Well, Mom and I have been trying to keep ourselves a little bit busy this week. Mom needs to get outside and enjoy the weather while it is still nice enough for her to. Because she is calling it Fall now, and all I know is that when she calls it that and starts putting sweaters on me oh boy. There is a change coming in the weather around here soon, and it will happen fast!ON come the clothes then SNOW white stuff!
Mom and I spent some good amount of time out in Daddy's backyard over the weekend. I enjoyed that allot because his backyard is bigger than the one we have at our apartment. We of course don't have an apple tree in our yard either, but Daddy does. Oh boy do I like the smell of those! They fall from his trees and just go PLOP on the ground! And I bop them around like they are balls, sniffing them and hitting them rolling over the grass where they have landed... There is nothing sweeter than that. Mom says sometimes that gets my fur a little sticky, but do I care? heck no! I just run into daddy's house when I am done outside, jump up on his high bed and roll around on it until all that is off and then I give him my look,
you all know what I am talking about, those eyes, that just melt your heart.
What?? Oh your blanket is wrinkled? I can fix that, and I paw it here and paw it there. The next thing you know, Daddy has fallen for my trick and he is coming toward me with a biscuit all for me! Wahoo!
What a life! Then it's Mom's turn,, of course she takes a little more work Because she knows what I am up to, Mom's always do you know. But eventually, by the time we are heading into snack time before bed or if it is the day we have to return home. She gives in and goes to the store next door and gets me those tasty beef sticks she just knows I adore. This past weekend I got a bonus one! The nice lady that owns the store saw me in the yard and heard me barking out my hello to her when she was returning to the store and she went into the store, came right over to me and started patting me on the head, giving me all sorts of praise and breaking me off pieces of one of those tasty beef sticks right up until it was all gone and then she gave me one last belly rub and said her bye byes and vanished back into her store. Wow she is swell. She always gives me special treats.. I think it is because I am such a helper, I greet her customers with a handy helper "Hello" bark from time to time when I am in the backyard at daddy's.
Anyhow, it is the nearing the end of the week again. I had to chase a squirrel off my back patio yesterday. Mom said I did a good job taking back my yard. :) Today, my package came in from the nice guy in the big brown truck with UPS on the side. Mom let me try on my new fleece houndstooth jacket and my new vest as well. she says I will be needing those to stay warm pretty soon. SNOW coming soon?? But she made a comment about the vest needing some adjustments for well, space requirement needed for Willy. She says it fits well, but she doesn't want me to 'make it wet' by mistakes.... good luck mom looks like another sewing job for papa the ol' boyscout training comes in handy BOL..

Well it is Tuesday morning. Mom and I got woken up by someone knocking really loud on our new next door neighbor's door. We definetly have come to believe they are a nuisance. But we know that we have to take a grain of pepper with every container of salt. Or something like that. Mom says sometimes you can't pick your neighbors, but when your a dog you can always sniff each other's tails. BOL.
That reminds me of a story mom told me once about how that all started.. BOL She was told this story from someone who was told it when he was very small by his mom ...
Why do dogs always sniff each other's tails??
The story goes,, that once upon a time a long long time ago all the dogs got together and had a big party. And they hung their tails up next to the door.
Well time went by and they had too much of a good time, and after awhile, when it was time for them to leave a few of the dogs made the mistake of taking the wrong tails home with them. Thus, now forever more all the dogs are left sniffing every tail in search of those lost tails!! BOL BOL I have to laugh everytime I think about that silly story.. It sorta makes since out of it though, Can you think of a better reason to tell a small child why doggies are always sniffing each other there?
It sure ends there curiousity quick. and mommy says, it works ..
Anyhow, mom is still confused as to how she ended up having to have two pages for me. And wanted to let everyone know she didn't try to confuse anyone by doing this. She just ended up having to do it yesterday when trying to sign up for a group. She is just as baffled as I am when I am looking for a toy in the bottom of my toy basket and it isn't there and I dig out all of my toys just to remember I left it upstairs in her bed. She is still confused about why I am still ascared of my own backyard.. I never use to be but over the past couple of weeks, suddenly I really really am.
