No, am Australian!
No, always wear red.  Red power color.

Also, had kennel cough.  Was most sad.

Do not listen much to music... so had to go through music of Sidekick to find good song.  Was hard game.  Think, 'Beautiful Day' by U2.  So like U2, because wrote theme song, 'Vertigo.'  'Beautiful Day' good song, it say all about how things so crazy but life still amazing and is for to be lived.

Cold weather is gone now?

Might be that cold weather finally over!  Am most glad.  Was so so so unnatural, to always be shivery.  But now, is toasty warm out!  Is so best for morning breakfasts outside, then for afternoon walks, then for evening zooms and wrestles and chases around yard with sisters.  Even best friends JC and Wyatt have been enjoying with.

JC and Wyatt wait at bottom of driveway while self goes into house.

Must admit, though cold so unnatural and crazy and hope that never happens again, were good things too.  Was fun for to chase snowflakes up and down stairs.  And was nice for to snuggle under blankets.  But this is better!
Sisters and self play all crazy on the deck.

So squinty in the sun! 

 Cookie in her best lying spot.

 Cookie so most beautiful and fancy.

But is even nicer to spend all the day outside in sun and in shade.  Just wish, for water to show up!  Do not know, where water has gone, but is most important in warm weather to play with.  Will go on hunt for sprinkly, swimmy, splashy water.

A new little sister?

 Think maybe, Sidekick has brought home for, a new littlest sister.  She so cute and terrierish, and has name of Sophie.

When first saw Sophie, was most excite.  Is little toy for to play with!  Toy for to jump on and paw and bite!  But soon realize, is more fun than just new little toy.  Sophie plays back.  Sophie will run for self to chase, and she will put paws most playful up on face.  Then, jump on back of Sophie and push her down to ground.  Also then collapse onto ground for game of biteyface and squiggle.  Then is time to chase more!
Little Sister Sophie is all up in face!

Will lie down and make self small.

Am captured!

Much love.

Playing inside and playing outside with little sister Sophie most great.  When inside, will usually lie down on blanket and paw and bite at.  Is most fun.  When playing outside, will run and run and run around yard while Sophie chases after.  Chase in the arroyo (great Spanish word.  Easy for to say and spell!), and chase on the deck, and chase in the long grass and chase through the trees and chase under the trampoline.  Then, find great toy and Sophie want to take but say, “No!  Is only for SuperDogs!”  

When is not time for to play, is also good.  When relaxing time is needed, all dogs get chewy rawhide and nom it all up.  Sometimes Sophie prefer to steal deer antler.  Do not mind, is sometimes important for little sister to have fun things.

Is most best, for to have small sister to boss around and jump on.  Now have big sister and little sister and is most balanced house.

Weekend before last, for birthday of Sidekick, Sidekick go down to Apple Turkey without, for to see Evil Stepmummy.  Was so upset that could not go with!  But then, rest of pack said, "Is ok, Vertigo.  Sidekick just mean and evil, but pack so love.  Pack will entertain and take care of."

And so!  So they did!  Did the very best thing that could have done.  Boy human puppy played with BUBBLES!  Is like water in a tasty floaty circle!

Blurry bubbles taste so best.

No patience for to wait!  Will eat bubble NOW!

Pointy noses so best for to pop bubbles.

Only bad thing is when bubble is in eye.

More Weave Stick-ing

Agility training always so best!  Have started with the weekly classes again, in which can do many jumps and teeters and a-frames and dog walks and tunnels!  When Jacinta make mistake, turn around and yell, "You bad sidekick!  You so bad at Agility!  Please to be not doing wrong thing ever again!"  Is so frenziful.  At end of run, get stringed cheese and for to play with tug rope.

At home, training does not stop.  Have begun for to practice weave sticks again and are doing so well.  Now have another set lined up, for to have 6 sticks for to run through.  Obsverve!  Only do not take too much notice of spin at end, where knock over pole.  Is wrong for to do but is sidekick's fault.  Am so excited for to get reward and cannot wait for it!
