Duck Au Trois...

The other day when we were driving down Hog Hill Road ( not kidding about the name). I was looking out the window and in the middle of the road were three ducks, two males and one lady duck. One of the male ducks was doing the "do" while the other male watched.. mom and dad broke into a resounding chorus of "Why Don't We Do it in the Road". Not sure about the singing stuff, but it was good to see others from my kingdom are as obsessed about this stuff as am I.

I have been in deep doo doo the past couple of days, been kinda nutty started with the bath. Yesterday when we went out to get the paper and pee, I took off after a bunny rabbit.. did not come back for a while, that did not go over very well. Last night when we were visiting neighbors, I took off to go see Gil after mom told me not to. Then I chased Tom's car up the street. Dad says it reminds me of a book he used to read to Andre, "Alexander and the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day".. except this phase is lasting about a month.

Not sure why I do it, but the humans are P'Oed about my behavior, not sure what this is about, but this time of year makes me crazier than usual.

Commanche and I, after a whole lot of wrestling and butt sniffing

Posted by Picasa

Commanche and a Bath..

Commanche and his parents came over Saturday nite, great time, great smells(they were having filet mignon). We spent the whole time wrestling and trying to do the do.. not sure why they say that German Sheperds are so bad, Commanche is pretty cool. I was real tired on Sunday.

Wednesday mom took me for a walk to Goddard Park, we went down to the beach and I saw this beautiful Russian Wolfhound.. went absolutely crazy, knocked mom down.. ran in the water got covered with sand. We had to leave.

When we got home I was filled with sand and salt, dad had gotten home from work and they wanted to give me a bath. Tied me to a tree, and started this idiotic human procedure.. not sure why but I went crazy. Did you ever see those crazy dogs on Dog Whisperer, well that be me during bath time. Anyways after a really big too do, and a whole lot of howling they gave me a bath. They wouldn't even let me roll in the dirt afterwards.

I got them back later though, when they fell asleep I ate one of mom's mousetrapless flip flops.. payback is a.....

The humans say I have gone over the edge, with the taking the garbage out of the bathroom and stealing laundry from them. The other night I took one of mom's undergarments, and chewed on it a little bit.. wow you should have seen that reaction.. it was so easy to chew and smelled sooooo good. This along with stealing the stuffed animals of the grandkids, they have put their paws down. They went out and bought Micetraps.. and now there are these elements of torture ( I may call the DCLU) in the closets near the shoes, in the garbage cans and in the holes in the yard. They may have won this battle, but the war rages.. doggies rule.

Been a good week Andre has been over a lot, I really love Andre. He wrestles with me, takes me out to play ball when the adults get tired. I bark at him and have to go to bed a lot, but he is a blast and I like school vacation better than most holidays. And no rain for about 4 days now, everyone is happy.

Some warm and fuzzy dog stuff...

Our good friends Charlie and Rae sent me an email today and made me realize how important I am to the humans... even though they must say 100 times per day.. Tedy Knock it off...

The average dog is a nicer person than the average person.

Dogs love their friends & bite their enemies, quite unlike people, who are incapable of pure love & always have to mix love & hate.

Anybody who doesn't know what soap tastes like never washed a dog.

If your dog is fat, you aren't getting enough exercise

Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.
-Robert A. Heinlein

If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you; that is the principal difference between a dog and a man.
-Mark Twain

Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.

If you think dogs can't count, try putting three dog biscuits in your pocket and then give him only two of them.

Kennel Cough...

guess you can blame Gracie for this one, woke up the other morning with this weird sounding cough. The parents were whining about how it would cost another $80.00, but mom got on the phone and coerced the Vet to just leave a prescription.. all that cost was $3.00, we are all dancing in the streets about that one. I had wanted to go the Vet's as I had to renew the spot where I peed on the wall. I am supposed to be more quiet than usual, yea right..

Still spending some time in the car, as Pop was moved to a rehabilitation facility.. guess that is good for him, dogs are allowed, but am willing to bet that I don't get to go. Yesterday they left me alone in the house for what they said was 1 hour, not sure how these humans keep time. Anyways passed the test, hate that damned cage.

Like this spring stuff, spending more and more time outside.. so many smells and so much stuff going on.. having a great time when they are raking and doing spring clean up. Love the rake and blue tarp, that makes me crazy.

Phat Wips...

technically I don't have wips, yesterday after we picked up Andre in Mom's car they were driving and all of a sudden they noticed my wips were all swollen, my eye was almost closed. Mom called the vet, and we all went 85 miles an hour to get to the vets. When I got there peed on the wall to let everyone know I was there..

They gave me a couple of shots, and sent me home. The Vet thinks it might be a spider bite, that makes mom feel all warm and fuzzy. Mom thought I looked like a Shar Pei, Dad thought I looked like a bloodhound.. Andre thought I had golf balls in my mouth. Now I have to take benedryl for a couple of days.

Of course we got the obligatory whine about the $80.00 bill, for five minutes of the vets time and $3.00 worth of medicine.. don't they realize that I am worth it.

Won't see Aunt B for about a week, Gracie got Kennel Cough and cannot hang out for that much time.. hope she gets better soon, as Gracie is my best friend.

Pop is still in the hospital, heard he is feeling a little better.. so some good news here.. Gram is really tired as she spends a lot of time with him.

Got some real good news yesterday, dad came back from the Doctor's and said there is nothing wrong with his legs.. they are just old and beat up, so he can walk with me again.. goody, goody, goody!!!

59.4 Pounds of love...

went to the Doctor to get weighed, and am getting to be a big dude. They are going to start giving me heartworm pills, yuk.. guess that is the price you pay when you get this house.. you should see my guns.

Not much going on, the rain and northwind stopped, not that I minded, but the humans whined a whole bunch. I am beginning to like the water, and when I get wet then I get crazy and run around in circles after I come out. I do not like to swim, but I go in the water up to my butt and then stick my head in. Mom tells me to swim, but I like things just the way they are. I do things when I want to.. not when adults tell me to.

Haven't seen Andre or Devon and a while, like to be around people more my size. Now that I think of it, haven't seen auntie B or Gracie lately either. Well these things seem to change, and sure will see them soon.

Pop is in the hospital and I have spent a lot of time in the car waiting for mom and Gram.. I don't know what they are talking about, but it sounds like he is pretty sick. Hope he gets better, even though he is not all that much fun.. he is a pretty good dude.
