Taking Over

My bed. My lounge chair. My couches. Mine, mine, mine. I let the humans share though, only 'cuz I like a good cuddle.

No fair

Last weekend was our anniversary, and my husband is on a mission to go to as many of the National Parks as possible. Only one problem: the National Parks aren't dog-friendly (there are some caveats to that, but in general, it's no hiking with the pup in the parks. National Forests, however, are another story. See my posts on our Yosemite trip for more info.) Since we really wanted to get to hike, Captain unfortunately didn't get to enjoy all this:

We went to Lassen National Park, and took in some incredible views, geologic wonders, and of course hiking! Since Lassen is filled with boiling hot springs, I can see why dogs shouldn't be there!  And don't feel too bad for Captain- he did spend the weekend with his favorite dog-sitter. Plus, we decided we need to do more East-Bay hiking while the weather's just right, so more adventures for Captain to come!

Since moving, we've been filling up the new place with a few new rugs. I was taking some pictures of the new pad to show my mom, and in every one, Captain managed to place himself front and center. I've created a total ham. Sigh ;-)

Tater Gator

Meet Captain's new favorite toy. He's Tater Gator, and he squeaks. My 4 year old niece picked him out.

Captain knows him by name. We say, "Where's Tater Gator? Go get Tater!" and he'll run to his toy basket, and proudly prance back, alligator hanging from his mouth.

It was love at first squeak.
Ready to pounce
In other news, Captain has quite taken to spending the day napping in his sunny backyard, and chasing squirrels whenever he can. We're all settled in now and it feels like home! He had fun playing in his backyard this weekend, with a doggie friend who came over for our housewarming party. More fun to come!

Coo coo for squirrels

Just a regular walk around the neighborhood...
