We had a surprise this morning! Well, mommy and daddy didn't seem to be surprised, but I was! We were getting ready fur an adventure--you know, the after-breakfast brushings, the travel bag and water bottle out of the closet--when all of a sudden there was a knock at the door. It was mommy and daddy's friend Melanie who I met last year! She was furry happy to see me and to meet Winkie, and I was FURRY happy to see her! After we said all our hello-hello-hello's we all got in the car and drove up to where the wine doggies live. Mommy sat in the back seat with me and Winkie. Whenevfur we went slow, mommy opened the window. From her lap, I was tall enough to stick my head out and let the wind blow my ears! When we got to the town, we met lots of people who fussed ovfur us, and quite a few other doggies, too! It was windy, and it even rained once, but we nevfur got wet. There was eating, and what mommy calls shopping, and then we came back home again. Melanie says she'll be back to see me next year!


It's been awhile!

Today we went on an adventure! We haven't done this in a long, long time, but today we all got up early and I saw daddy getting all our adventure gear together: his special backpack that holds my treats and traveling bowls and extra leashes and all, our water bottles, and all the stuff mommy and daddy need fur eating outside. (They call it a picnic.)

We all piled in the car, and Winkie and I had our harnesses buckled. That means it's gonna be a road trip! Today we went where mommy loves it best, up where the wine dogs live!

We drove and drove, and Winkie slept almost the whole way! I don't know how he does that. I don't even lie down in the car!

The furst place we stopped was the place where they let me sit inside! Only, today it was nice and warm, so we sat on the patio. There were lots of people there, and they all liked me and Winkie furry much! We each got big bone-cookies!!

Next we drove to "my" winery, Ravenswood, where they made me the mascot last year! We all sat outside again, so more people could come by and fuss ovfur me and Winkie. These trips are lots of fun!

Next we went into town, and daddy got all the picnic food for him and mommy. We met a JRT and two Huskies! Then we went to our picnic place that no one else knows about, and mommy and daddy ate, and Winkie and I got some more treats and sniffed around in the grass. Picnic places are full of treasures, especially dropped food from previous picnickers!! The day was warm but not too warm, and there was a nice breeze to blow in our ears. We all got furry tired and furry happy, and then we drove back home to sleep!

We went to the Wag Hotel yesfurday to play with the other doggies. Here's my report card:

"Hershey is a really cute dog. He did well in playgroups and made a good buddy in Otsu the husky mix. We look forward to seeing Hershey and Winkie again soon!"

We're going back next week!


That's more like it!

Auntie Myrna came twice this week! I can't remember if she's evfur come to walk me twice in one week, but thus week she did! AND this time mommy remembered to give her my treats!

I love walking with my Auntie Myrna, but like evfurrything else, it's different with Winkie. Now mommy comes, too. Mommy takes Winkie's leash, and Auntie Myrna takes mine, so in a way it's like it always was. Only, I have to Watch My Manners when mommy's around. I have to keep my butt on the ground when Auntie Myrna gives me a treat. And sit at intersections. Stuff like that.

We still have fun, though! I get a treat when we get to the big grassy circle, and another one fur going around once, and another fur going around twice! In fact, you nevfur know when Auntie Myrna might give you a treat. It's good to keep your eye on her, BOL!!

Walking With Winkie

Today was a sunny day, so mommy decided to take advantage of it and walk us to the doggy store! It's a long walk. I knew where we were going as soon as we went up the stairs to the big street. I try to pull mommy up those stairs all the time, BOL!!

Along the way is what mommy calls a college. There are lots of people there who spend their time dropping food around on the grass fur doggies who pass by. That's furry nice of them, but mommy wouldn't let us have any. I got a cracker when she wasn't looking, BOL!!

I knew where we were going, and I was pretty focused on getting there. But Winkie is another story. Winkie is furry good at going, but not so much on focusing. He doesn't hear much, and he doesn't see much. He's all nose, and he likes to follow his nose wherevfur it wants to go. Mommy keeps him on a short leash that's fastened around her waist. Otherwise we'd nevfur get ANYWHERE! He goes this way and that way and back again, and if we do stop to sniff, he goes around in circles! And he wants to go FAST!

I got us all to the doggy store as quick as I could, and I got pets and treats and smelled all the wonderfur stuff! Then we headed fur home. I usually take it easy on the way back, but evfurrything's different with Winkie. He doesn't know "take it easy." We went back exactly the same way we had come, but you would have thought he'd nevfur sniffed it befure. He zigged, he zagged, he went here and there and back again. He probably walked twice as much as mommy and me, and he wasn't even slowing down! Until we got home. Then he got his apple and I got my carrot and we both pretty much checked out fur the rest of the day! BOL!!


Two-walk day!

Today was going pretty much like evfurry day. We got up early, sent daddy off to work, then mommy did some laundry, and Winkie and I napped until it was time fur our brush-and-walk. The walk was fine, it's kind of cold out. Not too may other doggies around. We came back home and went back to our naps.

But then, someone knock-knock-knocked on the door! I ran up the stairs to get mommy, and down the stairs to bark, and up again and down again and then around in circles until mommy opened the door and there was Auntie Myrna! OMD! OMD!!

She came in and of course she had to pet Winkie, but as soon as she sat down I was all ovfur her lap! She and mommy talktalktalked fur a while, but then I decided it was time fur a walk! So off we went, Auntie Myrna with my leash and mommy with Winkie's. It was almost like old times! Except, Auntie Myrna didn't have any treats. What???!

I'm sure it was just an oversight. She'll be back next week.


Second childhood?

Lots of things have changed since Winkie came to our house. Fur one thing, we have a big blankie that my pal Lexi sent, and all our toys are piled on it. That will be important later, so remember.

My walks are different, because Winkie comes along. And Winkie is like a little whirlwind on a leash, darting around this way and that way and pulling and getting our leashes all crissy-crossy. When we get home he's so wound up that he heads straight fur the toys and starts squeak-squeak-squeaking whatevfur he can get his mouth around.

I like toys. That is, I like them when they're brand new. I play with them fur an hour or a day or something, and then I'm done. That's how I roll.

But Winkie, he just loves all the toys! And I have to admit, he has me re-thinking my whole toy philosophy. I remember, I used to love to squeak things, too.

So tonight it was raining. In fact it rained all day, and mommy was working and it was a furry long, boring day. When daddy finally got home he took us out one at a time, me furst, so he could dry us off easier. After me, Winkie went out, and when he got back he took a dive into the toy pile and came out with a squeakie bear. And I'm telling you, he was just having so much fun, I couldn't help myself! Befure I knew what I was doing, I was jumping all ovfur him and wagging my tail and he chased me and I chased him and we bonked and rolled and OMD it was FUN! Mommy and daddy were furry happy and kept telling me what a good boy I am! Just fur playing? Pawrents are funny!

Maybe we can do that again!

This new brofur business is a pretty good deal! Yesfurday we went on lots of adventures in the car! Furst we introduced Winkie to my vet. He got stuck some, and then I got stuck some, but it didn't hurt. Dr. R said we are both Good Boys. Winkie got a new tag fur his collar.

Next we went to the other vet. We didn't see him, we just went to the desk and daddy talktalktalked and gave them a bunch of papers. And they all said Hi Winkie, Hi Hershey!

Next we went to the Wag, and I thought we were gonna stay and I got all excited, but all that happened was daddy went to the desk and talktalktalked and filled out some papers, while Winkie and I got petted and loved on.

Next we went to the office where daddy pays our rent. We had to sit and wait, and then daddy filled out more papers and talktalktalked, and Winkie got his picture taken and got another new tag fur his collar. Now he jingles as much as I do, and he won't sneak up on mommy so much, BOL!!

After that we went to the big meadow doggie park. It was a furry warm day, and lots of doggies were there. Daddy took our leashes off and Winkie TOOK OFF! OMD that little doggie loves to run!! He followed evfurry doggie and evfurry mommy and daddy and nevfur looked back! Mommy and daddy and I had to walk and run and chase him down, and then he had to have his leash put back on! BOL!! It will have to be a lot smaller place when he goes leashless again!

Today we all went to Fort Fun! Winkie will always be on leash there, because he could disappear in...well, in a wink! BOL!! But I'm good at staying by daddy, so my leash came off and we had a furry nice walk. It was another warm day. We don't really get many of those! There were about a bazillion doggies, and Winkie wanted to sniff evfurry one of them! He's not a bit shy, that one! BOL!!

I think we'll both sleep fur about the next decade!
