Bad morning at my house

This morning was a bad morning. My Aunt Tracy's dog Bonnie is staying with us while she is away. Mom let both of us out in the yard and she was doing some things in the kitchen before going to work.

The phone rang and it was Aunt Tracy, who is out of town. She asked Mom "Do you have my dog?" That made mom run to look out in the yard.

Mom told Aunt Tracy that Bonnie got out of our yard (somehow the gate was wide open). Aunt Tracy told her that someone had called her and said that they had Bonnie. One of the high school kids found her by the Junior High, checked her tag, called my aunt Tracy. She called my mom who then realized she was not in the yard. The Junior High is across the street behind the neighbors who live on that side.

Mom told her to call the guy back and find out where they were and she would run and get Bonnie. Tracy told the kid where to bring Bonnie back to. Apparently he did not have a hold of Bonnie because Bonnie came running down the street with the boy behind her and zipped into the house. I being the good girl that I am never left the yard.

Mom was so relieved to get Bonnie back. She told Aunt Tracy to call the boy back (but he was in school by then) so she can give him some kind of reward. He really was a good kid to take the time to go over to a loose dog and check the tags and call the owner on his cellphone.

We are so lucky that this story has a happy ending!

 

My 7th Birthday

Today was my 7th Birthday.

I had a great day. My cousin Bonnie is staying with us and we played outside today. Mom made cuppycakes for my birthday. Bonnie and I had to pose in party hats in order to get some cake, but it was worth it. We really enjoyed eating our cuppycake.

I want to thank all my pals for the great gifts on my page. I will be sending you all thank yous. You are all the best for remembering me. I have been on Dogster since I was one year old. I have celebrated all my birthdays on Dogster except for the very first one. I am so happy to have such great friends.

 

Home again!

Mom and dad were on vacation for 3 weeks and I stayed with my furless sister and her dog, Bonnie. I like being with them. Bonnie and I have fun playing together. I did make a list of complaints about the visit:
1. I have to go to doggy daycare when Tracy is working.
2. Tracy does not give me as many treats as I demand.
3. Bonnie always want to play with the toy that I am playing with.
4. Tracy had me groomed at daycare.

When mom and dad picked me up I was very happy to see them but I had to let them know they should not be leaving me and I told them all about it and showed them my list. I watched mom unpack the suitcases and put everything away. She brought me a souvenir....a collar with an attached bandana that says something in French. I would prefer a toy or something I could eat!

Anyways, I am home again and able to play with my Dogster friends. Hope all my pals and their families are safe from the hurricane.

 

Balloons! Everywhere!

OMD! There are balloons all over my page! I used to be afraid of balloons but after a few Rainbow Bridge Day balloon launches, I am now more comfortable around them and like them. I have so many balloons on my page, it might just float away! Thanks Dogster HQ for the opportunity to send balloons to my pals. I sure I hope I did not miss any!

 

Ultimatum

Last night the pawrents went to watch the grandkids in the Marching Band again! Ever since the kids started high school and joined the Marching band, they have been going to all these events to watch them. Parades, Friday night football and now the competitions are starting. I was left alone for at least two hours. When they came home I gave them a good talking too and did crazy zoomies and also spinning around on the bed. I like them to stay home with me. I think I will have to put my paw down and give them an ultimatum: No more going out together! They can take turns.

 

Only fibbing!

Before we go to bed, Dad lets me out or goes out with me. When we come back in, he gives me a treat and then I run and bark at mom and pretend he never gave me one. Once in awhile this works, but usually she asks him or he tells her without her asking (since he hears me barking at mom) that he already gave me a treat. Mom says that dogs are not supposed to lie but I think it is always worth a shot! Even if I only get the extra treat once in awhile, I am going to keep trying. It is not a big lie, only a little fib!

 

Pawrents need to be retrained!

On Monday, Tuesday and Friday, my mom comes home from work later than my normal dinner time so daddy feeds me. Last night he forgot!

When mom got home I figured she would feed me. She came in and started changing her clothes so that she could run over to the high school and see the grandkids in the marching band at the football game. I barked at her and she only gave me a pat on the head and left as soon as she changed clothes. (Note from Bailey's mom: I thought she had been fed)

Now I was really upset I started barking at daddy until he figured out what was wrong. He eventually realized why I was upset and fed me.

I think I need to put Animal Cops on speed dial!

 

Dawgapalooza

In my town, the high school football team is called The Bulldogs and the first home football game was tonight. They had a big event before the game and they call it Dawgapalooza!

News Flash....this is not for dogs! My pawrents went tonight because the grandkids are in the marching band and not only did they not take me with, they left me home alone! I can't believe this. I do not like Dawgapalooza!

 

Rain!

We finally had a good rain. We have been in a drought all summer. We had very few freezing temperature days and very little snow in the winter, an early and extremely warm Spring (80's in March) and then an extremely hot summer without rain. It is also cooler outside now. We really need this rain in our area.

The kids went back to school today so I won't be seeing much of my swimming buddies. Mom has already banned me from the pool if they bring over a bunch of friends to swim anyways, since I hurt my paw last time they were here, trying to be the super lifeguard that I am.

Hopefully dad and I can still hang out at the pool for at least another month before he has it closed for the season. I like our swim time and I like sitting on the glider with him.

 

My sore paw

I am walking (yes even running) again! Mom has discontinued the pain pills and just gave me the anti-inflammatory pill yesterday and I am doing well.

She continues to say that if there are a bunch of kids over, I need to stay in the house so that I do not hurt myself again, running back and forth so frantically. It is hard to keep those kids herded up. They keep moving!

We did discuss my Workmen's Comp claim and I settled for a dozen treats, some peanut butter and a bully stick. My pay will remain the same, in fact, since I will now be watching kids from the dining room windows, I think I will demand a raise!
