Congratulations to Mr. & Mrs. Robin on your new babies. I hope they are enjoying their new life in their nest on my sensor lights above the garage door. I have to bark that I am very impressed with your workmanship on your nest, but I want to remind you that it is in my territory so please keep them babies in their nest and do not dive bomb me. We can work together on protecting your new babies but dive bombing me could cause a strain in our new alliance.

 

Dog Bowl

Dear Diary,
Sunday Mommy & Daddy packed up the car and put me in my crate for a road trip. It seemed like it took furever to get to our destination. It took over an hour! Normally I get sick and don’t like to go to strange places but not only did I NOT get sick but when I came out of the car my ears were up and I was ready to pawty. We went to an event called Dog Bowl 2011 in Frankenmuth, MI. I went a couple of years ago and I was shy & scared at first, but not this time.
I did a lot of butt sniffing, checked out all the vendors and barked to Mommy it was time for a new pink collar, so I got a new collar, a new harness and an awesome revisable bandana. The kind that clicks on, not ties on, it fits me perfectly.
Mommy wanted to see how I did at the Doggie dash De Lure Race. Let us just bark that the event did not live up to the imagine in Mommy’s mind. In Mommy’s mind I ran full speed chasing that stuffed toy lure and came in first place with a huge trophy at my side and a 1st place ribbon wrapped around me. Photographers from all over the world would fight to get my picture. The next day my furry face would be plastered all over the cover of every magazine and newspaper around the world. But what really happened is the lure used in the race was a little plastic bag which I had no interest in chasing and instead chased Mommy around the course, sometimes nipping at her ankles and butt. The second time around I was completely bored with chasing Mommy so I took a few pee breaks on the race course and did some sniffing. The battery that control the lure wore out and Mommy and I walked the last half of the course. Mommy’s dreams were shattered.
I didn’t get to do the 25 & 50 yard dash as it was getting to hot and the races were later in the afternoon. Mommy said we would get them next year. It didn’t matter to me, I much rather play in the fountain. It was so cool & refreshing. I could hop on the stone walls and get a section of the fountain that them big dogs couldn’t get to so I had it all to myself. By 2:30 we were all winding down and needed to go eat so we left and went to Culver’s for burgers. I only got a little bit of Mommy’s as she was worried about me getting car sick.
By the time we got home everybody wanted to take a nap, but that only lasted a few minutes as Mother Nature was having another temper tantrum and the tornado sirens kept going off. Daddy stood guard and watched the skies while I tried to keep Mommy calm by having her rub my belly. Daddy said we left the event just in time as they were getting slammed and there was no where to hide from the storm there. We felt so sorry for all the pups & there owners that were still there. The storm soon passed and I drifted into dream land that lasted till the next morning. I was a sleepy Schnoodle.

Dog Bowl 2011

Dear Diary,
I am going to the Dog Bowl in Frankenmuth to run in the Doggie Dash De Lure Course & race in the 25 & 50 yard dash, weather permitting today. Mommy says she hopes the photographer is there again this year so we can get another family photo.
Mommy says while we are at the event we will look for a new collar for me.
I am not too happy about the ride to the Dog Bowl, it is a long ride. I always throw up on long rides and have to stay in a crate. I don’t like to throw up and I definitely do not like the crate. I much rather be on Daddy’s lap and throw up on him.
Hope all my Dogster friends are having a pawsome weekend.

Dear Diary,
I am stunned to find out my Dogster friend Jack has made his way to the Rainbow Bridge on May 22. His Mommy is hurting something awful and could use our love & support to help her through this difficult time. Today would have been Jack’s 17th Woof-day. Could you please visit Jack’s Dogster page?
Thank you,
Sad Schnoodle

 

Squirrel for lunch...

I left a lasting impression on Mr. Squirrel today…a sharp tooth impression right on his butt! He never saw me coming, I was like lightening! If it wasn’t for the fact that Mommy accidentally stepped on my leash I would have had squirrel for lunch, but instead all I got was a mouthful of fur to make my mouth water. Mommy didn’t let me enjoy it for long as she took the fur out of my mouth.

Dear Diary,
Yesterday Auntie Kim wanted my Mommy to come down and look at her garden so Mommy thought she would bring me along. This would prove to be a bad idea for Mommy. Mommy told me we were going for a little walk but could not stay long as Daddy was making dinner. When we got to Auntie Kim’s house she let Allie, my BFF, out to play with me. I was not really in the mood. Mommy figured my sad mood was due to all the changes in our house, like painters, construction, noise, furniture getting moved around strangers in my house. Auntie Kim even tried to get me to play ball still nothing. Then it happened. Mommy was so stunned she could not even speak to tell me, “NO!” Water came pouring out of a pipe from the ground. First I heard it…ears alert to the sound…then I saw it…I ran and pounced before anybody knew what happened. I stood in a big puddle of muddy water up to my knees, and then I snapped at the water with my teeth trying to kill it. When the water stopped I got mad so I dug my two front paws into the water over & over again as fast as I could covering my entire underbelly in mud. Then I got the zoomies and ran full speed around the yard. The water was coming out of the pipe every 60 seconds and every 60 seconds I was ready for the pounce & kill. By the time Mommy stopped being stunned at my actions I was covered in mud and soaked to the bone. Did I mention I just had a day at the spa? I am a naked dog so this is also my revenge. Mommy leased me and told me enough and we had to go home. When we got home I was taken straight to the bath tub. All that work for nothing.
On another note, when we were Auntie Kim’s I overheard that the Golden Retriever puppy was almost hit by a car. Something has to be done about that stupid owner before that puppy gets killed.

OMD! Things around here are gonna change. I have had it! So what that between working, preparing the gardens and finish up construction on the house Mommy & Daddy do not have a lot of extra time to…REMEMBER YESTERDAY WAS MY GOTCHA DAY! I would have never have known it if it were not for my Dogster pals sending my love & rosettes. I thank you all for remembering me, especially when my own family did not. I sure hope they remember today is my sister Kira’s birthday.
And while I am howling, can you believe Mommy says I am becoming to obsessed about getting that mangy little chipmunk invading my yard and attacking my bird feeders? Here I am running window to window warning of the dangers of the chipmunk and nobody listens! Sure he is little but he is fast…I bet he is like some kind of rodent superhero. He must be destroyed! Mommy even blocked the window with a baby gate! I deal with more abuse here then you can even imagine.

Update on the Golden Puppy: Lots of pups were angered when I wrote in my diary about the Golden that supposedly taught himself to stay in the yard. Mommy & I were walking the other day. The light sprinkle turn into full blown rain as we turned around to go back home. Guess who ran into the middle of the street to greet me? You got it, Harley the golden pup. So here stands Mommy & me in the middle of the street getting soaking wet staring at the house where no humans are in sight. Mommy started to mumble a few things I am not allowed to repeat and we walked over to Harley’s yard where we wrestled a little bit. Mommy so wanted to go home but the pup only followed. After 5 minutes the owner came out. Mommy told him that Harley ran right out into the middle of the street. He didn’t seem to care. As the owner picked up Harley, Mommy pointed down the street at a dog that was pooping on a lawn and said, “Isn’t that one yours too?” He said yes. Mommy shook her head and took me home. Mommy mumbled under her breath all the way home…then she looked at me, soaked to the skin, my little nub of a tail wiggling away and she asked…”How is it when you are home you refuse to step on wet grass to potty but you can wrestle with another dog in the pouring rain?” I just looked at Mommy and wiggled my tail some more…then I saw a bunny and lost my fool mind, barking & pulling in the tall wet grass.

Stormy B. Naughty has been at the Rainbow Bridge since 2008 & Sadie Boo since 2009. Here we are in 2011 and Mommy is still having a hard time with their passing. She misses all the pitter patter of puppy paws on the wood floor, having a whole pack to love and having a whole pack rely on her and need her. Mommy always dreams of getting a puppy but with my aggressive behavior towards any dog in the house and the whole Suzy Q situation Mommy knows that will never happen. Mommy is living vicariously thru HUEY’s Mommy
Mommy took me for a walk the other day. On our walk we kept seeing these blur of fur running in front of us always just out of clear sight. We followed it. Mommy almost lost her mind when she saw it was a Golden Retriever puppy. He looked just like the one in the Cottonelle commercials. Mommy said we had to catch that puppy. We followed & followed what Mommy called the ‘cutest little ball of fluff” just a few houses behind him. Just as Mommy made the comment, “I think we are about to get a puppy!” the puppy ran to a door and was let into a house. I could see the disappointment in Mommy’s face but that soon turned to anger when she wondered why anybody would let a young pup like that run free. A few days later we were walking by that house and guess what came running at me? Yep, the Golden puppy. His name is Harley and he is 9 weeks old. Mommy spoke with the owner while I checked him out. The owner said he is amazed at how Harley has taught himself to stay in the yard all by himself. Mommy had that,”are you really that dumb” look on her face. Mommy wanted to pet the puppy but I was having too much fun playing the chase me game with him and Mommy knew that if she gave the puppy attention I may turn on him. Mommy had to prove a point to the owner that puppies do not train themselves to stay in a yard so she called me so we could continue with our walk and sure enough Harley followed. The owner came and put him back in the yard. A few minutes later into my walk, I turned around to see Harley running full speed down the middle of the street to get to me. We wrestled and waited for the owner to come get him. He didn’t look happy. When he got to Harley, Mommy pointed out that puppies do not teach themselves to stay in the yard. The next day our neighbor said she was at our neighborhood park with her dogs and guess who was there all by himself to join her dogs in fun?…Harley. She said she took him home…there was not a human to be seen. We already have a few dogs that Mommy is always taking home, now we have to add another to our list.
