I was 13 years old yesterday and Alanea says that I am very good.  She is always washing my face with a washcloth but Dave only baths me.  I sat right on the table outside last night and had a little Champagne to celebrate my birthday.  I went to the beach this morning for a birthday walk, Alanea says that it can be my birthday for 2 weeks.  The sunrise was nice.  I cannot drink Champagne every day for 2 weeks but cookies work.

Summer time

Holy moly it is very hot here and I am not going outside very much.  Dave is getting out of bed at 06:00 and taking me for a walk before he goes off to the fitness club.  It is not too hot at 06:30 but by 10:00 it is 35 to 40 degrees and even Dave the ex paper boy from Ontario Canada says it is hot.  When an ex paper boy from the snow belt says it is hot it is hot.
Alanea said that I can get into the spa that they bought but I don't like it too much.  I am going to get a hair cut next week, maybe that will cool me down.  I have posted a photo of Dave in the spa.  He said that it is a good thing.
The vet said that I had an infection and my surgery is all healed up.  Nothing to worry about, poor Alanea worries too much.  I am very strong.
Dave went to the Tour de France finish in Paris on July 26th.  Here is a photo of Peter Sagan.
I added a photo of the sunset from my terrace.

Very strange weather, cold and rain in Paris hot here.  He was gone for 4 nights and Alanea thought that was Ok because she likes to have me all to herself.  She fusses to much but I get good food.
Dave dropped the pizza stone and broke it in half.  A new one came today.  He always says that stuff only happens to people that do things.  I guess that's why it happened to Dave.

Beach walking

Today July 20 was my 1st beach walk after my surgery.  I feel pretty good but Dave put the cone on my head again yesterday when I accidentally scruffed my face on the furniture and almost made it bleed again.  That was a dumb move but now I am OK.  It is hot here and I am very tired now.  I am not looking forward to my bath today but it will cool me down I think.  Alanea said I deserved the cone so I better be good today.

On the mend

I got the cone off of my head and the 3 stiches out.  Dave said that I was a brave boy.  It is very hot here so I am staying in the house and drinking water.

Sad sack

I am not happy today because I had a little surgery on my eye on Thursday.  I am too hot and sore to have fun but I still have my appetite.  More to come but for now must wait for biopsy.  No worries, I will be OK.

New adventure every day

Yesterday Dave and Alanea took me for a car ride because I would not let them go without me and I know that I am welcome everywhere, unlike Old Dave.  They took me to a new sales office at Chateau D'Esclans on the route to Callas.  The old sales cave was rustic and small and I have been there many times but the new one is very nice with a painting of the Chateau on the wall.  Alanea was totally thrilled because she met Sacha Lichine the owner of D'Esclans, he is a legend in the wine business and produces some of the best rose in the world.  He is a big guy and very friendly with me.  Alanea bought wine and got a wooden wine box for books.  She took photos of the Hydrangeas that line the driveway.  They have very good wine, Alanea says.  After we finished at D'Esclans we went for lunch in Callas which is always nice and then drove home the long and twisty way.  I always sit on a chair and watch people eat.  The roads here can be twisty but we always get to where we are going.
Today I went walking on the beach and Dave brushed my teeth and gave me a bath when we got home.  I am feeling tired now because it is hot here but as long as Alanea does not move around too much I don't have to follow her.  The tourists are starting to fill the roads so I won't be going too far for a few weeks.

Alanea's trip to Paris

Well Alanea had an exciting time in Paris visiting with all of her friends and getting “culture”.  She really likes that museum stuff and all those restaurants!!!  I stayed home with Dave and relaxed in the back yard.

My excitement of the week was visiting the vet yesterday and getting stabbed (blood work) which I passed with flying colours and the vet told me I was “vraiment gentil” and gave me 2 cookies. 

So here are some pictures from the Paris trip.  A special shout out to Audrey (she is in the photo with Laura, Gene and her little sister Clara.  Laura told Alanea that Audrey reads my blog and wondered how I could type… Audrey “hi” to  you from me and some things need to remain a secret.

The other pics are from the Jacquemart Andre museum.  She and Nan had a lovely brunch in the cafe which has a Tiepolo fresco on the ceiling…..blah, blah blah.  The lion looks scary though.
