As you can see from my sister Ginger's post today she is up to no good - again. Not only is she blaming her hurt paw on me but she is planning on milking this hurt paw thing for another couple of days.

She is always standing right next to me when I dig these holes. She waits anxioulsy to see if there is anything down in there. So, I ask you to explain how she doesn't know where they are when she is running fill blast through the yard??

As far as I am concerned she did it on purpose so she could get some extra love and attention. I need to figure out how to limp so I can get babied for a while. Any advise?


I'm back!

Hello my furriends! I have been slacking on the diary lately (blame it on the humans as they have yet to teach me how to type) and feeling kinda bad I havent't updated as well as all of my furry pup pals.

I am still in training to become a Marine. My human brother is also interested so I am hoping he will let me in on some of the test questions so I can breeze through that when it comes up. I train on a daily basis: chase squirrels, stalk the neighbor’s dog, jump grandpaw every time he comes over, eat a hearty meal, move the troops (aka stuffed toys) from room to room in perfect formation and even get a good amount of rest (as you can see from most of my photos). Soon, I will be there to serve my Country – as needed. Hehehehehehehe.

A few weeks ago all three of my furry family members were due for something at the vet and I pitched a fit at the idea that mom and dad would leave me home alone so I got my way and they loaded me in the car. I was ok until I realized where we were. At that point – PANIC ATTACK! I know this wouldn’t look good to my fellow Marines but….I’m just sayin’! You go in there and let him do to you what he does to me once a year and you would be a nervous nelly as well!

Life at home is peachy! Mom has given up the middle of the night fight to keep me off the bed. I usually lay on my dog bed until mom and dad start snoring and then crawl slowly into bed with them and under the covers. Mom used to wake up several times a night and return me to my dog bed but I think she got tired of that and just gave in. That is the way to wear ‘em down! I think my infiltration techniques are already set to be Devil Dog! Ooo Rah!

That’s all for now b/c mommy has to work. I will get her back on here soon. Take care all my furry furrieds!


I love my mommy and she loves me...

Mom and dad are back from their trip and I heard them talking with grandpaw about their weekend. Apparently they had a fabulous time riding dirt bikes with all of their friends and they even got to have some good grilled food while hanging at the camp site.

I was so happy to hear mommy tell grandpaw how much she missed us even though she knew we were in good hands. She said she especially missed me at night b/c I am always in the bed with her. Even when she makes me get down (on my dog bed) I climb back up when she is sleeping and get right up next to her under the covers.

Since I can't speak "human" I passed a note to grandpaw asking him to let her know I missed her just as much as she missed me!

When mommy got home Sunday she layed in the bed with us and we all took a nap together. I so love my mommy!


The great escape

Hello Furriends! You will not believe what I have been up to the last couple of days. It has been super windy here in Georgia and this has been working to my advantage.

Yesterday mom pulled in the driveway and dad let us into the back yard. This is a routine so we don’t jump all over mommy when she walks in the door. Mom does the same for anyone else who comes over when she is home. My sister Austin gets so excited to see daddy that she moans real loud and lets out some pee pee. We aren’t supposed to do that in the house but somehow it is acceptable and cute when she does it out of excitement. I think the rule should be all or nothing but that’s me.

Anyway, back on subject. Daddy let us into the back yard so mommy could get out of her car and come in the house. She was barely out of her car before we all noticed the gate was partially opened and ran out of the back yard straight for the car. Me and my sister Austin jumped in the car while Braun and Ginger just kinda ran around all confused like. Mom honked the steering wheel really loud and dad came out to round us up. We all wondered how the gate got open. Heard mom and dad say it was the meter reader {probably} who forgot to close it when he left.

Well, this morning daddy got up bright and early. Me and Austin got up with him and Braun & Ginger stayed in bed with mommy. As soon as daddy let me and Austin out I went to check the gate…I aint stupid! Low and behold the gate was wide open. I told Austin about it and then I took off like a wild horse in the wind. Flying I was! Flying! Turns out the wind was strong enough to blow the gate wide open!!!!!!!!!!!!

I heard later from Braun & Ginger that daddy came running into the room to wake mommy up telling her that we had run off. Mom was so upset that she ran out of the room into the front yard in her jammies, barefooted. Her and dad were calling our names but I didn’t hear them. I was down the road visiting the neighbor dogs who live outside full time. They were barking pretty loud for that hour of the morning. Geez!

Turns out Austin was fishing for some beggin strip points because she never left the back yard. Mom said she came walking out of the fence looking at her like… “what’s going on?”. Show off! I on the other hand didn’t come back until I was done telling all the neighbor dogs how great my life was at home. They were slightly jealous until dad and mom caught up to me. Then they did not want to be me. It was not good. They were pretty ticked.

Moral of the story is…be a show off like my sister Austin because the run is not so fun.

Love Tina

my mommy loves me so much - no doubt! but as i was recently reminded, she is not perfect. all my dogster peeps know how much i love to lay in the bathroom closet on top of mom & dad's dirty clothes while mommy gets ready for work in the morning. i really like the smell of mom & dad in that closet. i also like the me time while mommy is getting ready in the bathroom.

yesterday morning mommy got ready and was in such a hurry to get out that she almost forgot to let my sister Austin in from the backyard and she DID forget to make sure i was out of the bathroom before she shut the door for the day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

that was very traumatic! mommy locked me IN the BATHROOM while my brother, and sisters were running free in the house. i was so scared and freaked out. I HAD TO GET OUT OF THERE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

at first i just scratched at the door thinking someone would hear me and let me out. that didn't work so i was forced to take drastic measures. i ate and scratched my way through the bathroom door.

BAD MOMMY! look at what you made me do. She knew she was in the wrong and was sooooo sorry by the time she got home & realized what happened. I liked all of the {apologetic} attention but was pretty much over it since i had broken out of the room way earlier in the day.

On the other hand - mommy had quite the mess to clean up when she got home! Hope she learned her lesson!

As you can see from my recently UPLOADED PICTURES OF THE DAMAGE which you can see at the very botttom of my Dogster Plus Photobook or you can simply cut/paste the following links 1244819793.jpg 8/866328_1244819823.jpg /28/866328/866328_1244819844.jpg

I am pretty sure she will not do that again. I still love you mommy. Tis ok.


Damned Bees!

I have decided the 4th of July sux. It seemed a great occasion when mom first spoke of it. All the family coming over, all the food being cooked on the grill and all the yard time a dog could ask for in one day. However, the bees screwed it all up!

I was minding my business when I happened upon a mound behind the shed. Being the investigative dog I am I needed to make sure it was safe for the other dogs. I got closer and closer and all of a sudden felt this really unusual sensation on my face. I came running out from behind the shed and did a nose dive in the burn pile. Mom saw me and asked Daddy what I was doing. Dad was confused and Mommy called me over to her.

It took me a minute to get back to the porch & see what Mommy wanted b/c I needed to stop every step or so to rub my head on the ground. By the time I made it to Mommy I heard her telling Daddy to take me inside and keep a close eye on me b/c I was more than likely stung. WHAT???? WHAT IS THIS “STUNG” THING THAT IS RUINING MY YARD TIME??

Once Daddy got me inside he checked me for holes, well, ones that aren’t supposed to be there- HA! No snake bites I heard him tell mom. We decided to chill on the couch and watch the Tour de Furrrance. Wasn’t long afterwards that Daddy asked Mommy if my nose usually had that bump in the middle. Mom looked and seconds later it was all a panic! Mom grabs my leash and we are out the door.

Wasn’t sure where we were going or why mom was so upset. Found it even more confusing that dad sat in the back seat with me. I panicked at first thinking we were going to the vet but we didn’t turn that direction so I calmed down a bit. That is until we pulled up to a building that had all the characters of a vet but was not my vet.

Long story short – damned bees bit me and I had to get three freakin shots on the 4th of July. I was super embarrassed that mom and dad wanted to take pictures of the whole event which they have added to my Dogster Plus photo album. . BUT – THE WORST PART was the shots made me so sleepy I missed the food & fun. I am over it by now but at the time it was very upsetting. I am in the middle of drafting an Eviction Notice to Mr. and Mrs. Bee!


My mommy loves all- breeds!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

BEWARE: What Pit Bulls Are Really Like:

1. They will steal your spot on the couch if you get up for something.
2. They will take the treat you give them and bury it in the back yard like a paranoid crack head hiding their stash
3. They will jump on your bed with muddy feet. Making you do laundry – again!
4. They will lick visitors with uncontrolled passion only they can understand
5. They will cause children to smile
6. They will make you feel horrible for not walking them by looking at you with deep sad eyes
7. They will look at you like you committed a crime against them if you don’t let them lick your ice cream bowl
8. They will cause wide spread happiness in large group settings
9. They will crack you up by shaking their butt so hard you think they are going to snap in half


***They will steal your heart like a thief in the night, showing you complete and pure love that only a Pit Bull can show***
