It's hot, hot, hot!

Mommy has brought us back to Montana! And it's very, very hot. We have none of this thing called A/C so Mommy sets up a fan to keep me cool!
Ok, so I thought I could show you some pictures of me panting away this heat wave, but I had a better idea...I thought I'd show you some pics from this time last year when we were also experiencing a horrible heat wave! I do love sitting in front of the fan to stay cool although I don't like the way it blows my ears!
I love to lick ice cubes! They're great this time of year. Mommy puts them in my water bowl and I love to "bob" for them. Sometimes I end up blowing bubbles in the water when I stick my nose under.
I've grown up an awful lot since this time last year... I just wish it was a little bit cooler.
I hope you all are a little bit cooler wherever you are in the world!

Yay! Mommy's home! And that mean's I'm back!!! I only have a minute to blog cuz I'm so excited that MOmmy's home! She got home Saturday, and we have been playing lots. Today we are going to the park if it will stop raining. (Sure it doesn't rain in the last month until the day Mommy and I plan to go the park!) I have driven gramma nuts because I'm so restless, and there are some weird noises coming from the neighbor's house so I pooped in the living room yesterday (this did not make gramma happy!), but I was too scared to go outside.

I am just so excited that Mommy's home. We're staying at gramma's for a little bit longer then heading back to MT soon. Mommy says she doesn't really want to go back to MT because it's really really hot and no one has air conditioning. That sounds ok to me though, because that means Mommy will take me to play in the river, and even though I don't like water, I will make concessions when it gets hot enough.

Oh yes, and now that Mommy's home, she's no longer a cadet! She is very excited about this because she is now officially an Army Officer. She says she really likes her butter bar. I'm a little disappointed, the butter flavor was lacking when I tried to chew it off her uniform.

For Ellie?

So Saturday Mommy came in with a special box, and told me it was special for Ellie. But because she had to go to work, I couldn't open it til yesterday. This made me very sad, but I was very patient and finally the moment arrived!!

This isn't what I did to the box...this is what the mailman did! How rude! Breaking into my box!

The box was from my boyfriend Peanut! He sent me lots of yummy goodies, and a new toy that whistles at me and says "I love you"! It is my new favorite toy!

But then something bad happened...I was whipping my new toy around and I pulled one of his legs off. I was very sad! But I took the toy to Mommy, because she gets mad when I pull the stuffing out of my toys. Then I waited very patiently while Mommy pulled out a needle and thread and sewed his leg back on! Phew! Mommy told me I need to be more careful and that she only performed the surgery because she was already sewing the new buttons on her uniform.

This is me cuddled up with my Octopus. Mommy thought I looked cute curled up with my pink toy, with my pink collar on my pink blanket. I thought it was very rude of her to wake me up just so she could take a picture. Sometimes Mommies have no respect for puppy naps!


Oh yes...and I was tagged to show my belly! This is me last summer when I was still a wee pup and had a pudgy belly and much fewer spots! Hee, hee...enjoy!

Hi all! Ellie is back!

I've been gone for awhile cuz Mommy was writing her thesis for graduate school, but now she's all done and I have kidnapped the laptop again!
This is my Mommy at her graduation this Saturday. I didn't get to go to the ceremony, which I thought was a rip off since I helped her so much with her thesis! Either way, I thought my Mommy looked very pretty. I wanted to help decorate her black gown with Ellie hair, but Mommy didn't think this was funny.
After her graduation ceremony, Mommy had to go to an Army ceremony. She wasn't very thrilled, but she got to see her good friend Heather. Remember my friend Chloe from last summer? Heather is Chloe's Mommy. Heather and my Mommy both receive their Commission's this summer as 2LT in the US Army.

With the grandparents in town, this has meant lots of play time for Ellie! I'm a fan! But grandpa doesn't understand that playing with Ellie is a full-time job. Also, grandma is confused about me sleeping on MY bed. She keeps kicking me off the bed, and I have to sneak back on in the middle of the night. But nevertheless, I like having them here.

Well, I hope you all are doing well, and I look forward to hearing from you all again! And now that I'm back, you will be hearing from me often, so check back soon!

Where's Ellie?

Hi everyone!
This is Ellie's Mommy.
I apologize for hogging the computer from Ellie the last little bit. I have been busily working on my thesis to try to graduate at the end of the semester. I also have been desperately trying to keep my head on straight with all of my army stuff. And then with work and classes and all the running around with puppy, Ellie just hasn't gotten her paws on the laptop recently. She's been very busy with her hikes. She went today and loved the mud from the downpour of rain we got early this morning. She misses you all and will be back soon! In the meantime, she's doing her best to stay up to date on all your blogs and you can always keep in her touch with by email!
For now, she's snoring and dreaming of her favorite dirt pile and
yummy budding flowers to chase and eat!
