Meeting the Uncle

I got to meet Mom's Uncle Dick last night. Mom said we were going for a ride and I didn't like the sound of that. "Rides" end up at the vet's office and I say NO to the vet and his sharp needles. 

Then Mom let me ride in her car! In her car! Not the truck, but in her car! I was so excited I almost peed but I caught myself in time. If I have an oops in her car, I'll never get to ride in it again. 

Uncle Dick only lives about a mile away. Mom says this coming summer we can walk down. That sounds like fun, too. Anyway, we got to Uncle Dick's in no time at all. 

Uncle Dick looks pretty stern, and his voice is sorta gruff, but I knew right away he's a real softie inside. He picked me up and held me on his lap while he and Mom talked about my grandma. Something is going on there. They were both sad. I need more intel to figure it out. 

We didn't stay long. I got to walk around Uncle Dick's yard for a bit. I left him a little present and I don't know why Mom thought that was funny. I really had to go! Then Mom drove us home. I was pretty tired so I took a nap before bedtime, then we went to bed.

C'mon, Dad

Seriously, Dad. Instead of taking my picture you could tell Mom to stop working on the cover for Doors of Time and tell her it's my lunch time. 

You might think I'm so handsome lying here, patiently waiting, but I'm HUNGRY!

What gives?

This will NOT do. The cat was sleeping in my day bed again. I don't like this at all. 

Two weeks, buddy. Just give me two more weeks and I might be bigger than you, and you'd better watch it. That's MY day bed. 

Two weeks. You hear me, cat?

Good/bad idea

Mom's unhappy with me. I just want to be close to her but she says under her computer chair is too close. How can I be too close? What if she moves and I don't know it? 

She told me I WOULD know it if she moved her chair, and I WOULD NOT like it. She sounded rather stern when she told me that. I wonder why? 

Mom wouldn't really forget I'm down here and roll over top of me....would she?

This might not be a good idea, after all.

It's a sad thing

I had to do a little jail time again this evening, but at least they put my food bowl in with me. And it had food in it! 

But now I don't remember what happened to my puppy chow. The bowl's empty. Mom and Dad say I ate it all, but I swear I don't remember. Sure wish they'd give me more. 

I'm a growing boy and all they can say is eating to the point of busting a gut is a Lab trait. How do they know these things?

I'm so sad. I'll just lie here and hope the bowl gets refilled soon.

Afternoon naps

I love my puppy day bed. It's soooooo comfortable! 

Mom keeps it in her office because she likes to keep an eye on me. I don't mind because I like to keep an eye on her, too. Except when I'm sleeping. Then I just listen to her type. 

Mom says I'll need a bigger one soon but I don't want one. I want to learn how to sleep in her reading chair. I'm sure I can convince her it will be fine even though she says I can't. 

I'll wear her down.

Riley? Who's Riley?

I slept on the bed with Mom last evening. She was tired so she said she was going to bed early. Mom put me on the bed with her and then laughed at me when I got comfy. She said I would lead the life of Riley. 

I think this must be a good thing, but who's Riley? I'm Deuce!

I'm not a felon!

Mom says I'm a really good
boy but suddenly I'm being 
treated like a felon!

Okay, so I bit the cat's tail. I paid for that mistake.

Okay, so I had an 'oops' on the floor. It's not like it smelled bad or anything.

Okay, so I had a little temper tantrum when Mom put me on the leash.

But this thing called a TIME OUT is cruel and unusual punishment!!!

Velcro feet? What's that?

Mom says I have something called "velcro feet." 

I don't know if I should be worried or not. Mom told me about the condition after I came in from the back yard. It's got something to do with wet leaves and stuff from the yard sticking to my paws. She noticed it because the black strip on the rug in her study has little bits of leaves on it. She says it never did before so she knows it's from my paws. 

I don't think there's a thing wrong with my paws. I hope this doesn't mean another trip to the vet for a shot.

I love my ball!

My ball! MINE!

I do share it with Mom because she makes it roll so nice. Then I take it back to her and she rolls it again! It's fun!

But every so often I just get tired and need to flop down with the ball and rest. That's when Mom takes my picture.

My forever home

It's been a big day. It started out like every other day, then my forever Mom and Dad came for me. I was excited, but scared, too. Mom held me while Dad drove us home and I found out I know how to howl! 

I was so surprised when I made that noise, I looked around to see where it was coming from! Mom and Dad laughed and told me I was a good boy. 

Mom says my name is Deuce. She says "good boy" a lot to me. I wish she'd remember to say "good Deuce," but she'll catch on. 

I have my own toys now! I don't have to share any of them! I really like the ball that bounces. The sock is okay. Mom says that's for me to sleep with. I'd rather have a stuffed toy but Mom's afraid I'll chew it's eyes off and swallow them. I don't even know what she's talking about, but one day soon I'll be able to get that moose off daybed in the sunroom and find out.  

There's a cat here. I'm going to keep an eye on him because he was here first and if I get out of line, I know he'll have something to say about it. But he'd better leave my ball alone.

Mom says we're going to bed now. I'm glad because it was a very exciting day and I'm really tired.

Vet? What's a vet?

 What's a vet? What's a puppy doctor? Why? I know I'm fine.

What's that?

He's going to stick me with a what? Are you joking? 

I want to go to my forever home NOW!!
