I'm back!!!

It's been over a month since my last post and as you can see, I am busy helping papa type as usual. Papa was away on business in Rome a few weeks ago and has been a little busy lately so he hasn't had time to help me with my blog...but I think that's just an excuse for him being lazy. I try to type by myself sometimes but when I use my nose to hit the keys, papa gets upset because of my snot on his keyboard. I always lick it off afterwards so what's the problem???

Papa really enjoyed Rome. It was his first time to Europe and so Rome was a good place to start. He saw all the sites and was parti
cularly taken with the food. Papa has always loved Italian food and eating in Rome was everything he thought it would be and more.

They closed down my favorite indoor dog run a few weeks ago. One of the last days we went, the place was full of Chihuahuas. As you know, I am not a Chihuahua fan because I am afraid of them and they yap at me all of the time. How many Chihuahuas were there you ask? Count for yourself...and this was only half of there a Chihuahua boom that I haven't heard about?

My last agility class was today. It was fun class for the last 6 weeks. I am getting better at jumps and running through the tunnel. I am also pretty good at the see-saw, and recently I have been improving at the slalom. Papa thinks my improvement is because I have a great handler (him) but I think we all know it's because of my incredible intelligence and agility!

I have a new hiding you can't find me!!!

Papa is making stew for dinner tonight (but not for me...I get the usual...). When mama and papa went shopping today for groceries, they found some really great deals on fruits. Check out these cherries. At 1,580 yen per cup, it works out to over US$1 per cherry...
And these strawberries are a bargain at 1,980 yen per pack. That's about US$3 per strawberry...they must be famous strawberries...with gold in the centre...and super magical healing powers...and blessed by the pope himself...
Papa says that pound for pound, they are more valuable than me...whatever the heck that means. I think pound for pound, papa's head is full of strawberries...
