Diary of the Day

Yesterday my mom didn't get her email until late, so she didn't know until late last night that I was posted on Diary of the Day! That was so cool. I saw my picture on the Community page & a link to my diary. I know this because mom put her laptop in front of me so I could see it.

I even had a message from a nice guy, Redford, who made a Congratulations picture for me. It was awesome! Thanks Dogster!

 

Hearing isn't so easy anymore

It's been awhile since we have been able to write anything because mom has been busy doing other stuff. So, I will post a quick update. Lucy & Gizmo have already mentioned our new brother, Cloud, so I won't get into that.

Over the past 1 1/2 years, my hearing has been getting worse. I am still able to hear a real loud bang but cannot hear someone clap their hands or talk to me. My mom is awful nice & makes sure she doesn't scare me if I am not looking at her when she starts to touch me. I use the other dogs as my ears. I know when someone is here because of their actions. I also still follow my mom around almost every where she goes in the house. She gets upset with me sometimes because she turns & trips on me because she didn't see me follow her. Sometimes I'm pretty quick. :-)

I'm not allowed outside when mom & dad are feeding the farm animals because I started taking off & leaving the property again. I'm sure part of the reason is because I cannot hear anymore & may not find my way back home. I wouldn't know what to do without my mom, so I don't mind that I have to stay in the pen. I can still see her & I know it doesn't take too long for them to finish their chores. Sometimes I just go back inside & relax until they come back in. Also, Gizmo will stay in & hang out with me sometimes. He's a good brother. He takes such good care of me too. He is always licking my ears for me. I think he is trying to help me hear. I'm the only one he does that to. I let him do it because it feels good.

I will check back in as soon as I get a chance. Take care, my friends. Lots of love! Ginger

 

We don't run off anymore

I used to run off if I had a chance to get out the gate. But, Lucy & I both promised mom & dad that we would stay with them if they give us one more chance. We went to the pond today & we stayed with the family. Well, I ran off for just a minute so I could check on the cat food in papaws barn. I used to love going in there & eating all the cat food. Koda went with me but he went over to the chickens. He was good though. He didn't try to get any of the chickens this time. He just looked at them. But, when mom & dad yelled for us to come back, we did. We just got a little side tracked, that's all.

I didn't get in the water. I don't like water very much. Lucy likes getting muddy. Koda & Fox like swimming in the deep water. Thanks, but I will just watch the others.

I added another picture. It was taken a couple of months ago but I wanted everyone to see what my dad did for us. He fixed us a place where we can ride on the motorcycle with them. We've only used it once & that was when we had to go get our hair cut. It was a lot of fun. We probably can't do it anymore though because Koda & Fox are too big.

Mom said she has to get our food ready so I guess I will let Gizmo write something.

 

It was nice to be out of the pen

We were allowed to get out of the pen with Koda & Fox today. I almost ran off but changed my mind when I heard mom say she would make me stay in the pen if I didn't get back quick. I decided I better listen to her. Me & Lucy used to like to run away when we were out of the pen. The best part for me was going up to papaws barn & eating all the cat food. hehehe

I like my new hair cut. I think it makes me look younger. I will try to get a picture on here soon so others can tell me what they think too. Talk to you all again soon! Love, Ginger

 

Who is getting food off the counter?

It's been two times now that mom & dad come home & the empty bread sack is in the floor. They are trying to figure out who is doing that. My guess would be Koda because he loves food like I do & he is big enough to get it off the counter. Us shorter dogs can't get it. But, if I could... you know I would because I love food too! I heard mom & dad talking & they are going to set up the video camera to catch the bread thief. I guess that will solve all of the guessing.

Mom thinks it is Koda because he grabs the empty bag & brings it to her when she walks in. I might know... but I'm not gonna tell on anyone.

 

Koda eats faster than I do!

I can't believe it. I'm usually the first one finished eating & then I try to sneak around to help Gizmo or Lucy finish their food but... Koda is faster than I am! He was eating some of Fox's food that had dropped on the floor beside his bowl, but mom told him he had to let Fox eat his by himself. Then I tried to sneak over by his bowl & mom caught me too. Fox didn't want all of his food. There was a little left so mom split it between all of us.

 

New Brothers

Mom and Dad came home today with two new brothers and they are BIG, especially the one they call Koda, Fox is not as big. They both seemed to be ok until mom & dad made our dinner. I had to compete with that HOG HEAD Koda for the dropped food. I was a little worried that the big hog head might try to eat me too, but he is real nice. He just needs to learn that the dropped food is my gig & if he wants some he needs to get it from the counter. He's tall enough, I'm not! If I was that tall I would be all over that counter getting the food. My new brother, Fox, is more laid back. I think we have a wonderful family. As long as we don't allow mom & dad to get anymore furkids! I'll let you know more later.

 

It has been awhile

Our mom gets too much going on at once and can't get it all done so we had to wait awhile before we could add anything to our diary. We've still been having some good times, we just wasn't able to get online for awhile.

I've been losing weight but I feel just fine. My mom was worried so I had to go to 2 doctors. One wasn't enough. She wanted another opinion. They took some blood to test and everything turned out good except for my white blood cell count. It was only a little less than what it was supposed to be. Mom says she can take care of that. I do need a tooth pulled though. So I will have to be going back to the doctor again soon.

The 2nd doctor put my rear to her belly and pushed against my knees. She told my mom that she does this to see how my knees are. She said I resisted against one and was asking my mom if she would be interested in the surgery to fix it, the surgery cost was $750.00. My mom said no way. She told that doctor that I don't act like it hurts me & mom thinks it will be fine. I still jump 3 feet to get off of the bed... even though mom has stairs there for us. Mom thinks that doctor is money hungry.

The doctor even started saying something about cancer and all kinds of crazy stuff since I haven't been gaining any weight and I pee in the bed sometimes. They treated me for round worms and I am at least ELEVEN years old! Mom gives us our herbs for worms, plus the other doctor had wormed me a couple months ago. Mom told them that I had are rice the past few days, that's probably what they saw. Mom went ahead with the worming medicine though.. just in case. This doctor doesn't think mom should cook for us. She says that the scientists have studied for years what our dogs should eat. If I could have talked, I would have told her to eat POOP! Mom feeds us meat, lots of veggies, fruit, beans, oatmeal, eggs, etc.. we get some great food!

I have to let Lucy & Gizmo add something in their diaries. I will try to write more soon.

 

Not feeling well today

Usually when mom gets out of the bed, we all do. Especially me because I am afraid there will be some food that I might miss out on. But, I wasn't feeling so good. Mom gave me some tums before she left for work. Mom said she would hurry home to check on me when she is done working.

 

Hello from me too

I had to wait until both Gizmo & Lucy were finished before I could say hi. I have been taking off when mom lets us go out the front door. I go up to our grandma & grandpa's. I used to always stay close to mom but I found out how to get into the barn & eat the cats food... I even eat the horses food sometimes! It has corn in it & I love corn. I love ALL FOOD! Speaking of food....
