Handling Practice

October 20, 2009

Tonight we had handling practice. It has been a long time since momma, everyone and me have been there. There was a special guest there tonight – my sister Bonnie! It was fun, cuz with her around I don’t have to do as much since momma has to practice with two dogs. The only thing is I have to share the hot dog!.

I really like having my sister around. I now have a playmate all the time and she knows how to play. We both like to grab ears or tails.  Yesterday we went to Grandma Ginger’s and had Watermelon Sunday. At first Bonnie seemed to not like it, but she finally joined in. She started a game where she would bring the rind in and momma would throw it outside. Then she brought it in again and momma threw it out. It looked like so much fun that Bailey and I joined in too.

It has been a fun week and I look forward for more. Here are some pics from tonight and yesterday. (Momma got a new camera so expect to see lots of pics of me and Bonnie!)


Wow, what a weekend!!!

October 14, 2009

So much to say and now we have pics!!!! Yippee!!! It was hard cuz the camera, and cords and everything else weren’t cooperating. Finally, momma’s human son, Ryan, had to do something with a Playstation and card readers, but we now have pics.
First, let me tell you I am one special boy, but of course everyone knows that. On Friday, I went to school with my momma so we could leave for Los Lunas right away. I stayed with her the whole time, never leaving her side. Seventh grade boys and girls can be awfully scary. They really liked me, but sometimes the attention was too much.
When we left for Los Lunas, momma let me ride in the front seat with her. I was really good, and slept in the seat the whole time. It is much more comfortable than the kennel.
We got to Los Lunas and on Saturday I was the best puppy! I mean I all ready knew that but now it is official. I also met lots of human friends!
Then my momma talked to my daddy Harry and she told him how she wanted to find me a playmate as we Cardi’s need to stick together. I like to play with my friends Sammy and Rylee, but playing with another Cardi is so much more fun. I guess my momma realized that and decided to find me a fellow Cardi. Well, after talking to daddy Harry and then momma Jinnie it was decided that my sister Bonnie would come to stay for awhile.
She came yesterday and at first she just kinda watched everyone. Now she is playing more and more. We even herded Rylee. It was fun.
Now to see about them pics.

This is my dad, PJ, and my mom, Lindy. I look like my mom!

I was a good boy this weekend. Momma Cody can’t remember all the letters, but she is excited cuz I got 4 points this weekend. I had lots of fun seeing all the different dogs and spending the weekend with my sisters and daddy. I also liked being the center of attention as I took my momma around the ring. I was the only puppy dog so of course I won that!!! I am tired and momma has to get ready to go to Los Lunas for next weekend. She said she will try and get pictures in tomorrow. Good nite!!!

It’s Been A Long Time

October 2, 2009

My poor mama. She is getting old and forgets things easily. She has forgotten to keep everyone updated on my progress. Her excuse is that she forgot all the sign-in information. I am so glad she found it cuz there is going to be a lot to talk about in the next few days!!! Right now I am sleeping in an RV with mama Jinnie and Grandma Ginger along with daddy dog PJ (he’s being mean to me, they tell me it’s a dog thing when there is a female around that is in heat. I’m just 7 months old and I don’t understand!), my half sister Frost, my sister Bailey and my cousin Sienna. We are in Alamogordo, NM getting ready for a dog show. It’s new for everyone except for Frost. Daddy dog is just here for the ride cuz he is a champion all ready! Mama Jinnie is gonna show me tomorrow cuz mama Cody has to work. She is coming up after work and she will show me on Saturday. I will all ready had my experience so I will have to show her the ropes.
I’m starting to get sleepy and I need to get my rest cuz tomorrow is a BIG day. I’m glad to be here with my sisters, but I sure miss my mama Cody. I think she might miss me too. Good night all.

My New Family

May 15, 2009

On my last post I said a little about my new family. After two days I can report on a bit more. Mama Cody say someday soon we will have a camera for me to add pictures to my blog. That way everyone can see what all of us look like.

Sammy is my new playmate. We chase each other around the house. When we first started I would slide under chairs where he couldn’t get me and I would jump out at him. Wow, I thought, I got him, there is no way he can beat me at this. Boy, was I wrong. Yesterday while we were chasing each other, he jumped on the couch. He realized that I couldn’t jump up there. So now he jumps up there and teases me. Life is not fair.
I have however found that Sammy has a tail! When I was with my littermates I use to grab their tails. I thought those days were gone. Haha – nope – Sammy has a nice tail for me to hold on too. I don’t know if he likes very much though.
Ty is still huge! I really look up to her. I wish she would stay out with us more. I don’t see what is so great about a bathtub. I did find out that I can walk under her with no problem at all. So if she stands in my way when I want to go outside or in, I don’t have to worry. I just walk between her legs and go where I want.
Speaking of going outside, mama Cody seems to be happy with the progress I am making. I don’t see what the big deal is. She keeps talking to me about training. She says we will be doing it a lot cuz I’m a “show dog”. As long as I have fun, I guess it will be okay.
I found the cats. There are two of them. I just don’t understand. I see them, I bark. Isn’t that what a dog is suppose to do???? Well I guess mama Cody would realize that. Every time I bark at them she tells me that I shouldn’t do that. Humans!
Mama Cody told me that my mama and daddy and Uncle Henry and my best friend Frost are in Colorado with Mama Jinnie. She said they are being “show dogs” this weekend. I hope they are having fun. My sister Bailey got to go along for the ride. I guess I will find out all about it when I see everybody next week.
I am glad the weekend is almost here. I hate when Mama Cody has to go to work. When she does, I have to be in my pen and I can’t play with Sammy. I do think I am adjusting well. I didn’t cry as much when she left today. I am also sleeping through the night. I feel safe cuz I sleep in my kennel next to Mama Cody’s bed. If I wake at all, I know I will find her fingers coming through the grate to pet me. Then I just go back to sleep until the alarm goes off.



First Night

May 12, 2009

Let me introduce myself. My name is Solstice Flying Ace but my friends call me Charlie. I was born on February 28 and I have 2 sisters and 1 brother. My brother went to live in Wisconsin on a farm. My sister Bonnie lives in Albq. (too big a word for me to spell) and my other sister Bailey will stay with my other mama, Jinnie.  I will get to see Bailey at least once a week and hopefully I will see Bonnie in October. 

Yesterday I went to live with my new mama. I knew her at first as Auntie Cody, but now she tells me I can call her mama since I am going to live at her house now. She says I am a lucky boy because I get to have 2 two-legged mamas, her and mama Jinnie. I am sure one lucky pup!!!

At my new house, there are 4 other four leggeds. Two are like me, that being dogs and the other 2 are something called cats. I don’t know what they are, but mama assures me I will find out in time. She says they don’t socialize much, whatever that means.  I got to meet Ty. Boy is she HUGE!!! I am use to being with others like me and the long legged fast one at mama Jinnie’s but Ty is another story. She is a German Shepard mix and weighs about 100 pounds. What is so much fun is I can walk under her when she is standing up. Mama Cody says I won’t see her much cuz she likes to lay in the bathtub.  She is also 11 years old. I guess that is old for a dog. 

Then I met Sammy. Mama Cody calls him a circus dog cuz he bounces all over the place. He is a poodle mix and he does bounce.  He seemed to like me, until he got a bone. Then he growled at me. Mama Cody got mad and said she will not tolerate that type of behavior. I don’t know what that means and I really didn’t care cuz I had a bone of my own. Later Sammy and I started playing. It was fun!!! At mama Cody’s you can run in a circle between the living room and dining room/kitchen. I would run and Sammy would come after me. I would run and sometimes slide (mama Cody has wood floors) to a small place where Sammy couldn’t go. Then I would come out and tell Sammy where I was and he would chase me again.

Then it was time to go to bed. Mama Cody put me in my crate, but then took my crate next to her bed so I would not be alone.  Ty of course sleeps in the bathtub and Sammy goes with Kenny. I don’t know who he is yet. Mama Cody says I was a good boy cuz I did all my potties outside. I don’t know what that all means, but I will keep trying to be a good boy.
