Thanksgiving weekend it snowed at Lake Arrowhead! Asta and I went romping and stomping with our dog neighbors Nicki,Wendi & Dori. It was super fun and I really like those party girls.

Here I am with my foster dad, Gary, and Asta and Gail .

After a nice walk in the mountain air I love to come back to the house and lay on the deck and sunbathe. I can lay here and watch the world go by and just relax. Ahhhhhhhhhhh.

What fun to be at Lake Arrowhead for Halloween.

We had some short people wearing all kinds of costumes, perhaps children, come by and knock on our door asking for treats! Gosh, it was so surprising I had to bark! Foster mom had a tray full of candy and yummy goodies for the visitors. I did not see any of the kind of treats they give to me and Asta and Gail on that tray. Very odd.

My foster dad took this picture of me, on the deck one evening at sunset. I liked the decorations he and I put up. I help him with everything he does. I really like him a lot.

Playtime with Puppies

I have been meeting many new friends since I have been living in Coronado.

Two very special visitors have been Elaina and Joclyn. They are young puppies who have tons of energy and seem to really enjoy me a lot. I have been a perfect hostess. I am polite at all times, even when they get a bit overbearing. My foster mom says she is proud of me for being such a good girl with these playful pups, and she knows I will be a very good mommy when my puppies arrive.

My New Pack

Weekends at Lake Arrowhead have been great fun! Swimming, running, playing, watching squirrels, eating sticks and acorns, taking long walks and nice naps with the family. Here I am with my squirrel toy.

During the week I stay in Coronado where I have a nice yard to romp and stomp in with my toys and doggie friends. This is my new pack! Wowie, what a fun group they are. Clockwise from lower left is Gail, Asta, Navarro, Me, & Kerry, who is my breed and my very favorite! Gail and Asta are my primary pack members. We hang out and play all the time. Navarro, wearing the blue gentle leader, is a CCI pup that my foster mom and her sister are raising. Navarro is visiting while aunt Chris and uncle Roger are on vacation. He is loads of fun because he is only 14 months old. Kerry lives with my foster sister, Meghan, up north. She is visiting while Meghan is on vacation. Kerry is 11 but she acts like a playful puppy and we are a lot alike.

Breeder? I am a GDA breeder? Oh, I am having too much fun to go into heat right now.

Velvet Meets Her New Foster Family

Today I went for a ride in the GDA van with Meri. We stopped at a fun place called Tom's Farms. It was hot there, so we took a little walk in the shade of some pretty trees. A woman came up to us to say hello. She knew our names, and was petting me and hugging me! I did my best wiggle and happy dance. Meri gave her my leash and we walked over to her car and there I met a couple of nice dogs named Asta and Kerry. I gladly jumped in with them and before I knew it we were on the road, heading up into the mountains! My first weekend at Lake Arrowhead with my new foster family!

I had a ball playing with my new dog friends and I LOVED all the swimming!
