It snowed!

Last night when we went to go outside for the last time it was snowing a little bit and then this morning when we went outside there was lots of snow! It was great! I love the snow! I love to run in it. I always loose my toys in in though. I never did find my stick or my outside rope. Dad said not to worry, they're still out there.
Yesterday, Dad was off from work and spent all day with me. We put up the rest of the Christmas decorations and got the fire going really warm for Mom and Aunt Cassie (they get cold a lot). Gunnar really liked the fire, too. He likes laying in front of the fireplace a lot. Mom took a picture of him the last time we had the fireplace going. Isn't he funny?
I can't wait for Christmas! I've been trying to listen to see what Mom and Dad are getting us. I really hope I get a new bone because last year's bone isn't as fun any more. I need a new bed, too though and of course we all need new toys and our very own bag of Shmakos would be great. I CAN'T WAIT!!

I Love My Rope!

Mom was working really hard this weekend to get the house cleaned up and I wanted attention because Dad is gone and she got my rope out!!!! She let me play with my rope all day yesterday and today!! She even played with me a little with it. It was a lot of fun! Since I was sleeping with Mom last night, I didn't get to sleep with it last night. Dad will be home tonight though so maybe I'll sleep with it tonight.
Mom said that Dad will beat her home from work. I can't wait to see Dad. I miss him a lot when he's gone. I think once he gets home, we're going to start planning the next pheasant hunting trip. I can't wait for that either!
Mom put up some more Christmas decorations this weekend, too. I like Christmas decorations because they make the house look pretty and cute. I really like them because they put Mom in a baking mood. She starting to plan her yearly massive cookie baking that she does every year. I love when she bakes cookies!!!! I'm in charge of cleaning the floor.
I'm going to go play with my rope some more before Dad gets home.

Pumpkin Pie is YUMMY!!

Yesterday was kind of boring. Dad came and checked on us a couple times, but he didn't bring us anything because he said the food wasn't finished yet. So we were pretty bored. They came home and they had lots of yummy smelling leftovers and then they went to feed a friend's cat and I couldn't help it! I helped myself to some pumpkin pie. This cat doesn't live very far from us so they came home pretty quick and I felt bad and had my guilty look. If I hadn't, they probably would have never known because it took Mom a long time to find it. I went straight to the kennel and stayed for a while. I didn't whine at all because I knew I was bad. Then dad decided to put up Christmas decorations since he's going hunting this weekend and won't be around to help and he decided we all needed to be together while the decorating was going on so he let me out and I joined the sniffing of the boxes and the stuff coming out. They got the tree up and some of the decorations. Then we shut the lights off and all cuddled up and watched the lights blink and listened to music. The lights started to bother me after awhile and so Sasha and I went to bed. mom and Dad werwe really tired so they came to bed soon after that and Gunnar was tired from all the box sniffing he didn't even make a bunch of noises before he decided to come to bed. When the alarm clock went off this morning, nobody moved for a long time until my bladder started hurting.
Mom has been working on her website a little today and she said she needs to stop waiting so long to do that because the website she uses to work on her website has changed and she had to refigure things out. Since she worked so hard on it, be sure to check it out: Hilary's Designs.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Mom said that even though we can't go to Grandma's for Thanksgiving tomorrow, she'll come check on us and bring us something. She's not sure when she'll come thoughbecause it depends on what everybody is doing and if she can get a car out of the driveway.
This morning Mom decided Sasha isn't as smart as she thought she was. Instead of using the bench like we all thought she would use all the time, she barked for Mom to pick her up. She got cold and wanted up and then when the alarm went off signaling we can get up on the bed for a morning snuggle, she did it again. I sort of thought it was funny, but pretended not to care.
Monday night Mom made some pecan pies (I cleaned up the floor for her like everytime she bakes) and then last night she baked rolls, tonight she said she has to make 2 more pecan pies! I guess the first 2 were for Aunt Gillian and Aunt Cassie. Last night the bread smell was making me really hungry. When she took them out of the oven though Mom and Dad gave us a little piece and WOW!!! They were yummy!!! Instead of bringing us something tomorrow, she should just leave those here!!! Dad really liked them, too which meant we didn't get very big pieces from him.

He's Going!

Dad decided to go ahead and go hunting this weekend. He's not going to be gone for very long, but I still don't like it. There's been a lot going on in our neighborhood the past couple weeks at night and I really don't want to be the only one to take care of the noises at night. He's going to leave Saturday night and come home Monday so that won't be too bad, but we're still going to miss him a lot. I'm going to talk Mom into going to get us hamburgers maybe Sunday for lunch. Aunt Cassie left a little bit ago to go spend Thanksgiving with her family and so Mom, Sasha and I should do something fun.
Sasha has figured out the new becnch at the bottom of the bed is for her. She got cold last night and instead of waking Mom up to put her up on the bed, she went straight to the bench and jumped up on the bed. She still uses my bed to get off the bed though. Mom says she's such a smart puppy for learning to do that so fast. If she is so smart, then why is she locked up in the kennel right now? Cuz she doesn't come when she's called and it makes Mom really mad. Right before we went outside Mom got out a bunch of chewies and since Sasha didn't hide any before we went outside and now she's locked up and Gunnar doesn't like chewies THEY'RE ALL MY CHEWIES!!!!
I'm going to go tease Sasha a little with the chewies before Dad comes home for lunch and lets her out.

Plans Are Forming!

I heard Mom and Dad talking last night and they're starting to plan the next pheasant hunting trip and this time there might be a few more people come along. I can't wait!! I love going hunting!
Don't tell Mom and Dad, but they've forgotten about the boots thing. I'm supposed to wear them a couple times a week to get used to them and I haven't. Mom has to get some baking done for Thanksgiving so hopefully they'll totally forget about it! shhhhhhh
I don't think we're going to get to go to Grandma's for Thanksgiving with Mom and Dad because there's going to be a bunch of people there and Mom doesn't want us to accidently knock the turkey fryer over or get in the way in the kitchen (we really like to help in the kitchen). Mom said she'd take pictures of Dad frying the turkey though. They got the fryer as a wedding gift a year and a half ago and haven't used it yet and since they're going to need 2 turkeys, they decided they better go buy oil for it. I probably won't post on Thanksgiving even though I'll be home because there's a good chance Dad might come get us and I want to be ready.
I'll post again tomorrow!

The Boots

Remember how I was really excited about my boots coming? Well, that's over. They're here and I don't like them. They're my favorite color and they're for me and nobody else and I hate them. Dad says they'll help with my cactus and sticker problem, but I would rather deal with the stickers and cactus. Dad says I have to get used to them by wearing them around a couple nights a week. So far I haven't worn them again, but I have a feeling it's coming soon. The good part is, they're talking about getting a pair for Sasha because she always ends up making Mom come get her if there's a lot of snow in the yard. She says he feet get too cold. Dad says my boots will be cooler than Sasha's, but I'm thinking any kind of boot isn't fun. Of course Mom took pictures of the first time I had my boots on. Luckily she couldn't figure out how to make the video thing work. Notice how unhappy I look.

I'm Back!

Sorry I haven't posted in a couple days. It took me 2 days to recover from this weekend. I had a BLAST!! Dad said we're going again next month and I can't wait!! We didn't get anything this time because it was too windy. I have some funny stories and Mom took a bunch of pictures of us.
The frist day we really couldn't hunt because the season didn't open until Saturday, but we did some scouting and I got to chase rabbits. Saturday we went out a little later in the morning because Dad wasn't feeling very good. That was okay because I got to play with Cinnamon a little (she's a rescued dog too and has a type of hound in her I have no idea how to spell). Dad and I went out for a little while and I was working on flushing some birds. I was doing pretty good, but the birds kept flying towards the house so Dad couldn't shoot at them or they were the hen and Dad said he's not supposed to shoot at them. I tried to convince him that nobody would ever know, but he said no. I just really wanted him to shoot the gun. After awhile I was doing some more flushing and all of a sudden there was an animal I didn't know what it was! I don't think it knew what I was either. We were both very surprised. I flushed it just in case Dad wanted to shoot at it. He said it was a deer. He'd already gone deer hunting this year. That's were he went when I had to protect the house. Now I know what he's doing when he goes on those trips. Anyway, I chased it a little bit, but Dad called me back and we went back to work. A little bit later I chased something else I didn't know what it was. I have to remember never to do that again. Dad said it was called a "tumble weed." Not exactly sure what they're for or what they do, but chasing them is a little fun, but catching them is bad. The taste really bad and they have pointy things that hurt my mouth.
We went back to the house and had lunch and then went out for a little bit longer. This time I flushed a good pheasant Dad could shoot at and he didn't!! Cuz he had to duck! I laughed because it was really funny watching the pheasant almost hit Dad in the head. We went back to the house when it started getting cold and everybody went out to eat that night. Dad said there were some other pheasant hunters at the restaurant and they were all having a hard time too because of how windy it was. Dad was sure they didn't have a good hunting dog like me to help them out. I slept really good that night and didn't even wake Dad up until almost 8 am! We had breakfast and then went out for awhile and I flushed another hen and then went back to the house so Dad could pick some of the stickers and cactus out of my feet. He kept saying that next time that won't be a problem because I'll have my boots (ummm, we'll see about that - that's tomorrow's post). Then we went back out and Mom came with us this time!!! She wanted to take pictures of me hunting. Too bad there weren't any birds when she came with us, but I showed her what I'd been doing and she was amazed at how good I was. I would start to go one way and then Dad would whistle and point in a directin and I'd go that way. Mom said I was a very smart dog. She even took a cool picture of Dad and I. We took Mom back to the house a little later and started getting stuff ready to go home. The entire ride home I slept good. Mom had to wake me up when we stopped in Limon so I could stretch my legs. I was very happy to be home and had to check out my back yard a few times and then once everybody had settled in I curled up in my chair and slept and then went to bed and slept.
Gunnar was happy we were home so I did have to play with him a little when we got home, but I was too tired to play very much. He was crazy when we got home. His tail fluffed up and he was running around making weird noises for a long time. Dad told him it was time for bed, but he was too hyper so we all went to bed and tehn Gunnar got bored being by himdlef so he came to bed too.
I can't wait until next month!!

Dad getting the stickers out of my feet. I'll tell you the boot story tomorrow.

Dad went to drop Mom off at work then he has to go to work real quick this morning and then he's coming home to load the car and then we wait for Mom and Aunt Cassie to get home and then we leave and WOOOHOOOOOO!!!!!! I am way too excited to do anything but be hyper. Mom put our bag in the pile of stuff to load in the car and now I'm really really really really hyper and I think I'm going to pass out because my brain is feeling kind of funny but I'm okay really ....I think. Since Aunt Cassie is coming with us that means Mom is riding in the back seat with Sasha and I which means we'll have someone to sit with in the back seat and I CAN'T WAIT!!!
I'm going to go get some water now.
Have a great weekend. I AM!!

I can't wait!!!! My boots aren't going to get here until Friday though so I won't be able to use them, but that's okay. That will give me time to get used to them before the next trip. Before Mom left this morning she told Sasha and I that ef there's anything else we want packe to be sure to let her know so that she can pack it tonight so it will be ready for Dad to load tomorrow and I jumped up in my chair and starte sniffing the leashes. Mom laughed and said "Don't worry Kaos, the leashes will get packed. They'll be one of the last things so we can find them easy when we stop for a potty break." OH YEAH!!! I knew that, but I forgot! I get soooooooo excited I forget things sometimes! I CAN'T WAIT!!! It's going to be so much fun!!!!! WOOOOHOOOOO!!!!! Even if I do have time to post tomorrow I might be too excited so I will post Monday. Probably afternoon though because I plan on spending most of the morning resting because I plan on having TONS of fun this weekend!!!! I CAN'T WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Gunnar's Scratching Post

Mom and Dad think it's cute when Gunnar hugs his scratching post. Personally, I don't get it. It's this thing covered in carpet by his food dish. I don't think they realize he uses it to sharpen his claws! If they got rid of the post then Mom wouldn't have to clip his nails! Mom says she's never had a cat who's nails got so long. If she hasn't cut them for awhile then they get so long that he has trouble walking and he clicks on the hardwood floors. It's funny, he'll be walking and all of a sudden get stuf to the carpet. They still let him scratch on the post though. Mom says its so he wont' scratch the furniture. Not exactly sure how that works though. He likes to lay on it and wrap his arms around it like he's hugging it. Mom says he's really cute from the other angle, but she can never get a picture of him from the other side because he doesn't like his picture taken. He doesn't know that if Mom's taking your picture, you're being good and you better stay being cute for her so later when you're being bad she can look at those pictures and remember when you were cute and won't get as mad.

There's only a few days left before we leave!! I can't wait!!!!! It doesn't look like my boots are going to be here in time which is a bummer, but I'll just have to be really careful. Dad and I have a lot to do on Thursday before Mom and Aunt Cassie get off work. Grandma is going to come feed Gunnar and Mom's fish so if my boots come after we leave, Grandma will take care of them. Hopefully they'll come on Thursday though and I can spend the day getting used to them and I'll have them for hunting. I CAN'T WAIT!! Mom asked me if there's anything else I want to pack and as long as I have my hunting rope, chewies and treats I'll be okay. She packed some toys too to keep Sasha entertained and in case I get bored at night (I plan on sleeping though). I CAN'T WAIT!!!!
I'm going to go pick on Gunnar now. He's really going to miss me!

I'm Not A Lap Dog

Saturday I was home with Mom all day and we were pretty lazy, but Sasha and I spent a lot of time outside. Well, Mom and Dad were sitting on the couch and I wanted to get up with themm. I ended up laying across Mom's lap. I guess I was more tired than I thought I was because I was totally out. Mom said she kept tring to wake me up so she could move her leg. I guess I was laying there for almost 2 hours!! I didn't wake up until Dad decided it was time to go outside and then I Mom and Dad finally woke me up. I went outside and then curled up beside Mom on the couch and when it was time to go to bed I went straight to my bed instead of curling up with Mom for awhile. Mom said I don't make a very good lap dog, but obviously she makes a very good lap bed because I was very comfy. Her and Dad were both rubbing my ears and petting me which made it really easy to go to sleep like that.
Dad ordered my boots but it doesn't look like they're going to get here in time. I'll just have to try to becarful. Pheasant season doesn't start until Saturday so on Friday we're going to go look top see if we can find where they're hiding and we can hutn for rabbits that day. I can't wait!!! Mom packed our stuff and has started getting her stuff ready. She charged all the batteries in the camera and is ready to take some cool pictures of us. Dad has the guns ready and all the camo and orange stuff ready. OH Dad ordered me orange boots. He thought about the camo ones and if one comes off while we're hunting an orange one would be easier to find than a camo. That's okay, Blaze Orange is my favorite anyway.
Dad is off Thursday and we leave Thursday night. I don't think I'll post Thursday because I have to help Dad get everything ready. I have to make sure he doesn't forget anything. Sasha won't help because she had to have a bath yesterday for the trip and now she's mad. I wanted Mom to take a picture of Sasha after bath so I could show you how funny she looked but Sasha went and hid under the bed until she was dry so we couldn't get the picture of her. maybe next time. Anyway, she's mad so she isn't helping with anything she says. As long as the treats and her bed are packed, she says she doesn't care what else goes.
I'm going to go pick on Gunnar now. He's going to go almost all weekend without me picking on him so I have to make sure I pick on him now to make up for it. I'll post again tomorrow. I have some funny pictures of Gunnar I want to show you.

Cold Sheets & Forgetting to Say Bye

Okay, Mom complains if I lay on the sheets in the bed because I get dirt in the bed so I try to stay on the blankets. Last night she got into bed and I was laying on the bed waiting for her and you know what she asked? "Kaos, why haven't you warmed up the sheets?" I have her the "you're kidding right?" look. She laughed and said "Oh yeah, cuz of the dirt." Silly Mom!
This morning I got confused. We did our normal morning routine except that when we came back in side, Mom wasn't where she was normally. I looked all over the house for her and looked outside. I thought there's noway she would leave without telling me bye! Dad couldnm't figure out what my problem was and gave us chewies and opened the door for me to see out. I couldn't see Mom's car because it was on the otherside of Aunt Cassie's and so I just knew Mom left without saying bye to me!! Dad made me go down the hall with him and he opened the bathroom door and there was Mom in the shower! I KNEW she wouldn't leave without saying bye to me!! Everything was okay so I got my chewie and layed in the living room just in case anybody else thought about leaving without saying bye to me.

Halloween Guard Dog

Okay, there weren't as many people last night as ther were last year and there weren't very many cute little kids. It was mostly middle school and high school kids. Mom said she was sad she didn't get to see little kids last night. The boys and Cara did come over though and at first I didn't recognize them and then all of a sudden I realized who it was and felt bad so I gave them all kisses. I didn't recognize them in their outfits. One was a ninja and he had a mask over his face so I really didn't like that, the one that was supposed to be an indian was actually a dracula type thing and then the girl was a witch with spider stuff printed on her dress. They were pretty cute. I was glad when the bell stopped ringing. I slept really good last night because I was so tired. Tonight Grandma's coming over for dinner. I've had a bunch of visitors this week! I'm going to go rest up now.
