MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

Merry Christmas to every human and every pup! I hope everyone got everything they wished for!

This morning started off a little rough...I had a bad tummy ache overnight and had to wake Daddy up several time in the middle of the night to let me go outside and potty. Daddy is so proud of me for whining and making noise to let him know that I needed to go potty and not make a sloppy brown mess. I know better! In the process, I think I might have seen Santa Paws make a landing at my house. When I woke up Christmas morning, look what I found...
I received almost everything on my list to Santa Paws and more. Mama forgot to put it in the picture, but I also received a new Super Chewer Black Kong toy and a red Vest Harness. I love everything I received...with the exception of the Vest Harness...that one kind of feels like wearing clothes, so I'm not a big fan. I think I'll stick to the collar.

Thank you Santa Paws!

Dear Santa Paws....



Dear Santa Paws,

I hope all is well. Please give everyone you visit my well wishes. This year has flown by very quickly, and I almost forgot it was time to write my wishlist letter.
Like years past, I've been a very good girl all year long. I haven't ruined any furniture, nor have I chewed up anything I wasn't suppose to. I did however, give my Mama and Daddy a major scare in the Summer time; I had three teeth removed and was at the Vet for a whole day! It was scary, but I proved to be a brave pup!

This year, my letter will entail wishes from me, Duke and Susie. For Christmas this year, please send:

  • Dingo chewies
  • Pet Green Treats
  • Rawhide bones
  • Greenies
  • Peanut butter
  • Squeaky Plush toys
  • More trips to the park.....and a new house for Mama to buy!

Please DO NOT send the following:

  • clothes
  • costumes
  • diet kibbles
  • baths
  • nail cuttings
  • teeth brushings

Hopefully this letter will find you in time for Christmas! May there be peace on earth and good health to all!

Merry Christmas!

Full Day!

On Sunday, I was kept busy from the time I woke up until it was time for bed! I haven't had a full day like that in a long, long while. I got to go to brunch with Mama and Daddy and afterwards I was taken to the dog park at Auditorium Shores. There were especially a lot of dogs out because it was the first pretty day in over 2 weeks. As you can see, we do not get many fall foliage. That one tree behind me is as good as it gets as far as fall leaves.After we got home,...of course I was given my usual bath after the park. I was scrubbed down and sprayed with some doggy pawfume. Mama said that I had to smell pretty because we were all invited to a Christmas Pawty and I had to be presentable.

Mama had anticipated that I would get along with the party host's dog...a pure Maltese named Nigel. To her dismay...Nigel didn't much like me. He barked at me from the time I entered his house until we left. At first, I was being a very good girl and ignored all his barking...after a continuous 10 minute of his fretting, I finally raised my lips at him. Mama was so surprised that I would yell back because I normally am very easy going and laid back. Daddy was very proud of me because I stuck up for myself. We didn't get into a brawl or anything, but I showed him that I was a brave pup.

All the humans at the party absolutely loved me. They all said I smelled great because of the bath and pawfume...I guess Mama knows what she is doing.


Here is a picture of me and Nigel. It was a miracle to be able to capture this picture because he sure did bark at me every chance he got. Nigel was sitting in his Mom's lap and I was just being courteous.

HAPPY HOWL-O-WEEN!!!

Its that time again for ghouls and drools! I have been really good all year, so Mama decided I was going to be an Angel for Howl-O-Ween! Last year I was quite the opposite...

HAPPY HOWL-O-WEEN!!!

My costume had wings, a halo and a fu-fu dress! For a Puggle that hates clothes...it was kind of pretty!
Look...if I try really hard and run really fast...I might be able to fly!
I hope every ghoul and pup have a SAFE and HAPPY HOWL-O-WEEN!

Have an extra treat for me!!!

I love our Fall weather!!!!

Today was another great day at the dog park. This time, I got to visit a new park at Austin's Auditorium Shores. The park was big with lots of puppies. We had access to the water on Lady Bird Lake and had views of the Austin skyline. I got to pose with the statue of Stevie Ray Vaughn, which helps display Austin as "The Music Capital of the World." Austin also has this new campaign, "Scoop the Poop." Austin is a very clean and environmentally green city. We are also super pet friendly and want to make sure the dogs and the humans share the parks, so the city adopted a new campaign reminding all the humans to "scoop the poop!" There was even a huge pile of brown dirt with a doggy cartoon, to remind every human that if the poop doesn't get picked up, it can be as big as the mound displayed...The city put up a huge shovel with the message painted on it to remind all the humans and doggies who uses the park. See how big the statue is...

100th POST!!!!

This is the 100th post on my blog and it is over one of my favorite subject....FOOD! Today, Mama made me my favorite snack, fresh cooked Chicken Breast..umm, ummm yum! The package of chicken was pretty hefty! Before it was cooked... After it was cooked.... Then my Mama pulls it apart into strips. The chicken broth is not wasted, Mama bottles the broth up and sometimes it is used to soften my kibbles. I sometimes get chicken strips as a treat, but I mainly get chicken during trick training. Regardless, when I get the chicken, I'm just happy to have chicken in my life!!!!

Bull Creek Dog Park

The weather has finally gotten cooler, enough for me to go to the Dog Park. Daddy insisted on taking me out because he felt sorry that I've been cooped up all Summer due to the heat. So today...to my surprise, I was taken to a famous dog park here in Austin....Bull Creek!

I was HORRIFIED! It is a dog park with lots of water. For those of you who knows me...I hate the water!
Needless to say, Mama and Daddy both got in the creek and left me on the bank of the creek to fend for myself. Being that I'm a Mama's girl, I had to follow her where ever she went...so in the water I went....eeeekkkk!
There were a lot of other puppies having a GREAT time...me, not so much. At one point, I found refuge on a rock sitting higher above the water and refused to get off. Mama finally came and got me and made me tread water.Daddy was great at encouraging me along.

Then I finally SWAM when I got to the deep end. Too bad Daddy forgot to charge to battery for the camera because Mama was not able to capture me in swimming action.

Both Mama and Daddy were super proud of me because I ended up having a GREAT time at Bull Creek. I finally conquered my fear and can officially now say that I can SWIM! I was so extremely tired afterwards when we got home, but Mama still insited on giving a shower. Overall, I had a GREAT time!

"CoCo Speaking!"

My Mama always makes sure that I keep her entertained. My newest accomplishment is speaking to her! Remarkably, it only took two days to learn to "speak." Of course Mama does her best in making sure I stay on my toes. Tell me what you think?

We Moved!

The humans have been too busy to help me keep up with my blog lately. We have moved since my last post. My Uncle Gary has bought a house and we've moved further away from the city.
Mama now lives 15 minutes further away than before. I'm sad that it will take her longer to come visit me! She did make sure that I had all my goodies packed up for the move.
It's lazy days until the Summer heat is over!

Way Back Wednesday!!!

Daddy found a disc full of my baby pictures. This was a pic of the day I came home...9/2/2006...I was a mere 4lbs....I enjoyed chewing from a very young age...preferably DINGO bones...It was love at first sight for me and Daddy!Mama made sure I had enough chewies...I would plop down in the middle of playing to take a nap... Then I was up and about again...
I love to play!
I was a smart pup from the beginning. I knew where to lay to cool off...the tile is always cooler than the carpet.I was a tiny thing with sharp teeth...look, the mini tennis ball was stuck to my tooth!Was I a cutie patootie or what?Where is CoCo?I've always been a pain in Susie's rear...

Now I'm bigger than her and I hold my own!

Enjoy,

Dog days of Summer!

It has been the hottest Summer on record here in Texas. The closest thing I get to daring to get sun exposure is catching the rays that beams through the window in the mornings. Other than that, it is lazy days til it cools off.
Nothing beats relaxing and napping all day indoors in the cold air conditioning.
Although, I do miss sniffing at the dog park and having extra long walks. It is just not possible when the temperature has been an average of 103 degrees. I think today's forecast said it will be record 105 again!
I also wear a black fur coat all year long, so again...Indoors in the COLD A/C it is until at least Halloween!

I also received a lot of treats. My birthday cake and cookies were from Groovy Dog Bakery, which is local here in Austin.Mama bought my birthday cake there last year too...they are super yummy and super organic! Happy Birthday to Me!!! My birthday cake this year tasted of honey, apple and carob. It was delicious! Mama made me pose with all my presents.I was not very amused!!!Don't you think I look ridiculously silly in that frilly birthday tiara???I celebrated with my roommates, Susie and Duke.Duke was not very amused when he had to wear the birthday hat. We all had our own slice of cake.I gobbled mine up in a heart beat! I wanted seconds. Birthdays are great! I had a great one!
