This is the blog of a family dog named Abby in Upstate New York, who writes (in her own words)about her everyday life.

Tagged!


So...I was tagged...and I didn't even notice(I'm a LITTLE slow, all right?!!!)...and then I was tagged again...and that time I DID notice. So here is my tag.

I was first tagged by Dunja and then Markus.

Now here's the instructions:

  1. Open the sixth folder of pictures on your computer
  2. Pick the sixth picture in the folder
  3. Post it
  4. tell about it
  5. tag others.
Well, I use the same computer as my human sis, and she already did this post, so I couldn't POSSIBLY use the same picture, so I did it kinda back words....I opened the sixth folder from the bottom of the list, and picked the sixth picture from the end in the folder....so this is what I came up with.

It is my sister. On a short little horse.

She rides horses.

She thinks they are cool. And she puts up with all of them. Personally, if I was a human (don't worry...I'm purely dog) I would not ever go near a horse. Because their brains are teeny. Compared to mine, anyway, and they don't deserve my presence.

But that is just my personal opinion.
But admit it-
It's a good opinion.

Anyway, she rode that horse. It's name was Sarina. It reared a few times, but she said it was ok.
When I rear, my humans call it jumping up, and I'm not allowed to do it.

I think it's the same with horses. But that horse up there jumped up ANYWAY.

That proves it.

That horse wasn't supposed to jump, but it did, proving it's brain is smaller then mine, because it should have seen a good smack coming with the crop before it came.

Silly, ignorant pony.

So that is my tag.
I will now tag my love, Ben, and I don't have time to pick out more pups, so if you read this, consider yourself tagged.

Abby, over and up.

Helllooooo again!


Helloooooooo doggies! I'm back for a quick visit! Again....pretty much just to show you this cute picture of me. My human mommy and sister and some visitors and I went to the beach last May together and my human sis took this picture. THEN on picnik.com she changed it so everything is black and white 'cept for my collar (which is a gorgeous pink even in real life) and she added the words and the cool frame thing. Isn't this cute? I think so.

It snowed last Wednesday here...at least, I think it was Wednesday. Anyway, it snowed up here in the hills at our house a full 2 inches! And the town below us only got a few sprinkles. Phooey. But it melted quick, and now its gone. But it was funny, because one day it was fall, and the next---Winter!!! So that's my news.

I'm honored that so many of you left comments on my quick post last time. Thank you so much! I always know I have doggy friends here in the cyber world. I'm going to curl up and nap now, because it's been raining allllll day so far. You know what our dumb cat Freckles keeps doing? Going outside. And getting drenched. And drinking water off the boards on the porch. And going in. And then wanting to go back out again. She's sooo silly. Silly, silly...

Anyway, that is all I have to say today.

Except for this:

When I first came to live with the family I have now, in 2001, I was a scared-y-dog. I could barely protect myself, let alone my human companions. Guess what I am now? I'm a *dangerous* watch dog! Kinda. I keep trying to protect my sister from her horse, but it's kinda hard to protect her when she's sitting ON the horse. I bark and chase the pony, and she doesn't like that. But it's ok, she just doesn't understand. I wonder how that pony forces my sister on her, anyway? Poor sis. She doesn't realize that horse is eeeeeevil. EVIL I say! Well, maybe I only see her as eveeeeil because my sister gives her more attention then she gives me...but I'm rambling. And I know my sis loves me. So I'll let you go before I get you even more confused and bored.

Have a good, rain-less weekend, furry friends!

I'm alive!

Hello, lady and gent dogs! I'm just on for a quick visit to let you know I'm still alive and doing well. I didn't want you to worry that I was gone or somthin'...anyway, here are some recent pictures of me that my sis' took. Do you see that cute Beau dog? Well, his owner came and visited this summer in August and he's in training! He's goin' to be a guiding eyes pup! He's really cool. He's lots of fun and he's doin' well already--his owner is doing a great job! I can't wait until he's got a person to lead around, that'll show the world how cool we canines are! And he'll probably look pretty sharp, too, in his jacket...

Well, like I said, just a quick post. I hope you all are doing well! I don't even know how many of you check this blog anymore, but I thought I'd drop a note anyway. :)

I'm Still Alive

Hello, Pups! I have no excuse for not having posted since Mommy's day...All I can say is that I'm sorry. I am still alive, just have been too lazy to slide myself into the computer chair and make a post.
I DO have to wish my human Mom a HAPPY BIRTHDAY! You're another year older! YEY! ;-) I hope you have a wonderful day, and I'll try not to roll in smelly stuff and get dirty, just for today...and, what the heck, I'll through tomorrow in, too, for good measure.




I'm sorry to say it guys, but I think I have to kind of quit this blog. I'm not deleting it, but don't expect a post often. I'm sorry to do this to you...but I have to. I'll still post sometimes, and I'll read your blogs...

Happy Mommy's Day!......A Walk in the Woods....90 posts!


Hey, guys! I'm really sorry I haven't posted, there is no excuse for that, just laziness, and I'm ashamed...

Happy Mommy's Day to all the mommy's out there, human AND dog! I was thinking, what about doggies? Do dog-mom's get to celebrate Mom's day?!? I don't know my doggy mom....did she look like this? Or was that my dad? Or did she look like THIS? Or was THAT my dad? Or maybe they were both already mixed dogs, or one of them was a mix, and they had those two breeds in them? Or am I three breeds? I really don't know.... I wish I did, though. All my humans know is that before they got me, when I was a year old, I had been in two families. The first family brought me to a shelter, another person picked me up, didn't like me, and brought me back to the same shelter. When I had left the shelter the first time, my name was Liberty, the second time I went back to it, my name was Abby....I like Abby a lot more. It's cuter.

Anyway, in honor of Mother's day we (my mom, dad, and human bro) went for a walk in our woods.....and the horse. This caused a problem, see, at the beginning of the walk I wasn't on the leash and I, just for fun, ran up to the horse and barked and pretended to bite her. Of course I COULDN'T bite her, but I pretended. Well, my humans yelled at me in that most annoying way, but I blew it off and did it again, and where did that get me?!? On the leash! Do you see me in the picture?! Notice the leash? (that's my human brother holding me)....well, it ruined the walk. It was still nice, but so not cool....I cropped out me from that picture because I had this adorable face on, so here it is:


Now I must go...I hope you enjoyed your weekend, and I hope you guys have a great week to come! Bye!

Oh, by the way, from now on the time that the post is posted will not be the real time, because I can't change the time to what it is or else blogger will think it's a scheduled post time thing even though it isn't...right now it's really 6:08 PM, just so you know. :D

Sorry I Was Gone



I am back, dear puppies! I'm so very sorry that I haven't been on---in truth, I've been lazy, with spring being here now, I've been running away, making my mom drive around looking for me, making people angry, all the jazz, you know? It's a ton of fun. Anyway, on Monday this past week I went and the vet took out my stitches, so no more lampshade, no more painful paw. All that's left for evidence of my procedure is some shaved off hair. I've been living the life lately, like I said. I've also been dutifully chasing the cats, going on walks...which, by the way, aren't as fun anymore because my mom won't let me off the leash because I 'run away'...I don't get it, humans can go wherever they like to go, and no one stops them, far as I know, which isn't very far, I guess. Maybe it's because dogs don't bother to go to a room designated for going potty, and my mom doesn't want me to 'litter' on other people's property...I guess I could understand that...I guess....

The first picture is of me in a stream at our house. They are flowing wonderfully, and I'm planning an attack for one of the next hot days---I lay down in the stream and make mom totally mad...even if I'm on the leash, I can still cause trouble. Brilliant, huh? Especially since she payed money for me to get a bath at the vet...I'm just awesome...anyway, the second is taken today, yes, today, very recent, of me rolling in the clean, cool grass. I <3>

I'm Home.....with My Personal Lampshade



Hello! Guess what? I'm at home! Let me tell you exactly what happened at the vet:

Well, I got to the kennel/vet and I was already not very happy....My humans took me to the place behind bars AGAIN! And imagine, when I thought it couldn't get any worse, they gassed me and did 'surgery' and when they were done, I was wearing that big plastic lampshade thing and my paw hurt! First they had a bandage on my paw, so I couldn't see what they had done, but then they took it off, and I have string in my skin! Wow, I'm sorry, I must have just totally disgusted you...my sincere apologies. Anyway, I'm sorry, I must have disgusted you with the picture as well, but that's my paw...they took off the funny "bump"-it's not cancerous, whatever that means, they said it was a 'fatty tumor'...I'm guessing that means a bump made of fat. It's off now, and the only drawback is I wear that dumb cone...I'm so
embarrassed! I can't change it, I guess...my humans do take if off me when they can watch me to make sure I don't pull out the stitches, and I'm fine, but I have to wear it at night...well, at least it's clear! I can see! And man, when my humans picked me up, I was so happy to see them, I forgot about the cone! A human friend of mine said "The cone is the lampshade, you're the lightbulb!", and I kind of like that because people are smart when they have lighbulbs above their heads, so I take that as a compliment.
Talk to you all soon!

Hello, just a quick visit


Hello, doggies! I'm here at the kennel! They FINALLY let me on to the Internet! I had forgotten to have my human mom sign papers that I could go on, and there was a big line, so FINALLY the line died down and I convinced those people to let me on...I don't have much to say...they gave me this gas stuff to make me sleepy, and then they did something to my leg, and now my bump is gone...well, I'm assuming it is because of the slight pain and the big, humongous cone over my head...humans, humans, humans..is this hunk of plastic supposed to be a fashion statement?!? Well, I'm surviving, I guess...phase two is next Wednesday----BATH TIME! I'll show pictures...maybe, if my Benny-boy is lucky, they'll give me a cute bandanna to show off...I'll look just SO MUCH cuter! Well, I have to sign off now, darn chihuahua is behind me in line and is doing that oh-so-annoying, high pitched yap...darn dog...No offense to all you chihuahuas out there...Enjoy the picture of me in my better times, guys! Until next week!

I JUST noticed, if you look at my front paw in the picture you can see the bump...except it grew since that picture, which was taken last summer...but you get the idea.

Playing with Tennis Ball

Oh, forgot to say one thing, this is a video my sister took while she was playing with me...she did a bad job taping, she kept making it sound all windy and stuff...she says sorry. Anyway, enjoy the video!

Spring, Yogurt, and Big, Canvas Boxes




I'm here, doggies! Sorry I take so long to post! You CANNOT imagine how hard it is to get my human off the computer! But now she's off, for a minute, so I have a bit to post. First of all, Happy Spring! Spring has sprung here in our neck of the woods. We had some snow last Sunday, but it melted quick. The first picture is of me in our stream. Now that all this snow melted, we have a big stream and lots of little streams everywhere. I don't like swimming in big bodies of water, but I like the shallow stream! The second is of....*sniff*, canvas boxes. That's what they look like to me, anyway...I think they're called bags in real life, but I'll call them canvas boxes. Anyway, I know that whenever my humans get those out, I smell trouble. Whenever they come out they put tons of stuff in them, and then one morning I hop in the car, eager for a ride, but we end up at the vet's office. Yup, I think I have a kennel visit ahead of me. This happened last year, too. They went off to some warm place called Florida, and left me here to suffer. Can you believe it?! Plus, I heard that not only am I staying at the kennel, I'm getting 'surgery'. *GASP!* What is surgery? I don't think it's that nice...something about a bump on my leg that's getting bigger...anyway, the vet people are taking the little bump off my leg, and then I have to wear a-a---a cone! DOUBLE GASP! Holy wiener schnitzel! OH MY GOSH! To show all you doggies what a cone is, I borrowed a picture from another site. Here it is:


Terrible, isn't it?! I'm quite worried...but yogurt is good. That's the last picture. My mom finished a container of yogurt, and put it on the ground and said "Abby, do you like yogurt?". I was like HOLY CANOLI! I didn't even know what it was, but if my mom puts it on the ground, I'm not dumb enough to turn away from it! So that's me eating yogurt. Anyway, I have to go, I think tomorrow is the day I got the the vet's...*sigh*....I heard a rumor of a bath afterward...You'll see pictures when I get back, which is (according to my scribe) next Wednesday, the twenty-third. Talk to you then, puppers!

Actually, just so you know, my kennel does come with free Internet access, so I will be on to comment to you guys, but I can't post because they don't have pictures. :)

P.S..OH GOLLY, GOLLY, GOLLY, I just looked at Ben's post, and I have to let you guys know, I have a new boyfriend named Ben...I like to call him Benny. He's sweet, and handsome...and HE won't quit blogging, like my exboyfriend, Boomer, did. :D Talk to you soon!

I'm #1!



I know what you're thinking. Either you're thinking "FINALLY, Abby posted" or you're thinking,"HOLY WEINER SCHNITZEL, IS THAT ABBY ON THE COVER OF THAT MAGAZINE?!?". The answer to both those questions is yes. That's me on the cover. Do any of you get PetFancy Mag? Well, I don't, but while in the vets office last summer my human just happened to pick up the latest addition of it and saw a contest in it...for what you ask? YBP(Year's Best Pet). All you had to do is send in a picture of yourself(as in, a picture of your pet) and tell about it. We sent in two pictures, and told about me, and BELIEVE IT or not, I won. So, they had some professional photographer's come in and take photos of me during the seasons-last summer and this winter. The above pictures were their favorite of all...but they can't decide which one to take! OH NO! So, as soon as they decide, look for me in PetFancy magazine, as this YEAR'S BEST PET!
In the meantime, which picture would you pups have chosen for the cover?

I Mourn for the Muffins




Hello, puppers!
Do you see those pictures up there? Well, I hope so....let me tell you a story. When I was just a wee little pup my family and I lived in a different house. One day the humans did something totally innocent-they left a loaf of bread on the counter. Fine, right? I mean, where else does it go? Well, I was the type of dog that just happened to...lets say LOVE bread. So I helped myself to the loaf-potato bread, I believe....those were the days...before wheat bread. ANYWAY, I put my paws on the counter, took out two slices of bread (I didn't want to be too greedy), and took them into our living room to eat. My brother was on the computer, playing games, and he saw me....well, I got in trouble. Since then, whenever my family leaves the house, they put all the good stuff in the cupboard! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT! It's so mean! First they eat some bread-toasting it to the perfect temperature and toasty-ness, smothering it in butter and jam, or eggs...teasing me by eating it before my eyes. And then I don't get any and they hide it! Do you see the STUFF in that basket? English muffins, potato bread(which is used STRICTLY for french toast), gummy bears....and you see that last picture? THAT is how I WOULD look if they'd let me have an 'all you can eat human food buffet day'...but instead I mourn over the loss of eating muffins...if any of you dogs could teach me how to open that cupboard door, that'd be great.
Well, I have to go...nothing much else to say, so....bye!

**By the way, I have to apologize for the bad quality of the first 2 pictures. (the second was taken by my awesome human mom...figures, her's is fine) My main photographer was slacking that day, and didn't bother to notice a smudge on the camera lense. Sorry!**

Now Here's Abby with the....News? There is None.




Hello, I'm Abby, and I'm here to bring you THE LATEST news update:

.....Ok, what do I say now? Obviously it's a good thing I'm not a reporter because A)my company would make no green paper that humans like so much because B)I am the most boring dog in the world. Yes, I admit it, I'm struggling to find things to post about....I've got to tell my editor to think of the most interesting subjects about me....oh, wait, there is nothing interesting left, I've covered all 3: Sleeping, Eating, walking...Ok, so I'm blabbering a little. I'll start talking about the pictures now.

Well, the first few pictures of me are just pictures my human sis (AKA, Mrs. Editor, and now also assuming the role of Photographer) is FORCING me to post. Why? Because I look just B-E-A-UTIFUL in them....so that wasn't very modest, I realize this. Not modest at all...oh well. Anyway, the biggest reason is that for once she was the one to take the pictures of me, and they actually turned out really nice-she thinks so anyway-so she wants to share them. Her secret? Put the camera on the floor facing me and hit the button. That way they aren't shaky and you see me from my level.

The third picture is of a feline. A boy feline. A feline that lives in the barn. A feline named Gronemeyer, as seen on my sister's blog. Yes, this is Gronemeyer. What is so great about him? Well, first of all, Gronemeyer is a famous singer in Germany-oh, wait, cats can't sing. Right, I'm talking about Herbert Gronemeyer, the singer...OUR Gronemeyer is a cat. Why is he on MY dog blog? Because he happens to be my favorite subject lately, besides cat food that I'm not supposed to eat, and the horse's manure pile(which I'm also not supposed to eat). You see, he keeps teasing me. Just today I came out of the house, ready to do some exploring with my human sis, and who do I see peeking out from underneath our porch steps? Mr. Gronemeyer. So he started a game: As soon as I got nose-to-nose with him, he raced back under the stairs. I got the oh-so-fun job of standing there and feeling humiliated by the fact that the CAT tricked me. And every time he DOES let me chase him, he climbs up a tree, and then meows really *cough, choke, gasp* cutely(I don't think that's a word...I really mean cute) and makes ME look like THE MOST TERRIBLE DOG IN THE WORLD in front of my sister. Let's just say I get yelled at, sent in the house, and the cat gets 'rescued'(he got up, I'm pretty sure he can get down) from the tree by my human sis. Very nice, huh? No offense all you cats out there, but I'm totally not fond of your species.
So, that's what's going on in my life right now. How about you doggies?
Have a great time until my next post!

SCATTERGORIES

So, I was looking at blogs today and found Wanda's post-a scattergories game. Though I've only played Scattergories once, I like doing it on here (my blog). It's more fun without the timer ;-).

What you have to do is you have to copy these questions (I guess...or make some up) and instead of doing MY name, you use yours. Then, on every question, you have to answer with the first letter of your name. Ready? Here goes....oh, and you can't repeat a word, which means that since you used your name on the first one, you can't use it anywhere else. A dictionary helps, too...:

What is your name...........................Abby
4 Letter word....................................Apes
Vehicle................................................Automobile
City......................................................Albany (New York)
Boy Name...........................................Arnold
Girl Name...........................................Annie
Occupation..........................................Accountant
Something you wear.........................Abby Hair(I'm cheating there, I know...but my humans where my hair a lot!)
Celebrity.............................................Ashley Olson
Food......................................................Alpo dog food(or apples)
Something found in a bathroom........Aloe Lotion
Reason for being late...........................Alpo dog food (I had to eat first!)
Cartoon Character...............................Abby the Wonder Dog!(Does anyone know a cartoon character beginning with 'A'?)
Something you shout..........................Abbers! Come here, dog! (My humans don't normally call me Abbers, btw)
Animal....................................................Anteater
Body part...............................................Arm
Word to describe you............................Awesome...so that wasn't very modest, I know..

Ok, so I kind of cheated...ok, kind of a lot. But atleast I posted! Maybe you want to try it, if you're struggling for a post-idea..... :-)

Playing Tricks.....

video

Hey guys! Sorry it's taken me so long to post! I just gotta let you guys know first that I'm not coughing anymore! YEY! It's gone!
Ok, so I took this little video the other day. Obviously I was more focused on the bacon treat my sister was holding then doing the tricks perfectly, but maybe you'll like the video anyway. I don't have much else to say about it. Sorry I haven't posted! I don't really have anything to post about. My life is pretty boring in the winter. It consists only of sleeping, eating, and going for walks. Pray that I get a better idea for a post soon! ;-)
Bye!

I'm a Hunter!


Cute squirrel, huh? Well, how proud would I sound if I said I killed one this morning?! I KNOW, I'M AWESOME! Ok, so most humans probably won't like to hear that, but I just had to let you know. This is my 3rd squirrel in my whole lifetime. I thought of taking a picture of the squirrel I got, but I thought it'd be too gruesome for the ladies, so I just took this nice picture off google. Yes, I'm a huntin' dog. Dad didn't say it, but I'm sure he was happy-one less animal eating the bird food away from the birds! YES!
Well, just had to share my victory in a quick post. Have a good week, everyone! It's time for me to go to my bed.

I've Been Tagged! 7 Strange Things:

Well, I've been tagged by that one human named Allen. Sherman's owner. Anyway, I'm supposed to tell 7 interesting things about me. I'll do the 7 thing, but who knows if it'll be interesting! Here goes:
  1. When my humans leave to go somewhere, they turn on the radio, Family Life Network (88.9) and The Frequancy of Heaven, 99.7, so I have Chuck Swindol's, Chip Ingram's, and David Jeramiah's messages all memorized. Great pastors.
  2. I like to chase the new cats outside-the boy one is such a chicken (I like to chase those, too); He runs away from me and climbs up a tree until I leave! Baby! (literally)
  3. I never had my dew claws removed (oh so interesting)
  4. I've NEVER had to go to the vet except for the yearly checkups for being sick, until this year
  5. I was in 2 homes before my new humans got me, and my first owners were very mean to me, so it took me a long time to trust my new humans-now i'm a very nice, happy, kind pup
  6. My first owners named me Liberty, and my second ones named me Abby
  7. A lot of people think I'm a male doggy because I have a beard, and when my humans inform then that I'm a girl, they tell me I need a beard trim
Oops, I forgot to tag people. Okay, I tag Sherman, Patch, and Eddie, Peaches, and Bella. Hope to see your posts soon!

I'm Back, with a Proper Diagnosis!


Good news, people/dogs! I found out whats wrong with me! We went to the vet for a 3rd try, and they did more tests, and found out I have Lung Worms! I know, it's strange that I'm celebrating, but atleast I know now what's wrong! My humans have to squirt a gross white stuff in my mouth to "help" me. Well, I think it is helping, so I'm putting up with it.
Just wanted to let you know, my fiasco is over!
I got this picture in an email and just HAD to share it. It's the picture of the year. It's supposed to represent love, courage, and teamwork, and bravery.
:-)
Have a great week!

There's a Time for Everything-Even a New Bed!



Do you see that up there?! That's my new bed! I've ALWAYS wanted a new bed, with a fluffy pillow. Well, this bed is JUST a fluffy, comfy, soft pillow! You see, my mom happened to say this morning that they (the humans) were going to get a new bed for me. Upon further discussion I found out that it was because my mom read on some website that doggies get kennel cough because they are confined to a small area (kennel) that's dusty, and that makes them cough. So, today they went to 3 stores to find the perfect bed, and they found it! I don't get to use my cage anymore, and though I'm sad about that, I know this will (hopefully) help me get better, and come on, who doesn't want to lie on a nice, fleecy pillow?! One side is brown fleece, and the other is tan and brown striped fabric-not fleece. I like the fleece side. It took me awhile to get used to the new pillow, but I'm happy with it now! My sister is typing what I say and she says I should tell you that I'm lying spread out on my side, with my head resting (adorably, of course) on my arm/paw. I'm so cute! Well, just wanted to let you guys know the good news! Have a nice day!

Friday, February 1, 2008

Um....What do I post?!


I'm afraid my posts are getting much too boring-and infrequant. I'm still sick. I'm confused-I thought the vet, though horrible as he/she is, is supposed to work magic! Apparently, with me, it's not working. I've already been to the vet twice and got Xrays and been "scoped" and gotton medicine, and I'm still coughing. It says online that most of the time Kennel Cough only lasts about a week, and in very rare cases, up to 4 weeks, but I've had it since almost the beginning of December! I just wish I was better-this picture is of what I look like most of the time now, on good days. Some days my hair is ruffled, and I have to keep coughing. What's up with this?! I just hope I get better before summer, so I can run and play normally again...

Funny Pictures....



Funny pictures, huh? What do you think of the first one? Doesn't that cat seem to be saying "I didn't do it, I swear!" I think so. Shows that cats ARE evil creatures...oh, the nerve of them. And that second picture, isn't it cool? I wish my parents had let me see the chickens that close when they were little! Mmmmm, yumm-I mean, it's so cute! (how many of you can guess what happens next?! I bet I know! ;-))
Have a great day everyone!

Little Ol' Me....






Hello, puppers! I'm really sorry it's taken me so long to post! This will just be a quick post. Hmmm, lets see...Well, these pictures were taken by my mom last week, of me lying under the table. Unfortunately, I still have Kennel Cough, even though I finished taking all my medicine. Dumb, huh? I can't run for a long time because after a few feet I have to cough. It's terrible. Word for the day: Never get Kennel Cough. I got vaccinated for it in September, but it apparently didn't help.
The last picture was of me in the summer, and my sis uploaded it to dumpr.net under "make photos look old". It's a good photo for the effect, huh?! I like it. Anyway, I'm sorry I haven't posted, life's just busy, and I don't really have much to post about. Just snow, snow, and more snow.
Have a great week people!

My Diagnosis


Hello! This post has to be quick, because I have to post it before my sister starts complaining that I'm hogging the computer.
Ok, you all know that a few weeks ago (actually, in the end of November) I got sick, trying to cough something up and all. Well, it was better for awhile because I was eating special food and pills, but lately it got worse again. I kept on coughing, and every time I tried to run I had to stop and cough! My mom took me to the vet on Monday, and he diagnosed me with Kennel Cough. I did get a shot against kennel cough this year (its a cough I can get from other doggies at the kennel, obviously) but I got it anyway. The picture is just to fill some empty space, it's of me lying on the floor at the vets. Anyway, I got new antibiotics for it, and the special food again, because my mom told the vet that while I ate the food I didn't cough, and he said maybe it was because of my food (although, I love my Alpo) so he gave us the food to see if it helps. So, I'm feeling MUCH better, and the best of all is, I still get to eat treats! The first time I was sick I wasn't allowed to eat treats, but I can now, and I still have treats from Gregor, and Gypsy's owners, and my human sis.......Mmm-mmm good. Have a great weekend everyone!

*Sniffle*-I Miss the Love of My Life!


*Sniff*, Isn't he gorgeous?!? I know you have all been wondering where I am (ok, maybe not, but...), so I looked through my pictures to find somthing to post about and, I found-thi-thi-this! BOOMER!!! I miss you so! Why, why did you have to leave?!? He was wonderful. He's a Labradoodle, which is a poodle and a lab mix. He lived here for almost a year, and then he had to leave because his humans said so. Why didn't they bother to let us say goodbye?! I miss him. These days I remember that just last year he was here, and he spent time with me, and.....Oh I miss him! I have to go. This is making me depressed.
*Snnnnnifffffff*-Have a ni-nic-nice weekend! :'-(
