All I can say is WOW! Dogster has named little old me "Dog of the Week". What an honor. Thank you Dogster.

And a shout out to my friends Sammy Jo, Toby Jo, Cory Jo, and Joey Jo. They sent me a beautiful flag for my honor. Mom and I have been working out in the yard all weekend and have not been on the computer so didn't realize until we got the Jo Jo's flag that I was Dog of the Week. Hey, thanks guys for letting me know.

Imagine my handsome face on the community page all week. They put one of my silly pictures up.

Hope I make some new friends.

Poor Priscilla, now she has to be nice to be all week.

I'm stoked.

 

Something Crawled Under Our Gate

We were outside late last night helping Mom dig up the garden with Grandma supervising. All of a sudden out of the corner of my eye I saw something white over by the front gate. Well of course I was there in no time barking up a storm with Priscilla right next to me. Mom just thought we were barking at Pappy next door and looked up and said to be quiet and get away from the gate. You should have seen the look of surprise and horror on Mom's face when she realized whatever we were barking at was inside the gate with us.

Well Mom has trouble with her knees and she's a senior now so she doesn't move to fast, but she sure did last night.

By the time she got halfway there she realized it was a small Chihuahua. I had never seen one before. Priscilla does not tolerate dogs and Mom always keeps her away from other dogs. So Mom tried her best to try to get us away from this little guy. I confess I did not help. I was just non stop barking. Mom finally was able to pick up Priscilla and put her in the house and run back to me and the "white creature". By the time she got ahold of wiggly me, the creature had slipped back under the wooden gate. Man was he skinny. Mom quickly put me down, went out the gate to see if she could find the little dog and take him home.

She saw the dog but it was skitterish but she followed it two doors down and found it had already gotten home safe and sound. She talked to his Mom and told her about the adventure.

Mom's hoping that this scared the dog enough so he will not do that again and that his parents will keep a better eye on him.

It was fun, and Mom was so proud of Priscilla not attacking the dog. I think because it was so small she thought it was a puppy and she seems to like puppies.

 

It's Exhausting Being Me

What a weekend we had. We had relatives over for Mother's Day and they played catch with me and I still didn't get enough.

Mom was sick today so she stayed home from work and Grandma came down and played catch with me 3 times. I was over the moon.

I'm plumb tuckered out right now, but if Mom wants to play I'm there. Looking forward to having Mom home for a 3 day weekend. Big Fun.

 

I'm Everywhere, I'm Everywhere

I had the best afternoon. Mom took me to my very first playdate. It was a group called "Boston Commons" in Edina.

The excursion didn't start out well. I had my harness on and my jacket and I was so excited. I got into the car and it dawned on me. Mom only takes me to the vet or to have my toe nails trimmed. Oh no, what was I thinking. I had to get out of here. But Mom clever minx that she is, was already pulling out of the garage. Well I hate to admit it and luckily there were no witnesses (except Mom) I cried like a little girl. My tears dried up once I realized we had passed the road that goes to the Vet. Now I was intriqued. Where were we going?

Imagine my delight when we walked into a building that did not smell like a vets office. In fact, the smells were wonderful. We went through a gate and I got my bearings and then mirror images of me started coming through that same gate. Was I hallucinating? Ever the curious one, I had to go and check it out. They were pups that looked a lot like me.

Mom was a little apprehensive at first and kept me on the leash for awhile. Of course as this was my first enounter with these facimilies of myself I had to show them who was boss and did a lot of vocalizing. Mom was sure we were going to get kicked out, but I settled down and had the time of my life for an hour and a half. I must have smelled 13 butts. I seemed to gravitate toward the male species and Mom was little concerned about that choice and I chased a gazillion balls. I met a larger dog named Oreo that could put two balls in his mouth at one time. He tried to teach me but as big as Priscilla says my mouth is, it's not that big.

So I had the most wonderful afternoon. Thanks Mom. It was heaven.

When we got home Mom thought for sure I would nap. Surprise Mom! Here's my ball - lets play catch. You should have seen the look on Mom's face. She couldn't believe I was still raring to go.

Mom said if I'm good we can go again in April. Yay!!!!!

 

What An Honor - Diary of the Day - I'm Over the Moon

Dogster bestowed "diary of the day" on me today. The best part is that I've made new friends.

Priscilla is afraid I'll get the big head. No worries. I'm just stoked to have my face on the community page. Big fun.

Mom is so proud.

 

Yay It's Laundry Day

March 2nd 2013 5:59 pm

This is one of my favoritest days. Laundry Day. Mom did Gammy's clothes and all our blankets.

When Mom does the laundry I follow her to the basement and we play with my ball downstairs while she loads the washer. Big fun.

Then when the clothes are dry Mom says "lets go get the warmness" then I run down to the basement and sit right in front of the dryer. Mom loads up all the clothes in the basket and we go back upstairs and she puts the lovely warm pile of clothes on the bed and I snuggle underneath it all until I come up warm and panting. Nothing better on a winter morning.

The basement is my backyard for the winter, as I hate running in the snow and getting my toes cold and you know I have to play catch. It's my life.

Mom exercises in the basement too so we get in a lot of catch.

Life is good. Mom says Spring is just around the corner.

Boy is it cold in our neck of the woods. Mom says it's colder than a witches something. Not sure what that is. She says when I'm older she'd tell me.

Usually Cylla and I take our time finding the perfect spot on the lawn to make our donation but these days when it's 10 below zero we pick a spot really quick and some days when the snow is deep, the porch is my spot.

Mom is great at standing in the doorway and knowing the exact moment to open the door as we come zipping in. We have trained her well.

They're saying 30 on Sunday - yay a heat wave. But Tuesday bitterly cold again. Mom says Mother Nature is having a lot of fun with us.

I miss Gammy. When it's this cold she stays upstairs and doesn't come down to see us. Mom says it's too cold for her to smoke downstairs on the porch and throw the ball for me. And it's so nice and toasty upstairs she doesn't want to leave. We live in a duplex so Gammy's furnace is in the attic and the heat is forced through Gammy's ceiling and our furnace is in the basement and comes into our floor and because heat rises it goes up to Gammy's floor as well.

I can't wait for spring to come. I need balls to catch outside.

Hope everyone stays warm and remember "Don't eat the yellow snow".

I'm Honored Again - What Can I Say I'm a Blabber

Thanks Dogster for making me a diary pick of the day. I bet my new pictures that Mom FINALLY put on my page drew their attention.

Cylla and I have been spoiled. Around the holidays Mom had a 4 and a 5 day weekend. Now we only had her for two days. Not fair.

We want to say a shout out to our Aunt Robbie on her Birthday today. Mom says it wouldn't be polite to say how old she is so I'll just be diplomatic and say "she's older than dirt". Was that okay Mom?

Ooops gotta run, Mom's been awfully quiet, I'd better go check on her and I've been looking for that elusive sunbeam. It was in the sewing room this morning but chubby Cyllas hogged it all. Oh it's back in the kitchen, gotta run.

I Just Found Out I'm A Lap Dog

I jumped up on Mom's lap while she was playing with that computer box and she showed me all kinds of videos with dogs that looked just like me. I couldn't believe some of the things they were saying to me. Mom said I was cocking my head back and forth. I told a few of them off and then settled down on Mom's lap and she gave me a back massage.

Why the heck didn't I do this before. It was heaven. I'll have to try that again sometime.

Mom says Cylla and I are butter butts tonight. She said we were being annoying. We keep talking to her but she just doesn't understand. You would think after 4 years she would finally pick up our language. But she's a good mom and has great hands so I think we'll forgive her shortcomings.
