I'm Ready for Spring!

Dear Diary,
It's really just too, too much for a pup to bear. We suffered through sub and near zero weather for most of January. But, really, February could have been kinder 'n' given us some relief. We had maybe 3 days of 50+ degree weather in February 'n' now I hear it's going to be 14 degrees tomorrow. Are we going backwards or something? My paws are tired of slipping 'n' sliding on ice 'n' crunchy, crusty snow! Mommy schlepped with me over to the park today for our midday walk 'n' it was not much fun! She's such a flat-land ninny that she does not walk in snow very well, so I had a mini-walk. Not enough sniffing time at all. Well, that wasn't too unfortunate cuz I think my nose was in danger of plopping right down off my face. The wind-chill was around 10. Mommy had this "I-can't-feel-my-cheeks-or-lips" look which is pretty scary to see when you think about it. We're only a few weeks from spring 'n' I think next year we ought to bring that ground hog out 'n' blindfold him so he can't possibly see a shadow and doom us to another long winter like this one has been!

We've Been From Pillar to Post!

Dear Diary, did you think I'd forgotten you? Nope, I've been traveling. I've been from pillar to post to pillar to new post, another pillar and now to my Home Post. (I hope!) #1. We left 21 Dec. at 9:00 AT NIGHT...that's my bedtime, thank-you-very-much, but did the pawrents consider that? Not on your life. We were on our way to Roswell, Ga. to spend Christmas with my no-fur Sis 'n' her baby's 1st Christmas. That was fine, but have you ever had to get out at midnight to do your "business" in 8 degree temp. 'n' well below zero wind chill? You can't even do good sniffing under those conditions. Mommy knew to get me right back in that car fast! She was freezing too 'n' couldn't find her face for a while. We eventually made to Atlanta area where I had to put up with my 2 cousins, Harvey (a Boston) 'n' Cosette, an "it's me, mine, 'n' never yours" cousin. She's a Frenchie, so I guess she can't help it. By the end of our visit, though we were getting along pretty well. #2. Next we headed down to Florida! I luv'd that 'cause I got up to 5 walks a day along the lakefront with no sign of alligators. It was 75 degrees warm too, much better than that 8 degree stuff up home! I even got to go to a local dog park 'n' play! Can't do that up home right now...too, too cold! Everything was going along swimmingly until the pawrents decided to take me on a visit to their friends in a nearby town. These friends have 2 Bostons, both male, 'n' really very nice. But, I wonder, will they ever take me somewhere where I can be the only, the top doggy? Hallelujah, my wish came true! On the way home we stopped 'n' visited friends overnight 'n' they have no pets, but LUV doggies. (That stop was the 3rd 'n' last "pillar", by the way.) #3. We traveled all day yesterday 'n' finally reached home-sweet-home last evening. Mommy 'n' Daddy, puh-leeze do not take me anywhere out of town for a long, long time.

(With Apologies to)It's Beginning to Look Like Christmas

It’s Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas
All around our house.
My nose is sniffing a wonderful smell
You know it can always tell
When Mommy’s cooking up something swell!
It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas
All around our house.
My Mommy’s wrapping up gifts galore
Paper’s all over the floor, and
Daddy’s hiding stuff behind the door!
It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas
Soon it will be time
And the happiest thing to see
Are the things Santa left for me
Underneath the tree.
Oh, a little soft toy and also one that squeaks
And a stocking packed up with some treats.
Things I can chase when I have lots of space
To run ‘til I fall on my face.
It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas
Mommy turns on the tree,
And the hope of its bright-lit Star
Is the Promise we can see
In our Lord’s Nativity.

 

Boy, Am I Glad Today is Over!

Dear Diary, I am one worn-out pooch! All day Mommy 'n' Daddy have been flitting around, in and out of the kitchen, to the store, back from the store....I'm exhausted just trying to keep up with them. They never STOPPED! Food was all over the place. Of course, not where I could reach it, and goodness knows I tried. Finally, when it looked like things had calmed a bit 'n' maybe they could pay a little attention to Me, the whole house erupted with humans pouring in. Well, you know what I mean. Anyway, they expected to be FED with OUR food 'n' what's more they brought all these children with them. Now, I really love to play with kids, I really do, but all that squealing 'n' running around 'n' loud grown-up human talking was more than a pup should have to bear. However, there is one happy note to this saga, and that is I'm a master at conning food, well, not from Mommy 'n' Daddy, but from all the others. I put my chin and a lap and do the poor-starving-little-me doe eyes 'n' it works like a charm. They're all gone now, the kitchen is quiet, Daddy's sprawled on a chair, Mommy's....well, you know where she is, and I am ready to find a soft, warm blankie, curl up 'n' .......zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

What do they think I am?

Goodness! I just clicked my Account picture 'n' couldn't find myself. Apparently Dogster thinks I'm a kitty cuz it took me right to Catster 'n' asked "where did that kitty go?" First of all I am NOT a kitty, 'n' if I was gonna hide, I'd surely hide somewhere else.....although, on second thought, if I hid there, no other fur could find me! We're celebrating at our house now cuz my Daddy was FINALLY released from the kennel, er, hospital after 10 days. I missed him soooo much. He's on the mend from his surgery 'n' Mommy 'n' I hope he can soon go back to taking me on my early, early morning walks. (Mommy 'specially is looking forward to that cuz she's definitely NOT a morning person!) But the best news of all is that my Daddy's cancer is all gone! He's cured. Thank you all my Pup 'n' Kitty furiends for your good wishes 'n' pawrayers!

 

I Miss My Daddy

Dear Diary,
It's been really lonely 'n' boring around the house this week. Mommy 'n' Daddy went out somewhere in the car 'n' were gone for a long, long time. Then, when Mommy returned, she didn't bring Daddy back with her. I looked 'n' looked, but....no Daddy! I think she put him in a kennel somewhere. Well, that's where they put me when they're gone for a really long time, like days or a week. She said it wasn't a kennel, it's a hospital. Well, whatever it is, hospital or kennel, he's stuck there for 5 or 6 days. He had something called cancer 'n' they had to go in 'n' take care of it. Mommy's really happy, though, 'cause the doctor said my Daddy's cured. The cancer is all gone! It seems he took medicine 'n' got radiated for weeks before 'n' it worked 'cause the tumor had shrunk to nothing. But, it's still boring hanging out here all by myself with nothing to entertain me except occasional kitties or doggies passing by outside. Oh yes, 'n' the Little White Truck (the mailman). I hope they're giving Daddy lots of treats while he's at his kennel, uh, hospital 'n' that he comes home soon. Mommy's been walking me 'n' she's fun 'n' all, but I like my Daddy walks the best cuz that's when we have our special Daddy/Doggy time....just him 'n' me! GET WELL SOON, DADDY!

 

Mommy's Not Sharing!

Mommy's really not being very nice to me. First she drags herself around the house carrying a big box of tissues which she knows is one of my favorite play things next to a fresh roll of toilet paper. Then she gets them all messy, just the way I like them. (I heard you fastidious type pups go "yuck" but I bet you like them that way too!) Every time I see her with a used one I give her my most "think of your deserving doggy" look, but she in turn gives me that "I'm the sick one here; back off Pup!" look. All right, I do feel sorry for her cuz she can't talk, coughs 'n' hacks 'n' generally is unpleasant to look at right now. But, all in all, giving me the used tissues would actually save her some steps, like to the trash can. I can demolish them all 'n' she'd never have to worry with them! Uh oh, she's gonna take another nap! Maybe if I carefully cuddle up next to her to let her know that I truly do feel sorry for her she'll slowly lose her grip on the tissue 'n' I can scarf it up before she's aware! Oh dear, she really does look pathetic. Maybe I'll just settle in with her 'n' hope for a nice tummy rub instead.
