Girl Scout Cookies rock my world!!

I am having a busy weekend! Yesterday me and My MamaFigure started a project together. The Grandgirl is a Brownie and she is selling cookies, so My MamaFigure ordered her favorite --Do-Si-Dos!!! The Grandgirl cannot eat anything with peanut butter in it, so My MamaFigure told me that it was up to the two of us to eat them all before the Grandgirl came to visit us. We started our project Friday afternoon when she got home from her work and worked late into the night while watching a movie.
Saturday morning we ate the last two for breakfast. Whew! Just in time too! The Grandgirl will be here in a few minutes to get her Brownie vest so she can deliver more cookies to other people. I am so happy I got to help My MamaFigure with this project!
That Man likes Samoas. He is on his own because I cannot eat chocolate.
I am really happy that The Grandgirl is a Brownie!!

A Tale of a Tail

"Oh, he has the cutest face!" I hear this all the time and as much as I like it, my other end feels left out. My MamaFigure says it makes her think about donuts.

I Took a Dump at PetSmart Yesterday

Yesterday was a fun, exciting day. I had to stay in The Hole for a little while, but when That Man and My MamaFigure got home they took me to PetSmart! I got lots of attention while I was there. Everybody said how cute I am and wanted to pet me. I felt like a rock star. There was a lot of different smells in the store. Dogs were everywhere and I barked at them while hiding behind That Man's legs. What with all the excitement of feeling like a rock star and the different smells in the store, my bowels began to churn and pretty soon I had to hunker down and poop. That Man called to My MamaFigure and said in a loud whisper, "He's sh****g!!" Well, what was I supposed to do? My bowels were in an uproar. My MamaFigure thought it was funny and laughed.

After my poop was cleaned up, I tried on lots of jackets. I am going camping in a few weeks and That Man and My MamaFigure want me to be warm and look stylish. Here is a picture of me in my new jacket. My MamaFigure says I look cute. That Man thinks I'm cute, but he won't tell me. I think I look gangsta. I like it.

A Bed and a Burger. Ahhhhh!

Here's another cute picture of me. This time I'm taking it easy in my new bed. The rust and brown colors are masculine and rugged, like me. See my hamburger? I like to chew on it while I'm in my new bed. My MamaFigure asked That Man if he thought I like to chew on the hamburger in my new bed because I see the similarities in the shapes. That Man said why don't you ask Mister Bean, he'd be able to tell you more than I can.

My Favorite Room

Here's a picture of me looking cute in my MamaFigure's sewing room. She spends a lot of time in here telling me to get out of stuff. I think she really likes to, and I want to make her happy, so I find lots of things to do. See the bookcase behind me? My MamaFigure has lots of quilting books and cookbooks in it.
This is my favorite one.
She drops little scraps of cloth in this box.
And I knock it over and grab a piece and run!!!!
Last night I did a really fun thing. My MamaFigure doesn't wear shoes while she sews on her sewing machine. I saw her foot on the foot-thing and it was going up and down making the machine work. I watched her foot for a long time before I jumped on it and bit her toe a little bit. She made a funny sound and it made me bark. And then I ran out of the room.
Yeah, I love to spend time with my MamaFigure in her sewing room.

My MamaFigure loves me.

How does my MamaFigure love me? Let me count the ways.

She gives me chewy treats just because she thinks I'm cute.

She lets me cuddle with her all I want.

She never gets mad at me or fusses at me when I have accidents.She just cleans it up and asks me if I have to go outside. After all, I'm just a puppy.

She brushes my teeth with chicken-flavored toothpaste.

She lets me sit on her purple robe lap in the evenings while we watch TV.

She keeps my blanket clean so I won't be stinky in The Hole.

She talks to me.

She and That Man take me to the vet so i won't get sick.

She feeds me Science Diet because she wants me to be healthy.

She brushes my fur and doesn't yell at me when I squirm.

She pets me in the morning until I wake up. She doesn't want me to be scared.

Sometimes she calls me Bean-o. I like it when she calls me Bean-o.

She shares her morning Cheerios with me.

She calls That Man from her work everyday to check on me.

She takes a blanket outside when she sits on the porch so I won't get cold while I'm sitting beside her on the swing.

She pets me all the time.

She is always happy to see me when she gets home.

She hugs me.

She checks my collar to make sure it isn't too tight.

She would like it if I learned tricks, but I really don't have to. She loves me anyway.

She takes me for walks in the yard. If big dogs are around she makes them leave.

She sits in the floor and tosses my toys so I can play chase.

She washes my face because my wrinkles get stuff in them.

She doesn' t mind that I grunt and snort all the time.

My MamaFigure loves me. She tells me all the time.

In The Hole

My MamaFigure and That Man are going to another birthday party at Mamaw's and AntJuJu's. My MamaFigure said I can't go because I will wear my welcome out if I poop on the carpet again like I did at the last party. So I get to spend the afternoon in The Hole.
Nobody knows the troubles I've seen, nobody knows the sorrow.

I am wearing a new collar! That Man says I can only wear this collar today. What is a sissy anyway? My MamaFigure says I can spread lots of pug love today because it is Valentine's Day. I got a big bag of chewy treats too (my favorite).

At the Woodpile

Here I am at the woodpile. See my cute curly tail? I like sniffing the leaves and biting the sticks. Sometimes I growl like a big dog. The woodpile is my favorite place to take care of business, then I get a chewy treat (my favorite) and me and my MamaFigure run really, really fast back to my house and she gives me another chewy treat for being so cute. She thinks I'm cute even when I'm at the woodpile; That Man thinks I'm cute too, but he won't tell me.

Separation Anxiety

I miss my MamaFigure when she takes a shower. So I peer under the bathroom door until she lets me in. Then I sniff the wet bath rug and I'm happy again.

Cousin Chester

This is my Cousin Chester. He lives with Ourson and Ourdawternlaw. He is very tiny. He peed on me. And that's all I've got to say about that.

My First Doctor's Visit

Here I am standing on the big tray waiting on the doctor. My MamaFigure said I looked cute. That Man thought I was cute too, but he didn't tell me. I barked at a big dog while sitting in That Man's lap. The big dog looked like it got lots of chewy treats to eat. Everybody made a big fuss over me. I liked it. I weighed 6 pounds and 7 ounces and I have really healthy poop. The doctor gave me a shot and his nice assistant gave me some stuff to keep my poop healthy.
Here's a big bark-out to Dr. Wilke and all the folks at Red Bank Animal Hospital!! You're all awesome and you're all my new friends!!!!

Mysterious Talk

There is talk this morning about a "vet visit" and "possible shots". I am not sure what's going on, but I hope I get a chewy treat. Chewy treats are my favorite.

Living the Good Life

Ah! I love it when my MamaFigure wears her purple robe and I sit in her lap and watch Dogs 101 on Animal Planet! Notice my ear? It's a little wonky.

My Cousin Shorty

This is my cousin Shorty. He lives next door. We haven't sniffed butts yet, 'cause I've only been here 3 weeks. Should I sniff first, or wait on him to sniff mine? He's older and has been here a long time and I wouldn't want to offend him, plus he is ginormous and I'm just a little guy.

Party Time!

I went to my Aunt JuJu's birthday party Friday night! Yaaaaaay! My first party and she had lots of toys for me to play with. I found out later that they were my Cousin Margaret's cat toys. That basket was really easy to knock over. Toys everywhere!!! Good times!!! I peed 4 times outside and only pooped once on the carpet.
I love my Aunt JuJu very much! She is holding me like a baby and practicing for when she has a baby in July. Hey!!! Maybe she and Uncle Fred will name the baby after me!!!

Private Matters

I found my privates, but my MamaFigure won't post a picture.

Bad to the Bone

After I'd been here about a week, the Grandgirl and the Grandboy made up a song about me.

It is sung to the tune of "Bad to the Bone" by George Thorogood and the Destroyers.

He chews Granny's houseshoes,
da Da da Da dah!
And electrical cords,
da Da da Da dah!
There's paper towels,
da Da da Da dah!
All over the floor!
da Da da Da dah!
He's bad to the bone!
da Da da Da dah!
He's bad to the bone!
da Da da Da dah!!
Yeah, I'm bad!! But I'm cute, My MamaFigure says so! And That Man thinks so, but he won't tell me.

Just in Time

It's a good thing I got here! This house slipper was totally out of control! I straightened it out first thing!!!!

Coming Home

Here I am coming home to live with My MamaFigure & That Man. I was 9 weeks old when they adopted me. The Grandgirl and The Grandboy held me in the back seat all the way home.
