Big dog; puppy brain

Hello everyone, it’s me (Cabo) again. Mom seems to be really busy with stuff….I think it’s something called the “holidays.” So, I’m taking this opportunity to post for her.

I’m officially 8 months old today! It seems like furever ago when I joined my family. And, as you can see, a lot of changes have been going on! I went to see my friends at the doctor’s office and they told Mom I weighed 48 pounds. And….then gave me two treats! It’s always fun when I walk in the door and meet other furry friends.

Summer was a blast. Mom got me a baby pool! And there’s these water spouts that pop up out of the ground in the yard that are soooooo fun to run through. One of my favorite things to do on a summer night was to make Mom wait outside while I jumped to catch fireflies in the air. She laughed a couple of times, but I think she got tired of waiting on me to do my “business.”

I have TWO girlfriends. One of either side of my house. Ellie is a shepherd/boxer mix and she can keep up with me. But, she came over one day and tried to run off. So, we don’t get to play with each other much anymore. Good thing everyone likes to throw the ball for me.

I’m trying to be a good pupper…really, I am. But, to be honest, I had a few fails the past couple of months. Mom planted some really great-smelling flowers in September and I just couldn’t help myself. In fact, I helped myself to them all over the patio…dirt and all. That didn’t go too well for me.

A couple days ago a tree appeared in the house. I’m not sure what to do with it since every time I sniff it, I hear that word, “No.” And now it’s all lit up and doesn’t much look like a tree anymore. Mom has found me a couple of times with a pine cone in my mouth. I honestly thought the basket of smelly pine cones were free for the taking. Evidently not.

Oh well, happy 8 month birthday to me! I hope everyone has warm and wonderful holidays….whatever those are.

Before I get back to chewing my sticks in the yard, Mom told me about a blog hop called Awww Monday over at Comedy Plus. Just thought I’d pick a photo for her and add it to the fun.

  1. Oh, Lisa, he is just adorable. I DO understand the “Big Dog Puppy Brain” syndrome. We adopted Evie in September. She is 10 months old and weighs about 55 pounds now so you can imagine the chaos when she decides to let loose and expend all of her energy. Our tree is not up yet, but I am sure it will just be another big adventure when we do put it up. And even more so when Max (my son’s dog, and Evie’s brother) is here with my son for Christmas. Oh, lots, and lots of fun!!!!
    xo.

  2. Cabo…I LOVE when you post, you’re a natural-born writer! And I have to say, you’re getting more and more adorable every time I see a photograph of you. You’ve got the softest looking fur!

    That last photo of you is stellar! What sweet eyes you have!

    Please tell Mom I said hello and I hope she and the family had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

    Looking forward to your next post, Cabo!
