Finally out of smoke!

We finally made it to Oregon last night. Just dad, mom & me!!! It's fun to get all of the attention again just like when I was the ONLY pup in the family. I do love my family but it's still nice to occasionally get some one on one time with the pawrents!

Northern California still had many, many fires burning yesterday. We did not see a blue sky that wasn't smoke filled until we crossed the Oregon border!!! I feel so sorry for all the pups and people affected by this. I know it hasn't been fun breathing smoke for a week but at least our town is intact. I'm saying a prayer tonight for all the people affected by the fires.

We're staying at the ocean in Oregon. The air is SO good. Mom & dad are still coughing, but with each breath we're energized. We have a great view of the ocean too! I love going for walks and smelling all the new smells. And last night I slept in the bed with mom & dad - something I never do at home! It was pretty special to cuddle. Just don't tell those brothers of mine I have such a soft side!

Today we went to my uncle's house, and I met my 2 fur cousins Sparky & Annie. They are BIG dogs but very friendly & playful. After we did the obligatory sniffs, they chased each other around and I ran around the yard. We all took a nap while the people did their talking, then we went outside to play and walk in the neighborhood. It was really fun. One thing everyone hid from me, is that there are also 5 cats in that house!!! FIVE!!! Woo hoo, I can't wait to chase them all....oh mom says don't bother, they all outweigh me. Yeah they may outweigh me but I'm smarter than all of them I bet. I'll manage to get a chase in before the week is over.

Right now is dinner time, then I get another walk. We're going to walk along the harbor and look at all of the boats & seagulls. How fun!!!

We heard that Winston & Finnegan are holding the new housesitter hostage with their soccer ball - BOL!!! Molly of course is being sweet and gets lots of loving that way - she's a smart one! So I don't think they're missing us too much right now.

Well, dinner time!



Off on vacation - a PINK one!

Well Mom & Dad are all packed up. We're ready to start our vacation. Yesterday Mom took me to my favorite store and bought me a new halter to wear in the car. It's PINK!!! I've never worn pink stuff, I'm not so much a girly girl. But everyone kept telling me how adorable I looked, so I think I like it now. They didn't have any pink collars, so we then went to Petsmart and I now have a PINK collar. I can't believe it. But I do look cute. So, as we ride into the sunset, you will see a pink glow emitting from our car - that's ME!



I love a parade!

I keep hearing mom & dad talk about vacation. Two people came over yesterday and mom was telling them how to take care of us - uh oh I don't like the sound of that! They aren't Elizabeth our usual housesitter so I don't know what to think. But mom told me not to tell the rest of the pack yet, but I'm going on vacation with her & dad. We're going to visit my uncle in Oregon. She said we have a room on the ocean and we'll go for walks every day! How divine ~ I don't have to be part of a pack! Except when I go to my uncle & aunt's house who have 2 big dogs and 5 cats!!! But we have our own place to stay so I'm not with them all of the time. I love getting all of the attention. Dad is going to tow his motorcycle behind the car, and he & my uncle are going to go riding. So that means lots of beach time with mom!

And one of the coolest things that is happening is that Dad & Uncle will ride their motorcycles in the 4th of July parade ~ and I get to ride in it too!!! Mom, don't forget to pack my doggles. Woo hoo, this sounds like fun.



I'm healthy!

I went to see Dr. Porte today! When I came in, everyone was worried that I was sick, but mom got to say nope, just here for her checkup. Everyone was so excited to see me, I got lots of hugs and I gave lots of kisses. Now I don't give kisses to anyone, but these people have saved me life, afterall! I even gave Dr. Porte one on the face ~ and those are reserved for mom only. She was really proud of me.

It took a long time to go through my chart just to find out what was due - BOL! It was time for my annual blood tests and a rabies shot - yuck. We talked about not doing the shot because of the studies that say immunity probably lasts up to 7 years. But we have lots of raccoons, skunks and squirrels in our yard and decided this will be my last one, and we're not going to do any of the others. I was good and mom gave me 2 treats while I was there. Dr. Porte said I'm doing really well and to keep doing what I'm doing. Don't change a thing! I was hoping he'd say to give me more treats, but alas he didn't. He said my weight and nutritional status look good, I'm getting plenty of exercise, I'm alert, maybe my vision is a little fuzzy but I can still find those squirrels so I'm not worried. So far so good! Not bad for an old gal.

Here's a great poem posted by SAMSON in the Schnauzer Scoop today!

We may not shower him with praise
Nor mention his name in song,
And sometimes it seems that we forget
The joy he spreads as he goes along,
But it doesn’t mean that we don’t know
The wonderful role that he has had.
And away down deep in every heart
There’s a place that is just for Dad.....

I Love My Daddy & My Daddy Loves Me!

I love my Daddy! I'm his first schnauzer and he fell in love with the breed once he met me. He is so gentle and kind to me. Every night I get special time with him when he rubs my belly and I fall asleep. He has done everything for me from walking me, feeding me, bathing me, taking me on vacations, taking care of me when I was sick and keeping me healthy. He also gives me extra treats even though mom tells him not to do that!!! I'm his special girl and he lets me know every day. Thank you Daddy for loving me. I love you!

Happy Father's Day Daddy!



Remember our Troops & K9s

I would like to take a moment on this Memorial Day weekend to thank and think about our present and past troops who have served our country.

Also our K9s who are serving in our current war. There is a great website honoring them, and if you click on the "Operation Military Care" link you can see how to help them. One of our dogsters mothers contacted the website admin & felt it was a valuable effort.



Diary of the Day

Wow - we were so surprised when we found out I had been chosen as dogster's diary of the day!!! How exciting to get chosen to be in the spawtlight. In Schnauzers Rule we always yap a lot and it spills over into our diaries ~Bol~ someone heard us schnauzers yapping!!!! All kidding aside, we love dogster for the community it provides, the opportunity to meet and to share with others. Today exemplified that - everyone was so generous with messages, gifts and invitations to become friends. I met some great pups today, and some of my old friends came out to say hi even though they haven't been around much, and of course my daily yappy pals! It just goes to show that we continue to be here for each other in good times, hard times and fun times. Thank you dogster for providing this place for all of us to be together! And thank you to all my furiends! You're the best!

One of my best furiends, Jake, was just visiting this week. We knew each other when we were really young. We both had a sister then, but both girls have passed to the Rainbow Bridge. The four of us used to visit at each others houses, go for walks, and go out on their boat. Jake & Rachel used to jump off of the boat to go swimming! Annie & I only went swimming when our pawrents were in the water and we wore life jackets. Jake & Rachel were the first pups to meet Annie. Right after we picked up Annie from the breeder, we met them at the boat dock & they sniffed each other out. We didn't go out on the boat with them though, we went home so Annie could see her new house.

Jake used to be a therapy dog in Florida. He is SO sweet. He loves to sit next to people and hold his paw up. He could sit for hours so that the nursing home people could visit & pet him. Finnegan was really jealous of him and tried to keep him away from mom & dad. I didn't let Finn get in my way, after all I've known Jake longer than Finn has been alive!!! Jake is 11 and I'm 13, and Finn is only 3 - silly boy. He'll learn. They come to visit every year. Last year they came during summer and swam in our pool. That made Finnegan want to swim. This year Winston got to meet Jake. They seemed to get along just fine. And Molly gets along with everyone. So except for that silly Finn, all was great.

Jake & his family are going to Alaska next!!! Good thing he's a big dog, he won't be scared of those big animals. Dad says they'd like us for a snack!!! Snack!!! Guess we'll stay home and wait for Jake to come back & tell us about it.



Sweet Velvet

One of my dear friends Velvet crossed the Rainbow Bridge this past week. It made us VERY VERY sad. Velvet is 14, one of the older gals in Schnauzers Rule. I always appreciated her experience & sense of humor. Mom always appreciated her mom's sharing her knowledge & experience at caring for older dogs. Velvet has been the #1 game player in Schnauzers Rule too. She even won a Pawcademy Award for it. She had a splenectomy last year and had been doing well. Recently she was having some problems that seemed to get better. Then she went to the vet and found out she had lymphoma. Her mom said overnight Velvet went downhill so terribly that they had to let her cross the bridge. We know her family is very sad. We will miss you Velvet, but you are always in our hearts. And we hope someday you'll join us again in Schnauzers Rule from the Bridge! In the meantime, I know your brother & sister, and my sister Annie, and lots of other schnauzers are there with you. Hugs & kisses from my family to yours.
