Man has it been a long time since I was on here! I guess I could start with the fact that my Sabres got bounced in the first round of the playoffs by the Flyers. We had a few times to close the series out but ultimately blew them and lost the series in Game 7. All is well though because 1. In Pegula We Trust - next season will be different, 2. The Flyers just got swept by the Bruins a few nights ago, and 3. Mommy's second favorite team (and therefore mine as well) the Tampa Bay Lightning are still alive. Come On Tampa!!!!
Now onto the important stuff...like the FIRE! Last Monday morning was a typical morning. I was all curled up on the couch in big guys blankie, mommy was upstairs making breakfast for herself before school, and then all of a sudden mamie runs in the house "FIRE, we have fire in the garage". Mommy runs outside to find that we sure did have a fire, and not just smoke and hotness but actual flames in the front corner of the garage. Luckily we caught it before it was too big so mamie was able to put it out with the garden hose but boy was it a close call. It burned through some stuff from that corner (like a garbage can, some wood, etc) but for the most part the garage was unharmed...PHEW thank god that was caught quickly!
And now my intruders. Our neighbors Tiffany and Mike are on a little trip for 5 days which meant they left their 2 dogs Tyson (a boxer like my Meaty), and Ruby (a pitbull) home and left mamie in charge of taking care of them. Here lil ole me thought they'd be staying at their own home and just being let out but SURPRISE here they are, in my house for "play time". Are you kidding me?! I'm freaking 20 pounds and 6" off the ground, Ozzy wasn't enough?! They play a lot, and I try to play too but I get a little skittish, you see, they run, and they run hard and I'm afraid my lil self is going to get trampled in all the commotion. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad mamie is taking care of them but GRRR I wanna play too!
Tomorrow mommy has a BIG nursing final. Because of the fact that she had mono in the beginning of the semester she needs an 84% on this final to move on into her FINAL semester of nursing school, if she gets below an 84% she'll have to repeat this class and be a semester behind. She's been studying like a mad woman for the last week! Eat, study, work, study, sleep, study, little play-time with me, study...she really knows her stuff but her teacher's are big fans of ridiculous nonsensical questions...over half of the class is failing and needs an 80% or above on tomorrow's big final...that should say something! Anyways, keep mommy and her friends in your thoughts please, they could use all the well-wishes they can get...I have full confidence, mommy's no dummy, she can do this!
Alright well, it looks like my "play-time" is here so I'm gonna get to it while she's still got the time before she gets back to studying! Hopefully I'll be back on sooner, rather than later now that school is coming to an end for mommy!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MOMMY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!
Would you believe that two years ago I was the present (granted, I came early), but seriously...TWO YEARS! I must say I may have been the bestest (and cutest) present ever, but in my opinion this birthday didn't disappoint my mommy either, she got all kinds of good stuff...Yankees clothes from Victoria's Secret, a DVD rack, all kinds of new DVD's, a GPS, gift certificate to the spa, money, tons of gummies (her favorite snack), and probably more stuff that I'm forgetting. WOWZERS is she spoiled huh?
Anyways, I just popped on here quick to wish her a HAPPY 23rd BIRTHDAY, now it's time to go relax, catch the Yankees, and maybe score some birthday cupcake!

So, last night, it happened, my Buffalo Sabres who started their season off so poorly beat the Philadelphia Flyers in overtime to clinch their playoff berth. They sit in 7th place right now with the opportunity to take 6th place today. How wonderful is that?! However, I must apologize to my pal Jay-Jay. See, he's from Philly and they were trying hard to win to try and move up in the standings from second to first. Sorry little buddy, maybe you can do it today?!
Yesterday I also watched my Yankees play, they however were a let down. Leave it to us to give the Boston Red Sox their first win of the season. Eh well, maybe we'll get em today!
Oh, seeing as in my last entry I woofed about my mommy's court appearance for a speeding ticket perhaps I should update everybody on that. Big guy was 100% wrong, she didn't lose her license. In fact, they went pretty easy on her. See, being twenty over the speed limit here in NY is supposed to get you 4 points on your license, roughly a $200 fine (if not more), mandatory driving school, and then of course, a possible license suspension for 6 months, plus a long lecture from the judge. Due to mommy's clean driving record however, the DA reduced her to two parking tickets, which means no points, the judge put a $45 fee on each parking ticket meaning she's paying $90 total, she does need to attend driving school next Saturday morning for 4 hours and take notes to submit, but she was even spared the judges lecture because she's had her license for so long without any blemishes. Yupper, she got really lucky!
Alright well, mamie just came home from grocery shopping which means it's time to put groceries away and cut fruit for me!

Well it seems as though between last night and this morning I caught some kind of bug. No not the creepy crawly ones that I like to chase around and swat at and play with, the tummy kind. I'm all kinds of lazy this morning, and didn't even help mamie with a single chore, beg for food from mommy, or greet grandpa at the back door for lunch. Nope, I've been laying in the same spot on the couch for probably the last 3 hours if not more with my tummy making all kinds of noises. I don't wanna play, I don't wanna eat, I just wanna sleep. :-( I don't like being sick and lazy. There's so much I could have done today. Mamie already swept, vacuumed, and swiffered all the floors in the house, mommy already made something yummy for herself for lunch, Ozzy has already played with all kinds of fun toys, and grandpa is already home for lunch as well and I've missed out on it all! All I can say is whatever bug is inside my tummy better be gone by tonight to I can cheer my Sabres onto victory against the Lightning rather than sleeping through the entire game.
Alright well, I'm off to rest some more.

Well, last time I woofed I was gearing up for an eventful weekend of more Yankees games, two very important Sabres game, and finishing moving rooms with mommy. The Yankees have started out quite well, going 2-1 in their first three games, and currently they have a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning against the Twins...KEEP IT UP GUYS!!
My Sabres faired pretty well too. In Saturday's big game against the Capitals they were down 2-0 before the end of the first but they came roaring back to tie it, and then even took a lead. They did end up losing in overtime, but hey we still got a point. Then on Sunday, the big game happened. Sabres vs. Hurricanes. The Hurricanes were only two points behind us for the last playoff spot entering that game so it was a crucial one. As usual with those two teams it was very low scoring, and took overtime but my Sabres came out on top! WOOHOO, I was such a happy puggy, we're now three points ahead heading into the final week of regular season games!
My mommy is feeling rather stressed right now. Ya see, back at the end of February she was on her way home from a long day of clinical and a State Trooper pulled her over for speeding. He claims she was doing 75mph and that he caught her on radar but mommy doesn't believe him for a couple reasons 1. He pulled more than her over at one time so how can he be sure she was doing 75mph and not the lead car in the line (that he also pulled over) and 2. Her car starts to handle differently when she approaches 75mph and it was handling just fine. She says she would be fine with the ticket except that the first thing big guy said to her was "the judge is probably going to take your license for that" and now no matter how many people tell her she won't lose her license for her first offense and that she'll most likely get a fine, and traffic school, the whole license suspension thing sticks with her and she's stressing that she won't be able to get too and from work or school anymore :-( Please be kind Mr. Judge-dude, it is her first ever ticket and she's been driving for 7 whole human years!
On a different note, I had another check-up at the vet last Friday and he was VERY pleased with what he seen. See, I used to be on prednisone for allergies but my hair started falling out (yup, I was a bald pug) and they felt that it may be the prednisone so he changed my meds, now ALL of my hair is growing back...including the hair that belongs in the spot on my head that was burned a couple years ago. Can you believe that! I'm not going to be completely bald anymore! The vet is positive that the hair on my body will grow back (because it already is) but he's not 100% sure the small spot on my head will permanently or completely grow back. Only time will tell, but it is a step in th right direction!
Alright well, I'm off to watch my Yankees! GO YANKEES!!!!

WOOHOO! Mommy has finally moved into her new room, which means I'm one step closer to having my own room to share with Ozzy! Her new room still needs baseboard but my big guy is pretty sure he can move her furniture out of his way to put it in so last night they moved all her furniture and even most of her pictures and stuff over to the big room. It's so weird to me. When Unkie had that room I wasn't allowed anywhere near it, it was always a disgusting mess, and the door was always closed. Now, the room is nice and clean, the door is always open, and I can move in and out of it at my leisure with nobody being concerned about what I may find/chew/eat! How exciting right?!
So I'm a bit torn today. This weekend BOTH my teams play. The Yankees are playing in their second and third games of the season, and my Sabres are playing in TWO HUGE games that could potentially make or break our playoff hopes. What do I wear?! Do I rock my Yankees stuff or do I rock my Sabres stuff? Ahh, the choices! Mommy has to work all weekend and will be missing ALL of the games, but as she puts it "eh, I have Sabres radio on my phone so I may be working but you best believe all Deli customers of my store will be listening to the Sabres game!", haha, she figures store management may frown upon that a bit but her response to them will be "you can always feel free to send me home to watch it". Yeah that's right, don't get in the way of mommy and her Sabres.
Alright well, mamie just came home from shopping so it's time for me to go put some groceries away and cut some yummy fruit!

Tomorrow, Tomorrow, I Love Ya Tomorrow, You're Only A Day Away! Do you know what tomorrow is?! Tomorrow is opening day for baseball! That means...it's YANKEE TIME! WOOHOO GO YANKEES!!!!!!
In other news, the remodel of my Unkie's old room is still going. The room (including the closet) is now completely painted, and has a new hardwood floor. All that's really left to do is get the curtains, put the baseboard down, and move all mommy's furniture from her current room into that room. How exciting is that? Well, very exciting to me!!!
As I sit here writing this I'm watching my Sabres play in a VERY big game. See, they started this season in terrible fashion, then suffered some big injuries, and were definitely not looking like a playoff team at all. Now all of a sudden they've kind of turned it around and are currently sitting in 8th place but only by 3 points. This game is so big because the team right behind us is playing and winning right now, and the team we're playing is actually only two points ahead of us in the standings...so a win here could move us further up into the playoffs, but a loss here could cut our lead for the last playoff spot to ONE point with only five games left to go! COME ON BOYS, Don't break my lil' puggy heart now!
I've developed a new habit that mommy and family find adorable but slightly odd. I like to tunnel. If I can find any kind of blanket or comforter on the floor I burrow my way into it (without disturbing how it's laying), turn around inside, and just lay down all snuggly inside, sometimes I'll stay there for hours, and I bury myself so good people don't even know I'm in there until somebody tells them! Strange? I don't think so, I just like my privacy and to be extra snuggly and warm!
Alright well, I've had a very busy few days, lots of cleaning and playing and stuff so I think I need to go relax, watch my hockey game, and take a nap!

Work has begun on transforming my Unkie's room into a clean and livable space for mommy to move into. For the last week it's been all about cleaning and sweeping and getting the stuff he didn't take with him boxed up, and patching and sanding holes down, but yesterday the fun stuff began...the painting. Mommy and her bestest friend ever Jen began working on that room just before dinner and before 6pm they had two of the walls painted grey and the ceiling as well. Now today Jen is on her way over to do any grey touch-ups and paint the other two walls black. Within the next day or so hopefully the new floor can be laid and mommy's stuff can start moving in, this way I have more space in by mommy but also have an "Ozzy and Me" room just down the hall with a bunch of toys and food and stuff! Lucky us huh?
SO, it's still bitterly cold here, 23 degrees right now to be exact, and me being a small and short haired dog, I hate the cold so even when I'm in the house I seek out the sunspots to lay in. Well, usually those are on the floor but not today. Noper. Today it was on the end table, so little ole' me climbed up to my ottoman, climbed to the couch, and then climbed up onto the end table, and just chilled for a bit in my sunspot. Yup I'm a determined little man!
Alright well, best friend Jen is here so it's time for me to go paint and stuff!

Hmm, I have so much to say but I don't know where to start! I guess I can start with the fact that my Unkie Jay moved out last week. Yup, he's grown up I guess, purchased his first car, bought a new laptop, and moved into an apartment with his good friend Alex all within 2 days! The house is much more quiet without him around, and the food sucks a lot more because he was the chef of the family BUT, good has come of it too! My mommy gets to move into his room (which is bigger than hers) and then her current room is going to be made into a spare bedroom/Ozzy and I bedroom. It's going to be a while before any of that happens because Unkie definitely destroyed that room and there's lots of work to be done! Mommy and mamie have already cleaned it, but now Big Guy has to repair the nail holes, staple holes, and other imperfections in that walls, and trust me, there's A LOT of those! Mommy has picked her paint colors already...black and grey, and her new floor is already sitting in the house waiting to be put in but that's it so far. Big Guy has been working for roughly 2 days in that room and still has plenty more to do before painting and flooring...I say, HURRY UP, I want my own little room!!
On to not so exciting news. I'm shooting one ferocious stink eye at mother nature right now. For roughly the last week it's been pretty nice outside, mamie and I were even able to have a "buggy" fire once. Man, I was lovin' it! Light jackets, longer time outside, it was perfect for me. Today I wake up to...SNOW! Really? I mean I get that it's only March and it is Buffalo but dang mother nature you got my hopes up real high! I thought Spring was really here to stay and now ka-pow-ee, I wake up to roughly 4" of snow, 25 degrees, and more snow on the way throughout the day...ICK!
Back to some more exciting news. SPORTS! My Sabres are playing pretty well lately (despite blowing a 2 goal lead in 3 minutes the other day) and are currently sitting in a playoff position with 8-9 games left to play. Sure it's the last possible playoff berth but considering how poorly this season started I'll take it cuz a few months ago I'd have said they had no business even thinking about the playoffs! AND, only 9 days (including today and opening day) until the Yankees square off against the Tigers at Yankee Stadium in the season opener! WOOHOO am I one very excited little guy! Let's go Sabres, and Let's go Yankees!
Alright well grandma and grandpa just came home from shopping so I'm going to go investigate and help them put stuff away!

So last week I went to the vet about those suspicious black polka-dots on my tummy and was told that they were a bacterial infection and also that my allergy med was causing me to go bald, so of course I was given a new allergy medicine and an antibiotic. Well, I just came back from a re-check and after only one week of weening myself off the prednisolone and onto the new allergy medicine my hair is growing back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Who knew a week could make such a difference?
Well, the weather here is kind of nice, almost 50 degrees, which trust me is nice for Buffalo right now anyway so I'm gonna head outside and play and stuff!
