Rainy Sunday

Hey Pups!

It's a rainy Sunday here in Pawsylvania and I thought I'd share our activities for the day.

Meadow has claimed the love seat....

Canyon's taken over the big bed...
Brook's got her ladybug on the new bed Mom bought at Costco on Friday...
I've been studying my SZK skills of photo taking...There's no way they're getting a good picture...I don't think so...Nice try...

I'm not looking!

Humans can be so annoying sometimes.
As you can see an exciting afternoon in the Kapp Pack house.

My Favorite Toy

I wanted to show you my favorite toy.  It wasn't bought specifically for me, but I've claimed it as mine.  This toy was here before me.  I've heard that Khyra gave it to the Kapp Pack.  The Little Biped really likes lady bugs and that's just what this toy is.  I've been carrying this toy around with me all over the place lately.  In the morning, I pick it up off my bed and take it with me.  Dad makes me leave it inside.  So as soon as I go, I come back in and pick it up.  I carry it back upstairs and play with it.  Then I have to leave it for a while because squeekies and plushies aren't allowed in the crates.  When Mom or Dad gets home from work, I hurry to go so I can find my lady bug.  It stays with me all night and I carry it to bed.

I really like it because it's soft, it has pull ropes and it squeeks.  What else could it possibly have to make it better.

Can Dogs Get the Flu?

Hey Pups,

Can dogs get the flu from their people?  I really hope not.  Mom and Dad said the Little Biped threw up at the grocery store last Saturday night.  She seemed to be OK after that; however, Monday night she woke up crying and said she was cold.  Turned out she was running a fever.  She went to Gama's Tuesday and threw up at Gama's house.  Tuesday night her fever was up to 103.4.  She went to Gama's again Wednesday.  That afternoon, Dad came home and said he didn't feel good. He got the thermometer and found out he had a fever too.  Thursday, Dad had to go to Maine for some meetings so despite not feeling well, he got out of bed at 3am and was on a plane before 6am.  He got home around 10:30pm.  Meanwhile, the Little Biped spent another day at Gama's.  Dad tried to get up for work this morning, but Mom insisted that he take a sick day.  So, the Little Biped and Dad stayed home.  The Little Biped hasn't thrown up since Tuesday, but now says she has an earache.  Tomorrow, she'll go to the doctor.  I am hoping that this can't be passed on because I really don't want to be stuck laying on the couch all day with pillows, blankets, and dirty tissues...  Wait a minute - that doesn't sound so bad!  Well, maybe we will get the flu from the people.  
Brook did throw up tonight.

Oh, and Canyon just's going to be a long weekend...

Here's pictures from yesterday's trip. Meadow and I got to go for a car ride to the PawsAbilities 2009 event. PawsAbilities is an annual fundraiser for Susquehanna Service Dogs (SSD). SSD starts training puppies at 8 weeks old until they are 18 months to work with disabled persons as service dogs. They spend an average of $20,000 per dog for training. Mom and Dad went to the event to support the cause and to see a friend.

Here's the Little Biped saying hello to Biloxi. I heard he lived here last summer until he found his fur-ever home.

Biloxi was entered into the Clean Plate contest. He ate the dog treat, cheese and a few other items.

Here he's waiting patiently for the next food item to try.

"Oooh, what's this?" he says. Turns out this was cheese. The next food item, celery wasn't so appetizing and Biloxi was out of the competition.

Meadow tried the agility course. She did OK except for jumping the bars.

Next we took a look around the show and met lots of new dogs. Some of these dogs could have been mistaken for something much larger. I snuck up behind this monster and sniffed its butt carefully to see what it was.

He turned around and Meadow jumped in to make sure I was OK.

As he came closer to see who we were, we both turned and ran. Not quite sure who he was, but he and his brother were both VERY big. We were told they were English Mastiffs later on.

What a busy day. We did make a few stops on the way home. The bipeds went to a place called Game Stop to buy some games for the Wii. Meadow and I decided to dump ice from Mom's drink on her car seat while they were in there. Then they stopped at a convienence store. They came out and sat at a picnic table right in front of the car so we could see them eat. The little biped had a hotdog, Mom had some kind of sandwich with lots of meat on it, and Dad had egg salad. It all looked very yummy, so we drooled on Mom's steering wheel for her. After all this fun, we passed out as seen in the last picture.

Road Trip!

I found out today that I'm going to get to go on a road trip tomorrow. Mom said it's not far but it's a car ride nonetheless! Mom, Dad and the little biped are excited about getting to see somepuppy named Biloxi. I don't know who this is but I wonder if he's cute. Do woo all know if he has a girlfriend yet???

Mom and Dad said we're going to some event in Harrisburg called Pawsabilities. It sounds like a lot of fun. Mom said it would be good for me to work on my socialization with people and other dogs. Biloxi's mom said she's entering him in the chow hound contest. I wonder how I can convince them to let me enter the contest???
In other news, Dad's been gone all week in Mississippi. This is the longest I've ever been away from dad and I really missed him.
"Yeah, Mom what do you want?"

"We're just sitting here watching for Dad"

I'll have the full report tomorrow!

Oh look, it's the resident hussy-in-training, Brook. Her belly is healing up nicely from her fixing.

I'll be waiting to hear what all you boys think!

Weather and Promised Walks

Hey Pups,

It's getting warmer.  The temperature today was in the 50s, and 60s are predicted for tomorrow.  The humans have even promised that we will get to go for a walk this weekend.  Dad will finally clean up our dog yard tomorrow which has had poopsicles frozen to the ground all winter, and he is getting the lawn mower ready for the summer.  I'm very excited that they will finally pay some attention to us.  All week, its been Wii this and Wii that, but there hasn't been any we time involving us dogs.  In fact right now, Dad is finally getting to writing this blog post that I've been clawing him about all week and ignoring the fact that the little biped has been in bed for 45 minutes and we haven't gotten our dinner yet.  He doesn't get that we can't tell time and understand that she went to bed an hour early so our dinner isn't really late yet.

Looking forward to lots of outdoor activities with the warmer weather this weekend...

Kisses, Skyboy

Snow Day

Hey Pups,

Turns out everyone got a three-day weekend.  The snow had started falling around 4 am this morning.  We woke Dad up when it started so we could go out and check it out right away.  Dad wasn't too pleased with getting up at 4 am so we could play in the snow.

At 6, his alarm went off and he got out of bed to get ready for work.  Mom found out school was on a 2-hour delay so she went back to sleep and had Dad reset her alarm for 7:30.  Dad left for work a little earlier than usual.  After picking up some cardboard boxes from the neighbors yard that had blown around in the wind overnight and putting them back with our garbage, he got in the car.  Twenty minutes later, he was back.  Turns out, he had gone 2 miles towards his 27 mile trip to work.  It had taken him 10 minutes and he slid around a bit too much for his liking.  He got home, and sent his boss and HR department an email that he was using a sick day for the snow.  Shortly after, Mom got a call that school had changed from a 2-hour delay to closed.

Mom said she hoped the new Wii would show up sooner than later so that they could spend the day playing.  We were really excited because the last box that got delivered to the house had a new collar and leash for Brook, new leash for Canyon, new bed for Brook and a new dish for her too.  We were hoping that this Wii thing was something for us.

A few minutes later, we heard a truck outside.  Woo-woo, the Wii!  Oh, darn - just the trash truck.

Mom, looking for something to do, started to clean out the cupboards and figuring out if there was old food in there which wasn't any good anymore.  She found some chocolate chips and the little biped asked for cookies.  Mom told her that she could have cookies, but someone would have to help her make them.  Mom graciously volunteered Dad for that job.

Brook thought that the cookies smelled really good and wanted to try.  She didn't know we wouldn't get any because chocolate isn't for doggies.

Around 2pm, the big brown truck showed up!  The Wii got here!

Here's the little biped getting to play.

The Wii hasn't been off since it got here.  The little biped was so tired out by bed time from all the jumping around that she was doing that she went right to sleep as soon as her head hit the pillow.

Well, back to watching the bipeds play sports games.

We were doing our duty for the Squirrel Patrol this morning.....even though we aren't official members. This was happening right outside our dining room window. I really think he was trying to figure out how to get into our homestead.

Look at him watching me...
He's plotting to overtake the bird homestead...Can you believe this???Look at him doing more plotting...
I was able to catch him in action. Be aware some portions of the video are very disturbing and may not be appropriate for young canine and feline eyes...

I know we can win this fight!

Pee ess: I may need to recruit more members to my court to quell the squirrel invasion!
