A Garden Morning

Hello Everybuddy,

I had a super fun time in my garden yesterday morning.  I found where the greenbeans were hiding!

I decided to pick a few beans for a little snack.

Mommy thought I had had enough, but I pretended not to hear her. Who, me?!

Basket Ride Across a New Bridge

Hi Furiends!

Today a new bridge opened on a bike trail we really like.  With the new bridge, the trail extends all the way to the next town.  We went to the bridge dedication/opening ceremony.  We rode all the way from our house.  I sat in my basket and smelled all the yummy fresh air smells.  When we got there, we had to stop and walk because there were soooo many people and bikes and strollers everywhere.  And there were balloons!

Then we got to go across the bridge for the very first time.  Wheeee!!!

At the top of the bridge we took another picture.  There is a nice view from the top of the mountains and the clouds and the sky.  And also the freeway, but that part of the view isn't so nice, I guess.

What a fun outing!  Lots and lots of people said how cute I was, and a few people petted me, and a bunch of people asked if they could take my picture.  Of course you can!  I guess I am famous!  Or maybe I am just very cute.  Either way is fine with me.

My Busy Summer Schedule

Hello Everybuddy!

Oh, gosh, I am so behind because I have been so busy!  Summer sure is great!  Let me tell you all about what I have been up to lately.

I had a playdate with my friend Maggie the week before last.  It was fun!  We met in her backyard and tried to play together, even though it was a veeeeery hot day.  We spent a lot of the time sitting in the shade on the patio.  I kept trying to get inside where I thought it would be cooler.  That's why I'm sitting by the door.

Once the shade hit the lawn, we decided it would be okay to go play on the grass.  We did a little bit of chase, but mostly we ambled.  Chihuahuas are very good at ambling.

Then on Monday, Mommy went to a special doggy store and got me a special treat!  It was a big butterfly cookie!
It was a little bit hard to eat at first because it was so big and hard.  But I worked at it and eventually I broke it into smaller pieces and I ate it all!

Then last week we did a big camping adventure.  It was so much fun!  I love camping!  We went to a beautiful place in the forest near the beach.  It's the best of everything!  It was a little bit chilly at night, but Mommy and Daddy do a good job of bundling me up when it gets cold.

The next day we went to the beach.  It is a special beach that has purple sand!  It was very windy, but we still had lots of fun.  I got to chew some sticks and run in the sand and have a picnic, too.

I hope you are having as nice a month as I am having!

In the Big City

Hi Furiends,

As promised, I will now tell you all about my adventure in the Big City.  It was not a very big adventure, but it was still fun because I got to go to a place I had never been before.  Mommy and Daddy took me out to lunch at a restaurant in San Francisco where they have outside tables for people with doggies.  I was not allowed to walk very much on the sidewalk because it was busy and dirty and Mommy was afraid I would get stepped on or step in something yucky.  There were lots of dogs walking by, and they got to walk on the ground, but I guess they are city dogs, and I am not.  Besides, it is much nicer to be carried and sit on someone's lap than it is to walk all the way down there on the ground!

Lunch was delicious!  I got to have some beans from Daddy's plate and some carrots from Mommy's salad!

We ate lunch with some of Mommy and Daddy's friends who I had never met before.  They said I was soooooo cute!  One of them was overcome with an urge to hold me.  Hmmm...I am sometimes nervous about being held by strangers.  But I agreed, because I could see that she was very excited about it, and I only grrred at her once!

While we were there, I learned how to pee and poop like a city dog.  I peed in the tiny square of dirt that a tree was planted in on the sidewalk, and I pooped right in the middle of the sidewalk in front of a man pushing a baby stroller.  Oopsie!  Mommy said sorry, and he just laughed and said, it's okay.  I am sorry that we do not have pictures of this.

After lunch, we were supposed to go to the park, but we ran out of time, so that adventure will have to wait for another day.
