I got a sister!
I think it's going to be heaps of fun having a sister.
I wonder if she likes cats?
Yesterday was Labour Day and we went to a big picnic. Dad was cooking on the sausage sizzle which was totally the best place to be 'cose when the lady working with him dropped sausages on the ground I got them all. Mum said I was a Fat Butt and wouldn't need any dinner after eating so much. I must admit I was rather pleased that I had run around chasing the frisbee before I ate so much. The best thing to do after eating heaps of picnic sausages is to sleep, so I did that.
It was good to get home tho' ........ I was very tired and my bed is way more comfortable than the ground at the picnic was.

Mum says that Dad and I are as bad as each other 'cose we have both lost things lately. I lost my collar with my registration tag on it and Dad has lost his bike helmet. Mum thinks that someone must have stolen my collar at the dog park or at the beach. I can't remember, so many people pat me and say that I'm lovely, someone might have taken it. Mum had to buy me a new one.
Dad wanted to teach me how to run beside his bike but couldn't find his helmet. Mum said the garage was such a mess no wonder he couldn't find anything so Dad's been home on holiday for a whole week and I have been helping him to clean it up. He never found the helmet and I got bored the other day and ended up getting into huge trouble. I decided to go for a walk on my own and Dad had to go and find me. He was not happy! I made friends with a lady down the road and she gave me a drink of water and rang Dad and said I was at her house. When he came to get me he was really grumpy and made me go to bed all afternoon.
Fat Poo has gone to live at Grandma and Grandad's. She likes living there 'cose she gets spoilt and Mum told Grandma that she was not allowed to feed her too much 'cose when she came home last time she was too fat. She had to go in the cage when we took her to Grandma's and she hated it and cried and dribbled all the way there. What a fuss!

I met Grandma and Grandad. I think that their house is great, it's got stairs to run up and down and a really nice big sunny deck to lay on. There wasn't any yummy food though, Mum said the pantry was empty and Grandma had to go grocery shopping.
This week I made a new friend. Her name is Mrs. Chimes and I think she is just the best friend a dog could have. On Sunday Mum said she could hear the Tony Chimes ice cream van music and she would go out and buy Dad an icecream when it got to our street. Dad and I went out to help her and the lady driving the van asked Mum if I was her dog. When Mum said yes the lady said
"oh well then, he gets a free icecream. When the grownups buy an icecream the dog gets one for free!"
It was the best tasting food I had ever had. It was really cold though and Dad said it would give me brain freeze if I ate it too fast. Mum said what a great way to get people to buy icecreams because every Sunday when the van comes all the dogs hear the music and make their Mums and Dads go buy icecreams. I think it's a great idea and I think Mrs. Chimes should go to the dog park sometimes. I think she would make lots of money there!

This is Richter and he got lost when the big earthquake made the ground wobble. The lady that found him couldn't find his owners so yesterday Mum went and got him. He chattered all the way home in the car but I told him he would have to be louder than that if he wanted anyone to hear him in the birdroom.
I think the earthquake must have rattled his little head quite a bit 'cose he likes to hang upside down. I don't think he knows which way up is.
When we got to the dog park Mum said that Richter had to stay in the car. I'm pleased I'm not a budgie ...... no dog park!
A Frisbee isn't like a ball that you can pick up when you've chased it. Frisbees are flat and when they land on the ground you can't pick them up 'cose your nose is in the way. They are quite a stupid toy really and I figure they are only good to play with at the beach. Dad throws it, I don't leap in the air to catch it but instead wait for it to land on the sand, then I dig a hole under it so I can pick it up. Clever A?
Mum said that I was a 'greaser' but I'm sure visitors don't mind if I lean on them and cover them with hair. Dad says that I'm the hairiest goofuss he's ever met and when he showed Mum all my hair that he had gotten off the carpet she said there was enough to make a Chihuahua.
Well I didn't get a Chihuahua but Mum bought me a Frisbee.
This isn't a very glamorous picture of the procedure so I tried to hide my face, but I must say it was good that I didn't have to see the vet at all. Mum's friends are nurses and they took the stitches out.
Gail isn't really holding me down, she was just patting me 'cose I'm so lovely, and Christine did a wonderful job of removing the itchy little stitches until the last one when she cut herself with the scalpel. I am very sorry about that but I'm also very relieved that it wasn't me that had to squeal. I would have squealed louder! She said that was the first time she had done that in 30 years but I'm not sure that made her feel any better.

I'm bored ..... and Mum thought I'd enjoy going out in the car. I did until I realised we were going to the wool shop and not the dog park! There was an earthquake while she was in the shop and she was taking AGES so I jumped over the back seat. When she came out I was still bored but then I was in trouble as well. Sheesh!
We had to go and get bird food and Mum must have been feeling sorry for me 'cose she stopped at the little dog park and said I wasn't to run around too much. The park has moved! The gates don't shut any more and there are holes and cracks in the ground. Some of them even had sand in them and Mum said that was called liquefaction and happens in an earthquake. It didn't make much sense to me, I was just pleased to be there 'cose I really had to have a bit of 'liquid action' myself. I needed to pee!
I'm going to pray (paws folded) that there are no more earthquakes tonight 'cose I don't want the dog park to move any more. If it moves too far we might not be able to find it again!
