Thundershirt

[ View A Comments ]

Well with another horrid noisy 4th of July just passed and a looks to be a hot stormy summer ahead. Mommy has decided to order me a Thundershirt. She ordered me a Medium gray tonight & hopes it will fit me properly. Mom has heard good things from some people who use it for fearful dogs . My new furfriend Cookie has just gotten one. She is a very noise phobic/ Severe Sep anxiety AKita/bully mix. Hope to find some pups who have tried it & hear their experience here as well. It is reasonably priced & worth it if it can ease my fearfulness of storms/fireworks etc at all. I will update this entry after I have tried it. Please give us any experience you might have on it as well. Stay cool & safe furs. Hugs & Pokes, Darla

I'm A Yankee Doodle sweetheart who came home furever on the 4th of July!! I love my family friends & Country. Throw me some burger, a bit of hotdog too but please don't throw off those scary noisy bombs. It makes me go more than boo hoo.:( I've got me some Melatonin, Ac& air purifier noise to help me too. My family won't leave me home alone to quake & drool. They spend the holiday with me and that is really great. We celebrate the gift of my coming to my family & the freedoms we have on this day. Like the great Yankee Doodle James Cagney I can give a good poke & a spin or two as well!Haha

Happy 4th of July pals. A Happy Canada day weekend to our Northern pals. I came home 6 years ago on the 4th as a tiny scared 9-10mth old. We celebrate my "BD" Oct 4 on St Francis Feast as it is about 9-10mths before 4th of July. Well I have come along way Baby,grown Fuller but not taller,much like my beloved Mom,BOL!!! Enjoy the Holiday but please keep an eye out for Lost & scared furs who may have gotten out of their homes or yards. It is sadly a very busy time for Animal Control & hope those who get out safely find their home again.
ETA: CK your yard for fireworks debris before letting your furs out . Spray down with water also.
Hugs & pokes, Your Shaky quakky Melatonin buzzed pal Darla!;)

It is easy to take liberty for granted, when you have never had it taken from you. Author unknown

Happy Father's day to every Dad. I love my DaddyO & he loves me. If it wasn't for his insistance at a taking me home I wouldn't be with my family now so Thanks DaddyO. He gives me lots of loving and tons of goodies too,much to Momms agita. He always thinks of me in everything they do. He is my defender & my biggest fan(outisde of Mom). I love to spend my time with him wherever we may be. He might look "scary" to some folks,with Tattoos & his "Brooklynese",just like some are scared of me,but he's got a heart of gold. We should all remember you don't know what's inside until you READ the book. Give all your Dear "Daddy's" a soft kiss & poke for me. Hugs for all whose Daddys are not here on Earth but watching over them still.

 

Feeling Hot hot hot....

Sheesh it was a wicked hot day Wednesday.Thankfully it was cooler today. I have been lazing near my beloved air purifier. It is great, blows out cool fresh air at my level. We had the fans going and it was about as hot inside as out in the 9o's!!!! It is only May not July Mother Nature! Hope all stayed cool as can be. The pawrents thought they were really swift being as it was so hot & I was due for a bath. Mom said to daddyO "oH Hon a bath would cool her off & get her cleaned up all in one." A Real Bright bulb ain't she,bol.

Well I might be panting & sweating but I DON'T Like baths. 4 Letter word & not a nice one in my woofcabulary. I tried to escape but the path was closed off. I turned around & had to get in the tub. Yes it was cooling & I didn't shake/quake too badly. I have my methods at revenge. Yes besides getting them all wet,more sweaty from bathing me there was more in store. I got out & shook tons of my loose undercoat all over the newly clean bathroom & house. They will be finding it everywhere,more than usual. I trot off to do my crazy circles & laze by the cooler air. I got to have my good girl treats, but waited awhile to be sure they were not plotting more torture. They get to clean up AGAIN ,hehehe BOL.
Beware the Question " Wanna cool off Sweetie???" Your loved ones could be plotting this torture for YOU!!! Except you crazy water lovers that is,Bol!
Hugs & pokes, Darla, NOT a Stinky dog.
Even Without a darned B A T H!

HAppy BArks on the Boards this weekend to my Pal JayJay the Yorkie! He walks every year, is top fundraiser fur, to raise money for the furs in need At Ocean City Humane Society,NJ. Thanks Little pal with the big heart.

Happy Memorial Day furs. Well another holiday weekend is upon us. Hoping all have a safe fun weekend in whatever way you choose. We want to remind others what this day stands for, the memory of our service members who have given their "All" for our freedom. We hold your families in our hearts & those who served with you as well. We thank all our service members around the world & keep you all in pawrayer. Pause to say thank you to them & their families or attend a local Parade before your BBQs. They are a wonderful way to show you care & maybe for some pup socialization time too. We remember those who are no longer with us but who are never forgotten. Stay cool furs & enjoy a nice burger or steak for me. We are off to our annual Bbq Sun & I get to go as well yippee. However I don't get to go for the pawrents anniversay date,what gives folks??? I will get a doggy bag I am sure,hehe.

Lil Cuz ..

My little human cousin,2 yrs old, came over tonight beacause his Mommy is in the hospital. His Gumma,My Aunt, had to go up to see her. I LOVE my family & LOVE little kids. He was taken aback for a minute as Aunts dog is a toy poodle but got over it very quickly. He laughed when I kissed him & said oh "Duhwah" like me. He called me Mama most of the time or puppy. He knew to say sit & shush to me too,bol. I was SOOOOO good with him. My pawrents were very proud. I have seen him since a newborn but not frequently when he lied out of state for awhile. He took & played with my toys. I let him play with my "cat balls",which are small squeeky balls I like. He tried throwing toys or my ball for me but I just looked and didn't get them. He said "Duhwa play get it ,is Ok. Cuppy runs (in regard to my aunts toy poodle). He gave me some of my cookies but I only took very gently my usual very small piece. I only like to chew my goodies. He said to me "here more more, she not want." Mommy went to get him some cookies of his own to nibble on. He kept picking up my cookies & brought them to Mommy. Daddy said "Where is he taking the cookies." He had a funny look & said "I put in garbage ,K?" Mommy said Ok. He had a little piece of dog cookie in is mouth & spit it out!! The look on his face was priceless but stunned,like ukk. SO when Mommy gave him his little container of goodies, He said "Oh no Ah Jeanie". Daddy said he probably thought ALL our cookies tasted like mine,bol.

We went out back to potty & he walked with Mommy & me. He tried to pet me when I squatted & fell over on me. I stopped mid peep & he said "OH I sorryy pupppeh". He went up by Daddy & then I finished my business. I let him do anything & no cares. He was soo good but go go go like smart busy toddlers are. I tried to herd him a little bit towards the end . Mommy "nips" that in the bud off the get go. Spoil sport, Sheesh they do call it babysitting don't they? Gotta keep an eye on them right??? I wouldn't hurt/bite him but Mommy says got to watch everything with little kids & dogs. We could accidentally hurt them by knocking them over or they could hurt us . She told him not to take my food if I was eating. This is because not all Doggies are so tolerant as me. I let anyone take anyting I have. I didn't want my AUnt to leave with him & tried to keep her by sitting on her feet. I am tired though from keeping watch. Little kids are fun especially when they are so well behaved. They smell good & also tend to drop food, for those so inclined to grab "freebies" when they can,bol.

 

Want a Dog

If the kids want a dog read this....


Mother doesn't want a dog.
Mother says they smell,
And never sit when you say sit,
Or even when you yell.
And when you come home late at night
And there is ice and snow,
You have to go back out because
The dumb dog has to go.

Mother doesn't want a dog.
Mother says they shed,
And always let the strangers in
And bark at friends instead,
And do disgraceful things on rugs,
And track mud on the floor,
And flop upon your bed at night
And snore their doggy snore.

Mother doesn't want a dog.
She's making a mistake.
Because, more than a dog, I think
She will not want this snake.

-Judith Viorst -


DOGS RULE...snakes slither. sssssssssssssss Bol!

Happy Mother's Day to All! I loves my Mudda,Bol!!!
Pretty interesting for the pawrents to read if they have furless ones in the house.;) I am a dog-cat, so alittle of both,bol.

A Nice Mother's Day quote:
I hope my tongue in prune juice smothers,
If I belittle dogs and mothers. -Ogden Nash,



Kids are Dogs, Teens are Cats
Author Unknown


I just realized that while children are dogs ... loyal and affectionate ...
teenagers are cats.

It's so easy to be a dog owner. You feed it, train it, boss it around. It
puts its head on your knee and gazes at you as if you were a Rembrandt
painting. It bounds indoors with enthusiasm when you call it.


Then around age 13, your adoring little puppy turns into a big old cat.
When you tell it to come inside, it looks amazed, as if wondering who
died and made you emperor. Instead of dogging your doorstep, it
disappears. You won't see it again until it gets hungry ... then it pauses
on its sprint through the kitchen long enough to turn its nose up at
whatever you're serving. When you reach out to ruffle its head, in that
old affectionate gesture, it twists away from you then gives you a blank
stare, as if trying to remember where it has seen you before.


You, not realizing that the dog is now a cat, think something must be
desperately wrong with it. It seems so antisocial, so distant, sort of
depressed. It won't go on family outings. Since you're the one who
raised it, taught it to fetch and stay and sit on command, you assume
that you did something wrong. Flooded with guilt and fear, you redouble
your efforts to make your pet behave.



Only now you're dealing with a cat, so everything that worked before
now produces the opposite of the desired result. Call it and it runs
away. Tell it to sit and it jumps on the counter. The more you go toward
it, wringing your hands, the more it moves away.

Instead of continuing to act like a dog owner, you can learn to behave
like a cat owner. Put a dish of food near the door and let it come to
you. But remember that a cat needs your help and your affection too.
Sit still and it will come, seeking that warm, comforting lap it has not
entirely forgotten. Be there to open the door for it.

One day your grown-up child will walk into the kitchen, give you a big
kiss and say, "You've been on your feet all day. Let me get those dishes
for you." Then you'll realize your cat is a dog again.
