How do you all like the new look? Now that summer is over, school has started, and autumn is just around the corner, I decided to change the blog to look more fall-ish. I hope you all like it!

Sorry I haven't been blogging much lately. We've been quite busy. School has started again for Lizzy and her siblings. I'm so glad my humans are home schooled, so I can stay with them all day. I just started agility lessons again. I was going to take classes in the summer too, but they were canceled because not enough dogs signed up. So I'm glad to be doing agility again! We also just went to the beach on Saturday. I chased my ball non-stop for about 4 hours! But as soon as I got home, I fell asleep. Lizzy had to bath me, and I didn't even bother to run away and hide this time. I just hopped in the tub, lay down, put my head on the edge, closed my eyes and slept as she bathed me. Yesterday we went to Rocky Point Park, and I had a pretty good time there too. We had supper there, and I stole some fries. They were very good! I met a bunch of doggies there, too. And today Lizzy and I practiced agility, cuddled, and now here I am. So that's some of the stuff I've been doing lately... But quite a while ago I was tagged by a couple doggies, so I might as well do what they said...

First, I was tagged by Ruby! I'm supposed to list 5 of my favorite foods, and then my human Lizzy has to do the same. Oh boy, this is gonna be hard! I love all foods (except for dog food).

1. Squash peals. They're actually really good! Has any other dog here tried them? They're the best food ever!
2. Cheese! Every dog has to love cheese. My humans don't give me very much though because they say it makes me do stinkies...?
3. Potatoe chips. Crunchy and satisfying.
4. Peanut butter sandwiches. They're a beautiful, chewy type of food.
5. Grass! I love grass. One of my favorite things to do is graze in a field with tall, green grass. Sometimes Marble (One of the cats in the family) and I will graze together in the backyard.

Okay, so those are just a few of my favorite foods. Lizzy also likes the same foods (Except for the grass, and she says the squash peals are okay if you put on lots of cinnamon and suger, but generally she'd prefer the actual squash rather the the peal). Anyway, here are Lizzy's favorite foods!

1. Pasta. Any kind.
2. Fruit. Any kind.
3. Pie. Any kind.
4. Veggies. Any kind.
5. Cookies. Any kind.

Lizzy will eat pretty much any kind of food, like me! Okay, now Bernard has tagged me to play this game of Scategories. Here are the rules:

Use the 1st letter of your name to answer each of the questions. They must be real places, names, things ... If you can't think of anything, skip it. You CAN'T use your name for the boy/girl name question. You take the first letter of your first name, and then answer the questions using only that letter.

Okay, here goes!

What is your name? Sparky
4 letter word: Song
Vehicle: Saturn
TV Show: Um... I don't think I can name one! I'd ask Lizzy, but she never watches TV.
City: Surrey, B.C.
Boy Name: Samson
Girl Name: Sally
Alcoholic Drink: Sangria
Occupation: Student
Something you wear: Socks
Celebrity: I can't think of any at the moment...
Food: Spaghetti
Something found in a bathroom: Soap
Reason for being late: Stuck in traffic
Cartoon Character: Scooby Doo
Something You Shout: Stop!

I won't tag anyone today, so if anyone who hasn't done the 5 favorite foods or the scategories wants to do it, go ahead! Have a good week everydog!

Hi Sparky,

Eh..hh.. can I ask? What type of soup do you find in the bathroom? :p Just kidding. I guess it must be just a typo but we had a good laugh over it.

Hi Sparky
We like the new look blog and also liked reading about your favourite foods and your "S" answers. Squash peel sounds interesting - never tried it but its a vegie and we like a lot of vegies so if we get the chance one day we may just try some.

Hey Sparky,
We love your new background. Mama copied the image, hope you don't mind. Sounds like you had an awesome fun time this weekend. And you even slept while you got a bath??? heheheheh! Agility sounds so fun. We wish we could do it but Mama doesn't think she would hold up with all of her arthritis. We hope you & Lizzy have a great week!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!

Hi, Sparky
I like a lot the new look of your blog! According to the season!!
Sure you will enjoy your agility classes. Let us know how they're going, ok?
Have a good night

Orion said...

Oooooo....I like the new background. My mom says she likes it too because fall is her favorite season. This will be my first fall! I can't wait to play around and jump in the leaves. Oh yeah and MMMMMMM...CHEESE!

Rose said...

We LOVE grass, we like to graze in the yard too. Grass is so tasty, and it's always available. It helps out when we get a meal we really don't care for, we can always eat grass. Don't know much about those other foods, except cheese. We had it a couple of times, but we think we don't get it for the same reason as you.
Have fun at your classes!
