Wordless Wednesday

Just words Wednesday....

No pics today cuz we're using mom's work puter during lunch.  We spent like an hour last night doin a blog after being tagged by Darwin, tagging other bloggers, and sending out the Sunshine Award....but then the puter shut down and mom got frustrated. 

Glad to hear my buddy, Darwin, was NOT diagnosed with Wobbler's.  That's a huge relief.

We'll try the blog again tonight and hopefully will have a picture by then.

When there was sun...

Yesterday, we had some nice sunshine.  Mom was out soaking in some rays, but I took over her seat when she got up.  I thought it would be much more comfortable than the deck, but I didn't quite fit:
It was so nice yesterday that we went for a long walk along the waterfront and then later mom took me to the offleash park.  It was a great day. 

Today is a different story.  Rain and yucky.  The rain didn't start until afternoon and we did get a long walk in while the weather was still nice in the morning, so I shouldn't complain.  I also went to my last intermediate obedience workshop at Positive Approach.  So far, I've completed my basic 7-week obedience course, intermediate 6-week course, and 3 workshops (no jumping, recall, and loose-leash walking).  Mom says I'll be starting my advanced class next month.  I'm kindof nervous about that cuz we take the CGC at the end. 

Mom said the weather's supposed to be yucky again tomorrow (bleh!) so we're going to go to Home Depot and Lowes to do some training.  She called and got their permission for me to hang out just as long as I'm wearing my work vest.  That should be cool.  At least I'll be dry!!!  Plus, we're making the monthly visit to my doc so I can get weighed again and hang out with my buds.

Bark at y'all later!

Wordless Wednesday

Okay, just a few comments to do this justice...
This is a wood sculpture they just finished outside mom's workplace:
It's made out of a tree they cut down.  You can see the stump.  It's hard to tell from the picture, but it's like twice as tall as mom!

Days at work

Mom's old office sure doesn't have the 'bed appeal' as her temporary one with the human size elevated bed. 
Oh well.  You make due with what you've got. 
Last week at work, I got to play with my BFF, Tasman.  The weather was wonderful, so we got to run and romp in the sun for over an hour!!
Tomorrow, it's supposed to get up to 70!!  Hopefully, me and mom will be able to get out and enjoy some of that elusive Seattle sun!

Beautiful Monday

The weather was supposed to be kindof yucky today, so mom took me out in the cold, cloudiness and we walked, then went and got my nails done, then we hung out at the vet's office before heading home for a quick nap and lunch.  Then the sun came out.  So mom, being the sport she is, took me to the dog park, where I got to play for about 2 hours in the sun.  I met a visla, Violet, who was as energetic as me (and kindof looked like me).  It was a blast!
After 2 hours of playing, I was pooped.  So, I crashed when we got home.  I was so out of it, those sneaky katz thought they could lay on my bed... WHILE I WAS IN THE ROOM! 
I don't think so!!!
Ugh!  I've got to go.  Mom just said it's time for our afternoon walkie.  Man, sometimes she gets a little kah-razy with this walking thing.  Oh well, I don't mind going on these beautiful days.

Let the De-stuffing Begin!

Sometimes I like to modify my toys to the way I like them...which is without the stuffin'.
There....almost perfect.

When the dog's away....

I fooled one of the katz today.  I was real quiet and pretended I wasn't home.  Then, when Jake was all settled into MY bed.....
I crept out of my hiding place... 
Ah HA!
Now I have to de-katz stink my bed....
But I think I taught him to never go around my stuff again. 
Wait a minute...what the....

...and I thought I was lazy!

So, mom wants to apologize for not getting in more photos.  I did get to play with my BFF, Tasman, on Friday, when I was a beautiful day, but mom 'forgot' the camera.  Saturday, I got to meet up at the PD dogpark with my furriends, Nina and Sierra.  I haven't seen them for a while.  I also met up with a furriend from another dog park, Choco.  We played a little tug with his frisbee:
Today, me, mom, & dad went for a walk at two different places this morning.  Mom says there's a cold-front coming in, so we're trying to get out a lot while it's still not raining.  Yuck.  I don't like the rain.  Mom says it's been a warm PNW winter.  She got these shots of what is usually a sign of PNW spring:

Supporting the Troops

Doing my part to support those who've served.   Actually, mom does most of the work!  Thursdays I'm usually so tired from 2 days of Biscuits play-all-day that I sleep most of the day.  Tomorrow I'll have much more energy.  I also have a lunchtime play date with my BFF, Tasman.  The weather's supposed to be nice, so mom should get some pics.  We'll see.  She's been slacking lately.

Weekend Catch-up...again

Another BUSY weekend!  It started off by us going to a new obedience class, which mom said was a 'ridiculous waste of time.'  I didn't think it was right when the teacher wanted mom to spray me in the mouth with this stuff for something I didn't do and plus it was like 5 minutes after the 'incident' (another dog in the class lunged at me, snarled, and tried to bite me).  Mom stuck up for me and refused to do it (yea!  good for her!) because I hadn't done anything wrong in the first place and the timing was inappropriate (I would have been punished for sitting quietly and being good, which would have been really confusing).  I guess that teacher didn't know mom's a shrink and knows all about that positive reinforcement & punishment stuff.  Mom thinks that lady had some control/crazy issues.  Other students in the class came up to us after and apologized for the teacher's behavior.  Maybe SHE should have been sprayed in the mouth for being so annoying.  Mom says we got our money back and she would definitely NOT recommend that place to anyone.  We're going back to Positive Approach for advanced obedience because we KNOW they use positive reinforcement-based training.

On to the more fun stuff.....I got to accompany mom and dad on a little trek on the Interurban Trail.  They said I did REALLY good the whole way!
Then Sunday I got a  cool surprise.  My sis, Nala, was down so we got to play together!
She's still wearing her boot cuz of her healing toenail, but at least this one didn't go flying off whenever she ran.

This morning, me and mom went on a long walk for an hour.  Glad mom packs the water, but the Cool Whip bowl is a little ghetto:
We went for another walk this evening, so now I'm pretty pooped.  Ready for my pumpkin & fish oil, one last pottie break for the night, then relaxing with a flossie before crashing in the crate.  Tomorrow's a full day of play at Biscuits!
