Where are you?

Food Lady is around the house a lot these days. I'm quite conflicted (in a canine sort of way) about losing my sleep during the day. She doesn't even snack on anything fun. She's working at home. But I do go to the Dog Park almost every day. One day, she walked me all the way to Walk Man. It took forever and we had to see those guys in fezzes. We walked so far that she couldn't walk for two days. I wish she'd take it easy.

I was at the park today. I'm not into playing with other dogs these days. Besides, I have to keep track of Food Lady. There was a guy in the park today who had a big silver stick he kept swinging. It upset me. I barked at him. Food Lady made me Sit-Stay. I listened. I hope she doesn't expect me to listen all the time! The silver stick was a golf club. The guy was practicing while he walked his lemon beagle. He should put the stick down and pay attention to the dogs! I also met a very cool shepherd. She was very nice but kept worrying that someone might take her slobber covered ball. Yuck! I don't believe in chasing balls. Sometimes, I go after it, but mostly I feel like, if you want it, go get it yourself! Just hang on to it. If I do get a ball, I prefer to rip it apart.

So how's your summer been? No one ever writes to me!!!

Comings and Goings

Oh that Food Lady! First, she leaves me for a long time. Then she's here all the time. Not that I mind but keeping track of her walking around the house interferes with my napping schedule. But I do get some extra trips to the DOG PARK. I go to a new one now, and I really like it. It's got a better view of the town. Yesterday, I went to my old DOG PARK. It was so hot, I stood in the water.

I wish Food Lady would feel better. She has a hard time doing Walkman's job. She is tired and seems to hurt a lot. She's also hardly eating. Now that is a problem. I know there's chicken in the fridge, but she won't eat it nor will she give me the chicken. I have a problem with that....you should eat all the chicken at one time.

Let's talk soon.....

 

COLD!!!!

I know its cold because Food Lady is cooking a lot of good stuff! She even gave me raw hamburger. I'm staying close.

I wish we could go to the Dog Park. We go to a new one now and I really like it. The dogs are very nice and I like all the people! But Food Lady and Walk Man are always saying its cold. They say they don't have ready made fur coats. They wear shoes though. I don't and they saw me limping. I didn't really care, I like it outside.

I've got to go. Food Lady keeps bringing in bags of food. I think I saw a roast.

 

Charlie and My Life

Food Lady decided I should have company. I don't understand. She and Walk Man are all the company I need. But, we were at the dog park one day and we met this other lady who said there was a dog like me with the rescue organization at a local store. So we went. I just wanted to get out of there since sometimes I get groomed there. But Food Lady met a little Bichon named Charlie. She filled out papers. The next week, we went back. They shaved poor Charlie. Food Lady and I took him home.

Well, it didn't go too well. I tried to play with him. He wouldn't. He didn't know how. He only wanted my food and chewies. It wasn't good. He peed sometimes in the house even though he seemed to be housebroken. Food Lady bought him a sweater. I didn't need one even though it was really cold. I was willing to share my house and bed. Okay, so I was a bit bent out of shape and wouldn't get on the bed. He liked cuddling with Food Lady and sometimes with Walk Man. I was sort of sad so I wouldn't get on the bed with him. That made Food Lady sad too.

The worst part was when we started to fight. He'd steal my stuff. Actually, I told him everything here was mine. He ate my food. I didn't mind when he ate the kibble. But he was playing with Rocky. That was too much. And my chewies. I had to draw the line. I didn't know I had it in me. But it made Food Lady mad at both of us. She would yell. And she almost never yells. Then she'd cry. Then Charlie piddled in my house again. And he'd lay in my bed. And he'd take things from my crate. (I don't like the crate, but I'd go in there and sit just to make sure he wouldn't go in it.)

Then, one day, about a week later, we all went to the store. I got a haircut. I never saw Charlie again. I wasn't too sad. Food Lady said she was something called guilty. But Charlie didn't want to play with me. We even tried the dog park. He wouldn't play with anyone. It was sort of sad.

I went to see Benjamin. He played. He plays hard. We didn't fight. He let me play with his toys. This is so sad. I can't make Food Lady write about Charlie. She gets upset. Maybe she'll spoil me with treats?????

 

Food Lady Won't Type

I want to write, but she's busy or tired. I have to chew my cow ear. Ok...so I'm busy, too.

 

Terriers Rule!

I can't type so I have to wait for Food Lady to sit at the computer. I have hours everyday that I could be writing, but Food Lady has a job. She says she needs the job to keep me in kibble and meatballs.

Terriers Rule!!! At least this week while she thinks I'm a terrier. I'm pretty sure I'm some kind of terrier. I prefer chasing squirrels and rabbits. Birds are to be ignored.

 

Pluto May Not Be a Planet But He's Still a Dog

Food Lady shared the horrible news. Pluto isn't a planet any more. It's a "dwarf" planet. There are no longer 9 planets in the solar system. There are only 8. She taught me planets were Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto. Exit Pluto. I think Food Lady did her best and she didn’t shield me from the new truth of the day.

But Pluto is still a dog. Or isn't he. What else did she teach me wrong! Oh my...maybe I am supposed to pee in the house and bark at strangers! Who's a little doggie to believe??? She tried to explain that science is growth and learning. Admitting mistakes is a key to growth. So the four food groups gave way to the food pyramid.

Eggs are bad. No they aren't . She says she's waiting for confirmation that French fries are the perfect food, nutritionally speaking. French fries and chocolate would be good news in the science world. It would be nice for her to share chocolate with her dog friends. Until then....I get no chocolate and Pluto is now only a dog or dwarf planet.

Oh my.

 

Are these the Dog Days of Summer?

It is so hot. I pretend like I want to go out. But I don't. I just like seeing if I can get Food Lady to go out for a ride in the cold car and go to drive-up windows. I want the treats. Starbucks forgets treats, though once they gave me "doggie latte"--whipped cream in a coffee cup lid. It was good. Food Lady said no more of those! JavaDetour has really good real dog treats! I like it there. The women at the banks are usually good for treats. The men sometimes ignore me. Its one of many reasons men make me growl. Walk Man is doing our walks way too fast. He should slow down and sniff things. Sniffing is good. Rolling around in the grass is good, too. He doesn't do that either. Last week, Food Lady and I walked and I saw a man in the grass. I had to bark at him. Walk Man is the only man I want to see roll around in the grass.

Oma and Rose visited us last week. It was hot out then too. The went to something called ART. They forgot Benjamin. I wasn't too upset. But I could smell him on Oma. I really love Oma.

I also met my cousins. I liked all the Girlz. They were nice to me. But they had a big dog cousin for me to meet. He is Gordo. He was ok outside, but in my house he was pretty big. I had to show him who was boss. I got in trouble for it. But I'm still boss of the dogs who come to my house. But he got to go to Linzee's graduation party and I didn't. I heard he got some food!

One night, it was hot. Walk Man and Food Lady went to the ice cream drive-thru. They bought me something. It was really good. It was K-9 Custard and it was really yummy. I got full so I had what was left over the next two nights. My own snack!!!!!!! Yea for K-9 Custard!

 

Doggie Daycare Makes Me Tired

I knew something was up. First, I never saw Walk Man last night. Then, Food Lady took me with her this morning on a funny new route and kept saying "daycare". I didn't know the word. I do now!

When we got there, it was soooo wonderful. But Food Lady made me wait so she could fill out papers. All these dogs kept arriving and I couldn't get to them. But she got done, and I went inside the fence. Another lady took my collar off. I realized Food Lady wasn't coming in... I didn't want that!!! But she left.

The teachers said she called to check on me. I was fine. But I was so happy to see her when she picked me up. I wasn't sure I hadn't gone back to the Shelter. And I missed her. I played, but I was still nervous without her.

Then, other dogs got to go home. I was waiting. I saw her!!! My Food Lady!!! She came back. I walked on two paws when I saw her! She didn't forget me. I was hoping she didn't.

They gave her a report card. They said I played with Chickey, Tate and Emma. They said I joined the 'pack' just fine. But I wanted home.

I'm here now. I'm resting. I'm tired. My paw hurts. But she's doing my typing for me! Maybe she'll take me out one more time. But I don't know where Walk Man is. He's not here. I'm worried. And I think I have "raw paw". I'm going to have Food Lady check on it! I'm too tired to move!
