Mom has really been trying to work with me to get me ready for the BlogPaws conference in June. I’ve been wearing my harness a lot but what I need to work on now is getting out of the house and around people. The problem is, it hasn’t stopped raining, and even snowing, in weeks. When we have one or two days without rain, mom has outdoor chores to do and then it starts raining again. Mom says we can’t complain though. After four years of drought, we need all the rain and snow we can get.
A couple of weeks ago, mom finally decided to take me out on a day … Continue reading

Good afternoon friends and furiends! I hope you had a wonderful day yesterday with loved ones, whether or not you were celebrating Thanksgiving!
Echo, Ocean and I had a pretty quiet day since mom was gone most of the day. She gave us a great breakfast of our raw chicken and rabbit then headed out early for Minden, NV with her friend Kelly. They went to Kelly’s uncle’s house, about two hours away, for Thanksgiving dinner.
If you saw my post on Instagram, you know we had snow on Wednesday, so it was uncertain if they would actually be able to go. To get to Minden from our house you have to drive over the Kit Carson pass at 8600 feet. If there was snow on Thursday, they wouldn’t be able to go, or even want to for that matter. By Wednesday afternoon, no snow was predicted for … Continue reading
OK, well, not really a new identity, just a new ID tag. Actually, I’ve had it for a while but I forgot to tell you about it. Back when we knew we were moving and mom wanted me to start going places with her, she got me an ID tag. Only trouble is, she thought we were moving to Orange, CA, so that’s what my tag said.
Instead, mom ended up “retiring” and moving to northern California so we needed new tags. Mom likes these tags from the pet store because they are convenient and you get them on the spot, but they are limited. As you can see, CA would not fit on the new tags. Her name and phone … Continue reading
Wow, it seems like forever since I’ve written a post and been able to visit my friends. I missed you all so much and have so much to tell you!
There is still a lot for mom to do here in the new house, but the move itself is finally complete. We all came up on October 22nd with the furniture and the majority of what was getting moved. When mom was packing, she made sure she had all of our stuff! She wanted us to feel as much at home as possible, especially since she wouldn’t be here with us for 2 1/2 weeks!
Everything was loaded in a big U-Haul truck which mom drove. Echo, Ocean and I were in our carriers (mom never did have time to get me one … Continue reading
Mom has halfheartedly been looking for a new travel carrier for me for a while now. By that, I mean that if she happened to be passing a pet store, she would go in and look. So far, she hasn’t found what she wants. She wants a soft carrier on wheels since I am a pretty big girl. I weigh 11 pounds – solid as a rock – no fat here. Well, maybe a little flab since I probably don’t get enough exercise. Mom says she hopes to change the exercise thing for all of us, including her, after we move. But I digress. Back to the carrier.
We have a hard carrier that Echo will use for our trip to … Continue reading
Boy, mom is really taking this “safe while traveling” thing pretty seriously. A few days ago, she made sure my microchip information was all recorded properly and up to date. Yesterday, I got a new collar. Really, is this necessary? The collar felt weird at first too, like the harness, but I got used to it pretty quickly. It doesn’t grab me around my chest. Mom thought that maybe if I get used to the collar, the harness will be easier. Time will tell.
When she put the collar on, the confusing part was the dangly thing hanging from it that mom said was my ID tag. It’s to tell people how to contact her if I should accidentally escape. Right now, I can’t imagine that happening. If I … Continue reading
Mom says we may be doing some traveling soon and she wants me to be able to get out of the car and go for walks with her. What? What is she talking about? Car? I never ride in the car. Oh, she says we will be practicing that too. What in the world is going on?
Beginning Harness Training
The first day she put the black harness on me, I refused to move with it on. It felt so strange – like someone had a hold of me by the chest. Echo got a harness on too. Why did he get the little purple one?
The next day, mom tried the little purple one on me to see if I liked that kind better. Well, at least she got the color Continue reading
