Serious business and HE.........

Mum took me and STINKY to UBC's Thunderbird field this afternoon for a walk. There are rarely any dogs at Thunderbird field, so mum decided it was a good place to take STINKY and have him exposed to the outdoors. STINKY this STINKY that.... geez..

The car ride to UBC was about 10 minutes, and guess what, STINKY fell asleep!! Give me a break, who falls asleep during a 10 minute car ride especially when you're about to go on a walk?? I tell ya, he's really not very smart..

Now because he fell asleep, mum decided to let him sleep in the car for a bit, and MADE ME POSE for photos........

C-K-C and Lillie, how do I look with my tag blings??

Thank doG STINKY woke up shortly after, and he fell victim to mum's camera. I guess I was a teeny bit happy, at that moment, that he came to live with us. The paparazzi is now ONTO HIM!! (mum: you wish) You can see STINKY's photos from today on his blog, I don't share my blog with anyone.

Then it was on to SERIOUS business. You know what I LOVE to do everytime I come to UBC right?? I love to hunt! So I started sniffing to see if I can find a scent trail.

Don't ask, I have no idea what HE was doing. HE, certainly wasn't helping me find my prey.

I wasn't having much luck at first, so I went and found a huge stick and I ran around with it.

STINKY tried to get my stick, but he got smacked in the face by the stick when I turned to look at him. HAHAHAHAHA!! (mum: he was ok, not bothered by it at all)

As we walked further along the field, I located THE source.

There were holes all over, so I knew there MUST be something under! I started digging, while HE laid there watching.

HE tried to help I think, but he did it all wrong. HE stuck his nose in the snow instead of the holes.....

See, this is how it's supposed to be done.

Close up,

I was there, at the holes for almost a WHOLE HOUR trying to get the little bugger out. I whined and barked and got frustrated. In the end, I still didn't catch the little bugger. Mum said there were just way too many holes for it to get away... HMMMPH!

This was my face after an hour of being in the hole

My feet

I was very warm after all that digging/whining/nosing, so I had ate some snow

A close up (mum didn't realize she had snow on the lens, so that's why there were blur spots in the photo)

I saw a frozen puddle, so I went and cooled my tongue off on the ice. HE of course, had to copy what I was doing.....

I ran, HE ran........

So we moved on. While I was walking, I saw a dog stalking me from afar. He laid down to watch me, so I put on my stalking form too and stalked him back.

Now look at what the STINKY was doing while I was concentrating on stalking. Not only was he NOT helping, he ran back to mum when it was time for us to stand up to the stalker!! Gee... I really can't count on him for anything..... (sorry about the blur spots)

It was a pretty fun afternoon, and I gotta admit, I'm not as bothered by STINKY when I'm outside as I am at home. Mum says I'm much better on neutral grounds.

Now you remember my feet and my face right? This is how mum cleaned them!! That's the second bucket of water used to clean my face, and that dirty bucket you see at the end, that was from my feet!!

Oh Sunshade, I LOVE the new pictures of you... you look so GLAMOROUS!!!

And the video of you and Jaffa running around is sooooo cute... it looks like fun!!!

Hi Miss Sunshade:
Be patient with the stink bomb. It will help you out in the long run. You see, your mum isn't going to get rid of him. At least not for awhile. Take it from an expert. I had Daisie, and I could handle her- she was well behaved. THen we got Lillie, and she drives me nuts. She gets annoying at times, but I have to love her. My mom isn't going to get rid of her. So I say, if you can't beat um' join um'. Just keep tellin her who the boss is. That's what I do and that little Lillie tows the line!
Hang in there girl!
Mr. Whiskers

Joe Stains said...

sunshade you look so pretty in pink! Jaffa seems like as much of a nuisance as the doofus!

Lacey said...

Wow, you got to dig a hole for an entire hour, and Jaffa didn't even get in your way! Every time I try to dig a hole, Comet horns in on it.

Looks like you had a pretty good afternoon regardless of the Stink. I don't know if I would want a Stink or not... That's a really clever way to clean your nose, though.

Love and Licks,
Texas (and his humans).

Oscar's mummy and daddy said...

That's a neat way to clean your face! Your feet were VERY dirty!

Looks like you had fun in spite of STINKY tagging along. I'm sure he'll learn fast that you are the boss lady!

wally said...

miss sunshade--i know all about STINKIES and i feel your pain. glad you are doing your best to protect the honor of your mum's leg and you seem to be training the stinky well.


ps. i fall asleep on car rides. but i'm an old man.

Anonymous said...

oooh he has SOOOOO much to learn!!! :p aren't you at least a little glad that he's so stupid? first of all you're already a supersmart superdale, but beside him you'll look even better! :) hehe... and besides, if he knew how to dig too you would have to share those critters with him. ugh!

i agree it's too much humping your mom's legs outside of the house! stinky needs a big sister like you!!!


jaffeboy said...

U still do the head tilt? Good job. That is always a winner for treat & junk food begging.

umekotyan said...

The image of this snow is very beautiful.
And, sunshade digs up the hole.
The dirt of water is dirt of the surface. :)

Murphey said...

Miss Sunshade:

You've got to help Jaffa ..he needs to learn to be a a superhero dale too....You have so much to teach ......

GREAT charms....supermodel is the only word needed.....

You look great and luv your shadow...

Chelsea said...

Sunshade, you are gorgeous in that pink halter leash darling!

May I say that stinky is completely and utterly adorable ....only because stinky is a smaller version of you ofcourse. :)


Jemma Chihuahua said...

Oh Sunshade, your attitude towards Jaffa is like mine towards Dopey. I ignore him the same way and he FOLLOWS me everywhere. He likes being a pest. He would probably run off too when it comes time to stand up to another dog!


Herbie said...

oh... it's good that you keep yourself clean after play. You won't want to end up smelling like stinky, would you?

Isabella said...

Oh Sunshade! I am so sorry that you don't like having Stinky around. Personally, I love having a little sister, but I understand that you don't like another dog in your home. We can't help how we feel, can we? I hope you aren't too terribly unhappy and hopefully he will leave for his forever home soon.
Big Wags,

Girasol said...

I like your new pics.
I see some snow in the park, here in DC metro area: nada, nothing! oh this wheateris crazy.
Say hello to your little friend (with a hispanic accent) for me.

Samson & his Mummy Juliet said...

Oh Sunshade! I have not dropped by for a while so had no idea about poor old you having to share your home with a STINKY!! Nooooooooooooooooooo! Aaaaaarrrgggghhhhhh! Gulp. Chin up old bean. Keep guarding Mum!

P.S the close up picture of you licking you and your tongue is fabaroony!!!!


Marvin -The Hollow Hound said...

Your game with the other doggie looked fun though, lots of good butt sniffing going on there!

And of course, Sunshade, you look as glamourous as ever.

Stinky don't seem too bad to me, but of course I am too far away to smell him!! love and cold licks from Marvin in Snowy, Snowy, Snowy Scotland at long last. There is a blizzard outside at this very moment!
