The Story: Mommy Daddy and Sissy went down to the River Walk, wow this place was so nice there were soo many people there and everyone loved my new sweater! I saw my first boats there, I didn't like how load they were so I barked at them and these birds kept making me mad so I would run to get them but mommy said to be nice!

The Story: Oh-boy-oh-boy-oh-boy! My first day outside in my very own backyard park!! Arf! Arf!! I am so excited . . . but it sure is a BIG place!! Yip! Yip!! But, not to fear, for I am Whisper, the Great!!! Mommy says I can do anything I set my mind to, 'cause I am special. There sure is lots and lots of grassy stuff here! I've never seen so much before!! But, it's okay. Mommy's here with me, behind that camera thingy . . . she has such a sweet voice and she tells me it's okay . . . she says I am home now . . . and this is MY yard park and I can go exploring when I am good and ready! Look out world . . . here I come!!!!!!
The Story: On this bright day in April I encountered something strange. My day began just like normal. I woke up and went downstairs to say good morning to my mom. After I said hello is had to go outside. So I went out the door and down the deck stairs and onto the tall grass. As I walked around I saw something scary. I walked over to check it out and at first I thought it was a big, hallow, and colorful worm. I looked through the worm like thingy and there was my mommy looking at me from the other end. I said to myself "It ate my mom and I have to save her", so I went running through that scary thing and got to my mom. She was happy that I came to her but she was not in danger, I know this because she gave me a treat when I came through. Although the thing was scary it was a lot of fun running through. It turned out not to be a scary hallow worm thing. It was a big tunnel which was a lot of fun to run through.
The Story: Hurry up mommy the world awaits, its my first time outside and I want to explore. I see some funny thingies hoping in the trees, and there are green sticks coming out of the ground with purple and pink things on the top, I can smell them from here and I want to check them out, and pluck one for you because you are the best thing that ever happened to me.
The Story: The vastness, the beauty, the fury, where the heavens and the earth meet.....who could ask for such serenity and marvel! And I know that I am just passing through here, but for now I will leave my footprints so others will know I that was here and there's nothing to fear..........
The Story: This is my first spring, Iíve been waiting so long for it to arrive. Finally warm enough for the beach, I like the feel of sand under my paws & the smell of the salty ocean. Iím not built for swimming, we frenchies sink like stones but while the other pups are paddling through the still chilly water, I hold court on the dock with my share of blue crabs. So although Iím a land-locked puppy, today Ė standing bold over this crab leg, I feel like KING of the CRUSTACEANS!
