New Pictures

Don't I look like I have wings?

Don’t I look like I have wings?

July 25, 2005
YES! I’ve got new all grown up pictures now on my web page. I am so proud of them. And I didn’t even have to get groomed again (although Mommy snuck up on me and gave me a bath first – yuck). I think I should be clean enough after swimming in the Tennessee River. Speaking of which, Mom let me swim a little without my life vest on Saturday. It was a little scary, but Mom says I am an excellent swimmer! Now she is seeing great big turtles where I was swimming and says I have to wear my life vest all the time again “just in case.”

I didn’t get off the boat on Sunday at all, because I am still trying to figure out what this just in case is all about. Then my boat started not working so well, and we went home. Drat! I was getting to eat cheese twirls, and I was doing what Mom called self-serve in the boat bag because she had my special biscuits just lying loose down in there.
Maybe I will throw up in Mommy’s bed tonight. Won’t she be surprised!

Groomed

I’m groomed. No use playing sick anymore.

Even so, I had a really good 4th of July. I went to a picnic where a full band played in the yard for over an hour, and everyone pet me and said nice things to me. There was a golden retriever mix there, and she was scared of me and wouldn’t play, not even when I stuck my behind up in the air and got down really low in the front. That usually works. Poor doggie. Mom wouldn’t let me play with the Yorkie, either. She said I would squish it. In any case, there is good food at picnics!

When the picnic was over I got to go to my boat and swim a lot because it was a hot day. I slept on the big bench seat and ate more yummy food from the cooler and boat bag.

I’ve been having so much fun chasing the joggers at the park. Mommy gets mad at me though and says I will have to stay on my leash if I keep doing that and don’t listen. I don’t want to stay on my leash and I want to chase the joggers. 😦 Not today, though – it’s raining. I am going to see how big my bladder is!

Haven’t felt good

Mom still hasn’t taken any new pictures, but she says she has to groom me first Hmmm, maybe I can do without the new pictures.

I haven’t been feeling well all week – I didn’t get to puke in Mom’s bed, but Mommy had to wash the love seat cover, and I left more stuff on it Mom says isn’t polite to talk about.

She wanted to groom me again last night, but this not feeling good thing seems to be working for me. Maybe I will puke in her bed tonight. Won’t she be surprised! (I’m really feeling better, but don’t tell Mom!) (Do you think she will still take me to my boat this weekend?)
