So last month (December the 9th) I turned 9 years old and I have now offically been with my family for 8 years! Can't believe it! I got several special treats and extra attention and all of my great dogster pals helped me celebrate by giving me wonderful rosettes & special gifts! I am just finding time to thank them but I really apreciate it and want to say thank you so much! You guys are the best!
I now this is a little late but I just wanted to thank dogster HQ for awarding the amazing honor of dog of the week! It was such a surprise and I had such a wonderful week! I would also like to thank all my great pals who helped me celebrate with their sweet rosettes, stars, special gifts, messages, comments, and pictures. It really meant it a lot and I am lucky to have such spectacular pals!
Everyone who helped me celebrate should have reseved (or will be shortly) a thank you but I will like to give an extra shout out to some extra special pups. One would be the Roo Crew who have always been there for me and gave me an super sweet gift of 25 zealies for my dotw honor! Thanks again Roos, you are the best!
The other would be the lovely Missy who not only gave me a pretty star on my page but also started a thread in plus fun in my honor! What a sweetheart!
A week after my special honor I learned that the my bud Todd picked me as that week's Plus Fun Star of the Week! And then the week after that I was chosen as Light of the Week in the group light a candle! I am one lucky pup!
Thanks again pals! What would I do without you guys?!
Today three of mom's cousins came over to stay for about three days. Which doesn't bother me, I love Lucas, Parker & Emma. I greeted them all with happy wags and loving kisses but then he walked through the door.....
That goofy smile on his face, his long clumsy & wigginling body and that annoying long tail smacking me in the face every five seconds. Baxter. He gets to stay with us for the weekend also, yeah. Not. I am not nor will I ever be a fan of that 1 year old nuisance. I have known him since his parents & human siblings got him almost a year ago when he was I think a month old and mom always thought he would grow on me. Hah! She should have known, I am her "grumpy old man" after all. Even though she has tried so very hard to socialize me I still don't like a lot of other dogs. Though I have gotten better with adults but still loath puppies (which is odd because I was a father of two when I came to the shelter!).
Anywho I wasn't very happy with mom because it has just been a few days since Lacey (aka "the pug") went home after spending last weekend with us when her fam. went out of town. She is of course a puppy also. I have been really good about putting up with the "babies" but they have been pushing it majorly. Both Baxter & Lacey have taken a liking to my chew bones. MY beloved chews! MINE! And mom tried to give Baxter his own chew but no he wanted my favorite one (at the moment). Of course, that little booger.
And today our neighbor & good friend Marylynn came over, but with a suprise. A little 12week old fluff-ball of a puppy named Henry. Mom ran & greeted Mary and scooped up the red and white lasha-poo who licked her nose with a thousand puppy breathe kisses. Mom knew that the puppy was Mary's "grandpuppy" (her son Jared & new daughter in law's pup) because they had gone into the shelter mom volunteers at looking for a baby a few times. They ended up getting him from a petstore (which mom wasn't very happy with, but didn't say anything) 2 weeks ago. Mom & the Lori said that is probably what I looked like as a puppy (though since I am part basset I was probably longer and had a bigger head and feet). Mary & thelori talked for a bit while mum showed Henry to us pups I could care less of the little thing, Josh kept trying to be all "I am the alpha bow down to me" and Baxter was kinda scared of the moving squeaky toy that kept trying to play with him. She then showed Henry to the human boys, and after that brought him up the another one of our neighbors (owners of Lacey) to show the human girls & see what the pug would think. Of course the two pup fell in love and played like crazy. Then mom brought Henry back down and he actually tried to play with moi! Crazy wipper snapper.
Well I have to go, it has been a long day of putting up with puppies.
