New treat!

Today we went on a wine country adventure. When we go there, one thing mommy and daddy do is have a picnic. This involves all kinds of yummy-smelling people-food that they eat outdoors. Winkie and I are not supposed to get any. We're not even supposed to want any. But, unlike when mommy and daddy eat indoors, like at home, on a picnic they tie us to the table.

If I'm gonna be tied up to a table, I want what's up there! (Winkie doesn't care, he just curls up and naps!) So I pester daddy. (It's no use pestering mommy, don't even try it!) I paw at his legs, or I try to jump up in his lap or onto the table. Over the years, I've trained him to bribe me with doggy treats and chews. He has spent my whole life looking fur chews that will keep me occupied a l-o-o-o-n-g time, so he can eat his food!

He may have found it.

Mommy bought this thing she called a him-o-layin' chew. It's long and yellow and squarish. When daddy furst gave it to me I kind of sniffed at it, but I wasn't interested. I didn't know what it was. Daddy said, "Well, that's a failure." He gave me one of the chicken-y bone-ish thingies I've been getting fur awhile. But honestly, those are kinda boring. We just left the him-o-layin' thing laying in the grass.

Pretty soon I gave it another sniff, and then a lick. Hmmmmmm, this thing had pawsibilities. I tried to get a tooth on it, but it was really hard! Hmph. So I left it, but pretty soon I tried again. And the more I chewed at it, the more I liked it! Then just when I got one end kinda softened, it was time to go home and it got put away.

When we got home we got a small din-din, because of eating treats during the day. That's mommy's dumb idea. But then, daddy hauled out the him-o-layin' chew and gave it back to me! OMD!! I'm nevfur letting that thing out of my mouf again! I trotted all ovfur the house with it! I chewed it here, and I chewed it ovfur there, and then I jumped up on the couch with it--which I've nevfur done with ANY chew befure--and when I got tired and my eyelids started drooping it was still in my mouf. Mommy says my jaw will be sore in the morning, but I'm not dropping it! I'm gonna dream about it all night! ZZZZZZZzzzslrphzzzzzzmunchzzzz..........


Not That Much Fun

Mommy and daddy had to go away fur a few days to the land of sleet and snow. Winkie and I couldn't go, and we couldn't stay home alone, so we had to stay someplace else. Usually we stay at the Wag Hotel, which is furry nice. But there is no grass there fur Winkie to eat, and Winkie NEEDS his grass. So mommy and daddy found another place.

It sounded nice. We'd be spending the days outdoors with other doggies, in a big fenced field with lots of grass. At night when all the other doggies went home, we'd stay at the lady's house with her and her five doggies. That's a lot of doggie-ship! Although pawsonally, I prefer hooman-ship.

We were okay with the daycare. Winkie likes to run around off-leash and play. Me, I mostly look fur a lap or other comfy place to lounge. But at night, it wasn't like being at home. We had to sleep where there were no hoomans. I don't like that, and I said so! HOOOOWWWWLLLLL!!!!!

The lady didn't like that. Her roommate didn't like it. I wasn't sure they liked me. I couldn't wait fur mommy and daddy to come back.

We're home now, and I have my own crate and my place on the couch right next to daddy, and all is right with the world! We even got new toys, because it was Winkie's Barkday while mommy and daddy were gone. We're not evfur going back to that place. Daddy promised.

OMD, my pal Champ is a star again!!

Evfurry morning mommy goes to Freekibble to answer a trivia question and win some kibble fur shelter doggies. (Your mommy should do that! It's fun and mommy learns a lot, too!)

So this morning the question was about a doggie mommy who wins phodography awards, and it turned out to be Champ's mommy Candice! You can see a bunch more pawsome photos on his page: Champ.

WTG Champ and mommy!!!

Last night we heard that Brenda, Rudy Patudy's mommy, had left fur heaven. I'm sure Patches, Coco and Chester were furry excited to see their mommy at the Bridge and help her with her new wings! Now they can all cross ovfur togefur!

But down here it's a furry sad time. We're pawraying fur daddy Ken, and Rudy, Freddy and Elmer kitty. Their lives will be so different now. Dogster will be different, too. With his mommy gone, we won't be hearing Rudy's little bark and funny language anymore. We won't be watching Freddy grow up. My heart hurts.



Thanks, Nonny-Mouse!

A Day Out

Not this day, but yesfurday, we went on a little adventure. We went in the car, in the direction where the ocean is on mommy's side. It wasn't a long ride. There's a fun beach down that way, but we didn't stop there. Instead, we went the other way, up a hill, and then we stopped and got out on a street with houses. Daddy picked one, and we could smell lots and lots of doggy smells there!

We didn't go inside. We met a nice lady, and two big doggies! The doggies were both relaxing in their crates, but we touched nosies and they were furry nice. Daddy and mommy and the lady did a lot of talktalktalk, and the lady gave us treats! I think I heard them making plans fur Winkie and me to come fur a visit!

Soon we got back in the car and headed fur home. Daddy stopped at the place where they burn MEATZ™. As usual, he got lots of it fur himself and mommy and NOTHING fur us. But at home we got greenies while they ate, and then we spent the rest of the day loafing!


Well, THAT Was Different!

We went on an adventure today. It was a long car ride, to the picnic place and the castle where we usually go at Christmas. But this time it was way different. It started the same, with daddy packing our traveling bag with extra treats, and filling our traveling water bottle. But we didn't leave. We sat. And we waited. Then at last there was a knock on our door. Daddy opened it, and there was a lady there I nevfur met. Of course I jumped all ovfur her, but she didn't mind. I liked her!

Next we went to get in the car. But not our car. We got into a different car, with the lady and a man. Mommy lifted Winkie into the back seat just like always, and then she climbed inside. Then daddy lifted me (because it was too high fur me to jump), and then HE climbed inside. In the BACK seat, with ME!! OMD, Winkie and I got to trade mommy and daddy laps all the way up, and all the way back home again!! It was wonderfur!!

We also got lots of treats at different places while the hoomans were eating and all. If we ran out, I reminded daddy by pawing his leg or putting my paws up on the table. Mommy would say, "BAD Hershey!" But the man and lady said they furgot we were even there. They said they wish their dogs were as well-mannered as we are! So when we got home mommy said she was proud of us, and gave us extra big snuggles, and promised we can go on that adventure again!

My Turn

Winkie began the month of January with a trip to the vet and a bunch of pills. That got him some extra attention, so I decided to do the same. I started February by pooping in the house, which I NEVFUR do, and then my poop got all runny. So I went to the vet on Saturday. He gave me two shots, and gave mommy two bottles of pills. Daddy gave him some of my poop to look at. I've been eating chicken and rice fur four days now!

Today mommy called and found out that I do NOT have a virus or a bacterial infection. She didn't find out what I do have, though. They said maybe a parasite? They said keep feeding me chicken and rice and pills. I like chicken and rice, AND I get the pills in yummy pockets! I feel fine and I'm pooping real poop again. All in all, I'd say this is a good way to start any new month!


Mommy Has New Tires

I haven't seen them, but she swears she's re-tired now, and she's nevfur lied to us. She seems pretty happy about it! I wanted to help her celebrate, so I started two sleeps ago, leaving her some runny messes on the dining room carpet! She got furry excited, let me tell you. I've noticed since then that, if I even look like I'm THINKING about going outside, BOOM! I'm outside! BOL!!!

Winkie's helping, too. Mommy found some fleas on his belly. So many good gifts fur Mommy! So we both got Frontlined a day early, but Winkie's fleas haven't packed up yet. (Fleas don't show up so well on me. If I have them, I'm not talkin'.)
