What are you up to Mom?
Is it really?
It's YUMMY peanut butter inside a bone! My bones from Christmas make good leverage for getting that peanut butter out
Sasha was watching to make sure I wasn't going to come take her's back. Mom handed me the first one, but I decided to be polite and let Sasha have the first one. They were so totally yummy and delicious! I sucked the peanut butter out of one lat night and I'm working on the other one right now. Sasha got as much as she could reach with her small nose and mouth and I'm finishing it off. Mom said there were bacon ones, too but since there were only 2 peanut butter ones left and peanut butter is the flavor Maggie and Mitch had, she decided to go with the peanut butter ones. Good choice Mom!! I'm sending a HUGE Peanut Buttery Thank You to Maggie and Mitch for blogging about such a wonderful treat!! Mom says thanks, too. It was the quietest night she's had in weeks around here, except for maybe the sucking noises that she said grossed her out. If anybody else has a special treat they get be sure to post about it. It sound like Mom will be making the trip to the doctor's office in another town pretty often and Petsmart is on the way there. I'll psot my toy tomorrow. I have the picture all loaded on Blogger and ready to go. I have to go work on the other peanut butter bone now.

Here's what I did this weekend. Saturday Mom and us hung out and didn't do much. Dad took his truck to a friend's house to work on it and Mom started putting stuff in boxes to take to Grandma's to store it so we can start painting the inside of the house. Sunday was TONS of tun! We got up and Dad and I went out and changed the starter in the truck (it's really my truck, but I let Dad drive it a lot - it's a Jeep truck which makes it totally awesome). We did a few other things on it and then I helped Mom take a few of the boxes out to the truck and then Sasha and I had to go to the back yard because Mom said I really wasn't much help. What does she know? I was lots of help to Dad! Dad even said so!! Then we loaded up in the truck and I got in the back where my favorite place to ride is. The truck has a cover and there's a platform for me to lay or stand on with windows for me to stand in front of plus there's a window between my area and the front of the truck in case the back is too full for my to get in that way and so I can still hang out with Mom, Dad and Sasha. Sasha doesn't ride in the back with me very much because I get too excited and she gets stepped on so she rides in Mom's lap or on the back of the seat behind Mom's head. (There's so many different places to ride in the truck!!) So we went to Grandma's and played and ran in her huge yard and ate treats and got lots of attention and also got really tired. Mom and Dad took Sasha and I home so they could go do some grocery shopping and so we could take a nap from having so much fun at Grandma's. I helped Mom in the house with some stuff while Dad cut up firewood (it was supposed to get cold this week, but it feels like spring!). I culdn't help him because he doesn't like me to be outside with the chainsaw going. I did go help him stack wood and bring some inside though. Then we had dinner and I had an after dinner nap and then all of a sudden Dad handed me this totally awesome new toy!! That's what my picture is of so I'll wait to tel you about it when I have the picture (hint, hint Mom!!). Mom and Dad got it for me when they went to Mom's doctor appointment last week. Mom had a gift certificate to use at Sportman's Warehouse and she bought some stuff and had enough to buy my birthday presant. It's a month early, but no complaining here! Mom said I'll still get a special treat for my birthday, but they couldn't wait to give me my gift. I'm glad they didn't wait and I can't wait to show it to all of you! (another hint to Mom!)
Mom and Dad are going to the doctor again tomorrow so they can look inside my Mom's tummy. After her appointment last week she's not as nervous about this one. That also means I'm not as nervous so hopefully I won't have any tummy issues this week either (the house is still kind of funny smelling) even though I did like Aunt Gillian and Grandma coming to check on me all day. Be sure to check in Thursday and hopefully I'll have my picture to show you. If I don't we can all bark at my Mom really loud (that annoys her when I do that). I'll have to invite Peanut and anydog else that is good with the anal gland torture techniques. I'm sure she'll remember then!
Before I go I want to send out some good vibes and chaotic hugs to Tia to get better soon.

Yesterday didn't go as we had planned. It started the night before kind of. I has some MAJOR bad gas that made everybody mad. Well, the next morning Mom and Dad were still going to get up early even though they really didn't have to. Dad got up and let us out a little before 5 which was earlier than her had really planned on getting up but the bedroom really stunk and I was whining. After I was outside the smell didn't go away. I had an accident on the comforter on Mom and Dad's bed and 3 accidents in the living room. I felt really bad, but I really couldn't control it at all. Mom and Dad got up and started cleaning. Mom was feeling sick because she was nervous about her appointment then the smell was making her not feel good and then she was worried about me. Mom went and took a shower and Dad took the comforter down to the laundromat since the last time they used our washer it tore it up. It was so bad that it leaked off the comforter onto the bench at the end of the bed. Dad had to strip the covering off and they have to redo the top which means Sasha has to whine to get on the bed again. Mom said I'm not allowed to visit blogs when there's sick dogs. She said the Brat Pack and Sparky must have been contagious (even though it wasn't Sparky posting, it was Patches) when they posted about their poop issues. Don't worry, I'm feeling better so you don't have to worry about me being contagious. The house stunk REALLY bad. Mom got her smell good candles out (they always make us hungry for cookies, cakes, pie and other yummy desserts) to help and it has a little. It stunk so bad that Gunner refused to eat his breakfast and that's a big deal!! Gunner never refuses a meal! Mom didn't want to leave me in the house all day with my problems but it was too cold to stay outside (and she doesn't trust the people across the alley to leave us outside for very long) so she called Aunt Gillian a bazillion times until she finally answered her phone (Aunt Gillian doesn't get out of bed until after 10 am unless she HAS to). She talked Aunt Gillian into coming and checking on me a couple of times and Grandma came to check on me, too. I got tons of attention! Mom and Dad ended up leaving an hour later than they had planned, but they got to the appointment in plenty of time since they were planning on doing some other stuff before the appointment and would have gotten there early any way (The doctor is in another town that takes about an hour to get to and Mom and Dad hardly ever go there so when they do, they go to other places they don't get to go to very often). Last night I was really tired. I wanted to play, but not really. Instead I curled up on the couch with Mom and Dad and I was out. Mom woke me up to go outside so we could all go to bed. I had another accident in the living room last night, but not very big. I don't smell bad anymore, but his hunting clothes. It worked when Mom and Dad first bought our house and Sasha had some "issues" and kept pooping by the front door. You can't tell there was anything yucky by the front door anymore. I really hope Dad can get the smell out. We all keep sneezing because of the foam cleaner stuff and because of the bad smell and Mom's candles. All the smells mixed together are pretty weird. At lunch I felt so good Mom took me outside to play fetch for a little bit. It was warm today so the snow finally started to melt which means my back yard is really muddy so we didn't get to play very long.
Mom's appointment went ok. She has to go get an ultrasound done next week. Mom's not worried about it at all. She said she's had several ultrasounds done before. She had one before he got her gallbladder taken out and that is the only one that has ever been painful but that's because they kept pushing on her sick gallbladder. Mom is staying very optimistic about this one because this doctor said he doesn't think she'll need the surgery, but can't say for sure until after the ultrasound. Mom is in a MUCH better mood, too. The thought of another surgery was making her very grumpy and not much fun to be around. Everybody keep your paws crossed for her next week.
I also wanted to thank everydoggy for believing I'd never cuddle with the cat! Yesterday Dad put a blanket on the couch just in case I got up there and had another accident. Well, Dad used a fuzzy blanket which happens to be Gunner's most favorite place to take long naps. I was sick so I had a good excuse to curl up in the fuzzy blanket, plus it was put there for me. he kept getting up there and touching me again! Aunt Gillian and Grandma were both witnesses and both said we were cuddling. Still no pictures though, so I say still no proof!
I'm off to take another nap to help my tummy. Have a good weekend everybody!

Since Mom and Dad are going to the doctor tomorrow I'll he on high alert security duty so I won't be able to post tomorrow. Hopefully I'll have good news on Friday. I really hope Mom doesn't have to have another surgery (unless it's brain surgery!). Everybody keep your paws crossed!

Mom's headache is finally gone. I'm very happy because she's kinda grumpy when she has a headache, especially that long. Aunt Gillian didn't come for dinner last night because she wasn't feeling good. Mom told her to stay away. Last year Mom got that really nasty flue from Grandma and then she got that really bad sinus infection/cold thing and now any time someone says they don't feel good Mom says stay away!!
Aunt Gillian said all the puppies have furever homes, but 3 of them are still not gone yet. The last 3 will be leaving soon though. Aunt Gillian said Mommy Bailey is glad to see them gone. She hasn't acted like she's missed any of them and she really hasn't been paying much attention to them any way. Bailey is ready to get back to feeding and watering the horse, checking the barn, making sure Aunt Gillian's truck is ok and other Blue Heeler things. I'm hoping that this means that Bailey will come to play with me soon. I haven't seen her in sooooo long. When Aunt Gillian comes to see me, I always rub against her and make sure there's some of me for Bailey to smell so she won't forget about me. I've never met Bodee, but it sounds like he's finally starting to play (he was a rescue dog, too).
Mom should be home for lunch pretty soon so I better go get ready to look out the window for her. Mom loves seeing me look out the window for her when she pulls into the driveway. I can't bring myself to tell her I'm actually making sure none of those highschool kids are in my yard. I gets lots of ear scratches if she thinks I'm looking for her.

Have a great weekend everybody! I'll hopefully figure out this mystery stuff soon and hopefully have something cool to tell you about on Monday!

It's getting cold again. I think it's going to snow again. It was warm this morning and our other 4 inches started melting pretty good. There is a pile of snow over at the school that is from them plowing the sidewalk, driveways and parking lots that would make a WONDERFUL snow fort. Mom says no way though because it's all full of dirt. It's almost as tall as My Jeep! I'd love to go drive my Jeep over it, but Dad says no because the school would get mad for us tearing up their grass. That could be payback for those kids throwing their trash in our yard. Dad said it wouldn't.
I'm going to go sniff for clues some more.

Mom FINALLY got my picture with my helmet done. I think I'm the last one. Supreme Commander Stormy gave the orders a week ago and I'm just now completing them. I hope this doesn't affect my performance report! Mom said she'd been putting it off because she knew she'd have to spend a lot of time trying to resize the picture or helmet. She's so good that the picture she decided to use is a perfect fit! Silly woman! Look at my serious face in this picture. It looks like I'm in deep concentration and focussed on my mission. (Really Mom is holding my tennis ball and I'm waiting for her to throw it.)
I'm still working on figuring out next weekend. It sounds like Dad is waiting on an agenda from someone he works with. But I have no idea what that means. Mom is worried about the weather, too. That doesn't mean anything though. They had to go to a couple towns over last night for a doctor's appointment and ended up in the middle of a blizzard. It normally takes about 30-45 minutes to get home from there, but last night it took an hour and a half for them to get home. This morning there was 4 inches of snow on the ground. Dad called Mom earlier and he said there's some places he's been this morning that have 6 inches. Luckily there was a 2 hour delay on school so Mom didn't have to worry about school kids and buses and stuff like that (there's 3 school zones between our house and her work). The roads are really slick and yucky. This is the kind of weather Mom wishes she had a Jeep instead of a Kia. I told Mom to take my Jeep this morning, but she said she's be okay in her car. I think really she can't reach to clean off the windshield and Dad had already cleaned off her car for her. She got stuck twice trying to get out of the driveway because there's so much ice and snow. If it wasn't so cold outside I'd try to go build a snow fort like Zim's. Instead, I'll stay inside and make sure the blankets on the beds and the couch are nice and fluffy and warm. Plus, this way I can search for more clues about this weekend - even though I don't think there are any more clues!
Stay warm if you're included in this big snow storm that just blew through Colorado!

After my bath I did a lot of zoomies between the living room and dining room to dry off faster. I mostly curled up by the fireplace though. Sasha was so desperate to get dry and warm she curled up with Gunnar on my living room bed! Sasha and I also kept rolling on our blankets and toys trying to get out stink back, but it didn't work very well. Dad even brushed us to get any loose fur off! This is terrible!! We did get a bunch of Schmakos as a reward, but I still hate baths. This weekend better be one of the greatest weekends ever! I was kind of grumpy for the rest of the day after my bath, but it made Mom feel sorry for me so I got lots of belly rubs and ear scratches. Sasha took full advantage of the guilt, too. Mom wears fake fingernails because she bites her nails and makes them really sore. She redid them that morning so they were in perfect condition for some major belly and ear scratches. I love when she does that! BUT that doesn't make me feel better about the bath!
