Many puppy kisses and wiggly butt wags. Happy 2012 to all :-)
Wow! Just wow! Last weekend was EPIC!!!
On Saturday, my Mama and Papa had arranged a play date with my friend Moxie. Moxie is a French Bulldog Puppy I met during my evening walks in summer when she and I were just tiny puppies. Moxie also has a Facebook page like I do and is the loveliest French Bulldog puppy you can think of. We haven’t seen each other for a while now, because it gets dark so early these days, that we missed each other on our daily walks.
This is why I’m soooo glad our humans set up this play date. It was EPIC!
We played a lot that afternoon! We ran, we wrestled, we cuddled and jumped up and down. Fun! Fun! Fun!
I really hope that I’ll meet Moxie again very soon, because playing with her is always fantastic!
You can imagine how pooped I was afterwards.
All the photos of Moxie and me were shot by Moxie’s Papa btw. I think those photos are awesome!!!
And I needed all the sleep I could get that night, because on Sunday, Mama, Papa and me drove all the way up north to Tiburon to meet some of my Beardie friends.
We joined some of the members of the Northern California Bearded Collie Fanciers Club for a Beardie Holiday walk.
That was so funny! There were so many Beardies that everybody that walked by was smiling and giggling. It was too cute! All this tail wagging and bouncing. Beardies are really fun to hang out with. Not a bad word and even the older ones enjoyed being cuddled and kissed by me. Tee-hee.
I met my friends Kalle and Sepp again and made a ton of new friends that day. I also met Maverick, a Beardie from my Breeder too. Although we don’t share the same parents I felt a connection with him right away. My Mama and Papa told me later that day, that they’ve met him almost a year ago at a workshop in Pacifica and that he was one of the reasons they decided to adopt me.
THANK YOU MAVERICK!!!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU :-)
After a looooooong walk with all my Beardie friends Mama, Papa stopped on the way back home at a Golden Gate Bridge Vista Point to make family portraits. Wohoo! Finally! Now we’ve got a nice set of family portraits and I’m in each and every one of them.
I love my family
…my family, my friends, my toys and that I got some of the Thanksgiving Turkey (tee-hee)
Last Thursday was a huge thing! I could tell because Papa went to the dog park with me early in the morning and when we came back home, the whole house was smelling soooooo delicious. Mama was in the kitchen for hours already and I saw a huge bird in the oven.
In the afternoon we got some of Mama’s and Papa’s friends coming to our place and they even brought a little furry friend for me. His name was Griffin and I liked him a lot. We had great fun. And those humans were great too. They all played with me. That was awesome!
Then the humans had dinner, featuring this gigantic turkey. It smelled soooooo fantastic!
After the humans had finished, I got some of it too. Yummy!!!
Mama said, that this big day was called Thanksgiving, and that I have to tell what I’m grateful for. Well, there you go.
Hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving too.
My favorite toy - Horst, the boar - was almost destroyed by me. NOOOOOOOOOO!
See for yourself:
Mama said he’s now called “nearly-headless-Horst”
I was devastated. I loved Horst sooooo much! Mama said I couldn’t play with him any more because the stuffing was coming out and she didn’t want me to eat it. EAT IT? ME?
….well probably - teehee
So imaging how sad I was when we had to say goodbye to Horst.
But then, something nice happened. Mama went shopping and when she came back she brought Horst’s twin brother Horst II!
Wohoooooo! I’m a happy puppy again
Wishing you all a happy Thanksgiving tomorrow and lots and lots of Turkey (hope I’ll get some too)
And because it’s Wednesday, here’s the blog hop to hop around …
Apparently I’m a herding dog that’s supposed to be herding sheep. SOMEONE apparently forgot to tell me about that little detail when showing me 3! sheep the other week.
Have you ever seen a sheep? They are HUGE!!! And they make very very strange noises and they have weird eyes and they are HUGE!!! Did I mention HUGE?
How am I little fluff ball, supposed to be herding those gigantic animals? I don’t see it, nope, absolutely not. It’s a mystery how those monsters would even consider following my commands…
I have to admit, that I even got a little scared when they moved and made those funny noises. So I sat down in a safe distance and observed. I was very relieved to find out, that they were behind a fence. Phew, no way they could’ve come out after me.
Somehow, my safety precautions made Mama and Papa laugh. I don’t see how this could be funny. As I said before; they are HUGE!
Now they keep telling me that I’m a herding dog, and that I should rethink my fear of sheep, because apparently I like herding things like German Shepherds, Mama, Papa, my friends…..
Well, I’m just saying: THEY ARE HUGE
Who’s with me on that one?
