- Meet Mercy!
First of all, thanks to Athena and Electra (left) for holding my place while I got everything situated. I hope I never have to call on them again. (You might have noticed…they are (yelp!) cats…well, kittens.) And as cute as they were then, they have grown into cats now and…
- Falling Leaves
It is not summer any longer, but it is still hot. I don’t understand. If you see any falling leaves, you should bite them. Even as a puppy I knew that. But if the leaves are inside, you should not bite them because they might be pot holders. You can get in trouble if you bite potholders.
- What Am I Thankful for?
It’s almost Thanksgiving, so I wanted to tell you the things that I’m thankful for. My friend Nikki…and squirrels. My friends at doggy day care…and squirrels. My big brother…and birds and squirrels. How about you?
- My Brother Is Graduating!
(Actually he’s not my brother, but that’s not important.) He’s graduating from college and we’re very excited and proud. But the big question is “Will this mean more treats for me?” I hope so!
- Road Trip: All Ready to Go!
My brother is going to go live in Montana for a year…whatever that is. I think I get to live in his room and sleep in his bed. Everything is packed and ready…including me. Do you think they packed my Milk Bones?
- Wait…It’s Not Really Snow
I licked it and it didn’t melt. My owner said it was an “effect.” I want real snow.
This is a picture of my friend Jennifer’s cabin at Donner Summit (in the mountains). It’s covered with cotton so you can take a nap anywhere. I want to visit.
- Have You Seen My Bone?
I think I may have buried it somewhere, but I don’t know where. Sometimes I bury it in the couch. Maybe it’s at the beach. It’s a good bone. I like it because it was getting soft, but was still hard enough to chew. I hope I find it.
- Summer Camp Is Fun!
I just got home from summer camp. We climbed trees and chased squirrels. Now I’m back. I get to go to doggy day care where we climb trees and chase squirrels.
- Meeting New People Can Be Fun, but Scary
We had friends over for dinner last night. I didn’t know they were friends until later, so I barked at them when they came to the door. I have been practicing NOT barking at people, but sometimes I forget. I like having people come over for dinner because sometimes they give me treats
—especially if I don’t bark!
Friends are good. They sometimes share their treats with you (but mostly they don’t). I have friends at my day care (Maggie and Tulip and Fels and Sammy and Heidi, to name a few). I also have friends that I haven’t seen for a long time (like Nicki and Emmy).
There is a squirrel on my balcony at home; he is NOT my friend.
- Summer Is Hot
Happy Summer! It is hot. I have a nice pool, but I think I ate it…at least pieces of it. And now the water leaks out. I have a new bone, but I can’t tell you where it is. I ate a lemon by mistake. It was sour. My brother is coming home to keep me over the 4th of July. I bark at fireworks. I’m saving money to buy a pet.
- I Think It’s Snowing on My Blog!
- Back to School
Is it time yet? Everyone is going back to school. I like school because I get to play with my friends and have snacks. Sometimes we play chase. Sometimes we play chase the squirrels. Sometimes we play chase the squirrels up a tree. I’m also learning how to take longer naps.
- I LOVE North Carolina!
I’m in North Carolina again! I love North Carolina because I can run and run and run and run. I also have many dogs to play with. My cousin Rafe is a nice dog and he shows me the best places to bury bones. He also showed me where the rabbits live. I like Rafe—even though he growls at me sometimes when I get too close to his bone. This is a picture of Rafe with me when I was just a puppy.
- Crossing the Cape Fear River
On a ferry boat! With lots of seagulls following us! (I tried to ignore them, but they kept squawking at me!) I was helping with research for The Clue at Price’s Creek, the next North Carolina Lighthouse Adventure by M.C. Tillson.
I was pretty tired by the time we got back. Zzzzzz!
- One a Day
My owner said I could open one door a day. There was a Milkbone mini-bone inside door 1 and I ate it. There was a Milkbone mini-bone inside door 2 and I couldn’t get it so my owner gave it to me. And I ate it. There was a Milkbone mini-bone inside door 3 and I ate it. I wonder what is inside door 4.
I hope I can eat it.
- What Was That?
I live in California. The other day we had an earthquake. I was asleep before the earthquake, after the earthquake, and during the earthquake. I was asleep until my owner came to see if I was okay. Then I was awake…but she told me to go back to sleep. So I did. So, when my friends ask me if the earthquake woke me up, do I say yes? (I need to think about that one!)
- My Brother Is Home!
My brother is home! My brother is home! My BROTHER is HOME! I jumped on his bed and he yelled at me! And then I jumped on his bed again. I love this game! My brother is home! His shoes smell funny so I took them outside.
My brother is home! My brother is home! He’s home! My brother is home! My brother is home! My brother is home! Why can’t I come in?
- Ice Cream
July is National Ice Cream month. I think every month should be National Ice Cream Month. My favorite flavor of ice cream is cold. I also like peanut butter and Milkbone ice-cream sandwiches. You have to put them in the freezer and wait.
I don’t like to wait.
