Grandma's here!

Hey everyone, you are simply not going to believe this. Now I get to live at both my old apartment and at my new house, and I am almost never alone! My grandma moved here from Pennsylvania and she is living in my apartment. In the morning I go there to stay with her and then Mom picks me up at lunch time and takes me home. My grandma is really old and I have to be careful not to hurt her. She's very nice to me, though, and says sweet things and feeds me pretzels. Now I have my grandma and I don't have to miss my apartment, too!

I love my new house! I can almost catch the squirrels in the back yard if I get real quiet and they don't see me before I start running after them. And Stitch--the next door Doberman--and I are buddies now. I can run and jump at him and just bounce off him and keep running. I run past him so fast he doesn't even know what happened. Some day his dad is going to let him off his leash when I come over to play so we can run all over the back yard. Mom says I better look out when that happens!

I am ok with the basement now. I just had to get used to the smell. It is smelling more like us now. I run down there every time mom does. One day she screamed because she saw something running around in the basement and thought it was a r-a-t. It was just me! Ha, ha, ha!

I found the candy dish the other day when mom left, and I was real neat about unwrapping the red candies before eating them. I only got carried away with a few of them and ripped the wrappers. I wonder if that is why mom put the dish out of my reach after that. I would be more careful if that is what she wants.

Grandma got sick one day I was there, and while she sat on the edge of the bed I put my paw on her arm to comfort her. She told mom and mom kept telling me what a good girl I am. I felt bad grandma was sick, so I only tried to make her feel better. I am glad it was the right thing to do.

Mom said she has to go paint some more now, so she can't help me with my diary right now.
Woof, woof!!

 

Didn't go to the park--yet

I'm back at Grandma's house today, but all I want to do is go to the park. I don't know why no one is taking me to the park. I think I am very clear about what I want. Now. I will ask my mom when she picks me up to take me to the park. Now.

 

New friends and a birthday!

I had the bestest time of my life on Sunday. There are 2 dogs who run around the neighborhood who are bigger than me, but mom says they are still puppies. They come in my yard a lot and I see them through the gate. Well, guess who forgot to latch the gate when the garbage got taken to the curb on Sunday? It wasn't me, but I know how to take advantage of a situation. I went on out and ran, ran, ran with the "puppies." I ran for a very long time. I ran all over the place. I ran places I had never been before. It was so much fun!
Mom was out driving in the car when I came home and she got out of the car and ran through yards and grabbed me up and ran back to the car and drove home. Sometimes I really don't understand the things she does. Then she just sat there and held me and cried. I don't know why. I was having so much fun, and I tried to tell her I had new friends and I wanted to go back out to play with them some more, but she just carried me in the house and wouldn't let me back out. She said they would have to come in the fence to play with me from now on.

Well, you will never guess what happened the next day... my new "puppy" friends came over and tried to break me out. They grabbed the gate with their teeth and kept yanking on it to try to get me out, but it didn't work. Maybe they will come back and try again.

My big brother Andrew had a birthday and that is always fun. Andrew and my other big brother Adam and my grandma and two of my other good friends all came over and we ate ice cream cake. Yumm! Then I took turns sitting on everyone's laps and getting pet. It was almost as good as me having a birthday, except they all went out to eat without me and I didn't get any presents. So I guess maybe it wasn't quite as good. But it was still tons of fun and I want to do it again.

Woof!

 

My birthday weekend

I am so excited (except for the bath part!) This is my official "birthday weekend!!" and it starts tonight.

I have been going once a week to help Mom and Jeff teach dance to some teens and adults about an hour drive away. They just love me :) and tonight we are taking birthday cake and candles and we are going to have a party! I just love parties. I hope I get ice cream too. I really love ice cream. And they all know I love bling bling, so maybe I will get presents even though Mom had to go and tell them not to bring any.

This teaching dance thing is a blast! I run up and down the line of dancers and leap up in the air to show them how to dance. Sometimes I even have to bark to get them to do it right. They smile and pet me a lot. Then I run over to mom and stand up on my back legs so she can take my hand paws and dance with me. She picks me up and dances with me and I like that too. I am absolutely exhausted by the time we are done, what with all that running and supervising and being adorable. That's hard work. But I get to sleep on the ride home.

I can hardly wait to find out what else we are doing this weekend for my birthday on Sunday!

 

Birthday weekend fun

Wow, what a great birthday weekend. It started on Friday when I went to help teach dance. We had cake and everyone sang to me and I got a huge pig ear. I danced and ate all my pig ear.

Then I got to have cake again for breakfast on Saturday, and Mom took me shopping. We went to a fancy downtown dog store and I got 2 bling and a free treat. Then we went to Petsmart and I got 2 more bling but no treat. All day Mom sang to me about my birthday and I was so excited!

Then on my actual birthday on Sunday I had cake again for breakfast and hot dogs for lunch and pizza for dinner!!! I went to get the pizza with mom and when she said it was for me too, I got so excited I shook all over and wagged my tail as fast as it would go. We had ice cream for desert cause the cake was all gone. I know, because I got to lick the icing off the bottom of the plate.

Birthdays are really great, but I want a cheeseburger now. I thought this was just the start of something new, like not having to stay in my crate anymore during the day. I thought I was going to get to eat like this every day. You know, something that happens now that I am 3. I must admit that I am a bit disappointed. Guess I will have to stick with my grandma to get the toast every morning. Things could be worse. (I wonder when I will have another birthday....)

 

My poor eye

Mom said I have a sick eye and that's why she took me to the vet. The vet said I have conjunctivitis. It was really itching, so I kept wiping it with my leg and cleaning my leg. I thought that was a smart thing to do, being the smart Schnauzer that I am. The vet said I could hurt my eye doing that, so now I have to wear this e-collar thing. I am absolutely devastated. I am so torn up over this collar thingy that I can hardly walk. I sure can't go up and down stairs. I got up 2 stairs and gave up. Just sat down and waited for mom to come home and carry me. Mom made me go out to potty, and I felt so defeated. I just dropped my head down to the concrete and stood there. Why is she doing this to me? It's the most horrible thing that has ever happened to me. I want to just get a shot. That isn't bad. Or just scold me. But take this horrible, terrible thing off from around my head!!!! It scares me. I run into things with it. I am afraid to walk. I don't think I can eat or drink. Who is going to feed me? Somebody help me!

Now mom says I have to go to help with dance lessons tonight. I don't think I can bear it. Everyone will see me with this thingy on my head, and I think they will laugh at me. I will be humiliated. Maybe someone will take pity on me and take it off me. I am pitiful. Mom keeps saying so. I would go and pretend it isn't on me, but it is on me and it is so scary. I hate my life. Mom says just 4 days of this, but I think that means forever. Help!!!!!!!!!

 

Eye better; market good

My eye is all better now. No more horrible collar thingy. I am free! Life is good again.

I went to the downtown market Sunday and got to see lots of people and dogs. The band was playing and Grandma made me stay with her while Mom danced. I wanted to go out on the dance floor too, but no one would let me. So mom took me out on the dance floor when it was all over and asked me to dance with her, but I didn't want to anymore because the band had quit playing. I saw a couple of my favorite people but no one seemed happy when I jumped up on them and got them all dirty with my paws. I still had a good time and was exhausted when I got home.

I am learning Bolero. Mom has a tape, and I watch it with her and watch her practice. I think I can do this. She is going to have to take smaller steps, though.

More later from the "dancing Scnauzer." (Has a nice sound to it, don't you think?)

tub misadventure

Now I know for sure who is in charge...

When mom puts me in the bathtub for a bath (shower, actually), I have gotten in the habit of jumping out before she can squirt me with that nasty water and get my beautiful coat all wet. Saturday mom put me in the tub and told me "don't jump out" but I promise you all I heard was "jump out." So I did. Thought I finally had her trained! Mom whipped around and looked at me and I looked back and she said in her most mom-like voice, "Get back in that tub." I know my eyes got big, I couldn't believe my ears. Hadn't I just done what she wanted??? I stood there all confused until mom said it again, this time with a bit of a growl in her voice. What could I do? I turned around and jumped back in the tub. Mom just sat there on the floor for a minute with her mouth hanging open. I don't understand people sometimes. But at least I got a "good girl" for it. Then I got a bath. She's going to have to work on these rewards.

Woof!

 

Screen house

I have a new screened in house for when I am outside. Mom thinks it is hers (he, he), but I have figured out how to scoot under the screening to get in and out of it whenever I want. Now it is mine. One of the new neighbor dogs got through the fence and mad a big hole in it and mom had to sew it back together. Then the dog got in again and made more holes. I thought mom would be mad (I know I didn't like this happening to my screen house) but all she did was get some boards and fix the fence so that bad dog couldn't come in our yard anymore. That'll teach it. Sometimes birds get in my screen house. That gets me very excited and I bark until someone comes out and gets them out. I like my screen house. It is shady and no bugs biting me in there. I will let people come visit in my screen house as long as they don't rip it and as long as they bring me treats (that's only polite now, isn't it!).

Woof!

 

Grandma hurt her head

Grandma fell down last week in her living room and hit her head and it bled a lot. She is all bruised on her front and still hurts a lot. Mom wouldn't let me go get my toast from her last week for a couple of days, and I really missed that, especially the good peach jam she puts on it. I missed my grandma too. She must have missed me a whole lot because she kept me all day Saturday. I don't really like staying all day. It gets boring. But at least she gives me a lot of good stuff to eat. Things are back to normal now. I get to spend the morning with her and eat my toast. I am careful to be real gentle with her and not jump on her where she is hurting. I lay at her feet more, too, because I know she likes that. Mom said we need to pray for her. Maybe other people will too, when they read this. I love my grandma.
Woof, woof,
Lexi
