One of my favorite afternoon activities... sitting on the porch and watching and waiting for something... maybe a squirrel or even a good stick or pinecone to fall from the trees.
My new love is sweet potatoes. Mom buys these dehydrated sweet taters and they are so good! I just love them and I will do just about anything for one. My favorite toy right now is something called a puzzle bone.
I also am fond of my big stuffed moose. Well, most of the time. The other night, we had just finished watching a scary movie and I guess I was spooked or something. I jumped off the bed and ran into my dad's office and began furiously barking. Dad came and checked on me (Mom was still creeped out from the movie. Coupled with the fact that I don't bark unless there is someone or something lurking around that is not supposed to be, mom was spooked) When Dad got there, he realized that I was only barking at my moose (aka meeshka mooshka) on the sofa in my dad's office. What? That thing is scary in the dark!
Mom, you did what? Ordered me a new bed? Why? My bed is just dandy right here! Well, in that case, being 20% off and all, I MAY use it, but don't get your hopes up. This is my place right here, on the sofa!
McGillicutty climbed in between us right where he usually sleeps. He rolled over, put his head on my pillow, and kissed me until he fell asleep...literally! As he kissed me, his big brown eyes closed and he fell asleep mid-lick with his tongue sticking out. Then he rolled over onto his dad's shoulder and slept there the rest of the night. What a sweet, sweet boy!
When I first saw him being rolled toward me in his crate, the entire crate started rocking. No more worries of whether he would recognize me or not...I knew it! When I opened the crate, he just started jumping and jumping and doing those Irish Terrier cartwheels in the air. He couldn't stop kissing me! Even when I walked him out to the grass to potty, he was so sidetracked by our presence. All he wanted to do was give kisses. He had been saving them for us!
McGillicutty: "This was the night before I flew out to California. I had the best time with my Mom and Dad in New Orleans. We stayed at the W Hotel, and I loved it. I love New Orleans...this is my second time here and I love watching the people and trying to eat the yummy garbage off the ground (Mom won't let me though)."
McGillicutty's Update from Sunny CA:
McGillicutty: "I am doing fine. I'm eating like a pig and playing with an Airdale bitch very well. I seem to be adjusting here, and I LOVE the weather. All the people are so friendly and they give me lots of love. I'm not sure why I'm here....maybe to be a movie star or something. They are preparing me for something spectacular, I just know it! I'm not sure when Mom and Dad will be here, but they better be prepared for a heck of a trip in that crate...Phew--Was I glad to be out of that!!
