Abandoned in Stairland

I don't know how the heck it happened but when Grandma went upstairs last night I tagged along with her to go up the stairs. Something I've never done before. But I knew there was an adventure up there just waiting to happen. So I bounded up the stairs and Grandma didn't even see me. I know Mom didn't see me either or she would have grabbed me. There is a very interesting area up there that I've been wanting to explore and I saw my chance. All of a sudden I heard a door shut, then the light went out and I heard another door shut. Uh oh. I knew I was in big trouble then. I had been so sneaky that no one knew I was there. It was really dark. I thought for sure Mom would miss cute little me and come to my rescue and I waited and waited and waited. Soon the shadows got really big and I was so scared I couldn't even bark. I found a corner to hide in away from the shadows and hunkered down. About 30 minutes later the door opened downstairs and Mom was there. I was so happy to see her. She looked very relieved to see me too. We both were a little shook up and I promised Mom I wouldn't sneak away again. My feelings were a little hurt that it took Mom 30 minutes to miss me. But she said I was sleeping in my bed when she took Grandma upstairs and never thought that I had followed her. When she took a break from her project she came in to snuggle with me and couldn't find me. She knew I was in the house somewhere but got nervous when I didn'tcome when she shook the treat bag. Mom is so brilliant and she finally figured out where I could be.

Needless to say I'm staying out of stairland for awhile.

No Rule Book

Egads. I just realized why I get in so much trouble. No one ever gave me the dog rule book. What were they thinking? How the heck am I supposed to be gooder than gold if I didn't get the rule book. No wonder Mom laughs when I pee like a girl. Not my fault Mom. NO RULE BOOK.

I have no big brother to show me the ropes. I have a sister Priscilla but you know how girls are. Geesh. You think she would have told me about this rule book thing long ago. I think she enjoys when I'm in trouble. It throws the attention away from her and she can do whatever she wants because all eyes are on me. Oh she is devious.

Mom found be a book the other day called "The Dangerous Book for Dogs" she's been reading some of it to me every night. Maybe this will help me understand what the heck life is all about.

Until then, there's another ball to catch, another squirrel to chase and a sister to torture. A typical day.

Grandma is the Best

September 1st 2011 10:36 am

Man, I've been having so much fun this summer I haven't had time to write in my diary.

Monday was the best day. Mom had a work thing going and didn't get home until really late. Being the loving Mom she is she didn't forget us. She asked grandma to come downstairs and let us out and feed us.

Mom says grandma has some memory issues so she doesn't ask her often to let us out. But she had Mom call her from our place and she talked her through feeding us. We were very happy. Then we went out on the porch and spent some time with Grandma. Here comes the good part. After Grandma finished her cigarette and was going back upstairs, she said oh my gosh, I almost forgot to feed you so she fed us again. I tried to tell Grandma she already fed us but Priscilla wouldn't let me. That girl loves to eat. She said she'd sit on my head if I uttered one word. So what could I do. I just zipped my lips and ate another meal. Of course Mom figured it out when she got home so she said she'd have to come up with another plan if there's a next time.

It's a sad week - our Brother Chewie has gone to the Bridge

We saw Mom take Chewie to the vet but when she came back the carrier was empty. We thought she'd pick him up later like she does for us some time, but he never came back. Mom told us that he was very sick and his body just gave out and we had to let him go so he wouldn't be in pain. Priscilla and I looked everywhere for him but Mom brought his ashes home last night and we understand now and we all had a good cry.

Even though he wasn't lucky enough to be a dog like us, for the only cat I've ever met he was awsome. We were always separated by a gate but sometimes he and I would just sit at the gate and just talk to each other. I miss him. Mom is very sad so Priscilla and I are keeping tabs on her.

We have Mom home for a four day weekend so we are very excited.

Hope everyone has a awesome Fourth of July.

I'm Helping Grandma with her Exercises

June 11th 2011 11:15 am
[ Leave A Comment ]

Am I an amazing granddog or what. Every day I help Grandma with her exercises. She sits on the porch and I bring her my ball and she throws it, I retrieve it and bring it back. Time after time, after time. I know it's very tiring on my part, but Grandma needs my help so I hang in there. Oh there's days when she calls me a pest and a few other things that I can't put in my diary, but Mom says she needs the interaction with me so I do my part.

My grandma is 81 and she smokes. Yeesh. I thought she was a whole lot smarter that that. Mom says Grandma's memory is not so good, so she forgets she just had a cigarette and asks Mom for another one. Some days she makes Mom very crazy. Grandma has COPD and Emphysema so she's not supposed to smoke so many. Mom's hoping that with her memory loss she'd forget that she smokes but no such luck. So when I can keep Grandma occupied that's the best thing. Because Mom said Grandma can't smoke by Priscilla and me.

Our brother Chewtoy is not doing well. He doesn't seem to be in any pain yet, but Mom senses that he's declining. It's a sad time. Our rooms are separated so we won't bug him but it's always nice to know he's just on the other side of the gate with those piercing blue eyes. He's a very wise and mellow cat.

Oops gotta go check on Mom. I'm her little shadow. If she doesn't see me close by she'll wonder what's up.

I've Been Googled

Mom googled me just for the heck of it and it brought up one of my Dogster diary pages. How cool is that. She used my AKC name - Quigley Killian Ranalt and there I was. Poor Priscilla, and Chewtoy - Mom googled them and no hits. It just goes to show - I'm unique. Or as Priscilla would say, one of a kind - thank goodness. I'll try not to get the big head.

Mom Bought Me A New Chucky

I loved my "Chucky the Squirrel" toy so much that I destroyed it. Of course Priscilla helped me. It is my favorite because its four paws glow in the dark. Priscilla and I sleep under the covers with Mom (cozy) and when I take Chucky in there with me I can see in the dark. Mom was very proud of me for having it so long, but she realized its days were numbered so she bought me another one last night. I was over the moon. I took my new Chucky to bed last night - he's better than the original. I still have my old Chucky but he only has 2 paws yet so I think Mom will give him a nice burial.

And it's 50 degrees out already and it's only 10:00, can life get any better.

That Sunbeam Guy Has a Weird Sense of Humor

March 27th 2011 7:41 am
[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ]

Wow, can you believe it, Mr. Sunbeam has been here most of the weekend. There's nothing better than laying in a sunbeam. But Mr. Sunbeam is always playing tricks on us. We just get comfortable and are basking in the sunbeam and we open an eye and he has moved 6 inches to the left. We move again and get cozy and he does it again. I guess that must be his bizarre way of playing "catch me if you can".

Then he fools us again by shining outside the house, we run out there and try to catch him because there are really big sunbeams outside, but man it gets cold on the tushy. Mom says he's teasing us for another month. It's still only in the 30's at best, but Mr. Sunbeam entices us outside and then says "Gotcha". Priscilla just takes it in stride, but if I ever meet this guy will I give him a piece of my mind.

Oops gotta go he moved again. He likes to move to different rooms in the house at different times of the day. Mom says he's playing hide and seek.

P.S. Don't tell Priscilla this but the one thing better than laying in a sunbeam, is laying there with Priscilla. She's a great pillow.

 

Top Of The Morning To You

Happy St. Patricks Day. Mom is half Irish so she gave me a good solid Irish name. Quigley Killian Ranalt. Killian means small and fierce - that is me to a T. Ranalt means charming - enough said. But here's where I seriously think Mom didn't do her research - Would you believe that Quilgley means MESSY HAIR. What in the world. My hair is too short to be messy. Oh well two out of three were spot on so I won't give Mom too much grief.

Priscilla is doing much, much better. She's going back in next week for a checkup. Sometimes she pretends to be too much of a lady to get down and wrestle with me but let me tell you when no one is looking she's a maniac. She has them all fooled.

My cat brother Chewtoy is hanging in there - we are very proud of him.

Oops gotta run, I think I just saw that dastardly squirrel Rodney sneaking along the fence line. I see you Rodney - you'd better run. Drat, if only I was outside. I do believe he just gave me the Rasberry. Pretty tough when I'm on other side of the window. I double dare you to do that when I'm outside.

My Favorite Relatives Came To See Me

February 26th 2011 3:04 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ]

Wow, can this weekend get any better. Mom had her 60th birthday on Friday and spent most of the day with us, her favorite little people. So it's another 3 day weekend. Priscilla and I are exhausted already.

Uncle Jesse and Aunt Vicki came to see us today. They visited with Mom awhile, but Uncle Jesse said he came especially to see me and play catch with me. It gets a little tiring but Uncle Jesse loves it so much I try to keep him happy. Now I have to take a nap to get my strength back. I think Uncle Jesse would have played catch with me all day if he could have.

Priscilla spent another day at the vet, but now she's on new medicine and a new diet and she's feeling better and wants to play with me again.

She even let me touch her belly where they shaved it for the ultrasound. Now that she's feeling better Mom says I can play with her again. I was getting lonely.

Oops gotta go, Mom needs me. If I don't keep tabs on her there's a possibility I might miss something important.
