Lots Of Snow

Ther's lots and lots and lots of snow outside. Dad went out to the front yard for awhile so I thought I'd tell you about the snow. It's a wet snow Dad says. He's outside trying to make the bushes stand up again. They're usually very tall bushes and now they're really short and laying across the walkway to Mom's car. Dad took Mom to work today because she got stuck in her parking lot trying to leave work last night. Poor Mom needs a Jeep then she wouldn't have those kinds of problems! She likes her little Kia though, until she's stuck in the snow.
Yesterday when Mom was home for lunch and then after work Mom teased me. When we went outside those 2 times it was snowing outside and the snowflakes were really huge. They were sticking to me pretty good. Both times when Mom let me in she said "You're a white dog! Where's my black dog! I don't have a bit white dog, I have a big black dog!" By then the snow would be melted or I would have wagged my tail so hard it came off and then she would say, "OH it is my big black dog. She's just covered in snow!" Crazy Mom!!!
I love to run in the snow all over my yard. It's fun to run in the new snow that nobody else has run in yet. I'm the only one in my yard running in the new snow (Sasha follows my path because she's so short) so I get to have lots of fun. Mom and Dad say I'm hilarious to watch run around in the snow.
It sounds like Dad is almost done so I'm going to go watch for him so I can go outside with him. Have a good weekend everybody! I won't post again until Tuesday since Mom will be off work for 3 days. I think she's going to hog the computer or make the room stinky with her paints. She really wants to use her new easel that Dad got her for Christmas.
Happy New Year!

Sick Mom

Mom stayed home from work yesterday because she was really sick. She was up at 1:30 am yesterday morning and her fever didn't break until 8:00 last night. She spent most of the day in bed and Gunnar, Sasha and I spent most of the day with her. She finally moved to the couch because the bed was hurting her back and I tried to share my rope with her to make her feel better but she kept yelling at me to leave her alone. I was really getting bored and was very happy to see Dad when he came home. Mom spent most of the day in the bathroom or sleeping. Sasha wanted attention from Mom and didn't care if she was sick or not. Gunnar was nice though and didn't bug Mom about lunch until she moved from the bed to the couch.
It's snowing today! Dad said the people on the news said this snow storm is supposed to be big like last week's. We didn't get anything last week so I didn't think we'd get anything this time either. It's snowing though so hopefully I'll be able to play in the snow this weekend. I love running in the snow and hunting for my rope and my plastic stick. Mom and Dad laugh at me so I must look funny. Mom says I'm pretty good at making sure every piece of snow in the backyard is well packed into the ground. I don't know about that, I just have a lot of fun running all over the yard. I'm going to go watch the snow now and take a little nap just in case there's enough snow to run around in when Mom comes home for lunch. I think Dad is off work tomorrow so I'll spend tomorrow helping him. Have a good weekend. Mom and Dad say this is New Year's weekend so everybody be safe and if your parents are having a party have fun and be safe!!

I had a WONDERFUL Christmas!!! I hope all of you did, too.

First, here's a picture of me and my friend Korra. Mom didn't take many pictures of us because Korra was afraid of the camera. I tried to explain to her that the camera is okay and if it was pointed at you that probably meant you were doing something cute or funny. She didn't care though. I guess it was the flash she didn't like. We still had a lot of fun together though. We played and played and played. Dad brought her home Friday night and we played awhile and then we drove Mom crazy Saturday while Dad was at work. Friday night we had eaten all the chewies so Mom went to buy us some more because chewies made us quiet. I like chewies a lot, but Korra is crazy about them! She coudl eat an entire one in about 2 minutes. I felt bad for her not having a chewie after she finished hers and Sasha and I still had one so I gave her my chewie and then I'd go steal Sasha's. Sunday Mom and Dad did some cleaning around the house and so we played and took naps. That night Mom and Dad made some very good smelling food (that's when Mom took the picture of us) and we really wanted to be in the kitchen in case they dropped stuff but we were in the way so we blocked the path from the kitchen to the dining room. They ate and shared a little with us and then they opened gifts. I got Mom a new pair of pants she really wanted and I got Dad a cough muffler thing for hunting. Gunnar got Mom a fuzzy blanket that she loves and he got Dad some candy bars. Sasha got Mom some new underwear (she has a thing about eating Mom's underwear) and then she said she got Dad some CD's, but the snow that hit all of Colorado but us kept the mail from delivering on time so hopefully Dad will be getting the CD's today. Then Mom got Dad a gift certificate to one of the hunting magazine places he buys stuff from. The mail also didn't get the gift certificate here on time so Mom wrapped her e-mail confirmation. Silly Mom! Mom got Dad an easel to work on her art work. It's really pretty and they spent a long time putting it together. Mom's very excited about it. Hopefully Dad's other stuff gets here soon.

Monday, Grandma came over. She wasn't feeling very good though. She brought gifts for Sasha, me and Gunnar. As soon as she put them under the tree I knew exactly which one was myne. I could smell the rope and kept nosing it. FINALLY they let us open them and I GOT A NEW ROPE!!!! Sasha got a squeeky toy that I played with a little too and then she wripped it apart and Gunnar got a ball with a jingle ball inside that I played with too. Gunnar was too nervous having Korra there and extra people. I loved all the toys Grandma brought, but my rope is my favorite!

Korra's Mom and Dad came to get her later and then Mom finally got our gift out. It was under the kitchen sink!!! Tricky Mom and Dad!! Here are the pictures of us and our gifts. Sasha and I love our bones. We share them because there are parts that we can get to better because of our sizes. We loved the bones so much we didn't even get in bed with Mom this morning for our morning cuddle, we went straight to the bones. Poor Mom.

Gunnar got a ball thing with a feather thing on top and it spins around for him to batt at the feathers. He likes it a lot too but Mom REALLY needs to trim his claws because while Dad was winding the ball, Gunnar was trying to get the feathers. Mom said she's going to put a bell on it to make it even funner for Gunnar because Gunnar loves bells. I tried playng with it too, but it was weird and I decided my bone was much better.
I'm going to go check out some of the other animal blogs I like to read to see how their Christmases were. I'll start telling you about more of them later. After some blog reading it's back to the bone!

I'm Bored

Hi again. I decided to check in again because I'm bored and we all know how much trouble I get into when I'm bored.
First, Mom brought home the Christmas present I wanted to get for Dad. Now my gift to Dad is the only one under the tree for him. Mom says Sasha's isn't going to come in time for Christmas because of the snow. They keep talking about this HUGE snow storm here in Colorado, but there's no snow at all! I guess everywhere around us got snow and it closed highways and stuff. Aunt Cassie isn't sure she can go home for Christmas, but that's okay, she can come join us. So Sasha is upset her gift for Dad isn't going to arrive in time. Gunnar's is here, but Mom has to help him wrap it and Mom has to wrap hers for Dad too. Gunnar is getting very excited about opening gifts because there's so many boxes under the tree. He said the boxes and wrapping paper are going to be a lot of fun to play in. I'm just worried we're going to loose Sasha in all that wrapping paper!
I also found some other dog blogs that I want to share with you. If you are a dog with a blog e-mail Mom and she'll let me know ( I decided to tell you about some of the ones I really like. The first one is Ranger. He's a chocolate lab and he's very funny. He also plays the same game with his Dad that I like to play with my Dad. Where Dad some how turns me upside down. Check our Ranger's website for pictures of this. Mom has never taken our picture because she's usually laughing too hard. I make funny growling noises while we're playing this game that makes Mom laugh even harder. Ranger also has to stay out of the kitchen like I do and his Mom tells him out jsut like my mom does. I think Ranger's Mom takes more pictures than my Mom does though and I didn't think that was possible!!! So anyway, check our Ranger's blog. I'll add him to my list of links.
Merry Christmas!!

Christmas Is Almost Here!

Dad is going to go pick up Korra after work tonight and then Korra and I are going to play and have fun until Monday when her Dad comes to get her and then I get my bone! I'm still trying to find it, but Mom and Dad are very tricky. Dad was off yesterday and I tried to get him to tell me where it was, but he wouldn't so I followed him around all day trying to see if he might accidently sow it to me. It didn't happen though. Once in awhile I go up to the stocking around the fireplace and sniff to see if I they're n the stockings yet. So far they aren't there yet. Mom sais we'll get them as soon as Korra leves Monday night.
I'm going to go make sure everything is ready for Korra. I have to maek sure the guest food dish is in the right spot and the spot where her bed is going to be is already for her bed and I have to make sure there's enough chewies for all of us and anything else I can think of.
Have a Merry Christmas everybody!

Christmas Cookies

Mom made Christmas cookies last night so sasha and I helped! Mom is very messy, especially with those colored sugar sprinkle things so Sasha and I kept the floor clean so Mom didn't slip on the sugar and fall. Mom was upset with the cookies because they were all crunchy instead of soft like usually. I think they taste fine though.
We also found out that my friend Korra might be coming to stay with us for the weekend for Christmas. Mom said that means we can't have our Christmas presant until after she leaves though so there's no fighting over it. That's okay, Korra's family will come get her the night of Christmas so we can have them then. I still haven't figured out where they hid them. Mom lighting her candles that smell like cookies and then making cookies last night didn't help at all. All the smells got mixed up and I couldn't focus on the smell of the bones. I'll find them though. I should go sniff for them now since nobody is home.

I Know What I'm Getting For Christmas!

I KNOW WHAT SASHA AND I ARE GETTING FOR CHRISTMAS!!!!! NEW BONES!!!! I'm so excited. We only have 1 bone left from last year and it's okay, but there's no flavor to it anymore and there's no more of that stuff in the middle of it. Mom went to the store last night and when she came in the house I knew! I knew before shewas in the door! I could smell them! Mom said I was a freak because it was in the plastic grocery bag and then they were wrapped in plastic. I could smell them though and I kept licking my lips. They were on the table for a long time, but then Dad took us outside and we came back in and they were moved. I'll find them though. They think they're sneaky, but I'll find them. It seems like forever until Christmas!!! Mom said we can have them Christmas Eve, which is the day before, but it still seems like a long time away! I'm going to be extra special good now that I know what I'm getting!

Chrsistmas Is Coming!!!

While Mom and Dad were gone Saturday, we go Mom's Christmas presants. I can't wait until Christmas. It's a week from today. Mom said we'll get our presants Sunday night though! Then Saturday Aunt Gillian and Grandma are coming over to eat. That means lots of people to give us attention. Mom ordered our presants for Dad and said they probably won't get here until Friday. I hope they make it on time or even early! That would be better!
I can't wait for Christmas!!! I better go make sure Gunnar is leaving the presants alone!

Busy Weekend Coming

They're getting ready to leave after work tonight. Mom is still worried, but I tild her not to worry because I'll take care of everything while they're gone. She worries too much. She'd probably be better if she slept better at night.
I'm not going to post whie they're gone because I have to make sure I hear all the noises and am on allert at all times. They're hoping to get back early in the afternoon so Mom can come check on me and not worry anymore and finish Christmas shopping.
Have a great weekend everybody!

Mom's Worried

Mom and Dad leave tomorrow to help Aunt Cassie move and Mom is very worried about us. We'll be okay and they're coming home Saturday afternoon. Mom worries way too much. Grandma will take good care of us. I am a little bummed that we don't get to go since they're going to Wray, but they're going to be busy and everything is going to be a little crazy so it's probably better that we aren't there in the way and stuff. Poor Mom.
Gunnar keeps jumping up on the dining room table and getting in trouble. He says he knows the presants are up there and is trying to find out what they got him. I keep trying to tell him that they haven't gotten our gifts yet and even if they have, they aren't going to leave them on the table. The ones that are on the table are for the nieces and nephew that don't live close. He doesn't believe me though. When Mom and Dad see he's been on the table, they make him spend time in the kennel. You'd think that he'd figure out that if he was good, he wouldn't be put in the kennel. This just proves my point that Gunnar isn't very smart, no matter what Mom and Dad say. I better go make sure he's not up on the table right now. Bye!

This Week's Almost Over!

I'm very sorry I haven't posted yet this week! I can't believe it's already Wednesday and I haven't posted. I really don't have a good excuse either. Monday I was really tired because I spent 4 days home with Dad. I really like when he has that many days off like that. Aunt Gillina is also moving back to town. I'm excited to get to play with Bailey again and to meet my cousins Bruitis and Dakota. Mom said we have to wait until they're into their other house first. It sounds like there's a lot of space to play at their new house. Aunt Cassie is also getting ready to move into her new place, too. Mom and Dad are going to help her go get her stuff this weekend. I'm not sure who's going to take care of us this weekend though. Hopefully someone really fun.
I'm gettng a little worried about Christmas, too. Today's the 13th and there aren't very many presants under the tree. There's a couple and they don't have any of our names on them. I know they usually put our presants in our stockings so we can't get to them, but they don't look like they have anything in them either. I know there's a few things on the table that need to be wrapped, but I think those have to be shipped to the nieces and nephew in Wyoming and California so those won't even go under the tree! Hopefull something goes under the tree soon!

Tired Puppy

Mom and Sasha didn't feel good last night so I was awake most of the night with them. Mom got up at 6 this morning to take a shower to try to make her feel better. I got up in the bed and made sure her spot stayed warm because I knew she'd come back to bed since it was so early. She did but I was asleep when she came back in and so she had to push me out of the way. A little later Dad got up and let us out. Sasha said that she just had a tummy ache because she was worried about Mom. Dad came home for lunch the same time Mom did and Mom still wasn't feeling very good. I hope she feels better soon. Mom being sick takes a lot out of us dogs because we worry about her. I'm off to take another nap before everybody comes home.

Not Much Going On

There's not much going on today. The snow is starting to melt which means the backyard is really muddy which means I have to wipe my feet off before I come inside. I home Mom and Dad can gt grass to grow in the backyard this year because the mud really annoys me. They tried last year, but the backyard just didn't want to cooperate. Neither did the front yard though. I like going to visit people with grass yards. I roll and roll and play and sleep. Mom takes us to the park down the street once in awhile to play in the grass, too. I get distracted by the tennis balls though. Mom says the people playing with the tennis balls in the big fenced area aren't going to share their tennis balls and they're practicing. They have tons of them though. I'm sure they wouldn't miss one.
Mom hung a thing in the window at lunch that I'm not sure I like. It's a snowman that waves all the time. It's solar powered and I will admit it is cute, but it's in the window I use for guard duty and it looks like a shadow. I may have to convince Mom to move it to a different window.
I'm going to go take a nap now before Dad comes home for lunch.

Busy Weekend

I had a very busy weekend. Friday Dad was off so I helped him with a few things around the house like splitting firewood and cleaning his guns from hunting. Saturday Mom and Aunt Cassie wre running some errands. Mom said Aunt Cassie found a place to rent which means she'll me moving out soon. Sasha is very upset. Then they went to a birthday party later in the afternoon and Sasha and I got the house ready for kids. We watched the kids all night because their parents had a Christmas party to go to. After the party, Mom and Aunt Cassie brought the kids with them. It was a lot of fun. They played games and ate dinner. I like when the kids come for dinner because they don't eat everything so that means Sasha and I eat their leftovers. Mom started a fire before Dad got off work which I thought was kind of weird. Mom hates keeping the fire going because she says the fire doesn't like her. She get get it going, she just can't keep it going. Poor Mom. Anyway, later the made smores in the fireplace. I love when the kids make smores when we're camping and they were in our living room! There's usually no leftovers from smores because the kids eat all of them, but they have sticky hands afterwards and I love sticky hands. Mom told them not to let them me have any chocolate, but the little girl had a tiny bit on her hand that we didn't tell Mom about. We stayed up late watching the new Superman movie. I guess you have to know who Superman is to understand what was going on. I fell asleep because I had no idea what was going on. Sunday morning Dad made breakfast and then went to work. We played games for awhile and then the dads came and got the kids. It was a lot of fun having the kids there this weekend, but now I'm really tired. It's a lot of work taking care of 3 kids. Saturday is snowed and was really cold so Sunday I played in the snow so that added to me being tired. Mom thought I was hilarous when I was throwing the snow up in the air with my nose and trying to catch it. I like making her laught because I usually get a treat.
Last night Dad was helping Mom hang some Christmas decorations above the big living room window. They had the couch moved into the middle of the living room and had stuff all over the couch, but I didn't care. I was so tired I fell asleep on the couch and didn't pay any attention to what they were doing. Stuff was even falling on me and I didn't even notice. They put the room back together and I layed in my chair until it was time to go outside and then went to bed. Mom and I fell asleep right away. When Dad got out of the shower and came into the bedroom, it strartled us both, but we had no prpblem going back to sleep. Sasha even slept the entire night in her bed which means she was really tired too.
Telling out about everything that happened is making me tired again so I'm going to go take a nap now before Mom and Dad come home for lunch.
