Wow, I've been so bizzy thiz summer that I haven't had time to rite in my diary. Back in May I went to the beech -- THAT WAS FUN!!! Mom sez we get to go again in Septemmmbrr. I can't wait!
I've been taking jillity classez too all summer. Thatz really been fun. Mom haz been taking me to jillity trials (but she won't let me compete yet) and showie-goes where I can practiz big coursez. Mom sez I can try to run in a REAL trial in the fall. I'm eggzited!
Grandma and grandpa came and visited us a few weekz ago. Grandpa sed I'm MUCH calmer now than I wuz when I firzt met him at Chrismaz.
We had another doggie visit just last week. Mom called her a "foster" who needed a new home juzt like I did way back when. She found a new forever home right away with a nice lady not too far from here.
Mom sez she's afraid I'm going to hurt myself. Two weekz ago I saw a bee buzzing around the back porch and I just had to catch it! Only problem was I tried to catch it in my mouth and I did almost catch him, but he got mad and then I got a stingy feeling on my snout. Mom sed my face swelled up like a balloon so she gave me Benniedrill and then I felt better. My face hurt for a while that night but then the next day I felt okay.
Mom sed she's putting together a first aid kit for me. I was sitting on Daddy'z lap the other night while we were outside, and there was a birdie that landed in the yard and I just had to go chase it NOW so I LEAPED off Daddy'z lap but I didn't land right and I scraped my knee on the patio. I scraped off a bunch of hair on my knee and I had a little boo boo, but I wuz ok. Mom sez she's gonna buy pet insurranze for me becauz I'm such a "wild man".
Well I gotta go. I got lotz of playing to do today.
Yesterday Mommy and I were out practicing jillity. We were doing something called front crossez and rear crossez. We did good at rear crossez but Mommy was getting frustrated when we were doing front crossez because I run SOOOO zoomy fast and she runs too slow.
Anyway, one time we were running Mommy almost squished me. She pointed to a jump for me to go over it, and I was gonna go over it, but then I saw her running behind me and it confuzed me for a second so I didn't jump it and I decided to spin around but the only problem wuz I was spinning right in Mommy's path and Mommy was running really fast so she almost squished me!!! She didn't step on me though, but it was close! So Mommy fell forward and couldn't get her balanze and did a face plant in front of the flower bed. I ran over to her and kizzed her face to make sure she was okay and she wuz, but we stopped playing jillity for a while. I don't think she wuz having az much fun az I wuz.
I went to skool last nite with Mommy and Millie and I started a new class. First I had to wait around in my crate while Millie did her class ... that was SOOOOO boring. I got in trubble with Mom for barking during Millie's class, but I was SOOOO bored I didn't know what else to do.
Then Millie had to get in her crate and it was MY turn to go to class.
I *LUV* the class I have now. I'm finally doing jillity like Millie duz. It's so much more fun than the obedienz classez were. I had so much fun last nite. There are other doggeez in the class and I think they had fun too. Mommy gave me lotz of treetz during the hole class. All I had to do was walk through a tube and go over a jump and I got lotz of treetz every time I did it! "No problem, Mommy..." I said, "...this is a piece of cake!"
I wuz really tired when we got home. I can't wait to go again!
