Licking paws

 The momma here asking for some advice. Matilda has always had allergy issues. She sees a doggie dermatologist and is on special allergy meds. Lately she's been licking her paws almost constantly. They're red, but I don't know if something's making them red and that's why she's licking them or if they're red because she's licking them. Now she's licked one so much it has raw spots and she's started limping on it. I'm kind of at my wit's end of what to do, and to top it off I have to leave her at boarding tomorrow night because I'm going on vacation. (Absolutely can't reschedule) Any suggestions for a frazzled momma??

So many changes!

 Hey efurrybody! I know you haven't heard from me in a looooong time, but I thought I'd update you on some changes around here. I'm soooo tired because we've been working like dawgs around here for the past few weeks.

Wanna know why? Well, you can see some stuffs in the background there. We've spent the past few weeks up at our Best Guy's house putting all his stuffs in boxes, and he brought some of it down to OUR house. Then yesterday, we moved a bunch of our stuffs around and even put our bedroom furniture in another room! I thought Momma had lost her little human mind!

Buts she said that our Best Guy is going to be living with US now, and we needed to clear spaces to bring some of his stuffs in. We're going to be sleeping in his big spacious bed that gives me all the room I want to streeeeeeeetch out. AND Momma says because he works remotely -- and that doesn't mean anything about using a TV -- I'll get to hang out with him all day and be able to run and play out of my dog door instead of being crated all day while he's at work!!

And that's not all! Momma has a big binder with lots of paper and words and drawings that she said means a new place for us to live. Yup, they're building a brand-new house for all three of us to call home from now on! There's going to be lots of space for all of us, and Momma said she scoped out lots of spots for my dog beds. We're not going to be in there until around Christmas, so we'll be a little crowded in our house until then. But we think it's going to be worth it!

PHEW! That's a lot of new changes. We're all excited about them, but it's a lot going on right now. But once I have my days to hang out with our Best Guy all the time, I need to ask him a very serious question. If he's living with us all the times now, does that make him my Daddy now? I've never had one, so I'd like to know!

An adventure making new friends!

 Momma and I had a fun adventure meeting new furiends today! Momma didn't have time to take any pictures, so I'll illustrate with some stock photos.

There we were, finishing up our morning walk. There's a street we sometimes cross one way for a longer walk or sometimes cross the other way to go through a little playground and head home. But what did we see?

Some new furiends were running to say hello! They were sure in a hurry, barrelling straight towards us! 

Momma was sure feeling tense for some reason, but I knew they were furiends! They came running towards and sure enough --

There were not this many of us, but it's a good illustration otherwise!

We were happy and playing like old buddies! One of them was a beeYOUtiful black boxer named Rocky. He knew Momma could help him when he and his brother got lost! Once Momma got hold of his collar and could dial the number on his tag, his momma came straight to get them both. We kept them busy by playing until she could arrive. And then Momma and I headed home!

As we were leaving, Momma muttered, "Phew! I thought we were going to have to run to get on top of the playground equipment!" I think that would've been a fun game. I'll ask Rocky if he wants to play that next time!

Unjustly accused!


Folks, can you believes how cruel my momma is? You'd think that after all our time together, she'd have a little faith in me. See, this weekend, she was very proud of herself for baking her furst loaf of bread. Our Guy gave her a baking cookbook for her barkday, and it turned out pretty nice.

She had a slice or two from it and was saving the rest for Our Guy to taste. But later that day, she came into the kitchen and... well...

I'm not sure WHAT happened to that thing, but can you believes that she blamed ME for eating it?? Just because I happened to be standing nearby and licking my chops? The nerve of her!!

Making her work for it!

 Hi folks, Matilda here! I knows Momma and I has been MIA. We wanted to come back to raise a margarita to our dearest furiend Ruby the Airedale. She has been corrupting me since I was a young pup, BOL! And she was a good furiend to Angel Casey before that. We are thinking of her and sending much love to her momma.

Since we is here, I thoughts I'd share some pictures Momma and I took yesterday. It was a totally gawjuss day, so Momma and I walked all the way to the pond at the front of the neighborhood to visit the ducks! While we were there, Momma said "Let's take some pretty pictures, Matilda." I said okay, but you know Dog Rules -- make her work for it furst!!

 "C'mon, Matilda, look at Momma!"

Hang on, Momma, I think I hears something.

'Smile for the camera'?? BOL, good one, Momma!

What do you means you furgot the treats??

Sorry, I think I hears something. VERY impawtant.

But finally I tooks pity on Momma and gave her the Money Shot.

Sleepover camp!

 No, don't worry, I'm not going away again. Momma and I are hosting a sleepover camp this week. Guess who for?

Yup, it's Verity! Verity is the official office dog at Momma's work. She works very hard comforting victims of crime. This week her momma is at a conference, and her secondary handler is out of town. So since Verity and I are bestest buds, we offered to let her hang her leash with us. And OMD, are we having a blast already!

We wrestled and played bitey face!

We had long serious conversations that--


Wow, she picked that one up quick! I took her for a nice long walk to see the sights in our neighborhood and show her all the best places to read peemail.

And it turns out we have the same favorite game! We played lots and lots and LOTS of tug!

We watched the Olympics with Momma.

Momma says we're just like two peas in a pod, whatever that means.

I'll try to get Momma to share some more pictures of our super fun week!
