More Christmas Fun!

Hi friends! So yesterday I showed you my new most favoritest toy ever the super squeak mat. Today I want to tell you about my most favorites foster sister ever Bella. She lived with us a for a few months this past spring and boy did Bella and I have fun together. We played and played with each other. Well, Bella went to her forever home right before we went to Myrtle Beach, SC for the first time. I was sad for her to go, but happy to have mommy and daddy back all to myself. The good news is that Bella went from being my foster sister to my cousin. That's right mommy's aunt and cousin are Bella's forever home. The best part is we still get to see each other and play.

Now it has been since the spring since I saw Bella, but guess what? I got to see her on Christmas day. Mommy, daddy, and I went to Aunt Kathi's house and Bella was there with my other doggie cousin Duke. We had so much fun playing and chasing and eating and running.

Here's Bella:

And Duke

Hey, who is that handsome guy?

Me and Duke playing. Don't worry we were having lots of fun!

For some reason Bella likes to try to hump me. Doesn't she know I am not that kind of guy.

Tug of War! Duke, stop sniffing my butt.

A Very Doug Christmas

Hi Friends! I hope that you all had a great Christmas. I sure did. I got some new toys and some yummy treats. Here is a my new most favoritest toy ever.

Wonder what is in here?

A little help mom!

Wow, it is a super squeak mat with 16 squeakers!

Now I just need to figure out how to use all 16 squeakers at the same time.

A Bad Time!

Hi Friends! Merry Christmas Eve! I have something terrible to tell you about. Last night daddy did something so horrible I don't even know if I can say it.

That's right friends, he cut my nails. I thought this was the season of good tidings and joy. No, really it is the season of cut your nails Doug because that does not make you happy. Of course, I screamed like I was being tortured because I was. Mean daddy for cutting them and mean mommy for not saving me.

This is the face I gave mommy and she still resisted.

I am going to pull the bows off their Christmas presents, eat one of daddy's Phillies hats, and possible eat another pair of mommy's underwear in retaliation.

A Package for Doug

Hi Friends! Hey, guess what I got yesterday in the mail? A present just for me! Usually our mail man just brings me a treat if I am being a good boy, but today he brought me a whole package. He must know I have been a really good boy lately.

Maybe the box is edible.....

Hmmmmm, I wonder what is in here.

Oh wow! A bag of something smelling delicious! Hurry up and take the picture mom!

Hey, thanks Foley, Casey, Marcie, and Noble!

Mom, what's you got there?

I am waiting......

Hey thanks again Foley, Casey, Marcie, and Noble! You guys make awesome treats. What's that? Oh, mommy says that your mommy made them. Well, thanks to her for the yummy treats and thanks to you all for sharing with me.

Hi Friends! Guess what happened this weekend? It snowed! This is what it looked like Saturday night in my backyard.

I got to go outside and play in the snow with my daddy and helped shovel. And by helped shovel, I mean that I ran up and down the block looking for someone to play with. I really like the snow, but it is a little high for me. It comes up to my belly and makes me get cold. Mommy only lets me stay out for a little bit of time because she doesn't want me to get frost bite on my pee-pee. Thanks mom, that would be a really bad time.

Here are some pictures of me in the snow:

Examining my kingdom

Making my mark, hehe

Checking for yellow snow.

Snow is serious stuff

Getting ready for a snow ball fight

Hope that if you got snow, you had fun playing in it too!

Happy Hanukkah

Hi friends! Sorry mommy stole my blog for a minute. She feels badly for not spending all of her time with me. I forgive her, as long as there are some treats coming my way.

Anyway, I wanted to wish all of my friends a very Happy Hanukkah. Seeing how I am a Catholic Vizsla, I had to turn to some of daddy's friends for help dressing the part. So, Mazel Tov!


Hi Doug's Friends! This is his mommy, Erin. I wanted to apologize for Doug not being around much, not making posts, and not following other blogs. I have been really busy with work and much to Doug's dismay, he has still not figured out how to escape his crate.

I just wanted to wish everyone a very happy holidays. Working for a social service agency, I have been busy sorting, wrapping, and delivering toys for some of my clients who would not be able to have a large Christmas this year. It is a really humbling experience.

Anywho, Doug should be back with his normal blogging next week once my schedule slows down a little bit. Have a very happy and safe holiday season!

Douglas the Contractor

Hi Friends! I hope that you all had a nice weekend. This weekend was very cold here, so I did not get to do a whole lot outside. Saturday mommy and daddy did take me to the flea market. Fortunately, I did not get any fleas there, but I did get to be petted by lost of new friends. It was really cold and I started to shiver, so we did not get to stay very long. Now mommy wants to buy me jacket. I am not to sure about that, but hey, anything for me makes me happy.

Anyway, Sunday mommy and daddy bought a bookshelf for the living room. When they brought it home it was in lots of boxes. They said they had to put it together. Of course, I wanted to help. After all, I am Douglas the Vizsla and we Vizslas are known for our carpentry skills. Oh wait, I think that we are known for our hunting skills or running around like crazy dog skills, but I will be known for my awesome carpentry skills.

Here is me pretending not to be interested in the assembly.

Here is me showing mommy where the shelf goes.

And here is where I went after I tried to steal the directions and then jumped on one of the boxes.

The nerve of them. I bet Bob Villa was never treated like that. Anyway, if anyone needs an expert Carpenter Vizlsa, I am a phone call away.

Hi Friends! Sorry for my lack of posts lately. Mommy has been busy working and I have been busy doing my usual.

So, this morning on my normally scheduled walk, I ran into a beautiful aroma. I believe it was a mixed of dead animal and poop. Having a refined palate such as mine, I decided the best way to enjoy this lovely smell, was to do some heavy duty rolling in it. Mommy was not happy. She said I smelled bad. I would not expect someone like her to understand because she does not have the refined palate like me. She spends lots of money on "fancy" perfumes, when she could just go out back and find something even better to put on.

Anyway, mommy made me take a bath. I like baths, but I do not like having my yummy smell washed off of me. I worked really hard rolling to get just the right amount of smell on me to enjoy all day. After I got my bath, mean mommy put me in my crate for the day. She didn't even use the hair blower thingy. As you can see, I was not too happy with her.

If anyone knows how to open a crate, could you come bust me out? How could you resist this face?

My Favoritest Toy Ever!

Hi Friends! Guess what daddy pulled out last night? My most favoritest toy ever, the laser pointer. I can chase that thing for hours. Daddy keeps it in the drawer, but as soon as I hear it open, I come running. If you don't currently have a laser pointer to run around for, I suggest you ask Santa Paws for one this year. Look how much fun it is:

Watching it on the wall.

Action shot!

Almost got it.

Oh man, it's in the closet!

Where'd it go?

So, there you go friends! Laser pointer = hours of fun (as long as your daddy's finger doesn't get tired or your mommy yells about you ripping up the carpet).
