handsome dog

Check me out, I am one handsome pooch! Like Uncle Bob would say while looking in the mirror, "Damn I'm good looking!" Suppose I can attract some beautiful ladies?

I can do it

Check this out. A dock that is out of the water. It is pretty close to the Lake. Do you think I can jump into the Lake from here? Nope to far but I made a good try at it..

Should I go in?

Look here is that culvert again. You think I should go in? Well I fooled you I went all the way through when Mom wasn't looking. She just saw me come out the other side. You better keep a better eye on me and your hand on the camera.

We have a very nasty day today.. There is tornado warnings out for Denton County so I don't think we will be going to the Lake today. Maybe tomorrow will be a better day...

King Gus

Check me out!! I am king of the forest. I can see a long ways up here on this fallen tree. We had such beautiful weather yesterday for out outing at the Lake. It is really hard to believe that it is Winter time.
I don't know if we will make it to the Lake in the next couple of days. The lake mobile is in the shop and I don't know if Mom will let me ride in the bug. She is afraid I might shed but maybe with some coaxing I will be able to talking her into it.

What happened?

I really don't know what happened to the beautiful orange flippy that MeMaw gave me. I guess it wasn't tested to see if it was "Gus Proof" Thanks MeMaw for the brief excitement. I love you!!!

My Christmas Present

Well here it is, my Christmas present. I sure hope MeMaw didn't pay to much for it since it didn't last very long. It sure was fun while it lasted though. Maybe they will let me tear the other one up today.

Merry Christmas

Check this out it is our Christmas tree before we opened all the presents. I did reframed from doing what dogs do on trees. The alpha's where really proud of me. You will not believe what I got for Christmas from MeMaw but you will have to wait until tomorrow to see. Your going to love it!!

Mmmm Rib Bone

Look what I got today. Mom and Sis went to the grocery store and brought back a rib roast. Can you tell I am one Happy Dog. I am definitely in heaven now. This bone is a lot better than those I find at the Lake..

Supper Time Stare

Well It is 5:00 o'clock, I eat at 6:00 if I sit here and stare at Mom maybe she will feed me. I have lots of patience. Next I will go and sit right in front of her and start nudging her and maybe she will take the hint!! If that doesn't work I start my little yip yip noise.. Well it is 5:45 and Dad caved!! he he I am one smart puppy....

Check out my stick!

Hey look at this stick I found at the Lake. It was quite large but I sure liked playing with it. Mom even had a hard time tossing it for me. Maybe next time we go to the Lake I can even find a bigger stick just to show those sissy dogs up.

Good Luck Heidi!!

This post is dedicated to my Finnish friend Heidi who is going back to Finland tomorrow to start a new job and to be with her family. She will be greatly missed. I am sure glad that she took the time this week to come out to the house and meet me . I really loved chewing on her ears and giving her doggy kisses. My family and I wish her all the best and we look forward to seeing her again when she comes back to Texas. This isn't a good-bye, it is we will see you soon.. We love you!

Look at the big log I found

While at the Lake on Sunday I found this really cool log. I tried to get up on it but it took me a while to figure it out. I enjoyed standing with my feet on it and checking everything out. I sure hope mom will let me go check that log out again next week..

Shmed the cat

As you can see there is another family member that you have not been introduced to, it's Shmed she is a Maine Coon. She was here when I arrived and she stays in the Alpha's bedroom most of the time since I love to chase her. Sometimes though she lets me lick on her. When I do this she makes a purring noise. But when she gets tired of me she swats at me with those nasty claws of hers. This is a picture of her outside sitting on the window sill. She has gone out for the night and she likes to peek into the kitchen window to see what is going on in the house. Of course if I spot her the chase is on until she jumps over the fence.

Pathetic Blue Heeler

I just wanted you to see where I have to stay when the cats go outside and the sugar gliders come out to play. Brother Toph says I look pathetic. I am sad while it my house but I always get a cookie to go in there so it isn't so bad. After the squirrels go to bed I get to stay out all night and sleep by the bed close to the alpha's so it really isn't so bad.. I again get to return to the "Happy Dog" state...

A new Flippy

While at the Lake yesterday I found myself a new flippy. Of course I forgot all about my old flippy when I found a new one with the strap in tacked. Well as you can see the new flippy didn't hold up to the blue heeler's shaking. Mom threw my new flippy in the garbage can when she thought I wasn't looking. Huh, little does she know..

Beautiful Day at the Lake

We had a beautiful day in Texas today. Mom said it got to almost 80 degrees. The Lake was just beautiful and the water really wasn't cold at all. I enjoyed fetching the stick for Mom. I even swam today. That was a first for me. It was awesome I didn't know I could do that.

Blue Heeler Waiting

Hey look at me. I can do tricks for cookies. I know how to sit, lay down, roll over and stand. I do have one problem though that when there is a cookie in the mix, I do all my tricks in a row knowing the that wonderful cookie is coming. Mom also taught me how to push the button on Sis's Yoshi toy that she got from McDonalds. It only took me about 3 turns to perfect that skill. I have not yet figured out how big brother Toph has deemed me as "Short Bus."

Look at these hiding places

Look what I found at the Lake. I didn't know there could be such a neat place to wonder around in. I found lots of trees for well, you know what trees are for!! I also found lots of places to hide. Mom calls me a jungle dog. I am not sure what that means but it sure is fun.

New Flippy

I just thought you would want to see the perfectly good flippy that I found Sunday at the lake. I shook it to hard though and the strap flew off in no time. I guess they don't make flippies like they used to. I sure had fun with it while I was there whether it had a strap or not. It still shook the same..

Lake Mobile

I told you about the Lake Mobile yesterday so I just wanted you to see it. As you can see it is just an old red truck but it is my Lake Mobile. Whenever I get up on Sunday morning and Mom has showered and heads to the garage to get her Lake shoes and my leash I know what is on the agenda. We are off to the Lake. Ya, all I can think of is that nice little old man in the booth handing me a cookie and then I'm off the leash to run and run.

Off to the Lake

It was cold this AM but we went to the lake anyway. Mom was cold but I didn't mind at all. Mom says I have a warm jacket but it has holes in it where my ears stick out. I don't believe her.. The wind was cool but it wasn't to bad when the sun peaked out. I enjoyed my leash free time running all over the park. I ran down by the Lake and you will never believe what I found. You guessed it someone left a perfectly good flippy out there. I really enjoyed shaking it and carrying it everywhere I went. I left it in the Lake Mobile for our next trip.

Water Dog

Mom, Mom look I see a bird out there in the water. Can I have him? I would run out there but the water looks pretty deep. Maybe if he gets a little closer where the water isn't quite so deep I will herd him in!!! Until then I will just stand here in this nice cool water and watch...

Where is Dad

Here I am waiting for Dan so we can go out side and chase my ball. I am sure he will be home soon all I have to do is stand here and wait. I found that if I peak out the window I will be the first one to see Dad arrive. I get so excited when Dad gets here. I jump all over him. he he

Blue Heeler and Golf Ball

Can you believe what I found at the Lake. Mom said it was a golf ball. She said they hit this ball with some kind of club. Do you believe that one of those humans would hit a perfectly good toy with a club? It is much more fun to chase it around and refuse to give it back to the Alpha's once I get it. As you can see I protect my ball from all predators and I definitely don't let it out of my site.

Fun at the Lake

Look, look at how much fun it is at the Lake!! I get to run and run. I love to run to Mom as fast as I can but I haven't quite figured out that stopping thing. I flat laid Mom out the last time. Maybe sometime I will get a handle on the brake thing but I sure enjoy the running...

New Tricks

While at the Lake we found this really cool dock that was about 5 foot high and out of the water. I learned how to jump up on it in no time. I could jump up, run up the ramp, run down the ramp and jump off. Man was that exciting. I fell on my rear a few times but I soon had everything in complete control. Don't you think I look really handsome standing up their? My mom's friend would say "chiflado." (Proud) I sure hope that we can go back there soon..

Another Cold Day in Texas

Well the weather in Texas has again spoiled my plans of playing at the Lake. It is 34 degrees this AM with the wind blowing. Almost all of the leaves have turned brown and fallen off the trees so it looks like this "dag" will be spending the day in the house. As you can see I dream of being here at the lake cooling my feet. Today I think my poor feet would be almost frozen. Maybe next week the weird Texas weather will turn Spring like. I can only hope.....
