IBM Klub

This is for our neighbors back home, Ralph and Veronica. Ralph works at IBM.

See Ralph, you can move overseas with us, and still keep working at IBM -- this "Klub" is walking distance from our house!

So come on over!

Bath time again?

Well, as winter winds down, it's getting a little messy out there. So you know what that means ... yep, bath time!

OK, now that I'm clean, Alpha has to dry me off a little and do the buff -- his somewhat feeble attempt.

And then, of course, I have to do the real drying off myself. You've seen movies of how vigorous I am when I dry myself. But here is something you don't see everytime -- the ellusive "froggy legs". Woo hoo, aren't you lucky!

Long leash

Hey Mom. This is a side trail, and there's nobody else on it. Can you let me off the leash please? It will also help make sure it doesn't get in the picture (hee, hee)

Frozen niblets?

Wow -- that makes me cold just looking at this photo.

Yep, after playing in the snow, I would surely have frozen niblets ... if I still had my niblets ;-).

See, I can be thankful for small favors (hee, hee)

Frito, Kommen Sie

Hey, look who it is. It's my neighbors, and their asking me to come over to give Niklas (or is that Levi?) some Küsse (kisses).

Well, OK, since you asked. Look out ... here I come!

Didja miss me?

Hi y'all. Alpha was slacking this morning. So some of you may have noticed I wasn't here first thing today.

Well, fortunately, Alpha redeemed himself. Oh, and actually, Mom is the photographer for this shaggy shot. And frankly, doncha think I'm worth the wait (hee, hee).

Cross-country skiing

We've had some snow this year in Böblingen, Germany. So Alpha decided to get out the cross country skis, and check it out.

For me, it's pretty much macht-nichts, since I'm walking either way (hee, hee -- threw a little German at you ;-) I just want to get outside!

And here's a very brief movie of our snowy adventure:

Wanna see a movie?

You guys deserve to see me in action. This is almost a full-length feature film.

Perhaps you can tell I just had my bath? Am I a great actor, or what!

Time for some rollin'

Well, guess who just finished his bath? And you know what that means! It's time for some rollin'!

Oh yeah, and some froggy legs too! Gotta dry that belly fur, er, hair (hee, hee).

Mom wins (this time)

Well, I have to admit it. In the cute competition, Mom wins this round.

Lookin' pretty good there Mom. Just wait until next time -- I'm gonna rise to the occasion.

Someone's looking a little shaggy.

But, hey, on moi it looks pretty good, doncha think?

Means I'm goin' back

Wow. Look at that haircut. Clearly a blast from the past.

This was at the bridge in Prague, Czech Republic.

Do you see the very shiny dog on that plaque. Alpha had me rub it with my paw (like thousands of other tourists).

That means (legend has it) that I'll be traveling back to Prague in the future.

Well, since it is my parents favorite city in Europe, I think that's probably true.

Rumor has it, Alpha my try his next marathon in Prague. We'll just have to wait and see.

Outstanding in our field ;-)

Hey, check out my girl and me in this beautiful field. I think we look pretty outstanding, don't you?

In fact, we look so good, I thought you might want to see another shot. What a great couple we make. Darn we're cute ;-)

Hey, since we saw Alli yesterday, I thought it might be a good time for a flashback -- what do you think?

I guess you approve Alli, since you are revvin' up my butt! OK, here we go!

Happy Valentines Day!

Hey, look who it is.

Just thought we'd wish everybody a Happy Valentines Day.

Especially my girl, Alli. And my other "girl" -- Mom.

Happy V-Day you guys -- and everyone else out there in web-land.

Nope. Not me this time.

But check out that shed. Only thing you can see is the door. Everything else is totally covered with vines. Kinda cool.

I can see pavement

Well, things are looking up ...

At least I can see some pavement now.

Spring -- here's hopin' you are somewhere around the corner.

Rather icy

And with the warmer weather, comes melting snow, which then freezes, and makes the trails rather icy and treacherous.

Luckily atleast I have 4-paw drive. Mom and Alpha have to walk in the snow off the edge of the trails.

Snowman's gettin' skinny

Yep, it's been warming up around here.

Guess who's losin' weight.

Well, it's not moi if that helps ;-)

Meet my groomer

Yep, I have attendants, donchaknow.

See, Alpha is my groomer today. He's making my fur all nice and smooth.

Good job Alpha. Maybe I'll give you a treat now (hee, hee)

Monday, February 08, 2010

Gettin' too friendly

Oops. Perhaps I'm getting just a little too friendly.

'Scuse me while I back out of this predicament (hee, hee).

Sunday, February 07, 2010


Woah! Alpha takes this game a little too seriously, methinks ;-)

Check it out -- he's dangling me (well, OK, my feet are still on the ground ;-)

But hey, this is my boney, and I'm not gonna let go!

So ... gimme, gimme, gimme! I will prevail ... I always do (hee, hee)

Saturday, February 06, 2010

Wanna play?

Here ya go. You can grab my squeaky bone. Just try to take it away.

Bet you can't get it from me. Come on. Keep trying.

Friday, February 05, 2010

Just finished rolling

Can you tell I just finished rolling?

I know, I'm very cute and adorable. And a little shy, can you tell?

Thursday, February 04, 2010

Glad to meet ya

Well, hey, how are you doing? Very happy to meet ya!

Sure, you can shake my paw anytime.

Spacemen arrive

Yo! Space Dudes! What are you doing in our Ramstein AFB hotel room?

Oh, you're from the fire department? Then you must be here about the smoke alarm that went off at 3:00 AM.

Yeah, that was rather annoying. Though I did get an unexpected walk out of it (hee, hee).

Tuesday, February 02, 2010

Belly Rub

It's time for some belly rubbing. Oh yeah, now we're talking.

And could you throw a little ear scratching in too? That's right. Thanks Alpha!

Pair of cutie pies

What a pair of cuties!

Normally I am clearly the cutest, but in this photo, Mom is giving me a good run for the money.
