Merry Christmas Blogville!

Hello furiends, it has been a very long time.

My little biped brother takes up way too much of Mum's time, so I don't get much blog time. It's not all bad though, he smells good, and I get to lick his head, and we have gone on a few little adventures.

Anyway, what I really want to do is wish you all a very Merry Christmas and wish you all the best for 2013. I hope Santa Paws find you all and leaves you a little something under the tree.

And Santa Paws if you are reading this, I have been a very very good boy this year!

Forgive me blogville, for I have strayed. It has been over a month since my last post!

Dudes, my life has been turned upside down! My little brother is taking over and there is nothing I can do about it.

My sleep is disrupted on a nightly basis. He cries when I have playtime at the park! And although my number of walks has increased, he seems to set the pace. He cries when I stop to pee! I mean really .... That's pretty rich from someone who pees in his pants.

All in all its not bad, his toes do smell really good! And Mum says he'll be fun to play with once he is a little bigger.

Sheesh! When I was his age I was packing my bags and getting ready to leave my fur family forever. This kid cries when Mum goes to the bathroom. Wuss!

Well that all for now! Gonna try to take a nap while he does!

It's staying!?

Well the biped puppy has arrived! As puppies go, it's kinda ugly! As people go though, he is kind of cute.... I guess!

He makes way more noise than I ever did, and he poops in the house and everyone thinks its fine.

My G-Ma has become his "Nanny" and when he's not stealing her attention he's stealing Mum's. The little prince even has his own carriage which I am expected walk nicely along side of, like some sort of trained animal!

On the upside I am getting way more attention from Papa, and my treat quotient has doubled! I get treats just for smelling the kids feet .... Have my pawrents lost their minds! I'd smell feet for free.

Mum said I could post this picture, even though you can see his face. Apparently, it's ok for my mug to be all over the interweb, but not his.

And people think I'm spoiled?

What a life!

Good news buddies! The stitches are out and I look extra handsome. My eye lift has made me look 6 months younger! You know, in that natural well rested sort of way. Doctor Z is very happy with how it all healed up.

We have also discovered in the last week that I am sensitive to the cleaning fluid in the swiffer wet jet! Will it never end?! Luckily they figured it out quickly, Mum washed me up! And G-Ma cleaned the floor (again, without the swifter) and it has helped a lot with the itching.

My G-Ma is here for a visit. She is staying with us til the new puppy arrives. The kid is already late by two days! And they think I'm slow and stubborn! Phhhhh!

We may be a little busy in the next few weeks! I'll do my best to keep you up to date.... It's not like I could blog less right!?

See you soon friends!

On the fix

Papa and I went to see Dr. Z today. He was most pleased with my eyes. He showed Papa how to clean the incisions, apparently Mum was being too gentle. I could have lived without that demonstration!

I have to go back again on the 24th to have the stitches removed, assuming Mum isn't having puppies that day. BOL! Papa says that's the day the biped puppy is supposed to arrive. (I don't care what anyone says, I'm not sharing my toys!)

After our little outing Papa went to see a friend near by and had my antler fixed. The ends were getting kind of jagged and there was a good 7 inches of antler just being wasted! Papa's friend cut off the sharp ends with his fancy saw, and now my antler is just like new! I had the best chew this afternoon.

Mum and I went for a short walk tonight, it was very warm. When we got home I got a good drink from the hose. Last night was so warm she hosed me down before our walk. It really makes a big difference. And by the time we got home I was almost dry! That's my stay cool tip ;)

Ok, going to chill on the patio. I wonder who will walk by tonight?

I'll still be handsome right?

Holy hell! WTF did they do to me! I look like a cartoon character with toothpicks holding my eyes open!

The surgery went well. They did both eyes, top and bottom. I have been very sleepy tonight and Mum and I have spent most of our time snuggled on the patio. Dr. Z will see me again in a few days.

Now if you excuse me, I have some power napping to attend to! Thanks for all the good wishes furiends!

And so it continues....

Hi friends, a bunch of you asked how my eye problems are going. The good news is the scratch healed up. The bad news is that Mum noticed my eye getting cloudy, so after work yesterday she took me to see Dr.Z. She didn't trust the backup vet.

Dr. Z apologized for not being available when this problem all started, he was out of town for two days. He took one look at me with his big magnifying head piece and knew what my problem was! I have a problem called entopian. My eye lid is curling back and my big handsome eyelashes are scratching my big handsome eyeball! It's something that he had mentioned to the pawrents a while ago. He noticed then that my eyelids were "tight", but at the time there was no need to treat it.

The solution is for me to have surgery! Tomorrow!

In happier news two of my new friends have given me awards!

From Marley all the way in India I have received the Sunshine Award.

From Emma I have received the Versatile Blogger.

I want to say a big thank you to both of these new friends! And I hope you will all visit them!

So, as I am sure you know there is a protocol to accepting these awards. But as usual I am gonna make my own rules for accepting.

I am going to answer Marley's 7 questions and pass each award on to 4 other blogville residents. Here we go.....

Now I would like to pass the sunshine award on to:

Well it's time for me to go to bed! Wish me luck!

I can see you!

Oh furiends! What a week it has been.

So, somehow I scratched my cornea last weekend. It was really sore and my eye was really runny.
Papa called Dr.Z and they couldn't see me on Monday so he took me to "the back up" vet. They did a die test in my eye and showed Papa the scratch. Mum had to take the next day off work because I needed drops every hour for 48 hours (except overnight). He said if there wasn't improvement by thursday they'd have to do surgery then stitch my eye shut for 30 days. Mum said there was no way anyone was doing that to me unless Dr. Z said it was the only option.

Thursday Papa took me back for a follow up and they said to cut back the drops to 3-4 times a day. Yesterday we went again and they said it is still improving. I have another week of drops and then hopefully it should be healed.

The backup vet is very pushy. When Papa first took me in, my eye had been running for a couple days so my wrinkles were pretty irritated. The doc made a big show out of it and told Papa I have very serious skin issues, and something needs to be done. He gave me antibiotics for my skin even though Papa told him we have my itchies under control.(He made Papa believe the drugs were related to my eye) Yesterday, he tried to tell Mum that the skin between my toes was pink (not red) because of "skin problems" (I have white feet! What colour does he think the skin should be!) and he wants to put me on antibiotics for 4 months! Mum said she'd think about that, our regular vet seems to be ok with my skin. What she really wanted to say was that there was no way she was putting me on antibiotics for that long when my weekly medicated baths work just fine, and the reason my chin is all red is because I have been wearing the cone of shame for a week because the drops hurt like hell, and when my eye waters or when I drool it gets caught in the cone and irritates my face, and it is nearly impossible to keep dry right now, and common sense should tell him that!
At yesterdays follow-up he walked in the room and said "oh see how well the antibiotics are working he smells better already". Papa quickly responded with "No, that's because he had a bath last night". (You tell'em Dad!)
Now, I have had some problems in the past with itchies on my back caused by allergies. But Mum and Papa and Dr. Z have been working really hard to keep the itchies away. The parental units are not impressed with his pushiness! Especially since he has no clue about my past itchies, my allergies, and how Dr Z is helping us control them, and hasn't listened when they tried to tell him. This is why he will never be more than "the back up".

Well that was my week! Seems lately there is always something!

Its a dog's life

That is me sleeping in the driveway. I was so tired yesterday after our walk I fell asleep on the cold concrete in the time it took Mum to find her key and open the back door. She's a good sport though and sat out there with me while I cooled off.

What a weekend I had! Mainly, Friday was the big adventure. We went to Bailey's house for a pawty. The people sat around and had pizza and beer while me and Bailey and another dog Roxy played tag.

Mum says Roxy lives in our neighborhood but I have never met her before. She is a shepard mix, and she is just over one year old.

It was hard keeping up with her but I did my best. I banged into a couple things and even did a log roll. Papa was not impressed. He was beside himself worried I would hurt my self, or break something. And all that running really helped "clear me out". I took 9 poops!! Papa was horrified with embarrassment! Mum just kept telling him to relax and get another bag. I am a dog after all! BOL.

I had to drink A LOT of water to keep cool. And I may or may not have had an accident in Bailey's house. Now Mum was not impressed! I don't do that at home. I tried to tell them I had to go but I guess with all the commotion they didn't notice. So I marched right up in front of Mum and let it rip.

By the end of the night we were all zonked, and crashed out in the living room.

I spent most of saturday happily snoozing. Yesterday I was a little more energetic so Mum and I went for a walk and to play fetch. We didn't stay long though, I got tired pretty quickly.

Well that's all for now. Papa is home from work today. If I am lucky he will forget to put the tin foil on the couch when he goes to the gym and I can climb up there for a nice comfy nap! (They put tin foil on the couch to keep me off because I hate the sound it makes)


Friday, May 25, 2012


Well I am home!
I was very anxious to get out of there yesterday,but I was also very drowsy and slept all the way home and most of the evening.

My "procedure" went well. Turns out it wasn't my planet dog balls, or the Everlasting Fun Ball that Dr. Z was after.

I have some pills to take, and some stitches that need to come out in 10 days. I am under strict orders to rest and relax and only take short walks til the stitches come out. Oh.. And no baths! Bonus!

Thanks to all of you that sent me well wishes!
Now off to lay in the sunshine!

Call the SPCA!

Well furiends, I have decided to run away!

I don't know where I am going, but I gotta get out of here! The least of my problems is that Mum forgot my blogiversary last week. Epic fail, second year in a row!

But the worst part is.... The vet is taking all my balls tomorrow. He covered my ears when they were talking about it last week, but I still heard. I don't know why he wants them, at least I will still have all my kongs and bones.

Wish me luck!

Cousin Bailey

Hey pals, I want to introduce you to someone. Miss Gen and Miss Shannon adopted a puppy! His name is Bailey! And I think we will be very good buddies.

We had a play date last Sunday and we both needed a nap afterwards. We brought him a toy to welcome him to the pack. He got him a blue Cuz, one of my favorites!

Bailey is about 3 months old, and he has some giant paws to grow into. Mum saw him again last night and said he has grown a lot already! He is a lab mix and I think he will be a very big boy.

We had some fabulous weather this weekend! I spent a lot of time on the patio! And even now that the sunshine is fading, it's still pretty comfy out here.

A few times I even snuck up on the love seat when Mum wasn't looking. But she let me stay when she found me.

Well, I think it is time to retire! Good night!

Wednesday, May 2, 2012


So I had a great birthday! The pupcakes Mum made were scrumpdidliumpyius! I wolfed it down.

It was topped with one of my new treats, freeze dried liver bits! They are so yummy! But Mum smelled the bag and gagged. BOL!

And I got a flashing light to clip on my collar for our night time walks. But the best treat of my birthday was my new Wubba! I had so much fun playing with it. My Nonno called and he could barely hear my Mum talking over all the squeeking. BOL.

Well that was all my fun! Night night! Thanks for all the birthday messages.

It's My Birthday

Hello Furiends! It's my birthday today! I am now 3 years old.

Mum made me these pawsome Pumpkin Carrot Pupcakes with Peanut butter and yogurt on top, but I dont get to have one until she comes home from work. I am leaving pudles of drool all over the house!

I hear a rumor there are even be some prezzies for me! I'll let you know later what I got.

Sleepy Sunday

Greetings furiends, I come to you this evening from the comfort of my patio chair. While Mum sips her cappuccino and nibbles on some chocolate I get.... Well.... I get to share the blanket.

I went on a field trip today to the bank. I was well received by all the patrons, except one. He scowled at Mum.... So she took extra long at the machine.

Car trips really tire me out, so I had a well deserved nap when we got back. I was already tired from last nights disruption, for some reason Mum felt compelled to get out of bed and make pancakes at 4 am. I didn't even get a taste.

My birthday is coming In a few days, today I saw Mum hide a bag in the closet where my paws don't reach. I bet it's prezzies!

Well if you will excuse me, I have some snuggling to do, and some frogs to listen to. They really are wonderful singers.

Nighty night.

I've been sleeping all day fur buddies!

Miss Gen and Shannon came to visit last night and I was up way past my usual bedtime. We were chillin on the patio. I pulled the ultimate prank on Mum too. I pretended to have an itchy eye so Mum would get up from her chair and when she did I pushed my way in and climbed up into her spot. I was asleep before she even knew what had happened. BOL! We have some very comfortable patio chairs.

I didn't get a chance to tell you all about my Easter. The mutant bunny brought me a carrot cake bunny! It was super delish. We had all our friends over for Easter dinner , and I even got some ham and Brussels sprouts in my dinner. It was a great day.

The weather lately has been great, I have been spending a lot of time on the patio sunning myself. I feel bad for some of my doggy neighbors, I seem to be the only pup in the neighborhood who gets to enjoy their patios. One poor guy was crying so loud today that I was woken from my nap. His people locked him in the garage while they went out. He was not very happy in there. That seems to be a popular thing I our neighborhood, and my Mum does not like it one bit. She says it's no wonder their are no many noisy frustrated doggies around. It's kinda sad.

Anyway it's time for bed! So, good night pals.

Sunday, April 1, 2012


Well furiends, my Mum finally got off her ass, I mean .... She took me to play in the field. I was surprised since the day started off pretty slow.

We had a great time, and the sunshine was so nice. I had a bath last night, and as you can see my muscles were glistening in the sun.

I had the whole field to myself. And I have to admit I was a little tired after all that playing.

I forgot to tell you guys that I was invited to a dinner party last week. Miss Gen and Shannon invited me. Oh and the pawrents too.

I had such fun playing in their yard, and although no one gave me any roast beast, Papa snuck me a carrot.

Well that's all for now, I think it's dinner time!

Treachery is afoot

Oh furiends, I was too upset to tell you about my weekend until now!

Mum and I went for a walk in Cliff Park on Sunday. Normally I would have been thrilled, but I was a bit of a terror. I was teaching her a lesson for the betrayal she committed on Saturday!

See this picture! You've never seen my tied to anything for a photo! But on Sunday it was the only way to keep me in the photo.

We went to see Dr. Z for my millionth follow up. He was generally happy with me but wants to see me again next weekend..... He is VERY thorough.

When it was all over Mum started a new conversation, one which included jewel thieves and having me mutilated. Yup, they're thinking of having the boys snipped. I couldn't believe it. Even Papa was in on it.... I mean dude! Do you not know the Bro Code!? Did she already get yours or what?

Anyway I tried not to enjoy the walk, but some moments were pretty nice.

Here's to hoping they forget to make an Appointment ;)

Sunday, February 26, 2012

Mmmm sun!

Greetings furiends!
Hope you have all had a good week.
Papa has been away all week so Mum and I have been hangin out. We have had some great trips to the park, and some fabulous weather.

We went back to see dr. Z yesterday. He said my itchies are healing nicely. His crazy collie was barking his face off at me. Luckily, he was in a fenced run. He doesn't seem to mind the other dogs that were around, but he goes bonkers when I walk by. I think he's jealous of my studliness.

Today was house cleaning day so I decided it was best for me to hang outside in the sun. So if you will excuse me , I have to take a nap on the patio.

Hung Over

Oy! I am just exhausted! I can't party like I used to!

We had company on Friday! Miss Gen and Miss Shannon came over. I was up extra late and got lots of extra rubs and ear scratches. Can't wait til I get to go stay with them again.

Our neighbors were also having a party. Papa took me over to say hi to some of his friends and the dog there tried to bark my face off! I was like dude it's a party, chill out! But he wasn't havin' it, so I kept my distance .... Then I peed on his fence .... On the outside ... Ha ha sucker!

Yesterday, when the rain finally stopped, we went out and played in the park! I ran like crazy! I can't wait til summer when it not so slippery though.... I slammed into a fence! BOL! I wasn't hurt! And luckily either was the fence. Once I bumped into a fence and knocked a board off. Good thing Mum was able to bang it back into place before anyone saw. My pleasant evening was ruined though when THEY decided it was bath time. I tried to play dead but Papa didn't buy it, he scooped me up and carried me to the tub. They just don't get it.

Today I just recuperated. Mum and I slept in until 930! That's late for both of us! We kept it low key all day until our power went out. After an hour and a half Mum decided to go get us some sushi for dinner. Of course when she got home the power was back. But I actually got some sushi and it was fabulous.

Well gotta run! Mum's gettin' some yogurt out of the fridge.... Hopefully I'll get to lick the container.
Peace out homies!
