I Have a Furever Home in Minnesota

December 28th 2008 11:48 am
[ Leave A Comment ]

Hi gang,

Quigley here. I'm a macho 4.3 lb Boston Terrier . I'm 9 weeks old. My Mom came all the way to Wisconsin to pick me up and take me to my furever home in Minnesota last Friday. She drove over 8 hours to get me. What an adventure.

My first impressions: Mom and Dad are great and I have a dog sister Maleka (a husky) who stays outside most of the time and a cat brother Chewtoy, and an amazing sister Priscilla who looks just like me. Mom was a little nervous about the two of us meeting, but I charmed her over and we are fast friends. Mom keeps a careful eye on us. Priscilla puts up with all my antics but I know I can be a pain at times. Mom keeps telling her that once I put a bunch of weight on then she can roughhouse me more.

Being in Minnesota I'm too little to go outside right now. I can't wait until Spring when I'm bigger so I can explore the yard and go for walks. Life is good. How did I get so lucky to find a family that loves me and a sister that will show me all the ropes.

Bye gang, time for a nap.



New Year's Resolutions

Mommy says we need to make New Years resolutions and she said I need to make a lot of them.

1. I need to remember where my potty place is.

2. I need to remember that ears and toes are not for biting.

3. I need to remember that I don't have brakes when I go racing across the kitchen floor.

4. I need to try not to steal everything my sister Priscilla has in her mouth unless she has specifically said "let's play''.

5. I need to remember shoes and slippers are not toys abd I shouldn't drag them all over the house.

Boy that's alot of things for a small little pup like me to accomplish.

I told Mommy that I should also list what I'm already good at.

1. I put a smile on everyone's face when they see me.

2. I have already discovered where all the heat ducts are so I can stay nice and toasty.

3. I only cry for about 30 seconds when I'm put in my kennel.

4. I ALWAYS eat all my food.

See, I'm a pretty good boy and under my sister Priscilla's sisterly love and guidance I will learn everything I need to know in no time at all.




I Have Three Names

You guys are going to be so impressed. Mom gave me two more names. I must be very special. Mom said she was registering me with the AKC whatever that is and we had to come up with a longer name.

My official name is now: Quigley Kilian Ranalt

Mom picked out the name Quigley before she even met me, and she said it fit me so it was a done deal. For my other 2 names she wanted to go with Irish names because Mom is half Irish and she likes the way they roll off the tongue. So Mom picked two names that describe me to a T.

Kilian means: small and fierce (that's me)

Ranalt means: charming

What can I say, Mom knows me. Then just for fun she looked up the meaning of the name Quigley and it means "messy hair" . Now you guys know that's not true. I'm a Boston. Well two out of three is not bad.

With my AKC registration I get 3 months of pet insurance. Mom is looking for pet insurance for Priscilla and me. Does anyone have any feedback on this as to what would be the best company.

Well gotta run. I haven't bothered Priscilla in at least 5 minutes. She'll think I don't love her.

I Ate Snow Today

I'm 11 weeks old. What an adventure it has been. Mom brought me home to live with them 3 weeks ago. My sister Priscilla (Cylla) has really taken me under her wing. I know I can be a bother sometimes, but hey I'm just a puppy and she's so fun to play with.

It has been so cold here in Minnesota that Mom hasn't taken me outside to go potty, so she's been trying to housebreak me on paper and potty pads. But I'm just a puppy, so sometimes my little brain doesn't remember. Mom talked to a trainer and she said she had to take me out or I'd never learn, so today we had a heat wave of 20 degrees with no wind so Mom took me outside. I found this wonderful white stuff to eat. Mom called it snow and told me not to eat the yellow stuff. I'll have to ask Cylla about that. Then I ran off the porch and found that I sunk right into the white stuff, down to my knees. That was weird. Mom rescued me, but I was having a great time. Mom didn't let me stay out too long because she said I would get cold. Mom wanted me to do something out there but I'm not sure what. She said we could go out later. What fun and I have the most macho green sweater to wear.

Life is good.



I've Been Tagged by two Gorgeous Gals

Dad says I'm quite the ladies man because I've been tagged by two gorgeous gals. Jessie and Gracie. My mommy is so busy this time of year she apologizes she probably won't have time to tag anyone. She's been working really long hours and going back and forth to grandmas house. Mom says she can only think of 3 funny things about me., but I'm only 12 weeks. I'm sure I'll get funnier.

1. I have the funniest tail. For a Boston it's pretty long and then it angles to the right.

2. I make the biggest noises when I play with my sister. Mom thinks that's too much noise coming out of 6 pounds.

3. Mom thinks its funny when I steal Daddy's clothes from the floor. She knows better and puts hers away.



Mom You Have To Be More Specific

Boy I was so proud of myself. Mom was giving me grief for going potty like a girl. How did I know I was supposed to lift my leg. So now I've been lifting my leg and she tells me it's the wrong one. What do you want lady. I need diagrams.

Man o Man. I went on my first walk with the girls yesterday. Mom was so proud of me. She carried me for a bit, but I walked forever. There were so many smells. I think I love walks. Mom when are we going again?

Mom enrolled me in puppy class which starts on Friday. I'm so excited to meet new friends.

I'm getting really macho. Last time Mom weighed me I was over 11 pounds.



I Didn't Even Feel It

Mom got me fixed 8 days ago. I didn't even know I was broken.

Mom was feeling really guilty taking me in to get neutered. But she knew it was the right thing to do. I also got microchipped and got a nose job at the same time. But I'm still as handsome as ever, just needed to open my nares a bit.

When Mom picked me up I had this crazy cone thing on my head so I was looking pretty sad. As soon as we got home Mom took it off and man I was an energizer bunny again. I didn't feel a thing. Mom was expecting me to have some pain and be really lethargic like Raffles was after he got fixed. Not me. I'm super dog. Mom was trully amazed.

She kept me away from my sister for a few days, but Mom said I was her same old jumping jack boy.

And now I've been to puppy class two times. What fun. I have two new friends and we are learning all kinds of things. I've got that sit thing down pat and last week we learned "leave it" - no problem.

Mom says I'm having some difficulty with down, but that may be because I just had surgery or it's my crazy tail. Dad says it's like a tripod. We have to work on that this week.

Dad's trying to teach me to shake and Mom says to wait until I've got my other commands down pat. One thing at a time. I mean it's not like the president is coming over to our house soon and I'd have to shake his hand. Come on Dad, give me some slack.

And the sun has been shining in our yard. It's fabulous. My favorite toy is the wiffle ball. I've finally figured out how to pick it up.

Life is Good.

Yay - it's puppy class tonight. Just me and Mom. It's something I look forward to. I think Priscilla does to, because I have to be honest, I do annoy her. I just want to play. And when I'm at puppy class she can relax.

The renters upstairs have a friend who has a new Boston puppy and they said they will bring him over to play with me. I can hardly wait.

Daddy picked up a job this week for two days so we've been stuck in the house for 2 days. I want to be out in the sun. I love outdoors.

I have discovered that someone attached a strange thing to my back side. I keep chasing it but I can never catch it. Mom laughed at me and said it was just my tail. What's a tail? She said it's the strangest tail she has ever seen. It goes out straight and then it turns and now that it's growing longer I can see the durn thing. I'm still going to try to catch it.

Mom separated Priscilla and me today. I have the run of the whole kitchen and poor old Priscilla has to stay in Mom's room on the comfy chair. She said that's the only way Priscilla can get some peace and quiet while she's gone. Is that a roundabout way to say I'm a pain. I wonder. I'm just so full of energy I have to share it. Maybe the cat will venture into the kitchen today. That would be fun.

Well I'd better take a nap so I'm all ready for class tonight.

The Ball Swallowed My Face

What a wonderful evening. Mom was gone most of the day - but she's home now. She had to work and then do groceries with grandma and of course she had to stay and play a couple of games of Parcheesi. Mom royally spanked Grandma's butt, but Grandma won the second game.

Mom brought me home a wonderful ball just my size, but before she knew it I had let the air out and the ball ate my face. Of course Mom laughed her butt of before I had a chance to escape. I trounched it and it will take no more prisoners while I'm around.

I have a new hobby. Frisbee catching. Mom says I'm very good at it. Of course as I'm a small pup Mom is substituting plastic coffee can covers and plastic lids. My record is 6 in a row. I'm very fast. I don't always catch them, but Mom is amazed that I bring them all back and put them in a pile by her feet. Of course Dad says he taught me how to play, but it was Mom.

Mom promises she will be home with us all day tomorrow. Yay.

Poor Priscilla, she is sitting under Mom's desk and Maleka is hiding in the front room. They don't like the fireworks. But as long as Mom is near them, they know they'll be okay.

Uh oh gotta go, that ball thing is trying to come back to life.


P.S. Mom weighed me at class last night and I'm almost 16 pounds. I'm getting very tall. Tall and Mean. Mom always laughs when I say that. She thinks I'm adorable. But I'm not going to argue with her. She's the keeper of the treats.
