I was too busy being spoiled yesterday to inform everyone on here that it was my birthday. First, there was Birthday cuddling with Mom, and she sang to me really off key. Actually, Mom sang to me a couple of times yesterday, she can't carry a tune for anything. Then, Mom made me Birthday Eggs, sunny-side up, with curry, my favorite. Then I got a Birthday bath. That actually wasn't that fun, but Mom turned my heat vent on for me to dry after. Then there was Birthday wrestling with Ren, and a Birthday Walk. Then I got Birthday Pork Chops with curry, basil, provolone and parmesan. I even shared those with Ren. Later we had a fire, and people came over for my Birthday to pet me, and I got a Birthday Raw Meaty Pork bone to gnaw on. I ended the day all cuddled up with Mom. It was a good birthday.

 

Mom got me a dog!

Mom and Dad brought me home a dog! It plays, and wrestles with me, and it takes orders really well, and I can walk it! I never thought they'd get me a pet! Wait, what's that you say? I'm a dog? Nonsense.

 

Beginner Novice

We went on a road trip today, to a place like class, but I didn't know any of the other dogs. Mom seemed really nervous even though we've done this before. I must have done something right, though, because after I showed off my skills, I got a whole bowl of bbq pork! Yum. Dad came, too, and tried to take pictures (which was a tad distracting for me, just because it was my dad), but Mom says the pics were dark...

 

Hypothyroid

So I've been having a few different issues this summer, it seemed like one thing after another, so mom took me to Doc Honegger to find some things out. After a blood draw (that was unpleasant) and mom following me around trying to get me to pee in a cup and dumpster diving after one of my "bags," the vet discovered that my total T4 (thyroxine) was low, like way low. Thinking back on all the things that have been going wrong and looking at what a low thyroid can cause, the diagnosis made so much sense; I don't know why we didn't find it sooner. Anyway, now I get bonus ham twice a day (I think mom is probably putting something in it, but I haven't been able to find it yet) and I'm starting to feel more like myself again.

 

Dog Days

So it's been a hot summer, yeah really hot. We picked up our first two legs of our first obedience title, working on our Beginner Novice. Had a scare with some HGE, but we got over that, thankfully. It's been too hot for tracking, and we prefer to work on agility stuff in the AC. It's even been too hot for camping. We went on our Father's day canoe trip back in June, and it was not too hot then, in fact, we got rained on out on the river; not a fan of rain or being wet, nope. Classes at Fort Wayne Obedience Training club will be starting up soon, off of our summer break, so I suppose it's time to get back to work!

 

Sir has a new home!

So, Friday Mom dropped the foster dog off at a new home where I hear he's the only dog and gets another human all to himself. Now I have Mom all to myself! Well, sort of. We seem to have moved to the Huskies' house. Anyway, a vast improvement b/c they're my best dog friends and don't try to eat me. We like to run and run and play and play. The huskies sure do wear me out, though!

 

Every dog has her day!

And today is mine! Mom had the day off work and everything. She made me breakfast, took me for a walk, gave me lots of pettings and scritches, and curled up with me for a nice long nap. It's good to be Dog of the Day!

 

the new dog *pout*

this has not been my week. all week long i've missed mom, then when i get home, there's this *new* dog... he's listed under my "family" now. i'm not happy about this. mom was so preoccupied with him, that she didn't even notice how hard i was trying to do every little thing she asked me the first time. i wanted just to please her and show her that i'm the best dog mom could ask for, and she doesn't need this new dog. she says he's only going to be with us for a little while, but what if he's not? what if he's permanent? please, for my sake, everyone who reads this diary entry, tell everyone about his adoption page and get him out of my house!

 

mock show

so class last night was different... i sat in a soft crate (that would never hold me if i really wanted out of it) and waited patiently until mom got me out. then we went up to the class ring, but we were the only dog. that was weird. mom looked way too serious, then the instructor said something to her about "no treats." i didn't really believe it though, b/c mom's never asked me to do anything at all w/out treats. we went into the class area and it was pretty basic stuff, healing, stand for exam, figure 8 (still w/out other dogs, usually there are dogs that i weave around for that), more healing, but w/out a leash. i kept my eyes fixated on mom's mouth, waiting for her to spit a treat at me, but nothing. what a gyp! finally, about halfway through it all, when the teacher was down at the other end not looking, she dropped one out of her mouth. after we got out of the ring, i got a whole cheese stick! that was huge.

anyway, when we got home, mom seemed to be very happy w/ me. we shared a whole chicken together for dinner, but mom didn't share her porter w/ me. i didn't care, though, i was eating chicken.

 

Class tonight

well i learned some new stuff tonight! and even relearned some stuff i learned before, but forgot i learned... target... man, when i remembered what 'target' was and attached it to those little red circles instead of what we used, like, more than a year ago.... i just started smacking that thing, and every time mom gave me a treat! (mmmm, beef jerky...) we did some off-lease healing (which wasn't a problem, that leash is really just for show these days). and we jumped over this broad ramp thingy on the ground. i did recalls and stays like a champ, like always. mom doesn't always give me a treat though. when i do a recall and come front, sometime i get a treat and sometimes i don't. i wish i could figure out what makes the difference... i guess i'll just try harder.
