Her favorite place

As per usual Daisy was hanging out in the diswasher, making sure all the dishes have been properly "rinsed". Though I think this time she was enjoying how cool it was in there.

Cooling vest

Daisy's cooling vest finally came, and of course now it is nice and cool out! At least now we have them ready for when it gets hot out again. One of my friends said she looks like a firefighter in this getup!

Almost cuddling

Micah is no longer a willing playmate for Daisy since she now outweighs him and her enthusiasm for wrestling with him has not dwindled. She charges at him and knocks him down, he is not a fan. He has taken to hissing all the time, even if she is nowhere near him, just for good measure. He usually doesn't tolerate her anywhere near him, so this is about as close as they get to cuddling these days.

Pillow pug

Sometimes you just need a whole pile of pillows to get comfortable!

Yucky bone

I recently got Daisy this Braided beef bone from Trader Joe's and she LOVES it. The problem is when she chews it she doesn't really seem to bite anything off, so it just gets these long stringy gummy ends on it. It is really gross and she always wants to come sit on someones lap when she chews it. Trust me, you don't want that thing touching you!

Daisy the Baker

My mom was making cookies this morning and Daisy did her best to help by "cleaning up" any flour that was spilled. What a good helper!

My Hero

I was fretting on google talk to my good friend Tiff about the heat today and how I was worried about Daisy. Normally she is home with my parents and they look after her, but today is the hottest day we have had to date and she is at home alone. Tiffany immediately offered to go check in on her since her office is a few minutes away from my house. My hero, seriously. I would just be sitting here worrying about her the rest of the day. Thank goodness for good friends! Tiff put on her cool Pugahontas poncho to help keep her cool the rest of the afternoon.

We don't have AC since there are not many hot hot days in the bay area, luckily when I make the move to DC the townhouse is air conditioned so I will not have to worry about little Daisy overheating. In the meantime I ordered her a cooling bed, and a cooling jacket. Let's hope these keep her cool otherwise it is off to doggie daycare on the hot days.

Daisy is a Graduate

Of obedience school that is. Last night was the final class for the beginning Canine education class at Petco and Daisy passed with flying colors. Well, okay she isn't that great at heel just yet but she is improving.

The dogs had to line up and do a sit, stay until told to come, this is something Daisy has gotten quite good at. She is quite enthusiastic when you say "Daisy come!"

They also had to do a down, stay. Daisy has mastered roll over, so when I tell her "down", she always starts to do roll over too, until I tell her no.

Daisy doesn't look like she believes she actually earned this!

We did it!

The proud graduates.

Staying cool

My mom finished Daisy's cooling pancho the other day and despite it not really being warm enough to need it, she thought Daisy should give it a try. It looks SO funny on her! She looks like a scout of some sort.

Doesn't she look comfy? This isn't posed at all, she got herself into this position.
