The times they are a'changin'

Things are so weird here! It's CLEAN, and BOXES everywhere!

Frankie says that's 'cause they're his presents, but I don't think so! Kids!!

Something BIG is happening, but I know in my heart of hearts that it's going to be okay! That's because I read Mama and Daddy's energy and I don't see anything sayin' we'll be apart!

They are happy and excited, and so I am too! Yay!

 

Suitcase?

Mama is bagging our food, from the dog bag to ziplocks.

There’s a suitcase on the floor, and it’s FULL of ziplocked kibble! What’s this? Mama says it’s my suitcase, but I heard her tell Buddha that too! What’s going on?

Why do we need a suitcase of dog food?

Daddy is taking apart EVERYTHING and they say things in the house will turn into boxes tomorrow!

What is going on?

The truck is different, the seats are down! It’s all flat in the back!

And our dog beds have been in there? What’s going ON???

 

Broth-cicles!

Mmmm! Broth-cicles! Nom nom nom!

Mama’s cleaning out the freezer and there were tubs and tubs and tubs of frozen broth! Mama let them out to thaw and us dogs decided even though it’s 50 degrees here, we LOVE broth-cicles! They’re in the shape of butter tubs! Nom nom nom!

There were enough to go around, and then some! At first it was very hard and frozen, so we just lick-lick-lick-lick-lick-lick-lick-lick. And on and on.

Then they softened up a little, like an Icee! Then they were fun to bite and chew!

Mama says she hopes the fatty parts don’t give us more runs, but what was she to do? Deny us precious lovely angel darling dogs a taste-good? Nope! Thanks, Ma!

 

Now I’m less excited.

I heard an awful rumor we were getting our toenails trimmed today. Humph. They are pretty long, but really? Come on. I HATE that!!!

Mama and Daddy do it, and it is quite a production! Squish and squash and bear hugs - but not in a good way! Boooo!

 

Adventure dogs!!

We climbed a mountain, twice this week! And we’re gonna do it again Monday!

Me and Frank go with Mama, Buddha can’t go because it’s too much for him Mama says, between the rocks and the steepness and the length of hike. Poor Boo-boo! We’re going to have to think of something super fun he CAN do!

Mama lets us off the leash when no one is around and we sniff and hunt and bounce and play! All of our senses are on!

It’s SO FUN! Mama says we’re moving soon and we’re gonna LOVE it! She says she’ll take us to a different park EVERY DAY! Really??? There’s grass and trees and other doggies….

I’m excited to get back to what Mama calls ‘the real world’!

 

Weight Gain!

I think I'm gonna try to gain the six pounds I lost at the kennel TODAY. I've been trying the past few days, but I feel like TODAY is the day!

Feed me! Treats! Food! Anything! Except fruits or veggies or wheat. I'm a meat girl!

Is it time for breakfast yet? It IS?!?!?

Mama says I'm lucky because Frank has runny poop. She says because of that we ALL get rice in our kibble! Score! More food!

Wish me luck!!!

Me, Frankie and Buddha went on a weight loss diet! Mama and Daddy put us in a kennel for six days! Since I’m the only one who has been boarded before with the family, I was in charge! Frankie has NEVER been boarded! Buddha has, but in a very different way!

I lost 6 pounds, Buddha lost 2 pounds and Frankie only gained one pound, which means he lost weight!

NOW it’s time to EAT EAT EAT, and make up for it! I was WASTING AWAY! I was almost NOTHING!

I’m HUNGRY! Is it dinner time yet???

 

Hobble

I'm a hobbler! Well, kinda sorta. Only sometimes. When I'm running...

Anyway, I had a LIMP today on my bike ride! Daddy brought me right back home!

Mama looked at my right front foot with a HEADLAMP on!! She says she looked in evfurry crevice and at evfurry hair on my paw bottom! Daddy was SQUISHING me so she could. Silly pawrents!

She didn't see a thing! I got Epsom salt and a promise for another GRAND SQUISH and foot inspection soon!

I might have an owie on my right front paw, I've been licking it off and on... but I'm not telling! Shhhh! BOL!

 

Getting a little closer...

We've had Buddha for just over two months now and I'm starting to warm up to him more!

Usually I play with Frank and when Buddha wants to play I say NO.

Lately I've noticed that Buddha gets a lot of love from Mama. Hm! I really like lots of love from Mama too....

When Buddha goes to get love then I will go to get love too! Sometimes! We can agree on sweet loves from Mama!

Buddha has started hopping up and sleeping near me. Hm. He can be a pretty loud snorer, but it's not too bad. We usually sleep rump to rump.

Last night he was crated and sleeping, and I laid right in front of the crate, so I could hear his snores!

Mama and Daddy say I'm warming up to Buddha! I don't NOT like him, but I just think he's unpredictable!!! Hm.

He might be okay after all. Mama says he's the best snuggle buddy EVER! We'll see!

 

I'm special!!!!

Hi! I'm special today! I got to go for a car ride with Mummy AND Daddy today - all by myself!!!

I haven't done much by myself lately. 'My' time was at dog class, but when Frank started coming too my 'Me' time with the pawrents was over!

THEN Frank AND Buddha would go to each others classes! And leave me at home ALL ALONE!

Now that I think about it... I do spend a bit of 'Me' time snuggling with Mama's feet while I sit under the desk and she does computer stuff...

ANYWAG, today it was about ME! I went on a two hour car ride, the wind was in my ear hair and face, it was glorious! I even got to get out of the car and sniff outside places, like the chiropractor and the auto mechanic! Neat-O!!

I fell asleep on the way home, what a big day!

I am happy and calm and know I'm a special girl today. I may not be the Buddha, all abused, newly saved (twice!) and three-legged, and I may not be the puppy (i.e. Frankie), but I'm JOEY! I'm special and pretty and white! I'm talented! I can run FAST and jump like a bunny rabbit! No, higher! I have a keen sense of smell and sight! I can read energy with the best of 'em! I choose to enjoy my life and the good things it gives me. I. Am. Joey!

Everyfur is special, sometimes it may not seem so in the depths of day-to-day life, but it's true! Just trust me on this one!

Happily special,
Joey
