Playing outside with sticks

Hello everydog! Cosette here!!

My brother Winston probably told you that we have moved to a new place, but he probably left out all the pawsome things that we get to do here, since he is boring and does not always appreciate the finer things in life. Like sticks. And other dogs.

First, I want to give you all a proper introduction to my new pack-mate, Mr. Bones. This is a picture from when my parents first met Mr. Bones, when he was probably around 6 months old, right after my grandparents found him wandering around on the street and brought him home. You can probably see better from this picture where his name comes from.

Here he is today, almost four years later.

He has grown into a very happy, healthy puppy who loves to play almost as much as I do!

To further illustrate our size difference, here I am drinking water ...

... and here is Mr. Bones, standing inside the water bucket.

Now, the other thing I totally love about our new place is the abundance of sticks.

I love to run around with sticks ...

... get chased while running around with sticks ...

... fight Winston for sticks ...

... and play tug-o-war with sticks.

Even Winston loves playing stick tug-o-war!

Although, Winston mostly just likes to stand around under Mommy's legs when we are oustide. Like I said before, he is pretty boring.

After I get done playing all those fun games with my sticks, I also enjoy laying in the sun with my sticks and getting in several pug-naps. So far we are having a pretty fun time here. I have even heard rumors of a swimming pool in my future. I will try to make sure Winston keeps reporting on all of our great activities!
Here's lookin' at you with two eyes,

New Toy

I am so excited to see that some of my loyal readers are still out there!! Now I can tell all of you about a great new toy that I found yesterday.

This is the toy. I found it sitting on the kitchen floor, and no one else was around to play with it!

After barking at the new toy and walking around it several times, I decided it was safe to play with. Just my luck, the stray came over and decided she also wanted to play with the toy.

I watched as she stole it right out from under me!

I was finally able to grab it, and I had to find a hiding place. I thought under the table would work perfectly...

... but Cosette followed me under.

So I went to hide it between Mommy's feet ... but, she took it away!!! Traitor!! She just kept saying something about "juice everywhere" and "ants catching on fire" [Parents' Note: fire ants, another joy of living in Texas].

Snarf everydog later,

Wow it's been a looooooong time!!!

Well, I probably don't have any more loyal readers, since it has been almost A YEAR since my last post. My parents (aka "they-who-have-opposable-thumbs-with-which-to-type-my-blog-for-me") have a million excuses for their laziness - including moving a few times, Cosette eating the power cord on Mommy's laptop and us losing access to all our pictures, and their discovery of Facebook (TM), where they can post pictures of us from their phones - but I for one am not impressed. But, now that my Mommy has some extra time on her hands, and has caught up with all the guilty pleasure TV shows she may have missed over the past few years, she figured why not start posting again.

Most recently, we moved to a far away place called Texas, where it is really hot but doesn't rain nearly as much.

In Texas, we have been hanging out with these people (called "grandma and grandpa") who have a big back yard and two big dogs. Cosette is loving it. The big dogs have become her new pack. She loves to lounge in the shade with her new pack leader, Roxy.

She also loves to run around and play chase with the other big dog, named Mr. Bones.

I don't think she realizes how small she is.

Besides playing with the big dogs, she LOVES to chew on, chase, and play with sticks.

I don't hate the big yard. But I mostly enjoy hanging out with my parents inside without having the Stray around :)

And here is one of my favorite pictures from the past year - I always enjoy seeing my parents torture my sister!
Hopefully there is someone out there who will still read this, and hopefully my lazy parents will keep helping me post for awhile.
