It's Getting Hot in Here

Summer has finally arrived and if it wasn't for the sherbet mom shares with me, I would be asking Mother Nature to take summer back.

On hot days master has instituted the latest tradition which is to cool off with a cold treat. Mom doesn't like ice cream (I DO!) so she gets sherbet and I make sure my begging face is really noticeable so that she can share some with me.

I always win! Thank God for the sherbet, if not, I would just hate this hot summer heat.

I'm Famous!

I've made it to the front page! Don't think the story was about me, but I was the model in the image used in this story.

You see, my mom is a journalist. She works in the trade publications business, managing websites, blogs social media accounts and what not. She also creates content for her employer's websites and magazines. Yet, she had always told me that she wanted to write for something she is totally passionate about and that is ME! I mean dogs. So this great opportunity came along and now she writes for Life with Dogs.

I thought her first article there was going to be about me, but it wasn't. It was about some other dog named Otto. I guess I'm just not news worthy. Anyway, by her 25th article she needed an image of a dog relaxing on some grass, and I volunteered.

I didn't think I was going to make the front page, but I did. Anyway, read the article "Study shows herbicides used on house plants and grass are linked to cancer in dogs" (and see my picture), it might just save your pet's life.

Happy Mother's Day!

Today is the best day ever! Well, after my birthday and X-mas of course. Today we celebrate all mothers and my mom is the best mom I could have ever wished for.

My mom doesn't have any human kids of her own - not yet. But she decided to adopt me as her first fur-child of her own. To me, this makes her the best mom in the world!

See, many people that meet me say that  I would be dead today, but because mom fell in love with me I'm alive. Many think I would have been destroyed long time ago. I know I'm not perfect. I have nipped at people, growled at many passerby, protected one too many toys, tried to attack feet with shoes or with white socks, and have become food aggressive around lots of other dogs, but all I needed was a human to love me and show me the ways to be a good dog.

I was probably born in a puppy mill and abused by my original owners, but you see, I was never given the chance to learn. There was no role model dog for me to follow. There was no kind human to teach me how to be good. I knew nothing of this until I was picked up by the rescue group that introduced me to mom.

If it wasn't for my mom's love I wouldn't be here today. I wouldn't be as "good" as I am now, and I would have never known how much love a human can really give to us dogs.

Mom, I want to thank you for giving me a chance. Thank you for believing in me, for loving me and for trusting me. Thank you for letting me sleep on your bed, for allowing me up on the furniture, for letting me ride shotgun, for cooking for me, for taking me on really long walks, for giving me baths and brushing my teeth, and most importantly for defending me every time Master people speak ill of me.

I love you mom! Sorry all I got you was a poop bag.

Today I Turn 4!

Is that really for me?

It's my birthday and I get to do whatever I want to!

Today I stayed in my human's bed, long after they had gotten ready to start their work day. I got to hear mom sing me the happy birthday song and give me lots of kisses. Master took me on a very long walk and he didn't complain once about it. And at 5 o'clock, mom threw me a pizza party!

Well, I didn't get to eat any pizza, but my humans did. I didn't get birthday cake either. I GOT A MEATBALL INSTEAD!

That has been the tastiest birthday treat I've ever had.

After my birthday party I went out on another walk and then over to Nana and Babba's house to be spoiled some more.

I love being celebrated!

I'm not older, just wiser!
