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!
