I’m back… :)

Hello everyone, I thought I would take over the blog again.

Things have been going well for me.  There is a nice couple, Jim and Gayle, that let me out when my parents are working.  It’s not as nice as my walks with Grandpa Stu, but it will do for now.

My parents signed up for voluntary overtime this week.  I’m not sure why, something about making money so we don’t have to live where it snows.  While I don’t mind the snow, I would rather be out playing on the grass, in warmer weather.  One year we were playing in the snow, it was so deep my football landed in the snow bank and we couldn’t find it.  It was a crisis of epic proportions.  We had to wait until the snow melted before we found the ball again.

I did try to make a new friend recently.  I woke my mom up at 3:00 am to go outside.  She was mumbling, something about it being 3 am, and she had to get up for work at 5 am.  She mumbles a lot when she is sleepy.  I was outside and noticed something really cute by the RV next to us, and started to go over there.  My mom was mumbling that the lady didn’t have any pets, so she made me stay while she went to see what was under the camper.

Next thing I know, she is picking me up and running back into our camper, mumbling ‘that’s a skunk, that’s a skunk’!  Well, I don’t know what a skunk is, but it sure looked really cute and friendly.  I guess another dog in the park tried to make friends with the skunk, and ended up getting 3 baths in one day.

It’s getting dark earlier, so my parents are not playing football with me as much outside.  But I taught them a lesson.  If I can’t do this:

Then I do this:

So now they are making an effort to get me outside more.  They don’t want to keep buying me new toys, which I promptly shred.

After we leave here, we will work our way down to Florida.  My mom previously mentioned they will stay in Cedar Key for January.  Now they tell me we will be in Orange City for February.  I guess it is somewhere near where a giant mouse lives.  They haven’t told me where we will be for the rest of the year yet.  I’ll keep you posted.
