My Thanks on Thanksgiving

It’s Thanksgiving Day!

Of course, I’m thankful for the plate of food I’ll have later today – Mom & Dad always give me a small plate with some turkey, mashed potatoes and veggies. For dessert, I’ll have a Greenie! But there are some more serious things I’m thankful for:

1. Animal Shelters. I was in two before finding my Mom & Dad – Saving Grace and the Oregon Humane Society. I’m thankful there were kind people, a warm place to stay, and some yummy food to keep me safe and healthy until I found them. I know not all pets are this lucky.

2. My cozy beds. Yes, I have multiple beds – the one Mom & Dad purchased for me, theirs, and the couch. Sometimes I let Mom & Dad on the latter two, but rarely.

3. Dirty dishes! Sometimes I get to lick the plates before they are washed – yum!!!

4. My Dad ~ he takes me on walks, plays with me at the beach, and plays “tug” in the morning when I get bored if there’s no Animal Planet on TV.

5. My Mom ~ she found me at OHS, buys me yummy treats and keeps me in toys, as I tend to destroy them.

Happy Thanksgiving to all my 4-legged friends out there! You 2-legged ones as well!

See How Tough I Look!

Check me out! Do I not look amazingly tough! Oh yeah - I got tired of hearing, "Oh, what a cute puppy!" when left alone in the truck, so I googled "tough looking dog expressions" and practiced my "look".  Now when I wait in the truck for Mom & Dad, I sit there with this menacing stare.  Oh yeah, I am rockim'-sockim; tough!
Woof! (I mean GRRRR.....)

Hiking with 4 Legs - White Domes Loop Trail, Valley of Fire State Park, Nevada

Here I am on another hike - White Domes Loop Trail.  I really, really wanted to be off-leash on the hike, but as you may recall, I'm eternally grounded from being off-leash. Again, and it bears repeating - as far as the reasons why I can't go off-leash in open areas, it wasn't my fault - I was framed.

Hiking the Rainbow Vista Trail - but where was the ocean???

Here I am on the Rainbow Vista Trail! I had a great time!  I pulled Mom & Dad all over, hunted for rodents, and stuck my nose in many-a-hole! What I didn't understand was - where was the ocean? I felt sand under my feet, but there was no roar, no salt smell, nothing. Strange.......
