Hi. This is me and my new, yellow rubber ball.

 photo newball1_zpse3f62dcb.jpg
I have mastered panting all while not letting go of my new, yellow rubber ball.

Mommy got me a new ball because I was sick.
But I'm all better now.

This weekend while Mommy was painting the upstairs floor, I leaped over her roller and ran through the freshly painted pine floor boards.
(I never saw Mommy move so fast to grab me.)

I thought it was a good idea to chew a hole in her vintage bedroom area rug.
(I never saw Mommy move so fast to grab me.)

Then I decided to pee on the couch cushion.
(Again, I never saw Mommy move so fast to grab me.)

Later that day I thought it would be a nice gesture to leave a "skid mark" on her braided rug.
(You guessed it. I never saw Mommy move so fast to grab me.)

Yes I'm definitely all better now.
(Mommy must be taking her Geritol.)

In loving memory of those canine American patriots...


Sallie the Staffordshire Bull Terrier.



She given to First Lieutenant William R. Terry of the 11th Pennsylvania Infantry as a four week old puppy. She grew up with the Civil War soldiers, and also loved practicing marching with them and waking them up. She was taken twice by the confederates, but always returned home. She would stand over the dead and wounded after battles.
Sadly, months before General Lee surrendered she went into battle and was hit in the head by a bullet on February 6th, 1865.




Rags the Cairn Terrier.



Rags was a Cairn Terrier mix who served as the mascot of the 1st Infantry Division during World War I. Though he was a small dog, Rags relayed messages from the front lines. His greatest moment of heroism came during the Meuse-Argonne Campaign in 1918, when he ran a vital message through falling bombs. Although the terrier was gassed and partially blinded, he survived.




Smoky the Yorkshire Terrier.



Smoky served in the South Pacific with 5th. Air Force, 26the Photo Recon Squadron and flew 12 air/sea and photoreconnaissance missions. Smoky was credited with 12 combat missions and awarded 8 battle stars. Smoky went through 150 air raids on New Guinea and made it out alive from a typhoon at Okinawa. Smoky even had a special parachute made especially for her.




Lex the German Shepherd.



Lex is a German Shepherd that served in Iraq alongside Cpl. Dustin Lee. Lee was killed in a mortar attack outside Falluja with Lex by his side. The German Shepherd was so faithful to his handler that he had to be pulled away from him to allow medics to attend to Lee. The dog sustained some shrapnel wounds. Lex was present at Lee’s funeral and comforted his younger siblings.

yesterday.

Seems my butt has a mind of its own lately.

But today, I'm a little better. so Mommy's gonna keep an eye on me before she calls the vet again.

Now I'm back under house arrest and not allowed to play outside.
Me and Lindsay Lohan have a lot in common.

I'm feeling better...

 photo dtoy1_zpsf44e200f.jpg

But I'm not allowed to chase my Frisbee or my ball.
Can you believe this crap?!

Speaking of which, I'm still making Mommy clean up after me.

So I'm having to sit around and do nothing. Well, I can chew on these dumb, stupid toys that are no fun because I chewed the squeaky out of every single one.

Hmpf.

I'm also not allowed to run around the house like I do.

So I displayed my displeasure by peeing on the bed in the spare room.

That'll learn 'em.

"I can't believe I ate the whole thing."

The other day Mommy and Daddy had company and we were all outside enjoying the beautiful day.
Well, I was able to gobble me up some crow poo without anybody noticing. **snicker**

Now I feel like H-E-double hockey sticks and I'm shooting nasty, liquid "fireworks" out of my pooper.
Too much information?? Hey, you're the one sitting there reading this. ((giggle))

Anyway, even Alka-Seltzer can't help me.
Which is why I'm on an antibiotic.

Daddy has to stop at the grocery store before he comes home because I need to eat something bland for a few days until I feel better.

In the meantime, Mommy is trying to keep me contained to one area.
She has a roll of paper towels in one hand and a gas mask in the other.
I find the gas mask a little insulting.
I'm mean really... I'm too adorable to stink that bad.
Besides, she could use a clothespin.
She's such a drama queen.

PetSmart Road Trip!!

Mommy went to PetSmart and came home with some presents!!! Real presents too!!
(Unlike the "presents" I like to leave her and Daddy in unexpected places.)

Here' my pink pool! YaY! I've got a pink pool!! But I have no idea what they expect me to do with it.
Mommy sat in it to try and coax me in. C'mon, what'd I just fall off the turnip truck?!
That's the oldest trick in the book and I wasn't falling for it.
Next, she'll try to coax me in there with water in it!
Not happening. Instead I can make it my very own giant, pink, chew toy.

Look!! It's made here in the U.S.A, just like me!!
Mommy was happy to see that. She was also thrilled it was only $9.99 AND it was 20% off! So if you want one too, you'd better get over there!

Here's my new ball.
GUESS WHAT ELSE??!!
It's a SQUEAKY ball!!
QUICK, SOMEBODY PINCH ME!!
I love this tiny ball more than my Frisbees! How is THAT possible??!! I don't know, but it's true!!!

I decided to surprise Mommy

and educate myself about old dollies by checking out one of her collectible dollie books!

 photo book1_zps75a546ef.jpg

I learned some old dollie books are kind of scary looking!
(I bet that one in the middle would try to kill me!
Like how Talky Tina did in Telly Savalas!!)

 photo book2_zps6537be15.jpg

But I also learned some old dollie books are pretty darn tasty!
