My New Bed

Mom went yesterday to Wally World and picked me up a new bed.  I really like it.  She told me she wanted to get me a pink one but did not have it.  Blue is OK!  She is a good MOM to me and I love her very much!  Thanks MOM!

My Walk Around The Vicksburg Stadium

Started my walk passing by our next door neighbor's house with the pretty flowers and a white picket fence.

Mom had to stop and take a picture.

She said to always stop and smell the flowers!

At the top of the hill and now headed south towards the Vicksburg High School on Drummond Street.

Just passed Polk St.  See the school on the hill in front of me?

She caught me in the act...MOM!!!???  
She said this used to be part of a playground with a merry-go-round, swings and a big sliding board when she was little and was called the City Park.

Closer look of Vicksburg High School.

Got to check every freaking smell out!

Down the hill we go!

Finally at the bottom.

A new "Gator" hanger for the football players.

Walk, walk and more walking...

and made a turn and a man passed us.  You can see him up ahead.

Part of the field where they practice playing football.

Where they play and practice baseball.

Almost to the STOP sign!

 We had to turn around at the STOP sign on Lee St.

Mom took a funny picture of us!

A huge stadium light!

Whiff of this and a whiff of that!

 We passed by Loviza Lane while walking on Stadium Drive.

Another funny picture of us.

Getting ready to climb a very steep hill.

Mom looks both ways before we cross the street on Drummond Street.

OK...another side of the street with more smells!

Mom keeps taking pictures of me while I'm trying to do my business!
She also told me that when she was little this area was the City Park's Swimming pool until they built a newer  and bigger one not far away.

I really like this place...

...and got to poop one more time!

Headed north on Drummond Street.

Just turned west on National Street and almost to the house...

Thank goodness...I see our house from here!

Closer and closer and closer.

My feet or dog tired!


Hope you enjoyed walking with me around the stadium!  I always look forward to our walks.

More Family To Love Me!

Daddy Bob's daughter flew in from Santa Fe, NM and so did her...

...hubby, Ron.   

Karen, Daddy Bob, Mom and me!

Karen and Ron with Daddy Bob holding his knife that they gave him for a Birthday present on February 21st.  He turned 71 years old!

While visiting us Ron took me for a walk to help Mom out.  I told him to take me to the next block where there is another STOP sign.  I really did enjoy my walk with Ron.  He's a very cool guy!

A Sunday Walk

Mom and I just got back from walking around the Vicksburg Memorial Stadium again.  I had a blast! It is a beautiful Sunday and around 62 degrees and breezy.  I almost got intoxicated with all the smells.

When we got home Mom gave me two treats because I was a good girl and came when she told me to and peed and pooped.

I'm looking forward to our next trip around the stadium.

I'm Dog Tired

My Mom just took me for my very first long walk with her around the Vicksburg Memorial Stadium. That was the longest walk I think I have ever walked in my whole life.  I must have peed 15 times and pooped 3 times.  Never in my life have I smelled to many smells.  I saw some kids practicing baseball and they were having a good time.  The weather was sunny and in the high 50's.  

We started at the top of Drummond Street and walked two blocks to Stadium Drive and down the hill and around the back side and turned around and came back the same way we went.  Mom said the traffic is really heavy on Lee Street so that is why we did not walk all the way but would be about the same distance she said.  Next time we will walk about 4 blocks on Drummond Street going north towards town and then turn around and come back and either way we go will be a 30 minute walk.

I'm looking forward to going again with her and she said I should sleep really well tonight.

I was happy to get home and drink some water and now I'm resting on the couch pillows.  Whew!!!

Dog Treats For Me!

Mom picked me up some new dog treats yesterday and I really like them.  I have never had PUP CORN before and it's shaped like a dog like me!  She also got a 3-pack of rawhide bones for me to chew on.  I just love to chew on things and this will help one of my bad habits.  When I came to my new Mom's house she brought my black blanket with me and it was full of holes.  I don't know why I have to chew so much but this will really help me.  

She took a picture of me last night in Daddy Bob's lap yawning my head off.  WOW, do I have a long tongue!  I also need cataract surgery one day on my left eye as you can see here it is much bigger.  I can see out of of OK for now.  

Safe in Daddy Bob's lap!

Look Who's Scared of Thunder!

Mom and Daddy Bob know NOW that I am definitely scared of thunder and I barked my head off today when the bad storm came.

It has stopped for now and hopefully all gone because I was running back and forth from the front door to the back door walking my legs off and barking all the way.

Mom petted me and said everything was going to be OK - I guess I needed that and I should sleep good tonight after a very stressful day for a scary dog like me!

Limping Some

This morning when I went out to use the bathroom I was having a little problem limping on my back right hind foot.  Don't know what is going on but Mom is watching it for me.

I was closed up most of the day because she had to take Daddy Bob to St. Dominic's Hospital for an appointment.  They got back around 5:00 p.m.

She took me out and went to the STOP sign and did my business.  I'm not limping no more.  Maybe I'm getting arthritis in my foot.

This weekend will be good because they are staying home all day to play with me.  Have a great weekend everyone!

One of my bones I love to chew on.

Mom and me in the backyard by the pine tree.

Morning Walk

Me at the STOP sign.

Mommy Marian, took me out this morning, like she does every morning, but this time when I went to the STOP sign to do my business...(I don't know why I go to this spot all the time...I guess it means to STOP and do my business here)...anyway, I saw this cute black and white fluffy dog in our next door neighbor's yard by the driveway sniffing around.  I did not bark not one time to see what it would do and just stared away.  It stared back and did not bark at me and then turned and ran down the street. That is the first time I have ever seen this particular dog in my neighborhood.  We do have dogs across the street that barks every time I go out but one is behind a fence and the other one I cannot see because it's behind a tall wooden fence.

I just love this ramp to walk up and down!

Can't wait to get inside so Mom can give me my "good girl" treat!

Last night I posed with Daddy Bob to take a picture with him.  I really like him and he picks me up so I can lay in his lap and watch TV.

Me posing with Daddy Bob!

I especially love to sit on the couch and lay on the pillows.  That is my favorite spot of all.

Mom told me that she will be posting some pictures today on my blog so I hope you will enjoy them.

Me up close and loving the soft pillows!
