I have not growled about that little grooming table lately but I will growl about it again today. When Mommy got home she put that little table up in the living room and sat in her comfy chair watching TV and grooming me. This is a little too easy for my liking! She can now sit in comfort and channel surf while she is grooming me.!!! That little table folds down so small that she keeps it handy upstairs all the time. I got no applications for the position of robber to steal this table - this table is so terrible even the robbers don't want it! My second plan was to get the garbage guys to take it but since Jennifer went to the Bridge I don't have anypup to help me with this plan so that won't work either. So for now it looks like I am going to have to tolerate getting tortured on that table!
After I got tortured on the grooming table Mommy asked me if I wanted to go for a car ride. Yahoo, I never say no to a car ride. We went to agility classes and I sure had a good time. First we were jumping small courses made up of only bar jumps. The bar jumps were moved into different spots and I was off leash and I had to follow Mommy's instruction as to which jump to jump because it changed every time I jumped. That sure was fun. Then we practiced going into the tunnel really fast, I sure liked that. Then we practiced the weave poles and I am getting pretty good. Mommy said we are not worrying about speed right now but accuracy. After that we did a small course that consisted of tunnels, bar jumps and weave poles. Then the class was over. That hour sure goes too fast!
I was sure looking forward to tomorrow because tomorrow is Saturday. Then it all got ruined because Mommy told me she had to go to work. She had been at a Convention all day Thursday and Friday and she said she has to go to it again on Saturday. Grrrrr..... this does not make me very happy.

I just can't figure it out pups but my toys are in the computer. I hear them crying to me in the computer and it makes me so sad. First I hear Eeyore and I get worried and I go and run to get him. Yep, he is still in my house but why is he in the computer??? Then I hear my bunny and I do the same thing and go and find my bunny. Yep, my bunny is here too! Then right after that I hear my Monkey and I take off to look for my Monkey. Thank dog, my Monkey is here safe and sound! Sometimes I even hear my loofa dog squeek and I go and make sure he is safe. If all that isn't enough I hear my Mommy's voice and her lips aren't moving but she is talking through the computer. Maybe she has learned how to be a ventriloquist??? Boy, that is a big word for me but that is what I think must have happened! Yep, she has to be a ventriloquist. I just can't figure out about my toys! Have they all learned how to be ventriloquists too???????

Yes pups we have solved the problem about the invisible butterflies. I guess I should say that Mommy solved the problem and I am so proud of her that she came up with the solution all by herself. Even computer people that Mommy knew didn't have the answer but Mommy thought and thought about it for the past few days. She said at work today she suddenly got the solution and it came to her like a bolt of lighting!!! BOL! She decided that it could be the browser that we were using and that she would try a different one when she got home. We had been using Avant Browser and she tried Internet Explorer and guess what pups??? It worked!!!! Yahoo, I can finally see all those pretty butterflies!!! Now Mommy is mumbling about having to find a different browser that will work. She was reading on the Internet today about how Internet Explorer is one of the worst for bad people to be able to get identity off the computer with so she wants to use something else. I am just a pup and I don't care about any of this, all I want to do is see the butterflies!!!
Today was a typical work day with Mommy going to work. This evening she has been adding more features to my site. Now I have a pretty duckie cursor and we have a little box that tells you our time and temperature. Mommy thought that some of my readers would really appreciate having the temperature thingy there because we had lots of questions about our weather this winter from pups. Mommy is so proud that she got one that is in F and C so all pups will understand what it is saying. Now pups you will be able to see when I am freezing and feel sorry for me!
I think Mommy has spend enough time on this computer and I am going to drag her away to play with me. Bark at you later!

Today was another great day. Mommy was home from work again. Wow, I just couldn't believe that she would be home four days in a row! She did go out in the afternoon for awhile and left me at home alone but that is okay because I needed to catch up on some sleep. I love having Mommy at home but it makes my job much harder keeping track of her and I don't get my beauty sleep like I usually do! BOL!
As you can see Mommy changed my main page. There is a reason for all the changes which I will explain. First, the background which now is jellybeans. Mommy calls me her "little jellybean" and always tells me that black is her favourite flavour of jellybean. So jellybeans must be a real good thing so I think it is great to have jellybeans on my page. Then there is my rubber duckie song that I just love. I love, love, love squeaky toys so it sure is music in my ears to hear all that squeaking in the song. I also love my duckie so it is appropriate to have a duckie song. I just ignore the bath part because I don't like baths but you can't have everything!
Did you see my video with my booties on???? Mommy was being real mean to me there. It is warmer out and I don't have to wear booties but Mommy put them on my feet just to make a video so all the humans could laugh at me. That isn't very nice! Don't you think that was very mean?? I don't like my boots very much and I also don't like being confined to that concrete area. Mommy won't let me go in the big yard until all the snow melts and it is cleaned up. Spring is sure slow this year and I sure hope I get into the yard soon.

Happy Easter everypup! I hope you had a real nice day.
I had a really good couple of days and I have so much to bark about. That bad Mommy got home too late last night to type for me so now I have to do two days worth of diary entries in one. I wonder if I should fire Mommy as my typist and get a new typist??? Whatever, lets not worry about this now and lets bark about my days.
Yesterday was Mommy's birthday and I was such a good pup. In the morning I was sleeping curled right up with Mommy and I really encouraged her to sleep in. If you can't sleep in on your birthday then when can you? Everytime Mommy moved I would snuggle closer to her and I think I was successful and we slept for longer. I then gave Mommy lots of affie kisses and hugs. In the morning I played with her with my toys and I even let her win some of the games. I was being such a good pup for Mommy's birthday! In the afternoon Grandpa came over and they went out for awhile. After that they came back and sat and visited for awhile which I really liked. I made sure I entertained them very well with my toys. Mommy then left me at home and went out for supper. I was not too impressed with this part! I tried so hard to be cute all day and then Mommy goes out to eat and leaves me at home. She got home real late pups and I have to tattle on her and tell you it was 2 am when she got home. She had an ice cream cake for her birthday and she brought the left- overs home. She won't even let me have much of this because it is mostly chocolate. I do get to have a couple of laps of the vanilla part.
Today was Easter and I had a great time again. The Easter Bunny came and brought me a nice little basket. I got some of my favourite bagels, a goofy looking bunny that sings and a big bone shaped organic cookie. I will have to get Mommy to put a picture on my site with me and my Easter basket. It was a nice day and I spent lots of time outside playing. We had some company and Mommy made a really nice turkey dinner. Yummy, yummy!
I just can't believe how "techie" my Mommy is getting! BOL!!! She put a beautiful guest book up on both Jennifer's and my page. Please sign it pups and add your photo! I love looking at pictures of all the pups that look at my page. Then Mommy made our first video which was a hoot! To begin with Mommy had never made a video before and she had to read the book that came with our camera. Then she decided she didn't want to use the memory card for the camera that we use for pictures in case something went wrong. So she used the little memory card that came with the camera. Since it doesn't have much memory she did our video with a small number of pixels which I have no idea what that is. The end result is it is kind of grainy and Mommy says we will have to take a higher quality of video in the future. She wants to purchase another memory card that we will use just for videos that has much more memory. Regardless I think you got a pretty good look at three of my toys and your first view of me in action. I am an action kind of a pup. Watch my video and you will see the big basket that I have filled with toys. There are 80 toys in there pups! What do you think of our first video???

Today was a really great day. Mommy and I stayed home today and had a great time. We relaxed, had an afternoon nap and played with my toys. It doesn't get any better then that! Mommy said that today was Good Friday and I would say every Friday is a good Friday because it is the end of the working week. Today was an extra Good Friday because Mommy was home.
I am so excited because tomorrow is Mommy's birthday. Mommy won't let me tell you how old she is and I had better keep my lips sealed if I want the Easter Bunny to come to see me. I am just a little pup so I don't have any money to buy her a gift and even if I did I can't get out to the store by myself. I have other things I can give her. I am going to give Mommy extra special affie kisses and hugs tomorrow. I am also going to play nice games with her and I will even let her win even though I could win. Doesn't that sound nice pups?
I am still upset because I can't see the pretty butterfly rosettes. My pal Zoe had to tell me about the butterfly rosettes that pups had given me. Mommy will see them at work on Tuesday and I think she should take me too so I can see them. I have p-mailed Dogster to see if they have any idea why I can't see the pretty butterflies. Mommy has also e-mailed her computer friend. I hope we solve this mystery soon.

As you can see from the title of this entry I have a few things to bark about today.
Mommy brought Jennifer's ashes home today after work. They are in a pretty white jar with flowers on it. Mommy and I said a little prayer for Jennifer and then we placed her ashes in our beautiful corner curio cabinet. This cabinet is full of schnauzer plates, ornaments and trophies. Many of these were won by some of Jennifer's relatives. For example, one cute little Red River cart was won by Jennifer's Great Grandmother when she won best puppy in a terrier speciality. Beside the curio cabinet, on the wall is a beautiful picture of Jennifer's Great Grandmother. Jennifer's little jar looks so nice in the cabinet and I know she would be very pleased with her place of honour. I will pause everytime I pass that cabinet and think of Jennifer. Check out Jennifer diary because she explained the history behind that curio cabinet.
My cousin Shiyan has joined Dogster. Please check her page out. I don't think her Mommy is going to spend as much time on her page as my Mommy does on mine but I am still glad she is here. My Mommy and her Mommy are sisters.
I am having a real big problem pups and I don't know what is wrong. I can't see any of the beautiful butterfly rosettes on my computer. Mommy says that she can see them on her computer at work and Shiyan can see them on her computer. I want to see them too. Does any pup know why we are not able to see them??

Mommy came home from work today and she was holding a bag. I love bags because quite often it means there is something in there for me. I was so excited and just had to check out what was in that bag. Yahoo, it is for me! I got a new toy and a new sample of doggy food. First we will bark about the toy. It is a little stuffed Eeyore and is so cute and soft and feels so nice on my mouth. I just love Eeyore and I played and played with him. One of the best things about him is that he makes noises when the toy hits the ground. Sometimes he even starts to make noises if I shake him hard enough. I just love my new Eeyore.
Mommy bought me a small bag of a new food that she wanted me to try. It is called Orifen. It has no grain, 70% meat and 30% fruits and vegetables. We tried mixing some in my regular kibble tonight and I thought it was pretty yummy! Mommy says it is a real healthy food for me so hopefully I will continue to like it.
I just couldn't believe what Mommy said today. She said I have too many toys! I just couldn't believe my ears, how could a pup have too many toys??? I am a good pup and never ruin my toys so it only stands to reason that I would have lots of toys. Mommy was talking about giving some away and maybe we should start rotating the toys that are out. I don't think that is a very good idea because I love all my toys and I want them all out so I can pick which one I want to play with. What do you think pups? I will get Mommy to count my toys and I will report back to you about how many toys I have.

Today was a pretty normal day. Mommy went to work and I stayed home. Now I am all alone in the house by myself. I am a big brave girl so it seemed strange but I was okay.
I know Mommy misses Jennifer lots. She is always calling me Jennifer and Jen and she never used to do that. Mommy's friend said that is because Jennifer hasn't fully made the transition to the Bridge yet and that she is still around here. Sometimes we think we hear her or first thing in the morning Mommy was going to go and check on her. Mommy said that she is also going through some guilt feelings and some anger feelings. She said that is okay because that is just the stages in grieving.
I am going through my own griefing although I am not showing it much. The big thing for me is that I am not sleeping with Mommy at night but I sleep in Jennifer's bed. Jennifer always slept in a doggy bed in the bedroom by the door. There is a picture in her photo album of her in her bed. She liked it there and didn't want to sleep in bed. I would normally sleep with Mommy 95% of the time and with Jennifer 5% of the time. Mommy just let me choose what I wanted to do. Now I am sleeping in Jennifer's bed every night and I join Mommy in bed about 4 am. Mommy couldn't figure out why I would want to do that and she thought and thought about it. Mommy it is real obvious to me and I don't know why it isn't to you! I miss Jennifer and the bed smells like her and when I cuddle up in the bed I am pretending that I am sleeping with her. I can just close my eyes and I think I am with Jennifer. Doesn't that make sense to you pups?
Thanks again to all the pups and their pawrents for all their warm wishes and support. We just love every p-mail, bone, rosette, star and pup pal request. Mommy is getting so much strength from your messages and she has read every one. She is behind in her correspondence and hopes to be able to answer every pup in the next few days.
We have heard from a few pups who have tried my "find the monkey" game. I am so glad that you are enjoying it. I just love playing that game.

Today was a better day for us. Mommy said we have to live a normal life because that is what Jennifer would want us to do. I think I am starting to understand that Jennifer won't be coming home.
Mommy went out with a friend late this morning for breakfast. I am glad she is getting out because it is hard on Mommy because she has lived with Jennifer for over 16 years. She went to some place in our City called The Forks. I have never been there but Mommy says she likes it. They had breakfast and then they looked around all the little shops. There used to be a really nice doggy boutique in there but Mommy found out it has moved. :( That kind of made me sad because I thought Mommy might find some great presents for me. She did find out where they moved and she said that she will take me there. Yahoo!
When Mommy got home she played a new game with me and I can sure tell you it is fun! We call our new game "Find the monkey". What happens is Mommy hides my monkey and I have to find it. First Mommy tells me to "hide your eyes". That means I have to go into the computer room and wait while she hides the monkey in another part of the house. She also says "no cheating Jelly" which means I can't sneak out of the computer room until she is ready. Mommy then comes back to the computer room and says, "Find the monkey". I go with a zoom into the living room and search for my monkey. When I find it Mommy claps and plays tuggy with me with the monkey. We then repeat the whole thing. Mommy says at first she was hiding the monkey in easy places to find but after a few tries she started to hide my monkey in harder and harder places to find. I found my monkey every time! Do you think I am a smart pup?
