A mini vacation

Mum and her fella took a little road trip to go to some people thing called a concert. That means I got to stay with my Gran and Grampy!! Their house is super fun and I have a real big yard there! We play this fun game where they let me outside and go sit down and I bark at the door so they get up and let me in, over and over! Mum says they should get a doggy door, but I think that would spoil our fun! Gran and Grampy don't take pictures, so mum is going to share some from her trip. I think you will like the last one the best! I know it's my favorite.

She didn't buy these scottie cookies, but she did stop at the doggie bakery and got me some carob dipped strawberry creme cookies! They weren't around long enough for a picture though!

Park day

In honor of Finn & Gizmo's Park Day I wanted to show you around one of the parks near my house. This is called Hazel Abel Park. Hazel Abel was the first woman in Nebraska to serve in the U.S. Senate.  She was elected to complete the term of a Senator who had died in office.  She only served from Novermber 1954 - December 1954.  We don't know about her polictics, but she sure has a nice little park.

These are some old columns in the park.  The city just renovated the entire park...they kept some of the old things, like the columns and the black iron fence. 

And they added some new things like this cute elephant sculpture.  They replaced all of the old (and dangerous looking) play structures and modernized things a bit. In the summer time there are beautiful flowers all around too.

This is me posing by the fountain.  The fountain is original to the park; when the warmer weather comes it will be filled with water and make lovely splooshy sounds.  When I was just a wee pup, mum brought me to this park on one of our walkies.  She picked me up and put me on the side of the fountain just like I am now, so she could take a picture...and then I fell in!  Yep, I just fell right into the water and mum had to fish me out.  Phew, I'm real glad she was close by because with my tiny puppy legs and my giant puppy head, I'm afraid I wouldn't have made it out by myself!

This is another neat old structure in the park.  Hazel Abel park is right in the middle of an old neighborhood and takes up about 1/4 of the city block...a small, but lovely treasure in my little Nebraska city. 
Thanks for coming on a little tour with me!

Walk About Wednesdays - This old house edition

I decided it would be fun to take you on a virtual walking tour of my neighborhood! Mum is a sucker for old things, especially houses, so here's one we see frequently.

This is the Kennard house and it's said to be the oldest house in Lincoln! In the 60s it was dedicated as a monument of our statehood. Pretty cool, huh?

Old timer Tuesday

Here's one of the old man. He does alright for himself, though mum worries about him all the time. She's always like "Edgar! Stop chasing him! Edgar! Stop bonking him!" Sheesh, I'm just tryin to keep him spry!

Take out

Mum let me have the rice container from her take out...I think I got every last grain from every nook & cranny! If y'all are noticing that I've been around a lot more its cause mum got a new phone! It does fancy things like takes pictures & she can write blogger posts too! Yahoo! I'm back in business!

Tough days

I'm watching the news with mum and I just don't know anymore, guys. I'm kinda feeling glum, I just don't know what's wrong with humans sometimes. I sure hope that everyone out in Watertown gets to go to sleep tonight feeling safe & sound!

A question from mum

I'm having trouble replying to comments on the blog...I type it all out & when I press publish it disappears! Does anyone else have this problem on blogger? Ideas? Any are most appreciated!

Did you guys know that the word terra means earth? And the name for me -Scottish Terrier - comes from that word terra? So really, terrier sorta means earth dog...which is what I did last weekend! I went to an earthdog fun day! There was a nice man there who was an expert & he helped my mom & me to learn how to do it. There was this cage with two rats in it and boy oh boy did that get me going! Then the man put the cage inside a wooden tunnel and I had to find it! He said I did really great for my first time and even let me have two turns! I can't wait till they have another fun day cause boy was that fun!!
