Why Is My Nose Yellow?

Why is Lady laughing at me? Mom and I went for a walk. I sniffed the flowers. I'd like to see Lady go for a walk. She won't walk five feet. So when I came back in, I had some yellow stuff on the tip of my nose. Those buttercup flowers were really pretty. I couldn't resist, so I stuck my nose in them to see what they smelled like.Anything wrong with that? So I'm curious. Hey Mom, bring me a mirror. So, there is some yellow stuff on my nose. Oh,oh- I think I'm going to sneeze! Ah choo! Where did the yellow stuff go? Mom, can I have a bath now?

Well, Look What We Found

Man, Dad was mad the other day cause he thought somebody stole his shoes and boots. Since he works in construction he gets his shoes muddy and messy sometimes. When there is a lot of rain, he sometimes has to wear boots at work to walk in the mud. He takes the muddy shoes and boots off at the front door and leaves them outside in the corner by the door.

He went outside to go to work the other day and his shoes and boots were gone! He had no shoes to wear to work! He was really mad because the boots were really expensive. He thought somebody had stolen them. That made Mom upset, too. He went back upstairs and dug out another pair of shoes to wear.

Imagine our surprise when Mom and I were walking later that morning. I saw a brown lump in the grass by the firestation. Mom and I walked over and found one of the boots. Then Mom looked around and I did my best bloodhound imitation. As Mom looked across the street we saw another couple of lumps in the grass behind a business. Mom took me back inside since I can't go across the busy street. She went back out and waited between the traffic to run across the street. Wow! She found the lost shoes and boots! Guess they were not stolen by a human but by my little boyfriends. Mom was so happy she called Dad to tell him the good news.

Just wait till I see that poodle and the spaniel again. I'll give them a piece of my mind! Just call me Daisy the crime solver!

No Fun Here

Oh well, Mom is not letting us play outside too much. It doesn't bother Lady, but I want to go out and see the boys!. There's a cute brown spaniel and a black poodle that have come to court me, but Mom won't let me play. She's no fun! I stand at the door whining, but Mom says not until the boy dog leaves. Phooey! Of course I guess we don't need any extra dogs around here. I don't think I want to me a mother yet. But, Boy I want to play! Guess I'll just have to wait a couple of more weeks. Mom will be glad. Then we can go out and run again. Till then, no fun here.

Cute Kid

Mom and I went for our afternoon walk yesterday. I noticed some kids playing around some of the houses. "Hey, look at me," I thought. Most of the time when I am walking around the people just ignore me. Humph. They just don't know what they are missing, right? So imagine my surprise when a little boy asked Mom if he could pet me. Mom said ok, so he rode his scooter over to us. That made me a little nervous. Me, nervous? But he was nice and petted me sweetly. Then his big sister came up. She had a rake with her but she put that down and petted me too. Boy, that was fun. As we walked back home I was bouncing and smiling. Too bad Lady won't walk down the street, she missed it all. Her loss, Ha!

This is Hard Work, Being Cute

Waht do you mean put it back? Do you know how hard I worked to get that big blanket off the couch? Yeah, I know, Mom, you took the big blanket of the spare bed and put it downstairs on the sofa when it was cold. Work with me a minute here, Mom. I work hard to get your attention. It isn't easy being cute. It took a lot of effort to drag that blanket over in front of the tv. Do you think I do stuff like this to annoy you? Don't answer that. I just thought Dad would laugh at the fact that I could get that thing off the couch so easily. What did you think about my special touch? You know, the one where I put my green ball which I stole from Lady, right in front of it. Cute huh? I keep telling you being cute is an art and I am an Artist!

I'm So Special!

I'm so special, I don't understand why people don't want to run over and see me. When Mom walks me I always see people in the other yards or in the street. Hey, pay attention. I'm here! What do you mean so what. Don't you know how special I am? Then of course the robins and mockingbirds ignore me too. Phooey! Hey I just saw a squirrel- aw come on Mom, let's go get em! Did you see those two terriers? Why do they always have to bark at me. They don't seem to be too nice. They act like they are better than me. Humph! I see them sometimes while I am patroling the streets. There owner always seems to be upset that they want to run after me and bark at me. Wonder why? After all I am so special. Right?
