Doggie Days

Mommy's Hero

Mommy says I am her hero! The other day she was getting some money out of the atm (to buy me new toys, I'm sure!). All of a sudden a strange man was standing at her car window. I knew he was not supposed to be there. I jumped over Mommy in the front seat and tried to get out through the window to get him. I was barking my most vicious bark because I did not want that man near my Mommy. Daddy wasn't with her and I knew it was my job to protect her. It worked and I scared the bad man away! He sure wasn't expecting me to come out of that car window! He ran off and Mommy says he will think twice before we tries to steal money again.
Mommy and Daddy say I'm a hero now. I like it. I got lots of love and attention!


The Doggie Spa

Mommy and Daddy let me stay at the Doggie Spa this weekend! It was so much fun. They have a swimming pool shaped like a bone! None of the other dogs got in the pool because it was cold outside, but that didn't stop me! I love to swim. I got to play with the other big dogs every day! The only bad thing was that I had to stay in the same room as my brother, and he was really getting on my nerves! For the most part he is ok, but 4 days in the same room as him was a little too much! I had fun but I was SOOOO glad when Mommy got there to pick me up! I was ready to come home. Mommy stopped by Petsmart on the way home and bought us some yummy cookies and some new toys. I haven't torn mine up yet, but I'm working on it!



"I have some bad news" Said the Vet

We went to see my doctor a couple of weeks ago and it made Mommy cry. I'm not sure what is going on, but I think it has something to do with "Hip Dysplasia". The vet said that a few times and Mommy didn't like it. Maybe that is why I am having trouble jumping on the bed and running. It hurts when I run and jump so I don't get to play frisbee anymore. I really like playing frisbee and chasing the tennis ball. Mommy and Daddy have been taking me on more walks though. I get to go on one every morning! And another one in the evening! I love to go on walks, so maybe it is ok that I can't play frisbee. I get to meet other people and dogs and pee in different places!! Mommy also gives me these funny "treats" every morning and evening but I don't get to eat them! She just opens my mouth, throws them in and then won't let me chew! They don't really have a taste though. I don't mind because I like to eat anything, even if it tastes bad and I think the treats make me feel better. Since Mommy started giving them to me my legs have felt a little better. I also got this strange new "toy" that helps me get in Mommy's truck. At least Mommy says it is a toy, but I don't really get to play with it so I think she is wrong. I think it is a ramp. She must not know how smart I am. I wasn't sure about the new ramp because I've always jumped up in the truck myself, but I guess Mommy and Daddy got the ramp for me since I can't jump well anymore. Once I figured it out I liked it. It makes it easy to get in and out so now I can go on car rides again!! I love car rides. Sometimes car rides lead to the PARK!! Of course sometimes they lead to the vet, and I HATE that. But I will take my chances that it might be a trip to the park. Mommy says my grandma and grandpa are coming to see me today. I am excited about that!! I love grandma and grandpa even though grandpa sometimes spanks me with a rolled up newspaper. But if I'm good he doesn't. I just have to not jump on anyone. I know jumping on people is bad, but I just get so excited! I am working on being a good dog all the time. Mommy kisses me and gives me the good treats when I am good. Well, I better take a nap so I can be ready to play when grandma and grandpa get here!
