New Park Pal

I made a new pal at the dog park this morning.  Maggie, a 9-month-old Rottie, showed up and we had the bestest time.  She played a lot like me (running and wrestling).  We pretty much had the whole park to ourselves and we ran all over. 
I even let her play in my most favorite sand hill.
It was a blast!  Maybe, if I'm lucky, I'll run into her again tomorrow!

The Bright Side of a Rainy Day

I've discovered some positive things about rainy days.  Mom and dad usually feel so bad about me being cooped up that they get me a new toy.  Check out my new one from this last weekend:
Not that I'm looking forward to another rainy day, but this makes it more bearable...for me AND the folks!

Yucky rainy day

Woke up this morning and it was a dreary, wet day.  I had to wait for the rain to stop before I went out for my morning potty.  These days always bum me out cuz the dog parks turn into the La Brea tar pits. 
Nothin' much to do but laze around ... 
...and sleep in with dad...

Mom is hoping the rain stops cuz she says I drive her crazy when I have cabin fever!

Belated Weekend Catch-up

We had some really nice weather over the weekend.  In fact, it got up to 70 a few days.  Me and mom took advantage of a nice morning and went for a 3-mile run. 
This is me after the run, giving my intimidating look to a cyclist going by:
We also ran across this little fella.  I wanted to eat it (cuz I heard it was a delicacy), but mom wouldn't let me:
Later on, I had my first outdoor restaurant experience.  We went to the Harmon, which is mom and dad's favorite place to go for a "relaxing adult beverage." 
I wasn't allowed one of those beverages, but the nice waitress brought me my own pitcher of water.  Plus, mom snuck me some of her nachos.
I really wanted some of these peanuts!
So, my first experience was good.  Lots of people stopped by to pet me.  With the weather getting nicer, hopefully I'll have a lot more of these fun outdoor eating escapades!

What a bee-u-tee-ful Friday!!!

This morning started out a little ruff!  It was one of those mornings.  No one wanted to get out of bed!
I eventually got up, after mom kept bugging me. 
Later, it turned really sunny out and I got to meet up with my fellow working dog, Chester:
It was an all-around great Friday!

Nice weather for a hike

Yesterday, me and mom and dad went on a little hike.  It was kindof windy, so we stuck in the trees. 
Mom brought a little picnic for me afterward.  She got me a cool new travel water bowl, but I guess she just can't part with the ghetto Cool Whip bowl:
Today was a super nice day, so me and mom went on a short run.  Then I went for a little hike around our pond:
...but then I got stuck and couldn't turn around:
It was very scary!  But mom kept reassuring me I'd be okay and that I could make it.
I just went really slow and watched every step.
But, I finally made it all the way to the other side and was safe and dry. 
Whew!!!  That was a close one!

Ruff Day at Work

Went to work with mom yesterday.  I love going there cuz everyone is so cool and they all love me! 
The morning was kindof boring...
but then I got to go on two hour-long walks in the afternoon. 
After that, I was pretty tired. 
Man, this work stuff can wear a guy out!

Today looks like a kindof decent day...a little blustery.  But, mom said we'll go out walking or to the park, or BOTH!!!

Look what the Easter Bunny brought me!!

At first, I thought me, mom, and dad were just going out for a walk.   We went over to the park where me and Nala usually play.  I ran around a little...
Weee!!!  I'm off leash!!!
Then I got the best surprise ever!!  My sis, Nala, showed up!!!
We ran and ran...
and I annoyed her like only a little brother can...
Check it out!!  I'm almost as tall as her!
Look at how small I was when we first met 6 months ago:

Nala brought this fun toy to play with...
Me and the moms:
Gettin' a little pooped from all the playing...but I'm still smilin!
It was such a great Easter surprise!!
