Bathing beauty

This weekend we went out to one of our other pack houses, where I can swim and swim, for an annual event called a fireman's chicken barbecue. Two years ago, this was the first human food my people gave me and I looooved it. I guess the rest is history.

Speaking of rest, I am feeling a little better, and thank you for the get-well wishes! I am still sneezing and coughing when I get excited, but not as bad as last week. I'm trying to get lots of sleep so I can get well faster. (And I just like to sleep.)

In the doghouse

My humans took me to my new vet today. They gave me treats. Unfortunately, they also said I probably have a mild form of kennel cough. I don't have to take any medicine, but they said it will take THREE WEEKS to go away and until then I can't play with, walk with, or even smell any other dogs. This is such a bummer. I'm never going to make any new friends at this rate!

The new dog run

Moving to a new neighborhood means you need to learn a lot of new things. Tonight me and one of the humans went on a walk to find the dog run that is closest to our new house. Here I am on the Brooklyn Heights promenade, with NYC in the background. Hi NYC!

It took us a while, but then over a hill we saw it--the dog run! It's really big!

There were some good dogs there, but I felt like being a loner today. So this is mostly what I did until it was time to leave. Maybe next time I'll be more social.

Also, I like the new dog walker. I barked at him a bit today when he showed up, just to see what he would do. But he toughed it out and turned out to be OK. I think we'll be friends.

New digs

Wow--it's been an overwhelming couple of weeks. First my humans went on vacation. Without me--can you believe that!? My old dogwalker Jeff stayed with me and we had a great time. I even lost a few pounds. Then when they came home they put everything we own into boxes. And then these strange guys came and took the boxes (I barked and barked at them) and brought them to this new place, where we are now staying. I am sort of confused by the whole thing, as you can see:
The next morning, it was a beautiful day. Me and the humans were up super-early and we went to a big park. I ran and ran and zoomed and zoomed. If you click on this photo to make it bigger, you'll see what I mean.
It was awesome! It even has a beach for dogs, which I went to a long time ago and still knew how to get to.
Today I went to my new dggie daycare place, Monster Mutt. My humans say it's appropriately named--har dee har har. Anyway, I spent all day playing with another chocolate lab named Mookie. When we got home, I laid down to nap and barely moved all night. Other than to write this post, of course.

Tomorrow is the first walk with my new walker, Dave. I'll let you all know how that goes!
