It's been sunny and nice for the last 5 days.  As expected in this area its foggy this morning.  I really don't care what the weather is as long as Jim is here I'm ok.  Jim says he doesn't like the fog.  Oh well it means we stay inside longer and I get to sit on his lap and get petted and scratched, nothing wrong with that.
Uh oh, Jim says we have to be outside at 9 because the guy is coming to put 4 new tires on the trailer.  I sure hope it warms up by then or I may have to beg for my coat.

A long weekend

I'm tired.  I had a long weekend last weekend.  Jim was gone from the early, early morning until late in the afternoon.  I sound like I should be rested but worrying takes a lot out of me.
I should have known when he put on those white pants and shirts it was going to a long one.  I don't know where he goes, (he says to the race track but its never been proven to me).
At least when he gets back I get a lot of scratches and hugs.  Today is Tuesday so I should be fully rested by tomorrow.
Jim said I have to put the following

May 2, 2017
It's been a really long time since I put anything on here because I've been soooooo busy.
Jim and I moved to Toro park.  I really like it here, lots of grass and lizards.  I don't chase the lizards any more because I can't catch them.  I just keep an eye on them to make sure they behave.

Last weekend we went to Buttonwillow Raceway Park for, Jim said, a car race.  The reason I went is because they needed my help in race control/stewards room.  I had to ask for pets and get on Jeff's lap as often as possible.  Someone would always take me out for  walk but the first day they didn't give me any treats when I came in.  I did get them trained on that one.

It was a good weekend and I was so tired on the way home I got in the back and curled up for a nap.

Rain! Its raining and everyone is all excited about it.  Ok the people renting the track arn't too excited.
I have finally figure out what rain is.  Water falls from the sky to torment me.  When I go outside to do my busness it falls on me.  I try to get away but it keeps following me.

Yesterday ti stopped raining for a while so my friend Inky came out  and we played fro a while.  Inky is like my friend Dulee, when he gets tired playing he just walkes away.

January 29, 2014
It has been forever since I last wrote anything here.  Life has been good, I've trained Jim on some new stuff, I learned to bark to get what I want from anyone, (mostly scratches), and I've grown a little.

The race season at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca has come and gone.  It was fun, a lot of people visited me and gave me treats, really don't care much about treats, but I ate them to be nice.  I was especially nice about the cheese or any chips they gave me.

My best friend Duuly, can't remember how to spell it, went on a vacation I guess.  (of course you know dogs don't go on vacation, we are always on guard for our master!)  A few weeks after he left Inky starts hanging around and doesn't go home.  He started sleeping under the steps and playing with me.  Inky and I have great fun, he chases me, I chase him, I bounce around and then Inky just leaves. Duuly must have taught him that.  Oh well I just keep playing and bouncing.

One day when Jim was fixing lunch Inky came in and ate my food.  At first I was surprised but I let Inky eat all he wanted.  You know he doesn't get a chance to be inside very much and misses out on all the scratches people have.  He is still a good friend.  

I will try to write something here once a week, if I can get Jim to let me use the computer

April 25, 2013
Have you ever heard be careful what you wish for?  Well I hadn't.  I said I needed a vacation.  It wasn't a wish but I got one any way.  It was not exactly what I wanted but relaxing and stressful at the same time.  Last Wednesday after noon Jim said we are going for a ride Oden.  Yahoo, yippee, let's go.  I got in the car and off we went.  Jim didn't seem too happy about the ride but I was having a great time.  I sat up in the car and watched everything.  I wasn't even feeling sick.  We drove to the vets office.  I hadn't been there in a while so I was happy to go in and see friends.  I marched in just happy as I could be.  All was well until Jim picked me up and gave me a squeeze and said you be good Oden, I'll miss you.
Some man took me and I went back to my room.  It was OK, I'd been there before.  Everyone treats you like your  king.  I got walks and hugs and scratches.   I really missed Jim though.
What seemed like  a couple of minutes or days I'm not good with time, I got a bath and Jim was back.  yipeeeeeee.  Jim picked me up and scratched me and hugged me.  Into the truck and head home.  We made a couple of stops on the way.  The big thing here.  I did not get sick in the car.  I have been working hard on that and it looks like it's working.

What a good night I had.  I stuck close to Jim and got to sleep in my own bed.  Jim thinks it's his so I just let him keep thinking that, it makes him happy.

The next day I got to go down to the Paddock.  What do you think, a new friend, Rosie shows up.  She's younger than I am.  We played wrestled and talked to each other.  Rosie is great fun, I hope she comes back again.


When Jim was gone he went and saw his son, Brian and his grandson, Jimmy.  Jim kept telling me about  Jimmy.  Yea he's cute. Can he lick people, can he jump on Jim's lap, does he know how to bark.  Does he even have a tail to wag when he is happy to see Jim?  None of the above.  I'm not quite sure what the big deal is.  Jimmy can't even give dogs a scratch on the head.

I didn't get back to writing more about new and old friends very fast but a lot has happened.  I'll catch up now
Thursday April 11 Jim got home late and said something about SCCA his here and I got to go with him tomorrow.  I was excited I got to go with him.  I jumped up and down only to have Jim say not until tomorrow Oden.  Geez o Petes, If I'm not going right away don't say anything, I'm a dog I don't know tomorrow from yesterday or today.  Jim is just going to have to learn that.  Maybe I could work out a deal with him less barking for don't say go unless we are.

Friday morning Jim was up early.  I, Oden wisely got a belly rub and then went back to sleep for a while.  I finally got up, Jim got ready and off we went.  We were at the gate talking to everyone.  It was a cold day so I stayed in the truck a lot.  Not very long after we got there my nose went to work, and it works very well, and I caught a sent of a friend I haven't seen in a long time,  Enzo and Shadow were somewhere near!
 I started barking  so Jim would let me out of the truck.  He did and there they were my friends I hadn't seen in a long time.                         ENZO
He has calmed down since last I saw him, but we had a great time.

Shortly after that I saw Porsche, a really pretty retired Greyhound.  She doesn't come over to visit but gives me a glance as she walks by.

I'm not sure what day but I met Powder, Georga, Sugar Plum Ellie and Zoey that weekend they all stoppend and played.  It was great fun.  I was going to  put each name under each of my friends but I am a dog and don't know how to do that so I asked Jim.  Apparently he's not the genius I thought so I have to just lis them going down
POWDER, SUGAR PLUM, GEORGIA, ELLIE AND ELLIE AND ZOEY.  I think I got them right but if not let me know.  (remember I'm a dog and I remember with my nose more than my eyes and this is not smell o computer.)
I really thought after this weekend I need a vacation.
