Our Walk Tonight

We got to go out in the country and walk on the Jane Addams trail again tonight. I love all the sights and sounds but not the car ride. I don't remember ever seeing cows up close before, have you? cowI sure wanted to jump out of the car and "herd" them or whatever we're supposed to do. car ride
Hey, where are our eyes?? I don't see my eyes OR the cow's eyes. Too weird.

There's No Place Like Home

It's so good to have them back. This is us playing in the back yard last night.

Where's Waldo?

Hey everyone,
You probably think I dropped off the face of the earth but I'm back! My folks took a vacation to Colorado and took me to a dog hotel. Nine whole nights without my king-sized bed or good treats to eat or my yard to play in. Mom thought I looked good, though, and was sure happy to pick me up early even though they had to pay dearly for it. Extra playtime and early pickup added to a pretty hefty bill.

So, out in Colorado it seems like everybody travels with their dog - well, almost everybody. Grrrrr... And the dogs are so well-behaved most of them are off-leash. Mom even saw two Wires walking down the street off-leash. That REALLY shocked her. She took lots of dog photos since they missed me so much. Here's one with Nic who DID get to go with them. This big, St. Bernard was in exactly the same spot when they went to Aspen two years ago. He's HUGE.

Ah, Now I'll Get Some Attention

Paige and her folks were here all weekend so I wasn't "top dog" in the house. I did get to go for a long, long week with Dinna and Andrew threw the ball for me for about an hour. This is me as soon as they drove out of the driveway waiting for Dad to come back to "our chair".

Guess How Much I Weigh

Today, Dad took me to the vet and I got weighed. Kanzi used to head straight for the big scale and just lay down. They always used to tell her that's not the way for a lady to act, but she did it anyway. Me, on the other hand, had many things to smell so it was a little more tricky. Anyway, I weigh 18.5 pounds. Mom thought I was probably up to about 22 since I'm pretty tall and she thinks I feel much heavier. Guess muscle weighs more than fat, right? I'm constantly running from the front yard to the back yard and chasing away squirrels, mice and crows. A Wire's job is never done.
