5 Months!

Hi everyone! Sorry I haven't posted in a while. Mom's being acting like a schizophrenic on amphetamines. She's been out and about training for the new job and trying to catch up on school and just acting like a lunatic. And we all know that she's paranoid about her computers so I'm not allowed on unless she's here to help. (Mom rules...blah blah blah)

Saturday was 5 months for me! We stopped at the vet today for a weigh in and I was a whopping 51.1 pounds!! WOOP WOOP!! I'm the biggest boy there is! I also lost and tried to eat two molars. Mom kept them, cause, like I said, she's a lunatic.

We've been doing a lot of the "kick the can" clicker game. I change the rules every time I knock over the cup and make it a game of keep away...hehehe. We've also been working on "stay". I'm not real great at that. I know, I know "But Hawk, you're great at everything!" Well, like Mom says, even the Yankees can't win EVERY game.

I can handle stay when Mom's in the same room. I can handle her being out of my sight, but only when I still know she's close and not for long. I can't deal when she gets more than about 7 feet awat though, that's just not cool.

Another thing is "leave it". Yes, I am a rockstar at this, however, I'm trying to find a loophole in the game. The first thing I tried was to just pick it up (reeeeeealllllllly slooooooowly) and chew the treat (reeeeeeeeeeeaalllllllllllly slloooooooowly) Mom says that's a no go, it's cheating. I'll figure something out....

We went swimming last weekend. Ringo (my homeboy) went too. He's a total fish, me-not so much. I went in after him and fell off the floating dock. I didn't come up right away and I heard Mom saying she was going in after me. Well I made it to the surface just as she was looking like she was going to jump. I tried to get back on the dock. Let me tell you something, you can't get onto a floating dock from the water, you just can't do it. Someone has to pick you up out of the water or you have to swim to shore. Figured that one out the hard way. After that I just played in the shallows with Barely and Eva. I was good with that. Ringo and Gretel were swimming machines though. Guess it's just not my cup of tea.

Well, Mom's gotta get back to her classes and I'm game for a nap in front of the fan. Catch you all later!

Continued Celebrity Status

Please feel free to start a fan club for me. It's only a matter of time.

I've got a guest spot on the 3DirtyDawgz website for posing in a collar of theirs. It's the one I'm currently wearing that Mom won for me at PawsAbilities.

Check me out and don't forget to look around the site while you're at it (I know I'm awe inspiring and can cause some to lose their train of thought...)


That's a peanut butter bone, 2 cheese cubes and 4 little peanut butter bite treats! Am I a ROCKSTAR OR AM I A ROCKSTAR???!!!!

Status Update

So here we go. Sorry it's been so long. I was recovering from Ringo and I's 5 day UFC match that we had. It was great! I have some pictures of us....

It was a good weekend.

Well, it's 4 and a half months old for me...yep, I'm getting old. But on a more positive note, for me, 4.5 months = 46.5 pounds!! Nana said I'm growing at the same rate my Aunt Molly did (she's was a St. Bernard). That makes Mom a little scared. She says she's afraid I'm gonna be some 100 pound Lab. I don't see the problem, more bed for me!

I promised some training updates too. I can pretty much handle loose leash walking (when I'm paying attention at least) and I know sit and down and that stuff (duh) but this is what Mom and I were working on this week...

That's right baby!!! Check out my awesome powers of "Leave It"!!!!!

I also, on a side note, want to thank Aunt Michelle for the new bones!

Other than that there's not much to say. I visited Aunt Linzey this weekend and when Mom steals her pictures I'll put them up. It was a preview of what it's going to be like next weekend when we go to Gretel's birthday party!
