My Week in Review

So what’s been a’happenin’ besides the usual walks and long naps?

Car Adventure: Mom and I took the new(ish) car in for its one-year checkup. I suppose they took its temp and looked in its ears, and all. At least that’s what they do to me! So while we were waiting, we walked to a nearby wetlands, which was pretty boring–Mom made me stay on leash. 😦Wetland ducksWe saw lots of ducks (see those behind me? There were a whole lot more further along), but not much more than that.DucksThen a short wait for the car–imagine–they have a room just for that! And cookies too. Mmmmmm20140122_135909The car didn’t have any sickies, so we were on our way home in just a short while.

Cormorants: We went to the river the other day and saw these strange birds called cormorants. We usually see them out on the coast–maybe they were doing some sightseeing…CormorantsI watched them dive into the river and they didn’t come up and they didn’t come up and they didn’t come up. Pshew–they sure can hold their breath a long time!

CormorantsI thought I’d better go out and rescue them. I didn’t want any drowned birds on my paws.A tunnel to the birds

I was trying to be helpful, you know.

Climactic Armageddon and the Tanning Salon: Dad decided to go to a tanning salon and Mom’s been taking him every day. He said he needs to go 44 times so he can have the bestest tan ever! I think he’s just getting ready for the Climactic Armageddon we’re suppose to have this coming weekend, although he said he still had to work on his tan until the end of the month. I have a very important duty while they are gone–to guard the house and keep the kitties in line. Don’t tell them, but I catch up on my zzzzzzz’s and think about the Armageddon.

Mom? Was that one or two snowflakes that’s supposed to fall in Portland this weekend?

I wonder if the Popstar, who is coming for the big event, and I can make a snowball? I practice all the time at ‘catch’!!

I sure hope these little snowdrops survive.
