He talked to me!

Hi friends.  Remember me telling you about the man who smiled for the first time when I visited him.  Well,  guess what?  He talked to me!   Hurray!!  I don't know what he said, but it doesn't matter.  He talked!!
There was another man in the room who kept asking Mom how old I was and how much I weighed.  She would tell him and then after a few minutes, he would ask again.  Guess he was trying to trick her up.  Anyway, he also asked Mom if I had any F- L -E -A -S.  I don't know how to spell, but Mom said I didn't.
Do you think it's something bad and he didn't want to hurt my feelings?  Should I worry about it?  He also wanted to know how I got along with C - A - T - S.  What the heck is that?  I get along with everyone!
I overheard my Mom & Dad talking last night.  They said I had a special gift.  They said that I was just what they always wanted and it was all because of my trainer.  Her name isValerie Paul and I like her.  She let's me kiss her and sit on her lap.  She scratches my ears and lets me play with Cody.  Cody is her special gift and he's my friend. 
I had a bad night a few nights ago.  There was this thunder storm and I got really scared.  I couldn't help myself and I have to pace and pant and try to hide.  Mom got up and let me lay on her lap until the storm was over.  She didn't get much sleep, but neither did I.  I hate being scared.  Are there things that you're scared of?  It's not fun.  Mom have me some pills, but they didn't help much.  I could still hear the thunder and see the lightning.  Mom need to find me some ear muffs and blindfold, but them I might bump into the wall.  I don't know what the answer is.  Do you?
I'll let you know how my week is going.  Sloppy kisses to all of you.

Just being lazy

Mom and Dad were gone this morning, so I spent my time laying on the couch.  They'll never know.
Anyway, on Wednesday I went to see my friends at the assisted living home.  They were all happy to see
me.  I gave one nice lady a big, sloppy wet kiss and she put her hands on both sides of her face and said
"Oh My!".  What do you think that meant?  I'm always willing to give kisses.  It's my favorite thing to do,
well, except maybe eat.  Yes, eating is absolutely my favorite thing, then kissing.  I'm glad my friend Cody
is feeling better.  He needs to come see me real soon.  I need the exercise.  It's hard keeping up with him.
I try, but it wears me out.  See you later, friends.  I think they're going to feed me now.  Well, it's about time!~

Keeping you up to date.

Tuesday was bath day.  I needed to get all prettied up for my visit to see my friends on Wednesday so Mom
took to me Pup N Suds in Mechanicsville.  They sure are nice people there.  Now as you now, I'm not a little guy so having a nice big tub is great for soaping up.  They even cut and file my nails so that I don't accidently scratch anyone. People seem to like it when I smell sweet.  I don't know why.  I think I smell just fine.  Anyway, we went to visit friends and they seems to have been looking forward to seeing me.  It's not hard, you know.  All you have to do is wag your tail and they think you're real cute. There was one man who
seemed to be so sad.  He was sitting in a wheel chair just looking down so I walked up and put my head in his lap.  He smiled at me.  Then he took my head in his big hands and laughed right out loud.  The nurse said
that it was the first time she had seem him smile since he had been there.  We just looked into each other's eyes and we made a connection.  Maybe next time he'll talk to me.  I'll work on that and let you know if it happens.  My Dad's sister came to visit this week and brought me a toy mouse.  It doesn't squeek!  Guess she didn't know any better.  I miss my friend Cody and wish he would come to visit me.  Cody is a labradoodle which makes him part like me and part leapster.  He can really jump high.  It's easier for me to go under something.  Maybe I'll teach him how to do that.  It's takes a lot less energy.
That's all for now.  Sloppy kisses to everyone from CJ
