A New Toy!

Hi Furiends!  Look what Mommy got for me:

Hmmm, what's this?  Is this for me?  Is it a new toy?  It smells like it's for me.

I am preparing to pounce on it.

And now I will chew on its tail for a little while.  I think I like it!

Hi Furiends!

Last week I went on a big road trip with my parents.  We went all the way down to Beverly Hills and then all the way up to Lake Tahoe.  It was a long drive, but we had fun and saw lots of pretty stuff.  I'm pretty good at sleeping in the car anyway, so I didn't mind that much.

While we were in LA, we got to go out to dinner at a famous hot dog restaurant called Pinks.  They have veggie dogs, so my parents were happy.  And I was too, because I got to taste some of their hot dogs!!!

After dinner we walked across the street to check out a place called the "Zoom Room," which we thought might be a doggy daycare.  It turns out it's a doggy party venue and they had just finished a party and they had extra party favor bags and they gave me one because I'm so cuuuuuuute!!!!!!!  Here's what was in my bag:

While Daddy was in his class all day (that's why we were there), Mommy and I hung out in our room and on our balcony.  I caught some southern California rays and they were sooooo warm and sunshiny!

The next day while we were driving around, we saw this funny sign about STDs.  I don't know what STDs are...maybe Soooper Terrific Doggies???  Yes, I think so.

After Beverly Hills, we drove all the way up to Lake Tahoe.  We saw lots of pretty stuff on the way, but mostly I slept.  So here's a picture of me and Mommy once we got to the campground in Lake Tahoe.  It was pretty cold and windy there in the evenings--very different from Beverly Hills!

I think I would like to go back down south, please.  It was super fun!!!

Beverly Hills Chihuahua

Hello Furiends!

I am pretending to be a rich and famous chihuahua this weekend. Daddy is taking a class in Beverly Hills and while he is studying, I am checking out the view from our hotel balcony.

What do you think: do I look like a movie star yet?

Beach Day!!! (and Pawlympics Excitement)

Hello Furiends!

I had a very nice beach day with my friend Maggie that I want to tell you about.  We met for lunch at this place that has a very nice outdoor seating area for doggies and their peoples.  There were lots of other dogs there sitting on the ground.  Um, yes, on the ground.  What is up with that?  Maggie and I do not sit on the ground.  We sit on laps!

We both got to share a little bit of the lunches our parents were having.  I liked the artichoke hearts; Maggie wasn't so sure.  I also had some beans, of course.

After lunch, we went to the beeeeeach!!!  We got to run run run in the sand with our Daddies!

Somehow I got my nose all covered in sand.  Oops!  It's okay.  Mommy cleaned it off for me.

Oh, wait.  I think I know how I got sand all over my nose.  It was from all my frisbee chasing!  Look at me goooooo!!!

On a related note, I have decided to pawticipate in the Blogville Olympics 2012!  Any dog or cat can participate.  If you want to participate, you should hurry because you have to send in your picture soon.
I have decided that I will pawticipate in two events.  I'm going to do the Frisbee/Discus (hosted by Pip) and Roaching and Rolling (hosted by Ruby and Penny).

I will use the pictures from my beach day for the frisbee event, and the pictures from when I rolled in something delicious for the roaching/rolling event.  I am excited to see everyone's pictures once the events start.  Hooray for the Pawlympics!!!

Happy Fourth of July!!!

Happy Fourth of July, Everybuddy!!!

Our celebration was all packed into two hours starting at 8:00pm because we were waiting for Daddy to get home from work before we started having fun.  When he got home, we had a barbeque with organic corn and veggie dogs!!!  I found the corn husks on the ground and I tried to taste them a little bit, but Mommy said those were not for eating--I'm not sure why.

I got to eat a little bit of corn and hot dog and it was all SO YUMMY!!!  You might say that I am a little bit spoiled, I guess...

After dinner, Mommy and Daddy bicycled out to a place where they could see fireworks.  I stayed home because they thought it would be a little too loud for me.  I'm not scared of fireworks, but I was happy to stay home anyway.

You all remember my greenbean adventure, right?  Well, Mommy made a scrapbook page about it!  Look!
She used supplies from Shabby Princess, Anna Aspnes, Lynn Grieveson, Gina Cabrera, and Katie Pertiet this, this, and this.

I Love Froooooot!!!

Hello everybuddy!

Today I will tell you all about my recent fruit adventures.  I got to try HONEYDEW melon for the first time.  Oh wow is it good!  Daddy cut off the very end of the big giant fruit and gave it to me.  He thought maybe I would just lick it a bunch, but I actually developed a pretty effective method for digging out some of the frooooty goodness.  I used my tongue to get the juice...

...and my sharp little teeth to get the fruit.  See what it looked like when I was done!

Do you remember my greenbean adventure?  Well, I had a TOMATO adventure the other day!  I really really wanted these tomatoes soooo bad, but nobody would help me get them.  Mommy kept saying the were too green.  Hey, I don't care what color they are.  All I know is they smelled goooood!  (If you turn the volume way up, you might be able to hear me gruffing and whining in the video.)

And then last night I got to share Mommy's late night snack!  She had peaches and soymilk.  I LOVE PEACHES AND SOYMILK!!!  I got to have a little piece of yummy peach all soaked in soymilk, which is my favorite liquid ever, even though it gives me gas.

I hope your days are filled with froooty adventures!
