Hello everyone, it’s me, Makena, your favorite dog blogger!
I’ve had a pretty busy social schedule these past few months, so let’s get caught up! First up was meeting my new cousin, Winnifred. She was a little too wild for me, so I let my other cousin Reagan keep her busy while I watched from a safe distance.
I stayed safely behind the pet gates that are in place at Aunt Madge’s and Uncle Pudge’s house to keep their cats safe from the dogs. Given my petite figure, I can fit through the gates, but the dogs can’t. Winnie couldn’t figure this out!
When it was time for my 5:00 pm canned food time, my mom kept my plate in the dining room. The other dogs were not happy watching me eat. Yes, I can be a “big tease!”
My parents went to visit their friends Dave and Angie (with a surprise visit by Jeanine!), but they decided to leave me home. Usually I tag along as Angie always has good dog treats, but after the weekend with my cousins, they decided more “dog time” might overwhelm me. No one will ever break into their house, as they have their own triple alarm system! Angie did give my mom a special treat bag to take home for me, much to the dismay of her own dogs. Thanks Angie for the chicken treats. They were stinky and delicious!
After we left Wisconsin, we visited with Aunt LuAnn in Texas. There was no escaping her animal kingdom. Three dogs, two cats and a guinea pig! I enjoyed walking in the woods, at the appropriate social distance, with my cousins, and a friends dog.
I even stopped and posed for a photo, but the big dogs crowded me out (actually, I’m just hiding in the back on my new purple leash).
I was trying to hide from my cousins at Aunt LuAnn’s house, and ran into the closet to escape. Only to run into one of the cats, doing the same thing. The cat was not too happy to see me.
The other cat seemed to like me, and wanted to sniff my face, not my butt like the dogs do.
And speaking of butt sniffing, my aunt had a pet carrier that she thought I would like. All her dogs have outgrown it. My mom and I tried it out, and I liked it at first.
But it didn’t prevent the dogs from sniffing…sigh.
I really wasn’t sure what to do with the guinea pig. I just ducked down and hoped it didn’t see me.
We are back in Yuma, Arizona this winter. I’m enjoying the warm weather and sunshine. Occasionally strange people knock on our door and drop off packages. I always make sure to inspect each box, in case there is a treat or two inside!
After a two year absence, I am happy to see my Canadian friend, Buddy, back here in Yuma! My parents said we will stop and visit with him on the way to Alaska in May. Yay!
Well that gets you caught up with me! I hope everyone is doing well and staying healthy! Take care everyone!
