Momma has not been very good about helping me update my diary, pups. She hasn't even changed my background to something Eastery! She can't help it though.
Momma had a bit of a health scare last week, but don't worry pups, she's FINE. It turns out that Momma wasn't sick at all, but her brain is overworked. That's what the doctor said. That her brain is under too much stress for too long and it's making her think she's sick with really bad things when she's as fit as a fiddle. I've seen fiddles, pups. I don't know that I'd call them "fit". Skinny, maybe. Anywoof, Momma and her doctor talked about it, and Momma says she's proud to say that she's going to get the help that she needs. The doctor was shocked when Momma told her some of the terrible things that have happened over the past few years and said it was a miracle that Momma was up and functioning at all. And you know what, pups? Momma said "You're right, Doctor lady! And it's time I did something about it!" So she is.
I'm very proud of Momma. See, I'm a good Nurse for her, and I listen to everything she has to say. I comfort her when she's scared, and I lick away her leaky eye drops. But Momma says she's just not herself and she's tired of it.
Personally, I was hoping the doctor would tell Momma that a cure would be taking me for more walks and a daily dose of cheese, but nope. Momma said we could compromise on the walk thing but not the cheese. Boo.
While we haven't posted much ourselves, we HAVE been reading all my friends' diaries! We may not always comment on them, but we're reading! Promise!!
Love you, pups!

I'm a diary pick today, pups! I'm so honored! Thanks to all my pals who sent me rosettes! You pups are the greatest!!
I'm driving Momma bonkers tonight. I got the spring fever real bad, and I keep wanting to go out. Then come in. Then go out. Then come in. Then go...well, you get the picture. I can't help it, Momma!! Someone threw a piece of bread in one of our bushes outside (Momma: "Who the *$#@ throws bread in someone's shrub????") and I keep wanting to go out and smell around it. Momma threw away the bread, but I can still smell it. Momma says a bunch of weirdos live around here, cause who throws away their bread? And in someone's yard?? She doesn't think it was a birdie cause it was a whole piece of bread, not a little chunk. I just wanna sniff and sniff and sniff...

The vet said I'm great today, pups. I already knew that, but apparently the vet had to stick me with needles and charge Momma a gajillion dollars before anyone would believe me.
I survived it. But I really coulda done without the needle part.

I had a wonderful weekend, pups! Momma and Daddy were off on Friday, and the weather was perfect! Me and Momma played in the backyard, and she tried to burn some hot dogs on the grill, but the grill ran out of juice or something and she had to finish them inside the house. I was super interested in them hot dogs. Momma says she's never seen me get so close to the grill. But BOY they smelled so GOOD! No sharing though. :(
Saturday we played outside again cause it was super nice. And THEN, I got to go to Grammy and Pap Pap's house cause it was Pap Pap's barkday, and I got to see my BFF Natalie!! We played and laughed and snuggled and chased! I heart Natalie the mostest. Well, the mostest after Momma and Daddy.
Today we kinda chilled out. Momma just reminded me, though, that tomorrow is my day to go to the dogtor for my yearly check-up. ACK! They better not stick anything up my bummy!!! What, Momma? Oh..she says they won't use the bummy thing no more, they'll beep my ear instead. Good. But nobody better be giving me shots!!!! What, Momma? They ARE???? I'm due for my rabies shot??? But I don't HAVE rabies!!! What? Well, I don't care if it'll keep me from getting rabies, I don't want any shots!!!!!
Crud. Pray for me, pups. I don't like the shots. Or the dogtor much. Booooooo.

Oh boy, pups! It's been super dooper warm here! It feels like it should be late April, but Momma says its only mid-March! There's a lot of birdies and bunnies running around, and the chipmunks should be here soon! The chipmunks are Momma's arch nemesis, but I think they're fun to chase!
In other news, our house STINKS. Momma had to make a bunch of something she calls haluski for an International Day Luncheon they have at school every year. She says it tastes really good, but pups, my house reeks of onions and cabbage. Blech. Momma dropped a piece of that cabbage when she was chopping it up, and I tried to snag it, but she told me I wasn't allowed. Not only cause of my diet, cause she says cabbage causes bad gas smells, and my gas smells bad enough BOL! She used so much butter in that haluski stuff that she says her face feels like it did when she was a teenager. I dunno what that means, but she says to trust her, it's NOT a good thing.
Momma's gonna go take a shower now while I try to get rid of the cabbage stink from my fur. Thank goodness it's warm enough to open the windows!!

I think Dogster has fleas again, pups. I've been exchanging p-mails with Puffy and Coco and their Momma, and then today Dogster told me I couldn't reply to them cause I don't have an account. Even though I just replied to them yesterday. And I obviously have an account. Momma sent a letter to HQ, so hopefully they'll fix it.
In the meantime, I'M NOT IGNORING YOU PUFFY AND FAMILY!!! Honest. Momma tried replying a few times today, and it won't work. But she says your thoughts are duly noted, and you're not a pest. And...*ahem* Momma would like to point out that I'm a boy pup, not a girl BOL BOL BOL!!! Although she says I CAN be a drama queen! HEE HEE HEE! Don't worry...Momma says my name is ambiguous. You're not the first folks to call me a girl BOL!!
Also, it's raining like crazy. I don't like the rain.
That is all.

Momma's been thinking a lot lately, pups. Now, I know, normally when Momma starts to think, she gets ideas. And when Momma gets an idea, things usually blow up or spill everywhere. But THIS time, Momma's thinking involves ME!
Actually, it's not ALL about me. Well, EVERYTHING is all about me, but not this time.
See, Momma's really been thinking about getting me a brother or sister. She wants to rescue a pup, cause there's so many out there with no home to stay in, and that makes her sad. But there's so many things she calls pros and cons, and she's just not 100% sure yet. So I'm gonna help her list them all out, and then maybe you pups can chime in!
Ok, cons first. Momma says you should always get the bad stuff outta the way first.
Con 1: Momma says the BIGGEST concern she has is my special diet. Her and Daddy have been super strict about me not getting anything other than my foods. Now, I eat in the living room cause I'm scared of the kitchen floor, so technically another pup could eat out in the kitchen while I eat in the living room. But a new pup couldn't have treats. :( Momma won't let them in the house.
Con 2: The cost. Actually, Momma says this one ranks up there with con 1. Vet care isn't cheap, and us schnauzers need to be groomed regularly, too. She said something about pet insurance, but hasn't looked into it too much. She said she might ask the vet when we go soon.
Con 3: This one is more of a nuisance than a con. We don't have a fenced in yard (and a fence wouldn't really go in our yard the way it's set up) so I go out to potty on a tie out. Momma says she could put another one out there, but she knows we'd get tangled. It would only be annoying first thing in the morning.
Con 4: Momma already has a hard time sleeping with me and Daddy in the bed. She figures another pup would want to sleep there, too. *yawn*
And now the pros. That's the good things!
Pro 1: She's always wanted me to have a brother or sister BFF. I get along well with every dog I've ever met. The rescues she's been looking at around here pretty much all require that I'd have to meet the pup before he or she could live here, and that makes Momma happy, cause if me and a pup DIDN'T get along, she wouldn't bring that pup home.
Pro 2: Momma and Daddy love pups. Lots and lots. We have a loving home, so why shouldn't we save a pup from being unloved and homeless if we can?
OK, she knows the pro list is shorter than the con list, but she says the pro list is more powerful. But the cons are still there, pups. Momma knows you're all going to say "Get another pup!!!!" but when you do, can you say WHY we should get another pup? Thanks, pals!!

I just heard Momma on the phone, pups, and it looks like I'm goin to the vet on Monday to get my shots! Crap. She says she thinks they'll probably schedule a dental, too. Double crap.
Nobody better be sticking ANYTHING in my butt!!!!!!!!!

Holy cow, pups! It sure is windy outside today! Momma let me out and I was trying to do number 2 and the wind kept blowing me over! Momma was giggling cause my beard and eyebrows were all messed up.
It's a good thing I was hooked up to a chain. That way if I got airborne I would be a Fizzy kite!
That might actually be kinda fun!!

Hi pups. Momma got some sad news today. Her friend, Miss Katie, her pup growing up, well...she had to go to the Bridge today. Miss Katie is real sad, which makes Momma super sad. Miss Katie has been a really good friend to Momma, especially when Grammy was sick with the cancer. She had a lot of masses said for Grammy at church, and Momma says she can never repay her for the kindness she showed her when she was so scared. Can you all say a prayer for Miss Katie and her pup, Emma? Thanks pals.
