Mommy and Daddy got Preston a new gadget called Gazillion Fetch a Bubble Machine. It comes with a bottle of CHICKEN-SCENTED bubble solution!

See the Fetch-a-Bubble in action. Mommy doesn’t want the house to smell like chicken so Preston has to take it outside.

It does produce GAZILLION bubbles!

Dun, dun, dun-dun, dun-dun, dun-dun….

Circle Around

There is no free treat! To get the freshly baked chicken treats, Preston has to circle around Mommy or Daddy as told.


Preston is very photogenic and he sure knows how to pose for a camera!

Dinner time!

Preston used to gobble down every meal like it was an Olympic’s race. Mommy has learned a simple trick to slow him down a little. Mommy places stuffed marrow bones (known to Preston as “donut bone”) in his bowl so he has to eat his food around them. This works very well. Preston now brings his donut bones to the kitchen when Mommy is getting his dinner ready. To make sure no meat juice is left behind, Preston even spends some time chewing the bone (and cleaning his teeth) at the end of each meal.

Time to go trick-or-treating! But Preston had to first decide if he wanted to be an alligator…. (Good guess, Maggie!)

or just be his true self…

Mommy and daddy took Preston trick r treating at Stanford Shopping Center and had tons of fun.

The inspiration of Preston’s costume came from this cool Croc-Eat-Dog costume. It was a promotion for the Zoo Neunkirchen in Germany.

Pumpkin Carving

Preston was exhausted after two-hours of running and wrestling in the dog park on Saturday. He spent Sunday recuperating at home while Mommy and Daddy were carving pumpkins.

Fetching toys by names is not new to Preston. He now has 31 toys and remembers all of their names. To get everyone in the Halloween spirit, Preston does this one a little differently…

Mission Peak

Preston got up early today and headed east to Fremont. With plenty of water and snacks packed, he was determined to conquer Mission Peak.

All ready to go! 8:30am at trail head.

“Hurry up, Mommy!”

Preston made it to the summit!! Elevation 2517 feet! It was so windy up there. Preston had a hard time keeping his eyes open (or even keeping his feet on the ground!) No time for sight-seeing, Preston had to start heading down before being blown away.

The 4-hour hike was made easier by the wonderful Grip Trek Boots.

Help Please!

Each day after Preston finishes his dinner, he brings his “stuff-a-ball”to Mommy to fill it up with yummy treats. The ball keeps him busy so that he won’t bother Mommy and Daddy at their dinner table. Occasionally, Mommy makes it a little more challenging to get the treats out of the ball by stuffing it with some chewy food (crunchy treats are the easiest!). At times like that, Preston needs help…

Pumpkin Picking

Preston made a trip to Half Moon Bay Pumpkin Festival this weekend.
He got to pick out his own pumpkin!

Picking just one was tough. After lots of sniffing and licking, Preston finally made up his mind.

Preston was very happy with his choice.
