Getting ready for the new arrival!

My Mom and Dad keep talking about this new "baby" that is coming. I don't really think I know what that means, but they've been buying all kinds of crazy stuff and toys that I can't even play with. I've been supervising their decorating in the new room that all this new stuff has gone in.

4-legged Steelers fan!

We have really been negleting the blog...there is a lot going on with planning for our new arrival in January - and this time we mean the "two-legged" kind! We are not sure if it is a boy or girl - waiting for it to be a surprise - but we know that Malu and Bogart will love it... Maybe not at first, but it will definitely make things interesting for a while.

But...besides getting ready for the baby, Malu has been helping us cheer on our favorite football team with her own gear - a timely present from her Mom-Mom and Pop-Pop!

Malu wins another award!!

Our friend Janice submitted a picture of Malu from when she was about 3-4 months old to a local business magazine called "The Metropolitan" for the cutest pet contest. A couple weeks ago, we got a check in the mail addressed to Malu since she won 2nd place!! How exciting! However, I must say that after seeing the 1st place winner, I think Malu is much cuter!! That other puppy isn't even doing anything?!?!

Here's the picture:

Here is a closer look of the picture that was taken April/May 2008.

Vacation in OBX!

Malu and Bogart went on their second vacation to OBX...and once again they loved it! Since Malu was bigger this time, and more familiar with water, she wasn't afraid of the waves at all, and would jump/leap into them and swim with her Daddy! Here are some pictures from our week.

Malu at the beach...

*Leaping over waves*

*When you gotta go, you gotta go!*

All that playing would make her pretty tired the rest of the day, so she found numerous people to "cuddle" with...

Bogart did a lot of lounging and "cuddling" too...

*Bogart took over the starfish chair the entire week*

*And he made new pals with Ed*

Malu also did some begging for snacks and dancing with her Daddy...

And here are a couple videos of her playing with her Daddy and some new friends she met...a Visla named Jack and a terrier, also named Jack.

We also had some exciting news for Julie and Shawn...they got engaged while we were there! YAY!

And here we are relaxing on the deck...

Malu got a New Pool!

Malu loves the water, so we decided to get her a baby pool so that she can enjoy the water and cool off on hot days. She was a little unsure at first, but once her paws hit the water - it was second nature!

*And did I mention she loves drinking from the hose?!? Her boyfriend Drake taught her that*

*I'm not sure what she is digging for, but I think she just likes making the water splash!*

*Then she gave in completely and just laid in the pool. AAAHHH how refreshing*

*This is the best*

*And of course I still keep watch of what goes on in the neighborhood - just from the pool now*

Bogart is Very Sneaky!

Bogart decided he was tired and wanted to "get away" for a little he tried hiding behind the curtains. It reminded me of when someone tries putting a lampshade over their head to look like a standing lamp.

*I think you caught me*

*Oh well, guess I'll just go to sleep right here*

My First Boat Ride!

Mom and Dad took me to Cape May, NJ with them for Memorial Day weekend - but they really go to celebrate their anniversary (2 yrs)! Last year, I stayed with Mom-Mom and Pop-Pop when they went, but this year I got to go. It was so fun. I got to ride on a big boat for the first time. We just drove on and off we went. Dogs were allowed on the boat so here are some pics of my first boat trip.

*Me & Dad*

*Taking a stroll around the boat*

*I met a new friend named Kipper. He's a yellow lab too*

*Here I am sitting with Kipper's little sister and his Dad*

*I was such a good girl on the boat*

*Getting a better view*

Once we finally got to Cape May, we just lounged around and went for many walks. And of course...I was still able to sleep with Mom and Dad*

*One of their favorite things from last year was hanging out on the front porch in the rocking chairs. I got to do that with them too!*

It was such a fun weekend!

Lime Green Paws!

Since I am so good about my electric fence, and never leave the yard, my Dad lets me come out with him when he is doing some work, even when he can't watch me the whole time. On this day, I decided to "supervise" him while he cut the grass. It had just rained the day before, so the grass was still kinda wet, and with it freshly cut...It turned my paws GREEN!!! Lime green to be exact.

It's kinda hard to see, but if you look real close, you can tell! Oops!

Relaxing after a Hard Day!

I am usually not allowed on the couches (on the ottoman/chair) but I was so cute they way I curled up to nap, that my Mom said she didn't have the heart to make me get down...especially since I was letting her get stuff done!!
