New friends and a birthday!

March 7th 2006 1:35 pm

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.



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.


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!!


One stone Schnauzer

Ever since mom found out that some weird measurement called a stone is 14 pounds, she has been calling me her one stone schnauzer. Actually, she says I am one stone and a couple of pebbles, but I think she is just making that up. I don't care what she calls me as long as she keeps taking me to the park at lunch time. I just love this warm weather, so I can go run, run, run. I wore my new bling to the park hoping I could show it off, but there weren't any other dogs around. A car pulled in with a German Shepherd and a Great Dane, but when they saw me they left. I didn't mean to scare them away. Do you think it was my new bling?


New bling

I have a new bling bling. Mom's friend put this shiny red ring thingy on my collar and told me it was my new bling. I think it is beautiful. I don't know why mom said that was mean and to get that J-ring off my collar. Anyhow, mom's friend took it off and I pawed and pawed at his hand and at my new bling until he put it back on my collar. I am walking around very proud of my new bling, and I hope mom doesn't take it off again.


Christmas in the Smokies

Hi ya'all! I spent Christmas in the Smokies with my mom and big brothers. The smells around the cabin were fantastic. I sniffed so much I forgot to run, run, run. I think maybe I was smelling some of those bears mom told me to watch out for, so I am glad I didn't catch any of them. They smell bigger than fleas! The neighbor dog came over to "my" yard and I ran out and told him just who he was messing with. He acted all submissive and wanted to play, but once I set the rules, I just wanted to sniff around the cabin some more. I didn't want to be anti-social--I was just too busy to play.

I got a cool stuffed fish toy. I also got a ball that mom put my food in and I have to roll it around to get my food out. I don't think I like that idea. I wish she would put something better in it. Then I would roll it around more. And I got greenies and treats. Yummmmmmmm.

The stairs were too steep going up to the bedroom and I didn't like to use them, so I just sat at the botton and whined a lot until my brother came and put me in bed with him. I thought maybe that was the new house, but Mom said, no, we were just visiting there. We are going to move into this new house later this month. I still haven't gotten to see it. I want to go see it. That reminds me, it was warm out today so mom took me to the park at lunch. Yeah!

Mom spilled all the cold gravy out of the refrigerator, so I helped her by licking it all up. She seemed pleased. I am her little helper.

Well, gotta go now and see if mom put something better in my treat ball yet.


New house

Well, mom went and bought a house without my approval. Heck, I didn't even get to see it. She keeps telling me how great it is...hardwood floors for me to run and slide on and a big fenced back yard for me to run and play in. It even comes equipped with a friendly doberman right next door. I think I remember him from the park. He wanted to play with me, but he was so big and strong that I had to growl and bark at him to be sure he knew I was boss. Maybe he will understand that, and when I move into our new house he will want to play nice with me.

I wonder where mom will put my kennel in the new house. I love my kennel. It is my safe place, and if I get scared cause mom's mad at me or if I know she is going to do something I don't like (like give me a bath) I run and hide in it. It is really big and has a big pillow in it and my food dish and my water bottle. I love my water bottle too. I like the sound the little metal ball makes when I lick it to get water. And it doesn't get my beard wet and make me cold.

Mom said the new house is really close to here, so she will still come home for lunch every day and we can still go to the park like we used to. I hope I get to go again soon. I had almost forgotten to whine to go there when Mom suprised me last weekend and took me. I ran, ran, ran!

I am so excited about going to the cabin in Gatlinburg with mom and the boys. (I don't know why mom calls them "boys". They are really big.) I will get to sleep with them and go outside with them and run, run, run! And mommy has presents for me, too! I know they will be good, because I can smell them...I just can't get to them!

Mommy said to wish everybody a Merry Christmas, so woof woof woof!!!


House shopping

Mommy took me house shopping last weekend. I loved it! I got to run through empty houses and run up and down stairs and sniff everything and run, run, run. She kept asking me if I liked the houses and if I wanted to live there. I always wagged my tail yes. At the second house, mommy smiled a lot and that made me run and wag my tail more. The wood floors are good to slide on and it has a wide staircase that's not too steep so I won't fall. Mommy said she'll get a fence so I can run loose in the yard, too.

Then mommy took me to check out a new marina and that was extra fun because of all the smells and the water. It made me remember my boat. As I was coming back to the car mommy asked me if we should put my boat there (I didn't know she was going to ask me that), so I had to run back around the docks again before I could answer her. I said yes. Now. But she didn't do it now. And we aren't living in the new house. I wish mommy would tell me if we are going back there and when she is moving my boat.

I wish she would take me to the park, too. We went in the car last night and I thought we were going to the park (it was dark out, but hey, there can always be a first time, right?) and then I moaned when I realized we were just going to the store. If you think that was bad, wait, it gets worse. When mommy parked, she pulled my sweater out of the back of her coat (tricky mommy, she was hiding it!) and tried to put it on me. I put up a good fight. She won. I got cold in the car anyhow. That will teach her! Maybe she won't put that stupid awful sweater on me anymore and maybe she will take me to the park where I can run, run, run next time. But I think she got me something for Christmas when she went in the store without me. I gotta go now and sniff around to see if I can find it.


Going to Gatlinburg!

Mom said we are going to Gatlinburg for Christmas. I get to be with my big people brothers and there will be lots of good food and gifts. We're going to stay in a cabin and there's lots of woods around where I can run and play. Yeah! But Mom said I have to watch out for bears....what are bears?

It's going to be sooooooo much fun. Except for the bears. I hope there aren't any, whatever they are. I wonder if they are like fleas. Fleas are bad. Ticks are bad. Bears are bad. I hope Mom doesn't put spray on me to keep them off me.

She said she's putting a bow on my collar. I bet I can get it off. Won't Mommy be surprised!


Christmas decorating

I have had a lot of diary entries to catch up on. Mom's been too busy to help me so I have had to remember a lot of stuff. Mommy decorated for Christmas over the weekend. I helped her put up the tree and the lights are real pretty. My favorite decoration is the Snow Man. Mom squeezes his mitten and he plays his guitar and sings "I'm a Snoooow Man" to the tune of "I'm a Soul Man" and he moves in time to the music. I can sit and watch him for a long time. He fell down once and I dragged him around for a little bit while Mommy was gone to work, but I didn't hurt him because I want him to keep singing.

Mom talked about taking my big kennel to the basement to have more room for the tree, but I am glad she left it. It is my safe place. I run into it when Mommy gets mad at me or when she tries to give me a bath or put on my sweater (I especially hate the sweater). My food is always in there, too, and I love to drink out of my water bottle that is on the door of the kennel. I would rather use it than my water bowl. It doesn't make my whiskers wet.

Mom is all over her cold now, but she still won't take me too the park. I wish I could go to the park, I want to go to the park, someone take me to the park, I should go to the park, it is my right to go to the park, it is my entitlement to go to the park, I want to go to the park. What Mom? A treat? Where did I want to go? I want a treat, I want a treat! Yeah, a treat!
