Today I Am Stuck Inside

17 Jan

Hi there,

Yesterday was a better day because I got to go to camp and play with my friends, but today I am home along with NOTHING to do. Sure, I have toys I could play with or bones I could chew, but that is so last month. I need a new hobby (besides blogging!).

I can’t begin to tell you how boring it is to sit inside all day with nobody to play with. My humans think they are being nice by leaving the curtains open so I can see outside, but really they are just torturing me even more. I sit on the chair with my face pressed against the window wishing I was one of those lucky dogs who’s parents get to work from home all day.

Recently I have developed a love for basketballs! You know, the good old fashioned orange Wilson basketballs! It all started about a month ago when I randomly found a partially deflated basketball in the dog park. Not knowing what it is, I walked over to it and took a closer look. Once I picked it up in my mouth and started carrying it around, I knew it was the perfect toy for me. Now, I can’t say that I have developed the same bond with my Wilson basketball as Tom Hanks did in “Cast Away”, but I do enjoy shredding the crap out of it:)  Sadly, my mom recenlty threw all of the remains of my Wilson away, she says she gets sick of me always making a mess of her clean wood floors.  But guess what? Today when I came in from playing in the park with my Dad my mom had a new Wilson waiting at the top of the stairs for me!!! I was SO excited, I jumped up the stairs 3 steps at a time! It only took me about 30 minutes to get that sucker deflated enough that I could carry it around in my mouth. While I do love my Wilson basketballs, I would definitely like to get my hands (teeth) on a Wilson volleyball!! If you know of anyone that is looking to get rid of theirs, please send them my way!

Anyways, my humans should be home for lunch soon, so I better get back to doing “normal” dog things!
Have a great day,

Boulder

TGIF

15 Jan

Not sure exactly what TGIF means, but the humans say it all the time about this time of week, so I figure it must mean something good!  All I know is that tonight starts the day that my humans work for me 24/7, at least until Monday:)

Although my mom and dad went to dinner without me last night, they did come home with a nice surprise. Apparently it is called a knuckle bone (made from beef bone). It was DELISH! The man at the pet store said it should last about a month…..not for this guy! I had it in 2 pieces in about 3 hours, and was able to break a chunk off by this morning! I know, I know, I’m a champ (Or just a lab with a strong sense of chew!). Anyways, if you have chewers at home and are sick of constantly going through bones or toys, you should give these a shot!  They can be found at Petsmart, but I am sure other pet retailers would have something similar too.

I don’t think I have many big plans this weekend, I happened to overhear my mom telling my dad she would be taking me to the dog park on Sunday. Sunday?!? Sunday seems SO. FAR. AWAY! Oh well, at least it gives me some time to think about which park she is going to take me to, I just love the anticipation. Lately we have been trying out new ones, and even better is that she has been stopping at Starbucks on the way to get herself a non-fat latte (with 2 raw sugars), and myself a “puppy whip”! I have had 3 now, and I LOVE them! Something about a cup full of whipped cream that I just can’t seem to get enough of. I will say that I did not appreciate the Starbucks we went to last week only giving me a “sample” cup size of the whipped cream…sheesh, the one we went to the week before gave me a huge cup full! I guess I can’t be too greedy, I enjoyed it either way.

Do you guys have any big plans this weekend? I am thankful that the weather will finally be nice, I don’t get to play in the park as much when it is muddy, I can’t seem to understand why….

Have a great weekend!

 

A Sleepy Thursday

3 Jan

As I mentioned yesterday I was busy at camp all day, so naturally I am a bit on the lazy side today. My mom’s alarm started going off this morning around 6:20am, and no matter what I did (paw to the face, nuzzle closer, etc.) she still got up and started moving around, which of course triggered me to do the same thing…just on the off chance she was getting up to get me food or take me to the park. Wrong. She was getting up to get ready for work. Selfish, right? Our typical routine is I wake my mom up when it is still dark out, she takes me out, than she feeds me, and than I go and jump on my dad until he wakes up and takes me to play in the park! It is so nice having not only 1, but 2 humans that work for me:). I should be getting back to my nap now, have a great day!

Boulder’s tip of the day: Recently the vet said that I did not have enough of a waistline and that I should drop a few pounds (man do I wish I could talk sometimes, I would have had a few choice words for the woman that said that). Anyways, she suggested swapping out some of my DELICIOUS Blue Buffalo SALMON and OATMEAL (MY FAVORITE!!!) dog kibble with green beans. Really? Green beans? You have got to be kidding me! So being the obedient people that my humans are, we headed straight to Costco to stock up on green beans. As my mom got my dinner ready that night I watched as she put my scrumptious dog food in the bowl, and watched her RUIN it by putting these nasty green, slimy, long looking things on top. I swallowed, took a deep breath, and eased my way towards the bowl to take a look…..Who am I kidding, I was wagging my tail and barely let her finish getting my bowl ready before my snout was 4 inches deep into the goodness of dog kibble and green beans. Anyways, that was most likely more information than you needed to know, but the green beans are working! I have lost about 4 pounds in the last 2 months! If you know any canines (or humans for that matter) that need to drop a few pounds, have them sub out some of their regular food for good ole’ green beans.

My First Post…I hope I am doing this right!

Good Morning and Happy New Year! I am still not sure what all the hype is about a year ending, and a new one beginning, but I am going to try to just go with the flow. Did you all have a big celebration for NYE?  I was lucky enough to get to go to my best friend Roo’s house while the humans went to a party…I know there was food at that party, and do you think they brought us back any? No, of course not!

Anyways, I got to spend New Years Day with my friend Roo and our humans, and boy was it fun! I kept on barking at the humans to play with me, and although they did not enjoy it very much, I was enjoying it! They thought putting me on the balcony would help, nope..the bathroom, nope…I didn’t want to be quiet, I wanted to PLAY!  Turns out what I really needed was a nap! I got home around 3pm and didn’t move from my bed until about 6am today!

To my surprise Josie (my human mom) brought me to camp today! If you are not aware of doggie camp, let me give you some insight. It is this magical place that smells of pure heaven! You walk in, they let you off the leash, and I take myself to the backdoor where they release you to the yard with all the other dogs! They have an inside and outside area, but I prefer the outside because there is more room to run! Do you know how many Chuck-Its they have there?!?! A lot, and they always have an abundance of tennis balls for me to chase. I dream about camp almost everyday, and just love the people and other dogs there. My mom even says there are webcams set up so she can see me play…umm, creepy!

Well that is pretty much all I have for today, I am currently taking a break from playing with my friends to type all this, so I better get back to playing before all the tennis balls are gone.

Happy 2013!
