Red Paws ....

I'm not amused ! 

Paws are itching recently more often, so I lick them more than usual to spread my super-healing saliva over them. Owner took me to the vet yesterday. Got diagnosed with some kind of a rash between the balls of my paws. Now they're applying some ointment twice a day into the creases. To not spread that stuff on floor and carpet, I need to wear some socks for an hour after the application. Owner made them herself (obviously!) from her summer socks. No store close by that sells baby socks, which would have been the more fashionable choice. Now look at me..... I'm not amused !!!

I mean .... really?

And here's the issue:

November 19, 2022 - How I Spent My 5th Birthday

Here we go: Extensive walkies in the morning with my hooman, met some dogs and we trained 'find the treat'.  Nice breakfast with a special beef mixture. Yummie ! Resting with my other hooman until we went for an afternoon walkies by the lake. There I found the most seducing perfume in a field and couldn't resist but roll six times. I looked like a mess but was very happy ๐Ÿ˜Š. 


Then...some playing at home, a snack at tea time, resting for the party, cuddles and belly rubs. The living room was nicely decorated with balloons and a Happy Birthday garland ๐ŸŽˆ I also put on my bling-bling collar. 

At 18h an early walk to the bus stop to pick up one of my favourite hoomans, and when we returned home the other guests had already arrived for dinner. No dogs at my party, but the owners of my best friends who are all my favourite hoomans also. I was the center of the attention !! I received yummie presents and an even yummier birthday cake.

All my favourite hoomans cuddled with me and when it was time for a toast on me, I was presented with the birthday cake and was allowed to eat it in the living room straight away. Phew, though it was small, it was still too much for me.  Happy with a full belly, I now needed to rest, and while all my favourite hoomans had dinner, I was snoozing off over their chatter on the sofa. 

Later we drove one of the guests home and walked with her a quick round late at night where she lives. I followed one more cat trail, before we returned home for a good nights rest. 


So now I'm 5. In hooman years this is 40. Well, best age, I guess ๐Ÿ˜‰

Dirty Paws

So what! I'm a dog! I roll in dirt and I run through muddy fields. But I'm a good girl in the bathtub. When the shower head starts to pour water, I automatically do my bathtub ballet: raise front left paw first, then left back paw, then right back paw and then right front paw, little wash of the belly and front and rinse the beard. Shake. Ready for the towel.

... bathroom should have better illumination ...

Dandelions ??

Very sunny day yesterday, the last of a few days in a row with temperatures up to 24°C. Had a fine walk to the lake and back, past the apple plantation where the grass was very fresh and green. I love to cuddle my bum in it. 

Then a photo was taken, but wait...is this photo about me or the dandelions, eh?


Aaaah, so finally me solo in the green...

Multitasking

Today I thought why not show my favourite toy to the neighbourhood? I was actually waiting for one of the cats to sneak by so I can give it a full barking. I can even do that with the racoon in my mouth !

Don't disturb, I'm busy ...


When's that frickin' cat coming out?
