After a long week.. finally...THE dance studio...

Woo Woo... well This has been a long week. First, mom pulled/tore a muscle in her rib cage. I have had to play Nurse to her. Thank woo all for well wishes for her. She is feeling much better today...which led to an "outing".... Second, mom and dad had to have work done on the chimney where a pesky woodpecker pecked holes all in the siding. So, while playing Nurse, I had to play Construction Supervisor as well.

Ok.. now to today's excitement. Now that mom is feeling better, she took me to Petsmart today. But, before we got there, we stopped at the... DANCE STUDIO! Whoo Hoo.. the hard wood floors, the mirrors, the smells of bipeds EVERYWHERE!!! I wish she had taken my nose and leash off so I could have inspected everything... but I guess mom thought I would tear up something, so she did not let me leash off :( Check me out...


So, once we got home... I did some surgery on my hedgehog that mom gave me for my birthday a few weeks ago. I hope you will scroll down some to see that footage. After that... Tia and I decided to settle down for a nice nap... Toodles friends...

Nurse Sitka and Tia

This weekend was a lazy one. I spent the day with Dad because Mom had a 3 year old biped birthday to go to. I an not sure why I did not get to go. Here is a picture of all of mom's best friend's children - in other words - my mom's "nieces". The picture - Left to Right - is Audrey, Kate (the birthday girl) and Emma!


Well Friends... My feline sister and I have been playing NURSE to our mom! Seems last Wednesday, she started complaining about her left side chest/rib cage area hurting when she slept on her left side, back or stomach. Also it hurt when she sat up straight or took really deep breaths. Since she is a back, left side or stomach sleeper, she has not slept very well for that reason alone. Well.. After playing nurse last week and throughout the weekend... it finally got bad enough that she called a doctor friend last night and went into see the Doc this morning. Mom thought it was a pulled or torn muscle in her rib cage, and the doctor seems to agree. So.. they gave mom 2 kinds of medicine and a shot in the butt.. Ouch!

So... today, all we did was sleep on the bed and it was GREAT. Also.. this is mom's spring break from her day job, so that is even better. I had hoped that we would do something fun today, but with one of the medications, mom can't drive. One of the medicines acts like a s it is like a sedative. So, mom driving would be BAD. Zim.. did you learn how to drive yet? Perhaps you can teach me so I can drive mom around.

Well.. not much else to report on. Maybe mom will get to feeling better and I won't be so "blue" and mom can play with me. Playing Nurse is HARD work my friends.

Caught in the act....

Tia, my feline sister, is the focus of today's blawg... See she has this interest in my mom's clothing. Unlike Sam's post "Does anyone want a Hound Dog?, who loves to eat underwear, she likes to drag it! Included in that are hand towels and bath towels. Well... she has taken up new habits here lately. Mom has been desperately trying to catch her in the act but has been unsuccessful until last night.


Here she is bringing her cat nip toy downstairs...


Now.. she is carrying one of MY toys...

Now... to catch her carrying my tennis balls.. and yes, I am serious. Does anyone else have a feline sibling? If so.. so they drag items throughout your house? Happy Tuesday!!!

Cherry Blossom Festival... Fun Times...

Well everyone... I enjoyed some events hosted by the Macon Cherry Blossom Festival. It is a 10 day festival featuring hundreds of arts, history and entertainment events. Well, today, they had the Dixie Disk Dog Championships. We got there at about 10:30 this morning. It was cold... and I loved it. About 45 degrees! It warmed up to 60 by the time we left at 3:30. Well... here I am below waiting for the event to begin.....

Ok.. so I met alot of pup pals... this one, I really thought he was cute! His name is Ace and he is a Belgian Tervuren. Mom took some great photos of him catching his disks. Then, she went over and talked to him and his owner and told him she got some great shots. They exchanged email address. Then, Ace, went into my mom's purse and found my stash of dog treats. I let him have some of them.


So as all of these wonderful athletes were busy chasing those circular things in the air and jumping and catching them... I was busy rolling around on the ground where I had just pawed at my water bowl pouring out all of the water that mom and dad packed for me.



So next we took a walk and saw some interesting things. People think it is a good idea to dress up their animals in unacceptable clothing or paint them PINK!. Now, I don't have a problem with that color, but I don't think it is a good idea to dip your dog in a bath of pink stuff! Check out this poor Cocker Spaniel - in Pink!

So, we kept walking... I ran into a English Bulldog/Mastiff or something similar. Someone put stencils all over him and then topped it off with spray paint.

Ok... now this was really weird. It was a dog.. I think? But it stood on two legs. I don't understand. I was a bit leery of it... but I did smell it's paw...er... hand.

Ok... after meeting many many many new friends... even ran into two Siberians! How cool was that? One was just a pup. I could tell by the energy. The other one was 6 years old. She was shorter than me, but thicker in the chest and tummy area! Her tail was not as long as mine either. So... on our way heading out.. we stopped by this HUGE caged area. Something caught my eye....
Look closely in front of me... do you see it? If not.... check out the next picture...


Yes... those are TIGERS! Bengal Tigers to be exact. I was not sure what to make of something so FREAKING HUGE! I looked at mom and started to pull her away from the cage. As we walked away from those big cats, I kept looking back to make sure they were staying put.

All in all it was a BANNER day! I did wear my green bandanna since it is St. Patty's Day. Well.. it is NAP time because I am so tired of my adventurers today. Until next time.... Hugs and kisses to you all...

My first trip to the beach....

First - I wanted to say THANK YOU for all of the birthday wishes! Mom has had a very busy week... so, she has not given much time to photographing me this week. So, let's travel back in time and let me tell you about my trip to the beach...

Well.. it happened last September. I went to this place that mom calls "the beach". Dad had one of those law conferences to go to.. so mom and I tagged along. While he was in class, we checked out alot of stuff. Here I am walking one morning on the beach.


Mom told me that dad was almost back to the room we were staying. She told me to "pay attention" and "listen".. when she does that, I immediately go to the window and look like I know exactly what I am looking at. Pretty smart, huh?


So... I realized that this place called "the beach" is really for DIGGING! Check me out... I am working on my second trench. I am not sure what I am looking for, but that sand was so fun to play in. I am also going to ask mom to upload a video of me digging. Be on the lookout for that. She hates the way she sounds on video... it is nothing like how she sounds in "real life".

I tell you.... This was a fun trip. Everything my parents got to do, I did it too! They went to dinner.. I went too. The island that we stayed on was very dog friendly. We had to eat on the deck, but that was ok. Everyone was so nice to me. Mom brought my own water bowl, but they even offered to give me a bowl of water. How nice! I hope I get to go there again :)

Be sure to scroll down and check out some videos that I posted. I hope that you enjoy watching them :)

Yummy Ice Cream from SONIC!

I am 3 today...

Woo Woo everyone...

Well.. today I turned 3!! It has been such a great day. I woke up the humans when the sun came up. They gave me MANY kisses and told me happy birthday. Here is Tia wishing me a Happy Birthday.


My first surprise of the day was my hedgehog stuffed toy. It is big and round and I can not wait to remove the squeaker from its insides. I will get it, and the white fluffy stuff inside him too!




Ok - here is one of the pans that mom cooked that homemade lasagna in. I am helping her clean up! yummmmmmm It is SO good. Want some? There is still some left, come on over ;)



Ok - yesterday I told you there would be ice cream sundaes.. well, here I am enjoying mine.



Oh, here is my mom's mom's white dog, Mick! We had SOO much fun running in the backyard cutting the fool! We played like civilized adults...promise! He is not as fast as me, but man oh man, he has some endurance!!!


Ok.. I am now passed out. You see around me some toys. In the back is a chick-fil-a cow that mom got for free! She gave it to me on Friday, and I have been carrying it around ever since. The thing to the right of it is called a Wiggly Giggly (the bone that wiggles and giggles). It is very interesting... hard, but LOUD. Now... see the thing near my mouth? That is Earl, the Ultimate Chick Magnet. he has tattoos on him, flaming pants, a wife beater shirt and a gold chain around his neck. He is rubber, and makes LOUD noises. But... it is not just a regular squeak... it sounds like a loud fart!!! Oh, it is fun. I love things that are loud and this fits the bill. My granna, grandadders, Mick (Maltese), Don Juan (Shih tzu), Smutt (Shih tzu), and Chloe (Shih tzu) got that for me.
P.S. Zim.. if you are having a hard time finding your mom's car keys... let me know. I will send a private plane to get you.. well, I don't actually have a private plane... but if you all remember in some other posts, my sister, Tia, we joke in the house that she has millions of dollars stashed away somewhere... so we will use some of her money to fly everyone out to my house :)


Hugs to EVERYONE!!
