Beachy Birthday

this was me a year ago.
i was a lot smaller.
WOOF. i can't believe I've had my very own family for a whole year. Mom & Dad said that since my birthday is a VERY special occasion we needed to celebrate in a VERY special way. So for my first ever birthday party my parents took me & my brother Teddy to Huntington Dog Beach. I was so excited to touch the ocean for the first time and i even saw some #SQUIRRELS while i was there:

i had never seen that much water before.
the ocean is much bigger than my bathtub at home.

when we first got to the beach i told Teddy that
this water was for playing and not for drinking.
the ocean was just as beautiful as i imagined it would be

Teddy was so happy to be off-leash.
he was the fastest dog there.
i have to admit i did not go in too deep
but some dogs went out really far.

we saw so many happy dogs on the beach
but i think i was the only one having a birthday.
Teddy said he liked the smell of the ocean air
better than the smell of smoggy air.
the best part was that there were SQUIRRELS living in
the rocks at the back of the beach.
i climbed to the very top so i could make sure 
no SQUIRRELS were terrorizing the ocean.
 i think my 1st birthday celebration was a success. it makes me happy
that my family wanted to share the ocean with me.

Dog Premiere Party

The Grove has
movies & shopping
WOOF! This weekend my pal Widmore invited my brother Teddy & i to a premiere party at The Grove. It was for a movie called Marley & Me: The Puppy Years.

Widmore lives in West LA 

Teddy wasn't sure if he wanted
to go down there with all those people
Teddy was a little reluctant to go at first. He is not a big fan of crowds and he wasn't sure if he would get lost. i told Teddy that the worst thing he can do is let fear get in the way of an adventure. Teddy decided to be brave and boy was i proud of him. We had a BLAST:

Teddy met Widmore for the first time
we got to see Marley from the movie
our favorite part was that there were rescues
helping dogs like Harry find forever homes

Three Dog Bakery gave away doggy cupcakes!
there was even free beer for dogs!
(i only had a small taste since i'm on a diet)
me & Teddy cheered during
 the Zoom Room agility contest

Teddy was really worn out
from having so much fun
i was so happy that i couldnt stop smiling

Back on Track

visiting the vet is a necessary evil
After my brother Teddy's recent sickness i decided i should suck it up and visit the vet for a check-up. i held my breath through all the poking & prodding and figured once it was over everything would be back to normal. well the vet said i was healthy but she also said i was a little too healthy and needed to shed a couple of my sausage & bacon filled pounds.
i'm gonna have to cut back on a few pleasures

As dedicated members of the #SquirrelPatrol its important that my brother Teddy & i are in peak physical condition. if we aren't at the top of our game who knows what mischief those fluffy-tailed vermin might cause.

In an effort to get our bodies & minds back on track Teddy & i have begun a new training regimen:
we must make sure we have lots of physical activity
we must also exercise our minds

we must maintain a diet fit for warriors
most important is we must always believe in
ourselves and always remember to have the
