I'm Not A Chicken

Mom is at it again. She's starting to pluck me. Mom, I am not a chicken. Just because I'm starting to shed and it comes out in tufts, I do not need to have it plucked. I really think Mom needs professional help. Is there a "Pluckers Anomonyus"?

Mom would love to take me in to the groomer and have me professionally combed out, but this girl is not going anywhere. Did you see what happened to Callies tail last time they took her in. No thank you, just leave me alone and it will all eventually fall out naturally. Mom says the birds need some fluffy stuff for their nests, and it would be neighborly of me to leave some in the grass for them. I know Mom's tricks. She wants to pluck and comb and then comes the "B" word BATH. I am not letting her trick me into a bath this summer. I am putting my foot down - all four. I have places to hide. I have been fertilizing the shrub rose this sping and it is huge now and I have found a safe place to hide in there. Even if Mom finds me she'll have trouble getting me out without getting all scratched up.

Give up Mom - no bath for me this summer OKAY?????

You guys won't believe this. Dogster made me Diary of the Day today. What an honor. It made my Mom's day. I guess I must have learned a few things from Raffles. He's the king of gab.

I made a lot of new friends today. It really was a fun day.

I hope I've thanked everyone who sent me a gift or left a message. You guys are the best.

Strange Bedfellows

Okay guys, don't believe everything my brother Raffles tells you. Yes I will admit there was an opossum in my kennel last night. But, I'm a lady and I don't kiss and tell. Let's leave it at that. My lips are sealed. Hey everyone gets lonely some nights.

We Lost Monkey Face

Raffles went to the Rainbow Bridge this morning. It is very sad at our house. He and I didn't always get along, but he was the apple of Mom's eye. She got him when he was about 6 weeks old. He made it to 10.5 years and then that nasty brain tumor got him.


We were very happy when the sun came out this morning. It shined in the kitchen window and right on Raffles laying on Mom's lap. He got that one last sunbeam to guide him to the bridge.

Callie and I will work overtime to keep Mom from being sad. Mom says we will all meet one day at the Rainbow Bridge.

New Cushions

Mom got new cushions for the patio furniture so guess who got the old ones. That's right, lucky me. One in in my kennel and one is on the porch right by the door. My old bones love cushions.

The weather here is trying to behave, but it's raining this weekend. Maybe by the middle of May we will have sunny warm days. I hope so. My brother Raffles is not doing well and Mom hopes he can enjoy some warm sunny days before he has to leave us. He loves to lay out on the warm sidewalk and work on his tan. When he gets hot he runs in the house. This will go on for hours. Mom says we should install a revolving door.

I try to stay outside most of the time because Mom says we have to try and keep Raffles stress free. As soon as he sees me, he goes bezerk. Go figure. I'm the sweetest girl. Ask Dad.

Gotta go I hear my breakfast calling.

Maleka.

 

Oh no, a day at the Vet

Dad put my leash on yesterday morning and I got so excited. Dad's taking me for a walk. WRONG! He took me to the vet for my 6 month checkup. Rats. Not fun, shots and poking and proding in places I'm too ladylike to mention. I was there for hours, but I survived and Dad finally picked me up and took me home. I got a clean bill of health - my pancreatitis tests were normal - Yay. I have to admit I like it better when Mom picks me up, because she always stops at McDonalds as a treat for the stressful day. All Dad gave me was a hard biscuit.

Mom gave me a beautiful red, white and blue blanky to add to my collection in my kennel. It's very soft. Today is rainy and dreary - no sun. I've been spending my time in my kennel, on the porch and in the house. I can't stay in the house too long. Raffles is cranky and doesn't want me around. The poor little guy had another seizure this morning and then for some reason he gets crabby with me. I'm really a very sweet girl. Can I help it if I never realize he's so short and I don't see him and walk right over him. It's always and accident, honestly.

It's A Great Day for Sleeping in the Sun

Mom and Dad cleaned up the backyard a few days ago. It was like a mine field. The snow had melted and there were a lot of hidden piles. With 4 dogs in the backyard, its tough for Mom to find daylight in the winter to pick everything up. Now I can sleep anywhere. It's also a challenge to see if the grass comes back up. That's Dad's job to grow new grass each year. I do see a lot of dried grass so there is some hope.

Mom would like to make part of the sunny side of the yard a vegetable garden but Dad won't let her. He keeps talking about someday he might want to have a boat sitting there. Mom says that will never happen. He spends too much time playing golf, he would never have time for a boat and Mom doesn't do boats, she has a motion sickness thing. Dad dug up a small area and fenced it in right in front of my kennel and said Mom could plant in there. Nice try Dad but it was all shade. Mom put in hostas.

I wonder sometimes why Mom and Dad ever got together, they just don't seem to have anything in common, except us of course.

Gotta go and stretch out in sun.

Mom Says I Was A Maniac Today

Mom got home first for a change today. I ran out of my kennel so fast, I almost ran into the back door. As soon as Mom opened the door I ran in knocking Raffles over and sliding through the kitchen. I'm free, I'm free. Mom was not pleased. She says that's why Raffles can't stand me because I never see him and run him down. I just get so excited. I get bored during the day.

I guess I do have to be careful. One time I knocked Mom over and she was on crutches for days and had a bruised hip that took over 6 months to heal. Boy was I in trouble. I just don't seem to get very good traction in the kitchen.

Callie has a sore leg or foot. She's been limping since this morning. I guess I'll have to steer clear of her for a bit.

Well nothing much going on in the house, I'd better go outside on perimeter patrol.

Staying Warm

It has been cold today. The sun came out so I tried to stay outside for awhile curled in a chair on the porch in the sun. But Mom finally coaxed me into the house.

Raffles doesn't like me to be too close to him. For some reason he just doesn't like me. He calls me Moose and Horse, just because sometimes I don't see him and walk right over him.

The little guy is doing okay. There's nothing we can do but keep him comfortable on his medication and hope for the best. He hasn't had any more seizures since that terrible night in January. That was a scary time.

He sure does get crabby when he's hungry. Mom says the medicine he's on makes him really hungry. He's such a sweet boy when he's sleeping. Mom told me that a couple of kids thought he was a pit bull yesterday. That really was good for his ego. He always thinks he look macho.

I'm sleeping on Mom's chair and Callie and Raffles are about a foot away, but everyone is sleeping so it's very quiet. Mom is going to read us a story later and then we'll go to bed. For some reason, Mom likes to read us mysteries. No wonder I have such strange dreams.

Night, night - Maleka

 

My Brother is Sick

My brother Raffles has a brain tumor. The doctors say it can't be surgically removed, because he wouldn't be the same little monkey face. We are all very sad. Mom is still waiting to find out if radiation or chemo would be an option. I try to stay away from him as much as possible because he gets very upset with me and I don't want to stress him right now.

Callie and I were there when the seizures started last Saturday, it was very scary and then Mom and Dad rushed him to the hospital. Callie and I howled all the time they were gone. We didn't know what else to do. We were very scared.

He came home Monday night and he looks the same but inside things are not so good. We just have to pray and hope for the best. He can be a royal pain in the butt to me, but he's my royal pain and I like having the little guy around.
