Can you see me?

I was out in the woods checking things out. Mom thought it was something how I just kind of blend into the background. So can you see me? I am sure that when Spring comes and all the background turns green it will be much easier to see me. I had fun checking out this log and all the other ones in the woods. Of course I had to mark them. he he

Check out the log

Look at me I am running and having all kinds of fun. Mom caught me just as I was ready to jump this log. She was trying to catch me in the act but I was just to fast for her and her camera. I sure had a lot of fun on this beautiful day. I am hoping that this weekend is just as nice so I can have this much fun again...

Aunt Carrie's neighbor

Aunt Carrie's neighbors dog Myrna had a unpleasant surprise when she woke the other morning. She had no where to do her business. She had to wake her Alpha's to get them to shovel a path. As you can see the Alpha's did a good job and Myrna was a very happy pooch. It sounds like they are still getting more snow so poor Myrna may have to wake Dad again!!!

Standing on a log

Although it was really windy yesterday I didn't have any problems standing on this log. From up here I could see quite a ways. Mom tried to get a picture of me jumping over the log but I was just to fast for her. Today I think we are going to one of those Tot Lots. It looks really nice out, the sun is shining and there are no clouds but the wind is blowing again. Dad thinks the Lake might be a bit cold with the wind blowing off the Lake. Either way it doesn't matter to me. I just like riding in the Lake mobile and then investigating whatever when we get to our destination.

Windy at the Lake

It was very windy at the Lake today. As you can see it was hard just standing on the picnic table. It kept blowing my ears back. I really didn't seem to mind though. I still ran around sniffing everything in site. I think I found more bones than Dad found money.
You see him there in the background digging in the dirt. I think he said all he found today was pennies and a few dimes. Not a very profitable day for dirt digging but very profitable for a dog searching for bones... :0)

Puppy Gus and Shmed

Mom found another old picture of me with that furry cat Shmed. As you can see I wasn't much bigger than her. I enjoyed terrorizing her even at that age. I still enjoy chasing her. I haven't figured out why she runs. She knows that when she runs I am going to chase her. As of late she has been sitting in the kitchen window when I go out in the morning. The window is just high enough that I can't reach her. Maybe she is learning....

Me and Lola as pups

Mom was going through some old pictures and I think she is trying to embarrass me. You know how moms are. Well this is me when I was a wee lad. I have to admit I was kind of an ugly pooch not really sure what mom saw in me but I sure am glad I came home with them..

She wanted to compare Lola Pearl and me. Aren't we a cute couple??

This is another picture of my Canadian friend Lola Pearl. She is enjoying her Winter playing in the snow I really wish I could be there with her. I think we would have great fun playing together.

What is down there

Hey Mom what is down there? It is a long ways down. I am not sure if I can jump way down there and see. I will try though.
Wow it is Mom, what are you doing hiding on me? I found you..

What is this

I can not really figure out what I have found here. It sure has a different smell to it. Maybe if I stick my nose in here deep enough I can figure it out. I know I look kind of funny but I really want to know what is down there. The sad thing is I never really did figure it out. It wasn't for a lack of trying...

Having fun at the lake

Yesterday was such a beautiful day that I just couldn't resist running down to the dock and running back up. I thought about going for a swim but I thought better of it. I was warm but I think more than my legs getting wet would be just to much for today. Maybe in a few weeks when the Lake starts to warm up. Come on Summer I want to go swimming....

Beautiful Day at the Lake

Look we went to the Lake. It was a beautiful day and the Lake is up. I enjoyed standing here just checking out the water. Mom thought it was too cold for me to be in there but what does she know she isn't a blue heeler. I LIKE the Water. We had lots of sunshine so we stayed for quite a while. I got to check out lots of places including playing in the water and checking out trees. he he

Still dreaming

I am still dreaming of Summer. It is another cold day in Texas. In was 19 degrees this AM when Mom went to work. She had to scrape the frost off the VW windows.
Dad had the day off for his Birthday tomorrow but it was cold. He did go to a Tot Lot by his work around noon but he didn't take me. I was quite disappointed but tomorrow is another day. Too bad Mom has to work though. I can always hope for Sunday. Maybe it will warm up so we can stay for quite awhile. But until then I will continue to show you what I am dreaming about..

Remembering a beautiful day

I was just thinking of a warm and beautiful day. The weather here has been really cold and windy lately but this picture reminds me of how warm it was this Summer. I sure hope Spring is right around the corner so I can have a fun time at the lake again. I will be able to chase the stick into the water and go swimming. Won't that be great?

Picture of the Lake

It was kind of a dreary day on Saturday when we went to the Lake but Mom took some pictures anyway. I bet when Spring comes it will be very beautiful. You can kind of see the lake through the trees. Did I remember to tell you that I like trees!!
The birds were all making lots of noise even though it was cold out there. I guess those birds don't know that it is cold.. Of course when we got close to the they all shut up.. Maybe they were hiding from me.

4 wheeler path

Hey look at all the trees down this path. Dad took mom and I to the park before we went to the Pet Store. He said it was to run some of the energy out of me. I don't think it worked to well. We sure found a beautiful path to play on though. I enjoyed marking all the trees that I got close to. I am not sure Mom was that impressed though.
It appeared to be a 4 wheeler path. I am sure Grandpa Bum would love riding his 4 wheeler down this path. It came right out on the beach.

Eurika Park

This is a picture of Eurika Park where we went on Sunday. It had a walking path that was measured off in 1/8th miles. Mom and I went by 12 of those markers. Mom said it was 1 mile and 1/2. It seemed like we walked for ever. Mom said that I wore off some of my long toe nails.
Dad went looking for stuff in the Tot lot again. He said he found a couple of Chucky Cheese tokens. I don't think those are worth a lot but Dad had a lot of fun digging..

Look at my new bone

I just thought you might enjoy seeing the new bone I got when I went to Pet Smart yesterday. It is a really tasty bone and it whitens my teeth really well. I saw that there was 3 more of these tasty bones in that bag so I had better get busy and finish this one before the others go bad.
We went for a long walk today at a new park today but I will tell you about that tomorrow....

I went to the PetSmart, Ya

Look at me I got to go to PetSmart today. Home of Smart pets like me. I saw lots of other dogs both big and small. I think I scared a little Bejon. I barked at him and he scrambled to the end of his leash. I am not sure why everyone turned and looked when I barked. I guess I have one of those deep voices that carry through the entire store. I also got to see cats behind glass. I kind of felt sorry for those poor kitties. The sign said SPCA so I guess they were waiting for new parents.
Mom and Dad bought me a new collar. Mom says a pretty blue one, you know blue for a handsome blue heeler like me. You should have seen all the colors they had. Mom was looking at a purple one but I don't think Dad thought that wasn't manly enough for me. They also got me some new bones. I really like raw hide bones...

I found another stick

Look what I found! While at the lake I found another one of those great sticks. I like to chase it but I also like to just lay and chew on it. Mom tries to take it away from me but I just run with it. I will let her know when I am done chewing on it..
Tomorrow is Saturday and I have visions of going to the lake and finding another one of these!!!

Pictures from the Lake

Just thought I would show you another picture of the Lake. As you can see it is very beautiful here. The Lake is on the rise since we have been having rain lately. Of course yesterday it was sunny and 70 degrees and now today it is 41 degrees and the wind is blowing making it feel really cold for Texas.
I am hoping that this weekend it will be back up in the 70's and we can go to the Lake again..

Mom and Dad I am ready

Hey Mom and Dad I think I have had enough. Maybe if I wait here by the truck they will get the hint that I am tired and ready to go! Mom threw the stick for me so I made sure that I brought those to the truck too. Maybe they will let me take them home with me to play with in the back yard!
Dad didn't get the hint to quickly and he left my best sticks right there by the truck. I sure hope some other dog doesn't find them before I get back there.

Just hanging out

We are having a lot of fun at the Lake. Dad is doing his digging in the dirt think and Mom and I have been walking the beach. I decided that I needed a little rest before we moved on. I found this really nice tree to just lay under and veg. Have I told you lately how much I really love the lake? As you can see I have my stick close by ready for another round of fetch.

Picture of the lake

We had a beautiful day at the Lake on Sunday and I thought you might like to see it. The sun was shinning and we had about 60 degree weather. The ducks were swimming and there even was some boats out. Dad didn't have much luck metal detecting but Mom and I had lots of fun with a stick. I think that maybe even Mom was tired by the end of our time there.

Tot Lot

We went to a place that Dad calls a "Tot Lot" yesterday. They had swings and slides and other climbing things. I enjoyed laying under the slide shaking the frisbee I found at the park. Dad was not to impressed though when I would sling all the wood chips at him. By the time it was time to go I had that "mini" frisbee all tore up into pieces.
Dad would like to go back there again someday when it isn't quite so cold. 40 degrees with a strong wind was not Mom's idea of great park going weather. I really didn't see any problem with it. I have a nice warm coat..

Canadian Friends

Look, there are other blue heelers like me that play in the snow. This is Lola Pearl and Mickey they live in Canada. In Canada they actually have snow that lasts for awhile. It looks so beautiful there. Lola is a blue heeler puppy that Mom's friend rescued. As you can see she also has a lot of energy like me. I sure wish that place called Canada was closer so I could go visit her. Maybe we could play in the snow together. Thanks Lola for sending me this great picture. Keep those pictures coming so we can see Lola growing up.

Snow in Texas

Look we got snow in Texas again. It sure was pretty this Am. Of course now it is afternoon and all the snow has gone away. That is to be expected in Texas.
Mom went to work but she said it was quite the ride. They shut the highway down to for 45 minutes and Mom just sat there. They decided they needed to sand the bridge. She finally arrived about an hour later than normal..

Snow in Texas

Look, you can't see it very well but it snowed today. When Mom came home it was like a blizzard out there. I got it all over me. I didn't roll in it I guess I really wasn't sure what it was.
It has stopped now but it sure was pretty while it lasted. We can hope for more during the night and maybe Mom and Dad can stay home and play in it with me tomorrow...
