Testing, testing, testing...!

Ya know, everybody always teases mom that I am half papillon because I have wispies and am fine-boned and hold my beautifully plumed tail curled up high over my back. So a few weeks ago, she stole some blood from me and Samwise and sent it away to be tested. Well, the results finally came back, and guess what?!

THEY WERE RIGHT (sort of)!!!! I am only HALF a border collie!! Here are my results:

ACD??? Like, ferREALZ??!! I am pretty sure these do not look ANYTHING alike:

Whatevs. Anyway, Sammy's was much less interesting, but here it is:

Haha - he is so mixed up, they don't know WHAT he is!! Purebred beagle on one side, but the only thing they're sure of on the other is Lab...maybe some greyhound and maybe some collie, and a little pinch of "No Clue". So I guess that "Samwise-beagledog" really is the perfect name!

And Moss had a pretty big week, too. He got noodled and got to wear the biggest party hat EVER! Mom wouldn't let him play with me for a few days, and kept him in jail:

When Moss was getting noodled, the vet suggested running a biopsy on the bald patch he's kind of always had on his leg. Well, when the results came back, it said he had some sort of "endocrine dermatitis" which was typical of hypothyroidism, so he has to go back and get more blood stoled. Hope they figure it out quickly cuz he looks funny with that bald patch on his leg!

Hi, remember me?? Mom has no excuse for not letting me post for so long, so Auntie Amy finally had to threaten her! Anyway, we have had a bunch of snow lately, and mom stole her dad's camera to show everybody these:

I don't know why mom took so many of Moss. Maybe because I spent most of my time doing this:

And Meara spent ALL of her time doing this:

And Sammy only went this far:

Hi! It's me, Moss! Mom says I have to tell you that I'm a whole 5 and a half months old now, and weigh 30.5lbs.

And Speck[lehead] is mad at me because mom said *I* could post today! haha!

I've had a couple of Big Adventures over the past few weeks, but the funnest one is about WATER.


See, here is my wee puppy self in the Puppy Pool:

And then when I was bigger, I got to play in the Big Dog Pool!

This is me swimming "for real" for the first time!

And this is me trying to herd Speckles and swim at the same time. It didn't work very well.

But then I discovered the MOST FUN THING in the WHOLE WORLD:

(and having a float coat (thanks auntie caitlin!) so i can swimz forever and not get drownded like i almost did where auntie nicole went in the water with all her clothes on so she could save me)

I got to chase the Sparkle-Splashes forever!

And then Auntie Nicole showed me how to make the Biggest Splashes EVER! Here I am diving for the first time (I don't know why mom keeps saying "falling"):

but I learned that if I *jumped*, I could make bigger splashes!

But then Auntie Nicole said it was time for me to get out of the water! I told her I didn't wanna!!!

And then I tried my hardest to swimz away but I couldn't!!!

So she said Fiiinnnee, I could have ONE more jump!


I also got to see all my friends and meet tons of new people! (hi auntie mickey, thanks again for playing Splashies with me in the Little Pool!!)
