The Lost Photos

Mom has 87 zillion photos on her cell phone.  And now that she is going to get a new cell phone in a couple weeks, she is going through them to make sure they don't get lost.  These are a few of her favorites from our trip to Bryce Canyon last year.  She forgot all about them!

Gotta Rest

On Friday me and Stanley got pooped!  First we went on our regular 6 mile run.  We always love doing that.  BUTT after we only had a short time to rest, mom and dad had to go to the dog park to meet a man from the city and to do some measuring.  One thing led to another and they ended up taking a long time.  All the while they were doing these stuffs, everybody was throwing my ball.  And they were throwing it FAR!  Finally we had to rest . . . for awhile.

Dog Park Status:  We met with the mayor on Thursday and are hoping to have the park up and running by the end of April.  The council has informally signed off on the current location (with compromises on parking).  We hope to be ready for the council's final vote of approval on April 14th.  Keep your paws crossed!

FFHT - Our Resume

This month's special inclusion is:  " I knew I would remember this forever because . . ."

For all the information on our monthly FFHT, click HERE.

Our mom and dad think it's very impawtent for doggies to have lessons.  They said that doggies with lessons are able to pawticipate more with their families cuz they can do more things and go more places.  Also, mom says that lessons teach the hoomans and doggies how to communicate better so they are good for that reason too.  Me and Stanley just think learning is fun!

Me and Stanley started our lessons when we were youngsters.  We went to Pet Smart University (PSU) and our teacher's name was Tonya.  She was also an animal behaviorist.  Miss Tonya was Bert's teacher too.  Many of you know Bert.  His mom, Miss Vickie, recommended Miss Tonya to us as a good teacher.  We loved her!

Me and Stanley had different ways of learning.  When Stanley was given a command he snapped to attention, saluted dad, and shouted out "Yes Sir, Right Away Sir!"  But I am much more mellow, so when mom gave me a command I would say "Okie Dokie" and then do it sometime in the next few days.  Mom says I never once did the command when I was learning it at school (in class).  

One day, I was feeling sorry for mom so I decided I would do a command PAWFECTLY!  It was the day we learned how to do a SIT-STAY with the distractions of others shopping in the store.  I could tell mom's expectations were really low as she told me to SIT and STAY.  I nearly giggled cuz I knew my plan!  I did it!  Yes I did!

Shoppers pushed their carts past me and I didn't blink, even when they said "Good boy" to me!  I did the command pawfectly.  Mom was so delighted! Finally our teacher shouted "Everyone back to the classroom!" So mom said "RELEASE". BUTT I was still surprising her so I stayed right there in my SIT-STAY.  Mom said "Release" again but I stayed.  She held out a treat but I obeyed the command.  Mom started laughing, saying I was "stuck" and finally had to pick me up.   I knew I would remember this forever because mom was so happy and so proud of me! And that day I promised I would do better in my lessons.

Me and Stanley graduated from our Puppy Manners Class.

And then we took the Intermediate Class and learned a bunch of tricks (Goose's mom always likes me to do a trick where I crawl on the floor like an army man).  And finally, we took the Advanced class!

At the end of the Advanced Class we took the test for our CGC (Canine Good Citizen). This was a picture of me during my test.

And guess what?? We passed!  We are proud of our accomplishments and so are our pawrents!

Happy Birfday Sarge!

We wanted to paws and tell our good furend Sarge Happy Birfday!  We stole this picture of him from a sleepover at Dory's place.  We just love this picture cuz it proves that he may be a rough, and tough Pawlice Commissioner on the outside but he is still just a pup on the inside.  Happy Birfday Sarge!

GOTCHA Tomorrow!

Tomorrow will be our 3 year GOTCHA.  Mom says it has been heaven and the best decision she and dad have ever made.

On the first day we came to live with our pawrents, we looked at the backyard and saw what a huge world we had at our paws.  Three years later we are doing the same thing.

A Spring Walkie

Last weekend we went for a little walkie.  Mom told us to look for signs of spring.

Part of the walk was on sidewalks but mostly it was on trail.

We said hello to the giant doggies.  They are so tall they must be a Great Dane mix.

Mostly we just moseyed down the trail.

We saw LOTS of bees buzzing around the hives!

 And pretty flowers!

The best part is getting wet or muddy!

Of course wet AND muddy is the BEST combination!

But best of all was when we got home . . .

St Paddy's Day!

  Since it's St. Patrick's Day mom made us wear stoopid hats and take a picture.

 We might have had a few bloopers

We didn't ask to wear these goofy hats!

Then I think Stanley started liking his hat!

So I figured I might as well go with the flow . . .

Pretty soon we were actually kinda having fun!

So we finally smiled for the camera.

Dog Park

On Thursday me and Stanley went with our pawrents to Hill Air Force Base and we got to play at the Dog Park!

Stanley was running like crazy!  Mom said he reminded her of a young horse in the spring cuz he was galloping around and kicking up his heels!

I played fetch the whole time of course!

Stanley kept barking he was so happy!

I love it when me and Stanley run full blast!

We sure had a fun time.  We'll be glad when we can go to our own dog park!
