Bailie and I have been busy putting our goals for the new year down in writing. Every year we decide on our goals. At our house, we don’t make any resolutions. Resolutions are what people make and never actually do. Our goals are real goals that we work on during the entire year. [Read more…]
Wow! Christmas is now behind us and we have 2015 just ahead of us. This is the perfect time to start planning how we will fit fitness into our lives in 2015. [Read more…]
It is almost time to start howling in 2013. All the humans make these lists of what they call resolutions for the new year, I never have understood that concept but this year I thought I would make a few of my own and share them with my blog community. It seems like the bipeds only abide by them for a short time so I am not worried if mine are a bit too difficult. I was able to come up with the following five:
- I will try not to knock Gramma over every time I see her (I only do it because I love her and am so excited to see her)
- I will try not to countersurf – this is a tall order since mom has such good stuff on the counter that she often leaves unattended
- I will try not to howl, bark and rip at the windowsill when my friend Fred the squirrel comes by to visit – he comes almost daily but I am still out of my fur as if it is the first visit every time
- I am going to try to let mom comb out my beard without such a fight – I simply don’t like the process but she says it has to be done
- I promise to try to be nicer to my cats, especially Sophie who is scared of me
Everyone howl in 2013 safely – dogs, remember no alcohol, it is poison for us dogs. I will be celebrating with chilled bottled water poured into my shiny silver water bowl or champagne glass.
Here’s to a howlin’ great 2013!

It seems to me that humans love to reminisce about the year and everything that happened right before the end of the year so I thought I would sniff over my calendars and see what happened in my GBGV life the past 12 months. Some things I had completely forgotten about, some were as fresh as if they happened yesterday.
Follow me on a quick walk down my 2012 trail to see what the high and low points were.
January and February were pretty uneventful. Mom and us dogs were rather depressed as it was a warm winter and we did not have much of any snow, it was brown, ugly and just plain sad! I missed the great winter we had in 2011!
March was a busy month. I had my photo audition for Target. I did not get the job but I got my portfolio which resulted in me getting some photo jobs later in the year, yay! I entered an online St. Patrick’s Day contest and won – I got a collar from Up Country Inc for winning my favorite collars! Lena came to stay with us for 2 weeks while her family went to Florida and right after she left, Buddy was over for 10 days or so. I think March was a pretty good month!
April was nothing to howl about. I managed to leave the Easter Bunny alone which pleased mom 🙂 In May mom had the nerve to leave us with her cousin Laura while she went on vacation for a week. Katie and I spent most of the week at the windows by the front door waiting for mom to come back. I did good this time, though, as I did not howl at night. Buddy came back the end of May for a long weekend.
Woof! Birthday season began in June with Katie turning 10. I baked her a great cake and we had a fun day for her.
In July, we celebrated the 4th of July, Buddy was back again for about 10 days and we celebrated mom’s birthday the end of the month. In August Buddy was back again for 10 days.
September started with Buddy spending Labor Day weekend with us and then the big event – I turned 6 and had a super fun birthday with great food, gifts and lots of loving! Towards the end of the month I finally got my call from Target and did my first modelling job – arrroooo!!!
October was fun as mom took us to the pumpkin patch, tons of great smells there, Buddy was at our place for a long weekend and then we had Halloween.
November was long as we were waiting for snow and for Thanksgiving. The beginning of December we finally got a nice snow storm which really kicked us into Christmas fever and now we are at the end of the year.
That was my year in a nutshell, not to bad! How was your year? Anything big happen?
Hi Everyone and Happy New Year! I am on my way to a New Year’s party – bring your own beverage – so I chose bottled water! Everyone should know that dogs should not drink alcohol even if they seem to like it – it is not good for dogs! I love a good party (actually, I prefer to be the life of the party) and am hoping for some good snack food and fireworks at midnight too! Katie is scared to death of fireworks but they don’t bother me a bit. I wish all my followers, readers, fellow pets and their humans a wonderful and successful 2012! Happy New Year and don’t drink and drive, especially if your pet is in the car with you as you endanger them as well!
