Quick post

I don't have much time to post right now as Mom and Dad are currently planning to go car racing this weekend and they have to get The House With Wheels ready. Although if the weather forecast "deteriorates" they may not go. Because apparently driving large horsepower cars in the rain is No Fun. As you can see, we're back to that "horse power" thing again. The only horses I have seen around here were in the groomer's backyard the other day. Maybe Mom and Dad are going to borrow some of their horses. If they go racing, I'll be going with them, and I can report back on the horses, or lack thereof.

Congratulations to those of you who recognized the squirrel on my back in the Wordless Wednesday photo!!! I had spent hours training and then on patrol on the front porch for Operation Whack-a-Squirrel, and came into the barracks for a much deserved nap, and Mom decided to be a smart-pantys and stick my toy squirrel on my back while I was napping. Note to Chloe and LadyBug - yes it is that toy with the tree and the squirrels- I love it So Much that I also have the bird house and the beehive. I think Tank should consider using it as a training device. For those of you who haven't seen it, here it is:

Another point of interest; TaiChi and I went to the groomer's on Wednesday. Our regular groomer is sick, so we went to a new place. And Mom got lost driving us there.... It was a little tiny trailer that had crates for the little dogs, and because I'm a Big Dog, I got to sit on the couch while TaiChi was beautified. Heh. When we first got there, the lady asked Mom if I was allowed on the couch and Mom just laughed and muttered something uncharitable about me being a bed hog. Me? A bed hog? I Don't. Think. So. I just like to stretch out. That's why we have a king size bed, right?!?

Anyway, here we are, tired out from being made beautiful. I know TaiChi can get a little scruffy looking at times, but WOW, she cleans up NICELY. She is such a beautiful, regal old lady.

Yes, Mom and Dad have me cut like a poodle. Which is cool. Literally. Because I can get pretty woolly. But I also like it because I think it shows off my lovely eyes and nose.

More pictures if Mom and Dad decide not to go racing this weekend.

Dear Fiona, We have the toys too, one of Paddie's favorites!!!! We had the version of the chipmunks you have plus we have life sized squirrel toys. We have both in our backyard and can't seem to catch either of them (drat).
The toys are a good substitute :)
