Bamboo This December
Lani as a pup in March of 2008
Notice any resemblance? Looking back at old pics of Lani - Boo's mom surprised to see just how much they look alike. 4 years apart about the same age.

Hard at Work

Bamboo sitting in front of the floor to ceiling window in my office, hoping that someone will come by and ask to play. You can just see the dog snot smeared on the window.

Big Girl Collars

Bamboo's big girl collar

Big Girl Bamboo! Looking just like her Mama Lani
We spend more money on Waffle's accessories than we do on ourselves. With spring weather here, we had to get her something new. We took a nice hike and then hit the pet store and the do-it-yourself doggie bath place. This is her just before she passes out for the night. You'll notice she is on my bed! I was in the process of changing the sheets and she was on my heels waiting for me to finish so she could get comfortable for the night. Spoiled is thy name

The other pictures are of Bamboo moving into her big girl collar, this used to be a big thing because like carnival rides 'you must be this big' to wear your adult collar. GDB used to have this brass name plate on the collar that kept them from being shortened enough to fit the smaller pups. Most of my girls have been on the small side and it usually took them to 10 or 11 months before they could wear them, it seemed like FOREVER before they could wear them and such a big moment when they did. Well it still is a big moment when the pups move into their big girl collars, but GDB recently stopped using the brass plates, now they just attach a simple dog tag. The difference? well Bamboo's half sister Limerick turned 1 this month and she finally fits into her big girl collar (she has the old plate version), and Boo moved into her BGC at 7 months. 

And finally.............

My new boyfriend

Isn't he handsome! his name is Rocky and he's and east coast guy (the guiding eye foundation), our eyes met across the crowded cafeteria, our tails wagged and before our peeps could say no, we were swappin' sniffs to say hello.

Bamboo and Rocky sitting in the sun.
Well since we met, he has dropped by to visit. His mom took off his harness so we could play. Not sure if he likes me for me or because my office has toys and a bed. We shall see....

silly Rocky demonstrating the 'frog dog' pose
BFF thought it would be fun to see me in harness, she asked Rocky and his mom thought it would be hilarious to see him in my puppy jacket. I'm a petite little girl only 40lbs and well Rock he's a big bruiser at 80lbs easy. So his harness had to be on the smallest setting and my jacket expanded all the way would only fit around his neck. It needed another 12 inches or so to make it around his chest. 

Me, trying on Rocky's harness
One day.....

No not for me, but my bud. Waffle and I where playing don't know what happened, one moment he was fine and the next it was lights and sirens to the stuffie ER.

Help any ideas

Bamboo and I are going to be photographed for National Library week ad. It is just going to run on campus, but I still am uber excited to have the pup pictured around campus.

But I need HELP! We get to choose a book to be pictured with, as Bamboo doesn't really read yet what book do you think she would like? Thunder Dog? Marley and Me? A Ball for Rosy?

Help! - we have to choose one over the weekend 'cause we need to take the pictures next week.

Dear Waffle

Waffle pretending to be asleep on my pillows

Dear Waffle, 
you do know the bed is mine right? If there was a mis-communication let me be clear, you may not sleep on my pillows, and my the blankets are to be shared equally. Oh yeah one more farting

the poop head plants her fuzzy butt in the most inconvenient places, then she pretends to be asleep- matter how hard I shake her. She also likes to cozy up to you, sleeping in the crook of you knee or curled up to your back, eventually though what started out as warm and cozy turns into the surface temp of the sun, and then she has to go. But of course you have to wake her 1st. Silly Labbie

Did someone say......

Happy New Year

The CEO of Girl Scouts of the USA!
Bamboo  in front of the Natural Balance Float

Living and or working anywhere near Pasadena, means that around New Years there is a good chance you will be involved somehow with the Rose Parade.

Add to that the Girl Scouts are celebrating their 100th birthday - and it was destined that Bamboo had to go out and help with the Rose Parade Float decorating.

Stymied by the lack of thumbs, she resorted to being a great cheer leader. Every where she went, the Girl Scouts who were decorating the float loved all over the baby, some were very excited when they heard they could raise a dog for their gold award. Bamboo is so jazzed about going to camp this summer, as long as it means she gets to play with all of girls there.  The CEO of GSUSA was there and we got a picture with her! We will post that later.

In front of the Girl Scout Float
The Girl Scout Float

A rolling kennel decorated to look like an old school woody station wagon

 The flowers were amazing, thousands upon thousands of roses in every shade, we wandered over to see both the Girl Scout and Natural Balance floats. The NB float is the longest and heaviest float. It has a wave pool where Tillman and his friends will be surf boarding down Colorado Blvd. I thought there were going to be guide dogs involved, but not this year. :(        

That little station wagon up top, is actually an enclosed kennel, once the dogs reach the end of the wave pool, they hop into the car and are driven back to the front of the wave pool!

Great outing for her, there were tons of people, smells and noise. She did pretty good, at first she wasn't sure she wanted to be there, but like the new kid at school, once she made friends all she wanted to do was play. Everyone loved her! She really doesn't like to take pictures and sat there sulking every time I made her pose. Poop Head

From our pack to yours Happy New Year, may your water bowl never run dry and your kibble be bountiful.
