Pawsin' With Palmer: It's My Six Month Birthday!

Hey y'all - Palmer here!  I can't believe how long it's been since my last (and only!) post.  All I can say about that is I've been busy getting used to my new home and family.

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.  Woot!  Woof!

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!

  1. Last picture, looks like it might be nap time, I know how that feels.
    Have a happy sixth month birthday.

  2. Such a cutie! Palmer reminds me a lot of my dog Sasha. I remember when Sasha was puppy digging all my flowers up in the yard too; even rose bushes. I thought she wouldn't bother them because of the thorns. Apparently it didn't matter!! LOL

  3. Palmer is getting so big. He is just adorable and love his eyebrows. He is marked so pretty. Glad he did well on his little vacation at the doggie day care! Happy 6 months Palmer!

  4. Wow, what a sweet heart. He is doing so well. I am so happy for you all.
    Happy Birthday to him. :-)

  5. Palmer is a great blogger. Loved hearing is past adventures. Janice

  6. Such a sweet pup.
    Thanks so much for sharing at AMAZE ME MONDAY.

  7. Hi Jane, I missed Palmer's birthday. He is a cutie pie and growing very fast. Isn't it nice when they are so much help around the yard. What would we do without someone with all that love and cuteness?..Happy Birthday, Palmer..Judy
