The Art of Being a Pumpkin

Being a “pumpkin” (i.e. cuddling, hugging, kissing, etc.)  will get you out of ever so much trouble, you can’t even believe the stuff I’ve done and have been forgiven for.  I ate a whole pan of scones that grandma made one time (they were within my reach after all). I ate my neighbors chimichanga (again not my fault), he left it close to my nose.  Those are just a couple of things I did a long time ago.

But I always am a “pumpkin”!  Why: because I never know when the mood might strike, and I might get the urge to do something that I’m not supposed to, I know mom can’t get mad at her “little pumpkin”.  I have perfected the “Art of Being a Pumpkin”…you should give it a try too!pumpkin

How Can I Make my Point more Obvious


I don’t get it, I show mom clearly where the squirrel is, and what does she do? She shoots me with the camera! She is supposed to shoot the squirrel and let me retrieve it! Will someone please take her to obedience class, because she’s not behaving properly!


Ps I still love her lots, and can’t stand to be apart from her for a minute! So make sure I get to go to 🙂


To Eat or Not to Eat






A Conundrum!


I’m Amazing!

When my mom and I go “running” which really means “hunting”, we hunt for different animals.  I hunt for rabbits and squirrels, and I’ve noticed that she constantly is looking up in the trees.  So now I do both!  Today I pointed out these beauty’s…in a far off tree.  My mom said I was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!  I knew that already, but I love it when she tells me over and over again.  I especially love it when I get a biscuit for my fabulousness.  P1010900


Sir Winston 007 on Duty!

I am on spy duty! I have top secret intel that there maybe lazy lizards lurking in the area! If they are not busy doing their job, then my big paw deals swift encouraging justice! I just don’t understand why the lizards are not moving with enthusiasm after my intervention!


My First Doggy Bone Race!

I did great! My mom and I ran it in 29:05! I really thought the clock should stop for bathroom breaks, but it didn’t! I was so excited at the start of the race, I kept grabbing mom’s arm! Then Mom made me get in three doggy pools during the race, she poured water all over me so I wouldn’t get a heat stroke. I didn’t care, I just wanted to keep running! It was so much fun! There were so many people to pass, I just wanted to keep passing them, one after the other! Afterwards they served dinner, I had the chicken, it was succulent and scrumptious! OMG, I had a blast! Mom let me swim at the waters edge at the end! I told mom, we are running in the turkey trot on Thanksgiving! I’m sure I’ll get Turkey afterwards, running races sure does have a lot of perks! Wow!!! What a day!
