I love your blog too, Randi! Thanks so much. Twin Cities pride, yo!
I'm going to paw this forward to some blogs that I love: Ms. Jemima Jones, Winston Pugsworth, Ricky Pepper (and Lucy, Chloe, and Sophie!), Sparky & Patches, and Clover. Even if you already have been given this award, I do love your blogs. I really love all of my doggy friend's blogs.
Today I get to tell you about my adventures at the DOG PARK on the Mississippi River! In this picture I'm like, whoa lady, you mean I get to run around without a leash!? You're the best mom EVER!
These are my bodyguards, Justice the Labradobie and Lucy the GREAT Dane.
She's sniffin' out an unsavory lookin' character for me here.
Hmm, I don't know about this guy. It looks as if he's trying to steal my mommy's affections.
Doh - she totally fell for it! She gave him a treat! I guess he's pretty cute. His name is Tugboat. He followed mom around for a while.
I think I let the jellyfish get to me a little bit. Here I am bullying around a lab. Fortunately for him, he managed to escape my puppy teeth by diving into the mighty waters of the Mississippi.
I met all sorts of dogs and humans and smelled lots of new scents. I even came when mommy called and stuck pretty close to her. She was totally PARANOID about me taking off on her.
The car ride was an added bonus. I didn't even have to ride in my little blue box! The 'rents must have been in a really good mood. Maybe somebody gave them extra treats.
Speaking of treats, I have to thank my grammie and aunti Maui for the new PINK Puppia harness! They picked up the harness along with other treats for me at a cute doggy boutique in Seattle. I have no idea where that is! Mom says it's close to Duke & Gidget and Winston.
Now I'll tackle a tag from my puggy friend Suki. She said I have to think of five nicknames for my mom. I had to take a couple days to mull over this one. Here's what I came up with:
- Mommy, of course.
- Lady - that's what I call her when I'm feeling sassy.
- WOMAN! - I try to save this for the mornings when I'm demanding to come out of my kennel or to be fed NOW.
- The Human With Opposable Thumbs - because those suckers come in handy for opening food containers and making money to buy me treats and stuff.
- Big Bad Mean Mommy - this is when mommy talks about dressing me up like a like a baseball or a chicken for Halloween, makes me sleep in past 6 am, says it is NOT okay to munch on the furniture, computer, or her toes, tells me I've had enough treats, or is generally being a bad mommy.
The Volkswagen Beetle, of course. Like me, this car is:
- Stylish and trendy
- Somewhat flat-nosed
- A little bug-eyed
