Pretty, pretty Izzy!

Last night, Mother was driving me and Maxwell home from Crappy Town. She had to stop at the gas station to pick something up and left us in the car. Mother looked out the window to make sure we weren't causing any trouble - moi??

I was sitting in the front passenger seat, smiling my beautifious smile. Shortly thereafter Mother came back to the car. A lady was sitting in her car parked next to us, with the window down. She asked Mother if I was a lab. Mother told her I was lab mixed with "something".

Car Lady said I was very, very pretty. Mother smiled and said, "thanks" and then got in the car.

What, exactly was Mother saying "thanks" for? I am the one who is pretty! I am the one who received the complement!

Thanks indeed!!


I'm not ashamed to admit!!!

When Mother came home last night, I insisted on snuggling with her ALL NIGHT!! She walked in the house and I ran and ran and ran around with my rubber chicken in my mouth - HAPPY!!!

After she had given proper lovins to Maxwell and The Man whisked him away to Crappy Town, all of her attention was turned to me!!

I curled up in her lap and fell asleep, safe in the knowledge that Mother was home and I could now keep track of her!

I just found out some very exciting news!! If I wasn't such a lady (ahem) I would pee myself in excitement!!

Apparently Winston's mom is coming to visit ME!! Well, technically she is coming to Dallas for a work conference... but we all know that is just double speak for "visit Izzy".

Mother has known about this for awhile, but hasn't told me or Sammy until today. Mother says that she plans on going to Dallas one night to have dinner and drinkies with Annette, but hopefully, if her schedule allows, Annette may be able to come see ME some other night!!!

Holy cow!!! Mother is excited! I am excited! Sammy is excited! Maxwell would be excited, 'cept he doesn't know (he will be in Crappy Town with The Man, so no point in telling him, right?).

I will be incommunicado for the next few days, as my secretary takes a few days off (don't worry, she asked me first and I approved her request). Take care puppers!


An Izzard's work is never done

So, apparently, Mother has an interview on Tuesday. As part of the interview, she was asked to do a lecture, pretending that the search committee are students. She says this is a "big freakin' deal" (shout out to Biden - woo-woo!!!). But since it really doesn't concern me, I've been rather laissez faire about the whole thing. That was until, Mother started flipping out, shouting, "where is the ATP?!? Where is it?"

I decided to step in and help the poor soul. You see, I'm more than just a pretty face. I'm also pretty good with the thinkin' too! So, you can see from my new photo, I was a great help!!

At this point you may be thinking, "Oh poor Bella. Poor poor Bella! Working all week, trying to help out your Mother, and nothing for you."

Well, that's not entirely true. It turns out I got lots and lots of walkies due to the fact that Mother needed to either "clear her head" or "run through the presentation in my head" and what better way to do all of that than by taking the Izzard for a walk (and Sammy too, but, whatev).

So this past week has actually been quite delighful in terms of attention and walkies. Mother did cop an attitude at one point when she was trying out her lecture on me and Sammy and we both fell asleep.

She said it was rude. I said, "figure out a way to make this more interesting, and I'll stay awake."



An edict from your leader!!

Daytona had a birthday this past weekend.

Apparently it was quite the celebration!!

He is really quite the funny guy (his sister is the smart one). He could use more pup pals, though. He has a lot to bark about, and I think you will find him (and his sis!) to be quite brilliant, or, at least amusing :)

Check him out!!


Putting my paw down!

Mother has been *trying* to do some wallpaper removal at The Man's house. I have been accompanying her for moral support and stuff like that. I was fine with hanging out with her and barking encouraging words from time to time... until this past visit.

You see, Mother likes to turn on the music really loudly (and yes, she "sings" along) when she is working on this project. No problemo. The mixed CD's from Sunny Lee were quite a delightful distraction. I was movin and groovin along with Mother. But then...then, she started playing the Dan Fogelberg CD.

What the woof?!?

Dan Fogelberg?


I'm supposed to get my groove on to "Leader of the Band"?

I don't think so.

She's on her own from now on.


Evie's home!!!

Eve has found her furever home!! Turns out she was home all along... her foster Mom was unable to resist her charms and knack for the barked word - she likes to talk :) - and adopted her as soon as she could.

So, pop on over to Eve's page and giver her a great big CONGRATS!


Hunting Season has begun!!

Mother started on the "updating" at The Man's house this afternoon. While she was busy cursing the wall paper in the bathroom, I was busy huntin' the Pool Devil!!

Mother was nice enough to bring the guy out of hibernation for me. For an hour he and I had a go round trying to kill each other! He would spray me, I would lunge at him and bark. Repeat, repeat, repeat...

Eventually the Pool Devil decided I was too much of a match for him and tucked his tail under a hose and sank to the bottom of the pool.

Izzard - 1

Pool Devil - 0

I'm poopered, but pleased with myself!


Ack! Acccck!

How many of you pups enjoy a piece of popcorn from time to time?

Mother has gotten into the habit of popping up a batch a few nights a week. She likes to sprinkle a few M&M's on top for a little sum'in sum'in extra... but I digress.

Sammy and I like to help her eat the popcorn. As we watch the telly, she'll toss us a piece or two from time to time. Me likey.

What I don't like, however, is when the kernels get stuck in my throat. More specifically they get stuck on the little hangy-down thing in the back of my mouth.

I told Mother about this. She was skeptical that I even have a little hangy-down thing in the back of my throat. Although, I guess it's not something she ever really gave much thought to.

So, every once in awhile, after a night-o-popcorn, I'll spend a few minutes like this,
"Ack!....Accccccck! Mother!! It's stuck on my hangy-down thingy!!! Accccck!"

She tells me to drink some water and stop hacking.

Heartless, she is.


No one asked the Iz!!

Holy crapola!! Mother has been flying off the handle lately and has refused (refused!!!) to update my diary.

Unacceptable, if you ask me!

Anywag... Mother has been gone during the day this week. She is starting a very part-time job at a local hospital. She is in training this week, so has been getting up earlier than I prefer in order to make it to work on time.

Mother has told me that after this week of training, she doubts she will be working there more than 1 or 2 times per month. She seems sullen about this, but, quite frankly, I'll be happier when she is home more in order to meet my needs.

Mother is looking for a "full-time" job. I am doing everything I can to hinder her search. I paw, paw, paw at her whenever she is at the computer. Usually she cannot resist my beautiful face, and will stop to pet me. But, sadly, she eventually goes back to her search.


If she does find a job, I will be forced to post an ad for a full-time caregiver, as she clearly will not be able to spend as much time fawning over me as I have become accustomed to during her stint of un-employment.

The good news is she feels so guilty about being gone all day that she plays lots and lots of fetch with us when she does come home. It's funny, she didn't use to feel guilty about leaving us to go to work, but, I guess she just got used to spending her days with us.

That's all I have for now.

I'll try to keep you all better updated on The Iz!!
