Small thoughts from a small dog

Mercy’s Blog

  • Holidays Are Exhausting

    Holidays are exhausting!

    I need a nap.

  • Wear Your Mask

    I do.

    I take it off when I eat. I like to eat.

    Or drink.

  • Let’s Slow It Down!

    We really don’t know how long this new routine will be with us, but most of us seem to understand that, for right now, for us regular-type folks, it’s simply about slowing things down. Anything we can do to slow the spread of COVID-19 will help.

    I can do that. You can do that. Everyone can help. All we need to do are the basics:

    • Wash your hands—Soap and hot (not too hot!) water work best, but if you’re not near water, use alcohol wipes and hand sanitizer.
    • Don’t touch your face—Not your mouth, not your nose, and not your eyes.
    • Keep a distance ...
  • 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.

     

  • Friends

    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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Stairs

    I live on the third floor and the grass lives on the first floor.

    I like to go up and down the stairs. And then up and down and then up. And then down again. And up. Again.

    My Mom doesn’t like the stairs sometimes.

  • It Might Be Squirrels

    It’s raining. That’s when water comes from the sky instead of your water dish. Rain feels nice, but it makes funny noises in the trees. Those noises remind me of squirrels so I have to keep checking them out. Lots of rain makes nice mud. I like rain…except when it gets cold.

  • One a Day

    newadventmercyMy 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.

  • 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?

  • My Brother Is Graduating!

    MercyGrad(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!

  • Ooooh…Soft!

    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.

  • I Think It’s Snowing on My Blog!

    Why?

  • Wait…It’s Not Really Snow

    https://mercylouise.files.wordpress.com/2015/12/snowflake.png?resize=80%2C72I licked it and it didn’t melt. My owner said it was an “effect.” I want real snow.

  • Falling Leaves

    It is not suhttps://mercylouise.files.wordpress.com/2015/09/babymercywithleaf_200x133.jpg?resize=161%2C107mmer 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.

  • 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?

  • 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 treatsespecially if I don’t bark!

     

  • 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 MicahSeaRanch13friends at doggy day care…and squirrels. My big brother…and birds and squirrels. How about you?
