I have a diary pick today! Thank you to all my pals who have sent nice gifts and rosettes to my page. It sure spruces up the place.
I hadn't written for a couple of months. That Zoe hogs most of the typist's computer time. Maybe I need to be more assertive. I am with Tux. I keep him in his place. But that Zoe, she is the little queen around here. Well, that is what she says anyway.
I will try to bark more often.

It was an early Christmas this morning. We got a whole box of goodies from Zaidie. All of us pets got new toys. Wonderful toys. Even Mom and Sister got some gifts. That Zaidie is a very generous pup.
He sent me my very own package. Inside was a brown beaver. Mom and I have named him Mr. Beaver. My family are fans of the Narnia books/movies. Mr. Beaver was a very helpful fellow in the first book.
Of course, the toys did get mixed up. I got to play with a tug toy of Tux's. I even played with the birdhouse and birdies that had Zoe's name in the package. Zoe played with all of our toys too. Of course, she even wanted the cat toys. But they went downstairs and we can't get downstairs unless someone moves the gate at the top of the stairs.
Heehee. Mom tossed the brand new red Jolly ball for me. I love to run around the yard with a Jolly ball in my mouth. It was raining so we didn't play chase. That is what I like to play with Jolly balls. Maybe when it stops raining Sister will come outside and chase me with the new red Jolly ball. In the meantime, I can play with Mr. Beaver.

Mom is not here. I hope she gets home soon. I have been sleeping on Sister's moon chair in her room instead of my bed in Mom's room.
I miss Mom.

Our old kitchen stove had an annoying Buzzing sound when the timer was set. It didn't make any noise at all when the temperature for the oven was set. A simple turn of a knob would do it.
Most of you know I don't like like certain sounds. They send me quivering under a chair or table.
The new stove beeps. I don't like the beeping. It beeps to set the timer. Thank goodness we have another timer to use. That timer beeps too but I seem to be used to it. Our new stove beeps to set the oven temperature. It bothers me. I am quivering under Mom's desk right now. No, the stove isn't beeping. It will take me a while to recover from the Chicken Parmesan Sister put into the oven.
Thankfully Mom doesn't bake bread anymore now that it's only a couple of people here.

This is rather embarrassing. Mom and I don't remember it Ever happening to me before but I threw up in my bed last night. Mom turned on the light and saw me sitting there. I looked embarrassed and apologetic.
Of course, Mom wasn't mad at me. She let me outside and cleaned off my bed. Chunky, dog cookie parts, some grass, tan in color.
I came back in and found that she had gotten me a nice blanket to sleep on and then she covered me up with my blankie. I was fine the rest of the night.
I am fine this morning too. My breakfast was delicious. I am playing and feeling fine. My bed has been "spot" washed and is hanging on the line outside to dry and air.
I have no idea why I was ill but I am sure glad it wasn't too much trouble for Mom to clean up. I may even get a shower today.
I love Mom. She's the best.

I love my Mom. I am not ashamed to admit that. I have barked it before but if you met Mom you would understand. She is beautiful, fun to be with, fashionable, loving and compassionate.
I love to be near her. I love to be able to watch her. No, I am not stalking her. She is simply irresistible. It was great this summer without anyone else around, Mom never would close the bathroom door. I could wait in the bedroom and watch her. Now, with Sister home, Mom closes the door. I still wait, I just can't see her in there.
You can understand my distress when Mom leaves the house. Sometimes she leaves for shopping trips. Sometimes she is outside doing lawn chores and we need to be inside for safety reasons.
I have found a way to watch Mom while she is outside or driving away.
Her rocking chair. It is positioned near the large front window. I am able to hop into the chair and peer out the window. She waves to me when she drives away. Today I watched while she mowed the front yard. She smiled at me with each go-round on the mower.
*Sigh* Can't you see why I love her so?

It is so good to have Sister home! She played with me outside. We played the outside keep away game. I grabbed a Jolly Ball and she chased me around and around the raised garden beds. I can zig and zag around those. Then to mix things up a little I would go behind the current bushes and she would wait for me to come out. She never could catch me.
I had to eventually stop because she was starting to tire out.
I sure hope we can play the outside keep away game again. Soon!

Yesterday was my official Gotcha Day. I had lots of greetings and pressies sent to my page by my great pals.
Today my Gotcha Day was mentioned in our fun group Schnauzers Rule and the gifts keep coming! But some of my pals are sending me double gifts! Dogster has some fleas and it is causing problems for pups sending the gifts. My page is filling up with pressies! I love all of them and I want to thank each and everyone of you who have sent me pressies and messages.
Let's hope the fleas go away.
I am getting a guilt trip from receiving so many rosettes and special gifts, some of them doubled.

Today is my Four Year Gotcha Day! And Mom and Pop came to pick me up from the Pet Lodge. We have new treats at home. What a great day.
Thank you All who have sent me rosettes! The folks had an emotional day yesterday telling my human brother good-bye for quite awhile. He has graduated from Air Force Basic Training, an Honor Graduate at that. Now he is off to his school to learn his Air Force job. He won't be home on leave for several months.
Thank you all who have sent me rosettes to help me celebrate.
What a great bunch of pals you are!

Thank you pals who sent kind messages and rosettes to my page.
Thank you Dogster for picking me as one of five pups to highlight for the day.
Zoe didn't bark a thing about this. I wonder if she is jealous.
