Doggie Play Time!

Today, Amy and David brought me over to a doggie play time at the Coopers’ house. I met Brenda and Eirik briefly when they came over to our house in September for Amy’s birthday so I was excited to see them again. They even got me a squeaky toy for Christmas but I forgot it at their house :o( Brenda and Eirik have a Weimaraner, Casey, and there were two other dogs there too, Captain and Raven, Boston Terriers. We played in the backyard and had a great time! Here are a couple of pictures of Captain, Casey and I playing. Casey, as you can see is a stick gatherer.

This is Raven. She’s Captain’s little sister. She’s still a little puppy but she was lots of fun to play with.

After running around for a while, we all got pretty tired. Captain and I eventually had to take a breather.

As we were running around, Raven and I found a tub near the tool shed that was full of water left over from storms. I don’t think we were supposed to be drinking out of there, but we were super thirsty.

Eventually I think the people got the hint and Anne, Captain and Raven’s owner, turned on some water for us.

After playing we all went inside and I wasn’t so behaved around the dogs. I had to be put in my crate :o( I need to work on playing nicely with others when I’m inside.

The LA Kid

Tonight David’s friend, Steve, aka the “LA kid”, came over. He’s also a big fan of my blog, he even actually commented! I met him over the summer when I was a really little puppy but I don’t remember much from that visit, just that he came over really late, like really really late…maybe he was still on LA time. I’m not really sure what LA is, but I’m told it’s far away from here. I was really excited to see Steve so getting a picture when him and me was a little difficult. This is the best that we got.

Bath Time!

I just got a bath. I will refer you to the IM conversation that Amy and David had before and after the bath.

before the bath
Amy: okay well puppy and i are going on a walk
Amy: then i think i might give him a bath
Amy: he’s whining
Amy: surprise surprise
David: what puppy
David: what did you do
David: the blog has been updated!
Amy: i was talking on the phone
Amy: and while i was on the phone, a certain puppy we both know jumped onto the couch with his pillow and was sitting quite contently knowing that i was attached to the phone and couldn’t shoo him off
Amy: but little does he know that he’s about to get a bath
David: haha!
David: good!
David: he smells!

after the bath
Amy: this so called dog is going crazy
David: shoot it!
Amy: he was actually pretty good during the bath
Amy: except for the one time he tried to jump out and i had to use all of my strength to keep him in the bathtub
Amy: and as I was trying to control him, i let go of the shower head and it started spraying water all over the bathroom
Amy: now he’s very suspicious of me
David: haha
Amy: oh my god!
Amy: he ran downstairs and has been sitting on the green couch!
Amy: in front of this stupid computer!
Amy: now it’s all wet and smells of wet dog!
David: wet dog!
David: gross!
David: get rid of him!
David: sell him!
David: quick quick!

This is a picture of me wet. It was taken after I had been running around the house like mad so I’m partially dry but not quite.

And this is a picture of the couch after I sat on it wet. As you can see, Amy totally exagerrated (David and I have found that she tends to do that when it comes to the cleanliness of the house).

See and I bet you all thought I’ve been joking when I say that David wants to sell me.

Karoke Revolution

So David came home on Sunday with a new video game…Karoke Revolution and he and Amy haven’t stopped playing it since. It’s different from all of David’s other video games he just sits with the little controller and stares at the television. For this game, they actually sing. Oh, it’s horrible! I don’t think they realize that they couldn’t carry a tune to save their lives! Unfortunately I don’t think they’re going to stop playing it any time soon. Please help me!

But on a brighter note, I met another new person last night! David’s aunt from Long Island came over to visit. She was really nice. Her son, Brandon, came and stayed with us for a night back in August when I was much littler.

Merry Christmas

I hope that everyone had a very Merry Christmas! Maybe you’re one of the lucky ones who got one of my Christmas cards from Amy and David ;o) I hope everyone had a wonderful day and had a great time opening presents. I sure did! This is me opening my present from Amy and David.

It’s toy sheep to herd! I also got Greenies from our next door neighbors! I haven’t had one since I got sick eating one when I was only a few weeks old and I had to go to the emergency vet :o( But thus far I’ve been doing fine and my new bag of Greenies came with a nifty bandana too!

The rest of the weekend has been pretty good. I got a new box of pigs ears! We gave away some of them to all of my canine friends for the holidays. Today I got to play with Kibbles. I haven’t played with her in a while so that was fun. It would’ve been even better if Rusty had been out, maybe next time. On Christmas morning I went with Amy to her parents’ house. I didn’t get to play with Koko too much cause he kept on barking but I did get to open his presents for him since I love tearing paper apart and he could care less.
