I'm going to have a *bigger* sister

She may be young, but she's gonna be a bruiser. Izzy went for her final parvo and distemper vaccines yesterday and she is a whopping 11 lbs.! She is not quite 4 months yet, so humph, she will be bigger than me! I am 17 lbs. and mommy says that Izzy is only a bit shorter than me. I swear the child grows millimeters each night! What are they feeding her anyway? What's that? Grain-free puppy food called "Now"?! Get rid of it, I say! It's working too good! I wanted a little sister not a big one!

Humph!

 

My name is Rudy, and I am a barker

I am a barker extraordinaire and I bark for good reason! I am a schnauzer for goodness sake! I bark for all good reasons including but not limited to suspicious people walking up the street, any wheels (bike, skateboard, wheelies, rollerblades), runners, mailmen, flyer delivery boys, suspect vehicles, loud noises, neighbours, other dogs, cats, mice, squirrels...

So, why am I worried? The word from the dogpark is that there is this super bad supersonic squealy thing that only dogs can hear arriving at my good pals Lexie and Buddy's house. (whispers) What if Mommy gets one for MY house? I enjoy barking! I'm good at it! And Mommy stopped trying to get me to stop! The pennies in the can didn't work, the spray bottle only worked a while, and now with Izzy in the mix, if she joins in we can make a real noise!!!

Lexie and Buddy, we are going to help. I don't know who we're gonna call, Congress? Parliament? The Queen? Ghostbusters? But we will call someone! Something must be done!

Dear readers, let me know if you have one of these things in your house. Have you managed to destroy the thing? I hope so! Meanwhile, if it arrives at your house, there's a plan. Put on the guilt - and bad. Dive under the couch when it turns on and cry. Shake if you can. Come out only for good treats and then retreat again. Maybe your parentals will feel so bad they'll throw it out???!!!

Sisters in solidarity.
Rudy and Izzy

fooled mommy again!

Mommy says schnauzers are smart, but that maybe I am too smart for my own good! As you know I am taking antibiotic pills for the scratch infection I gave myself with those yucky allergies. Well, my ears are doing a bit better, but not for lack of me fighting every pill and every ear drop! Those drops are the worst!

Well, I was doing okay with the pill taking for days 1,2,3. Mommy would hide the pill (it's a yucky flavour, and not even coated!) in a chicken flavoured pill pocket. I thought that was pretty nifty! She would jam the pill in there and make it like a package. She was sure I could not get the pill out, and the pill pocket would cover the taste! As I said, I put up with this for the first few days. But today, I ate my pill pocket in front of her, and then went into the living room. Mommy found the spit out antibiotic. I showed her! I gently ate the pill pocket AROUND the pill, and spit that sucker out!

Sheesh Mommy, it tastes bad! We schnauzies have excellent taste buds.


(Mommy here. Rudy crunched the pill in half, so I put each half in a pill pocket, and fed them to her. Then I opened her mouth to make sure she swallowed them! Then she got a tiny taste of chicken for a reward. It's going to be a long 6 days!)

 

oh dear!

Allergies, allergies! Mommy noticed I was not comfortable the past few days, and I have even scratched myself under my chin and made it bleed in a few places! I was licking my paws a lot too. Mommy took me to the vet, and it's a good thing, as a few spots of skin are starting to get infected. Nice Dr. Beth put me on antibiotics for my skin, and gave me some special shampoo to bath in, to get rid of some of the crusties that has built up under my fur. I also got eye and ear drops because my ears are inflamed and my right eye is red and leaky. And I got a prescription of hydroxizine for my allergies. The vet (who LOVES me) said I will start to feel better real soon, and that we are going to continue the allergy medicine all summer, cause we don't want this to happen again!

Mommy cried. Sheesh, she's such a worry wart. I'm gonna be fine, ma! It's all that rolling around in the grass with Izzy that got me so allergic; I never had anyone to roll around in the grass with before!

I joined a Dogster group called Zealie lotto, and oh MY dog, I won! I won 100 zealies as top prize of this week's draw! There is a draw every week, and when you enter, you sign over 5 zealies to the administrator. There are 30 dogsters/catsters allowed per draw. There is a top prize and a 2nd prize. Plus you get a nifty bumper sticker. I still can't believe I won! How awesome is that!?

bark to you soon,
love Rudy

 

Izzy is coming tomorrow!

(By Rudy's mommy Sarah)

Well, our 2nd baby schnauzer is coming tomorrow. It's hard to believe that not quite two years ago, we drove to PEI to pick Rudy up. We knew that we would get her a playmate eventually, and we thought it would be nice to get another puppy from the breeder that we got Rudy from. They are really nice people, and were more than happy to oblige us to keep Rudy's tail intact. Now the breeder won't dock any tails!

That being said, I want all my dear Dogster friends to know that we were/are on a waiting list for a schanuzer at one of the local adoption agencies, should one ever come up. As a family, we want schnauzers, because they don't shed, and we are slightly allergic. We think adopting is so admirable, and if there was a schnauzer rescue nearby, we would have used it, but there is none in this area of the country. We think anyone who adopts a pup/dog who was abused/neglected/given up, are the best people in the world!!!! We wish we could adopt.

We love you all, and we will update soon!
Sarah

 

It was a good week!

Yesterday I went to doggie country camp with my friend Jason. Jason is a big dog lover, and he takes in dogs to his house which has lots of land (fenced in), so they can have a big playdate. He watches over us, feeds us, gives us water, and does grooming too, if you need. He supervises our play, and sometimes we go on field trips, like yesterday, when we went to the beach. It was great fun, and when I got home I was tired!

Today Mommy and I walked to the mailbox to get the mail (it's down the street from us), and there were two pieces of mail for me! The first was a birthday card from my dear friends Rocky and Sarge. The card had a dog on it, of course, a lab like Rocky. It was really nice. The second piece of mail was a package, from my bestest Canadian pal, Jelly! With affie wags and kisses, Jelly sent me a new pink loofah dog and a box of local peanut butter and Saskatoon berry biscuits, all the way from Winnipeg! Jelly and her mom are so nice to think of me, and get me a present for my birthday!


Today I'm going around the bay with Mama Deb to see Nanny! I will be back on Sunday. It is always nice to go out there, because I get lots of attention!

bark to you all later!
Rudy
