Happy New Year 2010

My mom bought me some boots for winter, and here is a picture of me during the first fitting. I hated the boots, and my mom said I would only have to wear them when it gets really, really cold. So far I haven't had to wear them, but if I do, I plan on pulling them off the first chance I get when I go outside.

My friend Monte stayed at my house for a week in December. Here's a picture of me watching her eat. She guards her food and kind of growls at me if I get too close. After she finishes her dinner, I always check her bowl to see if she missed any.

I was really good during Thanksgiving dinner and only stole one napkin. Christmas was fun. I got a bunch of new toys and I was really good when people were here at my house. Here's a picture of me with two of my new toys. (I pulled all the stuffing out of the green dog toy a couple of days after this picture was taken.)

Winter has been kind of boring so far. I miss my daily walks and playing with my friend, Giggles. When we had a lot of snow, my cool dad made me some paths in the yard so I didn't have to walk through the deep snow. (I did anyway) A couple of months ago, before it started snowing, I started running out of the yard into the woods. I thought I was helping by keeping the yard free of rabbits, but my dad didn't like having to wipe mud off me every night. My mom and dad put up some of the dreaded "flags" in the yard, and now I have to wear my special collar when I go outside. I've decided to stop chasing rabbits for now, but I still chase the birds at the bird feeder. That's what dogs are supposed do, right?

Just trying to get a little attention on a lazy Sunday morning...

New GRIN Friend and Bath Time (again)

I have a new friend at doggie day care. Her name is Tori, and she was adopted recently from GRIN (Golden Retrievers In Need). She is really shy, and doesn't play with the other dogs yet, but she is getting more comfortable with us each day.

Since I go to doggie day care three times a week, I have to have a bath about once a month. I recently had to have a bath before we had a picnic. My mom took some embarrassing pictures:

This is what I do after the bath to get rid of that "clean" smell...
The best part after the bath is getting brushed...

Christmas in August

My mom ordered me some toys and when the box arrived, I was allowed to pick one toy. The box is in the basement now, and whenever I go downstairs, I sit by the box hoping to get another toy.

Patrolling the Yard

I love to chase animals. Rabbits, squirrels, chipmunks, birds, cats... especially cats. Recently I saw the neighbor cat walking through his yard. That cat just annoys me. My mom let me out and I ran out of my yard and into the cats backyard and onto the neighbors deck. This is where the story gets sketchy because my parents couldn't see what happened. The next thing I remembered, I was running back home yelping. They couldn't find any blood, so I guess I was ok. My girlfriend Giggles and her dad came over to check on me. I was fine and they told us the cat was fine. I heard my mom say "I guess it's time to put the flags back up to remind him where the line is." I'm not sure what that means, but they haven't put that fence collar on me in a long time because I usually stay in the yard.

We have a lot of chipmunks and squirrels in our yard. Here is a picture of me and a squirrel in a staring contest. I was standing really still and the squirrel kept looking in the window at me. My mom let me out and I chased it up a tree.

My New Furniture

My mom bought some new furniture and I immediately made sure it was comfortable...

I also showed them that I have no problem fitting on this new footstool...
