Relaxing in the sunshine

Ah, the day after Thanksgiving! Just a nice day to relax in the sunshine. I had a bath today, so now I can just relax.

It's My Birthday!

Today is my birthday! Yes, I'm 12 today! It started with a birthday belly rub! Ahhh! I even sang along with the birthday song. Then I had to wear this silly hat. But, I am certain that I'm going to get a special treat later! Maybe even some ice cream!

I Come From a Highly Valued Pedigree

Humans have valued us Doxies over the centuries!
Did you know that a Doxie owned Queen Victoria as a pet (humans see it the other way around)? She said that a Dashund was guaranteed to make a home into a castle (my paraphrase).

Did you know that President Abraham Lincoln had a Dashund as a friend? 

Well, I don't know if you can believe everything you read on the Internet, but these posts are where I found this important info:

Another Vet Trip today


I'm penned up in the kitchen and recuperating after an unexpected trip to the vet today. I'm on two meds and the vet said I'll be better soon. I'm very tired.

Hi Ho, Hi Ho, it's Off to the Vet I Go!

Today it was time for a regular checkup. The vet says I'm doing pretty good for a 11.5 year old Dashund!  I'm keeping my weight down (weight can cause issues with back pain, especially in us Doxies). The Vet found a sore spot in my back, so I'll have to try to use my stairs more to get up in the sofa chair. I got my regular shots and had a blood test.

I even got a treat which I brought home to share with "Girl Friend."

I was scared with the boom-bangs (thunder) today, so I hid under alpha-Henry's desk and shake. But, now the sun is out and I'm happy again! Hooray!

Chasing an Easter Egg

Yesterday was an egg-citing day!
We celebrated Easter, the day of Christ' resurrection!
He is Risen!

These Easter Eggs are difficult to catch !

Everyone wonders why us dogs bark at the mailman. Well, I'm not going to put barks in other dog's mouths, but personally I'm just sayin' that I would like to be a Mail Dog! 
Everyone knows: Toby Delivers! 

P.S. Thanks for all the fan mail!

The King of Snow and Cold

I thought you'd like to see my kingly throne and how I wore a sweater outside a few weeks ago. Also, me walking on water. Well, frozen water anyway. Only Jesus and Peter walked on liquid water.

Here I am: the king of the castle!

And, here I am a few weeks back when it was very cold out. The sweater was pretty itchy so I had to roll around.

And, a few days ago, I took a walk on the snow!

I hope you liked the show!

Snow and Ice, not too nice

Picture from yesterday above.  Pictures from today below

I'm happy that my Alpha-two-leg clears some places for me to see grass when I go outside. Some of the clearing for today still needs to be done. I went out the front steps this morning and they weren't shoveled yet. I slid down them like they were a sliding board!

Not quite warm enough for a swim in the pool

Toby noticed the weather was warmer but not warm enough to swim in the pool. #Tobythewonderdog

Visitors are Fun!

I like it when visitors stop by. I get so excited! My tail wags and I can't stop barking. I'm just so happy!

Yesterday, some neighbors stopped by: a daisy scout, a Girl Scout and their mom, to see if we wanted any Girl Scout cookies. Of course we do!

But, I was able to cash in on treats and I only needed to do a few tricks!

I did some of my standard tricks:
* spin around in a circle
* circle around someone
* give me 5
* high five
* play hide and seek for treats
* sing happy birthday
* push something down the stairs
* push the "that was easy button"

I also got to chase the laser pointer!
I was happy for a long while after that fun visit!
