Good Grief!!! Look at me .... this is not the same day, but it IS the same "wild boy" hair.... is there no end to this madness??  MOM!!! My kingdom for a groomer!

Happy Easter to all my friends and family. As you probably noticed, I have been away from blogging for quite some time. My Mom and I have had a difficult time trying to get back into it since the loss of my best pal Farley. But lately, Mom and I have talked alot and we decided what better day than Easter -- a time of new beginnings -- to start my blog again. So, I'm back and I will try to share my antics with you on a regular basis and along the way, I will also share some important life lessons that my pal Farley taught me.

Here I am enjoying a glorious, bright sunny Easter

Mom seems to have brought the garden inside......I am confused by this blooming garden in our family room, but it seems to make Mom happy so I will play along with her.

By the way, those hippos are not grazing in Mom's flower bed, they are not real. My Mom collects hippos....we have a million of them....I don't get that either, but again, I humor her.

And what Easter Sunday would be complete without a nap with a bunny stuffie?!?

On this beautiful Sunday, I hope everyone had a very good day. Since it is a special Sunday, I will share the most important lesson I learned from my pal.......Life is precious, live each day to the fullest.

Rest in Peace Farley

My humans and I are sad beyond words. My best pal Farley has crossed the Rainbow Bridge way too soon. God must truly have needed an exceptional dog to be by his side. Rest in peace Farley. You will live in our hearts forever.

Hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas

Greetings family and friends.... my apologies once again for my absence...... my Mom promises a "New Year's resolution" to do better in 2012. In her defense, we have had a lot of stuff going on at our house which has not left Mom much time to blog. My Mom and Dad did something called "remodeling" to our kitchen.....I don't know what that means, but to me it meant a nice man name Mike who came to my house every day and brought me cookies....he made all our cupboards in the kitchen look real nice and then he had some other men come and put in new kitchen floor and carpet in the family room and then a guy put in something called molding and then there was a painter.... I know him from a couple of years ago... his Mom had a Golden. Anyway, what was supposed to take about 2 weeks, turned into nearly a 2 plus month project.

My Dad had a birthday while I was on a blogging leave of absence and then there was Thanksgiving. And I went back to my Dr. Jeff and received an excellent report on my health -- my liver issues are stable and my weight is good and compared to a year ago at this time, all is absolutely right with the world.

Which brings us to Christmas......I received several gifts for which I am very grateful.... let me address them one at a time...

First, a few weeks before Christmas, I got a package in the mail for my pals, Augie and Ti......I know it was mine because I saw my name on the package.....Mom opened it and promptly whisked it away to a Christmas stocking that was not mine.... did she think she was tricking me?!? I know that is not my stocking -- mine is the one that says, "I love my Dog".....and there my present remained until Christmas morning...... some nonsense about I would "rip it to shreds" ...... SHEESH!  A guy can't even have his own gift....

See, there is my present from Augie and Ti in some "no-name" sock.....Thanks very much guys... when I finally got your present, it was awesome.

Let me just give you a quick run through of what else this lucky Golden Boy received for are my gifts from my bestest pal Farley......

I got a mini-lunch box with peanut butter cookies inside and a 35 lb. box of round peanut butter treats.... wait, what Mom??? Oh, sorry, it is a 3.5 lb. box....35 lbs..... ha ha ha... in my dreams... THANKS FARLEY, YOU'RE THE BEST!

And then on Christmas Eve, we had a some what altered tradition. My older brother's girlfriend Sophie always used to come over on Christmas Eve with her humans. Perhaps you will recall that Sophie crossed the "Rainbow Bridge" in January. We still miss her everyday. But, to my surprise, her humans kept the tradition going and came to visit me anyway. They brought me a "Hickory Farms" gift box.....

It's really dog toys made to look like "Hickory Farm" stuff, but I loved it and they also brought me a few packages of  "Milo Kitchen" treats. If you haven't tried them, I give them 2 paws up -- delicious!!! Thanks Sophie's humans.... you are so special to me.

And then came Christmas morning......look what Santa brought this "good" boy...

I got a new bed....  the striped thing on the bottom.... a treat puzzle (on your right) and a new stuffie that my Mom laid carefully on my new bed so that no one would know that I totally destroyed it already.

I am truly a lucky boy. I hope all my friends had a wonderful holiday too. The holidays make a guy really tired so I am just going to lie by the tree and the fireplace and count my blessings.....God bless us every one!!

Have you seen this man?!? If so, proceed with extreme caution or better yet, DO NOT approach at all. You must consider this innocent looking face as ...... Coughing and extremely CONTAGIOUS!!

Yes, friends, it is true I am dangerous.... I have some how been stricken with the highly contagious "Kennel Cough". Strangely enough, it seems that I managed to succumb to this situation at, of all places, my doctor's office..... what is wrong with this picture.

I am quarantined for at least 10 days.... had to alert all my neighbor friends -- three sides of my house -- I can go for a walk, but can't meet any new friends or say "Hi" to any old friends.... I am a coughing prisoner in my own home. Since I cough all night, here is what I do all day....

I can sleep all day, but my Mom and Dad are not so lucky.... I keep them up all night with my coughing and they don't have the luxury of napping all day. So, we will send you this message....... If you haven't been vaccinated against "Kennel Cough".... have the humans take you right now, or tomorrow morning at the very latest. Trust me friends, this is not something you want to get. You feel like something is stuck in your throat and you can't get it out. AND, worst of all, the noise that comes out of your mouth makes you sound like a Canadian Goose...... wait, there is also the whole 4 MORE PILLS a day for me ..... you will recall I have those ongoing liver issues which require 4 other pills a day..... my insides are a mini-pharmacy..... GET VACCINATED against Kennel Cough -- trust me on this one.

In will report back in a few days as to where I have been for the last month or so.... although my Mom is a slacker, it's not all her fault. Hope you all had a better weekend than I did.

I wish I had my very own boy......

A young human boy my Mom and Dad call a "grandson" came to visit me on Saturday.... what a great way to spend the unofficial last Saturday of Summer.........

 We played in the yard and I got lots of hugs on the floor......I slept with my monkey stuffie (well, not so stuffed anymore) on my back while the humans ate dinner.......

And  then suddenly, "my boy" had to go home.........

One last hug and off they went...... my Mom and Dad give me endless love, but sometimes a guy just has to play with a boy of his own. Come back soon human boy, I had great fun.
