When I went to the lake…

When I went to the lake I took a lot of walks, and I went to the store, and I saw the lake.  I stayed in a cabin.  I think it was very comfortable.

I know how to be at home wherever I go.  Do you?

When I am tired, I know how to rest.  Do you?

Some days, I worked so hard I was exhausted!  This is a picture of me, after working very hard.

Some of my jobs are:

1)  being friendly,

2)  sniffing everything to make sure it is safe,

3) being friendly,

4) making sure Mom and Dad aren’t bored by doing something funny,

5) being friendly,

6) misbehaving so Mom and Dad have something to do.

The Best Dog Died

….and I am sure that my friend Cub is in Dog Heaven.

I am sure that Cub is in the place where there are no fences

and running and playing and chasing balls

Cub is playing with other dogs and people

And no matter how far Cub runs

she will always find her way home

and the gate is open for her

I wish I had a friend like this

golden-retriever-and-cat-friends.jpgMom showed me this picture the other day.  I met this nice dog once, when she was a puppy.  She has a friend, as you can see.  I’m not jealous of her (dogs aren’t jealous, as Rowan so clearly knows), but sometimes I wish I had a friend like this, that I could cuddle with.

 It’s cold here.  I like the cold, and especially like rolling around in the snow.  Mom and dad don’t like the cold so much.  So, we don’t do as many fun things together in the winter.  Also, Mom has to work more in the winter.  That’s when it would be good to have a friend.

 In the summer we go on vacation together, and I catch the ball in the yard, and we eat outside by the lake sometimes! 

In the meantime, I try to be the best friend I can to mom and dad.  I know that’s my job, and that’s part of what God created me to do.

Also, does anyone here know:  why do most churches not let dogs come to church?  I think we could teach a lot.

Rowan tagged me!

scout-smiling.jpgHere goes:

 Rowan, who is my best dog friend,  tagged me.

– Link to the person that tagged you. (done)
– Post the rules on your blog. (done)
– Share six non-important things/habits/quirks about yourself. (done)
– Tag six people and at the end of your post, link to their blogs. (done)
– Let each person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

1. I like to roll around in the snow.  My guardians sometimes call it “writhing”, which doesn’t sound very nice, does it?  I like the way the cold snow and ice feels on my fur.

2. Most of the time, I don’t understand why Mom and Dad get so bummed when I get sick.  As soon as I’m done, I feel better.

3. I scratch myself a lot.  I think just for something to do.

4. I think I am really pretty, and am pretty sure that everybody likes me.

5. I really like it when I get to go on vacation with Mom and Dad.  But, I like it when I get to stay and play with other dogs, too.  Don’t tell them.  I want them to feel guilty.

6.  I like to chew things.  Mostly, I like my toys, like my new cactus squeaky toy from Wherever Diane Went, but I also have been known to chew:  pens, money, cardboard, books (really, only one or two) and a sandal — once.  Really, I’m just curious.  What’s a dog to do?

I tag Zorra’s Amie, Wyrdbyrd‘s Isabel, MollyHotCup‘s MochaJavaPuppy and humans… if there are any humans who haven’t done this, please feel free!

Rowan blessed ME!

godblessyou.jpgOur friend Paul blessed Rowan, and Rowan blessed me!  I am so lucky to have good friends.  I’ll try to tell you a little bit about the blessing, but I’m not sure I know how to “link” yet.

Here is some information about the blessing:

The idea… it’s a game of tag with a difference, rather than looking inwardly, we look outside ourselves and bless, praise and pray for one blog friend. By participating in this endeavour we not only make the recipient of the blessing
feel valued and appreciated, but we are having some fun too. We’re going to see how far the bloggin’ blessings can travel around the world and how many people can be blessed! Recipients of a bloggin’ blessing may upload the above image to their sidebar if they choose to. If you recieve a bloggin’ blessin’ please leave a comment on this thread here so that we can rejoice in just how many blessings have been sent around the world!

Now I bless and pray for Grendel, Cub and Amie over at her mom Zorra’s blog.  (and I promise to get a picture of the blessing as soon as I can figure it out!)

I think it’s great that dogs can get blessed too!  And be a blessing.  Although I think we’ve been doing that for a long time.
