Meeting New "Friends"

February 15th 2007 12:34 pm
[ Leave A Comment ]

Boy is it tough learning to be a non-city dog. I've been with my Mom and the rest of the pack since late August 2006 but I came from a city where I didn't have the chance to meet many new "friends". When I first went to live with my ohana outside of San Antonio I was amazed at how many other living things there were for me to befriend. I tried to make friends with these tall four-legged things, some of which have horns and some smaller ones that had spots. Mom said they were called "deer". I tried to play with them through the fence, but they just ran away from me. I then tried to get to know these little furry things that Mom called squirrels, but they just ran up the trees and yelled at me for trying to play with them. When we were walking around the neighborhood I kept trying to meet and play with deer and squirrels as well as some birds that sang pretty songs to me, but no one was interested. Just yesterday I was out for my morning potty break and I met a small black and white furry animal. I went closer and it didn't run away so I thought that it might want to play with me. At the time, I couldn't understand why Darius and Yoda didn't want to come play with us. When I started to play more with my new "friend" it suddenly turned around and I thought it was going to walk away so I barked at it to stop. Then it hit me -- literally. My face started to burn and my eyes were all watery. There was this terrible smell too. I called for Mom and when she came out into the yard I went running to her. I didn't expect Mom to be unhappy with me, after all it was Valentine's Day!! Mom said I had met a "skunk" and that they weren't very nice to play with. I had to get a bath and drops in my eyes. Mom still doesn't want to get very close to me becuse she says that I still smell like the skunk. I guess she doesn't like that smell very much. According to Mom even Darius smells a little bit so he doesn't get to sit in Mom's lap right now. I don't know if I'll ever meet Skunk again, but I hope if I do he is nicer the next time.


Summertime, summertime, summertime!!!

It's summertime. I know it is 'cause Mom just filled up my pool. I guess she waas getting tired of me playing in the outside water bowl. I can't wait to play outside and then go lay down in my pool. Oh wait, if I do that will I have to stay out longer?? I guess I'll have to try it out tonight and find out what Mom does.


What did Mom do to me?

Yesterday started off just fine. I knew it was the weekend beacuse Mom let me outside to run in the yard as long as I wanted to run. Then I came in and got my treat (as usual) and saw that Mom had the leashes ready for all of us to go for a walk, or so I thought. It was great, we allgot ready to go and then got in the car and headed out to Highway 46. I thought for sure we were going to go to Guadalupe State Park and go walking and then I could play in the river. When we got to the turn off we just kept driving. Huh, I thought maybe Mom was going to take us to a new place to walk. Boy was I wrong. Mom took us to a kennel. She called it a resort, but I'm sure that it is a kennel. Mom and another girl took us into a room and then Mom left. I don't know when she'll be back to get me either. I hope it is real soon because I sure miss her.


Home at last!!!

Well, Mom finally came and got me on Monday. When they took me out of my kennel and brought me up to the front desk Mom was right there. I couldn't help myself and I ran to meet her. I wouldn't sit still and had to give her a big kiss to let her know how much I missed her. I didn't even try to play with Darius for a whole day because I just wanted to be next to Mom. Darius didn't like that very much because that's what he wanted to do as well. I think we upset Mom a little bit because her lap just isn't big enough for both of us. I hope that Mom doesn't leave me again, I really missed her.


Mom is acting "funny"

I don't know what I did, but Mom just seems to be upset now. When I wait patiently for my reward for coming in from outside she starts to say something and then just starts to cry. She hugs me and Darius a lot and says that she loves us, but then she starts to cry again. I don't know what I did wrong, but maybe I did something by mistake. I've tried to be a good girl for a while now and I thought that after we went to Cany0n Lake on Sunday I did real good. I had fun swimming in the lake and I didn't even complain when it was time to go home. I hope Mom gets better soon.


Mom's Back!!!!

I'm so happy, Mom's back. I don't know why she left, but she was gone for almost 3 WEEKS!!!! We went to this place where these big things that Mom calls planes make lots of noise and Mom left us. Then on top of all of that, Darius & I had to go to the kennel for almost a week. I wasn't sure if Mom was ever going to come back and get me. I thought that I was being a good girl, but I'll be extra special now so she doesn't do that to me again. I haven't let her out of my sight when she's home and I'm right there waiting at the door when she goes outside. Let's see her try to leave me again!!!


Darius is getting better

Boy am I glad Darius is getting better. Ever since we came home from the kennel where we stayed when Mom had to go out of town he's been in a bad mood. He wouldn't play with me at all and I was wondering what I'd done. Yesterday he started to play with me again, but this plastic thing Mom calls an e-collar keeps getting in the way. Maybe we'll be able to play again some time soon. I hope so because he's a lot of fun to play with.


I've been in my forever home for over a year

I just realized it today after my last post but I've been in my forever home as part of my ohna for over a year now. Things have been exciting and I'm still learning how to be a great girl. While I 0nly knew her for a short time, I loved Yoda and miss her lots & lots (maybe not as much as Darius & Mom). Darius is lots of fun to be around and I can't wait for him to get better so we can go on more rides and hikes. I LOVE MY FAMILY!!!!!!!

I still don't like it when Mom goes to work, but I don't have to be in my "house" any more. Mom now trusts me to stay in the master suite with Darius. We have access to our bed (we just let Mom think it belongs to her) and I can run around. I don't know what to make of this thing that Mom puts in the doorway to keep us in, but maybe if I'm a good dog she'll take it down some day. It is so much fun to have room to play and a nice soft bed to lounge on while I wait for Mom to come home.


When Do I Get to Go Walking????

Boy am I mad at Mom. She hasn't been able to take us walking for such a long time. I know that she's busy with that school stuff she's always talking about, but what about me (and Darius)!!!!!! I keep trying to give her hints that I want to go walking but nothing seems to be working. I guess I'll just have to nudge a little harder. I hope it doesn't rain tonight becuase I bet I can get her to take me for a walk if I really try hard.
