Peoples are great! They leave all sorts of stuff lying around for us puppies to find. Someone left this cow egg (well, it smells like a cow and it's round - what else could it be?) out at the park for me. So the tall guy took me to this place where it looks like a big swimming pool without any water and he threw the ball and I ran and got it and brought it back to him. For some reason, he kept throwing it and I had to keep going to get it. I told him he should hold on to it so he wouldn't lose it, but he just didn't seem to understand. He said it was hard to get a picture of me when I was running, so I told him that it was ok, everybody knows what I look like by now! But we really had fun. I hope he brings me (and the cow egg) back again tomorrow!

Me on my spot!
I got an 'A' in spot.

I graduated from puppy school on Saturday. The tall guy said I did really good (note from tall guy: except for the 3 minute down and stay - we'll have to keep working on that one!). I now know how to do a bunch of stuff, except when I forget. The tall guy said next we're going to rattlesnake school, so I hope that I do good there too, although I don't know how they are going to get those rattlesnakes to sit!

The ball is always oranger
on the other side of the fence!

Hmmmmm. Maybe if I use this foot and pull this way....no wait. What if I try to turn the ball....no wait. What if I......

I know I'm not supposed to be on the bed, but I just felt like the tag on this pillow was mocking me. Penalty of law indeed!

I did not know I could do this!

Sometimes, I amaze myself. I did not know that I could stick my nose under the water! But now I do. So if you have lost anything on the bottom of your pool, just let me know, and I'll come see if I can sniff it out for you!

I just washed my hair...

Sometimes, the strangest things happen to me. I was just minding my own business at the dog park and this huge fuzzy comes and sits down on my head! I think I look like Tina Turner in Thunderdome. But he was very nice and got up when I asked him to!

You can get all wet and then jump in and out and get the tall guy all wet too! Then you get to play with the towels while the tall guy is trying to dry you off! Then you get to run in the house and rub your wet head all over the carpet. Then you get to lay in the sun until you get dry. Then you get to start again...

My new toy!

Hey, you should see what the tall guy got me (and it's not even my birthday). It's a fabulous swimming pool! I didn't even know you could BUY a swimming pool, but the tall guy said if I was good while he was gone, he would buy me one and DARN IF HE DIDN'T!

But wait, I can hear you say, I see something in the near the tree in your video that looks awfully like your new pool. Silly peoples, that is my sandbox (so I can dig and dig and not dig up the new yard that is coming soon - the tall guy said it was going to be something called GRASS). So even though it may look like my new pool, it is really my old sandbox. I've had that for almost a week now!

So, here is me trying out my new pool. I found out that if I stick my nose under the water, I can make bubbles and it makes the tall guy laugh. He said he can make bubbles in the water too, but I don't think my pool is big enough for him!

Peoples are Great!

Peoples leave all sorts of things at the dog park for the puppies to play with. And they don't even mind if you play with something that isn't even yours! I found this really cool yellow ball that someone had bit almost in two and got to play with it for a long time. The tall guy wouldn't let me bring it home with me - he told me to leave it so that some other puppy could play with it. That's cool. I've got a lot of toys at home that I can play with. Maybe I'll bring one next time we come to the park and let the other puppies play with it!

I've got my basketball ready in case one of the coaches needs me for a substitute during the b'ball tourney!

Speaking of March Madness, the tall guy FINALLY got back today. He said he went somewhere called the 'Grand Canyon'. I told him I didn't think it couldn't be too grand if they didn't allow puppies to go. He said it was just a big hole in the ground and I had to remind him how much I LOVE holes in the ground. He said that puppies had to stay in puppy jail while all the peoples got to look at the hole. I'm just happy that he's back home. I think I'll show him how happy I am about 3AM tonight when I jump on his head while he's sleeping.

Do you see that spot?

I wonder what that spot is. Maybe if I stare at it long enough, I can figure it out. Then again, maybe if I keep looking at it, it will turn into a cookie and I can eat it.

I'll keep a lookout for the puppy park!

I am very intense when we are looking for the puppy park. I have to make sure I let the tall guy know when I see some other puppies for me to play with. I also remind him when to use his turn signal and when there are puppies in the car next to us!

I do all of this by barking furiously and running around in the back of the car. I can tell the tall guy really appreciates it when I do that cause he gets excited too and starts yelling my name! I guess my last name is 'STOP!!!'.

Don't Get Me Started!

I was looking out the door today and what did I see? Some thing* had decided to come into MY yard and just make itself at home. Well, I wasn't going to sit by and do nothing. I gave a big old gruff bark and the tall guy came running over to see what was going on! He said I had never barked like that before in my entire life! I guess he was very happy that I was guarding the house. Needless to say, it went away. I guess I'm getting better at being a guard puppy!

* I had the tall guy take a picture of the thing. Here it is! It had better not come back to my house again!!

Put me in Coach, I'm ready to play!!

Although how the tall guy expects me to play while I'm wearing all this stuff, I'll never know. I feel like Russell Crowe!

Have you ever had a bath at a car wash?

Well, lo and behold! Right near where I live is a place next to the car wash called a DOG wash! You can take your puppy there and get him all soapy and wet and not mess up your house. THEN, the best part is you can use the vacumn hose on him and blow him all dry (although the tall guy says it doesn't really get you dry - it just moves the water around). I sometimes have to go to the dog wash after I've been playing at the puppy park, because, just to be honest, some of the other puppies have a tendency to slobber all over you when they play. But I don't mind, since they can't help it. Evidently, the tall guy thinks that puppy slobber is something special called STINK, cause when we leave the park, he keeps telling me that I stink. Well, if I stink, it's not my fault.

By the way, do you like the hat that the dog in the DOG WASH picture is wearing? The tall guy says I don't need one, as he is very careful about not getting water in my ears, but I think he should buy me one so I can look like the puppy on the Dog Wash sign! Send him a message and tell him what you think!

Happy Walk, happy walk!

I don't know how you peoples do it! You only have two feet. Four feet is much better. And you don't even have a tail. How do you keep your balance?

The tall guy said I did REALLY good at school today. He gave me some apple when I got home, so I must have done something special. I've only got two more classes to go, so I'll miss all the other puppies in my class. But the tall guy said we would be taking another class on rattlesnake avoidance. I don't know what a rattlesnake is and why I should avoid it, but I guess that's why I have to go to school. If you have any rattlesnakes at your house, don't send them to me!

Just what do you think you're doing?

I finally find a good place to get a nap and you come in here flashing a light in my eyes. Yes, I know I'm in your bedroom, but really, isn't it MY bedroom too? And yes, I see your books right there next to me. And no, I'm not going to eat any of them. I USED to do that, but I don't do it anymore. Well, maybe I might TASTE of one ever now and again, just to see if the quality of ink they are using is good quality. Besides, maybe I'm trying to get ready for the LSATs.

As you can probably tell...

I love going to the park. The tall guy takes me whenever he's done reading the Interwebs. You can find all sorts of stuff at the park - today I found a ball that didn't have no fuzz! I also found a plastic cup and a LOT of sticks. You can also find a lot of other stuff, but that's just because all the peoples aren't as nice as the tall guy!

So, if the weather is nice where you are today, head out to your local park. And make sure you take your puppy with you!

Past, Present, and Future!

Wow - 3 puppies in one picture! I told the tall guy to take this picture of the guys (well, one of the guys is a girl) that I met at the park yesterday. The little girl is 14 weeks old. I don't even remember being that little. The big guy is 3 years old. Me - I'm 6.5 months old - that's like a lifetime to me! I think the little puppy is named Gracie and the big guy is named Lobo, and their peoples were really nice too. Gracie didn't get to play much because she hasn't had all of her shots, but I told her that it didn't hurt at all!

These guys were really nice. They didn't even mind that I got a bit bouncy because I was so excited.

I'm learning that you should always look both ways before you cross the street and let me tell you, it's not easy!
Some peoples don't pay any attention to puppies when they are in the crosswalk, so I just let them go on by before I step out into the road.

Amazingly, no puppies were hurt during the making of this video.

And, I kicked butt! :)

What does a guy have to do to get a pillow around here?

The good thing about my house is that I have lots of places to sleep. I even have a lounge chair that I can sleep in outside. And believe me, sleeping is good after a hard day of getting the tall guy off his computer and outside to play!

The tall guy said I did really good at school on Saturday. We are learning how to wait on our spot when we are left alone. I'm pretty good at it, but not all the time. We're also learning how to heel. Just wait until I find someone who is sick!

Dog for a Day!

According to the Googles, there used to be a television program called 'Queen For A Day'. Evidently, they gave a bunch of stuff to people who went on the show. Well, I've decided they should have a show called 'Dog for a Day', in which you come to my house and bring me toys and cookies. I will wait for you in the tall guy's chair and if you bring me something really good, I will let you take your picture with me so you can show all your friends.

By the way, I know I may look older, but I am really only six months old (well 6 months and 12 days).

My Favorite Toy!

I love to go into the bedroom and find all these great toys. I think this one is called 'For the love of God, would you please stop eating my underwears'. The tall guy keeps hiding them and I keep finding them. For some reason, he gets really fussy whenever I find them, but I think that's just because he hasn't learned how to hide them very well! He has another toy that I like to play with called 'Do not eat my sox'. He doesn't hide those very well either. OR, maybe I'm just a really good finder!

One of my most favorite things to do!

I always have fun when the tall guy takes me to the dog park. It's fun when I can find another puppy who wants to run with me. There were some really fast dogs there today. The tall guy says I'll be able to run faster when I get bigger - so for now, I just run as fast as I can.

I was playing with this puppy and you just THINK you can come up here and get all in our business! I will smack the bleach right out of your hair!

:) Just kidding. We were all playing very nicely!

What does a guy have to do...
to get a drink of water around here? We went out to the park this afternoon and I don't know what happened but all of a sudden, I got hot! The tall guy said it was 90 degrees so that was why it was so hot. I told him that was too many degrees and he needed to give some of them back, and he agreed. So we went and sat in the shade and watched some peoples play with a ball. They aren't nearly as good as I am - they couldn't even run back with the ball, they had to keep throwing it to each other. I offered to help them, but the tall guy said they didn't need any help. Well, it sure looked to me like they could use some!

Sticks Is Good!

Next time you're out on a walk or at your local park, you should pick up a stick and give it a chew. There's nothing quite as relaxing as wolfing down a walnut, biting a birch, or eating an elm! Not only is it fun, it contains no calories*, for those times when you're watching your weight. Better still, if you're out in the forest, just find a tree and gnaw.

*Update: Well, I'm just gobsmacked - it appears that wood DOES contain calories. But I still don't think it will make you fat!

What a Great Day!

Yesterday was a GREAT day. First we went to the park and I got to play with a bunch of other puppies! It was great. I love to rassle. Then, I went to school and learned about my spot. The tall guy said I did really good. Then after a nice nap, we got to go to the other park and I got to run around and talk to a bunch of peoples. They all said I was a very nice puppy! I hope all your days are great days too!
