happynewyear092Happy New Years everyone!

Mom and I went and did a lesson with Ginger at Stony Point Shopping Mall this morning. We walked through Dick’s Sporting goods…. do they know that it is detrimental to my mental stability to have all those balls just laying around? We posed for a picture by the large Christmas tree, but Ginger kept moving, I think the wind was blowing her away.

On the way home mom stopped and got a 6 pack of Leinenkugel’s seasonal beer, Fireside Nut Brown.

Mom hasn’t tried it yet, but she told me the lady at the store thought it was one of the best seasonal beers out….of course! Then mom told the lady about me and I think if the store hadn’t been so busy I would have gotten an invite in…maybe next time. I told mom to put the Fireside Nut Brown in the fridge so we could have one to celebrate 2009!

Reilly the Bouvier is here spending the next couple days with us. He’s cool, we run around in the yard barking and chasing each other. This afternoon we were discussing our 2009 resolutions during a breather. Here are some of the ones we came up with:

  • Walk nicely with our owners so we go for longer walks.
  • Keep the squirrels out of the back yard.
  • Not bark at dogs or humans when we are out in public.
  • Let our owners sleep in at least once a week, otherwise stick our cold wet noses in their ears to wake them up.
  • Help pay for dog food with my job.
  • Not destroy any more basketballs at other people’s houses.
  • Have fun and visit friends.
  • Explore more of Richmond Virginia.
  • Be the best demo dog and PR dog,  for Follow Me Dog Training LLC
  • Keep in touch with my friends all over the U.S.

That is all we had a chance to discuss before we took off running again. Mom said her resolutions are alot like mine, especially the more walking, working  and exploring..yay!

As an official BEERDOG I have to remind everyone to drink responsibly and don’t drive!

Have a safe and happy New Year! I hope 2009 is full of good health, much wealth and faithful friends.

Can we come in?

Can we come in?

I had the coolest weekend with a couple friends that came to stay with me. I had a human friend named Erika, who helped wrangle all the dogs with mom. My buddy Reilly the Bouvier was around and so was Ginger the goldendoodle.

Everybody showed up on friday..Halloween, after Mom and I went to do some work. Mom wanted to do some “distraction” work at a local shopping center. Best part was I got to carry around my fake arm and mom got to make funny jokes to people passing by. Yep she used the line “need a hand” numerous times and managed to crack herself up each time as well.

Having Reilly and Ginger here was a blast because we all get along well and play together really well. I also think it helped that both Mom and Erika were supervising our playtime and made sure none of us got out of hand…like Pepper. I didn’t like it when Reilly stole my ball but it usually ended up in a great game of chase and he would forget it was in his drooly mouth and drop it!

Ginger stuck around for an extra night so we could wrestle and play some before her lesson on Monday. She was able to run around the house with Pepper and I. She was scooting under chairs for sneak attacks on me and succeeded in bumping me off the bed and stealing the toys….

Socialization with dog friends is important, and can be a lot of fun. However I hate dog parks and places where groups of unknown dogs congregate. I don’t feel very safe all the time. I like to know that the dogs have some manners and that the owners know how to read their dogs and are moving around (like at That’s My Dog! Inc for E-collarpalooza!)

I need to go catch up on some sleep, not only did we have visitors all weekend, but I had to work all weekend as well.
