The Bunny Hop

Mommy and Daddy haven't been taking a lot of pictures of me lately because the card in our camera broke. They have a new one now, and I have been promised a full photo shoot when my new sweater comes in the mail.

And where is that new sweater anyway? Mommy ordered it a week and a half ago! I want, I want! Maybe it will come tomorrow. I'll keep my paws crossed.

We went to the park the other day to practice my walking. The vets said I'm supposed to practice walking slowly uphill to help strengthen my back legs. Well, I'm not really sure how to walk slowly. As you can see in the video, I'm kind of running pretty fast. Daddy was doing his best to hold me back, but it really doesn't matter. I just bunny hop my legs along and pull like a sled dog. Even if I'm not getting anywhere, I like to get there fast!

Bye for now!

Look What I Learned!

Back in October I showed you a picture of my smart sissy Clover sitting in front of our wall heater. She looooves it. She will sit in front of it for hours, just waiting for it to come on.

All winter I have been very afraid of it. I don't even like to walk by it when it's on. After all, it makes very scary growling noises. But guess what! I figured out that if you sit in front of it, you get very very warm, bordering on HOT!

Look! I learned to be brave and walk over to it all by myself! Now I like to sit in front of it until my furs are nice and hot.

The other day Mommy set up my bed on the hallway side of the heater, and Clover sat on the living room side. (Our heater goes through the wall.) It was awesome! Maybe someday we’ll learn to sit in front of it right next to each other.

Bye for now!

Pee Ess: I convinced Mommy to order me a new fuzzy sweater. It should arrive any day now, and when it does, I'll model it for you.

Sleepy Sunday

This morning I got to sleep in while Mommy went out and did non-dog things. Then this afternoon we went for a nice long walk in my chariot. We strolled for so long that I actually got tired of standing up, so I sat down. That's the nice thing about a stroller/chariot: you can sit or stand or whatever!

Later in the afternoon was the sleepiest part of my day. I have been napping on the couch on Mommy's lap ALL AFTERNOON!!! At one point Mommy put me on the floor so she could go get a drink. She took her body heat with her when she went to the kitchen, so I walked over to the wall heater, which I had always been afraid of before, and laid down right in front of it. And ooh, it's so warm! Then it was back to blankie time:

Last night my parents went over to cousin Jasper and cousin Sivan's house. Here is a picture of Jasper in "his" chair. It's supposed to belong to his human bro, but we all know that Jasper gets what Jasper wants!

Pee Ess: I know I'm a little behind the times, but wasn't that Puppy Bowl the absolute greatest?! We had never seen it before, and we had no idea that it would be three whole hours long. Very impressive!

I Hit the Mother Lode!!!

I had a busy weekend. We ran errands (I love errands), which I am finally allowed to go on again. And then on Sunday we went for a bike ride out to the baylands. We stopped for a while and I was allowed to get out of my basket to practice walking around a bit. I did well, don't you think?

Guess what I found while I was walking around. Grass! Huge grass that was as high as an elephant's eye. Or a chihuahua's eye. Or something like that. It was like a smorgasbord!

I haven't gotten to eat grass in soooooooo long because I've been on "crate rest." Now that I can go outside again I am thrilled to see that the grass is still out there, waiting for me to eat it!

Bye for now!

I'm Still Here...

...and I'm still CUTE!!!

Here is a picture to prove it:

Mommy started a new job last week, so she has been making excuses about why she can't help me type my blog. I tried to do it myself, but all I got was this:

I don't know what that means. Maybe I'm speaking in tongues! But anyway, I'll try to make Mommy help me out this weekend.

Bye for now!
