Back from the vet today

I had to go back to the vet today for my dew claw. It was not that great as the nail had split all the way down and the doc had to take it. I was very scared but handled it very well. Dad said I was all teary eyed but I told him that wasn't tears, that was drool that had somehow made its way up instead of down. Nonetheless, the doc was so proud of how tough I was that he gave me a camouflage bandage! LIKE A MARINE! Hoooraaahh! Mom plans on adding a video of me having a mini panic attack at the vet's office but that proves nothing...all Marines get a little nervous before they go into battle!!! Some just show it more than others! I have to rest and take it easy all day so I am off to take a nap with mommy. Love to all my Dogsters!

 

Daddy is Awesome!

Last night our family was very stressed out about my brother Braun. He is set to go in for a vet appointment to have a "mysterious lump" checked out on Saturday morning. Mom is more stressed out than daddy which is really weird because mom is most known for her "bowl half full" theory of daddy's "bowl IS empty" theory when it comes to life in general.

Anyway, we spent most of the evening stressing about the "what if's" and mom cried a little because she is soooooooooooooooo emotional and dad spent time calming her down. Dad tried to lay out the good, bad and ugly of the situation and tried to reassure mommy by saying..."no matter if it is cancer, we will pay for it and deal with it"..." he is our boy and it will be ok".!!!!!!!!!!!! WHAT????( mommy says).

There is no question mom and dad will do anything to take care of us so dad's comment was a little out of place. After all, men aren't very good at FULLY understanding women's feelings/thoughts....so mom tells us.

The night ended with tears and worry. We all feel mom and dad's emotions and as a result I was worn out. I showed signs of the stress which had worn on me and I got real tired/restless.

As you can see from my newly poster photo, my family takes the time to make sure we are all ok before we go to sleep.

Tonight I will spend my evening praying for my brother Braun and hoping that tomorrow's vet appointment is a good one...not a bad one.

Love to all my Dogsters!

Daddy wanted to ride with me and that is ok . I rode him around the backyard only because we didn't have our helmets on. Daddy was getting all the bikes cleaned and juiced up for the dirt biking trip and I thought I would give him some pointers. Just to be safe:-) I look good on that Yamaha don't I??? Mommy had a Honda...daddy says Honda sux. BOL!

 

Forgiveness

To err is human—to forgive, canine. I, Tina Smith forgive the people who treated me so badly before mom and dad saved me. I hope and pray they have learned a lesson and are no longer being cruel to the sweet furbabies in this world.

 

Thank Dog for No Rules!

I am so very happy my mom and dad do not enforce rules around our dog house. I have a chair (mom thinks it is hers) that I like to lay on, lean on, jump on and sometimes make it fall over. No rules means I can do what I want on my (mom's) chair. Only thing I can't do is stay on it when mommy and daddy are getting ready to watch a movie. Buttheads! BOL! Mom added pics of me doing "what I want" on my (mom's) chair. Love to all my Dogsters!!

 

The Look

I am sure most of my Dogsters are aware of this “trick”, for which we don’t get treats…BUT, for those that have no idea, I offer the “key to happiness”. We all know our people wake up really early to “go earn treats” as mommy describes it as she leaves each morning. (Funny thing is, she never says that on Saturday & Sunday!) . Nonetheless, my mommy & daddy think they own the bed in my room. They are constantly laying on it, watching TV on it, browsing web sites on it, etc.

Well, last night I jumped on the bed to show my love & appreciation for my pawrents when…all of a sudden…my (typically) sweet mother yelled at me and said “DOWN”!!

What? “Me no speak that language”! I realized my mission would not be easy, but, turns out mommy felt sooooooooooooooooooooo bad about raising her voice (at 2:00a.m ish) that I knew at this point I was in charge. I broke out the Baby Doe eyes and I was in!!!!!!!!!!!! Turns out that look works fur pretty much everything. Enjoy “the look” my Dogsters!

 

I got to go visit Grandpaw at his new place

Mommy has been so very busy lately so she hasn’t had time to update my diary this week. I gave her a hard time last night because I wanted everyone to know about my adventure last Saturday. Mean mommy forgot the camera so we didn’t get any good picture so I will have to go again in order to preserve same with pics. Nonetheless, I did get to go see Grandpaw all by myself last weekend and it was tons of fun. He has a new place with his new wife and it was really nice. When I first got in the car I wasn’t sure what the heck was going on because I wasn’t hurt and wasn’t due for my shots so WHY WAS I BEING TAKEN TO THE VET??

I was less worried when we passed “the road” to the vet and then became a little freaked out. Where were they taking me?? This area looked so familiar…it was where I was hauled in a cage, in a car with all my other cell mates every Saturday for a long time to see if anyone wanted to take us to a furever home. There is no way they are taking me back!!! I began to hyperventilate and pressed myself as hard as I could against my Daddy in an effort to remind him how much he loves me. I even began to shed a whole bunch of my hair in the car so they would feel guilty if they did in fact take me back. I moaned and whined quite a bit too.

Imagine my surprise when we turned a different direction and when we parked…there was GRANDPAW!!!!! I was sooo happy to see him! We went in his new place and it was all clean and nice & there was this little bitty tiney winey dog there. I had heard talk of a new dog in the family. I was told (by my brother Braun) that we had a new uncle since Grandpaw got married but, I never expected to be soooooo much bigger than my uncle and I never expected my uncle to hump my leg repeatedly…to each his own I guess.

Anyway, my new uncle’s name is Taz and we hit it off pretty well, except when I had to snap at him for being “too friendly”. We visited inside for a while then we went outside to visit with the neighbors. There were two other dogs I got to meet that day. One was Brandy and the other was Opey. They were both super cute. We hung out, chatted, peed, sniffed each others butts – you know, the usual.

I did kiss Grandpaw several times while there. I miss seeing him as often as we used to but, that will be ok soon as mom & dad are going on vacation for a whole week and Grandpaw is staying with us! WHOO HOO! Can’t wait to share those adventures on here.

Mom has to go back to work now. Love to all my furriends.

 

I have a new Furriend!!!

Hello all my pup pals!!! We have been out of touch for a little bit because mommy and daddy were having problems with that thing called the internet at home and we have all been in withdrawals! Once the man got it fixed I BEGGED mommy to let you guys know about my new furriend named "Alf". He has been in our home fur a long time but we were never able to play with him. Those of you who know our family know we lost our grandmother to cancer years back and grandpaw moved to Georgia to be with us. When he first moved here he stayed at our house and WE LOVED IT but, he did move into his own place and remarried. He left Alf at our home and it was hiding from us fur a while until mom decided to re-do the spare bedroom and sat Alf on the bed.

From that point forward ALF WAS MINE! I refuse to let anyone else play with him. Mommy gets a little growl every time she tries to take him away. I made a poem fur my new furriend:

I got a new furriend and his name is Alf.
He has been here a while, living in our house.
He hid in the spare room...away from danger.
Until mom decided to be a re-arranger.

She moved him up. She moved him down.
She was careful enough not to sit him on the ground.
She did make a mistake and sat him on the bed.
I saw my moment and I grabbed him by his head.

He doesn't go outside.
He has a big mouth.
He loved hanging with me.
Until our furriendship went South.

I ate his nose and a little of his face.
Now we are furriends and we share our space.

LOVE IT HUH?

Mom posted some pics of me & Alf having a good time. She didn't want to post them on my profile pic as she finds it too hard to get rid of the one where me & dad are cuddling!

Take care!!

 

Family Opinion Poll on new Fursis "Chleo"

I am personally not fond of her yet. I was the baby in the house until she showed up. I have been sad and depressed. Not my usual self. This is day 3.5 and she has distracted mother more than I would like. I heard Mommy tell Daddy he needs to pay special attention to me to make sure I don't feel so sad and jealous. I am not opposed to that plan. Will let you know how that works out.

p.s. NOTE TO CHLEO: Stop waking mommy in the middle of the night...it makes her super moody the next day. BOL!
