Mathias' diatribes


Goodbye dogster!

Hello!

We were really sad to learn that Dogster's community section, where we've kept our blogs for a long time (Mathias, who is now 4 years old, started his Dogster page at 3 months old) is closing down. Now, as dogs, we can only speculate as to the reasons. Dogster was a place where we could express ourselves to like-minded doggies (and their humans), and that was an important part of our dog-lives.

Hugely important events, such as the adoption of Aullido and Mathias, as well as devastating ones, like the passing of Aullido and Bela, and Talluhah's near-death experiences, were much better when shared with our friends, who gave us tremendous support and were always there to share our joy and ease our burdens.

We now "scramble" to collect contact information for our friends, knowing that friendships will endure and we will keep in touch. So let's leave it at that; social networks may come and go, but friendships will last, so let this be a "see you over there", rather than a "goodbye"!. Be seeing you!

P.S. We'll still check our paw mail in the coming weeks, so if you'd like to stay in touch with us, let us know so we can share contact details.

Visitors!

Hey all! We've been having a lot of fun this winter, with a lot of snow, which is great exercise for me, chasing the ball when I sink almost to my head at every step is challenging but very fun.

Also, part of my humans' family is visiting us here, so I've been very busy being cute but also protective of the new humans who arrived. I'm responsible for them until they leave in a few days. Add to that my usual pair of humans and Tallulah and you can see I've had my paws full lately! But this comes with great rewards, such as being cuddled and petted by more humans, and a lot more food leftovers for me to eat. At least I didn't overeat and throw up like I did last year! I learned my lesson on that one...

Anyway, since it's Christmas I thought I'd drop by to leave season's greetings and my best wishes for a happy and healthy new year.

Be seeing you!

 

The Pit

Hello all! So here we are having a nice summer, though hot days are ahead, and those are not so good for us doggies.

We were having a walk the other day when I got ahold of a peach! I was just nibbling on it, so my humans decided to let me have it for a moment. Then when they came to take it from me, I decided "hey, no, it's MY peach" and just swallowed it. That'll teach them!

The humans started panicking and talking a lot, and I learned from their discussion that swallowing an entire peach was not a good idea. Mainly because they have a hard "pit" inside them, that can't be digested and can be very dangerous if lodged in a doggie's intestine.

So they started talking about vomiting and stuff. They called someone on the phone, and gave me some nasty-tasting liquid, which I think was supposed to make me throw up. But hey, when I do throw up they're usually not too happy, so why are they doing it on purpose this time? Anyway, I was a good doggie and held my vomit!

For some strange reason, this prompted mom taking me into a cab and off to an emergency veterinary hospital, where she explained the situation. A vet took me inside, and they poked something into my eye, which made me feel nauseous beyond my ability to control. So I puked and out came the peach, pit and all! Mom was relieved as the vet triumphantly showed her the ejected pit. She was very happy because, she said, if the pit hadn't come out, I would have needed surgery to remove it. Due to my size, the vets said, I would have been unable to pass the pit.

I wonder if being as big as Tallulah would have made this a non-issue, since bigger intestines may mean I could have passed the pit. However, it's not so easy for her to find a taxi, so that's an advantage a smaller dog like me can have!

Have fun and see you soon!
