Lazy Days of Summer and Bugs

Well, it feels like summer has finally arrived. Still getting a lot of rain, bugs, and mud. Did I mention bugs! OMG they are soooo bad. I hear Mom complaining about it every day at least two times a day. She's also thinking she should invest in the bug spray companies because between her and the horses she is going through gallons of bug spray. I guess I feel pretty lucky that those bugs pretty much leave me alone. Mom you can use some of my frontline plus if you want. It works great for me. Hang in there Mom winter will be here before you know it and then we will be complaining about the cold. I think I am going to just enjoy all life has to offer and enjoy the summer and the bugs.

Bye for now. As always your friend Trooperdo.

Summer Fun

I know it has been awhile since I have posted anything. Mom has been keeping me busy playing with my doggy friends and enjoying the summer. On the 4th of July we went over to a friends house to watch some fireworks. They have brand new chickens! They are so much fun. I chased them around the barn and Mom saw me and was trying to catch me but I was so fast and having so much fun running through the pooh trying to catch one of those chickens that I did not hear her calling me. You should have seen me I had the biggest smile on my face. Then one of the boys caught me and gave me to my Mom. Oh no, now I'm in trouble! I was a mess with all that pooh all over me. I had to get a quick rinsing and then Mom kept me on my leash for the rest of the night. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted and I gave those chickens a run for their money. I sure did. Anyway, hope all my friends out there are having a fun summer too. Bye for now.

The Dog In Me Makes Me Do It

Mom was sitting at her computer the other day downloading pictures from her camera when she saw me at the door wanting to come in. That is something I do quite often is go in and out, in and out. Sometimes Mom gets annoyed by this but if I could let myself in and out there would be no problem. I'm thinking doggie door! Hello.... Mom..... did you hear me? Doggie Door! Anyway, back to my story. So, Mom lets me in and I run straight to her bedroom and jump on her bed. No this isn't good so off I go to my toys. Sniff...sniff... Hummmmm. I went over to where Mom was on her computer and started crying because I was not sure what to do with this tasty morsel I had in my mouth. Mom looked down and said, " Trooper what's the matter? Why are your crying? So, I showed her and opened my mouth and dropped it at her feet. Well, she started screaming Yuk, Trooper what is that? It doesn't have a head! It was a mouse that I got from the cat. Barney gave it to me but I didn't know that I wasn't supposed to bring it in the house. Mom was all upset and took it away from me and put it in the trash. Oh well, I am a dog after all. That's what we dogs do. The next best thing to dead mice are Dad's dirty socks. Yummy! Mom gets disgusted with that too and will not let me take them to bed. This morning I woke up bright and early and to Mom's dismay I had one of Dad's dirty socks on the bed. I really do try to please her but the dog in me makes me do it!

I am feeling a bit confused and sad today. You see, my big sister Casey did not come home last night?? She likes to go out in our big back field and I think Mr. Fox might have gotten her. He got a bunch of our chickens a few weeks ago. Mom is sad and said she is going to call around to see if maybe someone picked her up because they did not know where she lived. I went outside this morning to look around for her and decided to sit on the big rock and scout things out. I keep thinking I hear her so I run around looking for her. Woof, Woof? No Casey Dog. I feared I have lost my sister.... Mom told me all dogs go to heaven and for this I am thankful. Casey showed me the ropes when Mom first brought me home as a puppy and for this I will always remember her. I am going to curl up in the chair next to her bed for a while.

R.I.P. Casey from your little brother Trooperdo.

It has been raining for 2 days now. Mom has not been able to take me for a walk so I have decided to chew on her book instead. Needless to say she did not like that too much. I am going to go take a nap and look out the window at the horses. They are not very happy either because Mom is keeping them off the pastures because of the rain. The grass is looking really green though. The horse's will be happy eating all that lush green grass very soon. Well, Dad is home from work got to go. Bye.
