First Time, Long Time

Sorry to all the fans of McCoy the Vizsla for the lack of posts over the last 2 weeks. McCoy would like to report that he is doing GREAT! Mom and Dad have had a lack of free computer time because Mr. McCoy would much rather be playing and running around outside then letting us type on the computer. The only reason Dad is typing right now is because he is sleeping on my shoulder. All else is well and we hope to have some new pictures either today or tomorrow. Thanks for checking in and check back later for a more complete post.

July 16 Fireworks!

Yesterday dad and I spent the day getting ready for the annual fireworks picnic we have. Every July 16 there is a huge fireworks show down in town. Since our street is up on the hill we have a great big picnic with our friends and family. I was so excited... my first party! I was very helpful and behaved very well and then all my favorite people came over to see me (and to spoil me and bring me new toys!) I was excellent the whole night and didn't beg for food at all...and I even slept all the way through the whole fireworks show on Dad's lap!
I had a great time, and I think Mom and Dad should have picnics more often (more picnics means more people to run around with me)!

At Work with Dad!

Yesterday I got to go to work with Dad all day, and visit the helicopter!My dad is a flight paramedic on the big helicopter. I met some of the people he works with and got to play with all of them. I had a great day, and Dad was able to spend most of the day with me in between flights. Then Mom drove out to pick me up and have dinner with us. I wasn't even scared of the noise from the helicopter when dad landed! (Mom held on to me tightly!) I can't wait to go back and play with Mr. Cheese and Matty Mo! (They called me Airdog2...)
I don't think I can go to work with Mom yet...

My Better Side...HaHa

Ooooh, daddy is mad at me. He realized that I always seem to "do my business" for mom, but when he walks with me, I just like to play! He doesn't understand how much I love to play with him and how important playing is for me to grow up! (Mom is kind of tough on me when I'm walking, she says that I remind her a lot of some other stubborn dog, someone named "Pavo"). I'm going to do my best tomorrow for him, and will try really hard not to do any more "business" in the house...and I'll try even harder not to do it on the white carpet! I'm doing really well with going in my crate without crying, though, so they're still very proud of me! I'm still growing and learning!

Day at Home with Dad

Today I had a relaxing day at home with Dad - all day! I did get to walk with him while he was on a bike, and I'm learning, very slowly, how to do that. I also got to play with the big dogs (Moca and Panda) across the street and met my first german shepard (Simba) - he didn't seem to impressed with my big boy bark. The cheetah still won't play with me, but I'm doing very well with my potty training! I'm even starting to amuse myself from time to time with some of my toys...but I still like to demand constant attention from whoever happens to be nearby! I even pretended to stay asleep while Mom and Dad ate dinner and didn't beg (but that is because I got into the cat bowl at Pris' house and managed to get a few bites before I was caught).
All in all, a very good day!

Weekend at the Shore

This was the best weekend ever! I got to spend time with my Aunt Linda, my Grandpa and my Uncle Robbie - who likes to throw me around, and laughs when I keep coming back for more! I was very, very confused about the fact that there wasn't grass down the shore, but I did my best. Now I'm back, and rested after a nice vacation, and I will not sleep until that cat plays with me (she's getting a little annoyed, I think...). Today I met my niece Caitlin - and this weekend I had the whole Steiner crew playing with me on the couch! I've gotten a lot of spoiling and love and new toys, and I couldn't be happier. I'm pretty exhausted from all of this growing I'm doing (even my bite is stronger, and now I can jump off of the couch without help!), so I'm going to get some rest, and maybe tomorrow Cheetah will finally play with me!

Mom says I'm a looker...

Just one more because it is Mom's favorite...have a happy holiday everybody!

July 4th

Happy Fourth of July! I am so excited to go down the shore and visit with my new family! (I heard they are the ones who bought me some of my favorite toys...) I do miss my brother and sisters, and sometimes cry and go from room to room looking for them, but I've figured out how to to get in and out of the door that is too high for me, and I think I even recognize which place is mine when we're out walking. Last night I was very good and didn't even cry when I went into my crate...but then this morning I also had my first accident. I really don't like going out to walk when the grass is wet, but Mom and Dad said I had to get over that fast! I even started to try out my soft bed that Pris and Caroline bought for me! The cheetah (my stepsister, the cat) is even being fairly nice to me, but I'm still very hurt and confused because I keep trying to play with her and she doesn't want to play with all. Mom and Dad also finally figured out that if I run around for about a half an hour really hard before bed, I go to sleep much faster, and will cry less in the crate. I'm going to get to spend some time with my neighbors tonight while Mom and Dad are at a wedding, and then down to the beach we go! My first holiday with the family - I hope there are lots of treats!

Day 3 in Jersey!

Hello to all that have come by here to check me out. I am McCoy the vizsla! I was named after "Jack McCoy" from the TV show "Law and Order." I came home from Ms. Debbie's house on Monday of this week to my new home in Gillette, New Jersey. My Mom Alycia and Dad Kevin are the best! I have met so many people in the first few days and even made friends with Panda and Moca who live across the street. I had my well puppy check yesterday and Dr. Donna says I look Great! I plan on adding stuff all the time so keep checking back to watch me grow up and see what I'm doing!
