Here I am on my 8th birthday with my sammich

July is almost over! It’ll be only a few days until I turn 10. I hope mom gets me something special.. like a sandwich. I love sandwiches. They are so good. They combine my favorite things. Bread. Gooood. Meat. Goooood. Cheese. Goooooood. My mouth is watering and drool is dripping down as I type. Excuse me as I use my paw to wipe my mouth.

Do you like my bum?

Here I am playing with my best friend Purple Guy with Big Feet. He jumped away from me when we were playing fetch. I tried to grab him with my mouth, but he missed and bounced all over the place. And then he made a squeaky noise. I love it when Purple Guy with Big Feet makes squeaky noises. When I hear that, I know it’s time to party! I’ll drop everything for Purple Guy with Big Feet squeaks!

I look like a puppy here!

As summer is passing me by, I am slowly approaching my tenth birthday! I will be 10 in August! Oh my goodness. I am an old foagie. But I don’t always feel so old. Sure, when I wake up in the morning I need to stretch and let everyone know I’m stretching with the old man noises I am making. And sure if you pick me up like a baby I will make grumpy old man noises telling you to put me down because my back can’t take it. And sure if we go on a walk, I can’t make it as far as I used to and you have to carry me home. But I am young at heart! I like to run around the house like a crazed maniac at times, and I like to jump on and off the bed like a baby kangaroo. I’m a puppy at heart!

Do you mind? I'm sleeping.

As I’ve posted before, I like to bark at anything and everything! If I hear people outside mowing the lawn, all hell will break loose from my mouth in the form of yappity yap. If I hear the mailman outside dropping off our post, I will release my barky Kraken and make your ears hurt! Even when mom is fixing me dinner, if I hear something, I will sound the alarm and warn everybody that I’m on alert! But instead of being 100% alert, I’ll keep stealing glances over my shoulder when she’s making me dinner. I may want to warn others about surrounding danger, but I will drop my post and make a beeline to my food as soon as it’s ready! Food > Danger!

You can count on me!

I look like a beached whale

Here is another one of my favorite toys. My Holey Red Ball That Can Be Filled With Treats! Whenever mom needs to leave the house and I don’t want her to go, she will fill the Holey Red Ball That Can Be Filled With Treats up with treats and it will keep me occupied for about five minutes, but it’s enough time for her to leave without distracting me too much. It only takes me five minutes to take out the treats because I am awesome and I have mastered the skill of retrieving treats from the Holey Red Ball That Can Be Filled With Treats.

Peace,
Oakie

Friends are swell

Here I am with my best friend Purple Guy with Big Feet. We’ve been through it all together. Three residential moves. He goes with me on vacation (well, when mom goes on vacation and I get stuck at the kennel), and he keeps me happy during play time. Purple Guy with Big Feet is so fun to play fetch with. When I can’t catch him, he will bounce on the ground all crazy and all over the place because of his crazy feet, and that in turn makes me run more and faster and further and all crazy as well. We are crazy together. Crazy Besties forever!

Someone needs a haircut

This is what happens when mom gets lazy and doesn’t feel like cutting my hair. Shag alert! She took me to work one day like this and everyone laughed at me and at her for her poor haircutting skills. But they still thought I was cute even though I was partially blinded by my bangs. I am cute 100% all of the time.

I'm so beautiful

Here I am two years ago when I used to be thin and not have a fat belly like I do now. Look at how fit and lovely I am in this photo. Why, mama, why must you make me fat!?! You feed me twice as much now and we get doubly less the amount of walks! I mean, I’m not complaining about all the food and treats you feed me, but come on, I need more quality walks! Please?

I'll just sit here while you vacuum in the other room

Mom got a new vacuum, and it is super scary!!! I do okay with the old vacuum she used. It sucked. I mean, it sucked as in it wasn’t very good or powerful, and it didn’t suck much crap off the carpet. The new one is so powerful it scares the weeners out of me! As soon as she turns it on I run to another room and hide. I am afraid the suction of it will suck me out of the room and into the vacuum. I am so scurrred.

Help,
Oakie

I'm GRRRRReat!

If there’s something strange in your neighborhood, who you gonna call? Oakie Buster! I ain’t ‘fraid of no ghosts. Yep you know it.. when I hear a strange noise, I go all ape sh%t and bark like a mofo until my balls fall off! Okay, that is impossible because my balls have already been snitched off. But fo reals, I am a good watch dog. If I hear anything strange, I will alert you with my incessant barking and yapping until I get really thirsty, and then I’ll go to the bedroom and get a drink of water and lie down to rest a bit and cool off. But then I’m all Rambo on you after that! Just give me a few minutes to rest first..

xx,
Oakie
