Camping at Warren Dunes State Park

This past weekend Mommy surprised me when she said, "Come on, Coco! We're going camping."

Arrroooo!! I couldn't have been happier.

So off we were. The whole gang. Mommy, Daddy, Gabie and me. That's the gang.

It was a nice, long ride to Michigan. We got there late. So we set up and went to sleep. The next day we got started. Here I am looking for any goodies on the picnic bench.

Here I am diggin' for gold! I guess you can call me a gold digger.

Here I am guarding our campsite. That was my job. Someone's gotta watch the pack, right? Especially in the wild! Heeheehee.

We went to the beach during our trip. We spent most of the day there. Gabie loves the water. I tried to go swimming but the water was not to my liking. It was too cold.

Here I am enjoying the moment. Ah, what a sweet life.

Gabie, is that marshmallow for me?? I managed to get a bite. I love camping! I can't wait to go again!

Another Day in the life of Coco

That's me right there getting ready for another perfect day for napping and soaking in the sun!
Yesterday evening I got lucky when Mommy and Daddy decided to make a steak salad for dinner. I always stand right next to them on guard for any dropped food. I am the foodguard in the family. That is my occupation. As soon as something hits the ground, I dash to it and gobble it up! Yum yum yum! I bet I could beat cookie monster at gobbling food up! Mommy and Daddy dropped lots of food here and there just as I predicted.
After eating, I plopped down on the couch and joined mommy as she watched "The Bachelorette". She has never seen this show before and last night was the season premiere so she thought she'd give it a try. I liked it! Some of those guys look like sleazeballs! I barked because I wanted to warn The Bachelorette but I don't think she heared me. I will try harder next time.

Summer is near, and Coco's here!

I have been away from this blog for so long but I am back now. Yes, Coco is back!

So much has happened between then and now. I wouldn't know where to start. But I will begin from this day forward. Mommy has been so busy this year. She is busy with school and trying to be a nurse. But, she is off for the summer now so that means I will have a mommy around all the time. How wonderful is that? Mommies can sure come in handy sometime. Like when I start craving a dingo. Who else would be able to know that I'm craving a Dingo? Mommies have psychic abilities. That is the cool thing about mommies.

This past weekend was tons of fun. We went to my favorite park, Allerton Park, located in Monticello, IL...only about a 20 minute drive from us. Those winds felt good. The smells at the park were even better. Especially with Daddy grilling some hot dogs. They also brought along some chips n' dip. Delightful in every way. Especially when some fell on the ground. Here's the gang at the park. Mommy is taking the picture.

Yesterday Mommy got her very first bike as an adult. I will have to get a picture of my mommy and her new bike. The last time she rode a bike was when she was about 10 years old. Mommy was just as excited as a child though! She rode like an expert. A bit wobbly at first but don't tell her I said that.

I hope she gets one of those baskets so she can put me in there when she goes bike riding!

Tricks and Treats!

I'm having a great day today! It's Sunday and that's family day.

Today on family day, mommy taught me a new trick. I already know a few tricks: Sit, Stay, Stand, Dance, Lie Down, Roll Over and Shake Paw. The new trick I learned is Shake Other Paw. It took me a little while to figure it out, I kept trying to shake the same paw. But I finally learned to shake the other paw after shaking the left paw.

I got so many treats today!! I'm so happy.

My visit to the vet the other day went well, by the way. I got a shot but I swear I didn't even feel it! Mommy says I'm done with vet visits for a long time now. Good!

Going to the DOGTOR today!

Hello everybody! It has been awhile since I logged on, mommy has been so busy with school and you know I don't have a clue how to turn on the computer!

Well today is my lucky day! Ok, not really. I am going to the dogtor for my checkup. I seem to go to those a lot. Maybe not but that's how it feels.

Of course you know mommy just had to give me a bath. She bought a new shampoo, it's supposed to make me snowy white. Here I am after my bath.

It's not a very good picture because it came out blurry. There I am wearing my new sweater, ready for my visit to the dogtor! I'll let you know how it goes.

Another week is here!

It's monday again and that means another week is here. I was home by myself guarding the house. It's a big responsibility for a dog! Anyway, while I was guarding the house I was also daydreaming about this past weekend. Let's see...

I got groomed this weekend! Mommy put this silly shirt on me.

On Sunday we went out for a drive to the park. The wind felt good against my fur!

The park was so much fun! I love the outdoors.

I got tired though so when we went back in the car, I got in my favorite spot right away!

Oh my goodness! After that we went to an ice cream store and got ice cream. I even got my own!
I am drooling now, pardon me.

Today I went to the groomer's! I got a haircut so I feel very nice and cool. It's hot out today so it came at perfect timing. While I was getting groomed, mommy got me 2 new sweaters for when the weather starts getting cold. I will have mommy take some pictures of my new haircut soon.

I also wanted to share with you that last week I tried these for the very first time:

Oh boy! Were those like a taste of heaven or what!! I especially liked them because I was really hot that day. Mommy had taken me out for a walk and it was sunny and warm.

See? I was very hot.

Here, I am cool again! I love Frosty Paws and I love mommy!
