Water triangles

Today at Dallas Road Beach there were many, many people. Most of them were watching these funny things out on the water.

I watched the water-triangles too.

Up top I played in the long, tickly grass.

Whee, fun! But hot too! Nature's sun made my fur very toasty.

Weave pole game

The game we've been playing this week is called "weave pole entrance". Momma B stands in all different places around these two poles and gets me to stand beside her. Then she tells me to go through the poles.

When I'm on one side of Momma B, I need to go straight through the poles. When I'm on the other side, I need to circle around and come back through towards Momma B. I am very smart so I have this all figured out.

When I get it right, which is almost always, Momma B either says "yes" or makes a click noise with that funny thing that she holds in her hand. Then she puts something yummy in my mouth like chicken or beef or cheese.

If I make a mistake, Momma B says "oh oh", and then I need to try again. But I hardly ever make mistakes anymore, no matter where we start from!

I like this game. When the poles come out onto the grass I start circling around them trying to get Momma B's attention. I want her to know that I'm ready to play!

Do you have any games you like to play?

Big rain cloud, bright sun

Big rain cloud.
Under a maple tree. Hiding. Protected.
Damp. Many smells.
Tree gathers rain. Large drops on our heads.

Rain stops. Cloud passes. Bright sun.
Wandering walk, new places.

Silly fun games with my people

Tonight was very much fun.

I went to the park with my people. At the park were many dogs and many little people. There were lots of big people too. Everyone was playing and making happy noises and having fun.

Back at home, Momma B had some funny poles which I had to walk through in the right way. When I did this she put chicken in my mouth. I liked this game a lot.

But the best part of all the evening was playing outside with Momma C.

Momma C got very silly with me. I like playing this game with her.

Whee, fun!

Run chase fun

Kingston and frisbee. Chase run much fun.
Two big outings in one day. Lucky me!

Yellow and blue

My nose can do many things that my person's nose can't. This is fact.

My person tells me that her eyes do things that mine don't. She tells me that she sees colours that I cannot. I don't quite understand this. But there are some colours that we both see. These colours are yellow and blue.

Today the world was very colourful for both of us. Lots of yellow and lots of blue, and wonderful sunshine too.

The little flying buzz-buzz creatures like the yellow flowers.

Momma B, thank you for bringing me to this bright and colourful place!

Hot and no shade

Today was Mt. Doug day.

Down in the forest the air was wonderful. It was warm, with a breeze that brought smells from all over.

Up on top of the mountain Nature was making a very hot sun and no shade.

But that's okay. I still like going up. My littlest person likes going up best too. We both like to climb.

At the top the people did something called "picnic". I had my own bowl for water and Momma B shared bits of meat from the sandwich.

Now the people are saying the word "vet". I hope this doesn't mean what I think it means...

Birthday dog

I am Birthday Dog!

Actually I'm not sure what this means, but for some reason I got to eat ice cream before dinner. Also the people gave me a new toy. Isn't it wonderful? It squeaks!

Can it be Birthday again tomorrow?


The people say I am three today.

What does this mean? Three of what?

I checked. I have four paws, one nose and one tail. Nothing has changed. So what is this "three"?

Wetness, a new friend and tasty desserts

Today was wet.

We went to a place with people and dogs. I looked through all the dogs for Raven, but she wasn't there.

So I made a new friend. His name was Sidney.

Tonight the people had a very tasty dinner. First there was salmon. After the salmon there was ice cream. The people had big scoops.

What about for me?

Then Momma C put something on the ground. There was a little bit of the wonderful ice cream in the bottom, and more all over the sides.

Is this really for me? Please-please-please don't be joking!

I can take it?!? Really??!??

Yum yum yum yum yum yum yum...

Yum yum yum yum yum...


Yum yum yum yum yum yum yum yum...

Oh thank-you Momma C!
