I love the beach...
I hate sunblock on my nose...
I love to sniff...
I sniffed a rock...
Then I sniffed some sand...
Then I got to go off my lead because there was nothing exciting around to bounce about with...
I found something to sniff... it stunk bad...
so I rolled in it...
Mum said I had to go for a swim, something about dead rotten stinky fish butt???
I'm allowed to go swimming again!!!
I have to go get my favourite orange ball cause mum keeps chucking it in the sea?!? Hellooooo!!!! I like that Ball! I want to keep it!
She makes me swim out way past my head! I love the beach...
I like to wee in the sea. It feels nice...
I got nothing now...
I got no friends to play with.
I got no running on Saturday mornings with 250 people.
I got no balls to chase after, no little car, no cats, no Frisbee.
I got no freedom to run in the park off lead
I got no swimming at the beach.
I got no Friday evening cricket.
What have I got? A few small walks a day and only for 30-40 minutes (better than the 10mintures I used to get) and apparently I have to use ALL four legs! No Hopping, no bouncing, no lunatic dancing!
Dad's taking me back to the big white clinic that's far away in the car and he said I have t have more x-rays - they make me feel drunk there and I get a headache and I get hungry.. but Dad said I might be able to go to the beach afterwards... fingers crossed!
The countdown is on... I have 8 weeks down... only 12 to go until I can be free!!!!!
Oh... what can I do on lead??? I can still find stinky mud puddles, stick my head under and blow bubbles! Oh yes indeedy I can still do that!
They did this to me... The took me in the car and I woke up with a bright pink leg that no longer had a knee that could bend... then they took the special leg off and I had heaps of string in my leg and it got really sore and itchy and then my leg got really really fat and squishy and I lost my ankle somewhere and they kept trying to put frozen peas on me??? Frozen Peas? I usually get frozen mixed vege's in my dinner and ice cubes in my water but for some reason they kept wanting to put frozen peas on my leg... it was cold and I didn't like it that much... like not at all! Sometimes I made them follow me around the house with frozen peas... I tried to do it long enough that the peas got warmer.
Whenever mum and dad left me during the day time they gave me lots of home made liver treats and I stuck my head through a plastic hole and all of a sudden I was there...in the middle with no where to go and no thumbs to help... I was in the cone of shame... it made me wonder why they didn't like me anymore so I tried to look really sad and made them feel bad too! When they left me alone I couldn't chew my normal stuff... I didn't get any kongs, no peanut butter and no chewy treats... So I had to find things to do... the hallway was tricky to turn around in because the walls got in the way, I couldn't get the shoes off the shoe rack anymore but I could side swipe all the buttons on the stereo and change all the settings and I could angle Darth Vader into my cone so I could chew the lightsabre. Tasted of red! Red tastes yum!
Mum said that my Uncle Daniel had made me a present. I do like presents, I like presents for me, and presents for you and presents that the secret people puts through the door when no one else is at home... I like to open them for everyone!
What's special about Uncle Daniel? He cooks stuff everyday for people and he makes me homemade organic jerky at his house and it makes me go a little bit crazy! Or may be a lot crazy!
I got some!.. It helps me with my cone of shame... it helps me not care about anything except getting the jerky in my belly. I love love love it!
Want to know the best bit after the jerky gets put away so I don't eat it all in one go??? Making sure that I got every single bit out of the packet! Thank you Uncle Daniel! You're amazing!
... So I got to take my new leg home and it was so weird... It was wrapped up so tight I couldn't bend it... One day I got it stuck on the front step behind me because it forgot to come with me... that hurt a bit...
I was given lots of little things to take to make me feel better, slightly wasted and in no pain... they were super yuck and sometimes fizzed up in my mouth! What the Dog was that about?? I ate a maggot and it crawled on my tongue, squirmy little worm and then it went pop! The fizzy yucky things were then put in my dinner and it made all my dinner disgusting! so I had to stop eating my dinner... I used to like dinner... then the yucky things went away and my dinner tasted yum again and as a treat I got all these extra little cream cheese balls! Totes Yum - I love them so much I just swallow them whole... and sometimes I get sleepy.
I got bored of sleeping on the same side... Dad bought the astro-turf from the garden inside so I didn't slide over around the house. Thanks Dad!
Both Mum and Dad have decided that they should carry me up and down the stairs... Not only do I think that it's stupid but I make sure I make it as awkward as possible and make all my legs and neck go straight and stiff... it's funny as!
And then one morning mum rubbed my belly and tickled my ears and cut my tight leg wrapping off and we found my leg underneath - it was naked and someone had done some crazy slice and dice and sticharoo on me!
Blue stitches are fun cause I can see them really well!
No licking though... no licking or touching or nibbling... otherwise it's time for 'the cone of shame'... no one likes the cone of shame.... To Be Continued....
Last week we went cruising in the car... I love it! the wind in my ears and up my nose, the new smells and sights and things we do whenever we get there... but we went cruising in the morning on a normal 'Why do you leave me?' day... and that's not normal....
We finally got to a nice shiny place where everyone was happy to see me and wanted to pat me... and then they wanted to touch me and prod me on my legs... I have a sore leg so I didn't think that was much fun. We seemed to be stuck in a small room forever and after a while I could hear all these other dogs calling out to me and they were saying all kinds of stuff... I could hear one dog asking where the ball was - like - the whole time!... and one dog saying it's a trap! Run! Get out while you can!... One dog sounded really sad and scared and was howling, I decided to hide under the table in the small room while my mum and dad talked to the tall friendly man who was showing them lots of bones! I really wanted one for breakfast but the tall man said I couldn't have it... I was totally hungry and everything! Then it happened... they left me... my family left me, at least I got to get a tour of the new shiny place... I then got to see the inside of a room just big enough for me! - it had a view of the people walking past so it was o.k... and it came with things that made me sleepy... I heard someone say 'I was wasted' but then I had a nap, I'd figured I find out what they meant later...
Later seemed like forever... I woke up from my nap and something was different... my leg was so sore... and they put some clothes on it?? What The Dog had they done?? I was really unhappy and felt sick and I didn't know where my toes had gone? Something wasn't right... Then I got to get out of my room with a view and I walked through a door to see my peeps!!! They must have finally realised they forgot me, they must of felt so stupid to forget something like me! We left the big shine-o-rama and I got to go cruising again! But it wasn't the same - Mum kept wanting to cuddle me in the backseat... Wish she'd stop touching me! And it was hard to look out the window as my leg seemed to be stuck... but at least I got to go home... mum said there was a 'cone of shame' waiting for me at home... sounds yum to me! I'm hungry!..... TBC...
I got my toys out in the weekend... I like to get them all out one by one and then pick which one is lucky to have it's eyes, ears or tails pulled off!
Sometimes I try to keep them alive for a little while so we can hang out together then other times they just have to have their legs pulled off and their tender soft white furry insides pulled out bit by bit until it looks like it has exploded! I do love a good exploding toy - I like the ones where the eyes are hard and I can pull them out of their funny little squishy heads! ...pop!
Every time I bring my toys out my mum puts them all back in their box? Now I just to go and get them all again...
Sometimes I carefully select a shoe from the shoe rack when no on eis at home to play with me... apparently they aren't toys... but they are fun to chew! I love shoe chews.... sssshhhhoooooo choooo's - Totes Yum!
Then there is my rawhide chew collection... and my chewy Hippo!
I love throwing these about the place and pouncing on them.
One day I will try to swallow them whole and regurgitate them back up because I haven't chewed them properly...
And best of all...
This is my Bucket of Bones!
Once I'm done chewing all the good bits off when it comes home from the butcher then I get to leave it all stinky until I chew it some more! I collect them and pick out a different bone when I want!
It's been raining and raining and raining... like a lot! The rain came downwards and sidewards and eventually it started coming upwards!
When it rains a lot the swimming pools come out to play and I love being swamp dog. I like to go fishing in the swamp pools and swimming in the swamp pools, and running in the swamp pools and lying in the swamp pools and my favourite is blowing bubbles in the swamp pools!
I like to catch the little bugs in the water and follow them around and stick my head under and see where they go.
I do love being swamp dog, I get the zoomies and go a bit crazy... sometimes I have to have a shower on the front steps of the house cause sometimes swamp dog stinks of swamp... I really do love swamps... I've never seen a cat in a swamp but I keep looking just in case...
I have a friend and his name is Satan. Every one knows Satan at the park - he is big and soft.. actually he is ginormous and really soft and furry and has a big heart and we've known each other for about 2 years and we walk around the park sometimes.
Satan and I like the same things. We like fish and balls and sticks. Sometimes we walk around the park together carrying sticks together. Sometimes we play tug of war with sticks and Satan is the only dog that I know that won't give up on playing just like me. One day we just stood at each end of a stick and waited for 25 minutes until one of us gave up... Who gave up first??? It totally wasn't me!!
I love Satan and I hope that he never sits on me because he looks really heavy.
On the weekend I got to go to the park and roll about and then I got to walk around where the cats hang out and I totally saw one poking it's furry head out of the drain where it lives! It did not want me coming in for a bowl of water so I figured I'd wait... One day they'll see how much I love them and we'll have sardines for tea! ...and then I went for a drive in the car and we went past the Park of Big where the horses are that drop magical warm presents from the sky. We kept going until we arrived at a place which smelled a little like the sea and a little like the pub and we had sausages and big meaty balls of goodness!
I found a new friend - I liked him - I wanted him to stay... but he said he
had to leave and then he just vanished!
He was little and interesting and had skinny little legs.
When it was night time and it was past my bedtime we went for a walk and saw a big fire on top of a big building! Dad said something about packing backs in there.. or was it backing packs? We went to say hello and saw all these excited people on the street dressed in howl-o-ween - some people were dressed with big packs on their backs and were from another land and they tickled my head. Then on our way back home I found a empty bottle and ran around on the plastic floor covering the grass... it was brilliant! And then I slept on the bed!
