Warmer weather is here, and I love to go outside. I usually have to be tied up because I have a tendency to run to the far back yard where there's flying birds and sometimes golf balls.
But even when restrained, I can entertain myself.

Take, for example, the remains of a geranium from last year. The twigs are fun to snatch and bring into the house, but when I'm being closely monitored, my plans are spoiled.

Notice the open door? I definitely prefer it to be open so I can come and go as I please. Branches make nutritious snacks, wouldn't you agree?

You're tall and slim Petra, just like a model but you're not a model 'cause you're dare to eat.
Next time you don't have to open the door, I'll volunteer to do that job for you lady!

I love the spring time, too. I also like to chase after birds in he back yard so I have to be supervised if I'm going to be out of the fence.

FREEDOM!!!! I would love to come and go like that...but Mom is afraid I might jump in the pool or something. I hate water, she should know that by now!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

I used to LOVE to chew on sticks when I was a pup, so much fun! If you want to see pics and more videos of the Cubs game, click this link, it goes to Mom's flickr set for all the spring training games they went to.


The Cubs KILLED the A's!

I love sticks! I get all crazy about sticks and have a case of the zoomies when I get a hold of one!

Tell Motch and PA to get busy and build you a fence and get you one of those dog doors like we have. You can go in and out when ever you want that way. We even go out in the middle of the night.

Hi Petra!
I'm glad that the weather is getting nicer! I love being able to go potty without my toes freezing! I get to go out without a leash at my house! I am a very good girl and listen when I am supposed to come inside!
