Nail Clipping is Pointless

This is what mom found out last night. She has a big red mark above her lip where I scratched her last night. It was her fault, I was just trying to jump up and give her a hug and she moved. Why is everyone always trying to avoid my big bear hugs?

We had a good time swimming and playing at the dog park tonight then we went to the drive-thru at Fazoli's They keep milk bones at the drive in window for us and on the rare occasions when they run out they give us bread sticks, even better! If you haven't been, make sure your people take you there. You other fast food places need to wise up, get milk bones if you want our business! Fazolis Rules!

Trip to Vet

Mom took us to the vet tonight. Sister Munch as usual was trying to turn and run out the door as soon as we walked in. She got her paw pinched by the door, yelped and limped for a few minutes. Then they took us back to the little room and the Dr. man came in. He put his papers up on the counter and started looking at them, I stood up next to him with my paws on the counter so I could see too. Silly man told me to get down, is there some reason I can't look at my own medical records? They gave me a ride up on the elevator table and I tried to put my big paws around the Dr. mans neck but he wouldn't let me give him a hug. Guess maybe he is shy or something.

First he put some crap down my nose, then tried to stick something in my butt and I screamed, then he came around the front and tried to take some blood out of my leg, I screamed again. Mom said I was being a big baby and sister just stood there staring while they tortured me. Mom told the man to cut my front nails cause I am always pulling her arm and scratching her. The clipping noise scared sister a little and she tried to hide under a chair.

Sister didn't have to have anything stuck in her, doc just wanted to listen to her heart and look down her throat to see why she is coughing all the time. He is somewhat baffeled but he says we can go to the dog park. AROOOO!

Sister got scared when they were lowering the table so the Dr. man said she could just jump off as it was only about a foot off the ground at that point. Well she jumped and slipped on the tile floor, fell on her face and had a good coughing fit. Seems like this Dr mans office is a dangerous place. Sister hasn't coughed since though, maybe the fall cured her. Mom grumbled, gave the man several days pay and we left.

Steve Irwin Crocodile Hunter Dies at 44

Steve died while filming an underwater segment on stingrays. While swimming over a stingray the rays barb came up and punctured Steves chest and put a hole in his heart.

I found Steve a bit annoying the first few times I watched his show but after seeing an interview with him about his life I really grew to respect him. All that enthusiam was real. His dad owned a small reptile park and Steve grew up around animals. Steves dad taught him to catch crocodiles when he was very young. Every one of the over 100 crocs in their park was either caught by their bare hands or born in the park.

Steve died doing what he loved the most, but he died much too young.

It will bring tears to your eys.

A Dog Sits Waiting

A dog sits waiting in the cold autumn sun.
Too faithful to leave, too frightened to run.

He's been here for days now with nothing to do
But sit by the road, waiting for you.

He can't understand why you left him that day.
He thought you and he were stopping to play.

He's sure you'll come back, and that's why he stays.
How long will he suffer? How many more days?

His legs have grown weak, his throat's parched and dry.
He's sick now from hunger and falls, with a sigh.

He lays down his head and closes his eyes,
I wish you could see how a waiting dog dies.

I love puppies

This is my little husky friend from the dog park. Mom says I would make a good mother cause I lay down and let little Clash crawl all over me. If a big dog bothers him I act mean and run them off. It is my job to protect the little guy. I think it would be fun to have 6 little puppies but mom says no way!

The Hu-mom is getting mean!

She is threatening to tie my front paws together if I don't stop pulling her hand off her computer rodent. I don't care, I can chew through anything and if all else fails I can whimper and cry, she will feel sorry for me and untie my paws. I know what a whimp she is!

I'm Bored!

A bored husky malamute can be a dangerous thing. I beat mom with my silly pink squeaky mouse till she got off the computer. We can't go to the dog park tonight like usual because sister Munch has had a cough since last Sunday. Mom thinks she might be contagious but hey, I haven't caught it.

From what I read on the web kennel cough can last up to 3 weeks and the dog will feel fine. The hu-moms however can be annoyed by the hacking cough. Mom keeps telling Munch to go drink some water but she just stands there and hacks until mom scoops some water out of the bowl with her hands and feeds it to her. What a spoiled brat.

Personally I don't think it is kennel cough. For one thing she hasn't been to a kennel. Maybe it is bark park cough or maybe it is just a giant hairball stuck in her throat. She is always biting me and pulling my fur. Serves her right if she has a giant hairball stuck in there. I sure hope she gets better soon though cause I want to go to the dog park to play with my friends and swim.

The worst part about staying home on Friday night is that the dog whisperer is on. I just know mom is going to make us watch it tonight. I hate watching that silly Millan guy trying to train people.
