Mommy said we did not have internet for a long time so I couldn’t send out my blog! I wrote it anyway so I will get caught up very soon!
Mommy says I can’t call the New House, the New House anymore. She says it is just Our House. I’m going to call it the House-that-comes-with-us-in-the-Car, because that is what it does! It is really weird to have your house come with you in your car but sometimes it’s good. My bed and my dish are right there with me! I can lay right in my bed, in my House-that-comes-with-us-in-the-Car, and look at my Mommy. I like that. Auntie Debbie says that now I am a Travelling Dog! She rubs my head when she says that so I guess it’s a good thing!
Yesterday, we went to Little Rock, Arkansas. Mommy said that a President used to live here! I did not think that was interesting. My friend, Haley’s, mom came here once though, so I guess that is interesting. I did find a little rock and I did pee on it so I have left my mark on Arkansas! We did not meet anyone interesting or any other dogs at that stopping place. This morning we drove and drove and drove. I decided to take a nap because it was boring to be a Travelling Dog, even if I get my ears rubbed! Then Mommy stopped at a New Place! It had so many trees! I sniffed and sniffed all of the trees. I found a big stick and I carried it all around with me. It was so much fun! Auntie Debbie took lots of pictures of me with my stick but she couldn’t get them from her Camera to Mommy’s Computer!
After we went to Arkansas, we went to Oklahoma! We drove and drove and drove! The roads are kind of bumpy in Oklahoma. Even bumpier than they are in Arkansas! Then we drove on the bumpiest road ever! Everything in the House-that-comes-with-us-in-the-Car was shaking really hard, even me! I thought that Our House would shake apart! Mommy did not like driving on that road. But then we stopped at a really nice place! There was a dog there, named Cocoa! He played with me. I did not bite him because he was so gentle and nice. His eyes were different colors. Mommy said he might be from Australia, too! After I played with Cocoa, I was tired so I went into the House-that-comes-with-us-in-the-Car and I went to sleep.
Today’s Adventure was very Interesting. I was in Nashville and Mommy’s friend, Stephanie came to where the New House was parked and we got to go ride in her car! We went to her house and there was a Giant Dog there! His name is Walter and he is the Biggest Dog I have ever seen!
Mommy made me wear my muzzle because she thought I would bite Walter. I thought Walter was a cow because he was so Big so I tried to herd him around. He is a puppy still and he could not stop trying to play with me. I told him “No” and he did not listen so I tried to bite him. Mommy said it’s a good thing I had my muzzle on because if Walter had bitten back it would have been a Bad Day! After a little bit, Walter and I ran around and chased and played. I was very tired when we got back in Stephanie’s car and went back to the New House.
Mommy let me stay in my crate (she bought me a special new crate for the New House) and she and Stephanie and Auntie Debbie went someplace called the Grand Ole Opry. Mommy said that Country Music Stars go there to sing. I don’t know why Mommy went there. She can’t sing!
I met a Nice Man at the New House place. He is from Australia! When Mommy told him that I am an Australian Cattle Dog, he gave me lots and lots of Cuddles! He even gave me a little Koala to clip to my collar! I love my little Koala but Mommy won’t let me chew on it! Every time he walked past, the Nice Man would say “Ozzie, Ozzie, Ozzie” and give me cuddles! I liked that!
Tonight, Mommy and Auntie Debbie did something Surprising! They built a Fire, on PURPOSE! I did not like that at all. Fires are dangerous! Mommy said that “it’s okay” but I did not believe her! I stayed far away from the fire. Mommy said that was being a Good Dog so I think I am right about the fire!
Tomorrow, we are going to drive and drive again! We are going to a place called Little Rock. I will find that little rock and I will pee on it!
My name is Snickers. I took over Mommy’s blog because she hasn’t had any time to write. Besides, she just writes about food and doesn’t share any of the yummy smelling things she cooks with me! Since I am much more important and interesting than food, I decided that I will write the blog this time.
My dog mother was a Schnauzer and my dog father was an Australian Cattle Dog. Mommy says that this means that I have a Lot of Energy! Someone told Mommy that my father was something called a “Yorkie” but Mommy knew that wasn’t right because I got so big and was so bouncy! She did something called a “DNA test” that told her the truth about me!
I like to run Really Fast and I like to Chase. I love to play Fetch. I go get my ball and bring it to Mommy and tell her “Throw” (she understands barking) and she throws my ball so many times! I get so happy when I can play Fetch. Mommy even got me some Cows because I am a Cattle Dog and needed some! I have five stuffed Cows with squeakies in them. I love to have Mommy throw the Cows and I go get them and let her throw them lots and lots! Sometimes I chew on them to make them squeak really loud.
I have lived with Mommy for two years. I came to live with her because the lady I lived with before didn’t have time to take care of me. I had to stay in a crate all the time and didn’t get to play or run around or chase balls, or any of the fun things that Mommy lets me do. I was very unhappy. When I first came to live with Mommy I didn’t know any Rules but I learned quickly. Mommy says that now I am a Very Good Dog. I don’t know what that means but Mommy gives me lots of tummy scratches when she says it!
Mommy was sad when I came to live with her because her friend, Copper, had just died. Her other friend, Baron, was sad too. He cried all day until I came to be his new little brother. Baron taught me how to be a Very Good Dog! He couldn’t play very much because his legs were tired and his back hurt most of the time, but he liked to watch me play and run. He told me that he used to run and play and chase and sniff, just like I do! He went to go be with Copper in December and I miss him a lot. Before he died, he told me that I have to take care of Mommy.
I do a Good Job when I take care of Mommy. I bark at all the dogs who walk past our house. I let them know that they can’t come in our house and hurt my Mommy. Sometimes, Mommy tells me to “Be Quiet” when I bark but she doesn’t know that those dogs are Dangerous! She has no idea how many times I have saved her life by telling those dogs to Go Away!
I have lots of stories to tell so I will write Mommy’s blog sometimes. Mommy said we are going to have an Adventure soon. I don’t know what an Adventure is, but Mommy says we will have fun. All I know is that the house has lots of boxes in it. But none of my Toys are in the boxes and my dish is where it belongs so everything is Okay. And I am still a Very Good Dog. (Mommy says I used too many exclamation points but that’s How I Roll!)
