This summer has been busy with my parents preparing for the arrival of this "baby." I don't know who or what this person is, but she is sure taking up a lot of my parents' time! My mom and dad keep telling me that my sister is coming and I better behave myself and be nice to her. I will try, but I can't guarantee anything! I haven't been helping out with the baby stuff too much, but I do like to go in her room, sniff everything, roll around on the carpet, and leave some good fur balls behind. That way this baby knows that I was here FIRST!
This weekend I had a new friend come over to play - Chase the Yellow Lab. He was fun and I'm pretty sure he's my boyfriend now. We played for about 4 hours straight, and then we sat nose-to-nose with our paws on top of each other's. If that doesn't say true love, I don't know what does. The only bad part is that Chase is quite the drooler, so he soaked up my entire neck and head with his slobber and I had to get a bath the next day. But that's ok, because you have to make sacrifices for the one you love, right?
Lately I've been a little mopey because I've hardly been getting any walks and I'm not sure about this baby business. However, my mom says she's proud of me because I've been protective of my house and woofing at whoever rings the doorbell! So what if I also woof when there's a doorbell ringing on tv...I mean who can tell the difference?
Here's a picture of me and a book about a dog that looks like me - it's for my baby sister. I hope she likes it because I want her to learn about "my people" (golden retrievers!) I am going to be the lone golden representative in a house full of humans, so I have to represent! WOOF!
