Sunday Silhouettes

My first sunset walk with my bestie Wilhelmina and Duffy! We had some fun posing for the humans!

I like this one with the airplane in the sky!

 

 

Mia: How long do we have to pose for mom?? Can we go play now?

Hope you guys had a great weekend! See you again soon!

Friday Fun – New toy!

With Auntie visiting us right now, my humom has been spending lots of time with her and their parents. Whenever there has been low tide, my humom will also invite Auntie to come since she doesn’t get to see low tide where she lives in Boston.

She wasn’t impressed with me jumping on her though…

As if it wasn’t exciting enough that Auntie was coming with us again to the beach, my humom GOT ME A NEW TOY!!!!! I think she called it a Frizz-bee. I don’t know why it’s called that it looks nothing like a frizzy bee? Nonetheless, it was super fun!

I’m still trying to get the hang of it. I think the goal is for me to catch it while it’s still in the air. The wind makes it trickier too.

I still had lots of fun chasing it and running around in the water with it though! There were lots of dogs at the beach too that wanted to play with it! But I’m not very good at sharing toys, especially new ones so I just teased them all with it and got them to chase me.

I was having so much fun I didn’t want to go home!

When we got home my humom hoped that she could get some work done but I had other plans…hee hee

Doesn’t she know that treat toys are much more fun on humans’ laps?? Naps are way better too that way!

Happy Friday Friends! Have a great weekend!!

One Lovely Blog Award

I was nominated by Lucy and her humom for the One Lovely Blog award (Thank you! 🙂 ). You can visit them at Lexi the schnauzer & friends!

one-lovelyblog-award

One of the rules is to list seven facts about yourself so here goes!

  1. I LOVE FOOD. I am a very food motivated pup. I will stare you with very intense eyes and do whatever it is you want me to do so that I can get the food/treat.
  2. I am totally ball obsessed. I will ignore all dogs and people around me and stare at my humom until she throws the ball again.
  3. I stand behind my fur-brother Keiko while he eats his food because I try to steal some of it (but I’m not allowed because I’m on a raw fed diet and he eats kibble). But my humom lets me lick his bowl afterwards, you know..in case he missed a few crumbs.
  4. Even though I can’t fit, I still try to sleep in my humom’s lap.
  5. I love eating sticks and tall grass in the trails, seaweed and clam shells at the beach!
  6. I get more excited meeting new people than new dogs but I’m always down for a good chase with other dogs in the trails!
  7. People often wonder what my mix is because I look like a Staffordshire Bull Terrier but I’m pretty small in size. (Though for some reason I photograph big!)

IMG_2858

I am supposed to nominate 15 bloggers for this award. I’m still new to this so I’ll try and nominate as many furiends as I can! Some of you may already be nominated!  I nominate:

  1. Ruby from Ruby the Airedale. She’s the CUTEST Airedale pup I know! We love her blog so much my  humom wants an Airedale pup too! BOL!

2. The whole gang from Three Pups and a Couple of Kitties. This is such a fun group of pups and kitties (Belle, Bess, Bonnie, Lucy and Linus)! There’s always something going on in this household!

3. Harper Lee from thek9haperlee. This adorable Golden Retriever also shares her blog with her little sister Tallulah Bee. These silly pups are a lot of fun to follow!

4. Cricket and Butterfly from Rachel Mankowitz’ blog. These two adorable pups have got their own little antics goin’ on.

5. Millie and Walter from Bird Brains & Dog Tales. I love following these two! They always get to try out new treats, it makes me drool on my keyboard every time!

6. Wilhelmina from Critters in the Cottage. Now how could I not nominate my bestie! She lives in a cottage with her furbrother Duffy and 4 cats!

7. Tippy from Tippy Tales. I’ve only recently become blogging friends with Tippy and her mom but she’s got some amazing photos and adventures! Did I tell you she has these beautiful blue and brown eyes??

 Well…that wasn’t 15 nominations, I guess I need to make more blogging friends! (Some have already been nominated by others so I didn’t nominate you again) but I hope this is enough. If you were nominated by me and you’ve already gotten the award or…you don’t care for the award that’s okay!

Now for the rules:

  • Thank the person that nominated you and provide a link to their blog
  • List the rules

Scary Robot!

My humom brought home something suspicious last night…and let me tell you my suspicions were right!!

It looks like some kind of robot. It was sleeping all last night and then it woke up today!

My humom said it’s not a robot but a va-coooom. I have no idea what that means, it moves around like a robot to me! And boy is it noisy!

It wasn’t very friendly, it didn’t really say hello it just started moving around and bumping into things. It liked eating all of Keiko’s hair on the floor. What kind of robot likes to eat dog hair??

Mia: I don’t think I like this robot mom. 

It almost attacked me! But luckily I dodged it! Whew!

Keiko wasn’t scared by it at all! It even tried to attack him too!

Mia: Keiko watch out! It’s coming for you!

Keiko didn’t even flinch! I was pretty impressed!

IMG_5682

Mia: Mom, please make the scary robot stop…

Whew…the robot finally went to sleep. I hope it doesn’t wake up again. I’m so tired now I need to sleep in my humom’s arms. It makes me feel better when I can sleep next to her when I’m scared.

Do you guys have any scary robots in your house?

Throwback Thursday – Meet Duke!

Happy Thursday Friends! I haven’t done a throwback in a while so I’m going to throw it back to early last spring when I was a few months old!

IMG_9064

Do I look like a little bunny here? That’s what Wilhelmina’s humom likes to call me sometimes because I have such big ears! I was such a small puppy back then!

Way back before I met Wilhelmina, I used to play with a puppy named Duke! He’s a month younger than me. Isn’t he so handsome? His humans think he’s a mix between a Rhodesian Ridgeback and Mastiff.

He is much bigger than me but he was always very gentle when we played together.

IMG_9047

I haven’t seen him for more than 6 months now. There was an incident where he chased after a car and he dragged down his human. She broke her leg and arm and took a while to recover. Since then, Duke hasn’t been able to be out off leash in public, he gets very nervous around dogs and strangers. It was a very traumatic incident for him.

(This photo was taken just a couple of weeks before the incident)

We visited him once at his house and we had a good time running around in his backyard. I hope he is doing okay, we miss him a lot!

Sunday (Not so) Funday

Hello friends…*sad face*…I am having a not so fun weekend…during one of our trail runs I somehow managed to chip part of my toe nail!

How did it happen? Well, I like to play a game with my humom called “Find the Stump” where I will look for a stump, jump on top of it and I get a treat! I play this game with Wilhelmina too, it’s her humom that told us about this game!

Mia: Where’s my treat?!?!

Well, if you ever meet me, you will see that I love food, and I will do almost anything for food! There was this really tall stump that I usually have NO PROBLEMS climbing but this one time for some reason I got stuck half way. I tried my HARDEST TO HOLD ON (because I really wanted the treat) but alas…I couldn’t pull myself up to the top and I fell awkwardly. My toe nail must have somehow caught onto the wood and it ripped a little.

I didn’t show any signs of pain or discomfort until that night when I was on the bed ready for sleepytime. At first my humom thought I pulled a muscle (again). *side note: I pulled a leg muscle a couple of weeks ago from running too hard on the beach with Auntie*

I was being very needy and asking for lots of attention all afternoon and night.

Mia: Mom, stop playing on your iPad and cuddle with me

When my humom looked closer, it was indeed my nail that was damaged.

We went to see the vet right away. My humom was expecting the worse but fortunately the vet said the damage wasn’t too bad! She just clipped the hanging nail part off and then cleaned my foot.

Hooray! No sedation! My humom has to soak my foot in a pink solution 2-3 times a day for 5-10 minutes for the next few days.  My humom is not looking forward to it because she knows I won’t make it easy for her. Boy does she know me well! BOL!

Lucky for her I love my food and I can be easily bribed.

My humom was hoping she could clean it for longer than 5 mins but hello???? Does she not realize that 5 mins really feels like 5 YEARS in dog life????

 

The vet also said no beach or trails for 5 days!!! Is she crazy???

So now my humom has to get creative and find ways to keep me busy indoors. Good luck with that! BOL!

One of my favorite toys is my Kong Wobbler. But it doesn’t keep me occupied for very long because I can get those treats out pretty easily with my special whacking skills!

I recently got a new treat toy, I don’t know what it’s called but it’s pretty tricky! I think my humom got it on purpose because she thought it would be a hard challenge for me.

IMG_5733

 I kept trying and trying…

IMG_5741

Mia: Um….excuse me, a little space here? I need to get this treat out!

But eventually I GOT IT!!!!!!! TAH DAH!!!!! My humom isn’t very impressed with this toy. She was told I would be occupied for HOURS! Well humans, you have underestimated me! BOL!

Mia: So…What’s next Mom??
