Yes yes yes-- It's my barkday today....I'm a whole 3 years old--which is 21 in dog years-- so in honor of this--- my furless sister has gotten in her birthday suit!! Let's just hope we dont look back on this when she is 21 and we find out she is posting naked pics of herself because of this post, lol.

It has been pretty busy around here--getting ready for xmas and all! We even took pics last night for xmas cards-- here's a preview : ) As you can tell-- I was thrilled.

Newest pics

I want to apologize for my posts not being very consistent-- apparently my computer access has been limited because my mom is still on a very critical project-- i hear it called 'heartburn', 'heartattack' and 'there-is-light-at-the-end-of-the-tunnel- I'm not quite sure what she is working on, but she has been working on it for almost a year and half.

Anyway--my photographer has been busy taking random pics .... almost none of them are of me...go figure. However, i still have the video to post from when Lucy came to visit!
video

In other news- my fur sister Munch went to live with my dad's friend Michael in Boston. Here is a pic of her and Six on her last day living with us. My mom got her 8 years ago but was really glad to let her have a new family.


Not much else to report--i am usually so excited for Halloween, but my mom has NO decorations up and i havent had to try on any costumes--she better dress me up!!! My favorite was my bee costume --it was the bestest! Anyways, hopefully there will be more to report tomorrow : )

Isn't she jus thte smallest thing you have ever seen? she is only 2lbs-- thats probably as big as one of Nanook or Pooka's poops! I have some video too..that i will post soon.

Hi there, who there!

So its almost been a month since I have posted-- you can thank my mom-- she's been too busy with work and the baby...go figure-- she better start carving out some time to transcribe for me--grrrrr! There has been lots of happenings around here. We have had 2 more family additions..i know--- just when you thought we couldnt handle anymore-- my other grandparents get a new pups-- her name is lucy-- she is part Chihuahua and part poodle. She is only 1.5 lbs!!!! And she will be here this week!! So i will definitely post pics of her. Then last night my Uncle Ted and his wife Jill had a baby girl-- Elizabeth Kay...weighing in at 6 lbs. 1 oz

In keeping with baby news---my sister Sloane is now a smiling master and has discovered tv! My mom says she can get some house work done finally. Apparently Baby Einstein is our new 'Best Friend' -- whatever that means! Here 's a picture of my mom and sister at a Cyclo Cross event last week where they got to watch Lance Armstrong race!
You know, I'm actually starting to get very jelly-fish (he he...i love when Ruby says that) over all the places my parents bring my sister to instead of me...i think i may have to start up a doggie petition-- and force them to bring me places.

Now I bet you are wondering why I have a blog-- when there aren't even any pictures of me in this post!!!! Again, you can blame that on the baby. Seems the camera only 'works' on the baby--i smell a conspiracy theory (among other 'things' i must say)!!

Another new family member!

Well---my grandparents were lonely--and since I am not close enough to shower them with lots of kisses and my bernard charm---they got a puppy. So i guess this would make him my uncle-- uncle winston! Isn't he cool! I can't wait to meet him.

Rug Tug

My mom has tried several times to get a small video of a little game Six and I play-- but whenever we hear the camera turn on-- we stop. This isn't the best example..but it's all she got.

Enjoy-- bernard

My new little sister is here!!!

Bernards mom here---


Well-- it has been very busy week and a half.
  • I went into the hospital last thursday 6/26 and was allowed to leave on Tuesday..

  • Bernard's new sister--Sloane was born last Friday morning 6/27

I am still trying to recover from an emergency c-section. Sloane was allowed to and come home on Wednesday after almost a week in a level 3 and 2 NICU--(criteria was she needed maintain her body temp and all EKG tests and bloodwork were good). The grandparents have also left-- so this is our first day without any help!!

Bernard is doing awesome with the new baby. He makes sure to check on her when she's crying and sniffs her a lot.


Here are the vitals for Sloane:

7lbs 2 oz ; 18 inches born 6:58 am

Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad!!!!



Just a small post to tell my parents Happy Anniversary--and I thought I would share their present with everyone. I cant wait til the yard is done and this is used all the time!!!!
Hopefully lots of foodie tidbits will fall and I can "sample" the goods : )
As you can see I am always the helper even if it is as small as making sure dad is reading directions.

Well- i continue to be on baby watch, but nothing happening...I wonder if mom is lying?

A 'room ' with a view...

With everything lately being baby this and baby that... i thought i would finally show everyone my view from the back of our new house (Of course my mom couldn't get perfect pic of me AND the skyline...so we have a good one of me gazing and a good one of the las vegas strip).
Now that it is sooooo hot during the day-- I hang out on the upstairs balcony in the evenings. Sometimes I even go out there in the middle of the night and play with Six-- but my mom/dad get angry... i like to keep them on their toes. I also want to make sure they don't get too much sleep...they should consider it a training exercise.

One of these days I will get to posting more 'hang out' spots in the house---but somebody is taking forever to get the house put together.. i guess there are bigger priorities (Bernard's mom: yes, like work and getting your sisters room together)...i am sure if i could hold a paint brush things would happen a lot faster, even with all my napping.
Maybe I can take some classes on painting techniques for dogs?
Now that i think about it..maybe I will get some pics of my 'walk' to the mailbox,lol. That might just be a bit easier.

Baby room pics!!!

I promised some baby room pics-- and here they are!!! View looking into the room

Just the crib (you cant tell but on the wall are flowers, done as a 3D relief--here is a pic without them painted)


Here looking to the right (there is also a white rocker you cant see in front of the window)

and to the left...

So all that is left is a rug and a different light on the ceiling (mom wants a chandelier and dad says the light thats there is fine)--but we all know a chandelier will be going up.

Chelada anyone?

I thought i would post a pic of what the 'breaks from all the work' are like in my house. Tasty huh?!!?!?! We are finally done with the baby's room--hopefully i can show you tomorrow---but i warn you--it's bright. My grandparents left oday-- so it's very quite. I can't wait till they come back...30 days and counting-- unless the baby gets here early.

Stroller ride anyone?

Here's a little taste of some more test drives for my soon-to-be-sister's stuff. This was taken a couple of weeks ago. Isn't it the coolest stroller? I know--we look cool too! This weekend I supervised some room decorating--crown moulding and paint touch up. (My mom wants me to tell you to ignore the half painted walls in the background.) My grandparents are here, helping out with all the house projects. They are super smart and good with those kind of things : ) I would repay them in doggie treats--- but I dont think that humans like those.

Happy Memorial Day!

PSA- Toxic products for Doggs

So no sooner do i start posting again when, on Saturday, I have an 'Emergency'. That emergency would be due to eating a TYLENOL. Please be warned, that although they look like candy and may taste good-- they are bad for us doggs. Here is pic for those who are unfamiliar with 'Rapid Release Tylenol'

The day started nicely, I was hanging out with my dad in our 'man cave' ( ie. bike room, casita) when something tasty fell out from his bike stuff. Before my dad knew it...it was swallowed, eaten, gone-- and he rushed me into the house.

My mom looked it up on the 'net-- and sure enough i would be back in the Vet ER 2 times in 2 months (will blog about the chocolate incident later).

Time line of events at vet:


8:00am- arrival
8:30- induced vomiting
8:31- no pill : (
8:35- blood work, IV hook up, misc
12:00pm- Blood results back- elevated toxins in my liver : (

The next 11 hours are more tests and medicine to flush the toxins out..and a visit from my parents-- who bring my favorite stuffie-long dog.

Late Late that night-- or early morning--i was able to go home-- see



I had my follow up on Tuesday and I am good now!! I would like to thank my parents for taking money out of the 'back yard fund so we dont have dirt' to make me better. Honestly-- peeing on rocks is fine--atleast for now...I will let you know if i change my mind and demand grass and plants to aim for.

Checking in...

I thought i would check in, as it has been a long time. A lot has happened since my parents moved me to Vegas. Please see exhibit A.


If that is not proof enough, i present Exhibit B

Yes, can you believe it--it's almost here--- a sister, not a furry one either ( atleast thats what I am told). so i have been very busy testing out all of her new stuff. I show you exhibit C

I know--it's girlie--but i wanted to make sure it could hold 20 lbs. I can verify that it does!!


I am going to try really really hard to play catch up on blogs and get back into doing posts. I know my dry spell was supppppeeeerrrr long.

Ok, so maybe I lied......

I thought I was coming out of hibernation...but little did i know my parents had other plans for me. Seems right about the same time-- boxes started appearing in the house. These were not boxes like from UPS that had stuff in them that mom bought either.. these were big boxes, that i now know are to put stuff in. I am now officially writing to you from Las Vegas!!!! Can you believe it!!! There are some pros and cons to this whole moving thing though, some of which I will elaborate on here.

1st off-- my mom is a nutjob during a move-- literally!! She was freaking out, screaming at escrow people for loosing our money, and the loan people for being incompetent.

2nd-- after 2 days of driving my mom stinked. I dont think i saw her change clothes for like 4 days ( note from mom: We had planned on driving straight thru 1 day..so i didn't pack any clothes. So i had to take showers and then dress in the same clothes..it was horrible) 3rd- we no longer have a backyard with grass and plants and stuff--its all dirt, and I hear will be that way for awhile.

Good things are I love my new house-- I never knew how much fun stairs were!!!! I LOVE them (video to be posted ina few days). And 2, my my mom is home all the time now, since she is working from home. So I am not in my crate all day long. Instead, I get to sit on my moms chair, slowly squeezing her off, he he! Here's a pic of the house



We haven't found a frenchie group here and my parents still havent found a doggie park..but it is SOOO cold here-- i wouldn't last 2 seconds outside anyway. My neighbors have 2 small dogs that hopefully I will get to meet soon..as we have discussions from our yards that are fantastic.



Well I know I have lots to catch up on..I promise I will catch up on all your blogs!!! I hope everyone had a great holiday and cool new year!!!
