My Dad and I were up and out early yesterday…I got to go “by-by in the car” TWICE!  My Dad bought a new camera last week.  He has been in the market for a new camera ever since reading about a NOKIA Cell phone that had a 20 megapixel camera.  My Dad has a Verizon semi-smart phone with a 3.5 Megapixel camera, and an older Samsung 5.3 Megapixel digital camera.  My Dad takes a lot of pictures and has been quite happy with the results of the aforementioned cameras.  Wednesday he stopped at Abt in Glenview and purchased a Sony CE5000 that has a 20.1 Megapixel image sensor.  Did I mention that I DO NOT like having my picture taken?  Here I’ll prove it.  See this picture, with the view of my ticked back?  Ha!  That was no accident by My Dad.  I saw the camera coming up to his face, he called my name and I IMMEDIATELY turned around and put my back to him.


OK…Back to the mail trucks.  We drove from home base in Wheeling to the bank in Northbrook…My Dad needed to get an affidavit notarized…I think he served paper on some deadbeat.  Any, I saw A LOT of Mail Trucks, over 12, maybe 15 or 16.  They were EVERYWHERE!  And when I see a mail truck, I MUST inform them that they have been spotted…my bark gets DEEPER, more threatening.  “I SEE YOU MAIL TRUCK, YOU ARE NOT FOOLING ANYONE, GET AWAY FROM THE SCION…I MEAN IT!  After the bank run to Northbrook, MY Dad let me stay outside while he washed the xB.  Then I got to go on ANOTHER ride in the car.  Like I said in earlier stories, I AM VERY CHATTY.  I like to bark at just about everything.  My Dad had his orange earplugs in, it was a gorgeous day, the windows were down…great stuff for a Border collie.

Me in the back of the Scion…see how comfy it is?





Time to go to soccer with My Dad…he has three games today.  Have a great Sunday!



  1. Cody! Hello from your best bud here in Ohio, Bailey. My mom read me the stories about your adventures and I really miss you coming over and pushing my dad around. I live in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park,and I think you would love to come and see it. There are lots of noises and smells that I think you would love. There is a big train that comes through that I heard you looooove to bark at. Woof Woof, Bailey.
