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...
