My friend, Ken, is the BEST!

Last week, my Mom and Dad took me to my friend, Ken's house.  Ken did not waste any time checking out the available food in the refrigerator.  That is what he found for me:

1.  Rice

2.  Spinach

3.  A pork chop

4.  Steak for dessert

Wow, does it get any better than this?  I don't think so.  That's why I ALWAYS want to go visit Ken - after all, he has the BEST food!

I made sure to give Ken a BIG thank you slobber for giving me ALL that food.  I have only one word to describe the whole experience:


Like I always say, you just never know when life will take a change for the better.  When you least expect something, your life will change, and you'll get just want you want - just like me!  Of course, make sure to thank the person who makes your life better.  Also, if I ever show up at your house, make sure to have some steak for me - it's my favorite dessert.

Some New Friends and Getting Teased at the Dog Park

Well, it's about time - I have a new friend at the dog park, and she's a girl dog!

Her name is Sydney, and she's a very nice dog.  We have a lot in common as you can see in the picture.  We even like to look at the same things.

Also, check out another new friend, Walley the Dog!  He's just like me - we like to put everything in our mouths!

Or, maybe he's just sniffing that toy - I can't tell.  I can tell that Walley, the Dog, is a strong and handsome dog - just like me!  See, I have something in common with him, too!

Now here's my friend, Hunter the Dog who likes to tease me:

My Mom bought me a nice new ball - even though I don't really like to play with these balls - unless they belong to someone else.  Well, Hunter must feel the same way.  He took my ball and wouldn't give it back to me.  I would try to grab it, and he would grab it away every single time.  It was fun for a while, but then I got bored.  That's when Hunter decided he didn't want the ball after all, and neither did I.  

Like I always say, if someone's annoying you, make believe you don't care.  That way the annoying dog or person will get bored and leave you alone.  Also, make new friends whenever you can.  It's always very exciting and fun for me to meet new dog buddies - even if they're annoying.  Teasing isn't really fun so I wouldn't recommend it.  It's much easier to play nicely and get along.  Plus if someone's bothering me, I just wander off and do something else.  That's much easier than getting upset.  I would much rather be happy by myself.

How to make good choices and be a smart cookie!

Life is full of choices, even for dogs.  For example, every day I have to decide which couch to sit on.  Of course, I make my decision carefully because I want to be aware of what's going on in the kitchen so I don't miss out on any food opportunities. 

Last week these food eating opportunities were available:

Choice One:

Choice Two:

Choice Three:

                                                         zero = nothing = saddest, but best choice

What should I do?  I didn't want to get in trouble so I made the best choice which was getting nothing to eat.  It's sad but true.  I LOVE TO EAT so this was not an easy choice.

Like I always say, think before you do anything, especially something that might get you in trouble.  It's hard to make the good choices, but it's much harder to get in trouble for making mistakes.  Of course, I learned the hard way; that's why I don't jump on the counter and grab whatever food I want.  That means that it's ok to make mistakes as long as you learn from them.  So be smart and make smart choices - just like me.  We'll be smart cookies together.  After all, cookies are one of my favorite treats!

I had an amazing day!

 When my Mom, Dad and brother, Derek leave for the day, I'm left all alone in the house.  When this happens, I patrol the house to make sure that there nothing on the floor to eat - remember the jelly donuts I found in Derek's room?  I'm so hopeful that I might find another special treat that I check the whole house - just in case.

Well, last week, I hit the jackpot!  Instead of finding a treat, I found my brother, Andrew, asleep in his bed, and it was light out so I woke him right up.  Later, I heard him tell my Mom that I woke him up early at 9 o'clock - whatever that means.  Any way, if it's light out, it's time to wake up and enjoy the day.

My lucky day continued with a walk around the lake.  I even got to go IN the lake:

How AMAZING is this!  I walked in the lake.  My Mom NEVER lets me do this.

Then Andrew got lunch at Fred's Franks.  I was wondering why they didn't have any treats for me.  I'll even eat food that falls on the ground since I don't care if my food is dirty.  Actually, dirt makes food taste even better.

Like I always say, check out EVERYTHING EVERY SINGLE DAY.  You never know when an adventure is waiting for you right under your nose (that's a snout, if you're a dog).  If you do have an adventure, enjoy every single minute because your life is NOW!  Make every moment count!

My Newest Humiliation

I do LOVE my Dad because he LOVES to give me treats, and he shares his food with me ALL THE TIME.  I have absolutely no complaints with any of that.  When he decides to pick me up, that's where I draw the line:

I mean, GIVE ME A BREAK!  I'm a big dog so no one should be picking me up.  Getting picked up is for little dogs like Lulu, the Puppy or my friend, Blake, the Dog.  It's not for proud dogs like me.  Can you tell exactly how I feel in the picture?  This is embarrassing!  All I want to say is, "PUT ME DOWN NOW!"

Like I always say, your parents are going to embarrass you A LOT.  I guess there's not much we can do about it except hope that it's over ASAP.  Luckily, I weigh a good amount so no one can pick me up for long - not that they should in the first place.  If your parents embarrass you - see above picture - just remember that they love you A LOT.  Being embarrassed is a small price to pay for being loved so much.

p.s. I hope that I NEVER get picked up again.
