Team Hardaway Gets Down

This posture is called the “down.” I got this. But there’s another piece I don’t understand at all. It’s called the “stay.”
I always position my down between Mommis’s legs. I feel that’s the best place to be. But then when Mommis moves, shouldn’t I move with her? Isn’t that “staying”–between her legs? But no. The other boys on Team Hardaway know you’re supposed to let her just leave you. I’ll never get there. I love her too much.

Water Dog Paradise

Last night it rained. And rained. And rained. And then the rain came in under the back door and into Mommis’s office. It was so much fun…me and Blu ran through it and played. Sammy barked up a storm (I made a pun,  or was it a poop?)

Mommis was not as happy as I was, and I think that’s because she’s not a water dog.

Entrepreneurs

Entrepreneurs are nice people who like dogs and even will take you outside to pee. How do I know? Mommis took me to the Mesa Entrepreneurship Roundtable tonight and while she was speaking I walked around the table meeting all the people. There was one cat person but she was still nice. She wants to make sunscreens for cars with cat paws on them but she agreed to do dogs next.


Mommis  was pretty busy so this lady Pam took me out to pee. This saved me from potential embarrassment!

I like entrepreneurs.

She’s Back!


We were all back together again this morning. Mommis materialized mysteriously on Wednesday night. UncleEd brought her home.But then my lover Leeloo didn’t show up at the park on Thursday.

 I thought she broke up with me, but then she showed up today. I was so excited I think I assaulted her. 

She put her tail down and didn’t speak to me for almost the whole walk! But then she forgave me. I will never do that to her again; I respect women.

Especially I respect Mommis because she came home.

Mommis is Gone For Two Weeks

My life is so strange nowadays. My daily routine, with the park and Leeloo and Gage and Jackson and Xena and Chai and everyone else is gone. Mostly I sit behind the gate. Uncle Max takes us out in the yard, and throws to Trina and Sammy. Uncle Dan comes over. But I never see my true love, Leeloo.

Until…every once in a while Uncle Ed descends on the scene. Uncle Ed is my special Uncle, and he is some sort of god. He takes me to the park and I get to play keepaway, which I have become good at from defending myself against Trina and Blu and Sammy:

I also got to see Leelooo, and she still loves me!

And Chai was there, too. Everyone was there. I got rid of Chai though.

I don’t know where Mommis found that Uncle Ed fellow, but he is golden. I mean, he is a golden.

Freed by Uncle Ed!

B27.9

Ever since that Mommis woman who I thought loved me so much vaporized I’ve been having a boring summer. I spent most of the day in the living room behind the gates with the other boys and Trina, who are all older. And I hadn’t seen Leeloo at all although I thought about her a lot.

And then suddenly yesterday Uncle Dan took a picture of me behind the gate with Blu.

Mysteriously, the next morning Uncle Ed showed up and freed me — took me to the park to see Leeloo and Zena and Jackson Dog. I was so happy!!!! They were all there. Except Mommis.

I did manage to find out that Mommis is in Portugal, where they have wine, fish and oranges, and they swim a lot. I hope Mommis will teach me to swim if she ever comes home.

In the meantime, whoever found this Uncle Ed dude for me deserves a big golden kiss!

Mommis Has Vaporized

The most terrible and unexpected thing happened last night. Uncle Max took Mommis somewhere in the car and she never came back! She’s vanished.

I think it has something to do with my peeing on the floor, about which I do feel bad, but Sammy says i’m wrong. He says it is the pink suitcase. The pink suitcase takes Mommis away, and he says this happens a lot more than we’d like. He saw the pink suitcase come out of the closet a couple of days ago and immediately got di-di and stopped eating. He acted all nervous, like something was going to happen. And sure enough, it did. She left.

Just when I thought puppy life was over for me, Uncle Ed came and picked us up and took us to the park. Things got better there, because Leeloo was there. and I found another one of those great water bottles that make the noise I like.

But I sure miss Mommis.
