I'm A Real Dog - Really I Am

July 13th 2013 8:12 pm

Big excitement today. My Aunt Chrissy and Uncle Mike stopped in for a brief visit on their way to a funeral. So they didn't get to stay long. I love visitors but I have this habit of jumping up on their legs to say hi because I get so excited and I don't want them to have to bend down to see me. So Mom gave everyone a towel as they had shorts on. Uncle Mike just had knee surgery so he was off limits. But alas no one really had time to snuggle with me because it was a short visit. I was very sad.

Then my favorite Uncle Jesse came over and he always loves me. He tried to pick me up again, silly man. I get squirmy, all 26 pounds of me. Things were going great and I was happy again and then he said I wasn't a real dog. My feelings were hurt. He and Aunt Robbie always say that about Quigley and me. They think if you're under 50 pounds and short you're not a real dog. They like BIG dogs. Mom hates when they say that. So after everyone left Mom gave me a nice long backrub. I needed that. In the next life I hope they come back as Yorkies.

Mom and Grandma love me for me not how big I am so that makes me happy. Mom says if we were as big as Uncle Jesse's dogs we wouldn't be able to sleep on the bed with her. Now that would make me really sad. Mom says her favorite part of the day is when all 3 of us snuggle at night.

 

Life with the Doorknob

The "doorknob" (aka my little brother Quigley) can be a handful at times. He's so boisterous. And he's always hogging Mom. When Mom and I are having a little girl time there he is with that stupid ball. I've been asking myself for four years now "Wasn't I enough Mom, did I really need a little brother?" But Mom reminds me that even though I arrived first, he was already on his way (breeder kept him for 6 more weeks). Then Mom tried to pass him off as my Christmas present. What the heck Mom, I think I got cheated.

But I will say that he's okay to snuggle with on cold mornings and he does need me. So I'll hang in there and take one for the team.

But remember Mom and I can't stress this enough. ONE QUIGLEY IS ENOUGH. I can only be so tolerant. But no worries, I think Mom wouldn't be able to handle another Quigley either.

On with the day. Have fun my friends.

 

Oops!

I guess I was so sorry about getting caught at counter surfing yesterday I got confused and put my diary entry on Quigley's page yesterday. Well the little doorknob told me about that. I have fixed it.

Or did I intentionally do that to thwart him so they would think he was a girl. I'll never tell.

Well we are sending Mom back to work after a 4 day weekend. Finally able to catch up on my beauty rest.

The best news is that Mom only has to work 3 days and then she has a 3 day weekend. And the best part is that Aunt Chrissy is coming for a sleepover this weekend.

Bad news is that Mom says we have to have baths. Yeesh!

Have a great week my friends.

 

I've Been A Bad Girl

Mommy was not too happy with me today. She was watching the news on the kitchen TV. When she does that she puts the stool by the counter. Then she went downstairs to put a load of clothes in the washer. When she came back there I was standing on the kitchen counter. I had jumped up on the stool and then on to the counter. I told Mom I thought I smelled a crumb up there and wanted to help her clean the counter. Mom was not buying it. So I was scolded and I did my laying on my back with my feet up trying to look sorry posture. Mom said I had to have a time out. So I was banished to the office with the gate up for 30 minutes.

Not as terrible as it sounds, Mom's bed is there and I stretched out on that. But I did try to look like I was sorry.

Quigley was loving it. He had the rest of the house to himself.

We found out earlier today that the little doorknob is "Dog of the Week". Of course I was jealous but happy for the little guy. He told me that if I was a good dog like him maybe someday I would get that honor too. The gall of him. I'm not always a bad girl.

So now Mom is making sure she puts the stool away. She knows how dangerous it is if I was too jump down from the counter.

So I will try to curb my stool jumping and be a good girl.

 

Swept off My Feet

We had the best Mother's Day ever. We gave Mom lots of hugs and kisses and even let her sleep in late.

Grandma spent the whole day with us and our Aunt Robbie and Nichole came over and my Uncle Jesse too. I love Uncle Jesse. I am not a dog that you pick up but I always make an exception for my Uncle Jesse. He picked me up in one powerful swoop and then told me how beautiful I was. Does life get any better. I was smitten. Well after that I followed him around the whole afternoon.

Mom can't figure out why the air is so blue tonight. Because we are on a restricted diet we only eat our kibble. Boring but we like it. So why Quigley and I are so stinky tonight is a mystery.

Oh I'm in heaven. Mom went to a garage sale on Saturday and bought ME (not you Quiqley) a wicker love seat with cushion and matching pillows for the back porch. Just my size. The little doorknob (Quigley) has stretched out on it a couple of times. I will have to have a chat with that young man.

So, it was a fantastic weekend.

 

Mom's Playing Favorites

I can't believe it. Mom took that little doorknob Quigley on an adventure and I had to stay home.

Although I have to say it was heaven to be able to sleep for a couple of hours uninterrupted and have the house to myself.

I was hoping she took him to the vet, but NOOOOOOOOO! When he came back he told me all about his fun afternoon with all the Boston pups.

Mom gave me a hug and explained that because I'm not dog friendly she couldn't take me. Rats. But she is right. I like my brother but because of my background Mom's never sure how I'll react with other dogs.

At least Quigley brought back smells for me.

The best part is that soon the little doorknob will conk out and I'll have Mom all to myself for the rest of the night.

I can live with that, but Mom better give me one of her amazing backrubs, then I'll forgive her.

 

Doc Put Me on a Diet - Not Happy

February 12th 2013 11:33 am

Mom took me to the Vet for my 8 week B12 shot. Mom was praising me because I lost almost a pound. The Doc and his nurse were mean to Mom and more or less said if she loved me she would cut down on my food once again. It made Mom feel horrible and of course I knew this was bad news for me. So now I have to survive on a cup and a half of food a day. I'm so hungry and I let Mom know it all the time. She's very sad that she has to follow the doc's orders. I eat hyperallergenic food and Mom doesn't think it is lo cal and my B12 shot makes me hungry as well.

I'm a big boned Boston Terrier and I have gained some weight over the last couple of years. I was at 29.8 last week. I know I should be at 25 but it's very difficult.

Mom is no spring chicken and she has bad knees so we don't go for walks but the little doorknob (Quigley) keeps me active. We have a big backyard and hang out there when the snow stays away.

So Mom says we are all going on this diet together to support me. Me, her and the doorknob. We're all shooting for 5 pounds. I hope we'll survive.

 

Dogster Rocks - I'm Dog of theDay

Wow, Mom just got an email from Dogster and found out they picked little old me for "Dog of the Day". What an honor. My face is on the Dogster community page all day and they gave me 25 zealies. What fun. The little doorknob is so happy for me. Sometimes I can't figure that boy out.

So thank you Dogster for making my day. Mom just might have to give me a treat today for the honor.

Oops gotta run, breakfast is waiting. Nothing usually interferes with my breakfast but I got so excited this morning I just had to tell my friends.

 

Oh The Indignity

So yesterday Mom put on my harness and we left the doorknob (Quigley) at home and went for an adventure. I had high hopes we were going on an amazing adventure but no, Mom took me to the vet for my 8 week B12 shot. Then I had a pedicure and unfortunately a butt squeeze, how embarassing. But on the upside I did get to smell and growl at another dog underneath the door to my room. That was fun.

Then we walked around Petsmart for a bit to take in some more smells. Mom apologized for not taking me for a walk afterward but it was too dark. Mom promises she'll get me an earlier appointment next time so we can go the park afterward.

I did lose 2 pounds so Mom was very proud of me.

Mom is always fair so today the little doorknob gets to go on an adventure. Don't tell him - it's for a toe trim.l

I will enjoy my alone time and get in some beauty sleep.

 

He's a Doorknob But He's My Doorknob

My brother Quigley always surprises me. Yesterday he sent me an emerald for my page and said nice things about me. Can't figure that guy out. Some days he can be a real doorknob.

Mom was out and about yesterday and ran into a lady that knows Boston Terriers. Mom had broken the top part of her zipper that makes it slide so had put a keychain holder on it so it would still work. This keychain has a spot for a photo on it. And does she put my lovely face on it. No, she puts the little doorknob on it. What the heck is going on Mom? Am I chopped liver. (Ooh that sounds good). Well anyway the lady saw his photo and asked about him. Mom told her he was 4, and was still like an energizer bunny. She said in her experience Bostons are in that crazy puppy stage until they're 6,especially boys. OMD! Mom I told you to get me a sister not a brother. Mom had better be really nice to me if I have to put up with another 2 years of this insanity.

Update on klutzy Mom's foot. Thankfully she hasn't stubbed her toes this morning. Only part of her toe turned black and blue and part of her foot is that pretty red shade so she thinks she sprained the ball of her foot below the toes as well. But the good news is that she's hobbling around a whole lot better. Mom's philosophy is what kills us makes us strong, so she put her shoes on yesterday and grinned and bared it. Hey she had to go get my food.

Mom seems to walk into thing when navigating the kitchen in the dark. Sometimes it's the stool she crashes into and sometimes it's our toys. I guess Mom should be more diligent about putting our toys away at night. Mom wonders why if we can take our toys out of the box. why we can't put them back in. Silly Mom, that would be undog like.

Oops, now that we got Mom up to give us our breakfast we can go back for a nap and let her get on with the day. Are we nice or what.
