A 4th of July poem for dogs!

It’s the 4 of July , reason to celebrate is because we’re free.
It gives us the chance for you to be you and for me to be me.
Without a fight this would not have been and it’s all thanks to you.
And I certainly hope everyone continues to do what they do.

You see, without the men and women going out to fight
For what they believe in, to keep our rights in sight.
We would not have the country that we do have now.
So to all the men and women alike, to them I take a bow.

This not only goes for those who fought to keep our country free
This also goes out to all those who fought, for all the animals like me.
For all you kind people who fought to free us from this cage
You have helped to free us from our prison and the miller’s rage.

And also to those who continued to fight to free us from our chain
No longer are we all alone and stuck outside on the terrain
We now can have a real home, with people who care about us
Where would we be without you, and we thank you very much.

To all you rescuers, I take a bow and thank you immensely
You gave us all the care in the world and the chance to be free.
We thank you all for coming to us and giving us a hand
To have a home and a family and to run upon this land.

Happy 4th of July!
Love, A Dog

Swimmingly, thank you!

Yesterday I went swimming for the first time this summer. Mom couldn't find my old life vest (she thinks dad threw it out by accident) so she bought me a very nice new one made by Outward Hound. It really helped me float better than my old one. Mom put her hands under my chest just so I knew she was there and I could swim across the pool. All I wanted to do though was swim to the stairs - BOL!!! Well it was my first time since last year. It'll get better! Winston didn't get in the water. He ran into the house with Molly - BOL!!! Guess we know he's never been swimming now.

The weather has cooled down to mid 90s and there is smoke filling the air. The winds pushed a lot of smoke towards our way from the fires burning South of us. Probably won't get any swimming in today. But there is the whole summer ahead of us!

Dad put up the hammock and of course all 3 schnauzers jumped into it, well Georgie was picked up of course. Then us boys ran to play while mom & Georgie snoozed. I stood next to the hammock and mom used me to help her swing back and forth. Hey, we get our pets where we can!

Start of summer ~ Happy Solstice!

Today was Take Your Dog to Work Day. Dad took the bike to work but didn't take me! They don't allow dogs where he works. Mom was home today, so I guess I got to go to work with her ~ BOL!.

My buddy Maxemilian was a dogster diary pick of the day. He gets to ride in his dad's sidecar when his dad goes to work on bear fences! How exciting is that. Maybe dad could get a job like that.

Dexter is on his summer vacation in the sidecar. They made it to Albuquerque NM so far. It's been a really hot trip for him. Hope he stays cool.

It was 100 degrees today. Mom bought me a new life jacket today so we can go swimming tomorrow. She thinks dad may have thrown mine out in his enthusiasm to clean out the guesthouse. I can't wait to get in the pool again.

Summer is definately here!

Cool ride!

Today my dad received delivery on the coolest Father's Day present!!! It's a motorcycle with a sidecar!!! All 3 of us schnauzers jumped right in. We didn't get to go for a ride yet because he still needs to add something to attach a halter. And mom wants to add a side door - ever the safety queen! Mom picked up a pair of doggles for sizing. Georgie sat in the seat like she's been doing this all of her life. I had to share the seat with her, and Winston sat down where the human feet belong. We're ready to ride. Mom says "yeah, right, wait until dad starts the engine. We'll see schnauzers flying out of that sidecar!" Whatever, mom. If we go for rides with dad alone, we'll take the seat out and have a non-sliding cushion in the bottom. Our uncle has a motorcycle like this too. I wonder if my fur cousins have been for a ride yet. This is SO cool.

Our pal Dexter is taking off on his cross country motoring trip with his dad today. We hope that when they come across this way that they'll stop in and tell us about it. How cool would that be!

Now off to dream of motoring with dad....aarrrooooooooooo!!!

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 because he loves me! He throws toys for me to fetch, and gives me belly rubs. He let's me go with him to get the paper or mail or if he's out front - I'm the only one that gets to do that with him! He howls sometimes to get all 4 of us started. He drives us to the beach. When he comes home at night, we all rush to greet him at the door and he gives each one of us hugs and scritches and asks us how are day was. And he does what it seems every other daddy does - sneaks me treats! He's a good daddy and I love him!

Summer is finally here. It was 95 degrees today, and it's gonna be hotter tomorrow. Our pool pump is getting fixed - we all hope it's gonna be done by next weekend! Cuz it's time to SWIM!!! I love swimming, with my life jacket! And Georgie likes to float around with mom. Molly likes to hide in the house - BOL!!! We don't know what Winston will do. Probably run along the edge of the pool barking at all of us. He thinks he's the boss of me, so is always barking at me when I do something he doesn't want me to do. I do it anyway - bol!

Along with swimming comes more barbeques!!! You know what that means...maybe a morsel of chicken or beef or fish or veggies will be coming our way - yahoo!

The Pet's 10 Commandments

June 6th 2008 4:05 pm
[ View A Comments ]

A PET'S TEN COMMANDMENTS.........

1. My life is likely to last 10-15 years. Any separation from you is likely to be painful.

2. Give me time to understand what you want of me.

3. Place your trust in me. It is crucial for my well-being.

4. Don't be angry with me for long and don't lock me up as punishment.
You have your work, your friends, your entertainments, but I have only you.

5. Talk to me.
Even if I don't understand your words, I do understand your voice when speaking to me.

6. Be aware that however you treat me, I will never forget it.

7. Before you hit me, before you strike me, remember that I could hurt you, and yet, I choose not to bite you.

8. Before you scold me for being lazy or uncooperative, ask yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps I'm not getting the right food, I have been in the sun too long, or my heart might be getting old or weak.

9. Please take care of me when I grow old. You too, will grow old.

10. On the ultimate difficult journey, go with me please. Never say you can't bear to watch.
Don't make me face this alone. Everything is easier for me if you are there, because I love you so.

~Take a moment today to thank God for your pets. Enjoy and take good care of them.
Life would be a much duller, less joyful experience without God's critters~

Now please pass this on to other pet owners. We do not have to wait for Heaven, to be surrounded by hope, love, and joyfulness. It is here on earth and has four legs!

jumping...

I love to jump. I'll jump off of, onto or through anything. I have some agility equipment but that's just for play. Mom says she hopes to get me into agility classes one of these days as soon as she can get time. I also have the ability to spring onto things, without any steps. Usually, it's onto the parent's bed in the morning. Twice lately I have sprung up and landed right on mom!!! She laughs because it is so funny altho I don't know that she really likes it. I jump over the back of the sofas and can even do it onto the dining room table - once dad was using the table for photo shoots and I just decided to get into a photo with Winston. I was watching one second & the next I was in the photo - BOL!!! Yesterday I did a new one. Dad was sitting in his computer chair holding & hugging Georgie. I decided I needed attention right that minute, so I leaped right up onto the arm of the chair!!! Mom & dad burst out laughing because it looked so funny. But it makes them wonder what I do when they're not home, hehehe... do you think I can get on the kitchen counter or island???
