Hot dogs

Heya'll! sorry for not writing for so long but I was in heat and so I had more important concerns. But it looks like it's over now so here I am!

So first, I'm really really afraid of the hallway between the stairs and mom's room. I feel like I'm gonna trip and fall into a nasty abyss! so I try to walk very carefully there. Last week I was terrified so I refused to go there, mom & dad had to buy a rubber mat so I don't slip, and now I'm much more confident when walking there. But I'm still very careful.

Mom & dad don't know what happened to me to make me so afraid. They think I slipped and hurt myself, but the truth is, they dont know and I ain't telling because I'm embarrassed :( a big dog like me is not supposed to be such a coward but hey, I got a heart too!

Today while mom was taking a shower I found a phone! it was nice and crunchy and it beeped when I bit it, so I gnawed at it for a while, but then mom caught me and yelled at me :( it's not my fault the phone is made of such brittle plastic! nothing like the iPod I once ate, now *that* was hard!

Also, two weeks ago, I was running along dad and I moved in front of him, the big dork tripped on me and fell, then yelled a bit at me but he seemed hurt. From such a small fall! eventually he went to see a doctor (which is like a vet but for humans) and it turns out he broke his finger! humans are a bit wimpy! and now they say they're going to call me the bonebreaker! like it was my fault! hah :P

be seeing ya'll!

 

My new friend (we rescued a dog!)

This last monday was a federal holiday where we live. What that means is that we got to go running in the mountains two days in a row. Woo-hoo! Anyway, the first day, as we set to start running, a friendly dog approached us. It was a yellow lab, looking pretty dirty, skinny and with no collar or id, meaning he was very comfortable.

Of course I started playing with him and I play rough, but he was all for it, wanted to play and didn't back away; I had a lot of fun. As we prepared to start our run, this dog wanted to come with us. Nobody seemed to come after him or call him, so we started and he came with us. It was a nice run and he tagged along the whole way, up the mountain and down again.

All the way mom & dad were saying about this dog, that he was abandoned, and what were we going to do with him since he had "adopted" us and so on. When we came back to the car, we shared our biscuits with him and as we got ready to leave, he started following our car.

So mom & dad decided to take him with us! whee! they asked around and it turns out he'd been lost at the mountain cabins for about a month, eating whatever the caretakers gave him and so on. So he was really abandoned!

So mom & dad took care of him, gave him food and let him sleep in our house. On monday, since a holiday and there were no vets, we went to the forest again, taking the lab with us. He stayed glued to us the entire time, through a nice run in freezing-cold weather with haze and drizzle. It was really fun but tiring because he has a lot of stamina!

The doggie got a bath, dad took him to the vet for a checkup and some shots (they say it hurts but I had some too and it doesn't feel like anything!). And mom says he's already going to go live with a friend of hers. Meanwhile the dog stays at our house and I get to play with him, and I'm SO tired because he's tireless but then again so am I, so when we're both tired we just take a nap.

So all in all, I've been quite happy because I have a new friend, one that's not scared by my size and really enjoys playing with me. And I know I'm gonna miss him when he's gone, but all the same I'm glad mom & dad rescued him from being all alone in the mountains and found him a nice house with people for him to live in. :)

 

I'm always on a leash!

This is so not fair!
Lately when I'm walking with mom & dad on the park they put me on a leash all the time. When I was little I could run at my very leisure but it seems that young ladies such as myself are not allowed to!
Thing is, Bela can be without one, and is sooo not fair! She can go sniffing everywhere, she can go after cats and squirrels and doves, she can go see what's outside the rubbish bins...
But then again she is so old and respectful of mom's orders, she always comes to her when yelled at jajaja! Well maybe the size matters too! She's so tiny she can't get her nose on the tables not even standing on her hind legs! And everyone just pats her head when she's close by. Not such luck for me! Just the other day a couple chatting inside their car put the locks on and rolled their windows up when i got too close to them.... I just wanted a sniff!
Well for the time being there's not much I can do, I'm such a renegade that I'll wait for a couple of years to really pay attention to all of mom's and dad's yelling jajaja

 

dogs & horses

I've always liked horses. Whenever I see one, I try to get close and sniff it. What is it that attracts me to them? Mom & dad (and most people actually) say I look like a little horse so that could be it. They're just nice and look friendly even though they're so big! mom & dad usually get mad at me when I go near horses, they fear I might get kicked by one, but I know better! duh! I just have to jump out of danger if a horsey threatens to kick me!

Yesterday we went for a run on the forest, it was really nice altough I was very tired. Near the end of the run there was this horse with some doggie friends walking right next to it! see? dogs & horses are meant to go together! so I tried to get close to them when, to my surprise, the dogs went right after me, barking and growling and snapping. I was very scared and tried to jump off to the side but one of the nasty doggies managed to nick me on the side with his teeth. So I ran to mom & dad who were worried and looked me over but it seems I'm ok, it was just a scratch and it didn't even pierce my skin.

Later they were saying how I have a lot of agility and how that helped me escape a nasty bite. I don't know; I still want to be friends with a horse, but I'm thinking I'll wait for one without a doggie escort.

Oh, and they took me for a manicure, I don't like it :(

 

Christmas!

Hey all! so I'm really excited as I begin this year, because I had a really fun christmas and holiday season!

First we spent christmas weekend at grandpa's with the big yard and there were a lot of interesting things happening! everyone was happy, cooking lots of yummy food and there was this huge mountain of presents! though mom & dad had to teach me not to grab them because I really wanted to munch some crunchy paper. Then on the second day there (christmas eve), a lot of people started coming in and there was a party! the group did the mexican "posada" traditional procession, I'd never seen it and it was a lot of fun trying to grab dad's candle, it was one of those glowsticks they use for camping and stuff. We doggies got to eat a lot of leftovers and there were even presents for us! but I was really tired from runninng around all day so I went to sleep pretty early, although they gave me and Bela a nice mat to lie on so we could be close to mom & dad and the party.

On christmas day we woke up to a beautiful day and after breakfast we came back home. I was really tired from all the excitement and basically slept all through the day. Overall christmas was nice and I got a nice flying squirrel frisbee!

Then a few days later we went running in the forest and there were the weirdest creatures! cows! they're like dogs only really really fat and they're huge! I wanted to play with them but they were too slow for me! hah! while in the forest we even came across a group of cows who were lying down on the floor resting, so I got to get really close and smell them. They seemed to fear me and Bela because they got all defensive and tried to scare us away. And I only wanted to play with them!

It's been a pretty exciting time for me, and it's now a new year (or so mom & dad say, to me it feels the same except dad who is on vacation spends afternoons with us, which he usually can't) and though mom & dad would like me to have a resolution to be better behaved, I think my new year's resolution will be to play more. I love to play and run around! so happy new year to all my friends!

 

Ready for christmas!

Hey all! so I've been quite busy because christmas is around the corner and mom & dad have been crazy with shopping and preparations while Bela and I help any way we can! I'm thrilled! last christmas I was only a month old so I don't remember much, but since I was still with my breeder I guess I was in a room with all my puppy siblings and didn't get to enjoy the party.

Bela has told me how things go, and because I've seen mom & dad bring presents and wrap them up in nice, crunchy paper and I've been busy investigating everything they bring for wrapping, I guess things are like this: all the humans gather near a small tree where all the presents will be. I get to pick a present with my mouth and run like crazy while all the humans chase me into the yard. When I'm running I get to tear off the shiny, crunchy paper and then I get to chew on whatever's inside the package. I hope I can do it right!

From what I've heard it's exactly what humans do, except they don't run, they just tear the paper away and look at the presents and that's it. I like my version better!

The best part is, we get to spend a few days at grandpa's, with the big yard! so tomorrow we'll leave and we'll be back on christmas day. So I guess I'll be seeing you then! And Merry Christmas to all, dogs and humans alike!

More friends!

Hey! I'm very happy today because I met two new friends: Mitch, a miniature schnauzer, and Camilo, a bassethound. I like bassets because they're like short bloodhounds and have a really nice bark, it's even deeper than mine! These two dogs were really friendly and they both liked to play with me. I chased Mitch a bit, he runs like a rabbit! while Bela engaged in a gazing battle with Camilo, who won and then came to play with me. He likes to play rough, started jumping and nibbling at me and is really heavy for such a short dog, so even I had trouble keeping up with him.

Eventually I decided to just go play with Mitch. I'm very good at playing with smaller dogs, I'm very gentle and try to get down to their level so they don't get scared. Of course it only works if the tiny dog is not afraid of the big black dog (me!) and luckily for me that's the case with Mitch.

We had a great time before we had to leave, and then, because I ate some nasty dirt, I threw up in the car on the way home :( mom & dad were worried; but I'll be OK, I just have a small tummy-ache and I'm really tired from all that running around so once again, off I go to get some sleep! good night !

 

A new friend!

Woo-Hoo!! so yesterday we went out for a walk at the HUGE explanada at the university; it's one of my favorite places to go because it's humongous and I have a lot of space to run. Also, I can usually find some nasty garbage: plastic bottles, used napkins and leftover food from picnics; then I pick it up and run like mad while dad & mom yell at me and try to get the toys from me. But I'm too fast! You should see just how upset they get when I find chicken remains! Bela and I go ga-ga over chicken bones.

Yesterday there was this guy with a big dog. When we approached it turned out to be another great dane! I love to play with other dogs of my breed because they do a lot of the stuff I can do, like play tackle and stand on two feet (mom says it's quite a sight). It's good for us too, since we're so big it's often difficult to find playing partners; most dogs south of a labrador retriever just can't handle a great dane ;)

I had a lot of fun playing with Shaka, who is a 9-month-old, male merlequin; already he's taller than me, even though 4 months younger; but he was really skinny and was no match for me. His dad should take him out more often, needs exercising! anyway I had a lot of fun and mom & dad did too, they say they like watching me play with other dogs, specially great danes.

 

Galacto - what?

Hey! so yesterday we took Bela to the vet to see if he could help fix her nasty cough. I try to help her but when she coughs all I can do is sniff and I don't think it's so good for her.

The vet said she has kennel cough; he also said I'm OK because I had the shot for that when I was just a wee puppy. Bela didn't get a vaccine then because she has been getting sick and so mom & dad never got the chance, and now she caught the disease but she's going to be fine cuz the vet gave her some antibiotics and she has to wear a zebra-stripe shirt most of the time to stay warm. I used to have one of those because mom brought two when she was on a trip, but it doesn't look good on me, so when they tried to put it on, I just tore it apart. That'll teach them!

They also took me to see the vet because mom & dad think my breasts are getting too big. Sure enough, the vet checked me and said I have galacto-something; meaning I'm producing milk. Since I'm not pregnant, the vet said it's most likely due to hormonal imbalance and the problem'll sort itself out in a few weeks. And luckily I don't have to take medicine like Bela! cuz when that happens, daddy has to jam the pills down our throats and it's nasty. In the meanwhile I look a bit fat and weird, mom & dad laugh at me and say I'm like a tiny cow, and I have to constantly lick myself to get rid of secretions. Bah! this hormone business is not funny for nice doggies like me!
