07/28/13 Send me no pressies

Hi Pals;

Please do not send me any pressies for being one of Dogster’s Diary picks of the day as I have a very special favor to ask of you.

Normally all I care about is getting lots of cookies but when momma checked out the other diary picks of the day, she noticed one of them crossed the Rainbow Bridge yesterday. His name is Milo and his human family could use some comfort. Could you please stop by his page and leave a few words of comfort and maybe a pressie or two?

I love you all!

07/26/13 Monsoonal rains

July 26th 2013 4:44 pm

Hi pals,

Today along with the thumderboomies and lightning flashes we had some monsoonal rains. For those of you who have never experienced monsoonal rains they are really impressive but can do some real damage in a short period of time.

This morning started out with sunny skies without a cloud in sight. However by this afternoon the blue skies had turned black and one could smell rain in the air. Sure enough, about 2 PM we had thunder, lightning, hail and monsoonal rains. Mother Nature must have dropped over five inches of rain in about 30 minutes. Having this much rain fall at once caused flooding in our yard and even in the house.

That’s right pups; we had muddy water coming into the house in daddy’s media room and his bedroom. The humans had to mop up the mud and use a hose to divert the pudding water away from the house. Momma went outside and braved the weather conditions to route the big puddle of water between the two buildings down the driveway.

The “handyman” is supposed to come over tomorrow to finish the concrete work but we are betting that he won’t show up. He’s probably busy scurrying around trying to fix all the leaks in the nasty trailer – BOL, BOL.

I have my Thundershirt on and am actually doing better with the thunder storms but I still don’t like them at all. I don’t understand why Mother Nature needs to throw things around and yell. Maybe she has anger management issues. I’m just saying…

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose

 

07/21/13 So, just when will the thunderboomies stop?

Hi pals,

The mornings start out nice and sunny but come afternoon, clouds move in bringing thunderboomies, lightning and sometimes rain. Can't complain about the rain because we are having a drought, but Mother Nature either teases us with a few sprinkles that evaporate quickly or torrential down pours that flood the area briefly before the thirsty lands consume it all quickly.

When Puffy and I went outside this morning the mud was again dry so we took ourselves for a brief walk to do our business. As I was heading down the driveway, we smelled some fresh poop that didn't belong to either of us. It looked like ours but it was full of berries and we don't have any berries on our property nor do we eat them. Puffy was all set to roll around in it when he was stopped by momma - BOL. I personally don't understand his fascination with doing that, but to each his own. Had he succeeded in getting all stinked up, he would have gotten a bath so how can any of it be fun? Maybe it's just because he gets extra attention and that boy craves attention and apparently will do anything to get it.

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose

Hi pals,

Roses are red;
Violets are blue.

I hate thunder storms;
Because they go boom, Boom, BOOM!

Hugs and kisses - I have to go hide in the closet...

07/17/13 A double Dogster honor

July 17th 2013 2:25 pm
[ View A Comments (5) ]

Hi pals,

Today was a day to mark on your calendars: both Puffy and I are featured diaries of the day. Yup, I had to share this wonderful honor with ole Puffy (Coco stomping her little feet because she is not happy). Now don’t get me wrong because I really do love the little tyke, but how much more am I expected to share with him? I was on Dogster first and I allowed him to move into MY home when he was homeless so why should I be expected to share this wonderful Dogster honor with him?

Momma – Coco, you should be ashamed of yourself.

But momma, he stole my Busy Bone and now he is trying to steal the spotlight away from me.

Momma – Coco Rose, it was Dogster that decided to honor both of you today so Puffy had nothing to do with it. Beside, isn’t it YOU who is in the new pictures chomping down on the Fig Newton cookie that you took from Arleenton?

You mean in the pictures where I am modeling the three pretty dresses I got from Angel Buttercup?

Momma – Yes.

I’m pretty sure I heard Arleenton tell me to take the cookie with me….Now where’s my cookie?

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose

 

07/15/13 I'm shocked

Hi pals,

Yesterday my diary was one of the featured diaries of the day but due to my shock at what Puffy did, I neglected to thank my pals for the wonderful pressies on my page and to Dogster for the honor. As those of you who read both Puffy’s and my diaries know, I am severely food challenged. What’s mine is MINE and if you just happen to have something that I want then it is MINE also.

However, at NO TIME IS ANYONE allowed to take any of my cookies away from me. I am very protective of my cookies and just because sometimes I choose to not eat them immediately doesn’t mean I do not want them. I like to age my cookies age before I actually chomp into them.

So yesterday when the afternoon thunderboomies rolled in and as I was shaking and panting like a crazy dog, Puffy took advantage of my terrified state and stole, yes, STOLE my wonderful Busy Bone.

He licked it all over and if that wasn’t insult enough, he actually ate some of it. I thought I was going to die of shock. The nerve of him stealing from ME: after all the concern and love I have given him with his hurt knee.

After the thunderboomies stopped momma put Puffy and I down onto the floor (we had been on the big bed with momma and my Busy Bone), she gave me back my Busy Bone but I no longer wanted it. I refused to take it in my mouth, heck, it had Puffy germs all over it, but I did sleep on top of it hoping my smell would penetrate it thus making it MY Busy Bone again. Alas, that didn’t happen and as of now, I am not claiming that Busy Bone any longer. I’m holding out in hopes that momma will give me a new one that I can start the aging process all over with.

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose

 

07/11/13 What was that noise?

July 11th 2013 8:57 pm

Hi pals,

As most of my pals know we have been having some really big thunderboomies here in New Mexico. They scare me and I don’t think I will ever get used to them. Anyhow, if that noise wasn’t enough to scare me, around 3AM this morning daddy heard something screaming. He thinks some animal was attacked by another animal. When momma heard about it this morning she walked our property to see if there was a dead body but none was found. There were no crows or vultures flying around so it is hard to say exactly what daddy heard. We know there are bears, foxes, mountain lions, bobcats, deer, elk and other native wild animals that live here so anything is possible.

In other news, the interlocking foam mats that momma ordered for our bedroom arrived today. They are making walking much easier for Puffy so that’s good.

Some of Puffy and my pals have asked why we don’t look into getting Puffy a leg brace. When Puffy first blew out his knee, that was one of the first things she asked the vet about and he said it wouldn’t help him. He claimed that small dogs were very hard to fit a rear leg brace on because of the way their legs are. Momma and daddy both tried to make Puffy a leg brace but as the vet said, the shape of the rear leg on small dogs made fitting one impossible and all that the humans tried would not stay on his leg.

Well Dogster is full of very wonderful pals and Buttercup’s momma sent us a link to a company that makes various types of leg braces for dogs. They did not require a vet to call in the information like all of the other sites that momma had found, but the price was pretty expensive for something that might not work.

The site had a video which instructed how to use the brace and it showed the actual brace which was nothing more than a wrap that was connected to a harness and a leg fitting that went around the other rear leg to add support and keep the leg wrap up on the damaged leg. Momma says she is going to try to duplicate the design and if that doesn’t work, she will admit defeat and send out for the expensive leg brace because she says Puffy is worth it, whatever that means.

Puffy must be filling better because he came out to explore with momma and me today and we had to suffer through her taking a zillion pictures of us. Momma didn’t let him walk around too much before she picked Puffy up and make us go back into the house while she played around with her camera outside.

I hear the thunderboomies again so I’m off to momma’s walk-in closet, again.

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose

 

07/10/13 The final house inspection

July 10th 2013 8:06 pm
[ View A Comments (8) ]

Hi pals,

The code enforcer came this morning and did a very brief walk through and checked to make sure appropriate stickers had been put on the electrical panel box. He then gathered up all of the signed paperwork and issued us a "certificate of occupancy". Yup, we are now legally allowed to live in our new house even though it is not finished.

While the code enforcer was here, Puffy, Simba and I were rudely locked into the sewing room so that there would be no chance of Puffy taking a small taste of the enforcers ankle. The humans may have been proud of themselves for taking away Puffy's fun, but you should have heard us BARKING the whole time the enforcer was here. It was pretty impressive, if I do say so myself.

After the code enforcer left, the humans went to Gallup to do some shopping, so once again we were left at home. They were gone for hours and there was a big thunderstorm coming. Lucky for me, they got home just in time to put my Thundershirt on me before the BOOMS started.

I have to go hide in the closet now...

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose

 

07/09/13 Big day tomorrow

Hi pals,

Tomorrow morning we are having the final inspector come and hopefully sign off on the house and give the "Okay to occupy". However, we have been hearing a lot of things about how the inspector doesn't sign off on houses when the home owners jump the gun and move in before the inspection is signed off. As most of you know we have been living in the house as we work on it so there is no way we can deny that we have been living here.

I would like to say that all work on the house has been completed but that is not true. As of yet, the guest bedroom hasn't even been started on and there is still work that needs to be done in the hallway and laundry room. Also, daddy needs to get the baseboards installed in the living room. Now if that isn't enough, daddy still has to install the counter tops on the kitchen counters and do the baseboards there too.

So there is still lots of work that needs to be done but daddy is trying to get the inspection signed off anyhow. He is under the impression that as long as the smoke and carbon detectors are installed and that the furnace is in properly the inspection should be signed off, but daddy has been know to be wrong before...

Momma is going to put Puffy and me in the garage/workshop before the inspector arrives so there will be no chance of an "accidental" leg nip.

Keep your paws crossed that everything goes well.

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose

 

07/06/13 More new neighbors and thunderboomies

July 6th 2013 6:45 pm

Hi pals,

Since Puffy hurt his hind knee I have been allowed to play with my bunny sister Arleenton. She is lots of fun because she lets me bark in her face and play tag with her. I have to mention, since momma is right here, that we discovered today that Arleenton might be deaf. Momma went to give Arleenton some food and the cage door hit against the wall. Arleenton didn’t acknowledge the noise nor even know that momma was speaking to her. When she finally stopped her grooming and looked up, she appeared to be startled. Daddy said Arleenton acts just like momma does when she doesn’t hear someone approaching her. Arleenton is an old bunny so it is quite possible.

Today when the humans were headed into town to get Arleenton some lettuce, they saw some new neighbors. Momma thinks they were some type of vultures. They had red heads and their bodies’ kind of resembled wild turkeys. This time momma did have her camera with her so she took a couple of pictures. If they come out momma will post one on either Puffy’s or my page. The birds were eating a Prairie Dog that got run over on the main road right by the area where the Badgers were last seen.

We have been having thunderboomies daily, sometimes more than a couple of time per day. I don’t like them at all. When the skies cloud up the humans put my Thundershirt on me but I’m still scared when the booming starts.

Puffy’s left hind knee continues to pop out and give him problems but you should have seen him leap into his bed when he was playing with one of his stuffies. Sometimes I think he forgets that he has a sore knee.

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose

PS – Hershey, Winkie and family – we you do not live anyplace close to where the air plane crashed today.
