Arrival Story: When my mommies were ready to get their first dog, they found a breeder and they were invited over to pick out the puppy they wanted from a two week old litter. But I was already there, 9 weeks old and ready for a home! They fell in love with my blue-green-brown eyes, and so they picked me!
Today I went with my mommas to go vote and rally support for the donkey race! Momma even got me a special bandana to wear with a donkey on it! I'm not sure what the donkeys were voting for but mom said I did good greeting the voters. Mom is happy about it; she said her favorite donkeys did well. Next time, I want to run for something. I love running!
So mommy showed us what she was hiding in the bathroom!!! It was a little yip-yappy dog! Mom said it just walked into the building she works in. Man it was stinky and looked sickly but she took it to the vet and now she is looking much better. We are calling her Rizzo after the muppets character because she came to us looking like a drowned rat. Mom said she is a purebred Yorkie. This weekend she is giving Rizzo to her grandma for mother's day. That's fine with me, all it does is sleep and bark, and when I try to play with her she bites!
We spent the weekend with Aunt Beez and they gave me ANOTHER BATH. Mom needs to talk to them about this. Every time I go, they give me a bath. I don't understand it. Then I have to go roll in the muddy ditch water again to get the flowery smell off me!
Last week there was a big party at Petsmart and only one momma was off work, so she took the three of us (Me, Dora, and Rizzo) by herself. She says never again! I don't know why, I was perfectly well behaved, I greeted everyone there (I didnt even jump up) and perform all the tricks I knew for them. If they had treats, I followed them around to do tricks! And I met lots of dogs and got to play and Jenny was there and she's my favorite and I sat nicely for the picture and learned how to do "high five" and when mom put that stupid party hat on my head I didn't even try to take it off! It must have been one of the other two misbehaving although I wouldn't know because I was busy being friendly to pay any attention to what mom was doing most of the time. I will never understand humans.
Woof! I had a fun weekend! Both mommas work every other weekend, and so on those weekend she takes me to gma's house so Aunt Beez can puppy-sit. Man does she take puppy-sitting seriously! She won't let us break any of momma's rules while we are there! But Dora and I got to run and play outside all day long while gma worked on her garden. And Dora had to stay on the lead, so I teased her about it all day. Nah nah nah, big baby can't run free like me, try to catch me now! Boy when we got home Saturday she sure let me have it then!
Momma says its good for me to have Dora chase me like that, because I'm such a lazy dog and I was getting sausage-like before Dora came home. Since she's been here I've lost 1/2 lb just from all the running around the house. I'm getting faster too, now when we race around the coffee table its takes 5 minutes or so before I slow down enough for Dora to catch me.
Momma D brought something home last night and she is keeping it in the bathroom. She won't let me in to see what it is, but all night long it made noises like a dying cat. I hope its not another cat, they outnumber Dora and I already! Momma says she will show me what it is later today. Until then she just says, Albie, Wait!
