Play Date!

Finally had another play date with Ralph, the big pit mix from across the street. He's got his own little yard to play around in. Our favorite game is tug.

Here we are with one of his owner's socks. He'll never wear that again.

Out in the Country

Whenever I need to leave it all behind
Or feel the need to get away
I find a quiet place, far from the human race
Out in the country

Before the breathin' air is gone
Before the sun is just a bright spot in the nighttime
Out where the rivers like to run
I stand alone and take back somethin' worth rememberin'

Whenever I feel them closing in on me
Or need a bit of room to move
When life becomes too fast, I find relief at last
Out in the country

Before the breathin' air is gone
Before the sun is just a bright spot in the nighttime
Out where the rivers like to run
I stand alone and take back somethin' worth rememberin'

As you can see, we spent the weekend in Pennsylvania. It was a big weekend of "firsts" for me!

I rode in a car for a couple hours! I've never done that before, except when I was a puppy and Ingrid and Tyler were taking me home with them. I don't remember that trip 'cause like I said I was just a pup.

Here's me in the car, a Mustang convertible, just as we were leaving our street.

Ok, first stop was Jake, Dusty and Lucy's place. They live with two people named Carla and Dave, and all of 'em were way cool. Me and Dusty almost got into it a couple times; I didn't like this thing that was inside a cage that kept laughing at everyone [edit from Ingrid: a parrot] so I barked at it, trying to tell it to stop laughing, and that started those three telling me to quiet down, but they sure were noisy about it! It was cool cause we got to go outside whenever we felt like it, and run around as you can see in the top picture.

I was a little hungry, and there was food right out for the taking!

So I took some.

I picked something out of the toy pile to play with and the first thing I did was tear the asshole out of it. It tasted like chicken.

Here's a little video of me and Jake and Lucy going after a toy that Tyler threw. I got it, as you can see. I always get it.

Here's me and Carla, one of the people. She loves me. Oh yeah, all the ladies love Tony.

Next we went in the car again and when we got out we were on a farm! There were two big goats there that didn't like dogs, so they got their hair standing up on their backs and stuff when they saw me. There was no way I wanted to get them mad at me, one of them had horns! Sharp horns.

While the people ate lunch, I played with my toy that Carla and Dave said I could take, which was nice cause I was taking it anyway. One of the people there wanted to give me a potato chip, but Ingrid and Tyler said no. They say no a lot. There were also some little black things buzzing around next to the porch and I was trying to catch them, but I didn't do very well with the toy in my mouth.

Then we all got back in the car and headed for home. I barfed in the car cause I had eaten a lot of grass. How could I not eat grass?! It was everywhere! I've never seen so much green! Oh and a biscuit came back up too, in its entirety. I didn't chew it, you see, just swallowed it whole 'cause I had to get it before Jake did when the people were handing them out. Ha, I beat him to it. But he probably didn't throw up.

Then I fell asleep. It smelled like chicken.

No Pets Allowed In Restrooms

Yeah, we saw the sign, we just walk right in like it doesn't apply to us.

'Cause that's how we roll.

Play Date Canceled. Sadness.

I was supposed to have a play date today with my friend Ralph from across the street, but his owner had work to do so they canceled. BOO! Why do they have to work? I don't! I just play, play, play!

Ingrid and I went to the Seminary to the dog run there this morning and again this afternoon. Here's me waiting for her to throw the damn ball already.

Old Navy Rocks!

And this is how I roll ...

Ingrid and I went to Old Navy, she was getting some tshirts and we stopped by the dog section. I got a new "T" tag, a new red, white and blue collar for the summer, and then I picked this toy out and she bought it for me! I carried it all the way home, cause I wanted everyone to know it was mine, baby. The whole way people were pointing and smiling at us, probably cause they wanted a tire toy, but there was no way I was letting go of that. It's my new fave toy!
