My New Game

I decided to play a new game with Mom today. When she tried to put my necklace on me to take me outside to potty, I attacked the necklace! It was so funny. I was just chewing away on the collar and Mom didn't know what to do at first. Then she started laughing and laughing 'cause she thought it was so funny. She had to tug to get it away from me. It's a fun new game!

Another Stupid Bath

I hate, hate, hate the bathtub! This picture shows my bad bathtub hair...

Mom decided to try to make the bath "fun" by putting in some toys. dice.

I had to keep an eye on those stupid duckies. I didn't know what they were up to in my bath water!

Puppy Poetry: My Version of Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star

While Mom and I were walking around the pond this morning, she was laughing about how I always tinkle in lots and lots of spots. All doggies know that they've got to sniff and potty where other doggies have. So, after Mom laughed about that I decided to come up with my own version of "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star." I call it "Tinkle, Tinkle While I Walk." Feel free to hum along when you read it:

Tinkle, Tinkle While I Walk

Tinkle, Tinkle while I walk
That's how doggies like to talk.

By a rock or on a tree
Those are places that we pee.

Tinkle, Tinkle while I walk
That's how doggies like to talk.

Dog Food Stinks!

Instead of giving me more hamburger tonight, Mom actually gave me my nasty old dog food instead. WHAT happened here?!?! I'm supposed to be eating the yummy hamburger...I don't want that gross, liver-prescription dog food! Give me my hamburger!

Fights and Food

My tummy is still feeling icky and I decided that I don't want to eat anything but hamburger. I haven't even wanted to eat my rice. Yesterday, Mom and I got into a HUGE argument about whether or not I was going to take my antibiotic. She kept trying to shove it down my throat (HOW RUDE!). So I'd pretend that I swallowed it and then I'd spit it out when Mom wasn't looking. She'd find it a few minutes later, though, and shove it in my mouth again. That was NOT fun. I finally just swallowed the darn thing.

Mom said that was the last antibiotic pill that I had to take, but I didn't believe her. She didn't make me take any today, though, so maybe she was telling the truth.

We went for walks around the pond yesterday and today. Mom let me walk really slowly and we rested when I wanted to. When ya don't feel good, the pond isn't as much fun.

My Doggy Cousin George

Mom told me some sad, sad news yesterday. My doggy cousin Georgie died at the doctor's office. Poor guy! She said that he had cancer in his lungs.

George and I never played together 'cause I thought he might smoosh me. He was still a really good dog, though, and he loved to play with my buddy Hossy.

Mom has been really sad, and she said that Grandma Cindy is really sad, too. Aunt Kiana, Georgie's Mom, posted some stuff on her blog about it.

Feeling Icky

I've been feeling really icky lately. I like to eat the hamburger and rice, but today that's all I wanted. Last night I didn't even feel like eating it. Today Mom couldn't believe that I didn't feel like eating my cookies. My tummy just doesn't feel good.

Mom talked to Dr. Curt yesterday and he said that the bacteria buggies were all gone! That's good news. He was really happy that we caught the infection early, before it grew enough to "inflame" things. I'm not sure what that means, but it doesn't sound good. Anyway, Dr. Curt said that he thinks the medicine for the bacteria buggies is what is making me feel sick. I'm also not taking my liver medicines 'cause of that. So he told Mom she could stop giving me the medicine on Monday and then start me on the liver stuff again. I hope that doesn't mean that I have to start eating my doggie food again instead of the hamburger and rice.

I need to take a nap now. Dr. Curt told Mom that I probably felt like I had the flu...whatever that is.

Hamburger and Rice!!!

My tummy hurts. I haven't felt good since Mom started giving me my new medicine for those nasty bacteria buggies. Today I didn't even feel like walking around the pond. Mom kept trying to get me to go, but I dug my heels in and said "NO!"

Mom called Dr. Curt and Dr. Rebecca this morning 'cause I've been acting sick and she said she was tired of cleaning up all of the runny poop outside (gross!). They said to put me on a "bland diet" until I felt better. Good news for me...that means hamburger and rice! I absolutely love that stuff. I'd eat it all of the time if Mom would let me. That stuff rocks.

The doctors also told Mom to give me something called yogurt with my rice. I wasn't so sure about it at first, but with all of that yummy rice in there, I gobbled it up.

Here are some pictures that Mom took of me last night. This is pretty-much all I did yesterday 'cause of my ouchie tummy.

More News from the Vet

Mom chased me around outside yesterday morning with a tupperware dish again. That's SO annoying. I don't know why she has to keep taking my pee-pee to the vet. She told that we needed to see if any of those nasty bladder stones were trying to come back again, though, so I guess that's o.k. I don't want any more of those stones!!!

Mom got a surprise yesterday, though, because Dr. Curt and Dr. Rebecca told Mom that I've got an infection. I haven't felt really good, but I didn't tell Mom yet. We've got a system worked out and Mom can usually tell when I don't feel good. It wasn't bad yet this time, though, so I hadn't told Mom. Dr. Rebecca said that we caught it really early, and that's a good thing.

Dr. Rebecca also said that the bateria bugs were really nasty, icky ones this time, so I've got more medicine to take. It's kinda making my tummy feel icky, though. I hope I don't have to take it for long!

Six in a Row!

Guess what! Mom and I have gone for walks around the pond now every day for six days in a row! That's unbelievable! It's been forever since we've gone for so many long walks like that.

I love the pond, but the weather's been cold and Mom hurt her back last year. She's been pretty busy with school, too. So we haven't been walking as much. Mom told me last week that we both need more exercise, though, and that we needed to start walking around the pond more. You won't hear me complaining!

We got a little wet today 'cause it was sprinkling when we started walking and just flat-out raining by the time we got home. It was still a fun walk, though. We had the pond all to ourselves!

Pictures from the Pond

Mom took me for a walk around the pond today! It was a nice, sun-shiny day, but the wind almost whooshed me right off of the sidewalk. It kept flipping my ears back, too. I loved sniffin' into the wind, though, so it was cool.

Here's a picture of me sniffin' a tree. Mom kept telling me that the branch was too tall for me to sniff, but I didn't care. She should just be happy I didn't try to pee that high.

And here's a cool shot of me lookin' at the pond while I'm wiping my feet. (This is how I usually try to fling stuff at Mom.)

And finally, we've got a nice, action shot of me walking along. Stupid leash is always in the way...
