Excuses, excuses...

Mom started a new job this week and now she's complaining of tirednesses when she gets home!

What a whiner!  I give her the stink eye so we can still go for walkies...

and if she forgets to give us cookies, I just sit and stare!

It's a lot of work keeping her in line...

And I'm not getting any help from 'you-know-who'...

On the Grassy Hill

It's a wonderful, sunny spring day today - we gots our furcuts just in time!

Since it was so sunny, we decided to head to our grassy hill to have a munch... and then I saw him!

Don't even think of it...

I gave him the Ole Sam Stinkeye...

and made sure he KNEW just who owns the grassy hills around here.

Mom told me 'No Barks!'

but that didn't stop me from sending a 'pppfffhhhttt' his way...

I'm pretty sure he won't be coming back here anytime soon!

Spa Day Walkie

Here we are!  All groomed and baffed!

We are now ready to admit...

We are handsome hawt dawgs!

After we had our spa treatment we headed to Esquimalt Lagoon for a little walkie on the beach.

We tried going down to the beach but there were too many big sticks and mom was too chicken to try to jump over them!

So we walkied along the other side.

That's the Fisgard Lighthouse...

There's the Olympic Mountains - those are across the Juan de Fuca Strait in Washington State...

And then... we saw some swans!

Mom wouldn't let us go near them so we couldn't see if there was any nice swan poop to roll in...

We Admit It...

Okay, okay...

We admit it!  We finally looked at ourselves in the mirror yesterday...

And yes... We are a total mess!

We've booked our spa appointments for tomorrow.

If we're lucky mom will take us to Royal Roads afterwards so we can roll in goose poop like last time!

A Little Spit and Polish!

I know I'm a good looking dawg...

but sometimes a little spit...

and polish makes a dawg look even better!

Gah!  This is hard work!

Butt it feels soooo good!

That's the spot!

And even with all that brushing...

We still haven't found my eyes yet!

My Kingdom!

There are days that I like to get up on the arm of the sofa...

 and survey my kingdom and the subjects therein.

It looks like most of them have heeded my summons and are anxiously waiting for me to begin this most important speech...

Friends, Stuffies, Squeakies, lend me your ears; I come to bury Piggy, not to squeak or de-stuff him...

Hey!  Why are you going back to the toy box???  Get back here you ungrateful stuffies!


It's not easy having your own kingdom...

Where We Went Walkies!

After my major protest yesterday we headed out for a special walkie.

First of all, we had to go pick up our Aunty Tonja so she could walkie too!  Then we headed to Beacon Hill Park - we haven't been there for a long time so mom thought it would be nice to check it out.

This is close to where we parked and there's a huge playground for the mini two-leggers to play in... of course, mom didn't want us to go check it out.

We especially love this park because there are lots of duckies living here.

If you are going to visit, Spring is the BEST time of year because they've just put down fresh compost.  Here I am checking to see if anyone is watching and then I rolled in it!

I found some rocks to climb and saw the bandshell - that's where they have concerts in the summertime.

Then we had to go over a bridge but before we did I had to look for the ducks in the pond... mom got kinda worried at this point cuz it almost looked like I would jump in!

Going over the bridge with the Pippen!  Normally, I don't do bridges but this one doesn't move so it's totally safe.

Here I am telling mom that I'm gonna catch a duck to eat for breaky!

Mom totally put the kibosh on that idea so we just continued our walkie...

It was lots of fun walking buy the duckies cuz they didn't really like us so as we walked by them they'd jump in the water.

I got to show off my balancing abilities by walking along the curb... Aunty Tonja was suitably impressed!

There's some weird trees living there - we didn't go near this one in case it grabbed us as we walked underneath him.

More duckies!

They have a kid's petting zoo and mom wanted to go check it out... now I'm a city dog and I don't like weird looking animals so I wasn't too thrill about this idea.

Then I saw this thing!  It made loud scary noises and I just wanted to go back to the car especially when mom said that some of them just wander the park and aren't behind a fence!  What if one tried to catch me???

So after that, my tail was down and I was pulling mom and aunty to the safety of the car.  

It didn't matter how much I yelled at them... they just dilly dallyed it along!  Pippen was no help either.

We eventually made it back to the car and back home - I had to nap the rest of the day to recover from my fright!

Here's a couple close up pics of the ducks.

Don't they look just yummy?

Oh and I think I said this was a special walkie - that's cuz today is mom's birthday and this is the only thing we could afford to get her after spending our allowance on chewies last week!

Happy Birthday, Mom!
