Mom's busy, I'm not

Hi, pups!

Mom says she has been really busy lately at that thing called Work because it is the start of the Fall Semester. Whatever.

I haven't been up to much mischief lately, so I don't have any exciting escapades to fill you in on. I'm sorry to let you down, but I'm really a pretty good boy most of the time.

See? Here's a picture of me resting nicely. No destruction in sight!

Kinda boring, isn't it?

OMDOG, I am so excited. That cutie pie, Lorenza, gave me the Oops! I Ate It AWARD!

Here are the Rules...
When accepting this award, you must blog about the food you have stolen when your humans were not watching...If you have never stolen any food, you must be a really good pup!! You can accept this yummy tray of cookies as your reward! Next add the logo of this award to your Blog (optional), then nominate at least 5 other furry blogs and let them know by leaving a message on their Blogs...

Well, I know this will be SHOCKING to some of you, but... I love to steal food when my mom's not looking. And you know what? I'm NOT sorry.

Here are some highlights of my food-stealing career:


One day Mom got a big craving for some avocado rolls, but there weren't any at the grocery store and she didn't feel like going out to eat, so she decided to make her own. So first she had to go buy all the stuff she needed - nori, wasabi, rice wine vinegar, avocados, etc. Just as she was leaving the store, the skies opened and she was soaked on her way back to the car.

When she got home she was just about to start the rice when the power went out! When it finally came back on an hour later, she started making dinner. She was starving by this time, and everything took a lot longer than she thought it would, but finally, everything was ready, so she turned around to get a plate from the cabinet and...

I leaped up and grabbed the avocado roll in my mouth and went charging off toward the living room leaving a trail of rice in my wake. OMDOG, you should have heard all the HBO WORDS my mom was using!

She had spaghetti for dinner.


Mom was home for lunch and eating some noodles. I stood by the back door like I wanted to go outside, and when she got up and headed that way to open the door for me, I dashed back toward the table and got a big bite of noodles before she knew what hit her. OMDOG, was I smart or what?!?


This one wasn't a success sadly. One morning, Mom (who is not a morning person) was eating her Cheerios when out of the corner of her eye she spotted me trying a new technique for stealing food. I'd realized that perhaps my mad dash from the scene of the crime was tipping her off, so I decided to go for a nonchalant prance instead. If she hadn't done a double take, she never would have realized that I had an entire jar of peanut butter in my mouth, I was THAT nonchalant.

I would love to hear how you other pups go about stealing food, so consider yourself tagged!

Neverending Vaycayshun!

Hi, guys and gals! Mom's vaycayshun ended almost two weeks ago, but mine is still going on. I guess if you're lucky enough to be ME, you get a neverending vaycayshun.

One thing that is getting in the way of my FUN is the WEATHER. This is what it looks like pretty much every day:
View from library, 2nd floor north

Thankfully, Jake the Weatherdog is keeping an eye on those furricane things that make Mom so anxious.

Meanwhile, I have been keeping an eye on THIS:
Beckett watches TV

Mom says it is called a teevee, and that it's a hand-me-down from my Uncle Andrew. Mom has attached some boxes and put some ears on it and now it plays moving pictures and makes noises. WFT?!?!?!?! Do any of you have this WEIRD thing in your houses?

VAYCAYSHUN, All I Ever Wanted

Mom and I are sad about Charlie going to the Bridge. We are relatively new to DWB and don't get to participate as much as some other pups do, but we are both really grateful for all the friends we have made with DWB.

Anyway, last week Mom said we would be having a VAYCAYSHUN this week. I wasn't really sure what this was but it sounded exciting. So Monday morning I woke her up very early to remind her that it's VAYCAYSHUN! And she kept telling me to be quiet and leave her alone because it's VAYCAYSHUN? WFT?!?!

So this week on our VAYCAYSHUN we are doing lots of this:
This is what we have planned for vacation

I think it means basically Mom is going to try to be a LABRADOR for a week! LOL!

This morning we went to the V-E-T for the followup appointment from my ADVENTURE. We had to do some waiting. To keep myself amused, first I did my best FROG impression:

And then I channeled Khyra with some khrossed paw akhtion:
Paws crossed

Pretty good, huh?

The V-E-T redid my bloodwork and my liver numbers are MUCH better so he gave me a clean bill of health except for something about my EARS having a little bit of an infection.

Now I am tired from all that PLAYING and FLIRTING at the V-E-T so I am going to take some naps.
