My Maine vacation - Part 3

I'm back, later than expected because of computer problems...

Do you want to know the highlights of my vacation?

Meeting other beautiful dogs, like this majestic rescue greyhound.

Seeing other cavaliers, like Nigel, the ruby, and Nicky, a blenheim like me.

Walking near the beach, in the sunshine.

And eating a frozen delight made for doggies.

This whole week was super fun, as were the past 7 days, relaxing at home with mom.
She has to go back to work tomorrow.

See you soon!

My Maine vacation - Part 2

A week at the beach can be exhausting,
with all that walking and running.
At the Hounds Tooth Inn, our b&b,
I played it cool,
most of the time. I did bark a bit too much, but I couldn't help myself.
I'm a guard dog, right?
During breakfast, all the other dogs played together outside.
Not me!
See, I have to be close to my mom all the time. She tried to put me on leash next to the door.
It worked the first morning, when my crying was not too loud, but to my greatest horror, I had to stay by myself in the car at breakfast time the rest of the week.
It was only for 10 minutes each day, but still, what a treatment for a diva dog...
I did play with the other canine guests in the afternoon, but honestly, my favorite part of the stay was to meet the human guests. They were all so nice with me!
Look, here are our hosts, Randee and Norm.
Thanks for all those treats! They were yummy!
Mom and dad had a great time in your beautiful home.

Ready for Part 3 of my vacation? Come back on Thursday!
Take care!

My Maine vacation - Part 1

Last week was fabulous: I went to the Kennebunks, in Maine,
with my parents.
Bye bye Vanille and Misha!
I spent 6 hours in the car, but it all went OK because we stopped every 2 hours. Look how comfy I am!
The very first day, we went to the beach.
We had to wait until 5 pm to actually run in the sand
because doggies aren't allowed before that.
Mom and dad already knew this, so it was OK.
We walked a lot...

... and when it was too hot, we relaxed a bit.
We stayed at a great pet friendly b&b, where I made some nice friends,
both canine and human. I'll show it to you tomorrow.

Who's going on vacation?

An hour ago, daddy brought 2 big suitcases up in the bedroom
and mom started putting clothes (like the pair of socks I just stole), shoes and books
in the biggest one.
Are we going on vacation?
We are going to spend the week in Kennebunkport, Maine.
I'm going to see the ocean for the fist time!
See you again next Sunday!
Until then, Sophie and I won't be able to visit your blogs,
but we'll start reading them again as soon as we arrive.
Bye bye friends!

Already one year!

Wow! Time goes by really quickly. Today, I celebrate the
1st anniversary
of my arrival in my human family.
For the occasion, mom opened a bottle of wine
and I got a raw bone. Super!
As for dad, even after a long week at work, he happily walked me around the block.
Have a great week-end!

Meet the cats

I think it's time for you to meet my older sister, Vanille.
I cannot say she welcomed me with open paws
when I arrived a year ago,
but she seems to tolerate me more and more every day.
This fiesty feline is old: she just turned 14.
She's really skinny now...
and she's forgetting where is the litter box and what to do in there.
"Downstairs, to your left, dear!"
Misha, 7, loves 2 things in life: eating and sleeping.
He was afraid of me for months,
but early this summer, he started to sleep on the floor again and he's calmer.
"Big boy, I may have fun chasing you, but it's just play!
I wag my tail non stop when I see you!"
Although I love both of them very much, I have to say that there is 1 thing that drives me crazy: Vanille and Misha get 3 - yes 3 - meals a day, while I am fed only twice.
OK, I do get treats and they don't, but still...
Mom tells me that they were here before me and she cannot change their routine,
but my answer is: it's not fair!
Kibbles before going to bed: that would make my life perfect!
Sweet dreams!
