Good to be back...'s been a while since I got to post a new blog for everydoggy out there. My mom's computer has been 'on the fritz' as she likes to say. After a week of harassing her to get it fixed so that I could see what all of my friends were up to, she FINALLY dedicated some time to finding the problem and she was able to fix it. (See, our humans come in handy sometimes.)

So how are all of my doggy blogging buddies out there? Is the weather starting to get hot where you live? It's already 90 degrees here in Austin! Yesterday my Mom took me out to play with my friend Ellie (the cutest Basset, Beagle, Lab mix you've ever seen) but it was so hot out there that I didn't want to run around. I tried for a few minutes, but then decided that Ellie and I were better off digging a hole in the nice cool dirt under the big oak tree. We just played Bitey-Face under there for a while until Mom decided it was time to go inside, get a drink and cool off. I said bye to Ellie and her dad, Jordan and went inside to take a nap on the tile floor by the refrigerator.

It got very hot very quick. Just last week, it was perfect weather to run around in the park, get muddy, and play some football.

...a new record! Muddy within the first 2 minutes.

...check out this cool action shot Mom took while I was pouncing on my training dummy.

Dad made me smile so he could get a picture of me with the Cowboys football.

My humans are big football fans, so I have a feeling I'll be watching a few practices of our local school team at the park and watching a bunch of games on TV with them. Mom and Dad always fight over what team they think I like: Dad is a Cowboys fan and Mom likes the NY Giants (she grew up in NYC). They truth is, I don't really care! A bunch of people running around with a ball and wrestling with each other just looks like fun to me. Do you think the NFL would recognize an all-doggy football team? Who's up for it?

Until next time...Take care!

The weather is starting to get hot here too... except today. The other day it was about 30 Celsius, and yesterday about 10, and today 20. So we've got some major temperature changes here...

I love the pictures! That's a great action shot of you pouncing on the ball.

Dear Orion,

Please tell your mom to keep a close eye on your skin with the sensation harness she uses to walk you. They can chafe real bad under the arm.

I'm sure you're getting to be a challenge to control for that "nice" walk your sweet mom wants to take you on. Just remind her you're still a puppy and will be for the next year and a half. Anything that's worth it always takes time. Before you know it all you'll need is a nice buckle collar at your next.

I know she realizes the world is a very exciting place for you. With the amazing nose and hunting blood running through your adorable body, who wants to be confined by a 6 foot leash.

Hang in there. Your day will come. Learn your lessons well and you'll have all the freedom she can give you.
