Friskies... I've got 'em

No, not the cat treats, gross.... No offense Max! .... I mean I got the cold crispy winter air friskies!

My friskies are so bad I'm drivin' Mum nuts in the middle of the night! She gets up around 4AM because she can hear me wanderin' around the house. But then she doesn't want to play with me! I mean, come on!

She has takin' me to the park for a walk in the woods on Saturday and to play in the field on Sunday. And back twice this week .... on top of walks every day... sometimes two! But she can't wear me out! I got the FRISKIES!

Now, I know this picture  may make you think she finally did it, she finally wore me out ... But nope! I was just recharging.

Thanksgiving... Again?

This is me on my morning assessment of the neighborhood. I don't usually leave the step on my first trip out. I am happy to report everything was just as I left it.
Anyway, on this lovely BC morning I'd like to say Happy Thanksgiving to my American furiends!

Hope you all get some roast bird!

What was that?

It is 6am and we are up.... I mean wide awake!
We lost power last night around 130am, it came on around 530am! When it came on our fancy shmancy security alarm made the most god-awful scream. I rose from my bed to see what was the matter, but Mum near fell out of hers she got such a fright! BOL!

This was all good though it meant she was out of bed an hour early, so I got my breakfast early! And Mum got to eat breakfast with me instead of in the car!

Speaking of cars! I am featured today on my friend Bailey's blog, she did a post on Dog's in Cars. Go check it out!

Bulldogs Rule

I got a present in the mail this week! My very own Georgia jersey. Just in time for their win.

As you can tell, Mum ordered it ..... It's 85 .... I'm much more of a 56.

We had some of that white stuff too! I love snow, it tastes so so good, and so crunchy. It's also really fun to play in. Normally it melts as it hit the ground, but this time it stuck around and it's been a really cold week here.

We went to see Dr. Z today.... Again.....he said my back looks good as new. We just have to wait for my furs to grow back.

Ok, gotta go. I have to go snuggle in my blankets .... Brrrrrr!

In the dog house..err crate

I'm in trouble! I went a little cray cray on my walk, trying to get at my glow ball in the chuck it. Mum just didn't understand. She dropped the chuck in front of the neighbors house and left it there!! Are you kiddin' me? Someone could have stolen my chuck it Mum! She made me walk around the block and I didn't get to play at the park. What a kill joy! I thought I would come home and tell you guys about it, since its been a week since I posted.

We had a long weekend because of Remembrance Day on Friday. We were going to go to the ceremonies at the park in town, but it was raining and windy and cold. So Mum and Dad and I just stayed home, we watched the ceremonies on TV. In the afternoon, Papa and I took a nap together.

We went to see Dr. Z on Saturday, and he said my back is lookin' much better! He gave me another shot, but said by next Saturday.... when we go for another follow-up,  I should be as good as new.

  On Sunday our friend Michelle came to visit. Mum has been wanting to take me to a new park for a while, we always saw people walking there but never knew where to park the car. Luckily Miss Michelle knows all the cool places in town and gave us directions. It was a great new place to walk, and we saw Llamas!

Mum's been on the look out for a new bed but nothing yet. I finally gave in and started sleeping in my crate. It was surprisingly comfy.

Well gotta go, I have to go be cute and redeem myself.

Super Saturday Suprise Adventure

Ok so my post title may have over-sold it a bit.... but if your havin' skin problems I feel bad for ya son, I got 99 problems but my costco bed ain't one.... at least not anymore!

 Today turned out to be a pretty good day, even if it had its low points. I had my doubts in the beginning .... my day started with a bath! After my bath, we got in the car, and headed to the vet. I've been having some skin problems over the last couple weeks, and was losing  A LOT of fur.

Yes that's Llama, never know what you'll see at Dr. Z's

Dr. Z checked me out and said I have a skin irritation with a secondary staph infection. Ick! He gave me an antibiotic shot, and told my Mum to give me a bath every week. He said to alternate between medicated vet shampoo and Nizoral! All of this by lunch time! It wasn't looking good.

Dr. Z told my Mum all she can really do to prevent this problem is to keep doing what shes doing, watch my diet, no grains, weekly baths with medicated shampoo, and then he said "Does he have a costco bed?" Eureka! I do have a costco bed! Dr. Z said to get rid of it ASAP! He told us that the cedar chips mixed in the polyfill can irritate my skin. He told us he has seen a few dogs with this problem, as well as respiratory problems all linked to the beds. Yikes!

On the way home Mum surprised me by stopping at the park for a walk in the woods. This was the highlight of the day! We haven't gone for a walk in the woods in WAY TOO LONG! It was a beautiful day, and we met lots of people and dogs, and we watched people feed the birds out of there hands! All the people said, "Oh my god, look at the bulldog, he's so cute." And I thought, umm why have we not been coming here more often!? We also met one beautiful girl named Izzy! She is a Swiss Mountain Dog, with the pretties markings! And she was so tall.

When we got home Mum chucked the bed. She thought it seemed like a good chance to go to HomeSense and get me a new fancy bed without Cedar. Unfortunately she couldn't find one that was right for me. This one was too small, this one was too soft, none were just right. I will be sleeping in my crate for a while, I just have to get the blankets right.

For dinner Mum had a special treat for me.... Pumpkin! She cooked up our Jack-O-Lantern and now we have pure pumpkin goodness to mix in my kibble. Yummers! The rest of it is in the freezer for later.

After dinner, we went to the park and played fetch for a while before coming home and having a snuggle til Papa got home from work. What started out as a rough morning ended in an almost perfect day.

Now if you excuse me, I have some blankets to fluff.

Oh the horror!

Bloody Hell!
What was all that last night?! Mum and I went for a walk around the neighborhood and you wouldn't believe the things I saw! Witches, Princesses, Super Heros, a two legged Puppy! I didn't know what to do, sniff them or run home? Lick them or pee on their shoes!?
I was unceremoniously accosted by a two foot tall monkey! Unruly beast ran at me and grabbed my nose! I recoiled in horror as it next made a move to pounce on me. "WTF is that!" I cried! (I can say that cause Mum doesn't know its a swear) Mum said "Its okay Finny". It's okay? It belongs in a Zoo woman!
No wonder I was put in my crate when the door bell started ringing. It was the only safe place.

Hope you all stayed safe! Did the gates of hell open up and let unholy creatures roam your neighborhood too?
