"A Witty Saying Proves Nothing"

More Toys For Moi?!?!
“He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.”

My Second Christmas!

Christmas is so fun! and this one was just as awesome as my first Christmas! I already got a couple presents early because I needed them, like my jacket and my orthopedic mattress. I didn't get too many toys this year because I pretty much have them all. I mean, my toy box is as big as me, and it overflows with toys.
  The first thing I did was find the two yummy goodness treats that Mamma hid, of course. I got books that Mamma will read to me that will teach me how to do tricks! She wants to teach me to get a beer out of the fridge, and I wanna learn to make her get a treat out of the cabinet.

I got another interactive toy called Dog Magic by Nina Ottosson. Mamma has to hide a cookie under one of the bones and I have to find it. I've done it every time so far! This is supposed to be the beginner one of all of Nina's toys so now I can try a harder one. Mamma likes to give me interactive toys. She hopes that if she fills them up with treats or peanut butter, I'll play with them while she's at the shelter everyday, but I usually don't. I just wait by the window for Mamma to come home, and recently I began licking my foot till it's raw. I've developed a little case of separation anxiety.

One of my presents from my Gramma are these really cool collars that are supposed to help with that. They are infused with Lavender and Chamomile (and totally safe) to help make me feel calm. I don't yet know how well they work because Mamma hasn't left me home alone yet, but I totally smell delicious.

I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas too!

Light and Love and Belly Rubs!

Dear My Mamma,

   I know you have been really busy, and sometimes you are tired. I know you have a really hard job and it weighs heavy on your heart. I know Sunday is your only day off and you want to get a lot of stuff done. I know it's supposed to rain for most of the day. But can we please please please have a Lucca Dog Day?

I promise to behave like woah!

We would've called her Haven

  Welp, my Mamma is back at her old job that doesn't pay her any monies everyday, well six days a week actually. She has designated work clothes that she only wears there and she takes them off the moment she gets home, but I still get a couple sniffs of her when she first comes home. I usually wiggle my nub a million miles an hour when I do this, partly because I'm happy she's home, and partly because she smells like other doggies.

We both wanted all of Dolly's attention like woah.
  One of the other doggies that I smell on her is named Ruby. She has only been at the shelter for three weeks, including two weeks in quarantine where they stay so their Mommies can find them, but she has lost a real lot of weight, Like twenty pounds because she is so stressed at that place. My Ma calls her a couch potato and says that Ruby just likes to lay on her lap a lot. She spends alot of time with her every day.
  Well, Mamma thought Ruby should be my sister so I went to her work with her and met this Ruby dog. My Ma's friend Dolly took Ruby out of her kennel, and we met each other. We did good on the leash so we went into the run to play and frolick together.
  I didn't like the generic treats that the shelter has cuz I'm used to the good stuff so I politely dropped my treat in front of Ruby and let her have it. She snatched it right up cuz she's too skinny and doesn't know about organic blueberry and pumpkin treats yet. We had one scuffle (that I started) but it was over real fast and Ruby forgave me.
   Mamma decided that I need help still on my manners, but I would come back the next day and every day until she was comfortable with bringing Ruby home. We went for a walk together and then Mamma brought me home and then went back to work. She loves Ruby very very much so she talked to me about her and told me that it's not my decision and she is embarrassed by my behavior sometimes which made me feel bad so I said I would behave but it might take me a little time.
  Unfortunately, Mamma's boss tested Ruby with cats and she totally failed. Mamma had a dream a couple days before she met Ruby that her friend Kevin came to see her with a big, huge red pit bull and he bit Punkinhead, so Mamma made the decision that Ruby would not be my sibling. I was kinda looking forward to a playmate.
   So in the meantime, Mamma tells anyone who will listen that Ruby is a wonderful dog and a lap dog/couch potato that really needs a furever home with a couch, and she still comes home smelling like her. I'll still go to work with Mamma sometimes and meet other dogs, maybe even play with Ruby again. I will continue to work on my manners, and when the right dog comes along I will (hopefully) be ready to share my toys and my Mom. I hope Ruby finds a home with a couch real soon, because even though I had an attitude with her she was really nice. I just don't like when Mamma gives other people attention. I'm working on it.
