Want to see our room?

For the last few days, the Princess and I have been confined to our room a lot. Dad says that it is for our safety while he and Momma install the new hardwood floor in the living room and hallway. I think he is scared that I'll get my tail nailed to the floor. I may be brave but I'm not stupid.

We've been very quiet and they make sure that we have frequent play breaks.

This is our room. Princess Eva has the green kennel that you see. She likes her kennel tucked away in a corner where she can pretend that it's a cave. My kennel is in another corner. But I rarely go in it. I prefer to make myself comfortable on the guest bed. Notice the artful bedding arrangement?

They still have a few more things to do to the living room but we will show you the finished product when they're done. They did choose colors that won't clash with our fur.

He's such a BOY

Eva: Brice, how could you do THAT to me?

Brice: Princess, I'm sorry. We were sniffing the same thing and I just had an uncontrollable urge to pee on it. I forgot that you were there. Really, I did!!

Eva: I don't care. YOU PEED ON MY HEAD!!!

Brice: But it was only a couple of drops.

Eva: That doesn't matter. What matters is that you did it!

Brice: You're lucky that my tank was dry. Otherwise, Momma would have had to give you a bath.

Eva: No, you're lucky that Momma gave me extra salmon treats because of it. We talked and decided that if you EVER do that again, she's going to hold you down and I get to pee all over of you. We'll be watching you.

Some of what we have been doing

Sorry we haven't been around much lately. We've been busy helping paint, installing doors, ripping out sub-floors etc. Next is installing the rest of the hardwood floor. Dad said we can't help install the crown molding because we're not tall enough.

For those that asked: Brice hasn't destroyed his new toy yet. Probably because I don't tug on it with him.

And Brice aka "the boy" has a small bladder infection. So Momma has to wrangle him twice a day to take his pills. If she tries to stuff it in a treat, he manages to eat the treat and spit out the pill and if she uses peanut butter, he licks the peanut butter off and spits out the pill. So she's doing the old fashioned way, opens his mouth and shoves it in.

Momma went to get a new toy

Since the Princess doesn't really play with toys other than her tennis ball, most of the toys are selected for me.

And the selection of not easily destructed toys is rather slim but here is one of my new toys.

Where you going?

We were playing together nicely and then Momma just turned around and walked away.

Where are you going Momma???

She didn't answer us. Do you know where our Momma went?

Snow!!! - more pictures added

Sorry for the bad picture but somepup ate Momma's boot so she wasn't willing to actually go out in the snow. We'll try for better pictures in the morning if the snow is still here.

Edited to add some pictures from this morning.

Eva going to bark at the neighbor dogs

Brice in motion as he normally is. He rarely walks anywhere.
Momma likes to describe him as "enthusiastic about life"

Zoomies in the snow!
Eva is angling to cut Brice off at the willow tree.

I was a bad, bad boy

Last night I went downstairs with Momma to discuss dinner with Dad. For some reason, I wanted to play "King of the Mountain" and hopped up on Dad's pool table. They stood there stunned while I did a few laps on it before they told me to get off it.

When Momma took me downstairs this morning to take this picture. I did it again. I foresee a "talk" with Dad tonight.

Years ago Dad built a pocket gate to keep any future dogs from being able to run up and downstairs between the two levels of our house. Since I have a tendency to find things downstairs and stash them in our room for destruction later, this gate is usually closed.

Later last night Momma noticed that I was not in the living room with them so she checked to make sure the gate was closed. She did find me in the hallway with a new "chew toy".
These were Momma's favorite yard raking, poo patrol, snow shoveling boots. She keeps them in the foyer which is on the other side of the gate. Guess she's the poo monitor for the next few days to make sure that everything is still processing.

I think I'll try to stay out of trouble for the rest of the day,
Brice, the Duke of Destruction
