First Thanksgiving

Technically, this is the first Thanksgiving that I have celebrated! My parents have been away at this time of year ever since I've been around so this is the first time I got to participate in the rituals that are Thanksgiving.  I'm still a bit confused as to the origins of the day, but love the idea of spending time with family and friends and EATING ALOT!

First we watched the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade and saw Santa Claus arrive. That was pretty exciting. He's been pretty generous to me so I was glad to see the old guy return.

After a long walk to make us really hungry, we sat down with our dear friends upstairs, Yvonne & Jerry and had a nice Thanksgiving dinner. Gheez, you should have seen all that food!

My good friends, Henry, Gizmo  and I got canned dog food . . . a real treat, but I would have liked some of those mashed potatoes.

Now apparently, we are resting up so we can have some pumpkin cheesecake. I hope I get some of that.  We sure are blessed and hope you are all spending quality time with people and furry friends that you love too!

Halloween Costume Contest

 Today we went to PetCo for a Halloween Costume contest. My Grandma Yvonne saw it in the paper and thought I should enter. Below is a link to the video of me strutting my stuff when my name was called.

 Here is a second video when my name was called for first place! That's my Grandma Vyonne clapping for me along with others in the store.

Everyone is pretty proud. I just want to get out of this costume!

Pumpkin Shopping

I love fall!  The weather is cooler so I can go in the car again. This weekend we searched for a good pumpkin.

Is that a good one over there?

What a minute . . .  maybe that is the one over there in the middle of the pile! Gheez, it is hard to decide.
Okay, This is it! I found the perfect pumpkin!

Even though I'm napping here, I almost back to my normal self. I really wanted to play with this toy, but I'm not supposed to get excited at all for another day so decided just to snuggle instead.

Surgery Update

Dr. Christman decided to let me come home tonight. It was a good thing . . . they didn't have internet access there.

 I got to have soft dog food for dinner. Boy did I love that. Almost made it worth it.

I'm a little sore, but the drugs are really good. I'm on pain meds and anti-inflamatory so am resting comfortably. I also had about 6 teeth out that were abscessed (too many for my mouth) and my nostrils were a bit too small, so those were enlarged.

 Here I am with some of my favorite toys by my side. I even tried to play a little with my Papa, but Dr. Christman said take it easy so I'll sign off for tonight.

Tomorrow I have to go in to the vet to have some surgery done. I have an elongated soft palate that is beginning to interfere with my breathing - especially when I get excited. I mostly have problems when I get excited and over-excerise like I do when I play with other dogs. Since I love playing, my parents have decided to have the surgery. Plus, it will be better for me in the long run. They are a little worried, but I know I will be fine. Send thoughts my way and I'll send an update as soon as I'm able.

Me getting used to the mask the doctor will wear.

Last of the summer days

This is me and my papa enjoying the extended summer in Seattle.

New Job

My Mom got a new job in another school district. I am so disappointed to leave all my good friends in Peninsula. I even have more friends than are just in this picture! Some of them keep food in their desks for me. I wonder what they are going to do with that now??

Today was my last day on the job (tomorrow is my Mom's).  They had a little send off for me. I was too busy kissing everyone to pay attention to the camera because I wanted to be sure to say goodbye to everyone. I will miss everyone so much!!!

Summer Vacation

We took a trip to Arizona for a week. We rented a van which I love (easy in and out for me), but my folks loaded it with stuff that had to go down there so I was a little cramped in the back.

It was quite warm in California on the way down so we stopped for a  break at our favorite burger joint in Redlands (Eureka Burgers). The nice wait staff there brought me my own bowl of water the beer was good too!

Arizona was over 100 on most days, but we went to my Aunt Jill's pool to stay cool. Apparently you are suppose to use these floating devices in the water, but I really don't like the water so I use them on the land. My parents would dip me in it to stay cool, but I really panic in the water.

Summer's finally here

I get to sleep in now, and stay home with my Papa. Ah ah , the dog days of summer! My Mom still has to go to work, but is taking vacation next week. We are driving down to Arizona again. I hope it isn't too hot for me.

4th Birthday

I celebrated my 4th Birthday!  I had a party with Yvonne, Jerry and Gizmo.

My mom made me a really good cake. I shared it with Gizmo. The humans had homemade carmel corn instead.

Tired of this weather!

More snow and freezing rain today. I'm bored. No doggy daycare . . . no playing outside . . .just laying by the fire. At least our family is together and warm!

Snow in Seattle!

Wow!  We had about 3 or 4 inches of snow here in Seattle today. 
Is that a snowdog? Does he want to play?

I love the snow!!  My Mom got a bit nervous while shooting this video, but I was having a ball.

AZ for Christmas Break

We just returned from a wonderful two weeks in our vacation home in Fountain Hills. The highlight of the trip was seeing my wonderful cousins. Here I am walking around the fountain with Paige and Jamie. It was quite hot for me. Thank goodness I got a gulpy water bottle for Christmas so I could rehydrate!
