How far is the puppy planet again?

I am a Beauty! Woof!

Woof!
Here I am after a hard morning of playing at the puppy park; really hard as some of the big guys don’t give me much of a break. A “Golden” ran at me full steam and luckily my guardian “just happened” to direct him off my course with a little knee action…whew! Last time playing I had the wind knocked out of me and my left hind quarter was really hurting so much Tiffany had to carry me to the car; everyone came rushing over and boy did I like the attention though not the pain. My guardian is taking good care of me with two to three walks a day. I really like playing with my buds (see the pictures; Bentley is the little guy who thinks he is a big guy, Kona thinks he is king and his mask hides him when he does something he ought not to do! And, Hunter I love; he is getting old now and I just lick him up!) Sometimes, I find my Guardian crying and I think it is because of Elli passing on. In a sad way I am very grateful to Elli as I wouldn’t be in this loving home if she had not made space for me. Well, it looks like it may be time for another opportunity to “run with the big dogs!”
Come again for another woof!

Woof!
Now, I am going to jump around a little bit since we last left off with me telling you some about my history. Today is my birthday! Woof Woof and major Woof! It is also the birthday of my owner and the good stuff began with this morning. I am always petted and played with just about the minute my owner wakes up; sometimes I sleep on the bed (very comfy) and other times down stairs on my very comfy special doggie bed. My owner was in my very favorite place in the house; the kitchen! The aroma was teasing me…could it be….yes it was true…a birthday special cut from the butcher bone! Woof Woof Woof Woof! Unfortunately, I could not get it right away for our usual routine was about to take place my walk.

Our morning walk is usually to the park. The park is a great place for me to pick up my messages and make my comments. Most of the time mothers pushing babies in their carriages get in my way, although, I strutt my stuff right past and hear words of “what a good dog.” My owner likes this and agrees by introducing me “this is Elli and yes she is a wonderful pup.” I like hearing the word pup for today I am ten and no I don’t look it, just like my owner who will take away my bone if I tell you her age….woof! I get two to three walks a day and I have my own personal dog walker Carol. Tiffany (my owner and it is about time I introduce her, otherwise you may get tired of hearing owner over and over again.) found my dog walking service before we moved from Virginia to the Bay area. Carol really likes me a lot and when my owner, whoops, I mean Tiffany is not able to walk me, she calls Carol who comes over to take care of me.

I am a very lucky dog. And, did you know my breed, the Norwegian Elkhounds were originally bred to hunt large prey like Caribou or Elk?  We are trackers with such a keen sense of smell.  I over heard my owner telling a neighbor that I could find a piece of bread on Mount Everest. She said this after a very tasty walk for me. We were walking in the park when my nose got the better of me and into the bushes I jumped. I found my goal….a blueberry pie! Imagine someone making it so easy for me to have pie. Tiffany didn’t think so and she pulled on my lead and grabbed the pie in my mouth pulling it all over her. I don’t think she was too happy about having blueberry pie on her hands and arms…she said a few words I don’t think I ought to repeat!

Now, speaking of walks I hear my name being called and that means it’s time for our afternoon walk. The afternoon walk is much longer sometimes and a favorite route of ours is to walk down a very long tree lined lane. Tiffany likes this a lot as she likes looking at many of the “mansions” and I get to pick up more of messages from the day before. Like I said, time for my walk so woof for now!
