Another Morning Fort Romp

I love going to the Fortaleza in the mornings so I can run with my friends and not worry. It is one of the few places in the Colonial Zone where I am permitted to run free.

My friend Zippy likes to meet Buenagente and I so she can play with us too. Well, today we go to the door all ready for some serious romping, neck biting, jumping, barking, growling and running, the usual play morning.

The door was closed!

We went to the door and stuck our noses in the crack. Nothing. We went to the street. We looked up the street. We looked down the street. Nothing.

Finally, someone came and opened the door. We were content.
We ran.

I got into the attack mode and made a run for Buenagente when I thought he was not looking.

Then we did some wrestling and had a great time.

We got tired after all the running around. Zippy was off in her own little world chewing on some stick like she likes to do. Buenagente and I went and sat next to mom to watch the world pass by with her. Mom likes it when we give her a little bit of attention. So we took a break to make the good ole mommy happy. What we doggies must do to keep our humans happy..lol.

First I looked to the left and Buenagente looked to the right, scanning the perimeter for enemies or intruders.

After we made sure all was clear and intruder-free we relaxed for a little bit. We rested while preparing for the next spurt of energy.

Then Zippy made a move! I was alert! Rest time was over. We were ready to move on to the second round of romping.

We played chase for a little bit. Then Buenagente grabbed the piece of wood that Zippy was playing with. Buenagente was so mean. He just chewed that piece of wood right up so Zippy could not play with it any more. It never bothers Zippy. She just finds another something to chew on and another and another…

It was a fun morning with my friends at the Fort. Thank you watchers of the door for opening it for us!

My Fun Day Sin Luz

Here in Dominican Republic the lights go out, sometimes often. Where I live the electricity is pretty good and it usually only goes out if there is a storm or if someone is working on a line. So, Thursday it was raining and the electricity went out in the evening. Then Friday in the morning the power went out in the morning and came back around 4 when the electric people were finished doing whatever work they were doing.

In the morning we did like we always did. Around 6AM mom took Buenagente and I out for the morning romp. Zippy was waiting for us in the street like she has been doing lately. She likes to come run and play with us at the Fortaleza Ozama.

After we had our fun mom took us back home. She fed us with some good dog food that a friend of Buenagente donated to help him. I usually get the everyday food that mom buys but she let me have some of Buenas food today.

Buenagente and I played a little after breakfast then we laid down for our nap. If you are wondering about this picture, Yes, I sleep with my eyes open. It really bugs mom but I cannot help it. I have no idea what my eyes are doing when I sleep.

Then the lights went out!

Mom told us to stay and relax that she had to go out and run a few errands since she could not work. She had to leave Buenagente and I in the house. She said Buenagente had to stay in because the last time he followed her to the Jumbo Express he decided to do some shopping too.

She told me the story:

Mom when into the store and 1 minute later here comes Buenagente walking down the isle to find mom! The store manager was running behind looking all frazzled. Mom left her cart an walked Buenagente outside, told him to stay and she went shopping again. She made it to the produce section and here comes Buena running down the aisle to find mom. It happened 2 more times. Each time someone opened the door Buena decided it was for him to go inside the store to be with mom. Finally Buenagente decided to wait outside.

Because of this mom made Buenagente stay in the house with me. We both barked out the window as we saw her going down the street. I was telling her not to forget some of those fine cows feet bones that I love so much.

When mom came back she put away the groceries and gave each of us a small bone for being such good kids while she was out. She thinks we were good because we make sure not to mess up the house but we had a good ole time while she was out..wink..wink.

The electricity was still out so mom decided to take us on a walk. We went to the sweet shop and mom got some of her favorite cheese, queso de hoja. She never can wait when she gets this. She opened the bag and pulled off a thin piece. Of course, mom always shares with us.

We walked around a little more. Checking out some of the road work that is still going on, Renovada Ciudad Colonial.

Then we went back to my neighborhood where I know everyone and I feel most comfortable. A man was selling a duster thingy that can reach up to the high ceiling and get rid of the cobwebs. Even though mom does not clean much (sorry mom) she got one.

Mom showed me and it was all nice. I do not care about that stuff. Then she showed Buenagente. He went crazy!

He was attacking that little fuzzy thing. He took the top off once. He thought it was his.

Buenagente got the crazy eyes, I taught him that. We were all watching him and laughing as he was attacking that duster. He is completely crazy sometimes.

Well, the lights came back. We finished visiting with the neighbors. I did a few tricks. We had a glass of water. We barked at some pigeons. Then it was time to head back home.

It was a fun afternoon “sin luz”!

Then mom brought Buenagente and I home. She gets silly and likes to put a hat on me. I really do not like it and decided that this year I would not put up with her silliness. Just give me my birthday bone and let me be. But, she tried putting that stupid hat on me anyhow.

The mom also tried putting the hat on Buenagente. He was not happy with it either. It was probably his first Birthday hat he ever had to fight with. Just wait until it is his birthday.

Mom snapped lots of pictures. She wanted us both to have our hats on together but we would not have it so she took the best pictures and stuck them together. I was busy eating my birthday bone so I did not pay attention to her much. I was so happy when she finally gave up on the hat idea and just let Buena and I alone to enjoy our bones.

Pharrell Williams’ – Happy (Puppy and Doggy Version) A fantastic parody re-written for dogs!

Some of the way too cute lyrics –
“I’m your best friend you can’t get away!
Cause I’m happy-
Bark along if you feel like your master loves you.
Wag along if you feel like your tail is chasing you.
Howl along if you want to cuddle from me to you.
Dog around if you think you’re my best friend, too.”
