A Busy Weekend

This weekend was really busy.  On Saturday I went to class and saw my sister Zippy.  She looks just like me, only girly.  She is a whole lot of fun and she wags her tail all the time.  She is still looking for a forever home, but her foster people love her and are tons of fun so she has lots of things to be happy and wiggly about.  After class we all went to lunch with Jelly Roll, Kinzie and Frida.  Lunch apparently means the dogs get water and then sit around watching our people eating and talking.  Not sure how much fun it really was, but my mom said it was good training for me, so I guess it was ok.  I like training.

On Sunday I went to a bike race.  My dad races cyclocross and there was a race in my favorite park near our house.  Lulu and I hung out and watched the races and greeted our friends when they came to say hello.  The first few times I went to bike races they were kind of scary, but this one was fun because now I know some of the people and it was in my park.  Here I am making sure my dad got a good warm up on his trainer - he's the legs in the white, black and orange shorts.  

There was so much to look at and smell and hear that I got really tired. When we got home Lulu and I lay down for a nice nap.

Winter Sport

Every Monday morning she says to me, "Audie, do you want to go to tracking class today?" But I think these people send me to class to eat. I can't believe it. These crazy people put gloves, flags, and treats in a huge field and they are amazed that I can find the glove along the food path they set. Duh! I'm hungry and they put food on the ground. How easy it that! I'm a dog with a nose. Well, actually, it was easy until they started turning corners, going up and down hills, spreading the food further and further apart, and sending me into the marsh. But what's a hungry little dog to do? It's pretty easy, it's fun to find the glove at the end of the track, and it makes my person happy when I find it. So, yes, I try to tell her with my eyes and a wag of my tail, "I do want to go to tracking class today."

Sweet Dreams!

My life has been real exciting lately. I have been going to school and going for walks with my person and my other dogs and riding in the car and romping all around in our yard and playing with my cats (I love my cats!!) and chewing up toys and throwing the guts all over the place, too.
Anyway, every night before we go to sleep my person tucks all of us in our special spots and kisses us. So the other night my person covered me in my blanket and kissed me and told me a cool story. She said that while I was taking my nap on the couch in the sun in the afternoon I was moving my legs all around like I was running. I guess I was dreaming about playing or something. Then my person told me that I was also wagging my tail real fast in my dream. So I was definitely playing cause I always wag my tail when I run around and play with all my friends.

When she tucked me in that night she said, "more sweet dreams, Bones" (Bones is my nickname cause it rhymes with Jhumpa Jones). And it was great cause I like happy dreams. Cause I wag my tail.
