Looks like I'm a slacker when it comes to updating my page. It has been a year since my last entry and a lot has happen. Me and my mom and my cat Esther moved to a new place. This time we have a roommate and he's the daddy of a pit/lab and a black cat. The pit named Onyx is HUGE! I can take him though. He's pretty harmless. He is always smelling my butt though and that gets really annoying. The black cats name is Sativa. She's real skittish and walks funny. She and Esther do NOT get along. Esther kept getting scratches on her face, but I think she's learned her lesson because she hasn't had them in a long time. Or maybe she's just a better fighter now. Esther is bad though. She will hide on the shelving unit by the stairs and when Onyx or Sative goes up them she will ambush them. She uses to do that all the time to me at our old place, but Mom has to carry me up and down these stairs because they are way too steep for me and have no carpeting.
Earlier in the year I had a small incident. I got a bad cough after almost choking on a doggie treat. I was eating it all up but then I heard a big noise and when I went to bark it went down the wrong pipe. It came loose, but I kept fainting. Mom took me to the dreaded vets office and they did some tests. They said they thought I was in heart failure and I had to go to the vet hospital for further tests. I felt fine by then, but mom took me anyway. I was so scared because that's where they took me when they next door pit bull bully tried to eat me. The doctors at the hospital said they didn't think anything was wrong. They said they at 10 years old they were surprised I was so healthy! Mom was pissed because she felt the original vet was full of it. He kept suggesting that she bring him to a specific cardiologist and thinks maybe he got kickbacks. She suggests never to take your dog to Girard Vets in Philadelphia. Turns out he took tests that he shouldn't have even taken. He charged her lots of money. Never again.
Anyway, I went to the SPCA for my annual check up today. I'm in great health and they gave me those annoying shots I have to get every year. The stuck their finger up my bum because I had something wrong with my anal glands which were really uncomfortable but I feel so much better and I'm not trying to chew on my butt anymore. I just have to keep up with my heartworm meds and flea and tick meds and I should be fine. Kinda scared about the flu that's going around, but the doc told my mom that they aren't too worried if you are not bringing them to a kennel or something. It has been a problem in Chicago but not so much here.
Anyway, I'm really looking forward to the summer. Mom is working from home so I get to be with her all day. She likes to go to cafes to write so now I can go with her since she can work outside. I'm getting old, but I still act like a puppy. The winter was harsh and I didn't get to go out much and I gained a pound and a half! Mom's gonna have me out running a lot more now that the weather is better. I hope I get to make lots of new friends then! I can't guarantee I'll be writing on here faithfully, but I will try to update more often. Happy spring to all!

So it has been a few years since I last posted on here. A lot has happened but mostly things are status quo. We are getting ready to move to a new place. Which always means adjustments and new routines but we can't stay here cuz it's too expensive. My Mom has a boyfriend now and he's pretty cool. He plays with me, takes me for walks, and brings me treats. I let him know that I'm the man of the house though. We go to his house every once in awhile but I'm not to crazy about that. Esther doesn't like it when we leave her alone either. She licks the hair off her back, so we've been staying here mostly. I have cabin fever because of all the snow. We don't get to the park too much right now. It's really icy over there and i can't walk very well. It's also really really cold because of the river. I can't wait til spring. I really need a haircut but I hate them. I'll try and write more from now on.

I was away for the Easter holiday. I got to go to the beach! I LOVE it there! I ran and ran on the beach. There were so many wild smells on the beach. I just love it! Its hard to run in the sand but i still love it. I got to see my friend Poco. We pass his house every day when we go for a walk around the block. My Nana was there she kept giving me treats. She tried to walk me but I rather walk with Mom. I was so tired by the time we got home to philly. I just crashed. Now its back to the daily grind. Mom is very busy with art projects this week. Check out her stuff at
