It sure is Cold!

This morning we got up and it was soooo cold in the house. Mommy had to put the furnace on so we could stay warm. It wasn't long before the house was nice and warm again. I had a nice morning with my Mommy. We just hung out together and played with my toys. Mommy made me a whole piece of rye bread toast with Cheez Whiz on it and cut it up into nice little bits for me. I also ate all my doggy kibble too. Mommy is trying to put weight on me so she is always encouraging me to eat. Mommy went out for a few hours this afternoon but then she returned and we had a nice evening together. Mommy made a sirloin tip roast for supper which sure is yummy. For supper I got mashed potatoes, cooked carrots and sirloin tip roast. Yummy, yummy! It was raining and cold all day so I didn't get to go outside much. It was okay because I enjoyed being home with Mommy. Tomorrow is suppose to be rain and cold too. I don't care because it is a holiday and Mommy will be home so I know it will be a great day! Any day at home with Mommy is better then a working day!!!!!


Victoria Day Weekend

This is a long weekend, namely Victoria Day is on Monday. Yahoo!!! I love all long weekends because that means that Mommy is home. Since some of my readers are not familiar with Victoria Day I thought I would put a little description about it in my diary.

Victoria Day:

In Canada, the celebration of Victoria Day occurs every year on Monday, prior to May 25th. It is the official celebration in Canada of the birthdays of Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth II. Victoria Day was established as a holiday in Canada West (Now Ontario) in 1845, and became a national holiday in 1901. Before Victoria Day became a national Holiday, people had celebrated Empire Day , beginning in the 1890s as Victoria approached her Diamond jubilee in 1897.
Victoria, queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland and empress of India was born on 24 May 1819. She ascended the throne after the death of her uncle George IV in 1837 when she was only 18. She ruled until her death in 1901 when her son Edward the VII became king of England

I hope you liked the description that I found on the Internet. It is an important holiday because it really is the kick off to spring and summer. People who have cottages usually go and open them up for the season this weekend. Others like to do serious yard work. The rule of thumb is you never plant anything until after Victoria Day because it may freeze. There is also lots of fairs around and lots of firework displays. This year is an especially cold Victoria Day weekend which isn't the greatest.

Mommy and I slept in this morning which I just love. We had a nice quiet morning at home together. Mommy then went out shopping and I stayed at home. She came home with a new pair of shoes and a new pair of sandals. I really don't see the difference between these and all the shoes she has in her closet. Oh well, I guess if it makes Mommy happy then it is good. Mommy then went out and cut the grass for the first time this year. I had to stay inside and watch through the window because Mommy was worried that I would get hurt if I was outside or that I might run out the gate. It only took Mommy about 45 minutes to do the grass and then she came in.

It was sunny but cool today and it is suppose to rain for the next three days. To celebrate Victoria Day there is a local fair close to our house. We can hear the rides and music from our backyard. Last year I got to walk around there but this year I can't because I am still in season. Mommy is just so careful with me when I am in season which I guess is a good thing because we don't want any unplanned puppies. This evening we were surprised to see that the fair had a fireworks display which is usually done on Monday. Mommy says they likely did their fireworks display tonight because of all the rain in the forecast. Mommy and I stood out on our deck watching the fireworks and it was just beautiful. There was lots of beautiful fireworks with so many beautiful colours. It was cold outside and we were freezing by the time they were over and we were very happy to get back into the house!


Another Day

Mommy is sure working lots this week. Today I got a big surprise because Mommy came home for lunch. Boy, did I ever love that! I got to go outside in the sun for awhile and then I shared some lunch with Mommy. Yummy!!! Mommy had to go on one of her road trips this evening because she had a meeting at 6 pm. She didn't get home until 8:30 pm! We had a yummy supper together so I guess that made up for it a bit. Mommy says one more late night tomorrow and then we will have a long weekend together. Monday is Victoria Day and is a holiday in Canada so my Mommy will be home. Yahoo!!!

Mommy says that we have to cut the grass this weekend for the first time this season, I guess summer is almost here. I love doing all yard work and house work. My favourite hobby is watching Mommy work! BOL!

My new edition of "modern dog" arrived today and I can hardly wait to read it. Being the Diva that I am I always have to keep up to date with the latest fashion and styles.


Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr to Mommy!

I am not very happy with Mommy right now. She had to go on another of her traveling trips today and she left home at 7:15 am and didn't get back until 9:30 pm. What a terrible Mommy for leaving me alone. I know I am fine because I have my puppy pad for potty, my food, my water, my toys and the TV is on. Mommy also doesn't do this very often but when it does happen I am not happy. I think I should now get even with her and keep her up all night because I need attention. Tomorrow she has to go back there and she may be late again. She says that a long weekend is coming up and she is going to spend lots of extra time with me. I can hardly wait!


Happy Mother's Day!

I would like to say Happy Mother's Day to all the human and doggy Moms out there. I would especially like to say Happy Mother's Day to my human Mom and to my doggy Mom "Teddy". Here is a special poem for all of you that I found on the Internet:

"Happy Mother's Day"

"Happy Mother's Day" means more
Than have a happy day.
Within those words lie lots of things
We never get to say.
It means I love you first of all,
Then thanks for all you do.
It means you mean a lot to me,
And that I honor you.

But most of all, I guess it means
That I am thinking of
Your happiness on this, your day,
With pleasure and with love

My Mommy and I had a really nice Mother's Day together. First we slept in until 10 am, it was wonderful!! I did get Mommy up at 8 am to go outside but we went right back to sleep. Then Mommy and I went shopping to buy my doggy Mommy "Teddy" a Mothers Day present. I went into the store with my Mommy and helped pick out the present that I wanted to give to Mommy Teddy. I bought her a real nice yellow Loofa dog because I just love my Loofa dog. I also got her some yummy organic treats. We then put the present into a gift bag and took it to the doggy show with us. We gave the gift to my Auntie Lorna so she could give it to Mommy Teddy. I sure hope she likes my present. Then we did the regular dog show thing - on the table to be groomed and I got to bark at some of the other doggies. Then I went and played in the show ring. I didn't win anything but Mommy said I looked just beautiful and that I behaved very well. Mommy says I won't be going to a doggy show again until next year because I need to have some more time to mature and get more body. I just know that once I do mature that I will be just pawsome! Mommy says she loves me just the way I am and I love my Mommy too!


Bicycle Theme!

Have you noticed my new look for my page? Yep, the new theme is bicycles. I wanted a bicycle theme so that every time Mommy looks at my page it will remind her to take me out on the bike in my basket. Hopefully she will get the message. She says that I won't be able to go out on the bicycle until my season is over which won't be for another couple of weeks. :( She said we would be having all the male dogs chasing us down the street! BOL!!! That does sound like a funny sight with me in the basket and Mommy pedaling like a crazy woman with the pups chasing us! I don't think that would happen but Mommy still won't go out on the bike with me until my season is over.

Today I went to a doggy show. I always love doggy shows because they are so much fun. I get to be with all my favourite people and pups and I get to growl and bark at the strange pups. It was a typical doggy show where I had to stand on the grooming table and then I got to play in the doggy show ring. After I was shown I hung out with my Mommy and we looked at the booths and chatted with people. Some silly person reported us and said that we were not entered in the doggy show. We weren't mad but just thought there has to be someone out there that has nothing better to do then to try and get pups into trouble. Anyways this one backfired on them because I was entered. BOL!


Big Surprise!

This morning we got up extra early for a work day and it made me wonder what was going on. Mommy decided to give me a shower. First she splashed water all over me and almost drowned me when she sprayed it on my head. Then she put this smelly shampoo on me and then sprayed me with water again and again she tried to drowned me. After that she wrapped me in a towel and put me on that terrible little grooming table. Then she put that hot blowy thing on me. Since she couldn't drowned me I figure she was trying to cook me. Finally after all that torture I managed to survive and Mommy put me on the floor. Let me tell you I ran as fast as my little legs could take me and I hid in my little tent. Mommy then went on with what looked like a regular morning of getting ready for work. She had her own shower, made a lunch and got dressed. As usual I was begging to go with her. I do this every morning and every morning Mommy puts me in the pen and leaves me. For this reason I just couldn't believe my ears when Mommy actually asked me if I wanted to go for a car ride! In my crate I went and we were off in the car. Mommy dropped me off at my Auntie Lynne's house. Auntie Lynne is a very long time friend of my Mommy's and she loves pups too. It seems that Mommy had to work so my Auntie Lynne was going to take me to the doggy show. My Auntie Lynne took me to the doggy show so my Auntie Lorna could show me. Auntie Lorna put me on another grooming table and did some more grooming. I just don't know why all these humans want to torture me today! After that I played in the doggy show ring and really did a good job. My Auntie Lynne then took me back to her house and my Mommy picked me up after work. I got home and I was so tired and I just curled up in my favourite doggy bed and fell asleep.

I can't believe that I am a diary pick today!! Wow, that is so exciting and to think I almost missed it! Mommy is so busy with her new job that she didn't get to check Dogster until this evening. Thanks everypup for your warm p-mail wishes and beautiful rosettes.

Life has been rather quiet around here the last couple days. Mommy is busy, busy working and she has been coming home later then she used to. Mommy says I can't go for walks because I am "in season". So when Mommy comes home the only thing I can do is play in my backyard or play in the house. Mommy is kind of boring too because she brings work home to do or she is tired and wants to sleep. I am hearing that things should pick up this weekend because I have a doggy show to go to. I almost had to miss the show on Friday because Mommy can't take time away from work but our friends came to my rescue. My Mommy is going to drop me off at my Auntie Lynne's place on Friday morning on the way to work and Auntie Lynne is going to take me to the doggy show. We are going to meet Auntie Lorna (my breeder) there and Auntie Lorna is going to show me. Thank dog I have such wonderful friends. I love dog shows and I can hardly wait to go!

I want to say a special Happy Birthday to my cousin Shiyan who lives in Thompson. Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday Dear Shiyan, Happy Birthday to you!!!! BOL!!!!!

Today was a real quiet day. We stayed home all day which I was happy about. We slept in, played with the computer, played with my toys, did some reading and watching TV. It is nice to have a quiet day once in awhile.

Mommy made a couple of new videos of me. She is getting frustrated with the quality of video that we are getting in the house with our digital camera and thinks she is going to have to start seriously looking at camcorders. Anyways there is one video of me eating my breakfast. I am a slow eater so Mommy says that video is about as exciting as watching paint dry. I don't know what she is talking about because my breakfast time is a very important part of my day. I love eating by the patio doors and then I can look outside while I eat. Then there is a video with me and a stuffed toy Schnauzer. This toy Schnauzer is about the same size as me and usually is up on Mommy's dresser and is not one of my toys. When I was a young puppy I was really scared of this Schnauzer. I am a big girl now and I am no longer afraid of it and I just wish it could turn into a real dog and really play with me. I am a quiet pup and as you will see I don't make much noise when I play. I really would like to have a playmate - hint, hint Mommy. Mommy says that I would have to take the good and the bad when it comes to having a playmate. I would have to share Mommy's attention and I would have to share my toys. I just don't understand why I would have to do that. The playmate should be a pup that only wants to play with me but doesn't play with my toys, doesn't eat my food and doesn't want attention from Mommy. I don't think that is too much to ask but Mommy seems to think that is not the way it would be. I will have to give this playmate thing some more thought.


A Few Things to Bark About!

It has been raining all day and it is suppose to rain all weekend. This sure isn't a good thing when you have a window smashed out of your car like we did. Mommy was driving around yesterday with a big piece of plastic over the window. She took our car in this morning to have the window fixed so we don't need that plastic any more. The nice people who fixed the window even cleaned up all the glass so now I can sit in the car again. We still have to get the dash repaired and a radio installed but Mommy says that can wait until she gets a day off work and can take the car in. Now we are going to have to be happy to drive in our car with no music. :(

I am in season again which surprised Mommy because I came in season early. Since I am going to doggy shows I can't be spayed. I just hate wearing my in season pants and I would rather be outside in the rain without my pants then in the house with pants. My Mommy has mellowed a bit about the pants because I only leave marks when I am sleeping and I only sleep on my doggy beds. She says I have to wear my pants if I want to sleep in bed but if I sleep in a doggy bed I don't have to. I sure love sleeping with Mommy but I don't know yet if I will be willing to wear my in season pants to sleep in bed.

Mommy has been feeding me lots of home cooked meals lately. I still eat some kibble but in addition I get 2/3 of a cup of homecooked food twice a day. I need to gain some weight so this additional food is for that purpose. I get potatoe, ground beef and vegetable mixture. Mommy has found that I am fussy even with this. I much prefer riced potatoes to mashed potatoes and for some reason I won't eat frozen vegetables that have been cooked. I will only eat fresh or tinned vegetables. Mommy had bought me a whole bag of frozen peas and carrots and I won't eat it so now it is for Mommy to eat. BOL!!! It is funny that Mommy gets my reject food!!! Mommy is going to cook some chicken pieces tomorrow so instead of ground beef I will be getting chicken. Yummy, yummy, I can't wait!
