One of the greatest memories for me was the beautiful dirt trails surrounded by the colorful landscape at Best Friends. So when mom & dad took me to this park, I thought I was walking down memory lane... my own little piece of the days when my original "cart runs" were on the dirt roads at Best Friends.
This was Rhu-tastic! I LOVED IT! There was no treats, no toys, no crowds and NO STOPPING me. I was pumped! I walked further and harder than I have in a long time all the while my tail wagging round 'n round like a helicopter prop. This time they had to keep up with me!! Course it may just have been that silly holiday thing they put on my neck that made me totally look like a "Jester" and I wanted to get by the other dogs, but quick! Better this though than the Santa hat - now that's where I drew the line, paws down! One of the girls at the office thought I would look soooo cute in this freakin' Santa hat, but geez WHY would I EVER need to look cuter? There are a few photos that completely express how I felt in that silly suit so you should totally check my pictures out!
There were trails here, I mean DIRT! None of this city paved stuff! Oh and lots of brush for me to grab onto as I walked by - I LOVE to do that. I saw quite a few dogs too though they were kinda scared of how big I was in my cart... dressed like something from a deck of cards...with garland trim...around the ENTIRE CART...thanks mom!! GRRRH. How is a guy like me supposed to keep his tough image up with all these women dressing him?
My physical therapy is now only two times a week and my front end is really getting stronger woo-hoo! Mom & Dad say they think I've grown but actually, I think they've just gotten smaller - now who's the wimp? They've put me in the water treadmill 3 times but mom says I smell bad when I come out - I kinda think she's right on that one. But if it makes me get better than what's a guy to do? So I'll keep a good attitude like I always do.
I think I could possibly hold the world record for the quickest toy-squeaker-destroyer! Even those ones that claim to be indestructible? Well, I think I'm at about 4 minutes on one those suckers and they are completely silenced - that actually disappoints me for what is a toy without it's squeaking ability, nothing more than a baby's sleeping pal.. that is sooo Ho-Hum. Besides, once I silence the evil toy, the only thing left to do is to channel one of my many charming personalities. Once I decide which one, I look at mom, with my pleading brown eyes, add a really BIG sigh...Oh and if I lay my head down right next to the toy that is like a hole in one!! I can count on her coming back from the store with another one, and if not her, one of the girls here will buy me one. Oh and I'm not very good at recycling with the exception of water bottles I can smash one of those in 10 or 20 seconds tops! But if one of my squeaky toys stops squeaking, that's it, I am flat OVER that toy. AND, do not try and bring out one of my old toys, with your fake cutesy-coaxing voice, you know that one that is WAY higher than your normal one? That will NOT work because one sniff and, well... Have you NOT seen the size of my nose??? I can smell my old slobber anywhere. Yuck, I do NOT want to be patronized that way. Out with the old, even if it is only 5 minutes, and on with the new!
It's getting close to Christmas and I have been having warm and fuzzy dreams about it, but last night, I had this nightmare! And, when I awoke, why, someone had given the fur on my head a makeover and I looked just like Donald Trump! No Really!! Check out my pic! I'll bet he can afford lots of toys...hmmm, something to ponder!
I shall report on my howl-i-days and I wish each and every one a wonderful, magical, "giving" Christmas. There are many of us needing homes or help while we're waiting for one. I know the magical feeling of finding that special home. I will always be eternally grateful for my friends at Best Friends. If you get a chance, check out how great if feels to sponsor an animal in the name of a special friend or relative - Mom & Dad say NO card or present ever felt as good to give.
