Today is my six month birthday. My mom is kinda weepy because she says I am growing up too fast. But, a dog has to do what a dog has to do.
I've had some big adventures and milestones since moving here. I've mastered my invisible fence - didn't take long: this boy doesn't go for being shocked, nor do I care for the warning beep. Besides, I like my yard and don't want to leave it. It was great getting off the tie out and being able to run around on my own. Freedom!
I also spent six nights on my own at Animal Campus, while my mom & dad went to Branson for a vacation. I was a little unsure about this whole sleepover business, but now I sit by the back door at home waiting to go back! It was awesome and I got all "A's" on my report card. My mom tricked me the other day when she said to me, "bye, bye in the car." I thought she meant I was going back to Animal Campus. Oh no, she took me to the vet instead! Say what????? Oh, it's nice and all, but not my favorite. The Dr. always announces my weight so every one can hear - 60 pounds this last time. "He's a big one," she said. Now really. On the bright side, I am finally over the mange and am off medication.
Do you think I look fat in this picture??????
I am feeling a bit braggadocio about my mad "shake/other paw" skills. I do it. all. the. time. I'm a bit of a show off, lol. I also have learned "don't touch" and "wait" - those aren't as much fun, but I comply.
I like to keep busy with fall yard clean up. Today I grabbed a plastic pot.
I am also helping out with digging up the annuals.
Coming up, I am looking forward to seeing my human sister, "Baby Bluebird" in about four weeks. I hope she still likes me. We only met once! (But, I think I am a pretty lovable guy.) Sometimes we "FaceTime" on the phone and I like to kiss the phone when I hear her voice. Virginia Tech is a long way from Wisconsin.
That's it for me today - time to go outside and enjoy some six month birthday fun!
