Guess who's back? Me! I know, I know... I haven't blogged for over a week! It was very unthoughtful of myself to leave you guys for so long... But no worries, I'm back!
This past week my humans have been quite busy, and I would have kept on blogging without them except that I was born with furry paws... Don't get me wrong, furry paws are wonderful, but as you can see God didn't bless me with long naked fingers like the humans... Therefore, because it is awfully hard to type with furry paws, I use my humans as my typists! And, since my typists were too busy to type, I could not blog. Does that make sense?
Now, you might wonder what I have been up to all week...
On Monday my humans took me outside and opened the doors of the big vehicle. I thought, oh boy, a car ride! My favorite! So I hopped right on in. As we drove, the humans told me that we were going to the vet. It was time for my yearly shots... And let me tell you, I'm not afraid of shots... I actually quite enjoy going to vet, because I usually get a cookie! When we got there we had to wait a few minutes. My humans saw a doggie scale on the side of the room, so they decided to weigh me. What, do you think I'm overweight or something? No, they were just curious... And I weighed at 18.8 lbs! So nope, I'm not overweight at all. In fact, my humans often think I should gain some weight... But no matter how much I eat, it just all comes out the other end a few minutes later. And that's okay with me, because the lighter I am, the higher I can fly when I jump! Speaking of flying and jumping, I went to another agility fun match yesterday, but I'll tell you about that in a moment... Anyway, after my humans weighed me, I got taken into a separate room to get my shots. Usually I get my shots when my humans are with me, but this time they took me away! It was terrifying! I can't stand being separated from my humans! They kept me in the separate room for the longest time, gave me my shots, and even trimmed my nails! I do not like having my nails trimmed. It tickles my feet. Let me tell ya, it was a scary day, and I was so lonely without my humans beside me... But then! After the longest time, the vet finally released me from that horrid room, and I ran strait to my humans! You have no idea how glad I was to see them! (Human Lizzy here. Sparky was only in the separate room for less than 5 minutes, but the way he greeted us when he came out you would have thought he'd been separated from us for 5 years! Silly guy.) Man, it felt good to be reunited again. For the rest of the day, and the days after, the shots didn't slow me down at all... In fact, I was even faster than normal at agility class the next day! Now, about agility...
Yesterday we woke up early, loaded everything in the van and took off to the park where they were holding another agility fun match. We had trouble finding out about it, but we were told that we could sign up at the park if we got there before it started... So that's exactly what we intended to do, except that when we got there we found out that everything had already filled up the day before! But, with my adorable, pleading eyes, I managed to soften up the people at the fun match and I was allowed to enter the first run, a Standard course... It was a beautiful day, and I was excited! Being excited allowed me to run fast and complete the course almost perfectly, but, being excited also allowed me to not want to lie down on the table (why is there a table in agility, anyway? I thought agility was a fast paced sport, not a sport in which you lie down and take a nap!) So, when I finally calmed down long enough to lie down on the table for 5 seconds, I took off again and missed the contact on the A-frame. I couldn't help it, I was born to fly! Who needs to touch the contact zone? Not me! Anyway, other than those two "mistakes", I did a nice, clean run. And I still got 1st place. Oh, what a wonderful day!
I have been getting really excited for the International Goody Exchange! I had to send a package to Clover, and I've never met Clover before so it's GRRRReat to have a new friend! I sent her package on Friday, so it should arrive in plenty of time... After my humans wrapped it and taped up the box, they put it by the door so they could remember to send it to Clover the next morning... Man, that box smelled good! When my humans weren't watching, I thought I'd just chew open the box and , uh, well, take a few of the pres- Er, I mean make sure the presents were okay inside the box... Unfortunately the humans caught me in the process, so I had only managed to start chewing open just one corner of the box... Oh well.
Anyway, It's been a busy week, so I'm just gonna settle down for a nap with my squeaky burger and store up my energy for tomorrow. I hope you all had a grrrrEAT weekend!
