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.


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


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!


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!


Ginger is telling stories again...

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 hate Mondays!

Lately I have decided the most comfortable place to be in the mornings is in the bathroom closet on top of mom and dad’s dirty clothes. It’s so warm and smells like my two favorite people in the world. I came to a realization this morning that Monday’s aren’t so great. Turns out mom and dad do laundry every weekend and that leaves the clothes hamper area empty. I absolutely did not approve of this this morning and mom could tell I was bothered. To make me feel better she took her pajamas and daddy’s towel from earlier and put them in the floor of the closet for me. While I appreciate the gesture, I am used to much more padding.

As far as I am concerned - I hate Mondays and will do so until they decide to stop doing laundry on the weekends. Tina.


New and cool hiding/sleeping area!!!

I typically get up at the crack of dawn with mommy to help her get ready for work. I try to eat her shoes so she doesn’t have to leave me but she has caught on to my “little habit” and keeps all edible items out of my reach. We have a routine: (1) We wake up to daddy calling telling us to get up; (2) Mom turns the heater on in the bathroom and shuts the door (3) We let the dogs out for potty break – this includes me; (4) Mom let’s us back in and checks to make sure daddy remembered to turn off the coffee pot; (5) Mom gets her clothes together and we head into the bathroom for a shower.

I go in the bathroom with mommy every morning b/c I like to lay in front of the heater while she is getting ready for work. Sooo warm! Anyway, today mommy pokes her head out of the shower to check on me and she couldn’t find me. She was pretty confused and I heard her talking to herself, questioning her sanity as she was sure I went in the bathroom with her b/f she closed the door. She came out of the shower and toweled off, peeking out of the bathroom calling for me when I came up from behind her. See, I found the neatest place in the bathroom that I had no idea existed before today…the laundry closet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was laying in there on mom and dad’s clothes all nice and warm. It was so neat. It even smells just like mommy and daddy which makes it even better.

Bad news is that when mommy gets ready to leave for work she closes all the doors to other rooms because “someone” in the house has a bad habit of playing with things they shouldn’t. When she tried to get me out of the laundry closet I resisted. If I were bigger I could’ve won that battle. Ohhhh, I miss the laundry closet. Til tomorrow morning:--)

I am honored to receive this award. I have come from humble beginnings and know what it means to struggle your way to the top. For me the top is my family but second to that is my friends/family on Dogster whom I have grown to love sooo much. I love reading everyone's stories. Some make me cry and some make me laugh out loud. All of them are special to me.

Thank you so much for choosing my diary as the Diary of the Day. God bless my entire family at home and on Dogster!

I hope everyone has a great week.


I love cold weather!!!

Ok, ok, ok. For all of my pup pals you already know that I am a whippet and I get very cold all the time due to my little body and my thin hair. But, it has been really cold here in Atlanta lately and I have learned to love it. See, typically mom and dad come home from work and we all go out in the back yard to play for a bit. We don't stay out as long as I would like b/c mom and dad usually have "stuff" to do in the evening (cook dinner, yard work, etc.) and we get a little bored. Well, when it is really cold out mom and dad come home, start a fire in the fireplace, watch a movie and have soup with grilled cheese sandwiches.

You may ask yourself, how does this benefit me?? I will let fill you in. Mommy gets in the recliner with a blanket and I quickly join her for hours of love & cuddling while watching a movie. When mommy gets up to check the soup on the stove or go potty (so not fair they get to go inside) I go stand in front of the fireplace and warm my bofy. Winter is sooo awesome. I think God made winter for me:--)


Can we have rain all the time?

I am sending out a special request to “the man” asking for more rain. I have several reasons behind this… (1) Georgia is still in a drought. Heard that on the news (2) Mom and dad stay indoors more when it rains (which means more time for us to cuddle & play) and (3) There is nothing as fun as rolling around in a big mud puddle in the back yard!!!!!

More rain pleeeeeeease!!!
