I'm ba-ack!

Wrooo, everypup. Now I'm making progress - I've gotten The Girl to do blogging two days in a row! We're working on getting back to every day.

Anywoo, I have exciting news! Scooter (and Sunny, we're sure!) gave us an award! Scooter did a little something different, and we got to choose the award we wanted. So we chose the You Lift My Spirit Award, because reading their blog always lifts our spirits!

The Girl and I are so far behind on our blogging, so here's what we're gonna do. This award is given to any of our readers who could use a little lifting of their own spirits. Please take it with our love!

If you saw my second post yesterday, then you saw me in a state that hardly ever happens... I was NAKED!!! Here's another picture of me in all my naked glory:

Don't I look happy? I really hate having to wear a collar. Really, really, REALLY hate it. I scratch at it, I shake my head, I scratch at it again. The Girl knows I hate having one on, but she makes me wear one all the time. She is paranoid about me getting lost and if I'm not wearing my collar, it will take longer for people to know where my home is. I do have a tattoo in my ear, but my collar has a tag with my phone number on it. So she says I have to wear it. Even though I hate it.

But I got to be NAKED for a few minutes yesterday! Then the worst thing happened: The Girl put a NEW collar on me! It's about twice as wide as my old collar, and I hate it, hate it, hate it. The Girl says that I look very handsome, and that Lucky Fiona did a great job on the new collar and leash. Hmmmpphhh. As if I need a collar to make me look handsome! But I do have to admit that the new pattern is particularly stunning against my chocolate fur.

Ahem. There were actually two collars in the package for me; only one has a matching leash, though. Here is the one without the matching leash:

I am looking up at the treat she is trying to bribe me with.

Not impressed. This collar is also wide, and I also hate it. And I was NOT into posing yesterday! But The Girl says that she really likes this one, too, because it's very fun. Huh, I didn't think it was much fun. I even went Upside Down to try to convince her to take it off me:

(The Girl here. Isn't this a fun pattern? Lucky Fiona did a super job! The name of the pattern isn't on her site anymore, so I can't tell you what it is.)

Then, she took the collar off of me! I thought that she'd finally come to her senses, but NO! She put another new collar on my neck! I am NOT impressed...

The Girl says this is the Poindexter pattern. Whatever that means. She adores this collar, which has a matching leash.

Now she is bribing me to pose.

All right, all right. Here's the shot...

Then, just when I thought it was all over, we went outside. Which I normally love, but The Girl snapped my new leash on to my new collar, and she wanted me to pose AGAIN. She has to bribe me. No poses unless you bribe me.

Well okay then! That's more like it!

I AM quite handsome in this pattern, aren't I?

So those were yesterday's adventures. So far today, there has been no sign of new collars. Although I'm still wearing the Poindexter. Sigh.

Oh my Dannan! You are uber handsome in those collars! (We don't like them either. Scooter gets away with hardley ever wearing one cuz he has kinda a bad neck. And wearing a harnss around all the tim doesn't work.He wears a collar with tag when we go somwhere) I have a collar all the time! And the tags and metal on the collars make my neck gray!They are a pain.
Yours do look VERY nice!

Those are very pretty collars, but you do look happier without one ...

that is a GREAT collar, Mom just loves it. I don't mind wearing one so much, and it sure is important if you ever get lost!
