Mojo working on a "toothpick"

Dad mentioned to me the other day that he wasn't being very good about posting things to his blog, which got me thinking about MY blog - oops, it has been some time since I've shared anything going on with Wallace and I.

Today dad went out to do some yard work before it starts to rain (they keep telling me it's going to rain - I'm just glad it cooled off!), so I thought I'd go out and help him out.

Turns out everything he was doing required a thumb! I've tried, but I just can't hold on to things as well as he can. So I just helped by keeping him company. He was nice enough to stop every so often and too a stick for me. What a guy.

So I asked him to stop and take a picture of me so that I can post it to my blog! So here you are!

Into the Bar

Wallace here. That was different and fun. Mom & Dad were walking us this evening and we went by this bar. The two bouncers out front were very excited to see us. One wanted to take us in to scare the girls inside by saying that we were wolves.

Well, mom went in with ME and the bouncer. It sure was loud in there - all sorts of loud music playing. That bouncer guy was right - those girls were scared to see such a big furry kid in the bar!! They all screamed and got me really excited.

Mojo was outside wondering what was going on. He kept trying to look into the bar to be sure I was OK. He seemed really worried about me.

When I came out we were both so excited that we jumped up in the air at each other!

This jumping up stuff seemed pretty fun -- so when we met some more people soon after the bar I decided I should jump up again! Well, dad wasn't too happy about that......

but it was fun...!   =)

April 14, 2008 - 8:05 PM

What's this date and time you ask? This is when we came upon our first rattlesnake of the year.

Folks look at dad funny when he is walking me and Mojo around the neighborhood after dark - carrying a flashlight in one hand, and our leash and a pair of snake tongs in the other hand. But there is a reason for this - dad knows.

He knows that when it gets hot like it has been the last few days, and when summer is almost here - he knows that is prime snake season. Add to that mom having a "bad feeling" about snakes today, and sure enough...

Dad got through walking Mojo, then took me on a walk. We were back in the fenced area around the house and dad let me off the leash. One minute later, and about 40 feet from the house, I walked by it - luckily dad was right behind me with the flashlight and the tongs. He yelled for me to "leave it!" - which I certainly did! As soon as I heard that noise I have learned about in rattlesnake avoidance training I was off for the house.

Luckily dad also carries his cell phone on walks, he was able to call mom who came out and brought him the shovel. That took care of that.

Over 3 feet long - thick sucker. 8 buttons on the rattle.

It might be a long careful out there fur-buddies!

Been a Long Time

I know it has been a long time since I have done any blogging - things are still a little weird around the house, but much better.

Mom & Dad have taken the path that they are just going to keep us separated for now. They have let us play a little outside, and that went pretty well. But the house is sooooo small that Wallace still gets uppity. Mom is really hoping that once we move to a bigger place and we have more room that things will fall into place.

The up side to this situation? Dad (and mom usually too) takes us for a walk every day! It's nice when mom is up to it, because then we can all walk together. We walk all sorts of places. Around the ranch of course, and up where those new houses are - a few dogs up there too - and they take us shopping and for walks, Ralph's, Fresh & Easy, CVS - all over the place.

It's a lot of fun at the stores because people have very interesting reactions to seeing us!  =)   The little kids are great. Some are scared because we are bigger than they are. Mom has me lay down for the little ones, and that helps a lot. I like to see them smile. And lots of people take our picture too.

So for now we are just rolling along. We have both been having tummy trouble too, and I can tell you, I am really getting tired of brown rice and boiled chicken for dinner. Well, the chicken is good!

Mojo fighting cabin feaver - too much energy

So Wallace and I aren't getting along so well right now. There has been SO MUCH going on that everything is a little crazy right now. I also think that he thinks he should be in charge. But I was here first, I'm King. Aren't I?

Well, this all isn't making mom & dad too happy with us. So we have been separated for a few days. Which really sucks because I love my broth and want to run and play with him.

This also means we are spending more time in the house not running and playing - so we both have a lot of extra energy to burn! Mom & dad are planning on taking us for lots of long walks, but it has been raining a LOT and we couldn't go. But this morning it stopped and dad took me out to toss a stick - he's funny and calls it a toothpick because Wallace and I like to lay and chew on it.

Well, I was running circles around dad trying to burn off some energy and he started tossing the stick and he must have thought I was really, really cute because he took the video below of me. I'm a star! Aren't I cute??

Things change

It has been a rough month around here. First those big fires with all that smoke forced us to leave our house for 11 days. At lease we got to stay with Grandma and Grandpa, so that sure helped! Then we we came back home everything smelled different, and so many if the trees and plants we gone that everything sounded different and we could see lots of things we couldn't see before. See more here.

And Wallace has been acting differently. I hope he is OK. He has been picking fights with me and I really don't like it. I can see that mom and dad don't either. I heard them talk about taking him to the doctor today. I hope they can find out what is going on.

But the biggest change of the month will be happening today. Mom and Dad will be taking Loozie to cross the Rainbow Bridge. It will be strange around here without her. She has been here my entire life. She my older sister. I know she hasn't been feeling that well for a long time, but this last week she hasn't been having any fun at all, poor girl. I hope she enjoys her new life on the other side of the bridge. I know we sure will be missing here over here.

mobile posting - orientation day

Wallace here - I'm the big dog today! I've hijacked Mojo's blog!

Mom & Dad brought me here to the training field and left Mojo at
home. I am having a good time hanging out with Dad and seeing all the
people here...but there is only one other dog here, so I am not really
sure why we are here...

Don't get me wrong. I loved getting a ride in the truck and the field
is always a ton of fun (well, it's more fun when Hurley is here!!).
Guess I will have to wait and see what happens. I must be here for
some reason!

Good thing Dad got me some water and there is shade here - it got
really hot today! This morning was great - nice and cool for a change.

If I can get back on Mojo's blog later I'll let you know what happens today.
