!
It started on Friday - DAD stayed home. Those painter guys were still working in the palace and dad was busy watching them. But he made sure that I did not have to be in the royal x-pen all day and I got to stay in the room with the big wood eating table in it where dad was busy on the computer.
The only bad thing was I did not get any treats. He listened to mom and did not give me nuthin! Mom fed me the chicken stick, juice and kibble in the morning and that is all I had until she came home! And then, after all the kisses I bestowed on her, she did not immediately feed me. I don't know why! But then I understood....In came WILL!
Will, my bestest friend and buddy! I was soooo happy to see Will. And the best part is that he spent the whole weekend with me! We played together and I showed him my bone rope. We played tug of war and then we got to eat! Then we played all night until we were worn out and we both fell asleep on the throne next to dad.
Then on Saturday morning, Mom and Dad came down to take me and Will out for a bathroom break and then ---- we got to both go into the big soft bed in the royal bedchamber! Wow! We were both sooooooo happy! I got to sleep next to mom and Will went under the covers all the way down to the bottom.
We played alot again on Saturday and Sunday and I got to take Will to Waggy World. He has never been there and I had to show him all around the park! We met big dogs and puppies and I wasn't ascared of any of them! At first Will hid behind Dad but then he was okay and was playing! Then we went to RITA's! I got the Black Cherry water ice and LOVED IT (plus I was riding in the mini!). Will didn't like the Rita's ice so much so he just fell asleep in the back seat. I think I wore him out.
I miss Will during the week - he left last night to go back to his house. But I had alot of fun! I had so much fun that I even forgot about not eating and I ate lots of food like mom wants me to! Plus after Will and I ate up all our food, we each got a PEANUT BUTTER COOKIE!! UMMMMMMMM!
What a GREAT WEEKEND!

You know, I thought Wednesday was going to be a GREAT day! Even though the rooms that I play in at the palace are all dishevled and stuff is all moved around, DAD was staying home. Mom went off to work but DAD was staying home! I was sooo happy!
Before Mom left, she attempted to feed me again and I let her feed me a few pieces of that yucky canned food. She was acting kind of upset with me and I got no cookie like I usually do. Then I hear her tell Dad, no treats for Finn and she put down some crappy kibble in the room with the big eating table that Dad usually works at when he is at home.
I didnt figure too much weight would hold with that statement. I've got Dad wrapped around my paw!
Then this truck pulled up with a bunch of men in white clothes and ladders and buckets. They talked to Dad and then they were all over the house, inside and out. I barked really good to protect my palace but they did not leave until really late. Dad said they were "painting". I dont know what that is but I stayed real close to Dad all day.
And you know what, even though I was the purfect pup, Dad would not give me a single treat. I even rang those stupid bells that they put on the door today! And Dad was telling me I was such a good boy and I got ZIP. NADA. NUTHIN. What good is ringing those bells? All he does is let me out when I ring those bells. I want a COOKIE!
Then, the worst thing that has ever happened to me in recent memory happens...mom comes home and asks dad if I ate. He said nope he has eaten nothing. Then she tried to feed me. Well I am not going to eat now. I got no cookie today. I hear her talking to dad and then the next i know I am in the mini. And we went to that place where they poke you with sticks. I knew it was that place because I remember the smells.
Mom talks to a man and they take me back into the dungeon where I dont see mom and they poke me for blood, stick something you know where for a temperature and to see if I have parasites and then they take things called an xray. Mom thinks there is something wrong with me that I have not eaten in 3 days. Well the man tells her to stop all treats and all different foods and just give me something called a Gerber chicken stick with Kibble and water mixed into it.
I have never felt so VIOLATED. We went home and I immediately hid from mom. What did i do to make her mad???
Well, today is Thursday morning and she gave me that chicken and kibble stuff and I figured I better eat it without her feeding me. I did and you know, it was not that bad. I ate the whole thing and even licked the bowl. Did I get a COOKIE afterwards? NOPE. I guess I need to listen to mom now and eat what she gives me.....Oh yeah and those guys are back in the palace making all kinds of noise. Mom is home today and she is up with me and the felines in the royal bedchamber doing work!

Guess what! I got to go to dad's work yesterday! FOR THE WHOLE DAY!
I made like a big executive and slept in the big leather chair and had all my calls held. Plus I got to go supervise copies and spent time in the executive bath room. You know, it was like they knew I was royalty...and of course all the nice ladies paid hommage to me and told my dad how cute I am.
Sometimes though, I let dad be important and then I went under his desk and slept on my blankie.
I also got to ride in dad's car, and although it's nice, it ain't the mini. I love the mini and always want to go in it.
I was so excited that I did not eat either. And when I got home with dad, mom was there waiting for me. I was happy to see her and expected kisses showered on me whilst I told her of my busy day being an executive and breadwinner but she did not want to hear it. She was mad at me because I am not eating. I dont know why I dont eat, maybe I dont like to eat alone. I love to eat when Will is in the house! I tried to make it up to her this morning by eating a small amount of food out of her hand but not much. Then I heard her tell dad...no treats today. AAARGH!
And there is something going on in the house.....All the furniture is moved around and the pictures are off the wall. Plus the felines are locked up in the royal bedchamber's bathroom (like a PRISON so I dont feel too bad about that one...). Something is up....

Oh man! it was really late on Friday but I heard the noise that makes the garage door open up and DAD WAS HOME! I was sooo happy! I think mom was too!
Dad sat with me on the throne and we were watching the telly but it was really late and I was really tired, so I feel asleep straight away. But I didn't care....DAD was home!!!
Dad woke me me up at 3am and told me to go into my house (crate) and I was sooo tired that I just did without going out. Well, I needed to do my business, as they say, around 4am and started barking. Mom came down and we went outside for a bit. I was happy!!
Instead of staying downstairs mom took me upstairs, and guess what...I got to go on the big bed in the royal bedchamber in between mom and dad! It is really high up off the floor so I had to have some assistance from mom. Wow...is that bed soft. It has a blankie on it that is really soft! Plus, the feline Misa was not on the bed! I curled up between my forever parents and we slept for a few more hours. It was nice to wake up next to them!
I got to go for a ride in the mini today too! We went to a place called "dad's work" and it had a throne in his room too! I knew it was dad's room because everything smelled like dad! That was not too bad! I could snooze on this throne too! Then we went to see GRANDMA! She loves me alot. She has KC, but he is kinda old, like a grandpa dog. He liked to smell me but I was not having any of it!
Then WILL CAME OVER to the palace! We went CRAZY!!! I love Will. I tried to tell him that Misa and I have a truce but he had to find out for himself. She went after him too after his incessant barking at her. Man she is a small cat but she packs a punch!
Will and I played hard all night until Will had to go to bed. (He spent the night!)
Sunday was my playtime with other cavs but we took Will along too. He was afraid of all the other dogs and parents but I told him to join in the fun and he eventually did. Mostly he stayed by dad. Mom and dad told my human brother Mike that Will did real good on socializing with others - he really did but not at first! Me...I was all over the place! Leroi and I played alot, then I met new friends Francisco and Scotch. Will like Francisco too! After playtime, Will and I were exhausted. We fell asleep in the mini before we even left the playtime parking lot!
We came home and mom made us dinner and we each had a special doggie oreo cookie! But Will had to go home around 6pm. I will see him next weekend - I was sooo tired and exhausted from my fun filled weekend!
