Fantastic day for a walk.

We went for a walk today when Mom got home from the shop.

Perfect day for a stroll. This is me leading the way.

Look at that, "Sit and Stay"
Perfectly trained. All I need is a bath and I'll be ready for the Westminister Dog Show. Non-sporting group, you better watch out.

And here I am just checking to see who's been around.

Hope we go for another walk tomorrow.... can't get enough fresh air.

I hope the day gets better.

My morning didn't start off too well. So the floss for my Mom's project got tangled all around my head.... that was my fault? She should know better than to leave it ON THE KITCHEN TABLE.

Hope you're all having a good day. (if you come let me out, I'll share my treats)

My first party...

Wow, it's fun to have a birthday.

We started with a hamburger from Dairy Queen... really yummy.

Then we opened the presents. I think that was the bestest part. I got lots of treats and two really cool toys. Mom is hoping that I will chew on the green one and leave the socks alone.

The cake was nice. According to my Mom, the lady that did the writing on it must have been drunk. I think that means happy.

So now to wait til next year and have another party. I can't believe I'll get to have one every August 18th.

Hope you all get to have a party on your Birthday.


Today is my Birthday

Today is my Birthday, I am now one, I'm BIG, not a puppy any more.

Tonight we are having a little party to celebrate. Mom is picking up the cake and there will be treats and toys.

This morning, we started off the day with a new toy wrapped in tissue paper and Mom sang me the birthday song. The toy was great but the tissue was fantastic. I think Mom is still picking it up.

All I really wanted for my birthday was a small notebook computer so during the day when I'm in my kennel, I could blog and facebook. My parents didn't think it was a good idea. They said I could meet undesirable dogs in chat rooms. I assured them I was smarter than that and guess what.... I got my little computer.

Here I am out on the deck just checking it out, posting a little facebook and doing
my blog. Now I can keep you up to date on all the things going on in my life.

Tonight is the official party... I'm excited, did I mention the treats?

Hope you all have a celebration kind of day.

Cuddling with my Mom

Next week is my first birthday. My parents say it's hard to believe how fast that year has flown.

I suppose when you turn one, they don't consider you a puppy anymore. Does that means some of the things I do that they blame on the "puppy stage" will no longer be acceptable behavior? Hmmmm, I better find out.

Well, I sure hope that cuddling on my Mom's lap while she does her bookwork is still going to be OK.

She says it's kind of a challenge to juggle me and use the computer at the same time, but she's getting really good at it. (she should be after a year's practice). It's one of my favorite things to do each morning. I'd hate to find out that "Big" boys don't do that.

I guess we'll just have to wait til the 18th and see if things change. For some reason, I doubt they will. I think my Mom enjoys the cuddling as much as I do, she even calls me little Punkin' Pal while holding on to me.

I love my life.

Caught in the act.

OK, yes, I was snacking on the flowers again.

I got all the good ones that were hanging down, before someone showed up and started squirting with that gun again.

I've heard rumors that we're getting Mum plants for the deck soon.

Hummm, larger snacks....this could work to my advantage.

Have a Naughty Free Day,

I'm almost 1, where did the time go?

Can you believe it? On August 18th I will be a year old. It just seems like a week ago that I arrived.

Where did the time go? They say time flies when you're having fun, well I have had lots.

Next Thursday we're having a birthday party. No big blown out event, just Mom and I (Dad works late) and a McDonalds hamburger. I've never had one before, I usually just eat Science Diet. I'm really looking forward to it.

The plan is to make it a picnic on a blanket. That'll be a first as well.

I heard the other Quahog's actually had parties with guests, dinner and cake. My Mom says she wants it to be a little more intimate, just the two of us. I wonder if I'll have a cake. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

I'll let you know how my day goes.

Geese don't like little Boston Terriers.

Yesterday, my Mom and I drove to a new place to take a walk. It was in a neighborhood with nice homes and lots of grassy areas.

I really was enjoying the new place, BUT... while we were there a few Canadian Geese arrived. WOW, they're big.

My Mom suggested that we not go too close to them. I just wanted to get a better look, who knows -maybe try to be friends.

Well, Mom was right. See the one in the picture with its head up.... that's the spotter. His job is too watch for little Boston Terriers and then tell the others.

All of a sudden he started to yell and come towards us. Being "tough" I tried to advance, my Mother was pulling me in the opposite direction the whole time. The goose came fast... squawking and carrying on. I realized at that point that Geese don't like Boston Terriers.

After we were in the truck, we took the picture - from a distance. From now on we will stay in our own neighborhood when we walk.

For the record, my Mom can really run fast. I couldn't keep up so at times I was airborne like a kite.
