It’s my birthday!

Hi Guys!! Guess what?? IT’S MY BIRTHDAY TODAY!!!!

mia_bdayhat

Sigh…Mom, is this birthday hat really necessary? Why do you always have to humiliate me?

I turn two years old! My humom can’t believe I’m already two. She still calls me her baby (and says I still act like one sometimes…hmph!) She still misses my puppy days because I was so cute and tiny and much easier to handle. BOL!

I always celebrate my birthday with my BFF Wilhelmina because her birthday is only a couple of weeks before mine! If you missed her birthday post, you can click here!

My humom was being a big pain in the butt persistent about getting a photo of me and Wilhelmina with our birthday cake. I couldn’t understand why until I heard her tell Wilhelmina’s humom that she wanted to recreate the same photo every year so they could look back and compare all the years. Sheesh! Who cares! Just give us the cake!

Happy 2nd Birthday to us!

This is what we looked like on our first birthday!

first bday

Look how much smaller we were! Wilhelmina definitely grew a lot! We were small enough that we could fit in the photo without my humom standing on a stool.  But this year she had to get a small stool and stand higher to fit us in the picture because Wilhelmina is so tall!

My second year has been quite eventful!

I moved into a new place with my humom and furbrother Keiko…

Where to mom? I’m ready!

…Sadly, we had to say good bye to Keiko…(my humom isn’t ready to talk about it yet)…Keiko I miss you, even though we never played together I still miss your presence. You were an amazing big brother, thank you for being so patient with me and putting up with me. ❤

Rest in Peace Keiko (Nov 2003-Oct 2017)

…but I got a new annoying fursibling…(now I know how Keiko felt! BOL!)

Meet my ‘little’ sister Nymeria!

And now I have to share a lot of things with her…like my birthday treats!

My joint birthday party with Wilhelmina is this weekend but my humom wanted to me to have some treats to eat on my actual birthday so she got me these!

They all look delicious!!!

018FA8DB-9421-48E0-B71B-D181419069E0

The obligatory balance on the nose trick…sigh…

My humom tried to get a group photo with us and the treats but Nymeria wasn’t being very cooperative so she gave up and just let us choose one.

Nymeria! Why won’t you look at the camera!

Hey! Mom! She’s reaching for one! I get first pick!

Thanks Mom! Happy Birthday Mia!

My humom was also making some dog treats for me us so she let us lick the spoon!! Yummmm! peanut butter!

Nymeria: What’s peanut butter? I don’t think I’ve ever had that before…

Mia: Try it! It’s AMAZING!!!!! 

Nymeria: Hmmm! You’re right! This stuff is delicious!

Gotta get every last bit!

Man..I’m beat…Who knew that eating treats, doing tricks and licking a peanut butter spoon would be so tiring!

Friday Forest Fun with Friends!

We’ve been lucky here in Vancouver where even though the temperatures have dropped a bit, we haven’t gotten any snow that has stuck to the ground and caused chaos in the city. (Vancouverites are wimps when it comes to snow compared to our East Coast friends).

Nymeria got to meet my buddy Bruno for the first time. She didn’t get to run and play with us though. My humom says it’s still too soon to let her run loose in the woods, she might not come back!

The other black dog you see in the photos is Todd, he’s Bruno’s friend. The humoms couldn’t get all of us to sit still for a photo so all they got were black blurs. BOL!

Hope this sunny dry weather lasts a little bit longer before the dark cold winter days come!

TGIF!! Happy Friday Furiends!

Happy Howl-O-Ween!!! (with bloopers!)

It’s that miserable fun time of year again when my humom dresses me up in costume. At least this time I got to share my misery with my new fursister Nymeria.

IMG_0091

Mia: You could have at least straightened out my wings before taking the picture…oh the humiliation!

IMG_0233

Nymeria: Quit your complaining! I’ve only been in the country for 4 days and I’m already wearing these weird things on my head!

My humom was hoping to get some spooky looking halloween photos in the forest but…it didn’t really turn out that way…

…so instead…we present to you..Howl-O-Ween bloopers!! Bruno came with us to join in on the torture fun too!

IMG_0162

Nymeria: I don’t want to take pictures!

Mia: Just sit still! You think we want to do this??

Bruno: I can’t see anything…what’s going on? Are we done yet?

 

Mia: Arg! Nymeria you blinked!

Nymeria: Hey! What do you expect?? I’ve never taken photos before! Sheesh!

 

IMG_0173

Bruno: Sorry guys…I have a wardrobe malfunction over here…

Mia: Well hurry up and fix it so we can get out of these costumes and back to playing! We’re being tortured over here! 

Mia: Important tip for you Nymeria…If we keep looking away from the camera, the humoms will eventually give up and we’ll be free!

IMG_0381

Nymeria: Like this? How about if I start walking away? Does that work??

IMG_0241

Mia: Yah! Exactly! Good work! Looks like they’ve given up!!! YAY!

 

In the end, we managed to get one decent photo. My humom still wasn’t happy though because the photo is slightly blurry and she didn’t like the way I was sitting. Because of the angle and the sun reflection, you couldn’t see my bat wings. SHEESH! Humans are never satisfied are they???

IMG_0384_2

Happy Howl-O-Ween furiends!!! Did you guys get lots of treats? Do any cool tricks? Endure torturous photo shoots wearing ridiculous costumes? Share it in the comments!

Wordy Wednesday with Bruno!

We’re joining our pawddies over at Blog Paws for Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop! Click on the image to join the hop!

I met up with Bruno again for another fun trail run! It took less time to warm up to him this time and in the end I even tried to get him to play with me!

You can check out the video below!

I think maybe I was a little too fast…and I have really good ninja hiding skills so he couldn’t see me behind the bushes.

I can’t wait to run with him again!

Happy Wednesday Furiends!

Tongue out Tuesday!

You know you’re having fun when the tongues are hangin’ out! 😉

 

Hey! Mom!…You cut off part of my face!!!

 

Wilhelmina: Pass me the camera, I’ll take a selfie!

Mia: Nice selfie skills Wilhelmina! My humom should get some tips from you!

 

Happy Tongue Out Tuesday Furiends!

Friday Forest Fun with Bruno!

Happy Friday Everyone!

I’d like to introduce you to my friend Bruno!

Bruno is an American Bulldog mix and he’s about 8 years old. He didn’t have a great life as he got older. His previous family left him in a closet all day, up to almost 10 hours a day! They decided to surrender him to the SPCA and that’s where my Auntie Sandra and her husband found him and adopted him! I’m so happy they did because he has such a great life now. You should check out his adventures on his Instagram account right here!

Auntie Sandra has been friends with my humom for almost 20 years! She even took care of me once when I was a little pup! You can see my Instagram video here:

Auntie Sandra and my humom like to meet up every once in a while and go for walks (with us dogs of course!). Bruno recently got a new little human sister so once his family got settled in, we met up for another walk.

IMG_7117

At first I was a little scared of Bruno…I guess I forgot how much bigger he is than me!

Isn’t he adorable??? Just look at that face! He may be big but he’s a loving gentle giant.

Eventually I got more comfortable with him and of course that’s when my  humom took the opportunity to get more pictures. *Rolleyes*

Bruno: Hey Mia, is that a squirrel over there??

Mia: Probably! Let’s go check it out after this silly photoshoot!

IMG_7052

Bruno is so photogenic! And look at those puppy dog eyes! My humom always gushes over him because he has the cutest face and the softest fur!

IMG_7065

Hey wait up Bruno!

IMG_6955

We didn’t play together on the trails but we still enjoyed each others company.

IMG_7072

When we were heading back to the car Bruno didn’t want to go home!

IMG_7076

Bruno: Hey guys, where are you going?? Let’s go this way!

Sadly the walk had to come to an end but my humom reassured me that we would see Bruno again soon!

Bye Bruno! Can’t wait for our next walk!

Have a great weekend everyone!
