Halloween

Halloween is coming up this week.  I don’t really know what that is about, but I do know that some people have added some strange looking things to their yard.  I’m not really sure what to make of them.

Are they friend or foe?!  I don’t know!  Better just bark at them to make sure they know I’m in charge, woof!

The pet store

When I am lucky, I can convince Daddy to take me to the pet store, oh boy oh boy!  I always know when we arrive and I am sure to let everyone know how excited I am.

Why do I like going to the pet store so much, you ask?  Well, in addition to being able to pick out new food, treats, and toys, I know that the kind people behind the counter always have something tasty for me.

They can’t resist this cute face, especially when I turn on the charm.  I usually walk away with a bunch of treats in my belly, yum!  I can’t wait to go back to the pet store again soon, woof!

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!

Mommy has been too busy to help me blog, but I’ve been enjoying life.  Yesterday was particularly fun!  I went to my first Norwich/Norfolk Noripaluza and it was great!  I met 26 other Norwich and 2 Norfolk, I’ve never seen so many of my kin in one place!

Want to meet some of my new friends?  Here they are!  This is Calle, she is a puppy.  Mommy thinks she is my new puppy girlfriend.

She is super cute and wanted to play!

I also hung out with Gus.  He’s a handsome guy and his parents really loved me.

This is Honey Badger.  I’m not really sure if he liked me saying hi.  He got to sit in a wagon, I’m jealous!

This is Eddie.  Eddie and I fought over this taco, but after it somehow disappeared, I think we’re okay now.

This is Gidget.  She is Norfolk and just wanted to give me kisses!  She is a sweetie.

This is Gable, who was more interested in his Mom’s sandwich than me.

These puppies are Winston and Oliver.  They are siblings and their grandma helped organize the event so they were sure to greet everyone at the party.

This is also Winston, but he didn’t like me.

I had so much fun!

I can’t wait to see everyone again in October!  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!

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!

Shopping with Daddy

Daddy and I went shopping, oh boy oh boy!  I love going to the pet store!

We picked up some yummy treats for me.  I love Char Tar, they are one of my absolute favorite treats ever and they’re good for my tummy.  I always hope that Mommy or Daddy gives me Char Tar.  Daddy also picked out these Punk-n-Pye’s cookies that I’ve been enjoying a lot.  Let’s go back to the pet store and buy some more stuff for me soon, okay?  Woof!

Best walkies!

I had the best walkies ever today!  I ran into a bunch of my friends: Hera, Cricket, Jade, Happy and Goose.  We got to walk around the neighborhood together.

I love being with my pack, it’s so much better than walkies just with Mommy or Daddy.  I hope I run into them again soon, woof!

 

Sunbathing

It gets pretty warm in the summer, but morning sun is perfect for some sunbathing.

It feels so good!  I didn’t want to come back inside with Mommy and Daddy, but they insisted that I come in before I got too hot.  I guess they were right, but I still love to lay in the sun.  Woof!

It’s still warm out today, but way cooler than it was last week.  I had a fun summertime walkies this afternoon, including checking out this hydrangea.

It’s so pretty!  I love seeing the sights and smells in the neighborhood for my walkies.  Even better, I got a treat after taking this photo for being a good boy.  I am a good boy, aren’t I?  Woof!
