Playing a trick on Mom

Early yesterday morning, Dad and I played a big trick on Mom.It was awesome! Mom got up to get a drink of water. While she was out of the room, Dad opened my crate and put me in the bed. When Mom came back in the room, she put her hand down to pull back the sheet and I licked her hand! She was very surprised! Then she was mad cause I was lying in "her" spot. We all know that side and that pillow are mine! That is where I sleep when she goes away!

Dog Days!!!!!!!!!!

So, yesterday when Mom came into the kitchen with my harness I knew it would be one of the BEST. DAYS. EVER!!!!And I was totally right! I was so excited that I ran around the kitchen howling while Mom got ready. That woke up Dad and he came running down to see what was wrong! Mom took me outside and we got into the car. The top was down so I could stand up and look outside and let the wind blow through my fur! We drove and drove and finally pulled into a parking spot. I know this place I thought, this is my bff Rigby's estate! Then Mom said "Who's that?" and pointed next to me. I looked over and there was my bff Rigby, his sister Grace and his Mom. I was so excited that I barked and barked until Mom finally let me out of the car. Getting to see Rigby is awesome, plus I get to play one of my favorite games with his sister. It's called, "so you think you can take a photo of me!" Grace managed to get some good ones-she is very sneaky! Mom took some videos. I decided that since I am a big boy now, I do not need to jump all over Rigby-he seemed a little relieved. Enjoy the photos and movies!

And here are the photos, thanks to Grace!
 Here we are resting a bit
 Here we are dragging our Moms through the estate! So much to smell and see!
 A rare "Mecki's face" photo! Grace is very sneaky!
 You think Rigby can pose? Here is my "I am tots adorbs face!"
 
Gotcha Grace! Here's a normal shot of me!

Then when Grace was occupied I ran up for a 3D action shot! Mom likes this one!

And once again, running towards Grace! I didn't want her to feel lonely! It was so much fun! I love going to Rigby's estate!

We're back

Well I finally got Mom out of retirement. How rude was it that she figured she could take time off from my blog and writing about my life! I apologize to all the people who were sad when they had no blog to read. So now we will catch up on stuff. Tomorrow Mom promises to write about my fun day with my bff, (when she put on my harness I knew it would be an awesome day!) but for now watch these exciting movie of me...

Oh, and as you all know how Mom loves to mock me, she is now going to tell you about my run in (literally) with the fire hydrant. Mom and I were outside standing by the fire hydrant. Not to be stereotypical, but it is one of my favorite spots. I was sniffing around, minding my own business when all of a sudden a kid rode by on a skateboard. Now I HAVE to protect my house and I am a hunting dog so if anything moves, I'm after it. I took of running and since we were right by the fire hydrant, I ran full blast into it. I bounced off it, sat down and looked around to see if anyone had noticed. Sadly Mom was laughing hysterically so I knew she had seen. I ignored her and tried to run after the kid again, but Mom wouldn't let me.

Free!

This morning Mom was sitting in the kitchen-reading and totally ignoring me! I sat right by her leg and cried pitifully. Every once in a while she would reach down and pet me, but she was NOT giving me her full attention! Finally she asked me if I'd like to go outside and play! I ran right for the kitchen door! She opened it up and let me out. I ran right over to Dad's sneaker and grabbed it. I turned around but Mom was gone. Then she came outside again and chased me! We had a lot of fun as you can see in the video.

Eventually she got tired and tried to make me go inside. But I was having none of that! She'd just ignore me again and read! So I ran around some more. She offered me a cookie and I grabbed it and ran off. But then, she went straight to the sound that always gets me inside (against my better judgement!). She opened the cold cut drawer in the fridge. I heard that sound, froze, and then ran as fast as I could for the kitchen door wondering what kind of cheese she had for me. Sadly there was no cheese, but I did get a peanut butter cookie!

Not such a big boy after all.

This morning when Mom let me out of my crate, I ran around with my newly replaced crate toy! This is my rope dog (#4) that lives in my crate. Generally it is just a piece of rope as I like to eat appendages. Mom was all happy this morning cause she thought he was still whole. "Just think" , she said to me, "you are growing up and becoming a big boy! You've had that toy for three days and he still has all his appendages!". But she was wrong. I had eaten an ear. When she went to pick it up, she noticed it only had one ear and sighed!

Catching up!

Well finally, Mom is going to catch up on stuff. It's been a busy week. First of all, as you know, I was forced to have my bottom and belly shaved. It was a horrible experience, and I demanded payment in the form of cookies:
You can see how anxious I am to make sure I get the cookie. All my attention is completely focused on it!
    The second thing is that my Aunt Jen arrived from France! I was very excited to see her!
My Aunt Joan was a bit worried that Aunt Jen would steal me and take me to France, but I wouldn't want to take that long plane ride. Then my Grandpa came over and of course Mom had to take another photo. In this photo though, Grandpa and I have the exact same expression on our faces! You can't tell, but I have my front legs crossed too!
And then of course there was the massive amount of snow that I have been able to play in lately. Everyone seems to  hate it, but I love bouncing around in it!

But the best part of the week is that Dad came home! I had missed him so much! It is not much fun being at home with only Mom all the time! I didn't want to let him know how happy I was that he was back, cause he should not have gone away to begin with! And he's lucky that I did not eat his valentine's day card or present!

Then Dad and I played a game!

So now you are all caught up in the exciting events of my life. Sadly I have not discovered a pizza tree in my backyard like my bff Rigby did, but I did find some sourdough bread that Aunt Jen had thrown outside for the birds!

Today's torture...

Brought to you by Mom of course! Today we went for a ride, but it wasn't to a good place. Apparently Mom decided it was bottom shaving time! Only they shaved part of my belly too, so now it is a tad cold  when I play outside. I made her give me 2 cookies afterwards!
