I bark for Ice-cream

Now that the weather is getting nicer, (nails crossed) Mom and I are starting walking. I LOVE to go on walks and read all the Pee mail. Today she took me to the park and there just happens to be a ice cream place there called the Dairy Ripple, sometimes called the Dairy nipple!! BOL.
Sooo...On April 29th I got to have my very first Ice-cream. It was so soft servish and I loved it.
Hey! Can we go back tomorrow too??

This was the day.....

For our first lawn mowing of the season. I mean the lawn was about 87 in tall. I honestly felt like I was living in a jungle.
It's all cut short now and it is so soft already. I can't wait to do some rolling on it tomorrow.
Although while dad was mowing they found lots of corn husks, corn stalks and corn cobs. They think it may have come com the corn fields when we had the tornados. Apparently farmers in Wisconsin are finding stuffs in their fields from Illinois.

Rainy friday

Addi is here for a few days. Friday it was cold and rainy. Since Addi is going to be a cheerleader for the soccer team, this morning she showed us her cheer outfit. Even I had to admit....that she looks gorgeous!! Bertie's mouth is gonna drop WIDE open. Wanna see her? (Look at who is in her paw necklace, you may have to bigify the picture)
Then this is what Miss Addi did for the rest of the day!! (she always sleeps with that ole tongue just hangin..out)
Sure hope that this weekend will be much nicer and warmer...Still waiting for Spring to get here. I am thinking that maybe it missed the memo!! Ha! Have a great weekend!

What am I looking at you may ask?
I have never seen these guys before but they are trimming the limbs of trees hanging over the wires. One guy cuts em.....

And speaking of watching. We are all watching Sully have a great birthday!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY to our friend Sully!!!

We take the podium

Yesterday we had the marathon and it was so much fun. Addi and I loved it and she had Bertie there to cheer her on. Course I walked along with Hazel and her sister and brother. CONGRATS to the winners. Addi and I were both Proud to stand on the podium for our accomplishment of finishing the race.
We want to give a big round of THANKS to the doods and especially their mom for all her hard work and keeping us mile posters in line!!
P.S. I sure hope none of those guys got in trouble with their girls for stopping to look at the beach girl bol

Mile 21, 22, 23 and 24 of the Mayoral Marathon

(for the beginning of the race, click here)
Mile 21 
is heading out onto the country roads.  (you may have to bigify the pictures to read them)
One wrong turn can really mess you up...I'm just sayin...
Hey, Where are we at??  I don't know but it looks like a cool track. This could be fun to run on.
WAIT!! Call me crazy seems like we have been round here already.....something isn't making any sense!! WOW!! These guys mean business....where did they come from?
They are literally on our tails......don't know about you but I don't want to get bit in the butt!!
 I think we better split and like ASAP!! Jump...Run...Fly... just do what you gotta do!!
Mile 22
Mile 22 is taking us down by the beach. I must be in the lead so I am just gonna keep on keeping on!!
Oh...I see...where all the guys are now.....BOL....They don't even realize it yet but they are giving us girls time to get ahead of them, BOYS!!! They just cant run past a pretty girl!!
HA!! HA!! They see the dad and suddenly they are all scaredy cats and getting outta there!! This cracked us girls up!!
This is our plan to deal with this humongous DAD!!
And .....believe me...that's exactly what us guys did!!
Guys: Hey girls wait up for us!!
Girls: Not a chance!!
Mile 23: 
Is taking us around the countryside.....well I should say...up and down and criss-cross the country side. This is a place where the race will be won or lost. We all gotta make our moves pretty quick. As you can see everyone is truckin right along.
After the back and forth roads, this mile is ending with the hugest and smoothest run downhill but MAN!! what a killer going up that last hill was. Sarge, Casey, Misaki, and I (Ranger) made it up alright but our tongues were hanging out of our mouths. *where's the water? pant, pant....* I mean we were dying but look at ole Sarge. Didn't phase him in the least......what  guy. He just jogged up like no big deal. We all have a new appreciation for Sarge now.
Mile 24
Aw....Finally back on flat road again. Little Oreo's legs were getting tired so I told him to hop on and I will carry him.
Hey LOOK!! Bertie caught up with us and is cheering for me...Aww...!! I was so glad to see him and how cool was it that he came to cheer me on in the last miles of the race. He's so thoughtful like that. That's my guy!! He's wonderful!!
Oreo: Addi...stop being all girlie and lets get moving. Bertie will be there at the end for you...lets go!!

As we head for Mile was so nice to have other doggies with their signs cheering us on. This guy was definitely barkin for us all....
On to Mile 25 and the rest of the race.........................

I've got a frog on my backporch.

Say Hi! to Mr Froggy.
He just arrived yesterday and he is living right on my back porch. He doesn't do much but just "Hang" around. He even has his very own lily pad and his own pond!! Least he's ready for all the rain that we are having!!

My Easter weekend

My Easter weekend was very busy. Kyla and Kaleb were here Wed-Sun, and other kids came and went for different days. It was kinda cool for me though...cuz they we had kids sleeping all over the place so I made the rounds and slept with all of them!! Hey! I'm a equal opportunity sleeper!! Ha! Once they were done playing keep away from me....they colored eggs and they did lots of other fun stuffs. Mom kept them pretty busy that they were asking to go to bed at night!! bol
Kyla made all the bunnies for the dinner table for Easter.
Everyone came over for dinner and lots of good food. My mom is all about color especially with food, so she made Easter egg pound cake. Cool huh?
There was a BIG Easter egg hunt for the kids but sadly no pictures, so you'll hafta imagine all these kids runnin... grabbin....and yellin...and all excited about their candy and toys etc. Addi and I each got a chewy bone.
Here is my official "bunny ears" picture. I'm not a fan of this but.....there are treats afterwards so I guess I can go along. Hope you all had a great Easter.

Playing keep away

I'm not really a playing games kind of guy. Although you give me a ball and I'm all over it. I have popped Balloons,  beach balls and soft bouncy balls.  Kyla and Kaleb are here for a few days while on spring break. They thought that they would play keep away with me. It sounded great to me until I found out what it was all about:

Seriously!!!! This is not what I had in mind.
Kids nowadays!!! Don't they have an I-pod to play on??? Ha!
