Locked in a dark room

The funniest thing happened last night. The girl went out and BLU locked herself in a dark room. She was stuck there until the girl came home. It was great! I had the entire house to myself without BLU getting in the way. I put a few of my toys right by the door so she could see and smell them, but not touch them. The only bad thing is that when the girl finally came home and let BLU out, the first thing BLU did was attack me. That wasn't very nice.

It wasn't that funny. The girl normally keeps foam stoppers on top of our doors so that we can't get locked in a room. When she leaves the house, she closes her bedroom door so we can't go in there. Last night, she thought she closed it, but the latch didn't catch. Comet was driving me nuts, so I went in there to get away from him and sleep on the girl's bed. Comet kept coming in and bugging me, so I tried to slam the door on him. Sometimes I actually catch him, but he doesn't get hurt because of the door stoppers. This time I slammed the door and it closed all the way. Luckily Comet was on the outside of the door and not stuck in the room with me!

It wasn't too bad being stuck in the dark. I slept most of the time, and a little light from outside and under the door was in the room. It wasn't scary at all. Plus, I didn't have to deal with Comet. It was actually quite nice. I was happy when the girl came home and let me out though, because I really had to pee!

ps. The girl used to put a towel over the doors before she bought these stoppers from PetsMart. She found them about a year ago, but hasn't seen them there lately.

Bye bye tree.....

Chopping up the broken part of the real tree yesterday made the girl want to get rid of the Christmas tree too. This morning she started on a mission to take down all of the lights, decorations, and even our cards.
The good news is, she is also packing up the ribbon necklaces. Yippeeee!
We want to thank all of our friends from DWB, the Eskie Board, and other friends of ours and the girl's for making this a wonderful Christmas with all of your festive cards. We really appreciate how much time and creative talent went into some of the cards. Some of you set the bar pretty high for next year! A couple more cards trickled in yesterday, and we think there may be a couple more still on the way, but this is what the girl is giving us as her final count:
Comet and BLU = 56 cards
Comet, BLU and the girl = 24 cards
The girl = 21 cards
Grand total = 101 dalmations! .... oops 101 cards!
And we still won! :-)

Somebody broke our tree!

Yesterday while our girl was at work, there was a very loud noise. Comet and I ran to the front door and saw big branches from our tree in the road. Somebody broke the tree!

We were worried that the girl would blame us once she came home from work! It was almost dark when she got home, and her neighbor came over to tell her that a big truck smashed into the tree and didn't even stop. He helped her pull the branches out of the road and onto the lawn.

This morning the girl got up early. We got all excited because we thought she was going to take us for a walk. Instead, she locked us in the house and went outside to chop up the tree parts. The neighbor came over and helped her cut the biggest pieces. I thought she should have taken a picture of it, but she was so focused on getting rid of the tree that I guess she forgot. At least she didn't blame us for it!

Now the girl is really tired from chopping the tree. We still want to go for a walk, but the girl said she is really tired and we will have to wait until this afternoon.

Christmas eve trip

The girl got what she deserved for being such a grinch.
On Christmas eve, she took us out for a walk before she went to visit her friends for dinner.
During the walk, BLU and I saw some mud in the road, and wisely walked around it. I don't know what the girl was looking at, but it wasn't the road. She walked right through the mud.

It was really funny. The mud completely covered her shoes, and when she tried to walk, her shoes were really slippery. She slid around like she was ice skating. It was funny, so BLU and I decided to run to see if we could pull her. It would have been really cool if she could have kept her balance. Instead, she just belly flopped face first into the sidewalk.

She didn't move for a while. I got really scared and licked her face. I think it was BLU's bad breath that finally made her move. Another lady out for a walk offered to help my girl get up, but my girl said she was ok. After a while, she got up off the sidewalk and scraped a bunch of mud off her shoes so we could go home. The rest of the walk wasn't very fun after that.

Our girl was ok though, since she had no problem going to dinner with her friends and leaving us home.

The Grinch Stole Christmas

Oh wait, the grinch isn't that mean. The girl is!
Other than our two presents from Rory and Matthew, we got nothing for Christmas. Nothing. Nada. Zip. Zilch. Zero!
Not even a lump of coal!!! I know I've been a little naughty this year, but come on, nothing?? Something is very wrong in the world!

Well, it's not quite true that we got nothing. We just got nothing from our girl. In addition to the pressies from Matthew and Rory, the girl's friend Christine gave us two presents. She gave us a glow in the dark ball, and a tooth scrubber. I want the ball, and I think Comet needs the tooth scrubber. I'm not sure why, but the girl wouldn't let us play with them. She showed them to us, then put them away. She didn't even take them out of the package. That really isn't right. Just because she doesn't like getting gifts doesn't mean that we should also have to suffer. Christine gave them to us - not to the girl! We should get to play with them. I don't care if the girl was upset that we destroyed Rory's toys in less than 10 minutes. These toys look like they would take at least 30 minutes!

We hope all of our doggie friends (and fufu) had a very merry Christmas and got lots of toys and treats. Hopefully you live with somebody nice and not a grinchy girl.
Love, Comet and BLU

Early Christmas presents

This week has been really exciting. Lots of people have come over to visit our girl. Sometimes she let us visit with her, but most of the time she locked us out in the back yard while the people were here. That wasn't very nice of her. We like guests too!

Last night, the girl was going to go to a Festivus party. She was in charge of bringing the aluminum pole. As she was getting dressed, the annoying phone rang again. I heard her tell somebody that they could come over. I hope we get to stay in the house this time.

The girl's friend Rory and his son, Matthew came to visit. I don't think Rory should be allowed in the house any more, but Comet really likes him.
Comet wants to add..... "I like Rory. On the first night I came to live with the girl, Rory watched me while the girl ran out to get Chinese food. Rory let me pee on a chair. That was fun. Rory is so cool for letting me do that!
Anyway...... Matthew brought us toys for Christmas. That was really nice of him. We each got one, and right away tried to rip them apart. We jumped all over Matthew and gave him lots of slobbery kisses. Comet pretended to kiss Matthew, but was really trying to steal his glasses. The girl caught him and made him stop.
Matthew and Rory didn't get to stay long, because the girl needed to leave, but it was fun while they were here. After Matthew and Rory left, the girl took away our presents! Not fair! She never lets us eat stuffed toys when she isn't around.

Hana - friend or foe?

Dear Hana,
I used to think you were very nice and cute. You may still be cute, but you certainly are not nice!

You are no longer my friend.

You did a very mean thing to Comet and me. You let your person teach our girl how to make ribbon necklaces. I can't even begin to tell you how cruel that was. What did I ever do that was so mean to you? At least when the girl put silly hats on us, we could knock them off. But these! Yikes!

Do you know how many people stared at us while we were out on our walk today. It was so humiliating. I don't think I can show my face in public ever again.

Your former friend,
I almost was going to side with BLU, but you did such a good job of making her mad that I like it! It takes a special kind of evil to upset BLU that much. Congrats! Anyone who can make BLU cry is a friend of mine!

Plus, I think the ribbons are kind of cute. Not terribly masculine mind you, but they are festive.
Lots of people stared at us because we were lookin fine! F.. I.. N.. E.. FINE! People were oo'ing and ah'ing over us. I liked the attention! I felt like a celebrity, being hounded by puparazzi!

Your best friend forever,

ps. I think BLU was just jealous that my ribbons were prettier! hehehehehe

My girl likes to eat Fritos.
She likes the smell of Fritos.
She likes to lick salt off Fritos.

She says my feet smell like Fritos.
I like the smell of Fritos.
I like to lick Fritos.
I like to lick my feet.
They taste salty and smell like Fritos.

The girl yells at me for licking my feet!
I don't understand my girl at all.
Why doesn't she want me to lick my yummy Frito feet?
Maybe she wants to lick my feet.

Food fight!

I don't like this. I don't like it one bit. Comet and I had a nice system down at dinner time. The girl would put food in each of our bowls, then we would each take a bite or two, then switch bowls to taste the other's food. Since they tasted the same, we would eat as much as we wanted, then save the rest for later, nibbling throughout the day.

A few weeks ago, the girl started messing with our system. She bought me a new food, but Comet got to eat the same food. I don't know why she did this. I like the old food better, and Comet likes the new food better, but she won't let us switch. It just doesn't make sense.

I keep looking at her and begging for the new food, but she just says that the vet told her I needed special food. I don't like my special food. When the girl puts down my bowl, I right away run to Comet's and he runs to mine. The girl switches it on us, and Comet and I try to eat out of the same bowl. I'll tell you this, one bowl isn't big enough for the both of us. So we fight.

The girl thought she was being clever by putting our food into different kong toys, but Comet and I switch toys when the girl isn't looking. Instead of letting us have our way, the girl switches it back. It's not fair, I tell you. It's just not fair!

Boo's boo boo

When the girl came home from work today, the front curtains were off the door. At first she thought Abby came over to play again, but that isn't what really happened.

The curtains fell down when I tried to attack the mail lady through the door. Normally I just bark at her, and sometimes body slam the door. But today, I knew something was wrong. Sure, she left me a big pile of cards (and many from our friends in Asia!).

Normally that would be a good thing. But we've been waiting and waiting and waiting for the card from Boo.... and the mail lady only gave us half of it! I tried to stop her from keeping the rest of it, but the darned door got in the way. At least the best part of the card is still there. Boo's handsome face.

We got cards from lots of our other friends too. I would write more about them, but the girl is impatiently tapping her foot. Something about checking her email before going to bed. People!

Cold is good

Our girl doesn't understand that it's winter. I wait all year for it to get cold outside, and in Phoenix that isn't very often. Since it doesn't snow here, the least she can do is let me enjoy the cold. But what does she do? She comes home from work and turns up the heater so hot that I pant! Then she closes the doggie door at night so I can't go outside and lay on the cold porch. There is something seriously wrong with her. I need help from all my northern friends to convince my girl that cold is good!

Tree decorations

The girl finally put the decorations on the tree. I've already pulled a couple off and tried to chew on them, but she caught me and yelled at me. I guess I will have to wait until she leaves the house to go to work or out with friends. Then I can taste all of them that I want to without her interrupting me.

We also got two more cards today. Hana was very cute in her card. So was Sophia, and we could tell that she worked very hard when she made her card. It was very pretty.

We added these cards to those that we got yesterday from Tin Tin, Copper and Hershey, Salchicha and Lilly, MJ, and Mackie and Ollie. When she added the new cards, the girl realized that all of them weren't going to fit on top of the fireplace. She used some sparkly beads to hang the cards from. They are closer to me now, so I can see them better. I just hope that Comet doesn't eat them!

Cards cards and more cards

Today the mail lady was very busy. She brought lots of cards for us. My girl is still trying to figure out where to put them so that Comet can't eat them. Right now she has them on top of the fireplace. I'm not sure what she will do with them once we get a lot more!

Today was very exciting because we got cards from lots of our friends. Joey and Tanner had a great card (love the tongue!). Isabella looked very cute, as always. We got a very funny card from Holly and the furry five, and an adorable card from the Fleas Gang.

Boomer, Annabelle and Snickers sent us a cute postcard, although Comet growled at the picture of Turbo Kitty. To top it off, we received a lovely handmade card from Lillie and Angel Daisie, with pictures of their people. Such cute kids. They look like they would be fun to jump on and lick! This is going to be our best Christmas ever!

States of matter

Comet is so gross. There is always one of the three states of matter coming out of him.
And now Gas!

He's been walking around the house all day long farting. Each time he lets one rip, he quickly turns around to look at his butt, like a giant bug just crawled out of it. It is soooo disgusting. We were wrestling and I tried to bite his tail, and he farted right in my mouth. Sniffing butts is ok. Face farting isn't! Does anyone want to adopt "Mr. Stinky"?

I don't know what BLU's complaining about. My farts might be loud, but they don't stink......too much!

Crystal come home!

Crystal come home! Your crazy friend came over to our house today and look what she did to me! What kind of people do you know?

Oh, where are my manners. My name is Jazz. I don't know Comet and BLU, but I know their girl. I have played with her a few times.

My person Crystal is on vacation, so BLU's girl came over to visit me today. At first it was really fun. I handed her my squishy ball and we went out back and played with it. She would throw it and I chased it. We did that over and over and over again. She didn't even mind that I took breaks to drink water and the ball came back slimy.

After I got tired, we went in the house so I could rest a little bit. That girl went out to her car. At first I thought she was leaving, but then she came back inside. Hooray. I have somebody to play with for a little longer.

When she came back in, she had weird things in her hands. They smelled like dogs that I never met before. I guess that would be Comet and BLU. Then that girl put the silly things on my head. At first I tried to get them off, but she kept putting them back on. Finally, I decided to cooperate. Maybe if I let her see me in them, she would take them off quicker. As you can see, she captured one of my most embarrassing moments on film. I sure hope Crystal doesn't see this. She will never let me live it down.

After making me wear the stupid hats, that girl called Crystal and I got to hear her on the speaker phone. I was going to say hello, but the rawhide was just too tasty to ignore.

That girl played fetch with me for a little while longer, then she left. She told me that she would come back. That will be fun. Provided she doesn't try to dress me up again. Come home soon Crystal. I miss you.

Ahhh.... we wondered whose smell that was! Our girl came home smelling like another dog. We've smelled that before, but never saw who it was. At first we were mad that she was playing with somebody else, but when we found out that Jazz had to wear the hats, we had to laugh. We don't care if our girl plays with other dogs as long as she makes them wear the dumb hats!
Comet and BLU

A new tree

Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree,
I really want to mark you
Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree,
I really want to mark you
It’s silly to have a tree
On which the girl, won’t let me pee
Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree,
I really want to mark you.

Our first cards!

Today we got our first cards.

We got a beautiful postcard from Freda with a nice alliteration. At first I thought I might need glasses, but then realized that it was Freda that was foggy, not my eyes! Comet ran up and grabbed it from the girl and wouldn't let me look at it again.

We got another card all the way from Australia! That's very far away. Our girl likes to travel to far away places, but the closest she's been to Australia is New Zealand. Maybe eventually she will visit Australia too. I just hope we can go along on that trip.

It was a bit of a challenge getting the envelope open. The glue was really strong. Comet finally bit a corner open and then the girl could help us get the card out. It was from our friends Opy and Charlie. They had on such cute bandanas. I wonder why our girl never lets us wear bandanas?

Comet had a hard time opening it up to read the message. Freda's card was easy, because it was a postcard and we could just flip it over. Opy and Charlie's card was harder. I think Comet had it upside down, because he ended up chewing a hole in the corner, instead of just lifting up the corner.

I would have felt bad if I broke the card, but Comet didn't seem to care. He claimed that it tasted yummy - like Opy and Charlie drool. He bit a hole in Freda's card so they would match!

Thank you for the wonderful cards. I think the mail lady is going to be busy for the next few weeks.

Return to Sender

We sent our Christmas cards out last week,
The mail lady put them in her sack.
When she came this afternoon,
She brought one of our cards back.

She wrote upon it:
Return to sender, address unknown.
No such number, no such zone.

Our friends received them,
In Canada, Asia, and UK
But not Joey and Doofus,
Who live just 10 miles away!

We want the girl to take us
to put it right in their paw.
But she doesn't want to seem like a stalker
And get in trouble with the law.

Return to sender, address unknown.
No such number, no such zone.

I learned three very important things today.

#1 - Even though it looks like it, the object marked A in the picture below is NOT A BALL!

#2 - Even though B and C smell the same (yummy), they do not taste the same!

#3 - I have a very mean girl to let me figure out #2!!

Buried Alive!

I love weekends. When my girl pulls all of the sheets off the bed to wash them, I play a fun game with her. I jump in the middle of the bed and refuse to move. She pulls all the sheets off and wraps me in them. Then BLU jumps on the bed and attacks. It's pretty fun.

When she tries to put on the new sheets, I like to jump back on the bed and get in her way. Usually she uses her mean voice and tells me to get off. Today she put the sheets on the bed - right on on top of me! And tucked them in! I wasn't about to let her win this game, so I didn't move. Then she added another sheet. I refused to move. Then she added the comforter. I felt like I was being buried alive. It was really hard to get out. The girl didn't even help! She just laughed and laughed and laughed. That game wasn't so much fun after all.

Friday, November 17, 2006

They're here!

Yesterday afternoon, the mail lady brought a box to the door. My girl wasn't home and I had to watch the box for 2 hours. I didn't want anyone to steal it because our Christmas cards were in it.

Once the girl got home, she opened the box and showed us our pictures. We were really cute! We spent last night stuffing and licking envelopes. The glue tasted pretty yucky, and after a few licks my tongue got really dry. It wasn't as much fun as I thought it would be.

BLU wet the envelopes the hard way. I found a better way to get more of them wet at the same time. If you get a card that's a little yellow, that one is from me. hehehehe

Hamburger or Hotdog?

Yesterday the girl found my secret hiding place for Comet's toy. It was funny that it took her so long to find it. I'm very good at hiding things.

Once she found it, Comet showed how greedy he was by hogging both toys. Did you see his face? What a psycho! He wouldn't even let me get close to either of them.

I think I should steal one of those toys in the middle of the night and hide it again. Or maybe I should mail it to one of my new friends, like Peony Stormrider. Only I'm afraid that he would lose it in all the waves he plays in.

Joey and Hana were trying to figure out whether the toys were hamburgers or hot dogs. My girl has always called it a hot dog, even though she thinks it is weird to have hot dogs with sesame seeds on the bun.

Here it is next to my hamburger toy. Help me decide. Hamburger? or Hot dog?

Seeing double

The girl found my lost toy!
I'm so excited I don't know what to do.

Now I have two of them.

Which should I play with?
The old one or the new one?
I love them both.

Sunday, November 12, 2006

What's the meaning behind your name?

Yesterday, Hana asked why my name is always spelled in capital letters. I think it's because my girl has serious mental problems. My girl would disagree.

Because I'm a chow (mix) I have a pretty blue tongue. As it would turn out, my girl is a science geek, and spent several years doing research on a virus called bluetongue virus. Don't worry, that's not what caused my tongue to turn blue. An annoying biting gnat spreads that disease to cows, sheep, deer, and similar animals.

So scientists don't have to write such a long word all the time, bluetongue virus is shortened to BLU (in all capital letters). Instead of naming me Blue like the color, or Blu like some other dogs, she named me BLU to make sure that it was always the virus! I think it is just plain rude.

She thought it was clever, especially when my former best friend Tequila was still alive. Most people thought Tequila got her name from the alcohol, but she really didn't. Tequila had to go to the doctor for hook worms when she first moved in with my girl. The girl started calling her "wormy butt dog" and "little miss wormy bottom" before she picked out an "official" name. A little bit of common sense hit the girl and she was smart enough to realize that once the doctor fixed Tequila, the name wouldn't be appropriate anymore. Being the dork that she is, my girl almost named her Ancylostoma, (see a scary picture here) but decided that it would sound dumb calling her that. Instead, she decided to think of something else that had a wormy bottom. A bottle of tequila popped into her brain (even though it should have been mezcal), and hence the name. She had two dogs named after parasites! Hmmphf. I wonder if that's what she really thought of us!

How did everyone else get their name?

Why Comet?
The girl wasn't quite as obnoxious when naming me. At first she was going to abandon her science/parasite theme. She thought since BLU was named after the color of her tongue, maybe she would name me Pink, since that's the color of my tongue. Luckily a few friends of hers told her that she couldn't call a boy dog Pink. She thought about making it a bit darker and calling me Red, but decided that her "logic" would take too long to explain to people.

She ended up sticking with the science geek theme, but at least I'm not a parasite! Because Snowball and other snow related names are common for my breed, she wanted something a little less obvious. The girl tried to think of something that looked like a blur when it moved, had a long tail, and was snowy. A comet fit that description and still tied to her "science theme" of dog naming.

The worst part is that she calls me strange things related to my name. Sometimes instead of calling me Comet, she calls me Commie (maybe she still thinks of me being red). Other times, she will sing my name and call me "Comet Comet Comet Comet Comet Chameleon. You come and go, you come and go". I'm never sure what to do. Should I stay or should I go?

But the worst one is when she sings that Comet song to the tune of the Colonel Bogey March. I think they screwed up the words where she grew up, because other people sing it with the words green, gasoline, listerine, or something similar.

Comet, will make your teeth turn blue
Comet, will make you poo poo poo
Will make you vomit
So try some Comet, and vomit, today

How did your people sing this song?

Are there strange things that your people do to your name?

Cable Guy

My girl didn't believe me when I said that I fixed the internet so she called the cable guy to come fix it again. It was very exciting when his truck pulled up because I thought I would get to play with somebody new. No such luck. She locked BLU and me in the bedroom. We could stick our noses under the door and snort at him, but couldn't see him at all. The internet does seem to work better though.

Now I can read all of my friends' blogs and find out what fun things they did today. I can also shop online to find some fun Christmas cards to send to my new friends from Dogs With Blogs. Every day I bark at the mail lady because she never brings me anything. Hopefully soon BLU and I will get lots of Christmas cards from our new friends. ~~Comet

Logging on

The girl broke the Internet! I've tried to update my blog a couple of times this week but each time I start typing I lost my connection.

It is very frustrating because I'm so exciting and have so much to say.

Today I got tired of waiting for my girl to fix it and took matters into my own paws. I think I finally got it to work.

Now, how do I keep my girl from touching the computer again? Any ideas?

Sikh Parade

I was taking a nice nap, when I heard strange noises. There was a deep thumping noise, over and over again. Instead of going away, it just got louder and louder. I looked out the window and saw men carrying big knives and wearing orange dresses. I didn't think they belonged on my street, so I ran and got the girl, and barked until she went outside to look. After the men walked past the house, a bunch of other people went past. All of them were wearing really bright colors. There was also a man on a big platform who was wagging a big fluffy thing in his hands. At first I thought it was Comet's tail!

Even though I tricked him into eating Giardia yesterday, I didn't really want him hurt, so I hope they didn't cut off his tail. Nope. I just looked. His tail is still there. Whew!

The girl went out to take a few pictures, and the people gave her a bottle of water. When she came back in the house, I heard her telling a friend on the phone about the Sikh nagar kirtan (public procession) to celebrate Guru Nanak Dev Ji's birthday.

Usually I just have joggers and people walking their dogs go past my house. What a treat today!

Giardia attack!

I was reading Ender's blog and he isn't feeling well either. His tummy is upset and he's been throwing up lately. Yuck! I hate it when I get sick. His doctor tested him for Giardia and other parasites. I don't know what they had to do for the test, but I hope his people didn't try to hold a cup under him every time he went to the bathroom.

My girl must have got what she needed, because she stopped chasing me around with the cup yesterday morning. Good thing too. It was just plain weird!

Since Comet kept getting in the way when my girl chased me with the cup, I found a way to pay him back. I told him I had a fun toy, but I really made him eat Giardia! hehehe. I hope he gets sick and the girl has to chase him with a cup!

This morning, instead of opening the doggie door like normal, the girl put BLU on a leash and took her in the back yard. I followed, wondering why I didn't get the leash too. Then, when BLU started to pee, the girl stuck a plastic cup under her. BLU didn't like it, but some of the pee made it into the container. The girl let go of BLU's leash, and I ran up, and peed in the container too! It was fun! The girl got mad and dumped all of it on the ground. Then she went up to the house.

BLU ran in the house. I was busy peeing on the ground and didn't notice why BLU ran so fast. When I finished marking my spot, I looked up to head into the house and the mean girl sprayed me with the hose. I hate the hose! I did not deserve that one bit!

Chased by a cup

I don't know what is wrong with my girl. Yesterday after she got home from work, she listened to the message machine and then started acting weird. Every time I went outside, she chased me with a cup, trying to catch my pee. That's just not right! A girl should be allowed to squat in private. I let her know what I thought of that, and promptly got up and trotted away. I would rather hold it than pee in a cup! YUCK!

I don't know what BLU's problem is. I think it would be fun to try to pee in the cup. While the girl was chasing BLU with the cup, I was chasing the cup. I lifted my leg a few times and started to aim, but the girl wouldn't let me. I thought it looked like a fun game.

House to myself!

Woo hoo! I got the house to myself! All to myself! No girl! No BLU! Just me!

The girl came home early today and put me in the crate and locked the door. Hmmm, something was up because she usually doesn't lock the crate.

Then she got out BLU's leash. Hey! That doesn't seem right.

She took BLU outside. I barked because I wanted to go too! The girl came back in the house without BLU. I didn't see BLU out front. Where did she go? How did the girl make BLU disappear?

I heard the girl open the biscuit container and toss a few biscuits around the house. They thumped as they landed. How many was that? 4? 5? 10? Oh, this is so exciting!

The girl opened the door to my crate, handed me a biscuit, and told me to be good. She left and locked the door.

I think she drove the car, but I didn't really pay attention. I was trying to find all the biscuits. After I found a couple of biscuits, I realized that both the girl and BLU were gone. I wasn't sure what to do. I've never been alone in the house before.

I ran to check the bathroom - the garbage can was empty so I couldn't do that for the girl. The toilet paper was up too high for me to reach, so I couldn't decorate the house. I jumped on all the furniture, but that wasn't fun without BLU chasing me. I spent more time looking for biscuits, just in case one was still hiding. Finally, I just went into my crate and waited for the girl and BLU to come home. Staying home alone wasn't quite as much fun as I thought it would be.

They weren't gone very long. BLU told me that she had to go to the doctor and get poked by a needle and a thermometer! Still, she got to go for a car ride.

I think the girl knew I was upset. She got my leash and took both me and BLU out for a walk. That was fun!

Doctor visit

I was so excited today. My girl came home early from work and got out my leash. What a wonderful surprise. I'm going to get to go someplace fun. I hope it is PetsMart! Since the duck is dead, I want to pick out another new toy.

Even better yet, I don't think Comet gets to come with me. That means I can pick out the toy I want and not the one he wants. Before my girl got out my leash, she told Comet to go in his crate and locked the door. Usually he jumps and makes it difficult for my girl to put on our leashes.

Once I had my leash, the girl opened the car door, let me in, then closed the door. Then she ran back in the house. I bet she went to get more money to buy me more toys! She came out a minute later and we were off for a ride. After a few minutes, we pulled up to a place that was NOT PetsMart. Hey! I remember this place. This is the doctor's office! I don't like this one bit.

The girl took me in and they tried to make me get on a scale. How rude! Asking a girl her weight is like asking her age. It just isn't good manners! I refused to get on the scale. My girl picked me up and put me on it! Hmmmph!

Then I went into the room to see the doctor. I heard the girl telling the doctor something about my hair thinning out. The doctor agreed that it looked a little thin, but only after taking my temperature. I'm not even going to tell you where they put that thermometer! How rude!

The doctor took me in the back room, then scraped some of my skin to check for mites, and took some blood for tests. At least they had the courtesy to give me a pedicure while I waited. The doctor told the girl that I didn't have mites or fleas, and it would be a couple of days before the blood test was back. I hope I pass the test!

I don't know how much it cost, but on the drive back, the girl kept calling me "expensive dog". It must have been my pedicure!

(Un)Lucky Ducky

The girl got us a toy today. Notice, I said "a" toy. Not each of us a toy. Just one toy! What was she thinking?

Because we like catching big birds in the back yard so much, she got us a big stuffed duck, that made quacking noises when you bit into it. It was so cool. For about 10 minutes! Then I bit the quacker and made it stop working.

Comet and I had a hard time deciding who got to kill the duck. I grabbed it and ran away with it. What a fun duck to kill. I shook it, and tossed it, and jumped on it, and chewed on its wings and neck. During my turn with the duck, I was able to chew a hole in its back and start pulling out some of its guts (err... stuffing).

That was pretty fun.We both took turns grabbing it by the neck and shaking it. Every time I would throw it in the air to play with it, Comet would run in and try to steal it away from me. Sometimes he was quick enough and grabbed the duck.

Once Comet grabbed the duck, he would chew on it for a while. He liked to try to chew a hole in the beak so he could pull the brains (stuffing) out of it. He does the same thing when we catch real birds in the back yard. He likes to bite the beaks. He's so weird.

When he got tired of chewing on the duck's head, he would start running around the house playing with it, tossing it in the air. Then I would jump back in and steal it from him!

Sometimes we both tried to grab it at the same time. If one of us growled, the girl would get mad and take it away. Comet and I eventually learned to take turns, so that way the girl didn't stick it in the closet.

We played with it for about 2 hours, and then all of the guts were gone. It's not fun to play with anymore, since there is nothing to chew on. Kind of like with a real bird. It's fun at first, but then when it stops fighting, it just isn't fun any more.

Dorky Halloween hat

The girl decided that BLU looked evil in the horns so she would get to wear them on Halloween. I was so happy. I thought I lucked out and wouldn't have to get dressed up in something stupid for Halloween. No such luck!
The girl bought me this dorky hat. In this picture it is hard to tell, but there is a strip of purple feathers and a purple bat on the top. What were they thinking when they designed this!?!

Tell me this. Who puts a witch's hat on a boy dog? BLU should be wearing this if anyone. And I don't think anyone should be subject to this hat. Not even a rat! Even Fu Fu's Pumpkin Head was less humiliating than this!

I told that to the girl, but she didn't care. She insisted that I wear it. Forget it! A guy has to maintain some sense of dignity. This hat is coming off. NOW!

Now that I got this dorky thing off my head, I need to rip it into tiny pieces before the girl can grab it back and put it back on me. Take that, ugly hat with the purple bat!

Trick or Treat!

What do you think of my scary face? Do you think the trick or treaters will think twice about knocking on my door?

The girl got me these horns as a Halloween costume. Usually, I think it is rather humiliating to have to put on silly little hats for holidays, but this one is pretty cool. She made Comet try them on, but he just looked normal to me - he usually hides his horns when the girl looks at him, so she thinks he's cute and sweet. I live with him all day while she is at work and know better!

On the other hand (paw??), I'm very very sweet and never do anything naughty! So when the girl made me put on the horns, I knew it was because it was for halloween, and she wasn't saying anything sinister about my wonderful personality.

My girlfriend's back....

and there's going to be trouble.....

Abby came to visit again today while the girl was at work. I was so excited when she thumped her tail against the front door. I even showed her my brand new toy and started squeaking it for her. She wanted to play with it, but the darned door got in her way. I did my best to open it for her, but all I managed to do was pull the curtains off the door.

My girl wasn't happy to drive up to the house and see me standing in the door, without any curtains. I don't know why. I have a much better view of the road this way. You wouldn't believe how many people walk past the house all day. It's very exciting.

After the girl was in the house, she scowled at me, rehung the curtains, and then put these things on my head. I didn't like them, but she just laughed and told me how perfect they were for me!

It's back, it's back, it's back!

I had a hot dog squeaky toy that I loved. The girl got it and the yellow squeaky ball for me at the same time when I first moved in with her. Those are my two favorite toys in the whole world!

About a month ago I lost the hot dog. I looked everywhere for it, but couldn't find it anywhere. Today the girl gave me a great surprise. She brought home a new hot dog just like the missing one. I was so happy I started crying the second I saw it.

I bit into it. It sounded just like the old one! I started to cry again. The girl didn't understand why I was crying, but I was just so happy I couldn't help it!

I've been playing with my new toy all day. BLU is getting cranky, but I think she is just jealous because I got a new toy and she didn't.

Make it stop!

That sound is going to drive me nuts! Comet has been squeaking his new toy all day long. And I mean ALL DAY LONG! Sure, he stops for about 5 minutes every hour to run outside and bark at something, but otherwise all I hear is squeak, Squeak, SQUEAK! And on top of it, he is whining as he is squeaking it. How much more does the girl expect me to take? I hid this toy before, I can hide it again! And if he doesn't stop soon, I will!

Lesson learned? Of course not!

My friend Hana asked if I learned a lesson after begging for chicken curry. I was going to respond that the only thing I learned was that my girl was mean. Really mean!

On Friday, she was super mean. She put beef, mushrooms, wine, and onion soup into the crock pot and let it cook all day while she was at work. Do you know how good that smelled? And not for just a half hour like normal cooking, but ALL DAY LONG!

It took all I could do to not jump up on the counter and take a taste. But then I worried that it was a trick. That it would burn my tongue again like the chicken. When she came home, I couldn't help myself and I begged for some. BLU told me not to, but I did anyway.

Then, the girl did something really nice. She filled BLU and my bowls with our normal dinner, then scooped some of the gravy from her food on top. WOW! It was as yummy as it smelled! I can't believe how nice my girl can be sometimes!

Be careful what you wish for

The girl cooked chicken with red curry tonight that smelled really yummy. When she walked out of the kitchen, I tried jumping on the stove to grab it, but she put it on the back burner so I couldn't reach it. The entire time she was cooking it, all I could think about was grabbing it and eating it!

Finally she sat down to eat. I begged and begged, even though I know I'm not supposed to beg. But what do you expect? You can't make something that smelled that good and expect me to ignore it.

Finally, when the girl was done eating, she carried her bowl into the kitchen. Oh no! She's going to wash her dish and I'm not going to get anything! I need to do something. I need to get it! I jumped up and nearly knocked the bowl out of her hands! I think she got the point because she wiped her finger along the inside of the bowl and let me lick her finger!

YIKES! YUCK! HOT HOT HOT! I can't believe she actually let me lick this! My mouth is on fire! What in the world did she cook? This is making my eyes water and my tongue is burning! I had to wipe my whole head against the rug to try to get rid of the taste.

And can you believe this? The girl laughed at me and then had the nerve to tell me that I got what I deserved for begging! Hmphh!

Attack of the killer toy

I love this toy. The day I moved in with the girl, she took me shopping and let me pick out a toy. This is what I wanted and she bought it for me. It's the perfect size for my mouth and squeaks when I bite it. Plus, BLU doesn't like it, so it is all mine and I don't have to share.

Last night, the girl was playing catch with me and my favorite toy. It was really fun, until BLU tried to get in on the game. I saw her coming and laid down on top of the toy to hide it.

Success! She didn't see the toy and went away. When she left, I got up, but the toy was stuck to my tail! I tried to get it off myself and chased my tail for a while. The girl thought that was really funny and laughed and laughed.

Then, I tried stepping on my tail to hold it still, so I could pull the toy out. My toes got tangled in my tail, and when I stood up, it really hurt. I started screaming and crying because my toes where stuck. My toes hurt. My tail hurt. I still couldn't get the toy.

The girl finally tackled me and freed my toes and the toy. She muttered something about it always being fun and games until somebody gets hurt. Hmph.

I think I need a new favorite toy.

The girl is home!!!

Our girl came home last night! Yippee!! We were so happy to see her. As soon as she got in the house, she set down her bag and dropped to the floor to hug us and play with us. It was great! After about a half hour of kisses and hugs, she called Liz. Because we were still trying to get more hugs and wouldn't let her hold the phone, she put Liz on the speaker. That was pretty cool, because we got to hear what Liz said about us.

Mostly it was good. Liz told the girl that she loved staying with us and thought about sneaking us to her house to live. I think that was a compliment, but I didn't like it. I want to stay at my house with my girl. The girl agreed and said we were staying right where we were.

Liz also told the girl that we were very caring dogs. On two nights when the girl was gone, Liz started coughing really bad in the middle of the night and had a hard time breathing. Comet jumped on the bed to see if she needed help. I wasn't sure what to do, so I put my feet on the bed and watched Liz. Even after she fell back asleep, I kept an eye on her. Even if it meant sleeping in the bedroom instead of my favorite place on the couch. Comet and I stuck real close to Liz after that - just in case she needed our help again.

Even though BLU told me not to give the girl a gift, I couldn't resist. I even got it early so it would be waiting for the girl whenever she got back. I caught a great big pigeon and put it on the kitchen floor. Unfortunately, Liz found it. She screamed when she saw it! It was kind of funny, until she scooped up my gift and threw it away. I was really sad because the girl wasn't going to know I was thinking of her, but Liz told her about the gift on the phone. The girl seemed happy that Liz got rid of my present. :-(

The girl didn't go in to work today, so we got to play with her all day. We really enjoyed that, even if she did insist on brushing us.

Welcome back girl!
Comet and BLU

Still not home

Can you believe it? Our girl still hasn´t come home yet. Liz has been very nice and gives us a greenie every day. The girl only gives us one a week! Aren´t we spoiled! Even being spoiled, we miss our girl. Liz says she is coming home tomorrow. I´d like to give her a welcome home gift, but I don´t think she will want it. She gets rid of all our other gifts.

Going, going, gone!

BLU needs to chill out. I don't know why she gets so worked up over the girl leaving. She left the packed bag sitting out all day while she was gone at work and BLU stressed out over it. Even I'm smart enough to know that the girl won't be gone as long as the bag is in sight. It's when the bag disappears that we have to worry! And when she puts out clean sheets and towels for Liz. Which she just did. Which means she is going to leave tomorrow. Oh well, Liz spoils us! I'll really try not to be naughty while the girl is on vacation.

Don't go!

I don't like it. I don't like it at all! My girl started putting her clothes into the big black bag this morning. A lot of clothes! I think she is going to leave again today. Maybe if I look really sad she will stay home with me and not go.

Why I never get stuffed toys

The girl is being really boring today. She's cleaning out her closets and won't let me help. I think I'm going to sit in the living room and mope until the girl gives me something fun to do.

Look what she found in the closet! I didn't know that was there! She never gives me stuffed toys.

Wow! This is really fun to chew.

I pulled a bunch of stuffing out, and there is more. I wonder how big of a stuffing pile I can make.

This is so cool! You can pull the guts right out of the whale! And it just keeps coming and coming.

Ick. Now it's stuck on my tongue. I think I've had enough.

What else is in the closet for me to chew?
