Mom's on vacation

Mom's on vacation. I love it when Mom is home with me! I get to help her in her office which is really cool because I can go in and out by myself. Our private porch is pretty cool. We sat outside last night and watched Ancient Aliens. Then we saw the first lightning bugs of the year. 

Yesterday, Dad drove Mom all over town so she could run errands. I didn't get to ride along. I did not like it that they left me home alone, but I behaved. I'm Deuce. I'm a good dog. Today, they went to Lowe's to get more mulch and I got to go. Then tonight I got to ride in Mom's car when she went to the end of the lane to get the mail. We usually walk down to the mailbox but Mom worked in the yard for hours today and she was tired. 

Tomorrow Mom and Dad are doing something called "making modifications" to the patio furniture. I don't think I like the sound of that but I'll have to wait and see what happens. 

I heard Mom and Dad talking about taking me to the river next week. I love the river! I hope we get to go. I'll get to go swimming if we do. I love to swim! Mom gets in with me and that's a lot of fun! Later on in the week, we're all going for a long ride again for something called a "wine run." I don't know what that is, either. Guess I'll find out when we go. 

It's fun doing special things when Mom is home with me and Dad but I'm bushed. I think I'm going to go to bed. I can sleep on Dad's pillow until I hear him coming to bed. Or maybe not. He did say his pillow smells suspiciously like a dog and I'm the only dog that lives here. He'll know it was me.

Mom's been holding out on me!

How could Mom do this to me??? She came home from work last night and said she had something special for me. Now, I didn't think too much at first, but then she opened a container of icky stuff into a saucepan and cooked it. 

Boy, did it smell good! I didn't know what it was but I knew I was going to love it!

Chicken livers! OMG! Chicken livers!! They're as delicious as giblets! I love, love, love chicken livers!!

Mom asked me to be "handsome" and I was so excited I forgot how to do it. (Mom says "handsome" instead of "pretty" because I'm a guy.)

Then Dad spilled the beans. Mom could have been bringing me chicken livers for years. Organ meats are good for the wolf in me and Mom's been holding out. 

Bad Mom. Bad. Why don't you have a time-out in my crate?

On second thought, just give me another chicken liver and I'll forgive you.

It's been quiet lately

There hasn't been much going on in my world except for the rabbit under the front porch. I know it's there. I've seen it. It's a wily thing. I'd play with it but it won't come out when I'm in the yard. To be fair, I'm about ten times its size so I guess it is scared of me. 

Mom and Dad are working on putting down new flooring in the bathroom. I DO NOT LIKE THE NEW FLOOR. Mom tells me it's the same material as the old floor but it looks way different to me. Last night, after we went to bed, Mom threatened to get rubber booties and make me wear them. I didn't like the sound of that. She sounded pretty serious about it. 

Mom said the vet sent her a postcard about me. I don't like the sound of that, either. Mom said I was going to get needles again so I'd better prepare myself. Has it been a year already? 

Spring is really here. The grass turned green. Mom sprinkled grass seed on all the spots I tore up last year playing Frisbee. Now I know why Dad always throws the Frisbee up the hill in the backyard. I can't slide going uphill. Parents are tricky. 

The deer look nasty right now. Mom says the word is "scraggly." They're shedding their winter coats. Hey! So am I!! You should see Mom's face when she empties the vacuum cleaner! She says she sucks up a Lab every time. Mom loves my shiny black fur. 

I've got to strike a pose. Mom's coming at me with her cell phone and that means pictures of little 'ol me and I'm not even out of bed yet.
