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!

Friday Fun – My First Low Tide!

Hi Guys! Nymeria here! Hope everyone had a great Easter Long weekend! I sure did! I got to experience my first low tide!!! IT WAS AMAZING!!!!! The best part was I got to experience it for the first time with my bestie Avalon and the rest of my pack!

As you know Wilhelmina and Mia have gone to low tide lots of times and boy do they always have fun! Now it was my turn!

Hurry up and throw the ball mom!

Notice Mia’s fleece is falling off? BOL! Yup that’s typical Mia for you…she doesn’t even notice it, she just keeps playing. The water is still quite cold in April so our humom wanted to make sure Mia didn’t get too cold.

Mia says that if we’re really well behaved humom will take us lots more times this summer! I promise I’ll be on my best behavior!

Have you guys ever been to low tide? Do you love it as much as we do?

Friday Forest Fun – Hidden Beach!

Hey Everyone! It’s another Forest Fun Friday for us here but this time we’re going to a forest that Nymeria has never been before! This is one of my favorite places to go because it has a hidden beach!!! I didn’t even know about it until my pal Bruno shared its secret location with me! You can read about it here!

Unfortunately…my humom forgot how to get there but luckily she had me to track it down! What a perfect new adventure for Nymeria and me!

C’mon Nymeria! Follow me! We’re going to track down the hidden beach!

Are you coming Mom? Hurry up! You’re holding us back!

Hmmm…which way do we go now…

Don’t worry, I got this.

Hmmm…maybe I can get a better view from up here!

I think I found it Nymeria! I recognize this path!

Mia! Wait for me!

Mom, are you coming?? Stop taking pictures, let’s go!

I did it Mom! I found it! We’re finally here!

C’mon Nymeria! Let’s go explore!

This place is still as beautiful as I remembered it!

I love it here! I don’t ever want to leave!

Don’t worry Nymeria! Mom will bring us back here lots more times!

I found a delicious giant snowball to eat too! Yum yum! What a thirst quencher after all that exploring!

On the car ride home, I was trying to convince my humom that I wasn’t tired so we could go play some more. I don’t think I was very convincing…and Nymeria was no help at all. She was totally passed out in the back!

I guess I’ll take a nap too…

I can’t wait for our next adventure! Hope everyone has a fun weekend!

Sunday Funday – Puppy Sitting!

Hi Guys! Nymeria here! Mia FINALLY let me take over the blog today since today’s post doesn’t really involve her much. She was too busy HIDING from a tiny little puppy named–

Mia: Excuse me?? How dare you say that?? I wasn’t hiding…I was getting out of your way since you two were running around everywhere!

Well it’s my blog post today so I’m going to say you were HIDING! HA! Anyway, before I was RUDELY interrupted…I was going to say..the puppy’s name is Radar!

He’s a 4 month old French Bulldog and boy does he have a lot of energy! This chubby little nugget was non-stop!

My humom tried really hard to get some good photos but all she got were white blurs! BOL!

1DF867BE-9219-4E3F-B12C-26A1E2FF898B

We had so much fun playing together, both my humom and Radar’s humom were really surprised! (Because of our size difference)  But my humom was really proud of me because I was really gentle with him.

He settled into our place quite quickly! The first thing he did when he came in was grab a bone and went on the bed to chew on it! What a character!

He also helped himself to our toy bin!

But I didn’t mind, I was good at sharing my toys. Well…maybe not my favorite ones…but I let him have my snake rope. (Actually it used to be Mia’s but she doesn’t play with it anymore).

My humom started to miss Mia’s puppy days until Radar had an accident on the rug…and then in the bedroom (that one was a STINKY ONE!)..and then another accident under the dining table…in the hallway….where did this guy hold all his pee??? Even though she had placed a pee pad on the floor…he never used it. BOL!

Mia never really warmed up to him by the time Radar’s humom came to pick him up, but I sure hope he come back!

I hope he doesn’t come back!

Hope you guys had a great weekend!

Double Mischief Monday- Caught in the act!

It’s another Monday and that means another installment of Mischief Monday!

This time though, my humom thought it was pretty funny…no no, she’s feeling fine don’t worry. She thought it was funny this time because she was so focused on me that little did she know…she also caught Nymeria in the act!

She didn’t realize she caught Nymeria on camera until she went back much later to look through her photos! BOL!

BUSTED!

Hope you guys make it through Monday! Did you get into any mischief??

Pee S. In case you were wondering what we were rolling in…it was sea otter poop!! It’s like the jackpot of poops cuz it’s super fishy and stinky and leaves this PAWSOME dark green color on your body and clothes! It also tastes super yummy too! :p

Fashion Friday

Happy Friday furiends! Christmas is just around the corner, I can’t believe it! I thought I would take this opportunity to show off my new Christmas collar in a Fashion Friday post! I love reading about my pal Duffy and his Fashion Friday posts I thought I’d give it a try! Hope he doesn’t mind! 😉

As you know…I have quite a collection of collars. Let’s just say my humom (and Wilhelmina’s humom) are a little obsessed with dressing us up in pretty collars and jackets. We’re known as the Best Dressed dogs of the Forest. BOL!

Well, last year, one particular collar caught my humom’s eye…

ugly sweater collar

…The Ugly Sweater collar from GrayHound Collections.

Unfortunately, by the time she was ready to order it, they were sold out!!!! She was devastated so this year she made sure she wouldn’t miss out and ordered it as soon as it became available. She also bought one for my bestie Wilhelmina because let’s face it…besties gotta have matching gear right???

What was even MORE exciting was that it was a perfect match with my Christmas sweater from Chilly Dog Sweaters!

Here’s a shot of my—

Nymeria: Hey Mia, watcha doing??

Mia: Uhhhh excuuse me do you mind??? I’m kind of in the middle of my Fashion Friday post here?? Stop photobombing!

3C3D6213-5BF1-4E3B-B7C5-69E155F00414

Nymeria: Sheesh, chill out! Get it? CHILL out? Chilly dog sweater?? BOL! I’m so funny….

Sigh…Anyways..before I was RUDELY interrupted…Here is a shot of my reindeer sweater!

Here’s a close up of my Christmas collar!

Do you see the little reindeer on it? Cute huh?

With the weather getting colder, I need to start wearing thicker sweaters since I don’t have a lot of furs. This one is–

Nymeria: Hey are you done yet? Wanna go play??

Mia: Arrg……Nymeria! You interrupted my photoshoot again!

Nymeria: What? You’re STILL doing your stupid Fashion Friday post?? How many photos do you need to take? Can I be in this shot? CHEEEEESE!

Mia: Sigh…….FINE. I give up. Let’s just go play now.

Nymeria: YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Breakthrough!

We made our humom cry the other night…but don’t worry! They were happy tears! Actually I even surprised myself because Nymeria and I played together!

After we had a long evening walk, we had dinner and then we started wrestling! Our humom couldn’t believe it she had to capture it on video!

We played for quite a while and we made quite a mess! We were all over the couch and all over the floor! Our humom didn’t mind, she was just so happy we were playing she didn’t care.

9BAA69AC-55BE-4645-A011-E370646747EC

Nymeria kept trying to get me play when I was taking a water break! This pup doesn’t slow down!

Oops! Did we make this mess???

53FFB069-1D67-42E8-A0E6-57D2B7E78BEE

Man I’m really tired after all that playing!

We were utterly exhausted after all that playing, it’s time for bed! Good night!

Tongue Out Tuesday

Hi furiends!

It’s another installment of Tongue Out Tuesday and—

Nymeria: Hey wait for me! I want to be part of  Tongue Out Tuesday! 

Mia: Sigh….well hurry up!! Geez, why do little sisters always have to be part of EVERYTHING you do….

Nymeria: Okay, I’m coming! I’m coming! 

ANYhoo, as I was saying…it’s another installment of Tongue Out Tuesday on this cloudy day, but that doesn’t stop us from having fun!

My humom says that this is probably one of her favorite TOTs because I have a goofy derpy face and my ears are flopping everywhere. What do you think??

Have a happy Tuesday! Keep those tongues hanging out!
