Klutzy R-man and Babies!!!

Last night was exciting! So many new things and old things and noisy things! I was going on a car ride with mom. The breeze was blowing thru my whiskers. Inhaling the fresh spring air, my nostrils quivered. mmmmmmmmmm

I love the spring, the sky, the squirrels (damn squirrels) and especially I love a great car ride!!!! Mom is driving along and she looks so happy. Is she up to something??!!

She pulls up to a car that looks like R-man's! R-man! Out of the car and up the ramp, I am running into an old house and.... There is R-man! He looks very happy and has a guitar in his hands. He plays the guitar like a dream and I sit and listen for a sec! All of a sudden there are these great LOUD booming sounds coming from somewhere in the room!!!!!!!!

I was out of there so fast! I peeked around the corner and mom was laughing and rolling on the floor..... She tried to sooth me and told me that it was just a little bit of drums. I BELIEVE I dislike the drums.

She gathered me up and took me to the car. Pshew! I finally realized we were at Band Practice and
I. Don't. Like. Band. Practice.
Here is a picture of R-man rockin' out!!!

I waited for mom to come back to the car and we went over to Woody's house. He had been on vacation for over a week and I haven't seen him for SO long. He was so excited to see me and kiss me and smell me. By the end of the night my ears were soaked from his constant slobbering! Yuck!

Woody's mom had her grand baby over and both our mom's played with the screaming bugger for a REALLY long time. They call Woody Goofy?? More like, they need to look in the mirror and listen to how THEY talk.... Super Goofy!

Ain't Woody Handsome!!

Here's a picture of the baby with his 12 year old Uncle Bubba!!

Can you tell I took that picture off mom's phone??? She left it home today and I have been having a BLAST!!

I smelled that baby and had to run away!!! He had a pair of undies on that had green fumes coming out the top!!?? Woody's mom laughed and told me that I should be used to that since I have smelt so many butts. HUH?

Later that night, mom finally took me home. R-man came over and took me for a walk around the block. The air was crisp and clean. He walks so fast and his slender legs FASCINATE me.... I love my R-man! As we neared the end of our walk, R-man tripped over a branch on the sidewalk. HE FELL! That's like a large, old oak dropping flat on the ground! He was hurt.

When we got home Mom got out the band aids and neosporin and covered up the bloody spot on his elbow. She rubbed his shoulders and I nuzzled his other arm. I think he really appreciated how much care we took to make sure he felt better. I LOVE MY R-MAN! and I really hate to think he hurt himself for me.

Tonight I think I will make sure to kiss him again and maybe I'll get to lick his sore arm! mmmm I love it when I get close enough to do that!

Be careful out there DoGs! You don't want to get hurt.

Fat Squirrels

Watching the beautiful Spring day unfold... Suddenly, two very fat squirrels ran out in front of me and up the tree! It is covered in Ivy and they were making such a racket! Running in circles and chittering at me! I hate those damn squirrels! They SUCK!

I really wish I could catch one of them and play with it till it collapses.... Mom doesn't really appreciate that very much, especially when they pass out in the house. I have seen her get the shovel and scoop them up to take a tired ole squirrel out back! I don't know what she does with them but I never see them again after that!!!

Yeah! The squirrels are back out! It is a great day!

Runnin' on Empty!

WOW! Mom must have read my blog yesterday! Today she comes home from lunch and took me on the longest bike ride/run that I have been on in a long time. SOOOOO many new spots to sniff, places to pee and yards to soil! I had a blast.

Mom and R-man were making fun of my little poochy tummy last night.... I TOLD them it was just FUR!!! They thought that was so funny!!?? Mom was practically rolling around on the floor laughing and she was crying too? Sometimes she just don't get it. My little tummy needs to get bigger in the winter so that I will keep warm when I am outside. My fur gets really thick too. I SWEAR!

Just wait till June when I start shedding all this winter fur. THEN she will feel bad for making fun of me. I will loosen my fur so much that it will coat the entire house and it will take her weeks to cleanse the house of my essence! SO THERE!

Hopefully she will keep up these long bike rides. I love it when I can run free, alongside her bike, with my feet flying over the ground. She makes me wait at the street corners but otherwise I can run as fast as the wind.

Mom said that tonight we are going to take a long walk with Woody. That really cheers me up bunches. When I don't get to see my man for a while his smell changes so much that I have to re-sniff every inch of him. He says his mom gives him a bath almost EVERY week?? I know he's lying. Only a dirty, filthy, grody dog would need a bath more than twice a year.

Get ready for spring DoGs! The sun is shinin' and the road is clear!

Mom is Frazzled

Mom keeps closing the laptop so I haven't been able to update in a while. She is a little stressed about work and when she gets home I don't think she wants to think about a computer. She said something about a virus in her network???

She is working long hours and hardly has the energy to take me for a walk when she gets home... I AM NOT AMUSED!! I have to sit alone at home all day and she only comes by at lunch for a quick job around the neighborhood. She has been trying to nap after she finally finishes work but I need to RUN!!!

When I tell her how much I need to go out, she just says "Give me a minute." She needs a minute my heine! She takes forever getting the mail, going potty, turning on the heat and TV. What a stinkin waste. I continue to remind her that OUT is where we should be, nudging her ankles a little bit when I can. Today, she finally got around to finding her tennis shoes and I got so excited I ran down the alley and barked like a mad woman at the dufus dog by his fence!!!

I told him what a sucker he was for never getting to go on runs with his mom and that I thought he was a silly "little" dog!! woof! That was a blast.

Sometimes my vocabulary seems lacking in variety. I can say a few words but not really enough to tell mom all my thoughts and feelings. Luckily she TOTALLY understands the sense that I need a treat and my brain waves can guide her to the kitchen cabinet! Yummy!

You could say I am bilingual. Border Collie is my native language. Nudging, Eyeing, Growls, and Barks. They get most of my points across. Mom's Language - English - is my second language and over the years she has taught me to say "OUT", "NOW", and a small whimper of "Please". Other than that, I have to use the eyes, brainwaves, and nose to tell her where to go.

Finally, My third language is DoG. It is the zen art of communication that I share with all of GoD's creatures, including dogs. Squirrels, rabbits, mice, birds, cats, opossum, and dogs all have to communicate without their mom's knowing what they are saying. This is my favorite language!

Hope to get back on the laptop for another update soon. Have fun DoGs!!
