Belated Boxing Day Party in Kansas City

What a great weekend!! We traveled to Kansas City last weekend and spent 2 days with all my CCI pup buddies and their humans. It was non-stop action from the moment we landed in North KC at Gabe's house. Got to play with Gabe, Leitner and Divot before we went to the CCI party. Around noon, we headed to the South side of town and to Yegger's house! All the Kansas City pups were there and we played till we dropped!

Attending the party...Myself, Pastel, Yegger, Muir, Gabe and O'Reilly. Winslow (FD), Stanton and Lady Jane also attended, but they didn't play like us youngsters ;-)

Here are a few pics of Pastel and I.

Pastel was get'n tired of posing for pics. She started yelling to "hurry up"!

Here's one of Pastel, Yegger and I

Some action video of the day!

and I heard TBG say'n this might be my "wall" pic!

Thanks to Sally & Larry for hosting us and a big thanks to Aunt Debbie for letting us stay at the Resort & Spa! Glad I got to see all of the humans. Big thanks to Aunt Lisa for taking such great pictures!

See you all again very soon. TBG says we might go to Feb graduation if the weather's not bad.

Next stop, meeting our newest pup!

More snow!

We went out and trudged through more snow...on top of the ice from a couple days ago. It was VERY slippery out there, even with four paw drive!

I gave Santa my list!

I took my list of chew toys to the man himself. I sure hope he thinks I've been good enough this year!

We stopped and worked on "up" That was quite a stretch!

Here's one for Aunt Debbie

Maybe I can be in a calendar!

Another place to work on "up"

Remind you of a cartoon character??!

I think I look pretty nice with this pack.

No rest for the weary.

TBG and Dr. No went out today and they took me with them. First we went to the eyeglass office so Deb could pick up her new glasses. While there I thought I'd look into some for myself.

I'll try that one and that one please.

I'd like to check out please!

Next we headed to the Hy-Vee for some much needed chow. We worked on my heels, sides, auto sits and being awesome! I met a few new people and helped spread the assistance dog words. I sure wish I could have spent more time talking to my new friend at the checkout counter...maybe next time!

Party Time!

Dr. No and I went to a party last night. Girl, did we have fun!! I got to show off and talk all about Canine Companions. Of course everyone wanted in on the "lap" command, so I happily obliged.

Notice the twinkle in my eye :-)

A potential future puppy raiser...maybe???

I also got to meet the Cat of the house. I think we hit it off pretty well.

Thanks to Carla for inviting us into her home. It was a great party!!

PJ out.

Turkey Weekend 2013

I have a lot to be thankful for this weekend! My friends drove all the way from Kansas City, MO to share some time with me. We had fun, practiced commands, played in the snow, and generally just worked hard and played hard. Here are some of our adventures!

Catch me if you can! We ran and ran and ran...
Sometimes we carried our outdoor play indoors. That got us into trouble. But, we just giggled behind our paws when we got yelled at and then went back to it!
Then we heard from Aunts Debbie and Linder that it was time to head to the mall. At first we thought we were going to use the bus stop like Dr. No...
We even thought Gabe could drive us there...
But of course, TBG was on old stick-in-the-mud and said we couldn't take the bus until we got the whole jump-up-in-the-back-of-the-SUV-thing down cold. Yea, we still need a little help with that. We are still just puppies you know!
So off we went to the mall. There were a lot of little ones there, as you might imagine.
And even pretty newly minted ones!
But big people liked us too!
While I was busy gettin' in some lovin' Gabe was busy taking advantage of the Black Friday deals!
However, those humans of ours kept getting distracted. Here they thought we could be live models in the window. I know! Can you believe what they make us do!

Then Aunt Linder and TBG got together and TBG was talkin' smack about my "heels" and "sides." Aunt Linder wanted to see what was up. Yea, TBG walked right into that one! I executed my commands perfectly with Aunt Linder, thank you very much. It was so fun to see Aunt Linder just shake her head at TBG!

All that hard work is tiring, so I thought I'd show up TBG and demonstrated a perfect under so I could get a few minutes of rest.
I was pretty excited when I heard the humans talking about going to see Santa Claus. It wasn't until we got home that I realized they actually said we were going to BE Santa Claus! Gee whiz!

Do you like me better as Rudolph or Mrs. Claus?
Like I said, I am very thankful this turkey weekend for my good friends: Leitner Dale, Divot, Gabey-baby, Auntie Debbie and Auntie Linder. I'm also thankful for my comfy bed--I'm exhausted!

Spreading my Holiday Cheer

We went to the Mall today to see Santa's arrival (among other things). Boy, there were a LOT of kids! I thought my head was going to fall off from being on a swivel.

Here I am waiting on the Big Guy to arrive.

Once he arrived, I helped spread his Holiday Cheer!

We then went over to the jewelry store.

TBG and Deb got hungry, so I had to be quiet and calm.

Here I am working with a very nice couple at the shoe store. I think they liked me!! While I was working I think Deb bought some new shoes...again.

We left the Mall and stopped in at Chocolaterie Stam to see my good friend Ken and listen to him play.

Deb got a cup of REAL hot chocolate!

Ken & I

Hey do pups in training get tips for being so lovable??

and to top it off...Ken plays a song just for Moi

Snow Day

TBG and I spent the day playing in the snow! Running, sliding, flipping, eating, name it, we did it!

Snow is not only tasty, but it's fun too!!
