Throwback Thursday – Family Art Night!

It’s another Throwback Thursday! This week I want to share with you more stuff we did when my Auntie was here!

Did you know that my humom’s whole family is really artistic? My humom’s mom loves to watercolor and recently she has been painting more.

I guess that really inspired my Auntie because she wanted to do a family art night during her visit! They got out all their art paper and watercolor paints and started setting up. My humom’s dad didn’t join us though. He wanted to play his ookaleelee.

I tried to help! Actually no, that’s a lie, I just wanted to sit on Auntie’s lap.

Then I went over to see what my humom’s mom was up to.

I wanted to see what she was painting but I wasn’t allowed to jump on her lap. Hmph.

I’m bored….Nymeria play with me!

 

My humom had been working on a pencil sketch for Wilhelmina’s humom so she decided to continue with that project.

Do you see all those beautiful color pencils in the background? Apparently they are really expensive and my humom couldn’t afford to buy them so my humom’s mom bought them for her birthday! Her birthday was at the end of March, right when Auntie came to visit! It was perfect timing!

We were getting bored and wanted to play on the couch but we weren’t allowed. Dogs aren’t allowed on the furniture at my humom’s parents’ house. What kind of ridiculous rule is that!

Whaddaya mean we’re not allowed on the couch??

Mom! Wanna take a break and give us a treat because we’re so adorable??? Heehee…

How can you resist these eyes???

Our humom finally got the hint and stuffed us with treats and we took a nap while everyone was working on their art.

It started to get late so my humom packed up her stuff and we were ready to go home. She wasn’t able to finish her sketch but she made some good progress!

This is what her mom painted! She was practicing how to draw trees and leaves for her next painting project.

My Auntie finished her watercolor and it looked amazing! She painted her boyfriend’s dog Gnocchi. He’s a really tiny white Chihuahua. Isn’t he cute?

I hope on their next art night someone will paint a picture of ME!

Do you have any paintings or sketches of yourself? Do you have any favorite artwork?

Throwback Thursday – Nymeria is making progress!

Today marks exactly 6 months since Nymeria has been here and she’s made a lot of progress! She is still very weary of strangers, especially men but she loves all the humans at her daycare and she is slowly warming up to Uncle Erik and Wilhelmina’s hudad.

Back in March when my Auntie was visiting, Nymeria made a huge breakthrough with her! She let my Auntie pet her and give her treats but the biggest thing of all was…She started playing with her! My Auntie was so happy and so were we!

It was a shame that Auntie didn’t visit for very long, she was only here for a week. Nymeria warmed up to her the last day before Auntie went back to Boston.

Hopefully when Auntie comes back in the summer time Nymeria will remember back to this visit and warm up to her again!

Throwback Thursday – New Toy!

 

Happy Thursday everyone! These past few weeks have been quite busy for us!

The first couple of weeks I had to lay low because we found out that I have mild hip and elbow displaysia 😦

As you know, laying low and resting are not in my vocabulary!! I was pretty bummed about the news until….

….My Auntie came to visit! She’s my favorite Auntie in the whole wide world!!!! I just can’t help it when I see her I just go crazy!

This time she had a surprise for me!

She made me a couple of rope toys! She used some of her old t-shirts and magically turned it into a tug toy!!  It was perfect timing since my humom couldn’t take me out to run off my energy, this was a great way to tire me out!

Auntie and I tested it out and it was a lot of fun!

Play with me mom!

And of course, the obligatory pose with my new toys…sigh…

Thank you Auntie for my new toys! I love them so much!

Do you guys like to play with rope or tug toys?

Throwback Thursday – Christmas Holidays

Since it’s Thursday, I thought I should throw it back to the holidays and share a bit of what we did!

This was our Christmas tree! It was my very first Christmas tree! (We didn’t have one last year because I was too scared of them).

This year though, we had a couple of very special decorations. Instead of putting a star on top, my humom put a beautiful little snow owl in memory of my Angel brother Keiko.

She also got a special Christmas ornament with his name on it.

I supervised the whole thing, making sure all the decorations were in the right place. I had to take a nap afterwards, it’s very tiring being a supervisor!

The best part of the holidays is when my FAVORITE AUNTIE IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD comes to visit! She’s my humom’s younger sister. I did an intro post about her last year, you can read it here.

We always have so much fun together, this one time she took me to the beach to play fetch! If you missed that post, you can read it here!

I love sitting on Auntie’s lap! (I’m in denial that I’m too big to be a lap dog)

When she visits, she always stays at the parents’ house. I wish she could stay with us but our apartment isn’t big enough. My humom’s parents’ house is REALLY BIG! but…us dogs are only allowed in the kitchen.

This would be the first time Nymeria would meet my humom’s whole family. She even met my humom’s brother, wife and son! They were visiting from Hawaii and my humom said she did very well. She was a little nervous but she sat quietly behind Humom. Unfortunately we didn’t get any photos, Humom forgot to take some!

While the humans were waiting for the food to be ready, I was watching my Auntie make this little fluffy ball thingy for her dad’s knitted hat (she knitted him a hat for Christmas!) I thought it was a toy so I kept staring at it, waiting for Auntie to give it to me. I think she called it a “pom-pom” or something. She ended making me one but it didn’t last very long…

Nymeria whined a little bit throughout the night, but I tried to comfort her like a good big sister! Humom was very proud of me. 🙂

Eventually she was able to relax and took a nap while the humans were eating.

After dinner, my humom’s dad took out this weird contraption called a “oo-ka-lee-lee”. It plays music when you touch the strings.

My Auntie serenaded me with it later on in the night!

As you can see I enjoyed it very much!

My humom knew that it was time to go home when I jumped into her lap to sleep.

I can’t wait until my Auntie comes back to visit! I think my humom said she will be back during broken Spring? I don’t really know what that means…how do you break Spring? Something about my Auntie not having to go to class for a week so she’s going to come home to celebrate my humom’s birthday!

Happy Thursday everyone!

See you again soon Auntie!

We went by humom’s parents’ house last night to say good bye to my Auntie.  She played fetch and threw my frizzy bee with me!

IMG_6518

She flew back to Boston this morning and I miss her already!

I got a little too excited afterwards and chewed up part of my frizzy bee. I couldn’t help it! It was pretty tasty though I must admit.

IMG_6558

My humom was not impressed with the proud look on my face.

Then we played with some sticks and I took a break and chewed on some.

I didn’t want to go home but Auntie still needed to pack and go to bed. I asked my humom if I gave Auntie my Bear-Bear would she stay?

But she said no, Auntie had to go back to Boston to go back to school. She said that Auntie will be back for Christmas though! I can’t wait to see her again!

IMG_6529

Have a safe flight Auntie! Good luck with your first year in med school! Love you!

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!

IMG_5772

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!!

Friday Fun with Auntie!

OMD! Friends! Did I tell you?? My Auntie is back!!! She is visiting for a month I am so excited!!! Her boyfriend Brian is also visiting but only for a few days so my humom suggested they come with us during low tide since Brian has never experienced it!

My humom said I could bring my ball this time since Wilhelmina didn’t come with us. I let Brian throw some balls, he was very happy. He wanted to try and bond with me after he saw how much I love my Auntie.

IMG_5027

He was pretty good. I think I like him. He seems like a nice guy.

My Auntie still throws the best. (Shhhh…don’t tell my humom!)

IMG_5032

We saw a bald eagle! But it was too far for us to take a picture. We saw some jellyfish though! My Auntie got stung on her foot. 😦

IMG_5102

I wanted to lick it but my humom shoo’d me away. She said I could get hurt if I got too close and touched it.

We also saw some humans doing this weird thing on a board and a floating cloud? they somehow attached this cloud to a long boardy thing…my humom called it kitesurfing? What a weird word, I have no idea what it means.

IMG_5046

Boy, I was so happy to see my Auntie, it was such a wonderful day at the beach with her.

IMG_5035

Auntie wait up!

I love my Auntie

I might have mentioned my humom’s sister in a past blog but I don’t think I introduced her properly. She’s my humom’s younger sister. I really love my Auntie!

I don’t see my Auntie often because she lives in Boston, Massachusetts. She comes home to visit in December and in the summer when she’s not in school. My humom was very surprised to see that I was so drawn to her sister because I can be very shy at times and not let strangers pet me.

The last time she was here she came over to visit (in our previous home) and as soon as she sat on the couch I wanted to cuddle in her lap! (I don’t do this with very many people) If I want to cuddle in your lap that means you are very special to me!

IMG_4368

And then I got really goofy and she played with me and we played the tickle game that I like to play with my humom.

I hope I get to see my Auntie again soon. My humom says she’ll be back in a couple of weeks. She hasn’t seen my new home yet so I’m very excited for her to come over and play with me again! 🙂

IMG_4380

I miss you Auntie!
