The Big Dog Bowl

Ok, you got me. I went walking in The Dog Bowl. NOT swimming! WALKING! I will not swim. I'm sorry. We went back to the second house a week ago, and I went in. But only at a depth that I could still stand in. No deeper. I drank the water, too. And GUESS WHAT?!?! The big doggie didn't get mad at me! (yet!) Maybe he is nice after all. I don't know. But anyway, I went swimmi-er-walking. Sorry, I meant walking. I don't swim. I walk. I DON'T SWIM. I WALK! Anyway, you know that I'm doing okay, because I am here to post this post. The doggie didn't get me.....uh, oh! What if he still tries to get me?!?!? No! I'm doomed!!! No, no, no!! It can't be! That doggie won't get me. No, he won't. He won't, he won't, he won-oh yes he will! He is a big, scary, smart doggie (I think), and he WILL get me!! Oh, nooo! I have to go hide! I have to go! Ok, good-bye! I love you blogger-pups! (especially you, Boomer!) Cross your fingers that I will be here to post another post!
P.S. Check out a new dog blog I found. The doggie's name is Maggie Rose. She is going to have little pups!

Good-bye, My Little Friend!

This is Happy. No, he is not happy, I mean, he is, but he IS!.....ok, let me try again.
This is a dog, and his name is Happy. He is an old friend of mine. He is a Maltese-dog-what-ch-ma-call-it. I don't know. Correct me. I THINK he is a Maltese. Anyway, his owner is my human's groomer. Mommy says"I'm visiting Happy!", and i know that she will be gone and come back with short fur. Anyway, when Happy's mommy went on vacation, we got him! For 10, full days! He is so cool. Seriously! He has a sweater! Like my friend Daisy Mae, the dog. I must say, Daisy ALWAYS has the most awesome clothes! Well, Happy just has a little black sweater, because his mommy has his fur clipped and he gets cold in the winter. Poor little guy! But that short fur will come in handy now! See, I have him posted to say good-bye. I will no longer be able to see my little friend. He is moving to some warm, tropical island-thing, where it is totally warm, ALL the time. I must say, I would miss having that white stuff on the ground sometimes, but he won't! He always got lost in it. Man, that stinks. Good thing the sweater was black! I just wanted to say a friendly good-bye, and good luck to my friend. Have a safe trip, Happy!
Well, that's all there is to post today. I will post again, soon!

Beach Days

Sorry, I haven't posted in awhile everyone! I hope you all are having a great summer. I am! These pictures show you where I was this past week. At our other house! See, for some odd reason the humans decided that two houses are better then one, and so this is our summer house. We go there every summer and hang out. Of course, I'm always hanging out year round, but the humans don't.( don't ask me why, with all the green paper they have I would definitely hang out all the time. It's not like they have to work! Sheesh, they have a lot of stuff to learn.) Anyway, it's really nice there. They have this awesome big water-place-thingy. I don't know what it's called. I think of it as a big water bowl. Anyway, they go swimming in it and stuff. I don't go in. I'm afraid the doggy who owns the bowl will come, and judging by the size of the bowl, I think the doggy must be pretty mean and scary. So, I play it safe and just stay out. Now, you are probably wondering what the difference between the first two pictures is, but believe it or not, there is a difference. In the first picture my nose is different then the second one. If you enlarge it, one at a time, it looks like I am moving my nose while I sniff the air, which is precisely what I am doing. And by the way I have my eyes closed in the second pic. you know that I am just loving the smell of the air there. Even if the water bowl is scary, at least it smells nice. In the third picture I am staring down the bars of the outside place thing (it has a fence there, so it blocked my view of down below. Stupid, huh?!?! To put a fence there! It's not like there's a 100 foot drop or something! .......oh, right, there is.) to inspect the boats moving below. People actually go boating on the water bowl. Humans are so oblivious to the danger of doing that. Ugh! Anyway, in the last picture is a squirrel. There are lots of them there, probably because doggies always have to be on leashes and they can't catch them that way. Those animals are just way too smart. Anyhow, I know this was a long post, but there was a lot to say. Hope you all have a great week! Happy summer!

Neighbor Dog 2- Cruiser

This dog lives down the road from us at the mini horse place. I have never seen him live, I admit, but my mommy took the picture to show me, and told me a little about him. He is a funny looking dog (if I do say so myself), and not the brightest, apparently. He chases sticks very well, and as you can see, he loves them. He is a pug mix (or so I have heard, so if someone can correct me, be my guest!!). I have never heard of a pug dog, but that is what he is. He looks hilarious!!! He has a funny brown face, and a white body, an-oops, you guys have eyes, my bad, you can see what he looks like! So anyhow that's him, and oh, his name is Cruiser. Apparently that is a type of car or something. Funny name, I must admit. All around a funny dog. So, there he is, Cruiser!!!!!
Have a good weekend, everyone!!

My Fashion Sense

Ok, you have to admit, a dog has to have their own fashion, especially a girl dog like me. So, I thought I'd show you mine! These are my accessories. I have 6 collars, three leashes, and one bandanna. And yes, I do need them all. Ok, the pink collar with the green spots is my Valentines Day collar, though I do like to wear it around other boy dogs to impress them (like Boomer, for example). The red collar with the white stripes was the first collar I ever got. I wear it with my red leash, although I never use that leash so I don't use the collar that much, but anyhow. The silver collar with the holly branches on it is my winter holiday collar. I ONLY wear it in the winter. It's new. The blue collar serves the same purpose as the red one, which is no purpose at all except to act as a boring collar. Now, the black one with the red and yellow splashes is my main collar. Somehow, I always end up wearing it. It is pretty cool, though. The metal collar (my least favorite) is only used when I get a bath and don't stand still. We had it because, believe it or not, I used to pull on the leash as a pup. I know, unbelievable. Especially from a German Shepherd mix dog. Anyhow, I just had to show you guys my equipment. I have more, just not all there. I hope you guys are all having a good summer!
