Hello everyone, it’s your favorite dog blogger, Makena! I thought it was time for an update on my blog, as quite a bit has been happening for me, both good and bad. Let’s just get the bad stuff out of the way first…
OUR NEW HOME
What in the world were my parents thinking when they sold my house?? I was NOT consulted on this purchase of what amounts to a human sized dog house. I have gone from 40 feet of floor space, to 11 feet. I knew something was going on, because my parents kept packing up their stuff, and moving it out. But then I noticed they were packing up all my toys, food and treats, and it was removed from the RV as well. At that point, I became very nervous about what was happening. That night, which turned out to be the last night in our home, I refused to sleep with my parents. They would put me in bed, and I jumped off, and sat by the door. They again put me in bed, and I jumped off and went by the door. Finally they gave up, and put a blanket down by the door. That’s where I spent the night. There was no way I was going to let my parents leave, without taking me along. So I slept all night in front of the door.
The one thing I do like about the camper, is the booth dinette. However, I have to stand on my paws to see the computer, as the table sits up higher than the dining table in our fifth wheel. As you can see, it’s not as comfortable for blogging. But I will still keep my peeps informed!
The nice part about the booth dinette is I can sit on top and look out the window. I like that a lot. I can get some sunshine, fresh air, and see what is going on outside.
But there is barely enough room for my dog bed, blanket and food dish on the floor. And when they need to get something out of the refrigerator, or cook on the stove, I get moved around. And there’s not much space to run around indoors to play. I’m slowly adapting to my new digs. They promised me I would have a bigger house in a year or so.
MY BIRTHDAY PARTY!
So on to the good news. I just turned 13 years old, so my parents decided to have a birthday party for me. They tried to make sure that everyone practiced good social distancing during the party. Here I am demonstrating how to keep an appropriate social distance, which is something I have spent my whole life doing.
My friends Duffy and Finnegan attended my party, and they were busy trying to find the feral cats that hang out behind this park model.
Si also attended, but he didn’t get the memo on proper social distancing! I had to keep my tail down…it’s kinda like a face mask for my butt!
Missing from my party was my Grandpa Stu. We share the same date of birth, only 70 years apart. Also missing was Buddy, my next door neighbor for the past two winters. His parents had to leave early to get back to Canada. I like Buddy, because he lets me share his recliner with him. His mom gave us some treats before they left to celebrate my birthday.
This past Christmas, I was again able to spend a few days with my dad’s family for Christmas. Gary and Julia again rented a pet friendly house, in Tempe. I was able to meet up with my cousin Simon, who just keeps getting bigger and bigger. He just turned three years old. We did our customary picture, but had a new addition this year. Simon is now a “big brother” to Amira, born in September.
Currently, I have been spending a lot of time hanging out at Dave and Marilyn’s house in Yuma. My parents have been helping them with some outdoor projects. I like having a bigger house to hang out in, especially when I can just relax in the sunshine.
Stay safe everyone! Take care and thanks for following along.
