Birthday: February 19th 2005
Likes: Car rides!!! Walks!!! SNACKS!!! Belly rubs. Sleeping until 1:00 pm. My sister (should probably be closer to the beginning of the list - but we'll see where I end up on her list!!). Big Dogs (I'm going to be one someday).
Pet-Peeves: No blowing in the ears!! Evil Arch Nemesis the Squirrels!! Getting out of bed to go outside - my human lives in Seattle - it rains here ALOT. Baths. Not having whatever it is that my sister has - unless it's that stupid Teddy Bear toy.
Favorite Toy: Elephant. Bones. Snacks to tease sister with since I savor mine (civil) while SHE scarfs hers (barbarian). The kitties - but don't tell anyone.
Favorite Food: Wet cat food - gotta be cute to get that. Greenies!! Snausages. Some human stuff - but not much - they eat weird stuff!!
Favorite Walk: Anywhere - the more dogs the better!! Please can we take the our cat Lucy??? Lift my leg - HIGH as I can!! Magnuson Park w/ our dog walker Lou Ann.
Best Tricks: Sitting up until you notice he is "cute" and then tell him. Heat leeching the lap heat. "Scoot"ing closer to the free hand. High 5. Hugs. UP. Sleeping. Stick 'Em Up (I sit up).
Arrival Story: I was the cute one at the puppy agents. I came out immediately and worked my cute charm and was picked up at once. I bonded w/ the male human entity and the day was over. However the female human entity had bonded w/ one of my sisters and a talk ensued. A "hold" was put on me (I like to think) and the humans left. Soon they came back and I was off on my next venture. It was sad to leave the rest of the family - but the humans brought along my sister Misty!!!! HAPPY DOG DAYS!!! I hope everypup out there is aware of how pawsome it is to be cute! Work that charm and you get all kinds of special treatment.
Bio: I was much smaller than my sister to begin with. The female human entity kept calling me someting like "runt"??? I have since outgrown my sister by a whole inch and a whopping 4 oz. Take that female human!!
These are a few of my favorite things:: I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE car rides!! Sometimes Mom tells me to hide from the "Authority" but otherwise I'm in the drivers seat! Walking at night is fun when we get to take Lucy the Kitty with us - she's our other best friend. Hate getting up in the morning - Mom has to drag me out from under the covers and take me outside in bad weather. She get's a Rrrr for that. She thinks it's funny - I'm serious!! No wet paws unless there is WALKING involved. Love keeping all the snacks to myself to tease my sister - she snarfs them down instead of savoring them. Love belly rubs and will Vulcan mind meld you by staring lovingly at you until you comply. Love going to see the humans Lou Ann, Patrick, George and the Big Dog - Booger. I'm going to be a big dog someday - I just know it. In the winter I have to sleep under the covers (hey good enough for the un-furbearing - good enough for me). I turn on full scale "cute charm" by either sitting up forEVER or by just being "Scooter". PS - I was supposed to be "Pepe" and my sister Misty was supposed to be "Fifi" but the human female refused to yell that across any public venue. Instead Scooter I am - cuz if there is a free hand - I'm "Scootin" to it.
After waking Mom up this morning with my wheezing and horking up a nice green glob of booger it was decided I was going to see Dr. B. I started shaking as soon as Mom put me in the car thinking it was way too soon for another butt squeeze!
Soon as we got their, we were hustled into the room of shame. I call it that because they closed the bottom and the top of the doors on each side of the examination room because Mom thought I might have kennel cough. All because I was snorking and horking up green globs of boogers.
Dr. B gave me the all clear on no Kennel Cough and that I had some sort of stuffed up nose going on. My lungs are clear, the rattling Mom hears is just the gunk in my nose. BOL.
I get to take a pill 2 times a day with cheese. Mom mumbled that Bo Obamacare had better get it's kinks worked out so she can sign us up for coverage. 2 weeks worth of pills should not cost more than 1 week of human food shopping!
I also gained a pound since my last visit and Dr. B looked over his glasses at Mom giving her the "Look". I chose to leap into Mom's arms to distract her from retaining the knowledge of how much I weigh. Good thing I like those carrots! BOL
So I still have boogers, but at least they aren't contagious. Dr. B even asked me to come back and visit him sometime when I don't have a problem. Sorry Dr. B, I've yet to stop by when something wasn't poked up my hind end. I don't even know Mom well enough to think that is acceptable behavior. Although shoving my fuzzy butt into her face in the middle of the night seems acceptable to me. BOL.
I got the sniffles and may have passed it along to the entire Papillon Pack. I went in for my butt squeeze last, last weekend and now I'm wheezing and sniffling and sneezy. I have green boogers that Mom says are disgusting at o'dark o'clock when she can hear they have been discharged at full sneeze volume.
Mom says I might have kennel cough and until we get to Dr. B we will continue to video my wheezing because this isn't something done on demand. So Dr. B can't give us the "allergy" excuse because green snot is not allergy. Nor is 2 of 4 dogs waking up in the middle of the night "snorking" as Mom calls it.
Sniffle at you later, but only until Mom takes me to Dr. B for evaluation.
