Favorite Toy

This bubble wrap core has been one of my favorite toys ever since the move.  I carry it around, chew up the card board and leave little chunks all over the house.  Its so much fun!!!!

Saturday Errands

 Momma always makes sure my furs are under control but since moving has forgotten about her hair.  So I took her to the local hooman grooming salon to get a trim.  She took off about 4 inches.  Its now shoulder length.

After the salon we drove right down the street to GoodYear for an oil change.  I was eyeing the tires but momma said I couldn't play in  them today.  Drat!

Since I couldn't play in the tires I took a little nap while momma watched youtube.

Then I awoke from my slumber upon hearing my name.  The lovely receptionist came over to let us know the car was done.  She also informed us that the power steering thingamajig is cracked and leaking.  Resulting in a humming when we turn left.  And a cabin filter thingamajig is bad.  She qoted us 1,043 milk bones.  I thought momma was going to cry right there in the office.  I bitey-ed her fingers to quickly revive her. 

After we got those errands marked off the to do list we stopped at a new place.  There were hundreds of dogs barking everywhere.  This sure isn't the dog park where could we be?!?!?!

PETS?  Clinic?  What?

So apparently momma found out that the local Pets clinic offers heartworm tests at a discounted price (They have other services too but I'm all up to date for now).  So since I have been on heartworm prevention for 1 year exactly (as of 2-15-18) I needed to be tested to ensure that the medicine was working.  Are you sure bouts this momma?

Ok, I'll be brave!

We got signed in and were #20 in line.  The place was chock full of doggies, kitties and hoomans.  We got to sit by a lovely cocker named Sugar (who also goes to Margot's) and 2 lovely labs named Elenor and Ben.  Ben was a full sized doggie but demanded to be held like a baby in his mommas lap.  He was sweet.  Then a nice gentleman came and called my name.  He took me behind the partition and gave me a pokie, stole my blood and put it in some plastic container.  Crazy!  Then he returned me to momma.  I got real quiet, laid my head on her shoulder and held on to her arm for dear life.  I wasn't going to go wif anyone else for more pokies. 

After 10 minutes the gentleman returned to let momma know my test was negative and thats a good thing!  Negative means my heart is free of those yucky wormies and the heartworm preventative is doing its job.  Even if its nasty and I really hate taking it.  He even took a picture of my test showing that it was negative so I could blog it.  That sure was kind of him!

When we got home we put my test results page in my doggie book for safe keeping and also grabbed my valentines day pawprint art to put it away.  We flipped to the page that had my puppy prints and wow have my paws grown!  These were made 11 months apart.  #memories #growingpuppy

Training Collar Model

So I LOVE my purple training collar!

However momma went on the interwebs to find me one that was a smaller width.  And it has a crazy story.  Momma ordered off Amazon.com and at check out she forgots to update our new address.  So it got all the way to the post office delivery person when momma realized it and she called the Benton KY post office they contacted the delivery person and she pulled it from the route.  Then once back at the main post office depot it was forwarded to me here in TX.  Thanks Benton Post Office you rock!  I tried it on and its a PERFECT fit.  And black is furry slimming!

Serious training pose.

Momma posted this one on FB and everyone keeps calling me the queen.  I LOVE it!!!!

Alone in the Dog Park - Time for a Photoshoot

At the dog park one evening we arrived and you will never guess what happened.  Momma saw her cousin Masyn again and her cousin Michael.  We just love seeing family all over the place.  Justyne, Michaels daughter, was there too and took a selfie with me.  They were the only ones in the park and were heading out as we headed in. 

I checked the hydrants for pee mail.

Oh I smell yorkie, schnauzer and chihuahua!

After that we did a quick photo shoot.



Then I spotted some doggies in the large dog park.  Gotta go!

On my way back to momma I found 1/2 a ball.  Seems it still can be thrown and retrieved.

So I grabbed it...

....and dropped it at mommas feet so she could throw it.  We played for a good 20 minutes. 

As the sun set we got some beautiful shots.


Then we headed for home.

Momma Gambled on the Fox and WON

 Doggy Nanny and Grandpa made plans wif momma, Aunt lynette and Aunt Brenda to go out of state to a casino.  Sadly we doggies got left at home.  But Gracie and I played Bitey face so alls well that ends well.

They went all the way to Oklahoma!  To the Kiowa Casino. 

Fist stop in the casino was to get dinner at the Morning Star Steak House.

Momma got a Chicken Fried Steak, which she said was fantastic but again she didn't bring any home for me to sample.  Tsk Tsk!  Grandpa got a steak and he was nice enough to share.  It was the bestest food I ever tasted!!!!

Next stop was to get their casino license.  And being their first time Doggy Nanny, Grandpa and momma got $10 each to gamble with.

Momma tried a few machines and didn't win then she spotted this machine.  Fox Trot.  She said it reminded her of a certain cowboy wearing red head....who ever could she be thinking of?!?!?!? :)

Well it paid off she won $38.77.  That would buy a lot of treats and toys, just sayin'!

Momma wanted to give a big THANK YOU to Doggy Nanny and Grandpa for taking her to such a fun place!

Chronicles from the Dog Park

Last Sunday I visited the WF Dog Park.

Ahh!  Clear blue skies and lots of sunshine!

It was a full house.  Time for a sniffing train.


This is Charli with an I.  She was a fantastic chasing buddy.  She was so gentle and sweet!  Hope to see her again.


A gorgeous cocker stopped by but didn't stay long due to the wind.

Then a set of Westies showed up just before we left and we had a fantastic game of chase!
