spring, summer, come hither...

I know everyone is with me when I say I am SO OVER this winter!  Now, don't get me wrong because I love love love to play in the snow, but it gets old after the first gazillion times!  My poor paws get so cold, and little snowballs get stuck between my toes. All the lakes and rivers are frozen so I can't go swimming, which is my number one favorite activity.  I just dream of the days of green grass, warm sunshine, grasshoppers, birds...ah, it is just too depressing.  It is basically March and it is EIGHT degrees outside!  I am not a happy junebug, nope siree.  I have hit my limit on winter and I am praying! for a swift return of sunny days and warm sunshine.  Riding in the car with the windows down, hours at the dog park, swimming in the neighborhood fountains (shh...don't tell the home owners), laying on the back porch catching some rays, splashing in my swimming pool.  I mean come on!  It doesn't get much better than those lazy, hazy days of summer.  



Im Baaaack!

Hello my fellow buggers!  This past week has been a whirlwind of events, and I am so sorry I have left you all in the dark!  My ear issues really threw me through a loop and then my cousin Davis turned ONE year old this week!  Between odds and ends in between those events, I have neglected my blog duties.  I think the best way to catch everyone up is through a little photographic journey, whattya say?

"mom my ear huwwwts!"
cousin davis turns 1! 2/16/10
traded in daycare for afternoon walks with mom!
night time cookie without the chat...
Party time for the Birthday Boy!
need help with that Davis?
"mom, stop...

Whoever thought giving my mom camera was a good idea, well I just straight up do not trust your judgement.


ps.  i won't keep you waiting again my dears!


Dreadful news...

I have come down with an ear infection...my first major illness of my life :(  i am fairing well and I am in good spirits but there is something nasty going on in my ear.  Unfortunately I have to stay home from work tomorrow too, I know my mom needs all the help she can get out there but I know she won't take it personally.  I hope all of you, my little bugs, are feeling much better than I am and hopefully when I blog next I will be 100% and back at it.  Until then, look how sad and pathetic and adorable I am....


ps...send me some love people!


My favorite things...

Part Deux of my favorite things is my FAVORIIIITE new toy my mommy bought me a few weeks ago.  It is called a dental dino, its a chew toy from nylabone and it is just the bomb dig.  I chew on this little nugget all day long, and I guess it's good for my teeth too, which makes my mom happy.  It is currently my favorite activity behind sleeping and getting belly rubs, so you know it's for real.  Luckily, for everyone, my mom has taken a mini photoshoot of me in action.  

get it girl

grrrr dino grrrr

so cute, tots must have

You can tell from the pics the dental dino is totally a hot item for spring '10.  Any girl in the canine world should not be without this item.  A) its so cute B) totally brightens the smile all while being fun too:)

daily afternoon snoOozzZZze...life is rough



Hunk O' The Month


For those of you who know Boomer, he was the obviously first choice for Hunk O' the Month.  Boomer is my older brother and is probably the most laid back dog you will ever meet.  Boomer loves long walks in the field, a nice yellow tennis ball to shred, vegetables (I'm not joking), popcorn, a good snooze on the couch and last but not least, a nice long belly rub.  Boomer grunts when he is pet and has perfected the art of begging during his 12 years of life.  I hear it is actually impossible not to give him some of your food...I am trying to learn his ways, but patience is not one of my virtues.  He is a ball of love and fluff and could turn even the biggest non believer into a dog lover if given a chance.  So without further ado, I give you...Boomer!

night time cookie chat

I have been a bit absent lately, please forgive me!  I have been just so busy this week.  I have gone to daycare three times, been on one two mile jog, eaten about 20 cookies, slept about 8900 hours and also i have to get my kiss quota in line for the week! Luckily this week is almost over because I am WIPED out.  My mom has me on this new fish oil stuff because my skin is so dry. Yuck (about my skin)!  The fish oil is to die for, i lick my bowl clean!  I would definitely recommend it for any of my canine companions because it is delicious and nutritious, like flinstone vitamins:)  I also have been helping my mom with her chemistry workload...she studies, i snuggle, its a pretty fair trade off...I am at least pleased with it.  I have lots of fun ideas I would like to do with my blog, one thing i am really excited for is my Hunk O' The Month posts that i hope to have up and running this weekend...it will be a spotlight on all the male dogs in my world (so if you would like your dog to be a 'hunk' e-mail my mom your pic!)I already have a Hunk lined up for the first edition and I am pretty excited about it.  My day off from daycare is tomorrow (thank god, those dogs are crazy and its MY job to make sure they don't get outta line) so hopefully i can get a head start on that.  On another note...look how pretttty I am!

nighty night my little bugs!




i have been tres busy lately so i shall just leave you a beautiful picture of moi until i can get my intellectual posts back in order...
