Look at Me!

Here are two pictures. One of me on my first day home with my dad, and one from tonight at 7.5 months old. Look at the difference! I grew up fast!!

I must be the exception to all retrievers because I don't LOVE eating...

Mom fed me at 5:00 and here it still is at 5:30 and I'm still not interested.

Are any of you the exception to the rule? Mom says all her other retrievers ate their food in less than 2 minutes - they ate like it was the last meal they would ever eat...not me! I'm a grazer, eat a little bit at a time. How else could I possibly maintain this beautiful figure?!

Favorite Spot!

This is my favorite spot to sleep in. I love the coolness of the fireplace and I especially like licking the bricks. The texture feels so nice on my puppy tongue! Do you have a favorite place to nap?!?!

I had a great day at Doggy Daycare! It is now 6:45 and I've been asleep right here since 3:45!

Mom doesn't understand that I just want to sleep, but she says I'm beautiful and needs to get in my face with the camera...

Okay, back to sleep. Goodnight!

I went on my first camping trip! It was SO FUN!!!!!!!!! I got to chew on a TON of sticks, go for an awesome hike and play in waterfalls (I also pulled my Dad down a big hill because I was so excited...but I don't want to embarass him too bad with any pictures). We slept in a tent and even got to spend some time sleeping WITH Mom and Dad. I sleep in my crate every night, but they were nice enough to let me cuddle with them in the morning after my potty break! It was SO COOL! I love being outside, playing in the leaves, and feeling the wind in my luscious blond locks. Haven't I gotten BIG! I weigh 50 pounds now!

Trip to Ohio

In September Mom and I went on a BIG trip to Ohio! We drove 12 hours together from Atlanta to Ohio and I did a pretty great job. I only got car sick through the Atlanta traffic...but Mom also gave me dramamine. I pretty much just slept the whole time. We stayed in a hotel in Kentucky and man was it fun! I got to jump from bed to bed...although I fell short a couple times and landed half on the bed and half on the floor. Mom thought I was pretty funny. Ohio was great though and I think I got over my fear of the car when I was there. I met my Aunt Darla the black lab and we played a little bit. She is an old dog so she didn't really like to play with me. We did go for a walk in the woods and she and I ran through acres and acres of forrest and I had a great time running with her. It was the first time Mom let me off the leash and I loved being FREE!!!! I also got to play with my cousin Pete the Beagle. Mom has some pictures and videos so enjoy!

Darla and I just hanging out in the Kitchen

Tired after running around in the woods!

Woof! I'm BACK!!!

What a busy 3 months it has been! My Mom is to blame for lack of posts and has no excuses! A lot has happened since July. Mom is back to work full time...Dad works entirely TOO much and I now go to Doggy Daycare!!! Mom thought I was doing a great job staying alone while they were at work, but of course back then I was only 4 or 5 months old and I have TONS of energy so I started a project.

I thought Mom and Dad's walls could use a little character.

As well as their windowsills...

 and molding along the floor.

Seriously what would a retriever's home be like if it didn't have some "doggie love" done to it. So they found the greatest doggy daycare place and I go there 2 or 3 times a week. When I come home I'm so tired I fall asleep as soon as I eat dinner! That gives Mom and Dad some human time. So glad I'm back and I can't wait to catch up with what has been happening in all of your doggie lives!
