I've decided to be a teenager.

So I've decided the moms have it too easy and I need to challenge them more. Here is my master plan:

#1 - act really cute and challenge the long standing house rule that animals do not belong on the furniture in our house. I'm pretty hard to resist. See following picture for proof. I have adopted an Ozzie pose for effect:

#2 - Mommy Claire has been acting too active and happy. I torpedoed her in the chest again yesterday to try to slow her back down. It looks like it worked, she's moving a lot slower and saying ouch again. I can't let her get fast enough to chase me.

#3 - I have decided that poop is a great toy and a tasty snack. I actually don't think it tastes all that great but it REALLY makes the moms mad, so I'm eating it - but only after I make sure they see me with it and haplessly try to catch me and steal it. Mommy Cate said something about adding something to my food, but I don't know what she's talking about.

If anyone has more ideas for me, please let me know!

More new pics

Just a quick post today, as I'm just taking a break from playing with Echo. He needs lots more exercise, so I only have a couple of minutes. Mommy Claire is taking pictures of us playing.

Here are some new pics of me in the back yard. Remember to click the pictures to see them full size!

This is me practicing my "over the shoulder" casual look.

Here I am checking on the progress of the latest hole I'm working on. It's just big enough to trap Echo's favorite ball in.

Here I am giving my new hole the width test by jumping it.

Me playing with my Jolly-Ball. It's really for horses, but it's good for us big strong dogs.

Okay, back to work making Echo run around the yard chasing me. More pictures tomorrow!

More pictures :)

Make sure you click the pictures to see me close up!

Mommy Cate asked me to pose for some pictures after a hard day's work:

Me after a pounce attack on Mommy Claire's broken ribs. I make sure to snuggle her afterwards to make the pain all better:

Busy, busy, busy!

Okay, so, I'm still alive. Just in case you were wondering. Mommy Claire might have wanted to strangle me sometimes lately, but I run pretty darn fast.

I have decided that being in the house is for the birds. When Mommy Claire gets up in the morning and lets me out, I wait for her to walk away from the door and run up and splat myself against it acting like I want to come in. When she comes to the door, I run to the FAR back of the yard and laugh. I do this about 5 times before she stops trying to open the door. She just puts water in my bowl, which I then try to shake clay into so she has to clean it and refill it. Paws work great for that part.

Today, Sabre and I stayed out all morning and just went inside for lunch. When she let us out after lunch, we refused to come in. FREEDOM TO DIG!!!! Wooo Hoooo!

The yard excavation is going well. Echo told me bones were buried out here so I'm trying to find them. I dug one hole big enough to hide in.

Mommy Claire snapped a picture of me outside after a hard morning's work excavating. The glass is really dirty because I took everyone's advice and messed it up so the ghost husky would leave me alone.

Oh, and hey Ozzie, I weigh 40 pounds!!!!! Mommy Claire said 5 of it is clay...
