Working on my chew-bone

Ahhh. Chompin' away on my chew-bone.

And it's really yummy. Can you tell?

Not to mention really large.

But hey, I'm a big dog too ;-)

Large and in charge

Look at me. I'm king of this field.

Go find me some court jesters!

Oh never mind, Alpha's already here (hee, hee).

Wowsa. Those are some big logs.

Sunny woods

Oh, would you look at those cool woods.

And me luxuriating in the sunshine.

Neat place to visit.

In the woods

Taking a walk in some really cool forest while on a car trip.

Looking around and trying to observe any arboreal creatures.

Look a me on the stump. Maybe I'm one.

Look out Mom while I try to go climb that tree behind you (hee, hee)

It's a bumper crop

I'm here to tell ya, they grow 'em big in Germany.

These guys don't like to use any weed killer.

And why should they -- just look at how pretty I am, er,I mean the dandelions.

What's that? You want me to run through the field?

OK, if you say so.

Look out, here I come.

I don't want to get stung by any bees, 'K?

Thanks, that was lots of fun.

Especially running through the dandelion fields.

Scoping it out

Is that a big dog? If so, I'm ready to bark ferociously.

Nah, it's just a goat. Looks kinda cute.

But Alpha's got the leash ... just in case ;-)

Me's thirsty

Thank goodness for my giant water bowl.

Hee, hee.

Garden pots

Let's face it.

I make these look good.

'Nuff said.

Pretty comfy

Hi guys. My parents just got back from another trip. What is up with them?

This time I got to stay with a nice German couple, Herr und Frau Beuttler. They live in a great house a few towns away, and are also right off some walking trails. I got to walk multiple times per day. Woo-hoo!

My lambswool throw was one of my favorite things to sleep on when I was staying at the Beuttlers. Good thing my parents brought it over. It's very comfy.

See, here I am sleeping on it at home. Doesn't that look inviting?

OK Alpha, why don't you just let me snooze. I think everybody gets the idea how much I love my lambswool throw.

Whachu lookin' at?

And whachu doin' with that camera Alpha?

Don't you think you've taken enough photos of me yet?

Pro'ly not (LOL). OK, go for it one more time, if you must.

Peeking in the sun

Yep. Here I am, lying in the sun. And just peeking a little.

Hey, it's bright in the sun, donchaknow.

Friday, February 18, 2011

I adorn every computer

Well, at least those in my household.

But I think I could make some megabucks if I just market the Frito-a-Day screensaver.

Whadya think?

Isa beautiful quilt

So, I bet you have been missing me, right?

Well, Alpha has no excuses, even though he *claims* to have been really busy. I mean, come on!

It's all about priorities Alpha; now get them straight: Frito-a-Day first, then followed by everything else (hee, hee)

So anyways, back to this post. Isn't that a really beautiful quilt? This is one my Mom made as a wedding present for our cousin's daughter.

Oh wow, look at that. It's a really BIG quilt as well. It's a king size quilt.

I'll bet that was some kinda sewing challenge, Mom. Way to go girl!

And of course, the quilt has been properly "christened" with my presence ;-)

OK, now Alpha, get back to work and post those missing Frito-a-Day entries!

Looks a little warm

We're both looking a little bit warm. Well, that would sure be nice right-about-now ;-)

Don't worry Mom, we call that a nice "glow".

And thanks for walking me in all sorts of weather conditions.

Sunny doorstep

You may have seen me here before. This is our doorstep to the small patio and garden we have in Germany. It faces southwest, so we get nice warm afternoon sun.

And of course, I look especially good when the sun is shining on moi.

Bringin' out the big tongue

This was a nice little work get-together, and luck me, doggies were invited.

You can see it was pretty warm, but they sat us under some shade, so we were OK.

Aaaacccckkkkkk! Woah Alpha, careful with the ears, eh?

Let's just do some nice petting, 'K?

OBTW -- belated Valentine's Day -- Alpha, you dropped the ball on that one ;-)

Sunday, February 13, 2011

Loungin' again

Hey, look who's loungin' with Mom again.

Let's face it, I'm one lucky doggie.

And you are pretty lucky too.

After all, you also got a close-up of my rubber nosie.

Waiting for Spring

Oh look at the nice Spring day in that photo.

I'm waiting for it to arrive once again. Come on baby, you can do it.

Let's just agree we got Winter early enough, and let's call it good, 'K?

Friday, February 11, 2011

Picket line

Don't worry, I'm not crossing the picket line.

The picket line is crossing moi. (Ha, ha)

Thursday, February 10, 2011

I'm back now

Sorry about being away.

Let's all just blame Alpha, 'K?

OK, you can let me in (to your hearts) again ;-)

L'il shaggy

This must be before my last haircut.

I haven't seen that much shagginess for some time.

I could use some of that hair right now in the cold.

Tuesday, February 08, 2011

Mom and me

Looks like this was during one of our Volksmarches.

Taking a break along the trail. We really walk our butts off sometimes.

Monday, February 07, 2011

Oink, oink

No, not me.

The thing I'm standing on.

Get it?

Sunday, February 06, 2011

Done with my roll

Looking pretty spunky after my bath and roll, donchathink?

Yes, and rather glisteny, too.

Awww, resting after a tiring roll.

Seeking the sun

Our house is not very sunny.

So I like to seek out the sun rays when (and where) they do come through.


Sure Alpha, you can take a close-up for my fans (hee, hee).

Lounging with Mom

Mom's lounging in the lounge chair.

So that means I'm lounging with Mom.

Me likes it!

Thursday, February 03, 2011

Wishing the snow were gone (now!)

I like looking back and seeing these photos with Mom wearing shorts.

Now that's the kinda day I like for my walk.

Uh-Oh. Hey Mom?

Will you make sure this circling hawk doesn't mistake me for some rodentia?

Wednesday, February 02, 2011

No more photos, please

After I've had enough of Alpha, I just start to boycott his photos.

I mean, he'll have to stop when he has no willing subject. right?

Maybe not.

At least it's a nice day for a walk.

Tuesday, February 01, 2011

Taking a break on our walk

This is a nice field to walk through.

We thought it would be a good time to take a break.

Hey, look at that cool crocus.

Pretty neat it is blooming when nothing else is.
