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.

Sweet as Honey

There's a new blog out there written by Honey, another GRIN dog. Her blog is located at Honey's Blog. Check it out!

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...

Doggie Sleep Over

My friend Giggles stayed at our house for two nights in April. We had so much fun playing that we were forced to take time outs to rest.
She wasn't tall enough to use my food bowls.
I tried to tell her that I'm not allowed up on the couch like this, but my mom let her!

Happy April

I had to have a bath this weekend because we had people over for Easter dinner. (my mom says doggie day care makes me smell really bad) This is a picture of me after my bath:

During Easter dinner, I was really good and didn't steal any napkins or food, but I did try to sniff any food that came near me.

I went to the vet last week for my yearly check-up. I weigh 84 lbs., so now I'm on a diet to lose a few pounds.

There's a new dog in the neighborhood named Dixie. Dixie is kind of rough when she plays, so I haven't played with her much. Here is a picture of me with Dixie:

I heard my parents talking about my friend, Giggles, coming over for a few days this week while her family goes on vacation. I can't wait!

Eddy's Birthday (March 3)

On my birthday I went to doggie day care and played with my friends. When I got home, my mom gave me a special dinner. Here is a picture of me licking the spoon...
After dinner, my parents said it was too cold for a walk (19 degrees), so my dad took me for a ride to Grandma and Grandpa's house. When we got home, I curled up on the couch next to my mom and she scratched me until it was bedtime. It was a great day!
Note from Mom: We don't know the exact date of Eddy's birthday. We celebrate his birthday on March 3rd, which is the day we adopted him. At that time, it was estimated that he was about a year old.

My Frosty February

Is winter over yet? I was really happy to go on a couple of walks on the few warm February days, and I met some new dogs in the neighborhood. I've been chasing the birds at the bird feeder and the rabbits out of my yard. My parents have been leaving me out of my crate during the days that I don't go to doggie daycare. I've been really good, so I can't wait to see what I get on my birthday March 3rd. My parents can't believe it's been 2 years since they brought me home from my foster home!

Here I am with a new toy (I ripped all the stuffing out of it right after this picture was taken)...

I had fun playing in the deep snow with my neighbor, Giggles...

I took a lot of naps...

I helped shred some paper during a birthday party...
I'm looking forward to a warmer March with longer, more frequent walks!

Snow and Cold

There's a lot of snow here in Cleveland and it's cold. There were a couple of days that it was so cold (-4 degrees) that my feet hurt when I went outside. My mom tried putting some doggie boots on me, but I hated them and tried to rip them off. Here are some pictures of me from the past couple of weekends...

Nap time!
