Things are starting to get back to normal around here

Things are starting to get back to normal around here, and it about time too. I love when our grandbabies come to visit but it really takes a toll on our life. It seem like it was non stop for at least three weeks around here. Now I 'm all for a fast pace, but most of the time I got stuck home all alone for most of the day while mom and boy were off with the other grandbabies. Mom keep telling me that she was going places Doggies were not aloud, but I not sure I buying that excuse. You tell me how I suppose to believe Doggies' are not aloud at the zoo. What are they looking at, pictures of animals? I think not. And why go out to eat when you can cook at home were your Doggies around to help clean up any spillage. Having a warm meal is highly over rated when you have your dog's feelings to worry about!
But that's over now because they all flew back to Germany and it's just us again. I must say things are a bit quiet around here but I'm sure we will get use to it again. I been trying to keep mom busy so she doesn't think about the kids being gone. Like yesterday we took a walk with boy to the library to pick up a book for him. Mom was going to drive but Grumppa dropped the walk word out, so mom felt bad and made boy walk with us so I could go. Mom did not even get mad about it even though we had all ready taken a walk that day.
I am hoping to get a lot more walks around here because Mom broke down and bought one of those square monster for the bathroom. I heard her yelling at it earlier today. Something about it must be wrong and there is no way she weights that much. Yea more walks for Doggie. It's good to be the workout buddy. You should have seen the look on her face when I hopped on her stomach when she was doing her work out. She said something out jumping on her head was not helping but she was laughing too hard for me to believe her. Isn't yoga suppose to be done with dogs? Why not, they call it the downward dog.
Till next time dairy...


Why did it have to get so warm today!

Mom had to close all the windows today so she could put the AC's on again. I hate it when she has to do that; because I can not peek out my window and monitor the neighborhood. We were going to go to Borderland State Park after she got out of work, but she told me it was too muggy for that too. I don't get it, I was not complaining and I am the one that has to be in the fur coat all the time not her. Oh yea, sure, I got to grrr Grumppa's feet when he got home and had a play session with Mr. Noodle; but it's not the same. I have not been any where good for over a week and if this keeps up I am going to go on strike. She'll be miserable when I stop giving her Doggie kisses, or paw. And wait till I make her guard the house herself. Yep she'll be sorrowful then.


Did I tell you how much fun Monday was….

Hi everyone it's me Colin Doggie again. Did I tell you how much fun Monday was here playing with the Grandbabies? They have gotten a lot bigger since I last grrr their feet. The youngest boy did not seem real happy to see me, I think he must have been sick because he was delirious or something. He keep crying about how he did not want to come into my house cause of some mean dog, so I keep looking around to chase this dog away for him, but the only dog here was me Colin Doggie, and I know he could not mean me! It did not take him long before he started feeling better and I had him under my Doggie spell, and I heard him tell Mom how I was a good doggie.

All of the Grandbabies have gotten a lot more nimble since we last saw them too; I had a heck of a time chasing them around the house. We all had a lot of fun frolicking together, not to mention the vittles. Boy can my Mom mix up some cuisine because the Ravioli kibble was simply superb. Both the young boy and I did not last long after the ravioli's, something about having a full girth that put us boys’ right to sleep! Can not wait till they come over again to clown around with us. I love my big boy but being a pre teen we do not play around as much as we use too. Once and a while he let me drag him on the skateboard but that's about it. Maybe I can get Mom to rent me a little boy or girl when the grandbabies return to Germany so I can get a little more exercise in. I will have to run the idea by her and see what she thinks.

Will have to see how I make out with that. Goodbye till next time.


Keeping my paws crossed!

Today should be a busy day, because mom said my grandbabies are coming over for a visit. Mom is going to set up my pool for the kids, not me thank God, cause it's like an outside tubby. What would my girlfriends from up the street say if they saw that, I ask you. I would never here the end of it. And she is setting up my sandbox too so I can dig with the babies. Then we are all having homemade ravies, well I hope I am having home made ravies. She said she made them for the family and I am family aren't I. I'm going to keep my paws crossed. I will yet you know how I make out.


I have the best mommy!

I have the best mommy. Yesterday she had to have her car worked on and I was afraid that she would be gone all day but she was not; she made sure she made the appointment early enough so we could take our walk at Borderland. It was a good thing too because we ran into a lot of my doggie friends there.
Like my friend Tye from school who is getting a little brother next week. His mom told us about it while she was rubbing my belly. It's going to be an adopted dog like me but he is coming from down south, can not wait to meet him. A boy can not have too many doggie friends you know.
Then I spotted the fish herding Boarder again, only yesterday he was playing that dumb fetch game. He must have been humoring his person. We have to do stuff like that for them once and a while. I watched for a bit and then we got down to so serious play bows and romping. While I was playing with him, mom spotted her daughter Ianne and my girl Jayden, she lives right next to the park. (The new picture on my blog is Jay and me.) I was so happy to see her that I got right into covering her face with my wonderful doggies kisses, afterward I introduced her to my Border buddy, because she is a dog lover in training you know.
After that we wandered the rest of the park together. Mom invited them over Monday because our other grandbabies are coming over. I can not wait; it has been a long time since I have seen them. Mom say's we have our work cut out for us because my youngest grandson Brad is afraid of dogs and it is my job to win him over. Mom knows if any doggie can do it is me. I will let you all know how we make out.
So after we said goodbye to the girls it was of to the car for the ride home. I was so tired from my long day at the park that I hardly looked out the window before I fell asleep in my car seat, dreaming of the good life at my forever home.
Till next time dairy.

That's not fair.
Today is suppose to be my fun day walk with mom and now I find out she has to go have her car worked on. How am I suppose to have fun hanging around the house with Grumppa? I will not even grrr feet when mommy's not here, because I am too upset. Thank God, it's nice enough to have shut off the AC's , at lease I can sit in my window and wait for her return.

Hurry back to me mom!!!


At Last My Friend MR. Noodle's Dayveiw!

Have I ever told you about my best friend Mr. Noodle? He was the first toy Mom and boy ever bought for me at my forever home. I remember that day well because mom introduced me to the wonders of the "Pet Store". Oh what a wonderful place this is, with every toy a doggie could imagine and they have this wonderful salad bar of treats put out, though mom will not let me eat them there, she says that she has to buy them first, whatever that means. And all the girl fawn over me because I put them under my magical doggie spell and nobody can resist me when I turn on my charms.
Opps I got sidetracked there, back to Noodle. Now this is not my first Mr. Noodle, I would have to guess he is about my third; because I bestow so much love on him that he kind of wears out. Mom won’t let me play with him when he starts throwing up stuffing, and I always pout when I am without my friend, so mom replaces him right away. I have other toys but none is as dear as Noodle to me. He sleeps with me all day while mom is working, and helps me beet up Grumppa when he is sleeping on the couch and I want to play. I know if I drop Noodle on Grump's head enough times he will wake up and grrr with us. I have even broken down and played fetch with Noodle to amuse my people: they seem to get a kick out of me running around the house with Noodle in my mouth. Humans can be funny some times. Maybe someday mom can snap a picture of me running and jumping with Noodle for you so you can see how athletic I am. But for now just be sure to watch the new movie: Doggie and Noodle.
Till next time fans, your favorite used dog


A day at my favorite walking spot.

Oh boy what a day I had today with Mom. It was Saturday and since boy was still at his sleepover we got to leave earlier than normal for our fun day walk. Today’s destination was our very favorite place, Borderland State Park. I don’t know if any of you dogs have ever been lucky enough to visit there but I think it is really impressive. There are all these really great trails through the woods, so it is nice and shady, it has a couple of ponds that the dogs can go swimming in, and a several good fields were you could play Frisbee with your person or just chase a couple of birds to keep them on there toes (or is it wings).And there are always tons of really cool dogs there with there people. Mom says the dogs are all exceptional because their people take them out to places like Borderland, not like the poor dogs that never get to leave their yards. I know a few poor dogs like that and they seem really unhappy, barking all the time and stuff. Good thing mom adopted me and not somebody like that!

But anyways, like I was saying about the noteworthy dogs I meet there. Last weekend I spotted a boarder collie that showed me a new trick. It was really hot so I hopped in one of the ponds to join him. And what do you think this Boarder collie was doing? He was herding fish! His person was a little surprised about it but it made perfect sense to Mom and me. I mean, what else would a Boarder do with fish. Today while we stopped at another one of the pond I met three grand dogs that were fetching a sick for one of their persons. I manly just got my feet wet and watch because I figure if the person was dumb enough to keep throwing the sick back out into the pond he did not deserve it back. Frankly I never got that fetch thing at all. The people seem nice enough though and they had good taste because they fell in love with my breathtaking looks, and cool name. I let them oh and awl over me while I dipped my feet to cool off. I did not dare go for a real swim living since I live with the bath crazy lady and all.

Before we left for home some incredibly friendly women took a photograph of mom and me for us that I will post later, along with a movie of our wonderful adventure today. Well, I am getting a little drowsy after our three mile tramp today. That’s a lot of steps for a diminutive chi mix like me so I’m off to catch a few zzzs and dream about my magnificent life at my forever home.


No not again Mommy

Hi everyone it's me Doggie again. I am trying to remember to be a more zealous poster to my diary here on Dogster: so since I was hanging around home killing time I thought I would jot down a diary entry. Things are a little quiet around here tonight. I was watching my boy all day long for mommy while she was at work, but now he's off at his friend’s house for an overnight. My boy is getting big now, almost thirteen and he has the attitude to prove it. Mommy is always saying how glad she is that I am past my terrible teen years, being an adult dog of three now, because she could not handle two teenagers in the same house. Now I am not that old that I don’t still like grring Grumppa’s feet every night when he comes home, but I am sure I will never outgrow playing that game with him. Grumppa is still at work right now and it is Friday so he will go out after work and have a couple of beers with his friends when he gets done so it will be awhile before I can grrr his feet.
It's always nice and tranquil when it's just mom and I. It would have been a perfect night if it wasn’t for the bath she made me take. Yes I know I just had one, and I most differently told her that again and again while she was getting the stuff ready. It is an on going battle with her and me, right now she is ahead but someday I will win. Like a couple of days ago she gave me the last Bath even though it had hardly been a month since my last bath. Then yesterday she was outside cooking out on the grill, and getting the yard set for when our grandbabies come for a visit at the end of the month, with me in my pen enjoying some fresh air. I decided to put on a little doggie colon to impress my girlfriends up the street when I saw her come check out what I was rolling in. She gets real funny about what I wear for cologne; I don’t know why, maybe she has allergies or something. All of a sudden I hear Doggie Leave it, Code for stop whatever I’m doing, and she runs to pick me up. At first I thought she just wanted a better sniff of my macho new scent, but then she grabbed the dead bird I was rolling over and threw it out of my pen. She really has no taste in toilet water: like no dead bird scent, no poison ivy scent, no trash sent, no stink grass, the list goes on and on. And now no dead bird with bugs on it, how am I going to get girlfriends smelling so clean. Oh well I guess you have to take the bad with the good. Speaking of good, she just cooked me a wonder mallow bone with just a pinch of garlic, just the way I like it. Now that I think of it I believe I will be off to gobble my bone, have to keep up my strength for Grumppa feet later. Maybe I can swivel around over it first.


The things I do to be a star!

I know I haven't written in a while but things have been crazy around here this summer. Mommy just got a new camera so she promised me she would start taking more pictures of me for all my loyal fans out there. She has a couple of movies she is working on. This first one I did not want to star in but I guess I had to. The show must go on and all that. It should be up soon, so we hope you all enjoyed new the movie.
