I didn't want to waste the opportunity yesterday but I didn't want to be greedy either, so I only made 2 wishes.

1. Play with my squirrel - got to do that
2. Have a nice yummy knuckle bone - Momma took some out of the freezer for us to have today but it's raining so we have to wait until tomorrow since we are only allowed to have raw bones outside.

Whenever Dad turns away from me during "Squirrel", I always lay down and chew on the corners. As soon as he turns towards me, I get up and take it back so that he can throw it again. Momma says that there are pros and cons to me being so responsive to body language - it can make training easier but sometimes I respond to unintentional body language/facial expressions.

After a good game of Squirrel and Ball, Dad was on the patio listening to the MN Vikings/Favre press conference when Eva demanded attention.
Yes, her neck is UNDER the armrest. Belgians are often lovingly referred to as "pointy-nosed pests" for many reasons including if they can get their snooter through something, the head will follow.

It's still raining so we're off for a nap. Hopefully, it will stop raining so that we can video a response to Thunder and his Flying Squirrel

Woof ya later!

p.s. In case you are wondering, his shirt today is for Dropkick Murphys. I think they are classified as Irish punk. He does prefer Flogging Molly for that genre. Momma doesn't like either one.

I'm sure woo won't believe this BUT I do the same snoot and point - I'll find a route in - trust me!

I was wondering about what your dad thought about retire/not/retire/not/retire/NOT!

As fur your wishes, please tell me I was number three!!!???!!!

Always good to save a wish for a rainy day - hey, you got one today, so wish away. TD will be thrilled to see your video response, umm, he has one corner off his squirrel so far.

Woos, the OP Pack

Moco said...

Hopefully Eva was able to get her head out of the chair.

Sparky said...


Is Eva's head really under the chair armrest? That's very tricky!

I hope you both have a grrrrEAT weekend,

Eva looks so sweet and snuggly!!!
And I just LOVE that you're chewing the corners of your flying squirrel! :) I have a feeling I'd do that, too!

Knowing body language is one of a dog's all important gifts. We see that you use it to your best advantage!

The Thundering Herd said...

Don't get stuck, Eva! That would be embarrassing.

P.S. - Brice - Natasha says you are always welcome to come and knock the white fluffy pup around. She does it all the time. Consider it like a flying squirrel that needs its corners chewed.

P.S.S. - Qannik - Hey !

Lorenza said...

I know Brice will teach Thunder the right way to play that squirrel!
Kisses and hugs

Woooos! I like how you snuggle, so cute. The squirrel is fun,
but I hope you got the bone, that is even better.

Pee Ess Woo, -Mommy likes Flogging Molly too, but dropkick murphy's are too punk for her.

Stella said...


Maybe if you are so responsive to body language, its really that old service dog in you, trying to come out!

You and your sis are so smart and beautiful!


Wild Dingo said...

I try to feed them the raw knuckles outside...but they always bring it in. darn dogs! so i limit them to their washable beds... sigh. darn dogs don't know much about bacteria and keeping the house clean!

Owner of Storm and Jackal said...

I'm with you on the rain. We need it but I don't want it. I'm taking a huge risk right now being on the computer. Hope the electricity doesn't go out. Sigh.

Hero said...

Nice job at being so sneaky Brice! That's exactly what I would do if I had a flying squirrel. I'm gonna let my mom see woor pics so that she can get the hint, too.

Isn't there some statistic about a large percentage of communication being non-verbal? It sounds like you're just very good at that!

Give Eva a play bow for me.
