Happy Cinco De Mayo!

Better late than never mom always says:) Just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Cinco De Mayo! Party hard, but stay out of trouble! I'm staying out of trouble that is for sure. Of course, kind of hard to get in trouble when you're not doing anything. It's been a couple of boring days. Yes, rain again:( Mom was going to take me to the barn last night, but she was so tired from work that we just hung out at the house and cuddled. I didn't mind that though, I love cuddling with mom. She told me we'll stop tonight before class. It is my last agility class and not sure when the next one starts. Hopefully not too long because I love my agility class:)

 

I hit the trigger

Friday night I had flyball. We did our runs then worked on the box a bit. Mom said I did great on the runs and I didn't mess them up at all. But the box was always a hard concept for me. Last time, I had a hard time grasping the concept of triggering the ball to release before grabbing it. Not Friday night. The first time I hit the trigger and released the ball! Mom was so proud of me. The only thing I have to do now is grab the ball when it shoots out at me. I missed it every time, but still grabbed it and took it to mom. The instructor said sooner or later it will all click and I'll get it. Unfortunately, I'll miss next practice because mom said we'll be in the mountains, but that's okay, I have a memory like an elephant and won't forget what I have to do.

Saturday was a busy day. We picked up Megan than stopped at the barn. There were lots of people there I never saw before. Mom cleaned Tequilla's stall then took her out to graze a little. Me, I played tug-of-war with her as I love to do:) After the barn we went to this place that had a lot of nature stuff for a walk. It was fun, except that I had to stay on a lease. There were a lot of other people walking their dogs too and most were nice, but one dog came after me. Mom was none too happy about that. She if I ever get hurt, she'll end up in jail for beating up someone who doesn't control their dog. If they can't control them, they shouldn't go in public until they can! Anyway, we saw this strange little creature carrying it a mouse. It ran right by me and I just watched it because I had no idea what it was and mom said to "leave it". Later, she checked the internet and said it was a little mink. I guess it was taking it's dinner home. After the walk, we went to Tanner C.'s. I was so happy!!!:D We played like nuts for a while until we both laid down pooped from playing so hard. Tanner's mom wasn't there and mom told me that she was watching him for a couple days. I could tell when she was with him too because she would come home and I could smell him. I was mad that she didn't take me along everytime she went to see him:( But she told me that I couldn't go everytime because she had to let him out and feed him and if I went, he would just want to play. Plus, it was raining and mom said we weren't getting all slopped up.

Yesterday I didn't do anything. It rained all day... AGAIN! Mom and dad cleaned the house then went to the hockey game. The Hershey Bears won!!! Mom said that it is a really good thing and now they are up 2-0 going on the road. Mom and dad really like the Bears and I hope they win what Calder Cup thing mom talks about.

All in all I had a good weekend. Today doesn't look good again with more rain. Not sure if I'll get to do anything because of that, but at least dad is home with me today since he's off. I hope everyone had a good weekend and bark at you later.

 

Just call me "Martian Dog"

Last night was Thursday so you know what that means... time for mom to cut the grass. However, this time seemed harder for mom. She kept emptying the bag from the mower after only a couple of times across the yard. I think maybe because the grass was so high. She just cut it a week ago, but she said with all the rain, then hot weather it grew really fast. She made dad get the tractor out and run through it that way to make it a little easier. It took her longer to cut to which didn't make me happy because I was bored:( Usually I just lay in the grass she already cut, but because I was so bored, I started to follow her around. When she was finally done and sat down, she saw my feet... I had green feet!! She laughed at me and said I looked like a martian dog with my green feet. She said all I need to do now is sprout antennas... BOL :D Dad was none too happy that mom didn't wash my feet and the green wore off on the carpet. I guess mom was just too tired and didn't think about it. Tonight is flyball practice. I'll bark at you all tomorrow and let you know how I did. Have a good night!

 

Dog on the loose!

Last night I went to the barn with mom. It was Tequilla's 10th birthday so mom stopped at the store to get her some apples and muffins as a treat. We went on a trail ride with Dave and Chicka. It was a nice evening and a nice ride. When we got back, boy did I get a surprise. I was walking along with mom and Tequilla when all of a sudden... BAM! There was a dog on the loose and it was Pete! He knocked me off of my feet because I didn't hear or see him coming. I didn't know who it was at first because Pete and Polly are suppose to be in their stall, but apparently, Pete got out again. Well, I was none to happy because he knocked me down so I went after him. Not to hurt him, but to let him know that he couldn't do that. I ran after him and try as he may, he couldn't outrun me (none of my friends can:) So I hit him back and spun him around. When he got back on his feet, he chased me, but couldn't catch me. I wasn't mad at him anymore so we played like that for a while. But, as with all of my friends, he got tired of chasing me and not catching me so he quit playing. The only one that doesn't give up is Finn, but Finn still isn't around:( Anyway, since Pete stopped playing, I just hung with mom again. She told me to try and get Pete to come back in the barn, but he wouldn't follow me anymore. I guess he was mad at me since I wouldn't let him catch me. He eventually did go back in his stall. I know he isn't suppose to be out, but it is nice when him and Polly get loose because I have someone to play with. That was my big excitement for the night.

 

Jumps, jumps and more jumps

Last night I had agility class. Dad went along to see what we do. Unfortunately for him, all the equipment wasn't back from the weekend's competition so all we did was jumps. Dad really wanted to see me do the a-frame and dogwalk. Hopefully next time he comes to watch we'll do that. But last night, we did jumps, jumps and more jumps! First we did them in a row like flyball. Then we did them in a circle, which kind of confused me at first, but then I got the hang of it. Then we added tunnels to them and mom had to do that front crossover thing she hates. All is all, it wasn't a bad night. I would have liked to do some other stuff, especially after missing last week, but it was still fun... hot though! They didn't have the AC on and although it was cooler than outside, it was still hot! Next week is our last week and mom doesn't know if we start the next session the following week or not. The instructor didn't know yet. Hopefully we do because I like doing this stuff. Although, mom said it will be harder to make the classes in the summer because we have so much stuff going on. She assured me though that if they have another session, she'll sign me up!

BTW, mom put up one of the pictures of me playing with Tequilla the other week and also a picture of me sleeping on the backseat of the truck on the way home from the mountains on Sunday. As you can see, I was really tired... yawn:)

 

Another hot one

Spent the day in the nice AC at home. It was another hot one again today. I thought it was spring, not summer? I did go to the barn with mom though. She worked Tequilla in the arena then we went for a little ride around the pasture. She said it was too hot to do much more than that. Dad came over to help mom take her poles and barrels to another arena and I got to ride in the back of the truck with mom! It was only over the hill in on the farm so it wasn't like I was on the road. Mom says doggies shouldn't ride in the back of trucks on the road because they could jump or fall out and get hurt really bad. Heck, my mom won't even let me stand up while the car is moving or let me stick my head out the window. She said I could something could fly in my face and hurt me. Moms can be so over protective. But that's okay, better safe than worry I guess. Anyway, no one was there to feed the horses so mom had to so that. I just followed her around and tasted the water she put in the water buckets to be sure it was okay:) I also went with her to feed the goats. However, I learned my lesson a while back that I need to stay outside the gate and wait patiently for mom. One time I didn't do that and tried to go under the fence and ZAP! Yep, the electric fence got me. Not anymore, I'm smarter now:) We finally left and I was never so happy to get home in the AC. I love the barn, but having long hair makes it hard for me when it's hot. At least I had plenty of water and shade to rest in. Mom could have left me at home, but then I would have been really upset and she knows that. I'm glad she takes me with her, even on hot days:) They say today is the last hot one so hopefully we get spring back and get to enjoy that a little.

 

Back to the Mountains!

Yipee!! We went back to the mountains this weekend and it was soooooooooo much fun!!!! I knew where we were going when we didn't stop for over an hour. The only time our ride is longer than an hour is if we go to the mountains. It was so nice to be there again. Although, I must say I wasn't happy when we got there and unpacked and mom and dad left me right away. They came back a short time later and mom said she was sorry, but her and dad were really hungry because they hadn't eaten all day. I guess I'll forgive them, especially since they didn't put me in the crate. This was actually the first time they left me out of the crate in the mountains while they went somewhere. It was nice:) After they got back, mom took me for a walk to our favorite play spot in the woods. She threw the stick for me and it was just so nice to finally be back here. I love the mountains and it's so peaceful a dog can hear themselves think. We went spotting that night and saw lots of deer, some possums, racoons and cats.

Saturday we went to the property. Mom played frisbee with me and we wenting hiking while dad did some stuff with the brush hog. It was really hot though and when we returned from our walk, mom sunned herself in the back of the truck while I rested under the truck in the shade. We were there for a few hours, then we took a ride to the next town. I was just glad to be in the air conditioning because I'm here to tell you, it got hot! When we got back to the cabin I was reallyexcited because my Brett was there:D I didn't expect to see him since he wasn't there when we left. He played with me for a while and that made me very happy. After dinner we went spotting again and mom, dad and Brett all squeezed up front. That means I was stuck in the back and couldn't really see much. Mom was complaining because Brett was driving too fast and she couldn't see the deer. Oh yeah, there was a little excitement. When we were spotting in this one area, some guy came out on the road and stopped us. First, it was kind of funny because he slid on the stones and fell. Mom said he was drunk and that's why it was so funny. But it wasn't too funny when he yelled at us and said that we couldn't spot in the field because of the cows. I growled at him when he approached the truck and dad told him this wasn't a cow field and he's drunk and didn't know what he was talking about. Brett then drove off. To avoid more conflict though, we didn't spot in that field on the way back. Some people just can't handle their booze I guess.

Sunday was even hotter than the day before and mom and me hung out in the cabin for a little while dad cut the grass. I was getting kind of bored and I guess my whining finally paid off because mom said we'd go for a walk. We went to my favorite spot but along the way we passed some people swimming in the creek and a couple of dogs too. That made me think that maybe I could go swimming too. When we got to our spot, I ran down to the creek, but stopped. I looked at mom then at the creek. Initially she said no, but then she felt bad because it was really hot so she told me okay. I didn't need her to say it again either. I was in the creek faster then a cat off of a hot tin roof!! The water was cold, but felt really good. Mom threw the stick for me, but she didn't get in. I guess it was too cold for her. The current was a little stronger than I'm use to, but mom didn't throw the stick far so I didn't have too much of a problem. It just felt really good to finally be cool and to go swimming!!! When we got back, dad looked at me and said "someone went swimming" and I just smiled at him because he knows how much I like it and he knew I was happy:)
Shortly after that we headed home. We stopped at this place where they bring the food to your car. Sort of like that those mom watches "Happy Days". I was happy because I got a hamburger and it was really yummy! When we got home, I had to get a bath. Mom said I smelled like the creek and I couldn't sleep in bed smelling like that. After my bath, I was so tired I crashed.

So, as you can see I had a great weekend and I'm excited for more weekends in the mountains. I hope everyone else had a good weekend too.

P.S. Mom didn't take many pictures this weekend, but did take a picture of me sleeping on the way home which I know she'll post so keep an eye out for that. She said I looked like an angel:)

 

We're going somewhere

Last night mom and dad cut grass then I went to the barn with mom. She only rode in the ring for a while, but it was nice to go even if we didn't go on a trail ride. When we got home, mom starting packing stuff, including my stuff... we're going somewhere! I was getting excited and bouncing off the walls because I thought we were leaving last night, but mom said not until later today. I have no idea where we are going, but I'm sure it will be somewhere fun (as it always is). I'll let you all know when I return. Mom said it is suppose to be a beautiful weekend so I hope everyone gets to enjoy it. Have a good one and bark at you later.

A bit shout out to my friend Binx for a great job with his mom at the meeting the other day. Way to go Binx!!

 

Attack of the paper!

April 23rd 2009 4:58 am

The past few days have been pretty uneventful. I didn't get to go to class on Tuesday because mom had another one of those migraine things. Poor mom, they really wear her down. Last night I went for a ride with mom after work, but I stayed in the truck while she ran into the store then back home. Shortly after, mom was out the door again. Apparently she went to a hockey game. I really wish I knew what this "hockey" stuff was that mom and dad go to all the time. Why don't they take me? Anyway, mom came home a couple hours later and she had a big box that she brought home from work. She got something out of it, then threw the box in the hallway. It made a funny noise that scared me. Mom tried to get me to come closer, but I was afraid. Finally, after come coxing, she got me close enough to see that the noise I was hearing was just lots of brown paper. But it wasn't paper like you write on, but crumpled, long brown paper that mom said they pack in boxes. At first I didn't want anything to do with it, but then it "attacked" me!!! Actually, it was mom playing with it and pretending it was attacking me. Because mom showed me that it wouldn't hurt me, we started to play a game with it. She would make it come after me and I barked like crazy at it then tried to grab it and run! It was funny because mom kept getting it around my neck like a snake and I kept grabbing and pulling it. Needless to say, it was paper and when I grabbed it, it tore apart. It was so much fun being able to destroy something without getting in trouble:) I never knew paper could be so fun... BOL! After we played for a while, mom took out the box and the now shredded paper and we just chilled for the rest of the night. Mom told me that I would be VERY happy with where we are going this weekend. She said it will make up for not doing much this week. I can't wait to see where we're going:)

 

Daily Diary Pick... again!

Wow, what a surprise I got today. I was picked for a second time to be featured in the Daily Diary. This is so exciting! But honestly, I can't take all the credit, mom does most of the work. Without mom to take me all these fun places and to spend so much time with me, I wouldn't have stories to share. Plus, she's the one who has to type them for me since my paws just make a mess of the keyboard... BOL:D We love sharing all my adventures, no matter how exciting or boring they may be and I'm glad everyone enjoys them. Thanks to Dogster for picking me and to all my pup pals for their support!!!
