I got myself in trouble...

Besides chewing on the bedding as Mommy tried to make the daybed, something else happened.

 photo steldb3_zps42d7474f.jpg

When she draped it over the ironing board (in the kitchen) to iron it, some of it landed in a "puddle of something" that shouldn't have been there.

It wasn't Gracie's and it wasn't Mommy's either...

Do you want to know what I love to eat more than watermelon??

 photo duo_zps556e11b2.jpg

No, it's not a ladybug.

It's an Asian Beetle. (Yes, there is a difference.)

Ladybugs are red and pretty. Asian Beetles are orange and ugly. They smell like nasty, dirty feet when you squish them.

But I like to find 'em and chew on 'em. When I do, Mommy gets all kinds of freaked out and almost barfs when she tries to take them out of my mouth.

((giggle)) Silly Mommy. It's protein!

It's been kind of quiet around here.

Yesterday me and Gracie were playing and she had a seizure.
I had no idea what that meant so I kept wanting to play with her.

But Daddy was quick to swoop in and scoop her up and hold her while Mommy ran and got some honey to rub on her gums.
She has something called Hypoglycemia.
Since I don't have that, I didn't get any honey rubbed on my gums. But I bet I would have liked it.

So today, me and Stanley are sticking close to her and catching a few winks here and there.

I hope she feels better tomorrow because I really want to play with her.
I miss barking at the top of my lungs an inch away from her face.
(She "loves" that.)

Happy Palm Sunday!

It was an exciting day for me!

I got to meet both my human grandmas for the first time!!

 photo palms2_zps0e2fe6a7.jpg

They've never come to visit me until today.
As you can only imagine, they were quite taken by me... and rightly so.

I mean c'mon, look at me!!

 photo palms1_zpsc79fa3f5.jpg

Anyway, our local volunteer fire department had their annual Palm Sunday ham dinner so Daddy went and grabbed some take out for everyone.

Gracie and I weren't allowed to have any. All we could do was sit and watch. Sigh.

Yesterday, Mommy lent a helping hand, (make that a helping oven) and baked 6 apple pies for the Palm Sunday dessert. She didn't make them, she just baked them. But the house smelled awesome!!

Speaking of Mommy, she had a freak accident early this morning. A big can of string beans fell from the tippy-top shelf and landed on the top of her bare foot. Ooooh that had to hurt! I'm pretty sure it did 'cause she dropped like a stone after it happened.

Then her foot swelled up like that little Violet girl did in Willy Wonka! Her foot turned (black and) blue like her too!
I hope Mommy doesn't have to go anywhere because she's never gonna get a shoe on that gigantic foot!

She is hobbling around the house like a little old lady.
Since she can't chase me, now's a good time to get away with stuff I normally couldn't get away with!!

Hmmmm... I need to find me some fabric softener sheets.

See ya!!

I'm not sure why, but...

trouble seems to be following me lately.

 photo trouble1_zps4c61b599.jpg

For example, I'll just be sitting there minding my own business when all of the sudden a fabric softener sheet will fly right into my mouth! I know, I couldn't believe it either!

So I have no choice but to run around the house trying to eat it as Mommy frantically chases me.

Another example is the 150 year old pine flooring. Again, I'm just sitting there, minding my own business when all of the sudden a chunk of the old wood filler flies right up into my mouth!! It's crazy!

 photo trouble2_zps2c6c5bc6.jpg

Ummm. It beats me how those scratch marks got in there. Probably mice.

I'm telling you, trouble is following me all over the place!!

Maybe I need to wear a striped shirt and red overalls?

Have a great weekend, everyone!

I've got something to tell you...

 photo stelbed_zpsc5b302c9.jpg

But you promise not to laugh?

 photo stebed2_zps6bab5e62.jpg

My tail doesn't cover my butt like it should.

 photo tail_zpsc32e4ed2.jpg

For some reason it hooks off to the right.

 photo tail2_zpsff8faaf9.jpg

I wonder if Kim Kardashian has this problem?

Lately I've been having sleeping "issues."

 photo stellacouch_zps65cd1064.jpg

I'm wide awake at 5am every single morning now. Since I am wide awake at 5am every single morning, I feel Mommy should be wide awake also. But she's not. So I continue to nag her until she gets up and takes me downstairs.

Since we're both up, it's only right that Mommy feeds me. That usually happens at 5:06.
I eat my big breakfast, walk over to my dog bed, curl up and go back to sleep until 7am.

Not really sure what Mommy does. But I know she doesn't walk over to her dog bed, curl up and go back to sleep.

This morning I decided to try something a little different...

I was wide awake at 3am.
But that DID NOT go over very well with Mommy. She wouldn't bring me downstairs and feed me.

So I'll try it again tomorrow morning. ((giggle))

I didn't know him, but he's my hero.

Ape died today, doing what he was trained to do.

There was a real bad guy about 40 minutes away from where we live.
Click on his photo for the story.

Umm. I have a problem.

I chew everything.
I can't control myself.

 photo 5ae4754f-6063-4ed8-8eea-21b00104f3c4_zps53a2a41f.jpg

Either I'm teething or...

 photo stelchew3_zpsed78b9e3.jpg

I need an intervention.

I wonder if Jeff VanVonderen is available?

Nope. I didn't do that.

 photo dog_paw_zpsef6e3240.gif

I have become quite bored with my pink bone.

I need something more challenging.

 photo sterug_zps4f3d6273.jpg

Time to break out Daddy's power tools.

Happy Monday!

Tastes like chicken.

I decided to "sample" the fire board.
It's behind the wood stove that keeps us toasty warm.

 photo fwall3_zpsbf400abb.jpg

It's right at eye level so I couldn't resist!
I'm pretty sure Mommy has no idea I did this.

 photo 9408ff01-84fb-4c7e-934e-512ef6ff9f88_zps754d5e08.jpg

She thinks she's slick by hanging a slate sign to cover the destruction.

What'd she just fall off the turnip truck?
That won't stop me!

But for now I must play it safe.
Stanley and I will pretend like we're sleeping to throw her off the trail.

 photo 7b176519-1338-42ea-a734-f9dae3107549_zps7d2d2ae6.jpg

For my next trick, I shall remove the welcome sign and stick a fork in that outlet.

I've been playing with Mommy.

Hope she's got more hoodies.

And Band Aids.

Have a great weekend everyone!!
Thanks for visiting me!!!

I may be stubborn...

 photo c9a28543-0f97-4a9c-af69-00df10b64c30_zps73ecc1d9.jpg

But Mommy is more stubborn.
She refused to remove the dollies in that pickle crock, so this was her solution.

Now what am I going to do to pass the time??
Oooooh! I've got an idea!!!
