pillow talk

In which Po is introduced to his newest comfy spot, courtesy of our dear friends P and J.

"For me? A handmade pillow for my afternoon naps...aww, thanks P!"


IMG_0327
"Pillow tester here! Ooh, just right."


IMG_0335
"This makes people watching so much nicer. (It is hard work, you know.)"


IMG_0337
"Is it snack time yet? A chewie, or a bone perhaps?"


IMG_0347
"That hit the spot. Time for a quick nap!"


IMG_0358
"ZZZ! (loud snoring = sleepy happy boy)"

blue steel? not so much...

Well, it's official.

Po may be a puppy of many faces - a crazy Monster Pants, a sleepy Potato Head, master of the Stink Butt - but Supermodel/Clothes Horse definitely ain't his bag, baby. (Even if he is very, very good looking. And definitely an ambi-turner! On speed.)

With it being pretty nippy out these days, I thought I'd be the hipster "parent" and pick up some swanky new threads for Mr. Pants. After much hemming and hawing I finally found a sweet, respectable little Paddington Bear-esque capelet. And brought it home, much to the dismay of happy naked Po...

"Lady, this is so not my colour..."


IMG_0396
Maybe he just needs to get used to it?


IMG_0415
Almost resigned. Almost.

IMG_0402
Can you feel the love?


Hmm, perhaps I'll have to return the puppy Uggs...
(I kid, I kid!)

method actor

In which the little dude tries on some looks...


IMG_0229
So regal...I am the Couch King!


IMG_0235
And yet, sensitive and quizzical and the same time. (Ha ha, as if the knucklehead ponders about much more than when lunch is!)


IMG_0219
Oooh, sad dog!

little action hero

And now for something completely different...

some goofy Po playtime!

video


(This is also from September... belated I know, but had to share the fun. Whee!)


happy days

...in which the Po bear romps in the afternoon September sun.

Definitely nice to remember, as we're now officially into the cold, slushy, dark-by-five pm-days of December!

IMG_7634

(I'm trying to catch up on the last few weeks - my, the little potato head has grown!)


IMG_7635

He was super thrilled to have so much grass to play in...


IMG_7643

...with lots of rolling around to be done.


IMG_7636

This just makes me smile. Half-bunny, half-pig, and there he goes!


IMG_7645

Oh, that squishy nose.

yawn study #2

From a slightly different point of view...


IMG_0199

IMG_0198

IMG_0204

He's honestly so much fun to watch in the mornings, the chubby little stumbly bear. (Once he actually wakes up and begins to terrorize the house, however, is a whole other story!)

yawn study #1

One of the benefits of working like a maniac for the last few weeks is that I was finally able to buy my very first "grown-up" camera. (Not that I don't love my little pocket point and shoot - we've been good buddies for quite awhile. But oh, the wicked call of the dslr...I couldn't resist!)

So while I figure out all the new buttons and doodads, I'm tickled to present The Po hard at work in his finest moments. The little dude yawns like no other!

Harrumph...and we're done!



sorry for the pause...

Eek, it's been too long!

We've been missing in action - life and work literally had me running around like a crazy person, but we're back, hooray.


IMG_0147

(oh, paws, I'm so silly, I know...)


More Mr. Po updates to follow very shortly!

wash & dry


Oh, that perfect puppy smell! It's something I just can't enough of...almost.

IMG_7595

With the cottage trip and a few romps in the park under his collar, Mr. P was starting to get a little, ripe, shall we say...


IMG_7596

Time for a scrub-a-dub for the little dude. Love the Mane 'n Tail - I feel like this bottle has been around forever!


IMG_7605

Good thing he's still small enough to fit in the kitchen sink. We are definitely not amused, says Po! (Although he seemed to enjoy the warm belly scrub part at least.)


IMG_7609

While we were at it, we did a good ear clean too (wow, do those bat ears ever get gunky...guess that's what you get for having those good-looking sails attached to the noggin!)


IMG_7612

...the fluffy towel awaits.


IMG_7616

And then a nice warm lap to snuggle in. Not a bad afternoon, that!


IMG_7618

Fuzzy and clean. The best of the puppy smells....

gone fishin'

We spent the last long weekend of the summer at a friend's cottage. The weather was amazing, the company even better; add a goofy puppy to the mix and I think we may have had the perfect little getaway...


IMG_7480
While we took in the view,


IMG_7483
seeing all the little lovely things around us,


IMG_7498
Po was busy snorting and snuffling around like a primo truffle pig in training.



IMG_7463
Jackpot! Bacon on the griddle...must beg and look really cute!


IMG_7531
He was a natural at the whole "lounging" thing...



IMG_7512
We had our so-bad-they're-good trashy magazines to flip through - Po was more than happy to gnaw away...



IMG_7571
First boat ride! (He fell asleep, good boy.)


IMG_7576
We met this handsome fella patiently fishing for guppies. He did manage to catch two or three.


IMG_7586
Back at the ranch, Mr. Grumpy Pants wants to know when dinner time is...


IMG_7590
...I smell barbeque in the air!
