Since Comet was naughty and slept on grandma's bed, I decided that I would sneak in and sleep on her bed too.
Instead of her bed, I found a scary box.
Comet! Hurry up and look at this.
Hmmm.... this doesn't look good.
Do these clothes smell like grandma or our girl?I think they are grandma's.
Where did the comfy bed go?I don't know. It was just here a minute ago.
Do you think that big comfy bed could fit in this little bag?

What a rip off!
Comet got to nap on the bed and now that grandma's gone, I'm stuck on the floor.
That's what I get for trying to follow the rules.

Don't tell grandma...... I like to nap on her bed when she isn't looking.

Itchy Itchy

I did something this morning that I wish I didn't do.

I went running through some of the tall grass at the back of my yard. It seemed fun at the time, but then I found out that it was really scratchy.

The grass seeds got stuck in my fur and made me itch all over.

My girl and grandma had to pull the scratchy seeds out of my fur.
It wasn't fun!

Grandma's here

Our grandma's flight landed right on time on Sunday. She came all the way to Phoenix from Wisconsin, which is a long way!

BLU met her once before but I've never met her. She's really nice and gives lots of hugs and treats (but doesn't allow kisses).

Our girl's surgery is over and the gull's bladder is out of her tummy. She is home and a bit sore (and is taking pills that make her sleepy) but otherwise doing well. Thanks for all of the positive thoughts that were sent her way. She really appreciates that.

Our grandma is spoiling us. She takes us on long walks and gives us lots of treats. This should be a fun week. We'll post pictures once the girl feels well enough to take some.

Gull's bladder?

This is a gull. We think our girl must have swallowed one of these whole. She has to have an opawation on Monday to remove the gull's bladder from her belly. We don't think that sounds like very much fun.

We love our girl and want to help make sure everything is ok. We grabbed all of our doctoring equipment.
I'll give her a shot to make sure she doesn't feel any pain.

The girl's mom (GM) is coming to stay with us for a week while our girl gets better. She's flying on American Airlines; we don't know if she will be able to get here, since they keep cancelling flights. Maybe we will need to book an emergency flight on Aire Ruby - if she will even allow people on her flights. I'm all ready to help nurse my girl back to health if GM can't get here.

I graduated from my intermediate (really part 2 of beginners) obedience class last night. Here's my diploma and the treat I won for the longest stay.

A lot of our friends were worried about the gecko that lost its tail. It will be ok. The tail is supposed to break off so the gecko can run away if a bird or cat tries to eat it. The tail will grow back in about a month, but it won't be as long as the original. You can read more about geckos here.

Attack of the killer mosquitoes!

See this little gecko? He lives on our porch and eats bugs. We think he is cute and don't chase him. But something did! We think he was attacked by a giant mosquito! There have been tons of giant prehistoric mosquitoes flying around. They are so big they can suck the tail off a gecko.

And here's the proof!
We're not kidding about their size.

Look at this! This isn't trick photography.
It really is huge! Run and hide or you could be next!!!!

{the girl adds... don't let Comet and BLU scare you. There are no giant killer mosquitoes in our yard. They are freaking out over harmless crane flies.}

Spring Cleaning

Our girl decided that she needed to do some spring cleaning today.
She emptied out her closet and dresser and packed up a bunch of clothes.I kept a close eye on her. I wanted to make sure that none of my stuff went into one of those bags.
Wow! That was a big pile of old clothes she had.Her closet looks much neater now.

BLU and I did one final check to make sure that she didn't get rid of our stuff.
Ok! It's all ready to drop off at Goodwill now.
Let's load up the car.All that watching was exhausting. Time for a nap.

ps. The egg we found was a bird egg - we think a sparrow. BLU wouldn't even sniff it, much less taste it. We also found 3 pigeon eggs this week. I bit them open but didn't like the taste of them either. Eggs taste much better when our girl cooks them.

Egg hunt!

Since the girl was on a plane on Easter morning, we didn't get to go on an egg hunt. This weekend, we had one anyway. Look what I found. A blue egg. Did the Easter bunny leave it for me?
It doesn't smell like much.
I wonder what will happen if I bite it.
Hmmm.... That tastes kind of weird.
Maybe BLU will want to eat it.
