My mom’s getting pretty good at getting up before the sun to take me for walkies now, even though she’s still allergic to mornings 🙂

I’m pretty sure she is sleep walking when we first leave.  That’s ok, it gives me time to work on learning sign language.

Here’s a sign I saw this morning, for example…

Slow children framed

 

I think it means that the children in this area can’t run very fast when they play ball. I’ll have to be careful if they want to play ball with me, ’cause I run REALLY fast! I wouldn’t want to accidentally run over them.

Today we walked through the neighborhood to get to a field.

We’ve had temperatures over 100 degrees (F) during the day, but sometimes it drops to the 60’s at night. Extremely weird.

It’s scaring the trees so badly that they’re dropping their leaves, even though it’s not fall.

Poor little scared trees. I hope they don’t become a petrified forest out of fear.

Anyhow, we got to the field and had fun walking all around in the grass there.

Here’s a tree tunnel that I like to walk through.

We walked a couple of miles and then headed home.

On the way, I stopped by my friend Llama’s house to say hi.

I don’t know his name yet, but I think it might be Tony.

As usual, I dragged Mom home at warp speed because she doesn’t even give me breakfast before we leave. I make her pay for not feeding me first, bwahaha!

Mom and I were walking along this morning when suddenly I realized we had passed several sections in the road that looked like this…

Oh no! This can’t be! Where are they?

I refused to move until I knew what was going on..

Mom tried to get me to keep walking, but I put my brakes on and wouldn’t budge. No! You can’t make me leave!

After Mom spent a few minutes frustrated thinking about what in the world was wrong with me, she figured it out. 

Then she said, “Oh, for Heaven’s sake, Behr Behr! You’re such a silly girl. These are just painted lines in the road. Your zebra friends are all just fine.”  Oh. Ooops.

Ok, now I felt silly. I thought maybe my friends Zeb, Zack, and Zoe had been squished by cars. Whew!

She took me to their barn later so I could see for myself.

Now that I look back on it, I feel pretty silly. At least it made Mom laugh 🙂 Before that she was just kinda sleepwalking because it was so early.

I’m sure some of you have done silly things that made your humans laugh too. You’re doing a good thing for them by being so goofy.

If “laughter is like medicine for the heart”, then that must make us Canine Cardiologists. 🙂

Keep up the good work, my friends!

My mom is allergic to morning. At least, I think that’s what she told me. 

That’s a big problem right now because it’s way too hot for us to go for walkies any other time.

It’s like 147 degrees by 8 in the morning. Yuck.

She surprised me by waking me up when it was dark outside saying, “Let’s go, Behr Behr.” Really Mom?? Woohoo!!! I woke up REAL fast before she could change her mind!

I’m no dummy. 

It was weird being on the street with no one around.

There weren’t even any cars around. I think they were still asleep.

I was surprised to see my friend Donkey up so early.

This time of morning Mom is too sleepy to talk to me, so I have plenty of time to think about things. Like signs.

I’ve always wondered what they mean. Some are pretty weird, actually. Like this one-

Rock in road sign framed

I thought about it for a while. Then I remembered seeing a big boulder in the road one time.

Oh! It means “Go around the big rocks!”

Really I would rather jump over them. I guess humans need help deciding what to do when there’s a rock in the road.

When we headed back home, I was in a BIG hurry. Mom didn’t even feed me before we left, so I was starving!!

At least I had time to think about deep things, like what human signs mean. And I got to go for walkies with Mom, even with her allergy to morning. 

Life is good.

In my last post, I told you about our fun cabin vacation. (well, except for the fake bears…)

Besides the mts. being a nice break from the hot weather, I got a break from wearing a leash and dragging my parents around. That is so tiring! They don’t even appreciate me pulling them everywhere, either. 

Come on you guys! Lets get going!!

Wow, I LOVE being able to explore the woods on my own!

Here I am taking a little break by the big trees (behind me), while trying to decide what to explore next.

Yippee!! Running free!!

Even though I run free like this, Mom and Dad trained me to always stay within close sight of them. I never bother other animals, either. I’m such a good trail dog!

After running so much all day, I was one tired puppy!  zzzzzzzzzzzz……

I sure wish I could have brought some of you with me. You would have loved it!

It’s so hot where we live that I’m always happy when Mom and Dad decide to go visit the mountains.

Even if I have to put up with their fascination for fake bears.

Yes, once again we’ve gone to a cabin that’s full of bear stuff. I really don’t get it, since they have a REAL Behr…ME!

This one was up high in the living room, and I thought he looked kind of creepy.

Bear on swing framed

I’m wasn’t sure if he was laughing at me, or showing me his fangs.

The fake bears were everywhere, so I mainly stayed outside so I didn’t have to look at them. I kept watch though, in case more tried to come in the yard. 

Behr at cabin framed

I was in “sniff heaven” around the cabin, since lots of wild animals pass through there at night.

Behr sniffing around lake framed

When I got tired of sniffing, it was fun to watch the ducks flying down to the lake and playing in the water. I’ve been a bird watcher since I was a tiny pup.

What do you mean I wasn’t supposed to shred the bed in this dog house? Didn’t the owners tell us to “make ourselves at home?” Well, I did.

Behr on porch framed

Outside wasn’t totally free of the pretend bears, though. There was a big one on the porch, unfortunately.

Mom wanted to take a picture of us together, as if we were friends or something!   Notice how we won’t even look at her at all, and I refused to sit totally down and look natural.

The fake bear kept trying to get out of the picture, so they had to tie him down.

In spite of the phoney bears, I thought the trip to the cabin was a happy one. Even the trees are happy around there!

I heard Mom say something about their bark, but I never heard them make a sound. Silly trees.

My little snugglebug – ALWAYS has to go to sleep snuggling a blanket and sucking on it with her mouth. So cute!
