Mr. N Spends the Weekend

Mr. N showed up the other day with his suitcase and leash. His Mom was with him, so I knew he hadn’t run away. I asked him “is everything OK?” He wasn’t sure. Then I heard them talk about food and clothes and a whole bunch of other boring stuff. That’s where I zoned out and decided to have a little romp around the house with him.

It was rainy that first day, so we donned our matching raincoats and headed out for a walk. Leaving your mark is important when you’re in new territory…I worked hard at keeping up with Mr. N. Somewhere, we both ran out, but that didn’t stop us!Sage & Mr. NThe kitties had another take on this situation. They remembered the last time Mr. N spent the night. He chased Mystic and she gave him a ‘correction’. Now, Mr. N has a healthy respect for my kitties and steers far away from them. Even so, Mystic spent lots of time in places far away from this little ball of fur. 😃 I think if he stayed longer, she might get to like him!

Today, Mom kept running in and out of the house–putting lights and stuff here and there. Then she dragged a tree in AND we didn’t even get to put our stamp of approval on it. What’s up with that??? Really, it was a bit boring.Under the tree

But we did our best to cope.Mr. N & Sage..sleeping

So, what is it like when another dog comes to spend a few days at your house?

WW: Shoppin’ Vignettes

 Nothing like a mani/pedi to get ready for a shoppin’ trip! A girl needs a little pampering now and then, don’tcha think?

Um,, Mom. This is nice, but there’s no treats here…

I think he likes me! >3

On to the next store and what happens???  I got a big monkey hug!  I think he likes me….

💘 😍

This dog doesn’t smell right. I think he’s stuffed…

I bow to the almighty stuffed dog in the cage--JUST DON'T PUT ME IN THERE!!

Thank goodness for that–I think there’s a treat under this cage.

At the end of the day, I wanted to give back to all the great workers in the stores we visited. So, I offered my services.

Can I help you?

May I help you?

My Thankful Day

I have a lot to be thankful for today–let me tell you why.

You know I get really hot with all that running and stuff and there’s almost always a mud puddle to cool off in.A mud bath

And most of all

IT’S MY BIRTHDAYBirthday Sage

I’m now 5-years old…Mom says it means I’m supposed to be all grown up. Frankly, I think that’s a bit over-rated.

We celebrated with a fun, fun trip to the coast with Mr. N, who gave me a Tuffy Mega Bone with not one, not two but 10 layers of indestructible material. I looooved it. And it’s still in one piece. :D Sage with new toyMore about this trip later, so stay tuned!!

 

Monday Mischief-Brrr or Burr??

It’s been cold here. Not like the rest of this country, but we got our share! Even so, we ventured out to my favorite running spot–1000 Acres! And what did I find?

Big CATA big ol’ earth mover thingee!

Walking the treads

Please, please, please Santa. I want one!

Wow, I bet that thing can dig a ginormous hole. 😉

But, then, when I looked for a hole (hoping to find some water/mud) Windy day

what did I find?Where's the mud?Hard water!! What’s up with that???

Oh, and take a look at my tailMy tailSee? It’s all pointy – not all fluffy like when I was on that ol’ earth mover thingee.

Well, as luck would have it, I ran into these…800px-BurrsAnd they aren’t easy to get out. Mom holds my fur back and I pull with my teeth. Let me tell you…she’s not allowed to pull them. No way!

And, I ended up with this.A bath
