Tough day at the office

I had to go into work to help my Dad because, as we all know, the hoomans are pretty helpless without us.

First I had to make sure the desk was stable.

Then I was tired of working and had to take a Woofboard break.

Then I was just plain tired and had to take a nap.

The beach!

Today I got to go to the beach for the very first time. It was pretty cool.

This was the view on our drive there.

Mom said "this ain't Floridah" as we walked up this hill. I don't know what she meant. I had lots of fun running up and down, up and down, up and down!

Here's Dad and me in front of Haystack Rock. Big whoop! But it was better than the crater from yesterday because at least we could see it.

This is my first time in the ocean! I didn't like it.

It wasn't so bad when the water receded.

Mom wanted me to pose for her in various shots because I'm such a good model.

I needed my Doggles but Mom left them at home. The day started off hazy and overcast but soon turned to bright sun! It made me all squinty.

I liked the sand under my toeses.

The big crater

Okay, today we went to go see a big crater. Mom said it's called "Mt. St. Helen's". Um, it's a big crater that exploded way back in 1980, waaaayyyy before I was even thought about.

Here we are crossing over the Oregon/Washington bridge. I don't know why Mom took a pic of it. She's weird.

Here we are stopped right before this really big and long bridge to get to the crater. As you can see, Dad is kissing me because the 'rents are still trying to make up for yesterday. I didn't have the heart to tell him he's kissing the wrong end.

Here we are at Crystal Lake. It was created waaaayyy back in 1980 after the big crater exploded. It was kinda cool but I'm not going to tell that to the 'rents. There were people who fawned all over me too because I'm the cutest dog on the west coast. It's true. Mom said so.

Here's some dead trees from the explosion. It's been 27 years and they still haven't grown back yet!

Okay, the picture you've all be waiting for! The BIG CRATER:

Yeah, that's what I thought too. Big whoop. It's covered by fog and clouds.

After we went and looked at the fog and clouds, er Mt. St. Helen's, we came back to the hotel and then we all walked up to a doggie boutique that is only a couple blocks over. I got a new jacket and some liver treats.

All in all, it was a good day. Don't tell them, but I've completely forgiven the 'rents for yesterday's humiliation. The 5 hour plane ride was sooo totally worth it. I am having a great time out here. Tomorrow we are going to someplace called Cannon Beach. Mom said it's really dog friendly and I'll get to walk in the Pacific Ocean! It sounds totally cool.

And for those wondering about my plane ride, we flew on Northwest. I weigh, ahem, 16lbs because I likes to eat. Everyone at the airport loved me (duh). When we got on the plane, I had to go under the seat but once we were in the air, Mom put the carrier on her lap. All the passengers around us kept telling Mom and Dad how fantastically awesome I am and how much more pleasurable my company was compared to the gazillion crying kids on the plane. I think you should all fly out here and we can have a party. Ikes, you can stay in my room.

Oh my dog you guys!

They weren't lying!! They really did stuff me under the seat for 5 hours. I thought for sure they were joking. I was sooooo mad. Mom was afraid to take a pic of me on the plane because she thought I was going to rip her head off. Did I mention I was sooo mad?!

Here I am after we picked up the rental car. I was still soooo mad.

Here I am in the hotel. Mom filled my belly with Merrick's Pot Pie so I forgave her but then I got really tired. Mom said I had a long day. Well, duh. Let me stuff her under a seat for 5 hours. Stoopid 'rents.

Au revoir!

Ruby asked about my travel bag so I thought I'd let you all know it's a Sturdibag.

Mom told me again no first class but we'll see if I can work my charm on the airport people. I'm pretty sure they will bump me up and make the 'rents sit in coach. Serves them right!

Here I am ready to go.
i cont breeve...

That's a little better. Whew!

I want it now!

I told Mom & Dad they must buy this for me now. Seriously. Now. I. Want. It.

Here's an older photo of me (during my Gwen Stefani phase) enjoying my iPod Nano.

Tenacious M

Out of all my nicknames, this is my personal favorite. I think it describes me to a T. Here I am demonstrating how tenacious I can be.

I know you can't see or hear him, but Dad is crying 'cause I tried to rip his elbow from his arm. heh-heh-heh

My middle name

Ruby tagged me about my middle name. Here are the rules:

1. Post the rules before you give the facts.
2. List one fact that is somehow relevant to you and your life for each letter of your middle name. If you don’t have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had.
3. When you are tagged you need to write your post using your middle name and facts about it.
4. At the end of your post, choose one dog (or more) to tag for each letter of your middle name. Be sure to let each puppy know she/he has been tagged. (It's okay if you don't do this... tag who you want to tag!)

Mom & Dad call me Martha Ru so I guess that's my middle name.

R - really, really cute
U - unique

Everyone has probably already shared their middle name by now, so I tag anyone who is left.

Along with my middle name, I have lots of nicknames. I get called The Fabulous Miss M, The Divine Miss M, Tenacious M, Munkee, Farty Marty, Poofer and Martharoni.

Here's a random photo of me trying to sleep in Ernies' crate but the $@%$@# pupparazzi won't leave me alone.
