Routines

It’s been a while since I’ve told any of you what’s going on in my life. I spend 3 weeks with my grandparents and my cousins down in San Diego over the holidays. We played on the beach, wrestled, saw a concert on Christmas eve and generally just enjoyed hanging out.

Now that vacations are over and I’m back with my family I’ve gotten back into my routines with them. I now get to sleep on a bed every night instead of in a crate AND I wake everyone up in the morning.

If the alarm goes off and no one is up, they soon will be. I will lick their hands and put my front paws on the bed until they let me out to play.

I have a good life. I walk, eat, relax, give hugs and licks and play. The backyard is my PLAY ZONE!

Weekends are my favorite time. I get to play play play. In the grass. I roll around, run, sprint in circles, jump, chase the hose. I just can’t get enough of the yard. Lately I’ve been doing most things off-leash as I come when called. I’m a big girl now so I know my name, I know what ‘go inside’ means, I know what ‘let’s go’ means, and I know what ‘go potty’ means.

This morning in the backyard there was a squirrel and 2 birds… a big crow and a blue jay. I think they were looking for worms or something. I was let out and I tried to chase them, but they all got away from me.



My little Boo Boo

So, this weekend I got my nails clipped for the first time.

Left from paw, went well.

Right front paw, went well.

Right back paw, went well.

WHAT HAPPENED TO THE LEFT BACK PAW!?!?!?!?

Yes, my mom cut too far down on one of my nails and I started BLEEDING! It didn’t hurt and I didn’t wimper once bit, but I was bleeding all over the place.

They decided to clean me up and tried to put my nail in this powdery stuff that’s supposed to make me stop bleeding. It did make me stop bleeding…. for a few minutes. Then I wanted to run around and play again and the powder came off and there I was bleeding again. Ugh.

After a few minutes it was decided that I’d get a paper towel on my foot…. well how the heck am I supposed to walk around with a towel on my foot…. here’s how I decided to do it. With a little extra ‘flare’….



Dehydrated Food

Yes, I’m getting bored with my food. I get everything from green beans to apples to chicken to sweet potato puree in my food, but it’s getting boring. My mom took me to get nail clippers at the pet store the other day.

While we were there I proceeded to poop on the floor…. hey, don’t blame me, when you gotta go you gotta go.

Anyway, mom felt so bad about what I had done that she wanted to buy more stuff. She started looking at foods because I’ve been getting another potato and duck food (that I REALLY LIKE) mixed in with my other foods in the morning. Her idea was to give me the same food, but mix in a little ‘wet’ food. Instead of buying canned food she went with dehydrated food.

For dinner that night I didn’t get any, but come breakfast time I ate my ENTIRE meal with only 2 spoonfuls of this stuff. It’s amazingly good and it keeps me interested in my normal food. I’m just like a person, I don’t like to eat the same stuff all day every day. I like a little variety.

Aside from the new food, I also got a new toy. I got to smell and try out all of the ones in the store and I settled on this DUCKIE.

The duckie in the end got a haircut and was taken away from me so that I could preserve his life just a little bit longer.

Painting… that’s what’s been going on in my house. Then there are these sheets that go on the floor to protect. I like to crawl under the sheets…. one time I had to find my way out:

 



Grown up Gremlin

I run run run around the backyard.

Then I roll on my back, make growly noises.

And RUN again.

Then I fetch the ball, and then my mom comes over to play with me.

Today she caught me upside down, and I was into the gremlin mode…



Butt in the Butter

Dad says that I fell with my butt in the butter or “A diminuĂ© avec her butt dans le beurre” in French….. he speaks french.

I actually don’t really believe I’m spoiled, but that I am very well taken care of and well loved. Most of the time I just can’t decide which toy I want to play with so I get as many as I want out and then decide.
