Hi pals! I know it's been forever since I barked but Mom is addicted to the Book of Faces now! We deserve so much more time on Dogster but just so our pals know we read and look at all your entries we just don't comment as much!
Mom has gotten involved in dog rescue and dog transport since being on the book of faces. She says it's her "calling". Have no idea what she is talking about because I call her all the time and she ignores me!
Mom started seeing so many dogs that are abandoned and put in shelters and PTS daily she felt she needed to do what she could to help. Mom can't go to a shelter without having a break down but she networks on computer and helps rescue groups.
Well, let me bark about our foster, Lily, part yorkie part shih tzu. My Daddy found her walking down a road not far from home on a rainy day. He stopped and she came right to him, she was dirty, full of ticks and limping. Well after a long story we found out her femur in her hip was completely broken and no telling how long she had been walking around that way :(
Well Mom had to do a fundraiser on the book of faces to help pay for her surgery because she said the foster dogs are breaking her! So many of our dogster pals donated money and paid for her surgery. Mom was so overwhelmed how kind people were to a dog they never met! A big THANK YOU again to those people, and you all know who you are!
Well Mom had to find her a home because for some reason she didn't like me! Can you believe that???? I'm the pack leader! She would follow me around and bark at me all the time and try to push me away from MOM. I put up with it for a few weeks and then one day I snapped! Mom broke us up but knew she had to find Lily a home...fast! A wonderful pal of ours that is on Dogster got in contact with us and said her Mom wanted to adopt her. They live about 1.5 hours from us! Mom took Lily for a visit and it was a perfect match. Lily is so loved and has 2 new fursisters. They are so nice and still send pictures and updates on Lily! We are happy she has a new home!
Now, the other foster is Chloe, a rat/jr terrier mix. We got her in June when she was 10 weeks old. She is now about 6 mths. Mom was at Tractor & Supply one night and a teenage boy was up front trying to get people to take these 2 puppies he had left. Mom ignored him at first but realized he was desperate and said he had to get "rid" of them that night. MOm and another nice lady took the last 2 home. Mom was scared to walk in with her cause Daddy had no idea, but you know Daddy, he is a softy when it comes to us pups! Chloe was covered in fleas but pretty healthy. Mom has been trying to adopt her out but had no luck! Mom can't believe that no one wants a cute puppy. Chloe loves playing with my pack and is hyper but very sweet...just being a normal puppy! She needs a home with at least one other young pup to play with her. Mom will post pictures of her and a picture of Lily. If anyone knows of anyone interested in adopting Chloe they can send her a message and Mom will send them the application. It's getting so hard because the longer Chloe is here, the more attached we are and we already feel she is part of the family, but Mom says trying to afford 5 dogs is just too much and Chloe deserves a family that loves her and can spend time with her.
Mom says fostering is very hard. When she had to leave Lily that day, she said it was one of the hardest things she had done but she knew it was a perfect, loving home. Mom says she has to harden up a little bit. Mom would like to do "short term" fosters from now on if she can.
Oh, Mom won a ticket to BarkWorld that will be in ATL at the end of October. THANK YOU SO MUCH DOGSTER!!!!! Me and Mom went last year and had a pawsome time but this year Mom has decided to take either Petey or Molly. I'm ok with that cause I can spend more time with my Daddy :)
Mom had told Petey & Molly to be on their best behavior so she can decide which one to take!LOL Hopefully they will get to meet more Dogster pups!
Well have a great week pals and bark at you later!

Mom just spent 30 mins (at work) typing out the longest diary ever for me and all of a sudden it took us back to our account page. Mom is so so so mad right now! She is going to try and remember everything she typed and try again! Wow, Mom's blood pressure just went real high!!!!

Wow, once Mom started me going to a groomer it seems like she takes me every day! I thought I got out of it this past Saturday cause they took Scooter and he came back shaved! He was starting to look like a baby bear and he gets furry hot with all that fur. He had to stay there all day cause she was furry busy and "fit" him in that day.
Well yesfurday I thought all was good cause Momma was at work but Daddy actually grabbed me up and took me to the groomer...I thought Daddy was on my side! Well Momma gave him furry strict instructions on how to groom me. Cut the face and neck short but keep the sides long, only trim them. Momma has been letting my sides grow long for over 2 years. I only stayed long enough for the groom cause they give orders that I can't stay there, as soon as they are finished Daddy has to come get me, so they always do me first.
Well Daddy picked me up and called momma for the report! He "then" told her that he had the groomer cut an inch or more from my sides! Momma was not happy and Daddy said you wanted it trimmed and Momma said a trim is like a quarter of an inch! Me and Daddy like the short hair cause I look more like a boy...that long hair is too girly! Well Daddy said he would send momma a picture at work and did but guess what? I was sitting down so she could only see my face and couldnt tell about the sides...we kind of tricked momma..hehehe
Momma couldnt get home from work fast enough. I was hiding but she found me and actually she said it wasnt as bad as she was thinking. It looks nice but she still didnt want it that short. IT WILL GROW BACK MOMMA!!!
Well have a great weekend and try to stay away from the groomers, if you can. Oh, of course Mom will post pictures of the new haircut!

Well you all know Mom kind of forgot my barkday on the day of my barkday & Daddy was out of town so we celebrated it this weekend. Mom baked me a cake (she will post pics later) and I got to go to Petsmart with out the other furs and I picked out 2 toys! I'm very picky about toys. I only like small, little stuffies that fit in my tiny mouth! There is a line that kong makes and I have about 3 of each one!BOL So, I picked out another frog from Kong and a carrot. The carrot was a little bigger than normal but fits in my mouth good!
Yesfurday a package arrive and it had a blankie and quilt that Ms. Nancy (Dayzee & Cyrus's mom) made. I claimed those as part of my barkday presents!BOL They are furry soft and pretty!
All my dogster pals are always the best. I received so many gifts, comments, pawmails and pictures, it's hard for mom to send out a thank you to each one so we hope thanking you all in this diary will be good and you all know how special you are to us! So here it goes:

Yes, this is true. I'm sitting at home, by myself (well if you want to count my fursibs, I'm not alone) all sad because this morning I woke up extra early and waited for momma & daddy to wake up. Well they did and I kept dancing around momma and she finally gave me my morning pill with turkey but I was expecting more...why you ask...because it's my 6th BARKDAY MOMMA!!!!!
Can you believe they both forgot? Daddy is always staying on mom, so she doesnt forget to do things for me...like, Did you give Buddy his medicine, Did you clean Buddy's ears, Did you brush Buddy's hair, Did you take Buddy for a ride, Did Buddy eat his dinner, Did you scratch Buddy's butt (oh that's a little TMI) but you get the idea. Daddy is always worried about me!
To make maters worse, Daddy left with the suitcase this morning which means he wont be home tonight. :(
This is an outrage, I think they will both get the silent treatment. Also, Mom was off work all day yesfurday and had plenty of time to bake MY cake and buy MY gifts...but no, she sat on her butt all day!
Well, got to go and sulk some more. Oh but I do want to thank all my pals that didnt forget about me and sent me lots of nice gifts and messages. See Petey's(not my furbro) mom wished me a happy bday on the book of faces this morning and that's how mom found out. If she wouldnt spend so much time in that place she might remember the most important day of the year!!!
Buddy's Mom here - I feel terrible my little Buddy and Momma & Daddy will make it up to you. Momma will take you for a ride(his favorite thing to do) tonight and I promise when daddy comes back you will have your cake and toys!
Woof Woof, Buddy (one year older and one day more mad at the pawrents)

Hi pups! Well I broke out in hives Saturday and mom has no idea what did it. She loaded me up on benadryl and the cream but I was pretty uncomfortable all weekend. I didnt even sleep good Sunday night so off to the vet on Monday. Momma decided to take me to the vet and then come back and work from home. We love when she does that!
Well this time the vet gave me a shot..grrrrr....and a creme rinse to use and I have to take a bath with it once a week...grrrrrrrrr. He also gave me Hydroxyzine to take at home and it was time for my heartworm pills so we got Trifexis, that has heartworm and fleas pill in one. He said that maybe Petey brought a flea to our house and one got me and since I'm so allergic to them, it's like a 100 biting me. It was time to take my flea pill again so if it was a flea the pill probably didnt work cause mom was a few days late giving it to me...grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr (lots of grrrr's in this diary).
He also told mom "again" that if we cant get it under control I might have to do the hypoallergenic diet for dogs. Mom explained "again" she cooks for us but he said it would be our last option and if I get hungry enough I'll eat...that dogs wont starve themselves but crazy cats will!!!! Well Mom, I might be the first dog to starve to death!!!! He did say that it's probably environmental and not food, so keep paws crossed it is. Since I dont do well with steroids there's not a lot of options to help me. The shot was steroids but he cut it way back and guess what, it helped me and I didnt do all that panting like last time. I also had the bath and mom put the creme rinse on me. He also wants me to try fish oil...did you pups know fish made oil????BOLBOLBOL
Oh guess what???? I lost 1 pound!!!!! So now I'm down to 16.9. Mom was so happy cause she had been cutting back on my food. We've just got to start getting more exercise!
I get a little jealous of Petey cause he wants all of momma's time. She holds him all the time. I can tell mom is trying to be fair to all of us and spend time with us. Mom keeps telling all of us that we dont like laying in her lap more than 2 minutes and if we did she would hold us. He seems needy to me, I've still got a few things to teach him!
Mom couldnt wait to get home from work today and she was giving us lots of kisses and then she told us she was sad cause my pal from my Top Terrier group, Walker, went to the bridge yesterday. He was pretty old, 15! Also, Abby from TN went to the bridge today and she was 13! There are other pals too that have crossed but just too painful to talk about! We send out lots of ((((((HUGS))))))) and lots of love to these families.
Well we love all our pals and hope everypup's New Year has started out fun and lots of Meatz!!!!!

Hi pups. Mom finally made Petey offical and made him a dogster page. His id is 1224163. We hope all our pals will make him your pal! He's a sweet little thing but I've got to teach him a few things and the house rules, since I run the house!BOL
Mom wants to write him a diary but cant think of what to call his diary. She wants something to go with his name and starts with a P. So if you pups have any pawsome ideas let us know.
We hope you all got lots of gifts and treats for Christmas. It was great around here, but can you believe mom took me to the groomers today????? The day after Christmas and this was the best thing she could find for us to do. We went to a new groomer and she was furry nice and said I was a good boy and mom liked her. My furbro, Scooter goes on Thursday to get shaved...he looks like a baby bear right now.BOL
Well sorry this is short but the Morris pack is pretty busy now, with four dogs around here. Mom said she doesnt know how she is going to keep up with 4 pups on here!BOL
Hey....Petey.....No.....we do our privacy pwease outside....not on Mom's rug......Oh bey...got to go and teach this pup a few things!!
Bark at you later!

Hi pups, sorry it took so long to bark this but my typist was busy typing my fursibs diaries and loading pics. She hasnt learned yet that I should always come first!
As you all know from the pics I posted me and momma went to Atlanta this past Friday to attend Barkworld.
On Friday night the hotel we stayed at (Hotel Indigo) had a "tweet" cocktail pawty for Barkworld. The hotel was really neat...very dog friendly, right across the street from Fox theatre, the rooms had hardwood floors and were decorated very "boutique/bungalow" like. Outside they had a nice area set up for us pups, with treats and water bowls, with ice water and little chairs for us.
This is where I got to meet my dogster pal "Pepper the Pom" and our new pal Jasmine. Jasmine and her mom gave us the free ticket to Barkworld...her mom blogs about Jasmine (thank you guys again!) Pepper's mom made all of us matching bandanas with our names on them, they were so pretty...(thank you).
We stayed up late visiting with lots of pups and guess who we met that night.....yep....that's right....TED from Dogster!
He was so nice and down to earth. He sure liked me and I got to sit in his lap!
The next day me and mom met Pepper at the Barkworld hotel and mom decided to put me in the dog day care...ughhhhh.....
I've never done day care before but it was on the same level as the show and right outside the door on the terrace, so mom could check on me as often as she wanted (and believe me she did). I was a little nervous and wouldnt leave the fence and kept my head looking for mom the entire time. I think mom saw this thru the windows and she wouldnt let me stay out there no more than 30 mins at a time. Finally her and Pepper came and broke me out (well they just let me leave) and we went and got Peppers BF, Baron and went across the street to a nice park. Us pups got to stretch our legs! We then went back to Pepper and Barons room and had a barkday pawty for Baron...he was 4 years old and such a nice and handsome pup! He even shared his barkday cake with me and sent some home to my fursibs!
After the pawty we went back down and it was time for Victoria Stilwell...well I wasnt allowed in the meeting rooms but I was furry tired and mom didnt want to put me back in daycare so she snuck me in and hid me under the table, under the table cloth. I was so tired I didnt make a sound...not even when the video that Victoria was showing had barking dogs. Mom really enjoyed her but I'm a little worried cause that Victoria is strict and I hope mom doesnt get any ideas.BOL
After that me and mom had to leave and drive back home. Pepper got to stay and meet Victoria and the next day she got to see Jasmine's presentation and go to a dog wedding. Pepper looked so pretty in her red dress her mom made her, it was beautiful!
Me and mom had the bestest time evefur and hope to go back next year. Meeting Pepper was so much fun, she actually liked me and we got along great! Pawrents just worry too much, us dogs know how to handle ourselves!BOL We hope to get to see Pepper again soon and maybe even our pal Jasmine. She lives much further but you nevfur know!
We hope next year more of our Dogster pals get to go. There were pups from evefur where! Bark at you later!

That's right, as most of you know...me and Momma are going to Atlanta on Friday to attend Barkworld and we get to meet our great pals, Pepper, Baron & Jasmine! We are furry excited...well Mom is...me...not too sure.
You know how things always seem to go wrong...well my Momma was furry sick today..she had to leave work early (yeah Mom!) and come home cause she was throwing up...not sure but she thinks she caught a bug....bugs arent so bad...I like to eat them too, but Momma must of eaten a bad bug!
Yesfurday, Momma & Daddy were taking the huge rug out of the living room and hanging it on our deck (some pup peed on it..not me *wink wink*) so Mom was trying that nature's miracle stuff on it..well Daddy was trying to do it all by himself and didnt see me and knocked me down the stairs off the deck! Mom saw it and I went rolling...of course momma was screaming at Daddy and Daddy was furry upset cause you know I'm his little prince! Well mom checked me out and I broke a nail and it was bleeding (I played it up real good...hehehe). Well mom thought that was it but that night she saw me limping on the other back leg. Well mom checked it out and you all know about my allergies, well between my pads were very red and swollen so mom is not sure if that was making me limp. She doctored me all up but I was still limping a little today...but not all the time (no momma I'm not tricking you for more attention). Mom did start 1/2 pill of the steriods back up since my allergies are so bad, but she doesnt want me going to Atlanta all bloated from them. Mom is determined that we go on this trip but of course she will make sure I'm ok before we do. I've never been on a trip like this and never been around that many dogs and people...mom hopes I do ok, but she's not going to let me get stressed out. Mom keeps telling me we will have lots of fun...we even get to have a barkday pawty for Baron when we are there..Pepper's mom has him a cake! Yummy!
My pal Zaidie was barking in his diary today how his mom likes to match all his stuff...well my mom does too but she went overboard this time! She bought a cameo green shirt for her to wear on Friday to match my cameo harness and our matching bandanas that Pepper's Mom made us is green! Oh bey! She is taking it a little too far!
Oh to make this even more stressful for me, I had a groomers appt for Wed but now Daddy has to go out of town and cant take me till Thursday morning...the same day I leave for Atlanta...I will be one tired pup by the time I get to ATL.
Mom will go to ATL on Wed because she already has to be there for a work show...so she will change to the dog friendly hotel on Thursday night and Daddy is driving me over to meet her, so me and Momma get to stay in this nice dog friendly hotel...just me and momma! Daddy will drive back home and take care of my furbro's!
Well got to go make sure mom packs all my treats, blankie, favorite toy, harness, leash, bed...wow I think I need my own suitcase! I'll bark all about it and post pics when we return!
