We Went to the Beach

Mom and Dad took us to the beach on Saturday. We ran and ran and ran! Cooper was more interested in the bushes, but I really liked the water. Mom took 56 pictures - thank goodness for digital cameras(!). She was constantly trying to get us to pose but Cooper pretty much ignored her and I was too busy running after the birds. The shore birds are a bunch of teasers - they would let me get pretty close and then fly away once I got close enough to touch them. There was a negative tide and we bounced out on the rocks and got to see starfish and shellfish stuck on the rocks. It was a beautiful day and we were soaking wet when we got back into the car. Dad said someone smelled like a wet dog in the car and then he would look over his shoulder at Coop and me. Well, what did he expect? He takes us to the beach, we play in the water and he is surprised we smell like wet dogs? How long is it going to take us to raise our pawrents I ask you? A loooong time! BOL!

Sunny Day Today

It feels like spring today - the sun is out and all the daffodils and crocus' are coming up. Our backyard still feels like a mud pit but not as damp. Mum took us for a walk down to the park last night and hopefully tonight we will go to Bald Hill for a turn or two. We didn't get Mum anything for Valentine's Day, we pretty much tell her how much we love her every day.

Dad has cleaned out the laundry room and it is freaking us out. Can't decide if they are taking a trip and leaving us or throwing us in with the recycling. Suitcases are not our favorite objects - we figure they are leaving us and we get very clingy. Of course, we are pretty much clingly all the time in case treats are dropped. BOL!
Happy Valentine's Day!

So Much Politicking

Cooper and I have been watching a lot of CNN lately and it seems like politics are all the rage. We aren't sure who we will be voting for - we are still waiting for our voter registration cards to arrive. But we decided we should be proactive in this year of voting and created our own buttons. If a beagle can win Best of Show at Westminster, there's room for a corgi in the White House!

Getting Ready for Valentine's Day

Mum is better - she was sick all last week which was soooo boring! We love a good biped as much as the next canine, but when they get sick, the whole fud chain stops. We spent most of last week on the bed with Mum and slept about fifteen hours out of every twenty-four. Our play time came to a total standstill which was almost grounds for mutiny. Once she saw the doctor and got on some medicine she was on the mend. She felt so good the day after her office visit, we got a walk down to Philomath Park which was pawsome! The creek was flooding so we did not get to do the whole circuit but it was a good walk nonetheless.

Tonight Mum felt we should break out some Valentine duds and take pictures. She began the process by bribing us with dental chewies. For some reason I (Dozer) took three times longer to finish mine and Coop managed to have 4 chewies! I think they were smaller than mine or at least that is what Mum says.

Next thing we knew, Mum had us on chairs, looking out windows and generally behaving like super models
while she snapped away. We should get paid for looking so good!

My profile pretty much sets the ladies' hearts to pitter-pattering. There is nothing like a good Pembroke profile to set hearts aflutter.

Time for us to reclaim the bed and get our beauty sleep.
