Old Friends are the Best

Today I got a big surprise--my friend Mia and her human came to visit us in Brooklyn!!!! (And Skipper's human came too--but Skipper isn't grown up enough to come yet so he had to stay home.) It was great. We played, we chased, and we ate some of these dog cupcakes (or maybe they're pup-cakes?):

After breakfast we went for a big walk around the neighborhood. We went over to the river even. I hope Mia can come again soon, or maybe we can go see her in our car. I miss my friend!

Triathlon weekend

Sorry I've been away for a while--the humans have been very busy! A perfect example of this was this weekend, when one of them did something called a triathlon. It meant getting up veeeery early, and driving to the beach, which I really liked.

There were a bunch of humans swimming in the water. So many of them!

Then they got out of the water and ran past us, and jumped onto bikes and raced away. I missed my human a lot--I just wanted to hang out with him.

Then they came back from riding their bikes, and started to just run away. I was pretty confused. But my human came back soon! I guess it wasn't good for him that he came back, but I was so happy to see him I didn't care.

It was only 10 am when we finished with all this, so it was just the start of our day. But I missed most of the rest of it: I slept in the car on the way home, and with the other human when we got back to our apartment. Triathlons are all well and good, but nothing beats sleep--I'm the champion of that!

Country dog

This weekend was a long weekend, so my humans and me went out to one of our other pack houses. It was beautiful--very sunny and not too hot. Perfect for those of us with fur coats. I was sort of tired after the drive out, so I caught some rays and some zzz's at the same time.

The next morning me and one of the humans went to the beach.

We walked along the shore and I got some quality splashing time in. That always puts me in a good mood!

That afternoon it was more swimming for me--in the pool this time, which is better because there are no waves to scare me. But the trade-off is they make me play fetch. I humor them for a while.

I also got a new bed this weekend for the other pack house. I was sleeping on the floor so this is a major improvement. It's huge!

Monday morning we explored a new small beach place down the street--the human says it's called a cove.

I was so tired from these adventures I slept the whole way home Monday afternoon. I wish weekends were every day. Or at least longer!
