I found my bark

Last night I was going potty before bed, and I heard a strange noise run past the driveway. My ears perked up and I let out three gruff barks. Bark Bark Bark, mommy said: "oh you found your voice it's so cute" and she gave me lots of love. I thought cute, what do you mean cute, I'm trying to protect you here lady. Because I am such a good watch dog, mommy pulled a little surprise out of her pocket and it was yummy!

What's with the spot?

So many people comment about the spot on the top of my head...well here's the story.

According to several authors of Cavalier books, the Duchess of Marlborough held a pregnant spaniel on her lap and repeatedly pressed her thumb on the bitch's head while worrying about her husband the Duke as he was away fighting in the battle of Blenheim. When the news arrived to her that her husband survived the battle, the bitch whelped her puppies and they all had the thumb print on the top of their heads, now known as the blenheim spot. Not all Cavaliers have the spot, however it is considered a desired marking.

As for ME, I proudly show my blenheim spot for all to see. Go ahead give a rub, it's very soft. But watch out when you least expect it I will give you a kiss.

Checking out International District



On my walk downtown with my mom I saw and heard some strange and wonderful things. Of course everywhere I went people had to come up and see me. Here are a couple of pictures of me in the International District on a gold statue, I think it's a dog looks scary but I'm tough and didn't let all those teeth bother me!



I also found out I'm a DUDE magnet...at least that is what moms friend said while she sat outside with me while mom went for an ice tea and cup of water for me in Starbucks. I sure like spending the day with mom at work, I hope to come back soon and often.

My snuggle buddy

video
No sound to the video, just a peaceful snuggle up to my big cousin Kong. Watch closely you will see me sneaking in a few kisses. I just love him, he is my BEST FRIEND. But don't tell my mom I said that.

Shop til you drop? How about Play til you drop...


What a day, I had been playing with my Cousin Kong running and chasing him, playing tug of war and all sorts of fun games. He even lets me win sometimes. I was making my rounds through the kitchen when all the sudden I just pooped out. Originally I was on the pillow but rolled off and jsut stayed there, to tired to even care about moving.

What do you mean...you'll be right back?

Mommy and Auntie Gail left this morning and Auntie Gail said "Be Right Back" well it's after lunch and she's still not back. Me thinks we weren't told the whole truth and nothing but the truth...in fact I heard mommy say something about an airport and Aunt Gail going to see my Aunt Diane. I may be a puppy but that sounds like a trip to me. But I'm not telling my cousin Kong. I don't want him to get depressed. I'll just keep him distracted for the next week or so.

Aunt Gail will you give my Aunt Diane a kiss for me? Tell her I love her and she needs to come up and meet me soon so I can give her lots of kisses.




Here I am keeping Kong company, he was looking a little lonely so I sat down next to him to console him.

Pee or get Peed on

I must say I much prefer to go pee than to get peed on. What your thinking? Well let me tell you a story. Me and my cousin Kong were having so much fun in the back yard I was chasing him and jumping on him, he is so much fun. Well Kong ran up to the top deck with me (not to far) behind him. He stopped to smell around and then it happened. He lifted his leg to go potty and I didn't know what was happening so I walked right under him. Oh I had pee all over my head. My mom and dad tried to stop me before it happened but I was more curious to see what was going on. Little did I know that now I had to have a bath. You know that big white tub thing that's a little cold on your pads. It's a bit scary at first but mom soaps me up real good and I kinda like that part. But when it's all over my favorite part is getting dry, first I get towel dried, and I give a little shake and then I get to run around the house and roll all over the floor. That's the best part. Guess I'll have to remember next time Kong lift his leg it isn't an invitation to check things out!

Pose Puppy Day!

Today I am driving with my dad to drop off 2 of our cats that are going to live with our friend in Oregon. So I thought I would share some PICS of me...Enjoy!

Here I am on the way to Oregon:


After my morning nap:


Here are a couple of me with my new toy from my sissy Lindsey:




Lastly I'm pretty sure I didn't fall asleep this way, dad must be messing with me:

Cat Toys are so much fun

Last night I was in the yard playing and my daddy brought out a cool toy. You can see how much fun I had with it.

Here is a picture of me when I finally caught it!

I did not want to go in the house I was having so much fun, but they tricked me...I followed that toy right up the stairs and into the house. But the fun continued once I was inside.

My 1st walk around the block followed by my 1st bath

What a fun evening, mom, dad, Auntie Gail and Kong all went for a block I made it all the way this time. It helped having Kong there, I just followed him. We peed alot, Kong did a #2. I really got tired, it was a long walk around the loop for my little legs, only once towards the end did I stop and look up to mom with my cutest pick me up look, but she said we were almost home and I could do it. And I did do it!

We got home I got a drink and passed out for about an hour, I woke up with my Auntie Gail kissing me bye bye, so while she was leaving we went outside to go potty on the grass and wave by to Kong as he was pulling away in the car.

Once inside, little to my knowledge mom pulled a fast one on me. We went into the human potty house and she put me in this white thing I've seen her get in. And then it happened, the water was turned on and it was coming closer and closer to me. I backed away but it didn't matter I soon felt a flow of warm water all over my back. And then came the shampoo. I was getting all lathered up and rinsed off. As scary as it was I didn't cry. Once I got done mom wrapped me up put me on the counter and then she pulled this loud red thing out and turned on the warm air, it was...nice. Now that I am on the floor I am running around rubbing on the floor doing speed racer being silly. Mom said I looked, felt and smelled great!

Oh Thank you Auntie Gail!

Roxy's song from being in her crate:
Rescue me
Oh take me in your arms
Rescue me
I want your tender charms

'Coz I'm lonely and I'm blue
I need you and your love too
Come on and rescue me
Come on baby and rescue me
Come on baby and rescue me
'Coz I need you, by my side
Can't you see that I'm lonely
Rescue me

You can listen to my theme song from the day Auntie Gail saved me, she did put me in her arms and now I am happily playing with my cousin Kong in his backyard and in Auntie Gail's house.

Birds are out to get me!

Sunday my papa took me outside in my big backyard and we were running and playing. Well some nasty big black birds starting to dive bomb us and papa was afraid they were gonna get me. So we stopped running and having fun...stupid birds it's my backyard! Papa said they were protecting their babies in the nests in the trees, but have you looked at me lately, i'm not likely anytime soon to be climbing trees and even if I could I would never hurt another animal. You should always be kind to all animals.

Later in the day, mom took me out back to run and play and the birds did not come out, I was having fun.

Full Sunny Day

After sleeping all night (again) mom and I cleaned house. She said I was a good helper. Then we went to lots of pet stores, I got 3 new toys at the first stop. Off to Mill Creek to Paddywhack oh that place smelled so good I wanted to eat what ever they were cooking. Mom said no I wasn't big enough, but we did buy Kong a special cookie to celebrate his 4th birthday. We went to Safeway for dinner stuff and came home.
Auntie Gail, Alexis and Kong came over and I played non stop! I ran two times around the back yard chasing daddy, and chased Kong too he is so fast. I jumped on him and he chased me around it was so much fun. Once we came indoors Kong and I got a bite of Chicken said bye bye to my Auntie Gail and went over to my bed and crashed. I am soooo tired.

My BIG day at Sound Transit


Oh what a nice surprise, my dad took me to spend the afternoon with my mom at her work. As soon as she picked me up out of the car I knew I was in for an adventure. I went up stairs in this box mom said was an elevator, it was a quick ride up and we walked back to her desk where I immediatly took a nap. I was so tired. A few people stopped by to see me even though I was napping I could still hear ooo and ahhh, and people just love my ears. They are one of my best features, one of the many. (smile)

When I woke up I went for a walk ok mom carried me, but that's only because all those big cars were scary. But once I got to the courtyard she put me down and I made a beeline for a security gaurd, I wanted to see if he could do anything about all the noise but he just said I was cute asked if I was a boy or a girl mom said a girl...he laughed and said it figures all the girls run for me.

We tried to go potty but we could not find grass anywhere, so we went into another building and up to see moms friend Michelle. She said I was so pretty...ok people your giving me a big head. But you do speak the truth.

We left and walked up a few blocks and we finally found grass! And man o man did I have to pee! I went about 4 times. We went back to moms work and she set me down to walk around the floor, that was a blast. I was running around the hall then we went back to moms area but first I ran into Brian's office and had to visit him then back out and over to see Sarah. I was down the hall when Greg came out of his office and as soon as I seen him I took off running, butt wagging and tail swinging. Greg got down on the floor I flipped over gave him my tummy. This is a pretty cool place I think I could really like it here. I will have to come back for another visit soon.

My first walk around the neighborhood

Well mom thought I needed to try out my harness and go for a walk, the harness didn't bother me much but that leash wow that was crazy all the sudden I was limited to how far I could walk or run and well that just didn't sit well with me. I tried to bit it off and that didn't work.
So mom, dad and I went for a walk, I only followed because dad was in the lead and I was trying to catch him to tell him to PICK ME UP!we made it a quarter of the way around the corner and then headed back. Not quite up to the full loop yet. And you know what? shhh, daddy picked me up, I gave him that look and he bent down and scooped me up. I am getting him trained pretty good.

Crate Training

Guess what? I go in my crate when I am tired and I lay down with one of my many friends I have pulled in there (including one of my dads dirty socks). Last night I didn't wake on once I stayed in my crate with the door open, but I stayed in there. Auntie Gail laughed when she seen that my mom had the crate on the bed. But it has to be there, my mom would get so lonely and scared if it wasn't. I help keep her relaxed which allows her to sleep better.

My cousin Kong

Last night my cousin Kong came over he is a black PUG and man is he fast! His mommy said "go Speed racer" and he took off. I had to hide under the table to stay out of the way. I am really looking forward to the day I get to run that fast without doing a face plant. Yes embarrassing, but I get to running outside and on occasion I do a face plant, but it's OK I'm sure no one has seen that.
I gave Kong a couple nose kisses, he wanted to play some he got down on his front legs butt in the air and growled a little and I backed off made me a little nervous I wasn't sure about that. I know one day I will keep up with him but right now is not the day. Mommy said he will be spending a week with us and that's fine as long as he knows where my spot on the bed is and his spot (smile).
I really liked my Auntie Gail coming to visit me, she took me outside a few times gave me lots of kisses and at one point I heard her say no no no when I pulled at her sock, but it was such a sweet whimsical sound I didn't pay any attention to her. Daddy on the other hand said NO NO NO and I stopped. I much prefer the no no no sound she made!

Made it all night long

OK well almost all night long. I slept in my crate (mom left door open, again) when I fell asleep my nose was hanging out a tiny bit and I was sleeping on one of my dads socks, I took it in there with me. It did not smell like popcorn, but I'm not really sure what that means, just heard my mom say at least it doesn't smell like popcorn. (between you and me, my parents are a little whacky) but I sure do LOVE THEM.
So back to me sleeping all night in my crate, when mom woke up I was laying just outside the door so technially not in it but I still slept all night, so you gotta give a girl a break.
Dad tokk mom to work after her appt. this morning and she locked me up in my pen, mind you it's fairly large and I do have room to run around but still "locking" me in, the nerve. I bit at the dorr and whined for a tiny bit then figured I would take a nap. Dad said he would be back in a few hours. So that was my morning, my Auntie Gail is coming over with Alexis later so I will get to play and kiss them up. (smile)

Snuggling with my mom and more

Last night I was so tired I got in my own crate by myself, mom finished watching the news but to my surprise she failed to shut the door (she must have fallen asleep) anyway I woke up at 2:00am and made a break for it...right to her face and neck and kissed her up then snuggled right back to sleep. Oh wow was that fun. We got up at 5:30 and I went potty outside, dad got up about 6:00am and took me out one more time.
After Mom left for something she called work, promising to MISS me and BE RIGHT BACK I played a bit and then I went in the bedroom and curled up on the stool by the bed. Daddy was looking all over for me but I was OK. Then my daddy took me for a long drive to pick up a cat (another one, as if they don't have enough already) but this is a boy cat and if I understand right he's just visiting Breezy for a week, I guess she needs a boyfriend whatever that is. Daddy should know all Breezy needs is ME chasing her and playing with her but whatever!
I was a very good girl in the car I liked going bye bye with my dad I hope to do it all the time so I don't get lonely missing my people.
When we got home I found a really cool stick in the yard and played with that for a while. Check out my cool picture.
