Taking a break!

I'm taking a break - already! I had such an exciting day yesterday! I just can't wait until I get through all the old stuff to tell you about it! So, I'm taking a break from recapping you about my adventures while I was taking a break.

After Dad and I hung out all day on Friday, we all went to visit my Aunt Susan, Uncle Andy, cousin Brian and dog cousin Granger. My grandparents and Lester came too! On Saturday we went to a place called Apple Hill. I don't know why they call it Apple Hill - I didn't see any apples there! I think it should be called Christmas Tree Hill. Cause that's what was there! And that's what we went shopping for! Who shops for a tree?!?! These people are crazy!

This is the one that Dad wanted. Mom and I had to talk some sense into him. Our ceilings are way up in the air at our house, but this was just too much!

Brian and I had an intense conversation about what kind of tree we each need. We decided that we like the short, squat, us-sized trees. This one seems just about perfect to us. For some reason, the adults didn't agree with us and kept looking for a different tree. They don't know what they are missing!

Then, we found one that will actually fit in the house! Dad decided to cut it down and bring put it in Papa's truck. Brian picked out a tree too. The trees got to ride together in Papa's truck.

After these crazy people cut down the tree, they wrapped it like a mummy! From there, it went in the truck! SOOOO strange!

After we loaded up the trees, it was time to head back to the house! We stopped for lunch. As usual, I got stuck under the table while all the people got to eat! It makes me SO jealous!! That place smelled really nummy! When we got home, it was time to do some playing and some napping. Uncle Andy and I played before I settled in for a nap.

I'm not sure what happened next. I settled in for a nap. I needed to rest after the day I'd had! I was dreaming away, oofing and running in my dreams. Then, I woke up. To this.

No one will tell me what happened, but I think I might be embarrassed to know. Perhaps I should just leave well enough alone and try to sleep lighter in the future.

Love and Licks,

Babies and Aztecs

A couple months ago, Mom, Dad and I went to GDB for the Blind Babies Foundation annual picnic. Mom didn't get any pictures of me playing with the babies, but there were many babies there and lots of little kids. I was SUPER good and Mom was way proud of me! She said I was fantastic! At one point, I laid down and let a whole bunch of kids pet me while we were in the kennel. I rolled over on my back and let them all do my favorite this - pet my belly! I had one kid holding my back paws, one kid playing with my front paws, one with my tail and 2 petting my belly! Heaven! People that knew me before coming home with Mom and Dad were AMAZED at how perfect I was! I've grown up a lot people!

There was also an Aztec dance ceremony. It was interesting, but I was kind bored. No one would let me join in!

I also met a new friend. This is Hercules. He is REALLY cool! It's a horse! Like I see at work! But, he is my size! And he's not a baby! It was SO crazy! He was super cool! His nose is super soft and lickable. Fun!

So that's another one of my many adventures! Come back soon and I will show you more! I'm off to another adventure in the mean time (I hear there is a train, Christmas trees and Santa involved! Woo hoo!)

Love and Licks,

Holy Moley! It's been a LONG time!!

OK, I've become a blog slacker! How can I expect all my buds to know what is up with me if I am not updating my blog?!?! Crazy! I know! So, now that I am 14 months old, I am making a renewed effort to keep up with my blog.

I've been a busy girl since I last blogged! Maybe I will work my way back over the last couple months. A lot has happened and I have had a lot of fun!

Since today is Thanksgiving and I am 14 months old, I will tell you the 14 things I am most thankful for. I am very blessed in this life and I am so very thankful!

1. I am thankful for my Mom and Dad for taking me in and loving me (even if they do have a lot of rules)
2. I am thankful for my dog food bin. It is always full of my favorite stuff!
3. I am thankful that I am not becoming a big sister this weekend (we were supposed to get a puppy on Saturday, but I am glad to be an only dog for a while longer).
4. I am thankful for the treat pouch. It carries my favorite things everywhere I go!
5. I am thankful for the friends I will get to see this weekend - Accord, Lupe, Granger, Lester, Garth and maybe Rembrandt.
6. I am thankful for my food bowl. It cradles my kibble just perfectly and makes it so yummy!
7. I am thankful that Mom and Dad's work buddies love me and like to play with me.
8. I am thankful that those work buddies all know where the treat jars are.
9. I am thankful I have friends to go to puppy class with: Persia, Cabana, Tara, Cherish, Ginger and Tulani.
10. I am thankful that Celeste told Mom to give me a cookie in the evening if dinner will be late (my tummy doesn't like being empty!)
11. I am thankful for Doc, who took the nylashard out of my throat and all the doctors that have taken care of me.
12. I am thankful for my travel food bowl so I never go hungry when I'm away from home.
13. I am thankful to share my yard with lots of interesting creatures that give me lots of stuff to sniff when I get free time outside and I wish Mom would quit trying to run the deer off! (Deer poo is TASTY! Yum!)
14. I am thankful for my kongs that occassionally get stuffed with frozen kibbles to fill my tummy.

14 things! Hmmm... now I'm hungry! I think I will try to convince Dad that Mom hasn't fed me breakfast yet!

Happy Thanksgiving!
Love and Licks,
