I'm a princess!

I'm ALWAYS a princess, but now I'm a clean one!

I REALLY REALLY REALLY didn't want a bath.

Daddy carried me in the bathroom and I did this move I saw on TV - I stuck out my bottom legs and caught the door frame with my feet! It's a cat maneuver, but I was desperate!

Because I'm white I get washed TWICE. Oh, dog help me. Mama sung to me and I sung with her.

Luckily it was over kinda fast and we were DONE!

This morning I feel like a queen! Royalty! I got brushed and I'm so soft and lovely, I'm even walking more like my royal self! Oh, it's been so long!

Mama says if I roll in the dirt today she's gonna... oh, I can't tell, but it's bad! No rolling in dirt for me! Okay Mama, I'll try to remember! BOL!


Doggie PINKEYE!!!

I have doggie pinkeye!!

Mama noticed I was a little squinty. I told her it was 'talk like a pirate' day and my pirate accent is awful! So I needed me an eye patch to look like a pirate instead!

I got a first class trip to the dogtor! She put this cool glowy stuff in my eyes and said doggie pinkeye is the rage around here! Everyone's got it! No surprise, my paw is on the pulse of the trend!

The dogtor said I was the (are you ready for this?) MOST POLITE dog she's EVER met!! That's the way I take treats, anyway. Mama said that was a BIG BIG compliment, because she sees dogs all day long for her job!!

I'm a delicate flower.

This doggie pinkeye thing is SOOPER contagious! You don't even have to have eye-to-eye contact to catch it! A dog can sniff a plant, leave some goop, I sniff a plant, and POOF!! I have pinkeye!

Frank and Buddha are already exposed. Too late, suckers!! Mama noticed Frank had some bigger eye boogers, but nothing that looked like infection!

You know, I think what would help would be those eyedrops and MORE TUNA with our food. Vitamins! Protein! Good for healing! The immune system! I NEED SEAFOOD!!!

(Think they'll buy it?)


Have you ever played BALL???

Guess what Frank taught me? He taught me how to play ball! The ball is like a little yellow round squirrel, bouncing away from me!

I've started chasing after it! I bat it with my feet, like a cat! Yeah, I have cat-like reflexes.

The funny part is that for the past two years I've been SCARED STIFF of the ball! Balls start moving and I run away! Eeeeee!

When the ball comes at me I squeeze my eyes closed and open and close my mouth! When I hear it has landed I peek and go after it!

I've learned that it's VERY FUNNY if I get close to Mama holding the ball, but run away from her! I'm sneaky like that! I don't fetch, but I like chasing the little round yellow bouncy squirrels!


I got my Frankie back!

Frank came home! He looked WEIRD! He was wearin' a weird thing around his neck, and his eyes are REALLY DROOPY! Like, REALLY! He's sleepy!

I was very careful and sniffed all over. Mmm-hmmm, mmm-hmmm, oh! The vet... Mmmm-hmmmm...

Oh Frank! You've been through so much!

We all sat in front of his crate for hours when he got home, making sure he was breathin' and so he knew we were RIGHT HERE.

Frank is gonna need some TLC! Does this mean we get treats too? When do the treats start? Tomorrow maybe? Maybe? Maybe... yes?


Where's Frankie?

Where did Frankie go?

Mama and a sleepy Frankie (I think he was DRUGGED!!) left this morning, and Mama came back ALONE!

Where is Frankie? What did you do with him? Did you get him put down? Did you give him to the ZOO??? Is he having fun without us?

I'll pace the house and sniff sniff everything to see if I can find CLUES.

Mama says he'll be home in a few short hours. What is he DOING? Where is he? Is he okay? This makes me a wee bit nervous!


Treats are comin', do-dah, do-dah!

Frank is getting all manly on us! It's weird! He's playing harder and even trying to take Buddha's spot in the pecking order around here! I kind of like it, because something about Buddha sometimes makes me nervous. But I'm a nervous girl.

The good news? Tomorrow we ALL get yummy treats! If one of us has surgery, than EVERYONE gets treaties! NOM NOM NOM!! I'm so excited!!!! Treat time yet? Now? Now? Almost? Now?


Squirrel or cheese?

Squirrel or cheese?

Squirrel or cheese?

It may seem like a very difficult decision, however the cheese is USUALLY in the house. The squirrel is only SOMETIMES in the tree.

I choose squirrel!!


Winter Treats!

There are treats for poopie-eating dogs that are only available in the winter time!

I think they should be available year-round, so if Dogster gets up a demand, maybe we can open a market for it!

First, YELLOW SNOW! Nom nom nom! That is SUCH a GREAT treat! It's a yellow snowcone!

How fun is THAT? I am overwhelmed with the newness and happiness of it all!

Second, frozen poopie-pops! I've been eating sticks with Frank, and poopie-pops look a lot like sticks from a distance to the Mommy! Not only are they delicious, they are a frozen treat that looks normal! Nom nom nom!

Maybe if I'm good Mama will freeze some poopie for me in the summer. Oh wait, she just saw that, and she said NO! Maybe frozen bones, frozen cheese, frozen broth, but NOT frozen poopie! Spoil sport!

Oh well, I will enjoy winter as much as possible while I can! Who wants to play outside before Mama picks up poopie? MEEEE!

Daddy has been getting up VERY EARLY for work!


This morning I laid on Mama's legs, hoping she would pet me and NOT get up too!!

She did pet me, SCORE!, but then she said she needed to get up. I laid my head down like I was SOOOO tired, I didn't hear! Let's sleep!

Look! I'm already sleeping! You wouldn't want to WAKE me, would you? Oh, that would be SOOOOO RUDE!

She even touched my FOOT! Like to make me squeamish! It didn't work! I was fake-sleeping! Let's SLEEP! It's STILL DARK!

I got a few more pets out of it, and giggles, but eventually she slid out from under me.

Oh well! It ALMOST worked! I'll modify my technique and do better next time.....


It's not easy being top dog

Gosh, the responsibilities are enormous! Do these people REALIZE?

Top dog doesn't ALWAYS play, and I have to keep tabs on everyone at all times!

Buddha wants to play with me too much! Those jaws are SO BIG! It makes me a little nervous. Luckily when my snout gets tense I hear a little squeaky voice saying, "JOEY!" and I snap back to reality!

Frank has been complaining because when he's resting Mama sneaks over to steal a cuddle! Silly Mama! It's true, it's kind of annoying to be bothered when sleeping, especially how she does it, all light and like a bug! Eek! She says that's the only time Frank is holding still long enough for her to do that! Otherwise she's trying to protect her nose and teeth from damage due to big-wiggle-Frank!

I think they're working something out, a compromise of some sort....

I'll cuddle, Mama! Let's cuddle! Just for a minute though!

Wait, what are you doing with those nail clippers?
