I was on a vacation!

Yep...I got to go on vacation!  A visit with my cousins!  Last winter I got to visit with Sherry and Remy and mom said we were going again this year. 

I was so excited to go on our trip!  This is me saying hi to Sherry!  She was a little intimidating to me last year, but this year, because I'm bigger, I wasn't afraid of her.  In fact, we played a lot together!

and this is the handsome, Remy!  I really like him and I think he likes me.  At least he acted like my protector!  He's really a cool dog and loves to play fetch!

We got to go to the dog park and play!  Boy, did we have fun!  At least Remy and I did!

You can see how good Remy is at catching ball!  He is so handsome!

Sherry didn't want to visit or meet new dogs so I was the social greeter for us!

In fact, she didn't even want to play!  Doesn't she look like a little princess sitting in the shade!  I had so much fun on my vacation!!  I am a little tired but mom said it was good that I got to play with my cousins!  I think so too!  Hope we get to play again before we go back to Michigan!  I love being a 'snow bird' with mom and dad!  So much to do here!

Woe is me.....

Well, mom sure did it this time!  About a week ago, mom gave me a "treatment"...she said it was a preventive for fleas and ticks...WHAT!  I don't have fleas or ticks....but mom said this was to make sure I don't GET fleas or ticks...I still don't understand but what I do know is mom's so called "treatment" sure made me itchy! would bath me or rinse me off every other day trying to relieve my itch where she put the K9 Advantix II.  Mom got a little lazy (that's my word and not mom's) and would just let me air dry!  Well, that didn't work out so good!  For me that is!  I would roll and rub and I kept getting matts in my fur!  I've never had matts before so mom was freaking out and trying to brush me but that wasn't working either!  
So today, mom is taking me to the groomers!  Mom said I'll look beautiful again and I sure hope so!!  
Maybe mom will post pictures of me after I get pretty again!  At least I hope I look pretty again...woe is me!!!!

 This picture is from one of our morning walks.  I love my walks!!!  Mom says she does too.  I'm really good and when a car comes down the road all mom has to do is say "CAR" and I sit right down!  Doesn't matter if I'm in the middle of the road or off to the side I sit!  Sometimes people driving their car will laugh but I'm a good girl. 
When we walk, mom tells me to "go sniff" so I can roam around (except I don't go on the grass).  I like to roam.  When mom has on the short leash, then I have to heel.  I'm really good at both!  I'm such a smart dog!  Mom and dad keep telling me that so it must be true!
This is me waiting for mom to put her phone/camera away!  She's always taking pictures when we walk.  That is except at night (except for the Christmas lights).  Lately, we've been walking a mile at night in the dark!!  Mom and dad are always busy so by the time mom gets dinner and dishes over with it's dark.  Mom said she doesn't mind walking at night.  She has a flashlight on which hangs from the leash and I have a flashing light on my harness.  It's not the cars you have to watch out for anyway, it's the golf carts!  Folks ride their golf carts all day long and night.  Dad said he'll take me for a ride at night before we leave.

Well, have to go now.  Mom is in  her sewing room and I get to lay up on the bed next to her table and look at the window!  I love Florida!!!

We can walk in the dark!

This is what mom and I see on our nightly walks!  We usually go for a walk after dinner but lately mom and dad have been gallivanting all over so they don't get home until late!
I still make mom take me on a walk. I have a light on my leash and mom carries a flashlight.  She said we have to be careful not to get hit by a golf cart!   I guess some old folks drive around at night in their cart!  You'd think they would walk instead!

This is me riding in the golf cart!  I love the golf cart!!!  Dad takes me for a ride every day when he gets home from golfing!  it's my favorite time of the day...well, in addition to walking in the dark!  That's fun too!

And this is where I laid most of this afternoon...I would jump off when mom left the room but as long as she stay at her desk in the 'sewing room' I just slept on the bed!  I love this room too because I can look out the window so I know when dad comes home!  I have to be ready to ride in the golf cart! 

So I better get will be home soon!
