My new food has been recalled

March 19th 2013 3:34 pm

So the food I just started on got recalled. The bag I just finished eating in fact. Skin mom is pretty upset. All the foods I like. She tried calling the company but was on hold forever. She left a message for them to call, they didn't call us back. She emailed them, no return emails yet. That alone is making her mad.

So we are going back to Blue Buffalo. Skin mom has decided the bad things she read about are something called spam. The company denied the rumors and I have never been sick on it. I really like it in fact. Now skin mom is worried I will get sick. It can take some days to get sick from the bad food I ate so she is going to be watching me like a hawk.

Today is the first day of Spring. Skin dad took me for a long walk. It was still cold but it was a great walk. When we got home Teddy, my skin dad's son and my skin grandson were here. So we went for another long walk. My skin mom says a tired Hoss is a good Hoss.

It was a really long walk for tubby Teddy. When we got back to the van skin dad gave us both water and Teddy gulped it all down. When we got home he drank a bunch more water and then pukes on skin Moms nice clean floor. Skin mom thanked Teddy for not throwing up on her carpet.

I am exhausted. But in a good way. I took a nap with Xena, my fur cat friend. I guess I am being what skin mom likes, a good tired dog. And the bite mark on my leg is almost gone.

 

Attack by the Little Dog

Ok, so we were walking down by the river. I love walking there but skin mom gets upset since so many people don't leash their dogs.

But it was fun until. This little tiny dog came running up and barking at me. It started biting my ankles. Ouch. Skin mom told me sit and stay and I did, because I listen when she tells me to do that. She gives me petting and treats when I mind. The little dog kept darting in and trying to bite my ankles. What's up with that? If I wanted to I could shut him up with one little snap. Skin mom told the other dog to scat.

I could see the owner of the little dog running up. Why was she so far away from her little dog. I could tell she wanted to catch the little dog so I put my big paw out and held the tiny dog down. Well for pete's sake. The dog started to make noise like I was killing it or something and the other woman started to scream!

Your dog is killing my dog, she screamed. I wasn't. I was barely putting any pressure on this little dog. Not even as much as the cat.

The lady started to scream at my skin mom about me. Skin mom calmly said, this is the difference between a well trained dog under control and a dog who has had no training like your dog. You are lucky my dog is trained and didn't kill your dog and why were you letting your dog run loose. And she said, your dog has better have had it's shots because she drew blood on my dog.

The woman refused to give her name and mom brought me home and cleaned out my bite. It isn't bad. I hardly felt it. And skin mom gave me treats and told me what a good big boy I was. And I am.

I am glad that little dog met me instead of some of the other dogs it could have met. I hope it gets training like I got so it doesn't take on more then it can chew in the future. Could have been a tragedy.

 

Happy St. Patrick's Day

Now we have a Lake

We got a big snow storm last week. Yesterday it was 60 degrees! Now I have a lake in our side yard. Personally I don't care much for water but I am hoping some ducks land as I like the chase them and watch them fly off.

I am on a new food. It is called Innova. So far I like but the skin folks say it is expensive. I am worth it. It is too soon to see if it agrees with me they say but I say it does, it tastes good.

I went on a big walk at our State park with Teddy, my skin parents son. He is a tubby little white dog. I like Teddy but he doesn't want to play with me. We get along great when we walk together but when I try to play boxer style he growls. I bet he wouldn't be so tubby if he would play with me.

The skin folks say when the weather gets better and it isn't so muddy they will bring me to daycare where there are dogs who like to play. I hope it is soon. It has been a long winter. But I can tell Spring is coming. I saw some of skin mom's flowers coming up. The wind is warmer on my fur. Soon we will be able to take longer walks.

My skin mom bought me a vest that has 2 pockets for carrying my own water bottles. I look styling in it as usual.

 

Today Is my Birthday

To be honest we don't know for sure the day I was born. But this is real close because we know how old I am for sure. I went and played in the snow to show I was still frisky enough to do it. I am after all 3. I got treats and a toy. It was a good day. Thanks you fellow dogsters for best the wishes.

 

What a drag

I am less then thrilled with this white stuff. 2 days ago it had all melted. Then it rained. The mud felt great between my toes. Went to sleep and woke up, the darn stuffs back and it is blowing so hard it makes my eyeballs hurt. Heck with this, I'm going back to bed.

 

The Snow is getting on my nerves

The yard just gets clear of snow and boom, it snows again. Although it was kind of fun at first I really don't like it. When it was deep it was hard to get through and I must admit, although I would never tell the skin folks, I get cold paws. Heck when it was really deep I got cold privates!

Now yesterday it was snowing again but blowing really hard. I went for a couple of walks but it was agreeable to me to turn back when the skin dad said to. I had on my heavy coat and my fleece neck and head warmer and I was still cold. I almost can't remember what the taste of grass is like

I had a lazy day yesterday. Just mostly slept and didn't even play with the cat much. I chewed on my deer antler. Oh it's a dogs life.

My skin mom took me out to go do my business yesterday. She had hurt her shoulder and neck at work so hasn't been walking me much. I forgot about her shoulder and bolted off after a deer. I couldn't help myself, come around a corner and boom, there they are. Just forgot myself. So now skin mom is back to using the heating pad and tells me I have to go back on the short leash and collars and work on my training again. I do feel bad as she had water coming out of her eyes and I know she was hurting.

Well, it looks like it isn't snowing today and the skin folks are getting dressed so I guess I will get ready to go in the van. I love the van. I love to ride in the car.

 

Dear God

Dear God: Here is a list of
just some of the things I must remember
to be a good Dog:

1. I will not eat the cat's food before she eats it or after she throws it up.

2. I will not roll on dead seagulls, fish,
crabs, etc., just because I like the way they smell.
3. The Litter Box is not a cookie jar.
4. The sofa is not a 'face towel'.
5. The garbage collector is not stealing our stuff.
6. I will not play tug-of-war with Dad's
underwear when he's on the toilet.
7. Sticking my nose into someone's
crotch is an unacceptable way of saying 'hello'.
8. I don't need to suddenly stand
straight up when I'm under the coffee table.
9. I must shake the rainwater out of my fur before
entering the house - not after.
10. I will not come in from outside,
and immediately drag my butt across the carpet.
11. I will not sit in the middle of the living
room, and lick my crotch.
12. The cat is not a 'squeaky toy',
so when I play with him and he makes that noise,
it's usually not a good thing.

P.S. Dear God:
When I get to Heaven,
May I have my testicles back?

 

Thanks for making my dairy a daily pick.

Woof, today is going to be a great day. My leg is all back to normal, as far as the skin mom can tell and I my dairy was today's pick. That is just great. I could tell as soon as I woke up it was going to be a good day.

We had a quiet night. The insane cat didn't wake us up at 6 am by knocking things off of the dresser and meowing loudly. It was blissful. When skin Mom got up at 7:30, wow, she never gets to sleep that late, she realized the cat had slipped into the back laundry room and spent the night in there. He He. Xena was all cold and whiny, "Oh Oh, how could you leave me out there........... Purrrrr Purrrrr whine whine".

Oh that cat. She is the one who is always trying to sneak out the door, serves her right if you ask me. I know a nice warm house when I see one. Remember Xena, you were a stray also, skinny, starving and living outside in the rain and snow. What is so exciting about the back porch and basement? Dumb cat. Now get over here and I will let you lay next to me until you warm up.

Today skin dad says we are going to Petsmart because I am out of Zukes treats which they use for training and Xena's raw food. Then! We are going for a good walk. Someplace I have never been. I am so excited by back end just starts wiggling on it's own.

Yup, It is going to be a great day.

 

Restricted activity

That's what skin Mom says I am on. How to restrict a boxers activity? I went cross country hiking with the skin Dad yesterday. We had a great walk. The snow was crusty over and I kept breaking through to the soft stuff below. Well once when that happened I twisted my shoulder wrong and hurt it. Heck, it doesn't hurt that bad as long as I don't step all the way down on it but because of that I am on restricted activity until my limp goes away. BORING.

Try to chase the cat, mom grabs me and tells me to settle down. Try to do the zoomies on the ice, mom stops me. Try to take off after a deer, nope, no go. Sigh. Now my walks are short and on pavement. If my leg isn't better I have to go to the lady who attempted, didn't succeed, to clip my nails and who checks me over once a year. She is nice though.

I have a full gong and 3 toys to choose from to play with. I don't want to lay quietly here and play with my toys. I want to chase the cat or wrestle with the skin son when he comes over. I want to walk in the woods. Sheesh, what do they think I am, a baby!
