Padfoot here……..a month late posting about my life (because I am having so much fun it’s ridiculous!) I have settled in nicely in my forever home and I overheard Dad saying he can’t imagine life without me, so I know I have the “peeps” wrapped!
Lets see….what has been happening? Well, I completed private lessons for being a good doggie… of course I excelled (at everything except other dogs…) I just can’t seem to be nice when someone barks at me. Mom is working on it though and she says I’ll get there (whatever that means…)
With this nice warm weather comes swimming. Boy oh boy do I LOVE to swim! I go a couple of times a week and I even tried to retrieve a duck! It does tire me out though… I usually follow up with a nap under the apple tree! We go for lots of nice walks at Dad’s secret fishing spot and there is a big pond and a swimming hole and I love them both! I am the king of the yard now. I especially like laying in the middle of the vegetable garden… the cucumbers make a nice soft bed but the “peeps” do a lot of yelling of my name when I rest in the raised beds (they love me…what can I say?)
Did see my first rabbit the other day…wooo hoooo! I am the slayer of all rodents large and small. I have caught chipmunks, squirrels and mice and moles. (I have always said that I see no need for cats in this world) In fact, those are the one thing I have not caught yet even though they saunter through our yard daily and I do give it the “old college try”! Did I mention that I caught a goldfinch and when Dad saw that I was chewing I promptly spit it out…. he laughed and said it looked like a yellow spit ball! Mom was grossed out! I felt bad….
Anyway, I have been so good that we go out for “Rover’s Reward” at the local ice cream spot. It consists of a small amount of vanilla softserve with 3 dog biscuits and a healthy portion of peanut butter sauce. I clean that up at the speed of light, don’t leave a trace anywhere! UMMMMMMMM! Yes, life is good. I had my first real bath the other day because when we were visiting a friend I found the good smelling cow manure her cows produce and I promptly rolled to my hearts delight! Ahhhhhh, Eau d’ Hereford….my personal choice!
Well, that’s all for now. I have squeaky balls and basketballs to chase and chipmunks to terrorize….. ;-)
Much love to all! (as I have lots to give)
