A Bayshore walk

Today I took my parents for a lovely walk near where we live in Tampa.  This is a picture of me and my father.
My parents said that we were there to watch a space launch, but I didn't see anything and I don't think they did either.  Oh well, they did have me to look at...
It was a long walk so after I had my dinner I fell asleep...

Notes to friends...

I'd like to welcome Feora and Ocean to my blog.  I like having other canines read my blog, but not come to my house or anywhere else that is my territory.  I'm funny like that.

Feora - I think I would do very well as a trucker's dog
Ocean - I'm sure that people admire you for things other than your size...
Sadie - why are you upset????  Take a nap, have a snack and take another nap - then you should feel better.

An Airstream day -- sort of

My parents must have realized that I was missing my Airstream so we got in the car and went to a rally somewhere south of here - Sarasota I think.

A rally is a bunch of Airstreams in one place with their people and canines and a scattering of cats.

First we went to a store and a lady gave me treats.  Several other people petted me too and told me how beautiful I was.  Some people shared shiba inu stories with my parents.  I enjoy this.

At the rally I walked around with mom and day and then we went to a happy hour that turned into dinner.  Thank you Hunter!  Again I was the center of attention. 

On the way home I was very tired and fell asleep!  I woke up for a bit and then went to sleep again.

OMG, there are so many wonderful smells out there!  I walk up and down the street with my mom or my dad and I can't stop sniffing!  It's amazing!  Maybe it was a good thing that we came to Florida.

I'll sleep on it.

Confusion - discombobulation

I am feeling very discombobulated today.

Yesterday morning I left NY and after a few naps wound up in a motel room in South Carolina (so my parents told me).  And a very nice motel room - a Red Roof Inn with very pleasant and helpful staff who like me very much.

Today, after another nap or two I found I was in Tampa, FL in my second home.  I'm not used to it yet.  I went out and  played with my stuffed piggy and bit.  I threw up too.  I should feel better tomorrow after I get some more sleep.

Odds and ends..

I have a few things to catch up on today before I go back to sleep.

To Trixie, Sam and Sadie's mom - I think buying a larger house so that your canines can have extra beds is a wonderful idea.  I'm sure that even with the 12 beds there will be some space you can use.

To Duke - Duke works at the place where my mom gets her toes painted.  He barks at everyone. Hey, Duke, I just come to get petted and have everyone make a fuss over me.  Then I go home!

To Mollie - I hope you enjoy reading my blog.It makes me feel popular.  (Mollie and I go camping together in our Airstreams when the weather is better.)

A bed solution...

My Mom, who sometimes helps me keep up on human blog postings, has told me that Trixie, Sam and Sadie have a problem and have been giving their mom "attitude".

I don't know what "attitude" is - I am always a delightful and cooperative canine - but I think that I, Belle, may have a solution to the problem.

The problem is that Trixie, Sam and Sadie are upset when their mom washes their beds.  I can understand this.  Sometimes my parents wash my bed too.  But, when one bed is being washed I simply go to another bed.  I have several beds!

This is my bed in my parent's bedroom where I sleep at has my special blanket in it.
This is my bed in the living room.  It is where I can watch TV and keep an eye on my parents.  I can also see the door and it is easy for me to get up and welcome visitors...

This is the bed in the "office".  When my parents spend too much time on the computer I can remind them that I am here and need to be walked, petted and fed.  This room also looks out into the backyard where the squirrels and 'possoms are.

Sometimes I think I'm getting old.  
It seems like all I do is lay around the house and watch the weather channel.
It's too cold and icy to go out.
I sleep a lot too.
