FBSam, or should I call him FFBSam (Former Foster Brudder Sam) got a dop tid today. I still don't know what a dop tid is, but most of my foster brudders and sisters end up with them. maybe they're some kind of special fizbee?

Today I went to grandma's house! the whole car was packed up with all the pups and we drove for a little while to maine. i played some ball in the driveway with dad, because the snow was very tall and crusty and i couldn't walk on it without falling through. so i did zooming slides on the icy driveway, which was fun. then another car i never saw before came and a couple went into the house to meet FFBSam. They came out a little while later with Sam and he jumped into a brand new soft crate like mine in their car and they drove off! Daddy said he is going to live on 25 acres in maine. Sounds great to me, especially if he's got one of those 'dop tid' fizbees up there!

Here's FFBSam with his new family!

contortionist and dogz in the way!!

Today I was outside with everybody (and a new special guest!) and daddy wanted to get some pictures of Speck a-runnin and a-catchin the ball. But what he got was a whole lot of Speck a-twistin for the ball. He's not nearly as practiced at this stuff as me.

Here's how he made out...

The ball always ends up in his mouth, but he sure makes it look ugly sometimes.

notice how he's almost always off-frame? it's because he runs too darn fast at balls that aren't kicked/thrown very fast...

you'll notice a theme of 'in-the-way' dogs today. i guess we needz a bigger yard!!

See dummy? if you didn't run so fast, you wouldn't have to twist back around for the ball!

Look OUT Sam!

gotta give it to Speck though... he can turn on a dime... (agility dog!)

and he sure can zoom!

Outta my way FBSAM!

oh.. i think he's got one lined up!

aha! (finally!)

This is Auntie Abby. Abby is daddy's mommy's dog, and is staying with us for a week. She's a yellow lab / golden retriever mix. Daddy said he got her way back in 1997 as a puppy.

She's almost 12 but she can still romp!

And certainly can get in the way! Thankz for ruinin' a great shot of me jumpin!

Darnit Sam!

More snow & fizbee failz!

i must be out of practice with fizbee. because i was told i had to "take it easy" and "let my toofs heal", i didn't get to play fizbee for a few days.

so when i got to go out today in the new snow (a whole new foot of very light and fluffys!), it wasn't exactly pretty.

That's Foster Brudder Sam laffin at me!

then when i tried to jump for it, i went right out the top of the frame!

hey that's my bum! how'd that get in here??

I'm normally much more graceful than this, you know...

(hiding my face from embarrassment)

finally i getz it!

You should adopt Speck!

Real Brudder Sam looking like a showdog beegle (except he's a mutt)

"pleez don't be mad at me... i can haz dis fizbee?" -FBSam

"see how cute i is?" (up for adoption soon!)

Dis Pip. he got scared at some falling snow today and was actually barking hahaha! Pip never barks, except when he's really freaked out, or sometimes in his crate when there are new dogs around.

OW! My Toofs!

yesterday i went to the dentist :(

i had two root canals on my canine toofs because they're all worn down. I'm only 2 so let that be a lesson to all you ball-lovin freaks out there... don't use regular tennis balls when you're a puppy!

and i also had a regular toof cleanin too! i eat raw food so my toofs are pretty clean, but since they were in there, they figured they'd floss and brush and make me all pearly white!

back home... with pix!

phew, that was a hectic few days. first, daddy telled me that we were going to the farm. he telled me this on thursday nite. i said to him "we can goez now?", and he said "no, we're going tomorrow"... so i opened my eyez really big, and says "WE CAN GOEZ TO THE FARM NOW??!" and he laughed at me and said "No, Goose, we're going tomorrow!".. so I grabbed a ball, and dropped in onto his lap and sayz "here's a ball, we can goez now?"... but it didn't work! so i had to wait a whole day to go! it was vary unfair!!

then on friday daddy got to the farm very late because he had to work and then drive all the way there from the eastest place in massachoochoos. the farm is all the way westest in massachoochoos til you cross into new york, then it's in the mountains there. all i know is when the long part of the highway is over, there's about 20 more minutes, then i can smells all the cowses and sheepses, so i wakez up reddy to GO!

usually when we go to the farm, it's not winter time, so we camp out. uncle craig and auntie kathy let us stay in their camper, which is always fun. one time this summer, real brudder samwise fell out of the camper at night and went snuffin around other campers and tents scaring people!! then he came back whining at the camper door like "i felled out and didn't find any food anywhere within 300 meters of dis place, i can comez inside again?"

but this time it was winter so we stayed upstairs in the guest room. i like it up there because it's away from all of uncle and auntie's dogs. they haz 10 of their own (including my sister flirt and uncle bodie!) and 2 NEBCR fosters... it was hectic, so when i was done outside playing with everybody, i liked to go run upstairs and into my crate. the best part of the farm is that i usually get to go swimming in the pond and run like crazy (dad can really throw far with the chuckit!). this time it was mostly romping in the new 6" of snow and trying to make daddy throw me the ball while he was trying to keep all the other dogs occupied. but tennis balls don't do too well in the snow... and as it was, we had already lost Foster Brudder Sam's yellow fizbee and the backup purple fizbee, so daddy thankfully put away my #1 most favoritest bloo fizbee so we wouldn't lose that too!

now onto the pictures from this weekend...

OH WAIT! i forgotted to mention that we have a new, temporary foster dog in the house! his name is Tucker and he's only a puppy. he's 7 months old, and already weighs 50 pounds! he's very furry and has lots of funny spots and colors. he is going to go live with dublin and limerick because their foster brudder Finnegan is being adopted this weekend! So he's just here for a few days...

here's temporary foster brudder Tuck:

Ok pictures, here goes:

i seem to have found an ancient tennis ball relic from the Penn era.

(that thing never came out! then it got snowed on and won't be seen again til spring!)

wtf pip

This is pistol pete. Haz you seen pistol pete? cuz he's awesome.

RBSam thinks he has the chair to himself, but he didn't realize that the two-clawed sloth, pistol pete (National DOCNA Agility Champ, btw) was ready to pounce...

ok, not much of a pounce... they slept together on this chair for a while.

Uncle Bodie doing his best at pissing Keegan right the hell off. For any of you out there in intarnetz land who might look at this and say "OMG AGGRESSIVE", you should come to the farm sometime and learn about doggie body language. These guys (and Tristan) antagonize eachother all the time, and it sounds like WWIII, but there's never any contact and it's all posturing and trash talk. Scares the newbies to be sure though :) --- me? i don't even hesitate to steal a toy right out from in front of Tristan or Keegan anymore!

Disney. Personally responsible for the unknown whereabouts of two of MY FIZBEES! hopefully they'll surface in the spring.
