A Stuffed Flower for Poor Little Lily...

April 1st 2011 4:30 am

So Mommy and I went to the pet store yesterday so we could get a gift for Little Lily. I think we found the perfect gift for her, we pick out a stuffed flower for her that is nice and bright, and it is big enough that she can use it for a pillow till she feels good enough to play with it. Mom also bought her some really yummy treats for when she is feeling better, and I sampled them just to make sure they tasted as good as they sounded, how can you go wrong with peanut butter and banana flavor I ask you? I think they are good enough for her but I may have to test a few more just to make sure. We are going to walk down to her house a little latter this morning and check on her and drop off her gift. I wish she was feeling better so we could make puppy angles in the snow, and no it’s not an April Fools Joke, there really is snow here in New England. Mother Nature played the best April Fools prank yet. Bol
I let you know how Lily is fairing when we get back…


Yum, yum it's Jayden

Yea, my granddaughter Jayden can over to play this weekend. Our movie is on already, those “Beverly Hill Chihuahua’ puppies have nothing on little old Colin Doggie. I cannot wait till the girls start cooking in the kitchen later so I can play vacuum, that Jay is always good for a spill or two. It’s good to be the Doggie here.


I am almost brave enough to say that spring has finally come- to New England. Almost!

It looks like it is going to be another nice day here, and I am almost brave enough to say that spring has finally come to New England. Almost! The last few days here have been really nice and sunny, so mom and I are hoping that it will stay this way for a while. Why the other day was so nice mom and I took a long walk to go visit my friends Lily’s mom at her work. Mom had not heard from her since the surgery and we were starting to get a slightly worried about little Lily. Her mom said that the first few days were kind of ruff on her but that after two or three days she started to feel a bit fitter, and was getting better and better every day. Lily’s mom said that if it stayed nice out this weekend she would bring her over so we could play together for a bit. See Lily does not like the fact that her sister, my girlfriend Daisy, moved out with her mother to their new house. I can not say that I was to found of the idea either because now I only get to see Daisy every few months or so instead of almost every day like before; however I am being a benevolent gentle-doggie and am trying my best to take care of Daisy’s little sister for her, and subsequently Lily and I have become closer since Daisy departed.

So yesterday after mom took me to Pet-Co to have my heartworm test done and get my yearly supply of heartworm chewy so I wouldn’t run out. And yes, you heard me right; those sneaky, sneaky, people hid a vet there at the store too. What is the world coming too when you cannot even go to your favorite rawhide bar to get a little takeout for a sick friend without first being deceived by mother. I am sure I will be discussing this later on in life someday, as I am sprawling on the cough at my Doggie Shrink’s office. “So tell me Doggie, how did it make you feel when the Vet jump out of the rawhide bar at you”? Anyways, back to my story… Mom said I was a great little doggie during the whole tribulation, because I didn’t let out one bark the whole time we were inline and we had to wait over an hour and a half to get to the torcher camber. Guess what was inline two dogs ahead of us? One of those infamous Min-Pin’s that mom had before I adopted her. This one was only a baby, about 9 months old so she was still very good-natured, and I thought she was innocent enough looking for all the war stories I get about Pretty Pran. However mom and her owner did share a knowing look when Mom mentioned that Min-Pins were a little too smart, what ever that means. And two dogs behind me their was a scared Pit Bull that wouldn’t stop winning the hole time she was in line. Mom said the bigger the dog the bigger the baby they are. Finally I heard them call my name to see the Vet, and Mom and the vet tech held me while the vet drew blood for my test. He had a hard time finding one of my little veins, so it took awhile before he could draw the blood, but I took it like a Big Boy, and did not have to be muzzled cause I did not even tried to bite anyone. I know I love my heartworm chews, but if I had remembered what I had to go through, I would have gladly given them up.

Oh yea, back on subject, I picked out some fine cookies for my play date with Lily. I got us yummy teddy cookies, some bright vibrant flowers and biscotti for her and me to share together. It was all I could do to keep my paws out of the bag, and not eat them all. Now I just have to get after mom to get the yard ready so she doesn’t hurt herself while we are playing outside. Come to think of it think I will go jump on her legs to remind her.....



Now if I just put on my cutest “Doggie Face”

Boy was yesterday a beautiful day here! Norna and Grumppa were outside yesterday, working on our cars, so I got to hang out in my dog enclosure for a couple hours. Boy did it feel good to roll around in the grass, and snooze with my chum, Ray, face to face on the porch for a bit. It looks like mom has been doing a bit of work in my corral, and she still plans on extending it a little so we would have room for Jayden to hang out with us this summer. Oh boy it’s going to be so much fun, and I know that the new addition is going to rock. Now if I just put on my cutest “Doggie Face” maybe I can talk her into a sandbox instead of a pool, then I would be a happy dog.
I did get a might curious when Mom pulled some funny looking contraption out of the garage though: so I am going to have to keep a close eye on that for a bit. I will let you know what transforms with that gadget. I’ve got to run diary, I just heard the trucks working on our road again and it’s time for me to do my civic duty to secure and defend my kitchen window.


Finally got to see Lily today...

I tell you, New England has no sense of humor at all. I recognized I went too far with that post that spring has finally come to New England; but I clearly said “ALMOST”! Today is nice enough nevertheless yesterday was a wet drizzly mess, which threw a hitch in any outdoor plans. At least the torrent rain kept those boisterous yellow dinosaurs away from our place and I could catch a nice, long-drawn-out nap without being disrupted. It enabled me to awake reinvigorated and put 110% into my grrr, good thing too, since Grumppa came back to the ranch at a fairly decent hour for a change. So I was honored with a full grrr session in the bedroom with Grumps, just us boys you know. Mom calls it my Grumppa time, then mumbles something under her breath about it being a boy thing.

Moms, who can figure them! Talking about mom’s that reminds me why I am writing today diary, we finally got to see Lily today. Mom and I were just starting a walk when we saw her mom, Pam in their yard. She brought Lily down so I could give her some kisses, sniffs and tail wags; and I was very happy to see her doing so well. She is such a pretty little dog that once her stiches heal she will be a thing of beauty once again, even with only one eye. She seemed a lot happier than she had been before the operation too, so we were glad for her. Mom said we could break into the flower cookies next time we frolic together. Maybe we can invite her sister Daisy as well, just to be polite of course!

Well I have to run along now dairy, mom’s making suga and I want to make sure that I get suga-flavored kibble tonight. I’ve been a really good boy today, and didn’t even put up a fight when mom vacuumed me today. Mom tells me it cuts out the middleman to simply vacuum me instead of the furnishings, just what we needed around here another unemployed worker…


Big Boys can’t multi-task!

Thank Dog its Friday, and it looks like it is going to be a really nice day outside too! Yes, you have to love it when you can get a sunny spring day, with a bit of luck the rowdy beast outside will keep there hullabaloo to a minimum so I can spend some quality time with my window till boy gets out of school. He’s going over his favorite cousin’s house after school and I am hoping that I can go for the ride with them. In any case I think it’s time to go plot my Doggie scheme for the afternoon in my window and observe the street at the same time. Who said Big Boys can’t multi-task!


I could use a little workout

Good Morning Diary, it’s another beautiful start to our morning here in New England. Mom just got a phone call and that means that my grand-girl Jayden, is coming over to our house for a sleep over, and I cannot wait. We haven’t seen her in a couple of weekends, and I could use a little workout from chasing her throughout the house. See, I am trying to get back into bandana shape for our summer treks to the beach, have got to stay in shape for the girls you know. Speaking of workouts, I’ve got to run and do a few limbering up stretches before she gets here, I have to stay in top shape for our slumber party, no way I am going to let the pintsized lassie get the best of me!



I made the Dogster Daily Diary Pick today!

Wow, Mom just told me I made the Dogster Daily Diary Pick today! I really didn’t believe her at first and I had to hop on Dogster and check it out for myself, however she was right, there I was, in the middle row. You could have knocked me over with a chew toy, I tell you. Now, I am not much for speeches; but I would like to thank all of my wonderful readers for making this possible, and it’s nice to know that so many people read about my adventures here at my forever home. Hopefully it will help show people how wonderful a used dog can be, and they will think more positively on adopting an older shelter dog as opposed to a puppy. Ask my mom and she will tell you that you can never match the magnitude of love and devolution that you receive form a secondhand dog.

Thanks again everyone, and I hope that you will keep checking back to read the epic escapades of little old me, Colin Doggie.


You wouldn’t have a good Rabbit Stew recipe would you- diary?

I tell you diary, I am not sure how much more I can take from those noisy beast outside. It was bad enough when they were working at the end of the road, but now they are right in front of my abode and the whole place trembles and shakes all day while they are laboring out there. I hope that they finish soon so I can get back into my usual routine around here, because struggling to survive on a mere 12 hours of sleep a day is not cutting it at all. How am I going to concentrate on my grrring if I am not totally revitalized? Grump so looks forward to our grrr sessions that I would so hate to disappoint him. Also, tomorrow my god-boy is coming over and I need to be on the top of my game so I can keep that boy in line around here. It’s not easy being Colin Doggie let me tell you!

Speaking of visitors, have you heard of this bloke called Peter Rabbit? I heard mom tell Grumps last night that he was coming this Sunday. I mean first she lets that old fat cookie bandit wearing the red suit in the house, and now she is going to allow a peculiar creature to hop on through her house. Good think I am up to date on my vaccinations, because god knows what I could catch off him. I keep telling her to get another lock for the door but she won’t listen to me, and someday she will be sorry.

You wouldn’t have a good Rabbit Stew recipe would you diary? Oh well, that’s all till next time diary.


Doggie being deprived of a beautiful spring days.

Okay I am starting to think that they will never finish up working on the road by my house. The sun decided to grace us with its presence this morning and I was hoping we could go outside and toil on my enclosure to get it spruced up for spring; but mom said it was way to dusty and noisy in the street for us to hang around outside. She opened up my bedroom window, but it is not as delightful as the real thing. I wonder if it would help if I write my local officials and complain about all the deafening commotion. I bet it wouldn’t take that long if it was his Doggie being deprived of a beautiful spring days. Why I haven’t even taken a walk in days because of the giant cavities their making out there. Good thing my god-boy was over so I could at least take my mind of it by chasing him till he squealed; now that’s a clatter that I can listen to over and over and over. I wonder if I could get a copy on cd so we could listen to it on long rides in the car on Mom’s stereo. Think I will go ask her.
