Hello everyone! Your favorite dog blogger is back! And Happy (belated) New Year!! My parents need to leave the computer open and the wifi on while they are busy at work, so I can keep my peeps updated more often! For those new to the blog, I’m a little Jack Russell Terrier that likes to take over the blog once in a while, and post about my life on the road.
Normally my parents do their work camping thing (which pays for my toys and treats) from mid-May to the end of December. I’m not sure that I like this idea of them working all the way through mid-April this year. Usually I get to spend the first four months of the year being the center of attention. Now they are off working 3 days a week, and I’m home alone listening to the radio. I guess it’s better than being back in Wisconsin, where it’s 22 below, and that’s just the air temperature! My mom’s sister Margie sent her this picture this morning. That is just wrong! I feel bad for my cousins, Rudy and Reagan. They are German Shorthair Pointers, so they have even less hair than I do! I would need to use a litter box, because there’s no way I’m going outdoors to pee in that temperature!
I did get to go with my parents to San Diego (thanks Gary and Julia for booking a dog-friendly house so I could come along!). I’ve visited the Atlantic Ocean several times in Florida, and was excited to get my paws wet in the Pacific Ocean! I’m officially a coast-to-coast traveler now!
My mom and I sat down for our regular photo with my cousin Simon. That tiny baby has grown into a handsome young boy.
Simon has also grown into the perfect height for getting snacks! I’ve taught him well.
I was super excited when my grandparents came to visit me here in Yuma! They have been very busy with golfing, line dancing, playing cards and participating in many other activities in the park. When they came over, gramps was a little pooped out, and grandma was more interested in her iPad. I feel left out….
Longtime readers may recall that grandpa and I share the same birthday, March 20. They will not be here in March, so we decided to have an early birthday celebration, with gramps turning 82, and I will be 12! The cake was delicious!
Looking at the photo with 2 candles, has caused me to reflect on the 10 years that have passed since the last time I had 2 candles on a cake.
I now have some gray behind the ears, but I think I still look great for my age! Back then, we were living in a house, and I enjoyed playing with the neighbor kids, Adam, Faith, Josh and Ben. They would play football with me, which I enjoyed. But I really enjoy living in a fifth wheel. The smaller space suits me better, and I get to meet people from all over the country, and discover new spots to sniff and pee. Life is good!

Thanks Dick and Cheryl! Miss seeing you in Florida, but we are enjoying the lack of humidity in Arizona.
We have great memories of living next door to you and throwing the football to you when you lived in the house! Thanks for mentioning us in your blog. You are lucky not to be in Muskego today with the wind chills between -40 to -50 degrees the past 2 days! We miss you!
Adam, Faith, Josh & Ben
