all alone

My mom left me to go to Tennessee for Christmas. Normally we all go with her in the car but since she only had 2 weeks off from work she decided to leave all of us. But we have our amazing petsitter staying wih us.... But I miss mom! This picture was my mom's Christmas picture. I wanted to look pathetic so that she comes home soon!!!

A rainy Day at the Park...

Mom got a new Flip Video as a Christmas gift from work, so she's been taking videos of ME!!! I hope you like my Jolly Ball prowess! It was nice to get out and play because it's been raining alot here in Southern California!! It hasn't stopped mom and I from running! But it seems mom is sick-so the best way to exercise a cattle dog when you cant exercise? JOLLY BALL!!!


 My mom would also like to remind you that she is running the Carlsbad Half Marathon again this year for a doggie charity!!! This will be the 3rd year in a row she'll be running and raising money for Labrador Rescuers! Could you share $1 to help Labrador Rescuers rescue, rehabilitate and rehome Labs? It would make me very happy and make my mom very happy! She's got a little over $800 to raise.... can you spare $1? remember, your donation is tax deductible. If you live outside of the US, you can donate as well-they take foreign donations!

Another 3 Day weekend with mom!

Yep! I have mom for 3 days again this weekend! Her work day was cancelled yesterday so I got to hang with mom, went to work with her briefly and then this morning, I got a special Saturday morning treat-Jolly ball in the fog at the park!!!! I could get used to these 3 day weekends with my mom!!! Maybe I'll get to go to the park tomorrow as well!

I think tonight I get to go meet a new Labrador puppy, Logan! He's the new family member of mom's best friend! It should be fun!

SHEEP HERDING!!!

I saw Sheep! I saw Sheep!!!! Mom took me sheep herding today! I was SO excited!

We went into the arena-Mom wasn't sure how I'd do since it had been a year since we had last gone! Can you believe Mom has been a Cattle Dog Slacker mom and hasn't take me sheep herding! Something about her job! blah blah blah!

But today I saw my sheep! I got up close and personal with my sheep! I remembered all my commands and was actually driving the sheep away from mom!!!!

I got muddy and wet today!

Mom and I went on a trail run in the rain!!!! I got wet and muddy! Mom and I had a really good time! We ran 5.61 miles. 5.61 miles of BUNNIES!!!!! The Bunnies were all out playing, it was Bunny Hour (just before the sun sets) and I got to chase alot of them. I didnt catch any though!

We ran to the beach. I saw to black labradors playing with their tennis ball in the water! Water? yuck!!!

I love going to the beach but I do not get into the water! I dig holes in the sand and if it's hot I'll put my paws in the water or lie down at the waters edge, but I do not go into the water!

I had a wonderful weekend with my mom! I wish she didnt have to work!

I ran 13 miles with Mom today....

Mom got me up early today-something about "beating the heat" on her long run! I've been pretty lucky-mom was sick and at home on Thursday, so I got Jolly ball playtime!! That was very exciting.

Mom spent all day with me yesterday-she screamed at her tv. Then we went on a short night run. Mom had her headlamp on and I saw lots of eyes....

This morning we got up early, doesnt she know that I was getting my beauty sleep!! But I got up-I cant have mom leaving the house without me!!

We ran down to the "foggy place"...lots of fog horns were going off near the big load ships! Mom loved it-the fog left me with wet ears and a wet head!

we ran and ran and then the fog started to disappear and that horrible sun started coming up. Mom and I dont like sun. We prefer cool dark! When Mom and I reached the 10 mile mark we found a lovely Black labrador girl. She was on the sidewalk, without humans. Mom and I continued but the Lab Lady followed. So we had to stop our run and mom took me off leash and put the Lab lady on my leash since she was racing around and running into the street. Mom was knocking on doors at 8:30am trying to find her owner. Her stupid owner didn't know or didnt care that she was out-Mom should have taken her home!

We continued our run...we stopped in the shade so I could drink water. I have a great talent, I can drink out of mom's handheld water bottle. She takes it just for me!!! I love my mom!

We finished our run! 13 miles!!! That is the farthest I have ever run with mom. I've run 10-11 miles but never a half marathon!!!

I'm sorry mom hasnt let me come by to visit everyone. Her stupid job occupies so much of "my time"...mom doesnt even turn her computer on during the week!

I hope all of my friends are great!!!

a surprise visit to the ......VET... **gasp**

I've been limping. Mom thought it might be my front shoulder. Some days I wouldn't limp and some days I would. Mom was very confused so on Wednesday, she made an appointment for me to go see my vet on Friday before mom went to work.

Well, when mom came home from work super late on Thursday night and took me out to pee, she noticed I didn't want to put any pressure on my left paw. So she looked at it-OUCH! One of my pads was swollen on the side! She looked to see if she could see anything poking out-but she couldn't. So she soaked my paw in hot salty water at 1am.

At 8am, we went to the vet. I don't like the vet! The vet has "gets panic attacks" written on my chart-how dare they say that about me!!! Mom tries to only take me if I really need to go-and Friday, I needed to go. The only way my vet could look at my paws was for mom to lie on top of me. It tends to calm me down and I cant move. But I tried! When she was touching my ouchie paw pad I was trying to move!!!

The vet scraped the surface of my pad but couldn't see anything-but she did see a hole. She told mom that she thought I might have some "plant part" in my pad and the only way she could check it out was to sedate me.....S-E-D-A-T-E..... that word sounds so scary!!!

I was taken away from mom into "the back." They stuck me with a needle, I yelped, and stuck something in me that made me sleepy and drugged up and then OUT! I don't remember anything after this until I woke up. It was wierd...I was wobbly and my tongue was hanging out of my mouth! But my mom was there!!


She told me that I had a little tiny stone taken out of my paw pad. My vet saved it to mom could have it. It's little and must have been sharp! but it's out now!!! I have drugs that I have to take every 24 hours. But if they make my paw feel better, I'll take them!!

Mom took me home-all i wanted to do was sleep! I growled at mom once-she was shocked because I NEVER have growled at her! But I wasnt myself!!

My grandpa came down just after mom left me to go to her stupid job! He spent about 3 hours with me as I became less groggy! It was super nice to hang with my grandpa!! I love him!!
