November 27, 2008

BOBO: Ok, so once again I was minding my own business after enjoying a nice relaxing day.

Then THIS happened:
WHAT? Mom & Cocoa went for a jog (I'm still angry they left me here, by the way) and I was preparing to be sulky and really play it up so I could get more treats. Suddenly, they come in with THAT behind them. OK, I'm just now getting used to Cocoa's bratty antics, and you bring home another BOY? He acted like he was scared of me, and all I wanted to do was give him a healthy sniff. What am I, the big bad wolf?

Anyway, the boy went in the backyard so I followed him and sniffed him a bunch and made sure I covered up any of his pee with my own. You know, this is my territory after all. Then Mom & Dad gave him food and water and he didn't eat any (WHAT is wrong with him?). They closed up my little door and left me & Cocoa inside and him outside. He kept talking, but it was mostly talking to the other dogs behind the fence. I can tell Mom & Dad were annoyed. They always get mad when I talk too loud.

I wasn't mad for TOO long, because we ate some turkey legs. Nom nom. Speaking of, I'm going to go grab some grub so I'll let my psycho little sister finish the story...

COCOA: I wasn't mad at the new dog. I wanted to check out the newbie but he wasn't having any of it - he ran from me! Haha!

It was all fun & games, until Mom put him in my little house. MY.LITTLE.HOUSE. Ugh! Now it's going to smell like him, even though they took my blanket out for me. I guess that's the least they could do. He ended up eating like a pig, so I guess he was hungry. Then he passed out for a few hours, and slept all the way through the night. I got up in the morning, and he really wanted to go out to potty so he started crying. Mom let him out, thank goodness, because I didn't want him to pee in MY.LITTLE.HOUSE! Then we all played for a little while, but Mom took him to the car, drove away, and came back without him!

She explained to me (though I didn't even ask!) that the newbie that had followed me in the door was a stray(?) meaning he was lost from his family and she had brought him to our doctor (yayayayay - my favorite doctor!) and the doctor said she'd keep him and see if she can find his parents. So, he wasn't really a newbie but a visitor. I liked him anyway.

BOBO: Ok, so Cocoa has been convinced to go into this little cage every day. Mom just tells her "go get in your house" and she runs in like it's the greatest thing in the world. Then she gets lots of praise and treats - and even a chewy stick! I decided to check this thing out. I didn't get any praise or any treats. Hmmph. I don't see what the big deal is.
COCOA: When Mom & Dad let me out of my house, I usually find a way to annoy Bobo immediately. I have to make up for lost time, after all.

November 15, 2008

BOBO: I'm trying to enjoy the outdoors before it starts to get really cold. I don't mind the cold, but I like the grass & dirt a lot better when it's warm outside. I love sunny days, as long as I can go inside when I get too hot!

COCOA: I love the heat, and it's been getting colder and colder outside. I kind of remember the cold before, but I was surrounded by my mom & brothers so we were all warm. By the time we went to our new home with all of the other dogs it was warm outside. Then, when I came home with Mom & Dad & Bobo it was really warm. Then it got too hot and I stayed inside and drank lots and lots of water.
Now that I spend most of my day in my new little house, I really love the time I get to play in the yard. I like the little house too, though. I always have treats and toys inside, and I get to snuggle up on a warm blanket. I have to hold my pee! I'm really good at it! Sometimes I get nervous that Mom & Dad might be gone all day, though. I wonder if I could hold it that long?

October 10, 2008

BOBO: Well, Cocoa has done it this time! She was upset that Mom & Dad were gone and went nuts on the wall. When Mom came home, she was so mad! I haven't seen her that mad since the time I ran away from home and she found me at the community pool.

COCOA: I don't know what to say. Mom just described the situation as "Cause & Effect".

September 13, 2008

BOBO: Dad sure is loud when his favorite football team plays. I'm used to it, and I just leave the room or go outside. Cocoa still gets scared, though, because she thinks he is yelling at her. I told her to come outside, and I decided to play with her for a while. Yeah, I know, I'm too kind.

COCOA: I didn't feel well last night. I found something to crunch on, but then it started leaking something wet and I spit it out. A little while later, my belly hurt so I went outside to get some grass. Then I threw up. Yuck. Mom freaked out when she saw me, though, because she said my tongue is blue! She also said my barf was blue, but she was too busy trying to clean it up for me to see. She showed me what I crunched on, and told me "NO!" She said Dad's "SHARPIES" will always make me sick. I didn't know! It was on the coffee table, and I like to check out the coffee table for goodies.

BOBO: I feel like there's always a shadow, following me around...

COCOA: This summer, I enjoyed sleeping,
and also sleeping.

August 2, 2008

BOBO: Didn't I mention I didn't like water? Well, we went on a "long journey" and we were in the car so long I thought we'd end up at Grandma & Grandpa's house. Instead we went to a house I've only been to once, except this time it was empty instead of full of people and kids. I didn't mind - it was relaxing but didn't have a fence so I had to hold my pee until someone took me out. Just like the old days.

Anyway, while we were there Mom & Dad made me get into what I thought might be a type of car but it was on water instead! I was afraid I'd fall off or that I'd get wet, but it ended up being pretty fun. I just hung out in the shade and felt the breeze. I got kind of wobbly a few times, but I liked looking over the edge.

The only bad part about the weekend was the storm. It was bad, and I was scared. I have no idea why my crazy parents like these things! They're dangerous! I bet a tree could have fallen on the house, or it could have been struck by lightning!
COCOA: Just when I started liking the car.....we went for the longest ride ever! I was ok, but did NOT enjoy it. We ended up someplace strange and I didn't know if was our new house or not. I was also really confused b/c I couldn't find the little door to go outside and use the bathroom, so when I had to go I just went where I was. What? What was I supposed to do? Hold it?

I liked the rug and the hard, cold floors and the porch so I could watch everything. I also liked the ride we took in the car they called a "boat"! I liked this a lot better than the other car because it was open and I could feel the wind and it was on water so I could have escaped if I wanted. I thought about jumping off into the water but changed my mind b/c Bobo refused to go with me. Mom & Dad jumped off and it looked like fun.

We finally got back in the car and stayed in it for a long time again. When I got back out, we were home. Boy, was I glad to see my little door again!

July 31, 2008

BOBO: I'm a pretty nice guy, and I only truly hate a few things. I hate cats (evil) and I hate anything that makes my fur wet. I hate the beach, the rain, baths, anything. So, why would Mom think it was ok to take me for a walk when it was obviously raining outside? Was this some sort of punishment? I protested, but was overruled.
COCOA: Water water water, I love the water! I like to drink it and eat it and swim in it! It cools me off and makes me all sloppy and if I want to dry off I can just roll all over the carpet. Bobo is such a grump! He acts like he was tortured or something. He's just sitting around all wet and mopey. I'm going to go drink his water - ha!

July 25, 2008

BOBO: Things have been calm around here lately. Cocoa isn't eating as much, but she still gets in trouble more than I do. I love it when Mom & Dad teach her tricks. She's finally figuring it out, and I've figured out that if I stand nearby I ALSO get a treat...for doing absolutely nothing.

COCOA: I admit it. I kind of like the car now. If I ride in the seat with Bobo and I look outside the window it isn't nearly as bad. We've gone in the car a few times, and didn't end up anywhere scary. As long as we come back home, I guess I can handle the ride.

July 15, 2008

BOBO: I had a suspicion that Cocoa's food was more delicious than mine, so I decided to give it a taste while Mom wasn't looking. Sure enough, it was more meat and less veggies. I watched Mom when she re-filled our bowls. Cocoa's is supposed to be for growth. I guess b/c she's just a kid. Mine is called "Healthy Weight". Hmm. I might be mistaken, but I think Mom & Dad are insinuating that I'm fat.

COCOA: "NO" is the bad word. I know what the bad word means. Mom & Dad say the bad word when they want me to stop whatever I'm doing. They say the bad word when I try to give them a tooth kiss or if I want to cross the street by myself. They use the bad word on Bobo too, especially when he puts my whole head in his mouth.
P.S. Mom told me I am 7 months old today!

July 6, 2008

BOBO: Ugh! She keeps following me around everywhere. I think we're all on edge because of the loud noises, but she won't leave me alone for a second! I had to jump up on the couch and have Mom & Dad protect me, even though I hate being a lap dog.

COCOA: First, I fought with my felt chew toy. Then I found a string left over from my rope toy, and fought with it. Now, I am bored.

July 4, 2008

BOBO: The 4th of July. It is always a wonderful and terrible day. Today, I turned 8 human years old, which makes me ancient in dog years. I still feel like a spring chicken, so I guess I'm doing ok. Regardless, I always get super-pampered on this day. This year, I had a delicious steak. Yum! But I knew in the back of my mind what was going to happen later. Later, Mom & Dad will leave me alone in the house and there will be scary, noisy explosions everywhere! Needless to say, I'm freaked out all evening.

COCOA: Bobo got people food to eat, and I got ignored! I decided to eat the following: my rope toy, 2 sticks, my blue chew toy, my stuffed ring, and a pinecone.
