Not a fun weekend

December 9th 2013 9:40 am
[ Leave A Comment ]

The weekend started out rough. The weather was really bad with wind, rain, fog and it was dark. Poor mom was a nervous wreck til we finally got to the cabin. Needless to say with the bad weather we couldn't play outside at all so we just chilled in the cabin.

Saturday was cold, but it finally stopped raining. Only problem was that it is hunting season so mom wouldn't let us out for any period of time cause of all the hunters and she was afraid of stray bullets. So we hung out with mom in the cabin watching TV. Dad was hunting all day, but didn't have any luck.

Sunday we left early afternoon and in a hurry too cause it started snowing really heavy and mom doesn't like to drive in it. Fortunately we made it home okay before it got really bad. I LOVE the snow and to play in it. Mom let us out for a little to play and then she threw the frisbee for us too which was fun. But it wasn't for very long cause mom got cold and she was also worried about me sliding and hurting my hip. You know, I'm really starting to NOT like my hips cause they take all the fun away:(

Today when we went out to potty it was very icy so we were extra careful walking. Poor mom had to get down our steep driveway and I didn't hear a crash so I assume she made it down without running into our neighbor's house. You laugh, but that happened before. Our jeep was in the driveway and the brake popped and the jeep rolled down our driveway and right into our neighbor's house. I saw it all and it wasn't pretty!

I doubt we'll be doing anything tonight cause of the ice, but mom said if the weather allows, we'll have a busy night tomorrow night. I'll let you know if we get to do anything exciting.

Stay warm and stay safe!

 

No deer

Well so far our daddy didn't get any deer. He saw a bunch of doe and hopefully they will be around next week when he can hunt them, but as of now, now deer meat for us:(

This week so far we went to Country Meadows for a visit and it was a nice one. We were in the main area for a while because a few people sat down and talked with us. Of course Echo had to show off and play the piano and do a bunch of tricks and she gets lots of treats for doing it. But the joke is on her cause I don't have to do anything and I get treats too!

Other than visiting Country Meadows, we haven't done much. Mom throws frisbee for us after work, but it gets dark soon after she gets home so then we're back in the house. I really don't mind much though cause my hip has been bothering me and when I play I go all out, but then I pay for it later in the night. Speaking of night, I've been sleeping on dad's side of the bed while he's at deer camp and I'm loving it! It sure is a lot better than sleeping on the floor that's for sure.

Well, that's about all I have for now. I hope any of my pals affected by this wild weather are nice and cozy in their homes, but still get to go out and play too!

 

Good luck hunters!

Saturday as promised, we went for a kubota ride. We didn't stay in the woods long cause of hunting season, but it was fun to go for a ride and mom let us walk back down and that was fun too cause I like sniffing everything on the way:) We did play frisbee for a little and then we went antiquing again with mom and dad. I don't mind even if I have to wait in the car for a little cause it's nice to go for rides:) The rest of the evening we just relaxed and kept nice and warm in the cabin.

Sunday we saw 4 doe and a buck right out in the field where we play. It was really cool and mom said she is always so proud of us dogs for watching the deer and never running after them. Us animals had to head back home in the afternoon since mom had to work Monday, but dad stayed and I wish I could have stayed with him, but his buddies were coming to hunt and they'd be in the woods all day anyway so I guess going home with mom was better.

When we got home mom unpacked then we went to the barn with her. It was cold, but I didn't mind and Echo and I had fun running around chasing each other. We did help mom bring the horses in and got them fed and settled in for the night. When we got home we all cuddled up in bed and watched TV. since dad isn't home right now I get his spot on the bed and I love it! Don't get me wrong I miss my dad and I love when he's home with us, but when he's not, I do take advantage of grabbing his spot in bed:)

Tomorrow night we're going to Country Meadows and we haven't been there since Halloween so I know everyone will be happy to see us. Thursday Poppy Waple has his heart surgery so please say a prayer for him that everything goes well.

That's about all I have for now. I'll be sure to let you know if anything new or exciting happens. Good luck to all the hunters out there!

 

Happy Belated Thanksgiving!

Wow! Everyone must have been on the site yesterday giving the free gifts and it crashed! At least that's what mom thinks cuz when she signed in she couldn't give gifts or post, so sorry for not sending any gifts for Thanksgiving to all my generous pals who sent them to me. Thank you all so much and I promise to return the love next time...if it doesn't happen again.

Ok now to my happenings. Tuesday we went to Manor Care and we had a good time. It was Roy's 90th birthday so we wore our party hats, yes real party hats and I'm sure mom will post the pix to prove it. We had balloons, cake and everything and it was fun:). Mom's friend Barb went with us again too which is nice. We visited all our friends and it was nice to see Joe and his wife in the rec area. Joe is doing so much better now that his wife is on the same floor and I'm so happy:D

Wednesday mom was busy shopping and running errands after work so we didn't do much, but that changed on Thanksgiving. After mom got home from her Thanksgiving dinner we headed to the mountains and I was sooooooooooo happy!! It has been a month since we went and I missed it. We didn't get there until after dark but I didn't care cuz I was just happy to be there. Dad came up a few hours later.

Today was really cold but we played outside for a while anyway. Then we went antiquing with mom and dad. They found a couple good things. We did take a little walk with mom to throw out some food for the critters. I was all wound up and it was a little icy cuz they had snow so mom made me stop running so my hip didn't slip out again. This stupid hip takes away all my fun:(. Anyway, mom said tomorrow we'll go for a kubota ride but can't stay in the woods long cuz hunting season starts Monday and dad doesn't want us disturbing the deer so I guess no fun in the woods for a couple weeks. Oh we'll at least I'm in the mountains and that's what matters most!

 

Again!

Can you believe it? Dogster picked me the other day as DDP! I don't know what I've done to deserve this honor once again, especially since nothing has been happening worth me posting. Bur regardless, thank you Dogster!

So as you could see by my lack of posting, nothing has been happening around here. Dad is working a lot of hours for the outage and mom is crazy busy with trying to get work done around the house and also doing Christmas stuff. She's making calendars of us for our friends at the nursing homes so that takes a lot of time looking for the pictures. That's pretty much what she's been doing in all her down time. I like Christmas, but it does take up a lot of mom's time. I know we're all wound tight too cause we haven't been to the cabin in almost a month and that is unheard of! We all need that time away and I can't wait to go next week!!!

 

DDP 2x!

Poor mom has been so busy the past few days she totally missed that I was picked as DDP for 2 out of 4 days. WOW! Now that is quite the honor and I thank Dogster from the bottom of my heart. I don't know what story I told to deserve such and honor, but I greatly appreciate it:)

I wish I had some good story to follow up my DDP with, but unfortunately mom has been really busy with search and rescue training the past few days us dogs haven't done much. She did walk us when she came home on Saturday and yesterday she played a little frisbee, but other than that, I've just been chilling. I did cuddle with mom last evening to watch a movie and I did really enjoy doing that.

I don't think we have a whole lot going on this week either. We may make a visit to Country Meadows depending on how the week goes. Mom did promise that we WILL be going to the mountains soon and I can't wait!!!!! That time can't come fast enough!

Our thoughts are with all those affected by the severe weather that has been going on recently. Please say a prayer for them all.

 

Visit with Emilie

November 11th 2013 9:40 am
[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ]

Saturday we went with mom and dad to see Ali, Jan and Emilie. I was really happy that we got to go along because it's been a long time since we saw them. Mom said all Emilie kept asking about is for her to bring us "hunds" along. That's what Emi calls us and that means dogs in German. Yes, our Emilie can speak 2 languages already!

When we got there Emilie was napping, but as soon as she got up, she came outside to play with us. She threw the ball and frisbee for us and we had a lot of fun:) We played for a while, but then it got colder so we all went inside. Us dogs had to hang out downstairs as usual and it was driving us crazy this time though cause the neighbors came over and I knew there were a bunch of kids playing upstairs and I wanted to play too. Even though we didn't get to play with the kids, mom did let us sleep in the bedroom this time which is a first. We were on our very best behavior so we would be allowed to sleep in there again.

Sunday we played with Emilie some more in the morning and then we headed home after lunch. I had such a good time playing with Emi and I can't wait til we go again. Mom said Emi will be staying with us for a whole week in December and I can't wait! BTW, I know mom took some pix and I'm sure she'll post them as soon as she gets a chance so keep your eye out for them.

I'm not sure what is going on this week. I know we will be going to Manor Care at some point cause it's Sara's birthday and mom wouldn't miss that. I don't think we're going anywhere this weekend cause mom has her map and grid training all weekend for search and rescue so I guess we'll just chill at home. And "chill" seems to be what we will do too cause they are calling for some pretty cold weather coming our way. Thank goodness I have a heavy coat!

Can you believe I am a DDP today? I know I can't, but I am honored that Dogster thinks enough of me to grant me a DDP. Yesterday Echo had the honor and now today it's me. I guess they really like our stories and I'll do my best to keep them coming. THANK YOU Dogster!!

 

Not a whole lot happening

I wish I had something exciting to tell you about this past weekend, but truth be told, it was pretty boring and I didn't do much.

Saturday Echo got to go to search training for a couple of hours and when mom got home she cut the grass. We hung outside playing frisbee and just enjoying the nice day. When she was finished, we did go with her to the barn and the store. We didn't get out though cause mom didn't stay at the barn since she was so tired from all the work she did. Oh yeah, we did get a bath. I didn't really need one, but Echo was in some swampy stuff so when I saw mom give her a bath, of course I felt left out and needed to get one too.

Sunday mom and dad were antiquing all day so us dogs just chilled. It was cool to see all the neat stuff they found. Mom found that creepy looking money with the cymbals. He freaked me out!

So as you can see, not much happening and I don't think we have much going on this week either. I'm sure we'll get to play with Anna at some point, but now it gets dark so early it won't be for long when we do play with her:(

Oh yeah, gotta tell you, it's official, the property in Shunk is sold! This is great news cause that means we can start working toward moving to Juniata... 18 months and counting!

 

Halloween at Manor Care

November 1st 2013 6:52 am

Last night we went trick or treating at Manor Care and had a great time. We got to see all of our friends and they gave us lots of treats (doggie treats of course). Everyone loved our costumes and mom said I was pawsome because I didn't try to get my hat off at all, unlike Echo who shook her head every time and knocked it off. Joe and his wife were coming out from dinner so mom was able to get our picture with both of them. They are such a cute couple:) Look for mom to post the picture soon. We also visited with all our friends on the third floor and Roy on the first floor. We were there for almost 2 hours which made for a long evening, but I didn't mind cause it made them happy!

Now that all of the excitement of Halloween is over things will go back to normal for a while. I don't think we have much going on the next week or so, but I won't mind that after this past week. I hope everyone had a great Halloween and get to enjoy this weekend. Don't forget to turn your clocks back and get that extra hour of sleep!
