I'm a sister! Technically generation-ly speaking I'm an auntie, but I think being a big sister is funner! Daddy took me to the airport VERY late Friday night. It was neat! Buses and planes and people and luggage! We walked around a bit, then I saw Mama walking up to us! She was wearing a weird front back-pack with a little puppy inside!
Puppy schmuppy! I missed you Mama! I was more excited to see her than anything! On the long ride home I sniffed my new brother, his name is Frank!
I've got to get Mama to get pictures of him so he can start his own Dogster page! I'll show him how, that's what sisters are for!
He's almost 7 weeks old and sleeps and plays, sleeps and plays. He tries looking for my udders, luckily I don't have any! BOL!! He has little needle teeth!
I'm not WAY excited about him, but about half the time he cuddles with me I stay, half the time I get up.
Frank and Joey! Joey and Frank! Mama says we can call him Frank-furter when he's sunbathing, and Franken-stein for Halloween maybe, and Frankie too!
Mom and Dad had it narrowed down to 3 names, Frank didn't care which one it was. So they let ME pick! Isn't that nice? I like Frank. It has a nice ring to it! Bedtime, must sleep when the puppy sleeps! BOL!

Hi everyone! Am I the diary pick of the day two days in a row? You know, I think it's because of all that confidence training I had! Now that I'm not as shy I can handle being the pick twice!
I'll bet one is for Ulli. I'll defer that to her. :) She'll be happy at the bridge, she's still famous and loved!
If I hadn't had that training, I think I might be shy about this 'being the star' thing! But NO! I'm smiling and looking coy and out in the spotlight! Trying to get the cameras to get my good side! (that's every side...) BOL!!
One more day and my brother comes! Mama said she'll start pitching more names today... She's a little worried about take off and landing with the boy under the seat, but guesses she'll be able to lean over and keep her hand in there with him.
He's gonna be the best dog ever! I know I said it once, but I'm so happy I can train this little guy to be my right hand man! He'll be my personal dog! BOL!!
Being the pick yesterday made me happy, and today I'm just thrilled! I feel like a celebrity! Woof Woof! I just LOVE feelin' special! It might be my favorite thing!

WOW!! I'm a diary pick of the day! Who knew? I wanna know how y'all knew! BOL!! My Mama said she saw it in an email, and called Daddy to tell me!
You know what I'm getting for being a diary pick of the day? A BABY BROTHER! BOL!! I'm gettin' a puppy! I'm going to raise him like he's my baby! I'm glad we're getting a young one, that way I can shape him just how I like him! BOL!!
Mama said she has him all picked out for me. She said she already asked if he liked 'Toe Jam', 'Booger', 'Upchuck', and 'Ear Wax' (my latest name idea!) and he didn't seem to respond to them. I'm trying not to take it personal, and am brainstorming new names! BOL!
He comes home late late Friday night! Tonight is... Wednesday? Two more days!
I'm gonna have to prowl around on here so I can find the daily and weekly picks!
Thanks SO MUCH to all my sweet furrends for the rosettes and congrats! I sure feel special lately!
Dogster is my favorite place! Well, after going for a walk, of course!

What the heck? Am I doing this right? Mom goes out of town and Dogster is all different? Ohhh, change is hard for me! Good thing I found more confidence at boot camp!
Now to just navigate around this place.... Hmmm.... where did my furrends go? My furrend updates? Hmmmm..... I'm gonna have to put my thinkin' cap on!
Mama is in Tennessee! She's finding me a brother! I thought of a new name - how 'bout 'Toe Jam'? It's easy to say, rolls off the tongue, and is only two syllables!
I'm gonna go sniffing for my furrend updates!!

Mama's nesting! Know why? She says she's gonna go meet the puppy stork in Tennessee tomorrow! She's been cleaning and nesting and getting toys ready!
She asked me what I want to name the puppy! I love being involved! She says we'll see what names we like, see what names the puppy likes, and compromise! How fun! I'm gonna try for Booger and see what happens... That would be SO FUNNY if everyone liked it! BOL!!! Maybe I'll recommend 'Upchuck' too.... BOL!
I've been lonely without Ulli, I've had a lot of time to think! BOL!
I am also WAY calmer now that I'm home from Boot Camp! Mom and Dad thought I was super tired, but they realize now I'm just calmer! More confident! I really enjoy my active schedule and hanging out leashed with Mom and Dad when they are home!
I'm still trying to train them to not make me go in my crate at night, but when they bring out the treats how can I resist? Oh well, it is comfy in there, and they are only a few feet away!
Friday my little brother arrives! I'm excited! Mom says don't teach him to be a poop eater... We'll see - he might have elite taste like me! I can't help that! BOL!!

Whew! What a week I've had! I've been to Boot Camp alright! It was very nice Boot Camp though! BOL!
I am like a trained athlete now! Mama and Daddy giggled at me last night because I was sacked out and didn't move a muscle! This morning they even had to ask me more than once if I was 'hungry'! Whew, I'm BEAT!
Mama says one more after breakfast nap, then in a couple of hours we're gonna take a run!
I have learned SO MUCH! I've learned that noisy stuff isn't necessarily dangerous or scary! How 'bout that? I've learned that people love me and are willing to pet me! I like that....
Mom and Dad are learning too, Mom says we're all changing for the better! I'm still so tired though, I'll have to catch up with y'all later!

I'm away at camp! Mama says it's Enrichment Camp/ Uncle Charlie's Boot Camp! Let me tell you, I am having SO. MUCH. FUN!!! Uncle Charlie introduced me to Mickey Mouse! I love him! I'm going to ask for one when I get home!! I hear he's real famous, but I've never seen him before! He's like a mouse, but BIG! Uncle Charlie took the picture of me and Mickey hanging out, my new profile pic!
I'm meeting all sorts of people who are enamored with me, and other animals too! I'm going to stores and businesses and stables, oh my! Uncle Charlie is keeping my mind very busy and engaged! He says I'm a good girl, and pretty too!
Mama says this is the big stepping stone to me being a therapy dog. She thinks people will LOVE it if I come visit them. I'm interested! Mom gets pictures every evening, she is so happy!
Mom and Dad pick me up on Saturday morning, and they get some human training! I can't wait! I have real good roomies where I am staying now too. :) BOL!! I'm a HAPPY dog!

Hi y'all! I'm going on a trip today! Mama and Daddy say I'm going somewhere, to Ulli's super dooper trainers house. They say it will be like getting boarded but a hundred times funner! I'll get to play with doggies and meet people and go all sorts of new places! Mom says they are going to help get the 'shy' out of me. This is exciting! I'll be there for a whole week, but Mama says she and Daddy will get pictures all week of my bee-yoo-tee-ful self!
Life has been pretty good lately, despite my favorite sister being gone. We get to keep the shades open, and even the windows open! I like to see outside and smell what's going on out there. Mom has started running me and that is keeping me tired! Whew! Mom and Dad sure do give me lots of attention! I like it!
Mama says in about 2 weeks I'll be blessed with a baby brother! A furry one! I think I'll like that. I like small things!
Wish me luck! It will be nerve-wracking, but between the super nice trainer, his super nice wife, AND THREE super nice doggies, I think I might be in heaven! BOL!! I'll see if I can get to the computer during the week....

Wow, am I beat! Mom and Dad stuck me in the little car and we drove and drove and drove! We went to San Diego, and since I'm used to riding in the truck it took effort to get comfortable!
We went to San Diego! It was exciting! We opted for a picnic on the dog beach at sunset over going to a dog furrendly restaurant! Woot woot!
Mommy and Daddy are learning new things about me now that Ulli is gone. Ulli had such a strong personality and protective (now we know she was really sick...) streak, it really overshadowed my delicacy, besides, with Ulli I didn't need to worry about anything! I was 'the good one'! Well....
It turns out I am a little protective myself! Where's Ulli's protection went to 50 feet, mine is only about 20 feet! I have always been okay with other dogs, but at the dog park I said 'get away'! I'll bite you! It wasn't a crazy bark like Ulli, just a deep warning bark.
Mom and Dad were perplexed! They didn't know what to do! They said, Joey, you're the good one! What's happening? I had to tell them, I'm taking over! I have to! Besides, those dogs that stormed me at the dog park the other day FREAKED ME OUT!
Luckily the sun set and we went to the hotel. We were on the 3rd floor and - get this - you could see BETWEEN the stair steps on the way up! I looked between every one and was very very cautious! Mom and Dad were proud of me. Sometimes I think these humans are stupid, what are they thinking putting holes between the steps? Sheesh! Maybe they're tryin' to weed out the really skinny ones?
I am SO HAPPY to be back home! Whew! I missed cuddling with my bed!!

Guess where Mommy and Daddy are taking me? San Diego, California! Daddy has business there and me and Mom are going for the ride! Dad is like our travel agent, he has found dog friendly hotels, beaches, AND RESTAURANTS! Boy, I've never been to a restaurant before! I'm excited!
Mama is going to take me for a run in a minute, to help me from being too bouncy! Ha ha! We'll only be there for one and a half days, but I'm excited! I've had a bath and I'm ready to shine for the world! Or, San Diego! Wonder how many restaurants we can hit in that time.... :)
