Cousin Rambo!

I received a present all the way from sunny California for Christmas from my cousin Rambo!I was really excited when my mom came home and said I received a package in the mail. I couldn't wait to open it but my mom made me pose for the camera in the process! Geesh! I was so happy to get a new duck! I had one just like this but much smaller but it wore out and disappeared. I wonder where stuffies go when they disappear? This one was big and new and all mine? I thought the present was all mine but Ziggy got in on the action too! Being a generous chihuahua, I let Ziggy have his turn before I tried to kill it (check out the short video).

I received some delicious treats from Rambo too (which I also shared with Ziggy). What a great Christmas I had! Thanks Ram!!!!

The ladies at the post office got a big kick out of the fact that I not only got loads more cards then my humans, but received a gift too! Here are some pictures of the cards.

The first two pictures are the cards the humans received. The last picture is all of mine! I got twice as many cards as them and tons and tons of e-cards too! The Christmas Card exchange was so much fun! Thanks to Mr. T Bone Beasley's mom, Amy, for organizing the list! That was alot of work and we sure did enjoy it!

Merry Christmas!

Quite a few of the e-cards I sent out came back to me as undeliverable and I've heard from at least one pup that they couldn't open the card so I'm posting it here. My mom and I hope that all our friends at Dawgs With Blogs and elsewhere have a wonderful Holiday whether it be Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza, New Year, etc. We will sit around our Christmas tree tomorrow morning and consider the biggest gift of all the gift of your friendship!

Have a happy!!!

Snowy Saturday

We had our first real snow of the winter this past Friday and Saturday. Though rain was mixed in, everything did turn a beautiful wintry white for a day or so. It rained all day yesterday then got bitterly cold. So now we're left with a hard white treacherous substance that is neither snow nor ice and not a lot of fun to run around on. Ziggy still enjoys it. The Huskey in him jumps for joy when there is snow of any kind on the ground. He loves to run around and roll and just lie in it. The year Ziggy was born we had a lot of snow (so I'm told) and when it first disappeared he didn't even know where to go to the bathroom! I left some pee-mails in the snow on Saturday, just to mark it as my own. I don't really enjoy the rolling around and lying in it, but it is interesting for a few minutes. Mostly I stayed inside and snuggled with Mom and Leah this weekend.

I've seen a couple other blogs post pictures of blooper pictures taken while trying to get that perfect Christmas Card photo and I got a good laugh out of it so I thought I'd post some of mine. The biggest problem my mom seems to have is avoiding "green eye". The photo editing programs she has only take out "red eye". She tried that on the green but it doesn't help. It was also tough to get me and Ziggy to look at the camera. You know, that flashy thing hurts my eyes! Maybe that's why they glow green! I was getting so confused too because after a couple of pictures my mom told us we were good boys so I thought that meant I should run over to her for some pets. Well, no. Evidently that meant I was supposed to sit still for more torture cause when I tried to get some lovin' she yelled at me. Look how guilty Ziggy looks in some of the pictures (hehehe, when mom yelled at me he thought he was the one in trouble). We did manage to get a decent shot for our card though. We'll post that picture soon. Here's a parting picture of Libby - she wanted in on the action. She's a big camera hog posing perfectly for mom! Geesh!

My Prize!

Yesterday I received my prize for co-winning the Dogs With Blogs Scawy Howloween Costume Contest! I was so excited I let my mom take a bunch of pictures of me modeling it then I had to play some bitey face with Ziggy! Look at the close-up shot of the picture on the t-shirt. It's a hampster!! Who is that hampster?? Is it Girl Girl????? Nope! It's Girl Girl's older brother, FuFu! I didn't know FuFu but I hear he was a great hampster blogger!

She's Home!!

My mom thought I might have forgotten who Leah was but NO WAY! Leah came home on Friday night and I was so surprised and happy to see her that I had a little back-sneezing fit. I got over it and managed to lick her face and let her know I love her and missed her soooooo much!
Libby was happy to see Leah too. Can't you just see the excitement on her face?Do you like Leah's hat? My mom knitted it for her!

Leah's Room

Here are a couple of pictures of Leah's room. My mom has been working really hard to get it all done before Leah comes home on Friday for the Thanksgiving break. The pictures aren't great but this is what she's done so far:

  1. Painted the room
  2. Pulled up the old carpeting
  3. Cleaned and treated the wood floors
  4. Installed new quarter round for the molding
  5. Installed new saddles for the closet doors
  6. Sold her old dressers and desk
  7. Moved in a large dresser from another room
  8. Got new bedding & lamp shades & pillows
  9. Made new window treatments
  10. Installed new wooden blinds
  11. Ordered a "sleeper" chair
    Whew! Too bad we don't have a before picture because it's hard to appreciate how bad the room looked before. Leah wants my mom to wait until she gets home to hang up the "artwork" and to buy an area rug. We'll post some final pictures after that is done.

Monday, Monday

I've got a case of the Monday blues. I'm at work with my mom, sleeping on the floor in between the discarded monitor and the garbage can feeling bored and lonely. I wanted to stay home with Ziggy today but mom made me come to work with her. This is a nice soft blanket though and I am catching up on my rest so maybe it's not all that bad. Brrrr... it's cold outside too and it is nice and warm here in the office. Ok, the blues are gone. Mondays arent' so bad!

3 Boys on a Couch

My mom has been so busy she hasn't been online in 6 days! The first item we need to announce is that I co-won the Scary Halloween Costume contest on Dogs With Blogs!!! I tied with Homer (he had a really awesome costume) and I get to pick out a prize from the DWB store. I'll be sure to post about it when I get it! Thanks for voting for me :P
Second item which is a little sad - our pretty orange canary, Edward, died yesterday. He was pretty old and had been sick for awhile. My mom says she's relieved that he is happy and healthy again flying around the Bridge with his bride Sylvia. I'm sure he's singing all of his songs, even the one that sounded like a car alarm. So now there are no birds at all in my house! Only 2 dawgs and 2 cats...
My mom wanted to share these pictures with all of you. She calls the series, "Three Boys on a Couch" for obvious reasons. We are getting new couches this weekend and my mom is so excited you'd think she was a kid at Christmas! She says the new couches are going in another part of the living room so me and the cats can't climb up on the kitchen counter any more. That'll work for me and Libby but I can guarantee you that Tommy will still be on the counter.
Finally, my mom has been busy, busy, busy cleaning out and fixing up Leah's room. Leah will be home for Thanksgiving on November 21st and my mom wanted to have it all done for her. Mom painted the room three different colors - very bright yellow, a softer yellow and white. She pulled up the carpet and treated the wood floors, installed some new quarter round for the molding and saddles for the closets and new wooden blinds. The room looks great and is soooooo clean. The door is shut all the time now so me, Ziggy and the cats can't go in there. Not fair! I need to mark that room as my own...

My 100th Post!!!

I've reached a milestone in my blogging career - Post #100. Not every post has been earth-shatteringly enlightening, informative, creative or funny but every post has been from my heart. I've met so many nice dawgs, cats, hampsters and, yes, even humans through this experience! I've received support in sad times and sent out my paws to others during their trials. I always look forward to hearing from my friends and visiting with them also. I can only hope that the next 100 posts will be as fun for me as the first 100 were. Thanks for being there with me :P

Tell your humans not to forget to VOTE today!!!

Popcorn Balls & Pigeons

I didn't need to get all upset worrying about hoards of human children coming to my house on Halloween. We only had 4 kids and they all came at once and they were all my mom's niece's children. Those kids are ok because they have 3 small dawgs and know not to get all up in my face. They leave me alone until I'm ready to talk to them.
My mom got a popcorn ball from the neighbors around the corner that she has been trick-or-treating with since she was a little girl! Mrs. Culver says she has to keep making the popcorn balls because there are still people who come there specially on Halloween just for them (my mom being one of them!) Doesn't it look good? My mom ate it right up and only gave me the crumbs that fell off while she was scoffing it down. Hmpf!This morning my mom looked outside and saw a pigeon in our back yard! What?! We don't live in a city, there are no pigeons hanging around in parks eating bread crumbs here like in the movies. Where the heck did that pigeon come from. Did he hitch a ride out to the Hamptons on the Long Island Rail Road or on someone's car and decide to become a beach bum pigeon?? He flew away when my mom got about 10' away from him. I wonder if he'll come see us again...

Happy Halloween!

Trick or treat!
Oh the humiliation...

Thursday, October 30, 2008


Ok, in case you haven't noticed, my mom changed my blog around just a little bit (snickers). In the process she inadvertantly deleted ALL my Doggone Good Blogs and my Awards! She spent half the night last night re-doing my Doggone Good Blogs from memory. If we've forgotten anyone PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE let me know! Also, the awards... She's going to TRY to get them all back on today because they mean soooooo much to us but in case she can't research who gave them to us, please don't be shy, let us know. I don't think I'm going to let her mess around with my blog again... It is her job to type my posts for me cause I'm all paws. Do you like the new look? My mom says it hurts her eyes but I like it cause it SCREAMS "This is a DOG's blog!"
