I must stand guard to make sure the dishwasher is loaded properly.

Nah! I'm just waiting for Mommy to turn away so I can make my move and see if she accidentally left behind a tasty tidbit.

Although I would look pretty cute in a bright red jacket and a tall, black fuzzy hat. Who cares if I'm not British.
Red is definitely my color!!

Mommy has a boo-boo and it's all my fault.

We were playing on the couch yesterday and I thought her thumb was my Nylabone. So I clamped down on it and wouldn't let go.

I sunk my gnarly, sharp "Predator" teeth right where her thumb nail meets the skin. I heard words come out of Mommy's mouth I never heard before.

Today it is really swollen, it hurts and it's hard for her to bend it. She's grabbing stuff like a chimp.
You should have seen her peel a banana this morning. ((giggle))

She knows I didn't mean it. But I think I'm on her "$h*! List" anyway.
Hopefully she won't have to go see the doctor.

I feel so bad...

BUT NOT THAT BAD BECAUSE...

She has another thumb!

Stanley and I stopped watching the race.

What's with all the drama?! Did you see how they announced the drivers with the dramatic music and the smoke?
Even Mommy couldn't believe it and Daddy walked away from the television shaking his head.

I am disappointed too.
I don't even want to know who won. Hmpf.

So I decided it was time to torture play with Gracie.
(Yes, Mommy put that dumb cloth tape back on my ears.)

I grabbed my bone and headed for the couch.
I'm still too small to get up there without any assistance.
Assistance = Mommy

 photo stel3-1_zps161e6835.jpg

All the sudden, Gracie spooked me!

 photo stel5-1_zps2aea8260.jpg

Crap! I dropped my bone!

 photo stel9_zpsa06e1fc6.jpg

Not a problem. I'll just wait for "assistance" to pick me up and put me on the couch.
(I have her well trained.)

 photo stel4-1_zpsc4f0f62b.jpg

There! That was easy.
But where's Gracie???

 photo stel6-1_zps9dcb5a8a.jpg

I don't know where she could be, unless she doesn't want to play with me.
(sniff-sniff)

 photo stel7_zps77d9ad66.jpg

Ah-ha!! There she is!!!!
She was just pullin' my leg.
I love her even when she looks like Popeye.
A-gah-gah-gah-gah-gah-gah!

 photo stel8_zpsb305164c.jpg

I would much rather spend my Sundays playing with her and Stanley than watch those silly race cars with all that drama.

Lady and Gentleman...

Start your engines!!!!

YAY! Today is the Daytona 500! I am so excited!
I've been a NASCAR fan all of my life!!
(Even though I was born last November and I've never seen a race.)

#24 Jeff Gordon is my driver!

 photo 24_zpsbe09c09c.jpg

I am happy Miss Danica got the pole position because she's awesome!
But not as awesome as me.

I was so excited about today's race, I got Mommy up at 4:30am this morning! I haven't slept since and neither has she!
(That's a fib. I got up that early because I was wide awake! Could be because I slept ALL evening. I even slept through Killing Lincoln.)

Okay, I gotta go! The race is going to start soon and I've got to grab Stanley!

"Boogity, boogity, boogity let's go racing boys (and puppies)!!!"

I suprised Mommy and took up woodworking.

But I don't use tools.
I use my teeth.

See...

 photo woodw1_zpsa1798841.jpg

Just like my big sister Darla did when she was a puppy.
Only she was taller than me.

See...

 photo 82d9abaf-6e6e-4e13-9cc8-be3f3002e513_zpsc43f18b7.jpg

Me and Roy Underwood have a lot in common.

Hmmm... Not sure why, but I overheard Mommy mention something about getting new wood trim in the spring.

Yippee!! More fun for me!!!

This is Stanley.

 photo stanley1_zps391f249e.jpg

I love him very much.

 photo a1dbf592-722d-4783-9531-049ba6a595d7_zps4ceb0008.jpg


These are all "my" toys. None of these are Gracie's.
Mommy says otherwise.
What does she know!


 photo 8a78095d-ac0e-40f6-8bb9-9352277389eb_zpsae79aee3.jpg

These are my tennis balls.
Mommy says it wouldn't be very unladylike of me to not use the word "tennis" before the word balls.
((giggle))

 photo stanley8_zps7f6d99b2.jpg

But I don't like playing with any of them.
I like playing with this one!

 photo stanley9_zps580fdea8.jpg

We still haven't found the other half. But I do know I didn't eat it.

Have a great weekend, everyone!!

How I spend my mornings.

After I wake up and eat breakfast, I'm still groggy. So I sit on Mommy's lap as she has her coffee.

 photo lap1_zps8c6a6192.jpg

Then I start to wake up.

 photo lap2_zps6d9cde9d.jpg

THEN I get "the look..."

 photo stella4_zps81f3a0c2.jpg

I WANT TO PLAY... NOW!!!

 photo lap3_zpsfe96715f.jpg

All under a minute and a half.

Mommy never gets to drink a hot cup of coffee in peace anymore.
((giggle))

Something happened as I slept...

Somehow soft, cloth tape "mysteriously" appeared on the inside of my floppy ears!

 photo stellaears1_zps252497f1.jpg

Mommy says I look adorable. But I'm not so sure.

For someone who's a licensed hairdresser, her scissor skills are something to be desired. Did she cut that tape blindfolded and with her feet??!!
(I'm so embarrassed)

 photo stellaears2_zps6877dab0.jpg

Even Gracie didn't recognize me! But when she did, I heard her giggle under her breath.

 photo stellaears4_zps562c6ad3.jpg

OMG! I hope Chesty doesn't see me like this!!
I'll be mortified!

 photo stellaears3_zps1c9213a7.jpg

Maybe I should wear a scarf? A sombrero? A beret? A 10 Gallon Hat? A Dolly Parton wig??

"Tumble out of bed and stumble to the kitchen; pour myself a cup of ambition, and yawn, and stretch, and try to come to life..."

Semper Fi-do!

This is Chesty XIV.

 photo 94fe32ea-7f5d-4dbb-b656-3bf1fb55392d_zps07e08f3e.jpg

He's the new English Bulldog mascot for the United States Marine Corps.

Isn't he dreamy?!

I wonder if he's on PuppyMatch.com?

Ooh-rah!

Have you missed me?

I have been so busy!!

Guess what??!!!
I boldly went where no man puppy has gone before!

 photo tread8_zps8a88d0aa.jpg

I went upstairs!!

 photo d915a756-8381-40b9-96f0-1732b64bcc32_zps8653e3a4.jpg

It's like a whole new world up there! So much to explore!! I felt like Lewis and Clark!! Only I wasn't Lewis or Clark because they were men and I'm a puppy. I didn't have a boat either. But you know what I mean.

Mommy went to the store to escape leave us for awhile. She came home with some kind of crazy contraption. I'm not really sure what it does but I made sure I supervised as Daddy put it together for her.

 photo tread1_zps94d32654.jpg

She brought me home a new toy too!!! YaY!!
It kinda looks like roadkill, but it's not.

 photo tread2_zps3856658d.jpg

It's fun!

 photo tread3_zpsa5e48263.jpg

Gracie tried to take it, but I wouldn't let her.
Then Mommy came in and ruined it by taking it away from me and giving it HER! Hmpf!

 photo tread4_zps1bbdacea.jpg

But about an hour ago I got even with Mommy...

 photo tread5_zps25b9c660.jpg

I head butted her in the mouth and she got a bloody, fat lip.
I learned that move from watching Arnold Schwarzenegger movies with Daddy.
(I love 80's action movies)

((giggle))

 photo dog_paw_zpsef6e3240.gif

Okay, I gotta go. But...
"I'll be back."
