06/05/13 Bath day

June 5th 2013 8:06 pm
[ View A Comments (4) ]

Hi pals,

This morning did not start out well. Daddy came and got Puffy and me from momma’s bed and was going to let us snuggle with him for a while as momma continued to snore away. We were real excited until he decided that we were too dirty and needed a bath.

Yup, he hauled us off to the laundry room and gave us both a bath. Then since we were soaking wet, he returned us to momma’s bedroom – BOL, BOL. Needless to say, we managed to wake momma up quickly. She asked daddy why he didn’t use the blow dryer to dry us off and he said it was nice and warm so we would dry off fast. Let me tell you it was 7 AM and yes the sun was out but it was still cool and I was shivering. Momma then asked daddy if he squirted the liquid stuff in our ears that is supposed to dry any water out of them after bathing, and he said no, so off to the laundry room we were hauled once again for the dreaded ear squirt stuff and then we were both dried with the blow dryer.

After all this, momma let us in the sewing room and I got to bark and play with my bunny sister Arleenton. I had a great time with her and she even seemed to enjoy it too. She would flop down on the pillow and lay on her side so I don’t think she mined my company at all. She even ate some spinach as I barked at her – BOL. I’m hoping Puffy and I get to play with her more.

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose

 

05/18/13 Another day being left at home

Hi pals,

First I would like to thank Dogster for selecting my diary as one of the featured diaries of the day. I never get tired of this honor.

I would also like to send lots of love to my pal Nina for making me the pretty picture frame for me to always remind me of todays honor. Ms. Nina you make such pretty picture frames and I cherish each and every one. Thank you for always taking the time to do these for your pals. I'm sure everyone enjoys them as much as I do.

It wouldn't be right for me to be talking about Dogster honors without mentioning my pal Demon Flash Bandit also had his diary featured today. Way to go big guy, you know how to keep everyone entertained with what you write.

Now on to being left at home, again. Momma asked daddy if they could go to the Zuni reservation and do some grocery shopping at the little market that is there. Arleenton, our bunny sister was out of lettuce and although the Zuni market is quite tiny, they are the only place that carries fresh fruits and veggies if one doesn't want to make a 45 mile trip into Gallup. Zuni is about 22 miles from where we live so it's not exectly like going to the cornor grocery store like we used to do in California.

Anyhow, after the humans had breakfast, momma put up the baby gate across our bedroom door and then got her purse and went out the French doors leaving Puffy and me behind. How could they do that when she knew we wanted to go too? I think this type of behavior shouldn't be allowed.

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose

 

05/16/13 Stroller ride

Hi pals,

Guess what Puffy and I got to do today….

We went for a stroller ride in our Dogmobile.

The ride was cut short because it’s hard to push the Dogmobile on gravel roads and truth be know, it wasn’t all that comfortable getting bounced all about either.

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose

 

05/15/13 Haircut and bath

May 15th 2013 7:52 pm
[ View A Comments (8) ]

Hi pals,

This morning momma said she had a surprise for me so I got all excited and happy; little did I know that “Surprise” was nothing more than a haircut and bath. That’s right pals; momma once again took the clippers to my beautiful hair and attempted to give me a haircut like our groomer used to do. Momma said she would never cut my beautiful hair again after the last terrible hair cut she gave me but there isn’t a groomer close to where we now live so momma gave it another try. Let’s just say she still should NOT apply for a position as a dog groomer, if you get my drift.

After my haircut I was forced to endure soap in my eyes and even worse that nasty stuff she squirts in my ears afterwards that is supposed to dry up any water that gets in them.

I was lucky though because daddy was busy installing the tile on the shower so he didn’t get a chance to trim my nails – BOL.

Now I need to go outside and find something to roll around in.

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose

 

05/12/13 Mother's day rosette

The #1 mother’s day cup that Dogster is allowing us to send to our pals for free today was a nice jester; however, I don’t understand why they didn’t take the time to change the Star of David to read #1 mother. I for one want to thank my pals who sent me one of the cups, but I could not bring myself to send any out to my pals because I did not know who I might upset. Religious symbols have different meanings and some pals may not be receptive to having a Star of David on their page. I think if Dogster did not have the time to change the Star of David on the rosette then they should have offered the #1 Mom or maybe one of the flowers as a free rosette for today.

Hugs and kisses and Happy Mother’s day to all.

05/11/13 Hello...

Hi pals,

Not too much to report going on here. Yesterday the humans went to Gallup to do some shopping – momma went to Wal-Mart for groceries while daddy was across the street at Home Depot. They were gone for hours and Puffy and I napped the day away on the wonderful King sized bed – BOL, BOL. Of course we really wanted to go with the humans for a nice truck ride but after hearing about what happened to daddy’s truck it’s a good thing we didn’t go. While daddy was driving back to our house on the 8 mile dirt road that leads home, there was a loud “POP” noise but according to daddy they didn’t know what caused it. When they got to the gate to our property momma got out of the truck to open the gate and when she got back inside and closed the truck door, the back window shattered. Yup, glass was everywhere and now they have to have that window replaced. It was just a couple of months ago that the humans had to replace the front truck windshield because a rock hit it and caused it to crack horizontally from the passenger side all the way to the driver’s side. To make matters worse, it started to rain and because there are still boxes and furniture in the garage/warehouse daddy couldn’t park the truck inside and it had to be left in the rain.

Daddy did put a plastic covering over the window but it blew off while he was taking a nap so momma had to go outside in the pouring rain and re-cover it plus weigh it down with some wood so that it wouldn’t fly off again. Sometimes I guess it’s best to stay at home.

I experienced my first thunderstorm with lighting and DID NOT LIKE IT AT ALL!!!! Momma did put my Thundercoat on me and I did calm down a bit, but all this thunder and lightning frightens me. Momma says it frightens her also because the lighting can cause fires to erupt.

Well I need to go find a cookie…

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose

 

05/06/13 No more biting and our garden

May 6th 2013 8:34 pm

Hi pals,

Since big mouth Puffy informed EVERYONE that I bit momma on the finger and caused it to bleed, I thought I better let you know that there have been no further biting incidents. Momma is watching me like a hawk and is going to take me to the vet this week when the humans go into town. She says I am drinking water like crazy but my output isn’t matching what I am in taking.

In other news, daddy got out the rototiller and spent a good part of the day getting the plot of dirt ready for planting. Momma then took the plants she started in the kitchen outside and planted them. They spent hours outside and only let Puffy and I out for a little while because Puffy kept on getting in the way of the rototiller. Anyhow, after the garden was planted momma came inside to see what the weather forecast was for the coming week and discovered there is a chance of SNOW all week long. So much for planting the garden – there was no snow today but it did rain.

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose

 

05/02/13 There is a fire burning

May 2nd 2013 3:31 pm
[ View A Comments (9) ]

Hi pals,

We have been having some nice sunny days with the temperature getting up to 79 degrees but get this, overnight we again had freezing conditions and the water in daddy’s tile saw was frozen solid this morning. Momma is concerned that the small plants she put outside this last week are probably dead but she hasn’t gone outside to check.

Now if that isn’t bad enough, there is a fire burning in the Sandia Mountains that is out of control. Thus far, we haven’t seen any smoke from the fire but the winds are once again picking up so we are paying close attention in case we have to evacuate. This is one of the major drawbacks with living in the mountains surrounded by beautiful trees. The dry conditions have caused trees to die thus adding fuel to any fires that might spring up. Also there are lots of abandoned properties with and without homes on them so they don’t have humans cleaning up the dead debris. We went riding around our neighborhood yesterday and saw a 1700 square foot house on 6.5 acres of land listed for sale at 29 thousand dollars (2 bedrooms/2 baths). It was listed as “U-Finish” – “As Is”. Also, our closest next door neighbor has listed her home for sale. Apparently people have decided they don’t want to live here anymore. Daddy thinks the economy is forcing them to sale as some have probably lost their city jobs and can no longer afford to have vacation property. There is so much property for sale here that one can get a really good buy.

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose

 

04/28/13 The house is coming along

April 28th 2013 8:57 am
[ View A Comments (8) ]

Hi pals,

All the snow has melted and I hope that is the last of it for this season. All in all, Puffy and I did pretty well with our first winter here in New Mexico. Puffy wanted me to ask if anyone would be interested in one used laundry sink as he is tired of getting baths and feet washes – BOL. He said he would even pay for all shipping charges using momma’s credit card.

The house is coming along. Daddy’s bedroom is now completed so the humans moved the bed out of the living room and into daddy’s room. Now we get to bark and bark at daddy when he gets up and down during the night but that’s okay because momma doesn’t sleep with her bionic ears on so it doesn’t bother her, but daddy sure gets upset with it – BOL.

Daddy has started working on the guest bathroom wall tile. I must say it is looking very nice. The humans need to get both bathroom wall tiles done so the Plummer can come back and finish connecting the showers in both bathrooms and the sink in the guest bathroom.

Puffy and I saw a herd of deer sitting in the shade of various trees yesterday. As we stared at them from the truck, they all just stared right back at us and didn’t bother to even get up. It was pretty awesome. We haven’t seen any elk lately but something has been lurking about in the dark around our property. The other night when Puffy and I went outside to do our business we were barking and barking, along with the dogs across the street at something. Momma told us to hurry up and get ourselves back inside where we would be safe.

Momma planted some morning glories out in the yard and then took some of Arleenton’s used cage cedar to spread around them with hopes that the local yard rabbits would leave the plants alone. Daddy said momma should have used the litter from Simba’s kitty box instead so today we are going to do just that. Momma also planted a tiny weeping cherry tree over by where Bay-Ling is buried. It’s so tiny right now that the rabbits could easily damage or eat it and the humans aren’t sure how to go about protecting it; does anyone have any suggestions?

So the humans continue to slowly work on the house and hopefully someday it will all be finished and signed off by the code enforcers. Momma thinks they are going to be really upset when they come back to do the final inspections and see that the house is already being lived in but that is the risk they will have to take because it got COLD living in the garage/workshop so they had no choice but to move into the house after daddy installed the attic furnace. Hopefully we will have an understand inspector and they will sign off on the house…keep your paws crossed – okay?

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose

 

04/17/13 The sky is falling

Hi pals,

We have been having some really nice sunny days here in New Mexico although the wind has been blowing strongly and there were some adverse weather conditions bulletins advising winds of over 60 miles per hour might hit various counties (it was windy here but not THAT windy).

Anyhoodle, daddy told momma that snow was forecasted and she laughed saying it couldn't possibly be true as there wasn't a cloud in sight and the temperature was in the high 60's. So guess what happened this morning...Yup, it has been snowing on and off all morning long. It's a fine day to lay in bed and nap, don't you agree?

The house building is coming along. The humans were planning on finishing up daddy’s bedroom today but since the weather conditions won’t allow for doing door painting outside they are taking a break – BOL. Daddy is still sleeping in the living room on the Queen sized bed but Puffy, Simba, momma and I are REALLY enjoying the Cal. King bed in “our” new bedroom. Momma says she will take pictures once everything is put away and post them on Dogster so you can see how nice it is.

I need to thank my wonderful pal Mazy for suggesting that momma use wee-wee pads so that if weather conditions were bad Puffy and I wouldn’t have to go outside to do our business. I am no longer waking momma up in the middle of the night to go outside, instead I use the wee-wee pad and it has been working out great. I still go outside most of the other times but having an indoor potty is wonderful. Momma even bought some washable wee-wee pads so that she wouldn’t have to keep on buy disposable ones. She found a web site that sells nothing but wee-wee pads and they cost much less than what cost at animal supply stores.

Oh, got to go and see what is happening in the kitchen…I think I heard someone opening the cookie jar…

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose
