My human is talking about something called Halloween. I don't quite know what that's all about but she put me in here with this fireplace screen to keep me from helping. I don't know why. If kids are going to come to the door shouldn't I jump up and greet them and lick their faces and maybe get a piece of candy or two myself? Why won't she let me help?

New Rope Toy

Look! I have a new rope toy. My human isn't happy about how fast I go through them but she says it's better than me chewing on pillows and blankets and sheets and other stuff.....

Humans are very strange. My human decided to try to put me in something she called a costume. She wanted to take pictures for a contest on Addie's blog. Well! I made it very clear THAT wasn't going to happen! Then she tied this ridiculous scarf around my neck.

I took off the scarf as soon as she finished taking this picture. I don't need anything silly like clothes to make me look beautiful!

Drapes and Blankeys

I found out how to pull down the drapes! I don't know why my human wasn't happy that I found a way to look out. So I comforted myself by playing with my blankey. Sometimes I put all my toys on my blankey and sometimes I take it with me when I want to lie down in another part of the room.

Books, Awards and Windows

My friend Suka gave me this really great award. I'm wagging my tail 'cuz it's so cool. I'm so glad I've found so many new friends on the internet!

My human has lots of books. So I thought maybe I could figure out why they were so important to her. But she got really upset when I snuffled around in the box she had on the floor. If they weren't for me, why did she put them there?

I am kind of grouchy because one of my windows disappeared. I wasn't trying to break the blinds. I didn't chew them or anything. But...this hole kept getting bigger. And now there's something in front of the window and I can't look out the way I did before. My human calls them drapes.

The Very Long Week

My human says it's been a long week. I had to take that medicine again and my human is muttering something about me going nuts. But I just had lots of energy—honest!

But my human is grouchy just 'cuz I try to chew through my leash when I see other dogs when we're out on our walks. I don't know why she doesn't want me barking at them and trying to run to them. Once I got so excited I flipped upside down even in my harness!

I did chew a hole in my tennis ball but I've been really good about putting my toys on my blankey every time I find them somewhere else.

Anyway, my human has been doing lots of work on the computer. I keep trying to climb in her lap and remind her to play but she hasn't been listening very well. At least she's finally putting up my post. I've been trying to tell her to do it for days!

Pet Blessing Day

My human took me to a pet blessing this morning. Right before we left for the pet blessing I was out in the back yard and I FOUND MUD!!! I came in to show my human and she made the funniest sound when I jumped up on her and then on the bed and ran all around the living room. I think the carpet looks prettier with my paw prints everywhere but she didn't seem very happy about it. And she wouldn't come play with me in the mud either.

I wore my new red harness to the pet blessing. I don't like my harness very much but my human says I tug too much without it plus now she can hook me to a seat belt and I can't try to climb in the front seat while she drives any more.

There were lots of other dogs at the pet blessing and I barked at every one of them! We stopped at the store on the way home to get me more food and I barked at every dog there, too! I don't understand why my human wouldn't let me off the leash to play with them. We could have had lots of fun running around the store together.

It was a really good day and I don't understand why my human used words I've never heard before or keeps rubbing her forehead and saying she could use a good shot of something called whiskey right now.

New Game and New Toy

I found a new game! I get on the couch and drop my toy over the back and then I jump down after it! It's lots of fun and it makes my human laugh.

Oh and my human got me a new rope toy. It's for dogs over 85 lbs. I weigh about half that but I kind of totally destroyed the one for my weight so she's hoping this one works better. Here's a picture of the shreds of the old one with the new one.
