The Puddle!!!

We walked around the pond today...and I played in my big puddle! This is the puddle that I like to play in, but Mom gets upset with me when I do. The puddle was really, really big today, too, 'cause of all of the rain that we've had. It was so cool! Mom didn't even get after me too much for playing in it. I think that's just 'cause she was trying to take pictures, though.

But she did get pretty mad when I started drinking from the puddle. I don't know what the big deal's just puddle water. I did that a couple of times. he he he

Here's my puddle from a distance. And then Mom took some pictures of me playing in the puddle (when she wasn't yelling at me for drinking the puddle water...).

Of course I had to sniff the garbage can in the middle of the water. Wiped my feets there for a bit, too.

The "You Try To Pet Me, I Try To Bite You" Game

Last night Mom and I played my favorite game...the "you try to pet me, I try to bite you" game! I bury myself under my blue blankie (sometimes Mom helps), and them Mom "gets" me. When she tries to get me, I start trying to bite her through the blankie. It's SO much fun!

In this picture, I'm looking at the camera. Can you tell? he he he

That Stupid Door Mat

Here's a picture of that stupid door mat that Mom thinks is so funny. I hate that thing!

The Door Mat

Mom put this thing in front of our door and she said it's a door mat. I don't understand why she put it there. It just makes it harder for me to get inside. Now I have to walk around the side of the stupid door mat and then jump to get inside. She said that I should just walk over it, but I can't figure out why I'd do that. It's certainly a pain to get in, though, since I don't think I should step on it!

And here's another gripe that I have with it... Mom thinks that it's all funny that the door mat says, "Ask not for whom the dog barks. It barks for thee." What is THAT supposed to mean? I'm a little offended here. I don't bark, so why is Mom telling people that I do???

Stupid Rain!!!

It's pouring down rain outside right now, so I got all soaking wet when Mom took me outside to potty. I hate the rain. The parking lot is flooded, so I got wet from both directions.

Stupid rain!

Worst Day Ever!

Yesterday was terrible...just terrible!

Mom slept later than she should, so she didn't take me for a walk around the pond. Instead, we had to just take a short walk around the place we live. It was her fault for sleeping late, so why am I the one punished???

Then, she came home really, really early from work. I knew something was up, though, because she doesn't do that. Sure enough, I had an appointment at...THE GROOMER! I hate that place. It's just terrible! They make me take a bath and they make me sit under a dryer. Then I have to sit still while they give me my haircut. I really don't like going there.

I thought I was going to get out of the haircut itself because I saw Mom standing there when I was finished getting dry. I thought things were looking up. Nope. SHE LEFT! That's right...she freaking left me at the groomer all alone TWICE yesterday!

Then when we went home, she wouldn't let me walk much because she said she was in a hurry. She waited for me to take care of business and then she scooped me up and took me inside. I had no choice in the matter.

And then she left again!!! I know it wasn't a class night for her because she just had one the night before. So why on earth did she spend all evening someplace other than being home with me???

That's just not right. I'm pretty ticked at her now...

Last Weekend

Guess who I got to see last Saturday...HOSSY!!! It was Great Grandma Thompson's birthday, so Mom and I went back home to visit. I stayed with Hoss at Grandma Cindy and Grandpa Marion's house, and Mom went out to the birthday party. Then when they all came back, we just hung out at Grandma and Grandpa's house. Hossy and I played in the backyard and that was so cool. Started raining on us, but I didn't care! Hoss had that silly Kong of his in his mouth just about the entire day. He's so funny!

Quack, Quack, Quack

Guess what I did this morning on my walk... I chased some ducks!

Mom and I didn't walk around the pond 'cause she didn't wake up early enough. So we just walked around the buildings where we live. Those duckies must have been confused, too, because they were hanging out near a drainage ditch by a building near our house. I didn't see them at first because I was already walking really fast, sniffing and looking for a good spot in the grass to take care of some business. Then I looked up, and there were two duckies RIGHT in front of me! They started to take off 'cause I must have scared them. I thought, "Well I'm going to take advantage of this!" and I took off after 'em.

I would have caught one of them, too, if I wasn't on that stupid leash. Of course I have no idea what I would have done if I had caught it...but at least I could say that I caught a duckie!

Quack, quack, quack

How I Embarrassed Mom

This was SO funny that I just have to share...

Yesterday after Mom got home from work we went for a walk around our pond. There's this spot where the sidewalk is all flooded from the rain we had this week. It's a deep puddle, and it goes into the grass on both sides of the sidewalk, too. Mom tried to get me to walk around the puddle, but what fun is that?! I went right through it! So she starts in on me...

"Lexi, get out of the puddle! You're getting your belly all wet. LEXI-LOU, get over here!"

I finally got tired of her nagging and tugging on my leash, so I jumped out of puddle near where Mom was. I waited until we were almost all of the way past the puddle, though. So then Mom keeps going...

"Oh, now that did you a lot of good. You splashed through the entire thing and jumped out at the end! You soaked yourself!"

And THAT'S when Mom realized that there was a guy on a bike right behind us. He was laughing as he rode past. Mom was SO embarrassed. She said that he was laughing 'cause she was fighting with a tiny doggie over a big puddle. I guess not all people talk to their doggies like Mom talks to me, either. I thought it was hysterical!

Puppy Poetry: Munchie Bones

Munchie Bone, Munchie Bone
You’re my favorite treat.
I love to chew and gnaw on you
You’re so good to eat!

You’re tasty in my tummy
And lovely in my mouth.
The only problem that I have
Is the one down south…

Munchie Bones must contain
My daily fiber fill
For when I eat too many
I feel a little ill.

I have to go out a lot
To take care of "stuff"
But even with that issue
I still can’t get enough.

So Munchie Bones are the best
But tomorrow I’ll have to pay
My tummy will be queasy
‘Cause I ate five today…

Thank You, Easter Bunny!!!

Guess what the Easter Bunny brought me today...a bag of Munchie Bones!!!! It's been a long, long time since I've had any Munchie Bones. I love those things SO MUCH, but Mom said that since my liver and stuff were so sick, I couldn't eat them anymore. I guess the Easter Bunny didn't know that, 'cause he gave me a whole bag all for myself!

I got Mom up early today to see if the Bunny had been here yet. Then we went for a walk around the pond to see if he was still out there someplace. I wanted to thank him. We didn't see him, though, so maybe Mom will help me mail him a thank-you note...

I wore my pretty Easter dress today, of course. Mom took some pictures of me enjoying those yummy, yummy Munchie Bones in my cute outfit.

Happy Easter!

Mom bought me an Easter dress this year. I don't think we're going anywhere for Easter, but she said it was cute and it was on sale. I do look pretty adorable in it. I even posed so that Mom could take some pictures!

Geese at the Pond

Mom and I have been walking around the pond lots and lots lately. It's really cool. I love to sniff over there. Anyway, Mom took some more pictures of me and our pond.

This one is of me sniffing in the wind and wiping my feets...

We've got lots of geeses over at our pond, too. Mom liked this picture because it has me walking fast over by some geese.

Can you believe those silly geese are all afraid of ME?!?! They're twice as big as I am! I think that's so silly.

It's a Stay-Home Night!

Mom's home tonight! I love it when she has stay-home nights. The stay-home days on the weekends are even better, but I'll sure take these stay-home nights, too!

We squeaked and played tug with my toys tonight. That was really fun. We played my favorite "you try to pet me while I try to bite you" game with my blue blankie, too.

Now Mom says she has to work on her homework, but I thoroughly disagree. I think she needs to just keep on playing with ME. I mean, c'mon...what is more important here??? ME? or her stupid homework???

I'm gonna win!
