Gimme five!

Gimme five, Jack! And don't look back.

Oops, I looked back. And found Alpha playing with my paws and waking me up from a sound sleep.

But at least it made it into the blog (hee, hee). So I guess it was worth it.

Wind me up

See how I get all wound up during my bath drying routines?

Aacckk! That's too much. Must calm down ;-)

Musta been day dreaming

Oops -- sorry about my being away. I must have been day dreaming.

Yeah, that's it, just laying outside, looking up at the clouds.

And will you look at that: it's a puppy cloud (doing a upward dog pose).

No wonder I was distracted! (hee, hee)

Someone's looking a little shaggy

You humans have the same problem. Sometime before you get your next haircut, things start to get a little out of control in the hair department.

Well I have a tougher problem, because this is also my fall and winter coat. So I need to sport some longer hair as the cold weather arrives.

Don't worry, though, for I will always remain cute, no matter the length of my "shag".

Art? Really Alpha?

Alpha, what's up?

Are you calling this art? I mean, really Alpha?

Why don't you just admit it when you overexpose a photo, and you have to play with all the iPhoto tools just to salvage something.

Hee, hee.

OK, I admit, I kinda like the way you can see all of my individual hairs. This would be a cool pen & ink drawing.

Panic time

Can you tell why?

Look closely. There's a hole in my last boney!

Mom!!! Help!!!

Quite the view

Here we are on that new walking route, and check out the view we have.

Doesn't Mom look good after walking up that big hill?

Oh, OK, I guess we'll let Alpha get into a picture too.

Yes, that is quite the view.

Flowers on my walk too

We took another route on our walk today, and found some more flowers.

Just had to get another shot, didn't you Alpha?

Well, at least Mom looks good ;-)

You say grass, I say veggies

You say tomahto, I say tomayto.

It's all in how you look at it.

To me, these are my veggies.

And I always like to munch some on the edge of our driveway following our walks.

That's Mr. Sunshine to you

You may know that my profile picture on Google is taken with a sunflower in the background. Well, this one multiplies that by about a hundred. All not really sunflowers, but cool yellow daisy-like flowers. And lots of them.

I wonder if they smell good?

Nah, didn't really think they would.

But they still are nice looking --- almost as much as moi.

That's a cool screensaver

Look what my 'rents keep on their computers. Thanks to Alli I do believe.

She helped Mom turn on a screensaver made of all the past Frito-a-Day pictures. And her desktop is a changing highlight of some of the best shots. Then Alpha got into the game as well.

Wow. I'm feeling pretty good. I'd say my family suitably adores me ;-)

Dramatic sky

Wow, that's a pretty dramatic sky and cool light.

See how nice and bright Mom and I look.

Lots of different weather conditions over on the hillside.

Wednesday, September 08, 2010


We were out on a walk, and it was getting hot.

So Alpha got me into a stream and "cooled me off".

And this is how I ended up? Alpha, could you include some grooming next time as well?

I do have my public image, donchaknow.

Pfftt to your camera

Alpha -- sometimes you take too many pictures. I turn my head to the left or to the right to avoid the paparazzi. Or sometimes I just tell you how I feel --- Ppfftt!

OK, you got your shot, and I've had enough. Can I go now?

Monday, September 06, 2010

Don't mess with moi

Don't I look mean and nasty? Better stay outta my way!

Nah, just finishing off a piece of chew-bone.

I'm really extraordinarily happy, even though you can't tell from my expression.

Checkin' me out

Can you see in the door -- some one is checking me out.

Oh, that's Mom, wondering if I'm OK out here on the steps.

Yep, Mom, I'm doing fine. Just another form of my loungin'.

I really do love the sun, and how it warms up the stone steps.

Really loungin'

Yeah, so that was nice yesterday with Alpha.

But *this* is really loungin'. From when we were on vacation in Switzerland.

No need to hurry out of bed. So I'm just loungin' here with Mom.

Doin' a little Timone impersonation.

And really enjoying to down comforters, the sun, and the petting.

Now *this* is the life! (And Mom looks pretty happy too ;-)

Friday, September 03, 2010


Hey, check this out. Alpha felt like loungin' in the back yard. Sounds good to me ;-)

So I decided to join him.

Now this is the life. Loungin' under a tree: not too warm, not too cool.

I could get into this Alpha!

I can swing both ways

I am a very flexible fellow. I can "swing" both ways.

I don't know what you are thinking about.

See -- I can swing my head to the left.

And I can swing my head to the right.

Or I can just stick out my tongue. Now get your mind out of the gutter.

Finger painting?

I don't know what's going on with this photo -- don't ask me.

But I think it looks like something you make with kindergarden finger paint -- don't you?

Seems pretty clear who's who even in total silhouette.

I guess we could say it is .. interesting ... but that's as far as I'm going ;-)
