Resting After My Bath

Today I got a bath.  Janet, the Groomer, even says that I have an ear infection so now I have to go to the doctor tomorrow.  UGH!  Just when I think the worst is over, something even worse happens.

In the meantime, this is what I'm doing today:

Here I am in my front yard - my favorite place on Earth - trying to rest and recover from my bath, and along comes my Mom to take my picture AGAIN!  Why does she need another picture?  I always look the same.  Of course, today I smell like soap - SUPER UGH!  I want to smell like a REAL dog.  It shouldn't take me long to get back to my usual delightful smell - I just need to roll around in some dirt and/or rabbit poop - this does the job every time.

Like I always say, life doesn't always go your way, but you'll get through it.  Just make sure to take some time to rest and recover after any BIG events - see above picture. You'll feel much better if you are rested.  Plus, these BIG events just get you ready for even BIGGER events, like going to the veterinarian - check back tomorrow for news on that BIG event.

The Bad Guy

Every morning my Mom takes me for a walk.  I LOVE my walks because I LOVE to check out what's new.  Well, sometimes we see the BAD GUY:

Now I don't know the BAD GUY's name, I just know when he's there - even before I see him.  I can smell the BAD GUY - even when it's dark in the morning.  I just know he's there so I pull my Mom across the street or I try to escape.  I don't want the BAD GUY to come near me.  This is how I look when I see the BAD GUY:

When the BAD GUY is around, I cry, snort and pull on my leash.  Also, I put my tail between my legs because I'm that scared of the BAD GUY.  This is what the BAD GUY says every time he sees me:

"I see you over there.  I don't get it.  I have 2 dogs of my own.  Dogs love me.  I just don't get it."

Oh, well, I don't get it either, I just know he's the BAD GUY, and I don't want him near me.

Like I always say, you're not going to like everyone, but you do have to be respectful.  I'm respectful - I just mind my own business.  That's just what you have to do some times.  I've had a LOT of practice minding my own business when it comes to the BAD GUY.  Of course, if he gave me a treat, I might consider going near him.  At least, it would be a start....

It's a ducky day!

Every morning my Mom takes me for a walk.  I LOVE going for walks because I love checking out what's new in the neighborhood. 

Well, as soon as we got out the door, some ducks landed right in my yard!

I couldn't believe how incredibly lucky I was.  I was definitely in the right place at the right time.  I absolutely LOVE ducks.  After all, I am part Labrador Retriever, and that's what labs are supposed to do:  swim out and retrieve ducks.  That's why I have webbed feet so that I can be an amazing swimmer.  These ducks would have been easy to chase - unless they decided to fly off.  Then I would have been out of luck which I was any way since my Mom had me on the leash.

Like I always say, be on the lookout for new adventures because they could be waiting for you right outside your front door.  Make sure to go out and look - if you don't look in the first place, you'll never know what you're missing!

Now I have a Red Sox shirt!

As you might remember, I DO NOT LIKE TO WEAR ANYTHING!  I already wear a fur coat ALL THE TIME!  I don't need clothes.  Well, guess what?  It was my Dad's birthday, and look what he got for a present - a Red Sox shirt for me!  The worst part was:  it was a present from my Mom.  Now she should know better than this!

Why would my Dad's birthday present be a shirt for me?  I don't understand.  Plus, my family kept taking pictures of me like I'm someone famous or something.  UGH - HOW ANNOYING!

Like I always say, just put up with all the annoyances, and don't let anyone know you're annoyed.  Do I look annoyed?  I hope not, but I can tell you, I AM REALLY ANNOYED!  It's hard to get these shirts on, and it's EVEN harder to get them off.  Well, I just hope my Dad enjoyed his birthday present - plus, now Father's Day is coming up.  Help!  What are they going to do to me next?
