Lilly

Yesterday momma took Puff and I out for two walks. The first one was early in the morning before the sun starting to blaze down and the second was after the sun had set.

We had a real nice walk until Lilly one of the dogs that live on the end of the block came running up to us. No, Lilly was not mean or nasty, she was actually quite friendly, but her hair was so matted that she must have been real unconfortable.

Lilly is a long hair dog but apparently her owner has fallen on hard times and has not found the funds to take care of Lilly's grooming needs. Momma didnt even reconize the dog that was out running loose was Lilly. When the dog approached, momma reached down and patted it and of course Puff and I did the required butt sniffs. Lilly was very friendly, but momma immediately saw and felt the matts. I have been know to get a mat or two when momma tries to let my hair grow out because I do not allow my momma to groom me. Lilly's matts were the type you see on Animal Planet where the humane Society come and take the dog away because of neglect.

It will cost about 40 - 50 dollars to take Lilly to the local groomer and they will have no option but to shave her down completely. Momma does not want to embarras lilly's owner, but she was thinking that maybe she can offer our clippers to the owner to use to cut the matts off of Lilly. If she calls the humane society and the dog is taken away, it will end up in a high kill shelter and the chances of it getting a second home is not favorable, but it might happen.

Daddy says momma should mind her own business because we don't want problems with the neighbors. Momma is still thinking of what she can do to help that poor dog.

What do I have to do?

When momma says the magic words: "Ni-night Coco" I run to my crate and wait for momma to zip the flap closed. Momma will then turn off the light in the sewing room and settle down on the daybed to watch TV until she falls asleep.

The night before last, I refused to settle down. I barked and barked until momma finally got up and let me out. I ran to the kitchen and got a drink of water then momma let me outside so I could go use the bathroom. When I came back in momma again said "Ni-night Coco" and I ran into my crate.

Off went the light and...

Bark, Bark, Bark, Bark - you get the picture.

Momma being the smart person she is, pretended she couldn't hear me (but she did) until daddy came and let me out - BOL. We went through the whole routine again.

Drink of water and outside for a bit, then "Ni-night Coco" and off to my crate I ran, again. Daddy zipped the flap close and off he went to the master bedroom with Puff.

I waited for a respectable 10 minutes, enough time for him to get nice and comfy, and then...

Bark, bark, bark, bark I started again.

Daddy yelled at me to be quite and I did for several minutes until I started barking again.

Finally daddy comes back into the sewing room and gets me out of the crate and low and behold, he takes me to the master bedroom and I got to sleep on the big bed with Puff and daddy all night long.

Last night momma says "Ni-Night Coco" and of course I ran into my crate and momma zipped the flap closed. This time, I did not bark, instead I unzipped the flap, a little trick I learned from Puff, and went running under the daybed. Momma had seen me escape and was watching to see what I was going to do. I had to be careful because Simba Blue likes to sleep under the day bed, but finally I found what I wanted - my pig ear! Yes, all the fussing was because the humans put me to bed without my pig ear. I don't actually eat or chew on it during the night; I just like to know it is in a safe place so I can enjoy it the next day.

Once I had my pig ear, I went back into my crate, momma zipped the flap, and I went to sleep.

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose

 

Daddy did what?

Daddy works out of the house so he is almost always home. There are advantages to this because he will turn on the air conditioner so the house stays cool when the hot sun blazes down. Today, daddy decided to set off bug bombs because we have been finding lots of spiders and ants in the house, so Puff and I got evicted - we had to spend more than four hours outside in the hot sun.

Daddy set off a total of six insect bombs in our tiny house. He put the kitties in the master bedroom and then put towels around the bottom of the door so the poison would not steep under and let the kitties stay in there while he bombed every room except for the master bedroom. Four hours later, he opened the windows to air the house out and let the kitties back into the main house, while he set off the last bug bomb in the master bedroom.

There really wasn't a reason why we could not stay in the house in the master bedroom with the kitties. It would have been more comfortable for us instead of being outside in the hot sun. Momma had asked daddy to wait until this weekend to do this so she could take us to the park during the time the bombs were going. Did Daddy listen? NO!

Hugs and Kisses,

Coco Rose

 

Another Earthquake

Being a native California, I can tell you I have experienced three earthquakes in my short little life. Tonight there was another one where the earth and house moved for a few seconds. Again, we were very lucky as it was a "little "quake instead of the quake of all quakes that is said to be on the horizon. Someday we might not be so lucky.

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose

 

Please turn you behind the other way

I don't know how to say this nicely so I'm just going to come right out with it :

I do NOT like it when you put your behind in my face and let out those really nasty smells. I can see the smile on your face when you do this and I'm telling you right now, STOP IT!!!!

It's nasty. If you have a need to do let out some gas, why not do it in front of Simba Blue as he even try to help you get more gas out with a quick swat with one of his paws - BOL

Happy Mothers day

I whinnied, barked and carried on, but momma couldn't hear me because she did not have on her bionic ears, so I did the next best thing, I opened the flap of my crate, went into the kitchen and got a nice drink of water, then I came back into the sewing room, ran up the steps to the daybed and proceeded to give my sleeping momma lots of kisses to tell her happy mothers day. Of course my face was slopping wet but that added to the nice surprise. Momma woke up, gave me kisses and then we went back to sleep snuggling together.

Happy Mothers day to all

As you some of you know my momma did not like the comment feature on the diary pages so she contacted Dogster and the wonderful people there informed her that there is a very simple solution. If you go to Account Preferences/ Comment preferences/

You will get the below message.

Diary Comment Preferences

- Allow members and non-members to comment on my diary entries.

- I want to approve all diary comments before they go live

If you DO NOT want comments left on your diary pages, then make sure you leave both boxes unchecked.

Simple - problem solved.

Thank you Dogster for thinking of everything.

Puff's new exercises

May 4th 2009 8:18 pm

My brother Puff has gained a "few" pounds so momma has decided he needs to get some exercise. The problem with this is momma tends to be kind of tired when she gets home from work so she has developed a exercise that Puff seems to like to do, that takes little effor on her part. She takes one of his toys and tosses it into the hallway and Puff jumps off the daybed, gets his toy them climbes the stairs, released the toy for mom to toss it again. He did this so much yesterday that he started to pant and mom didn't have to do anything except toss the toy. He finally told mom he was really tired when he turned his back on her and refused to give her the toy to toss again - BOL

Now if only Puff would stop eatting everything he can find to put in his mouth. He eats all of my snacks and cleans the kitty food plates up also. Momma has started feeding the cats on the center island because that's the one place Puff has not figured out how to get up on, yet. You got to hand it to the little fatty, he does enjoy his food.

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose

 

Open letter to Dogster

Dear Dogster,

I have noticed your new feature regarding allowing readers to leave comments on diary entries. Sadly I must admit I have mixed reactions regarding this.

Prior to discovering Dogster, I spent a lot of time on Yahoo Answers usually writing short stories. Yahoo Answers allows fellow visitors to leave comments regarding the postings. I read some very heartwarming entries but at the same time, people would post comments regarding fellow Yahoo Answer entries that were nasty, mean and vicious. To compound this matter, people who were friends on the site, would band together and mass post stuff regarding other members who they thought deserved harassment for whatever reason.

It often felt like I was back in high school among bullies who wanted to control what everyone was doing and if someone had a different opinion regarding something, they were back balled, harassed and make fun of even though I was never the person other members were picking on.

Yahoo Answers tried to control such tactics but without much success. When you have millions of people on the site, I can certainly understand why that was. They finally incorporated a feature where you could block your entries from everyone except for people that you felt you wanted to read your entries.

I read some very disgusting comments that were sure to have upset the original poster and fellow readers. People tend to hide behind the fact that they really do not know who posts these entries and therefore feel freer to leave hurtful comments. I’m concerned that this new feature will turn have the same issues as Yahoo Answers does.

Many of us have made good friends with fellow Dogster people and have gotten to know them quite well, but I have to admit, I do not know most of you personally, although I would like to. We all live in different Cities, Counties, States and even Countries. I read the diary entries and look at the beautiful pictures of your wonderful dogs and enjoy each moment of it. I would like to think that most people will/would take into consideration fellow Dogster feelings prior to leaving a message, but having been on YA, I can tell you that is not the case with everyone. There have been times when I have read a diary and I though “Are they nuts”, but have chosen to ignore the entry instead of leaving a comment simply because my opinion was different then someone else’s. Should I be allowed to tell someone that the picture of their dogs face pasted on a human body looks stupid (sorry, it’s just not my thing)?

I love Dogster and Catster and will continue to visit the sites, however if it turns out to be like Yahoo Answer, where I no longer visit, I will stop posting diary entries.

For those who disagree with this entry, please do not leave me a comment as I have enough stress in my life and can do without more.

Thank you,

Marilynn

 

Mom stayed home from work today

Yesterday, momma came home early from work because she has the flu. Momma never misses work so I figured she was really sick. This morning daddy did not wake momma up so when she did finally get up she called in sick. She spent the whole day sleeping with me and Puff. I like momma being home, but it's no fun when she is sick.
