Happy Happy Birthday... the best Mommy in the whole wide world.  Daddy wanted to take a few pictures before I gave Mommy my present.  I tried really hard to smile and look happy but do you see what Daddy put on my head?  He said he wanted me to look "festive."  Ugh!

Waiting for daddy

It's passed 7pm and Daddy is not home yet.  He must have had a hard day at work.  He never gets home this late.  I usually start waiting for Daddy around 5pm every night.  My internal clock starts ticking and I know that it's almost time for Daddy to come home to me.  Yayyyyy!

Thankful Thursday

Hi friends, I'm back!  I'm so thankful that my parents are back too.  I was beginning to have blogging withdrawal.  My parents went to Canada to visit their very good friends (and to snowboard).  Can you believe they went to the snow without me?  I know, I can't believe it either.  Sierra and I stayed with our grandparents and our Uncle Bey Bey.  We have a great time but were SO happy when Mommy and Daddy came home today.  Their very good friends also have furry kids, boy are they cute!

What a busy day

Something suspicious is going on...there are a lot of snowboarding related items out in the house right now.  During our walk today, we saw a lost puppy and brought him home so that the animal police could take him back to his house.  He was a friendly Chocolate Lab.  He had a license but no name tag.  I sure hope that he got returned to his parents safely.  That is too mush excitement for one day, I am going to take a nap under the bed.

Did someone say...

...hamburger?  Yummmmmmmmy!!! Mommy made homemade hamburgers and fries for dinner.  She even made a baby hamburger just for me.  I love hamburger night!  I guess that makes up for the hat charade yesterday.

What in the world... going on?  Mommy thought it would be CUTE to put a hat on me.  I hate having things on my head.  Any of you pups out there with me on that one?  I thought I would amuse Mommy and be a good boy.  Oh course she sweetened the deal with some great Wellness treats.  Yum!

We're all wet

We didn't get a full walk in today because it started raining during the middle of it.  We had to turn around.  How sad!  We all got a little wet.  Oops!  I couldn't even lay down outside so I had to settle for being partly outside.

I'm so lucky...

...that I still got a walk even though it was sprinkling.  It was nice and sunny when we started our walk and then half way through, the rain came.  Thank goodness it was just the sprinkles.  I hope you all had a great Valentine's day!

I got to go...

...for a car ride today.  Mommy had to run a few errands and took me along.  Sierra couldn't go because she was a bad girl during our walk today.  She found a Reese's Fast Break wrapper and decided to rub her neck in it.  Uh oh!  Mommy didn't have time to wash her after our walk since we had to get going so Sierra had to stay home.  We went to See's Candy and Target.  Fun!

What a day!

Both Mommy and I had appointments today.  Mommy went to get her teeth cleaned and I went to get checked for heartworm.  I hate going to the vet more than anything, even more than getting a bath.  Thank goodness Daddy forgot the camera.  I caused quite a scene and it would have been too embarrassing if he would have captured any of it on film.  As soon as we pulled up the building, I knew where we were.  I let out 30 loud dolphin squeals before Daddy made me get out of his truck.  I tried to steer him up the street, away from the vet but it didn't work.  I was shaking and hid under the bench while we were waiting to see the doctor.  Once I was on the exam table, I was fine.  Daddy was in there with me.  The doctor took some blood from my arm and gave me a clean bill of health.  Heartworm free!  Daddy did buy more preventative medicine.  Mommy and Daddy hate for me to take medicine but they say it's better than getting heartworm.  I'll have to take their word for it.  Mommy picked me up after her appt. with the dentist.  We went through the car wash on our way home.  Boy was that an experience!  I have never been through a car wash before.  When we got home, I went straight to one of my favorite places...underneath the futon.  Do you know why?  See that pretty marble table I am laying on?  I love it!  It's nice and cold!  We even went for a walk in between the rain we are having today.  What a traumatic day!

Boy oh Boy...

guess what I got for a snack today?  Cheese!  Mommy gives me cheese for a snack every few days.  It's my favorite!  There isn't anything I wouldn't do for cheese.  We had a great walk today.  It's so nice outside that when we got home, I stayed in the backyard and hung out on the cool concrete.

Guess where we went?

Lake Tahoe!  Boy did we have a great time in the snow.  We loved every minute of it.  We went for a long hike on Saturday and on Sunday we played near the Lake.  Too bad there wasn't more snow.  A ton of snow came as we were leaving.  I was exhausted after our weekend getaway.  After our walk today, I slept like a baby.

I can't believe...

...Mommy forgot the camera.  We went for a car ride today to Petco to buy toothpaste.  Mommy forgot her camera.  There weren't any other dogs there but I had a fun time sniffing around.  And guess what?  We saw a product (Dungeness Ranch) that uses Eskies for their logo.  How cool is that?  We have never seen any product that uses Eskies (except Yip Yap but Mommy won't let me have that stuff and and Chew-gars but I can't have that either).  We didn't buy any of the Eskie paraphernalia since Mommy only uses shampoo from the Only Natural Pet Store.  But I wanted to show you some of their products.

Did someone say...

...COOKIES?  Mommy is making cookies today!  These are my favorite!  I have 1-4 a day, depending on how hungry I am.  Last night, Mommy and Daddy had crab for dinner.  Mommy shared a little bit of her crab with me.  Boy, was it delicious!

Here is the recipe:

Peanut Butter Pumpkin Patch Biscuits

1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tbsp. brown sugar
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg
4 tbsp. apple sauce
4 tbsp. peanut butter
1/2 cup pumpkin (puree or can)
1 whole egg
1/2 milk

Preheat overn to 400 degrees.  Combine flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cut in apple sauce.  Beat egg with milk and pumpkin and combine with flour, mixing well.  Stir until soft dough forms.  Drop by tbsp. onto ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 12-15 min.  Let cool and serve.

*Mommy usually freezes the whole batch and takes out a few a day.

Quite possibly...

...the worst thing, ever!  Yesterday, after a long brushing with the Furminator, Sierra and I both got baths.  Yuck!  Mommy said it had been one month so it was time.  Bath time is not fun.  Anyone else agree with me?

The squirrels are coming...

...the squirrels are coming!  Daddy says that the squirrels should be done hibernating.  We walk by a huge field every day and I have been hearing them for the passed few days.  I saw 2 yesterday and ran after them but they ran into their little holes.  I heard a lot of them today but none of them were out.  Maybe they heard me coming.  I love chasing squirrels.

Today is... of my favorite days of the year, Puppy Bowl Sunday!!!  Sometimes I wish that I was still a puppy so I could try out for it.  I hope that canine sports takes off so that I can participate.  It was fun watching the Puppy Bowl.  Things got really exciting there for a few plays.  Mommy and Daddy were watching the Super Bowl and were sad that the Cardinals didn't win.  They thought both teams played very well.  I hope all of my puppy friends got to watch the Puppy Bowl too!
