Toilet Paper

Even though Sailor just turned 15 months (on Christmas Eve) he still can't resist tugging at a roll of toilet paper that was just put on the roller.  I thought he was past it, but uh, Not!

Christmas in Excelsior

Our friend Heather (Banbury) Sykora was in town from Denver where she lives now.  We decided to take Sailor to Excelsior and walk around for some Christmas cheer.  Sailor got just as much attention as the reindeer and giant nutcracker!

Reindeer Dog

We are going to try and teach Sailor to fly :).  We got this funny reindeer costume for him and he tolerated it well, even when we took him in and out of the car with it on.  Too cute! See why we love him!

Sailor is still getting used to being on the boat.  Although we put the boat away a few weeks ago, we took one last ride for the summer.  he always has to crown Osa out of the way and be at the very front.  He is so big, he makes the boat look very small.

Sailor gets so excited to be in a pet store and then wears himself out. Shoppers can't believe that he's a puppy as he is so mellow. He just had a bath too so he has a cute green bandana on.

When we go for walks, Sailor and Osa like to say hello to the collies, Lance and BiBi who live around the corner.  They are very sweet.  One is 4 and the other 11 (can't remember which is which) but both look young.  Kisses and nuzzles!

A week ago Tuesday, we were awakened by fire engines and police cars.  One of our neighbor's houses was burning due to a fire pit that wasn't quite out and started a  fire in their garage. They lost most of their home (abuot 75%) due to water and smoke damage.  Sailor and I took a walk by it and you could still smell the smoke in the air.  They had the really damaged part covered with a tarp and although a Lot of it looks okay from the outside, it is supposedly pretty FUBAR on the inside.   They are a nice family and they are all okay!

Sailor and Duke love to play down by the lake.  We had some great weather over the weekend, so they had a good time.   Osa just kind of stands there but she doesn't really play much.  Nice looks cute in the midst of the dogs.

Linc the Doberman

Poor Linc!  He hurt his leg, and it's not healing correctly, therefore the cone. 
His "mom" is our dog trainer, Libby.  She usually brings Linc to class.  He looked so sad and forlorn!

Sailor loves to chase the water that comes out of the hose. He also bites at it like it's a live animal. It's pretty funny to watch and makes us laugh.

Sailor loves his day care and no wonder! When I take him, he practically runs to the door! They snapped some pics of him running around and swimming with his buds. At least one of us is living the good life!

Finally, a toy that's big enough for him. He carries it around to all his "beds" around the house. This is the toy he got for his birthday. He chews on it a little, but it is pretty durable compared to some of the other ones he plays with and breaks right away.

We tried a new dog park on Sunday - Staring Lake Park in Eden Prairie. It was pretty big and we weren't sure if he was going to totally run off and then we'd have trouble finding him (even though it was fenced off). He found a few new fur friends and had a good time. He took off once, but we found him easily. People jsut love him - he always gets attention!

Sailor loves to watch the birds (and of course chase them if he can). Today he decided he was just going to sit under the bird feeders and water and have the birds just come to him!

Chewing on the Piggy

Sailor likes his squeaky piggy. He just kind of gums it with his teeth and doesn't really chew it up. He likes to jump on the bed with all his toys. Sometimes when I go in the bedroom there's like 5 toys laying there. He has 2 "toy boxes" around the house and knows where they are. He goes and gets his treats and toys and leaves them around the house like a kid. I'm always picking up after him.

It's my bed no matter where you put it

I was cleaning out the back of Todd's car and put Sailor's "Car bed" on the ground. He immediately an over and laid down on it like he was claiming it. He cold have laid down anywhere else on the grass, but he plopped down right on this. It was super cute.

Renaissance "Sauncer" Faire

We took Sailor to the Renaissance Faire - which is one of the largest in the country. We went with our friends Jen and Scott from Mankato and Lisa, who was in town visiting from Florida. We could hardly walk 5 steps before someone wanted to see and pet Sailor. He was such as magnet for people. It was funny to see the juxtaposition of modern clothes and the "Sauncers" dressed up like this pic with Todd in his t and shorts and "Gweneviere" and Merlin.

Also, your feet get so dirty. I thought this picture was so funny with Sailor's paws in the middle of it. Anyway, he had a good time getting attention, but it was a lot of work for us. We had fun though!
