Guess what! Mommy went to a party in Flower Mound last weekend with Daddy and Sarah and I got to go along! There were so many people there that Homestar and I barely had room to run around and chase each other, but we managed. I knocked lots of people over and it was lots of fun. Homestar had to go to bed early, but I got to stay up late (the perks of being young and beautiful!) and party with everyone else. Oh, it was so much fun.

And you know what else kind of good came out of it? Mommy's friend Becca took a picture of me! Finally! See that first picture? That's me at 12 weeks. This one on the right...that's me now at 7 months!! Aren't you all amazed? Mommy certainly is. The shelter said I would only weigh about 15 lbs. I refuse to tell you how much I weigh (a lady must keep her secrets!) but I certainly don't weigh 15 lbs! Notice anything else different? That's right, the terrible thing mommy did to me? She shaved off all my hair and now I look like a CAT. Who does that?! I simply cannot wait until it all grows back, like mommy promises it will.

Anyway, the weather keeps getting hotter and hotter and I keep getting sleepier and sleepier, so I think I'll go back to napping now. Mommy promises she'll buy a new memory card soon, hopefully I'll be up and posting any day now!!

Let me tell you this....

I want to move back to Arlington! I don't care if I have more room here and more playmates and new toys...I don't like it one bit! I miss my daddy. I miss my mommy. I miss being able to fit behind the futon. For that matter, I miss being able to sit on the futon! All these new rules!! It's terrible.

Okay, okay. I like the new apartment. I like living with mommy and Sarah. I like it when Sarah's parents come to visit. But I want daddy to come back. And mommy never has time to play anymore because she works ALL DAY EVERY DAY. Doesn't she know her schedule should revolve around me? Hmph.

I am mutiny-ing. (Is that a word? Can we pretend it is?) Until mommy takes me back to Arlington, I will not be a good dog! No I won't!

Oh no!

I hate to have disappeared on all of you but you would not BELIEVE what kind of computer-hogs my mommy and daddy have been. they never share anymore, and trust me, tonight I just told them what I thought about all of it and TADA! here I am! Mommy says I have to apologize to everyone because I also did something very bad while I was away from the computer.... I accidentally chewed up the memory card to mommy's fancy camera.........and the cord to the battery charger.... Oooh, I was in so much trouble. Mommy still gets angry about it when I've done something cute and she can't take any totally ruins the moment!!

Nevertheless, I have this handly little computer here to tell you all about my adventures in vivid detail, since you can't see them for yourselves.

Recently, mommy and I discovered the joy of dog parks. We go and play for hours and hours, and I get to chase all the other dogs and play in the swimming pool and run and run and run! And it's all free! (Mommy made me add that part...she used to take me to doggy daycare all the time, but oh she loves the dog park so much more...she can play with all the other dogs AND get to watch me at the same time!) Our favorite so far is Fort Woof, so all of you North Texas dogs should check it out!!

Mommy did a terrible thing to me the other day....I look so foolish....but you'll have to wait til next week to read about that (and hopefully see pictures...mommy made me add that part too, I don't want anyone to see me right now!)'s bed time for me and we're moving out tomorrow! I can't wait to get back in touch with all of my blogging buddies!!

Wonder where I've been?!

I have been so busy this past week! Daddy's mommy went out of town and left her doggy with mommy and daddy...and boy have I been busy keeping Buddy in line!! It's like chaos over here! I barely have time to update, I have to keep Buddy from laying on my couch and playing with my toys and bothering my mommy!!! But I've made an exception for all of you!

Buddy likes to whine. And cry. And even when everything is okay he whines and cries. I thought I was whiny but man, Buddy beats me any day! And he just plays ball alllll the time! Even I get worn out chasing Buddy around the apartment. It's too much to handle! I'm too old for this! (So what if he's three and a half years older than me...)

The other day mommy let Buddy sleep in her bed. She said he was trustworthy. Well I didn't like that one bit, so I kicked and screamed in my kennel until mommy gave up and let me roam the apartment all night long. I showed her!! But the next night, it was back to the kennel...Buddy had to join me and boy he was not happy about that...he sure let me know it, until mommy made both of us shut up because she was too tired!! (You could definitely tell!)

Well, anyway, it's time for me to go lay down and rest before Buddy and daddy start playing ball again! Maybe this time I'll catch the ball first!!!

Blogging world: Meet Buddy!!!

A little more about me!

Today I played a fun trick on mommy. I barked and barked and barked until she thought that maybe I had to go outside. I even led her over to the door! But when she grabbed the leash I started running in circles around the couch. She tried to take a video, but I stopped playing then. Aren't I sneaky? Plus, the apartment is a mess from getting ready to move, so I didn't want to be embarrassed! Humans are sooo dirty sometimes!

I found this survey at Five Happy Hounds. I thought I would share my own answers so you all know more about me! Are you ready!?!

1. Your age?
I think five months. I might be getting close to six now, though!!

2. Your age when came to live with your people?
All of 8 weeks old. Silly mommy thought she wanted an older dog but somehow wound up with me.

3. What color is the collar you’re wearing right now?
pink, duh! I have to let the world know I'm a pretty little girl. Too bad my fur covers it up completely. :(

4. Who is your favorite person other than the people you live with?
Oh boy...probably Sarah, mommy's future roommate or maybe mommy's mommy.

5. How much do you weigh?
18.2 pounds.

For now, mommy's phone charger. Don't worry, I'll move on to bigger and better things soon.

7. Do you like other Dogs?

8. Who is your best non-human friend?
Homestar Runner! He's a silly little cocker spaniel with biggg ears for chewing on! I used to be best friends with Jackson (a german and australian shepherd mix!) but I don't know what happened to him...he was the best running partner ever!!

9. Squeaky Toys or Tennis Balls?
Squeaky toys, duh!

10. Do you like to be brushed?
I've never really been brushed too much, I don't mind either way.

11. Peanut Butter or Cheese?
We don't eat cheese here so DEFINITELY peanut butter!

12. Do your people cut your toenails?
No way, mommy is scared of my toenails and daddy doesn't care.

13. Any formal education?
Well I started to go to school but mommy got a new job that wouldn't let her sign up for any new classes because of her work schedule and so we're waiting until she moves to start over again.

14. Couch potato or Energizer Bunny?
Energizer bunny! I could play for days and days and days.

15. Five nicknames your people call you.
Lucy-lou. Monster dog (I don't get it...). Luce. Damn-it-Lucy! (Another one I don't understand...) and Mamma.

16. What is your best trick?
Running in circles really fast so mommy can't put me in my kennel and is late for work!

17. Do you like kitties?
I like to chase them! But I've never seen one up close.

18. What did you have for breakfast?
a cup of puppy chow and some peanut butter.

19. Can you hunt (aka have you ever killed anything living)? If so, what?
No! Why would I do that?!

20. When & why was the last time you went to the V.E.T.?
two weeks ago to get my stitches out! as a treat i got to go play with my friends at doggy day care!!

21. Where do you sleep at night?
in my kennel. mommy says i'm not trustworthy enough to sleep wherever i want yet. i guess because every time she tries to let me sleep with her i pee in her bed.

22. Do you like to swim?
I like to stand in the swimming pool! I haven't really been around pools much because of all the rain.

23. Can you make puppies?
Not anymore. Daddy was really sad when mommy took me to the vet. He said he wanted little Lucys, but mommy looked terrified.

24. Your favorite place to visit?
Oh boy, I like to go to Flower Mound to visit Homestar or even to grandma's house so I can torture my cousins Benny and Moe.

25. Do you give kisses?
If I feel like it. Mostly only to my daddy but today I loved on mommy for a longgg time.

26. Can you potty on command?
I am learning to do this! Mommy gets so excited.

27. To Cuz or not to Cuz?
I don't even know what this means. What's a cuz?!

I don't have any new pictures because I really don't feel like posing for any now, so here's a SUPER cute picture of myself the day mommy and daddy adopted me. We went on a roadtrip to Austin an hour after I was adopted and it was the most exciting day of my life!!

A Formal Introduction

Helloooo World! I am Lucy the great, ruler of all! (By all, of course, I mean my mommy and daddy. Who else is there to rule?) Mommy says I'm a brat. I don't even know what that means!

I'm a little cairn terrier/shepherd mix but I think I'm mostly shepherd. I loooooveeee to play with big dogs, little dogs, any kind of dogs. I want/need a best friend to play with all the time but daddy says mommy has to wait until she gets a house before she can find me a friend. Every time this happens mommy mopes and won't pay me any attention. It's okay, though, because daddy always has plenty of time for me. But for now, mommy is finally realizing that if she takes me on lots of walks, I'm less rambunctious with her. I guess not everyone likes playing all day everyday.

Anyway, it's raining so I better get onto my usual routine of barking to go outside and then standing in the rain and staring at mommy or daddy like I don't know why I'm outside. Daddy doesn't mind so much but man, mommy hatesss getting wet. It's funny to watch her try to get me to do something other than stand there in the rain.
