Being Happy

September 30th, 2009

Well, I’ve been in Washington for a little over a week now and I must say…I LOVE it here! We live right by Lake Washington, so my favorite thing to do is go to Barkz for a chicken treat, then eat it by the waterfront. I am also in heaven due to all the squirrels! When I smell one, I go run in the bushes looking for it. My mom gets confused, but when she hears a sudden explosion of rattling leaves and sees me jump out after a darting gray thing, it suddenly makes sense. The squirrels then sit in a tree and chirp angrily at me, but I just smirk and hop away, because I have won. Another thing I have started doing is working on my predator impression. Whenever I see a dog walking my way, I slink to the side of the road and slooooowwwly lower myself into the grass. Then, when the dog gets close…BAM! I jump/pounce out at it and we play. It’s fun for me. I’m not sure if it’s the air out here or what, but man, I have been a ball of energy. Before I was just acting like a puppy, but now I am starting to do things I have never done before – it’s like I’m developing a new, “hoppier” personality. I’m still my sweet self, just…well…feistier. My mom loves it 🙂

    That’s so great!!! Live it up, pup!

    To Yoda and I it almost sounds like you’re channeling two of Yoda’s former dog roommates. One went mad for squirrels (thought he would also bark neurotically at them in the trees – don’t start that new habit). And I heard from his mom that he actually caught one a couple months ago! And, the other, Yoda’s most recent roommate, does the stalking thing at the dog parks. It’s very entertaining, as long as the other dog’s people don’t freak out that you’re preparing to be aggressive.

    Thanks for the great update. We’ve been at our new home in Colorado just a month or so and we love it here too! And Wyatt is in chipmunk heaven. 😉

    It really sounds like you’re enjoying your life! Keep up the great attitude… My Jakie also loves chasing squirrels in our backyard… but of course, he’s never caught one! Right now, he’s not chasing anything (13 days post-op) but we did buy him a stuffed squirrel toy… which seemed to help. I should probably go out and catch a squirrel and rub Jake’s toy on it… and then give it to him… I’m sure that will definitely perk him up!!!
