My New Favorite "Toy"

I love playing with this empty Mountain Dew bottle. I chase it all over the house! Now, if I could just 'catch' it! It's slippery and hard to get a grip on, but I'm not gonna give up!

Elvis Rules the House

I haven't written much about Elvis lately, so I thought I'd better post an update on the little guy. He is six months old now and growing into quite a handsome young man. I don't take as many pictures as I used to because he won't be still long enough for me to get a decent shot. He is very active and likes to play chase and hide and seek in the house. He also loves to fetch his Tennis ball. He growls and pounces on it like he is trying to kill it.

He is quite a little chow hound, always waiting for a bite if I am in the kitchen. He is only allowed to have healthy stuff, like chicken, cheese or fruit. Yes, he loves fruit! But then, I believe he would eat just about anything that wouldn't eat him first.

When I sweep the kitchen floor, he chases the broom, barking furiously at it. One day he discovered the toilet bowl brush, and the attack was on. He barks incessantly and nips at it every time he sees it. If I get the vacuum cleaner out, he runs and hides, but he loves to 'ride' the mop. He hangs for dear life by his teeth while I drag him around on it. And I might as well forget about dusting the furniture. He goes nuts when he sees the dust cloth. I wonder what the fascination is with cleaning implements? Oh well, I guess I won't be able to do much house cleaning when 'The King' is around!

I love my spirited little weenie dog! His perky personality never ceases to amaze me...He's always ready for a new adventure and meets each day with curiosity and enthusiasm!
