Before and After

So here am I today BEFORE my haircut.

Well, how's this for a comparison?

And now here I am AFTER my haircut!

Wow, now who's that other dog, because he certainly doesn't look anything like this cute and adorable pup.

Why, I look 5 years younger and oh-so-huggable.

Not to say that the other shaggapoopoo wasn't cute in his own, really quirky, kinda bedraggled, way.

And the 'rents are quite happy with my new look as well. I'm getting lots more hugs and kisses now ;-)

But speaking of BEFORE ... Alpha owes you some backdated photos.

Get cracking Alpha. And remember, I had long hair back then ;-)

Shaggy goes for a walk

Yep, I'm looking a little shaggy these days.

But at least I'm running and smiling!

Well, perhaps I'm looking a bit bedraggled now.

That must be because it's getting rather hot out.

But I'm not gonna complain about the nice weather.

Hey Alpha -- how about some grooming soon, 'K?

Furry or Slurry?

Which do you prefer? When I'm all matted and furry?

Or when I'm all wet and slurry?

I just made that word up. But it's how I feel after I get out of the muddy water.

Now I'm not sayin' who's to blame, but her name begins with a 'Mom' (hee, hee)

Focus, Alpha, Focus

Woah there Alpha. You gotsta focus!

Remember who your subject is, 'K?

Of course I will admit that's a lot of dandelions.

I suppose you may have been taking a photo of those with just moi in the background.

But if so, you should post those on the Weed-a-Day blog, not here, got it?

Pretty panorama with Mom

Don't we make a nice couple?

And so pretty in this field of dandelions and butter cups near our house.

Here I am all by myself.

Practicing being a good model.

Sit, Frito, sit -- yeah, yeah, yeah.

Check out the field behind me ... just a blur of yeller.

Woah. Did someone say it's tick season?

Get me outahere!

Tulips galore

Here we are, back at that cool garden in Sindelfingen.

It appears we have hit it just right to see the tulips.

And don't we look like a postcard in this picture?

Woah, check out Mom with her flowing hair.

Looking good Mom!

There are lots of different kinds of tulips.

These look rather special, especially as they are framing moi!

Now that's a close-up

And speaking of close-ups, looks like Alpha is getting a portrait.

Alpha, is this my best side?

Or maybe this?

Oh well, we'll let the viewers decide (hee, hee).

It's Alli again!

Reaching back into the archives, this is from Alli's last visit to Germany.

We are such a cute couple, donchathink?

Oops, sorry Alli.

Looks like Alpha needs a close-up of just me.

Hope you don't mind too much.

After all, I am the star of the blog.

I do love these birches

This is a cool section.

A little birch tree forest right in the garden.

Fancy-schmancy garden

See, they even have a more formal section to the garden.

But I don't like it as much.

Too much green; not enough flowers.

Catching some rays with Mom

In addition to cool flowers, they have nice benches every so often so you can take a load off.

Here I am taking my vest off as well, and catching some rays with Mom. Ahhhhhh, relaxing.

And check out the view.

Beautiful flowers under a budding tree. Awesome.

Monday, April 18, 2011

That's a lot of flowers

Wow. Check this place out.

This garden is in our neighboring town of Sindelfingen (where they manufacture Mercedes Benz autos).

That's one heck of a lot of flowers (daffodils in this case).

And look how far they go.

What a cool place for a walk!

Spring has sprung

Hey there, fancy pants photographer ...

I'm really glad your getting this cool perspective showing all the spring flowers, but do you realize just how small I'll be in this photo?

I mean, this is Frito-a-Day, not flower-a-day.

I'll let you have this one artsy shot, but then get back to putting me as the star, 'K?

Awww, looks who's bed I'm on

Check this out.

Alli has a quilt of you-know-who on her bed in Hawaii.

That way, I'm always sleeping with her, even though I'm not able to be there.

Awwww, isn't that the best (well, maybe second best) thing.

I love you Alli. And hope you had a happy B-day yesterday.

Friday, April 15, 2011

Happy B-day Alli !

Well hi-howdy Alli.

Another big day in the neighborhood, eh?

I hope you have a grand time, and fun at the Mayjah Rayjah concert tomorrow.

That's my B-day present to you!

Happy Birthday Alli !!!

Am I a little shaggy?

Hey guys, do you think I need a haircut?

I dunno ... I'm just sayin' ...

Maybe we should make an appointment next week with the groomer, 'K?

Wednesday, April 13, 2011

Keep up people!

Hey guys, can you keep up?

I mean, come on ... there's no one around, no dogs, no bicycles, no walkers.

Can you pick up the pace a little?

Oh, never mind.

I'll come back for ya. I know you've still got some jet lag.

Tuesday, April 12, 2011

Out for a walk

Well, we can't complain about the weather in Germany. Just beautiful days right now.

With wild flowers bloomin' and me out for a walk, what could be better?

Monday, April 11, 2011

Look what Alli made me

Hey, will you look what Alli made for me! It's my very own dog-paw-print blanket.

Thank you Alli. At least *you* remembered to bring me something back from vacation. (Hee, hee)

Sunday, April 10, 2011

Who the heck are you?

So ... the parents finally decided to come home. I'm thrilled, can't you tell? LOL

Nah, I'm very happy to have them back, but I really must tell you ...

While they've been on vacation, guess what? I've been on my own vacation!

These are my digs -- pretty resort-like if you ask me! And lots and lots of walks.

I am certainly a lucky pup. I guess I'll let the 'rents take me home.

Amongst the birch

Hey, if you found this post, you're in for a treat.

This means Alpha *finally* got around to filling in the missing posts.

All the way back to March 21st. Slouch ;-)

But hey, at least you get to see this nice shot of me and Mom, right?

Nice Japanese maple

I really like these gardens. They are in our neighboring town, Sindelfingen.

Right near where my vet works.

Great place to visit in the Spring.

My size railroad

Hey check this out. It's a midget railroad.

Bigger than a model ... in fact, just about my size.

Wednesday, April 06, 2011

Runnin' through buttercups

That's a lot of buttercups for a small dog.

Not that I'm admitting to be a small dog, mind you ;-)

Tuesday, April 05, 2011

Lookin' for frogs

They call this a frog pond.

But I'm not seein' any. What gives?

Monday, April 04, 2011

Canine sundial

Can you tell what time it is?

Well come on, I'm doing my part as a sundial! LOL.

Sunday, April 03, 2011

Some tall grass

Wow. Now *that's* some tall grass.

OK, so maybe it's wheat or barley or something farm like.

Hey, I'm a dog already.

Saturday, April 02, 2011

Outstanding in my field

Awww, will you look at me.

That's right ... I'm just *out ... standing* in my field.

April Fool's Day

Hey Alpha?

Whachu doing?

Are you really taking a picture of us in the mirror?

Do you know what day it is?

That's right jester-boy!
