My buddy Mango, solidarity in slobbers Mango, presented me with this award on Tuesday.

Here's the text that goes with it:
This award is presented to those dog bloggers out there who know the meaning of GREATNESS. Their blogs are consistently interesting, funny, or informative. Their KINDNESS is extended to others without expectation of it’s return, and their FRIENDSHIP inspires others to do EXTRAORDINARY things. These are the blogs you can’t wait to read everyday. In short, they are AWE-INSPIRING, full of wonder, and simply PAWsome!Pass this award on to 4 others who you feel exemplify a “Paw”some Blog, and leave a note saying why you think they deserve the Pawsome Award!”

Thanks Mango! I think you're pawsome too! And Dexter, you're pretty pawsome in your own labradude way. So now I have to pass it on. OK. I think everyone deserves this award because you all put so much work into your blogs. Here's my random list, 4 of the blogs that Mom and I can never miss.

Ms. Lois Lane - Mom, Dad and I think she's beautiful and she has fun adventures. We really want to meet her.

The Poupounette (Tom, Tama-chan and Sei-chan) - One day we're all going to go and visit Tom and his kit-sisters, and #1 too. We really need to see his castle too. That looks like such a great place to run around.

The TN Bull Terrors aka Kids in Dog Suits - Darla Jean, Pappy, Feather Louise and LizzaBella are some of the most encouraging puppies we know. Thier Mom and Dad are pretty snazzy too.

Gio and Romeo at Life is better with Sheltie Hair - They have great adventures. I think my Mom should take an example from thier Mom and get me involved in all sorts of stuff. You know, like therapy dog work and rally-o.

Is that 4? Good. I think a bunch more dogs deserve this award so I'm going to pass it on some more. (Rules are made to be broken you know. Pei laughter)

Ruby and Penny, Maggie and Mitch, Gus and Waldo, River, Mona and her Mommy, Dozer and Star, Daisy - in all her pinkness, Eduardo, Tinkerbelle and her brothers, Vivi and her cats, Hamish and his sister, Lorenza, Madison, Charlie Daniels, Bogart and Oorvi. I know I missed some but Mom wants her computer back for some reason. Sheesh. Can't she use Dad's? Or the laptop even?

I'm going to leave with a great profile shot of me.

Sniff ya later!

Rainy Tuesday

It's raining today.

I'm going to stay here like this and help Mommy read a book or something, Dog knows she has enough to choose from. You're going to want to biggify this picture. It kind of rocks.

Thank you to all my friends for posting comments yesterday. I've decided to run a special on my Dad and his armour early next week. I have to come up with questions first. Maybe I can interview a few other people too, I can become Report Pei Bolo again! I wonder if Stephen Harper would want to be interviewed for my blog. I'll have to send him a request. (Oh, he's our Prime Minister. His wife is a cat person apparently - she fosters them for the Humane Society, so he might need some dog time.) Hmm, I'll have to think about this. Meh, it'll be something to think about today while Mom is reading I guess.

Stay dry everypuppy.

Sniff ya later.

I need Help and my Monday Morning Report

Welcome to Bolo's Monday Morning Report. First of all, I had a great weekend. I helped Daddy with his 14th Century Transitional Armour. See the vambraces (on his forearms)? I snoopervised him making that. He already had the elbow bits and the spaulders (shoulder), gorget (neck) and the helmet. But I'm a good snooperviser. He looks awesome doesn't he?, Wouldn't he look just totally awesome if he was standing anywhere else but in our front hall though? Mom said she's bringing her camera to his swordfighting class next week so she can get better pictures of him.

Here's where I need help. I had to say Good bye to my Uncle Brett. And I had just gotten him back too! Pei whimper. Aunt Angela (Uncle Brett's wife) works for the Canadian Governemnt and she goes off galavanting all over the place. Well she's taking my uncle to AUSTRALIA for a LONG TIME.
I look sad there don't I? I am sad. So I need help from my Australian friends. Would you guys be there for my Uncle Brett if he needs a dog moment? He's more of a cat person apparently but you couldn't prove that by me. I'd appreciate it if you could help my Uncle Brett and I out. Many thanks. Mom says they'll be living in Sydney. I'd go visit but Mom said something about a lot of time in Quarantine. I don't like that idea.

Ok, I think that's it. I chased a squirrel this morning so I'd better make sure he's not in my yard!

Bolo's Friday Adventures and Weather Report

First of all, it's beautiful outside today. Secondly, after all my patrolling do you see what's in the tree in my front yard? MY FRONT YARD!

The little MONSTER! I've barked, I've screamed, I think I'm going to try Mommy's bow and arrow next. HE'S IN MY YARD!That's it. You squirrels get THE LOOK.

Excuse me, I have to get back to guarding my front door.

Thinking Thursday

This is now my Thinking Pose It's also my Cuteness pose and a bunch of other poses, but I'm going to use it to symbolize my thinkingness today.

What am I thinking about you ask? Good question. It all started when my Number 1 Peigle Fan, Ms. Lois Lane herself, said she wanted to cuddle with me yesterday. Phew, good thing I can't blush, or I'd be red right there. I told Mom I'd really like to meet Ms. Lois Lane in person. There is a little problem of distance since I'm over here and she's over there.

So Mommy told me to get online today while she's at work and plan the route to go and visit Ms. Lois Lane in Indiana. Not this year Mom said because we're going to be busy this summer, but next year might work out. WAY COOL!

So if I'm planning a trip to see Ms. Lois Lane, who else can I visit on the way? Maybe Tom and Tama-Chan and Sei-Chan can work at moving France a little closer to North America so we can visit them without going through quarantine. I'll have to plan to visit Mango and Dexter in Master Chew Sits......and I think Maggie and Mitch are in that area......who else would want a Bolo visit? Let me know!

My newest award

So Moose handed me this award on Saturday. He said my blog was fabulous! Thanks Moose, yours is great too. If you haven't met Moose yet, you should go visit, he's a great guy and his Mom is really cool too.

I think all of you have fabulous blogs so everyone is invited to take this award home with them.

In other news, Mom came home from work sick yesterday. I had to take care of her. She's home sick again today. Looks like I've got my job cut out for me again. She's cough-cough-coughing and going HONK a lot. I don't speak HONK so I hope she hasn't lost her voice. It's a good thing I understand the universal signal of the Ear Scratch or I might miss out. Pei laughter. OK, I'd better make sure Mom get some food and water.

Sniff ya later.

Monday Morning Report

Welcome to my Monday Morning Report. Remember last year when I snoopervised the building of the shed? Read about that here. Well, dark and early on Saturday morning Daddy sent me outside to pee and I saw/heard/smelled something in my yard and I let them know they were in my yard and they went ZOOM behind the shed. So everytime I go out there, I check to make sure they're gone.

This is where they zoomed into.
Like, right here.
They might have gone into the neighbours yard from here.
Oh,, that's not them.
If only I could go in past my ears.......

Oh yeah, and before I forget, my buddy Hamish got a new sister! Welcome Yuna! Go say Hi, you'll notice something very interesting about her right off. Pei laughter. That's all I'm saying. Now excuse me, I have to go back to investigating the shed.

Sniff ya later!

Pei-Ess, Moose gave me an award, I'll take about that tomorrow!

Frootbat Friday and Other news

My good friends Tom and Tama-chan (and Sei-chan too, but I just met her) over at The Poupounette play Frootbat Friday almost every week and I've just been itching to join it. I don't have huge ears, but he's what I got:

What do you think?

And, most important of all for today:

Happy Birthday Daddy!

The Adventures never stop at my house apparently. Last night Daddy had to do some running around so Mom and I went with him! He enjoyed the company and I got to sniff and pee in new and interesting places! Not sure what Mom got out of it though.

And here's an Adventure Safety tip:

Shake em if you've got em!

Yesterday was fun. Mom was home with my all morning so we had to cuddle. Then she went off somewhere and I was able to catch up on my naps. When she came home she said Daddy was on his way home from work so I started going to the window to look for him. Mom said I was deflating (what I was actually doing was whining because I couldn't see him - apparently it sounds like I'm loosing air. Silly Mommy). So what does she do? Mommy whips out my leash and we go searching for Daddy!

We found him up the path and he was so happy to see us! I was so happy to see him I had to give him an I missed you kiss.

Kind of like this one, only I'm much bigger now and Daddy's hair is much longer.
I stayed glued to Daddy's leg all night while he slept, just so he knows How much I love him. It's a tough job but somepuppy has to do it.

Award recognition

As I mentioned yesterday, Hamish sent me this award. I've done this before, but every now and then you should re-evaluate yourself to make sure you're still being honest, you know what I mean?

So, here we go:
  1. I am still a cuddle pig.
  2. Mom and Dad take all the pillows out of my room and hide them before they leave for work because I destroyed a few of them when I was itty bitty. (Mom: 2 sets of pillow, 3 sets of sheets) Ahem, you didn't need to say that Mom.
  3. I really enjoy being outside, except when it's WAY TOO cold. I wish Mommy would let me stay in the backyard all day.
  4. I have a water dish in the bedroom and when it's empty I sometimes nose it over to the bathroom so Mom and Dad know to refill it. Only sometimes. Usually I leave it in the doorway so they can see it's empty.
  5. Much as I enjoy adventures, my real hobby is napping.
  6. Mom normally wakes me up with kisses and cuddles and hip rubs while saying "Time to go Downstairs, Outside, Go pee." There really are a lot worse ways to wake up.
  7. I understand more English words then I let on.
  8. I'm sometimes so excited to go to Day Care that I forget to kiss Mommy good bye.
  9. Mom says I'm Daddy's Dog, but I really do Love my Mom too.
  10. I really wish I could kiss Grandma, Grandad and Uncle Marty's noses. I think they all need nose kisses.
I think everyone I know has done this, but consider yourself tagged if you want to play!

I'd better leave you with a picture. That's me last year on an Adventure!

Monday Morning Report

I had a VERY busy weekend. Friday I had to nap with Mom and Dad. Saturday, I had to nap with Mom and Dad. And SUNDAY....well, Sunday I had to nap with Mom and Dad, and do this:
fall asleep on Dad's foot under his computer desk. It was tragic! TRAGIC!

Then on Sunday night, Dad packed my kennel and I up and we ended up at Great-Gran's place! WOHOO! Party time!

Mom and Dad bring the kennel for me because there are little children around and Great-Gran's house isn't that big. But they also brought me a squirrel so it's not like I was BORED in my kennel, no no. And Mom or Dad were always within sight and the roof was left open so I could take a look around at everyone and I wasn't excluded from anything.

Even a visit from the Easter Bunny.Uhm.... how did she get in here?

Sniff ya later!

Pei-Ess, my new buddy Hammish sent me an award! Thanks Hamish, I'll take a look at that later this week. Nice meeting you!

On the lookout

This picture if from a few years ago, but I'm using it to illustrate that I'm on the lookout for Spring.

Mom says it's on it's way because there are green things in the front garden and it's not the frogs.

Sorry about not writing yesterday, Mom's monitor died. When she and Daddy went out to get a new one, -I- went with them. They can't make a big purchase like that without me you know. And it was a big purchase. Mom says her new monitor is 22 inches. That's like the size of a pug. I'll have to get her to take a picture. Of the monitor, we don't have a pug.

That will probably be tomorrow. Mom said she and Dad have the next three days off and there will be a lot of Bolo Cuddling going on. (Bolo sandwich this morning btw pei laughter) Can't say as I object to Bolo Cuddling.

I'd better get back to my lookout!

Sniff ya later!

Tuesday, April 7, 2009


I really should come up with more interesting titles but honestly, today is not the day. I'm going to spend today like this, hopefully with Mommy nearby:

Why do you ask? Because of this:

That white stuff there? Two days in a row now we've had that. I thought it was supposed to be spring. Blech.

Mom says Dad is going to come home at lunch and I get to drive him back to work. So I'm going to rest up for that. Maybe I can convince Mom that she needs to nap with me. Morning naps with Mom are fun.

Still hoping spring shows up soon.

Monday Morning Report

Welcome to my Monday Morning Report.

I had a very busy weekend. On Saturday I had to snoopervise Dad and his cleaning, oh, and his nap. On Sunday I made Miss Jenn very happy. She came over to watch Iron Man with Mom. Mom told me Miss Jenn was here and I ran downstairs up to Miss Jenn, tried to climb her and gave her nose kisses! She was so happy! I think she was Bolo deprived. I made sure to sit next to her throughout most of the movie, just so she could get her ear scratch quota in.

In other news, it's still pretty grey around here. I've been poking my nose out the door, kind of like this:

That's actually me looking INTO the house, but you get the general idea right?

I'm going to think sunny thoughts again today. I think that's a great plan!

Bolo's Friday Adventures and Weather Report

It's raining out. Oops, I forgot my fanfare.

Dun duh duh da! Welcome to Bolo's Friday Weather Report. It's raining out. Mom thinks it's funny that's it's raining hard here, not very hard at the coffee place we stopped so Dad could pick up breakfast, and not raining at all at Daddy's office. A total difference of 5 km. She's wierd.

I had ooddles of Adventures yesterday. Not just to Day Care. My Pawgress report was nice though, the ladies said I was full of beans and ran around and had fun. And someone else said that she had never noticed how nice my eyes are. She said they are very human looking. Mom likes my eyes too. Mostly that she can see them and I don't have to have them tacked so she can see them ALL THE TIME. Unless I'm sleeping.

Then Daddy came to get me! I love it when Daddy comes to get me. We walked home and I had some water. Being at Day Care is thirsty work you know. Mom came home and I had to give her nose kisses and tell her I missed her and then we went on another Adventure! We went to the V-E-T! It's ok, all I had to do was walk in and say hello to everyone. Mom wanted to pick up my Heartworm and Flea and Tick thing. It was nice to go in and say Hi though.

This morning I've already had Super Mondo Bolo Morning Cuddles and I helped take Daddy to work. I'll have to get Mom out the doo rso she can get to work and then I can have a nap and dream of sun.

Sniff ya later!

Thursday, April 2, 2009


There was another phone call last night with my name in it! Yup, to the Day Care with me!

Mom said when she asked if I could come play the lady who answered the phone went YAY! It's really tough to have a fan club you know. Pei laughter.

Nothing else is new here, sorry guys, it's just not that interesting. Oh! Wait! My Uncle Ryan showed up yesterday! I haven't seen him in a long time, I made sure he knew that this was my house but I was happy to see him. Sorry no pictures, Mom wasn't with it yesterday. Too tired she says. She should have had a nap with me I tell ya.

Oh, I made sure to give Mom extra cuddles this morning, just to help her through the day. Again, no pictures, probably because she had her arms around me and Dad doesn't use he camera. Pei laughter.

Sniff ya later!

Mom is feeling better. She went to her V-E-T and they said she was ok. I think it was all our hard work and happy thoughts that got Mom through it. I know I super-cuddled her yesterday. She says thank you for all the lovely thoughts.

Not much going on today, this is an older picture but Mom was in no mood for a photo shoot yesterday. It's ok Mom, we understand. I think maybe I'll re-energize while Mom and Dad are at work today. That way I'm raring to go when they get back home.
