It's getting strange around here

There are bunches of boxes in the living room and my long walks are less frequent. We had a good one today, where I got to swim but we missed two days in a row!! These boxes are worrisome though....I wonder what is up? Mom and Dad seem stressed as well.....strange.

Hear me roar!!!

So, here I am just minding my own business, and the doorbell rings. Well, I really cannot help it but when that happens, I just go bananas. I have a very, VERY big bark...or so I have been told. How was I to know it was the POLICE!! Turns out Mom called them about some suspicious activity across the water at the park. She does not use the phone much so the first time she dialed 911 she thought she had misdialed, so she dialed again. Well, the coppers have to respond to a 911 hangup, so up to the condo they come! Woof, WOOF!! WOOF! One of them is so intimidated by little yellow me, that mom had to corral me into the back bedroom. She thought that man of the law was gonna TAZE me. HEAR ME ROAR!!!

Doe a deer.....

On our walk today, we saw something very, very cool. A deer! We were hiking in Bells Mill Park, which used to be a landfill many eons ago. Then it closed and the city of Chesapeake planted acres and acres of grass there, so now it is a super huge meadow, with the Elizabeth River and woods bordering it. They have mowed walking/jogging trails and now it is a park. What we like about Bells Mill is that no one seems to know about it, so I get to go off leash a lot! Anyway, we saw a single deer in the meadow and it just stood so very still, just staring at us, like a statue! Then it flashed its white tail and it was gone in a flash! I wanted to chase it, of course, but dad hollered at me and I came back, because I am just so well behaved.

Beach Dog!

I thought we were just going for a normal "long walk." That's what my folks call it when they put on my auto restraint vest, we go for a ride, get to an interesting destination, and walk a couple of miles: "the long walk." But, the car ride was a bit longer than usual and when we arrived, well, I could just smell the salt air!! We went to the beach!! The beach is my absolute favorite place!! I love swimming, and running in the sand and smelling all the different smells! So, off comes the leash and away I go, flying into the water, and yes...I am swimming!!! I think that this is Heaven! We walked about a mile and a half. It was cool on the beach, about 65 degrees, which made me very frisky. Then we stopped at McDonalds for a cheeseburger because being outside makes you hungry. I slept all the way home. I am a happy, happy doggie!

The Furminator

I was hoping that no one would notice, but I have been shedding for about a week now. I do this a couple of times a year but the "springtime shed" is the pits. Even when someone so much as touches me, my fur comes out by the handful. This is my super warm "winter coat" that I am losing. My mom has been working on me with something called The Furminator. It kind of looks like a comb, but it has a razor in it and my hair just peels off! I'll bet she has furminated about 10 pounds of my pelage!! That is a fancy word for fur! She needs to be very careful or I will get razor burn.

I am moving

I guess it is going to happen. The folks have sold the condo and bought a little house. I have not seen it yet, but they said it is on a golf course. I am not sure what that means but I am thinking that my yard will be freakin' huge! No more elevators!! Yippee!!
