Wow just Wow!

I had such a huge day today! It started at about 5:30am. I was afraid Mum was gonna go to work and leave me home again, so I thought I would wake her up for some play time. She yelled at me to go to bed, so I laid down in front of her door. At 6:15 she finally got up and gave me my breakfast and by 7 we were at the dog park.
We spent an hour at the dog park, and it was the best run I've had in a while. I fell asleep on the way home. I took a nap when we got home and I think Mum went to the mall. When I woke up Mum put me in the car and we went to the Coquitlam River. I did a little swimming but mostly splashed in the shallow water. Mum had a tube and lounged in the river.
Oh....and she saved a little boy! He was floating down the river on a float board and his parents couldn't catch him. They told him to jump off the board but he was too scared. That was probably good though because the water was moving really fast and he was only a skinny little guy. Mum waded out and caught his board and dragged him to the shore, and his parents came to get him.
When we got home I was exhausted! I did some lounging in the sun before having supper and taking another nap. Mum says we're gonna go again tomorrow! I better rest up. Have a good weekend everyone.

Papa is missing!

I don't know where my Papa is! He left yesterday morning and he hasn't come back! I wanted to make signs and offer a two Fromm treat reward, but Mum said it wasn't necessary.
Mum says he's gone on a vacation. I don't know what that is...and Mum said she couldn't remember well enough to explain it to me. She did say though that he was going to italy, and he would bring me a present.
That leaves me with only two questions....when will he bring my present, and does Ferragamo make dog collars?

Oh the horror!

I don't even know where to begin! Mum took me to the vet today and I got way more than I bargained for!

I was supposed to just get my booster shots updated, but I got a FULL check-up. That's right they took my temperature...and not in the ear. Then they checked something called my prostate....that wasn't in my ear either. Then the vet gave me something called a douche..and we wont even go there. I was horrified.  She said though that I looked really good and my hart and lungs sound good too.
The cool part about the whole thing though is that my doctor was a bulldog too...a Georgia Bulldog. She is a new doctor at my vet clinic so this was the first time we met her. She was really nice and really friendly and she knew Uga!....Uga V to be more precise.  She was pretty excited to meet me, and she said I was very cute and very sweet and very mellow....and she would know! I told her I have a Georgia Bulldogs t-shirt at home, and I couldn't wait to tell Nonno about my new doctor...he bought me the t-shirt. I have two dogs of separation  from a legend!
Mum felt bad for me after my surprise check-up so we went to a park near by for a good walk. We love walking in the woods, and we met some other dogs, and saw some squirrels...they creep me out...Mum says Aunt Alana calls them "rats with tails" and I can understand why.
So after that morning I have been pretty tuckered. I better go that I have my boosters and my certificate I can go to camp at any time! I need to be prepared.

Penny for your thoughts, thoughts for Peso

Just found out my long lost Mexican cousin Peso, died this week. I didn't meet Peso, but Mum and Papa said he was a very good boy and a cutie.
So, I just wanna send a shout out to all my peeps and fur-friends in TO. We're very sorry for your loss.

Let's all spill a little from our water dishes for all the dead homeys.

No more pullups, I'm a big kid now!

I'm kidding! I never wore pull-ups, I'm a dog remember....and my Mum might be crazy.....but she's not crazy for doggy diapers.... And yes they do make those! Ewww...

I'm a big boy because I get to play off leash in the front yard with Mum and she knows I won't run away. We did it twice yesterday, and again this morning.

And they went to the movies last night and I didn't have to be put in the kitchen, I had to whole house to myself .... oh yeah!

We all went to the beach yesterday too! I wore my life jacket and even did a little bit of swimming .... no kidding all 4 paws of the ground, and I did it myself.

We met girls too! One girl said "oh he's so cute, I want to take him home." And Mum had to tell Papa she was talking about me not him...duh. And when Mum went swimming, I snuck away from Papa and I tried to introduce myself to a blond in a bikini, but she blew me off. Who knew that sticking your cold wet doggy nose against a girls butt cheek was something they wouldn't like. Papa apologized and dragged me away. Some wing man he turned out to be.

Ok, well I gotta go terrorize Mum's garden. Adios.

Sorry Mummy

So I had a good nap, and lots of time today to think about things. Maybe my Mum isn't so bad. She took me for a walk today, and we played in the grass for a while. And it was really fun. And she shared cherries with me.

Mummy, I am sorry I was a brat. I promise not to trade you if you promise to not make me swim.


(Can we snuggle now?)

An Open Letter to Mum

Dear Mum,
I can't believe the things you have done to me this weekend! I am so hurt.
I can't believe you left me home all day yesterday. It doesn't matter that you took me to the dog park first, or that the neighbor came to visit me twice, or that I had all my toys and the tv to keep me company. I could tell as soon as I licked your foot that you went somewhere awesome, and you didn't take me. I tasted beer and peanuts and cracker jacks.
Today you took me to the beach, but again you felt like punishing me. You know very well that I wear my life jacket for the attention it brings, not so I can swim. You made me swim today, and I will need time to forgive you. Then you made me come home just as that cute frenchie arrived. She could have been my soul mate. I was so upset, I couldn't even look at you on the drive home.
I love you, but if this behavior continues, I will have to consider trading you in.

Now the bells ring...oh wait that's Christmas

Oh My Dogs, you guys! Guess what happened yesterday....I got to help Papa with a really big surprise for Mum. Not just Golden Retriever big but like Great Dane big!
We practiced until I knew my part down pat. Then we waited for Mum to get home from work. When she got home and flopped on the couch, Papa tied a REALLY sparkley ring on a ribbon and put it on my neck, and when he gave me the signal (He told me to bring Mummy her present) I ran over and jumped on top of her. She was super duper surprised. Then Papa asked her if she would marry him....and she said YES!!
Oh I am the luckiest pupper dog ever! No longer will I be an illegitimate puppy, and I might get to wear a tuxedo!! I have already proven my skills as ring bearer!

Oh, oh, and do you know what else! My Mum sent the picture of me in my new collar to the California Collar Co. and they put my picture on their website and said I was "ridiculously cute". We already knew that but its fun when other people recognize it too!

All this excitement has really worn me out. Excuse me while I go nap in front of my fan. Toot-a-loo!

Summer! At last.

It's hot out there! "Basically it's hotter than a snake's ass in a wagon rut." That a Cronauer-ism ... But it's true.....Mum told me that one, she also said I should say Goooood Morning Interneeeeet. She seemed to think it was funny...but sometimes she's the only one who gets her jokes....or pop-culture references...which according to Papa means they weren't really very "pop". 
But really, its so hot she hosed me down before our walk so I wouldn't get too hot....and I am already dry. We would have stayed home but I really needed to wear off some energy. I was driving her nuts!....atleast  that's what she said.... I was only asking nicely: 

So, my Mum bought me a custom made collar, and it came all the way from California. It's really comfy and different from all the other dogs I've met. She ordered it way back in May and I even had to be measured for it, and it finally arrived yesterday. I feel pretty special and look how good I look in it.

Before I had a regular old collar and it wasn't very comfy so they only put it on me when we went out, the rest of the time I was naked. Mum thought it would be good it I had a collar I could wear all the time, so she searched and searched until she found the right one. It even came in it's own dust bag. And now I can follow Mum everywhere and she doesn't need to worry about putting my collar on.

Over the weekend I am hoping Mum will take me to the beach but it might be tough, I think our regular beach is closed because the water got so high the beach disappeared! We might have to find a new place. Mum and Papa are also going to check out a camp for me. They have to go away for a few days in the fall, so I am going to camp! Mum wanted to take me with her, but she was afraid they would lose me when she switches planes. We can't have that.

OK, well I have to go play with my ball in front of the cooling fans. Be back soon.

Happy Canada Day!!!

What a fun day today people.....I hope you all went out and did something to celebrate!
Mum and I celebrated Canada Day by going to Town Center Park. Papa couldn't come with us because he had to work, but we got to see him working at the park. I wore a red bandanna, and looked particularly cute!

I met another bully, and we got to wrestle. It was really fun, even better than last night when we went to the dog park and I got to play with like 6 other dogs. This bully's name was Jackson and he weighed 75 lbs.  He actually made me look little, and he was solid muscle.

There was lots happening in the park today. There were craft stations, food tents, two stages with performers, people giving away trees and even canoe rides! There were lots of dogs, and lots of kids. And even some guy dressed like a giant bird....I don't know what that was about!

Mum and I walked around for a while, we got a drink, and some food and Mum even let me have a finger full of icecream! I never get people food.....she wouldn't share her cannelloni though. :(

By the time we got home I was REALLY tired! I tried to convince Mum to carry me to the house but she wouldn't do it. So I tried to take a nap in the drive way...she wouldn't go for that either! So I had to walk to the house on my own.

Ok nap time for me. Check ya go wave a flag or something.
