Hi Furiends,

I have really been enjoying the sunshine lately.  I like to go outside in the backyard in the afternoons and sunbathe a little bit.  Mommy calls it "sunbaking" because I like to get really hot.  The poppies are blooming right now, and after I relax a little bit, Mommy likes to take my picture with them.

Today I did a little sunbathing at my Grandma and Grandpa's house.  I like to sunbathe anywhere!

Bye for now,

A Desert Trek

Hi Furiends!

Last weekend we went on a desert trek day trip.  Just cuz.  It was a long drive, but I didn't mind because mostly I just like to be with my Mommy and Daddy no matter what they are doing.

We found a tiny little desert park with lots of joshua trees.  The nature trail was a little narrow and Mommy was worried about rattlesnakes, so I got carried.  I like to dangle my feets when Daddy carries me like this.

In the places where the path was wide, I got to walk.  Daddy said I was "walking in the sands of my ancestors" on account of I am a chihuahua and I guess we come from the desert.  Hhmm...

Mommy said I am a good little road-tripper.  I guess that means I like to sit quietly in my chair and watch the world go by.  It was a pretty fun day, all in all.

Bye for now,

A Poppy-ful Birthday Hike

Hi Everybuddy!

Yesterday was my 8th birthday!  Can you believe that I am 8 years old now?  People always think I'm still a puppy.  The other day at the pet food store, the treat lady asked how old I was.  Whey Mommy said, "almost eight," the nice treat lady said, "months?"  Mommy laughed and said, "no, years!"  The treat lady was very surprised to know that I am a...ahem...senior dog now.  Mommy and Daddy said they can hardly believe it themselves sometimes.

To celebrate my big day, we went for a little walk in a beautiful place with lots and lots of POPPIES!  They are Mommy's favorite flower, which is why I am named after them.  There were tons of them right at the entrance gate to the park:

Once we started walking, Mommy saw some more spots of orange on top of a hill and said we had to go up there.  So we did.  It was so warm and sunny and I was panting and panting, but I was a very good hiker and walked to the top.  (It really wasn't very far because Mommy's knee is a little bit injured right now.)

When we got to the top, sure enough, there were lots more poppies up there!  And a great view, too!

I am smiling my best smile in this picture because it was such a wonderful day and I am so happy that I have gotten to live eight of the bestest years anyone has ever lived!
