New Wildlife

December 29, 2008

My human and I went for a walk today, and we saw a new thing! There is a place with a bunch of trees in our neighborhood, and today an animal came walking out of the trees that I have never seen before! It was red, and had pointy ears, and a long bushy tail. I did not know what it was – is it a kind of dog, or rabbit, or what? So I stood very still and stared at it, and he stood very still and stared at me. Then I barked! And he ran back into the trees.

That was a very interesting thing, I hope I see him again! I think he would be fun to chase.

Level Three Genius

December 27, 2008

The genius toy is a very fun thing! My human puts treats inside, and then I have to get them back out. Now I have three of them, and my human hooked them all together! It only took me 11 minutes and 23 seconds to get all the treats out. Because I am a level three genius!


Merry Christmas!

December 25, 2008

I had a very Merry Christmas this year! I went over to grandma and grandpa’s house to play, and I went on a freedom walk! Grandpa and my human took me for a walk on the trail behind grandpa’s house, and because there was nobody there, I got to walk without my leash! I was very good, I just walked a little bit ahead to scout things out, and came back when they called me. I tried to go into the field, but the snow was very deep, so I decided to stay on the trail. Then we saw a wheelie man, riding down the trail right towards us! But I did not chase him or anything, and then my human said hi to the wheelie man and he said hi to her and then I knew he was Authorized. Grandpa calculated that I walked at least twice as far as they did, because I kept running ahead and running back!

And I got presents! Santa brought me some tasty new things to chew on, and treats, and new squeaky tennis balls! That is very good, because I lost a squeaky ball in the snow, and I will not be able to find it until everything melts. And! I got a genius toy, because I am a genius dog! I have two genius toys already, and they can be hooked together to make an extra hard challenge. But that is no problem, because I am extra smart!

It was a very fun day – thank you Santa for the presents! I will be sure not to bark at you when you come next year.


Magic Snowball

A snowball can be
Just snow, or it can have a
Tennis ball inside!



Stuck Inside

Snow and cold and snow
Will I ever get to go
Play outside again?


Snow Day 2!

December 19, 2008

Today was another snow day – yay! My human stayed home and played with me again today, I got to jump around in all the white stuff that was on the ground. We played snow fetch, which is hard, because the ball sinks into the snow and then I have to Find It. I am learning how to play snow fetch very well, before I would just run and pounce and make a big mess in the snow and then the ball is very hard to find. But now! I have figured out to wait and see the little hole that the ball makes in the snow, and then I pounce right there and get it!

Then we went for a walk in the afternoon, and we saw a person whose car was stuck in the snow and the end of their driveway. My human helped push them out, and she just put my leash down and said Stay and I sat there very patiently until she was done. Because I am a good boy! And, I was waiting to see if she needed my help.

It was a very fun day, and now I am tired – time to sleep!

The crow does not fly
Away, even though I bark.
I bark anyway.
