Doggie Days at Freedom Park- Sat July 21

July 21st 2007 6:21 pm
[ Leave A Comment ]

This weekend we went to visit my mommy's brother at his house. I like it there because there are stairs that I can stand on and look out the front windows. All the windows at mommy's house are too high to see out of. There is this dog in the yard next door. His name is Dakota and he doesn't like other dogs or people near his turf. Sometimes I play bow near the fence and run back and forth trying to play with him but he just gets grumpy and walks off. I just really wanted to play and mommy saw and knew the perfect answer- dog park time!
So we went to Freedom Dog Park!! I met two dogs when I first arrived and the girl dog stalked me… she was smaller than me but she actually stalked me... it was weird, but her person had to leave so she was only there for a couple minutes. That was the only dog in the front field of the dog park so mom decided to take me over to the creek to see if I wanted to go in the water.
She wasn’t sure because I haven’t been in the water much. Although I jumped in the lake after some geese once, when she took me to a lake she had trouble getting me deeper than my ankles, and there was no way I would go further than I could touch. When I went to the ocean and she went in the water leaving me with her brother on the beach I got away and bounded in after her. It suddenly got deep so I had to swim back, but I still don't really know if I can swim.
At the creek there was a Vizsla named Rocky. He kept jumping in the creek after his ball and I was so excited but I couldn't figure out how to get in. So I started running really fast around in big circles and going up and down the bank but everywhere it was just too steep. Finally I decided to climb down but when I got to the water there were some roots in my way and I could only get my paws wet. I started splashing water up to bite but I really wanted to play with Rocky.
The people (including mommy and her brother) moved down the bank to where there was a place I could get in and soon we were joined by a black lab and his dad. Rocky was really into his ball but the lab was swilling to play a little and next thing you know I am bounding through the water. I loved it. I got soo excited I went in a little too deep before I knew it and quickly swam to shore.
It was fun but mommy wanted to let me dry off and play with some other dogs before we took the car ride home (yuck I don't like the car).
We went back to the front field and I walked around with Molly and Vito two jack russells but they weren't really interested in playing. Then Brownie the beagle mix came. She was a lot of fun we kept rolling on our backs with each other. Two cockers showed up and we all ran around but one of the cockers wasn't used to doggies. She was just adopted and really shy. I wagged my tail and gave her kisses to give her a warm welcome into the doggie community.
After all that running and "swimming" I was all tuckered out. Mommy decided it was time to go but then a golden retriever arrived! I wanted to play and would start to run and stop, and then I was just too tired and laid down.. So mommy walked me to the gate where Brownie gave me a warm send off and we went home.

I just love days like these!

Waggy Week

August 5th 2007 12:24 pm

So this week has been really busy around the house. First the two little ones left on Monday and Tuesday... they are my mommy's nephews. They were visiting for a couple months and I really got used to all of the excitement around here. However with everything going on I hardly noticed they have been gone.
Wednesday mommy took me on two long walks instead of just one and the girls and Pinky came to play. The girls are mommy's two nieces and Pinky is their chihuahua, but she isn't too friendly and doesn't really play with me, but the girls do and I loooove it.
On Thursday mommy and I went to a nearby creek to play. Since I liked the water sooo much at the dog park mommy decided she would take me to play in it more. (Since I don't like the rain she thought I didn't like water... silly mommy... as long as it doesn't splash on my back the water is lots of fun.) I bounded through the shallow water chasing sticks and jumping around mommy. It was so much fun I didn't want to leave. After I got back and dried off while playing in the backyard I got to go to Petsmart for a while, and after walking in the aisles greeting people mommy dropped me off to be groomed. I was all tuckered out and fell right to sleep when I got home.
Friday we just romped in the backyard for a while and then I had to go to the vet and get some vaccinations and bloodwork done. Yuck... but I got lots of treats for being at the vet for less than 15 minutes so I guess it was ok. Plus I got to look at the weird dogs in the fence outside. I walked right up to this big dog with hard shoes on it feet and sniffed it. Mommy laughed and called him a donkey... I don't care what his name is as long as he'll play! Then we went home went for a walk and called it a night.
Saturday, mommy's brother came over and we all played ball in the backyard. Mommy even taught me a new trick. "Touch" she taps an object and says touch and I am supposed to touch it with my paw. I got lots of treats for that too... that is my favorite part of learning new tricks. Then after mommy's brother left and she had dinner we played one of my favorite games inside. It's called "I'm coming to get you!" Mommy "sneaks" around saying she is going to get me and I run away and back all excited. Then after a while of her getting me I get to chase her.
So today has been a good break so far but once it cools down a little mommy says we are going to the dog park! YEAH! I hope I meet some nice puppies to play with.
It's been a pawriffic week for me. Hope all you pupperoos out there are having fun too!

 

Twilight Hunt

As twilight came I bounded across the yard feeling the blades of grass between my pads, frolicking in the coolness that comes with a summers eve. Mommy calls out something from behind but it is not a command to me so I continue going on my eventide revel. Perusing the lush greenery that is my ambit, I partake in an occasional nibble of the verdure.
As I start to run towards mommy, an exciting game of chase me on my mind suddenly I sense something. Turning I quickly begin searching and searching for the source of this delectable smell. My nose on fire with scintillating scents I circle and search, widening my area and then running back to where the smell is strongest. My tail a quiver with excitement my body completely overtaken by the sheer exhilaration of the hunt. Circle upon circle.... sniffing... searching... scouring the area over and over... but alas I can not discover the source of this entrancing aroma.
I hear mom giggle calling me a silly puppy. Saying that same bunny word she cried out earlier. Alas I decide that the scent's allusive source will not be found... at least not this eve and I continue on my evening gambol.

Letter from Camp

August 15th 2007 12:16 pm
[ Leave A Comment ]

I just got this letter from Odie today and figured I would put it up for him while he is away.

Dear Mommy,

I am having a great time at camp. It is a lot of fun here. I get to run around and play with all sorts of doggies during the day. At lunchtime we get to go to our cabins and eat and if we want take a little nap and then it is back to playing! Some nights the camp counselors give us special campfire treats before going to bed. I am so glad I have my travel bed and my teddy bear with me. It makes sleeping here feel just like home.

I have met some really nice pups and I will tell you all about them when I see you. Some of my closest friends this week at camp have been black and yellow labs, but my best buddy is a golden retriever. There is also a great Bassett hound who has been here since Sunday too. All the pooches are great and I will miss them all when I leave.

While running around and playing I like to walk over and check on the smaller pups in the play area next door. They are great and I wish I could play with them too, but I have got plenty of playmates. I figure that I should at least walk up and say hello to the little guys from time to time though. I also always keep an eye out for new puppies that will be joining us. I make sure I am right there to welcome them to camp with a warm waggy hello! I don’t want anyone to feel left out…. That isn’t what camp is about. It is about being a pack player and getting along with everyone.

Sometimes I go outside and play on the Forked River Mountain toys. I walk up one side and down the other and sometime stand on the top and play king of the hill with the other pups. But when everyone starts running around I just get so excited I forget to stay at the top and I run down to play with everyone.

I love it here!! Camp is so much fun- we get to play, eat, get treats and sleep and there are practically no rules!! The only rule is to treat your fellow campers as you would want to be treated, and that is super easy for me. I can do anything I want. I mean I am allowed to jump up on the fences and the counselors. I don’t have to ask to go outside to potty and I can go inside or outside whenever I want!

So mommy I was thinking… could we maybe start our own camp. I would love to have other puppies around all day that I can play with. I would be really good and say hello to all of them. Please.
I miss you and hope you are having as much fun as me. I miss talking and playing with all my dogster pup pals too so tell them I am having a great time and miss them too. I am getting pretty sleepy so I think I am going to take a little nap before I go back out to play.

Tail wags and kisses,

Odie

 

Sicky Poo... Poo

Hey there everybody. I am so happy to be back home and able to talk to all my pals here on Dogster. *sniffle, sniffle* I met a lot of good pals at camp this time including a wonderful black lab named Abby Labby and my bestest bud the golden retriever Mickey. I also met another Dogster pup there named Ace who is a German shepherd like me. Unfortunately *snort, sniffle* I also met one other thing at camp… a nasty upper respiratory infection. *sniffle*

I am all icky sicky and tired and mommy can just tell I am miserable. I was having some trouble with my breathing so mommy took me to the ER last night, which also is my normal vet too. When I got there it was all dark and spooky. Normally I am ok at the vet but it was all dark and stuff and it just wasn’t the same. *snort* I was kind of scared and being sick I just wanted to go home. Also the nice nursey ladies who using take care of me weren’t there either *sniffle, sniffle* and I was all confused and tired. I got sent home with some medicine right away. Turns out I was reverse sneezing and that was what the labored breathing was all about. I am glad I got the medicine because that means I get to eat meaty bits to take it twice a day for ten whole days without having to do a thing for it. Yeah!. I am just so sleepy *yawn, sniffle sniffle*

So funny enough it turns out that right when mommy got home from her vacation she had to go to the ER too. She had an allergic reaction to something and had itchy hives all over. So like puppy like owner I guess. *sniffle* Two days… two trips to the ER *sniffle, sniffle* Been a busy time. Well I am going to go lay down and get some shut eye.

 

Been love tagged again!! Yipee!

I've been love tagged by my cute friend Taco!!
So the rules are if you get love tagged by a dog write in your Diary as many dogs that you love as friends or as mates, and tell in there how and why you love them!!

So first up is Jasmine (372485) She is a pawsome pooch who has a mommy who really loves her. Plus you have to love those ears!!

Next is Izzi the Princess of Puppyville (591736) because besides being royalty (and my friend... aren't I lucky) She also know that harassing her boys is sooo important!

Gracie (173250) is next. She is a beautiful black lab and I sure hope she wins the wag and brag contest she is in. Plus her and her family are the reason mommy joined Dogster and let me have all this fun.

Brutis (449770) is a handsome fella who any girl pup would be lucky to have.

and last but certainly not least is

Hunter (587049) whose confessions make me wag my tail! Chicken New Year back at you Hunter!

 

Ahh.. finally I can breathe!!!

Yeah!! Yippeee! Skipppie!! I am feeling sooo much better. There is no schpooge coming from my nose anymore. No schpooge! No Schpooge! Yeah! No mommy chasing me with Kleenexes. I mean I wouldn’t mind if she let me shred them but she would just wipe my nose and then take it away. Ooooo and the endless sniffling and snorting has finally ended. I thought it would never end. I even barked funny when I started barking again. It is terrible to have schpooge coming out your nose and I wouldn’t wish it on anypup!
So other than nappies, lots of medicine, some shorter walks and a little backyard time life has been pretty dull around here. I have gotten to enjoy some home-cooked meals courtesy of my mommy and an order from the doctor. She likes cooking for me and I am working on persuading her to a home-cooked diet, but she says she will have to look into it more first.
I can’t wait until I am all better! Then I will finally get to dig into those yummy looking treats I got from Kilo K9 for playing in the water. (easiest treats I ever got) They look soo yummy!!!
