what did you do this saturday?

today began with a LONG nice walk with my mom and aunt elly. instead of going the usual route, we went the other way (only 1.6 miles on google maps, we're slackers today, i know) because we can walk to the kangaroo. why would we want to walk to a gas station you ask? because there is a REDBOX! she's pretty convinced that it won't be too long until netflix & redbox shut blockbuster's doors. anyway, we rented a movie ($1!!! there's not too much you can get with a dollar these days..) 

well let me just preface this next paragraph by saying that my mom was wearing sweatpants but changed into shorts because it was a bit HOT! needless to say my walk to the kangaroo was a bit of a struggle - with all my fuzz. my mom thought my sugar was low (can that happen to dogs?) and bought me a slim jim, YUM!! the walk back was awful. she was dragging me along and there was slack in my leash for once. i got smart and walked in aunt elly's shadow. when we got back home my mom cranked up the AC for me.

finally my mom put together my doggie booster seat for the car!! (ive only been asking for ages..) it is my FAVORITE THING IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD! now i can see out the window and i don't fall over whenever my mommy turns! we rode to the vet to get some more heartworm meds and back home again. then i hit the bathtub. i'm ashamed to say that mommy thought "brown sugar and fig" body wash would make me smell "delicious." i say it makes me smell like A GIRL! 

tell me how your saturday went. i'd love to know!

EXERCISE!!

me and my mom have been taking regular walks for a little over a week now. she comes home on her lunch break for a while and takes me out for a walk. out of curiosity, i google-mapped our trail and found out that its a TOTAL of 2.4 miles! WOW!!! we are both healthy pups, huh? google map lets you tell it if you're walking or driving and it also has a video of your route with real pictures (not the fake cartoon ones!) it looks just like you're driving down the street! try it out sometime. its real fun!!

here are a couple pictures of our route. unfortunately, the street we live on doesn't have a sidewalk. so we have to walk down it a little to get to the bike path.



hope everyone else is getting their fill of exercise, too!!

a laidback kind of weekend.


my mom got sick this weekend. well actually she got sick during the week but it was a lot worse over the weekend. so we just stayed at home. 

friday night we went to chili's for dinner (well, ok maybe she just brought me home some leftovers) and my mom and aunt elly decided to install a dimmer. once they turned off the power at the circuit breaker it was DARK and had to use a flashlight. overall it was just a really bad idea. they waited to install the second one until the next day when the SUN was out!!

saturday i took care of my mom. she was in bed most of the day. i brought her milk and cookies! (girl scout cookies!!! peanut-butter sandwiches. she ate them and then remembered the peanut butter recall, but so far, so good...)

today is a really nice day! and my mom is feeling better. she opened the windows and we just finished watching a movie together (on our new tv!) later we are going to make some baklava, courtesy of giada delaurentiis! btw, does anybody know what CHOCOLATE is, or why my mom loveeeeees it but won't let me have any?! food network is doing chocolate lovers weekend and she keeps watching it!!

well, thats about it over here. luckily my mom does not have as many tests this week so i can steal the computer more often. talk to you guys soon!



ps. did ya'll see the pictures from my visit to st. augustine last weekend!?

the great escape!

i would like to preface this post by stating: i know you all look forward to my posts and that its been quite a long time. all i have to say is that this is my mom's computer and she's been using it a lot to study for her 3 tests this week. now onto my story:

i was out for a ride in the car, it was fun. then we got home and my mom filled up my bowl with some water. i ran under the table with a leaf i'd picked up on the way in. i was being as stealth as i could be, but she saw the leaf and took it away from me. she went upstairs to put some things away and my aunt elly went on the porch to water the palm-treeish plant. she didn't completely shut the door, just shut it without it clicking.

from under the table i could smell the sweet fragrance of freshly cut grass and it was the first warm day in a long long time. i really wanted to be outside. i stuck my nose in between the crack of the door and i was out! i did it!!

meanwhile, my mom had come downstairs and was getting some lunch together when she noticed how QUIET it was. "where's bandy?" she asked aunt elly. elly said "i was just thinking the exact same thing." my mom ran upstairs checked under her bed, under uncle justin's bed - looked in all the closets and couldn't find me. she said the last time she saw me i was under the table with a leaf in my mouth.

immediately aunt elly ran outside to find me. my mom stayed inside to keep looking. eventually she concluded i was definitely not inside. mom called grandmom crying, grandmom also started freaking out. (in retrospect she says it was not the best idea..what was she going to do 850 miles away? FREAK OUT!)

while all this was going on i was trotting down the sidewalk of our development, enjoying a stroll that did not require a leash for once. i started getting really hot though because it was warmer than i remembered. but it was okay, i was on an adventure! i ran to the field by the mailboxes and ran laps for a long long time. 

...thats when aunt elly came up. she was very upset, i thought she was sad i didn't ask her to run laps with me. she started running toward me and i was so excited that we were going to run laps TOGETHER!! she was yelling BANDIT BANDIT!!!! i stopped and she ran over and picked me up. she just started walking back to mom's apt when mom ran out of the house like a mess. she ran up to me and gave me so many hugs. i dont think i got that many hugs before. 

i had a fun time =D
