Arrival Story:
Isabel and Rosie were both adopted from the Animal Protection Society of Durham. Isabel in September 2003, & Rosie in February of 2005. Both are special needs dogs. Isabel suffered from a life threatening case of separation anxiety which she has beaten. Rosie was abused and neglected by her first home. She's had to overcome a lot of food issues and fear anxiety. She has struggles sometimes but has really turned things around. She still can get nervous fear around strange people and dogs, but has really come a long way, and is a completely different dog from the one that was abandoned at the shelter, scared, nervous and skinny. Isabel and Rosie always stick up for each other and have really helped each other with their problems. Rosie helped Isabel get over her remaining anxieties about being alone. And Isabel has helped Rosie learn how to socialize, trust, and just be happy. Their bond is unbreakable.

Rosie and Isabel came together when Rosie was brought home from the Durham APS shelter. They liked each other when they met at the shelter and rode home together too. There was a bit of fighting initially. Rosie had been abused and underfed so she had major trust issues, and food issues. We weren't quite sure they were going to make it together, but they worked out their differences. Now they are best pals. Rosie is Isabel's devoted and butt kickin' Attorney General; Bobby to Isabel's Jack. Together they are saving the world from Hypocrisy at home and abroad. They are also fighting for animal justice as the Co-founders of President Isabel's Animal Abuse Commission. These two are best friends, peas in a pod, birds of a feather flockin' together. They are sisters of another mother. In fact, many folks assume they're litter mates because they are so close.

The Dynamic Duo Goes To Washington

That's right folks--The President and the Attorney General made a weekend trip to the nation's capital. It was mostly a leisure trip. We have never gotten to meet Dad's parents, and neither has Mama San, so we loaded up the car and drove up.

I: I had some presidential business to attend to; mainly urinating on the Rose Garden so that everyone still remembered who the President is, and then I had some Congressmen to bark at (slackers).

R: I didn't do anything official, though I did bark at a poodle.

We stayed at a very nice hotel that let us stay without crates. We had very deluxe accommodations, very close to the National Mall. Mostly we were excited to be able to meet Grandma and Grandpa. They were very impressed with how well we behaved, and how cute and soft we were. We thought they were very nice, and were glad we got to see them twice during our brief visit.

We crapped and peed our way through the city, ate, slept, and did some other stuff that is actually classified and covert kinda stuff. The kinda stuff that we'd have to silence people about if they found out so we won't discuss it here. Let's just say that once again the Dynamic Duo has gone and done boldly where no dog has gone before.

And just a point of fact: The Washington Monument is not really a giant bully stick, despite Rosie's hopes. Rats!

We're not really sure what that means, but it's part of the song so we sing it.

We went on a Christmas visit today to our friend Daisy's house. Mama San baked a zucchini bread last night, and Dad got Daisy a present, a great big purple cat hoot. Daisy's mom got a present too which we weren't interested in as it had nothing to do with us. Something involving cheese. But there wasn't actually any cheese there so again, that part of the visit was ignored with haste.

So we got to run around in Daisy's yard which was fun. Dad was a little surprised that we didn't take advantage of the space to run around more, but there it is. We did get VERY excited when the next door neighbors' dogs came outside. We went mad running along the fence line barking like crazy. Well, at first it was just their beagle who was very sweet and well mannered. We wanted to like it. Then their other dog came out and they were crazy and it was all down hill from there. Then we went back inside and got to eat more cookies. Sadly there was no zucchini bread for us which sucks. But we did get to eat lots of lamb lung, and more cookies. And we found out that Daisy may stay with us for a couple days in January which will be fun.

Now we're back home getting ready to nap. Napping is good, and our family is really good at it.

Happy Holidays!!


I'll be baack.

We got a late Chanukah present today: the FURMINATOR. We've been seeing this product everywhere we go it seems; at the vet, the pet store, the post office, our local army recruiter, our Congressman's fact, the Furminator seems to have become so ubiquitous that we see people walking down the street grooming themselves. It seemed like we were the only dogs that didn't have a Furminator. But now we have one and boy are we amazed. Sure, it's just #40 grooming comb, but it comes with a cool ergonomic handle that makes Dad feel like he's King of the Dog Stylists (oy). All we know is that it cuts our grooming time in half and the fur flies. So much in fact that Dad has resolved to only furminate us outside so that the house doesn't get filled with more fur than it already is, taxing the limits of our air circulation system.

Mama San just tried to put her slippers on and then there was all this cursing. Moo Cow peed on her slippers. He pees outside the box when the cleanliness level fails to meet his exacting standards (which are pretty darn stringent if you ask us). No matter what Mama San may say about our nosy bedhoggin' ways, she'll never be able to say that we peed in her slippers.
