It is hot

August 28th 2009 8:52 pm
[ View A Comments ]

We have been having a heat wave all week long. It has been over 100 degrees daily and even now that it's night time, we are still in the high ninetys. I don't want to do anything except for lay around on the daybed, but then too that's all I do even when it isn't hot - BOL.

Momma was supposed to take me to the vet tomorrow for a shot but cancelled so I wouldn't have to be away from the air conditioned house.

No matter how hot it gets, I do not want to be cooled off with a bath - thank you, no thank you!!!

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose

 

Daddy and the carpet cleaner

August 26th 2009 8:32 pm

Tonight as daddy was shampooing the sewing room carpet and mumbling "thank you Puff" as he cleaned the soiled carpet, he accidentally smeared a piece of watercolor pencil into the debris and then couldn't get it up. Now daddy was not only upset with Puff, but with momma as well because it was her pencil.

I had enough sense to stay out of sight until daddy calmed down. When he did notice me he told me what a good little doggie I am then mumble something I can't repeat here about Puff and momma before he put up the carpet cleaner.

I wanted to suggest that daddy let the carpet cleaner stay out because he is most likely going to have to use it again tomorrow but I didn't think he would appreciate my insight - BOL.


Hugs and kisses,

No Solatube

We were supposed to get a Solatube installed into the sewing room so that we would have lots of pretty natural light in there because not only is the room very tiny, it is also dark because the front porch blocks all light. The first time the solatube installer came out he did not bring the right products with him so no installation. The installation was rescheduled for the following Saturday. Momma got a phone call from the home office Friday saying that they had a cancellation and wanted to know if they could come out on Friday to do the installation. Of course momma jumped at the chance and said okay. Momma called daddy and told him to expect the Solatube guy and went back about doing her job at work.

When she got home, no Solatube! The installer had drilled a hole in the roof and then so nicely announced that he was unable to installed it because of the pitch of the roof. Of course both momma and daddy are not happy that the installer drilled a hole in the roof, which he says he "patched".

All I can say about this is that both Puff and I warned our humans about this guy by barking and barking but all we got was "QUITE!" How much more warning do the humans need? We told them not to let this guy in but they chose not to listen.

We are all disapointed that we did not get pretty sunlight to brighten up the sewing room. Momma is now in the process of changing the wall color from the mauve color that she painted it last year to a very light gray in hopes of reflecting some light into the space. I heard her tell daddy that she might change out the closet doors from wood to mirror for the same reason. She then asked daddy about hiring someone to install a window on the East wall of the sewing room for light. Daddy just shook his head and walked away.

Hugs and Kisses,

I have been thinking about death these last two day. It seems one of our Pup Pals human mom has been called to the Rainbow Bridge. I have never met the woman, but I can tell you I really liked her a lot. At no time did she ever tell me that she was ill or even disclose her name to me. We emailed each other regularly but always signed with our pets names.

I have been emailing and sending her rosettes asking her why she was not on Dogster. It was one of her other Dogster friends that noticed my inquiry and informed me of her passing. I am very grateful to know why my friend disappeared, but at the same time I am feeling like I let her down because I did not know her time here on earth was so limited, as is all of ours, I suppose.

This leads me to wonder how many other pals will disappear without someone informing us that they have been called home. Tonight I am going to put my password for Dogster onto Logan Bens box that is holding his remains with instructions that should something happen to me, to please let the rest of my pals know so that there can be some closure. I am also going to make arrangements for Coco Rose, Puff, Simba Blue, Bay-Ling and Arleenton so in case both my husband and I should see the end together, that the four legged children will be taken care of.

And to my friend who is now with the Angels, I want to thank you for being my friend. I’m really going to miss you Maralee.

We had set our comment section so no comments could be left on our diary page. However, apparently because my typist left a comment on someone else’s diary, the feature was turned back on by Dogster Headquarters. Because we have received a request or two for us to activate the comment section we are going to leave it on for now to see how it works. So, let the comments begin....

As promised, here are some more interesting facts about some of my pup pals. Remember, if I did not mention you the last time or this time, I will at a later date.

Baxter http://www.dogster.com/dogs/190498 is a wonderful French bulldog. We owe lots of thanks to Baxter’s human daddy because he is the one who turned us onto Dogster. We love you Baxter.

Kaya http://www.dogster.com/dogs/1002010 was a puppy mill rescue. She has such a happy home now so hopefully she can forget her terrible beginnings.

If you ever wondered what a beagle/dachshund would look like, check out our pal Buddy http://www.dogster.com/dogs/955688 because he is so very handsome.

Sammy the Shih Tzu http://www.dogster.com/dogs/188231 has no time for diary entries. He sure is a cute little tyke and we wish we knew more about him.

Sam http://www.dogster.com/dogs/188231 is an American Pit Bull Terrier/Labrador Retriever. Every time we read his June 25th, 2009 entry titled “Ingenious” we burst out laughing. Thank you for being our friend Sammy.

Abigail http://www.dogster.com/dogs/167213 is the prettiest little gal who has a past. Yes, at one time this little princess was arrested and put in jail. She has a record but with lots of love and rehabilitation she is not walking on the wrong side of the tracks any more.

Pebbles http://www.dogster.com/dogs/173258 has many, many pup pals. The last time I looked she has 25,672!!!! Wow – Impressive! I wonder if she gives them all Christmas Rosettes. Probably not.

My pup pal Sunny http://www.dogster.com/dogs/794702 is entered into the cutest dog contest. If she wins, she has pledged that any and all winnings will go to her local humane society. Won’t you please visit the site and give her a vote. http://www.cutestdogcompetition.com/vote.cfm?h=05AFB50C61D9D C9D7ADE9E05D56FD864 Good Luck Sunny I hope you win.

Beautiful Gracie http://www.dogster.com/dogs/317638 is a real momma’s girl. She has not been on Dogster since the end of last year, but I am hoping she and her sisters will come back soon.

My pal Dexter Nova Bright Star http://www.dogster.com/dogs/16108 is a wonderful Gordon Setter. He was named after Dexter Gordon the jazz saxophonist. I wonder if he can play the sax.

Wolfgang RL1 CGC http://www.dogster.com/dogs/767265 is a very fashionable German Shepherd/Collie. He is another re-homed lad that was given a second chance.

My girlfriend Halo Kitty http://www.dogster.com/dogs/548373 loves cats and has one of her own Apollo. She is afraid of thunderstorms so her humans got her a thunderstorm shirt to help comfort her when needed. What loving humans she has.

And finally, I have to mention Wheelie Baby Bear http://www.dogster.com/dogs/136060 he is the cutest Yorkshire Terrier I have ever seen. At one time life was quite easy for Baby Bear, until he jumped off his human mommas lap and broke his neck. The vet suggested that it might be best to put Baby Bear down, because his hind legs were now paralyzed. Baby Bears momma refused to do this and instead found other forms of treatment. With lots of hard work and determination on both of their parts, Baby Bear is now walking. We love you Baby Bear.

That’s it for today…Keep watching for your name to appear.

Hugs and Kisses,

Coco Rose

 

Some of my Pup Pals

August 15th 2009 7:01 am
[ View A Comments ]

I've been thinking a lot about my pup pals. I really enjoy it when I am reading one of my pal’s diaries and my name is mentioned because it makes me feel special, so I am going to start this new feature in my diary. From time to time I am going to mention one or more of my pup pals. My goal is to mention every one of you at some point because to me, each one of you is special. If you are not mentioned this time, I promise you I will mention you sometime later.

1) My most pampered Pup Pal pooch is without a doubt Tinker Bell Forever http://www.dogster.com/dogs/548196. Go to her photo album, the second page, she had a dinner table booster seat!!! OMD – I have to eat from the floor. My daddy would never let me have a dinner table booster seat. I think I’m going to go pout.

2) My pal Demon Flash Bandit http://www.dogster.com/dogs/292006 has the most hypnotizing blue eyes. It’s no wonder his humans fell in love with him.

3) If it is dreamy eyes you want, then check out my pal Fluffy Lee http://www.dogster.com/dogs/175340 . I could easily fall under his spell just glazing into his dark peepers.

4) My pal Ella http://www.dogster.com/dogs/710533 has the most unique facial expressions. Her personality really shines through in all her pictures and they make us laugh with her.

5) Some of our pals are working dogs. http://www.dogster.com/dogs/652151 Bukka and Josh are big, beautiful Great Pyrenees who are responsible for looking after and guarding the Alpacas. Personally I think they should be asking for a raise because the flock keeps on growing. More Alpacas should mean more Bully sticks.

6) I’ve often wondered what it would be like to have a body with long beautiful legs like my buddy Tiberius http://www.dogster.com/dogs/800845 has. It must be nice to be able to see yummy treats that are sitting on the coffee table. I wonder if he ever helps himself to anything, I know that I would.

7) I think my BFF Pookie http://www.dogster.com/dogs/98789 has the prettiest hair. Her momma keeps her really pretty. I wish I could look as pretty as she does.

8) I really wish I could play with my pal Pepper http://www.dogster.com/dogs/953376 as she seems like she would be a lot of fun to be around. She could come over to my house and pee on the floor, Puff would get in trouble for it – BOL

9) My pals Sully and Socks http://www.dogster.com/dogs/752866 make a wonderful team. My momma decided to seriously pursue finding me a brother or sister after seeing how Sully accepted Socks into his family.

10) Dixie Black Pearl http://www.dogster.com/dogs/865951 is one of the sweetest black dogs there are and is a good example as to why people should not pass up black dogs being offered for adoption (of course I am biased on the whole black dog thing).

11) We love our Pup Pal Little CoCo Puff http://www.dogster.com/dogs/500107 she is a real beauty. I love the picture of her with her IPOD on because she looks like she is really getting into the music, I wonder what she was listening to.

12) Some of our Pup Pals are facing some real challenges right now. Our new pal Dozer http://www.dogster.com/dogs/1017350 is a very young Saint Bernard who has a defective back leg which is going to be amputated next week. He could use some encouragement and more pup pals. Would you all please go visit his site and offer some encouragement to him and his family?

Well this is the first group of pals to be mentioned. My typist is not sure how the links are going to turn out because she is typing this on Microsoft Word and then will be transferring it onto Dogster (she needs the spell check feature on Microsoft). Okay, we just discovered the referenced Pup Pal sites are not coming out to be instant click ons - what did my typist do wrong? Someone please email me so the next time this can be corrected.

We hope this entry made some of our pals feel special. Keep watching for us to continue on with more pals. If you were not mentioned this time we will mention you at a later time.

Hugs and Kisses,

Coco Rose

 

Michael Vick

It wasn't surprising to me that someone signed Michael Vick to play football after all I suspect they got him at a huge discount. I for one would love to see him play again but only under the following conditions:

He is prohibited from wearing any protective gear.

He must be lean so his food rations should be severely limited.

Should he get injured, no medical attention should be given.

His pay and bonuses are based upon his successful plays. If he does not score in every play, he is to be punished in the exact same manner that the dogs he kept were. I personally vote for a car battery connected to selected areas on his body.

Since it is very unlikely that the above will occur, I for one will not be watching any football games that the Eagles play in even if they should happen to make it to the Super Bowl. Yes, the man paid for his crimes but the dead dogs paid a much bigger price than he will ever have to pay.

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose

 

Self cleaning oven

August 11th 2009 7:37 pm
[ View A Comments ]

Momma thought the oven was broken because when she tried to use the self cleaning feature Sunday night to clean out all of the grease that was deposited inside from the BBQ grills, the self cleaning feature wouldn't turn on. Momma was in a panic (it's a new oven) so it was a good thing daddy happened to come into the kitchen because he told momma that some of the ovens have a 24 hour lock-out that prevent the user from using the self cleaning feature more than once in that time period.

I'm happy to tell you that the self cleaning feature is still working because momma turned on that feature this morning before she went to work, so the oven is now free of grease and no longers bellows smoke.

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose

 

Do not attempt this

August 9th 2009 6:26 pm

Momma and daddy have been cleaning the house for several days because the youngest human daughter (she is 28) was coming home for a visit and was bring a girl friend with her. So the humans have been mopping, scrubbing and waxing.

Momma decided that she was going to have daddy cook carne asada out on the BBQ grill so this morning she told daddy that he had to clean off the grill. She also told daddy that she had read that a good place to clean the grills is in the kitchen self cleaning oven. Well that seemed like a really good idea because then the oven could do all the work and that would save the humans some elbow grease.

Let me be the one to inform you DO NOT DO THAT - why you ask?

The oven started bellowing smoke from all the grease on the grill. Smoke was pouring out of the oven vents and the door.

Momma - I don't know about this...it sure is getting smoky in here.

Daddy - It's fine, it will stop pretty soon.

Momma - Do you think my oven is on fire?

Daddy - No

Momma - Cough, cough...My eyes are burning, cough, cough.

Daddy - Let it run for a few more minutes.

Momma - I can't breath...

Daddy goes outside and momma stays in the kitchen looking through the glass door on the oven to see if it was on fire.

All of a sudden it seemed like every smoke detector in our tiny house was hollering.

Momma - OMG - fan some of the smoke out.

Daddy - Turn the oven off.

Momma - I can't it will ruin the compute in the oven.

Daddy - Turn the oven off!!!

Momma - Okay - momma turns off the oven.

While the alarms continued to sound, daddy got the big fan and was holding it up towards one of smoke detector and momma was fanning two others with a paper to dispell the smoke.

Momma - Please get the alarms to stop alarming.

Daddy - I'm trying.

In the meanwhile, Puff and I were running around asking the humans to please make that terrible noise stop. Simba and Bay-Ling were no place to be found. After what seemed like hours but was only about 10 minutes, if even that, the alarms finally stopped and the smoke from the oven get less and less.

Momma - well maybe it wasn't a good idea to try to clean the greasy grills in the oven.

Daddy - You think?

Momma - It sure did make a mess in my oven. I'm going to have to clean it tonight.

Daddy - You're kidding right? You're not going to run the self cleaning feature tonight are you?

Momma - Well it has to be cleaned before we can use it again because of all the splattered grease in there.

Daddy - groans and walks away.

Don't worry pup pals, the fire department is only three blocks away and I have their phone number handy - BOL
