Why the long face?

I heard mom tell dad today that we needed a bath. WHY?????? I am soooo beautiful. Can anyone explain this to me???? Oh well, at least I get to get REAL CLOSE TO DAD during my bath time. That is sooo worth it.


Whose couch is it anyway???

So everyone who knows me knows I own the loveseat in the living room. Mom and dad are kind enough to keep blankets over the loveseat so I am comfy (or they are trying to keep the hair off the couch) and even have backup blankets in case I drool while eating a bone, come in from the back yard on a rainy day and jump on my loveseat, etc.

Well, mom and dad wanted to watch a movie on the "big tv" in my living room (where my loveseat is) and I was ok with that.'s neck has been bothering her for about a month and she decided she needed to be on the loveseat, facing forward, to avoid aggravating same. I guess she did a good job at not aggravating her sore neck but she sure aggravated me. I had to lay on the floor amongst millions of toys with my brother and sisters.

Now I am not saying that I don't care about her neck pain. NOOO! I LOVE HER VERY MUCH! I am simply saying she could have shared the loveseat. I'm sure everyone agrees with me:)


Peticure's are overrated!

So...grandpa came over yesterday for our regular Tuesday night dinner and sleep over. He usually gets to our house hours before mom and dad get home from work. I was soo happy to see him when he came in that I wanted to hug him and by accident I cut his arm with my toenails. I didn't mean to. Grandpa has very sensitive skin because he is a little older so I try not to hurt him. When mom came home and saw the injury to grandpa's arm she decided I needed my nails trimmed again.

I am a very skittish dog b/c I had a very hard life b/f mom and dad saved me and I really don't like anything that makes noise. Mom and dad doesn't like taking me or my siblings to the vet for nail trims b/c it is traumatic when they accidentally go too far so, to make life a little bit easier they invested in a Peticure machine. My brother and sisters do not seem to mind it at all but I hate it. Everytime they give me a Peticure I lay on my back while daddy rubs my tummy and mommy does the dirty work. Though this might sound good to some of you dogs out there, I do not find it relaxing at all. As a matter of fact, I am sure I have eye strain from having "bug eyes" the entire time.

What confuses me more is that mommy gets very excited when she gets to get a pedicure. She leaves the house every other Saturday to get it done and when she comes back she tells daddy about the great massage chair she got to sit in and the movie that was playing while she got it done. I wonder what vet clinic she is going to. My vet has cold steel tables and videos about other dogs getting shots and stuff. Maybe if I went to her vet I would like it more. Dunno.

Oh well, the end result is obvious. I am getting a Peticure tonight:-(


Shots, Shots and More SHOTS

ok. I watch commercials on television while mom and dad aren't looking and I am aware that we are to have yearly vaccines. However, I am confused why we had to go to the vet this past weekend b/c we already had our vaccines for the year.

All I know is I have been chillin' out around the house and scratching/biting on myself quite a bit. Then I wake up one beautiful Saturday morning and mom is loading me and my brother Braun in the car. I am sooo confused when we turn down the road to go to the vet. Even more confused when we pull into the vet's parking lot.

Turns out, the vet wanted to give us another SHOT because we (apparently) have seasonal skin allergies. I am not sure they know what they are talking about so I am really not interested in another shot. But...I wasn't given a choice.

Well, the itching has died down quite a bit but I am still not convinced it was the shot. I just lick myself more. Right! No need for more shots! I'm telling daddy!


My dad rules!

I just looove my daddy. That is all I have to say in my diary today! He loves me just as much as I love him. He is the greatest dad of all and he spoils me sooo much. I think mommy is a little jealous. Hee Hee!


Love is in the air!!

Sooooo...Daddy has been working at night the last couple of weeks and mommy works during the day. Do you know what that means? Okay! Okay! I know that means they miss each other terribly but it also means LOTS OF LOVIN FOR ME:-) See, mommy gets up to go to work around 5:20 a.m. and leaves around 6:22. At that time we go in and cuddle with daddy until he gets up around 9:30-10:00 a.m. at which time we play and run and have all kinds of fun. Then...daddy leaves for work around 4:00 p.m. and mommy comes home around 5:00 p.m. at which time we play and run and have all kinds of fun. Get the picure??

I am not looking forward to daddy finishing this job and going back to days! This is the life!


Nail it...or not!

Hee Hee! Mommy went to give me a pedicure the other night and the machine stopped working without any warning! {God answers doggy prayers too!} She tried to charge the battery and everything but it would not come back to life! She called the company where Grandpa bought it for us and they said to send the old one in and they would send a replacement. I am sure I overheard them saying it would take 6-8 weeks to get the new one to her once they received the old one. HEE HEE!!!! No nail time for me... at least for a while.


Here in this house

Here in this house ......

I will never know the loneliness I hear in the barks of the other dogs out there.

I can sleep soundly, assured that when I wake my world will not have changed.

I will never know hunger, or the fear of not knowing if I'll eat.

I will not shiver in the cold, or grow weary from the heat.

I will feel the sun's heat, and the rain's coolness,
and be allowed to smell all that can reach my nose.

My fur will shine, and never be dirty or matted.

Here in this house.....

There will be an effort to communicate with me on my level.

I will be talked to and, even if I don't understand, I can enjoy the warmth of the words.

I will be given a name so that I may know who I am among so many.

My name will be used in joy, and I will love the sound of it!

Here in this house ......

I will never be a substitute for anything I am not.

I will never be used to improve peoples' image of themselves.

I will be loved because I am who I am, not someone's idea of who I should be.

I will never suffer for someone's anger, impatience, or stupidity.

I will be taught all the things I need to know to be loved by all.

If I do not learn my lessons well, they will look to my teacher for blame.

Here in this house ......

I can trust arms that hold, hands that touch..

Knowing that, no matter what they do, they do it for the good of me.

If I am ill, I will be doctored.'

If scared, I will be calmed.

If sad, I will be cheered.

No matter what I look like, I will be considered beautiful and thought to be of value.

I will never be cast out because I am too old, too ill, too unruly, or not cute enough.

My life is a responsibility, and not an afterthought.

I will learn that humans can almost, sometimes, be as kind and fair as dogs.

I will belong.

I will be home.


What is in that bird anyway?

The X-Files are noisy!

Last night mommy and I tried to go to bed before daddy, grandpaw and my furry family. We had such a hard time going to sleep b/c dady and grandpaw were watching the new disc that is out called X-Files. Now I don't know much about X-Files but I will tell you that it is VERY NOISY on the big screen with surround sound in the living room. It seemed like every time I layed my head down on mom's tummy we would hear a loud, creepy noise. I was not sure if I should bark or hide. Mommy tried to make me feel better by giving me lots of hugs and love but I was on edge. There was no sleeping with the X-Files on. Luckily daddy and grandpaw were too tired (from gradnpaw's surprise b-day party earlier in the evening) that they could not finish watching the whole thing and eventually turned it off and headed to bed. Whew, I was finally able to lay my head down and close my eyes.

In my dream I drafted a letter to the maker of this movie and told them that in the future the loud scenes should be in a tone that dogs can't hear. We need our beauty rest!
