Lately it seems like my toys keep disappearing. Like my goose here.

Furst his legs disappeared. Then his head. Then all his innards! The last time Momma and I played tug with him, he was making this weird riiiiiiip sound instead of squeaking. Now I can't find him anywhere. I was also playing with my trusty Yellow Ball last night, and he stopped squeaking too. I tried some surgery to figure out what was wrong with him, but Momma took him off to recovery just after I got the hole open.

But THEN the magic happened!

Look at my Orange Ball!! Orange Ball magically showed up in my toy box yesterday, along with Yellow Ball AND his twin brother, plus Banana, PLUS Piggy! Momma said something about busy boxers being good boxers. Whatever. I LOVES Orange Ball so very very much, and all the other guys too. I've been playing with them all since they magically appeared, but Orange Ball is my favorite. And he never gets tired of playing like Yellow Ball used to. Momma used to take him away just when we were getting REALLY squeaky and say it was his nap time, but Orange Ball is the strong silent type. I guess he doesn't need naps. How fun!!

Do your toy boxes ever magically produce new toys? I'm going to have to start checking mine more often!

Field trip!!

OMD, guys, you'll never GUESS what I got to do this weekend!

On Saturday, Momma and I went to our Best Guy's house. It was my very furst time to go there, and Momma said I needed to be on my best behavior. DUH!  I'm always on my best behavior! We went to watch the pawesome new SpaceX launch, which was very exciting!

But know what else was exciting?

Our Best Guy has the BEST Nature TV at his house!! I was just sitting on the couch chilling when I saw tree rats run right by and play on the big tree. They were a little shy and froze when I came to watch. But there was also a BUNNY BUNNY BUNNY who ran by a few times, and lots and lots of birdies!I even smelled a big kitty in his backyard I said I'd love to play with, but Momma said no, bobcats are not for playtime. Boo! But I hope I can go back and watch Nature TV some more.

Momma kept telling me I was So Good and she was so proud of me. I mean...duh. Of course I'm good. Humans like to say the obvious sometimes!

My hero!

Momma got a very special new pawtrait in honor of Angel Casey's Bridge anniversary last week. We all know that Angel Casey was a strong, brave pup who wanted to be just like his hero Captain America.

Introducing....Captain Pawmerica!!

Doesn't he look so heroic??? Momma just loves it! (Yes, she cried.) It came from a pawesome company called Crown & Paw. She immediately hung it up with the rest of our doggie pawtriture upstairs so he can look after the house.

Nature Friday

I finally made Momma take some pictures of me for Nature Friday. This is our front flower bed, which has finally burst into bloom. Momma calls the rose bushes "the twins" and talks to them when we come back from walks. BOL.

She's still trying to get around to cleaning out the back bed. (Like she has anything else to do. She spends hours on the couch!) It had beautimous flowers on the rose bushes a week ago, but then they got pounded out in a storm. Boo!

Has it really been two years?

We still think about you all the time, Angel Casey. Thank you for leading me to Momma and trusting me to take care of her for you.

Happy May Day!

Momma and I have been super busy snuggling, so we didn't get around to making a new wreath this year. But happy May Day from last year!

Under attack!

OMD, folks, you'll never guess what happened early this morning! Momma and I were under attack!

There we were, innocently asleep in bed, when all of a sudden squirrels started throwing acorn grenades at us!!! I could hear them hitting the roof and the windows, over and over and over. There must've been a HUGE squirrel army out there!! Momma tried saying it was something called "hail" and part of the thunderstorm, but HAH! I've heard thunder, and it doesn't come with stuff attacking us!!

It was a pretty tense time, folks. I was on high alert to protect Momma if those squirrels breached the house. I wanted to go out and drive them away, but you know, I couldn't leave Momma unprotected. Eventually they were skeered off by my intimidating presence. PHEW!!! I sure hope they don't try THAT again.

Come oooooon, Momma!!

Every morning, my momma tortures me. I know, she looks so nice, right?! But she does!

See, the bestest toy in the whole wide WORLD is a plastic bottle. It makes this pawesome crinkling sound when you chew it, and you can throw it and chase it and everything. There's NOTHING better than this bottle! And every morning, Momma pulls one out of the fridgey-rator for me. But does she give it to me? Nooooo! Okay, it requires a little preparation. It comes out of the fridgey-rator with some nasty liquid inside, so she has to get rid of that. But instead of just pouring it down the sink, she drinks it. Blech. I will follow her around and stare at her. Sometimes I'll let out a really pathetic whimper and put a paw on her hand. But she is unmoved!! She just keeps telling me I can have it when she finishes. She's so mean!

So I'm just going to stare at Momma until she gives in. It might take a while. But that bottle is worth it!!

Blogville Isolympics!

Welcome, evfurrybody, to another event in Blogville's fabulous ISO-lympics!

Now, I thought long and hard about what event was best suited for me. I'm so good at fetch and chase and tug and gymnastics, not to mention my dedication in all the napping categories! But I finally decided to share my entry in the beloved event


So you starts off on a nice made bed. Make sure you look extra innocent so you can dodge any obstacles like Momma time-outs.

Then you get started. Warm up slowly. It helps to have a toy to help you get up to the really epic levels of energy.

Build that energy up, faster and faster, until you're a whirling dervish of energy running all around and over and on and off that bed, getting it into just the right artistic spot. Then when the whistle blows -- which sounds a lot like Momma coming back into the room -- flop down in just the right innocent position.

Then just let your momma admire your work. She'll shout your name SO many times!!!

Well, there you have it! I definitely won the gold medal in this event!

Easter outtakes

Momma said she thought my furiends might like to see some of the outtake shots from our Easter photoshoot.

I do NOT like wearing things on my head. After much trial and tribulation, Momma and I agreed that I wouldn't have to wear any silly things on my head for howliday photoshoots...EXCEPT Easter, because she said there's no substitute for bunny ears.

I agreed -- because treats. But I never said I'd be happy about it.

Or agreed to look at the camera!

But no matter how silly it all is, I just can't deny one thing.

I look gawjuss!

Hoppy Easter!

Hoppy Easter to all of my pals! I hope you got to chase a bunny today!

 What, Momma? That's not how it works? Siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiigh. FINE, I hope you got visited by a bunny that you DIDN'T get to chase (that's stupid) and got some nommy treats instead of fresh bunny meat.

Hard at work!

This is the face of a dog hard at work:

Sure, it may LOOK like I'm sleeping, but that's concentration!

See the relief on Momma's face? Her back was hurting a lot yesterday, so we spent a lot of time laying on the couch together. And when I jumped up beside her and laid down in juuuuuust the right spot, she let out a big sigh of relief. Apparently I was exactly the right amount of warmth and pressure to make her back feel a lot better.

It's a ruff job, but I'll always be there to help my Momma feel better!

Sunday Selfie...with a problem

Oh dawg. I know this post is late, but you wouldn't believes the trouble I had trying to get a selfie. Furst of all, SOMEBODY else barged into my selfie.

"Smile, Matilda!"
"This is a SELFie, not an USsie, Momma!!" 

Then she started making fun of my expression.

 "Momma, you look ridiculous."
"I look like you! They say dogs and their owners start looking alike."

 "I cannot work like this."

FINALLY I talked her into letting me just take a darned selfie like the day says!

 I think the isolation is getting to her. When will this end?

Remembering my sister

One year ago today, my sweet kitty sister Pigeon said goodbye to me and Momma and went to the Rainbow Bridge.

She was the bestest sister, and Momma and I still miss her very much.

But we know she is up at the Bridge snuggling with Jessie, her bestest furiend and sweet sister, and all our other angels. So that makes us smile.

Tired of the pupperazzi

OMD, I discovered there's something worse than our pawrents not going to work and interrupting our nap schedule!! When they're bored, they want to take pictures of you. ALL THE TIME!!! Is anyone else experiencing this phenomenon?

 Not now, Momma, I'm bored of pictures!

 Okay, fine. Cheese!

 What do you mean, that was a weird smile?!?! You get what you get, woman!

Nope, not looking at the flashy beast again.

...Okay, fine. A treat will get you ONE look at the camera. Are we done now?
