PEPSI! Going bye-bye (specially to see Grama and GrandDaddy). Sleepy time to snuggle. Slam-Kissing!

Pet-Peeves:
Cold weather. Being ignored, or bored. And being called a "Pug" (see my ears?).

Favorite Toy:
Any one he can squeak and keep away from Ruby...

Favorite Food:
ANY kind of people food that falls on the floor. And that dang Bully Stik! My Dad says I should have named him "Hoover", cuz he sure can vaccuum crumbs off the floor!

Favorite Walk:
Around the block. He sure enjoys the new Dog Park too!

Best Tricks:
We are working on sign language. He has the basics down!!

Arrival Story:
I drove 2 and half hours to get him ~ without seeing pictures first... AND!!! I didn't tell my parents I was getting him. I kind of fibbed. Told them I was going to the races in Kansas City (which I did!), but that wasn't the reason I went, it was just a bonus. But, hey it's MY house! Right. LOL. They loved him the instant they saw him, so it was all good. They even like to babysit... ;)

Bio:
His full name is Tomb Raider of the Lost Arc. Not named after any football stuff... His personality is one in a million! He does a purr-like sound when he is happy. He snores like a freight train. And of course he has to be on MY pillow, the 5 he has just don't cut it! He doesn't really bark, he communicates more with hops, snorts, expressions and "that stare"... He has no idea what "no" or "no no" means! But responds well to "uh uh". His Property Laws are as follows.. 1. If I like it, it's mine 2. If it's in my mouth, it's mine 3. If I had it a little while ago, it's mine 4. If I take it from you, it's mine 5. If it just looks like mine, it's mine 6. If I saw it first, it's mine 7. If I saw it second and get to it faster, it's mine 8. If you are playing with something and put it down, it's mine 9. If I am chewing something up, all of the pieces are mine 10. If it's broken , it's yours...

Surgery

Well, it's been a while now since I went in to get part of me sliced out, but I want to tell the story...

Mom took me to a new Doctor (specialist) to have this really nice man check out my breathing. He said right away, yes Raider Baby, you need surgery. He told Mom that it would help me breathe better and that maybe what happened to me at the lake won't happen again. He was telling Mom what a great job she did on her "homework" and that it was great that she brought me in to get checked. So she set up the appointment. Mom has to be to work really early in the mornings (I hate getting up at 5 am!), so she asked her Mom to drive into town and take me. I was so ready to go Buh bye, and was even more excited when Ruby DIDN'T get to go with. So Grama leaves me at this place, no biggy. But then! Woah! Next thing I know I'm waking up and my throat hurts so bad! And I'm so hungry but don't want to eat. Mom said that the Doc called her after surgery and it went so well!! Whatever, my throat hurts! The ladies at the hospital were so nice to me though! They loved me and petted me, even the Doctor didn't want to leave me. He told me that my Mom called too many times checking on me, boy I wished I was with her, but he said I had to stay the night, just to make sure I would be ok. I guess Mom and Ruby really missed me while I was gone. And she was up early the next day waiting to come get me, she even took some time off work to take care of me. I was so happy to see her!!!! And I even got to ride home with her with NO Ruby! That doesn't happen anymore. But when we got home, Ruby knew I didn't feel good so she didn't harass me much. Mom held me, and told me that they cut out almost an inch of my pallette. And I guess this means (when I'm better!) that I won't have as many problems breathing, eating (and throwing up) and I won't snore so much at night, or stop breathing at night (that scared Mom the most). I'm all better now. But I make it a point to still make all the fun noises that everyone loves...

 

Scary Day!

Mom took me Bye bye this morning. We went a long way, to a great place. There was tons of water that Mom called a lake. And there were so many people there that all loved me so much! I got pats and pets and even a bandanna! There were other dogs there too. And we all stood together and had our picture taken. Then we all started to walk on this trail around the lake. I was having a super duper time! About a mile down the way, there were a bunch of ladies that gave us water to drink and I had my fair share! We walked a little father and then turned around to go back. Something didn't feel right in my insides and I looked at Mom and then got sick, dang it, there went my breakfast. Uh oh sick again! Mom is trying to talk to me and she is fading out, what is happening?? Then I almost fell over and my body won't listen to me. I was really scared! Mom knelt down, and didn't even realized that she put her knee in my breakfast that I lost. I think she was really scared too. Then other people stopped and I couldn't understand a word anyone was saying! I'm so glad that Mom was on the ground hugging me and trying to calm me down. But she was crying. Then Mom scooped me up and I got to snuggle her while she carried me allllllll the way to the car. I still didn't feel good. I wanted to be in her lap so bad in the car, but I couldn't. It was a long drive home. After a little while and a few bites of some really yummy brisket, me and Mom settled on the couch for a little nap. I just love her so much that she helped me when I didn't know what was going on. I haven't been able to be more that 5 feet away from her since, I know she doesn't mind. I did eat my dinner and it is fine on my insides now. Then we went into the yard and did play for a little bit. Not too much though, I would hate to lose dinner too! I can't wait to go to bed and snuggle with her all night long. It's been a long day!
P.S. Mom said that what we did today was for a really good cause (even though her legs and now her arms from carrying me will hurt tomorrow), and she gave money to the Alzheimer's Association to let us walk with all the other dogs at the lake. I just wish I would have had a better time. Mom says we will never do that again, something about not being near the car and not having the first aid kit in her bag. I think she might have been just as scared as I was! So I guess we will stick to walking around the block and going to the Dog Park and of course playing in the back yard.
