Saturday, I got a new collar

July 3rd 2006 10:44 am
[ Leave A Comment ]

Mommy got me a new collar. I was using the Sense-ible harness, but with the dry hot weather here in San Diego, I started getting an irritation where the straps rubbed against my skin. I have soft and very sensitive skin.

Mommy bought me a large black collar, but it was too big, so mommy took me to the store for a fitting. I got a medium black collar, said hello to some people and a boy Chihuahua who growled at me. He was hot too.

Mommy took me on extra walks this weekend (when it wasn't so hot). I love my new collar and my mommy. She is the best-est mommy in the whole wide world.

Love,

Hope

 

My adventures in the park

Yesterday, before it got too hot, mommy took me for a walk in the park. As soon as I was on the grass, I started kicking it up with my back legs. It felt so good.

Mommy and I walked for a long time, looking at people and puppies. I sniffed a few trees, and when I got thirsty, mommy gave me some water in my soft red bowl.

On the way back to mommy's car, a girl asked mommy if she could take my picture. Mommy said OK. At first, I didn't want to sit still, but finally I did. My picture was taken, and we walked back to mommy's car.

When we got back home, I took a nap. I have the best-est mommy in the whole wide world, and I love her so very very much!

Love,

Hope

 

Big kitties and me

Yesterday during our walk, mommy took me over to her friend's house. Her friend has several kitties (much older than me). There was a screen door between us, but I got to see the kitties, and they got to see me. I laid down on the floor and then they laid down. We were all calm. I watched them though the screen rolling on the floor looking at me.

Mommy's friend said that I should get an older (maybe the same age as me) kitty brother or sister because of something called "prey drive".

Mommy says that I don't have this "prey drive", but an older kitty (needing a forever home) sounds like a good idea as long as they let me kiss them.

Mommy also said that when I'm a good girl we would adopt a kitty. I'm so happy.

I love my mommy so much.

Love,

Hope

PS: I will try to be a good girl but it's very hard. Yesterday evening, I ate half of mommy's yummy sandwich (cream cheese on warm pumpernickel bread). She had to pull the other half out of my mouth. When we took our morning walk today, mommy made sure that my doodie wasn't loose. She's the best-est mommy in the whole wide world.

 

The BIG crate is mine

Guess what?

Mommy gave me the BIG crate. Now when mommy leaves to run errands, I have lots of room to spread out and rest until she comes back.

Bubba had the BIG crate first. I miss him so very much, but I can still smell him when I'm in my BIG crate. Boy, was he a stinkleweed!

Love,

Hope

Yesterday afternoon mommy took me for a walk in the park. We walked for a long time, and when we got back home, I took a nap. Mommy also took me for an extra walk (in the neighborhood) on Saturday.

Mommy is so good to me. I love my mommy very very much and I will try to always be a good girl.

Love,

Hope

 

Grandma moved back to South Florida

Yesterday, grandma moved back to South Florida. Grandma never liked the weather in Southern California (too cold) and wanted to warm her bones. Also, this round of chemo was very very hard on Grandma. Mommy is upset and cries a lot. She has been taking care of Grandma (by herself) for 8 years. Mommy needs to calm down. I will try to help her by being a good girl and listening to her.

Love,

Hope

PS: Mommy is also trying to find herself, and I told her I would look too.

 

Mommy gave me a bath

Yesterday afternoon mommy gave me a bath at South Bark Dog Wash. Before my bath, mommy brushed my hair in the patio. Soon, a nice man (Michael) put me in the tub 'cuz I did not want to go in by myself. He also gave me a blueberry facial and massage. Yes, I like to be pampered and spoiled.

Mommy got me real wet and scrubbed me with an oatmeal shampoo. She said that I looked like "Benji" (who?) . She also used an Apple Oats conditioner to make my hair soft and shiny. After my bath was finished, I jumped out of the tub. Mommy dried me on the patio with lots of towels, and put some perfume on me.

I met some doggy friends, waiting to take their baths, and said "hello". I liked Chester (a black lab) and he liked me too. Chester was big like Bubba was. I still miss my Bubba.

After I was dry, mommy tried to get me to go back in again, but I refused. Mommy had to take me around to the front. When she paid the lady for my bath, I went over to a doggie to say "hello". The doggie growled and snapped at me. Mommy pulled me away from that bad doggie real fast. Then we went home.

Love,

Hope

When mommy and me went walking yesterday, our neighbor said the girl Rottie died in her yard that morning. She got her head caught in a paint can and couldn't breathe. She went to heaven.

This message is for ALL mommies and daddies, please don't let us ever run loose. Bad things happen. Make sure we are safe with you and not unsafe without you.

Love,

Hope

PS: I still miss my Bubba!

 

Last night I slept with mommy (for the first time)

Mommy and I slept in her big bed last night. Mommy said it was "our" bed now. I love how soft our bed is. I also love pillows. I was a good girl and let mommy sleep most of the night. Mommy also took me on extra walks this weekend and gave me "my" cookies. I love my mommy so much.

Grandma came home from the hospital on Friday. I missed her very much and I hope that she never has to go back to the hospital again. I love my grandma so much too.

Right now mommy is at work and grandma and me are at home.

I miss and love my Bubba.

Love,

Hope

 

Bubba is in Heaven

Last night mommy took Bubba to the doctor. Bubba wasn't feeling good. He wouldn't even look at me. He just laid by our water bowl and drank a whole bunch of water. I kissed him, but he did nothing. His gums were very pale. Mommy put cookies on the floor by his feet; he didn't eat them. He also made a big peepee in the house as mommy was taking him out. Then he threw up all the water that he drank and made a small doodie (outside). When mommy got back she told me that Bubba died and went to heaven. She told me that I was the big girl now and that I must be good. I miss Bubba oh so much and I will always love him.

Grandma is still in the hospital (side effects from the chemotherapy). Mommy had to call 911 on Monday morning. Lots of men and a woman came in the house (Bubba and me were in our crates) to take grandma away. Mommy says grandma is coming home tomorrow. I really miss grandma. Please say a prayer for my grandma.

Mommy is very very sad. She could not go to work today, but she did take me for an afternoon walk. The nice people that she works with sent her beautiful flowers in a vase. I wanted to eat the flowers but mommy said "no". I love my mommy and I wish that she wasn't so sad.

Love,

Hope
