I got attacked!

That's right, attacked!

It was super windy outside yesterday (and today) and Mama and me were outside doing a potty break. Apparently there was a cat about, but I didn't see it. Mama saw it, but he went away and she didn't see where it went to.

So there I was, innocently poking around a bush, and I went to claim it as mine......and then WHACK! This cat exploded from the bushes and attacked my undercarriage! No worries, nothing's hurt but my pride, but gee whiz I wish I didn't have that stupid leash on. That cat would have paid!

Then later on that night on another potty walk, I saw what looked like a white bunny hopping around the grass. Of course I went to immediate "I'm gonna kill you" mode. Bunny hopped away out of my sight, so I went back to what I was doing. Out of sight, out of mind ya know. Anywoo......I was in full on squat doing my business when it came back! I was doing the potty shuffle chasing after that bunny....and I couldn't figure out what was making my Mama laugh like she was going to fall down. I didn't catch the bunny. Later on I heard Mama tell Daddy that I was chasing a plastic bag. Hmph! In my defense, it was moved....and it very well could have been a bunny.

Speaking of Daddy, he's gone right now. He had to go some place called "New York" again for work. He's gonna be gone until Friday. He did this a few weeks ago too. I don't like it when he goes away, but at least I got my Mama. I like her better anyways!

Mama says if it ever stops raining that I can go to the dog park. I'm not gonna hold my breath.

The Eating Bunnies day....

Woo! I hope all you guys had a great Eating Bunnies day (sometimes humans get it right with these holidays)! I didn't get no chocolate, and I didn't get no ham either! Not fair! I reallllllly wanted some ham, but Mama said it's too salty and this ham had something called honey and brown sugar on it too, and apparently I couldn't even have any of that! Would you believe there wasn't even a bunny to be found? Not a real one anyways, just a big chocolate one that Mama got for Daddy and of course I wasn't allowed anywhere near him. Humans are so stupid! Why have a holiday called Eating Bunnies day and then not eat any fluffy hoppity bunnies?

Mama and Daddy ate their foods at that table thingy, and they never ever do that! I had to watch. I put my face right on that table thing next to Daddy, and the next thing you know Mama's pointing to a corner and telling me to go! Can you believe it? They weren't eating on the couch like they always do. I thought there were different rules with this table thing. I thought that maybe Mama was going to quit being stupid and give me some of that yummy ham while I was in the other room, so I happily trotted off to await the bounty. I STILL didn't get no ham, and it smelled sooooo good too. She tricked me!

I'm going to have to put up more of a protest on next year's Eating Bunnies day.

On a side note, I got to go to the dog park yesterday again! Besides me, there were 5 labs and an adorable (according to Mama) terrier mix named Flip. And guess what? One of the labs was a real life seeing eye dog! His human wasn't completely blind, he could see me and him and Mama had a real good conversation about me and how gorgeous (duh) I am. I had lots of fun romping and chasing that dog, but he was all business once he got his harness back on. He didn't even look at me when I wooed at him as he was walking away.

There was a human man there who was eating a candy bar, and even though I stood right in front of him and stared and stared....he didn't share! Mama was shocked, cuz I don't usually beg like that with her and Daddy. The man just kept turning and walking away from me (rude rude rude) so I had to keep following him and staring. His dog must get lots of foods, cuz she looked like a sofa cushion (Lab). She had big fat rolls coming out from under her harness. She was really lazy too, I thought maybe she was an old dog. Turns out she is only 6! I don't know why the man would want to feed her stuff and then ignore me when I was staring at him so intently. I even wagged my tail and kept all 4 feet on the ground. I didn't even woo for his attention! He should have appreciated my polite begging and given me just a taste!

Speaking of yummy foods, Mama brought some of my liver treats to the park to give me for when she calls me and I actually come to her. Usually I stay away from Mama in the park cuz I never know when she's going to hook the leash up and take me home. If I want some attention I'll just go up to the other peoples. Unfortunatly all the other dogs could smell the treats in her pocket. She managed to give me a few, but she ended up just handing them out to all the other dogs (she asked their peoples first). She did insist that they sit nicely for them though. She also says that's the last time she brings yummy things to the park, although she did enjoy handing them out.

Anywoo, I'm still tired from the park, so I'm going back to my "coma."

Holly told me that I hadn't posted since Febroooary, and I gotta admit I didn't think it had been THAT long! Sure enough, I look and Febroooary 28th was the last time I blogged. So sorry about that.
Mama made me go back to Michigan with her for the last time (so she says, been saying that) and finish up stuff at the house. I guess Daddy's friend's son is going to be living in our old house for a while, and Mama had to throw a bunch of stuff in the attic to get it out of the way so he could move in.

I've been goin to the dog park once or twice a week and having a blast. Mama's tryin to ruin my fun now, because I recently discovered how much fun it is to hump other dogs....not every dog.....I just choose one dog and focus on him. Mama ends up shadowing this other dog so she can stop me. Usually I know if she makes that "ah ah" sound that means she knows what I'm thinkin and I better stop thinkin it. She still has to pull me off sometimes though, and that's when she makes me go home. Something about humping being rude and if I'm gonna do it I can't stay. For some reason it's always an intact male yellow lab that's got my interest. Mama thinks it's cuz I was influenced by a yellow lab one day at the park, and now I'm fixated on them. Nah, I just like 'em cuz they're yella.

Hey guys, guess what's black and white and fluffy all over? Give up? It's the totally cute husky puppy at our apartment complex! I haven't gotten to meet him yet, just woo at him from a distance. His human always takes the puppy back inside before he can woo back at me, and I don't think that's very social of him! Mama wants to talk to the man to make sure he really knows what he's in for since us northern breeds are "special." Mama always gets scared when she sees someone with a husky pup since so many peoples aren't educated on huskies, they just know they're adorable (duh). So far Mama's had no luck with this man, but she's not giving up yet.

Speaking of puppies, my favorite puppy (other than the little husky puppy I haven't met yet) is a little 4 month old pup named Charlie. I go crazy for him! Mama doesn't know what he is, he kind of looks like a golden, but he's got speckled legs like he might have some english setter, and a cute white splotch on the top of his head. He's not very big though for a 4 month old, so he might have some cocker in him too. Anyways, he's lots of fun for me to romp with, he gets me all riled up! His humans can't keep him away from me, he just drags them on over. It kind of annoys Mama because she's still working on my "self control" and it's hard to maintain what progress she's working on when all of a sudden there's a pup jumping on my head. Charlie's human man lost his collar one day and so he just let Charlie run around outside without his leash. The problem was we were outside when Charlie came bursting out the door and jumped on my face. I didn't like that very much, but I just told that rambunctious pup to learn some manners. Head jumping is not acceptable in my book!

The weather here is getting too hot for me, and Mama says we might not be able to go to the dog park as often because she says I don't drink enough water there when I'm hot. It's been 80 degrees a few times here already, and Mama doesn't like to take me to the park too much when it's over 70 because she's afraid I'll overheat. I don't drink enough water and I don't know when to stop. It got cold again the past two days though, so I'm hoping for some dog park trips this week! I can't go more than twice a week, and my trips have to be spaced 4 days apart otherwise I get sore and gimpy.

Anywoo, I just wanted to reassure everyone that I'm doing okay. I know I promised this before, but I really will try to keep this thing more updated. I just don't always have much to write about.
