Some days, I think mommy and daddy are trying to wear me down to a rug. See, the thing about my mommy and daddy is, they like to walk. I mean, they could walk to the moon and back and not even start panting. And they seem to think because I have twice as many legs, I can too!

So today when it was time for my brush-and-walk, instead of the usual tour around our neighborhood, mommy and I headed up to the big street. I know what that means: we're going to the petfood store!! I couldn't get there fast enough, and it's no short walk. I pulled and pulled on mommy all the way, BOL!! And when we got there I got a new toy and some bones! I didn't even notice how hard I had worked to get there, until...we had to go all the way back. Now mommy had to pull on me.

I barely got settled in to rest when mommy was putting the leash on and we were off again. This time we didn't go far, just to our neighborhood park. But when we got there, a whole bunch of other doggies and their people were there, and there were free treats for dogs and humans, and I had a great deal to do, meeting and greeting everyfur and making sure no treats fell on the ground unnoticed. Finally daddy met us there, and he had some human treats and we all walked home.

Now, you might think that would be that. But oh, no. After dinner (a very small dinner, I might add! Because of the extra treats, mommy said. Bad mommy!), daddy put the leash on and we went for a very long walk while he talked into the little box he always carries in his pocket. It was AFTER DINNER! We only take short walks after dinner.

I think they're trying to wear me out. Tomorrow I'm not going anywhere!

Yestfurday morning mommy changed me into my red-white-and-blue collar and leash. Here's what always happens when I wear that: we get in the car and go someplace where mommy and daddy eat outside, and I get extra treats and sometimes some of their food drops on the ground and then it's MINE. Yestfurday I got a couple of crackers. Mommy and daddy were watching a bunch of humans wearing red coats and making noise with shiny things in their mouths. After that we went walking where I sniffed a lot of trees and flowers, and then we came home. I was still tired from the day before, but every time I drifted off something would go BANG! and I had to bark. It was a long night.

Today I got to spend the day at the Wag. I was still pretty tired, but I went to two play groups. Here is my report card: "I made new friends named Coco and Sammy and Moody and Sampson. Coco, Sammy and I had a cocker spaniel love fest during playgroup. We were 'unseparatable!' I am so sweet and all of the Wag staff love me. I enjoyed my day stay!" I love the Wag people, too, but I was sure happy to see mommy and daddy when they came to get me. Boy, am I gonna sleep tonight!

 

Worth the trip!

Today started like most other days, with me waking daddy up early. That's one of my jobs. Today, though, mommy and I didn't say bye-bye daddy. Instead, all of us got in the car and went for a l-o-o-n-g ride. We didn't go to the place where we usually go, where the grapes grow. On this ride the ocean was on my mommy's side of the car instead of my daddy's, and the ride was a lot longer.

When we got there, I got to go off-leash, and there was the ocean! Now, I don't like the water and I was very careful not to get too close. Not like daddy, who got his feet all wet. Mommy and I stayed dry and just walked in the sand. Well, mommy walked. I mostly ran, back and forth between mommy and daddy. There were lots of other dogs there, and their very nice people. I remembered this place. We've been there before. The sand there is like soap powder, all soft and white. And there is a funny kind of green stuff, some kind of plant that smells like the ocean. I don't know what it is, but I peed on as much of it as I could.

We walked all the way to the end of the beach and back again. I was so tired and thirsty, even though I had drinks of water along the way. I thought we'd get in the car and go home then, but I forgot there is also a town, with places mommy and daddy like to go in and look at human stuff. Usually, that means one of them goes inside and the other waits with me outside. But in this town, I can go right in every place with them. I see why they like it! I never smelled so many different things in one day! I met a lot of dogs in the town, too. And the best place of all was full of dog toys and treats and leashes and bowls and, well, just everything! What a great place!

The drive back was also long. By the time we got home it was dark out. Daddy is already asleep on the couch, and I'm going to bed, too. Good night!

 

The Chocolate Pearl

The days I love the best are when mommy and I don't have to say "Bye-bye daddy" in the morning. This morning daddy and I got up early as usual, but after our walk around the block we curled up on the couch and pretty much stayed there. Eventually mommy got up and went out and came back again with bags of human food and some bully sticks for me. By that time daddy was ready to go out, too, so he took me to Fort Fun where I ran and played and met some very nice furs! Then we all got in the car and went to the place where sometimes daddy gets out and mommy and I come back home without him. That's when the real fun began!

You see, I've been lugging this pirate ship all over Dogster for days and days, looking for a pool to launch it in. I went to one pool party last week, but no one was there. But yesfurday my pal Mini invited me to another one, and it was today. Wowf, was it fun! When I got there I took a running jump and SPLASHED! into the pool with my ship, now christened the Chocolate Pearl, and sailed around playing pirate games with a great fur named Checkers. "Avast thar!" "Shiver me timbers!" (I'm a pretty fierce pirate!) More and more furs came, including Mini, and Daisy, and so many more I can't even name them, and we splashed and floated and ate and there was music and we just had a furrific time. Then a HUGE INTRUDER came! At first we couldn't see him, but it was an elephant! And he was trying to drink all the water out of the pool! But someone had brought giant peanuts and we used them to lure him away and I even put them in my ship's cannons and BOOM! BOOM! ran him off! I also found a treasure with my map, but I'm keeping that secret for another time.

Well, we were just playing, of course, but I really love my pirate boat that Frodo gave me and I think it's sea-worthy enough to last the whole summer! Long live the Chocolate Pearl!

 

Report Card

I got to spend the day at the Wag again today. Sometimes I get a report card; sometimes they forget. Today I got one, and it says:

"Hershey is SUCH a friendly, happy guy, and we love having him in playgroups. Today he especially liked Mia and Tony the chihuahua mixes, but he really gets along with everybody. What a good boy!"

That made mommy and daddy very happy!

Arf, am I ever tired...!

 

Before I forget...

Here's what happens: By the time mom's ready to bring me to Dogster it's already almost bedtime. I make a few visits to my groups, say woof to a few furiends, play a few games and before you know it, it's time for night-night and I haven't written in my diary. So tonight I'm starting here.

I wanted to tell you about last weekend before I forget. It started on Friday, when I got to spend the whole day at the Wag playing, while mommy and daddy went off somewhere. I have so much fun there! There are always a bunch of other dogs to play with, and humans to make sure we have fun and water and toys and stuff. I was so tired when I got home!

The next day we got in the car again, but this time I didn't get dropped off anywhere. Instead, we drove across the orange bridge and up to the place my mommy loves. (She calls it the whine country, but I don't know why because she's always happy there!) We went to to a place we've never been, with fields and trees and long trails I could run on off-leash. WhoooHoooooo!! I had so much fun!! Then we explored some other places where humans can eat and stuff, and last of all a store I could go in, where daddy bought me a cookie and a pupcake for later. By the time we got home, I was almost too tired to eat my dinner! Then I had to get a major brushing, because of the foxtails.

The next day I found myself back at the Wag. Not for an all-day play this time. Oh no, I was still much too worn out for that. This time I got my own room where I could just sleep--after the morning play group! Well, a guy can always play. But then I really crashed. I was up for the afternoon play group, though, and the weather was so nice we all got to go up on the roof! That's a special treat because the regular play groups are indoors. I like to be outside! It was almost (ALMOST!) disappointing when mommy and daddy came to get me.

That was Sunday. Yesterday I was so tired I didn't even help mommy with the laundry like I usually do, and the only walk we took was just around the block. Today I went to the groomer. Boy was I dirty! BOL!! It felt so good to get the hair out of my eyes finally. And Michelle found a foxtail mommy had missed. The bath relaxes me so much, I think I'll just sleep for the next three days! (I hear I'm going to the Wag again tomorrow...I hope I can catch up on my sleep!)

WHISKEY MADE THIS GAME UP!!! He wrote:

Mum was up late last night and was looking at my adorable pictures and suddenly she got hungry. She thinks I look like vanilla ice cream with warm caramel. She thinks I look like food! Help keep me safe from the ice cream snatcher!

What a cute game that would be!

I am going to start a new game! Here we go......

I am going to tag 10 friends and tell them what kind of ice cream I look like. Then you need to tag 10 friends and tell them what kind of ice cream you look like.

Lets see if it comes back to me! Just make a copy of this and put it in your diary so everyone knows what flavor you look like! Sprinkles count too!


I look like...kahlua or espresso ::drooling!::
