The Most Wonderful News EVER!

I'm in love, love, love!

I just want to bark it from the hill tops!

I think she likes me too!

Her name is Oona and she's only 9 months old!

Even though she's a Pitbull and I'm a Havanese, you can see here that I'm taller than she is...

She loves it when I whisper sweet nothings in her ear...

and she totally knows who the boss is!

She likes hugging while we play bitey face...

It's okay when we argue....

cuz we always make up in the end!

Oona has some great ideas, even if they do shock me a little bit!

'You wanna do WHAT????'

Yep... I'm a boy in love.

If you don't hear from me for a while, it just means that Oona and I have run off together!


Can life get any better than this???

Positively Pavlovian

I hate to admit this...

but here it goes...

I am a smart dog!

Mom tells me that being a smart dog is not a good thing - it just means I'm a bad dog.  What do you think?

Here's a couple cases where I think that I am super stupendous smart and mom thinks I'm the worst dog EVER!

We live in a complex that consists of 120 townhouses and condos so mom is very conscious about how much noise we make.  I enjoy barking at people that pass by our backyard so that they know not to enter.  Sometimes, I may get a bit carried away and that's when mom will call me in by saying she has a cookie for me.  Hey!  Who wouldn't come for a cookie? 

Well, a couple of months ago mom caught onto my game...  she was sitting at the dining room table and could see me out in the backyard.

It seems I may have been barking and then looking over my shoulder to see if she was going to call me in for a cookie and if I didn't get the required response, I would bark again...

Does that make me a bad dog???

Since she's caught on to that one she comes out and escorts me into the house and its a hit or miss on the cookie front...

But I thought of something else and luckily for me, my mom is a bit slow on the uptake some days.

My newest thing is to go bonkers on the patio door like I REALLY need to go out but when she opens the door, I run back to the cookie dispensing area.

Of course, because she's so well trained, she automatically gives me (and Pippen) a cookie.  Sometimes I'd do that 3 or 4 times before I would actually go outside!

Well, she's figured that one out now too and can you believe it - she says I am the baddest dog ever!

So am I a smart dog or am I a bad dog???

The Sheer Audacity!

Do you know who this is???

Neither do we!  This is NOT our kitteh!

We found him sleeping in one of our outside beds and he wouldn't leave!

Mom shut us in the house while she negotiated with the kitteh to leave our backyard...

As you can see, I'm not happy with this interloper!

After much discussion, kitteh said he'd leave and mom escorted him out.

but then he changed his mind and tried to come back in...

Mom said, 'out you crazy kitteh' so he left.

Mom let us out so I could inspect the bed.

Let me tell you... it smelled like crazy kitteh!


Later in the afternoon mom let us out and look who was back!

As you can see I was barking mad!

And that crazy kitteh didn't even care!

Mom made me go inside and leave the kitteh alone.

I watched him all afternoon and into the evening.  He was still there when we went to bed!

Pippen says that it isn't a boy kitteh... boys wouldn't be crazy like that.

Only GIRLS are crazy!

I tend to agree... hope that kitteh doesn't come back today!

Super Dog!

Yep... I know.  I look just like an ordinary dog to you... but in reality...

once I pee on the special fire hydrant I turn into...


Faster than a speeding bullet...

Able to leap a sidewalk...

in one...

okay... maybe TWO bounds...

and then when I've saved the world... all I need to do is shake it off.

and I'm back to regular, ordinary, every day Pippen.

Schnauzers are UGLY!


Yep, you read that right...  Schnauzers are ugly!  At least that's according to the grocery store clerk that mom was talking to yesterday.

Here's the story...  Mom went out and did some shopping and managed to remember to get us treats.  When she was going through the checkout, the lady there wanted to know what kind of dog mom had.  Mom said a Havanese and a Schnauzer.

And the lady (I use the term loosely...) said, 'oh!  Schnauzers... I think they are the ugliest dogs around!  Don't get me wrong... they've go GREAT personalities but they are UG-LEE!'


Schnauzers are CUTE!

Schnauzers are SCRUFFY!!!

Schnauzers are FUNNY!!!

Schnauzers are EXUBERANT!!!

Schnauzers are LOVERS!!!

This is what I think of you grocery store clerk lady!

and you can have some of this too!

Sam and I will be picketing the store later to make sure she apologizes to me profusely!  If you'd like to join us, bring your sign to the grocery store at 10 today, we'll make sure she's sorry then!

Friday Fights!

Here's some shocking news for everyone...

We like to wrestle and fight!

Who woulda thunk it, right?  Us being boys and all!

Today, I don't know what I did...

but Sam got ticked off.

Let me tell you...

He ain't heavy... he's my brudder!

Later on though, I showed him my awesome spinning moves.

I'm so fast, Sam can't catch me!

Do you have any special evasive fighting moves?

A Visit to the Habitat by the Teddys - A Guest Post!

Hey ho!  We're the Teddys!  Wilbur hails originally from the pet store and Ethel came all the way from a garage sale.  Today we are visiting the BIG BED at the Habitat where we reside.  Hope ya'll can join us!

Our first stop takes us to the Northeast sector of Big Bed where you can find the orange feline most days.  Wilbur is poking him to see if we can get a reaction... no luck today.

Over in the southern sector we meet up with Froggy.  Black and White Dog likes to sleep here quite a bit.  We decided to take our chances and line up for a group photo.

Waving to ya'll...

Because we like a bit of adventure in our travels we decided to get up a little closer to the 'Jaws of Death'!

Ethel had an unfortunate accident and was almost smothered but not to worry she still has her squeaker...

As you can see I am the ever attentive partner and pulled her out and checked her vital signs... 

And just to show everyone how darn brave I am... I posed right under the 'Jaws of Death'!

As you can see, Black and White Dog likes to move around and has now inhabited the upper Northwest sector. 

We toodled back over to the Northeast to check out the Orange Feline and got too close to the business end... now that's a totally different kind of adventure travel!  P U!

To conclude our tour we went to the Southeast and posed right by Grey Dog Butt. 

Hope you all enjoyed today's tour of the BIG BED at the Habitat!
