Dog Party

I never went to a real dog party before, but Mommis took me to one tonight. There were lots of strange dogs and I was scared at first and I stood next to Mommis who is scared of nothing and also bigger than me. But then some of the dog started playing and Leeloo ​

​came, and I ended up having a great time. I even walked into the lake

Our Abortive Photo Shoot

So this morning in the park all the dogs were there, so we tried to get them all in a down for a photo shoot. I do down very well ( although not so well at “sit”) and Sammy is awesome at down. So notice who is down for the shoot. Yes, Team Hardaway, a.k.a. The Blue Man Group (for our blue rave collars)17159120_10155134548102792_4080248158513262477_o Jack is at least in a sit, Xena is running toward the photographer, Amy’s down, the Bernese Mountain Jack is in a down, Moby is walking around, and Lady Leeloo seems to be unconcerned. How come WE always have to obey Mommis?

Reunited and it Feels So Good

 I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before, but my girlfriend Leeloo went into heat over Christmas vacation and I haven’t been able to see her or play with her. I didn’t understand it but Mamas told me her mother didn’t want her to get pregnant. I don’t even know what pregnant is but I love Leeloo.
Well I guess she is cold again, because her daddy brought her over yesterday to spend the weekend with us and I was so excited. We played all day long. I hope she never gets hot again .I like her just fine cold.

Alexa, Turn the Lights On

“Alexa,”  Mommis yells.  “Turn the lights on.” I don’t know who Alexa is, because the only other people in the room are us, but whoever she is she does turn the lights on, and that startles us awake. I don’t know why Mommis persists in waking up so early.

I think that’s why Bruce doesn’t go with us. Sammy, of course, is just Mommis’s little shill and will go anywhere. I go, but often with a deep sigh, wishing she’d wait a little later.

It’s always good once we get out there, though. I love the park.

Portraits of Pups: Jackson Dog

This is Jackson Dog. His mother’s name is Carol, and he is huge. Large and in charge. Very excited to see everyone all the time and a mountain of energy. He is three but I play with him every morning.

When he sees Mommis you can just see how badly he wants to jump up on her, but once she was holding his leash sitting down on a restaurant patio and he dragged her and her chair across the patio and dislocated her finger. That’s how strong he is.

So Aunt Carol has taught him that he cannot jump up on anyone and he has to curb his enthusiasm. We love him.
