Mom's not an avid diary writer for us,
but we thought my pals might like a
little update about my weight...or
weight loss would be a better word.
I got weighed back in June and I had
lost another 3 lbs to the six I had
previously lost. Well, mom got me
weighed Friday and I lost 4 lbs! My
mom says, 'Yayyyyyy!!' Me, I'm pretty
indifferent about it all. All I know
is mom's mighty proud of me. How do I
know? She has to hold herself back
from running around dancing every time
I get weighed. Instead, she lets out a
squeal and just about hugs me to death.
Sheesh! Contain yourself, woman! Don't
embarrass this dignified Red Cattle Dog!
So, in total, I've lost 14 pounds.
The way mom acts, I'm thinking this is
(Can't forget to give a big shout out to
the thyroid meds.)
Oh-Kaaay...now where's them carrot
treats, woman! This here stomach's
lettin' out some growls!
Oh yeah...I also got a bath yesterday.
I'm much more reddish now that I'm clean...
or might that be much more orangeish!! BOL!

Thought some of you might be interested in
some info about the Arizona fire, so mom
has found the following local news links:
Fire news 2
This fire is massive! That's why so much
smoke is hitting Albuquerque. Mom's feeling
pretty sad for all those forest animals...
well, any animal out there. *Sigh*
OH! Today's celebrated breed is the RED HEELER!
It's on the Dogster Homepage!
Aren't we beeyouteeful!!

Man, the smoke from the Arizona fires
is hitting us big time!
For about 4 or 5 days already.
Nasty stuff, that!
Seems it gets worse at night.
Mom says she can feel it in her chest.
*Cough cough cough!*
It was so bad this afternoon, that it
made the sun look red-orange!
She tried to take a picture, but it
wouldn't show up that good.
Sure hope those massive fires get under
control soon...for everyone's sake.
Better yet, sure hope and pray it
Hope all are well.

Well, I think it was like 3 days ago, mom took
me to get weighed again. I've lost 3 pounds.
Not a total Forrest, but a half one.
Not bad since it hasn't quite been a month like
So, I guess things are going well in the diet
department...but I'm still starving!!

Mom's brother sent her this today.
She thought it was funny, so she'd
like to share it here.
Children Are Quick
TEACHER: Maria, go to the map and find North America .
MARIA: Here it is.
TEACHER: Correct. Now class, who discovered America ?
TEACHER: John, why are you doing your math multiplication
on the floor?
JOHN: You told me to do it without using the tables.
TEACHER: Glenn, how do you spell 'crocodile?'
TEACHER: No, that's wrong
GLENN: Maybe it is wrong, but you asked me how I spell
TEACHER: Donald, what is the chemical formula for water?
DONALD: H I J K L M N O.
TEACHER: What are you talking about?
DONALD: Yesterday you said it's H to O.
TEACHER: Winnie, name one important thing we have today

GLEN: Well, I'm a lot closer to the ground than you
TEACHER: Millie, give me a sentence starting with 'I.'
MILLIE: I is..
TEACHER: No, Millie.....Always say, 'I am.'
MILLIE: All right...'I am the ninth letter of the alphabet.'
TEACHER: George Washington not only chopped down his
father's cherry tree, but also admitted it. Now, Louie, do you
know why his father didn't punish him?
LOUIS: Because George still had the axe in his hand....
TEACHER: Now, Simon , tell me frankly, do you say prayers
SIMON: No sir, I don't have to, my Mom is a good cook.

DUDES! PUPS! PEEPS! WHOMEVER! WHATEVER!
Wait wait wait!
I got sidetracked by Shakira!
Sorry about that.
I LOST SOME WEIGHT!!!
I did! I did!!!
I lost 6 pounds!
In one month, I lost 6 pounds!!!
Mom took me to the closest vet to where we
live (my regular vet is 20 miles away) on the
way to the dog park, Wednesday, to get me
weighed. When she saw the number, she was so
happy she almost busted a move right there!
She was so proud of me she gave me hugs and
Mom says what I lost amounts to a Forrest
'cause he weighs six pounds.
Hmmm...when you look at it that way, it doesn't
seem like much 'cause he's such a puny thang!
Hopefully, in another month I'll lose another
Forrest. That would be so AWESOMELY AWESOME!!
On a more serious note, I want to have a
moment of silence for a dear pal and
fellow Cattle Dog, Levi...................
We're deeply saddened that he has gone
to the Bridge.
Run free and well now, dear friend.
You'll be right here in our hearts.

Another year another birthday.
Yep. I will be the big one oh tomorrow.
Mom can't believe I'm gonna be ten years old already.
If you know my mom, she gets bummed out with birthdays
the older we get. And now I'm bummed because I will not
be gettin' any burgers. She's tryin' to figure out what
to celebrate with. Seriously, folks, I cannot have much
since it's imperative I loose weight quick. I hope it's
not a can of green beans with carrots - even though I do
I've been takin' those thyroid pills for about 4 days,
and mom's noticed I have a teeny bit more get up and go.
Not alot, but it's something. At least I want to get up
and go outside. Before, they'd have to beg me to get out
from under the bed to go. Remember I said sometime before
that's my sanctuary. That's my go to place when I want to
get away from it all.
Oh, mom was mistaken before when she said I was goin' to
be takin' Levothyroxin. I guess she heard the doc wrong
or something. The pills I'm takin' are called Thyrosyn.
Two a day and my kibble has been cut back to 1 stinkin'
cup a day! I've been gettin' lots of carrots. Good thing
I like those, but sheesh, I ain't no bunneh, mom! Every
time she thinks I should get something, here she goes
pullin' out those carrots!! I'm sure I'll be turnin'
orange real soon!
Thanks again for pullin' for me, pals. You all are great!

We just read a friend's diary, and since we're
not on facebook and many of you are, we're
asking you to please vote for Sophie. Here's
the link to her diary entry:

It would be so great for her and her mother,
to win this contest. You see, Sophie won't be
with her mom much longer.
