Dog Days (but only for SOME!)

Last saturday was a very very sad day for me. I was in the kitchen when I heard Mecki get very excited. I ran to peer through the gate and saw Mom putting a harness on him. Hmm, I thought, usually I am the only one with a harness. Well apparently it was Dog Days at Mecki's friend Rigby's estate and due to this photo below...I was not going :

The photo, which as you can see, is Dad with some people I don't know. Dad was not going to Dog Days so neither could I. Shockingly, Mom picked Mecki over me! I am her favorite! Or so I thought. But lately, to be honest, I have been trying to bond with Dad. Mom took some photos of me all snuggled up to Dad. I think she is jealous and that is why she took Mecki! When they came back, both Mom and Mecki smelled like Rigby! And Mecki was so tired that he collapsed on the floor and didn't move for the rest of the day/night! Even when I jumped all over him and sat on him, he would not play. I was allowed to go last year, Dad walked me around (and Mom stuck me in a tree! But I liked that-it put me up higher and I could survey the territory).

But Mom still dragged me out for our walk. Also, to add insult to injury, Mecki won't sleep upstairs with us! Mom and I go up to bed like normal. I get my cookie and squawk if she doesn't turn out the lights quickly enough. Dad comes up, but Mecki stays downstairs and sleeps on the couch or the bed.

Mom said that I need braces! How rude! The photo below is my offended look!
Saturday was a good day. I could tell as soon as I saw Mom holding my harness. The harness always means fun!  I started barking then and didn't stop until we rolled into the parking lot at Old Westbury Gardens! Once I got out of the car, though, I got nervous (plus the gravel hurt my paws so I lay down) and Mom had to pick me up and carry me to the lawn. Once there, I dragged her up the hill to Rigby's wall. I sniffed around and a small boy came by and gave me a belly rub, which was AWESOME! Then I saw Rigby and Grace! I started barking again! Rigby came over and I bounced around him. Mom gave us some carrots and apple (healthy food!) but Grace had tasty doggy cookies!
  So lets talk about Mom and Grace. Mom always takes rude photos of me! Grace is much better at photographing the "real" me. Here's some examples of Mom's photos:
 Obviously not a great photo of my superphotogenic friend, Rigby! Mom forgot to give him a cookie after the click-he is displeased! Although he did like eating my apples and carrots!

 Pictures of my back-Mom is very good at getting those!
 Now here is a magnificent photo of me, taken , of course, by Grace! You can't get any more adorable than that!

Here are some ok photos that Mom took. This is Rigby and me by Rigby's wall. We are already exhausted!

 Rigby, looking fashionable as usual.
All in all, it was an awesome day! Especially since Bastille didn't come! That way he couldn't push me out of the way, and sit or step on me with his bad manners! Plus Mom did not put me in a tree although there was talk of putting Rigby in the tree. When we got home, I was so tired that I collapsed on the floor and didn't even attempt to drag Bastille around by a leg. I think Rigby had fun too!

More snow!

This is turning into a great winter! Lots of snow for me to wiggle around in! In fact, Mom had us dressed in our sweaters and she let me run free in the backyard, well I hurled myself into the snow. I rolled on my back, I rolled on my front and buried myself. I was one big snowball when I was done. Sadly Mom banished me to the kitchen cause the snow had bonded with my fur and sweater and she could not get the sweater off me!
Here are some videos of us playing in the snow. I think Bastille is starting to like the snow.
There is a lot of snow out there. Mom put my "candycane" sweater on and let me outside. I didn't want to go in the deep snow but Mecki made me! video video
Last night Mecki tried to get me in trouble. Mom had give us half a cookie and then put the box back under the tv. I was snuffling around for crumbs cause no one feeds me enough. Mom walked into the kitchen and Mecki grabbed the box of cookies and threw it on the floor. Grandpere yelled NO! I froze and Mom came in to find cookies all over the floor. She picked them up before I could grab one. Mom was very surprised to find out it was Mecki and not me who did that!

Fun in the snow!

Unlike my tall and handsome friend Rigby, it is a wee bit harder for Bastille and I to get around in the snow. But Mom dug out a little area for us and Dad used the snowblower so Mom could take us out for a walk. We thanked her by dragging her on some ice and knocking her down in front of the neighbors. It was fun! video
The best part was when I got to climb Mount Daddy! Mom helped me up and then I ran all over Dad and stuck my bottom in his face! Dad was scared!

Mecki's Christmas

My christmas was much better than Bastille's cause I didn't get clothes! I got an antler (but decided that I liked Bastille's better so ate his), a bone with cheese and bacon in it, bully sticks and chicken from my bff Rigby! I also got to help Mom wrap presents

 And I got to snuggle with Dad on the couch, and believe me, lately there has NOT been room on the couch for snuggling! Bastille keeps using the couch and Mom as a trampoline when I am chasing him!
Plus I got to see Oma Andrea, Alec and Andre Thomas! So many people to greet and bark at until they show me affection! So overall a good christmas!

Bastille's Christmas

Apparently this was the christmas of clothing. What I asked Santa for was food! A lot of food! I did get some bully sticks, and an antler (which Mecki and I already destroyed), a bone with bacon and cheese in it, and some chicken ( from Rigby). But Mom is very stingy with it!
       Even though it was super warm out, Mom got me a red parka...
 I'm not sure how I feel about it. She made me try it on at the store so it wasn't a complete surprise! Then later I got a raincoat from my Aunt Mary (along with other doggie shirts - of which Grace said some were a lie, I'm assuming she meant the "naughty" one and not the "nice" or "dear santa, I was a very good dog for christmas" one.  Mom said I looked very cute in my raincoat!

Dad's party

Dad had a party on Saturday. Mom was a little worried about how many people I would try to eat, but Dad was one step ahead. He gave all the party people treats. Whenever I walked over to someone, they would give me a treat! It was awesome! I have never been fed so well (cause I also managed to beat Mecki to any food that was dropped).

It was one of the best days ever! Plus then Dad made a fire! Mecki doesn't like smoke and fire so he stayed inside with Grandpere. It was a bit windy, so I ran around chasing orange glowing things (Mom said they were embers. I chomped on whatever ones I could get. When Mom finally took me upstairs to bed, I was so tired that I fell asleep (snoring LOUDLY) before she even turned the lights out! When Dad brought Mecki up, Mecki was tired too, so tired that he would not get up and go outside Sunday morning.
