Hey guys and girls sorry I havent had a chance to blog this week so far (mommies been sick with a sinus thing). My week so far has gone really really good this weekend on the other hand was not so good... I got in MAJOR trouble with my papaw foxx this past sunday we were outside he was about to take us on a walk and I ran off to chase another doggy and well I wouldnt come back to him so when I got back he yelled and yelled and yelled at me I was sooo scared I peeed on myself but I deserved it I had mommy and gable and papaw soooo worried I was going to get by a car or worse, but I learned my lesson never to run off from momma and papaw and gable and even daddy .... but who would run away from my daddy I dont see him enough as it is so when I do see him I spend every minute with him!


Daddy UPDATE!!!: the latest news on daddy (mommy never keeps me updated on these things but these beagle ears are good for something!!) Daddy is supposed to go into manager training somewhere around april 15th (which me and mommy will be in Memphis but thats another story) and then he will stay there for a little while we think about a month or two and then by mommies birthday which is in JULY I should have my VERY OWN HOUSE!!!!

I have noticed that SPRING IS HERE!!!! FINALLY after that last snow storm we got I think its finally decided to stay warm! YaY!! but you know what that means that means with spring and flowers and bunny wabbits showing up also means rain and my mommy doesnt like to take us outside to potty in the rain and we dont have a fenced in backyard so she has too! so that means shorter walkies ...... for me :-(

Dogs and Deer.

Typically I'm not a fan of deer. Well, it's not that I don't like deer-- all in all, they're pretty cute creatures. I'm not a big fan of deer ticks. I don't want to see one, hear one, or have one anywhere near me. They're disgusting, vile, and... uggggghhhh!


My hatred of deer ticks brings The Human Male immense amounts of joy. When we first started dating and learned about it, I occasionally got a picture sent to me. In the years since, he's learned that it's much more fun to make me watch cute deer videos online and face the inner turmoil of being ensorcled* by giant, furry deer tick transportation devices.

Case in point: Andrew Sullivan had the CUTEST video posted on his blog today of a dog and deer playing in a yard together. The Human Male showed it to me after I'd settled in on the couch with Alice, unable to get up without exciting the puggle.


Oh, my goodness! Doesn't it make you want to MELT?! Look at how fast that little deer's legs go!

Of course, this led to us finding more cute dog-deer videos. Meet Pip and Kate:


Not only is this freaking adorable, the music's good. And if you want to see the cutest baby deer pictures ever, watch this one:


It looks like the user who took the videos has several more. Honestly, I was in absolute cute overload with these alone!

I will admit, one of my first thoughts when I saw little Kate rubbing her tiny deer head all over Pip was "What about the TICKS?!" Then I decided that there's probably a breed of deer out there that's born tick-repellant, and that Kate is one of them. Right? RIGHT?!


*"Ensorcled" is probably not a real word, but it's a very contagious Human Maleism. It means basically being super-smitten with something extra cute. I dare you not to be in love with something and not think "I'm ensorcled with this".

Maggie the little thief!


Maggie may look sweet and innocent, but she's always up to no good!

See her....eyeing my chewy bone! She's just waiting for Mommy to turn her back before she makes her move!

SEE! She's run off with my chewy bone! Someone call the puggle police! She's a thief!

That's right Maggie, in jail where you belong! Stealing is against the law!

BOL!
As you can see, we are getting along for the most part. We like to play the game of stealing each others toys and treats. I usually just let her win because she's a girl and she's so little.....but if she takes something I really want.....I let her know whos's boss!

Mr. Puggle® Movie Monday: Another Puggle on TV!

Another Puggle makes it on TV! Watch Here.

Funny thing, the puggle's sister is actually the naughty dog. The puggle is so calm. Are the puggles on the west coast better behaved or something? Is it the sun? That nose harness looks interesting though. Have any puggle posse people used it on their puggle? Any luck? Do tell. :)

Pawdicure

Mommy hopes this video will encourage anyone who has a hard time trimming their dog’s nails to keep trying eventhough it might seem like an impossible task.
Preston used to be terrified of nail trimming. Visits to the groomer were quite traumatizing for him. Mommy tried Peticure® but Preston ran away on the buzzing sound of the electric filer. Nail trimming was such a dreadful activity for both Mommy and Preston. For more than two years, Mommy had given up on trimming Preston’s nails. Luckily, his active lifestyle kept his nails naturally short. His dew claws were removed by the breeder so Mommy never has to worry about them.
This past winter was Preston’s first winter living in a place where there was a lot of snow. The de-icers on the ground made it hard to go for long walks. Running in the snow or grassy parks was just not enough to wear down his nails. Nail trimming became necessary again and Mommy wasn’t looking forward to doing it at all.
To Mommy’s surprise, nail clipping was so much easier this time around. Preston has become quite comfortable with his pawdicure, sometimes, he even falls alseep in the midst of it.

Preston’s pawdicure kit:
Preston's Pawdicure kit!
How does Preston learn to enjoy the nail clipping?
1. Growing up Preston is used to having his paws handled. Mommy likes holding his paws and wiggling his toes when cuddling.
2. Preston got two cheerios and a big praise if he let Mommy touch his toes with a nail clipper (without clipping). Repeat this many many times.
3. Then, move on to real clipping, Preston got two cheerios for each snap sound the clipper makes.

And many many cheerios later…

My 1st Easter Egg Hunt at PAWS Adventure #42


Me with one of my prizes from the PAWS Easter Egg Hunt 2010
Me hunting for just the right eggs!
Me with my eggs all in the carton! I did eat some treats out of a few egg before we got to the check out table...Shhh! Snicker Snicker!

Hello pups and humans and everyone else! It is a Beautiful Day here in Chicago IL USA. It might be a little cold for some but us Chi-Town Dogs are use to this weather. I had a Meetup scheduled today but I also wanted to check out the Tinley Park IL USA '2010 PAWS Easter Egg Hunt'. Human Granny did not want to drive deeper into the city by the lake (Lake Michigan that is) so we piled in the car and headed to the Suburbs. It was fun and I tried to grab as many eggs as I could Snicker! Snicker! I got many prizes and had a few treats out of the eggs before the Easter Bunny helpers could see if they had a prize in them. I made out like a bandit. And my tummy was full of treats before we even got home. So Happy Easter to all the Internet Fur Friends.
Blessings and Licks and Wags, Ariel ♥

IMPORTANT MESSAGE!!! READ ON FOR FURTHER INFO!!!

*Permission to crosspost this message*

Last night at agility class, a vet, who is a fellow agility student was
telling us about a case she had this week. The dog ate a child's teddy bear
and was very sick. When she opened the dog up to remove what she thought was
an intestinal obstruction she found a huge gelatin type mess inside and the
dogs intestines were black and the tissue dead. The dog will die - no surgery
can fix him up - there was no living intestine left from stomach to colon.

This was not an obstruction..... so she called the manufacturer of the Teddy
Bear on a quest to find out what the gel was and what killed the dog. Turns
out the stuffing in children's toys contains ingredients for flame
retardants and mite control! It is designed to be come a gel. It is highly
toxic. Now you would think a child's toy would be safe because it is for
children, but they don't expect a child to eat the stuffing of the toys...
huummmm that seems a bit scary too. But we all know dogs demolish stuffed
toys.

So do not give or buy your dog any children's stuffed animals... some people
get them at goodwill etc. The vet will be posting a warning and story and I
will send any other facts as needed and as I learn more. Maybe some
children's toys do not have this ingredient, but better to be safe then
sorry. So meanwhile, make sure all your dog toys are for dogs. Please pass
this on... it is a horrible death she described and one that can be avoided.

So please, please, please - Keep the hooman stuffies away from us doggies!

Fetch at the Park

One of my favourite things to do is go down to the park near our house and play fetch with a stick or with my Chuck-It. I love to run as fast as I can. Boomer can really run too. It's fun to see who can get to the stick/ball first!

"Dad, throw the stick!"

If he doesn't throw it I will try to switch the game to a game of tug!


Boomer LOVES running in the park too!

It's a beautiful day for a run here! Boomer and I are heading to a play date with our doggie friend Moxie this morning. I will try to remind Mom to bring her camera so we can post photos later!
