My Wish to You...

No matter what you celebrate or believe in, I want to wish you and yours a joyous holiday filled with happiness and laughter.

I know I had myself a nice laugh when the girl was trying to take my picture!! Behold the not so fruitful fruits of her first labors! Muhahahhaa!

I can't wait for my first Christmas to get here already!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Long time no bloggy!

It feels like forever since I last blogged! You can blame it mostly on the girl (she's not my girl when behaving so poorly) and on a thing called The Business. Mom and dad even have been gone a lot and also say it's because of business and the time of year. Whatever! If they don't shape up fast, I'll give them some work to do, alright. So far I've been a gentleman. Hope they don't make me change my mild-mannered ways!!

So the 19th was my 7 month woofday!! When the girl got home, she found a small scene of destruction - tee hee:
Anyway, that was the end of my red doggie toy. So later on that day, I overheard the girl showing mom and dad what I'm getting for Christmas. I ran up and saw her holding a toy that obviously was for me, so I demanded it and they gave it to me... for my 7 month woofday!! Woooo hooo! I can hardly wait for Christmas to open up all of my gifts!!

I also want to thank my friends Sake and Boone and their mom Liz for sending me a super cool Christmas present!! I loved my peanut butter bark bar and I am loving my toys, too!

Holiday Tag-a-roooooo!

I have been Holiday Tagged by Ronin, Comet and BLU! WOOOOO! I am supposed to list 3 things I want for Christmas and 3 things I definitely do NOT want.

All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth... my two front - Oh right, my girl saved one of my fangy canines for me, so I guess I'm all set here.

Gimme Gimme:
1. TOYS!!!!!! I like 'em squeaky, chewy, kongy, bouncy, bally, rattly, rolly, and ropey. Just in case my girl gets a mental block or something.
2. New YUMMIES. I am bored of my peanut butter treats and my beef jerky treats. I really like the liver treats I get at the pet store and hope that the girl noticed.
3. Time to play with towels. The people always wipe my paws clean and then take the towels away. Gone are the days when they took me for towel rides across the kitchen floor!
4.* Bonus Round: Unlimited cuddles and kisses and hugs.
5.* And most OF ALL... for the laptop to go away so the girl can play with me all day. ALL DAY LONG, I TELL YOU!
Don't Wanna, not Gonna:
1. No more puppy classes, man! I don't like those other doggies and I don't think I need to play with them!!!!!!!!!! I certainly don't think I need to re-learn dumb things I learned months ago like "sit" and "stay." Those other doggies need to be in remedial puppy school!!!!!
2. A lump of COAL!!!!!!! I am so mad at the girl for threatening me with this! Ahem... I mean... threatening whomever stole her shoes... *cough*
3. The people to close doors in the house anymore. See, it's like this. Being left alone during the day stinks, but I do need a break from these freakshows every once in a while, you know? But when they're home, why do they close doors sometimes?? I gotta take showers too, but you don't see ME closing the door on THEM. I just gotta say... I asked for sauce, not sass! Especially from you, girl! Pppssshhh! Talk to the paw.

So, there you have it. I would like to Holiday Tag Hana, Casper, FuFu, Ender, and Zach!!
The Rules: The player of this game starts with "3 things he/ she would love to get for Christmas" and also has to list "3 things he/ she definitely does not want to get for Christmas". Then he/she tags 5 friends and list their names. The ones who get tagged need to write on their blogs about their Christmas wishes, as well as state this rule clearly, then tag 5 more victims. And the one who tags need to leave a comment that says "you've been Christmas tagged!" in their comments and tell them to read your blog.

A Word from the Management

Dear Girl,

I have been apprised of a certain circulating rumor concerning the whereabouts of one pair of Italian leather heels. I understand that you claim aforementioned heels as yours. Between 9 AM and 9:30 AM on the morning of December 11th, 2006, you apparently searched the house for your missing shoes until they were located near my crate in a place that you would never think to look.
Said heels were in impeccable condition with no evidence of chewing, slobber, teeth marking, or other damage. If your suspicions are true, these shoes did indeed travel up a minimum of two flights of stairs. As I am sure you are aware, accidents sometimes happen in transporting objects up and down stairs via the mouth. Although I am unable to corroborate, confirm, or deny your suspicions, I thought it my civic duty to tell you how truly unfortunate it would be if another, more valuable, possession of yours (such as a laptop) were to meet its untimely demise in such a blatant act of theft.
Consider yourself warned.
May it also be said that these incidents often occur when neglect is incurred by furry family members due to excessive human workload causing disruption of playtime and cuddletime. Surely the responsible party was only seeking to delay your departure to spend more time with you. Actually, you should be flattered.
I thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Yours in Innocence,
The Management

PS Surely you are not truly considering bestowing a lump of coal for Christmas upon said responsible party.

Here Comes Santa Claus

I had puppy class today! I did really well. Dad and the girl came with me. The humans are trying to teach me "leave it" and "take it" so I'm really sneaky and smart about it. First they try to tempt me with the "leave it" treat, but I ignore it and they all talk about how I'm a quick learner. Then I eat the "take it" treat. Then when no one is close enough to stop me, I eat the "leave it" treat too. HEE HEE! Ahh. I'm awesome.

Then I went to meet Santa. OK, so he's not creepy. He's actually a pretty cool guy who has three boxers of his own and who couldn't wait to get the heck out of there so he could drink a cold beer and... oh wait, I wasn't supposed to share all of this. Right, right. Sorry, Santa. My bad.

It was a little freaky what with all the paparazzi who wanted to take pictures of me and all of the other doggies (surprisingly no one tried to eat me this time). If I look a little dazed, it's just the flashes! Next time, do it right. ROLL OUT THE RED CARPET!

Ticked off!!

I am so mad at the girl!!!!!

She has not played with me ONCE in two days. Unless you count the pathetic 5 minute breaks she takes from doing work "playing!"

And we used to romp around outside. Now instead she wants me to hurry myself up and come back in. Why? She's cold. What a GIRL...

Furthermore, I haven't been able to post because she's been hogging MY computer. I can't get to my bloggie if the girl continues to behave so rudely.

Oh, and I also hear that I'm getting KIBBLE for dinner tonight. What the... ?? Whatever happened to keeping me in the lifestyle I've grown accustomed to?? Sushi, rice, california rolls, bread, eggs, potatoes, beef, chicken, bananas, apples... As you can see, I'm not fussy. I've even given up the champagne, as it upset my girl that I was drinking so young.

But honestly, girl - kibble?

Aaaaarf. When will she come upstairs and play with me? I'm so blue...

Oh, forget you, girl! I have my toys and I don't NEED you!

I am planning a mission to overthrow my girl's laptop. I don't get what's so great about it, but she is always neglecting me for that STUPID machine. Sure, I blog on it, but I could ALWAYS go to the public dogbrary. What do you think I should do to her laptop??

A Tree Grows in Ronak-land

Tonight's events are simply mind-boggling! Doggies around the world, listen up! There is a tree in the middle of my zoomie playground (the living room). And what's more... my humans PUT IT THERE!

Here's what happened. Big brother and sister-in-law came over and there was music on loud and everyone ate a lot - which is good for me because someone always sneaks me something (usually mom, hee hee). I got to taste a lot of things, but you can't tell the girl because I don't want her to know, so here it is in code: I got a bite of shrimp (mm yummy), a bite of a california roll (super yummy), some soft bread, and crackers!! Plus whatever crumbs I could find. Oh, and the girl even gave me dessert... read on!

Here's when it gets weird. A box was brought up... and suddenly a tree was being made... except it looked like a tree and it felt like a tree, but it didn't smell like a tree. Hmm. Isn't that curious?

And then everyone decorated it and sang stuff and the piano was played. And now every few seconds the tree gets all twinkly. I got to hang a fuzzy white ornament that looked exactly like a chunk of me!! It was so much fun! I love having a tree in my living room, even if it means a new zoomie route (I can work around it!!).

Then the humans ate MORE. And my girl let me sample her CUPCAKES!! She says that she made a super special one just for me without bad stuff in it. Yesssss.

My girl says that sometime soon, we will hang our stockings. She needs to get one for big sister-in-law because this is her first Christmas with our family. Don't tell the girl, but I already found my stocking. It has a paw on it so I know that it is for me!! She just needs to write my name on it all sparkly and then we'll be in business! Mmmm, my mouth is watering just thinking about how many cupcakes you could stuff into a stocking...

Before big brother left, we played chase (I WON!) and then I got lots of pats. Happy Woofidays, everyone!!!!!!!

The Crystal Ball

Well, this morning was my second puppy class, and I rocked it! Met some cool peeps and cool pups. The girl says I need to work on my Modus Operandi... dubbed The Stealth Sniffer - I sneak up on the other doggie and sniff its butt and hope for the best!! It goes over ok with some... not so well with others. Got some good pats. Squiggled out of taking a picture with Santa, who was major creepiness.

Tonight my slaves - uh, I mean my humans - went out for Chinese food. I would have been pretty ticked off, except the girl promised to bring me back something yummy. Sure enough, she brought me back a fortune cookie!!

How do we get to the good stuff?!?!

Mmmm! That was yummy! Now read my fortune, slave!! Er... girl!

"Mighty forces will come to your aid." GASP! Oh no! What could this mean?!?!!

Oh, how am I ever going to sleep tonight?
