want to go for a ride?

we went for a little drive this weekend. it started out with Husbuddy asking if I wanted to go for a ride to go exploring since it was so sunny.

the problem was that when you say, “want to go for a ride?” puppycakes gets a little excited.

I wish I had the forethought to think of capturing his dancing excitement on camera. it’d be impossible to catch to though. it’s just something you’re going to have to come visit us to see in person.

it’s hysterical.

then puppycakes spends most of the drive either: a. pawing at the window button to get it to open(because, yes, he has figured that out) or b. with his nose out the window in typical dog fashion:

and in case you can’t tell what’s going on from the above picture:

haha. I know. we all have dogs who do this and we all think it’s the cutest thing and I just shared one of the most ordinary things about having a dog.

but I’m still thankful for that little guy and his cute little excitement about going for a ride.

part of what “going for a ride” means for me is to find new streets and get lost in new parts of Princeton that we haven’t seen before. it’s so fun to see where you end up! and I just LOVE sitting in the passenger seat while Husbuddy drives and we talk or sing along to the radio. it feels like we’re dating again when we used to drive from Spokane to Moscow together. it’s just one of our favorite things. 🙂

so on this little adventure we found some pretty amazing houses. the only one that I “HAD” to take a picture of is this one:

I know, it’s impossible to see past that huge gate, but basically, it’s a really interesting house that has taken an old stone barn and connected it to a modern farmhouse with a really contemporary-glass entry. le sigh. I wish I had the guts to knockon the door (or gate) and ask for a tour. it would be fascinating!

and then of course, we had to find a park for the puppycakes to run around in because he was just too excited to pee before we got in the car…

hee hee. he’s so funny looking.

reflection

reflection

i love watching my puppy look out the window. he gets so excited to get a chance to look and he loves just watching the world. since our windows on this side of our apartment are high he has to get up on a chair to look out. it really kills him when he sees one of his little puppy buddies, either Muffy, Charlie, Henry or Patience. He goes a little crazy and thinks they’re coming to see him! Other times he sees his “enemies” and thinks he need to bark them away. But he wasn’t quite sure what to think when he saw his reflection this morning. i’m not even sure he saw it, actually, he probably didn’t, but i pretended that he did… 🙂
if he didn’t see it, was he just too focused on the world out there and all the things he wanted to do? that tree that needed to be marked or that corner where he last saw one of his buddies? or did he see his reflection and get focused on his own image and how sad he was that he wasn’t out there?

it makes me think about how we look out the window. do we get excited when we see the world outside, waiting for us? do look out and see opportunity to live and love? or do we look at the window, catch our own lonely reflection and get caught up in self absorption? are we inward, self focused or are we outward focused on others?
just some random reflections for your Saturday.
🙂 hee hee. pun intended.

besides sitting around,  sammie made lots of friends.

he did all this while we did a lot of sitting on the bench in the sunshine.

the Puppy wants to wish you a Merry Christmas.

***fair warning: the dog is  A sap. don’t say i didn’t warn you! xoxo-kimberly renee.***

hi! my name is Samwise.  I’m here in my Christmas sweater, taking over the blog for once, to share a little bit of my life with you.

First off… i should show you my favorite place to hang and from here i over see the neighborhood. i’m a guard dog in this part of the CRW’s where i live with the people who feed me and pick up my … well you know.

I’m tough looking and scare away all of the squirrels. believe you, me.

and this is one of my new favorite toys 🙂

this is me begging my human to play with me.

he’s a little preoccupied. he isn’t getting the brain waves i’m transmitting:

“play with me. play with me.”

i don’t get it. sometimes this guy is just way too good at ignoring me.

and i ask you,

who could ignore this sweet little face?

sometimes things just don’t go my way.

there’s just one problem. just one little fact of life that i’m reminded of daily…

life’s hard. that’s just a fact.  sometimes my peeps won’t play with me. sometimes i get into trouble when i get into something that i’m not suppossed to. sometimes i just bark too much.

sometimes i’m just sad.

is it too much to ask? to just play with me? to pay attention to me for goodness sake? it’s my life’s existence you’re talking about here!

apparently it is too much to ask.

but then, sometimes i’m reminded of something more important then playing. see this lap? it’s my favorite lap in the whole world. i can fit my whole body on it! it’s so cozy and she strokes me so nice…and that reminds me…

love is the most important thing in the world.

love is what this season is about. true love of a Father is the only explaination for him sending his beloved Son into a place that was scary, where people didn’t play nice, and who didn’t love Him back…

 to die for us.

 

And that, my friends, is what makes Christmas merry. True love.

Merry Christmas!

if i was there, i’d cover you with long, wet, kisses.  -Samwise.

no joke.

The Puppycakes is hilarious.

Since we don’t have kids, we laugh at our pup. Lil’ Samwise. is. so. silly.

Reason Sammie is silly #1: He insists on sitting with you on the comfy chair. He scootches his little butt in between your legs to give himself room.  

Now. Notice his little sweater.

I’d like to inform you that we found it in the dollar section at Target. I’m NOT one of those people who spends hundreds on pet clothes.  But a dollar section sweater? I couldn’t pass it up.

Reason Sammie is silly #2: He actually asks to wear his sweater!

No. Joke!

We keep it with the mittens and hats in a basket by the front door.

 In the past two weeks he has, on multiple occasions, actually dug out his sweater and brought it to husbuddy with puppy dog eyes.  Then. He extends his little head out to get it put on him.

oh my goodness. way too cute. way too hilarious.

Reason he’s silly #3: he sits on pillows whenever he can poof one up enough.

ha.
