I Have a Baby Brother!!

It has been a mixed bag of emotions since my wonderful older sister passed away. I missed her so so so much, but it has been kind of nice not having to compete for food or attention!! I also no longer need to guard my stuff from prying muzzles.

However, all that is behind me now, as my mommy and daddy brought me up to a place far away called Ojai to meet my new baby brother Spyro!! He seems kind of nice but scared at the same time so I will show him who is boss around here!! ME!!

** So let's see, a week later, and I am starting to like him more. You know, it is kind of nice to have a companion to play with again. Spyro loves to play and to chase. He also helps me when hunting the intruding squirrels. Any friend who also likes hunting squirrels is ok with me.

We will get along great, so long as he remembers who's in charge here...



A teary Farewell to my Sister.

I have been so lonely lately since my older sister, Bella passed away. She used to wait until I was scratching my back in the backyard and then race over and ambush me while I was upside down. Then she would chase me around the yard many times while I would easily outrun and out smart her. However, she was always eager to find me and chase me. Hmmmm, I miss that. I also miss sitting next to her for comfort on her futon.

Bella, I will truly miss you!!!

However, it has been kind of nice being the top dog around here.


I Was Busy During the Holidays!!

Wow, was I ever the busy little doggy during the holidays!! My daddy bought a lot of gifts online, so that meant a barrage of delivery men to our front door. Of course I had to bark at each of them. "GET AWAY FROM MY DOOR, YOU STRANGER!!" I said. However, they kept coming. Now this was fun for me as well as stressful. I love to yell at the mailman, so yelling at the delivery guys was just more fun.

During the holidays, the gardeners came... I had to yell at them. Delivery guys, had to yell at them. Holiday party guests, needed to let them all know that i knew they were here. Finally, the kids came over, oh that is the most tiring experience of all.

I think I need a vacation.


The Trash Truck Scares Me!!

Hooray, mom and day are home all week. This is very important to me because today is Monday is trash day. You see, I am very very scared of that terrible truck that makes horrible noises! I get very nervous and upset. The noise of the truck makes me cry and whine, and when no one pays attention to me, I make them pay attention to me by clawing at anyone within a paws shot. And if they are not available, I will scratch at any set of blankets available to me. One day I even put a little hole on the couch. Luckily no one yelled at me for it.
However, when Mom and Dad are home they help me stay focused on other things, like sit, stay, come and the best one of all which is the find it game! They hide treats all over the house, and my sister Bella and I must find them. OH Yummy! This makes my tummy happy and helps to take my focus away from my panic attack and that horrible trash truck! Maybe if I just close my eyes and wish hard enough it will go away forever..... Hey.... it's gone!! Do you think that my wish worked?? Oh boy I hope so!


Who Needs a Watch

Who needs a clock or watch?? Stupid humans do, that's who. I surely do not need one to be able to know what time I eat and what time is bedtime. Dumb humans need alarm clocks to tell them when to do certain things. HA, I am much more reliable than a dumb ol' clock. Dinnertime is 6:00 every day. I start warning them that my dinnertime is fast approaching about a half hour before it is actually supper. You see, my humans need constant reminders that it is dinnertime. I would totally do it all myself if I also had an apposable thumb. However, since I cannot work a can opener, then the best that I can do is to make sure to remind them far in advance that dinnertime is coming.

What??? oh what is that feeling in my tummy... Could it be? Suppertime?? Yup, it is 5:45pm, almost dinnertime.

Well, I've got to go, my dumb humans need to be reminded early what time it is.



Look, a Squirrel!!

Well, lately my days have been very busy. A young squirrel has moved in and it infuriates me that I can't catch it! Every day the squirrel comes out onto the wooden fence that surrounds my yard. It sits up there and wiggles it's fluffy tail at me to come chase it. If that doesn't work, then it scurrys across the fence about halfway and then stops and looks at me. I don't move, as it may see me hunting it. The squirrel then runs back to where it started from and the whole thing starts over again. By the way, when the squirrel runs back, I love to chase it. I then try to climb the fence to get to it. Also, something that you may not know is that squirrels bark kind of like us dogs. It sits on the fence, flicks its flufffy tail at me, and then barks at me.

You know what????

I think this squirrel may be playing with me.

Well, I will play back, that is until I catch it.

Oh look, there it is!! Gotta run.


Wiggle, Waggle, Walk

Last weekend my family went to "The Wiggle, Waggle, Walk", a charity event put on by "The Pasadena Humane Society" in Pasadena, California. My bestest friend, Darby, and the rest of my family went with me. Little did I know that Dad and I would be taking the walk for charity alone, without the rest of my family. Well, that is not altogether true, I knew that Bella could not make the whole walk, so mommy stayed with her at the park.

We waited for my other friend, Allie, but we could not find her, so dad just fell in line and started walking. I was nervous and kept looking behind me. "Nope, my family is not with me, boo hoo..." I said.

I got to the point that I was enjoying the walk when Dad followed the crowd to the long walk instead of the short one that we usually do. You see, we usually do the 1 mile walk instead of the 3 miles walk. Dad decided to try the long walk.

Almost halfway through the walk, I started to get restless and apparently so did Dad. He realized that I didn't want to continue, which was good because neither did he. I heard himj say, "Good lord, I'm so bored and we are not even halfway there yet. THIS BITES!!!"

So, we turned around and went back. halfway back I smelled something and ran over to it. There was a very nice old lady sitting on a bench, but she is not what smelled. The smell came from a bunch of holes in the ground. GOPHERS!!!!! I ran from hole to hole sticking my nose into each hole. Why, it might be in there. Shoot foiled again, no gopher. Maybe it was in the big hole. Couldn't get my nose in it, so I dug it open. Still no gopher. DAMN!!

I wonder if there is a limit to how far I can dig. That gopher had to be in there somewhere. Maybe if I dog really far I will find that the gopher. Oh well, at least the elderly lady was nice and gave me nice pets and love to boot.

Finally, dad and I left and went to go rejoin Bella and Darby over at the park where the festivities were. Thank goodness that daddy got bored and brought me back because I feel so much more at peace when i am around my entire family.

Hmmm.. that was a fun, yet tiring day. I still wish I had caught that gopher. Hmmm... Oh well, that's live I guess....




That darn bird

v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v.... teeth are chattering and my body is quivering and it's all because of that darned bird. My daddy has a parrot who squawks really loud and it frightens me. I do not like that bird. I wanna eat it up, yum. It is in the other room and is making lots of noise and I do not like that. I need tender loving care and lots of reassuring that I am not going to be eaten or that my eardrums will not explode due to that darned birds horrible noise.

However, not all is bad, I did get a little licky taste of that horrible parrot the other day. Daddy took him out of his cage, as he sometimes does, but this time the bird flew off him and onto the floor. I immediately hunted it and tried to make friends with it by licking it and maybe even give it a little friendly nibble. Yum Yum, that was one tasty parrot, even though it was the ONLY parrot that I have ever tasted. Yum, maybe it would feel more comfortable and make less noise in my belly!! That would be a dream come true.

Well, one can dream can't one? Until then I will need to find a way to put up with SQUAWWWWWWKKKKKKK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What a GREAT week!! I met a new friend on Thursday. You see, I kind of have a bit of trouble convincing my mommy and daddy that I can make friends with other dogs. Well, this week, I did!! "Ththththt...." See I can be trustworthy around other dogs!! I do like them, so long as they are nice and don't move too fast around me.

Anyways, my new friend's name is Maddy. She is bigger and younger than me, well, age ain't everything, I got the looks. I met her at my friend Darby's house. She lives next door and was friendly from the getgo, only mommy and daddy did not trust me right away. They kept me behind a fence, so I growled a bit, which I guess did not help matters much. Anyhow, when they finally did let me visit her, i went right up an asked her if she wanted to play with me. She was only too happy to oblige. We ran around together for a long time, even Bella tried to get in on the fun, but overprotective mommy and daddy put a stop to that. "She might get hurt... blah blah blah... stop babying her." I say (only it comes out as "Bark, Bark, Bark, Woof, Growl, Woof)."

I can't wait to see my new friend again REAL soon. Maybe this time she will come over to my house. I hope so. Well, maybe not today, I am tired from all of the recent activity, I think that the only activity that I will partake in today is catching some zzzzzzzzz's.



Mom's Chair

Hi all,

Well, what do I have to tell you about this fine Spring day. Last night Daddy was up later than mommy playing the DAMNED Xbox. I usually hate it when he plays but last night wasn't too bad. You see, I found that when mommy is not in her chair, it is quite comfortable for me to sleep in. It is just the right size for me to curl up in and take a nice nap.

However, enough is enough!! Sometimes, you just have to take the bull by the horns and tell people when you've had ENOUGH!!

Hmm. oh, mommy isn't in her chair. now is my time, but HEY, Daddy is turning on that horrible XBOX again!! Ok, I gotta go. This means war. When a doggy wants her sleep, a DOGGY IS GOING TO HAVE HER SLEEP!!
