I've Been a Good Girl

Guess what? Another gift came in the mail for me! I guess my behavior has been exceptional this year!

This gift came from a very handsome Golden named Farley. In the envelope I found treats:

And a snowman headband. I will sit long enough for a picture but don't expect me to keep these things on during my daily routine (sleeping, eating, sleeping, etc).
Thanks so much Farley and family! I just love getting gifts in the mail. I hope your family has a wonderful holiday!

That Time of Year!

Well, it's that time of year again. Time to put things that belong outdoors, indoors:
Mom has also been talking a lot about Santa Paws. Since I know I've been an angel this year, I believe I will be showered with an abundance of gifts. In the spirit of the season, today I received a package, but it wasnt from Santa. It was from Augie & Ti.
They even included a dashing photo of themselves wishing me a Merry Christmas.
I received a gift that, as a Golden, I feel you can never have too many of:
Thanks for the new stuffie boys! Merry Christmas to you!

Happy Thanksgiving!

It's that time of year when I reflect on all the things for which I am thankful.
My humans.... (in particular, Dad)
My stuffies and all those who bough them for me
And many other things I have in my life. I am such a fortunate Golden! Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Halloween!

I would like to take a moment to wish everyoe a Happy Halloween! As you can see, Mom won the battle of me wearing the clown costume she bought 6 years ago.
I think my sober expression shows how I feel about it.... sigh...

Itty Bitty

The other day Mom put me in my crate jail. This usually means someone special is coming over. I was right! This itty bitty human came to see me. When I held really still, she stuck her arm in and I got a quick lick of her teenie tiny hand. I really think we could be fast friends if Mom would let me out of my cage!

I've decided to try my paw at modeling. I made Mom take my picture the other day. This is the first head shot I plan to add to my portfolio. What do you think?

Just Being Myself

Some of you may be wondering what happened to me. Well, I'm still here, being myself. Mom felt guilty about not blogging so I made her play ball in the yard and she snapped a few photos of my beautiful self. I love when my humans feel guilty!

Friday, September 2, 2011


My mom came home with some disturbing news the other day. She said her friend at work rescued a dog in the spring. They quickly fell in love with the pooch but found out later she needed heart worm treatment. Just when they were ready to schedule treatment, they discovered a crisis! There is currently a shortage for the treatment of heart worms. So I am sitting here thinking of what I can do to help Charlee...
Charlee is kinda like me...She knows how to use the sad eyes to get what she wants:
Mom decided to post this so that other canine lovers can be aware that there is a shortage. We will stay on top of this situation and post later what we can do to help other sick puppies. In the meantime, we are waiting and hoping that very soon Charlee will be treated.

I guess summer is over because I have been abandonded again. Yep, that's right. My mom went back to work. I tried my hardest to get her to stay. Some of you may be wondering what I did to try and convince her that staying home with me is way more fun than teaching kids. Well, I started out very subtle. I gave her my best sad face:

When that didn't work, I left her a note so she would know exactly what I was thinking.

Finally I had to play hard ball. I took her keys and put them in my best hiding spot!

Can you believe she found them? She has been back to work for a week now. I'm very sad and let her know it by following her around when she's home. I hope she gets a day off soon!

Miniature Humans

The other day these miniature humans came to visit me. There were four of them. I found I like the littlest one the best. I made sure I was never too far away from her. I followed her everywhere and the best part is when she saw me, she would always pet me.

Mom explained to me these miniature humans were my human cousins. They came to stay with us for a couple days. I really think they came to just see me because they seemed to have a great time when I was around. The thing about these miniature humans is they have a lot of energy. When I did everything they did, I ended up getting tired.

Here I am sleeping with my eyes open. It looks like I will need some time to recooperate from their visit.

They're Home!

My humans are finally home. After SIX days without them, alas they are back. I think there was mutual happiness for seeing each other upon their arrival. Where did they go?
Something about a private beach with their own bartender. Sounds to me like a great place for a Golden...sigh
I even caught a nap with Dad after he came home.
Special thanks to Grandma Debi for taking good care of me all week. I had so much fun with you!

Not Again....

The other day I was sleeping in the hallway when I peeked in my humans bedroom. I was absolutely appalled at what I saw! That's right! The big red suitcase....again! Mom was putting her things in the suitcase. I was hopeful that maybe she was going away by herself leaving me with my most fun human, Dad.

You can imagine my thorough disappointment when Dad pulled out a suitcase and started packing his things too. I just don't understand why I can't go with them!

I Don't Think So!

Every now and then Dad wrestles me to the floor and comes at me with clippers. What can I say? I'd rather do my own pedicure.

My Trick!

Look what I can do...
What tricks can you do?

Happy Father's Day to all the fun Golden dads out there. Mine is the best!

Embarrassing Photo Friday

I guess it's a good thing my bed is close to the ground. Hrrmph!

Sunday, June 12, 2011


Well I am finally feeling better, so my humans decided to take me to the Farmer's Market. It is a sure sign that summer is here.
There were all kinds of fresh veggies and flowers.
I think summer is off to a better start. I would also like to take a minute and with my two boyfriends, Augie and Ti, a HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Those handsome fellas are surely celebrating this weekend. Their mom throws the best birthday parties.

Bad Start

Well, I've really had a rough start to the summer. First, I was grounded then punished with a bath. Shortly after my bath, I broke out in bumps all over my face. Those bumps itched a LOT and I just couldn't help myself. Yesterday morning I woke up and Mom said I looked like a Pit Bull (whatever that is). My face was very swollen and inflammed.A trip to the Vet, two shots and a bottle of pills later, I was diagnosed with hot spots. You can see my face is a little swollen. Dad was trying to keep me from scratching. I really hope my summer starts getting better soon....hrrmph!

My Sentence

As you may remember in my last blog, I was grounded for visiting my neighbors. You may be asking, what was your punishment? Well....

Yep! That's right! Not only did my humans ground me, but they told me I smelled so I had to get a bath. I just couldn't believe it! Hopefully my luck will change soon.

Monday, May 23, 2011


Well, it's not something I'm proud of, but yes, I'm grounded. I feel as though this is a little extreme. Mom said I couldn't have my stuffies or toys and then she put me in jail. Many of you are probably wondering what I did to land me in such an unjust situation...

Well, yesterday was a nice day outside. I thought it would be fun to go visit the neighbors and spread some of my Golden charm. Of course, the neighbors loved me. Pretty soon I see Mom (the first time, and Dad the second) charging across our yard yelling, "Get over here." Next thing I knew, I was in jail.

I hope I get to come out soon. Mom has 3 more days til summer break. I think we could have a lot of fun.

The Countdown

It's that time of year again. My mom has 8 more school days til I get to spend every day with her. I expect we will hike, take walks and she will shower me with affection all day long. I can't wait!
Clearly my mom needs a break...excuse my feet :( Perhaps when summer gets here, she will keep me better groomed.

Happy Mother's Day

Wishing all the Golden Moms a great Mother's Day!

Vacation Without Me

My humans took vacations without me. I stayed at home with Grandma Debi. Grandma Debi spoils me and I'm very lucky she comes to stay. If she didn't stay, I'd be left at the kennel all by myself.
Here are a couple photos of my humans on their vacations. They are good parents and I'm glad they got some time away.

Dad mountain biking in Utah
Mom hiking in New Mexico

Even though I gave them the cold shoulder after they returned from their trips, I'm glad to have them home. Because of the guilt they felt for leaving me, I scored some extra treats over the past week!

I'm Still Here!

It has been a busy few weeks with my humans. Mom just finished her River to River race. This is where her and a team of 7 other runners run from the Mississippi to the Ohio River (80 mi). Plus they are both getting ready to leave me. Dad is going to Utah to mountain bike and Mom is going to New Mexico for what she calls, "R&R". That means I will be here with Grandma Debi. I really love my Grandma Debi but still get a little nervous that my humans have left me for good.

I will try and keep in touch a little better after my humans come back from their trips.

It's My Mom's Fault

I borrowed that subject line from my other boyfriend, Farley. I am blaming Mom for my absence in blogland. It's been nearly 2 weeks! Not only that, I have received more birthday gifts but you wouldn't know it because Mom hasn't blogged. I may be advertising for new humans soon. Until then, check out my belated birthday gift from Farley:
It's a new stuffie. I always get so excited when I get a new stuffie.

"I love you pink monkey"

Thank you Farley for the new stuffie. I just love it!

More Birthday

When you are a Golden loved as much as me, your birthday can spread over a few weeks. I was so excited to receive a birthday gift from my human Aunt Tina. She knows how much I love babies so......

What else was in the box?

A chewy toy bone and a treat.
Thanks Aunt Tina! You know just what I like.

My Birthday

The day was just perfect! My humans celebrated my birthday by taking me hiking.

Sniffing the cool breeze...

Exploring the trails

Taking a dip

Then we came home and the real celebrating began.

First, with ice cream....

Then with gifts from my boyfriends, Augie and Ti. Thanks for the beautiful card and my new stuffies! I really love the yellow chick. It's my new favorite.

And my new outfit (leash & collar) from my humans.

Oh how thankful I am to have such nice friends and a wonderful family!
Note from Sophie's Mom: Sophie has received more birthday gifts. I will be blogging about those soon!
