Pretty Cool Dog

Hey! Take a look at this pup! She's computerized, and she does lots of tricks:
Sit, jump, roll, cool, beg, stand, spin, dance, speak, down, kiss, wave, etc. That's all I could get her to do. I couldn't think of anymore.
Happy New Year!

Last Gift-Thanks to Gregor!

Hello! I just wanted to inform you of a package that arrived in the mail yesterday. My Uncle Gregor sent me a gift, as promised in his comment on the last post! Cool, huh?! He got treats for me, three kinds. A potato and duck kind, a dried fish kind, and a salmon kind. All the treats are natural. I love them. He also said that I'm going to get a ostrich tendon in the mail, which sounds REALLY good. I don't know what an ostrich is, but that treat sounds really good. I mean, all the other ones were good, so this one must be, too. He also sent a package of treats for Freckles, Genevieve, and Gronemeyer. It's a pink package. The treats are made totally of fish, 85% salmon. They smell good, too, but they are, "...strictly for the cats." Humans these days. I mean, the cat food, and litter box are "...strictly for the cats", too, but I eat them! Whatever, I'll let it go. Well, I have my own good treats. Thank you, Gregor! Happy New Year to you too!
The last pictures are of my canine, but not by blood, niece, Sasha. She's pretty cool. I've told you about her before. She's a German Shepard, Rottweiler, some type of setter, other stuff, but mostly Rottweiler, I think. She's a little over a year old, and she's REALLY playful. My human brother, Markus, is staying with us right now, and he owns her, and it's kind of nice to have another doggy to run with, and bite, and push around. Ok.....I admit, I always act like such a social, and pushy dog, but I'm really not. Mostly, Sasha does the pushing. Pushes me to get food, treats, attention, toys, etc. BUT, I do push her around when we play. I nip her behind, and chase her, and stuff. It's fun, and I have a real reason to use my bark, which I don't usually use. If you'd like to see more, she is on her daddy's blog today, at
Anyway, tomorrow is New Year, so Happy New Year! I'm not posting, I don't think, but my sis might. Her blog is at
Have a great day!

My Christmas Gifts

Hello, Puppers! Merry Christmas! I hope you all had a wonderful day with friends and family, and that you got a nice thing or two from under the tree standing in your living room! Can someone explain that to me? Why do humans put a prickly tree in the room, hang stuff from it, and then WRAP gifts and put them under it? I mean, the tree already doesn't make sense, but WRAPPING the gifts? The point is to get a gift and enjoy it, and by wrapping it, you're pretty much hiding it! It just wasts MORE trees by using the paper! Man, I should get the humans a book for Christmas next year titled "How to Not Waste Trees: for Dummies"....Not that that exists, but still.....
Anyway, lets move to what I got. Well, this year was very successful. Normally I get a collar and a couple extra Scooby Snacks from my human dad, but this year, oh wow, I got THREE different kinds of treats! How great is that?!? I got Canine Carry Outs, Bac'n Bites flavor, which are little strips of doggy bacon, that smell oh so wonderful, and taste one million times better (and by the smell, THAT'S saying something!), and I received all natural dog treats from a company called Wet Noses, apple pie flavor. They are from some friends of ours that visited at Thanksgiving. They have a doggy named Gypsy. Maybe I'll scan a picture of her on to show you guys her. She's pretty cool. Anyway, those treats have (according to the package) no corn, no wheat, and no soy, which is apparently not good for doggies. They are REALLY good, and they also smell scrumptious. My human sis says to tell you people (doggies, actually) that if you went by smell, she would totally be eating the treats. (luckily it says for doggies only because I want them all for myself!) The last treats were made by my sis all by herself. They are made from peanut butter and other stuff (see the recipe on my sis's cousin's blog here.) They are called Beg-ables. I never really liked peanut butter, and my sis knows that, so she was a little unsure that I'd like them. Well, lets just say they aren't my favorite. I eat them, but mainly because I figure, heck, what else can I do? It's lying there! Might as well eat it......
I hope you have a good day!

Merry Christmas!

I wish all you people who look at my blog a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! I wonder if I'll get anything in my stocking....hmmm, we'll see!
( Don't forget to stick your head in the snow and enjoy it! Sorry to all you doggies who don't have snow because you're really missing out!)

Snow-Dog-A Little Late

Woof, hello dogger-bloggers! Sorry I haven't posted in so long! I'm really busy, and my sis keeps hogging the computer. Well, let me tell you about the pictures. The first one is a close up shot of my, as you can see, BEAutiful face, I know, it's great. The second one shows me sporting my awesome Christmas collar. The third is weird, I know. I'm rolling in the snow, and then the third is me sitting up, and the fourth is just me in the snow. Well, that's all I can say, gotta go, bye!

Snow Day, Apparently

Hello! These pictures are actually from just about 1/2 an hour ago! It snowed A LOT last night, so my sister didn't have to go to school. She got up early, looked at the noisy, flashing box that the humans like to watch, and then she said "Oh, it's a snow day!", and she went back to bed for 2 hours! Peculiar, huh?!? Well, I like it. In the pictures she went out and braved the snow and took me for a walk all the way down the driveway! It was lots of fun. I'd run a few steps, cough(I'm still sick), and then bury my head in the snow for no reason! I guess I'm supposed to know why, but I don't. The pictures were taken at the beginning of the walk, just before we started. She was playing with me. It was tons of fun! I like it when she stays home.

Today is my last day of taking the one really big pill I've had to take for a week. I'm glad, because it doesn't taste that good, and it was just a nuisance. The other ones aren't as bad. I keep taking them and eating the canned food for one more week and then I'm done!!!! Yey, that'll be the day! Whoopie!!!!!! Anyway, I have to go. I think my mom and sister are going to make human treats(dog treats for humans, duh!), and I want to be there to smell them, although, of course, I'm banned from eating the delicious pastries. So, have a good day! Bye!!!

Hello, I'm Back!!!

Hello, bloggers, I'm back!!! Sorry it took so long for me to post again. Thank you so much for all your kind comments on the last post that my sister did. I'm feeling much better now. I have to have two big, fat pills twice a day, and three little green pills 3 times a day, 1/2 an hour before I eat a meal (1/2 a can of wet food). I love this new plan. I don't have to bother with dry food at all anymore! It's just canned food. Unfortunately, the cans area all one flavor, I think chicken and rice, but it's still good. I take the pills like a good little dog. Mommy wraps them in canned food, and puts it on a plate, and I eat it!!! I like it. I do miss the table scraps and treats, though. Mom said that now that we know I have such a sensitive stomach I won't get any bones anymore, and not as many table scraps :-(. I'll miss that...I do still try to cough something up whenever I get up from lying down, but we're all hoping that will go away. Well, thanks so much for all your kind words. Have a nice day!
P.S. The picture is just a random picture. It's a summer pic., because right now there's about 1 1/2 inches of snow on the ground.....yey!
