Taking baby back ....

Well, all good things must come to an end. Borrowing the baby ended just as quickly as it started and Mom and Dad had to take her back to her parents. This time they let me ride along though. I was so excited to be able to go on a car ride .... until they told me I couldn't ride in the front seat.

And they say dogs can't talk. If this isn't my "oh pleeaaassee let me ride in your lap!!" face, I don't know what it is! It didn't work though ... I had to ride in my bed in the back seat.

Here I am all curled up in the back seat. You can barely see me for my black blanket. I love this blanket. It is a down blanket and is full of feathers and smells like ducks. Mom likes it because no matter how much dog hair it gets on it, you can't see the dog hair!!! I say get over it Mom .... dogs have hair, just like people .. your's gets all over the bathroom floor, mine get's everywhere else. Get over it.

The baby had to ride in the back seat too. She had a special seat too. Here she is in her special seat. At least she has a sunshade.

Next post ... I will write about the dogs I met when we dropped the baby off. It was dog city!

More about babies ......

In addition to dropping food ON PURPOSE, babies are good for a number of other things. They will look out the window with you at the dogs next door. (They don't help you bark though.)

They will chase you or let you chase them. (Keep going baby, I will chase you in a few minutes.)
They will play with your toys with you ... that is if Mom will let them TOUCH your toys ... and you want to share of course! This is my dirty yellow armless bear and she is coming to get it. I will let her. (Don't I look distinguished with the sun on my face.)
And last but not least ... they also drop tasty spoons for you to wash. Yum.

Babies = snacks .....

Well, I had an interesting weekend this past weekend. Hershey's baby came to my house to visit me. She did not bring Hershey though, or Hershey's Mom or Dad. Just the baby came. My Mom spent all her weekend taking care of the baby and not paying attention to me. It was ok though because I found out babies in high chairs DROP FOOD ON PURPOSE to see what happens. What happens here is I EAT IT!! Thia weekend I got some random bits of vegetables (not too bad) and some bits of banana (better than the vegetables), some cheerios (pretty yummy but not very substantial) and a quarter of a cinnamon swirl bagel (SCORE)!!!!!! So everydog .... go get a baby to come to your house ............ because you get snacks.

Luckie's present ...

A month or so ago, Luckie sent me a package! In it was a pink flamingo and some of the tastiest smelliest treats a dog has ever tasted. The treats were some fishy things and my Mom almost passed out when she opened the package. I LOVED them. I would even stand in front of the pantry (where she kept them) and beg for them because I could see them ... and smell them through the package. They looked a little like bacon but tasted and smelled like fish. YUM!
The flamingo is pink and black and had rope legs and a head and it squeeked. I have to tell you about it because I would not let Mom take a picture of it because it is MINE! Here is one attempt. I am on the sofa and I am doing a preliminary operation on it.

Mom kept trying to take pictures so I moved to the recliner. I don't like the recliner because it is cold. Here my operating because a little more serious.

Mom was still trying to get a picture of my flamingo, so I jumped onto the loveseat. This is where my Dad sits so I thought maybe it would be safe. Now I can get down to business with my operation.

Thanks Luckie ..... Mom, will you please go away.

Ta Daaaaaaaaaaaaa!

Eureka!!! My mother finally uploaded a video .. all by herself! I've been trying to help her do it but she didn't think I knew what to do.

This is a video of Hershey and me (but mostly me) opening a present from Hana, my very special friend. This summer, Hana sent me a package. Mommy filmed me getting the present and opening it but she could never upload it. She didn't post about my present because she kept trying to upload the video. She wanted to get Hershey's Mom to try to help her but the baby was always needing attention ............. and anyway, it doesn't matter now because Mommy did it!

Thank you Hana for the present. Hershey and I already ate all the treats. We didn't want you to think we were ungrateful but we wanted to upload the video and thank you.

In the video you can see that it is summetime because the grass is very green and lush and Hershey's Mom talks about Hershey getting in the tomatoes. You can also see the evil net over the gate. The evil net was over the gate because I could squeeze through this one space on the left side of the gate. So they had tied an extra picket in the fence temporarily and put netting over it. They have fixed it since then.

Anyway, thanks Hana!! I loved the treats and it was way fun getting a present!!!

A dorky?

Hello dogfriends. Remember me? Mom caught her yearly 'Cold That Turns Into Bronchitis' and I have been busy taking care of her lately. She stayed in bed with me ALLLL weekend last weekend, something she only does if she is really really sick. I would say it was lovely ... all that snuggling ..... but ...... actually I was a little bored. Gheesh! A dog can only sleep so much.

But she went back to work this week and today she took me with her. I got a few treats from her boss and met a few new people. I didn't get to stroll around and explore though which is what I really want to do. I don't know why I can't stroll around. .............. PLUS she forgot the camera AGAIN! So no pictures of me in her office. Next time .... she says.

Yesterday she came home smelling like another DOG!!! I sniffed and sniffed and sniffed her shirt and after a great deal of investigativie work I was able to determine that she had held a baby puppy that was part daschund and part YORKIE! The puppy is called a 'dorkie.' I think it will look something like this. Mom told me it was really cute. A nice lady at her work bought it in another state.

On the companion front, Mom has been looking on-line at Daschund Rescue (not Dorky Rescue) and Petfinder and she even emailed a lady about it. But the lady said that someone has to come out to her house and do a Home Inspection and make sure that the house is safe for a dog ... specifically Mom thinks ..... is the laundry is folded AND put away and is the bathroom is clean? She says since those things are not in order at her house anymore because she works, and because she has been sick, that she has to keep thinking about it. No really, they check to make sure your fence is "secure" and we all know the story on that now DON'T WE? (No, I can get out through my secret passages. Bwa ha ha!) So nothing has been done on the companion front. As long is it isn't a dorky ......
