I'm Going on Vacation!!!

We are going on vacation for a few days to a very dog-friendly place with beaches and bluffs and meadows and creeks! It's called Mendocino! (Mendocino is home to the only restaurant in California where dogs can eat INDOORS!!!) I am very excited to go, but I have to wait for Daddy to wake up before we can leave. I guess I will spend this time packing my bag. I can also tell you what I have been doing lately.

I sure have had a busy couple of weeks! August has been much better than July so far. No surgeries! Yay! Two weekends ago we went to our favorite pet supply store to find something for me to chew on while I am on crate rest. Being still is soooo boring that Mommy and Daddy decided that they wanted to get me a special treat. We bought these dried sweet potato things and then we went to the coffee shop next door to get Daddy a treat. While Mommy and I were waiting outside, she opened the sweet potato package and I practically tried to grab it out of her hands! She gave me one to eat on her lap, and it was soooo good! She was surprised because she had bought me a sample one of these before, but I didn't like it at all. Maybe it was too dried out. But these were moist and delicious and chewy! Look at me chowing down:

A couple of weeks ago Mommy did a bad thing and ordered me another jacket plus TWO more Puppia harnesses (one pink and one brown). We eagerly awaited its arrival for a looong time, and it finally arrived the other day! I will take a picture of me in my new Urban Hund jacket while we are on vacation this week. It is brown corduroy lined with pink fleece! They included some sample treats in the package, and I was very interested in finding out what they were. I dug and scratched at the package to no avail. She finally had to help me get them out, and guess what they were. Peanut butter ballz! Oh yummy yummy! Mommy checked the PB recall pet food/treat list first to see if they were on it, and when they got the all-clear, I chowed down! It was a little bit hard to get started because they are so huge and they roll around like a ball! At first I didn't know whether to eat it or play with it! I figured it out eventually. So delicious!

In other news, I received an award from my new friend Coco the chihuahua. She says I am a gem! Thank you, Coco! How sweet of you!

I will see you all after my picturesque coastal vacation!!!
Bye for now,
Poppy the LBC

Hi Poppy,

It is great to see you up and getting around so well. Those pb balls look really yummy. We had some sweet potato fries not long ago but they were yucky but yours do look tastier!

I can't wait to see your new coat. Pink and brown are my favorite colors!

Have a terrific time on your vacation. Getting to eat indoors with the hoomans. Wow what a treat!

Congrats on the award!

Wags & wiggles,

Mmmm... was it a Sam's Yams? I had one of those once upon a time before my pancreas got angry at me - it was one of the best days of my life.

And it is NEVER naughty to order things for doggies! It's GREAT! I can't wait to see your new jacket! :-)

Have fun!
