I can be Grateful

I went for my trial day at the grateful dogs clubhouse this morning at 8am…. I wasn’t happy about getting in the car because that’s when I get to take my first nap of the day. Right when everyone leaves for work and the house is quiet… I go back to sleep. Ah, the life of a dog.

Needless to say I was swooped up and put into the back of the car for transport…. and finally I realized that I was being transported to the Grateful Dog Clubhouse. Apparently playing with other dogs is good for me as I grow up.

My mom picked me up at about 1pm after I got to play for 5 HOURS!

The people watching over me at Grateful Dogs told my mom that they were worried that I would wear myself out with playing, but I’m pretty sure that will never happen as I LOVE TO PLAY! They also thought that I got in over my head a little bit because I instigated playing with multiple dogs and when they all played back with me I got a little intimidated with all of the attention.

The good news is I can go back to Doggie Daycare any time I want. I am welcome at the Grateful Dogs Playhouse!!!! I can’t wait to go back. =)

Veggies are GOOD

My mom grows all sorts of veggies outside of our house. Recently she has been giving me snap peas. There is a huge vine outside that they grow on. I am not allowed to pick my own because then I might destroy the whole plant so if she is feeling nice she picks me a few and hands them to me and I happily accept.

Other than that I have been eating celery too, which is just crunch…. almost no flavor, but still fun to eat.

Jump, Jump, Jump!

I didn’t have a toy to chase or carry around with me so instead I got a STICK. I went to Idyllwild again this weekend and ran around the town a little bit. Everyone was really nice to me and the weather wasn’t too bad. I was REALLY good in the car this time. We didn’t have room for my crate so I sat on the back seat and didn’t even get sick on the road like I have in the past.

I’m learning more and more every day, however sometimes I get too excited on the leash and I run really fast. I am working on it however.

Ice Cubes

My mom started giving me ice cubes a little while ago. She drops them in my water bowl and I fish for them. In the process of getting them out I blow bubbles in my water and get the ice cubes out so that I can chew on them. Apparently all dogs love ice cubes, so if you have a dog try to give him or her a cube or two on a hot day and see what happens.

My brother is SO fun to play with. He lets me chase him and lately he has been walking over to me and smelling me. I think he is getting happier to be around me. All it took was a little time.

This is a picture of him sleeping on one of my beds, and me smelling him to see if he will let me. I think he loves me now.

Apparently a lot of people get together on this day to celebrate. I’m not sure exactly what they are celebrating, I just know that they make food that smells good and I get to play with other fun dogs. Saxon wore a green scarf and I wore my collar that has a little green on it. (I didn’t want to get pinched)

Saxon and I tired each other out playing so much throughout the night. It’s so fun to have dog friends and last night I learned that I can have dog and people friends at the same time. I went to Saxon and then when my mom called me I went to her. It’s nice to have so many fun people around. I was pretty pooped when I got in the car and I passed out:

That is me in the back of the car curled up into a ball taking a nap before I got home and went to my real bed. I slept until 630am (which is really late for me!).

My new best friend. I learned to play tug with him, we jumped all over each other…. chased each other around the house and he even gave me a little kiss on the nose.

He is in training to be a guide dog, so he can’t wrestle with me like Callie does, but he plays really well with toys. During this particular play time we were playing with a little plush toy and I was sort of winning, but he is bigger and has been playing like this for longer, so ultimately he won out.

And here’s a close up of the action.
