Tank is a Spectacle.

Dudes,

This week was health week and Tank and I made a trip to the vet.   I had to get the all clear on my ‘situation’ and Tank had to get some shots and an eye exam. He’s been squinting a bunch lately and made the font on his iphones like 100 point to read his emails, it’s kind of embarrassing.  He has been telling people that he’s going blind.  Um, I’m pretty sure that you’re not blind if you can still see, but it’s Tank and he’s just a little dramatic when it comes to his hypochondria.

I absolutely love going to the vet.  I mean, come on people, there are treats freaking everywhere.  I got a little worked up during Tank’s eye exam because they made me sit in the corner, and I’m like, listen dudes, nobody puts Buggie in the corner! Thankfully the exam was short and I got to get back up on the attention table.  And you know what, it was worth it, because Tank’s new glasses are HOT.

Tanky Potter.

I can’t even tell you what a big change it has been in Tank’s daily life.  He says they give him x-ray vision, but I’m not convinced.  I’m just glad he can see the TV better now because DA BEARS are on today and I’m tired of him constantly asking what the score is.  I’m hoping we can get him some contacts soon because if he even tries to visit me at camp in those eye sores we’re going to be in a fight.

Hope you all had good weekends – I’ve been working on my box jumps a ton so stay tuned for my first fitness exclusive blog post, starring me, Bug, and my good friend ambition.

Stay cool my babies,

Dia de Los PERROS!

Dudes,

Halloween is almost upon us.  This is so exciting. Tank and I have a HUGE party to go to on Sunday with the gang from camp at the ‘off leash’ park at Darden Towe.  There are actual prizes and treats for the winners so you better believe we are taking this seriously.  Tank likes to win.

We had a hasty dress rehearsal in the kitchen today with the moms to make our final costume decisions.

its a SHARK TANK!!!!

I think Tank has nailed it with his final decision but I’m still waffling a bit.  I think it’s going to be a game time decision for me.

Rarrrr! I’m an alligator!

I’m a lady BUG. get it?

check it. I’m a BUG BOMB!

I’m still torn about which costume to choose or if I should go the homemade route but I’ve got 48 hours to make a final decision so I’m not sweating it. yet.

Charlottesville Pups come out to join me and my Pampered Pet’s daycamp friends for some Sunday play and some friendly costume competition.  We’re supporting animal connection, so it’s all in good fun.

Hit me up on Facebook or twitter (@bugsays) and let me know which costume you think I should choose.  I’m pretty sure my boyfriend Toby will be there so it is critical that my costume is a 10.

Stay cool my babies,

Tank has crabs.

Dudes, TANK HAS CRABS.

Just kidding, he only has one. His name’s Herman and in the summertime we swim in him..

Dudes! This is Herman.

After Tank’s afternoon sunbath he likes to cool off with Herman and talk about life. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve come home from camp and found them sharing war stories.  Tanks always talking about ‘nam.

I don’t usually spend that much time with Herman myself, but this week I needed a good soak.  I did back to back extended days at camp last week, plus two runs and a lift with Tank. I was spent.

My Uncle Hargraves came to dinner which was awesome, but I almost fell asleep at the table.  I soldiered through the meal  but when it came time to clean up I was down for the count.

too many dishes.

I hope HR doesn’t think I’m deconditioned because tailgating season is starting soon and I’ve got big plans to bring Bug Juice (my new signature cocktail).

I got up early on Friday and filled all the ice cube trays before camp so I had extras for an end of day ice bath.  Herman was super cool about it – I think he enjoyed the temp change.

I went to bed way early on Friday, and by Saturday morning I felt like a new Bug.   Tank decided to stay up late online (he loves the chatrooms) and was a little slow to start in the AM.

Tank has a case of the crabs.

I bug bombed the bed and got Tank rolling in no time.  We had one of the best training weekends to date – more to come tomorrow.

Stay cool my babies,

Training Day #1

Dudes. This is one exhausted Bug reporting back to you after an action packed weekend.

The moms took Tank and I to the play park by our house and Tank ran me through a more dynamic training series.  I’m not gonna lie, it was killer, but I’m confident that his programming is preparing me both physically and mentally for the most demanding of challenges.

Check out our training facility.

Let me tell you, my paws are still screaming from the lateral jumps and wind sprints, but like Tank always tells me, ‘this ain’t disneyland.’

After the physical workout we moved into the mental exercises.  Tank says it’s important for me to push myself and test my mental sharpness after each practice session.  Yesterday our focus was on my reflex and reaction timing.

Tank, do we have insurance?

I drove the tractor while Tank dropped my old babies in my path and I had to dodge them, weaving through the terrain to avoid any casualties.

RIP Mr. Cow, you will be missed.

We took today off so Tank and I just goofed around the park scoping out the scene a little more so we could plan out this weeks training.

Tank thinks he’s 007.

Idaho? No, YOU da hoe.

We’ve got a big week coming up so the rest of the day we just hung out at the house and got some sun.  Sunning is one of Tanks favorite things.  I’ve got to admit, its growing on me.

Tank is WAY tanner than me.

Stay cool my babies.
