10/04/13 You won’t believe what happened – really

Hi pals,

How could the humans put me in jail? I’m royalty you know. It all started early Tuesday morning when they got up before the roosters and loaded up the truck. Simba was put in a medium size carrier and Arleenton was in a tiny one. Puffy and I were forced to ride on a tiny section of the floor behind the front seats. The ride to the vet’s office takes about 75 minutes and before I even had a chance to sniff around, I was taken back behind the doors that no one ever sees what happens. I’ll tell you there were lots of crying dogs and cats begging and pleading to be let go.

Puffy and I were shoved into one jail cell together, while Simba and Arleenton occupied a jail cell of their own. Momma had packed lots of food and treats for each of us along with two stuffies for Puffy and me.

Puffy cried and cried because he thought he was being re-homed again. Me, I just sat there and asked “okay, where are my cookies?” All wouldn’t have been that bad except for I had to have a pedicure and the hair removed from my ears. I don’t like either procedure but after wards, I once again asked “WHERE ARE MY COOKIES?”

Things were a little rougher for Puffy. He is still having problems with the thyroid medication getting it adjusted right so he had to have his blood tested, he was due for a booster shot and he too got a pedicure.

Today the humans came and bailed us out of jail and boy were we happy to see them. In fact, Puffy was so happy to see daddy that he went running towards him (he was on a leash), and right as he came out of the door to the exam room, he was attacked by a huge brown dog. Yes, the dog tried to kill my furbrother. The vet technician who was bringing Puffy out pulled him back by the leash and Puffy scrunched down so the big dog just barely missed grabbing him by the neck. Puffy was so frightened that he peed. The technician took Puffy back into the back and had the vet check Puffy over to make sure he wasn’t hurt. The man who had the two huge brown dogs was elderly and was having issues controlling the dogs because they were too much for him to handle. Momma missed the whole thing because she was putting our stuff in the truck while daddy was collecting us. Puffy was now covered in dirt and pee and had to ride in the truck that way, but at least he wasn’t covered in blood and had no injuries.

Everything was actually pretty good and the people at the vet office really like Arleenton because they hardly ever have a rabbit to look after, especially one who eats baby food - BOL. Simba Blue was unhappy the whole time but it was nice having him there with us.

I heard the humans drove to California for the wedding, then came back through Arizona and daddy decided he wanted to go see Durango Colorado. They drove by the Four Corners monument but due to the Government shut down it was closed. Daddy did a lot of driving this week.

And when I logged onto Dogster I discovered our Dogster Plus membership has gone away. Momma sent a check to Dogster before it was due to expire, but since the old membership was done by Pay Pal when they (Pay Pal) went to automatically renew the membership they discovered that momma had canceled her credit cards so they canceled her subscription. Needless to say momma sent the Dogster team an email asking them to fix everything and to please restore the photos.

It’s good to be home: I need a much needed nap and several cookies now.

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose


09/30/13 The wedding

Hi pals,

I got a haircut today along with a bath, ears cleaned and flea stuff put on me. Early tomorrow morning Puffy, Simba and Arleenton will be dropped off at the vet's office for boarding. Momma is NOT happy with this but decided it was the best solution plus we get a "group" discount - BOL, BOL. Their prices are more than reasonable as it is 15 dollars per dog, per night, and 10 dollars per cat. We are guessing it will be 10 dollars for Arleenton also.

I'll bark at you when we get back at the end of the week.

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose


09/27/13 Locked up again

September 27th 2013 7:55 pm

Hi pals,

Ole Puffy and I were once again locked in the bedroom while the humans went to town and stocked up on canned and boxed goods. Winter is approaching and the weather service is predicting lots of snow and after getting snowed in last year they want to make sure the panty is well stocked. Since the humans are going to the Nephews wedding in California next week they choose not to buy any meats just in case there is a power outage while they are gone. Quite frankly, I think daddy is conditioning momma for when we get boarded. Momma had told daddy that she didn’t want to board us but the humans couldn’t come up with a feasible solution on what to do with us during the wedding and reception, so we are getting boarded. Momma is going to have separation anxiety, as is Puffy. Me, I’ll be just fine as long as I have a steady supply of cookies.

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose


09/26/13 There ought to be a law against what happened to- us

Hi pals,

Please run into the kitchen and grab yourself a couple of cookies and then hurry back here because I have lots to tell you about what happened yesterday.

Go ahead and get your cookies and I’ll wait until you get back………………………

Okay, are you comfortable? Did anyone think to bring me a cookie or two? Well, never mind, I have lots to tell you so I’ll get started.

Zoe and Fizzy – stop barking at Zaidie and Jelly and pay attention.

Demon and Buddy - stop playing around and settle down.

Petey – now is not the time to tell me you have to go potty. What? Okay – hurry outside and when you come back in I’ll start. If anyone else needs a potty break now is the time to do it.

Mr. Cutter, Pepper and Misty, stop picking on Scooter. Scooter why don’t you come up here and sit by Hobo and me?

Puffy - if you don't stop squeaking that stuffie I'm going to take it away from you.

Winkie - Can you see okay way in the back? I can make room for you up here if you want.

Ceeley - I have a nice soft pillow for you to lay in so your feetsie will be comfortable.

Okay, let's get started: Yesterday, before the rooster even crowed, the humans were up and dressed. It has been getting cold in the early morning hours here in New Mexico but that didn’t stop momma from putting Puffy and me outside to do our business. I don’t know about you, but this pup can not piddle on command and so I wandered back to the French door and waited until they were opened to let me inside the house.

The first thing I noticed when I came back inside was the stairs that are on the side of the bed which allow Puffy and I to have access to the big bed were missing. Momma filled our water bowl, gave Puffy his medication and then we each got a cookie. About this time, daddy came into the bedroom and once again Puffy and I were escorted back outside and told to “do your business”. Shesh, what part of "I DON’T NEED TO GO” do you not understand?

Anyhow, momma had put down one disposable wee-wee pad and two washable one, plus an old blanket on the bedroom floor. She secured the baby gate across the doorway, told Puffy and I to be good doggies and off she left with daddy.

It turns out that the humans drove to Tempe, Arizona which is a little more than five hours away, one way! They went shopping at IKEA, Bed, Bath and Beyond plus stopped at a tile store. Daddy bought shelves for the pantry, bookcases for his media room and granite tiles for the kitchen counters.

In totally, they were gone for more than 15 hours! Yes, Puffy and I were held in prison the whole time so to show our displeasure, we piddled on the floor in the bedroom, not on any of the wee-wee pads or the blanket – BOL. I think the humans should have considered themselves lucky that neither Puffy or I did a number 2 download during our jail time.

Anyhow, we were so happy to see the humans when they got home that our tails wagged and wagged. I ran to momma and asked her what she bought me and do you know what I got? NOTHING! That’s right, I heard momma tell daddy that they should have stopped in at Pet Smart because there was one right by the Bed, Bath and Beyond store, but they didn’t. What kind of humans would lock their loving pups up for hours and then not bring them anything?

Do you all think that is right?

Coco reaches into her growing bone collection and picks out a tasty bone and starts nibbling on it – “Pups, I have been traumatized so I better go lay down now. Let yourselves out and make sure you LEAVE MY COOKIES ALONE.

Hi pals,

There will be no TV at our place until October because daddy backed into the satellite dish and knocked it off its stand. He tried to stand it back upward by propping it up but it no longer receives the satellite signal. Hopefully the dish people will be able to come out before it starts raining again or else there will be no TV until sometime next year – YIKES!!!

Life here in the rural areas is full of complications but on the bright side, it will give Puffy and me something to bark about – BOL.

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose

PS - It sure would be nice if there were some other FOREVER rosettes in the Dogster gift shop. A BEAUTIFUL set of FOREVER wings would look really nice on my Angel pal's pages. Are you listening Dogster?


09/23/13 Who me? Why thank you Dogster

Thank you Dogster for allowing my diary to be one of the featured diaries of the day. May I suggest to my pals that they click on the below link and send the number 1 featured diary some love? Lady recently passed away and her momma left a very loving tribute on her page. As some of my pals know, I am campaigning that Dogster recognize International Rainbow Bridge day on April 1st and modify their gift shop to include more FOREVER rosettes geared towards pals that are now Angels.


Please do not send me any rosettes, instead some nice, tasty bones would be appreciated.

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose


09/21/13 Excavator and Rainbow Bridge campaign

September 21st 2013 4:07 am
[ View A Comments (6) ]

Hi pals,

There’s going to be a lot of barking done at our property today and tomorrow. The humans went to Gallup and rented something called an excavator and according to momma it was another heart attack moment for her. Apparently when the rental company was driving the excavator onto the trailer which was connected to daddy’s truck the weight of the “Mini” excavator caused the front of the truck to lift from the ground and since momma was sitting in the truck, she got scared. Once the excavator was all loaded up, the humans had to drive about 50 miles home and daddy’s truck had a hard time towing the heavy load.

Daddy is going to use the excavator to dig trenches to channel water that runs through our property away from the house. This should be interesting since daddy has never driven one before and got a crash course on how to operate the excavator from the people at the rental place. Keep your fingers crossed that nothing bad happens.

Now on to my Rainbow Bridge campaign…I know Dogster offers the Guardian Angel star in the gift shop that lasts forever, but I would really like a pair of angel wings that also last forever. Currently the Dogster gift shop only has the above mentioned star: they also have the rainbow, a burning candle, and a pair of lovely Angel wings which only last for one month. Our Angel pals stay with us in our hearts and memories forever and it would be nice if we had a bigger selection of forever gifts to give to them. I think I should add the forever heart to this list also because I have been know to send that to some of my pals to let them know that they will always be in my heart. Anyhow, having April 1st as a day to remember our departed pals would be wonderful along with a variety of forever gifts that could be sent to them. Here is a list of suggestions:

(all of the below are “Forever” rosettes)
St. Francis medal
Forever loved banner

If any of my pals can think of anything else they would like to send to Angel pals please leave a comment and momma will add it to the list the next time we mention forever Angel gifts that we would like to have.

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose


09/20/13 Open request to Dogster/Catster

September 20th 2013 9:40 am
[ View A Comments (8) ]

Dear Dogster/Catster,

I have recently sent you a check for the renewal of my Plus membership and must tell you that even with some of the frustrating fleas and ticks that sporadically pop up on your site, that I enjoy playing here, most of the time. One of the things I really love about Dogster/Catster is that members are not allowed to get nasty with other members or in what they are writing. If I wanted raunchy and disrespectful I would be watching “Here comes Honey Boo-Boo”.

Anyhow, I have a very special request that I would like you to consider carefully: April 1st is reported to be International Rainbow Bridge day and I thought it would be a very loving and caring for Dogster to honor this day by offering either new angel items that we could buy and send to our departed pals (I for one would love to have a pair of forever wings), or even having a free rosette in the gift shop that we could send to our loved and not forgotten pals.

As you know, loosing a loved one is very sad, traumatic and often brings on some form of depression for those who are left behind. Sometimes humans feel that they no longer belong on Dogster/Catster because most of the diary postings are done by those that are still living although there are several Angels who continue to post which I find to be refreshing. Maybe having a day set aside for Angel pals would entice those who have left to come back and play again. It’s worth a try, don’t you think?

Now for those pals of ours that agree with having a special Rainbow Bridge day and some new rosettes dedicated for this, please feel free to send Dogster/Catster a nice message requesting such.

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose – campaigning for a Rainbow Bridge day here on Dogster/Catster.


09/19/13 Pirate day

September 19th 2013 9:17 pm
[ View A Comments (5) ]

Hi pals,

Today Dogster generously gave us free Jolly Roger flags for us to send to our pals. Personally, I don’t get the whole fascination with pirates as they were a bunch of crooks that stole and murdered people, but since the Dogster Jolly Roger Pirate day is all in fun I did send out some flags to my pals. However, I would prefer getting rid of the Jolly Roger give away and doing a Rainbow Bridge day with free Guardian Angel rosettes.

Sometimes our Angel pals are left out of the fun and it would be nice if Dogster would allow us to show our continue love towards those who have crossed the Rainbow Bridge with a day of remembrance.

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose

PS - Thank you pals for all of the Jolly Roger flags on our pages.

OMD - Dogster has once again chosen to feature my diary today - Thank you Dogster as you know how much I love to be in the spotlight - BOL, BOL The only problem is I am running out of acceptance speeches so I'll just make this really short.

I'd like to thank the following for helping me to be the Princess that I am:

Momma - I have you wrapped around all four of my little paws and have allowed you to cater to my every whim. You should run right out and buy me some new cookies because I deserve them.

Daddy - I have you to thank for helping momma to pick me out. I know I was, am still am such a pretty girl, so who am I fooling, neither one of you could resist me on that faithful day when our paths crossed.

Puffy - What can I say...Oh, I know, you are a very nice brother and I really am glad you live with us because that means I get more cookies when I take yours from you. Now stop sniffing my butt and give me some of those bones you have...

Hobo - The love of my life. I'm glad you understand what's mine is mine and what's yours is mine also. We get along so well.

Dogster - Who would have thought a social network for dogs and cats would be so popular? I love all my pals and enjoy reading about their lives. Thank you for today's honor and I hope to live up to your expectations.

My pals - I love you all but once again request that you NOT spend your zealies on me. Just drop me a few free bones (hey, it worked for Puffy).

To Redford and pack - You sure are being kept busy making all of those picture frames for Puffy and me - BOL, BOL. I sure hope you are having fun making them because I sure do like getting them however, I confess, I absolutely LOVE the picture frame you did where I had the cookie in my mouth and the hoodie pulled down over my eyes - it captured the true me - BOL, BOL.

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose
