I have been curled up on my Boxer pillow for quite some time because it's been cold in these parts. I hope you all have had a wonderful holiday season and here is wishing you a happy 2009!

My Birthday

Thanks to everyone for the great birthday wishes!

Yesterday night my mommy and daddy took me to my grandparents' house. I played with Max, we ate dinner and they even baked me a cake! My grandma only had three candles left in her cupboard (I actually turned four yesterday) so that's all I got. But the cake was so yummy! Max and I really enjoyed it!

Here's Max after enjoying some cake...

He might look sad, but trust me, he thought it was delicious!

Happy Times Are Here Again

This week I'm at my grandparents' house. I get to spend all my days and nights with my buddy Max! We've been playing non-stop. Here are we pretty tired.

I love car rides. Here is my grandpa driving me somewhere. 

They are cleaning the roof, gutters and chimneys at my house - so my parents sent me to my grandparents' place for the week. They didn't want me roaming around the backyard while workmen were flinging soot from the roof.

Here Max and I topped off a fun-filled day of playtime with a romantic candlelight dinner.

First Dog

(CNN) -- Barack Obama's two daughters had another reason to high-five their dad's election to the presidency Tuesday night: they're getting a puppy.

"Sasha and Malia," Obama said in his victory speech at Chicago's Grant Park, "I love you both so much, and you have earned the new puppy that's coming with us to the White House."

Obama needs to get a Boxer. 'Nuff said.

Change I Can Believe In

Daddy was watching the presidential debate last week. Ugh, so boring. I don't want to watch that crap. I just want to have fun. I can't wait until we start watching Animal Planet again. I hope this election stuff is over soon so we can go back to playing frisbee and taking lots of walks.

How Cool Is This?!?

I totally want one of these jumpy things for my birthday next month.

Boy, How Times Flies

Hey, everyone! Sorry I haven't blogged in a while. My Mommy has been very busy since she started her new high school teaching job. My Daddy has still been taking lots of pictures of me but lately I'm either lounging or asleep in all of them. 

I've been up to all my usual activities - walking with Mommy, playing frisbee with Daddy, being a couch potato and watching tv. I'm just living the boxer life.  

My buddy Max got fixed two weeks ago. I'm not allowed to play with him for another week until he's better. I'm not sure what was wrong with him. I don't think he needed fixing.

Now enjoy a music video from M.I.A. "Paper Planes" is one of my Daddy's favorite songs.

Labor Day Weekend

It was extraordinarily humid last weekend. The thunderstorms in the desert left us with some icky, sticky weather. My mommy and daddy have been using the fan quite frequently. I love standing in front of the magic wind machine because it's the best way to cool off.

Once I'm properly cooled off I curl up on the couch with my favorite pillow. Have I mentioned I love pillows?

Summer Adventures

Daddy lets me sniff his beer.

Yummy - he put some foam on my nose!

I love going for car rides. Sometimes I sneak in the car when my parents are not looking and I hope they'll take me with them wherever they are going. If I'm lucky my parents will strap me in the backseat with my special seatbelt and take for me a drive.

I love my babble ball!

And after a long day of beer drinking, car riding and babble ball playing it's time for a nap!

Babble Ball!

My grandparents bought me a new toy during their trip to Carmel two weeks ago. This toy has become my all-time favorite play thing. It's called a Babble Ball. It makes crazy noises and drives me crazy!

Not of My Species Day

Today is Not of My Species Friend Day. My Not of My Species (NOMS) friend is Marilyn Monroew, a beautiful white house cat with amazing eyes. She has been very busy lately writing writing lovely poems and lounging in her library.

Do any of you have a Not of My Species friend?

Tag, I'm it!

Gucci tagged me with the name game. So, here I go.

What is your name?
Cairo. My mom originally wanted to name me London or Burberry but my daddy didn't like those names. He thought I looked like a Cairo. I responded well to that name, so it stuck.

If you could change your name, what would it be? Supreme Empress of the World.

What is your pet's name? I have several toys...there's Leo the Lion and a giraffe carcass I call Randy. The problem is - most of my toys don't live that long because I destuff them within a few days of meeting them. I like my squeaky soccer ball.

If you could change your pet's name, what would it be? The Dude.

What are your brother and/or sister's name/s? I had two other sisters but I haven't seen them since I was a baby. I live alone with my parents and have the house all to myself! My closest friend is Max the Black Pug who lives with my grandparents.

If you could change their names, what would they be? I would change Max's name to Zoolander, because he acts like a male model.

. . .

I am going to tag Cubby, Bella, Eduardo, Chef and Lorenza.

Keeping Watch

Yesterday we had an earthquake in Southern California. You probably all heard about it.

I was a little shaken up by the initial 5.4 quake - it felt like rolling waves - so I decided to stay vigilant for any aftershocks.

When my parents got home they opened up the door for me. One of my favorite things to do is to look out our front door.

If anymore earthquakes come rolling around I'll be sure to growl and bark and scare them away!

Damn you, Paparazzi!

Here I am having an intimate moment rolling around the carpet on my back when some obnoxious camera-toting human gets in my face and starts snapping photos! Can't a girl enjoy her space a little??

I forgot to tell you about my summer parents went to Europe in June but I got to hang out with my coolest pug friend Max! Check out the pictures of our adventures together!

The 2008 Paw-limpics

I just found out about the 2008 Summer DWB Paw-Limpics from Lenny of Wire Wise. Considering I am quite the athlete (in addition to my skills at lounging) I figured I should enter the competition.

Here I am playing soccer. Eat your diving heart out, Cristiano Ronaldo!

And here I am in the long distance frisbee catch:

I'm also an expert in the game of "keep away":

Oh, and I almost forgot - water-sipping!

This is how I play in the house

I just stumbled upon this commercial this morning. From the look of their jerseys it must be at least three years old. But it combines two of my favorite things - soccer and Boxers!

What are your favorite commercials starring cool canines?

Every Dog Must Have a Pillow

I played with Max all day long. Now I'm tired. I wouldn't even come upstairs to sleep with parents. Hell, this is better. I've got the couch all to myself.

Sleepy Face

My parents caught me sleeping with my tongue out. Of course they thought it was amusing to snap my photo and wake me up their stupid flash.

He tasted good!

I chewed on him and then batted him around the room.

I was tired, so I took a break.

Then I ripped his head off!

Easter is so much fun!

Rooting for the Underdog

I spotted the picture above at Yahoo News. That's Packer the Bulldog. He must be pretty darn excited that his team won yesterday. This got me thinking...what team or teams do you guys support? Do you wear jerseys of your favorite teams? Me...I don't like wearing clothes...only humans wear those stupid things.

Today I'm rooting for the San Diego Chargers over the Indianapolis Colts. San Diego is the closest NFL team to me. They probably don't have much of a chance against the almighty Super Bowl champs but I like rooting for the underdogs!
