I love this thing called Christmas!

Whatever this Christmas thing is that humans celebrate I sure do love it! On Christmas Eve my Aunt Molly came over and gave me a present. It was a PIG SNOUT and boy was it delicious! It tasted so crispy and delicious I couldn't help but wolf it right down! I feel bad because I know she wanted to pet and love on me but all I could think about was eating that snout! Ahhh, thank you Molly!
Later that night my family opened their presents and I opened mine. Mommy & Daddy bought me a new Chicken Bird because I've destroyed my other ones. Chicken Bird is the best toy ever invented! I love it!

Later that night mommy took me for a walk at Twin Lakes. I hadn't been out for awhile so it was fun to run and play. There wasn't anyone else on the trail so mommy let me off my leash and I ran so fast in the snow!!!

I also got lots of yummy treats to eat...Baby Chance sent me a big ol' bag of yummie chummies but mommy won't let me open them until I finish my jerkey treats. I really do love this Christmas thing!

This is the life

After the crazy month my mommy and daddy have had it was really nice to just snuggle on the couch with daddy. Today is only Day One of their vacation so I'm hoping for lots more snuggle time soon.

thank goodness for my nanny

My parents have been MIA this week. They leave early in the morning and don't come home until late at night. Thank goodness someone is there to feed me dinner at night (although, he forgets to give me wet food and all I get is the dry stuff!!!) and let me out to go potty. They promise that this week will be much better and after this week they'll be home ALL day with me for the next two weeks! I can't wait for that! Mommy promises lots of walks and maybe even a snowshoeing adventure. That will be GREAT! Until then I'm just lucky I have a nanny to watch me. Maybe my Aunt Molly will be able to go for a walk or hike with me too??? What do you think Aunt Molly???

Sorry I haven't written...

Mommy & Daddy have been having fun playing with me. They think it's cute to tie things around my head and make me look like a girl. It's not very nice and I don't like it at all! BUT, they have started playing a new game with me called "fishing for Roscos." They've made a little fishing pole and tied a toy mouse to the end of the string. They throw it out and watch me chase after it. As soon as I catch it they yell, "Rosco on! Rosco on!". I play this game until they're worried that my heart might explode and they make me stop.

Mommy & Daddy have also been talking about getting me a sister. They've been looking at Jack Russel/Beagles on the internet and daddy found one that he thinks would be perfect for our family. Her name is Diana and she has lots of energy and loves to run! We can't get her until we sell our condo so I hope we hurry up and find a buyer for this place!!!

We just know....

Call it our psychic powers, animal intuition or any other name you can think of. When you're hurting, we know. We can feel your sadness eminating through your usually happy soul. We don't always understand why you're in pain but we recognize the feeling and will do our best to comfort you. My chicken bird always makes me feel better and this is what I offer you. Pet to with me....I promise that you'll feel better. XOXO

I'm soooo hungry!!!

I'm starving but my parents won't feed me!!! I went to the vet today because I've had a hard time pooping and he told my daddy that I had a blockage in my tummy. He said not to feed me for 24 hours (TWENTY FOUR HOURS WITHOUT FOOD???!!!!!!!!!) gave me a bunch of pills and lubricant and told me I'd live.
I'm so hungry..all I can think about is my yummy beef stew canned food and chicken flavored potty treats. ooooh please feed me!

what the heck??

I'm not sure what's going on.... our house is a mess. Mommy and Daddy tell me that they're "remodeling" the bathrooms and now daddy is fixing our couch. All I know is that there is no room to chase my duck in this place! I feel like mommy and daddy are planning on going somewhere but they swear they're not.

My neighbor Kelsey came over today and said she thought I was looking a little chunkier. I probably have put on a little weight since our vacation. There were so many great beaches and fields where I could run all day! I've been getting walked everyday but it's just not the same.... Maybe someday we'll have a big ol' yard and I can run all day!

I sure do miss life on the road =(

My favorites...

I finally discovered the reason humans like vacations so much. They're fun and you get to do so many new and adventurous things while you're gone. Here are a few of the fun things I did on the trip....

Ate lunch on the beach...
Took turns sleeping with the family....

had my own bed in a few hotels...

Sat on Grampy's lap...he has a good lap for doggies...

Slept in my tent....

Shopped for toys with mommy & daddy. I can't believe I got to go INSIDE a store!
and played with the toy duck daddy carved for me.
What a great great trip. I can't wait to go on our next adventure!

I'm baaaaaaacccckkkkk!

Holy cow! I had nooooo idea what fun this "road trip" thing could be. It was awesome! It was unbelievable! It was the best thing EVER! I did so many things, met so many people and smelled so many new smells while we were traveling.

I loved driving and looking out the window at all the new sites. Most of the time I'd sit on mommy or daddy's lap but I also had my kennel to sleep in if I needed some space.

It was fun stopping at the beaches along the coast and running! It was kindof weird running in the sand but I got used to it. There were some places that we went to that were WAY too hot for me! Mommy loved it and would lay outside all day but me and daddy hid indoors where there was air conditioning!

I had the best time with my cousins! They chased me around and walked me every day! I think I even lost some weight on this trip!

I'll be posting more pictures and telling you more stories about my adventures but right now I'm off to snuggle with daddy and catch up on my sleep.

Woof Woof!

I LOVE this place!!!

Oh my gosh!!!! Mommy and Daddy have been telling me for awhile that I was going to love this road trip thing. They were soooooo right! We're staying at this huge campground where I spend my time running and chasing birds. It is sooooo perfect! I love being free and having all this room to run and play!
Last night grandpa came out and we had a fire. He has the best lap ever! Mommy and Daddy also took me to a store and I was allowed to go inside. They bought me some new toys and a new leash and collar (Mommy told me that it'll match Uncle Josh's wedding colors but she said not to tell Daddy otherwise he'll think it's girly).
This is definitely the best trip ever!!!

I love summer! Mommy and Daddy stay home with me all day and we play, play, play!!! A couple nights ago Mommy and Daddy took me out to the beach for a bonfire. I got to sniff around the beach, play frisbee with my friend Noah and love on Aunt Molly.
We've also been taking lots of walks this summer. It seems like Mommy drags me down to Twin Lakes at least once a day. Sometimes she ties me up at the park so Erin's boys can play. I just hang out and watch the people walk by. Mommy says she's really proud of me for being such a good pup while I wait. I'm tempted to chew through my leash and go play with them but I know that would make her mad.
Mommy keeps telling me that we're leaving on something called a Road Trip soon. I'm not sure what it is but she tells me that we'll be driving and visiting lots of people. I think that I will like it because I LOVE driving and LOVE people!

I'm soooo hot!

It has been hot, hot, hot here!!! I love all the sunshine but it makes for one hot puppy! This week I had so much fun with my parents! They took me out for long walks and drives every night. Mommy even took me to play with my Logie friend (on a school night!!!).
I'm not sure how I'm going to survive on this little road trip my parents are planning to take me on. I made daddy carry me during our walk today while I huffed and puffed because it was just too darn hot!

the battle

Daddy and I have been battling over his leather chair. I just noticed how cool and comfortable this chair is! Now that I know how great Daddy's chair is I refuse leave it alone. Every time he gets up I race over and jump in it. I think he's starting to get a little annoyed but I WILL NOT give up!!! (plus, I'm way too cute to hate)

kitty photoshoot

Dude will be going home soon. Her mommy & daddy are back in Ketchikan. They have a few things to finish up before Dude goes home and they all head out to Whale Pass. Tonight we had a little photoshoot. Enjoy!

what's wrong with my Linus friend??

Linus came home LATE Monday night and slept in my kennel all day. When Daddy came home from work on Tuesday he noticed that Linus was having a hard time walking and couldn't jump up to get his food. He was worried but didn't know what to do. He told me "we need mommy...she always knows how to take care of us." So, when mommy came home from her jewelry making class she checked on Linus and then called the vet.
Mommy & Daddy rushed Linus to the vet and I was very confused. What was wrong with him? Was my friend going to come back home? Linus NEVER goes to the vet! I hoped everything was ok.
When Mommy & Daddy came back home they told me that Linus had a puncture wound in his paw and that I'd have to be gentle with him for a couple of weeks. They put him in my kennel so he could have some quiet time and fed him dinner. I hope he gets better soon so we can play again!!!

laying low..

We've all been laying low and hanging out this weekend. Mommy took me on a walk this morning and let me play at the twin lakes park. Usually, I have to be tied up to the fence because dogs aren't allowed in the park. I had so much fun playing with my Noah friend and looking for food at the park. I hope we can do it again soon!

I can't wait for summer!

Mommy and Daddy have been talking a lot about summer break and all the adventures we'll go on. They say we'll run around on a lot of beaches, drive and see all the new sights, visit family I haven't met yet and RELAX!!! This weekend I got a little taste of sunshine and beaches so I can't WAIT till summer!!!

going on an adventure!

Mommy just told me that I'll be going on a trip this summer! Last summer they left me here with Aunt Molly while they went to Australia. I had the best time with Aunt Molly but sure did miss my parents.
Mommy says were going to go on the ferry then drive down south. She says there are lots of cool things to see and lots of new things to SMELL!!!! Daddy says that he can't wait until I see my first cow. (What in the world is a cow???!!!!)
I also get to see my little cousin Chance again because his mommy & daddy are getting married! Mommy says that I can probably go to the wedding because it's an outdoor wedding. I'll just have to sit with grammy and grampy and NO barking!
OOOOOOHHHHH, I can't wait to be a traveling dog!

my spot

my sweet mommy has been doing a lot of spring cleaning lately. She's made our little house look all nice and spotless. She rearranged some furniture and made me this bed fit for a king. It's the most comfortable spot in the world...I love it.

Linus makes himself at home anywhere.

where is everyone?

What the heck is going on?? Where's mommy? Where's daddy? Mommy keeps telling me about some crap fair (or is it craft fair?? who knows..) and daddy went to some place called Reno. It sure is quiet around here.
I've been spending a lot of time with my Walter-friend. His mommy & daddy went to California. Walter says he hates it when they leave. He doesn't eat much or drink much when his parents leave so mommy says I need to play with him and cheer him up a little.

The adventures of Chicken Bird

I'm still loving my chicken toy. Yesterday mommy took me outside to throw Chicken Bird in the parking lot! She threw it...I grabbed it and sped off into the woods. I was so excited to have Chicken Bird in my mouth but then I smelled something good and dropped my new toy. I spent some time sniffing all the yummy smells until mommy yelled at me to come back home.
After all those yummy smells I couldn't find Chicken Bird again. We went back inside and mommy told daddy that it was a dumb idea to take Chicken Bird outside. They told me that Chicken Bird was lost forever because I didn't take care of him. However, today when they came home from work daddy had Chicken Bird in his hand!!!
I was sooo excited!!!! Mommy told me that daddy climbed through the woods to get Chicken Bird back for me. I love my parents and I love love love Chicken Bird!!!

I'll kill this bird!

I went shopping with daddy tonight and he bought me the best toy ever. I know I've praised a few toys here on my blog but this is seriously the ULTIMATE! It's a flying bird with a hidden sling shot. Daddy flings it and it makes noises like a rooster. I can't put it down. I've been gnawing on it all night. I even bark when daddy tries to take it away. This bird is mine! How long until I destroy it?? Any guesses?

She's such a girl

Lately, Dude has been watching mommy put on her makeup in the mornings. She'll hop up on the sink and look at mommy in the mirror while she gets ready for work. Sometimes I forget Dude is a girl (because of how she likes to play rough and kill birds) but then she does something like this and I remember that she's just a girly girl. Maybe mommy can get a picture of it tomorrow morning.

Monday night is TACO night!

Monday night is taco night in this house! I love taco night because sometimes mommy will give me a little turkey meat before she puts in the taco seasoning. I always wait by the fridge incase she accidentally drops something. Well, tonight my waiting paid off! She dropped a whole can of olives and I was quick to the rescue. We don't use vacuums here, I take care of all the spilled messes.

I'll leave you with some pictures of my Dude friend. She was being all loveable today so daddy tried petting her.
She was sweet and lovey for a moment...then turned into.......KILLER ATTACK CAT!!!!

Don't mess with the Dude-ster!!!

New frisbee!

Here's the toy I've been loving lately. It's the lid from a sour cream container but daddy thought it'd make a great frisbee for me! He was right, it's light and I LOVE to chase after it! Happy Friday! Hope you have your own favorite toy to play with this weekend!

Just hangin' out...

We've been laying low and hanging out lately. Mommy & daddy have been gone a lot so we just sleep, relax and snuggle in our warm and cozy home. Mommy got a new sweatshirt for her birthday and I love it as much as she does. I love it because it's snuggly.......she loves the thumbholes....
