Turn up your volume and listen to my tunes..wooooof!

I am dog. I believe in unconditional love. I do not settle for infatuation or puppy love. I believe in true love to the end. I am a life-long lover who will lie at your feet, on the bed, by your chair, at your side. I am dog. I insist on your love. I will stay on a grave of a lover until my end. I believe in commitment. When we have chosen each other, I will be there for you with plenty. Out of my heart flows life and love. You fill my life with abundance and I am fulfilled. Unconditional love is the highest gift. I am committed to love.

My week in review!

Kirby here!
Well it's been quite a week so I thought I would wrap up my Sunday night by sharing with you my favorite moments!
First off, on Tuesday I got the Paw Hide Puzzle I won from Bocci! Not only were mom and I excited, but the UPS guy who delivered the box said that there must be some smart dog living here to be able to do that kind of puzzle, well of course I told him it was ME! Here is a picture of me with the puzzle:Below is a pic of me working it. Mom said I had to start out with just one cup, but as of today I am doing three and may try for four tonight!! Mom said I was so funny because it took me awhile to realize the treat stayed in the puzzle. I took the cup off with my mouth and would go running off with it, but there was no treat in the cup, then I realized where the treat is, now I'm a pro!I had so much fun with this that mom said we should take it over to Scooter's house tonight. Scooter is a beagle mix who is 15 years old!! But she could still do the puzzle and had fun with it too:Mom said we will bring it over to Grandpa and Grandma's house for Ollie to try too. Then Friday night when mom came home from work, she said we had company coming! My Aunt Lori and the kids were coming over and Aunt K and little B and Scooter were too! So everyone came over and we had pizza and Aunt Lori and the kids spent the night. They were supposed to go home Saturday but look what happened:Yep, not necessarily a blizzard, but over here in West Michigan they call it the Lake Effect Snow Machine! The roads were awful Saturday so Aunt Lori and the kids stayed one more night and when we woke up in this morning it was -7 degrees out! BRRRR!!!! It was really sunny and pretty, but so COLD! The kids really wanted to go out and play, but it definitly had to warm up a bit. So we played indoors. Mom thought it would be fun for me to try and jump over the was so much fun. I did this like a bazillion times! Look at me fly over the kids:So we did this and some of my tricks and eventually it was warm enough (if you consider 15 degrees warm) to go outside. The kids and I put our coats on and out we went. The kids had fun on top of the snow bank and sliding down the other side, so I had to go and check it out. Below is a pic of me jumping on the snow bank:
But it was so cold out there that when I got to the top of the snow bank, my paws were freezing up. That's Emily in the pic below trying to help me (can you see my tongue?) hee hee!:Yeah it was too cold in the snow for me, so I stayed on the plowed parking lot. I walked around and checked pee mail and stuff and horsed around with the kids a bit:
Well, we weren't out very long and it was time for my Aunt Lori and the kids to go home. I really liked spending time with these kids, they are a lot of fun and like to make me do my tricks! So after they left mom decided it was time to get my new window seat together. My mom got an old hamper from a family member and thought it would make a great window seat for me in the bedroom. She put a rubber backed rug over it so I'd have a little cushion and then threw a blanket over it...pretty cool huh:

Yeah, it was a great week, kind of on the cold side. Mom and I didn't get out for too many walks but we played a lot inside and worked on my puzzle and other brain games. The are calling for even more snow this week, but hopefully it will be warmer!
