10 ways the humans would know the dog they had was not me

Ten ways the humans can tell the dog they have is not me:

1) I walk in the house instead of run. I run through the house as fast as my little legs will take me. Run, run, run; I don't walk!

2) I don't bark while the humans are eating. I always bark at them to remind them to share. If I don't bark it can't be me.

3) If I refuse an ice cube it can't be me because I love to chew on ice cubes.

4) Even better than an ice cube is a Popsicle. If you offer me a lick of your Popsicle and I refuse, it can't be me because I love popsicles.

5) If you throw a toy at me and I don't try to catch it in my paws it can't be me. I love to play catch but I'm not too good at it yet.

6) If I don’t want to sleep in the crate at night it can’t be me because I love my crate and always go in it no matter what.

7) If you try to take my cookie away and I let you without a fight it can't be me because I do not give up my cookies to anyone. I will bite to defend my cookies.

8) If you give me a bath or comb me and I do not fuss, then it can't be me because I hate both and will struggle and fuss the whole time.

9) If I want to sit on your lap it can't be me because I am not a lap type gal. I want to be next to you but not on you.

10) If I always want to be with you it can't be me because I am independent I’m comfortable being alone.

 

It's raining

Being a native Southern Californian I am spoiled with nice sunny days. Sure we get small rain storms that come our way but the fact that we are on water restrictions due to declining water levels in our local dams is a good indicator of how un-frequent and little those rain storms are.

Yesterday and today it rained like crazy. The main road to our house is flooded and closed to all traffic until the water recedes (there is a back route that momma can take to avoid this area so she can still get to work).

I spent most of the day napping, wrestling with Puffy and begging for treats. I also spent a good part of the day laying on the daybed watching the rain fall.

Momma was at work but was cooking a pot of Chili in the crock pot so the house smelled really good although I would have perferred momma to cook some chicken instead.

Daddy works out of the house so he made Puffy and I go outside around noon to do our business in the rain!!!! I said "Nope - not going to do it under these conditions" and ran back into the house. Puffy followed my lead and came back inside and we both went to the sewing room.

Momma had planned ahead and put the shower curtain down on top of the sewing room carpet just in case one of us had an accident. I'm happy to say there were no accidents on the precious carpet however daddy did have to strip off the bedding because someone left a present on the quilt - oops. I'm going to say Simba Blue my kitty brother did it - that's my story and I'm sticking to it - BOL

Football Sunday

January 17th 2010 6:50 am
[ View A Comments ]

It's Sunday at our house and that means daddy will park his behind in his chair and watch football all day today. He will only come out of his room to go the bathroom or to get something to eat or drink. Nothing else will get him out of that chair today. I can go prancing into his room and try to get him to play with me but he won't because he will be possessed by the TV screen. To make matters worse, the Chargers are playing today so daddy will have on his Charger leisure wear (PJ bottoms and a t-shirt). Momma said she is going to put Puff and me in our Charger shirts too so that we can help support the Chargers - whatever!!!!

Hugs and kisses.

Puff's new crate

Momma bought Puffy a new crate because he destroyed the last one that he had. He ripped out the zipper and shreaded the nylon fabric. The new crate is made out of hard plastic and metal. It's so nice I was waiting for momma to bring in another one for me but she didn't. Momma said that if Puff doesn't sleep in the new crate then I can have it if I want. I always go into my crate and Iwant the flap zipped closed afterwards that way I can be sure Simba Blue my kitty brother won't bother me during the night. I think tonight I might sleep in the new crate just to try it out.

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose

 

California weather

The weather today is in the low 70"s with the sun shining down and a few white fluffy clouds in the sky. The wind is gently blowing so that the leaves are dancing on their stems. Children are outside riding their scooters, bides and skate boards.

Tonight it is expected to get down to the low fourties.

Anyhow we have a fireplace in the living room if any of you want to come over and thaw out we would love to have you.

Hugs and kisses

Shake, Rattle and OHHHHH

California had a 6.5 earthquake tonight. It was felt mostly on the coastal areas. I didn't feel a thing. Momma always gets nervous when earthquakes happen because it's only a matter of time before "the big one hits". Those of you who have never experienced a earthquake they are very scarry. There is no warning and all of a sudden you hear a very load rumbling and your house will start swaying. Sometimes it sways just a little and other times the swaying is enough to cause the house to fall apart. And if you are driving the roads can sway and buckle. One of the biggest problems is that gas mains break and start fires. After the earthquake hits, a series of after shocks rumble through. Some of them are minor but others are quite sizable and can do as much damage as the original quake.

Chat with you later I have to go find a hardhat to wear.

Hugs and kisses

Last night momma and daddy went out to dinner and you know what they brought back for Puff and I? NOTHING!!!! Not one tiny smidgen of anything and I know they had good stuff because I could smell it on momma's breath. They went to a Chinese Buffet and had lots of good stuff and Puff and I got dog food. Now I ask you which one would you rather have: Yummy Chinese or dry dog food?

Hugs and kisses,

A Pet's Ten Commandments

Someone sent the below to momma and we liked it so much we wanted to pass it on. We don't know who the original author:

A Pet's Ten Commandments...

1. My life is likely to last 10-15 years. Any separation from you is likely to be painful.

2. Give me time to understand what you want of me.

3. Place your trust in me. It is crucial for my well-being.

4. Don't be angry with me for long and don't lock me up as punishment. You have your work, your friends, your entertainment, but I have only you.

5.. Talk to me. Even if I don't understand your words, I do understand your voice when speaking to me.

6. Be aware that however you treat me, I will never forget it.

7. Before you hit me, before you strike me, remember that I could hurt you, and yet, I choose not to bite you.

8. Before you scold me for being lazy or uncooperative, ask yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps I'm not getting the right food, I have been in the sun too long, or my heart might be getting old or weak.

9. Please take care of me when I grow old. You too, will grow old.

10. On the ultimate difficult journey, go with me please.. Never say you can't bear to watch. Don't make me face this alone. Everything is easier for me if you are there, because
I love you so.

 

Broken laptop

Momma broke the mouse button on the computer so Daddy is going to take it to the computer hospital tomorrow. The computer still works but the mouse only works some of the time. If the computer gets admitted to the hospital we (Puff and I) might be gone for a while. If you don't see us for a while that is what happened.

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose
