Tagged by Abby.

I've been tagged by Miss Abby. Thank you! I feel very priveleged by this opportunity to share a bit of myself with the world.

1. I tilt my head and perk up my ears when people talk to me.

2. I will eat just about anything...even carrots, apple peels and grapes. I'm not fussy. Potato peels too.

3. I will not eat garlic or onions though.

4. I like chasing my tail...and quite often I catch it.

5. I just learned to swim this past summer. And I do it quite well. I'm a late bloomer with that because I just didn't seem to get what I was supposed to do. My owners tried everything. After all...I'm a lab and supposed to swim. I learned by watching Claudia's dogs swim in her pond. I copied them and now I love it!!!!

6. If it is muddy outside and my mom has to whipe my feet off before I come in, it makes my hair stand on end! I think it is akin to a person scratching a blackboard! I hate it!

7. I saw Abby's horse once and it scared me. My hair stood right up and I barked and barked and barked. I think I made Gudl nervous. She was afraid I would bite Daisy...but I've never bitten anyone before. I thought Daisy was the biggest dog I'd ever seen before in my life!!! I had never seen a horse before!

My boy and his broken paw

This is me and my boy. He played with me a little bit last night. I hafta be real careful with him 'cuz he hurt one of his paws. He can't play chase with me...but he can still throw my toy for me. I go and get it. That's me in the picture chewing on my toy. Because of his hurt paw, he can't climb the stairs good. He has been sleeping down here on the couch. I'm not allowed on the couch. I sleep right on the floor next to him. I hope his paw is better soon!

Patience is a they say.

I like going for walks...even when it's cold. But no one has been walking me lately. My mom hates the cold. See how deep the snow was here?

Today the little girl is home sick from school. She is watching TV...and my mom is drinking coffee and on the computer. Do you like my tail? I try to catch it sometimes.

I hope they will notice me waiting patiently by the back door.

The enemy

There is a new creature that has just moved into our house. It's evil. It has a little thing on the top of it that spins and it shoots up in the air. It also has a tail except its not like mine. It's striat, mine is rounded. It can't wag its tail like I can. It also has a spining thing on its tail. Strangely it only has two feet. It's strage. It looks kind of like a bug. Only I'm not quite sure if it is or not.

It tried to hurt my mom so I jumped to her defence. I gladly saved the day. Okay, not really but I was close.

Hey, doggy friends, do you know what it is.

Do not disturb

What's my day like? I get up. Boy lets me out. Boy feeds me. Mom gets up and I hang out in the kitchen to help her make school lunches. If I'm lucky, she drops a pretzel or two. I ask to go out again. I come in and lay down. I catch afew z-z-z-z-z-zs. If I hear someone in the kitchen, I come running. They might need me to clean up the floor if they drop something. Sometimes I walk the kids to school. Other times I don't. Sometimes I go to Joey's house (a german shorthair pointer). Other times I don't. I catch more z-z-z-z-z-zs. My people come home. I hang out in the kitchen while mom makes dinner. I sit by my dish and try to look pathetic. I eat. I catch some z-z-z-z-z-zs. During my family's dinner I sit just outside the room. I'm not allowed in. Something about it not being polite to put my nose on the table while they're eating. When the scriptures are being read, I always perk up my ears because I love God's word. (and I know it's almost time for me to come in and clean up the floor) I come in. Scope out the floor for dropped food. Then I catch more z-z-z-z-zs. Sometimes Mom takes me for a walk. I catch more z-z-z-z-z-z-zs. I go out and come in. I get a couple of treats and then go to bed.
Life is good.

Things have been really weird around here. Every morning, the kids disappear for hours. It's like, where are they? Oh yeah...I did walk them to the brick building yesterday. Mom kissed them goodbye, they patted me on the head and then they went inside of it. Then Mom and I walked home again. Later on in the day...a big yellow thing rolls up the road and Mom says, "the kids are home" and I run to the window and look out. They come inside and then they trash the house.
Oh well. As long as I'm still fed, I'm happy.
