More Toy Wars

Roxie is a complete and total bully. She hogs the toys, steals balls out of my mouth, and is a total nuisance. My mom tells me to be patient and wait for her to grow up. It's not like I have much of a choice!

Our New Friend, Andy

This is our new friend, Andy. We met him at the playground at the Park. Andy belongs to our neighbor's granddaughter. Andy is almost as big as the granddaughter!

More on the Playground at the Park

In these pictures, you can see just how cool the playground at the Park is. We get to run up and down the slide; jump on short and tall pedestals and platforms; and run through the maze of chains and poles. Great fun for a dog day afternoon!

Playground at the Park

We like the playground at the Park near our house. The equipment is almost like an agility course. It's great fun to jump up on the platforms and run down the slide.

Dog with a Job: Babysitting

On Fridays, we babysit the granddaughter. I'm supposed to make sure she doesn't take off with the Wii remotes. It's Roxie's job to let my mom know when diapers need changing! Roxie and I have developed a special taste for Cheerios that magically appear on the floor around the high chair.

The "Queen" Surveys Her Territory

Roxie thinks she's the queen of the realm. I'm the older member of the pack so actually, the title of "queen" rightfully belongs to me. However, titles aren't worth fighting over.... toy beavers are!

Exhausting Day

We went on a long walk today. It was exhausting. When we got home, I sprawled out on the floor and took a nap. I didn't think it was funny but my dad got a big kick out of taking a picture of me as a dead dog. All I can say is, he has a strange sense of humor.

Spoiled Rotten Brat

Roxie's a spoiled brat. Look how she sucks up to our mom by cuddling in her lap. She's really too big to be a lap dog but try telling her that! She's such a puppy. As a mature and sophisticated dog, I wait to be invited before crawling up on people's laps.

Sneaking Into Off-Limits Territory

This morning, Roxie and I hopped over the electric fence that's supposed to keep us out of the flower bed. We felt perfectly justified going into off-limits territory. We were defending the homeland by chasing squirrels out of the back yard. Still, we had the good graces to look guilty when the camera caught us.

Long and Winding Road

We like long walks with interesting things to check out. This is one of our favorite walks. The path winds along the side of a hill that's pock marked with burrows. It smells like rabbits, squirrels, and coyotes live in these burrows. We keep trying to catch the rabbits and squirrels but they always manage to get away.

New Friend on our Walk

We met a very nice Aussie on our Sunday walk. She was so well trained... she knew "paws up" and went down on a hand signal. My mom had to work a little harder to get Roxie to mind her manners. We discovered our new friend had the same trainer as Roxie: Melody Daggs. My mom is looking forward to enrolling Roxie in Melody's next class.

King of the Hill

On one of our favorite walks, we get to sit at the top of a hill and survey our domain. Below us, there are ground squirrels to chase, dead things to roll in, and interesting smells. What more could a dog ask for?

Tug of War

Roxie got to play tug of war with our mom last night. I was the referee; I made sure everyone played fair and I got to declare the winner. Guess who won?

Trip to Whitie's Pets

We went to Whitie's Pets to get another 35-pound bag of dog food. Our favorite flavor is lamb and rice. Our mom says that makes our coats look nice and shiny. We love trips to Whitie's because we get to pick out new toys and buy new things to chew on. Always a fine outing, it you ask me!

Hide and Seek

Roxie and I got to play hide and seek in the bushes. Can you see me hiding from Roxie?
