I thought I should start this update with a few pictures so you know what I look like. I was particularly proud of this first picture because it was the first time I saw a bird and I actually caught the bird. This was at my grandmas house before I went to live in Austin with my mom. Someone said the bird was dead, but I was still pretty proud.
This is a picture that mom took of me in my new backyard. I was playing with my new big sisters and I decided to take a break and look over my backyard. Mom said I looked like a prince looking over my new world. Mom is always calling me her little prince. Well not always, sometimes she says I am an outlaw. I was named for an old west outlaw. I guess maybe she calls me an outlaw when I am doing something I am not supposed to do, like taking her shoes or stealing Belle's bone.
Anyway, this picture was taken about a week ago. Since then I visited Lowe's with mom. She had to get a new door knob for the door to the backyard. Anyway we had to wait a long time. I got to ride in the basket and lot's of people came and talked to me and loved on me. It was fun. I even got to watch them make keys. Boy was that noisy, but it didn't scare me a bit. I tried to get closer, but mom wouldn't let me. We also got caught in a rainstorm with thunder and everything. Mom made us wait inside at Lowe's until it was over, but I particulary like to play in the rain and could not understand why she didn't want to get her hair wet.
The other place I went last week was to see the Doctor. That was kinda scary because she checked me out to make sure I was healthy. She listened to my heart and looked in my ears and eyes. She even checked the other end as she said puppies sometimes have worms. Good news is I was A ok and now I don't have to go back until I have to have my boosters. I wonder what boosters are?
My big sisters are pretty impressive. There names are Belle and Halo. Belle is the oldest. She is really old at 4.5. Halo is younger and really pretty. She is 3 years old and she is a show dog. Mom showed her at Reliant the weekend she picked me up. Halo didn't win, but she did place. Mom was very proud and said someday I would be a show dog too. Halo and I are half brother and sister because we have the same doggy mom (Madrone Southwind Chime). I will write about my doggy mom sometime. Anyway, back to my sisters. At first, Belle wasn't very friendly to me. I think she wasn't sure she wanted a little brother. Eventually she came around though. One evening mom and I were playing and Belle decided she wanted to play too. We played tug for a while and then we just wrestled on the floor. Now Belle is my favorite. I try to do everything she does, except I don't mess with her bone. At least, not when she is looking as she really doesn't like that. She doesn't do anything much to me when I do, but she does kinda growl and I know whe doesn't like it. Halo is ok, but she hasn't been as friendly as Belle. She also prefers to stay inside where it is cool. Mom says she is a princess. Halo did play with me the other night and taught me how to shake my toys to make sure they are dead. That was really cool. I practice that allot now.
Mom says she has already started training me. All I know is she says No when there is something really interesting I want to do, then she makes me sit. I am pretty good at sitting. The other day I tried to steal her sandwich. She just kept grabbing my collar, pulling me away as she said no, and then she said sit and showed me what she wanted. Well I figured that maybe if I walked up real nice and sat she would just give me that sandwich. So I tried that, and all I got was a hug and kiss (Yech!!), a good boy, and a doggy treat. Boy I sure did want that sandwich. I love food!
Well that's all for now. I am sure I will have more to share soon.
