Lucky's Coming to Dinner!

This past week the Shih Tzu family was invited over for dinner to the Scottie family's house. Do you know what that meant? I had another chance to woo my Scottie crush Heather! My previous attempts so far have been for naught, but I wasn't about to give up.

As soon as we arrived, I immediately cornered her and made sure we got some alone time to chat. Communication is key in any relationship and I wanted to make sure my Heather Beather knew I was always there for her when she needed to talk. That's us above, don't we make a cute couple?

I had the best plan for dinner. Scottie Mom had made her Papa's famous sauce so we were having pasta. I wanted to reenact that famous scene from Disney's Lady and the Tramp where they have their first kiss over a heaping plate of spaghetti and meatballs. What is more romantic than that? Alas, my plan was squashed by the Moms. Something about how we should eat our own food and the humans should eat theirs. Harumph. I waited under the table anyway just in case one of the Dads might "accidentally" drop something for me.

Not a single meatball hit the floor. Sigh.

Unfortunately, not even the Dads wanted to share their food. Now that dinner was a wash, I didn't know what else to do. I went to the couch in the hopes that Heather would still want to cuddle with me but once we were there, the Moms thought it was the perfect time for a photo shoot (they always think it's the the perfect time for pictures!). So Heather's brother Mr. K got up there with us and we had to pose for what seemed like forever. We did get some treats as a reward though, so that was a small consolation.

Three amigos!

Even though my romantic endeavors were unsuccessful, I was still happy we all got to see our friends. Don't worry Heather, I will return!

Grandpuppy Power

Do you know what is almost as good as being an only fur baby? Being the favorite fur grandbaby! Shih Tzu Mom's parents came to visit us this weekend. Mom's mom is from the Philippines so we call her the Tagalog word for "grandma" which is "lola". Shih Tzu Lola and Papa love coming to see me. You can see above how Lola just couldn't put me down. Do you know how else I can tell that I am the favorite grand puppy? Because she has my picture as the home screen on her phone. If I beat out the human grandkids you know I have to be someone special!

My favorite thing that I did with Shih Tzu Lola (other than the cuddling of course!) was work in the yard. I like being in the yard so I kept Lola and Mom company and supervised as I am very good at doing that.

Bushes trimmed? Check!

I stayed out there almost the whole time. The only part I don't like is the big scary leaf blower. Why Shih Tzu Mom can't just sweep is beyond me.

Now don't worry, Shih Tzu Papa didn't get left out of the fun! We played an indoor game, hide and seek!

Oh hi. How did you find me?

It was a short visit but I was glad to get to see them. Next time, we will all need to go visit them at their house so I can run around their awesome back yard and pond! I haven't said hello to my geese friends in a while...

Lucky and Friends

Hi friends! I hope you all had a great holiday weekend. I got to spend mine with my extended family while Mom and Dad went to a conference. At Shih Tzu Uncle's house, I hung out a lot with my fur cousin Ginger. That is the two of us chillin' in the backyard above. Ginger is trying out one of my cute face techniques, "put your face on the ground and look up". She's doing a pretty good job, I told her that the more pitiful you look, the more attention you get!

Ginger and I weren't the only fuzzy faces in the house however. We also had the pleasure of hanging out with the fur posse of Coco, Bailey and Bentley:

Hey, where did Pink Bear come from?

It was a full house for sure! There was lots of running around, exchanging of pee mail and just general doggy antics. My youngest human cousin is a 6-year-old girl and she had tons of fun having so many puppies to play with at once!

That is the one downside to so many pups in one place though. I had to work extra hard to get all the attention. I made sure my face was the one closest to the human doing the petting and always made it a point to sit next to them on the couch right away. One time though, Bailey tried to move in on my territory. I held my ground, but ended up with a Westie bottom in my face.

Um, excuse me.

Overall, it was a very exciting weekend. Even so, I wouldn't want to live with that many friends on a constant basis. I'm not as young as I used to be (shh…don't tell Mom I admitted that!) and I can honestly say I was worn out at the end and happy to be going home when Mom and Dad picked me up.

Travel bed never felt so good!
