The Brat

Favorite Toy:
Plushie pig frisbee

Favorite Food:

Favorite Walk:

Best Tricks:
"Be obnoxious"; "Ignore anyone-who-talks-to-me" (the above are self-explanatory)

Arrival Story:
She was the runt of the litter and my grandma (her breeder) was concerned about her chances of survival. Took awhile, but everyone managed to convince Mom to get her.

She was my dad's dog, affectionately known as "the Brat" and "Fat girl." She was a pain in the rear end sometimes, but she was a good girl. I still remember when I took her to work at the dog training/grooming facility... I put her behind the counter when no people were there and she would jump up on the cash box and greet customers for me...

It started small
It started meek
It went on
For just a week
She coughed up blood
Her legs were weak
Her food was bad
It made her ill
But something else
Was worse still
Cancer came
It didn't leave
With nasty tricks
Up its sleeve
It made her sick
It made her sore
And because of it
She is no more.

R.I.P., sweet girl.

Aren't I beautiful, wouldn't you love to pet me? Well you can't. Hahaha...

(You think the typist has a twisted sense of humor? If she could speak, I'd bet money that she'd say exactly that...)


Walking is for Dogs

So, my butler thinks that I need to exercize more often. Today he took me on a SIX MILE HIKE!!! The nerve! At first I thought he was going to take me somewhere *useful* like the park, or the treats store, where I like to be pampered and look down my nose at other, less fortunate pets. It was the most godawful... I was so tired, panting like a *dog*. Ladies are NOT to be treated this way.

I shall have to see to it that my staff is given orders not to disturb me while I am basking in the air conditioner. I shall NOT suffer this poor treatment again!
