Happy New Year!

Today was my last day in Nashville. mom loaded the car today and we got a long run in tonight, 5 miles. Tomorrow, we start our 3 day drive back to Los Angeles from nashville. mom says she doesn't know what route we might take, since there is a winter snow advisory for the Oklahoma/texas area. So we might go the southern route thru Dallas. That would be my first time in dallas!

Mom and I hope all of our human and doggie friends have a safe and wonderful New Year! we'll be on the road, so please pardon us if we don't visit you until saturday!

Happy New Year and mom wants to chime in GO VOLS something about an important college football game that is on tomorrow night.... I guess I'm a TENNESSEE fan as well since I am an orange color and have a TENNESSEE harness!! GO VOLS!

It's cold here in Nashville!!!! But that hasn't stopped me! I've been running with mom and hanging in the back yard! yep, my granny and grandpa have a back yard, unlike my house in California. There are tons of friends out there that I go see every morning and as often as I can! I didn't know Mr Squirrel and his family would follow me to tennessee for a vacation as well! that is so nice of Mr Squirrel!

I want to wish a Happy Barkday to a fellow cattle dog, Josie! Josie doesn't have a blog but she visits mine regularly! And I wanted to wish her a Happy Barkday-she's 10 years old today! I sure do hope you get lots of yummy treats today!

Also...if any of my doggie friends and humans need an extra calendar for the year 2010, a few of us cattle Dogs put together a pawesome calendar to benefit New Hope Cattle Dog Rescue! Check it out..we're stars!

Sunrise on Day #2

Day 2 started off COLD in Holbrook Arizona! We drove and drove and drove. Mom filled up with diesel and I'd get to leave pee mail. I spent most of the day in the front seat sleeping! And sometimes sleeping with one of the cats. Both Blossom and 3 Perf decided they wanted to sleep next to me!!

When we drove into Oklahoma, in the dark, my day was made! We stopped at the Visitors center on I-40 heading east. They have a dog park there!!! We stopped here last year and I got to play, so when we pulled in tonight, in the dark, I knew exactly where I was! I headed to the large dog area with mom in tow carrying my Jolly ball and proceeded to play until I was tired! It's my favorite stop! I like Oklahoma because they have dog parks at their Visitors centers!

We are getting ready for bed now. We nearly made it to Oklahoma City-we're just west of the city. Tomorrow we should make it to Nashville where my gramps and gradma will be waiting for ME!

Day one of our trip

We've stopped for the night!! Yippee! We have a nice room and something called Route 66! All I know is that it's colder here in Arizona and I'm hungry! Mom and I are out so that I can leave a billion pee mails and a poop, then. It's off to bed! Another long day of travelling tomorrow (that means sleeping for me!)

I hope everyone checked out my Christmas Card on yesterdays post!

A rainy Monday

Rain, wind, cold...that is what we have in Los Angeles right now. Mom loves it. I'm ok with it-unless we are driving! All that water splashing up from the puddles in the road-nope I don't like that!

Mom and I went on a 5.2 mile run tonight! It was super windy! But we had fun! I got to leave lots of pee mails and met a few doggies that were out with their mommies! It seems the only people who were out tonight were doggies and their moms!

Maybe tomorrow we can run in the rain so that I come home smelling of wet dog!!!

My Favorite Park

These are pictures from my favorite park! Mom and I walked up to the park on the Sunday after Thanksgiving. It was a beautiful day! I got to play with my tennis ball and I watched lots of squirrels! Silly mom had forgotten to download these pictures until now!

Tonight we went to Hermosa Beach for a sunset run! It's a concrete jungle-not alot of green stuff to leave pee mail! But I did get to meet lots of doggies! Mom had forgotten just how many dogs are in the beach cities!

Happy Thanksgiving

I give thanks to my mom who rescued me from the shelter on the day I was supposed to be euthanized, whatever that word means. Does it mean I'm getting more food? I love my mommy! And I show my love by always being at my moms side! I'm her little soft sided piece of Velcro! I'm so thankful for my mom! And for the yummy food I ate tonight!

I hope every doggie and kitty out there had a great Thanksgiving!

Sheep herding....

Mom decided that saturday was going to be MY day! So we went sheep herding on saturday morning! We drove to Phelan for our 11am lesson! We were going to be working on fundamentals outruns, my go bys and awees. So we were in the arena working on my outruns! Mom did alot of running pushing me wider and wider! Then we took the sheep into a corner in the big field and Mom and I were worked on my flanks and my inside flanks! I really enjoyed it, once I realized I was allowed to get in close to the sheep!

Help Ms Snickers!

As many of you know Miss Snickers is courageously fighting another health battle. There's a strong belief out there that all our prayers which have poured in for her from all over the world have given her strength and she showed a miraculous improvement today. But she is still a very sick little girl and she needs our help.
We have all been asked to send Snickers a huge wave of love and hope, one that will send her a gigantic surge of energy to help her beat her lymphoma.
Please join in for the Worldwide Moment for Snickers, today at 5 p.m. Iowa time. That is when Snickers' family will sit down for dinner. It's our mission to turn toward Iowa at that time and observe a moment of silent prayer or meditation, and wish at the deepest part of hearts for Snickers' recovery. Then we need to express our support whichever way we can.We are to blow a kiss in their direction. Our big, collective kiss will be delivered to Snickers and her family on the wind.

Snickers needs the Power of the Paw right now more than ever.

So please join us as all of Snickers' friends from all over the world surround her with our loving, healing thoughts. She is our friend in need and we will all be there for her.

Power of the Paw
