Squirrel Tracks!

The little rascals think they can hide from me now, do they?!

Sideshow Clifford

So, Mum and I were going to do this piece about our new paw cleaner mitt. We were getting organized and I was just about to introduce the Evripet Paw Cleaner that Mum picked up for us last week. It's almost that time of year when we're going to be coming in with snowy-muddy paws. I was pretty impressed with the package because it featured Golden Retrievers demonstrating the paw cleaner.

I just began my part, and was pointing out the paw cleaner when my littlest brother, Sideshow Clifford, decided he wanted to be a part of the production.
Needless to say, filming had to be postponed until we could clear the set.

Family Day

It's Friday. I love Fridays because Daddy! comes home of Fridays. Also, Fridays lead to Saturdays and Sundays, and that's when we go to the Tree Farm.

Isn't it funny that this trail of duckstruction leads directly to my littlest brother:

At the Tree Farm with Duke & Rufus

My Birthday was a fabulous day. We went to the Tree Farm with Duke, who brought his friend Rufus (a spaniel mix) and we ran and ran and ran. Duke's Dad remembered to bring some balls and a ball thrower (which my family forgot at home).
Duke and I like walking side by side with our Dads.
When we reached the big field we ran that way...
And we ran back this way...
I ran in the trees like a bunny rabbit...
And we all ran out of the trees...Of course I caught the ball...
It was all so much fun. The humans seemed to enjoy the walk too.

This is Duke. Clearly, he's a very handsome boy. I ♥ him.

My Birthday, Part I

There's nothing a girl could want more for her birthday than a new duck. Better yet, this is no ordinary duck; my new birthday duck has 16 squeakers! I am awed.

This morning Mum and Hannah decorated some Claire cupcakes to bring to my party at the Tree Farm this afternoon. They're for the humans, of course. Mum says there are special treats for the four legged ones, and some special treats for me and Duke. I can't wait!
My Claire cupcakes have fluffy blonde icing, chocolatey brown loveball eyes, dark chocolate almond noses, and cute little pink jellybean tongues. So cute, just like me.

Who turns TWO on Saturday?

It's my Birthday on Saturday and I'm trying to find the best way to drop some hints about my special day so that nobody forgets. I've made some birthday posters that I think should do the trick.

I'm sending an invitation to Duke and some other party pooches I know to join me and my brothers at the Tree Farm on Saturday to run around and chase balls all afternoon. I can't wait!
