How do you ask your people to let you out?

I use a bell.

I abuse the bell when I am bored.

Tonight, I am very belly.

Between this and the sound of a very loud Henrietta, may hit the campari soon.

I received my postcard today from the moms. They send me postcards from everywhere they go that is worth sending a postcard from - for example, the store doesn't count or work.

I wonder if TH mom will send me a postcard from the DFW airport, she could be there for a while.

My life has seriously improved the reappearance of trout and sweet potato kibble and a new squeaky!

My first squeaky died and moms tried to find an equivalent.

They say it cost more to ship said squeaky than the price of the squeaky. It is very big and has a pronounced painful long yelpy squeak, much like henrietta, but different.

I was happy to see it.

I am no longer ignoring, she is making me more pasta.

Not having any of the chicken oatmeal kibble as my welcome home foodage.

A couple things about my experience in lockdown.

I found out that I have a vocation as a weight loss coach. My roomie, the weimeraner was in for training and weight loss. I ran him ragged. They estimated that I made him lose at least two lbs.

I rock. asked if she could be boarded for the same reasons and they said it doesn't work with humans.


I ran out of food while in the hoosegow, which left the moms with a dilemna. Do they buy another bag of Pinnacle trout and sweet potato and to have me reject it because it reminded me of the slammer or do they try something new?

They tried something new - chicken and oatmeal.

I rejected it.

I am ignoring the shorter one. She instigated the whole thing. I did pee on her shoes at the end of the Furry 5K, so maybe that was an omen.

The T.H mom is leaving for Oklahoma tomorrow. She better bring me back a steak. Is that anywhere near you Wally?

I'm still on for Larry King tomorrow. saw him last year shopping at Bendels, she says he looks like a skeleton.

I am very tired, I am glad to be back in my own domain, but still wary of both of them. signed me up for a refresher in basic obedience. I think she needs it more than me.



I'm free, tired, still a bit resentful about having to go into lockdown, but happy to be home.

I will be on Larry King tomorrow, but until then, I send you all smooches from the 98105!

Four hours until my release.

Or at least until my peeps walk in the door and wait to meet the trainer.

We're having family counseling!

Or at least a leave it/off/down lesson together. will send a picture of my release to her flickr when I am free!

I'm really okay.

They promise me I'll be sprung on Monday and tomorrow is the last day of training.

I think they were at home for a bit but could not spring me.

I hope they didn't redecorate while I was gone.



Would everyone buy a free ernest tshirt? Mom will make them,if you think they'll pay for my lawyer.

An update on my status....

I'm doing okay. I have a weimeraner as a roomie. I think he's in for aiding and abetting a boxer in the theft of a dozen donuts.

I am eating (wolfing) down my food. I guess I should be greatful my moms brought my own foo foo food into the hoosegow.

I am allowed phone calls and moms think that I am going to be okay.

I am overwhelmed with the support my buds are showing me.

Smooches to all of you.

The waiting begins.

It is really only one week, but since I'm a dog, its really seven weeks. I didn't mean to make anyone worry.

I went in peacefully and so far, I am not doing any type of Paris Hilton stuff.

They even let me take my bed.


Um, I am getting ready for lockdown. They just bought me food and now they say I need more!

Yoikes. How long am I in for?

I figure a week is really seven weeks, so I guess I'll see you all in mid August.


Moms will promise to monitor my site and my behavior via the telephone.

They also promised me a moose from Alaska.

I hope my grandmere sends me up a toy from SD.


be strong peeps, we will make it through this rough time.

Doing my best Ko imitation.

I went to the groomer today. says my bathing room is not quite done yet and Uncle David was coming and well, she needed to make sure I was somewhere for the day.

I was tired when I got home. I collapsed on the carpet.

TH mom came home from Berkeley (I have never been, but I know it is close to Ko) and brought me fresh lemon and ricotta ravioli from the Pasta Shop. I thought it was quite acceptable. told me not to get too excited. I did anyway.

Seems that they are getting ready to ship me off to ten days of the Academy including four days of training.


I think I better be better or else.

My halfs, courtesy of Joe Gonyeau.

Here are my half brothers, I am going to call them - Huxtable and Horatio! Click here to see more of them. They do stack well. I wonder if they can stack on top of eachother!

They are cute, but my sister is getting bored with them as they are a big time suckage of Mama Stephanie and it means I can't visit Phracey, Lola and Jedi, which bums me out. After all, it is asparagus pulling out of the ground season.

I think they are spoken for, or you could adopt them, if you can pass a few small tests.

1. Can you spend 18 hours a day being watchful for said puppies eating cigarette butts, poisonous mushrooms, leftover easter candy and stray buttons?
2. Are you up for 18 visits an hour to the front lawn for ablutional events?
3. Are you willing to give up your bad habits of leaving your laptop, expensive leather purse and divine prada flats (guilty!) on the floor when you get home from work?
4. Are you willing to give up a leisurely dinner as you once knew it to let said dog out (see question 2)?
5. Are you willing to have your heart broken if this puppy decides he likes your partner more than you?
6. Do you promise not to kennel them all day and then come home and not be bothered to take them out for at least four walks before dinner? They need attention!
7. Can you provide for them a udon dinner, with extra sweet potatoes, organic cookies and lots of cherry tomatoes when they want it?

If you can pass this test, you can have one of my half brothers!

Happy Bloggiversary to me!

I really started blogging a year ago. I was much smaller (3 months old!) and not as wise.

I appreciate all of you sticking around to hear of my tales of woe including the evil Buster, my delightful sister and my dental crises.

I send each and everyone of you a big smooch!

I'm not not much of a DIY guy, but since they have decided to redecorate my bathing bathroom, I decided that I would participate in the tsping of the walls and going to the hardware store to pick paint colors.

More to follow.

I was very good.
