We got to have a fun Christmas sleepover at Gramma and cousin Bowie’s house! I have never spent the night at Gramma’s house before, but Bailie has. It was so exciting, I couldn’t wait to leave for Gramma’s on Christmas Eve day! Even kitty cousin Bowie was thrilled to spend two days with his GBGV cousins. You can feel the love from this photo, right? [Read more…]
Saturday, Bailie and I went with Mom to Gramma’s house for a few hours. Katie decided to stay home as her arthritis was bugging her, and she was tired from playing with one of her boyfriends on Friday night. Bailie and I love visiting Gramma, and we really love going for a walk in her neighborhood because it is wooded and full of squirrels! On Friday we got a tiny amount of snow which was melting and making a mess on the streets. Thanks to the mess on the road, I got the new look to my belly fur. Yep, I’m smiling because I’m pretty proud of myself. Mom wasn’t smiling and had some naughty words about my “new look”. [Read more…]
This past weekend we went to Gramma’s house, thus mischief at Gramma’s house! Yes, we go to Gramma’s house a lot but we, of course, love visiting her for so many reasons! Gramma loves us granddogs, always has good stuff for us to eat, has lots of critters to watch since she lives in a wooded area and when we take walks there, there are so many great smells! Oh, I almost forgot, her cat, our cousin Bowie, just loves us visiting too! We don’t see much of him when we are there but we are sure he totally appreciates us stopping by!
Gramma always has such nice decorations on her front door so I had mom take a shot of me at the door waiting for her to come and open it up. She is all ready for Valentine’s Day later this week! Once we had our walk around the area to check on the critter situation, we returned to Gramma’s and she gave us a nice Trader Joes dog cookie…they are so yummy and they are healthy too! Now it was time to assume my post in the living room
window looking for squirrels in the trees. They love to race along and jump from branch to branch…I go absolutely nuts! Since we are not allowed on the furniture I have to stand up to see out the window. Sometimes there are wabbits racing around on the ground and once and a while there are even deer out in the yard! When we first moved back from Germany and stayed with Gramma I could sit and look out at the wildlife for hours, it is like a live reality show for dogs!
Gramma had decided to make a turkey, so I asked if I could help out in the kitchen, I just love helping in the kitchen. I am a pretty good chef myself and I can make sure the floor stays squeaky clean! The only problem with turkey is that it takes forever to cook! As you can see, Katie and I finally gave up and just decided to lie down and wait…who knows when that bird would come out of the oven!
Once the bird was done Gramma put it on the counter and I took it upon myself to give it a good sniff over to make sure it was just right…I did have to be careful not to burn my nose! Katie and I got to sample the meat and some of the other parts that mom and Gramma do not eat and I have to say it was mighty tasty! Unfortunately, we did not get to eat as much as we wanted but what we did get was scrumptious!
After everyone was finished eating it was time to clean up the mess and I felt that since I had helped Gramma get dinner ready, the least I could do would be to help her clean up. I happily worked on the pre-wash cycle for her with the dishes in the dishwasher.
What a super fun day at Gramma’s house! Thanks Gramma! I love you and can’t wait until we come visit again hopefully pretty soon!!!
For my Monday Mischief I was up to my ears in leaves! If you follow me very much you would know that my gramma kind of lives in the woods. I mean she is in civilization but it is a heavily wooded neighborhood with tons of trees, squirrels, chipmunks and other critters. We love to visit Gramma because she always has treats for us and we get to see lots of critter action out her windows which are mostly right at dog level. I never met my grandpa, but I have heard he loved animals so I am betting
that since he was a builder and actually built that house he put the windows low in case a dog would ever live there. Cats don’t count since they climb and lay on top of everything so window height is not an issue for them.
Anyway, because of all the trees, gramma has lots of leaves which her neighbor usually takes care of for her. She does not have them bagged, just piles them up in certain areas of the yard. Gramma doesn’t have
much of a lawn because it is too shady, so no worries about the grass dying under the leaves. Well, one day when we were out visiting, mom took me out to play in the leaves and she took her camera along too.
It was so much fun jumping into the leaves! They were so deep that I almost disappeared! I am pretty short, you know! Then there are those sneaky squirrels racing around in the trees storing their food for the winter – I felt like I was hiding in the leaves
and was hoping to jump out and capture one of those furry tailed guys but no such luck. Mom just watched me and snapped away with her camera. She got some good shots of me with the pretty colors and also my total focus on squirrels.
My sister did not come out to play with us since she does not like getting dirty or messy. She would not like to be in the leaves, I could care less if I am a mess as long as I am having a good time!
Thanks gramma for letting me go out and play in your leaves, it was really fun! Sorry I tracked so many into the house but those leaves just stick to my fur like glue!
