Morning Sand Pile Romp

Mom took a video of me, Zippy and Beza playing on the sand pile this morning. We so love these plies of sand left there just for us to romp around in.

This is the day before when I got to romp with Julio and Beza in the same pile of wonderful soft and fluffy sand.

Sometimes I all of a sudden get into my crazy Teli mode and just go nuttsy.

I hope that you all find your perfect sand pile and can play in it to your hearts content.

Morning Romp With Friends 12-15-2014

Today my friends and I decided to take a good run in the Plazoleta y Callejónde los Curas behind the Cathedral since they left the gate open. I knew they were inviting us to take a run there.

Mom said she was laughing at us passing by the opening at the end of the alley. We all ran past in one direction then in the other.

After we made a few runs back and forth we all had to come out the alley to check on mom. I always like to check on her if I lose sight of her for more than a few minutes just to make sure she is OK.

Mom was fine so we went back to our playtime but Lola stayed for a few minutes with mom because Zippy was getting a little too rough with her and she needed a little rest time. Everyone runs to mom if they are getting picked on too much so she can protect them from whoever is being the meanie at that time.

Finally Lola decided she could not stay out of the romp any longer and she went after Zippy who was rounding the corner to continue running in the Plaza while Buenagente and I did some wrestling.

After a while we were pooped out. Buenagente wanted a drink of water and Lola followed close behind. I waited for Zippy to catch up because I know when Buenagente takes a drink it takes forever. He always has to be first. I have no idea where he stores all that water he laps up.

After we all took our turns taking a drink mom took the container upstairs and refilled it. When she brought it back down she had some dog food for everyone.

It was a good morning.

Romping At Ruinas San Nicolas de Bari

As I always write. I love my early morning walks especially when all the friends are together. And even more especially when my best friends Buenagente and Zippy are with me.

This morning Buenagente was waiting for us outside. We greeted each other then Buena went to greet mom and we went to look for Zippy and anyone else who wanted to join in the morning romp. We always start the search at Plaza Bartolomé de las Casas.

I finally figured out how to crawl into the little tiny opening in the gate. All the other dogs do it but I never had the nerve to squeeze in there until last week. Now I do it all the time.

I go in and round-up anyone that wants to come and play. Zippy was the only one there.

So off we went.

We ended up going inside the gates of the Ruinas Hospital San Nicolas de Bari where we could run and play.

First we went to check out the water supply for when we got thirsty. We all had to take a taste and Buenagente had to tip-tie through all the Bougainvillea waiting to be planted.

Zippy, who always has to be carrying something in her mouth, found something. As usual both Buenagente and I wanted it. Zippy knows this and runs and we pursue her in a great fun chase. Uusally Buenagente gets whatever Zippy has off of her. Zippy does not care. She just looks for something else to carry around.

We always sound scarey when we run around. We make growling noises and people think we are serious fighting.

After the run we had to get a drink of water. Then we went to sit and relax a bit next to mom while we checked out the action in the parking lot next door. Zippy was too tired and she was laying down away from us protecting her new find.

First there was a noise in one direction.

After this we all walked back towards home.

In front of my house we ran into Pokey. Since Pokey did not get to join in the morning romp I decided to play a game with her.

I grabbed a bag that smelt good that was laying in the street. I ran with it.

Pokey and Zippy were in hot pursuit but I play keep-away really well. I ran, dodged, twisted and turned and they could not catch me.

Finally it was time to go inside so mom could work. I let my friends have the bag and off I went to home to relax while mom worked.

It was a good morning romp.

A Morning Walk 11-20-2014

I so love our morning walks.

I usually start waking mom up around 5AM if she is still asleep. Usually she is awake but if she is not I go up real close to her face and stare at her. As soon as she starts to open her eyes I give her a few little wet kisses to say good morning. After she tells me good morning then I get a little more rambunctious and bounce around on the bed a bit just to get her motivated.

There are some days when I need a little extra help getting her motivated. If she sleeps past 6AM then all I need to do is bark and Buenagente (I do not let Buena into my house anymore now that he is not sick) who is usually sleeping outside on the stairs or in the entryway of the building, will bark. Mom gets up then because she does not want Buenas barking to disturb the neighbors because it echoes up and down all the floors of the building.

We are both pretty smart don’t you think? (when I am saying this I am snickering like Muttley in the cartoons that mom showed me and probably wish she never did).

When we got outside this day Buenagente was waiting patiently on a sand pile for us.

After Buenagente greets mom and they do a little bit of hugging and talking it is my turn. We first do a little face lick then we commence wrestling and playing before we start walking, picking up other friends along the way.

Today we were walking and this funny little dog poked his head out of a hole at the bottom of a door and started barking.

Buenagente and I thought he was just too funny with his head sticking out of that hole. We had to go and tease him and make him bark some more because he was stuck and could not come out side to play with us. Poor guy. He was not very happy (another Muttley snicker).

We picked up Zippy and Fuzzy on the way walking to Plaza España to romp a bit with us. The more the merrier.

After playing around there for a while mom said it was time to go. She had to stop and get some fruit for breakfast. Then we went to Parque Colón and she had a little plastic shot of coffee while I kept trying to get into the trash with my friends. Sometimes mom does not see me right away and I find some good treats left from the local restaurants. Most of my friends dine here I do not understand why I am not allowed.

After mom had her coffee and called me out of the garbage a few times we headed home. Fuzzy turned back to where he lives to take his nap after breakfast.

As we passed the entrance to Fortaleza Ozama Zippy saw the door open. She always checks for the open door. She and Buena went to go inside and mom let me follow. We got to go into out favorite place for a quick run.

Zippy and I ran all around but Buenagente was too interested in the cats to come running this morning. Zippy and I had fun without Buenagente. If he would rather stare at cats that is up to him. Crazy Buena.

After a few rounds we left to go home. Mom had to get some work done.

Zippy and Buenagente had a little dog food inside the entrance to the building and mom and I came into the apartment.

Mom made her coffee and some drink she likes. I had a big drink of water and headed to the sofa.

When came out to the living room to start work she found me. Laying on my back next to my bone on the sofa. I was pooped out and ready for my mid morning nap.
