Hey everybody!!
On Sunday I went to my special class with mom and Auntie Lynn and her dog BJ. We had fun at class even though we only got to work once. We got lots of treats for looking at a silly stool and for sniffing the floor. Er, mom says that's not quite right but I guess I just need ta practice some more or something.

But AFTER class, my Auntie Carla was there with my littersister GAEL!

Mom and Auntie Carla were very excited, but Gael and I weren't. We were both kinda scared of each other but trying not to show it. We woulda been much better if we coulda been off our leashes but it was raining and there wasn't really a safe place for us to run around.

At first, we didn't look at each other at all. Then, Gael looked away so I sniffed her bum (that end is much safer!) Then, I turned away and she sniffed my bum. That went ok. Then, our moms were gonna have us sit next to one another for a photo. We were just about to be in the perfect position when across the parking lot in the next yard I SAW A CHILD! I had to holler real loud to let that scary monster child know NOT TO COME ANY CLOSER! Mom told me the kid was ok and took me to the other side of the parking lot, and Auntie Carla brought Gael. Whew, narrow escape! I don't know what is wrong with my mom she never seems to realize the terrible danger she is in when those CHILDREN are near.

So then, our moms tried to get us to sit together again for a photo. Well, we were kinda worked up over the encounter with the CHILD. Gael made faces and me and I made faces at her too. We were trying to prove we really were tough dogs!

But, I wouldn't get any closer to my littersister Gael than this:
Me: "I'm not getting any closer mom, forget about it."
Gael: "Just stay over there you punk."

Do you think Gael and I look tough??

After that, mom and Auntie Carla tried to get us to lie down a little closer to each other. I don't know *what* they were thinking!!!!!!!!

Me: "Please, mom, please, don't make me lie down close to
my littersister. Please, mom, I promise to be a good dog
forever and ever if only you don't tell me to stay here."
Gael: "You punk, I told you to stay over there."

Boy, sometimes my mom sure is crazy. Well, finally our moms got their brains back and let us get up and then we were all better and much happier! We were glad we got to see our Aunties. Mom said she was really happy to see the beautiful Gael, and so was Auntie Lynn since our dogmomma Flicka lives with her! She said me an Gael are her granddogs, kinda. Auntie Carla said I was Handsome! I am handsome, doncha think?

Well, it's real late so I'm gonna go get some more beauty rest . . . Night!

Fun Saturday! Tons of photos of doggies and birdies too!

Hey everybody!! It's me again, Arthur! I had such a fun day today! My mom stayed home and played with me and my friends ALL day!

Well . . . at least, I *thought* they were my friends. But now I'm wondering . . . do you think they might be my stalkers, instead???? Look at the evidence below and let me know if you think I should be worried!!!
What do you think????

Now, if you look at the picture below, you will see what happens when silly Saga crashes into me when I'm trying to concentrate on ball work!
Don't worry, I don't really hurt him, I just let him know it's really rude to crash into dogpeoples! Mom says I should cut him some slack since he's deaf and doesn't see all that well . . . but I don't care!

Mom said I should post the below pic because it's rare we actually see Lacy in the group! Well, you can see she was bailing on us anyway, the silly.
Speaking of Lacy, here she is hanging with Caper! I think they are plotting something here!
Get her, Lacy!
Caper doesn't seem to mind Lacy harassing her, though, so that's good. Mom says she actually got good pics of Caper, so I gotta share 'em, even though I know you'd rather see pics of me! This is a good one of her funny haircut! Mom got mad today 'cause on our bike ride Caper rolled in burdocks!!
Mom loves this one 'cause you can see her eyes so well!
I know you are waiting for my close ups so here I am!
Here I am with my girlfriends Curly Cate and Sparkle!
Commin' atcha!
Curly Cate is my newest foster sister!! Here she is with my other foster sister, Layne.

I think she's got funny ears!
She's always on the move!
Mom got her standing still a few times though!
I'm way faster, see!!!
I think she's kinda cute, though.
Here's Layne, she likes to play with my Jolly, too! But usually I don't let her! It's mine! She's waiting for mom to kick it, here!

She gets it!
She can carry it but usually she doesn't!
She and Sparkle looking cute!

Oh hey! Before I go, you gotta see this totally funny pic of my brother Dust! Mom caught him mid-shake and it looks like he's got a broken ear!! WOL!!!!!!
This is what he thinks of my sharing that pic with you! Opps, gotta run!!!!
I hope you enjoyed all the photos of us doggies!

Mom says I should share the birdies too! They got to go outside in their aviary today, for the first time this season!!!!!! This is what their aviary looks like from the outside.
This is Cypress, his friend Mulberry looks just like him but mom didn't get his pic because he was bathing in the water dish (what a weirdo!)
This is Aspen, mom says she is Beautiful!
This is Willow, mom says she is the sweetest birdie ever!
This is Maple bird! He's pretty cool looking, huh??
OK, well, I gotta go now, I get to go North to my SPECIAL class tomorrow!!!!!!!!!

See Ya Later!

Chip goes home, and fun photos

Hey everybody!! It's me, ArthurGOOD! I have the BEST news ever! Today my annoying foster brother CHIP went away with a new family. Mom says he'll be so much happier there where he will have a whole organic farm to himself and will get dotedon. (I don't know what dotedon are, but I think I want some.) Mom says Chip was kinda confused but that he's going to love his new home. Let me tell you, I am just thrilled that guy isn't hear anymore to bark and bite at me while I fetch. Mom says she was silly and forgot to take the camera out of the car, so she didn't get any photos of the happy family. But when we got home, she did take OUR pictures so I'll put them up, of course. You'll have to excuse the above photo, I am still wearing my RuffRider seat belt!

Below is fuzzy Caper Portuguese Water Dog! Mom says tomorrow GrandPaw is going to drop her off and when he picks her up she's gonna look like a silly dog again with her fancy haircut! You can see how scruffy she is now, though!

She was kinda mad 'cause she didn't come to Sugarbush with us, and neither did naughty Lacy, below. Mom says I can call Lacy naughty 'cause she has been jumping over the babygate and breaking into the trash can and leaving mom a disaster in the kitchen! Back into the crate for her!
"I didn't do nuthin."

Layne got to come with us though and she got really, really, really tired!!
Poor Saga hadta stay home 'cause he always hurts himself at Sugarbush!
Mr. D also stayed home, just 'cause there wasn't enough room in the Scion for mom 'n me 'n Layne 'n Chip 'n Grandpaw 'n Sparkle 'n Lulu AND him. Plus he's an old dog and needs to rest!
This is Lulu in case you forgot. She's visiting for the weekend!
Here's another pic of Layne. Mom says in this pic Layne reminds mom a lot of her Miss Nell.
Mom took this picture the other day. It's her scary friend Willow sittin' on her head. I was sittin' next to them but I keep ducked down 'cause that green thing is scary.
This is another green scary thing, mom says his name is Mulberry. I don't care what his name is as long as he stays away from me.

Okay, folks, that's all I'm bloggin' about for now.

Oh, wait. Mom says I should tell you all what a very, very, very good boy I was today. After I had run and run and run and run, she took me into the building to do agility! I haven't done any agility for, like, a half a year. Mom says I was brilliant. She was running all around telling me to "With her" (that means stay by her left side) and "Side" (that means stay on her right side) and I was doing just what she said, even though she was running around the agility stuff, right by the jumps and toward the jumps, I was staying by her and NOT taking the jumps and stuff unles she told me too (except a couple of times when I couldn't help myself. But mostly I was perfect!)

OKAY, now I'm really done. I gotta rest up!
