Another Bath?

I just had another bath! Sure, I went to the park and played with another puppy, but I bet he didn’t have to get a bath when he got home. Now Mommy says I’m going to the groomer and getting my first haircut. I don’t know what that means, but I doubt it means something good. Maybe there will be treats involved. That’s always good.

Do German Shepherds have to get haircuts? I should have been a German Shepherd!

Shoes, shoes & More Shoes

The shoes are all in the wrong place.  It appears it’s up to me to rectify the situation.  This is a lot of work.  I can only take one shoe at a time.  

I found this tall shoe organizer filled with shoes, many of them at just my height.  I decided to spread them out with a few in each room. Little did I know Mommy would pick them up and put them back in the organizer.  What’s with that?  I had some in the living room, some in the kitchen, and the slippers in the bathroom. Sometimes Mommy picks them up and now there are shoes on the kitchen table (yuk!), on top of the printer, and on the bathroom counter.  I work at this everyday to keep them out of the organizer.

So many shoes, so little time.

P.S.  Mommy was trying to teach me how to add music to my video but she’s not very skilled.  She said we could add the beginning of Superfly to my video on iMovie and it should be easy peasy.  It wasn’t! I think I have to get a better computer teacher!

What to Read?

Reading is so important!

My PetSmart Puppy Training class was postponed so with my extra time I thought I’d do a little reading. Now I just have to decide on a book. What should I read?  Do I go with a cookbook, check out a book on St. Louis, or read about collectibles?  As you can see I finally decided to pull out the Atlanta Dining Guide.  I assume this is a doggie dining guide because what other kind would there be?  Now I’ll just have to decide on a restaurant!

The World is Flat (Don’t go Down the Stairs!)

I Won’t Go Down, I Won’t Go Down, I Won’t Go Down

What is over this huge ledge?  I’ve reached the edge of the world.  Mommy is standing lower than me.  I think she’s dropping into the abyss.  I can’t go over the ledge, I won’t.  Let me just lay down.  I won’t move. Not for anything.  Not for treats.  Not for the clicker.  I’m not moving.

People are going by. Some are stopping and saying, “You can do it, Cooper!” I will not move. Look at that ledge. Mommy is saying silly things. She says the earth isn’t flat. She’s asking if I’m a member of the Flat Earth Society. I’m not a member of anything, but if there is a Flat Earth Society I think I’ll join. I bet they don’t go down steps.

Mommy keeps trying. She dangles the treat but I only get it if I go over the ledge. I’m NOT moving. After a half an hour she finally gives up and says we’ll try again tomorrow. She picks me up and carries me down the stairs. Success! Today it is good I’m not a German Shepherd!

Love from Cooper!

P.S. Mommy and I went back to the stairs again the next day. Do you know how easy it is to go down stairs. I’m a pro at it. I guess the world isn’t flat!
