75 degrees!

So it's 75 degrees outside which means sunbathing and panting and long walkies and peeing on everything and scratching huge chunks of grass out of the ground and smelling stuff and pooping without getting cold and squirrels and rabbits and flowers .... YES!!!!

And this is a picture of my mom letting me have the chair all to myself which was only for the picture and then I had to lay on her which I like anyway because she's softer than the cheap chair.

And I'm just looking handsome here.

And this is a picture of how happy I am to be outside with my mom - notice how tough I look in the skull and crossbones bandana.

And this is a picture of these really gross swarming ants that my mom said were going to make her puke but I thought were cool and I thought she should help me add to the blog because dogs like swarming ants as long as they aren't fire ants because they bite.

Hey Ike...
Wow - what a difference from snow last week, huh? You look quite studly in your skull & crossbones bandana...very tuff!

Please thank your Mom for the info on my owie...that's really good info to know and made my Mom feel a little less worried. I actually think it's gotten a little bit smaller in the last few days, but we will keep you posted.

Lots of Licks - and enjoy that sun!

I wish we had 75 degrees here! Mom made me say that! I honestly prefer the cooler weather!
Those ants are yucky! Did you taste them?

Love ya lots,

Yes! Fire ants ARE terrible! I was attacked by some a couple of weeks ago. Do you get them in Minnesota? I thought they were only a southern thing.

I'm glad you're having some great weather, Ike. Hope it stays that way :)

Hi Ike,
You are one tough looking guy in your skull and crossbones bandana!! Ohhh.. I feel that I am itching all over just looking at the ants!

Hey Ike,

you kinda look like you're doing doga (dogyoga), you sort of have a contemplative look happening.

Just sayin'.

Chow for now,

You definately look very handsome in the skull & crossbones. I am so jealous, I wish all clouds and rain would go away so I can sit in the sun with mommy too.

by the way, did you eat any ants. I love eating ants.

Frenchie Kisses,

Isn't the warmer weather great! We have turkeys running around our back yard. (Tank and I scared them away this morning!) Oh, I hope you didn't try to eat any of those ants. They taste yucky!

My mom says you look very cute in your bandana but I think you look very manly so don't worry.
Those ants are yucky. Ant bites like to make me swell up so I don't like ants.

Ants are so much fun! They play with me a lot - they run around and I get to chase them and pick them up in my mouth and spit them back out and chase them some more!

Ruby Bleu said...

Ike - your famous!!! I just saw that you are the Picture of the Week on Little Beasts - Yipee!!!!

You are just the handsomest...even with a curly tongue!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Those are some great shots of you! That bandana rocks!

We hate ants, they hurt lots when you step on their house. :(

Yippeeee! Warm weather, finally! We like your bandana and your fetching tag!
We think ants are yucky... unless they're boiled in beef broth!

Ike--Wow! I'm comin' to Minnesota! (My ma says she loves the MN so she's totally cool with my plan so long as I bring her).

Your pictures in the sun are AWESOME. Your ma is a fantastic photographer.

Ike, you look fantastic in blue and in skulls and crossbones. I'm still swooning if the whole brown thing. I wish one of you lived by me! Tell your mom to boil the kettle and poor it straight down the ant hill (if you can find it). That's a rural trick we learned one day when we were in the country ... but not the same day as we saw the weird giant cow.

Myeo said...

Why is there a swarm of ants there?

You look cool in the bandana!

wow, you look totally tough in that bandana. One time doofus ate part of a donut that was COVERED in ants, he said they tasted good!
