I don't know what I'm doing up here! Hey girls?
I know that horses like this, but I tried it and can't say its growing on me. It is, however, stuck ON me. I keep chasing it and end up falling in the holes between the bales.

Hey, what is the big deal? Is somebody trying to get rid of me? Dropping this in the water, thereby tempting me almost beyond reason to jump in.......c'mon Chena! Are you trying to drown me here or what?
Passed that test. I will just sit here and look adorable. Oh look! My reflection is so cool.
Yeah, I think I could run this show. Tune in next time when I leave everyone home and take the 'ole canoe out for a spin by myself.

I get along just fine with cats. I love the way they run from me, shake in their little feline boots at the sight of me, and generally respond the way cats are supposed to.
Except Sparrow that is. This cat is way out of line. She is NOT afraid of me, and (to tell you the truth) she makes me nervous! She just doesn't fit the mold, and she goes out of her way to show me her in-your-face bravery and mockery of small puppies.
Just look at her. See the evil lurking behind those eyes?
For example, she will stand in the middle of the sidewalk and not let me pass. She arches her back and hisses and shows me her tonsils, her mouth opens so BIG. Cats have big teeth, I am learning.
Or, she will stand her ground in the living room, and make me go the other way around the couch, just to get to my day bed. And she flattens her ears and then kind of laughs at me in a smug irritating growl.
She can be up on a chair, but she glares at me and I am afraid to even get too close. My routine with the other cat, (the normal I-am-afraid-of-dogs-even-short-puppies one) is to dance all around the chair, nipping at its tail, as it spins frantically around trying to anticipate my next move. Its quite fun. But not Sparrow. She makes ME spin around trying to figure HER out.
At night, the last thing I do before bed is I get to go out for a walk. I love to find a cat and chase it, for a satisfying romp before I end my mischief for the day. But when I see Sparrow and try to get her to run, she actually turns her back on me or even (gasp) lays down! As if to make fun of me! This cat needs to be taught a lesson. Yessiree.
Will you please teach it to her, for me? Puleeeeez?

Here he is. 2 lbs of Yorkie/Pug/Chihuahua. When you say his breed, it sounds like you are sneezing! Yorkipugawawa! Bless you.
His name is Windsor. She named him after a small sweet town in England, where she visited recently with my mom. But Windsor is not small and sweet! He IS small, I grant you that. But boy, that little guy has sharp teeth! And a LOUD bark!
And he is not much taller than a can of soda pop.
I'm not at all jealous. After all, whenever my mom would pick him up and smoochie his face, and talk baby talk, she would always come and pick me up and cuddle me too. Just as long. I think. Ok, shut up...who's counting? Anyway, I really wanted to get to play with the little guy. I mean REALLY play. Like, ya know, taste him. Just a few bites. And they just wouldn't let me. Windsor wanted to play too, with me. But all they would do is put our crates next to each other so we could bark back and forth. Well that was kind of fun too.
Did I tell you Windsor has a thing against shoes? I think he is mad because they are bigger than he is. Whatever it is, he likes to try to tear them apart.
But by far the best thing about Windsor is that he knows how to bring a HUGE smile to Janet's face. I mean huge. I can tell he makes her happy. And she makes him happy too. So its okay that she used to think I was the cutest puppy on earth and now she doesn't. I can roll with that. (I also like to roll on road kill, but that is another story). My point is they just fit. Like peas and carrots. Watermelon and salt. Puppy kibble and me. You get the idea.
Yep, a great new friend. I cannot wait to go and see him again soon. Maybe if he is a little bigger I can use him for a hockey puck.
Oh, remember what I told you about shoes, Windsor, and murder?
WATCH THIS VIDEO and tell me if I am wrong!

This is me.
Get the picture?
Well, it wasn't so bad. My mom loves road trips, and she thinks everyone else should too. So when she decided to drive almost 600 miles in ONE DAY, she figured it would be pretty fun.
And I actually did enjoy all the stops. I got to get out and explore a lot. And they would run around and try to wear me out with a LOT of playing and a LOT of new toys. A dog can learn to live with this human guilt thing. Besides, I got to do this:
Which really felt like breaking all the rules. Its a good feeling.
I liked playing with and barking at bugs!
We saw lots and lots of pretty scenery along the way. Some of it, I must confess, I slept through.
More about my trip later. I have to tell you all about my new friend!
