I have Beauty and Brains!

Mom has recently taken a liking to making videos of us on that new camera Daddy got her for Christmas. She has made several of which I was a willing participant. However, this weekend I let her know who is boss when it comes to that “pupparazzi” type stalking she has been doing.

See, I wasn’t looking my best this weekend. It rained and I like to play in the rain/mud. Call me crazy but I think it helps my fur to be shinier and fuller. The shiny/full effect does not happen immediately…you must first let the mud stay on your fur for a while. I was doing this over the weekend and mommy decided to break out the camera and attempt to make a video of me in the back yard. I WAS HAVING NONE OF THAT! I was not looking my best and did not want to be seen on camera that way. Mom tried for about an hour to get a good video of me but I used all of my brains to prevent same. For all of my Dogsters out there that find themselves in the same predicament – here is some tips to having the video deleted and not used without your consent:

1. Fart while on camera

2. Crap while on camera

3. Snip at one of your furfamily’s legs while on camera

4. Hang out by the very unattractive burn pile in the back yard

5. Hide behind the moto trailer for the duration of filming and when mom
walks up on you behind the trailer, walk really close to her feet so she
quits filming because she doesn’t want her belly in the film

6. Run in fast circles making yourself a blur

7. Eat grass

8. Put your ears down and tail between your legs like you have just been the
victim of animal abuse.

I found that all of these techniques have worked quite well for me. After all…I am beautiful and I have brains. Better luck next time mommy! Love – Ginger


10 Ways My Pups Will Know it is Me

January 29th 2010 6:53 am

1. When I come home, I let tater (Austin) come out front to do her excited pee before going in the house. I tell teeny weeny (Tina) “hold on- I can’t walk that fast to the back door to get you out”, I reassure my boo boy (Braun) that he was loved and missed all day and I tell blondie (Ginger) “no treats until you go out and do your business”

2. I will ask my pups if they want to go for a walk. Why I bother asking, I don't know. The answer will always be From Ginger "only if it is in the back yard because you know how creeped out I am about going through the front door!!". From Austin “will there be food involved?”. From Braun “only if you let me off y leash to roam free about the neighborhood whilst you look for me” and from Tina “YES YES YES YES YES YES! *hyperventilating*”

3. Rather than being the Pack Leader and insisting my dogs make room for me on the couch. Loveseat, bed, spot in front of stove in kitchen, etc. I simply work around them, trying not to disturb their peace.

4. When I tell Tina it is time to go to bed (in other words get off our bed and into her dog bed) she looks at me as if I have beaten her with ears down, eyes bugged out and shivering so I inevitably say “Awwww! It is ok honey. You had such a bad life before us so you can stay in the bed”. Making me so uncomfortable all night long but – so worth it! Thank God the other three dogs prefer to sleep in their dog beds!

5. When I am done with a roll of toilet paper I will throw it in the middle of all the dog toys and see who finds it first. That dog gets to chew it to shreds and then I clean it up for them.

6. I think nothing of my dogs sniffing my butt or my hair or even my clothing. Humans on the other hand – psycho comes to mind!

7. I pull dog hair from my food and try to guess which dog it came from. Human hair will make me throw a steak away!

8. When I wake up from a nap on the weekends and Daddy is in the living room while the dogs are still in the bedroom with me. I stir them up quietly by saying things like “whose here?” or knocking on the wall by the bed in order to get Daddy to run down the hall and let them outside to potty – trying to keep them from waking me! LOL! This works every time!!

9. I come home from the grocery store with five bags for dogs and two bags for humans. Needless to say there is no room on the top of my fridge or the bread box for anything but dog treats!

10. I think nothing of picking up their puke. Even when it is full of food, grass and unknown substances. I have been known to stand behind my dogs while they throw up – petting them to make them relax. Never did that for my husband but think I recall a story (before marriage) of him holding me in the truck while I threw up. LOL!

To all of my furfriends: Mommy got a digital camera/video camera for Christmas and she used it to take a video of us in the kitchen with Daddy yesterday. It is titled “We love the Kitchen”. Mom loves the fact that our Dogster pals can see and hear us in action versus a still shot. We are too cute to not be on video! Check us out:--) Love – The Smith Family.


Love breaks Barriers!

Ever since I came to my forever home I have been the most nervous/anxious dog because I was very mistreated by my former family. Christmas was always a nightmare for me. I would hide in the back room until everything was over and then daddy would come and coax me out – once all the boxes, etc. had been removed from the living room. Mom and dad were always very understanding and accepted me for who I was. They showed me tons of love and even brought my presents in the bedroom for me to smell and get used to them without everyone around. All of that love has finally paid off! This year I stayed in the room with all the bags and paper and boxes and toys and everything! I had such a great time!! Every time daddy opened a new present for us (there were four of everything b/c there are four furbabies) I would grab mine and take it to the loveseat. After a while I had quite a pile going for myself. As you can see from the holiday pics I was smiling from ear to ear and having a blast. I overheard Mommy and Grandpaw saying (on several occasions) saying “I can't believe Ginger is out here” and “look how much fun she is having”. Even Daddy was so very proud of me. If I could talk I would tell them “Thank you for the love and patience. You helped me break the barrier I once knew as fear”. I LOVE YOU!!!


Merry Christmas

Dear Dogs and Cats:

The dishes with the paw prints are yours and contain your food.. The other dishes are mine and contain my food. Placing a paw print in the middle of my plate and food does not stake a claim for it becoming your food and dish, nor do I find that aesthetically pleasing in the slightest.

The stairway was not designed by NASCAR and is not a racetrack. Racing me to the bottom is not the object. Tripping me doesn't help because I fall faster than you can run.

I cannot buy anything bigger than a king sized bed. I am very sorry about this. Do not think I will continue sleeping on the couch to ensure your comfort, however.. Dogs and cats can actually curl up in a ball when they sleep. It is not necessary to sleep perpendicular to each other, stretched out to the fullest extent possible. I also know that sticking tails straight out and having tongues hanging out on the other end to maximize space is nothing but sarcasm.

For the last time, there is no secret exit from the bathroom! If, by some miracle, I beat you there and manage to get the door shut, it is not necessary to claw, whine, meow, try to turn the knob or get your paw under the edge in an attempt to open the door. I must exit through the same door I entered. Also, I have been using the bathroom for years - canine/feline attendance is not required.

The proper order for kissing is: Kiss me first, then go smell the other dog or cat's butt. I cannot stress this enough.

All our love - Mom and Dad

The Girls Love IcePops!!!!!!!!!

Last night daddy decided he wanted an ice pop from the freezer while watching Survivor. When he got to the freezer his favorite flavor (lemonade) wasn’t there so he decided to try one of the grape ones. He really didn’t like the grape one and gave it to mommy. Mommy tried the grape ones a couple of weeks ago and knew she didn’t like it so…she decided to let us give it a try. First mommy tries to let my brother Braun get a few licks in but he didn’t like it either! Next mommy let me get a few licks in and IT WAS GRRRREEEAAATTT! She then let my little sister Tina and my big sister Austin have some. We were all so excited about this new fabulous frozen goodie that we all couldn’t wait until it was our turn to get a lick so we all started eating it at the same time out of mommy’s hand. Daddy got the most awesome photo of all three of us sharing the grape pop which, by the way, left an unappealing purple stain on mine and Tina’s tan fur. Oh well, it was worth it. Mommy added our pop sharing pic in my dogster plus photo album today. You gotta check it out!!!!!
