Pawty at Miss Asta’s House.

Miss Asta and her hu-mans are hafing a pawty to take their minds off that fery nasty hurricane.

I have been invited, so I put on my Super Dog suit and I’m flying on ofer to join in the funballs in New Yawk City. I gotta leafe right now so the wind doesn’t get too rough for me to land on Asta’s roof. See you all at Asta’s house¬† fery soon.

Miss Asta – I stole Mumma’s Grain Wafes while she was fery busy wif her studies, so there will be some fur us all. ūüôā

DPS Needed

The humans hafe been hiding some of their geocache fings.  On Furdsday they would not take me because the hu-mans fink that some parts of the new trail for the evil two-wheelers is not good for doggies. Hu-Dad finks there be too many peoples what go on that part of the trail.

Hu-Mum sayed that I was lucky I did not go, because it was fery fery cold. So cold that she telled hu-Dad  that she hafes to go back to the van before she turns blue.  I nearly BOL when Mumma telled me that, because she would look fery fery funny indeed ifs she was the same colour as me. I am a blue dog for sure.

Frow the Frisbee Dad, just hurry up and frow it


I am zooming fery fast .....


That dot is me. I can fly fery high to catch my Frisbee

The hu-mans went to a different part of the trail today, so they decided I could come wif them.  We had a walkies for an hour. The hu-mans hided one of their geocache fingies, and I hafed a turn playing Frisbee on the beach. Today it was lubly and sunny, so Mumma did not turn blue. Which is a fery good fing, because it would be fery hard for me not to BOL ifs she did turn blue.

Me & Mumma waiting for Dad. He is in the bushes hiding the geocache fingie.

I tried to tell the hu-mans that they don’t need a GPS, because I could just tell them where to put the geocache fingies.  A Dog Positioning System would be fery much better at finding places to hid fings. Us doggies are good at that. I hided my favourite jolly ball at Tylar & Buddy’s house a long time ago & their hu-mans just finded it this week. 

Actually ‚Äď I fink I should not have hided it SOOooo well, because I hafe not been able to play with it when it was at Tylar & Buddy‚Äôs house………

My Jolly Ball is BACK!!!


Editor’s note: There will be a barkday blog with cake & gift photos¬†coming up some time, but Ruger made his camera assistant take so many photos that it will take her¬†some time to get them sorted.

I have a complaint. The service at my accommodations is fery unsatisfactory these days. One of my blog pals Bassa made some commets about her hotel a few days ago, and I have to say that since I read her blog, I have become aware of some failings in my own hotel.

It is fery extremely cold here for starters. The hu-mans even expect me to go out and leave my pee mails when there is frost on the ground.

And then the hu-Mum had the audacity to ask me to ‚Äėsit‚Äô on that fery freezing¬† grass, just so as she could take a pickture of it. ¬†Needless to say, I did not oblige. I did lower my butt about 1 centimetre, just to show that I had heard. I mean, I am a most obedient dog after all.

And of course I raced back inside to sit by the warm thing as fast as I could.

The hu-Mum says I should quit whinging about the cold. If I lived with my Marie-Momma and my sister & my nephew & nieces and the other eleventy gazillion animals at their house, she said I might hafe a reason to feel cold then. That’s because they hafe the snows at their house. Or if I lived with Coco & Geri’s humans, like new baby pup Mika and the other four animals, I could grumble. Because they hafe snows at their house.


Geri the Spaniel. Her hu-mum taked her pickture.

Mika be the new puppy at Geri's house. Her mumma taked this boootiful pickture.

The other complaint is that the cold efen gets me inside. That is because my hu-Mum has not been here for a lot of days. She hafes to go to that work place eferyday because sombudy else hafed a family e-mer-jen-see.  So I hafe no-one to snuggle beside, and no-one to feed the warm fing to keep the flames going, and no one to put my blankie ofer me during the daytimes. It is fery unsatisfactory indeed. I am an Australian dog after all, so I really prefer warmer climates.

Mumma just says I hafe to ‚Äėtoughen up‚Äô because we are going to visit my Marie-Mumma fery, fery soon. ¬†In fact we should be driving there right this minute. But we aren‚Äôt . The hu-mans are sad. I am a bit in two minds myself. I am not sure if I will like the cold.

I do confess though, the pickture of my nephew Dude playing in the snow looks kind of fun.  So maybe I will like it.  I am fery looking forward to playing wif Dude & all my other family, that is for sure.  And Marie-Mumma makes fery delicious nom noms for pups to eat. So I will certainly like that. So I don’t fink I will hafe any complaints about the service at Marie-Mumma’s house.

Fis is my family playing in the snow. My Marie-Mumma taked the pickture.

It is another miracle. The hu-mans remember how to frow my Frisbee!!!!

The beach

 They went to the beach to look at one of their geocache fingies because some ofer peoples could not find it. It was not there because the hu-mans putted it too close to the beach and it got washed away by the big waves.  So it was a bad fing for the geocache, but a good fing for me that we goed to the beach to look for it.   And a fery good fing that the hu-mans packed my Frisbee and remembered how to frow it.

I can catch a high flying Frisbee. ūüôā


I can run fery fast.


Nearly back to my hu-Dad.

There was no ofer doggies there, so I got to chase my Frisbee lots of times until I was all puffed out. It was a fery nice sunny day when we started to go to the beach, but then it got all cloudy and rainy. But we was having a snooze back in the van by then. So it was the best  day for a most handsome pup like me.

I feel fery proud of my hu-mans today. They actually finally remembered how to go for walkies!!!

First we¬†went to visit Grandma Liz & Cousin Diva for lunch. I like going to visit Grandma fery much¬†– she is more generous to us pups than MY stingey hu-mans are. She is fery¬†easily swayed by a pair of shiney brown eyes. But she did try to feed me lettuce. I do like my vegies, but that green leafy stuff doesn’t really count as a proper vegie.¬† I ate it, just to be polite of course.¬† I hafe fery good manners you know. Then I spat it out later when she wasn’t looking.¬†

 Here is a pickture of Cousin Diva protecting her couch from me.


After we hung out for a bit, we went for a short stroll around the lagoon & along the beach.  Here are some ducks on the pond. There were swans too.



I was quite surprised that my hu-mans remembered the way. They did pretty well, apart from when Mumma asked hu-Dad to stop letting me eat fings what I found on the beach. I really fought she was a bit of a spoil-sport.¬†Eat smelly stuffs¬†is one of the fings what us pups do when we go to the beach. Oh well. I guess I didn’t really want the puking bug again.

Here are some picktures of handsome me posing.

I hafe not been here for a few days because my secretary hafe been away wif hu-Dad for him to do some Red Cross trainings. I hafe been at …. the kennel…..

It’s pretty fun there. All us doggies get to go walkies on the beach a whole lot of times each day and there is all kinds of good fings¬† to smell.¬† Still, I was fery happy to see my hu-Mum when she picked me up last night.

But about free o’clock this morning I started feeling not so good. In fact,I feeled¬†so bad that I puked all over the couch. Usually when I feel like puking I make such a pawformance about it, that the hu-mans hafe time to make me go in the kitchen. But not last night. I just puked. ¬†Then I got the fery fery fery fery bad sneezes.

¬† About this time Mumma got to wondering if I was ok.¬† (‘Cause we all know that us pups puke some times and there’s nofing much to worry about. It’s just a fing what pups do. )¬† But the sneezing was something else.¬†It was so bad that¬†I efen scritched my own nose wif my claw. ¬†So in the end Mumma ringed Dr Sonia even though it was o’sleep oclock time.¬† Dr Sonia talked to Mumma for a bit and they watched me & hu-Dad tried some fings like seeing if I still wanted to eat.¬† In the end I stopped sneezing¬†and¬†Dr Sonia & Mumma decided that I was not hafing an ‘allergic reaction.’¬† So we all went back to sleep.

Well, not Mumma because she was fery awake by this time.¬† Bu hu-Dad & me did.¬† And I don’t know about Dr Sonia – depends if her little hu-boy was sleeping or wanted some nom noms I guess.

But Mumma did go back to sleep later when hu-Dad got up & hafed his shower.  And I did some more puking while Mumma was sleeping. She says she does not know how one doggie can make so much puke and can get it on efery single blankie & cover on the bed.  So after 3 more times of puking Mumma decided enuf is enuf and she called Dr John, seeing as it was waking up time for hu-mans by now.  I hafe to say, I fink that was a fery fine idea Рbecause I was a bit ofer the puking myself too.  I mean, I hafed not efen chewed any grass.

So after the plumber-mans left from fixing the broken hot water cylinder (somefing when wrong wif it while the hu-mans were away)¬† Mumma & I went to see Dr John.¬† Dr Sonia is my fery best vet in the whole wide world, but she does not work on the week day times any more because she hafe got her own little hu-boy now. So I hafe to see Dr John if it is day times. I don’t like man vets so much. But Dr John hafed some girl vet students observing him today, so I was on my bestest behaviour for being at the vet. I did not efen try to chomp Dr John when he put the thermometer —- well, efery pup knows where ……¬† I only put my ears back.¬†¬† And I didn’t efen mind too much when Dr John stabbed me wif the needle for the medicine to stop me puking. Mumma says I really can’t be feeling too good if I did not hafe enuf energy to try to chomp Dr John.¬†Dr John just finked I was trying to be good because there was some girl vets watching. ¬†The girl vets finked¬†I hafe fery nice fur, so I fink I might let them be my friends.

Dr John says maybe I have a ‘gastro’ bug and that likely the sneezing was¬†I somehow got some of the puke back up my nose.¬†¬†He telled Mumma that I can’t hafe any nom noms today. To be pawfectly honest, I don’t much mind because I don’t feel much like eating nom noms anyways.¬† And tomorrow I get to hafe chicken and¬†tasty fings¬†like that.¬† I fink I will feel better by tomorrow.¬†¬†

Here is a pickture of me feeling bad.
