Hello everyone, it’s me again! I decided to steal my mom’s blog again. I was going to title it “Happy 8th Birthday”, but thought the above title was more attention grabbing. And I like it when humans, not other dogs, pay a lot of attention to me!
My parents have been very busy the last couple weeks with Dan’s brothers family in town visiting. Unlike last year, I have not been able to partake in all the social activities. My parents have been visiting a lot with my grandparents (Dan’s mom and dad). They have been renting the same condo in New Smyrna Beach for over 15 years. The condo does permit dogs, and the owner of the condo told them I was welcome to visit as well. Last year I made many visits, and had also made several more this year. I really enjoy going for walks with my grandparents.
But one day, no sooner than after I finished giving smooches to my grandparents, the telephone rang, and it was the manager of the rental association asking if they had a dog in the unit. To make a long story short, a power struggle ensued between the manager of the rental company, and the owner, and I am no longer allowed to visit, because the owner uses the rental company to handle everything. The rental agency does not permit dogs. Sigh….my grandparents are very sad about this. And I’m sad when I get left behind….
Apparently I missed out on a riveting shuffleboard tournament. I could have taught everyone a thing or two about chasing around a puck!
But, this just means everyone has to come down and visit me at my home! It’s not easy having seven people come over for a visit, because we live in a small space.
The floor is always a good spot for me and my cousins to watch the Badgers play basketball!
The weather has been nice, so we could sit outside, which helps. And, they can play with me in the campgrounds dog park!
Everyone did come down and celebrate my birthday with me, and I even had presents to open. I love presents!!!
Sometimes the bag keeps moving all over, but I am persistent!
Success!! Thanks for the new toy Grandma and Grandpa!
I am not sure what is going on next. My parents spent a lot of time working on taxes, so I’m sure they will be talking about that in an upcoming blog. I just heard them use the word “refund”, which in dog language means “buy more toys and treats please!!”
And finally, even though I have just turned eight, I am still the youngest in our family. In dog years, based on my size, I am only 48 years old!!
Take care everybody!
