I was able to do some running today on the beach!!!  I didn't even mind that I had to wear a collar and my sweater cause I still had a lot of fun.

Life is still filled with a lot of joy and I have several doggie friends here where we live. Some of us even get to go on walks together!

But I am looking forward to Spring coming our way. We live where it rains a lot so I want a warm Spring to arrive real soon.

We have a new friend!

This is our new friend Rosie and her Guide Dog Russell. Rosie and Mom have become good friends so I get to visit Russell often too.

Russell is just 2 years old and already a very smart, wise Guide Dog.  But when Rosie takes off Russell's harness he is an AWESOME playmate!!

Rosie and Russell join Mom for WII bowling (on the TV screen) and also for Bingo in the community center.  Russell works his way under Rosies chair and takes a great nap while the humans play their games.  Of course I am not a real Service Dog so I have to stay home and cuddle with Dad instead!

It is good to be back to Dog Blog Land so I will keep pestering Mom to get more posts on my blog so I can also see what all of you have been up to.  See you soon!!
Hugs and wags, Willow

BRRRR, it is getting colder here!

Yes, Little Willow says she doesn't like this cold weather we are having now that it is November. She loves to sleep on top anything available!!

In 6 days Willow will already be 2 and 1/2 years old. The days are passing so quickly now that we all seem to be so happy.  It is strange how that happens. Willow is such a wonderful apartment pup and a joy to all the 150 residents living in this building with us.  She is such a sweet dog!

I have to be honest here....I had to get a new bed because I had beat up my other bed.  But it sure was a lot of fun throwing it around a lot and chewing like I was trying to kill it too!  Oh I had so much fun!
But Mom said she was tired of cleaning up all the crazy stuffing that kept appearing all over her pretty rug.
So here is mom's proof that I did try to eat my bed!
And the stuffing did end up on Mom's rug!
Sorry mom.
And thanks for the wonderful new bed!!

Mom and Dad have both been very sick with colds so things have been very quiet around here. But I have been sooo busy trying to take care of both of them!!  Boy, that's a lot of work for a little pup like me but I can tell you I am doing a real good job!!!

But I will be so happy when they are both feeling better so we can play a lot again. But I have noticed that when I snuggle up against Mom that I hear a sweet sigh escape from her lips.  Then I know I am needed and I am doing a good job.

We will be back...they are slowly getting out of bed for longer periods of time so there is an end in sight!!

Hugs and wags, Willow

I have not been feeling well for the last 2 days so I am spending my nights on the air bed. And in this photo is the Princess and the Pea theme.  As soon as I stacked the pillows and blankets so hub could help me put everything away Willow decided that it was a perfect spot for her to spend the day.

You can imagine the terrible look I got as I took down her tower. But she still sleeps real close to me since I have acquired this terrible cold.  It is wonderful to have such a loving and caring little dog in our lives.

We love you to the Moon and beyond Little Princess Willow!

Do you see that little face staring out the window/door?? 
Yes, that is little Willow wishing she could join me out in the Courtyard. She will join us but just not yet.

She likes to keep track of all the residence that walk by her door now. It can keep her very busy on sunny days. This is a photo I took the day we started moving into our new home and as you can see the area needs so cleaning up. I will repost this site after we have cleaned it up and have some plants growing around our area.

Today mom approached me with her camera in her hand.  She said very nicely to me....Willow, will you stand real still while I take your picture? I will make sure that flashy thing won't get in your  beautiful eyes.

So I stood real still...just like this..while she took several pictures of me.  And that flash of bright light never did come out of her camera.

Of course Mom was very happy and told Dad how proud she was of me!! 

 Don't tell Mom, but it was fun to just stand real still for a minute!!

Waiting for the elevator so we can go outside.

 Now we are waiting in the elevator so we can get outside. 
I live with mom and dad up on the 4th floor of our apartment building.  So we have to ride the elevator down or we often take the 4 flight of stairs.  Mom  and I the chance to race down the stairs together. 

And I hear reports that soon there will be No more waiting for the elevator so we can get outside in a hurry to do my 'duty'.  And soon there will be no reason to wait for the elevator so we can get back up to our warm apartment.

Mom and Dad have applied for an apartment on the ground floor in the beautiful Courtyard.  And we move in the first of March!  Mom will get to grow her beautiful Hosta plants on and near our own patio. And Mom and Dad will be able to sit out in the sun...or shade and read or eat a meal anytime they want!!!!

But I will not be allowed out in the courtyard.  But lucky for me there is a large sliding glass door with a sliding screen that exits out onto the patio and I will most likely spend most of my time there keeping a careful eye on Mom and Dad.

We are all excited about this move. We have waited for this apartment for almost 18 months.  So Mom is busy packing up the craftroom and making sure everything is organized and ready to be loaded on the moving carts to roll them to our new home.

And it makes it even more fun for us as everyone here is so happy for us and ready to come and visit us on the courtyard.

We are ready!!

This is what happens when humans do not pay attention to a demanding little pup like me.  I will start stacking all my toys on their feet until they notice what I have done. Then I usually get just what I want...for them to start throwing my toys so I can chase them into the kitchen where I  run real fast and slide on the smooth floor all the way to my toy. Then I race back to them so they can throw a toy again.
Yes, this can go on all day!!!

We had a lot of beautiful sunshine today so I spent most of my time following the sun puddles around the livingroom.

We have had a lot of heavy rain this month so I am taking advantage of every sunny moment that comes thru our front window.

And I think it is just about time mom and I took a nice long walk down to the water so I can chase sticks and little stones out into the water. But mom is trying to tell me that it is to cold to play in the ocean water and that I must wait till the air is much warmer.  But mom...the sun is shinning!!!
