Life started out with just myself and Hercules. But now our pack has grown. First Sherrie joined us two years ago and now we have a new family member in the form of “Bear”, a new Rottweiler puppy. Bear does not live with us but he is here every day during weekdays and on occasion we “Puppy-sit” on weekends.
So how much do I enjoy having another puppy around?
Not so much. He’s ok for about five minutes and after that he is just plain annoying! He doesn’t stop for a second and wants to play with me all day long. That wouldn’t be so bad if he understood the rules of the game – i.e. I get the ball, the ball is thrown for me and even if there are two balls being thrown, they are both mine! Ditto with toys! If Mom comes home with a new toy and gives it to the pup he should realise it is still mine! Right?
Besides the issue of ‘toy ownership’, he is kinda cute and sort of well behaved when not trying to annoy me. And when I have the energy its quite fun to play tag with him!

I LOVE my food! Really, really love meal times! If I have to choose between a treat or meal and going for a walk … its a really difficult choice!
So my Mom was very proud of me when Hercules (The Cat) wanted to taste what I get for dinner. It took a lot of self control not to shoo him away … but I figured he’s just a little cat, how much could he possibly steal from me?
Would you share your food with a Cat?
family pack and friends Happy Holidays!
My Mom thinks I’m the most handsome dog she has ever seen. I’m not arguing.
My friend Ox came to visit. Ox is a lot older than me and quite grumpy, although Mom says he is sweet. I don’t see it – he bosses me around and growls at me when I try to take MY toys away from him … what’s “sweet” about that? But I love it when Ox comes to play or when we get to take long walks together with our people.

Thats all for today
Our beloved Dexter turned 4 years old on 27 August 2011! Happy Birthday Dex … We LOVE you to BITS!
Here are some very recent photographs of Dexter – All grown up now at close on 4 years old! Dexter is an amazing watch dog but he is a sweet, loving dog with his family and friends, with the personality of a playful pup! Isn’t he just gorgeous?
One of my jobs is to fetch the newspaper every morning from outside and bring it inside. I love my job – I get paid every day (in biscuits!).
… and here is Hercules doing his job … sleeping all day!

According to various sorces, dogs can learn up to 200 words. So my Mom and I decided to write down all the words I know to see if we get to 200 …
These are all the words I know:
