Awww! Ain't they cute? Don't get any ideas, mom!

Okay, I know I have been bad about writing lately. I can't help it. I'm a busy guy. Guy's like me are in high demand. As you know, I finished Family Dog training and Ollie was in Rally Dog. Well, Ollie and Dad decided that Rally was just too much for him and he quit. Hehehehe! Ollie is a drop out! Mom has decided that I did so well in my classes that I should be in Family Dog II class. Com'on now, mom! I just got some time off. Besides, I am perfect just the way I am!
I want to introduce you to two of my friends, Butchy and Snickers. Butchy and Snickers are two WFT's who apparently really love each other. Not like Ollie and I. Butchy and Snickers share their home with their mom Linda. They also have their own blog. It is really beautiful. You can see more pictures of Butchy and Snickers there. Photos like this makes Mom talk about getting another Wire Terrier. Can you imagine? Does she think she can replace me? I think not. Besides, if she brings home anything that she thinks she will love as much as me, I'll eat it. I keep telling Dad that he is walking on thin ground. He thinks that he should climb in bed with mom and kick me out....that really makes me mad and I growl. Somehow mom and dad don't think that is funny. I'm just trying to keep what is mine. That includes the house, the bed, all the food in the house, the yard outside, the squirrels outside, the cars, mom and anything else I lay claim to. What is so hard to understand about this? World domination....that's my goal. I already have mom in my hip pocket.

Mrs. Robinson.... here's Mackie!

It’s official; I am now a family dog…whatever that means. Last night was my final night of Family Dog I training and I graduated with flying colors. Mom has been working with me in the mornings after Dad and Ollie are gone so I can show off a bit in class. Although there were about 10-12 dogs that started the class, only five of us finished. Not sure why, I think that everyone was doing really well. I can sit, stay, heel, come, wait, stand and a bunch of other things. The only thing I don’t like doing is staying when mom is out of sight…that’s a hard one. Anyway, I am a graduate…so, where in the heck is my sportscar? Where is my silly cap? And where in the heck is Mrs. Robinson? (That's what I'm talking about!)

Mom says that she would like to sign me up for Family Dog II training. Can’t she give me a break or something? Can’t a guy take a vacation?

On top of everything else, Mom has decided to put me on a diet. (Check me out in my pics. Aren;t I just the picture of health and fitness? Mom really loves the one of me "pointing" as I looked for a squirrel.) She claims I’ve gained a lot of weight this winter (Hello, mom- have you looked in the mirror lately? You know the old saying, right? If your dog is fat, you aren’t getting enough exercise! Heheheheh! I just love that one!) My treats have been cut significantly, as has my kibble. Mom is still giving me some scrambled egg in my dinner, so that makes up for some of it, but I am thinking of staging a MUTINY! Okay, okay, I understand that we aren’t on a boat….how about a revolution? A revolt? An uprising? An insurrection? Now, who’s with me?
