Owie eye

Wow, I never thought I'd be happy going to the vet...but this new guy, our Hawaii vet Dr. Vance, is so cool. He doesn't make me feel like I'm being messed with, he just plays with me and we have a good time and it doesn't feel like "an exam..."

But I could tell he was checking me out...

Cindy told him about my left eye being kinda red and that she'd been washing it out for a few days but didn't think it was quite right, and you know, he looked really really hard and he found this tiny thing on my cornea and got it off with no trouble at all...and now my eye's feeling great and Cindy's not washing it out three times a day either.

Like I said, who thought I'd be happy to go see the vet?

The Humans have learned since Katrina...

When the humans on Hawaii were evacutaing for the Tsunami this past Saturday, the announcements said that pets could come if we were on leashes or in carriers.

Finally...they understand...if you want our humans to leave their homes from some catastrophe they have to be able to bring us or they arent' going.

Cindy said she saw a family in a minivan next to her at the gas station, when the lines were so long, with their little dog with them, they were all heading for the hills.

She offered them dog food but they said they had plenty.

 

In Honor of the Search Dog Foundation doggies...

Some of these dogs were in dog shelters, just like I was, once upon a time...til the Search Dog Foundation came and got them and trained them and their handlers, and now they are off doing life saving work in Haiti and other places.

These guys and gals, human and canine, are my heroes...I just want to honor them so I'm putting their picture on my web page for awhile.

Hail to the SDF!!!

 

Socialization class...

Cindy took me down to Petco today...they were having a class for doggies and it was about socialization and manners.

Gosh I wish I could talk her out of this stuff...first, I'm a terrier. I'm not supposed to like hardly anything else with fur on it. I love my big sister Ellie and she's good fun and company...fine, I don't need other doggies around me.

And what I really, really, don't like is them getting in my face. When I was back in the animal shelter, before Cindy's friends rescued me, they put me in this big pen with a bunch of way big dogs, and they were knocking me over and rolling me around like I was their own play ball or something...not hurting or biting but just treating me like a lower life form.

I never forgot that...I do not want other doggies getting in my space, especially running at me.

And there's no "Miss Manners for doggies" class that's gonna convince me otherwise. I just kinda sat under Cindy's chair the whole time and tried to mind my own business. I was sooooooooo happy when class was over and I got to go out to the car and be with Ellie again. I'm very happy with our little pack and I don't want any more classes...

 

Christmas Day in Hawaii...

We had some dark clouds and rain showers, but still a nice day. Cindy cooked ribs for dinner Christmas Eve and me n' Ellie got to crunch bones for almost an hour. Then we opened presents, and we got some really nice treats, and I got a new fleece bone toy. But the best part was Cindy really slept in this morning and me n' Ellie got to snuggle and get lots of back scratches and tummy rubs.

Then we went for a long, long trip to a park...and we got to really run off leash, totally running free. No concrete, no cyclone fences...when Cindy was unsnapping our leashes, she told me n' Ellie this was the day the dreams in quarantine came true, running free.

Merry Christmas to all!

 

Learning to be a beach dog

Okay, this sand stuff is kinda overrated in my opinion. When it's really deep my legs are kinda short. And geez, sometimes I even get it in my ears.

Being right next to the waves is kinda cool, the sand's nice and firm there and I can run more easily.

But you can't trust those waves, man I'm telling ya...look away for one second and "whoosh" you're soaked.

Still figuring out this beach thing.

 

I escaped doggie dress up at Halloween!

Oh thank the great Dog and all his doggie angels...

No costume this year. I guess Cindy's back is hurting her, and that's sad, but I didn't have to put on that silly pumpkin suit this year.

There are just not enough dog cookies in the world to wear that thing.

Now, if I can just hide the doggie aloha shirt...

 

Will Cindy try Stand up Paddling for me?

Uh oh...I was kinda hoping she would learn this so she could take me out with her...but but but it turns out there's a lot of kneeling involved with it. Cindy's got an artificial right knee...had to have her knee replaced awhile back, before I moved it. She's not supposed to kneel...

So now...I gotta make her forget I was ever interested cuz she's the kind of dogmom that would go out and try anyway.

I just wanna go on the ocean with her....

Hmmmm...gonna go sniff around about boats I think.

Even if that means Ellie goes too.
