Wow! I've been painted!

I must be doing something really amazing because my Mom painted a picture of ME!

I can't believe it!  I feel so special.  I mean, how many people take the time to paint pictures of their dogs?  Plus, the picture looks just like me, and it's a painting of me outside in my yard which is one of my very favorite places.

Like I always say, you can never have enough love and attention.  I sure love feeling like I'm important, and now I know it for sure because I'm in a painting.  Some day I might even be as famous as the Mona Lisa!  Life can be so exciting (although I could do without having my picture taken, but I've given up on that - my Mom never listens to me any way).  I sure do LOVE this painting of me!

Do I really need to Skype?

What will my family make me do next?  I mean they put a cookie on the table, and then when I go to get it, they make me stay standing up:

Then they're all saying, "Say hi to Andrew.  Look, it's Andrew."  This is what I'm thinking:

"My family is crazy."

"Just let me get my cookie and eat it."

"Give me a break."

I could hear Andrew's voice, but he's not here.  I think I got tricked, but at least, I got a treat - even though it was annoying to get it.

Like I always say, if you have a family, they're going to be annoying.  You just have to learn to put up with them and just hope you get some treats along the way.  The treats make it all worth it.  I hope this blog post wasn't too annoying for you.  Thanks for checking in with Gabi, the Dog!

Learning to wait is very IMPORTANT!

You know that I am one very lucky dog.  I also like to be a very good dog because then my Mom takes for rides in the car.  When it's hot out, my Mom even opens the window for me so that I can stick my head out, and she puts the air conditioning on for her.  Now I have a very kind Mom.  When I go places, I end up having to wait in the car.  Don't worry - my Mom or another person in my family always stays with me so that I don't get too hot.  No one should leave their dog in a car on a hot day.  This is another example of how lucky I am.

Any way, here I am waiting again:

This is an important lesson that I've learned from all my waiting:  wait quietly and just check out what's happening outside.  I NEVER complain because then my Mom might get mad at me.  Plus, I might not get to stick my head out the window on car rides which is one of my very favorite things to do.

Like I always say, if you have to wait, it's ok.  Just wait quietly and find something to look at.  In the picture, you can see that I'm just enjoying the view.  You never know who might be walking by.
