Winter construction

It looks like the twins (and their parents) have been busy! Check out this cool snowman.

Oh look, they also made an igloo. I checked it out, and it is very *cool*, but I think I'll stick with my warm bed ;-)

Alpha, what's the matter? Don't you like it when I slobber your face? Jeez!

I mean come on, it's just my way of saying thank you for brushing me. It feels really good!

I just love to show my appreciation (hee, hee).

Nosie rest

Hi there. Alpha's getting the camera just a little close, donchathink?

After all, I'm just trying to rest here -- resting my nosie in particular.

Worm hole?

Hey check this out -- looks like I'm inside a worm hole. I wonder where I'll come out on the other side?

Nah, it's just the bridge connecting Panzerkaserne to their housing units.

And this is how we walk home sometimes from the base.

Treading lightly

You can see how daintily I need to step when I'm off the trail and into the deep snow.

But then, I'm pretty talented.

Wonder what's over there?

So I was walking through the fields, and noticed some interesting smells over yonder. I wonder what's over there?

Only one way to find out. 'scuse me while I head off the trail.

Oops. Nothing here, and I am now in the middle of no where!

OK, well, I did make it back (quite a challenge in the crunchy snow).

Did you miss me?

Walking with mom

I love going out for my walks.

Not only am I happy -- Mom's happy too. Just check out that smile!

Playin' with Mom

Well, actually, there is one more thing to do. It's playtime!

Come on Mom, razz me up again, will ya?

Very Vigorous

Well, after finishing up a nice walk outside, I was a little wet and dirty.

So there was only one thing left to do. My very vigorous rubbing and rolling on the towels.

There! Now I'm beautiful. And I don't even use a brush or hair dryer ;-)

Something's not right

If Alpha is taking a picture of me (big surprise there), then who is taking a picture of Alpha taking the picture?

OMG! Mom got a new camera. Now she is going to start becoming a photographer as well!

Quick -- in the immortal words of Monty Python -- "Run away! Run away!"

Heading out for a walk

I know my pajamas are getting quite the work out. They keep me warm, and keep my legs from getting all snowy.

Alpha and I are out for a nice stroll. But wait a minute. Who's the photographer now?

Wednesday, January 20, 2010

Are you sneaking up on me?

You are certainly low to the ground. Slithering like a snake. Prolly trying to steal my chew-bone.

Just try to take it. I dare ya. Double dare ya.

New fashion trend?

What do you think? Will it catch on?

I call it my Pajama Stadtwerker line. Sporty, warm, and safe! (Hee, hee)

Check out this desktop!

Now that's what I call a desktop!

Well, certainly even better with me on the desk.

But I'm talking Frito-a-Day photos gracing Mom's computer and external monitor whenever it is not being used.

I mean -- could there be anything better?

Alpha, you need to market this. Surely that would keep me in organic doggie kibbles forever!

Sunday, January 17, 2010

Yep, he calls it art

Hey, at least I'm colorful. But really Alpha -- really?

Saturday, January 16, 2010

Woah, sharp right

I don't want to run into Niklas (or is that Levi?). Anyways, gotta make way for the sled.

I love playing in the snow with the twins. OK boys, let's go sledding!

Friday, January 15, 2010

A little devil

Yep, that's me when I get ahold of one of these real chew bones. Man, do I just love 'em. Just don't get between my mouth and the bone (hee, hee)

Pajama Party!

As promised, it's time for my pajama party. Come on, you can all join in too ;-)

Now I must confess, when Alpha first suggested we try on this new outfit, I wasn't too sure it was a good idea. Can you tell?

But then my parents took me out into the COLD and the SNOW. And it started growing on me!

And man, I had no problem running back and forth along the trail, even through the snow. It kept me from getting "snowballs" clumped up in my legs.

You can see Alpha's all bundled up -- but my PJs kept me nice and toasty.

Only my paws got cold after running around for an hour. But Mom took some time to get all the snow and ice out from between my toes, and I was good to go again.

And so I leave you with this smiley face. Nope, I'm not mooning you ;-) Just wiggling my tail "bye, bye" to all my fans.

The big 1000

That's right. This is Frito-a-Day's 1000th blog entry! Can you believe it? That just shows how much I love my girl.

And aren't we a beautiful couple, standing near the flowers in Altensteig, Germany.

Woo-hoo! Big pajama party in the hood is coming up tomorrow!

Be there, or be square!

Something big is coming ...

... you can see it in the sky. Everything looks so electrified (which is very appropriate, given we are at a windmill site near Vaihingen Enz).

Stay tuned to this blog for the important announcement.

My girl, in da hood

My girl in da hood
I want her to stay
Just wishin' she could

Love my Chew Stick

So my parents felt a little sorry for me with only a couple of Xmas presents.

So they decided to give me a chew stick they had been saving. Good choice!

I just LOVE my chew stick.

Bye, Bye Alli and Melissa

Well, my girls have come and gone. Melissa over Xmas, and Alli for Xmas and New Year's.

I had such a great time visiting with them both. But I'm very sorry to see them have to leave. :-(

Oh well, I'll just have to keep posting incredibly cute pictures of moi so they don't miss me too much.

Hasta la vista, Melissa (she's going back to Spain). And Aloha, Alli (36 hours travel back to Hawaii -- all in one day! ;-)

End of Xmas Markets

OK, here's our last look at the German Christmas markets. At least that's one way to get the local s to come out and walk around in the cold weather. Fortunately, I have Mom and Alli to keep me warm!

Here we are at the Stuttgart Xmas Market. It was huge! And you can see that some people will do anything for a Euro!

Sun appears to be setting on Esslingen, and our Xmas markets. They were a lot of fun!

The walled city of Rothenburg o.d.T

Oh look, it's the Three Graces again, this time at Rothenburg ob der Tauber. This is a really cool and well-preserved medieval city.

Yep, this would be around the time of the knights. At least, I think so. Hey, I'm only a dog, remember.

Here we are settin' a spell outside the walled city. Some nice old trees for me to visit (hee, hee).

And the walls themselves are covered, and you can walk along them.

Yes, and I'm very brave for doing so, since I don't really care for heights ;-)

Atop the Burg

Here we are up on top of Burg Hohenzollern. It's a castle up on a small mountain, with awesome views of the fields and villages below.

We walked around the castle walls and checked out all the nooks and crannies. I can't remember if this was a nook or a cranny ;-)
