Swimming with grandma:)

July 22nd 2013 7:59 am

Friday night grandma came over for dinner and then we went swimming! It was a lot of fun and the first time grandma has swam with us too! She threw the toys for us and I floated with her too. I hope she comes to swim with us again! Oh yeah, I almost forgot to tell you... I almost drowned mom. She was in the deep end telling me to "go board" which is my cue to jump off the diving board. Usually I'll stand on it at the end and wait until mom moves out of the way, but this time I was just so excited I forgot to wait and I jumped right on top of mom pushing her under the water. I felt sooooo bad, but mom wasn't mad cause she knew it was an accident.

Saturday we didn't do much. It was so hot again so mom and dad just chilled inside and we did the same. Mom hurt her back though and doing something as little as picking up an empty cardboard box. Poor mom was really hurting.

Sunday mom was still hurting from her back so we just hung out with her in the house. She did take us out a little and sat on a chair while we swam. I really wanted mom to come in with us, but she said she just wasn't up to it. After we were done swimming, mom laid in bed to watch TV and I laid with her and we took a little nap.

Other than grandma coming to swimmy on Friday we didn't do much. The temps are starting to drop a little, but I don't think we'll be doing anything until mom's back feels better. I'm putting my paws together and praying that she gets better soon so she's not hurting.

 

A few things happening

I had a few things going on the last couple of days I thought I would share with you all. As you know we're in the middle of a heat wave so that means we stay inside a lot, but mom still makes sure we have things to do. Monday evening Anna, her sister and another girl came over and went swimming with us. It was SOOOO much fun! I really enjoyed that a lot and hope they come swim with us again soon:)

Last night I had my visit at Manor Care. Everyone seemed to be in a pretty good mood and was very happy to see me. I met a couple new friends which was nice and got caught up with some old friends. Joe was in the best mood I've seen him in a while which I was glad for. His wife is doing much better and if back down in her own room on the 1st floor so I'm sure that was part of his happiness.

I don't have anything else going on this week and I don't think we're going to the mountains this weekend. Mom and dad were thinking about it, but with the heat wave and dad working late Friday, I don't think we're going.

Rest assured that if anything new and exciting happens, I'll be sure to let you all know. Stay cooL!

 

Burning like a heatwave...

Yep,just like the song lyrics say, it's burning like a heatwave around here. Mom said it's not stopping anytime soon either. That means the only thing we'll be doing outside is potty and swimming. Yeah, I love swimming!! Speaking of swimming, that is about all I did this past weekend. Grandma did come for a little visit Friday night and it was nice to see her. Saturday mom took Echo to search training and then went to Nanny Waple's house cause Ali and Emilie were up. Mom stayed there until about 7pm and when she came home she took us swimming and that was fun:)

Yesterday mom cleaned the house and mom said we were such good dogs staying out of the way that she let us swim again and it was for a pretty long time too. Mom did make us stop though when I started having problem breathing. It is cause when I jump in the pool I get all the water up my nose since I "dive" instead of keeping my head up. I didn't mind getting out though cause we did swim for a long time. Don't worry, I'm okay:)

I think all I'll be doing this week is swimming cause it is suppose to be in the mid-upper 90's all week...YIKES! That is definitely A/C and swimmy weather! But if I do anything exciting, I'll be sure to post. Have a great week and stay cool if you're in the heatwave too!

 

My peace and quiet is over:(

So mom has allowed Echo to be out of her crate all day while her and dad are at work all day...really mom?! That is the only peace and quiet I had and now you took that away, that's not nice. But I will say that so far Echo has pretty much stayed upstairs and sleeps in her crate even though she doesn't have too. We did play a little, but for the most part, I sleep downstairs and she sleeps upstairs so I guess it's not that bad. I just hope if she does destroy something I don't get blamed for it!

It's been pretty boring since we've been home, but then again, it's been so hot it's really hard for us to do anything cause of the heat. We did hang with dad Monday while he washed his truck and mom took us for a short walk yesterday, but other than that, we've just been hanging in the A/C. I like summer cause I can swimmy, but the heat is killer. Fall is my favorite time of year and I can't wait til it gets here!

 

Happy Birthday Echo!!

I just want to wish my sissy Echo a Happy Birthday! She turns 3 today and although there may be times I act like I don't want her around, I would be lost without her. I'll do my best to make this a good birthday for her.

Unfortunately today we have to go home and our vacation is over. The last two days we didn't do much cause it was so hot. And because it didn't rain much, the swimmy hole went low and we couldn't swim:( so we hung out in the AC until the evening then we did go for some Kubota rides and helped mom pick berries. Our friends Pam and Dave came over Friday night and Pam loves us dogs and we love the extra attention:)

I'm sad my vacation is over but I did have a great time! It's back to the routine at home, but at least we have a nice pool to cool off in when the weather is hot!

Happy Birthday again to Echo!

 

Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July to everyone! Thank ounto all who fought for our freedom and to those who continue to fight so we can be free forever. I hope all my pals are having a safe and fun day. I had a good time cause I was in a parade. Yep, you heard me right, I rode in the Kubota with mom and Echo in the back and dad drove and mom held the Christian flag. It was neat to be in a parade like that cause the last one I was I I had to walk. It was a good thing we were riding cause it was HOT! Mom kept us in the shade to we started and had water for us on the entire ride. It wasn't a real long parade so I survived. Mom rewarded us with a trip to the swimmy hole afterwards cause we were so good in the parade. They even shot off guns and it didn't phase us. Guess we're use to that cause mom and dad shoot all the time. Now I'm getting ready to nap cause I've had a long day.

I forgot to tell about what we did yesterday. First we went for a ride to try to find this guy who makes leather boots for dogs to protect their feet when they're in rough terrain. Mom wants a pair for sissy but said she'll probably get me a pair too. Unfortunately we didn't find the guy. After that we helped mom and dad clean the sheds. They dad went with Randy somewhere and we went for a kubota ride with mom to the tree. After that mom burned trash and picked berries. She got a lot of berries and I just laid and watched trying to relax but sissy kept bothering me. Sisters, can't live with cant live without them:)

 

A tubing we did go

Yesterday was a really fun day cause we went tubing! We went for over an hour and it was lots of fun. We had to wear our life vests and even though I'm a good swimmer I'm glad mom made me where it cause there we some spots that moved slow and were deep so I had to Sam for a long time and when I got tired I'd just float. Mom did put me in the tube with her a few times to give me a break from swimming and from walking on those rocks. That is the only thing I didn't like about tubing, when the water was shallow we had to walk and let me tell you that is hard on my feet! But mom let me hang with her in the tube so it wasn't too bad and I can hand some sore feet for a little for all the fun I had tubing:)

Today mom and dad went away with Clair and Velma for a bit and when they got back mom took us for a Kubota ride. We actually rode the entire time cause it was hot. We stopped and got water a their house then mom took us to the swimmy hole again. It was just as much fun as the other day, but we couldn't stay as long cause it was looking like storms coming. In fact, I could feel they were coming and stood right next to mom for a while wining trying to let her know we needed to go. It took her a coup,e minutes, but she figured it out and we headed back to the cabin. So far no storm but it sure does feel like one is coming.

So as I can see I'm still having fun and we still have lots of vacation left. I hope everyone out there is having as much fun as I am:)

 

Hot in the mountains!

July 1st 2013 11:15 am

As I thought we came up to the mountains Friday afternoon and let me tell you it has been HOT and HUMID every day! We spend a lot of time in the AC of the cabin which I don't mind, but we did get to do some fun stuff so far. Saturday we went for a Kubota ride and helped mom pick wild raspberries. Later in the day we went for a ride and us dogs got a nice surprise, we went to the covered bridge and went swimming! Because its been raining so much the water was muddy and moved faster than usual, but I didn't care it was muddy and I'm a good swimmer, plus I could touch the bottom so I didn't mind the fast water. It was lots of fun:)

Yesterday I kind of got in trouble. Mom and dad were going away for a few hours but we couldn't cause we would have to wait in the car and mom would never do that cause of this heat. So mom set up echo's crate for her and put her treats in it. Well this is where I messed up. I went in E ho's carte and ate her treats before mom put her in. I did it when mom was in the back but just as I ate the last one dad caught me. I got in lots of trouble. But wait, it gets better. So mom comes out, puts more treats in the crate and sits on the sofa waiting for dad. Right in front of mom I went in the crate and ate the treats again. MOM WAS MAD!!! She yelled like. Haven't heard her for a long time. I hid behind the table cause I don't like getting in trouble. So now it's time to leave and mom puts the treats in the crate and goes to let Echo in from outside. When mom turned her back guess what I did? Yep I ate the treats again. Don't ask me why cause I don't know, but I can tell you that mom was SOOOOO mad that she drug me and out me in the crate and I had to stay in there for hours while mom and dad were gone and Exho got to stay out. I was not happy about it but I know I deserved it. When hey finally got home mom didn't yell anymore and and was happy about that. I will think twice about eating Echo's treats...I hope!

Later n the evening mom, Exho and I went to this grea swimm hole down the road. It's nice and deep where us dogs can actually swim and mom floats in her tube. It's big enough that mom can throw toys for us and we swim after them. We stayed for about and hour and it was A LOT for fun. Hope we get to o there again!

Today it's rainy off and on so we're chilling. Dave and Randy stopped by and mom said once the storms pass we might go tubing. I hope cause it will be fun. I love tubing:)

 

Hi everyone!

Just wanted to drop a quick note and let you know that I had a visit at Manor Care last night. All my friends were so happy to see me and Joe was doing much better since his wife is back from the hospital. I was VERY happy to see that! I met some new people last night too and I always enjoy that.

Not much else happened this past week cause of the heat and storms. I'm pretty sure we're heading to the cabin and I'll be sure to tell you about anything exciting that may happen. I think it may be for a while too cause I heard mom and dad talking about Alison and them staying at our house while we are gone so they can use the pool. Yeah, I'll miss not getting to see them, but I wouldn't give up going to the mountains for anything!

I hope everyone has a great weekend and be careful with the heat and all the bad weather. Bark at you later!

 

New friends

Last night dad had some of his friends from work come over. There were even a couple kids. Levi who is 4, loved the water and liked when we would jump in the pool and get the ducks. I did that for a little while, but then Echo kind of took that over. I did swim a little when mom got it to play with us, but when she got out, so did and and then I just chilled. I really like Melissa and I hung with her most of the night. You could tell she was a dog person and she petted me a lot and I loved it! It was a nice evening once the sun went down and needless to say, after all the swimming and visiting, I was tired and slept really well.

We're having another hot day today so I'm sure we'll get to go swimmy at some point as long as there are no storms. Until mom and dad get home, I'm going to nap so I'm ready to go:)
