The beach!

This Hawaii stuff is not half bad. We went to the beach after Stephen finished teaching. He has three more classes and I will be glad when he is done. Do you know how hard it is to stay quiet for three hours when you are ten months old?

I played with a coconut chew toy. They are great! Stephen was singing that I'm a beach boy and I've got my toy, or something like that song.

And then later, the moon came up. Yogi is a good boy.

Dobi at the dog park

Saturday when we went to the dog park there were all these little kids. I saw a blue ribbon on the ground and ate it, maybe it was a birthday party. Did you know it is now legal to sing happy birthday? Anyway, I met Dobi and we stayed away from the kids. They are dangerous, they sit on you and poke your eyes and pat the top of your head. I am not afraid of them, but given my druthers, I ignore little kids.

Since they stayed at one end of the park, we went to the other side and I met Dobie. He is a 3 yr old Doberman Pincher. We romped for a while off lead, I like him.

Nice day at the park, met Gunther

No rain, nice day, we went to the dog park. I got to meet Gunther and we romped. He can really howl! Stephen just started singing the Late Night Driving Song from the Regal Beagle Band, red lights and green lights.

PeeMail from Runtie

Hey Yogi, it's us, Mist and Runtie winding down after a long day. Here is the formula, Two collies + Two kong balls = Happy dogs!

I hate rain, it is so wet. But today it snowed a little bit. It was fun to play with, much better than rain. Then Stephen and Kathy went off to church and left me in my crate. When they back, it was blue sky and we went to the dog park. I got to play with Kasi again. She is also from Eastern Washington so she doesn't rain either.  Stephen has been cooking. They are bringing the soup for small group. I got to taste a lot of things because I stayed on my mat outside of the kitchen.

Thank you for your service veterans, Sonny, Lake Tapps Luxury Pet Sitting

Today is veterans day. Kathy  Stephen is going to wear his leather flight jacket chew toy to walk me around in Sumner a bit later. He wants me to practice not jumping up when I meet people. I know it is wrong to jump, but I get so excited, I just have to leap and bound.

I hate the rain. Today was a nice day. We went to the dog park and I got to be off lead some of the time. I met a ten year old golden named Sonny. He is cool, but not so much into puppy love.

Then I met Suzi Little from Lake Tapps Luxury Pet Sitting. She seems nice, I couldn't get a picture of her cool car, Stephen was using the iBone.

Titus and his Pack Mom

I got to meet Titus yesterday. He just arrived at his forever home. I had to stay on lead because he is little.

Kasy and Jim Grasley's class

We were out walking at the dog park between the rains. I was off lead. And I ran away, it wasn't my fault, she was such a gorgeous young thing. I think I heard Stephen call my name. We ran and scampered, sniffed and licked. But then Kathy put me back on lead. I had failed to recall. Bummer.

The good news is that it is Saturday, that means we get to go to class and I can see all my friends.

A Fine Friday Afternoon

I don't like the rain and it is been raining a lot, but today we had some blue sky and sunshine and I convinced Stephen and Kathy to go to Banker's Spit. It is now listed as a dog park so I got to go off lead. I ran and pranced and waded in Lake Tapps.

Then we went to downtown Sumner and walked around and I practiced walking on loose lead. As we passed Persnickety's Awesomeness Emporium I smelled it. An antler. I have learned if I look at something intently enough Stephen usually gets what I want. They are dog friendly, but it looked like a lot of their stuff might break so Stephen went in and got me an antler.

Then we had a lot of fun walking around, Stephen, Kathy, antler and me.

I jumped into the FJ Cruiser all by myself for the first time. Stephen threw a dog biscuit and I went for it. Kathy congratulated me.

On the way home we stopped at the dog park one more time. Well, I think I will stop here I am a bit tuckered out.

Class was a bit crazy, maybe because it was Halloween?

Saturday, to be truthful, was a bit boring. Stephen spent the day outside with the pressure washer. The highlight of the day was my Intermediate dog class. I liked it. We did "Go to your mat", which we do all the time anyway, but hey, the treats were good. Then we all sat in a circle and Jim talked to us.

What was different than normal, was the barking and growling. But I did get to play with Brutus some. Missed a chance to play with Red, he was on the other side of the room.
