Dog in heat!

I'm not sure what has gotten into the male dogs of my 'hood. For a couple of days now they just can't get enough of me! (my humps, my humps, my lovely doggie humps!)
They bark, beg, chase, run, jump, howl, cry, whimper, smell and follow after me.
Ma & pops have been having lots of trouble keeping they away and even dear Aullido has been trying to get them off me. It's strange 'cause he's the only one who doesn't have all that strange behavior... maybe he thinks I'm fat!!!
Anyways, I have been feeling really popular, like a coke in the middle of the desert! I can't deny I like all the attention, nonetheless I feel kinda nostalgic, tired & bad tempered from time to time.
Damn hormones! Well, mom says they will wear off in a couple of weeks... I feel like chocolate, but of course! DOGS CAN'T HAVE CHOCOLATE!!!
I hate my life!
Let me go pick on Bela and Aullido, THAT would be a laugh!
Maybe better sleep for a while....
I'm not sure, I fell confused!
Mommy, Daddy I want a back rub!
Ok, bye now!

 

I'm sick!

Hey all! I got the flu :( on saturday we went forest-running, we had a lot of fun! it was Aullido's first time and he was beside himself with glee. When we came back home I started sneezing a lot, by evening I was coughing, having trouble breathing and had a really runny nose. Mom called the vet who said I had a flu-like infection and put me on antibiotics. So I'm taking medicine now!

Mom & dad spent all sunday moving furniture, and I was feeling so down, I didn't even mind staying home all day. It was good, they say, because now I feel better, altough I'm still sneezing a little. At least I got to go for a walk today because I'm better! but I hope mom & dad don't overdo it with me.

Also, I got the flu because during the week I went out rain-jogging with dad and I also got in some really cold rivers while in the forest :) but I can't help it, I love that stuff!

 

The dog park!

Hey all! so Aullido finally came back last week, he was at the vet and says he got neutered, I don't know what that is. He said it hurt a bit but is now recovering fine; though he's a bit grumpy so I try to give him a lot of space. Mom & dad built a new gate in the yard and at mealtime, they keep us separate so we don't argue over food. I think they're overreacting but sometimes humans do know better and this might be one of those times.

Yesterday mom & dad took me and Bela to the university campus for a walk, while Aullido stayed home, because he's not very friendly with other dogs. So off we went and since it rained a lot the night before, the place was wet and muddy. So instead of lots of families on picnics, there were a lot of dogs running around and playing in the mud! I went crazy and ran everywhere, meeting new friends, playing in the fountains, chasing squirrels, and a lot of stuff. It was really fun! I even met a couple of great danes and even a few dogs who were larger than me; a trio of english mastiffs who weren't that much fun because they're heavy and can't run as well as I can.

There I was chasing a belgian shepherd who was really fast, when he took a turn and went under a sign; I tried to chase him, thinking I could knock the sign over, but it was made of metal, so instead of going through, I hit my head, neck and back. It really hurt! so mom & dad rushed to see if I was ok. I walked it off with them, and after 15 minutes I was pretty much OK, but I'm still a bit sore. After all the fun and adventures, I slept all day, which was nice.

I'm only sorry Aullido couldn't come with us; he's so funny when he goes all shepherd mode and starts patrolling around us!

 

The fight

So! I got bit :(

Yesterday Aullido tried to eat my food, so I tried to move him away from my plate, he growled at me, I growled back, next thing I know we're fighting. Mom threw some water at us, that really distracted me and then she separated us. Mom & dad were angry at us for fighting but it was just a bit of growling and teeth-baring.

Today after we had finished eating I was trying to play with Aullido while dad watched Bela who was still munching on something. Aullido was in no mood to play and tried to bite me! the nerve! so I tried to bite back and we were fighting again. Dad splashed us with water and when we separated he got right between us and sent Aullido upstairs while I remained in the garage. I felt a bit of pain on my ear. It turns out the rascal got my ear! so dad took me to the vet, who gave me some local anesthetics and sutured me right there. Now I have three stitches on my right ear and I'm all upset because after all of this happened, dad took Aullido away and I didn't get to finish showing him who's the boss around these parts!

Still I'm puzzled because he's supposed to be a pretty quiet dog. But we fought twice in the last two days! I guess mom & dad are worried! and I wonder where Aullido went? because he's not home anymore... hmm..

I'll let you know when I find out more! see ya!

 

I'm barking in the rain!

Howdy all! things have been pretty exciting lately for us! exactly one week ago, mom & dad adopted Aullido; first thing he did was create a dogster page. Second thing he did was take over my couch. I'm a very nice doggie so I let him, though of course I got a super nice couch from Bela, who had to sleep on a stool for one night before mom & dad gave her my old-old couch.

When dad comes home from work in the afternoon he usually takes us for a short walk. However, due to hurricane Dean, far away in the gulf, yesterday was a rainy day; it rained all night and all day and all night again. Why does the hurricane so far away make it rain here? hey, don't ask me; I'm just a dog!

Anyway; since it was rainy and nasty it looked like we weren't going to walk; so Aullido and me got really nasty, started running around like crazy, slipping on the garage floor and threatening to hurt ourselves. So dad decided to take me for a rain-walk. Off we went with some really hard rain, running, crossing puddles (I love it!), visiting the park which was pretty much a mudfield, then running back home again. It was great! but I got really wet. I think dad got wet too but he can just change clothes and be done with it! Since I was tired when we got home, I slept all afternoon, along with Aullido and Bela, who are very lazy dogs and sleep most of the day anyway. How can they, when there's so much to do out there?

I'll go wait for my afternoon walk! see ya!

Hey! so we've always wanted to play tag here in Dogster and today we finally got tagged! thanks Maya!

To play tagg, you have to be tagged by another dog first. When you get tagged, you will write in your diary the rules to tagg, 7 facts about yourself, and 7 dogs you will tagg! When you tagg a dog, send them a paw mail or rossette telling them that you've tagged them!! Have fun!!! :)

Here are my 7 facts:

1. I sometimes sleep flat on my back. A thing we Danes do, mom says it's fun!
2. I've eaten two ipods; a Mini and a Nano.
3. Me and my family usually go for a walk at night.
4. Most people cross the street when they see me coming on the sidewalk :)
5. My dogster-friend Conan is my secret love :P
6. I can't resist puddles; the nastier, the better. They make for a soothing paw-bath.
7. I have a thing for kitchen rags; whenever I can, I sneak into the kitchen, take the rag, and then run like crazy ;)

Now i'm tagging Truman, Conan, Sherman, Keira Trelawney, Strom, Maximus and Jake.

Play on! this is fun!

 

The bike ride

Howdy! I'm just waking up! yesterday we had a really tiring day.

Mom and dad got ready to go cycling but this time was weird; instead of getting into the car and driving to a place where we can use the bikes, we got right out on the streets! our city organizes a "bicycling sunday" and this weekend the route went right by our street! so on we went!

Mom started running with me on a leash and Bela on the loose, while dad trailed us on the cargo tricycle lugging mom's mountain bike. Truly a sight to behold. Mayhem started pretty early when, less than 200 meters from home, Bela ran into a car and hurt her hind leg. Mom freaked out because she thought Bela had been run over, but luckily it turned out to be a minor scratch, since the car was moving very slowly.

Since Bela was still a bit hurt, they put her inside the trike, while mom began riding her bike and dad pedalled the trike, with me leashed to it. It's fun jogging along the trike but I don't like being leashed because I can't run like crazy.

We were riding along when out of a house came a dog, Bela started barking at him and trying to jump off the trike. I wondered what was going on with Bela, so I tried to get inside the trike to check on her, but when I came in front of it, I realized it was a very bad idea to get in front of a moving vehicle. Dad swerved and slammed on the brakes and BAM, the trike flipped over, Bela went flying to one side, I was very scared and tried to run away but couldn't because I was tied to the trike, all while mom rushed to help us, they finally untied me and Bela and all was well. I got a minor scrape on my front paw and dad twisted his ankle, but the funniest thing was when the trike flipped over!

After that they decided that the best thing to do was for mom to run with Bela on-leash, while dad moved the trike with me still tied to it, and mom's bike on the trike. It was a very odd arrangement; but since we all kept a very relaxed pace, we managed to complete the 14-km circuit in about 2 hours. After 10 km Bela got tired and did ride the trike without incidents for a while. Then they tried to put me inside but I got nervous. What if the thing flips over again? so I got off pretty quickly. We got home OK but really tired; me and Bela slept the whole day and night. All in all it was a bumpy ride but safe in the end and well worth it. I look forward to doing it again, though dad says that (luckily) it only happens once a month!

be seeing ya on wheels!

 

We're adopting!

Hey! so, Mom & Dad usually bring stray dogs into our home. They like to help dogs in need, find them new homes, and generally keeping them off the streets which are really nasty for a dog.

So far they've rescued and found homes for: a yellow lab named Rocky; a poodle, Daisy (who we were lucky enough to reunite with her family); a labrador mix, Nutella; and a wirehair mix, Moka. I've also enjoyed having those dogs as guests in our house; I play with them and reassure them that they're safe and things will change for the better for them.

Mom & dad have always struggled with choosing to give the dogs away rather than keeping them; they've reasoned that, while we have room for another dog (I'd love it! and Bela doesn't care too much), it's better to keep that slot "open" by finding appropriate homes for those dogs and still having the chance to have a guest dog-in-need every once in a while.

However, it seems that mom found a dog that would be hard to place anywhere else; and so she's strongly considering adopting him. Turns out our vet found a Bouvier wandering the streets and took him in; but she needs to find a home for him. Being an old and large dog, the vet says it's usually hard to place those.

So mom was considering adopting this dog; she went to take a look at him and that was it, now she's in love with the Bouvier and so there's a real chance we'll be having a third dog in the house.

The only question remains, will Bela and I get along with him? Maybe! we'll probably meet the Bouv on sunday; I'm reserving my opinion until I meet him.

Until then, be seeing ya!

 

Dad's vacation

Hey all! so I haven't been writing lately because! my dad had a 3-week vacation and he spent it all here at home! it's been awsome for me, because dad has to be with me all the time; if we're home, I can stay with him; if he has to go out, he takes me along!

so I've been very active; every morning I go for a short walk, then squirrel-sighting, later we come home and I get to sleep on the couch or bed while dad does stuff on the computer, later we go meet mom and walk home with her from work, and finally at night we go for our usual walk. I've been so tired but happy! Dad even took me to some nice places, like the hardware store and a couple new parks. I could get used to this.

Sadly, dad's vacation is almost over and he won't be able to stay with me as much. However he told me they're going to try and still take the afternoon walk to meet mom on her way from work. I'll like that! Dad will too, because in the past 3 weeks I've improved my heeling skills so I'm a pretty comfortable dog to walk.

The only nasty part is when people on the street get scared with me and start yelling! that scares me a bit! they crazy! be seeing you all soon, woof!

 

Battle for the door

Something wired is happening at home, every morning 2 smelly guys come home, pull down the garage door and start breaking it, tearing every inch of it, making lots of noise and pounding, only to have it re-ensemble by the end of the day. Next day the same happens...
I have to say 2 things about this.
First, humans are so crazy!!! I really don't get them from time to time, such strange behavior!
Second, they are good! I have been living with Mom & Dad for a year and a half and have worked hard at tearing that door since I arrived and I was only able to tear and munch on small pieces, maybe they have better fangs than me, but truth be told they are much more noisier than me!
I asked Bela what she thought about the whole matter, she explained doors are not to be broken that they keep us safe and that those men were actually covering up all the holes I have so carefully made during all those months... Well they better finish it good or in a couple months time they will have to come back!
