I officially love Texas

Texas is so fun because it has these things called ranches. We got to go to one this past weekend and it was WONDERFUL! I didn't know what I was in store for when we drove in the car to the "ranch" but when we got to the gate, I couldn't contain myself, and I jumped out the 1/2 open window, circumnavigated the car two times and jumped back in the 1/2 open window. When Mom finally got the gate open, we drove for a little while and I was so excited becuase there was so much to explore. When we finally stopped, I busted out of the car and ran around the big grassy area as long as I could. Then I saw my friend Dave and ran some more. Laz and I got to explore and play with our tennis ball. Dad took us down to the Blanco river and I was the first in! It was pretty shallow where I was and I splashed around. Lazie swam too. Then we got to play some more and eat bites of steak from Dad under the table. I did get a little startled at these flying light things - mom and dad called fireflys. I barked at some kyakers and then we all watched a movie. I snuggled with my new friend Dave and snored during the movie. I LOVE TEXAS!


I love chicken

Hi - Lazie here. I just wanted to take this opportunity to tell everyone how much I love chicken. I think I get it from my human dad because he loves chicken too. One night he cooked this huge plate of chicken. I was so excited. I couldn't figure out why we weren't eating it though... hmm... instead mom and dad took these pictures. One is of Moses who laid down as flat as he could to get a piece of chicken (he likes it too). Dad cut of the chicken and put it into a big bowl and he made some soup. I LOVE CHICKEN SOUP! I love the chicken, the noodles, and the broth. In the picture, you can see my new silver rabies tag. I had such a good time at the vet when I got my updated vaccinations.

I have been enjoying our morning walks a lot lately. More people have been out lately, and I love seeing Jennifer, Ed (who once thought my name was Lucifer), Ellen and Jack, and even my friend Jim from Gruene UMC stopped to say hi in his red pick-up. I have so many friends in the neighborhood. I wish I could go to the HOA meeting tonight, but Mom said that dogs couldn't come.

Your pal,

10 People who Should be Fired

Every once in a while, I feel the need to rant. So here is a top 10 list of people I feel should be fired for complete incompetence.

10. Matt Lauer, NBC Today Show, the dumbest pompous ass on television
9. Mike D'Antoni, Coach for the Phoenix Suns, While I am very glad the Spurs beat the Suns in the 2007 playoffs, this guy got so badly out coached it was painful. The Suns had more depth, more talent, and the home court advantage, but he refused to take any blame. Rather he whined about foul calls and the officiating. You can't trust a guy with a mustache like that.
8. Hillary Clinton, Senator from NY, leave it to New Yorkers to elect this weasel who will say anything to get elected. Just say you screwed up for voting for the Iraq War and blame yourself for being an idiot. A person with a backbone would resign, but she is running now for higher office?
7. Steve Javie, NBA Referee, this guy loses control of almost every game he calls and once called a technical foul on the Washington Bullets announcers.
6. Bill O'Reilly, Fox News, a complete liar who desires to scare and threaten people rather than explain what good is happening. Everyone who disagrees with neo-conservative rhetoric is not a terrorist!
5. Sheriff Ralph Lopez, Bexar County Texas, the sheriff's department continually screws up traffic flow into Spurs games and he has sought advice from Joe Arpaio who is a crazy law enforcement official in Phoenix-- enough said.
4. Pat O'Brien, The Insider, I have to see this ugly stiff every time I fall asleep with the TV on and wake to his annoying voice shouting about Paris Hilton or Tom Cruise. How can he survive that phone message?
3. Bob Costas, "Sports" Dope on NBC, he is the most pompous ass on sports programming. He thinks he knows everything about baseball but only knows crap about New York teams that no one outside the tri-state area cares about. He ruins every broadcast with his tight head shots and lackluster commentary.
2. Devon Hansen, Department of Geography Univ. of North Dakota, she is hopefully the most unprofessional and incompetent person I ever have to work with.
1. George W. Bush, President of the USA, where to begin> oil profits for his buddies, the Iraq War, mishandling response to terrorism, growing gap between rich and poor, and increasing environmental degradation. Bush couldn't find a clue with a telescope. He is simply the pretty boy numb nuts Cheney and the neo-conservatives hide behind in their sinister plot to spread evil and unfettered capitalism around the world. He will go down as the worst president in American history.

Taco Cabana - my new favorite place

Sunday, Kevin took me to Taco Cabana to eat for Mother's Day. I had chicken flautas (all white meat) and they were WONDERFUL! We went there again to day for lunch and this time I had the roterisserie chicken with tortillas. Again, it was Fabulous! Kevin has enjoyed a Cabanarita each time we have gone and also liked the chicken and beef fajitas. YUMMY! Therefore, Taco Cabana is my new favorite place.


Happy Mother's Day

We had a wonderful Mother's Day here in New Braunfels. Lazarus took me to Dairy Queen for Mother's Day. I had a chocolate dipped strawberry blizzard. Kevin had a vanilla cone and Laz and Moses had a Strawberry Sundae with whipped cream and nuts. A good time was had by all! Moses replaced a piece of clothing he ruined earlier for Mother's Day, so I was very happy about that as well.

On Friday night we had a great time at the Spur's game! It was exciting and we even spotted Eva Longoria.

Mosi, the Spurs Fan

Moses can be so silly. Even though he really has little interest in watching sports (he prefers his perch and watching for people, deer, etc) he has Spurs fever. After Kelly and Dad went to Game 5 when the Spurs eliminated the Nuggets, Dad gave Mom the silver and black pom-pom they gave him as he entered the arena. Mom was happy with it, and she put it on the kitchen shelf. The next day, Moses had gotten to it and began systematically chewing the plastic off of the pom-pom. Dad found him before the toy was destroyed, but this picture shows the guilty party. Speaking of party, my birthday is coming up in a little more than 2 months!

Your pal,

Rangers defeat the Blue Jays

Julie and I drove to Arlington, Texas yesterday to watch the game between the Rangers and the Toronto Blue Jays. We had a great time at the game, and had excellent seats along the first base line. Julie gave the 1st base umpire a hard time a few times and heckled Brad Wilkerson who stinks, and I was able to take a few pictures of the Rangers dugout and important Ranger players and manager Ron Washington who we both admire. One of the best parts of the game was at the end, they announced that ALL FANS were able to run the bases after the crowd dispersed. Julie showed off her jets as she nearly took out a stooge posing at home plate, and I was able to pass slower traffic running the bases the proper way in the shape of bananas. Sarah came over in the afternoon to let the boys out, and we got home in the evening. The Rangers won the game 3-2 on Michael Young's 8th inning home run and Aki Otsuka came in for the 9th inning to close it out. Julie also wanted me to mention that she picked both Rangers who homered in the game (Young and Texiera) in our "picks to click" as we drove up I-35.
The photos show: Sammy Sosa in the dugout, Frank Thomas (Toronto) on 1st base after a single chatting with Mark Texeira, and manager Ron Washington on the mound making a pitching change.

New phone and holder

I am so excited because Dad has two new chew toys. One is a flippy thing that Mom's voice sometimes comes out of. The other one smells like a cow and attaches to his belt. He is super protective of them, but I keep vigilant watch on them to see if they are within paw or tooth reach.
A lot of people have been saying that I am growing up lately. I think my obedience training has been kicking in. I pull less on walks and have been taking fewer galloping tours of the neighborhood. I've even been giving up toys and frisbees when Dad and Mom say "off."
I just love that the weather is getting warmer. I know that I was born in Minnesota, but I love Texas! Laz tells me about the snow sometimes, but I really can't remember it. Well, I better wrap this up... so have a great week, and I will share Lazie and my favorite way to beat the heat-- eat plenty of ICE CREAM!!!

Baseball Season

One of our joys is being able to watch baseball games on our new TV. I recently ordered the MLB Extra Innings package which allows us to watch games that are "out of market" so we can keep up with other teams. Julie keeps tabs on the Oakland A's, and I usually keep tuned into Orioles, Nationals, and Padres games. Laz and Moses like the package too because it means that Dad is home more and available for scratches and hugs. Here are some photos from last night as we watched the Orioles play the Detroit Tigers.
