Who's Yer Daddy?

Today was a very special day. Not only did Mom and Leah arrive safely in Vegas (hopefully to see Rambo's g-mom and g-pop!), but Jessie graduated from college with her associates degree... and its Dad's Birthday!

Although Dad wasn't home most of the day because he was watching Jessie at the college, but when he got home we shared a nice big delicious banana split! Mmmmm ice cream! Of course Pedro and I let Jessie and Dad eat their fill before we polished it off, but it sure was good! Afterwards Dad relaxed for a bit on the couch watching some fishing shows before a boys night out.

Hahahah! Out as in asleep that is! I woke up when I heard Jessies camera turn on. I'm not being caught sleeping! Happy Birthday Dad! How cool are these cakes?!?!?!?

In other news, Jessie felt compelled to dig out my old bandanna and make me wear it around the house today. She thinks it looks good on me when I'm all shaved down in my summer do. Hopefully we will be able to get some pics from mom and make a post about that when she gets home. For some reason when I wear the stupid thing I have a very short attention span. Jessie was having a hard time snagging me with the flashy beast. She whipped out some treats hoping to grab my attention but I just got even more excited.

She grabbed one good shot mid bark! Grrrrrr... look at my scary teeth!

Nah Nah! Can't get me!

Ziggy Marley... singing out... have a good week bloggers! I'll see you soon!

Help Wanted!

(I'm thinking of hiring a new/another secretary to help me with my blog!)

Position: Blog Secretary
Requirements: To help me with my blog whenever needed. Must enjoy long walks on the beach, playing fetch with tennis balls, giving belly rubs, and giving out treats.

Hello again everyone. I'm finally back to blogging now that Jessie has reappeared. She left for almost two weeks and couldn't help me with my bloggie. And do you know where she went? TO WORK! Hmph.... I hate when my humans have to go to work. It means that Pedro and I have to sit at home all alone. Jessie is all finished with school for the summer so now she doesn't come home to visit Pedro and I anymore during the week. Leah came home a week or two ago and I was hoping she would be home with us but she has to work too! What is with these humans and work!?!?

Oh well, at least she found some time this week to help me out. Everyday can't be a blogging day. At least some good things have happened since my last post! Like I said before... Leah is home! Everyone was so happy to see her again. She was gone away at school for so long. It is very nice to have her back in the house and be able to spend some time with her before she goes back to school. Pedro is very happy to have her back.

Jessie's boyfriend Brian is back to visit for the summer as well. He lives in North Carolina with his family now (he used to live here on Long Island) and visits every summer. I'm sure Jessie has been spending plenty of time with him and that's another reason why she hasn't been able to help me with my posting. Brian is okay, I don't mind his as much as Pedro does, plus he has a dog of his own down in NC. His name is Buddy and he's a handsome mutt like me!

Mom finally decided to give me a buzz so now I'm sporting around my summer do. Jessie wasn't there to help out in the process but she thinks Mom did a great job and I look very handsome. Everyone was saying that I don't look as big without all of my fur. At least I won't get so hot in the heat. Although the water from the pool does feels a lot colder without all of my fur to soak it up.

One of my good friends and very dedicated blogger Joey gave me another award! Rules are that you have to list seven things you love to do and seven of your favorite blogs! Joey thank you so much! Jessie is very sorry for not posting about it sooner! You sure are a great blogger buddy.

Here are my seven favorite things to do...

1. Play with Pedro
2. Play with my toys
3. Go for walks
4. Run on the beach with out a leash
5. Riding in the car
6. Eating yummy treats
7. Giving kisses to my family

Here are my seven favorite bloggies to visit! And you all get the award!
2. Joey
6. JB

Well I hope everyone enjoys the weekend. Jessie is going to try and keep up with my posting requests. Hopefully she keeps her promise or Pedro and I will have to make up some real help wanted signs... Mom and Leah are going away to Texas and the Grand Canyon, and Jessie has her college graduation for her associates degree. Hopefully the weather clears up and all three of my girls enjoy their weekends. I know Dad, Pedro, and I will be enjoying some pool lounging time if its sunny out. P.S. - Happy Late Memorial Day!

The Great Escape

The rain has finally decided to take a break over at our doghouse.... and you know what that means! Walks! Pedro and I finally got to get out of the house and go patrol our neighborhood after a long week of being cooped up.

Lets go! Lets go!

Jessie hooked up my leash and put Pedro in the backpack and we headed off. Then as soon as we had gotten out to the road Jessie turned and gasped. Pedro had decided to make a break for it and jumped right out of the backpack! Jessie couldn't believe that Pedro would even attempt to jump out of the backpack and fall about four feet to the ground. When she turned around to see if he was okay Pedro let out a little huff like he was trying to say "I'm not a baby, and I don't need to be carried in a stupid backpack". We quickly ran back into the house to ditch the backpack and grab Pedro's leash. At this point I started huffing.... I wanted to go for a walk! Not chase down backpack fleeing Chihuahua's. When we finally did start to walk Jessie wound up carrying Pedro most of the way! Silly little Chihuahua.

Once we got back Pedro and I were worn out! Luckily he wasn't hurt from his attempted escape and went to check the yard, bark at the neighbors, and remark "his" territroy. I only had two things on my mind. To cool off on the pool cover....

And take a nap! Ahhhh, this is the life.

I hope everyone has a happy Tuesday! Enjoy the rest of the week!

Happy Mothers Day

A mother is a friend, a buddy, a pal.

A mother is a person not afraid to get dirty or throw a ball.

A mother is an angel, a gift from above.

A mother is a person who is caring and full and love.

A mother is someone who shines from within.

A mother can be both strong and delicate.

To me my mother is all of the above.

Someone who I could never give enough love.

To all of the mothers out there I just want to say.

I hope you have a very loving Mothers Day.

This is a picture of my mom and I on our very first christmas together. Unfortunatley mom's head was cut off when the picture was taken. But that doesn't make my memory of it any less special. Thank you for all you've taught me over the years mom! I love you with all of my heart!

More Rain....

So its still raining here at my dog house.... Now, I don't mind if it rains too much, because I know it will eventually end. But THUNDER?!?!?!? I am terrified of thunder. Mom, Jessie, and Dad aren't quite sure why I started to become scared of thunder (I never was as a puppy) and I'm not about to pour my secret. Jessie and Dad think I was out in the yard and a big thunder or maybe lightning bolt scared me.... maybe? I'm not telling. Dad was making fun of me because I was so scared. He even called me a "pansie"!

Go outside? In this weather? Are you kidding me?

Jessie kept trying to get a lightning bolt or a big crack of thunder caught on tape, but mother nature was just not cooperating with her and the flashy thing. I don't blame mother nature, some days I can't stand the flashy thing. All she got was the pounding rain.... close the door I'm getting wet!

The weirdest thing about this crazy weather, was as soon as it came, it was gone. Jessie left for class in the worst part of the rain, and when she got to her college ( about a 7 minute drive) the sun was poking through the clouds! I hope mother nature is feeling okay because this has been one crazy week.

Rain Rain Go Away

Rain Rain Go Away

Come Again Another Day
For When The Droplets Fall From The Sky

The Roads And Sidewalks Are Not Dry

Puddles Collect On Everything

And Little Birdies Begin To Sing

But I Can Not Be Taken Out On Walks

And Help Pedro Look For Pretty Rocks

All I Can Do Is Sit And Lay

And Dream About Walking On Another Day

I has been raining non-stop for what seems like an eternity at our dog house. Saturday when Jessie and Dad took me on a walk we were lucky to find a small break in the rain. Sunday was drizzling while I was getting groomed at Petco. And now Jessie, Pedro, and I can't go on a walk today! I know the plants need rain to grow...... but it would be nice to get one warm sunny day a week to get my walk in. Plants need sun just as much as I do! All there is to do is just lay around the house. Luckly enough we just got some new toys along with many more rocks (stay tuned to Pedro's Blog for updates!).... but there isn't much room in the house to play. Oh well, maybe tomorrow will be a Walking Wednesday. I'm keeping my paws crossed!

Busy Bee

Happy Sunday everyone! I want to apologize for not posting much recently or visiting my bloggie buddies. Jessie had been really busy with school lately...... those silly humans. Its always something about work or school.... oh well.

Pedro and I did get to go to Petco today though! Mom said our nails were getting pretty long so Dad and Jessie took us to get a pedicure. Pedro had to be muzzled so he wouldn't bite the lady who cut our nails. Unfortunately..... Jessie forgot her camera and missed the Kodak moment. We also got our ears cleaned which felt really funny. I wasn't quite sure what to make of having cotton balls rubbed in my ears (which were pretty dirty) but it feels pretty nice now.

Yesterday Dad and Jessie took Pedro and I for a little walk on the beach. It had rained that morning so the beach was nice and hard to walk on. I guess the rain had upset some of the fishes because there were a lot of Skates washed up on the shore. I decided to go on a search and rescue mission but all of the fishes I found were dried up. This is what a skate looks like... its not a picture we took... because there was no camera!! But it gets the point across.

Last but not least I'd like to congratulate all of the winners from GSD's April Shower & Spring Flowers photo contest.
Fisrt: Waldo
Second: Hoppy
Third: Diego

Also my friend Anneliese is now a proud mother!!! The Dakel Princess has tons of puppy pictures up at her bloggie and they are just so sweet! Congratulations to everyone on their achievements! Have a great week!
