Resting with Alpha

Or more accurately, resting on Alpha.

SO long as he doesn't move around, he can be pretty comfortable.

And that way Mom can get a good close-up of my young-pup hair, but my old-man eyes.

Never too young

I may be "Forever Young", but you are never too young for a nap.

Remember, little kids have the corner on the napping market.

So I am just exploiting my newfound youth.

In fact, I could be the mascot for this club.

Boy, too bad that company didn't think of that before they went belly up.

Kinda like how I'm resting with Alpha -- get it -- "belly up".

Jeez, I crack myself up.

Royal bat ears

And here are Ye Royal Bat Ears that so perfectly compliment my Noble Nose.

Let's hope I don't catch a big wind -- I may take off like Sally Fields (remember, the Flying Nun?)

How about a closer-up.  That's even better than a close-up.

Ye noble nose

The nose knows you are getting quite a close-up.

Just 'cause you're special.

Head rush

Woah -- what a head rush.

Looks like I'm on the slide just a smidgen.

But that's OK, cause I'm very tired.

So long as I don't pass out literally, I'll be fine.

It's kinda like having my own hammock.

Without all that pesky netting that my paws fall through.

Lngng bnth th lptp n th lthr

See, I'm just to tired to use vowels.

Because I'm lounging beneath the laptop on the leather.

Hey, you try making up these pithy comments ;-)

Join the club

Yep, that's the "Forever Young Club".

Alli got this for Alpha when he wasn't acting his age ;-)

Which is pretty much all the time.

And now it's a collector's item, because the company is no longer in business.

So you might have a hard time joining the club.

But don't worry, we'll let you in.

But it's BYOD -- so Bring Your Own Dog (hee, hee).

I've got flare

OK, so maybe it's just lens flare in the photo.

But I can strut my stuff too.

And apparently I can go stealthy when needed.

Can anyone find moi?

Someone's casting a long shadow

Alpha, how come you look so much taller than me?

I mean, really, really tall!

You look like those circus fellas that wear really long peg-leg thingies.

Hey, its a technical term -- cut me some slack.  

Or better yet, cut me long lengths of slacks, so we can get Alpha some new extra-long pants.

It's getting late

Well, it's a late walk tonight.

And the sun is setting in front of me.

So that means I get the golden glow of golden hour.

A photographer's best time for photos.

And guess what -- Alpha has his camera -- big surprise there!

This time with Mom

This time Mom is coming along on the walk.

She always takes good care of moi.

For example, here I am howling at some agressive dogs that want to keep sniffing my butt.

See how she picks me up to protect me.

Little does she realize it is my howling that is protecting her from those annoying doggies.

I'm a trooper

And so we march on in the heat.  

Yes, I'm a trooper.  In fact I look like a Storm Trooper with my leg out straight.

Well, thank goodness for some shade.

Don't move Alpha.  Or rather, keep moving exactly in line with moi.

I wish I were a duck.

This guy doesn't care how hot it gets.

'Tis rather sunny

Sure glad Alpha brought his sun glasses.

I think they look very "Joe Cool" on me, donchu?

You can see just how bright it is without them.

I have to walk with my eyes closed.

Happy Father's Day!

Hey look, it's a blast from the past.  2003 to be exact.

Boy am I cute.  But I digress.  This is about you, isn't it?

Happy Father's Day Alpha.

From one young pup to another.

Grassy trails

Alpha is taking me on a walk by himself.

It's always a little risky, since Mom isn't there to make sure we don't get into trouble.

But this looks like a pretty cool "trail".

As in mowed path through the field.

Good choice Alpha.  Good boy ;-)

Friday, June 15, 2012

Yikes, who's that?

Woah.  Someone's coming up on me from behind.

And they're looking rather tall.

Oh, hi Mom!

I guess I should have figured it was just you, and your shadow.

I feel safer

Well, even though I have my tick medicine, I feel safer with Mom carrying me.

Not to mention the chauffeur aspect of the whole thing.

And I like the view better from up here too.

Drive on, Mom ;-)

Tick heaven

Look where we are.  

So pretty with all the long grasses.

We decided to take a short cut since it was pretty hot out here today.

So we're marching across an unmowed field.

There is a walking path, but still ...

This has got to be tick heaven.  

Fortunately, I have my tick medicine on so I should be safe.

Dragging up the hill

Must be one of those low energy days.

I'm having a hard time just getting up the first hill on our walk.

Mom is going really slowly so as not to "drag" me up the hill.

But I'm OK.  Once I got going, and if it's not too hot, I'm good.

That's "Mr. Teddy Bear" to you

Ummm.  Not sure what's going on here Alpha.

My paws are every which way, and I don't look real secure.

But I certainly do look adorable.

Like a little teddy bear.

You're welcome ;-)

Resting with my Alpha

Enjoy it while you can.

I don't usually lie on my back and expose my belly.

But it's nice and sunny, and feels yummy on my tummy (hee, hee)

In the garden

Hi there.

I'm sitting in the newly weeded garden -- thanks Mom!

It's looking good!

And can you see?

There are even stepping stones for me, so I don't have to get my paws all dirty.

How thoughtful!

Hanging with the poppies

Check out those poppy flowers.

Man, they are quite dynamic.

But so am I.

And I have better staying power.

Those poppies will be gone in a week.

So check 'em out while you can.

Bundle 'o paws

Awwww.  Look a me.

I'm just a bundle 'o paws.

Hey!  Gimme back that blanket.

It's a little cold on the leather.

Wednesday, June 06, 2012

What are these?

What the heck are these?

Just some logs from the forests.  Stripped bare.

So I guess that makes them long, naked trees.

Never knew I had such a racey blog.

OK, my work is done here ;-)

My protector

Can you see him?

It's just me, and my large doberman shadow.

So don't mess with me, 'cause I'm protected.

It's Superdog


Out there in the field.

He's faster than a speeding bullet.

He's able to leap over really, really long grass.

It's superdog!
