Some Random thoughts

Does this fur make me look fat? Seriously I have been begging for a haircut for over 3 weeks. I think I heard someone on the phone yesterday getting me an appointment with Bob the Barber. FINALLY! So my family seems to be spending a lot of time in the big tub outside. I can't quite figure this thing out - on the coldest of days (or even nights) they get their swim suits on (not a pretty sight this time of year - but I don't say anything) and dive out the slider. I usually hear some screaming and then an eerie silence. This drives me crazy - what am I missing??? I bark long enough to get someone to open the door again and let me out. I survey the land, check the borders of the territory, and take a peak into the big tub. Everyone looks very content and warm, meanwhile I start to freeze. I stand on 2 legs (not an easy task mind you) , lay in the snow (I saw that on a Disney movie once), pace back and forth across the deck, and generally try to keep warm. Meanwhile no one is really interested in helping me get back inside. I hear something about " living with my decision" yada yada yada... Maybe I should try to keep the fur (at least for a little while longer).

Here it is! If you look carefully you can see me in my new seat.

Cool Cooper!

The Alpha dog in my pack pulled off a huge surprise for Momma this weekend. She turns 40 on Friday. With the help of some really great friends, he threw a huge surprise party for her. Of course, I had to stay home to guard the territory, but they were all so excited when they got home.
To top it all off, for her birthday gift, My Alpha got us a new" Jack Carrier" - very sporty. They call it a "mini cooper" . I call it a really cool ride with the sunroof down and the music blasting. It doesn't like the snow nearly as much as I do - When I get ice balls stuck in my paws, I can spend the day licking them out. Add a little salt and you have a nice happy hour type thing - When Cooper gets ice in his "paws" - he just sits and spins - what a baby! I'll have to spend some time with him one on one to help him get his life together - apparently in Florida (Where he came from) -They don't have snow. Welcome to Michigan Bro!
