All About Me

I just realized I never started a diary! Woof! I'm such a silly boy. So much has been going on in the past three weeks that I forgot!

A few weeks ago Momma saw me peeing blood. I felt totally fine, acting as crazy as I always do, but Momma sure seemed scared. So I had to go see the vet lady and she took pictures of my belly. I thought that was kinda weird but Momma said they were SPECIAL pictures that could see INSIDE my belly. Weird. Anyway, vet lady said I had something called bladder stones and I had to have surgery to get them out.

I had no idea what that meant, but Momma was leaking from her eyes a LOT that day and kept hugging me and kissing me. I hate hugs. Kisses are good, though. She was also talking about money a lot that day, too.

Two days later I went back to the vet lady YAY! Except they CUT ME OPEN. Boo. It HURT. Bad. And I had to wear that stupid lampshade every day. I HATED that stupid collar. Daddy joked that I could be a lamp for Halloween. Momma didn't think that was funny. I just wanted to sleep.

I wore that stupid cone for TWO WEEKS. I licked open a stitch at one point and they used a STAPLE to shut me back up! OW. Not cool, vet lady. Not cool at all. Poor Momma had to sleep on the living room floor with me for a few days cause I couldn't get in the bed. I kept bonking her with my cone because I NEED to snuggle every night but I couldn't fit on the air mattress with my stupid cone. I HATE that cone.

I finally got my staples out and the vet lady said I don't have to wear my cone anymore HOORAY! But Momma said I smelled BAD and then *gasp* HORROR OF HORRORS! She gave me a BATH. THAT'S ALMOST AS BAD AS THE CONE! But then I was allowed to snuggle with her, so I guess that's ok.

The only good thing out of all of this was I got to eat a LOT of hot dogs that Momma stuffed with little white things! Although that eventually turned out to be a problem. I started puking. So Momma makes me special food now that's chicken and rice and Pepcid and I LOVE that.

I go back to the vet lady this Thursday to get more pictures of my belly. Keep your fingers crossed that there's no more rocks in there. Momma keeps talking about a special diet that I'll have to eat, but I'm MORE than happy to keep eating chicken and rice and Pepcid everyday!

Momma's been so busy lately, and I need her to type my diary entries cause I don't have thumbs!

Anyhow, things are going ok. I have to go back to the vet lady in February for another picture of my belly to see if I have any more stones. The last one was inconclusive because there was something there that the vet wasn't sure what it was. I'm eating my special diet, which I like, but momma is still looking into other things for me to eat cause she's scared of all the fat in the food, which she says is bad for doggies like me.

Momma also says she's going to "stop being so dramatic", which is just silly because momma is ALWAYS dramatic. She says she loves me forever and she wants me to have the best life possible, no matter how long it is, so she's going to stop moping around. As long as I have a warm lap to sit in, I'm just fine and dandy. She really does need to stop hugging me, though. I don't like that.

Thanksgiving was fun. I want to my grammy and pap pap's house and played with their crazy schnauzer, Thumper. Momma was a little upset, though, cause she told everyone "NO TABLE SCRAPS FOR FIZZY!" (which made ME upset! NO TURKEY???) Anyhow, I kept slinking around, putting my head in everyone's laps and giving my very bestest puppy dog eyes, but no one caved. Except they kept asking momma "No turkey?" "Just a LITTLE bit of mashed potatoes?" "One little black olive won't kill him, would it?" Apparently it will, cause no one gave me anything.

And now Momma is getting out the Christmas stuff, which means Ho Ho is coming!! Momma says Ho Ho's real name is Santa, but I still call him Ho Ho. Momma says Ho Ho can't bring me any treats this year, but that maybe I could ask him for a new collar and leash since I broke my retractable leash at the vet lady's place and Momma doesn't like to take me for walks on my plain leash cause it scares her.

Does Ho Ho bring toys?


Ho Ho Ho!

The tree is up and lit and there's some snow coming down and I'm ready for Ho Ho!! This is exciting! Momma says Ho Ho can't bring me treats, but she called the vet lady, and the vet lady said flavored Nyla bones are ok, so I'm asking Ho Ho for lots of those!! And Momma says if I'm extra good she'll bake me special treats JUST for me that no one else can have! WOOF!!

I went to the groomers today. They love me lots. Momma forgot to tell them "no treats", so I'm not telling if I had any. They DID give me a bag full of treats for Christmas. Momma felt too bad telling them I can't eat them...she says she'll tell them next time I get a haircut. So Momma's taking the treats to her friend's doggie, Vinnie. She says it's my Christmas present to him!!

Do you think Ho Ho would bring me a squirrel? Not a toy one, I want a REAL one to play with!! I don't think Momma likes that idea...


Best Day Ever!

I'm having the best day ever! First, Momma and daddy were supposed to go out to brunch this morning, but it got canceled cause there's lots of ice, so I got to sleep in and snuggle with Momma. Then, Momma doesn't feel too good (she keeps saying her head's gonna explode!), so she's been hanging out in her recliner all day and I get to sit in her lap! I've been snoozing and snuggling all day and every now and them Momma rubs my ears and tells me I'm doing a good job taking care of her!!

Are you watching, Ho Ho? I'm being a good let's talk about that squirrel I want for Christmas...


Naughty or Nice?

Momma just told me that Ho Ho has a naughty and nice list! Uh oh...maybe I should help Ho Ho out and remind him of all the GOOD stuff I did this year so maybe he'll forget the naughty...

Let's see...

* I take real good care of Momma when she's sick. One time, she was up all night throwing up and I sat outside the bathroom door and waited for her.

* I'm a real good snuggler.

* I keep Momma warm at night cause she gets real cold sometimes.

* I give kisses ALL the time.

* I say hi to the mailman every day! Nice and loud, too, so he can hear me!

* I say hi to my neighbor's dog, Lucy, every time I see her, and I make sure I sniff her GENTLY cause she's still a puppy and I'm a BIG boy!

* I play with my cousins, Natalie and Joshie, real nice. Natalie is my best friend.

* I show Uncle Thumper how a REAL schnauzer is supposed to act. It's ok to be crazy SOME of the time, but he forgets how to snuggle sometimes.

* I told my toy moose ALL about Ho Ho and even put him in front of the tree to wait. Momma thinks moose might be a spy, but I SWEAR, he's just waiting for Ho Ho to show up!

* I kissed away all Momma's leaky water stuff from her eyes when I was sick.

* I was a REAL GOOD BOY when I was sick. I didn't complain too much, and I even let Momma HUG me.

* I don't complain when I don't get any more cheese. I'm sad on the inside, but I try not to let Momma see it. It would make her eyes leak.

* I help Momma shred the junk mail.

* When Daddy has to fix something in the house I sit with him and supervise to make sure he doesn't get hurt.

* I chase away all the squirrels, birds, and caterpillars in our yard.

* I saved a cat that my neighbor lost.

* I'm really really REALLY cute.

I was going to do a naughty list, too, but Momma says that Ho Ho sees everything. Crap. He already knows..but Ho Ho, I've been MOSTLY good, I swear! It's not EASY being such a good schnauzer!

All I want is my own squirrel. Or a panda. I saw one of them on the TV box and boy was it cute! If you can't find a squirrel, Ho Ho, I'll take a panda!!

Lots and lots and lots of SNOW! Snow to eat! Snow to frolic in! Snow to pee in! Snow to roll in!



Ew Momma!

The past couple of nights when we go to bed, I've been giving Momma lots and lots of kisses. Like 10 minutes worth! Momma says she thinks I'm trying to butter her up so she'll tell Ho Ho how good I've been. But that doesn't make any sense. I don't have any butter. I'm not even allowed to EAT any butter. I'm too small to get into the magic box of food to even look for any. And even if I DID have butter I wouldn't put it on Momma. That's weird. I'd just EAT it (even though I'm not supposed to.)

All I'm trying to do is remind Momma that I'm a good boy and I really really REALLY want my own squirrel. And a panda. A few ear rubs will be good, too.

Geeze Momma...she's so weird...

Momma and Daddy only have one more wake up and then they're off for 11 whole days! That's 11 whole days they get to spend with ME, Fizzy!! I get to sleep in with Momma and play with Daddy and visit Uncle Thumper and OH YEAH! HO HO IS COMING!!! These are some exciting times we live in!

But last night Momma said I might be on the NAUGHTY LIST! I decided I NEEDED to play at midnight. But Momma and Daddy were already in bed sleeping, but...but...I wanted to play. And when they wouldn't play I decided I HAD to go potty right then and there, even though I had just GONE potty at 11 PM. So I woofed and I woofed and I woofed...everyone ignored me, so I jumped up on the bed, then down off the bed, then up on the bed, then down off the bed...I kept woofing too. Then Momma shouted "You're on Ho Ho's naughty list!!!!" and took me out to the front yard to potty...crap. I was just a little wound up!! Just a little, Ho Ho, I can't HELP it! I'm 5 years old but really, I'm still a puppy on the inside...

Can I come off the naughty list now? I been real good aaaaaaaall day...promise...


Merry Christmas!

Ho Ho came! Ho Ho came! And he brought me a SQUIRREL! Ok so it's not a real one, it's a fake, but it LOOKS real! And it squeaks, too! THANK YOU HO HO! He also brought me some Nyla bones, both chicken and liver flavored! And a new leash so me and Momma can go on walks!

Then I went to Grammy and Pap Pap's house and GUESS WHAT? Ho Ho stopped there for me too! He gave me a Nyla bone (YAY!) and a new sweater!! I've never liked wearing clothes before but I'm LOVING my sweater! Momma says a whole new window of opportunity has opened for her. I dunno what that means, but Daddy sort of groaned, so it can't be good. Anyhow, Momma's gonna put a picture of me hugging my squirrel and me in my new sweater on my page real soon, so look for them!

And now I just wanna say Merry Christmas to all my pup friends and their people. Be grateful for every day you have, cause you never know what's gonna happen. Pups, be sure to show your people every day how much you love them and how grateful you are to have a nice, warm home with plenty of food, toys and love. Not every pup has that. People, be sure to show your pup every day how much you love them. Give them plenty of ear rubs and hugs (if you're into that sort of thing) and kisses. Forgive your pups when they're a little bit naughty. It's part of our charm, after all!

Merry Christmas!


Is it Spring Yet?

Snow snow snow. More and more snow every day. I LIKE the snow, but it's getting to be too much. It's hard for a little dog like me to go potty in all the snow! Good thing I got my sweater from Ho Ho it keeps me nice and warm outside.

Momma is also sick of the snow. When she came downstairs this morning and saw the sidewalk covered in snow AGAIN, she said some naughty words. I told her, you're lucky Ho Ho already came, cause he would NOT like those words. She says she's ready for spring. And then I reminded her of the war she had last year with the squirrels and the chipmunks over her garden and sunflowers. She said maybe she could wait a LITTLE while longer.

Me, I'll just take a nap until winter is over.
