A Beryl of Fun

It was real windy and wet out today so I mostly had to play inside.   This afternoon when I went outside, I saw lots of new things in the yard.
Now what do we have here?  A new toy? 
Mom started picking up the leafy play sticks so I grabs on and ran with it.

Kinda tricky to get a good hold of it.

Yippy!  I got it now.  Catch me.  Catch me.

Mom said we were doing yard work.  Woof! Woof!  I like this yard work game.   We picked up all the fun leafy toys and put them away in a big brown bag.
 I really don't want to give this one up.
    Maybe we can get them out of the bag and play with them again someday.
Mom missed these last 2 leaves.  I got them and I'm not giving them up.

Red, White, and Blue

I hope you are having a woofing good Memorial Day.    This is my first holiday and I am very excited.   I got all decked out in my holiday scarf to celebrate.
I like my blue & red squeaky toy.
What's this wavy stick all about?.

Mom said all the flags (wavy sticks) are being displayed to honor and remember all those in the military who died in the service their country.   Oh.   I like the wavy sticks.
What is going on over there?   Sounds like a party next door.   And I hear puppies!
Gotta run now… I spy Rocky.  
Yippy!   I love holidays.

Making a Fashion Statement

Mom got me some new duds today.   It's a green harness with lady bugs on it.  
How do I look?
I'm not quite sure of this new harness thing.   I dragged the green leash that was attached to it around for awhile.
I really don't get this new leash toy.  Some of my other toys are more fun.
Having it on made me want to roll over a lot.    I thought I could get if off me if I rolled over, but no such luck.
Check out my Pearly Whites! 
Don't I have a cute belly?   The vet lady said it was really soft.
Not sure I'll be able to rock this new look.   Maybe Tim Gunn can make it work.  Lucky for me, Mom did not make me wear it very long.     I think I like going al la naked better.

Woof Woof… freedom!

Nips and Treats-in-a-Box

I like to chew and nibble on all things.   Mom has lots of stuff for me to chew on and play with but sometimes when I am excited and full of energy I nip at her feet or hand.   "Ouch!" she shouts.   Not sure what that means, but she always follows it with a "NO" and then I end up in time out.  

Aunty D and Mom both have little sticky things on them to cover up where I nip'd them.   I guess I shouldn't nip at them but sometimes I just can't help myself.

This morning Mom gave me a new box to play with.  
I wonder what is in here.
 She frequently puts treats in little boxes.  Yippy!!
Now all I have to do is get the treat out it out of the box.

Oops… it's stuck on my nose.

Look-out for the black box!

For the past 2 days, I have been taking Mom on a short walk to the black box.    I take my leash in my mouth and drag it on the ground and Mom follows me.
Come on Mom!   This way.

Sometime when I grab my leash, I come up with some grass at the same time.  I have a big mouth and can hold a lot of stuff in it.

When we reach the black box with the red flag, I look in to see if there is anything good inside.  

Maybe the lady in the car with the blinking light on top did not come to our house today.    

I'll keep a look out for her.
I'll Bark at you tomorrow!

O Canada

This morning Mom showed me how to Skype.  We skype'd with her friend Moira in Canada.   I don't know where Canada is, but Mom says it is one of our neighbors and it is very clean and green there.    I like green.   The grass is green and I like rip up pieces of it and run around with it.
Grass is fun
I sat infront of Mom's computer and watched Moira.   She does not talk like Mom or Aunty D.   Do they speak another language there?
Woof Woof Eh!

Moira said I was very cute.  I think she is a good Canuck and a real tail-wagger.   Maybe I should learn more about Canada.   Hey Mom…. can you show me how to google?

Yip!  Yip!  Moose.

This song is loud but I like it.

Chilling on the Porch

Woof Woof!  I'm back.   Mom would not let me blog on Sunday but today is not Sunday.

A Room with a View
I got to hang out on the back porch today.

I like looking out the windows/screens as they go all the way down to the floor (right at my level).   Sometimes I can see Rocky walking around in the yard and one time I saw a bird.  Cool.
The floor is shinny and feels really cool on my belly.    I played with some of my toys and chilled out.

I really like this room.  It may even be one of my favorite hang out places.      Mom frequently sits at the little table in this room and eats lunch and types on the computer.  She really hogs the computer.  I have to wait for her to get off before I can start blogging.   

I can even look into the house to see if anything exciting in going on in there.  Sweeeet ! I get very excited when I see Rocky walk by.

I spy Rocky in the house
Gotta go into the house now.  Mom says it's time for dinner (another one of my favorite things)!    She does not like me nipping at her toes so I guess I should just eat my food.

Rocky Days are here again!

I really like Rocky.  He may be old and slow… but he is one cool dog.  He is tall, focused, and I really want to be his buddy.
I wonder what he is going to do next?

Rocky is the "King of the Household".   I just love watching him.  Did I tell you how cool he is?

He keeps his eye on me too.  Maybe he will be my Dogfather.  Sometimes I bark at him, but he is not much of a talker ….  a dog of few barks.  

Rocky is better than I am at climbing the steps into the house.   So far I can only make it up one of the three steps to get back inside the house.  I'm still in training, have short legs and only weigh 6 lbs now.   I am not at my climbing weight yet.  One day I will make it to the top.   

Here is a video of me & Rocky in the backyard.  Oops… for some reason I can't upload the video.   I'll have to ask Mom about what I can do to get it on my blog.  

   ---->  Insert video here <---
I like to jump at him and grab his jingley dog tags and floppy ears.  

Have a barking good day!

My Crib and "I Spy" Ranger

How about a tour of my crib?   Here is my puppy play pen.  I can play in it, hide my chew sticks under the throws, and nap in it.  It's a "bark'n" good space don't you think?

I really love it when Mom leaves the door open and I can run in and out of it.

I also have a big crate with a cover on it that Mom made and she monogram'd my name on top.  Mom leaves the door open on it and sometimes I find some treats inside it, so I look in there often.   The little crate on top is my travel carrier.   I really hate that one.  

How about a game?   Let's play "I Spy Ranger"!   
Can you find me? 

Woof! Woof!  Here I am….
I really like the cool slate on my belly.

I'll bark @ you tomorrow.  
This blogging is hard work.

Flowers, Balls, and Paula Dean

 The ground was wet when I went outside today but that did not stop me from smelling and tasting the yellow flowers in the yard.
Doesn't taste or smell so good but it is pretty.  

Now what do we have here? I kept my eye on a round purple thing that Mom kept kicking around.   She called it a ball.    

It is interesting.  I was a bit afraid of it so I kept barking at it but it did not respond.  Hummm.  I'll have to do some further investigating.

I also checked out a bush that had purple flowers on it.  Mom said that it was Aunty D's butterfly bush and that I should not try to eat the flowers off.   I'm not sure what a butterfly is, but it must be good and someone named Paula Dean probably likes it.   I heard her on the talk box yesterday.

Chow for now.

A Rainy Day

It was wet and noisy outside today.   Every time we went outside to play water fell on me and there was this rumbling sound with flashes of light.  Mom decided that we needed to spend more time at indoor play today.

I had fun running circles around the couch and hiding my chew toys (I even hid one in Rocky's bed).   He didn't even find it when he laid down in it.   Hehe.   Mom also put some of my food nuggets in a little box (that said Olay) and I chased it all around the living-room, dining-room and kitchen trying to get it opened so I could get at the nuggets.  Mom finally opened one end of the box and after spinning it around they fell out.  Woohoo!  Yummmmm.   I really liked that game.

I also played with some of my other toys and rolled them under the low riding coffee-table so I went under the table to fetch them out.   Last I looked, there is now a box under the coffee table so I can no longer go under it.   Too bad... I like diving under things.

After I tired myself out, I snuggled-up with Mom.

After dinner, Mom decided that I should pose for some photos.  Hummmm.  I really don't get this posing thing.  She put me in one of her camera bags and I had to climb out of it.  What's that all about?

She also had some sort of plans with a green hat, but I foiled that plan and pounced on it.

Hat pouncing !!
I'm hoping for some more sunshine tomorrow.

The Great Escape, The Voice, and Dirt

This morning at 6 AM, when I was out in the yard with Aunty D, I decide to slip under the fence and check out the neighbors yard.   Aunty D ran to the gate and into the other yard and clapped her hand and called me to her.

Before the Great Escape

After the Great Escape


This afternoon when I was playing in the yard, I noticed that it looks a little different now.  I guess Mom went to Lowes.

Later in the morning I tried again to get Rocky to play with me.  He was laying in his bed so I barked at him.  And then I barked, backup up a few paces and barked again, and again, and again.   He got up out of his bed.  Yippy!!!!   An then he walked away from me.   Maybe he will play with me tomorrow.

This afternoon, in the yard, I decided to dig in the dirt next to the patio.  Mom and Aunty D moved me away... but I returned to my digging and then laid down in my little dirt space.       
My perfect dirty spot.  
Me and my dirty face & paws.

Mom says I have a dirty face but she loves me anyways.

I'm all worn out again so I think I'll take a nap.

Dirty barky chow for now!

Vets, Flip-flops, and Racing

I had a very busy day today.   It started with a drive in the zoom-zoom car to the vet.  Mom put me in a puppy dog carrier and I just hated it.   I yelled & whimpered the entire 5 min drive to the Vet.    Whew... I finally got out of that crate.    Mom carried me into the Vets office and I was a big hit!   Everyone ooooooo'd and aweeeeeeee'd over me.    I loved all the attention but Mom thinks it went to my head as I was full of myself for the rest of the day.   The nice lady Vet said I was perfect and in great health.  She tried to give me some wet chicken dog food to distract me while she pricked me (got a shot).   Well, it did not work since I did not like the food.    The Vet assistant also cleaned my ears and I had to shake my head lot to get all the wet feeling out of my ears.   I also got my 1st pedicure.  Clip-clip.

After we got back home I had some fun in the back yard.  I discovered flip-flops!   Mom slipped them off her feet and I took one of them and ran with it.   Fun.. fun.   Later in the day when we were outside again, I tried to take it off her foot but grabbed her toe instead.  That got a loud NO from Mom.     I guess she doesn't like the "bit the toes" game.
Mom and Aunty D ate dinner outside while I played with my buddy Rocky.   I was full of energy and raced in circles around him.  I kept trying to get him to play with me and even barked at him.   He just ignored me and walked off.    So... I explored some more grass, twigs, and tried my paws at digging in the dirt.  Did I tell you that I am really FAST.   You should see me run.   I am soooooooo much faster than Mom or Aunty.   

This evening I raced around the living room and tried to get Rocky to play with me.  Again he just walked off.   He isssssss kinda old and walks slowly.   He is not fast like me!  

After such an active day.... I am exhausted.    I may even sleep good tonight and not get Mom or Aunty D up ever couple of hours.

Chow for now.

Play ball !!

Today I had lots of fun playing in the yard.   I love playing ball.  Mom and my new Aunty tossed my ball and I pounced on it.   We played ball for quite a while until I spied a really cool stick to play with.

A couple of neighbors stopped by, Anne & Jack, to visit with me and to drop off some newspapers to my Mom.  Not sure why she needs papers... but it was fun to hear Jack's deep voice.   They plan to visit me once a week (yeah !!!) and will also bring more newspapers.   I'd rather they brought me a treat or toy.  Not sure what to do with the papers.  Maybe I can tear them up.  That could be fun.

My new pad and family.

Yum... grass!

What was that flash?

My new adopted mom picked me up today.   She has a cool white car and I got to ride in the front.  Zoom zoom.    I am told it was a 2 hr ride but I sleep through most of it after I finally got comfortable.   After we arrived at my new house I went out to the back yard to explore.  I also met my new buddy.  His name is Rocky and he is oldddddddd.  He is a beagle/terrier mix and is 18 1/2 yrs old.   Wow.   He has a really cool long tail and I followed it for awhile.   I also tried to taste of few things in the yard.  I think I like the grass the best.   Mom kept flashing a light at me.   Kinda annoying but I guess that's what she does since she is a photographer.   Well... it time for another nap.  Chow.
