Last night, mommy received a letter from a friend who told her about a radio personality named Lana Hughes with 740 AM KTRH who has a blog called "Animal House". She is accepting pet stories from people about how their pets were rescued, stories or survivial, how they met, etc... The stories will be showcased on "Reigning Cats & Dogs".

So, mommy immediately emailed her my story of how daddy rescued me a couple of weeks after some meanie threw me out of a car and sped away, leaving me to survive alone. She sent my picture in with the email and Lana Hughes emailed mommy tonight and said that she loves my story and can't wait to feature it on "Reigning Cats & Dogs"!! She also said I was very handsome!! Aaaaaarrrrrroooooooooo!!

I don't know when I will be featured, but I'll keep y'all updated. If you want to take a look at Animal House......Go to:
Animal House, There's lots of interesting stuff there to see!!

Yesterday morning mommy noticed a trail of blood on the kitchen floor and she got all scared and didn't know which of us five pets were bleeding. She quickly realized I was the one laying there, so she checked me over to see where I was bleeding and daddy was the one who saw I had broken my left dewclaw. Ouch!!! It was hanging by a think piece of skin or whatever. Mommy called the vet and they said all they would do would cut it off. So mommy got out the nail clippers and made daddy rub my belly and she first trimmed all my toenails, but when she tried to trim the broken dewclaw, I kept flinching and mommy was scared to hurt me. She remembered Brandon had done the same thing a long time ago and the vet then had just yanked it off real fast and it didn't even hurt him. But still she didn't want to be the one to do it in case it hurt me. So she told daddy she would rub my belly and he had to do it. Daddy didn't want to hurt his big boy either, but he saw I was so into my belly rub, he grabbed the broken nail and yanked it before I (or mommy) even knew what was happening. I didn't even feel anything. It is kinda sore today but it's not too bad.

 

Thank You Autumn!

This afternoon mommy found a box by our front door and it had me, Kaci and the cats' names on it~! It was from our Dogster/Catster friends in Kentucky: Autumn, Violet, Samoa, Calvin!

Mommy debated about letting us open it now or wait til Christmas, but since daddy is like a big kid at Christmas he told mommy to let us open it NOW! Yay for daddy!!

Autumn and her family sure knows how to pick 'em.....because we got some wonderful gifts from them!! Me and Kaci had a tennis ball, two squeaky toys and a cheesy flavored Nylabone (which I immediately staked a claim to!). It was a big Nylabone and I ate the entire thing in 20 minutes!! Kaci tried to sneak a taste but I growled at her, so she settled for the squeaky toys.

The cats got some catnip mice and treats.

Thank you so much to Autumn and her family for thinking about us, and thank you so much for the awesome Christmas presents!!

 

My Tail of Devotion for Conner

Dear Conner,

I remember the day your 'daddy' called me at work to tell me he had found an abandoned dog that was starving to death. Being the sucker for animals that I am, I didn't hesitate in saying, "Well, bring him home!" I think that was just what your daddy wanted to hear, because he said, "REALLY?...Thank you Baby!!"

I couldn't wait to get home to meet you. When I first laid eyes on you, I felt such sadness about your condition. You were worse off than I expected. And I felt anger towards the people who treated you so badly. God only knows what you endured before your daddy found you. Even now to think about it, brings tears to my eyes.

Even though you had obviously been neglected, abused and starved, you showed so much love and trust towards me and daddy. How could we not fall hopelessly in love with you on sight? You weren't very pretty then, but it was your big heart that melted us on the spot. Daddy had already fed you and given you water. I immediately proceeded to give you a bath and plans were made to take you to the vet the very next day. After your bath, I introduced you to the rest of your new family. You and little Kaci immediately bonded and you've been the best big brother she could ever have. We know you could easily take her head off with one bite, but you're a gentle giant who just lets the little brat have her way with you. You even got along with the cats!

I couldn't believe how someone could have thrown away the sweetest dog I have ever met. And I hate them for the way they neglected you, yet, I thank them for throwing you away, because had they not, we never would have had the opportunity to meet and love you.

They must have kicked you quite often from the way you used to jump away whenever I tried to rubbed you with my foot. Over time, you trusted me enough to allow me to do it . It must have been confusing to you, to be in contact with my foot, yet not feel any pain. I would never in a million years hurt you and I'm glad that you finally realized that.

I just want you to know that we're so happy that you came into our lives. I'm sorry that the beginning of your life wasn't a very good one, but I'm so glad that we are able to make the last years of your life a happy one. You will NEVER again have to worry about being hurt, starved or abandoned. Thank you for being the wonderful dog that you are. You're our big Conner Boy and we'll ALWAYS love you.

Love,
Mommy

Uh-oh.....today when mommy came home from the store, I thought she had bought me a new toy, but it was a silly holiday ELF HAT!!! The tag says a size LARGE, but it barely fit me. Mommy said it was the largest size they had and I can tolerate it for a few pictures. Grrrrrrrrrr!!!! Never in my life have I had to POSE for holiday pictures!! I don't like this at all. If I could only get into the closet and get my teeth on that elf hat, I could rip it to shreds and I won't have to wear it!!

 

Happy Birthday to ME!

Today is my birthday!! Mommy and daddy aren't sure how old I am since I was a rescue, but they think I'm probably about 6 or 7 today. I don't care what they say, I still feel like a pup!! Mommy said she's gonna make me my very own birthday cake today!! And it's gonna be specially made for dogs!! Hmmmm.....I wonder what that means??? Probably means NO yummy sweet frosting like people cakes do. That's okay!! I'll eat it anyway!!! Me and mommy took the birthday stroll here on Dogster just now and we gave a bone to EVERY birthday dog!!

I have to go now, someone is walking on the sidewalk beside our backyard fence and it's my birthday and I'll bark if I want to!!!! See ya!!!!

Woof!! Woof!!!

Mommy went to the Mardi Gras parade yesterday and brought back a bunch of beads, which she just had to string on each of our necks and take pictures. I hate that part of holidays. I kept tilting my head down so the beads would come off. Then mommy forced me to stand still for a picture. I figured I wasn't going to get out of this one. I still managed to screw the picture up by sticking my tongue out. I guess I showed her what I think about her stupid beads. Woof!!!!

 

Back home!

Mommy and daddy had to go to Louisiana for a few days cause Granny was in the hospital. They usually leave us with the pet sitter but cause it's cold and rainy, they didn't want us outside, so they left us with a boarder. It was okay, but I dissed Daddy for several hours after he picked us up.

 

OUCH!

First of all.....Mommy says that people have voted on my page and I got 4 Paws and I should thank all you nice people who have been given me "paws", so....thank y'all bunches!! Woof!

Today just hasn't been my day. First off, mommy and daddy got this new walking thingy.....it's like a machine and they walk on it, but they don't go nowhere. Mommy says it's a treadmill. So mommy was walking on this thing today and I walked up to her while she's doing her walking (with nowhere to go), and she reaches out and touches the tip of my nose and I got SHOCKED!! On my nose!!!!! It scared the dog poop outta me!!! I ran away and just watched from a distance. When mommy was done walking on the thing, she came over to pet me and I was scared to let her touch me, but I did, and nothing happened that time.

As if the "shocking experience" wasn't enough....I was laying on the floor in the living room by mommy's recliner and she gets up to go to the kitchen and she almost tripped and to avoid falling on me, she tried to take a big step over me, but I lifted my head at the same time and her foot smacked me right in the nose. Oooooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwww! But I'm a big boy and I didn't even cry, but mommy did. She sat on the floor with me and apologized over and over. The best part of it all is that she hugged me for a long time and kept kissing my nose and then she gave me, not one, but FIVE "cookies"!!!! YUM!!!
