As is usual, I've gotten myself into another predicament. I just can't seem to go a month without getting sick in some just keeps things interesting!

This week I got hives. Yes, HIVES! They came out of nowhere and mom and dad can't figure out bugs? new plants?...still no idea. Of course they were worried and as first-time parents they had a minor freakout but after googling "dog hives" they calmed down a bit. Apparently they're pretty common!

I've gotten to eat pepperoni twice a day as a result (I think mom's hiding medicine inside but I don't care) so it hasn't been too bad. Between the medicine (Benadryl--dogs can take 1mg/lb they weigh) and my soothing baths I'm not itchy anymore and the bumps have gone down a lot. Here's what they looked like at first though--you can see why mom got scared!

Hey mom...can we keep him?!

This past week has been SOOO much fun! Mom got me a cool new friend to play with! Johnny is 10 years old and my dad's little brother (although he's not really that much littler than dad anymore...maybe I should call him dad's younger brother...)

We have had a great time going for walks, playing at the dog park and generally just hanging out. I've been like Johnny's little shadow following him everywhere he goes. At night when mom says it's time for bed I even stand on the inside of the bedroom door just staring at it, hoping she'll let me out again soon so we can keep playing :)

Here's a picture of us cuddling in my bed one night...

Mom says Johnny will have to go back to his house on Friday but I keep hoping he'll stay. I'm going to be so sad without him!

Dogs in the news

I don't get to catch up on my news all that much (what with my busy schedule of chewing, pooing and running around..) but when I do I love any story about dogs :) Here are a few of my new favorites:

The Smartest Dogs
And yes, I rank #3...well, at least part of me does.

Puppies with a Purpose
I'm not quite this well-trained but I try...

Disease-sniffing dogs?
What a good skill to have!

As you can tell I like videos best since I haven't really learned to read yet. I hope you do too!

Spiderwebs are funny!

They sure do get stuck to your face pretty easily :) Check out between my eyes...

Luckily my mom helped me pull it off (after she snapped a picture of course)!
