Snugglin', I mean "Hangin'" with Uncle Bob

Dear mommy and daddy,

Today Aunt Molly had an appointment, so Uncle Bob and I spent some quality time together.  Aunt Molly called it snuggling, but Uncle Bob insisted that we were hangin' out together.  We went out the road and I got to run around.  I stayed pretty close to Uncle Bob so he let me roam.  It was cold, rainy and windy, but I played for a while.  Then Uncle Bob started a fire, but I was too cold, so I ran to the truck, whined a little and then we headed home. 

Uncle Bob made something called a prime rib roast for him and Aunt Molly.  All I know about it is they gave me the bone and it was de-lious!  I acted a bit crazy about it, but what can I say, it was so good!

I miss you like crazy, Roscoe

Friday Night with Aunt Molly and Uncle Bob

Dear mommy and daddy,

Aunt Molly told me you made it to Anchorage, I was really happy to hear that.  I wish I could have visited my cousins too, but I am having a fine time visiting with my Aunt & Uncle.  Tonight Aunt Molly and I went for a walk.  Douglas Highway was a bit busy and it freaked me out a little, but Aunt Molly talked to me the entire way home, that made me feel better.

When we got home I ran around the place like a crazy man.  You can run circles around their place, it's pretty fun.  I even jumped over Aunt Molly a couple of times, cuz she was in the path.  After that I was pretty tuckered out.

I went and found my "old spot".  Last time I was here I sat up here behind Steven, Aunt Molly has pictures or Steven and I.

Aunt Molly made me take this picture.   I know I am cute, but I really don't know if I can handle having my picture taken so much.

When Uncle Bob got home we all cuddled on the couch for a while, then called it a night.  I miss you.

Love, Roscoe

ps Aunt Molly thinks the reason I ate the cat food was because I am confused.  Since my food is in a cat container.

All spruced up for my weekend with Aunt Molly....

Wahoooo!!!!! Tomorrow my parents leave for Anchorage and I'll be staying with Aunt Molly. Aunt Molly has lots of fun stuff planned for us! I'm sure we'll get to snuggle on the couch, go for walks and play at Sandy Beach.
On Saturday I get to spend the whole day with Uncle Bob and then on Tuesday I'm going to meet a friend of Mommy and Aunt Molly's and have a play date with her and her kids. I am going to be one worn out puppy when Mommy comes home. I'm soooo excited!!!

Instructions for Aunt Molly

Dear Aunt Molly,
I can't wait to come live with you for a few days! Mommy said I should write to you and remind you what I like and tell you all about my routines. I've been a little bit of a punk at home so Mommy hopes I'm good for you and Uncle Bob.

*Please feed me a little scoop of dry food in the morning and a scoop of dry food mixed with wet food at night. (Feel free to have Uncle Bob drop food on the kitchen floor while cooking. :-) )
*When I come inside from going potty I get a little treat. You can also tell me "door" and I'll close the door behind us ;-)
* Mommy will bring my kennel and you can put me in there whenever you need to. I haven't been in there for a while so I might whine but just ignore me.

If I think of anything else I'll be sure to write you again.

I'm exhausted!!!

Holy doggy bones!!! Mommy took me snowshoeing today AND night sledding! I don't see very well at night so I was really confused at first. There were people going down a big hill on plastic and I wasn't sure if they wanted me to chase them or if I needed to run away from them. A few of them almost ran me over and I had to run my fastest to stay out of their way. After I got used to it I had a lot of fun but boy am I tired!!!!

snowshoeing adventure!

Today mommy and aunty Stephie took me out snowshoeing. I'd been cooped up indoors all weekend so I was happy to get outside!!! It was my first time at Montana Creek Trail and I liked it way better than Salmon Creek Dam (that's where we went snowshoeing last time). Mommy says this winter is looking like a good winter for snow. I hope she takes me out a lot during Christmas break!!! I love snowshoeing!

Healing quite nicely!

It's been about a week since I had my surgery and I have to say....I'm healing quite nicely! I've had to wear my cone around A LOT but today mommy took it off and I left my stitches alone! It was so nice to have that thing off my neck! I've been laying pretty low lately but today I had a ton of energy so mommy and daddy took me for a long drive, a sunny walk and then mommy chased me at the field while daddy worked in his classroom.
Mommy told me yesterday that she messed up on the dates and it's actually  THURSDAY that I get my stitches out! I'm so excited to be done with this cone forever!!! Thanks for all the concern from my human and doggy friends!

My first surgery

  I've had a growth on my leg for a few months and it just keeps getting bigger. It wasn't hurting but Mommy and Daddy were worried about it and my skin was starting to look red and stretched. Mommy scheduled my surgery and on Thursday morning they took me to the vet. I was pretty whiney when I went there but the doctors took really good care of me.
My vet was nice and he called mommy during my surgery to tell her that I was doing well but they'd found another lump in my tummy. He removed both lumps, cleaned my teeth and trimmed my nails. When I woke up he gave me lots of pets and a little treat to eat. Mommy came to pick me up and listened to the vet tell her about my surgery. He said the lump on my leg looked weird and he wanted to have it checked to make sure it wasn't cancerous. Mommy and daddy will get the results soon. 
Mommy and Daddy laugh everytime they look at me and my cone. They say I look ridiculous and they find it hilarious whenever I bump into thing. They told me they'd take off this stupid cone if I promised not to chew my leg. It's so nice having this thing off! I havent been chewing my leg but when they go to work they put this darn cone back on. I can't wait to get these stitches out....two weeks to go....the countdown is on.

I'm glad you find me amusing.....

I've been licking my paw a lot lately. I don't know just itches so I lick it. BUT, I've licked it so much there's some skin coming off and now mommy's all worried about me. When mommy starts to worry about me daddy always does something to fix me so that she feels better. His latest solution to my paw problem was to tie a piece of rag around my paw and tape it up.
This solved the problem but it makes me walk funny. Mommy and daddy thought my walk was HILARIOUS and they laughed soooo hard. In fact, I can't remember the last time I heard mommy laugh for so long. Aunt Molly came over and mommy made me walk over to her just so the two of them could giggle about my funny walk. I'm glad they all find this so amusing but all I want to do is lick my paw. Sometimes these humans drive me CRAZY!!!! Woof Woof!

I miss Aunt Molly

So, I've been a real slacker about blogging. It seems I've gotten lazy lately but am determined to turn over a new leaf. I'm going to take more pictures, spend more time blogging and EXERCISE!!!!
Daddy took me to the vet on Friday (I'm ok, just a little fatty growth thing on my leg that will eventually have to be removed but all is good right now) and the Vet said I was FAT!!! Now, there was a time when Mommy and Daddy would've gotten mad and defended me by reminding the Vet that I am part BEAGLE!!! But, I have put on a few extra and Mommy and Daddy are always getting after Grandpa about giving me treats (oooooh, I LOOOOOVE grandpa!!!)
 I've been put on a pretty strict diet and mommy and daddy have been giving me a walk almost every night. I have to stay on my leash because Mommy read somewhere that I get more of a workout that way.
I wish Aunt Molly was in town so she could take me down to Sandy Beach where I could run free and sniff all the other dogs! Hurry home Aunt Molly!

An afternoon at the beach

Today my Aunt Molly stopped by to take me to the beach.  She finally had some time to spend with me, boy that other "Dog" sure does keep her busy.  First she took me to her house and while she ate lunch I found a few treats for me under her coach.  Then we walked to Sandy Beach.  There were lots of dogs with their people.  I got a little whiney because I wanted to play with all of them.

 I did get to a little, but boy do those big dogs like to sniff me and sometimes it freaks me out and Aunt Molly too!  So Aunt Molly and I laid in the sand, I did a little digging and we just enjoyed the view.

Afterwards she took me home and I bolted out of the truck and started sniffin' like a crazy dog.  I had fun at the beach, but it sure is nice to be back home with my Grandpa Terry.

PS Daddy, win us some money so you can buy me lots of doggy treats!  I am all out!!!

I learned a new trick!!! Mommy and Daddy have been teaching me how to close the door. Their hope is that after I go potty I'll be able to close the door behind me. It took me a little while to figure it out but I'm starting to get it. Tonight I went potty and closed the door all by myself while mommy and daddy were sitting on the couch. I got a really big treat afterwards and soooo many loves. It's so fun to learn new tricks!
I also got to see aunt Molly tonight. That was pretty fun, I love seing aunt Molly ;-)

Wow, I haven't written since CHRISTMAS?????!!!!!! A big apology to all my loyal readers (hahaha, all two of you!). Let me tell you what's been going on in my life since Christmas time....
*EATING!! MMMM, I love food and grandpa knows it! He gives me little treats all day long and I love love love them!
*Sleeping. I sleep a lot during the day. I finally have someone to put my sleepy spells on during the day while mommy & daddy are at work.
*Playing...I've been playing with Chicken-bird a lot. I ripped open my latest Chicken-bird so mommy had to do surgery on him. Thank goodness for ducktape!

hmmmm, that's about it! This dog's life is pretty sweet right now!
