Face to Face

Whike Mom was walking me this morning I met our new neighbor. A big black and white pit named Kayla. We sniffed noses. Didn't say anything cause our moms pulled us away so that we could go on with our business. Hum...man that fgirl is big and strong looking. But I'm tuff! I could take her, right?

Lady, Why are You Growling at Me?

I'm just trying to have a little fun! Come on Lady! Man, every time I try to get her to play she growls and tries to chase me. She can't catch me cause I'm too fast. She always sits under the desk while Daddy plays poker. When I want to play she gets mad. She won't let me get near her. Of course I do try to headbutt her. Jeez Lady. Look at it this way-at least if you chase me, you'll get some exercise.

I pulled a fast one on her this morning. Daddy had let Lady lick the plastic bowl he had his breakfast in. He tries to sneak her vitamin in there. I was still wearing my leash since I had just been outside. So I picked up my leash off the floor and walked around behind Lady. She didn't see me coming. Quickly I snuck up on her as she was licking the bowl. Ever so skillfully I grabbed the bowl and dashed away with it. Mom and Dad thought it was really funny. Lady just looked around as if to ask what happened. He he, man I'm good! Wait a minute, there is nothing left in the bowl! I did that sneaky move for nothing! Oh well, then Mom grabbed it away from me cause she didn't want me to chew on the plastic. Maybe next time I'll get a little food from that bowl.

Don't blame me Lady! Quit looking at me with such distain. Finders, keepers, at least till Mom grabbs it. Don't growl at me.

Nice and Warm

I love Mondays and Thursdays. That's when Mom does the laundry. She leaves the bedroom door open and I snuggle up either in the dirty clothes or in the bed. Since we live in a two story townhouse, the upstairs is always warmer than downstairs. Mom still cant figure out why there is a heating/ac vent in the laundry room so she leaves the door to it open. The laundry room is right across from the bedroom and it lets more heat in the room. Mom says it is the only time I don't pester her to go outside. I stay under all of the bed covers. Of course any other day Mom would have to remake the bed. Face it Mom, I gonna unmake the bed.Lady is too old to climb on the bed with me. She curls up in her chair. I get the big bed all to myself. Some days it pays to be cute and agile.

Stay warm.

Ha! Got Some This Time!

Remember when I said I almost got some of Mom's toast? Well I was finally able to sneak up on Dad's daughter and swipe her muffin. Ha,Ha I got the whole thing! Grabbed it before she could take any action. Needless to say she was not happy. I thought it was funny. That bananna nut muffin sure tasted good. Guess Amanda will be more careful, now. The eyes of Daisy are upon her (food). He, he.

Smacking my lips,

Foiled Again

Man, I thought I had it made. Mom was sitting at the computer and eating toast too. That's a bad idea, right? Food and computers don't mix, right? Mom made some toast for her breakfast. She put one piece on the desktop as she ate the other one. I was so slick. Since the carpet is dark brown she didn't see or hear me as I snuck over to the desk. I stood up and gingerly reached for the piece of toast. It was so inviting. I really thought I could grab it before she would see it. But, I guess she heard the toast sliding down cause she slammed her hand down on the toast. Drat! Missed again. Ha,ha, now she has to go wipe the butter off her hand. Sometimes she is just no fun! She doesn't leave her wine glass where I can get it anymore. Last time she did, I tried to drink the whole thing. She caught me after I had gotten almost half the glass down. I thought for sure that I would get away with the toast this time. Nuts! Foiled again.

We have a New Neighbor

It finally quit raining and we can now walk around without getting muddy. Somebody moved into the townhouse in front of us. Mom and Dad are not happy about it. The guy has a large black and white pit bull. Neither the dog or the owner are very friendly. Mom says this place is not really good for a dog like that. We don't really have much of a yard and the inside of the house is small. Where is this dog going to exercise? One of Mom's neighbor's down the street (who thinks I'm cute, naturally) warned Mom last week about a mean dog way down the street. This dog attacked a woman and killed her dog.But the dog owner told the police they didn't have a dog. That's weird. So naturally Mom is a little unhappy about our new neighbor. After all I like everybody and want them to see and love on me. But that big dog doesn't seem to be friendly. Hopefully Mom and I will not have a run in with that dog. I don't think Lad will worry too much cause she doesn't go outside that much. Just when I was starting to have fun.
What do ya think? Dad took this picture yesterday!
