Checking out the Ames scenery

We headed out to a local park today that Deb found while out on her walks.

We crossed a bridge that reminded TBG of Shevlin Park in Bend, Oregon. That was where Jeb used to go hiking!

I did some lite reading of the work done on the walking trails.

and met some of the area wildlife.

If you look hard, you'll see Mister Rabbit!

All said, I had a great time on our walk and met some nice folks AND wildlife. I did collapse on the floor when we got back home though. Hey, us little pups don't have a lot of stamina!!

They like me, they really like me!

Of course I'm talking about the nice people in Ames!

First, we went walking around the campus yesterday while waiting for Dr. No to finish work. Me and "The Big Guy" worked on a set of open grated metal stairs. I think I need to grow a little more, my feet almost fell through!

Today on our walk, TBG decided I needed a little practice crossing the street. Here's the sequence...

I pretty much rocked that! Surprised Deb how well I did.

As we headed back to the house, we crossed paths with a couple that were working hard. Of course, my awesome puppyness lured them away from their work and I got to spread some puppy lov'n!
Told them all about me and Canine Companions and the cool things that I'll learn as I get bigger.

Good luck in YOUR new adventure!

PJ has been TP'd

You know you live in a college town when you wake up to this!

I must have been in a kibble coma last night to not notice that they got me too!

Really kids? Really??

Payback if I find out who it was ;^) Barking can be annoying too .

Tried to go to work with Dr. No

I gave it my best shot today. Had all my gear on and was on my best behavior. Walked nice on the leash, did my fur and trimmed my eyelashes and nails before we left the house. I walked to the bus stop with Dr. No and was ready to board the bus...

But, TBG stepped in and put an end to my plan. Something about not being old enough, blah, blah, blah. Oh well, I did give it my best shot. I'll just have to wait a few more months!

Out on the town

We took a trip to a park today. Had my longest walk so far! I'm not much a fan of this gentle leader, but I am getting used to it.

It was pretty hot for a gal wearing a fur coat! I found some shade and cried "Uncle"!

Let's just say, the rest of the afternoon was like yesterday...SLEEPING!

TBG, what do you mean we'll go for another walk tomorrow??

Met a fellow CCI pup today

Got to meet "Detroit" today. No, not the Motor City, but the CCI puppy!

                                   Boy, was he a cutie!

Got to meet Detroit's buddy...Uhhh..."Buddy"
He was NOT interested in us pups at all! TBG and Dr. No liked him though.

Detroit's humans were very nice, they even got out the pool for us to play in. I did my best to show Detroit how much fun water is, but him being a lot "Golden", he was not as interested as I was!

Here we are disagreeing on lunch.

Big thanks to Detroit's puppy raisers for allowing us some puppy play time. It sure was fun!


TBG here, the little porker (FBG...Fat Bottom Girl) was fast asleep, but could still be heard over the TV! Playing is hard work.

Sorry for the delay.

Sorry for the lapse in posting. I've been kinda busy with the move!

Last weekend and Monday we spent loading all of my toys, food and gear into the trailer. Had to explain to TBG where to put everything! And why are we taking all of these eggs? Don't they have chickens in Iowa? They're certainly getting some bright white chicken LEGS! Ha ha ha ha ha ha

We played once all that was finished. The house was empty and I had LOTS of run'n room.

Before we left on Tuesday, I got to see Monna one last time for some shots, worming and an overall checkup. I weighed in at a whop'n 21.4 lbs.

TBG is pretty goofy huh!

We made it to Ames and stayed at a local motel. I hear they had great food!

Do I remind you of a certain pig in a certain horror flick?

I'm bored, give me something to chew on!

Finally made it to my new digs. I think I'm going to like it here!

I hear there's a younger CCI puppy that arrived not too far from here, maybe I'll get to go and play soon!

The Farewell Tour

TBG, Dr. No and me headed out to "the big town" of CG today to skip down Memory Lane and say farewell to all of the good times (of course it was more like 'The Hello Tour' for me, but I'm taking a bit of poetic license here to make the story line work. You'll  also see a theme in most of the pictures today. Can you guess what it is? I'll tell you at the end of the post....)

We had to go and have photo opps where the other pups have been. Here I am in front of the Hays House.

And we visited the playground too. I was fearless and ready to hit the slide on my own! However, TBG said I didn't make the height requirement yet and I had to ride in the kiddie seat with him. How humiliating!

Yep, fearless-that's me!

I had to put my own stamp on my first walk downtown, though. Here's my Marilyn Monroe impersonation!

I tried to get a quick self-portrait in while TBG and SWMBO were getting over their shock and fixing my cape! I think my smile looks just like Marilyn's, don't you?

After that episode, TBG didn't want to scandalize the town, so he carried me for a while!

That cuteness quotient is really working in my favor on this hot July day!

Farewell, Council Grove! Off into the sunset we go!

(Did you pick up the theme? Think: CHICKEN LEGS!!! Lol! Go back and look at the pics. You'll see what I mean! Oh, I am hilarious!!! Hey, TBG, bring those things back around--I'm hungry! I bet they're tastier than a Nylabone or Elk Antler! Ha Ha Ha....oh...

Met Carver's Peeps!

We went to town today so I could meet all of Carver's peeps. First we stopped at The Clothes Line to meet Baby!

Somebody need some Puppy Time?

Here's one of Carver's best friends at the hardware store!

Here's one of Carver's best buds at the grocery!

Here I am at the bank, spreading some puppy awesomeness!

and this is what I looked like the rest of the day. A girl's gotta get her beauty rest ya know!!

I'm really glad I got to meet all the folks in Council Grove that have been such great friends of CCI pups. They are top notch friends!!

Puppy Play Time!

I was told yesterday was going to be fun, but they didn't say I'd have the time of my life!! We started out Saturday morning with my breakfast. Along with the gentle leader, TBG added my work'n cape. I think it's still a little big, but I'm trying hard to grow into it.

We traveled to Kansas City and I got to hang out at Yegger's house while all the big dogs went out for a work day. Here are a few pics TBG took of the outing.

Yegger, Winslow, Kindy & Gabe

Everyone returned to Yegger's house and we all had a great afternoon playing in the grass and pools. We ran, played hard, ran some more, went for a swim, ran and played even harder.

Here's me, my older sister Pastel and Mr. Muir.

Some water action.

Here's me and De (Winslow's human)

and...what I looked like on the ride home, rest of the afternoon and most of last night!

Yeah, you can say I was wiped out!

Thanks to Yegger's humans for letting us pups have a great stress relieving afternoon. I heard there was a ton of human food too!
