Mommy was too busy to post these last month, but I really enjoyed sakura time.  The cherry blossoms in the neighborhood were so pretty!

Mommy said I had to pose with them, which I did as long as she gave me a treat.  Of course all I really wanted to do was eat the blossoms Mommy and Daddy posed in front of me.  Then they got stuck in my beard and I didn’t really like that.

I can’t wait for next year to eat more sakura–I mean pose with the sakura!  Woof!

Gotcha Day!

Ten years ago, I went on adventure to my forever home.  It included an airplane ride with a strange man who called himself my Daddy and ended with me arriving in my new home.

Ten years later, I can say that I am a very lucky pup.  I’m so happy to have so many special friends and family and I am thankful that Mommy and Daddy love to spoil me.  Now, how about something yummy to eat to celebrate my Gotcha Day?  Extra nums, okay Daddy?  Woof!

Pet store!

I punctured a hole in my very favorite ball, so Daddy and Mommy took me to the pet store to try to find a replacement.  It was so much fun!  I got to look at all the treats and toys and even got to check out the birds and rodents!

I don’t think the budgies wanted to be friends, though.  The best part of the trip was when right before we were getting ready to leave when the nice lady behind the counter gave me a treat.  It’s because I’m such a good boy, right?  I can’t wait until we go to the pet store again, woof!

Groomed

Yesterday was a really stressful day for me because Daddy took me to the groomer.  Everyone says I look super cute now, but I don’t see what was wrong with my old fluffy look.

This is what I look like now:

Yes, a lot less fur after being stripped and taking a bath.  The groomer even gave me this kerchief, which Mommy seems to think is absolutely adorable.  I bet she’s going to make me wear it a lot now.  I’m just waiting for my marrow bone as a reward for being a good boy.  Now is a good time for that, right?  Woof!

Rain

You know, I really haven’t enjoyed all the rain we have been having lately.  I hate getting wet.

Luckily it didn’t rain much today so I didn’t get as soaked as I did in earlier rainstorms this year.  It isn’t fun to be a wet dog!  Woof!

Fleece snuggles

If you have been wondering what I have been up to over the past few weeks, it has involved a lot of snuggling with fleece.  Grandma recently made me more blankies and Mommy and Daddy finally figured out how much I love my fleece blankets and snuggling with them when it is cold.  Here are a few shots:

Now, if only there were some treats involved as well, I would be living the dream!  Woof!

Cousin Perry

I have a new puppy cousin.  His name is Perry.  He is a Shih-tzu/Chihuahua mix and very small.  And very much a puppy.  With a lot of energy.  I met him for the first time right before Christmas.

Mommy, what is this fuzzy thing?!

The first time we met, I made sure to let him know not to be too crazy around me and then we were okay–especially after I stole the treat he hid in his carrier.

Thanks Uncle Chris for this photo…and for giving me a ton of treats for being the bestest boy.  I am the bestest of boys, right?  Woof!

I’m 10 today!

Today is my 10th birthday, can you believe it?  I’m double digits now!  To celebrate, Daddy took me to one of my favorite local pet stores, My Pet Naturally, to pick out a pupcake.  Oh boy, oh boy, it was so exciting to go to the pet store!

We got a peanut butter, carob, and yogurt pupcake.

It was so yummy, even if Mommy only let me eat half.

Yummy!  That was the best birthday pupcake since last year.  I can’t wait to eat the other half of my pupcake.  Maybe tomorrow we can celebrate 10 years and one day?  Woof!

Holiday baking

Oh boy have I been busy!  I want to share a bit of what I have been up to over the past few days, but today I want to talk about helping with holiday baking!  Every year I have a very important role in baking: clean up duty after Mommy and Daddy make peanut butter muffins with Grandma.  It is probably the most important job and I had a lot of cleaning up to do this year!

I take my job very seriously and make sure I clean everything thoroughly.

All clean, Grandma!  Now to deal with that peanut butter tongue…

 

Can’t wait to help Grandma with cleaning up again next year.  Woof!

Wet fur, wet paws

Today was not a fun day, it was raining really hard this morning when I went on my walk with Daddy.  I did not like it one bit.

Daddy eventually picked me up because I didn’t want to walk anymore.  There were too many puddles the size of lakes and rushing rivers streaming to the storm drains.  I don’t like getting wet and I definitely don’t like getting my paws wet.

When we got home, Daddy turned on the heat for me and wrapped me in my blankie.  It was nice, but I was still mad at him for making me go outside in the rain.

I hope it isn’t raining the next time we go out.  I don’t want to get my paws wet again, woof!
