When mommy got up this morning, she noticed I wouldn't sit or lay down. Whenever I tried, I'd just jump right back up. I also wouldn't climb the stairs or jump up on the bed. Mommy knew something must be wrong. All I would do is pace and pant and my eye was REALLY red! So......I got to go for a car ride (mommy helped me get into the car) & we went to that place that smells kinda funny & they make me get on the scale (I weighed 60 lbs). I was okay until they took me into the little room & the girl whipped out the stick that they put you-know-where! Well, Dr. Jen came in & started pulling on my legs & pressing on my back. Then she put a light up to my eye & I started bobbing my head all over the place. Come to find out, I played WAAAAY too hard in the yard on Sunday (I was supposed to be helping mommy) and pulled a muscle in my back. I figured it happened when I was watching the Olympics! Dr. Jen said my eye looked bruised & I must have poked it on a tree limb. After they were finished torturing me, I got some treats & pills. Mommy gave me one of the pills after we got home. YEEHAW!! Did that ever make me feel funny & drowsy! I was sleeping so hard, the tip of my little tongue was sticking out of my mouth. Now that's some serious "log sawing"!! I sure hope none of my boyfriends are reading this! BOL!! How un-ladylike!!! Guess those pills did the trick cuz I'm back to my silly little self again!!


July 5, 2008 Skooter Meets Emma!

It finally happened! I got to actually meet a Dogster friend for the very first time! Emma came to my house and we got to have a play date (mommy posted pics of us). She brought me a new stuffy that looks like a big piece of bubblegum & some yummy cookies!
Emma is sooo sweet & gentle. I liked her alot! We played in the backyard and in my pool. This was Emma's first time in a pool, so she was a little cautious at first. I think she liked it because she ended up getting in it on her own without coaxing. It sure was a fun day. I hope she had as great a time as I did.
How often do you actually get to meet a friend from Dogster? I feel so lucky. Wish I could meet all of you!


April 27, 2008 - Family Reunion!!

Today was the most fun I have ever had. Me & all of my siblings (except 1) got together at the dog park for our 1 year birthday reunion! I got to run & play with my 5 brothers! We all look alike (except I'm smaller cuz I'm a girl) and when our mommies were comparing notes...come to find out, we all have the same likes/dislikes! When my brothers would wrestle with each other, I'd just stand and look at them. I don't understand that rough & tumble stuff. One of the dads threw a ball & we all chased after it. I ran sooooo fast!! One of the mommies said I looked like a gazelle (whatever THAT is! BOL!). I think I ran faster than the boys because I'm more "streamlined" than they are. They all weigh between 75-80 lbs. & I only weigh 57 lbs. Sounds like mommy needs to give me more treats! Whenever I would have the ball, my brothers didn't try to take it away, they'd just look at me. If one of them had it...the boys would try to take it from him. They were probably polite with me cuz I'm a little girl (boy! did I have them fooled!). We had a whole section to ourselves at the dog park. Some lady came in with a white Standard Poodle & we all stopped what we were doing & stared at him. We have never seen such a hairdo!! I had to walk up to him to get a closer look. Maybe mommy can give me a perm like that dude had!!
I fell asleep on the way home & was very "reserved" the rest of the night. Mommy didn't have to entertain me last night, that's for sure! I was sawing some serious logs....I can't wait 'til I can get together with them again!

WOW! I made it a whole year without getting into too much trouble! I had the best birthday I've ever had! Wait! This was the only birthday I've had so far. I had a wonderful party at Golden Retriever Funhouse. I met lots of new friends there. What a fun bunch.
I got lots of presents from all of my friends. I feel so blessed to have such good friends. Mommy thought she was the only puppy fanatic! Yeah! She's not so nutty after all!!
Thanks everyone for making my first birthday so special!

Well, it's been awhile since I've added anything to my diary. Finally, something exciting has happened in my life! This morning mommy was rushing around & she went down to the basement & brought up this black thing with a zipper & little wheels on it. She took it upstairs & started putting clothes in it. Hmmmmm....wonder what this is all about? After that, she put my bed, some toys and my food in the back of the Tahoe! Does this mean I get to go too??? Daddy drove us over to grandma & grandpas house! YEAH! I get to visit them! A few minutes later, mommy kissed me goodbye (what? Do you mean I'm not going with you?). I stood at the front door & gave mommy my very saddest look, but she still didn't let me go with them. Now I'm really confused. This was my very first sleepover! I've never spent a night away from mommy & daddy. Grandma told me that mommy & daddy would be back tomorrow and that they were going to celebrate their anniversary. How come I'm not invited too?? I'll be a good girl....
A little while later, grandpa fed me dinner & I went looking for the kitty (she doesn't like me, I found out!). WOW! Can she ever hiss & swat her paws at me! Grandpa took me outside to play in the snow. He noticed I kept picking up things & eating them. Come to find out, I was finding all of the peanuts that he puts out for the squirrels & I was eating them! BOL! He thought that was pretty funny!
Uh, oh! It's bedtime now & I'm getting worried! Grandpa showed me where my bed was (I get to sleep in the guestroom cuz Kitty sleeps with them). Everything was ok until around midnight. I woke up & started crying for my mommy. Grandpa got up & took me outside (just in case I had to potty). When he put me back in my bed, he gave me his shirt to sleep with. They didn't hear a peep out of me the rest of the night. What a good grandpa I have!
The next day when mommy & daddy came to get me, I almost turned inside out! Grandma said I was a real joy to have around & she couldn't believe what good manners I have (at this point, mommy's heart swelled with pride). Guess I get to stay with them again someday!

Here are my five wishes:

1. I wish I could meet all of my special furiends that are on Dogster. If only they could all come to Colorado and play in the snow with me!
2. I wish I could go to daycare everyday.
3. I wish all the puppies on Dogster that are sick can be well again.
4. I wish mommy would take me to Petsmart more often than once a week.
5. I wish all of my food tasted as good as peanut butter does!

OMD! I had the most terrifying experience in my life! Mommy took me to Petsmart to have my picture taken with Santa. As soon as I saw him, I freaked out and started running. I ran under a sign & knocked it down. BOL!!Once mommy got me under control (half way through the store), Santa tried to bribe me with treats & toys. I wasn't gonna fall for that trick! No sir!! I planted my paws firmly on the ground & thought "NO WAY"! Then mommy snuck me around behind Santa & tricked me into sitting with him. I was shaking & everything. I didn't take my usual "photogenic" picture. I look real wild eyed and you can tell I'm pulling away from him. Anyway, I overheard mommy tell daddy that she's gonna try again next week. I did end up getting some new toys & the "Air Buddies" DVD out of it though!! Mommy scanned & posted my picture anyway.

This morning I was playing in mommy's big jacuzzi tub, so she decided to fill it up all the way. It was so much fun pretending I was bobbing for apples with my ball. All of a sudden mommy turned the jets on so she could see my reaction. YOW!! My eyes got as big as saucers & I went flying out of there like crazy! I ran back in and jumped into the tub & started biting the jets. My mommy knows how to have a good time! I was scared for a second, but I could tell by the way mommy was laughing, it must be something fun to do. A couple of times during the day, I would go upstairs to see if it would happen again. Now mommy knows how to entertain me when the weather is bad outside!


I Barked! November 14, 2007

The other night when I was downstairs hanging around with daddy, I got so excited playing with my new Teaser Ball, I let out a big, deep bark. Mommy came running downstairs and said "was that you, Skooter?". You see, I'm 7 months old now and believe it or not, I've NEVER barked! Mommy & daddy were excited that they got to hear my first "words" together. For a while, they thought I might not have a voicebox or something. I guess the look on my face was priceless. I jumped back & thought "what the heck was that!" Hey! I just didn't have anything important to say until then! BOL!


I've Been Tagged! November 16, 2007

Here are the rules: Because it’s Thanksgiving time, there is a change to the rules. Each player needs to tell seven special things they are thankful for. Tagged dogs must post the rules in their diary and their 7 things. Then choose 7 pups to tag and list their names. Let them know by pawmail or rosette that they have been tagged and to read your diary for the instructions on how to play.

1. I am thankful for the mommy & daddy that chose me.
2. I am thankful for the care and love I receive from them no matter what mischief I get into.
3. I am thankful for all the new buddies I have met on Dogster.
4. I am thankful that my mommy found a wonderful doggie daycare that I get to go to sometimes.
5. I am thankful for all my special friends that watch me on the "webcam" when I'm at daycare.
6. I'm thankful for the food mommy feeds me everyday (and the morsels that drop on the floor!) & the toys she gives me.
7. I am thankful for my good health and Dr. Jennifer that takes care of me.
