Hi all!

I’ve been working on my tricks lately,…. well I took a break for a while, but now I am back to learning.

I recently learned to crawl which I will have to show a video of. I promise I will. I learned to catch things too…. treats, tennis balls, cuties, etc.

I’m using that website as a guide to what I want to learn!

Happiness is…..

Freedom to run about

Fetching and carrying a tennis ball

Digging holes in the sand

Chasing Callie and Lily all over the beach

I enjoy the simple, joyful life of being a dog so much that sometimes I forget how good I have it. While at my grandparent’s house this weekend I got to swim 2 days in a row as well as fetch tennis balls out of the water for at least an hour each morning. At first the water is cold, but you quickly forget just how cold it is when you start running around and playing in it.

I decided to show off my happy prance while carrying a tennis ball the first morning:

While my family was out of town for a few days I got to go hang out with my ‘pack’ which includes Lily, Callie, and Izzy.

Here’s me and Lily and Callie hanging out:


I always had someone to play and wrestle with and I was always TIRED at night! I had a wonderful time hanging out with my PACk!

Happy Again

This is how I prove that I am better:

I chase my brother Stubby (fat cat)

I find and chew on my bone

I carry around 1 or more toys in my mouth and attempt to play with everyone

I make all my toys squeak

I wiggle when I come up to you with happiness

I lick your face

I prance around MY house to show everyone around


When I woke up from my much needed day long nap last night I was doing all of these things. Here is some proof:

I’m pretty happy here…. and as you can see I have 3 toys, and I can carry them all at the same time if I want:

This is how you know I’m feeling better! If I’m not doing most of these things you should probably wonder if I am extremely tired, or getting sick.

Needless to say I slept through the night and this morning I am ALL BETTER!

Thank goodness, because I don’t think I could handle another night like Friday night.

Sick Baby

Yea, it happens. I got some kind of a stomach flu…. =( I woke up at 3am and was sick sick sick. I got sick every hour until the morning when my mom took me to the vet to get better. He looked at me and told me there wasn’t really anything terribly wrong with me. He felt my tummy, took my temperature, blood sampled me and everything came back normal. He then gave me an injection for stomach acid and vomiting and I went home and proceeded to sleep the ENTIRE day.

You know how when you are sick you just want to sleep? Well, that is true for puppies as well….. I slept the whole day away only drinking a few little sips of water and eating a few ice cubes and by the end of the day I WAS SO HUNGRY. This is what sick bear looks like:

Honestly, I’m not sure what I ate or if I just caught something…. but I do know that after a day of rest I was pretty much back to normal. I got to eat sweet potatoes and yams this time when I got sick rather than rice because the last time I ate rice I got sick so mommy didn’t want to feed me rice this time around.

By the night time I was really ready to eat and I almost tried to eat the fork that was cutting up my chicken. Prescription for food was 1/2 cup of boiled chicken and 1/2 cup of mashed potatoes (sweet potatoes in my case)…. yum yum yum. Special treatment is amazing!

I made a new friend last night. Remy came over with her family to play and hang out with us. Initially we went to the backyard to get acquainted with one another and she did not like me very much. She kept barking at me which really confused me because I just wanted to run around with her and play. Here is an action shot:

After a little while, and some business later we were let inside and wreaked a bit of havoc on the house running around and chasing one another. After playing and getting to know one another, which is preceded and followed by butt sniffing we started wrestling and playing. I used the butt maneuver on her, but she just maneuvered away from it! After a long play session we got tired, or I did:

She is a little smaller than me, but man is she a scrappy little thing. She really likes to play it just took an initial few minutes to get her used to having a puppy around again. She is only a year and a half old so soon I will be that age and playing with everyone. We both got 2nd and 3rd winds after a bit of a rest:

She was a really fun play partner and I really hope that we get to visit with one another again soon. Man can that girl wrestle and play!!!

I’m hiding somewhere in this warm pile of clean laundry. Stubby is sleeping too, but not on the laundry like me… he is warm enough as it is.
