MOSES is 2!

Happy Birthday to Moses!

I turned 2 and to celebrate, we had a Birthday Party! I invited all of my neighborhood friends to come over and have treats and cake. 38 of my human friends came and 15 of my canine friends. I think Chili and Laz had the best times. Chili likes to come over to my house and get cake and treats. He is the Weiner Dog in the photo and he jumps up and down even though he is 15 and has a broken back. He normally isn't quite that nimble (of course I am always nimble and able to jump very high). Chili and his sisters Whoopi and Maggie also had fun playing with the kids that were too little to play with me, which was pretty much all of them... but I got to play a little. There was this one little boy Alex, who I was able to push over so easily. He is much easier to knock over than Dad, which I find very interesting. I need to do more testing on this idea that some people are easier to knock over than others.

Anyway, I got to see Sarah who sometimes takes care of me and it was GREAT! I've missed her because she had a baby, Claire! My friend Dave and Kelly came by, and Kelly brought Emma who liked playing with Laz. Laz just kept running after his ball. Over and over again, throw and fetch. He would chase it for a n y o n e ! He was extremely tired afterwards. Oh - my vet came... she promised not poke or prod me so I allowed her to come in. I really like her, especially when I see her outside of the vet. Also in attendance were: Skye, Pudgin, Jack, Diva, Ginger, Mylie, Schnitzel, Sammy and Kacey. There were 3 Chocolate labs, but no other Pointers.

Mom made the cake that the dogs ate, and Dad made the human cake. My cake had carrots, honey, peanut butter, eggs and flour. The frosting was cream cheese! The human cake was shaped like Texas with a location marker where I am located.

Mom and Dad say I am starting to mind more - whatever that means, and I am getting to go swimming off my leash now. My birthday party was fun, but you don't need a party to come visit me!

Lazarus Lincoln!

Here are a few pictures of Lazie's latest caper. The substance is flour. A 1/2 full bag of flour was left on a counter in the kitchen while we went out. A hungry Laz thought the flour would taste as scrumptious as the final product that flour makes (cakes), but was stupefied to find that his equation was ineffective. He destroyed the whole bag in his haste to find good eats in the ingredient bag. We did not need a CSI team to figure out the guilty party!

Fight On! SC

After being horribly dissapointed after the loss to Stanford, Kevin and I broke our previous USC rock that we had sitting in front of the house. It has sat broken since that game and with a victory in the Rose Bowl, we felt it was time to replace the rock and restore the outward expression of our school spirit!

Kevin also built a retaining wall to show off our new rock and house numbers.

I think Kevin did an excellent job!

Mosi for Claire

We found this adorable stuffed German Shorthaired Pointer toy that looked just like Moses for Claire for Christmas. Claire is about 5 months. Moses and Laz are excited to meet her, but until then she can play with Moses' alter ego Mosi. According to Mom, "Claire loves her Mosi!" Unfortunately, Laz and Moses wanted to keep Moses for themselves. Here are some pictures of us trying to show Mosi and Mosi's likenesses. Note the one with Mosi's leg in Mosi's mouth. Oh - I even docked his tail to look like Mosi's!

Time for my birthday!

Hey, Mosi here.

I just wanted to make sure everyone knows that my birthday is coming up and we are having a party as usual. I am turning 2! Dad and Mom have been talking about how much better behaved I have been lately and how much I have matured. Laz says that means that they might bring home another dog (He says they got me when they said that about him when he was 1 1/2). I do not think that will work though because Laz and I are so needy and desire so much affection. Anyway, my main "point" is that my party is coming up on January 26 and I will be fired up for it. We will have all the burners going on our new grill!

New Year's Eve Party

Lazarus, Moses, Julie, and I were invited to a "dog friendly" New Years party! There were no fireworks or loud music to speak of. Laz made so many friends. Moses was so active that he got tired as midnight approached. They were already worn out because our whole pack had gone swimming that day at the Comal River. The final photo is of debauchery at the party that we were not part of, but it was kind of fun to watch. Lazarus loved the guy with the leather wristbands!
