My humans. Gettin' treats. When daddy gives me some of his food when mommie is not lookin' but mommie does the same thing (shhh, don't tell). Goin in the car. My new baby brudder, Gizmo.

Going out in the rain. Mommie leaving the room without me. Blowing into my hair.

Favorite Toy:
A cat squeaky toy that I love to chase after. Mommie and Daddy's shoes.

Favorite Food:
Any thing anyone else is eating~! Flint River Ranch, Science Diet and Dr Fosters and Smith Puppy Food.

Favorite Walk:
Sneakin' over to the next door neighbor's yard to sniff around.

Best Tricks:
Roll over, lay on my side, sit up pretty, stealing the neighbor's paper and speaking (I can do it LOUD and I can do it softly). Playin dead dog.

Arrival Story:
My mommy was really down in the dumps at the holidays, so my daddy and brudder came to get me to cheer her up. They put me in a Christmas hat underneath the tree with a big red bow (after having me in the house for almost 8 hours, and I know how much of a surprise I was supposed to be, so I didn't make a peep!) Don't tell anyone but the real reason I was so quiet that day was because I was still getting over my car sickness from the ride home. My mommy said that since I was black, and she was a bad girl, Santa brought her a "lump of Coal" and that is how I got my name.

I am the center of my mommie's universe. Sshhh don't tell her, but she is mine, too! I wouldn't have it any other way!

Okay, let me start this out by saying that this entry should have been written three weeks ago, but I decided I would wait and see how it went before making up my mind!

The day before Father's Day, we went on a long car ride. I was so happy because it was me, mommy and daddy. My hu-bro stayed at home. Usually I don't like car rides because I usually get sick but mommy gave me some medication first, and I found it to be quite alright! We went and got a rental car so most of the way, I rode on the floor of the back seat. When I wanted to, I would go up front between mommy and daddy and let them make a big fuss over me. We stopped at a nice place where I got to run around, go potty, and play for quite a while as well. It was up in the mountain area, which I had never been to before.

We stopped to put food into the car (I think they called it gas) and this woman and her husband came up on these machines that made ALOT of noise. She had this funny thing on her head as well, but she took it off, and walked up to the car window to talk to me and mom! She thought I was a girl!!! I showed her I wasn't no girlie girl! But she turned out to be really nice, and she smelled good too, found out she had just eaten a hotdog, and that was what I was smelling!

Well, eventually, we got to where we were going! Mommy got out and left me walking with my dad! Well to my surprise, I see mom and she had a BIG dog on a leash and was trying to get him to come out with her. He was massive compared to little ole me!!! Well, who did he think he was??!?!! That was MY mommy, and I was gonna go let him know it!

Well I went over to the nice cool grass and he came over and layed down on the grass. Mommy was feeding him some cookies but he wouldnt eat them, so I got them!!! Hey, you snoooze.......right? Well, I kept trying to play with him but he didn't wanna play with me! Must've been something wrong with him, why wouldn't he play with little ole cute me? So, mom puts me in the car and goes back to talk to those people again, and guess what? I jumped out of the window, which I have never done before, but it was pretty cool, if I can bark about it myself! I LOVED IT!!! Can't wait to do it again!

Well, next thing I know, this dog gets in MY car. He took up the WHOLE back seat? Where did they think I was gonna sit??? Did they forget about me??!! So, I get in his face to tell him to scoot over, and he had the nerve to growl at me. I kept tryin' to get him to play, and he growled again, so I gave up. I laid on the back seat floor, and left him alone. We stopped quite a few times on the long ride back home. Turned out we had gone to Reno, Nevada to bring this dog back with us. Oh yeah, in case I forgot to mention it, he is what they called a standard poodle and his name is Cody, and he was only about two months older than me. So, maybe we can be play mates!

Eventually, we got to our home, and we played outside for quite a while even though it was midnight! He kept chasing after me, and he was massive, and when he pawed at me, he threw me into the flower pots a few times, and it hurt! So, I started to run and hide under mom and dad's chairs, or under the fountain cuz he couldn't get me there! We went into the house, and the first thing he did was make himself comfy in MY BED!!!! Oh no, was not having this! So, I went over and told him that it was where I slept and to get out! He got up, made himself all big, growled at me, and I said "okay if you wanna sleep there, go ahead, I wanna sleep on the nice cold tile floor anyways, as it is too hot!" Wasn't that nice of me?? Well, mom and dad took the bed away, something about not giving them a reason to fight over it! So, my plan worked....BOL.

I heard mom and dad talking about Cody's old house and evidently he was not treated very well, so we went to rescue him. Not too sure how long he is gonna be here, but I feel bad for him that his mom didn't love him the way my family does, so I guess I will take it easy on him for a while. I will share my things with him, and let my family love on him as long as they dont forget about that I am the center of their attentions :)

I will write more about what has happened the last three weeks since he has been here in another diary entry, as this is pretty long now! Keep reading to find out how this is all working out for me...............................

Until the next entry......make sure you keep your humans wrapped around your paws......................

Well, mommy took me to a new place to groom me since I wouldnt allow her to do it, no matter how many fancy tools she bought. She tried and tried and although I let her think she was going to be able to do it, I would mouth her hands and those clipper thingies. So, she finally gave in, and took me to a proper place. I liked it there, BUT when she came at my face, I decided to bite her and show her who was BOSS! I thought this through, but did not expect she would bite me back. Mommie has done this to me before but it was a very long time ago and she bit me on my scruff of the neck! Not Carol (the groomer), NOPE, she bit me back on my nose/mouth! And then I cried! This caused Jeannie (who owns the shop and her daughter) to come to my rescue. Guess how I paid her back? YUP!!!! BIT HER TOO!!! BOL. So, after a while I stopped crying and they finished me up, and mommie was VERY happy with how I came out. I like it too, but I will tell you what I don't like....these red bows on my ears....oh well, just figuring how to get rid of them, and I wont give up until I do...until next time.................................Bark at you later.

Oh yeah, one more thing, I turned 8 months old yesterday!! Happy Birthday to me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I wanted to go nigh-nigh's the other night, well, truth be told, mommie and daddy wanted me to, I wanted to play :>, and I was having this weird feeling in my mouth. I was doing everythin I could to make it stop! I was bitin' on mommie and daddy's hands, I was lickin' mommie's shirt, and her face, and well....everything I could...but it wouldn't stop.

Daddy finally went to that place upstairs that he goes most nights, and he leaves me down here with mommie and she says she has somethin called insom------insom-------insom somethin. So, we stay downstairs and she takes me outside alot! Sometimes, we go out and play and I hear lots of noises I usually don't hear when it is light outside. But I get to do stuff I don't when it is light out, cuz mommie says everydog else is sweepin'.

So, I was cryin' (now don't go makin' fun of me, cuz I am still a baby yet). Mommie came over, picked me up and was holdin' me, talkin' in her real soft voice that I like. She opened my mouth and was lettin' me put her finger in the back and chew softly. Somethin' was up, cuz I am not usually allowed to go after her hands. She always tells me "no bitin', but like I said, she let me.

The next morning when daddy was leavin' like he does everyday, she thought I was sleepin' and I heard her tell him that my toof was loose. She said it was one in the front!

Well last night when mommie made me open my mouth, she told me that I was startin' to be a big boy cuz I lost my first toof. She went lookin' for it, but I don't think she found it.

From what I hear, this is gonna be happenin' for a while and then one day, I will have big teef to bite them with. YAY!
