Kuda had a toy box just like the one I have at home, and it was really hard for her to get her toys out of it, because she is so little. But it was easy for me to get them out of there!
Kuda's Dad liked to play tug of war with me, so we did that a lot while Mom was gone during the day. We watched TV, too. I love TV!
This was my chair on vacation. It wasn't nearly big enough for me, and to make it worse, Mom would sit it in when she got home, and then I would have to get up in the chair and share it with her, 'cause I like sitting with my Mom, but we really needed a bigger chair!

I could still pick up the ball, and run fast, and Mom still couldn't catch me!

I got bitten by a bug on my back leg, and then I kept scratching it and licking it (because dog licks make everything better!), and I must have been scratching and licking too much, because Mom finally looked at it, and found 2 big sores, and now I have to wear this stupid hat.
And you know how I feel about hats!
I especially hate this hat. I bump into doorways and furniture, and when Mom throws me treats, they bounce off the outside of it. And Mom calls me a "Conehead". Good grief.
Mom is putting medicine on my leg, which is stupid, because if she would just let me lick it, it would get all better!
Notice how I plop down on her jewelry stuff and her computer desk - that'll show her!
This picture show me when I heard the thunder! We have been having a lot of bad thunderstorms, and the thunder is even louder inside this hat.
Please tell my Mom to get me out of here!

This is my caterpillar Baby. I have had it for a really long time.
It has a tennis ball in its tail.
It used to have one in its head, but I got that one out!
When I am through, I put my head down and go into my Baby trance.
Sometimes I sit like this for a really long time!

It started off OK - Mom and I slept late, and then we snuggled in bed. I am a good snuggler!
Then, Mom went to work, and I was alone for a while.
But then the rain stopped, and right after that the bad stuff started!
Right outside our bedroom window, our terrible next door neighbors started making the bad bang bang noises they make every summer. It only happens on one day, but that is a horrible day for me!
I have to find a safe place to hide from the bang bang noises! But I have to be near Mom, because I am so scared, and I want to make sure she is OK. So I ask Mom to open her closet, and I go in there and stay for hours, until it stops.
It always lasts a really long time.
Mom tries to get me to come out and sit with her on the bed, but that is too close to the noise.The bang bang noises finally stop, and I come out of the closet, but I will not go outside, because they might start again! So I can't go potty again until it is daylight, but that is better than getting caught outside with the bad noises!
When Mom came home from work today, I got a new bone!
I chewed it really fast. Now it is gone.

This is how I am spending today - snoozing on my piggy baby. Babies make great pillows!
Have a fun day, however you spend it!

About a week ago, before it got so hot, Mom and I played a pretty good game of soccer outside.
Here is my patented "sneak defense." Mom never sees this one coming. I sneak right past her on my tiptoes.
This is me running super fast. Mom can never catch me.

Mom took me to my doctor's office and I had to stay there for a long long long time. Sometimes she does that. I don't know why, but I missed Mom a whole lot, even though there are a lot of nice people there that play with me and take me for walks outside.
I knew something was up when I saw Mom packing her suitcase. Lots of time when she packs a suitcase I end up at the doctor's office.
Then, to make things worse, the day before Mom came and picked me up, they gave me a stinky bath! Doesn't anybody understand how hard I worked to get back my good doggie smell? Now I have to start all over again!

I was so happy today! Mom came home from work early, and she took me for a walk. I love to go for walks. Walks are the best!
This pictures shows me dancing around Mom's legs, carrying my leash, because I am so excited.
Now I am standing by the front door, patiently holding my leash, all ready to go. But Mom can't find the key to the door, so I will helpfully walk back and forth from the door to the kitchen over and over until she finds the key. This time-tested technique has never failed to turn up the key in the end.
Now I am all but dancing on my back legs by the front door. I really do make a big deal out of going for a walk, huh?
Time's up for today - Now I'm waiting for Mom to make her way back to the porch. As usual, she is not as fast as I am.
Mom is still poking along. I cannot open this door myself unless I put my leash down, and I am NOT putting my leash down. I never put my leash down!
Mom has to forcibly take my leash away from me...
I love my leash.
In other news, I finally, finally smell like a dog again! Mom took me to that place that made me smell bad, and I have worked very hard to get my dog smell back. It is always harder in the winter to find ways to to keep that fresh dog smell, but I am cultivating a few new spots in the backyard!
Live Long and Prosper!

Mom bought me a new bone yesterday! At first, I pretended not to want it, and I played with my Baby, and sat in Mom's lap, and ignored the new bone. But I couldn't keep that up for very long.
I love rawhide bones! I chewed, and chewed, and chewed my new bone. Then I needed to go outside.
Naturally, I carried my new bone with me! But when we got to the back door, Mom said, "Drop it, Bailey." I looked at her with total incredulity - I wanted to take my bone with me! Mom just doesn't understand these things!
So, Mom told me to drop it again, and I slowly bent my head down to the floor until the bone bumped the tile, but I kept my new bone in my mouth. Mom opened the door, and I slowly strolled out on to the deck...
And when I got to the edge of the deck, Mom must have looked down at the kitchen floor, because suddenly I was busted. She said, in a really low voice, "Bailey..."
And I turned my head, and she saw the evidence. She said, very quietly, "Bad boy, Bailey. Bring me the bone." But I went out in the yard, and she just closed the door.
Well, now my feelings were hurt, because Mom never calls me the B-word. I was so upset that I didn't even do my business! I raced back in the house, but Mom had already gone back upstairs. I jumped up on the bed, and showed her the bone, and she told me I was a good boy again! Yay!

Y'all know I am all about the environment. I like to help recycle the garbage, and I make sure all the flower beds in my backyard get fertilized (naturally, of course) frequently. Like, daily.
So, in honor of Earth Day, I am sharing my box recycling technique with you. Be careful, though. This is hard work, and may not be for everybody.
First, of course, I have to get the box out of the trash. Then, I take it to the middle of Mom's bed, so she can appreciate all my hard work, and praise me.
Look at how hard I have to concentrate to do this right!
This is me letting Mom know that I am done, and ready for a treat.
I give her my best smile, but I never get any treats after all this hard work.
Maybe the pieces aren't small enough. I will try harder next time.
Happy Earth Day!

Remember how excited I was when I got my new duck Baby awhile back?
Well, Ducky was a great Baby, but sometimes I love my babies too much, and they fall apart! All by themselves!
This is a picture of me in my "Baby trance." I like to just hold my babies in my mouth sometimes, and my eyes sometimes roll up a little, and Mom says I am in a trance. I don't know what that means.

Then I got distracted by those workmen nextdoor (YES, they are still there!)

Mom and I played soccer, of course. Most of you know we do that almost everyday, if it isn't raining. This is a picture of me making a big play!
Right before we started this game, Mom turned around and went back into the house to get something (she wanted to get her camera, to take some pictures of some dumb old flowers.) She told me to stay, and then she told me again, like I might forget! I had the soccer ball in my mouth, and I was so excited about playing that I wanted to make sure Mom was coming back, so I followed her, but she didn't hear me.
She has a really strict rule that I cannot take my inside toys outside, and I cannot bring my outside toys inside. I know, it is a stupid rule, but she's the boss of me, so I try very hard to follow the rules. But this time, I was too excited about soccer! Mom went all the way upstairs, and into our room, and got the camera, and when she turned around, I was standing there with the soccer ball in my mouth, and she squealed, 'cause I had snuck up on her! Then she told me to take the soccer ball outside, so we went out and played for a long time. Guess who won? Me, of course!
PS: Don't tell Mom, but I planned the whole thing - this is my newest trick, but since she laughed so hard and made fun of me, I will never do it for her again! I'd like to see her flip a Cheez-It off her nose and onto her head...

I did play a little soccer with Mom, so she wouldn't be sad.
The workers are still working on the house next door. It used to be a blue house, and now it is a tan house. That is strange to me! I hope they are almost done, because I do not like them. They make a lot of noise with their tools, and throwing stuff, and when I peek through the fence at them, or when I bark and them, they talk loud to me, and one of them barks back at me. My Mom said something to him one time, 'cause he thought she was inside when he did it, but she wasn't. HA!
Remember when I told you how one of my real important jobs is to make sure Mom doesn't throw away important stuff? Well, I was super busy today while she was at class! She has had a cold, and there were a lot of tissues in the trash, and also a snack bag that still had some perfectly good crumbs in it. Wasteful, is what that is. I ate the crumbs, and then shredded everything, so it will decompose quicker at the landfill. My work is never done!
