Rudolph and Santa came!

Yesterday Rudolph and Santa came! I thought I heard them late at night when my people were sleeping, so I closed my eyes and did not bark. I am Good Dog.

It must have been them because then in the morning there were special things for me!

My littlest person helped me find my special presents.

There was Beef Rib, Elk Antler, and raw-hide-candy-cane. Also there was a new tag for my collar that says my name in people writing. It's very special.

The cats helped.

They got presents from Rudolph and Santa too!

The people had many presents, although most of them were boring. Books and clothes and people-games. They also got these funny chairs. I'm not sure that they're meant for dogs...

There was good food all day, but no turkey. My people tells me that the turkey comes tonight. I'm very excited.

Yesterday I also got a wonderful walk at Mount Doug Forest. I played in the mud and ran over the rocks, and we climbed high into the mist.

I thought maybe I saw Rudolph in the sky, so I told him thank-you for the wonderful things, and for having my family at home with me. I love my people most of all.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Water dogs

Today I met these creatures. Momma C called them Water Dogs. Momma B named them Seals.

At first they were very scary. I hid behind my people. But I really wanted to meet these water dogs.

They were very big.

This one liked to hang out upsidedown.

They liked fish just like me, so they must not be too strange.

I also played with my littlest person.

Nature is making Cold. Santa and Rudolph are coming soon. I am trying very hard to be Good Dog.

Not really "bad dog"

Momma C went to "meeting". She put me in my bed. She told me "stay".

But the sun was so warm... Rudolph, do you really blame me? Am I truly "bad dog"?

Good afternoon

Good: Another visit with Simon!

Not as good: Ride in a truck in a very small space with three other dog-friends. I like them. They're all my friends. But there was not much space for all of us. Plus Simon was very whiny-loud-whiny.

Good: Playing outside in a new place with grass and bushes and rocks! And Simon!

Not as good: Being attached to a tree with Leash while my person and Trainer played with Simon and a fancy big-black-aggressive-eye-thing. What does "filming video" mean?

Good: Did I mention that I got to play with Simon?

Dear Rudolph

Dear Rudolph,

My littlest person tells me that the thing called Christmas is coming again. This means that soon you will be visiting our house with your person, who is large and round and makes hohoho noises.

I need to tell you that I have been a Good Dog. I have worked hard for Momma B to learn new things. At the placed called Work, I stay in my bed when Momma C asks and I almost never bark any more.

I did make a mistake and ate some cat poo. I try not to do that anymore, even though it is very tasty. I am also trying not to chase Cats, even though they move very fast.

This year I would like a bone. I would also like a new toy that makes squeak noises when I bite on it. And I would like for my family to be home so we can do fun things together.

If I haven't been a very good dog, at least I have been a little bit of a good dog. So maybe you could bring a little bone?

Training Day

My person says this: The first Saturday of every month is Training Day.

I'm not sure what this means except that I usually get to see Simon.

Today Bean was there too.

He got to go first. Here is Bean training with his person.

Simon and I waited for our turns.

Next it was me. There are no pictures of me because Momma B was too busy putting food in my mouth to hold big-black-aggressive-eye.

Then it was Simon's turn.

And then, finally, the best part of all!
