The Thanksgiving Holiday

Today I am stuck at home alone again :o( For four whole days Amy and David were home and I got played with and pampered but now I’m stuck in my crate/exercise pen again. Where to begin? Well, on Thanksgiving Day I went back up to Waldorf with David to his parents’ house. Tavish wasn’t there this time but Spirit was; I didn’t even attempt to play with him. I did my best to ignore him. He kept on barking and snarling at me all day when I would go near him. He also kept on calling me “that damned whipper snapper.” Finally when we were leaving he came up to me and I know he was about to get one last snarl in, so I sucker punched him. Pow! Right in the nose. This is Curmudgeon Spririt himself.

What else happened this past weekend? Oh, David punched some holes in the ceiling and wall in the basement to run some speaker wires or something. Amy didn’t seem too thrilled with the holes, although they gave me a new idea…I should try and eat the wall! I’ll have to start on that soon.

We played frisbee a bunch too in the park behind our house. We didn’t nearly play enough yesterday but Amy dragged me back inside, I guess she was getting cold or something.

Destruction Update

This weekend I successfully broke triangular shaped pieces off of the vinyl tile flooring in Amy’s bathroom. I will endeavor over the next few days and months to rip up the rest of the tile when Amy and David aren’t looking. I also left a few more of my teeth marks on the bottom of the bookcase in the living room. Amy’s black pair of socks with the puppies on them are now well ventilated after I chewed a hole through the heel. Last week I started a new project, chewing on the black chair in the basement. I’ve got the right edge of the chair gnawed down pretty well. Progress is also being made on my new set of Nylabone keys, I plan on getting those down to the tips by the new year. Oh and I almost forgot, I managed to eat about 1/3rd of my hard plastic frisbee that I got at puppy graduation from PetSmart.

Mean Tavish

Today we went up to David’s parents’ house for David’s mom’s birthday. His grandparents came down from Long Island for the celebration and brought their Westie Tavish. David and Amy were all excited for me to meet Tavish cause they thought we’d have a lot of fun together but boy were they wrong. From the second I stepped foot inside the house Tavish was out to get me. He did not like me one bit. David’s grandfather said it was probably because I’m a little hyper and jumpy (hey, I’m only a 5.5 month old puppy, what do you expect?!) which made Tavish a little nervous so he kept on growling and snapping at me. All I wanted to do was play :o( It kind of sucked. There I was in a house with two other dogs (Spirit, David’s parents’ dog was there too of course) and I couldn’t play with either one of them. Here’s a picture of Tavish. Sure he looks cute and little and sweet, but looks can be deceiving.

The Taste of Clothing

I just remembered another thing I love to do…chew on clothing, especially socks! This is me getting caught chewing on one of Amy’s socks.

When Amy or David open a closet door, I like to sneak in behind them and grab the first sock I see and then run around the room like crazy. I have also been known to do some damage to other articles of clothing. Check out David’s shirt in this picture. Yep, I did that.

Playing with Koko

Before I begin today’s entry, let me first apologize for not having included any pictures as of late in my entries. Now while I am perfectly capable of typing these entries, I must rely on Amy to download my pictures and she’s been slacking lately, I’ll have to speak to her today when she gets home from work.

Last night Amy brought me over to her parents’ house where I got to play with Koko again, I haven’t seen him in a while and we actually had a lot of fun. He didn’t want to play at first but once I annoyed him enough, he was game. When I went over there for the first time as an 8 week year old puppy we were the same size but now I’m three times as big. Last night We kept on running around the dining room table but since he’s so much smaller and lower to the ground he kept on running under the table so I couldn’t get to him.

When we got home, David wasn’t there! Usually he’s home when we get home. Amy put me in my crate for the night and David didn’t get home till much later. Amy heard my rustling around so she let me out, I ran straight to the top of the stairs to the basement so I could go down and say hello to David but she dragged me outside to pee so I didn’t see him at all :o( I saw him this morning! But only for a few seconds :o(
