Vacation

Mommy is now on vacation for four weeks.  We have had a real nice few days just being at home.  We have been enjoying our retractable awning.  On Thursday Mommy is going on the big flying machine to Winnipeg.  I wish I could go but I have to go to the kennel.  I am really good at flying but I still can't go. Mommy says when she gets home she will still have 1.5 weeks of vacation that we can enjoy together.

My pal Zoe showed us a picture of her sunset a few days or weeks or years ago.  I thought I would show you a picture of my sunset.

Nice Day Outside

Today has been a pretty good day.  It is nice and sunny so Mommy said we better enjoy the outdoors since it is suppose to be raining tomorrow.  This morning Mommy cranked down our awning so we had nice shade on the deck.  Without the awning we would not be able to sit out there for long.  It is quiet with no worker guys and very few people walking by.  I patrolled the perimeter of my property and barked at some pups and I watched the neighbours doing some watering.  Now I am exhausted and I am sleeping under the shade of the awning.  Here I am :

Shine On Award

I was nominated by my pal Mr. Jack Freckles for a Shine On award.  Thank-you Mr. JF!  Just like the Liester Award I am slow in getting to it because of my incompetent secretary.  Anyways, I have to give you seven random facts about myself.

1. My favourite toy is my purple loofa dog.  I got that toy when I was just a small puppy and I love it.  Mommy is worried that the cloth is getting so thin that all the stuffing will start coming out.  Mommy has bought me new loofa dogs but they are not as good as the purple one.

2. I don't chew my toys and I have every toy that I ever got.  Sometimes the squeaks wear out but they are never ripped or chewed.  I am a smart pup and when I want to chew I chew the chew bones.

3.  I know lots of my toys my name.  My Mommy asks me to get a certain toy and I always bring her the right one. 

4. I like to have company when I eat and I won't eat my kibbles without Mommy.  In the morning Mommy puts down my kibbles but I don't touch them until Mommy has her breakfast ready and then we eat together.  I do the same thing at supper time.  I love eating and watching Mommy eat at the same time.

5.  My favourite game is "I am going to get you".  Mommy says those words and I ran like the wind.  Mommy tries to catch me but she never can.  I eventually roll over on my back and Mommy rubs my tummy and says, "Tickle, tickle".  I then jump up and Mommy says, "I am going to get you".  It starts the whole game again.  It is fun, fun, fun.

6.  Another fun game that I do is "Kick you in the butt" game.  Mommy says, "I am going to kick you in the butt"  and I run to Mommy and swing my butt into her.  She gives me a gentle tap on the butt with her foot and I run like the wind.

7.  I know what pee-pee pads are for.  I rarely use them but if I have to pee-pee or poopy when I am alone in the house I will always use the pad.  One time I had diaharria about five times during the day.  I was able to get five small piles on the one pee-pee pad (my piles are small since I am only 8 lbs) and not step on any of them.  Mommy said that takes talent.  :)

I hope you enjoyed these facts about me. 

Liester Award

I got nominated by Mr. Jack Freckles for a Liester Award a few days, weeks or years ago.  Thank-you Mr. JF!  My Mommy is not a very good secretary and is just getting to it now.  Something about not liking to copy and paste on the iPad but now that she is on a desk top she will do it.  Whatever......   At least I am getting it done.  Sorry about it being late but better late than never is my motto.  So here it goes:

 Here are my answers to the questions:

1. What is your Nickname?
I have lots of nicknames.  They include: Jell, Jelly-Belly, Crazy Pup

2. Do you like your furblings if you have any?
I have no furblings and I am not sure if I want any.  It would be fine as long as they didn't get any attention from Mommy.

 3. What do you do when the phone rings?
Absolutely nothing.  Now the door bell is a totally different story.  I run barking like crazy to the door.

 4. Do you evfur howl?
Nope, I don't howl.

 5. Do you dream?
Yep, I dream.  My legs move, my toes wiggle and I bark.  Mommy thinks I am chasing bunnies and squirrels.

 6. Who is your fave unfur in your furmily, your Mom, your Dad, or an unfurbling?( or someone else?)
My Mommy!  I just love my Mommy.

 7. Did you evfur get in trouble using your teeth?
Only once when I was a puppy.  I started to chew the Deacon's bench at the front door.  Mommy caught me right away so there are only a few tooth marks in it.

 8. Where is your fave place to go to visit?
I love going to a cottage at the lake.  I also love going for walks in the park. I love going for car rides with Mommy anywhere.  Going to Magic Window places is fun too. 

 9. Are you allowed to run free anywhere?
I have a fenced in yard so I get to run like the wind in the yard. Fun, fun, fun!

 10. Do you sleep curled up in a ball, or stretched out?
I do both but mostly I curl up.  It is about 75% curl up and 25% stretch out.

I hope you enjoy my answers.

Terrible Day

I had a terrible day today.  A few weeks or years or something ago we had a big water main break right by our house.  Today the worker guys came to fix our street.  They are very noisy and I just hate all the noise and banging.  Those worker guys started at 7:30 am and woke me and Mommy up.  They kept going until 6:00 pm.  It was just horrible!  Here is a picture of me not wanting to move from the deck and the security of being close to Mommy:


Here are some pictures of the worker guys;






Right now it is so peaceful with them gone.  We heard them say they will be back tomorrow.  I am in for another bad day!

Busy Day

I had a good day today.  In the morning I stayed home and got to supervise the road construction guys.  We had a big waterman blow out on the side of our house one of the weeks when I was at the kennel.  Today the construction guys came to start repairing the road.  It was very noisy when Mommy came home for lunch so she decided it would be better for me to spend the afternoon in her office.  I did get to sleep while Mommy sat at her desk and stared at paper and the computer screen and shuffled paper around.  Mommy did take breaks and took me outside to sniff around on the grass.  When we got home we couldn't get into our driveway.  I bet you are blaming the road construction guys but that was not it.  Mommy arranged for some other worker guys to come and seal our asphalt driveway.  It now looks black and shiny but it really stinks.  

The worker guys that put up our awnings came back this week and installed little white poles to support the awning in the wind.  Here is a picture:


See the little white poles in the front?

Mommy wants me to ask a question for her.  It will be boring so just bear with me a bit. Mommy knows nothing about plants.  The peepoles before us grew herbs.  We removed the garden but still have a few small beds.  All kinds of things are growing and Mommy has no idea what it is.  For all we know the plants are nothing but weeds.  Mommy wants me to show you a few pictures so you can show them to your peepoles and maybe they know what the plants are.  The rabbits are not eating them so they likely aren't any good.  Anyways here are the pictures:


This grew from nothing real quick


What are those big leaves?  We have them in a few places.


What is that spindly thing.  It grew from nothing.  Mommy thinks it might be a weed.  As you can see Mommy is pathetic when it comes to plants.

Now it is time to get back to me.  Here is a picture of me guarding my yard this evening:

More Rabbits

Today I saw the funniest thing!  It seems that Mommy has decided to chase rabbits.  Everytime I went out there was always at least one rabbit to chase.  Today Mommy went out before me and chased the rabbits. It was funny because the rabbits are not scared of her.  She waves her hands and stomps her feet and tells them to "shoo".  They just look at her and slowly hop away.  This is contrasted by when I go out they jump away like greased lightening!  Mommy says she worries that I might catch a rabbit so she wants to make sure they are all gone before I come out.  She says they are used to peepoles and are not scared of her.  She said the next time she will be out there swinging a broom!  That should be real funny!  Just let me out and watch them run!  Peepoles are hopeless at catching rabbits!
