So today is my birthday. I’m four months old. Guess how we celebrated? I went to PetSmart for a bath. Yippee. No party, no cake, no nothing. Ugh. While we’re talking about my birthday, if I’m four months old in human years, aren’t I 28 months old in canine years? I guess my new pink bandana is my present. Ugh!
So I got a bunch of new toys today. A frisbee that I have no clue what to do with and a plastic bone that sometimes has treats inside. I put it in my mouth and whip it from side to side and the treats go flying out. Then my humans think I’m really smart. I whip everything from side to side, so I’m not sure they’re right.
Speaking of toys, we play fetch all the time. I love my tennis balls. They’re awesome. I still can’t figure out how to let go of them, though, so sometimes my humans get frustrated when I nibble on their fingers when they try to get the ball out of my mouth.They get very excited when I pick up both balls at the same time, so I throw them a bone every now and then. Get it? Throw them a bone? Woof.
So I figured out how to beat the gate. I sometimes forget what it takes to bring that sucker down so I jump on it halfheartedly at first. Then I remember and I go out to the kitchen and run at full speed through the dining room and living room and rush the gate head-on. Boom! Crash! Down it goes! No one seems quite as impressed as they should be that I’ve figured this out.
So I think I might have a boyfriend. Anytime I’m outside, this really cute pit bull from up the street comes outside so he can see me. (Kristin: This is actually true. This dog begs to go outside whenever Frankie is in the yard. It’s weird.) We run along the fence with each other and sometimes he kisses me through the fence. It’s so romantic. His name is Tyson. I think I love him.
So we went for a walk down the alley the other day. This lovely couple stopped us so they could pet me. They said — and I quote, “You’re the dog the whole neighborhood is talking about.”
The dog the whole neighborhood is talking about. Woof.
Look how much I’ve grown!
