The Anticipation is killing me…

I feel the pressure building inside me, my thoughts are racing around in my puppy head, I stare blindly across the kitchen floor…thinking (oooh wait, is that a crumb on the floor?) anyhow, my mind has been pre-occupied all day wondering WHO was going to win American Idol tonight.  Our first thought after Haley Reinhart was booted (ha ha) was to vote for Scotty, but after the performances we saw last night, our votes might now be swayed over to Lauren.  I think she is “IN IT TO WIN IT” as Randy Jackson always says!  Lauren had such a better night of song choices than Scotty, but who knows… Scotty could still win it.  Unfortunately, we will have to wait the entire 2 hour show to find out who wins the whole kit-and-kaboodle Idol crown!  Just a few more hours until we find out….stay tuned!

You know how much my Daddy & Mommy love Halloween, right?  Well, I must know that it is just around the corner, because all that I have been doing lately is playing with my stuffed pumpkin.  This squeaky toy is so huge, but I love it.  I just grab that huge thing and bite real hard and shake the daylights out of it.  Don’t know what I am trying to accomplish, but it is fun!  (this photo Mommy snapped of me really shows off my fluffy tail, eh?)  Anyhow, if anyone wants to check out some really cool Halloween props & accessories, you should pop on over to see my Daddy & Mommy’s website, Themes N Things   They have a lot of seasonal items (just not Halloween) and have a huge inventory of more Halloween props that will be arriving soon, so check back often to see what’s new!

I hope you are having a great day so far…I am going to take a nap so I can stay up for Idol tonight.  I hope America voted correctly…we’ll have to wait & see for ourselves.

Yee-Haw from Nikita Idol!

I’ve Been a Good Girl

I'm tall enough to see out the window now!

Hey everyone, it’s me, Nikita!  I have been busy since the last time I posted something on my blog.  I still chase leaves in the yard, even though Mommy keeps cleaning them all up, I found out too that I am now tall enough to look out the window to see the BIG huge world.  I bark now at the dogs walking by, just want them to know that I am on duty! 

It only took me a week to learn my name and how to sit on command, but coaxing me with treats to do so helps. (it is always appreciated)  It’s been about a week that I haven’t had an accident in the house either (Mommy is happy about that) and I now whine by the back door when I want to go outside.  (phew)  Heck, if that is all that I had to do was whine by the back door to go chase leaves, I would have done this a lot earlier!  (silly leaves) 

Me and my new Hedgehog toy from Grandma

My nice Grandma visits me often and when she does, she brings me a new toy!  (Thanks Grandma – I love you)  Here is a photo of me and my new toy from Grandma.  Mommy might have to sew the nose back on my Hog because I kinda chewed it off a bit, sorry Mommy. 

I also help my Mommy get the eBay packages ready for shipment! (I don’t think that Mommy likes it when I try chewing on the boxes though).  Mommy & Daddy also have a neat website at and they sell all kinds of unique Seasonal items for Halloween, Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, and 4th of July.  Both Daddy and Mommy are really big into Halloween, and some of their props scare me, so I try to stay away from those things because some of them talk too! (yikes) 

Well, that’s it for today because it is time for me to take a nap! (I love naps) But I did hear that Mommy & Daddy are trying to figure out what I should be on Halloween…what do you think? 

Until tomorrow,
