Why Rosco is Moving Out...

Yesterday, in my 10 Honest Things

I mentioned that Rosco is moving out...

Some of you asked me why...
Rosco's Mom is my human sister...His Dad has been
in the Army for 3 yrs & came home from Iraq in January...
Rosco & his Mom stayed with us while his Dad was gone...
When his Dad came home, he had to stay in Georgia until he
was out of the Army completely...And, he is home now...

So Rosco & his Mom & Dad are moving into their
new house this weekend...

I will miss Rosco alot...But they won't be living far away
so I will get to see him all the time...

Just wanted everyone to know that Rosco moving out
is really Good News...He will finally be in his own home
with his Mom & Dad & they will all be together again...

What could be better...

10 Honest Things & An Award...

A couple days ago, My Friend Stella tagged
me to do the
10 Honest Things Game...

So, here I go...

1. As you all know...I LOVE to chase Squirells...Someday I will catch one...
2. I'm very protective of my Mom...I really don't like any other dog by her...

3. I always grab a toy & beat it up while my Mom makes my dinner...I don't know why...It's just something I do...

4. Sometimes I chew on stuff I know I'm not suppose to have...When I do my Mom always trades me a treat for what I have...Smart, Huh??

5. I hate baths...They make me cold...

6. I love to watch TV...I love to watch Animal Planet & Sponge Bob...

7. When my Mom helps me with my Blog, I always lay on the floor right next to her...

8. When my Mom wants me to do something, sometimes I pretend I don't know what she wants...Especially if I don't want to do it...

9. I won't look at the camera when my Mom tries to take a picture...

10. I love Rosco, and I'm gonna miss him when he moves out...He is probably moving this weekend...

Yard Work...

OK...So we got the Memory Card...
We went out to do some Yard Work Today...
Surveying the job...
Lots of work to do...
The fence blew down during the winter...
There is alot of winter damage out here...
Here's a video of me deciding where to start work...


Yard Work...Look at all the Sticks from Abby on Vimeo.
My leash makes it hard to work...
You might wonder why my Mom has to keep me on
the leash in the yard...
Here's why...The fences are all gone & there is a big
cliff right behind the house...
My Dad promised he would put up a fence really soon...

Well, they are BBQ'ing ribs out on the deck...

That sounds like fun...I think I'll join them...

An Award & the Camera is Officially Broke...

I got this Award from my Good Friend
Thank You, Daisy!!!
***************************

My Mom took me out for a little walk today & the
camera officially stopped working...

She was lucky enough to get a couple pictures before
it stopped completely...

Here I am exploring the yard...
There are alot of fresh smells & crunchy leaves
& buggies trying to look for food...

And, I also found this...

Our first Wild Spring Flower...
I don't know what it's called, but it sure is
pretty & its proof that Spring is here...Yay!!!

My Mom knew the camera was not working right so
she has ordered another one that is on it's way...

We should have it soon...

So we'll show you more of our New Spring stuff then...

1st Blogoversary & 2nd Date with Scruff...

Ok, So it's My 1st Blogoversary...

I can't believe it's been a whole year...

I was gonna take you for a walk around my neighborhood,
but just as me & my Mom started our walk, the
camera battery ran out...

So, we will be taking you on a tour of the
neighborhood in my next post...
Since we can't tour my neighborhood, I thought I
would tell you how I started Blogging...

One day a little over a year ago, my Mom was watching some morning TV show & she heard about this Golden Retriever named Max who has a Blog...My Mom was thinking "What can a dog have to Blog about??"....

Well she went over & read Max's Blog...She just loved it &
wanted to see if she could find any other Dogs that Blog...

So she Googled "Dogs with Blogs"...Guess what she found...

Yep, she found you guys...The best bunch of
Blogging Doggies & Kitties & Hammies in the world...

I have made sooo many wonderful friends here...
You've made me laugh & cry & think &
I've learned sooo much from all of you...

I Love You all...And, I'm sooo Proud & Happy to be
a part of Dogs With Blogs...

Thanks for making my 1st Blogging Year Sooo Much Fun!!!

********************************
And, speaking of fun...Guess where I went??

Scruff took me on a 2nd Date...

He picked me up in his private plane & we went to PARIS...

Do you believe it???
(Picture by Scruff)

It was sooo much fun...
We went to the Eiffel Tower &
ate Ice Cream & they rolled out the
Red Carpet for us at the Louvre...

Stop by Scruff's Blog for more pictures...

WARNING...& I got some Awards...



OK...For your own good...

DO NOT let your Mom anywhere around either
of these things...

If she finds those books...She will ignore you
for DAYS!!!

You will be lucky if she feeds you...

And, that movie...

OMdoG...If you sit next to her when
she watches it, she will hug you 'til you
think you can't breath...

You will actually wish she was reading the
stupid book...

I'm sooo glad she is almost done with
those books...And, she took the movie
out of the Movie Player thing...

**************************
And, while she has been ignoring me for
books & watching movies...

My Good Friend, Mango the Maltese gave
all his friends these Awards...
He asked me to stop by &
pick mine up...

So here they are...




Thank You, Mango...


Anyway...My Mom says she is gonna
help me catch up with everybody
tomorrow morning...
I'll believe it when I see it...

Hi, Everybody...I'm still here...


I haven't been around much lately...

My Mom has been reading this book she says she CAN'T put down..

Sure she can...All she has to do is

PUT IT DOWN...

There are about 4 of these books that go together...

She is almost done & then she will help me catch up with everybody...

Sorry...She just needs to get her priorities straight...
