Did ya know it's my birthday

Hey Diary?

Did ya remember that my birthday is tomorrow? Yep, I am going to be an old Doggie of six, who woulda thought that five years would go by so quickly. Why it seems like it was only yesterday when I first came to make my mother acquaintance at the Taunton Animal Shelter. Looking back, I can say that I was really shy and timid, having been adopted out once only to be returned the very next day. So I didn't have high hopes she would return especially cause I nipped at mom fingers,justs a little, but she did come back the following day to introduce me to her boy, and take a stroll with them. I must have passed the test cause they came back later that day, and of we rode in car to my new forever home. I remember that Grump was just returning home from work as they pulled up with me in tow. Mom introduced me to Grumps as his shrunken border collie. She must have had ESP cause hearding people by nipping at their heals was one of my specialties.
That was the first of many things that mom labeled as a bad habit and started working to put an end to them. That women has no idea of what is endless fun to a young doggie, vause most of my favorite things were on that dumb list of hers, like no eating tissues, even the really yummy used ones, no stealing food off plates even when it's doggie height, and no running off with grandbabies toys till the whole family cased you around the house to retrieve it. Yep the more fun it was the quicker it made the list. Looking back on it now it doesn't seem like much to give up to have a family to watch over.

And did ya remember the pup cakes with pup-peroni chips in them with a peanut butter glaze over them that mom bakes just for me and my puppy friends. Why just the smell of them cooking is almost as good as the pup cakes, almost as good! Yep it's going to be a good week to be the Doggie.

Wow diary,

The 5th annual Paws-a-itively Purr-fect day the best one ever. And there have been some really good ones too. Like the first one mom and I went to, where I introduced mom to my Auntie Nadine for the first time. Mom told me later that she knew she had to be Auntie Nadine cause I dragged mommy to her so I could lavish her in Doggie kisses. Then, the next year we attended I saw my other Auntie and met my new friend Baily, then, the following year the dogs from my old dog club started going to do Canine Good Citizen testing, so we hung out the whole day together. But as wonderful as they all were none of them compares to this years! But let me start at the very beginning of the day.

See mom had been telling me for days we were going and both of us were excited about it coming up. Mom had been making me brush up on all my Doggie manners, but I didn't think much about that caus mom likes me to behave very good in public so we can show everyone how great us used doggies really are. So the morning of the big day finally got here, and I got really anxious when she started packing the car, you know afraid she would leave without me. But not mom, she packed me and my bag too at last. After strapping me into my car seat we were off to the benefit.

I spotted my old friend Fly and his person Ann first, and later our friends Bruschi, his sister the yellow lab, and cousin Brady and their person Linda. And Goliath, with Gloria along with Tyler and Jodie, just like old school days but even better because we had no lessons to interfere with our socializing, sniffing and humping. I ran into my friend Bailey and he had his brother Copper with my auntie, and at last my Auntie Nadine showed up so I could shower her in Doggie kisses. Enough to last me till next year. Yep, it was a wonder day, sunny with a nice breeze to cool us pups and people off nicely. Then near the end of the day mom surprised me by having me take my Canine Good Citizen test. And do you know what, I passed the test with flying colors. Mom was so proud of little old Colin Doggie. Then to celebrate mom and I and Gloria and Goliath, went to our favorite Ice Place. Yum, bubble gum ice cream for the Doggie.

Yes by far it was the best benefit yet. Life's good when your the Doggie!

Till next time,
Colin Doggie CGC

Hey Diary,
Wow, can’t believe it’s been another year and that it’s time for The 5TH ANNUAL PAWS-ITIVELY PURR-FECT DAY on SUN, JUNE 9th from 10AM - 3PM at BOYDEN REFUGE, 1298 COHANNET ST,TAUNTON, MA. Here’s a link to the shelter’s website if you want more info. http://www.petfinder.com/shelters/MA72.html

It’s put on by The Friends of the Taunton Animal Care Facility, so please, if you live near by PLEASE MAKE A NOTE OF THE DATE AND STOP BY TO SUPPORT THEM!

The Mom said that she may have me tested for my Caine Good Citizen this year, whatever that is. I just hope it doesn’t hurt like a rabies or heartworm and Lyme, yuck. For me as always the best part of the whole day is that I get to see my Aunty Nadine again and give her Doggie kisses in person again.

Bark at ya later
Doggie

 

Wow diary, You would not believe the year I've had. ( part- one)

It started back in January and it happened so fast that I wasn't even close to ready for everything that went on. But let me start at the beginning for ya. I had an idea something was up when I overheard Norna and Grump talking about who was going to take me. Well this got my ears tuned in, take me where and with who I ask ya? Then I saw Norn take out the dreaded suitcases, now these things I remember because last time they came out I was stuck at my kissing cousin Drew’s for two weeks while they went away. And I noticed there was a new strange looking suitcase with them. Guess what, in that strange looking one I kept finding treats, and Norna kept throwing all my chews in there. So every once in awhile I kept checking it out, because it was pretty nice inside all pimped out with my favorite blankies and all. Then one night mom packed this thing up and took me and it for a ride to my Aunty Laura's house. At first I didn't recognize the place cause she moved, but once I spotted her dog and kitties I knew whose pad it was. Now while I was looking around I noticed this tiny kitty in a cage. I thought to myself it must be really wild if they have to keep it locked up. Laura called it Moose the gunnies pig, but you can't fool me, though it did smell a little strange. And then it happened, I stuck my nose in the cage for like five minutes and I heard the door open and close. So as I look to see who entered I noticed Norna was gone. Without as much as a pat on the head or a peck on the cheek mind ya. Now don't get me wrong I had a lot of fun at Aunty Laura's and she must have though that I looked a little on the skinny side cause she gave me a whole can of mighty dog every morning instead of just a third like Norna. And I could case those kitties all day and night and never get tired of that game, and having another dog around all day while the people are at work is nice. However I still checked that door a hundred and one times till Norn came back for me. I knew she would but I have to admit to wondering now and then. Then once she came back I hopped into her arm and held on for dear life. There was no way she was sneaking out again on me. I was the happiest doggie in the world that night when I went home with her and Grump, and thank dog she put those dreaded suitcases back in the closet. That reminds me I really need to find a way to lock that thing so I don't go threw that again.

It took awhile for me to settle back in again, and Grump keeps telling Norna that I am broken because I don't grrr him anymore. I guess I'm still trying to get back into the swing of things around here. Heck it took me a couple of days before I even starting scattering my chews around the house. Norna did leave that funny looking one out for me and when I kept looking at it she explained to me that it was a doggie pet carrier that she bought for me. She told me that if I can get use to it that she would take me on the next trip to some place called Florida that she went. I knew she’d miss me. Once you have had some doggie loves it's hard to go without it.......

 

Can you believe it Diary?

My crazy mother made me take a tubby last night. And now to add insult to injury, she keeps telling me how nice I smell. I smell like a girlie-girl, all flowery scent, no stink grass, or fire-hydrant musk, or died vermin roll over. All the boy doggies are going to laugh at me. I tell ya this woman just doesn’t get it at all.

And I keep overhearing her talking about some vacation she and Grumppa are taking. Where am I suppose to go I ask you? I want to go and see the grandbabies as well. She better start answering some question for me fast. I telling you I won’t stand for all this nonsense going on. I am going to put a paw down around her.

I so upset, I am going to go take out some anger on my new gerr.

Bark at ya later

Guess what Diary

Guess what Diary?

Mom and I got to go on an adventure yesterday. See mom felt bad for me because we don’t get out much anymore, and buy we I think see means me the doggie because her and Grumppa get out just fine during the week without me, but back to my tail. Bol

I heard her tell grump that she was taking me to that Fall River place that she goes to all the time to work. First stop was Kennedy Park to do some shopping at the farmers market there. Boy was there some great wonderful aromas there for a Doggie. What can I say; I’m so short that I can’t resist smelling everything I walk by. And do you know what diary? In the Riv there are so many tiny dogs that I don’t even feel that short at all there. WE came across a lot of them while I helped mom complete her shopping. She got some great deals there on vegetable, and some potted herbs for her garden; so many in fact that she bought us some cut flowers for our kitchen.

After completing our shop, ma and I drove to battleship Cove so I could see the ships there and walk the boardwalk with ma. More great smells, but it was hot by then so we saved walking the whole thing for a cooler day, and drove to Bicentennial Park to see the Iwo Jima monument there and watch a few small boats take off.

From there we shot over the bridge to look for a Doggie friendly beach, to no avail. Boy can I see well from my new car seat, but to tell you the truth, I was asleep pretty quick on the way back home.

Then to top off the day, mom made rice to go under the vegetable goulash that she made for her and grumps. But that meant warm rice over a fresh can of kibble. Yummy stick to your ribs grub, I tell ya. You know what Diary, some days it just pays to be the Doggie.

Did you know that my birthday is coming up?

Hey Diary,

Did you know that my birthday is coming up? It’s in only a few short days, and boy am I ever excited about it. You must know what birthday’s means? No, not the present, however I really need a new Mr. Noodle. Yes I know I just got a new one but he was a wimp. Mom said I set a new record for destroying one, he only survived two days, and a dog would think his mother would be happy about me setting a amazing record; but she did not look happy at all, let me tell you. I sure hope the next one puts up a much worthier fight.

It’s those wonderful birthday pupcakes that mom makes for me every year. This year she is going to make Pup-Peroni chip pupcakes, with the peanut butter and honey glazing. I not sure which is better the aroma of them baking, the look of them with the mouth watering bits of the chips, or the wonderful taste of the pupcake itself. But even the very best part about a pupcake is of course that they are just for Doggie’s, not Grumppa, or mom or boy or girl, just us doggies. They can’t say that terrible, dreadful words that we all fear “no its people food not for doggies” for once it’s in the right order “no it’s doggies food not for people”. Justice at last for us dogs.

Soon to be
The Birthday Doggie

 

What a wonderful day it was last Sunday

Wow Diary,

What a wonderful day it was last Sunday at the 4TH ANNUAL PAWS-ITIVELY PURR-FECT DAY at the BOYDEN REFUGE, held to benefit the Taunton Animal Shelter. It was such a beautiful day all around. This year I even had my old dog club members there so I got to hang out all day with some doggie school mates. One of the members is certified to test for CGC so we were raising money for the shelter mom adopted me from. Mom said I was a very good boy this year, and that I help show people how extraordinary we recycled doggies really are.

I was happy that my beagle chum Bailey was there from last year with his brother. They got adopted by my Auntie Cheryl, and I got to play with him and curl up on my Auntie lap so she’d know I remembered all the walks we took together while I was at the shelter.

My grand girl Jayden even went with us this year, as well. And this was the first year the Sun was out all day. Mom even let me roll around in the grass, and apply a little doggie perfume to attract the girl doggies, and boy were there some lookers there; big and bully, long and lean, and petite and dainty. Not to mention all the kisses I got to give to all the little girls, plus ladies and I used my Doggie charisma on all of them. They were putty in my paw once they fell under my Doggie spell.

It was such a great day all around and I was such a good boy that mom is taking me to Pet Co to get a new Mr. Noddle. What happen to the old Mr. Noodle, (may he RIP) is an entry for another day.

Got to run so I will BAYL
