Bells Bend Park with Banner!

Yesterday, Mom and I went with Banner and his mommy and daddy to Bells Bend Park in Ashland City, TN. Banner goes alot-he goes swimming in the river and pond, so he was showing me one of his favorite places to run and smell! We did have fun! We were there for about an hour and a half, Banner ate some dead animal, played with me, we raced around and I watched him jump and swim ALOT! We ended up walking about 3.7 miles so when we got home Mom and I took a nap!!!

A Christmas Eve Run....




Mom and I went for a run this morning before it started raining! We ran 5.5 miles-half of it was against the wind and I drafted behind mom!!! I don't think she was very happy about that! We ran past a very big building called the Parthenon. I don't think it's the real one-but it's kinda cool!!!

I sure do hope every doggie has a wonderful holiday!!!

We're in Nashville and I got to play with my cousin, Banner!















































We finally arrived yesterday! We got in around 1pm and I raced inside to see Grandpa and Granny!!! I was greeted with hugs and I wagged my butt and gave them all kisses!!! Mom thinks I was just happy to be out of the car!

Mom took me out into the yard to play with my Nashville Jolly Ball!Mom had bought it for me last Christmas-so it's like brand new!!! It was so nice to play and play!!! We also went on a cold run last night....I think mom got really cold on the run but I didn't! I played the grab the leash game alot on our run! When we got home we sat down to warm up then.....the bestest thing happened. My cousin, Banner, came to visit me!!! When he came in the house, I whined and cried with excitement! I had met him last Christmas and I remembered him!!! So we went outside to race around the yard and then came back inside to play! It was so much fun!!!! I didn't want him to leave but he had to go home and go to bed! I hope he comes to visit again tonight!

We made it to Conway Arkansas...











































Mom drove and drove and drove today!!! We started off in Tucumcari, NM and left super early this morning! It was COLD!!! Mom went to Denny's for breakfast and gave me her bacon and sausage...it was yummy!!! We got diesel and then continued thru Amarillo into Oklahoma. We stopped at the Oklahoma Welcome center for one reason...they had a DOG PARK!!! It was awesome!!! They had a small dog park and a large dog park! Mom took me into the large dog park and threw the tennis ball to me. I had the place all to my self and had a great time! So if any of you doggies are travelinh east on I-40 heading into Oklahoma, you have to stop at the Welcome Center and check out their dog park!! Mom wants to tell everyone!!

After I played at the dog park, we were on our way again. Mom was going to have lunch in Oklahoma City with a friend. It ended up being a late lunch and I got to go out for a walk! We stopped at lake Hefner, north of Oklahoma City. Mom and I walked around-she took pictures and then she ate lunch. It was cold in Oklahoma City, mom said it was slightly warmer than Amarillo -she said Amarillo was bitterly cold...didn't she say that about Tucumcari??? Hmm I'm seeing a pattern here mom.

Now we're in Conway, Ark, our last stop before getting to my nanny and grandpa's house in Nashville. Mom really wanted to make it in 3 days but I guess 3 1/2 days isn't too bad...

Mom said once we get to a solid internet connection, she'll let me visit all my friends. We have limited internet here.

We're in Tucumcari, NM.....


Mom wanted to get at least to Amarillo tonight, but with us losing time as we head east-she stopped to let all of us have extra time in the hotel room. I got to play in snow today!!! We stopped in Flagstaff and they had tons of snow!! Mom let me out to play and I immediately sunk into about 6 inches of snow...Mom was laughing as she was trying not to sink into the snow!! She threw my tennis ball-it got lost in the snow!!!

Now we're in the hotel room, the kitties are acting crazy and mom is drinking a glass of wine and eating a pizza....all I want to do is play with my ball!!! But Mom is saying something about it being bitterly cold out or something like that!!! Mom put on the heavy down jacket you own!!!

We're on the Road.....




We left Los Angeles today. Mom took me to the park to play with my Jolly Ball before we left. So I slept most of the way to Needles California, which is where we are now.....the traffic was really bad leaving Los Angeles. Didn't all those people know that we wanted to make Flagstaff today but didn't because traffic was horrible!! But we're out of the car now...I just ate my dinner and we're going to bed. Mom had hight hopes of making it to Oklahoma City tomorrow night....but now that plan might be out the window....

I hope everyone had a really nice friday!

A rainy monday at the courts...


It has been rainy and windy and cold here! Yesterday, Mom worked so I had my petsitter come in during the middle of the day! Because it was soaking wet, we went to the tennis courts to play instead of the park. At least I got to go out to play even though the weather was horrible!!

Mom is off now until the 5th of january....we'll be driving back to Tennessee in a few days, with our kitties. Mom wanted to go back for the holidays and didn't want to fly me, so we're driving....days and days in the car with mom and the kitties!

I went sheep herding on sunday afternoon.

It was awesome. We were in a big field and I was sent off numerous times to round up the sheep from afar! Mom is amazed that I now leave her side to go get the sheep! We're hoping to go herding before leaving for the holidays, but there has been alot of snow so the weather may get in the way!! Mom is going to upload the pictures soon-I hope!! I love to herd my sheep!!

Jolly Ball at the Park!



Mom and I went to the park today on a very cold windy day and I got to play with my Jolly Ball! It was AWESOME! I really love to play with my Jolly Ball. of course Mom took her camera so she could catch me in action! She needs a longer lens so she can take better pictures of me in action!!

It was an awesome day with mom!

My Mom is off to Scotland.....


Sorry I've been a bit absent this week. My mom found out on sunday morning that her Granny in Scotland had passed away-so she's been a bit preoccupied with arrangements to fly there(which she does tomorrow) and of course work!! But she wanted me to blog before she left so I could say hello to all my friends!

I've been receiving LOTS of christmas cards-mom is jealous!!! Mom is waiting for our cards to come in the mail-and now that she's leaving the country for a few days....I'll continue to be the christmas card slacker!!!

My Uncle and my pet sitter will betaking care of me while Mom is away! I'll still miss mom though-but I'll have the kitties to chase!!

I hope everyone has a great week and weekend. I'll blog when mom comes back!!

Another day at Panavision!!!



Today mom took me to work!!! Panavision! I LOVE going to Panavision because I play all day long!!! I have lots of friends at Panavision who always come and say hello, give me treats and throw the tennis ball for me! Mom always says I get exhausted when I come to panavision because I never nap!! Why would I nap when there is so much for me to do!!!

Normally we leave Panavision around 2pm, but today we're still here working...well Mom is here working, I'm playing!!! Mom says I'm goign to sleep good tonight! I'll show here-I'll stay up all night!!!

An Ocean Trails run with mom in FOG!

























































This morning mom took me to ocean trails for a 4 mile run! It was foggy...mom loved it! I loved it too because it was cooler! I met alot of doggies on the trail this morning. I saw Alec, my Aussie Shepherd friend. I also met a black lab who was very nice and then there were a few dogs who barked alot at me!! I don't really pay attention to that because I'm usually on a mission to the beach! We always go to the beach and I always find a tennis ball. Today I found two! Which one should i play with?? I played with both! I made mom throw both of them! We didn't stay too long because mom wanted to finish her run before the sun came out! Me too! I had fun!!

When we got home, mom fed me breakfast! And then I took a nap! Life is good!

Trouble on a Tuesday?



That silly white and black cat of mine. She is always getting into stuff! She's either attacking my orange cat, clinging to the screen door, racing around the house, knocking stuff off the table-so I'm always on house patrol!! I've always got my eye on her!!

I'll be leaving the house soon-going sheep herding! Woo Hoo! Get to see my sheep!!! Hopefully it doesn't rain!!

The Fountains...

YIKES! Mom took me down to see the new fountains that adorn the Plaza/Gateway walkway at the Cruise ship terminal and Harbor. These fountains were designed by the Bellagio fountain people....I don't know why mom wanted to see them because they made ALOT of noise!! They popped, splashed and I didn't like them!!! And mom wanted me to sit on the edge so she could take a picture?? I think not mom!! We were out for a run and you made me sit in front of popping splashing water?????? Guess again mom!!! No good pics for you!!

Rainy Day Monday


It looks like it might rain here in California. Mom has been cleaning up the house-I'm not too happy about that because I would rather be playing, but at least she's in the house with me!! I think we may go for a run later....she did take me out to play with my tennis ball and of course brought her camera....

Saturday......




Mom slept in today. She worked really late last night-my uncle took me out last night around 10pm for a walk and then mom took me out when she came back from work around 1am. So I let her sleep in today! When she finally woke up I was very anxious to play!!! I gave her a tennis ball immediately!

My uncle took me out this morning and then mom and I ran an errand and they watch some silly football game...I heard mom cheering Rocky Top or something. All I know was they were stuck in front of the tv until it was finished!! Didn't they know that I wanted to play??

Well I did get to play, with my kitty Blossom!! She and I have alot of fun!

Around 2:30 mom and I drove up to the valley. When we go to the valley I know I'm going to see grandpa...amd we did! Woo Hoo!! I played with my jolly ball in his yard, then mom and I went running along the bike path. I had a great time-lots of smells, lots of new dogs and mom and I got good exercise! We ran 4.1 miles...I was pooped and slept on the way home!!

I hope everyone ha d a nice saturday!
