The Return

Hi everyone. My mom and I are sorry for leaving you hanging for a while. After we got back from Arizona, some unfortunate events took place (one after the other after the other) and they left us all sad and recovering for a while. But we are fine now and I'm happy to have the chance to fill you guys in on all the exciting stuff that has been going on, too. Arizona was really fun, and REALLY HOT!!! We went to Tucson first to see my great grandma. She thought I was really sweet (of course, I was on my best behavior) and she wanted to give me treats all the time. My parents took me to a really neat doggie park where I met a bunch of really cool guys. We ran around for a long time until they had to leave. Then I played some football until another cool dog came to the park to have fun. She didn't really want to run around though, but we sat next to each other and chewed on a stick for a while. I think those AZ sticks taste pretty good; they've got a distinctive taste--maybe a little more like nuts and berries. Haha! After a few days there, we went to Phoenix to visit my Aunt Barbara and her two doggie sons and a doggie daughter. She's really cool!!! She sat outside with Mom and I for a while and played fetch and then we played an awesome game of 'catch me!' We swam in the pool for a little bit, but don't think I like it when I can't touch the bottom of the pool. I'm afraid I might sink! I was soooooo tired by the end of the night that I fell asleep early and slept all through the night. I really wanted to stay there longer, but we had to get moving. So back to Tuscon we went to spend our last night and then was the loooong drive home. Mom said I was a really good boy. They let me have the entire back of the car to myself (except when Mom crept back there for a nap on the ride home.) It was a fun trip and I can't wait to go back. I have a bunch of pictures to show you, but that'll have to wait until another day. For now though, here's on that my Mom wants to show you so that you can see how much I've grown!
Wow...I really am getting to be a big boy!

Since then, something else has happened. Guess what!? We bought a new house! We're still living at our old place with a lot of stuff in boxes, but we're moving on the 17th. I'm so excited because there's so much more room for all of us! The house is much bigger and the yard is almost an acre. Plenty of room for fetch, and chase, and digging and for swimming in a little kiddie pool. There's even a wet weather creek on the back of our yard that has water in it during certain times of the year. I haven't seen it yet, so it still sounds to good to be true, but my mom told me it has all of that and more. I can't wait. How much longer until the 17th anyway? Mom and Dad also told me that there might be another surprise a little while after we move in, but they wont tell me what!!! What do you think it could be? Any ideas?

Well there's still a little more to tell, but I'll leave that until next time. I wouldn't want to give you labby news overload! How have you guys been? I miss you all!

Until next time!
