Christmas is all about...

The paper of course!



Ok so maybe it's also about family, food and our own respective celebrations. Merry Christmas from me and mine to you and yours!

Cool Pedigree Ad

I'm a Blue dog myself but who doesn't love treats. 
In honor of Halloween, I'd take a treat over a trick any day!

Just Grandma and Me!

This weekend I get to spend two whole nights at Grandma's...just the two of us! Grandpa went out of town and Grandma wanted some extra security. I think we're going just fine so far...don't you?


See you soon Grandpa :)

The ball

Like most dogs, I love balls. Not like that, you sicko! I love tennis balls, baseballs, even croquet balls! Give me a ball to chase and I'm the happiest dog alive.  That is part of why I love going to Grandma and Grandpa's house so much.  With a great backyard (thanks to the Crabs family too!) I get just enough running and play time to completely wear me out.

With Mom and Dad off at a wedding, I spent the weekend at Grandma and Grandpa's. This weekend I was lucky enough to have GGpa Bob and GGma Norma in town to play with! GGpa Bob loves to sleep outside so I tried to sleep out there with him.  The only thing was that he really wanted to sleep and I figured this was just a chance for more play time! After placing the wet ball right next to his cheek several times without getting to actually chase it, Grandma finally brought me in to sleep inside. What a party pooper!

Luckily I had a chance to play with GGpa Bob today to make up for it.  Here I am waiting patiently for him to throw my ball (I have already placed it nicely right next to him on the chair):


When I came back from chasing it across the yard he was gone! I tried putting the ball on the chair again in hopes that might bring back my play buddy.


After realizing that wasn't going to work I gave up on GGpa Bob and tried Mom, who was relaxing in the hammock...




Luckily Mom did let me chase the ball a few more times. She knows the drill...I'm a happy boy as long as I have the ball!

I'm going to college!

Ok well I'm not actually going yet but if I did I would definitely choose one of these colleges! According to the New York Times, a growing number of schools are letting their students bring their pets to college and are even renovating dorms to make them more pet friendly. Look, dogs in dorms!


Stephens College in Columbia, MO has a "Pet Central" dorm that has a pet council which sets the guidelines and rules for pets and their parents. They even have work-study jobs in an in-dorm kennel that has pet daycare during the day. It is about time! Check out the article here and let me know where to send my application!

Welcome to the Lakeshow

Mom and dad had some friends over the other day to watch "the Lakeshow" which really didn't make any sense at all--there was no lake and no show, just yelling at the TV and plenty of eating. I'm still trying to figure it out. Anyways, their friends Jason and Ruby brought along a nice toy for me! Meet Roman, my new favorite little guy:




Cute huh? Yep, almost as cute as me. Almost.

Happy Memorial Day!

Memorial Day in San Diego is all about the beach--dog beach of course! With only two weeks left before we I have to put mom and dad back on their leashes we tried to enjoy the beautiful day as much as we could!

Hmmm maybe this is why I keep digging up Grandma and Grandpa's yard?

Check out how cute my best friend and I are in the back of Aunt Ashley's car:


I hope you enjoyed the holiday with your friends and family too!

To catch a predator...

Mom got into a crafty mood the other day and planted some little friends for me on the balcony:


There used to be three of the cute glass ones in the picture above but somehow this happened...
We still have no idea how!!! I mean, it couldn't have been me, look at my little innocent face. We are taking tips though to catch this violent criminal so keep an eye out...

My rematch with the bike

You all probably remember my last run-in with a bike which didn't end too well. Luckily this one had a much happier result! Mom and dad bought bikes last week at Black Mountain Bicycles and they have had a great time getting extra exercise and spending time together. Last weekend they went riding on Saturday and Sunday and Dad has continued to ride every day since! A much more serious rider than Mom (he's got the clip-in shoes and everything!), he guesses he has rode almost 100 miles this week!

The only bummer for me has been that I can't go along :( Mom thought after my last bike drama I might not be too keen on the bike idea and she was right--I was apprehensive at first. But after a little encouraging and lots of "good boys" I was ready to give it a try. And it was awesome!! Check it out:

Here I am riding with Dad...

And with Mom...
They are happy bike-lovers and now I am too!
I'm looking forward to another ride soon though for now I need a nap! Have a great weekend :)

I play hard!

I haven't written in so long!!! I can't blame it all on mom really, it's just that I've been so busy with trips to the park, the beach, and so much more. Today I have a picture and a video from a recent trip to the park. I played so hard and long that by the time mom and dad were ready to leave I couldn't even walk! Check it out:

Mom seems to think it's hilarious but I just didn't have any energy left! It's tough being a dog!

My latest antics

You may know that one of my favorite pastimes is hiding my bone. Sometimes I hide it under my bed, sometimes in Mom and Dad's bed, and occasionally I leave it right in the middle of Grandma and Grandpa's living room floor (I still can't figure out how they ALWAYS find it). Here is one of my latest innovations. Mom seemed to find it funny for some reason...

Funny enough that she took two pictures for you...
This was my "why are you laughing crazy lady, I didn't do anything" face

Later that same day I found a piece of brown paper Mom was throwing away but that seemed awfully wasteful so I put it to good use.

Check out the next little series of action pics. Mom just loves that camera.


It kind of looks like I'm smiling but I was definitely showing that paper who is boss. I think it got the message. So how about you? What is your favorite pastime?

I like popsicles!

As much as Dad likes to say Mom is the one who spoils me, we now have proof it is not always Mom who is at fault...

And yes, that's right...a blog two days in a row!!!

The beach in February...my life is good!

Hello everyone! Here are some pics and videos from my most recent trip to dog beach. As you can tell, I am getting to be quite the little swimmer! I am much better now at fetching the ball and actually bringing it back to Dad to throw again which certainly makes it easier and more fun for him. Ok first the pics...







Ok now my videos! In this first one Dad does this cool thing where he buries the ball in the sand and I save it! It's a fun game :)

video

And in this one I go swimming!!! Mom and Dad thought it was so funny! Oh and you'll have to excuse Mom's shaky video skills, she's still learning...

So what about all of you? What's the weather like where you are? And do you miss me???
