Well, you guys are really lucky, see.
'Cause Alpha got a bunch of photos of me drying off that just show how my cuteness is beyond comparison.
And I get a little spunky too when I do my rollin' rollin' rollin'.
Just because I love you guys, one more picture of cuteness for good measure.
You really can never have too many of those ;-)

You see, after the bath, when I'm soaking wet, Mom or Alpha bundle me up in a towel and dry off most of the water.
It's nice and cozy, and I really like it. At least for a few minutes.
'Cause after that, I just have to roll!

Here's the good news: it's a little bit warmer lately. So I'm really happy, and excitedly running back and forth as we wander down the trail.
Here's the bad news: It makes for a messy volksmarch (especially when you are low to the ground like me)
So you can bet I'll be in for a bath, I'm quite sure.

Was ist ihre name, bitte?
Mein name ist Herr Wiggles. (And that's pronounced "Hair Viggles")
You should have seen my little wiggley butt on my recent volksmarch. I was so happy, both my tail and my butt were wiggling away.
So this is now my German name: "Herr Wiggles"

This reminds me ... we have a chew-bone crisis going on over in Germany.
Haven't found these yummy rawhide bones over here yet ... and I ate up my last one a while ago.
I might have to request assistance from my stateside fans ;-)

So you might think this is just some cute picture of me on a cobblestone walkway.
Well, cute yes; but not just any walkway. Get this ...
We live about 6 miles (10 km) from the base where Alpha works. And it turns out, you can get there by paths that run through the woods. In fact, there is an old "tank trail" that runs all the way to the base. Yep, imagine German Panzer tanks rolling over these cobblestones -- after all, we live very close to another base call Panzer Kaserne.
Anyhow ... so Alpha took me running into work with him! How cool is that? Then Mom came and met us just inside the gate, and I got a ride home (while Alpha had to work ;-)
This was soooooo cool. We even did it twice last week. Check out this short video.
And no laughing at Alpha's ear muffs -- he's listening to his iPod Shuffle through them ;-)
Soon, no one will be able to call me "meine Kartoffel" again. Or if they do, they will have to say "meine kleine Kartoffel" (hee, hee). Come on, you can all use Google Translator.

This is what I'm talking about! Notice Mom and Alpha are wearing only a sweater (or less). What a beautiful day for a volksmarch!
And what a cool place. Walking right through the middle of a vineyard. We'll have to check this out again in the summer, when the grapes are growing.

Had some nice days recently. Even though it was cold, we got some bright sun, and that was enough to get the melt going.
That's one reason my parents put the sweater on me ... 'cause I get a really dirty undercarriage in the melt.
Perhaps another bath will be in order ;-)

Guess what ... the parents have begun their German lessons. Could you tell? ;-)
They are learning their "der, die, das" nouns. This is when it is easier just being the dog, er, der Hund (hee hee)
Now for extra credit, and to complete the list of possible articles:
Der Hund und die Laternenmast und das Haus. I just bet you can figure that out.
OK, this one is for Alli, since I am sure she would make a complete sentence:
Der Hund und die Laternemast sind vor dem Haus. I wonder if Alpha and Mom could even understand that ;-)
I recommend you say a language prayer for the parents ;-)

These volksmarches usually takes us over wide expanses of fields, which is nice during the winter, at least when it's sunny.
But other times they take us through groves of trees, which are waiting to be harvested. Man, check out that collection of future wooden beams.
These Germans sure do know how to steward their resources.

Ya see, as we were on our volksmarch, I could hear or smell something under the grass.
So I went mole diving ;-) Kept sticking my nosie under the snow, for better sniffs.
But the little bugger got away. Oh well, sometimes it's just fun to look for those "moley, moley, molies"
