Valentine's Day

Hi friends!

Yesterday was a very important holiday; it was Valentine's Day! Valentine's Day is a dumb human holiday that remembers the day a naked baby named Cupid flew around shooting arrows in people's hearts. I'm not sure why that didn't kill them, but it didn't and they fell in love instead. To celebrate, humans give each other flowers and chocolate. That's why it's a dumb holiday...I'm not allowed to eat chocolate! Not sure why no flowers arrived though.

Anyway, it's also a holiday where you're supposed to tell important people you love them and there's no one more important than my mommy! She made a very special day for me and I made it special for her. I woke her up early whining to get out of my crate. Since it was her day off, she really liked that. Then she asked if I'd like to go on an adventure and I said, "Yes Mommy! There's nothing I love more in the world!" Of course, it just sounded like "Bark! Bark! Bark!" Luckily, my mommy speaks dog, so she knew what I meant. Since the snow was finally starting to melt and it wasn't so super cold, we went on our long W-A-L-K route! Best adventure ever! I missed all my smells!

We came home and snuggled on the couch for a bit. Then Mom had to run a few errands. I didn't like that, but she was home soon and so we snuggled on the couch the rest of the day!

I love snuggling with Mom every day!

I did get mad because Dad made Mom go out to dinner and left me forever. But when they came home, they let me sleep in the big bed.

Hi friends!

I have lots to catch up on, so hang on! This has been the best and worst time ever.

Worst: Dad got the flu
Best: He snuggled with me while Mom was at that work place

Worst: Mom did get a cold and had a hard time getting better
Best: That meant she snuggled with me lots on the couch

Worst: It keeps snowing
Best: I'm getting REALLY good at writing my name in the snow!

 I can write my name like I do in cards....

Or in a more "traditional" sense. Totally looks like "Mister," right?

Sometimes I feel like someone's watching me while I'm on a W-A-L-K

Worst: The Thing has moved back to town
Best: He's finally out of MY house and in his own place!

I helped The Thing move by eating his snack

He didn't notice

We both watched for our daddies to come through the door

And I always come when called!

Yes, friends. Mom and Dad started off the year sick and Mom is finally healthy after a whole month! She was very excited the first weekend she didn't go to the walk-in clinic. She was sick again 2 days later! BOL!

Then, Uncle R and The Thing came and stayed a whole entire week. It actually wasn't too awful. I was glad to have someone home while Mom and Dad were at the work place. And The Thing didn't bother me too much to play. I did have to bark at him sometimes when he got too rowdy. I'm kinda the fun police like that.  The Thing now has an apartment in town with Uncle R, so that's nice for Grandma. But she better not give him any of my treats!

While The Thing was here, I gave him begging lessons

Then you make with the sad eyes...

You don't see anything, Mom.

Finally, it's been very cold and snowy and I really hate it. The ice and snow doesn't feel good on my paws and since my mom is lazy forgot hasn't bought me booties yet, I have to find cleared sections to walk on. Even if that's in the road! Luckily the schools have all been out, so traffic hasn't been bad.

Mom calls this my "Coke nose." All I know is my nose is super cold now!

And even though he brought The Thing with him, I'm kinda glad to have Uncle R back. He gives AMAZING butt scratches!
