Home Again, Home Again, Jiggety Jig!

Sorry I haven't posted lately, but my family has been away for the past couple of weeks on a business trip for daddy/beach vacation for mom and my girl. While they were away, I got to stay with my favorite pup in the whole wide world—cousin HENDRIX!

I had SO MUCH fun staying at his house! We played some hard fought battles of tug-of-war with his stuffies. One by one they made their way up to the "awaiting surgery" shelf as we popped their seams, plucked their appendages, and spilled stuffing and squeakers onto the floor. Finally there were only tennis balls left to play with, so my uncle got us this really cool knotted rope from the store. We used it to play tug-of-war—it was awesome fun! Plus, playing with Hendrix helped me lose my last two baby teeth!*

*(On a side note, mom found it interesting that the photo my aunt forwarded to mom of my lost teeth were arranged like two little horns, but my aunt assured her that I have been a good girl! ...err, for the most part!)

While I was staying with cousin Hendrix, we got to try something new—WATERMELON! We LOVED it! We waited patiently while each other got to try it. I can't wait for more! YUM!

My aunt and uncle have been teaching us pups how to catch frisbees in mid-air! Hendrix is better at it than I am, but after watching him a few times and mimicking his technique, I am starting to get the hang of it! A little more practice and I'll have it down pat! My aunt and uncle have continued working with me on catching balls in mid-bounce as well. I am getting good! I don't know that I'll ever get bored with these new games!

Bringing the ball back for a bounce

My family missed me REALLY bad while they were gone—my girl even cried a couple of times. They called my aunt frequently to get updates on what I was up to and my aunt took pictures of me smiling to send to mom's email.

Cheese, mom!

Sometimes my aunt would put her phone on "speaker mode" so that I could hear mom talking to me. How strange to hear a familiar voice in such a little box? Puzzling... I tried licking the phone a few times when I heard mom's voice, but it's just not the same as licking her!

My mom and my girl are coming to get me this weekend. I am going to miss Hendrix so much! He is my best friend in the whole world! Thankfully mom and my aunt are already making plans as to when I'll get to see him again!

Best friends

Hope you are having a great summer! Hopefully now that my family's back in town mom will get more serious about taking pictures and blogging about my antics!



  1. We liked lots about your post, but the best - WATERMELON. Oh my dog, what a treat.

  2. It is so nice that you have extended family that takes such great care of you! Disturbing news are losing your puppy look. That makes me very sad :(

  3. Sam and Monty love watermelon too! It is good to have a chance to play with other pups! You two look like you had so much fun together.
