March 17th 2008 9:12 pm
[ Leave A Comment ]

We had a boring St Patricks Day.... nothing exciting today.... cept.... tonight while mom was taking her bathy... (she always lets me and lula hang out in the bathroom with her when she takes a bathy) while mom was relaxing in the bathytub... she heard this "horrible racket" coming from behind the bathytub wall...sounded like someone was tipping over the plastic hamper? She called out..... "Luuuula?" "Luuuuula?" Luuuuuuuuuuuuula!" and out around the corner Lil Lula came prancing by with mom florescent green undies (in honor of St P's day!) in her mouth!!! Mom said "Lula... how did you get those out of the hamper???" (but she was laughing) she got out of the bathytub and grabbed the "green undies" from Lula, tossed them back in the plastic hamper and got back in the bathytub. She hears another "horrible racket" (like someone tipping over a plastic hamper) and looks over behind the wall (crainen her necky) and see's Me and Lula pulling her undies out through the holes in the plastic hamper.... there was like 3 or 4 undies poken out of different holes in different colors... one for each day of the week... er... um.... guess it's almost time for mom to do laundry huh? She's runnen out of colors! Heheheh! A fun ending to a rather boring St. Patricks day!

Last saturday night I got to go to a people halloween party - I was part of my mom's costume - she was dressed as a native american and I was a cowboy. It was really fun I got lots of pets and secret treats but there was some scarey stuff there too. There was a bloody leg sticking out of the bathtub, and a ghost that flew back and forth across the patio, and a screaming face on the wall and a laughing (scarey) face on the wall, and a giant spider climbing up the web and a walking hand and alot of scarey monsters it didn't really bother me tho - because ..... I'm tuff! I'm very gratefull my mom carried me most of the time because there was a bunch of people dancing around while listening to this very good dance music! (I wouldn't have lasted 3 seconds on the floor) Mashed chihuahua! Although the music did set my (little) feet a tappen! There was only 1 other dog there her name was Abby and she lived there - poor thing didn't even have a costume - and she was locked behind this little gate. I tried to talk to her but my mom kept shushing me! "Quiet Ratty!! No barking!" I was only being friendly! I wish I had an extra costume for her to wear! She was a little bit bigger then me tho... a Pit Bull.

Gotta go for now!!!

Love,
Ratty

Hullo! Haven't had much to say lately, but I felt I should write an entry. My mom has decided to teach me how to behave in public so she can take me around other dogs. (I get excited and "greet" everydog I see) So she took me to petsmart this morning. At first I was "greeting" everyone excitedly and my mom was saying "no! stop barking!" and she made a tiny muzzle with her fingers and held my mouth shut. After about 37 times I finally started to catch on and by the time we left I was "perfectly behaved". There was another lady with a large baby dog with the same problem (I think maybe he saw me and got excited - I'm a bad influence) and he was doing better by the time they left also. I'm also a good influence. My big brother Otto doesn't hardly ever "greet" (bark) other dogs. Some day I hope to be just like him!

Barkingly,
Ratty

 

pet store adventures

Me and my mom went shopping this morning. First we went to Nordstroms (boring - but I don't let my mom know) and then we went all the way to the end of the mall to the pets store.... where my mom proceeded to try on me, about 37 different dog costumes! worse then nordstroms! first I was "Dogzilla" then I was a bigger "dogzilla" (first one was to tight and i couldn't move) then I was a couple different sizes of "cowboy" my mom decided on "cowboy" I got to check out the toys and stuff tho - that was fun. I got quacked at, moo'd at, monkey soundsd at, elephant soundsd at, girraffs, gorillas, chickees - you name it! I felt like i was at the zoo (or a barnyard). After all this my mom decided to try more clothes on me - just regular clothes for everyday - more stretching and arm pulling and tail yanking and suffocating and strangling. Why me? Why not otto? German Shepherds look cute in costumes and clothes. I know... Otto can be my horse!!!! My mom can buy a saddle for him and I can ride him!!!!!!!! we can be "the Dog Ranger and Otto" where can we find him a saddle? hmmmmmmmm....

over and out,

Morning pages - at night...

Hi. I haven't written anything lately because I've been busy over the big holiday weekend. My mom had today off and since it was so dang hot out I got to be in the house all day!!!! yay!!!! Except when my mom went to the store I had to be locked in the bathroom with "kitty mommy"... "I mean like... back off chick!!!!" Kitty mommy sometimes carries the "kitty mommy" role a little too far! Sometimes my mom takes my brother Otto hiking. Once she let me come along also... my feet never touched the ground (which is fine with me) between my mom and her 2 friends carrying me. Everything was fine until I saw this big-huge ......thing! with a person sitting on it's back!!!! So I (of course) had to shout to Otto "Look!!!! to your left!!!! What is that big thing?!!! and my mom's friend tried to make me be quiet, and then my mom tried to make me be quiet (which maybe was a little difficult because she was trying to control Otto who up until I started flapping my lips -was behaving quite well off leash, and he was starting to get excited about the big-huge...thing!). Then the big-huge.....thing! started kind of jumping around on it's back legs ... I guess.... showing off how big and huge it was. Finally my mom got Otto (and me) to shut up, and the big-huge.... thing! went on it's way. Well anyways, my mom decided to never take me hiking ever again. She takes me shopping to real nice indoor, air conditioned places where beeootifullll ladies pet me and kiss me and talk to me. More my style (ahem!). Well tonight at sunset she took me and Otto on a drive up to Chantry Flats (in the mountains of arcadia) we drove and drove and drove and drove around all these curvy roads - and my mom kept pointing out the window and saying how beautiful!! look at the view!! (I guess people like that kind of stuff - I was just trying to not barf). Otto wasn't too enthused either. We drove all the way to where the trails are then we turned around and went home. I guess we were just scoping it out for future reference. I could tell Otto was disapointed (slightly green-but disapointed). I just hope if I get to go hiking there they don't have any of the big...huge things!

 

Day 3..... (1/2)

uh oh.... Mom was being niced and took me and Otto to Petsmart tonight. I got to ride in the shopping cart and Otto had to walk along the side (on his leash) I saw another little brown dog and I can't help it!!! I got excited and I shouted to Otto "look!! look!! Look!! a dog! Over there!" and Mom told me to be quiet very sternly and she tried to muzzle my mouth with her hand. I had to keep shouting "Look! Over there! a dog!!" and Mom kept telling me to be quiet - almost yelling at me. Then a bunch of people were laughing at me so Otto got jealous and he started shouting "I see the dog!" "what should I do now?" "is he a friend?" and a bunch of people made their eyebrows go down like they were mad or something. Poor mom - she tried to make us be quiet...but we were excited!!!! dang! So she made us go sit in the car and she went back inside and finished shopping. I'm very sorry I made mom mad and embarassed... next time I promise I won't shout - even if I see 3 dogs!

Someone sure does think he's hot stuff... just because he got invited to join a stupid "big boys" club. well I say "big deal!". I could join a club also - if I wanted to, I just don't have time right now... I'm really busy you know - eating bugs in the back yard, chasing birdies, wrestling with "kitty mommy" and I also have to be ready for mom if she needs me to go shopping with her.... Wouldn't want her to have to go alone - there is alot of weirdos out there!!!! I need to protect her!

 

My Tail of Devotion for RATTY

August 31st 2006 9:01 pm

My sweet baby Ratty. When Ratty was about 1-1/2 years old he went in the neighbors yard (he dug under the fence) and tried to beat up 2 big dogs - one was a Pit Bull and the other was a mixed breed of some kind. I was in the house and I heard his pitiful screams and I went running! I tried to jump over a 6 foot high fence (but my mom protection adrenaline didn't extend that far) my neighbors ran out and got their dogs off of Ratty and Ratty went squealing back under the fence to his own yard. I ran home and tried to pick him up but he would scream every time I tried to touch him - luckily he's somewhat crate trained so I put his crate out there and he crawled into it. I called the pet emergency people and they asked me how he looked & what he was doing etc. and they said he was probably ok & to wait till morning and take him to his regular doctor - which I did. The doctor had to anesthesize him and check him for injuries (risky if he was in shock) and he ended up with two big tubes in his tummy for drainage of his puncture wounds. He stayed in his "beddy" for about a week then out of nowhere I got appendicitis and had to go to the hospital for a week. My son took care of ratty until I came home. When I got home Ratty was not doing well, I guess it was a double trauma - the attack then the missing mom. I spent the next 3 days sitting on the couch with him next to me and we both healed good as new. My lucky Ratty (under 5 lbs) survived a Pit Bull attach! Maybe all his practace fighting with his big brother Otto (gsd) paid off!!!

Day 2....

Woke up bright and early (was up late posing for the camera - my mom took a million pictures of me while I was trying to sleep). Went out back to visit otto and water the grass (haha! yellow water=yellow grass). Spent some time barking at the birdies - lots of birdies out there, they won't let me get close to them - I can't imagine why??? I think my mom has to go to work today - she just has that "smell" on her which means I'm going to try as hard as I can to stay outside with my friends (otto and birdies)- when mom tries to pick me up to go inside - I'm going to dart to the left real fast, then dart to the right real fast, then... when she finally corners me... I'll roll over and let her pick me up and pretend I wanted her to catch me all along! I hate it when she makes me stay in the bathroom with kitty mommy all day, so what if I have a comfy bed, water, toys, food, air conditioning and "kitty mommy/babysitter" to keep me company? (she usually hangs out in her "shelf" where I can't reach her for snuggling and wrestling). Maybe my mom will take me shopping when she gets off work tonight?!? That would be cool - something to look forward too.

Over and out for now!!
