Houston Dog Show

My mom and dad went to the Houston Dog Show last week and they didn't take me! Mom says that I would be overwhelmed with all the people and dogs and smells and stuff, but I think I would have been just fine. Maybe next year.

Anyway, when they got home I sniffed them all over and oh boy! they smelled like heaven to me. I could smell dozens of other dogs of all kinds. I really wasn't too happy with them petting and talking to other dogs, but they sure did smell good!

Then they brought out my surprises. Of course they bought me stuff. I got a new Jolly Ball! This one has a handle on it and I can just grab it up and toss it all over.

I got 3 HUGE treats! A femur, knee cap and some tendons, too. That made it all worth them seeing the other dogs. 

Note from Mom: I just love the Houston Dog Show. Every year we talk about letting Opie go - but we always back out. Then we regret not taking him, so we buy him a bunch of stuff to make up for it. LOL

Singing Tomorrow

I like to sing. Bet you didn't know that. I do and I have some songs of choice that I really like.

Note from Mom:
There are a couple of commercials that Opie watches that he howls as loud as he can and he sounds so pitiful! He also howls when Young & Restless comes on and they play Nadia's Theme.

I don't know what it is about this one commercial, tho. I can't figure it out. It is a commercial about preventing heart attacks and they are singing "Tomorrow, Tomorrow, I'll Love Ya, Tomorrow" and he will watch it and throw his head back with a horrible howl! I had to video it and I put it on Facebook, of course. Maybe  he is just singing.

Then there is the commercial about abused animals. I understand his howling at the sad, abused dogs.  That one makes me want to howl. But the heart attack commercial?

Maybe it is the sad sound to the songs. I don't believe it is hurting his ears or even irritating him. Music is pretty much in the background of everything on TV. We watch Dancing With The Stars - never has howled. He never howled during American Idol or The Voice.

Company Gone!

We had a great time! My grandma and niece were here for 2 weeks! Lilly and I played frisbee. I did all my tricks for Brooklyn. 
Here are some pics of my and Lilly. she is 9 years old. I miss her already.

Note from Mom: He is so good with kids. He really loves them. I am always watchful when ever he is around kids, but he has always been perfectly fine.
