Los Angeles Trip I

After the thanksgiving feast, Preston took a road trip to LA with Mommy, Daddy and Uncle Allen. It was a 6-hour drive and Preston slept through it.
Preston was a VIP (Very Important Poochie) in the hotel. They even had a dog bed for Preston.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving dinner was at Great Auntie Amy’s house this year. Mommy made sweet potato casserole, one for the dinner table and one for Preston!

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.

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.
