So after Monty went home, Mum and Dad took me on a special adventure. I tried to be patient waiting for them to put all the camping stu...

Watching the World Go By

Mum says it's time I stopped looking out the window and got on with catching up on my blog duties. Apparently, while I've been slacking off and keeping an eye out for the neighbor dogs, I won an award. How about that!


It's from Baby Rocket Dog & Hootie and means that my blog has nectar. Mum says that's something sweet. I don't know how that could have got on my blog because I'm not allowed sweet things.

Some other visitors have stopped by my blog too. Charity, Gary, Katie and Louie from the Happy Haus have tagged me. 

I know all about tagging now, since I got tagged a while back. This time I'm supposed to tell you all 10 honest scraps about myself.

1) I didn't have a daddy for my first 4 years.

2) Mum can get me to do almost anything when she says it's for Tod-daddy.

3) Once, when I was visiting neighbors without my mum knowing, I got a ride home in the front seat of a police truck.

4) I once ate the hair of an enlightened master. It wasn't on his head at the time, but in a special box that was my mum's. I just wanted her to notice me. She was very mad for a while, then laughed a lot.

5) I've been skunked three times!

6) I have a white mark on the back of my neck and people always ask if I'm going gray.

7) I'm scared of thunder and (some) black dogs. I got beaten up by one once and I never forgot it.

8) I don't like dog parks. I used to love going to the dog park, but one day we went and a couple of huskies beat me up. I don't like huskies either.

9) I can jump very high and land ever so softly.

10) I can bark very quietly, so as not to get into trouble when everyone else is asleep.

Now I want to find out some more about Minnie-Moo, Duncan and Amber-Mae. You've all been tagged!

It's hot, hot, hot!

It was very hot today, so Mum and Dad said the only thing for it was to take me to the creek. Hooray!

Mum didn't get in, for some reason, so I made sure I shared some of the lovely, cool water with her when I got out.

I was sure I was going to see a duck, because there were lots of smells of them everywhere. But even though I stared and stared at every little thing that moved in the water, I didn't see one all afternoon.

I sat very quietly in the shade keeping watch, just in case.


Mum was very sad today after reading Honey's blog. I had to get a lot of rubbles from her to make her feel better.

Goodbye Henry!

Henry crossed the Rainbow Bridge. He was 14 1/2.



Henry lived with my mum's friend in Devon, England. Such a fine, handsome chap.


He had quite the life, just as all dogs should.





His mum says, "He is up in the garden with lots of flowers all around him and a big white cherry tree is flowering beside him."

Good ol' Henry. I know his mum and dad are missing him very much.

Daddy's Girl



I miss my dad when he's at work, so when he comes home, I like to make sure he stays close.

I passed!


Mum & Dad took me to the pet doctors in Flagstaff this week. I was a bit worried because they told me I was going for my exam, but I didn't know what the questions were going to be about. I studied up on duck hunting and what you're supposed to do if you see a rattlesnake. I even made sure I knew how to spell Barack Obama, because Mum had one about the president in the exam she took when she got the certificate that says she's allowed to live here forever.

It turned out that I didn't need to remember anything, because they were just doing an exam of my body to make sure I'm fit and healthy. My usual doc, Doctor Liz, couldn't see me, so I saw Doctor Lisa instead. I got a bit scared when I saw her as the last time I saw her was when I swallowed the poisonous mushrooms. I had to stay at the hospital and I didn't see Mum and Dad for nearly 2 days. I thought it was because they were mad at me for eating the mushrooms, but they said it was because I was very sick and Doctor Lisa was making me well again.

Anyway, Doctor Lisa was very happy to see me and gave me lots of rubbles. She sat down on the floor with me and checked me all over. She laughs a lot and is very gentle when she touches me. She said I got A's on everything - well, apart from something she called Arf-rightis. It's something to do with my right shoulder, because it gets stiff after I've been doing a lot of digging. Mum & Dad say that means I have to go easy on the digging. It also means I get more massages from Mum, and we do some stretching every morning now, which I like a lot because I just get to lie on my back between Mum's legs while she rubbles me.

Doctor Lisa said my teeth were very good, so Mum reminded me that it's because of brushing my teeth at night. She got a new toothpaste for me and I don't like it as much as the one we used to have. She says it's paltry. Maybe that's why I don't like it because I thought it was supposed to taste like chicken.

Everyone made a huge fuss over me for getting such a good report card, and I got a special treat on the way home. We went to one of my favorite places in the forest and Mum found me the last patch of snow. It was only as big as the room where we eat, but I couldn't have been happier. Snow makes me run like a puppy, and there's nothing that feels as good as rolling on my back in the snow. Exams aren't that bad after all.
