Arrival Story:
Isobel's mom was found wandering the streets pregnant and hungry by an employee of a local doggie daycare center who took her in and kept her until she had her litter of nine beautiful babies. A friend told us about the blessed event so we went by and picked the first girl we saw. A few weeks later Isobel came home with us and it's been blissful chaos ever since.

Bio:
Isobel has grown up to be quite the responsible adult; she is very protective of her kitty - especially with a rambunctious puppy around - and a stickler for keeping to her schedule. While she enjoys her daily crazy laps around the back yard, she is more likely to be found relaxing in her chair, watching the news with her dad. Smellybelly still has the happiest soul of any creature, human, canine, feline, etc., I've ever met. She brings joy to our lives and we're so delighted to have her with us!

I now weigh a full 100 pounds more than what mom told dad I would weigh when fully grown - 131 pounds. oh the irony - I'M MASSIVE. It all started with our biannual allergy-related visit to Dr. Maxwell - I'd been spending far too much of my free time licking my itchy right paw - so much, in fact, that I'd opened up a raw, infected spot on my toe. So off to the vet we went - i knew there was trouble when, after my initial weigh-in, Lea, the nice vet helper lady, went back to get Bonnie, other nice vet helper lady, and they both stood behind the counter pointing at me. Mom didn't believe them when they told her my weight and made me get on the scale again. Needless to say, after a week's worth of horse-sized antibiotics, allergy pills and a bottle of Genesis topical spray, my toe is looking great and i'm on a diet. Yoshimi, Kiddo and I have been busy pouring over our copy of the Household Rules and By-laws, paying special attention to section #43, paragraph 6, which states, "... any co-signee whose weight and/or IQ is within 10 pounds or 10 points of the weight and/or IQ of the lighter (physically and intellectually) of the parties previously named as the mom or the dad (the basis for which of the two shall be used as the standard for comparison being the one who, at the time of judgement, has overindulged less in PBR and cheesy goldfish crackers and more in Project Runway), shall be required to obtain part-time employment and contribute no less than 40% of the wages earned to the GNP of the household ..." Yoshimi says not to worry - she surpassed the IQ requirement long ago and nobody made her get a job. I'm hungry.

ooooohhhh my, it's been a long time since i've written...so much has happened, job changes, vacations, new friends, a bat in the house (yikes! ed.) and yet, all of this pales in comparison to our newest furniture acquisition...a KING sized bed! Finally, enough room for not only kiddo and me but mom AND dad as well, how novel! Even yoshimi can fit should she decide to descend from her LAZ-E-CAT. watching dad and his buddy get the mattress in the house was almost as good as sleeping on it for the first time. our house is old and apparently dogs were smaller in the thirties, so they didn't build staircases big enough to accommodate king sized beds. dad had to lean out over the balcony and pull the mattress up while rick pushed from the ground. yoshimi had already dialed the 9 and a 1 on the phone and was poised to dial the other 1 should the need arise. kiddo and i helped by barking. after a few tense moments and many, many naughty words, our bed was in place. mom came home from work and immediately began to put the new sheets on. kiddo and i helped by standing on the bed and barking while she tried to make it. then, finally exhausted from a long afternoon of helping, the kid and i collapsed and slept well beyond our normal wakeup time of 5 a.m. the next morning.

i want to thank all the doggies who posted on the doggie nutrition forums for finally getting my mom to buy us good food. it all started when she was making our dinner a few weeks ago and saw a stray nugget of Beneful languishing in a puddle of water, leaking red dye onto the counter. funny, she thought, that can't be good for my babies, the lights of my life, my raison de rising at 5 in the morning. naturally the first place she went for information is dogster and now we get Canidae. no more eye boogers in the morning and our poops are to die for: firm and far between. Even though our wonderful vet said Beneful was just fine, mom has been converted into a rabid ingredient label reader: Huzzah for Chicken Meal, Turkey Meal, Herring Meal, Brown Rice and Flax Seed; be gone from our lives Ground Yellow Corn and Chicken by-product meal! Canidae biscuits even smell good to the humans - dad thinks maybe he and mom should eat this stuff too. I'll have to keep my eye on the treat jar - GET YOUR OWN COOKIE, BIPED!
