Dad woke up at 6:45 and got dressed. Then he let me out of my kennel and we said hi to each other. Afterwards dad fed me my breakfast and then he surfed the Internet. When I finished eating I laid on the floor next to dad and waited for mom to get up. Mom woke up at 7:40 and was surprised that she didn't hear dad get up. Mom got dressed and made the bed. Then she said good morning to dad and me. Afterwards she made breakfast for dad and herself. Dad had toast and mom had maple and brown sugar oatmeal and they both had chocolate almond milk. After everyone was fed mom took me outside so I could take care of business. When I finished we went back inside to dad. Once inside mom put a cooler together and then we loaded up into the car. Dad tries to take the Minnie for a spin at the beginning of the month. Today was the beginning of the month so we went to the storage center to pick up the Minnie. We drove the Minnie around a few miles and then we put it back into storage. On the way home we stopped by a oil change place so we could get the car inspected. While we were waiting for the car to get inspected mom walked me around the grassy area. Then we went back to dad and the guys working there liked dogs so they paid attention to me. I ate up all the attention they were getting to me. After the car was finished getting inspected we went home. By the time we got home it was almost lunchtime. Dad decided that he was going to check the bleach level of our septic system at the first of the month. So mom and dad checked the level out and then they added a couple of bottles of bleach. I hung out with them while they did this. Then we relaxed for a half hour and then mom made lunch. She made soup for dad and herself and she gave me a little snack. After lunch mom played computer games for an hour and a half. While mom was playing games dad finished straightening up his cables. I went outside and sunned for a half hour and then I went back inside and slept. After mom finished playing games she went to dad's work room to find out what he was doing. Dad was starting on another project, which was to fix the binding on their water ski. While they were working on this project I slept under the desk. Mom helped him as much as she could but when he didn't need her help she decided to do a half hour workout. After she finished her workout she made the dish she was taking to square dancing. Today she was taking stuff for tacos. She browned up a pound of Italian pork sausage and a pound of beef. In the beef she added some seasoning. Then she put shredded lettuce in a bowl and she shredded some cheddar cheese. She put the Colby Jack cheese in a container. After mom finished this she rested a little while and then she made dinner for dad and herself. They had a pepperoni and ham sandwich on a hot dog bun and a bag of chips for their dinner. Mom fed me my food for my dinner. After dinner mom and dad got ready to go to the dance. They went to the Gober Party House earlier than they usually do because they wanted to help Louis. They left me about 6:00 but as they were leaving mom put me in my kennel and gave me a snack. She said good-bye and then they left me. They got back to me about 10:00. They had a fantastic time at the dance. There were three squares and mom and dad danced all the square dancing sets except for one. The one they sat out on was because they relieve a couple at the door so they could dance. Mom's tacos were a success and everyone had a great time. When they got back to me I was in the dark so dad turned on a light and then he let me out of my kennel. We all said our hellos and then mom and dad got changed out of their square dancing outfits. Once they changed mom and dad had some of the ice cream they made yesterday and mom gave me a little bit of the ice cream. The ice cream was delicious. After everyone was finished eating their ice cream mom took me outside so I could take care of business. When we got back inside we relaxed for about an hour and then we called it a night. We had a very good day and we're tried so I'll say good night.

Today dad woke up at 6:45 and got dressed. Then he came out of the bedroom and let me out of my kennel. After I crawled out of my kennel dad and I said hi to each other. When we finished dad fed me my breakfast. While I ate my breakfast dad surfed the Internet. When I finished eating my breakfast I laid on the floor next to dad and waited for mom to wake up. Mom finally woke up at 7:30 and got dressed. When she finished getting dressed she made the bed and then she said good morning to dad and me. Afterwards she made breakfast for dad and herself. Mom and dad both had toast and a glass of almond milk for breakfast. After everyone was fed mom did the dishes and then she took me outside so I got take care of business. When I finished we went inside the house. Mom played computer games for about an hour and then she went to the Sammons Community Center to Sweatin to the Oldies. As she was leaving she said good-bye to dad and me. While mom was working out dad and I hung out together. Dad surfed the Internet and I slept and went outside to wait for mom. Mom was gone for an hour and a half. When she got home I was laying in front of the door in the garage that went inside of the house. Mom said hi to me and let me inside the house. Mom teased dad about making me stay outside in garage the whole time she was gone. He said he had just let me outside. Mom and dad are proud of me because everyday I'm getting better at trusting the invisible fence. I'm using more of the yard and walking around the house by myself. After saying hi to dad and me mom made lunch. Today for lunch mom heated up the leftover taco meat from last night's dance and dad and mom had tacos for lunch. Mom gave me a little bit of the meat because it was pork sausage. Along with the taco they shared a bag of chips. After lunch mom baked some cookies to take with her tonight when dad and her go square dancing in Killeen. The cookies she made were Key Lime and Blue Raspberry. Dad suggested to make half of each box of cookies. Mom told him that it could be done because you can't divide an egg in half. He said sure it can be done. He beaten an egg and divided it in half and he also divided each box of cookies mix in half. Mom mixed each half and baked the cookies and they came out perfect. Once again dad proved mom wrong he divided an egg in half. After mom baked the cookies she spent the rest of the afternoon cleaning the house. Grandma is coming to visit us tomorrow and mom wanted to have a clean house. While mom did the baking and cleaned house dad surfed the Internet to find some more hats and to do some research on different homemade ice cream recipes. I slept and went outside a couple of times to sun. Mom was surprised I stayed outside by myself. When mom finished cleaning the house she made some potato salad. When it was time for dinner mom made a frozen pizza for dad and her dinner. The frozen pizza was a Hawaiian Style Pizza. Mom fed me my food and little bit of her pizza. It was delicious. After dinner mom and dad relaxed for a little while and then they got dressed to go square dancing. As they were leaving mom put me in my kennel and gave me a snack. Then she said good-bye and they would see me later. At the dance there were three squares and mom and dad dance most of the sets. Mom and dad danced all the square dancing sets and mom danced a couple of line dances. There was a lot of food at the dance. Mom's cookies were a hit. They didn't bring any home with them They had a super time and the ladies loved dad's hat. They were gone for a few hours. Today they didn't go too far so they got home pretty early. When they got home mom let me out of my kennel and I said hi to mom and dad. Afterwards they changed clothes. When they finished changing they had ice cream for their dessert. We had a great day and mom is tired so I'll say good night.

Today was a special day because Grandma came from Tucson to visit for 10 days. Dad woke up at his usual time and got dressed. Afterwards he let me out of my kennel so I could say hi. While I was eating dad surfed the Internet and when I finished I laid on the floor next to him waiting for mom to get up. Mom got up at 7:30 and got dressed. Afterwards she made the bed and then she joined dad and me. After saying hi to dad and me she made breakfast for dad and herself. They both had toast and a glass of almond milk. After everyone was fed mom took me out so I could take care of business. When I finished taking care of business we went back inside. Then mom and dad went to town to pick up a few things. Today they left me at home so I could get use to my surroundings. They were gone for a couple of hours. They went to The Home Depot, HEB, UPS Store and Good Will. When they got back to me the UPS guy had delivered a package and I was very happy to see them. I guess I scared the UPS guy because he left the package by the garage instead of on the porch where I was. I was happy to see them but I also was afraid to walk to them. Mom told me it was ok and I went to her. Afterwards we all went inside the house. Once mom put everything away mom made lunch. She heated up the leftover pizza for dad and herself. She gave me a snack. After lunch mom did the dishes and then she finished cleaning the house for Grandma's visit. Dad and I stayed out of her way. Dad hung a couple of fire extinguishers, a towel ring and a tie rank for his suspenders. I laid on the driveway to sun and I slept inside under the desk. Mom was so proud that I stayed outside and sunned all by myself. Mom finished cleaning the house about 4:30. Mom and dad had to leave the house about 5:30 to go to Waco to pick up Grandma at the airport. So they had a sandwich for dinner and mom fed me my food for my dinner. After dinner they left. Today mom and dad left me outside with a snack while they were gone. I stayed on the porch the whole time they were gone. They came back to me at 8:30 because once they picked up Grandma they stopped at McDonald's for dinner. Because Grandma had eaten dinner. This time when mom and dad returned I got off the porch and went to them without being called. I guess I'm doing a lot better on my fence. I'm still not sure but I'm using more of the yard. After we all said our hellos we went inside. Once inside mom showed Grandma the house. Then everyone sat down and visited. Mom dished out a bowl of ice cream to everyone. She gave me a little bit of the ice cream. We visited with Grandma until 11:00. We had a great day and now it's time for me to say good night.

Sunday May 4, 2014

Today mom surprised me because she woke up the same time dad did. After they both got dressed they came out of the bedroom to where I was sleeping. I was sound asleep laying on my back in my kennel when dad opened the door. As soon as I heard the door opening I rolled over. It took me a little while to wake up but when I finally was awake I crawled out of my kennel. Then dad fed me my breakfast. While I was eating dad surfed the Internet and mom made breakfast. Mom was making breakfast when Grandma came out of her bedroom. When I saw her I said good morning to her. Mom made breakfast for dad, Grandma and herself. Dad had toast Grandma and mom had maple and brown sugar oatmeal. Mom fixed Grandma a cup of French Vanilla coffee and mom and dad had a glass of chocolate almond milk. After everyone was fed mom did the dishes and then she took me outside to take care of business. Afterwards we went back inside the house. Once we were inside mom baked some cookies to take to square dancing classes. Aunt Louise showed up at the house about 9:00. While we were waiting for Aunt Louise Grandma paid attention to me. Mom, dad and Grandma visited. When Aunt Louise came we all visited with each other. A couple of days ago Aunt Louise called and told dad that she was having computer problems so dad asked her to bring her computer with her when she came. Dad also told her to bring her phone device so he could register it and pay for the yearly payment. Aunt Louise has been getting free phone service for a few years and now her provider is going to charge $35.00 a year for the service. At Christmas time mom and dad had left a lot of their Christmas presents at Aunt Louise's house because we were living in the Minnie and we didn't have any room so she brought them with her. I was real happy to see her when she arrived. This was the first time she ever saw our new house so it was very exciting to show her the house. When ever Grandma visited us she brings a lot of snacks. This visit was no different she brought Aunt Louise and us some chocolate chip cookies, fudge and peanut brittle. So while dad was working on Aunt Louise's computer and phone and everyone was visiting we snacked on the goodies Grandma brought us. When it was time for lunch mom barbecued Hatch Chili sausage links. Along with the sausages we had potato salad. Mom gave me a little snack for my lunch. The goodies and lunch were delicious. After lunch we continued our visit until about 1:30 when Aunt Louise and Grandma left to go to Aunt Louise's house because mom and dad had square dancing lessons today. We said good-bye to Aunt Louise and Grandma and then mom and dad got ready to go. Today mom and dad let me stay outside while they went to their class. As they were leaving mom gave me a snack and water on the porch. Then mom said good-bye to me and told me they would be back later. Along with the cookies mom took Grandma's goodies because mom is trying to loose the weight she put on the last few months. She had put on 15 pounds of the 40 pounds she had lost and now she wants to take off the weight she had put on. Mom and dad met Louis and Dorothy at Scott and White to car pull with them. The class had two squares and they learned a couple of new calls. At Allemande Hall there are some square dancing clothes for sale. The clothes are from ladies that had been square dancers and wanted to get rid of them. The clothes have a tag on them on what it cost and if they don't have a tag on them there's a sign that tells you how much it cost. Mom bought a skirt set for $10.00 and a petticoat for $20.00. If the item has a tag on it and tells you how much it cost that money goes to the person that's on the tag. But if the item doesn't have a tag that money goes to the hall. Mom and dad had a great time in class. Mom and dad got home to me at 6:00 and I was very excited to see them. I was on the porch but when mom called me I went to her. Today I went to her a lot faster and I wasn't as scared of the flags so I'm differently doing a lot better. after saying hi to mom and dad we went inside and mom tried on her new outfit. It fit her perfectly and it was very beautiful. Dad really liked it and so do I. Afterwards mom and dad changed their clothes and mom made dinner. The dinner was easy for mom because mom and dad had what they had for lunch. Mom fed me my food and it was delicious. After dinner mom took me outside and I took care of business. When I finished we went back inside and mom and dad streamed a movie and a couple of episodes of Alpha House. Afterwards we called it a night. We had a super day and now we're tired. So now I'll say good night.

Monday April 5, 2014

Today mom and dad woke up at 6:30 and got dressed. Mom surprised dad because she got up the same time as he did and she usually sleep an extra hour. Dad was finished getting dressed before mom so he made the bed and fed me my breakfast. Before he fed me my breakfast he let me out of my kennel and said hi to me. While I was eating mom finished getting dressed and made breakfast for dad and herself. Dad had toast and mom had cinnamon and spice oatmeal. They both had a glass of chocolate almond milk. After everyone was fed mom did the dishes and then she took me outside to take care of business. I went outside but I didn't have to take care of business. When mom realized I didn't have to go we went back inside. About 9:00 mom went to The Sammons Center for the class Sweatin to the Oldies. The class didn't start until 10:00 but mom wanted to so the treadmill for a little while to warm up. As she was getting into the car I followed her because I wanted to go for a ride. Mom told me that I had to stay with dad and she would be back in a couple of hours. I stayed outside for a short time and then dad let me back inside. While mom was at the gym dad and I worked on Aunt Louise's old television. Dad was trying to figure out if he could fix it. Dad did some research and found out that a lot of people had the same problem the same type of television Aunt Louise had. The Internet also gave him some suggestions on how to fix the television and what parts he needed. Mom is really enjoying her class because it works her whole body with stretches and light weights. When mom was leaving the gym she called dad and told him that she was on her way home. Mom finally returned to dad and me at 11:30. I was happy to see her and went up to her to say hi. After we said hi to each other and she said hi to dad she made lunch. For lunch mom and dad had soup and mom gave me a little snack. After lunch mom did the dishes and we waited for Aunt Louise and Grandma to show up. While we were waiting mom and I sat outside for a little while and dad joined us. At 1:00 Aunt Louise called and said she wasn't going to come out and bring Grandma back to our house. She said by the time she drove all the way to Belton she would have to turn around and go back home. We were disappointed because we had been waiting for them and yesterday when they were leaving we thought that Aunt Louise should have told us she wasn't going to come back to our house. If she had told us we would have planned our day a little different. If they weren't coming back dad would have gone into town with mom and stopped at Radio Shack while she was working out. Now they had to go back to town to go to Radio Shack to buy some parts for the television dad's working on. When mom and dad went back to town I went along with them. We were gone about an hour and half. When we got home dad worked on the television, mom did some Sudoku and I slept. Dad found out that the parts he bought at Radio Shack didn't fix the problem so he went back to the Internet. He did some more research and decided to order some parts that were suggested to buy. At 4:15 mom and I went outside to barbecue some seasoned chicken for our dinner. It was going to take her about 40 minutes to barbecue so I got bored and went inside to keep dad company. After the chicken was cooked mom came back inside and we had dinner. Mom and dad had the chicken and some potato salad for their dinner. Mom fed me my food and a little bit of her chicken. After everyone was fed mom did the dishes. The rest of the night we relaxed. Mom and dad streamed a couple episodes of Selfridge and a couple episodes of Alpha House starring John Goodman. It's a comedy about the Republicans in The House of Representatives. While they watched the shows I slept. We had a relaxing day and now we're tired so I'll say good night. Have fun!!!!!!!!!!!

Today mom and dad woke up at 6:45 and they both crawled out of bed at the same time. Dad got dressed while mom made the bed. After mom finished making the bed she got dressed. When dad finished getting dressed he let me out of my kennel. While I was climbing out of the kennel mom came out of the bedroom and said good morning to me. After I said hi to mom she fed me my breakfast. While I was eating my breakfast mom made dad and her breakfast. Dad surfed the Internet. Dad had usual which was toast and a glass of chocolate almond milk. Mom had apple and cinnamon oatmeal and a glass of chocolate hazelnut. After everyone was fed mom let me outside to take care of business. When I finished mom let me back inside. Aunt Louise brought Grandma back to us but they didn't arrive until 10:15. While we waited for them mom and dad took me for a walk to the lake. It was windy today so the lake was rough. The wind was blowing so hard that the lake had water caps. But that didn't stop me from going swimming. While at the lake we saw a few guys fishing off the banks. I wanted to say hi to them but dad didn't let me because I was wet so I swam the opposite direction. While I was swimming dad took the temperature of the lake which was 68 degrees. After I finished swimming mom and dad dried me off and then we headed back to our house. When we got home it was still too early for Aunt Louise and Grandma so we relaxed. I slept under the desk, mom vacuumed the house and dad did a little research on the Internet. When Grandma and Aunt Louise finally arrived I was very excited and went up to them and said hi to them. Afterwards Aunt Louise and Grandma told us what they did yesterday. They shopped until 3:30 and then they slept on and off the rest of the day because they were tired. Aunt Louise modeled her beautiful new skirt she bought yesterday at Good Will. Grandma modeled her pretty new hat she bought. It sound like they had a great shopping day yesterday. About 11:00 mom went outside and barbecued some seasoned pork ribs for lunch. Along with the ribs they potato salad. Mom gave me a little snack. After lunch dad took mom, Grandma and Aunt Louise for a ride. While they were gone I slept under the desk. Dad drove around Belton to show both Grandma and Aunt Louise. Before going to town dad drove them to the ramp. While at the ramp they saw a few Corps of Engineers boats doing a water activity. They had setup a course in the cove and was driving their boats around it. After watching the boats dad drove them down to Temple Lake Park to show Grandma the beach and the park. After driving around the park dad drove to Belton and showed Aunt Louise and Grandma Belton. They had a fun time. When they got back mom was very happy with me because I wasn't on the furniture and had been sleeping under the desk the whole time they were gone. After everyone said hi to me they sat down and visited. While they were visiting the ate Oreo cookies. About 3:30 Aunt Louise decided to go home. She was tired and she didn't want to drive when it was dark. The real reason was she had left my Cousin Autumn at home and she wanted to get back to her. After Aunt Louise left mom workout for a half hour on her WII. Grandma and I slept and dad surfed the Internet. After her workout she put the WII away and relaxed until it was time for dinner. Then she made Belgium waffles for dinner and fed me my food for my dinner. After dinner Grandma did dishes and then we made homemade strawberry ice cream. When ever Grandma visits mom and her make ice cream because Grandma likes doing this. They mad two batches of ice cream. Afterwards we went outside on the back porch and visited. While we were visiting we saw fireflies and a deer walking through our yard. We watched the deer for a long time until it got spooked and hopped away. When it started to get dark we went inside and relaxed the rest of the evening. We had a great day with Aunt Louise and Grandma. Now it's time to say good night. Pictures of Grandma visit will be posted when Grandma leaves.

I was going to wait until Grandma was gone before posting any pictures but I changed my mind. I decided to put some pictures up each day. But on my Photo Page all of Grandma Visit pictures will be posted when she leave.

Today mom and dad woke up at 6:45 and got dressed. Afterwards they let me out of my kennel and we all said good morning. Then mom fed me my breakfast and made breakfast for dad and herself. Dad had toast and chocolate almond milk and mom had apple cinnamon oatmeal and hazel nut drink. After everyone was fed mom took me outside to take care of business. When I was finished we went back inside. While dad was surfing the Internet, I was chilling out and mom was playing in the kitchen Grandma woke up. We all said our good morning and then mom made breakfast for Grandma. She made Grandma apple and cinnamon Oatmeal with French Vanilla coffee. Aunt Louise leaves in Round Rock and it's pretty far away so today she decided to stay home and not come out until tomorrow. About 9:00 mom, dad and Grandma went to town. I was left at home today was another special day because I wasn't put in my kennel. I've been good when I was left in the house so today they left me in the house. As they were leaving mom gave me a snack and told me that they would be back later. While they were gone I slept under the desk. Dad dropped mom off at the Sammons Center so she could do the Sweatin to the Oldies class. While mom workout dad took Grandma to the Temple Railroad and Heritage Museum. The Temple Railroad and Heritage Museum was completed in 1911 It's a working Amtrak Station and tells the history of the railroad and topics relating to local and regional history. The original museum was located in the 1907 Moody Gulf, Colorado & Santa Fe depot in 1996. It was relocated to the Temple Santa Fe depot 2000 after the depot was restored. Dad and Grandma had a super time touring the railroad cars and museum. After they did their self-guided tour they picked mom up at the Sammons Center. Afterwards they came home to me. I was very excited I met them at the garage door that leads into the house. I said hi all three of them. When we finished saying hi mom made lunch. Mom made everyone a chef salad. Everyones salad was delicious. Mom gave me a little ham as a snack. After lunch they left me again. I don't mind because mom leaves me with a snack and lets me wonder in the house. But I just sleep and keep cool. They went to the Bell County Museum. The Bell County Museum was on the history of the Bell County area. It has a gorgeous sculpture in the front. It was tall and had a lot of cattle, cowboys doing different activities and a train on the top. As they walked through the museum mom and Grandma played with a water pump and an old iron and an ironing board. It was a beautiful museum and didn't cost anything. They all had a wonderful time. They got home to me about 3:00. Once again I was excited to see them. After we all said our hellos mom took me outside and then she worked out for a half hour on her WII Fit. Afterwards it was time for dinner. Mom made Italian sausage patties with potato salad. Mom fed me my food for my dinner. After dinner Grandma and mom did the dishes. Today mom and dad streamed a concert on the television. It was a Seth Glier Concert. He performed with two other guys. One of the guys was blind and he played the sax and keyboard. It was an hour concert and very entertaining. Seth is a singer-songwriter and players the guitar and piano.  After the concert we visited until it was time to go to bed. While visiting we had dessert, which was the homemade strawberry ice cream mom and Grandma made yesterday. Mom gave me a little bit of it. We had a very good day and now everyone are tired so I'll say good night.

Thursday May 8, 2014

Today mom and dad woke up at 6:45 and got dressed. When they finished they let my out of my kennel and we all said our hellos. Afterwards mom fed me my breakfast and then she made breakfast. Dad had toast and almond milk and mom had toast and hazel nut drink. After everyone was fed we relaxed. Dad surfed the Internet, mom played Sudoku and computer games and I slept. Grandma was tired so she slept until 8:30 and then she said hi to us all. Mom made Grandma a cup of French Vanilla coffee. Aunt Louise showed up at 9:00 with my Cousin Autumn and an overnight bag and a hurricane cake. After saying hi to Aunt Louise and Cousin Autumn we all had a piece of cake. The cake was delicious. While eating a piece of cake we visited with each other. About 9:45 everyone left Cousin Autumn and me to go to town. As they were leaving Aunt Louise put Cousin Autumn in my kennel and mom gave both of us a treat. Today is a shopping day. It's suppose to rain today but we're not sure when. The first couple of shops were Temple Good Will and Scott and White Hospice thrift stores. While in Good Will mom bought a white blouse and Grandma bought a skirt. After paying for this items they went to the Hospice Thrift store. While shopping mom bought a pair of square dancing shoes and dad bought a couple of ties. Grandma bought another skirt. After they finished shopping at the thrift stores they went to downtown Belton. They walked through a few stores: Real Deals on Home Decor, Chisholm Trail Accents, My Giving Trees and McWha Book Store. They had a great time walking through the shops and they saw a lot of unique and rustic things. The bookstore was very nice and had a lot of books. As they were going leaving the bookstore it started to rain so Aunt Louise and Grandma stayed at the bookstore while mom and dad went to get the car. The last stop they did was at HEB so mom could pick up a couple of things we ran out of. By the time they got back to me and Cousin Autumn it was time for lunch. They let Cousin Autumn out of my kennel. We both were very excited to see everyone so we ran to everyone and said hi to them. Afterwards mom made lunch. I forgot what mom made for lunch but I do remember mom gave Autumn and me a snacks. After lunch the rain slowed down so mom and Aunt Louise took Cousin Autumn and me for a walk. We didn't go too far because mom heard thunder and didn't want to get caught in the rain. When we got back mom made some enchiladas to take with dad and her square dancing tonight. The rest of the afternoon we visited with Aunt Louise and Grandma. For dinner mom microwaved bacon and everyone had bacon wraps. Along with the wraps they had chips. After dinner mom and dad got ready to go square dancing. Tonight the dance is in South Mountain. There is an hour Plus workshop there before the actual dance. Mom and dad both decided to where a hat and they were glad they did because Coryell County Squares were having a hat dance. They didn't know so they were happily surprised. Grandma and Aunt Louise stayed home with Cousin Autumn and me. While mom and dad were gone Aunt Louise and Grandma watched television and had a fun time visiting and sleeping. Cousin Autumn and I slept. Mom and dad met Louis and Belinda at Scott and White parking lot and drove up to the dance with them. On the way to the dance it started to rain and it rained hard most of the way. When they got to the dance it had slowed down so they didn't get wet. But a lot of other people got soaked wet. The workshop had three squares and the actual dance had four squares. The last set of dances mom and dad were in a square with their club caller Dale Smith and he decided to mess with Ed Larder the caller tonight. Dale called the calls for their square and Ed called the calls for the other squares. Mom and dad had a ball at the dance. They saw a lot of great hats. Mom's enchiladas were a smash. When they got home it was about 11:30 and Aunt Louise was a sleep but Grandma was awake. After we visited for about an hour we all went to bed. So I guess I'll say good night.

Today mom and dad woke up at 6:45 and got dressed. After they finished getting dressed they came out and said good morning to Aunt Louise, Cousin Autumn and me. Afterwards mom fed Cousin Autumn and me our breakfast. Then she made breakfast for everyone, which was toast. Aunt Louise had a cup of French Vanilla coffee with her toast. Mom and dad had a glass of chocolate almond milk. After everyone was fed Grandma woke up and said good morning to everyone. While she was saying hello to everyone mom made her a cup of French Vanilla coffee. She decided to have a piece of Aunt Louise's cake for her breakfast. After Grandma was finished eating everyone went back to town because yesterday it rained and there were a few other shops that dad wanted Grandma and Aunt Louise to visit. Once again as they were leaving Aunt Louise put Cousin Autumn in my kennel and I was left in the house to keep her company. Mom gave both of us a little snack. They visited a few shops downtown. They shopped for an hour and half. They visited antique shop and a few clothing shops. They didn't buy anything but they had fun shopping. After shopping they went to Pam Smith retirement reception. Pam is Dale's wife and square dances with mom and dad. She had worked for Scott and White for 38 years and mom and dad wanted to congratulate her. The reception was very nice and had sandwiches, a fruit tray, a vegetable tray, chips, punch and a cake. The cake was cool because half of it was vanilla cake and the other half was chocolate cake. While there mom, Aunt Louise and Grandma eat lunch. Dad just had a piece of cake. Mom and dad introduced Aunt Louise and Grandma to Pam, Dale and some other square dancers. They were there about a half hour and had a nice time. When they got back to Cousin Autumn and me it was about 1:00 and we were very happy to see everyone. After saying hi to everyone mom made a sausage pattie sandwich for dad's lunch. Mom didn't go to the gym today so after taking care of dad she decided to take me for a walk. Cousin Autumn and Aunt Louise joined us on our walk. We walked around the neighborhood. As we were walking we met one of my neighbors. I had seen him walking with his mom and dad but I really didn't meet him. We were walking by his house and he saw us so he decided to say hi to us. His mom was outside with him and she introduced herself to us.  He is a black poodle and very friendly. After saying hi to my neighbor we continued our walk. By the time we got back I was exhausted but I had a great walk. When we got back everyone relaxed and visited with each other. While we were relaxing mom made macaroons to take with dad and her square dancing tonight. After mom finished baking she made dinner for everyone. She made a baked potato for everyone and she barbecued Hatch chili sausage links. For Cousin Autumn and me mom fed us our dog food. After dinner mom and dad got ready to go square dancing. Tonight they went to Copperas Cove. Before they left dad showed Aunt Louise how to work our television because Grandma and Aunt Louise were staying home with Cousin Autumn and me. As they were leaving mom gave Cousin Autumn and me a snack and said good-bye to everyone. Mom and dad had a great time at the dance. Dad wore a suit vest with a red tie and red hat to the dance and everyone liked it. Mom wore a pink hat to the dance and it was a hit also. The dance had two squares and four different callers. Marty did one set of dances and it was his first time calling. He did a super job. The clubs caller Ron did a couple of sets. Another member of the club Cliff did a set. The Plus set was called by Besty. Mom's macaroons were also a hit. While mom and dad danced Cousin Autumn and I slept. Grandma watched television and Aunt Louise watched television when she wasn't sleeping. Mom and dad returned to the house at 11:00. Cousin Autumn, Aunt Louise and I were sleeping and Grandma was watching the television and doing her word book. When mom and dad came in the house Cousin Autumn and I woke up so we could say hi to them. After saying our hellos mom and dad changed their clothes. Then we all sat down and had ice cream except for Aunt Louise because she was sound asleep. After having ice cream we all went to bed. Mom put Cousin Autumn in my kennel and then she gave both of us a treat. She gave me my treat on my bed. We had a great day and now it's time to say good night.

When they finished we all went to the living room and Grandma opened her gifts. One gift she was really surprised about was a hearing aid. The whole time Grandma has been here she's been having problems hearing and dad was getting tired of repeating himself. So he got on the Internet and found a hearing aide. He ordered it and we received it yesterday just in time for Mother's Day. So the rest of the day Grandma wore it and she hears a lot better now.

Happy Mother's Day!!! Today mom and dad didn't crawl out of bed until 7:15. They made the bed and then they got dressed. When they came out of the bedroom I was waiting to be let out of my kennel. Once mom opened the door I didn't hesitate I walked right out of the door of my kennel. I said hi to mom and dad and then mom fed me my breakfast. While I was eating my breakfast mom made breakfast for dad and herself. They both had toast and a glass of chocolate almond milk. After everyone was fed mom took me out back so I could take care of business. When I finished we came back inside. Today is a special day. Besides being Mother's Day it's also a celebration for mom and dad because they have completed learning half of the Plus moves. The class decided to have a half way dance to celebrate their accomplishment. The dance isn't until 4:00 but mom wanted to take baked Ziti to the dance so when we got back into the house she made the dish. While mom was making the dish Grandma woke up so she made her some French Vanilla coffee and some toast. Mom didn't bake the dish until later but she put it together. While mom was working in the kitchen dad surfed the Internet and I slept.When mom finished making baked Ziti she played some computer games. When it was time for lunch mom barbecued some shrimp for Grandma and herself. She heated up the leftover pork rib and bacon for dad to have wraps. Mom and Grandma put the shrimp on tortillas and made wraps. Mom gave me a little snack. After lunch we hung around the the house and relaxed. and mom baked the baked Ziti. About 1:30 Louis called to see if mom and dad wanted a ride to the dance. Dad said that Grandma was going with them and Louis said she could come a long. So dad said sure they would meet him at 3:00. At 2:30 mom and dad decided to get dressed of the dance. Before they got dressed dad called Louis and asked him how to dressed. Louis told him that it was a casual dance. As everyone was leaving mom gave me my dinner and said they would see me later. Once again mom didn't put me in my kennel but she let me stay in the house because it was cooler. The dance ended up with three squares. At the beginning there was barely enough for two squares. There was a lot of food and everyone had a great time dancing. Grandma dressed beautifully around the hall. Everyone were happy to meet Grandma and welcomed her happily. Grandma, mom and dad returned to me a little after 7:00. When they got home I was very excited to see them and I met them at the door to say hi. After we all said hi to each other mom and dad changed their clothes. Then mom took me for a short walk. We didn't go too far because mom said she was tired but I still had a fun walk. When we got back home mom and Grandma made homemade ice cream. While mom and Grandma did this dad surfed the Internet and I slept. When the ice cream was done everyone had dessert. For dessert dad and Grandma finished up the homemade strawberry ice cream up and mom had an ice cream sandwich. Mom gave me a little bit of her ice cream sandwich. After dessert we relaxed for the rest of the night. I guess I don't have anything else to say so I'll say good night.

After saying hi to mom and dad mom fed me my breakfast. While I was eating mom made toast and poured a glass of chocolate almond milk for dad and herself. After breakfast mom took me outside to take care of business. While we were outside dad surfed the Internet. When I finished we went back inside. Shortly after we got back inside Grandma woke up and said good morning to everyone. I like it when Grandma visits because she pays a lot of attention to me. After everyone said good morning mom made Grandma a cup of French Vanilla coffee and a bowl of maple and brown sugar oatmeal. About 9:00 mom decided she was going to The Sammons Center to workout in the Sweatin to the Oldies class. Dad was going to drop her off and then take Grandma grocery shopping but he decided against it because we really didn't need the items at the store immediately. Mom said good-bye to everyone about 9:15 and went to the Sammons Center. She got there a little early so she workout on the treadmill for 15 minutes before going to class. There were between 35 to 40 people in the class all the time. Mom always has a great time in the class even though her friend Dorothy only showed up once. While mom was working out Grandma worked on her word search book, dad surfed the Internet and I slept. Mom called dad to tell him she was on her way home. He asked her how his phone sounded and she told him that he was cutting out all the time. So dad needed to work on the phone. Mom got home at 11:15. We all said hi to each other and then mom helped dad work on the phone. It didn't take to long but he thinks he got the problem fixed. After working on the phone mom made lunch, which was leftover baked Ziti from yesterday. Mom gave me a little snack and a couple noodles. For the rest of the day we relaxed. Grandma worked on her word search book and took a few little naps. Dad surfed the Internet and worked on Aunt Louise's old television. I slept and went outside a couple of time. Mom did some Sudoku and worked out on her WII Fit for a half hour and her Gold Gym's Boxing for a half hour. By the time she finished her workout everyone had an ice cream cone and mom gave me a little ice cream. When it was time for dinner mom heated up the rest of the baked Ziti for Grandma, dad and her dinner. Mom fed me my food for my dinner. After dinner mom took me for a little walk. We didn't walk too far because it started to sprinkle a little. When we got home we relaxed a little while and then mom and dad changed clothes because Grandma, dad and mom are going to a concert. The concert started at 7:00 so they left me at 6:30. As they were leaving mom gave me a snack and said they would be back in a little while.

Today mom and dad woke up at 7:00. Mom made the bed while dad got dressed and then she got dressed. After dad finished getting dressed he let me out of my kennel and then he fed me my breakfast. As dad was feeding me mom gave out of the bedroom. After we all said good morning mom made breakfast for dad and herself and I ate my breakfast. Mom made dad toast and poured a glass of almond milk. She made maple and brown sugar oatmeal and poured a glass of almond milk for herself. After everyone was fed mom let me outside so I could take care of business. Today I went out without mom and when I finished mom let me back inside. Mom played computer games all morning. The games she played were solitaire games. On dad's computer Microsoft has five different solitaire games and mom likes playing them all. It has the regular solitaire called Klondike. It has FreeCell and Spider. The other two are Pyramid and TriPeaks. Pyramid is where two cards add up to thirteen and the object is to clear the board. The object when playing TriPeaks is to clear the board by matching the board cards with the card you draw with the number before or after. For example if you draw a King you match the King with either a one or a Queen. If you match the card with a Queen than you match the Queen with either a King or a Jack. You do this until you clear the board. In both games the game once you clear a board another one comes up until there's no more moves than you have to get another card dealt to you. The game is over when there's no more moves and you have used up the three deals. Mom enjoys playing Pyramid and TriPeaks the best. While mom played solitaire dad surfed the Internet and worked on removing hot glue from the dining room chair he's fixing. I slept and pestered mom to let me out now and than. When it was time for lunch mom made soup for dad and herself and she gave me a little snack. After lunch she did the rest of her house work. Dad worked on his chair and surfed the Internet when it's up. I did a little sunning and exploring on my own. Everyday I'm getting better on my invisible fence. The Internet has been up and down for a couple of days so dad called the Internet provider to report it. The provider sent a gentleman out to work on it. I was laying on the porch when he showed up and I scared him a little bit. He was scared of me because he has been bitten by dogs before. He said hi to me and then he rang the door bell. He realized I was friendly so he relaxed and talked to me now and then during his visit. He was here about an hour. The guys name was Larry. The same as my dad's name. Larry and dad worked on the router. Larry replaced the cable modem and checked the readings and found out that it was the same as the old modem. He really didn't fix dad's problem because it may be our computer. So dad thanked him for his time and Larry left. After Larry left mom baked some cookies to take with them to their square dance tonight. Dad printed out a square dancing booklet called The "Maverick". The booklet lets people know about the different clubs dances and when the dances are. You can read it on the Internet because some people don't have a computer or their computer is broken so dad thought it would be nice to have some available in a hard copy for people. Tonight is their club dance and the theme was Hot Potato Dance. Louis, Belinda and Dorothy baked the potatoes and everyone else brought the toppings for them. Mom and dad took sour cream, green onions, bacon bits and chili to go on the potatoes and they also took some Cookie and Creams cookies. Before going to the dance they had a lite dinner. They both had a sausage pattie sandwich. Mom fed me my food for m dinner. After dinner mom let me out to take care of business. When I finished she let me back inside. Then mom and dad got ready to go to the dance. Mom wore her new outfit to the dance and she wore one of dad's hats. They both looked cute when they were finished getting dressed. They wanted to be at the Gober Party House early to help Louis set up for the dance. As they were leaving mom put me in my kennel and gave me a snack. Then she said good-bye and told me they would see me later. The dance only had enough people to make two squares and they usually have three. Mom and dad still had a super time dancing. Along with the potatoes and toppings for the potatoes  they had a salad, brownies, cookies, corn chips, a seven layer dip  and watermelon. They got back to me at 9:45 and I was very excited to see them. As soon as dad opened my kennel door I climbed out and said hi to them both. After saying hi to mom and dad they changed out of their square dancing outfits. Afterwards mom took me outside and then she dished out a bowl of ice cream for dad and herself. Of course she gave me a little bit. Afterwards we called it a night. We had a very nice day. Mom and dad had a great time square dancing. Now it's time to go to bed. So I'll say good night.
