It's been so so sooo very long...

since my last confession. JUST JOKING! Although Mommy says I probably have a LOT to confess to so it would probably be worth it..

I've missed all my blogging pals and pups out there. Boy has my life changed. I went from being the spoiled rotten, only child that my parents adored and treated like a King..to being the big brother..which also means the "other" child that barely gets noticed, who never gets treatsies..but definitely gets yelled at! (Kaiser's Mommy interjecting here..Kaiser does not like acting like an older brother, and since his father and I have not been devoting all of our attention to him and doting on him all the time and taking him everywhere like we used to - Kaiser has been acting out..not destroying anything..but acting like a spoiled brat and not listening to anything we say until the 18th time we say it or until we make threats of punishment.)

They won't even let me near my little sister except for a sniff or a foot lick here and there. Something about me just getting too excited and being rambunctious..whatever. All they do is ooh and ahhh over her..and take pictures of her. Mommy did take some newer pics of me and Daddy last weekend but I'll have to share them with you laterz..until then..here's me..in the blurry corner of a picture of my sister doing something 'SOO AWESOME' (according to my parents)..I mean I lift my head all the time with no troubles and they don't sit there taking pictures of me trying to do it..

Here's another picture of her..no matter how jealous I am, I guess I do have to admit she's a cutie..good looks run in the family. :)

I'll write more laterz..gotta start packing..Mommy, Daddy and baby Makaeda are going to NC next weekend..so I get to go on vacation too..not with them..but somewherez..


Happy Howlidays 2008!!!

Just wanted to send love to all my friendzees.....

Mommy calls me "Santa's Little Helper"

Hope all of you get everything you hope and howl for this season!



Not much going on...

Hi all - so sorry so long yet again.  Mommy is just too freakin' concerned with this whole baby thing.  From going to the doctor to picking out nursery colors and "preparing" the house..it seems like a whole bunch of hub bub for nothing but what...my mom's belly (which by the way is getting bigger but I won't say that to her.)

I haven't been up to much since my birthday, kinda just enjoying being a year old.  Mommy and Daddy HAAAAAAD given me some extra freedom.  Please notice the past tense of that.  I was doing really well then Dad's friend Los came to stay with us for a night and it all went out the window..or started to anyways.  Dad/Los said that it must've been the scent of Los' female boxer Sheba but Mom SWEARS it has to do with me wanting attention and needing to show out..but I ended up peeing all over the floor on Friday AND then again on Saturday!  WHATEVER, stupid people!  THEN, Mommy and Daddy have started leaving me out of my crate when they go away for a couple hours and I had been doing really well at holding down the house for them...well I got curious and started fumbling around with things I shouldn't be near..like Mommy's Rainbow flip flops...and I accidentally (I swear it was an accident) chewed one up.  So yeah, that freedom is no more!

Other than that, not too much going on.  Mommy started a new bloggie for my lil' sis - oh I forgot to say that I'm going to get a new little sis and her name is Makaeda Hope..she should be here around March 5th!  Anyway, if any of you bloggie buddies want to check it out - you can find it at http://anevensweeterlife.blogspot.com.  Here are a few pics of me to hold you over, Mommy says I keep getting more and more handsome!


My First Barkday

Well SHOCK SHOCK!! As promised, Mommy actually felt like updating today so here we are, updating! On to the celebration. Little did I know, the parents actually had a dayful of activities planned for 1 year old me! It started off with a ride in the car - which I haven't gotten much of lately since I no longer go to work with Dad. This was me, waiting patiently to get in the car. You'll notice that I do not have a leash on and that's because I'm such a good boy around the complex that Daddy (and somtimes Mommy) lets me go on my walkies without one on...yep that's right - I've earned some trust!

After a nice, sunny ride in the car with nose poked out the slit in the window..we arrived at one of my FAVORITE places - Bark N' Bubbles!!! (Visit their site here: http://www.barknbubblesdogwash.com/) Everyone is so nice there and I LOVE venturing around the 2-story building. There are so many great smells, they have toys and treatsies. I usually can't have any of the treatsies because I only eat grain-free products but Mommy treated me to a few during my bath because I was such a good boy (or to get my attention since I'm a freak but whatever!)

While we were there, the cutest little pup came in and I swear I thought my Mommy wanted to take him home. I started whining and she claimed it was jealousy but I really just wanted to let them unlatch me so I could go play with him. He is 4 months old and his name is Biggie!! Maybe once he gets older, they'll let me actually play with him.

After we left, and another sunny ride in the car, Mommy took some long way back home and they made 2 stops on the way home...one to some Pet place (which I KNEW had to do with me) and then to some food place for Mommy and Daddy. Mommy gets so cranky now when she's hungry so I knew Daddy must have been forced to do that before taking me home to get pressies.

So, once we got home - I DUG into my own dinner of Wellness Core Ocean Formula (my new food that I LOVE and is the best thing ever in life.. (http://www.wellnesspetfood.com/dog_wellness_grain_ocean.html). After that, I was kinda pooped so I took a nice long snooze in the bed before everyone's bedtime. Dad and I stayed up watching TV because Mom goes to bed early these days..and then we went to bed. They told me before nightie nite that I'd get my pressies and such tomorrow (today).

So this morning, I just waited patiently - didn't even eat my breakfast because I was so excited. They had some big brown bag on one of the chairs and I kept trying to sniff it but they wouldn't let me...something about taking off tags and such. SO THEN...once Mommy got the scissors together - it was TIME...this is me stretching my neck around to see what was going on (notice the nice shiny coat thanks to Pops' wash the day before)..

Here's a pic of me and Ape, my new chewy toy that squeaks on his tummy, his hands and his feetsies! I really just like biting at his crazy hair. Then, there's my new rope ball. Mommy thought I wouldn't be able to lift this one - HAHA - what does she know about that though?!?

Matter of fact, here's the progression of my rope balls...and I can still lift and somewhat toss the biggest one. Just give me a couple weeks..it'll be hitting her (Mommy) upside the head just like I've done with the smaller ones by my nice tosses.

Mommy and Daddy also bought me 2 collars - this is my new regular collar, it's really nice and sturdy. I love my Rasta one, but they said it's stinky. Plus yesterday at Bark N' Bubbles, I pulled Daddy so hard that I unlatched it myself! Thankfully this one shouldn't be that simple to break apart. Then Mommy got this other collar with these prongs that's supposed to get me "in control" on my walks. She tried it this morning and it got my attention quickly - guess I'll just have to behave from now on!

I think that's all for now. We have a big day of football planned today..and Daddy and Mommy are supposed to be taking me to get some new treatsies for my barkday since I'm almost out! Thanks for all the birthday wishes and hopefully I'll get to updating more often if Mommy (and Apple - what we're calling the baby at the moment) will cooperate!

Here are a few pics of my Sissy, Magic (my twin) from her Birthday morning..Happy Barkday to her and my siblings!!

Love and licks to everyone!!!



So I'm officially 1 year old today, CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?!?

I have a busy day of celebration planned, and Mommy promises to update with photos and stuff today or tomorrow first thing!



Finally an UPDATE...

okay, so i (my mommy) has been the slackest updater person in the whole entire world and she sends all of you her sincerest apawlogies once again!!  i just don't know what i can do to get her to update this thing more often..

well, i'm officially almost 1-year old..where in the world has the time gone?!?  i've been enjoying my summer so much and am still growing like a weed.  i'm probably between 75 and 80 pounds now and doing quite well (except for the occasional unruly behavior which mommy would say happens more often than what dad would claim but i'm a daddy's boy so what can i say!).

things are changing in my house and i guess it has a lot to do with me getting older and actually having to act like a dog instead of a puppy.  i'm going to try and beg mom to take some newer pics so we can share them..she's so slack like i said.  dad and i have really been wondering what the heck she does that makes her so tired all of the time..she's glued to the couch..

then, we got the biggest UPDATE and news in the whole world.  my mommy and daddy are having a BABY!!!  i'm honestly having mixed feelings about this b/c mommy says i really need to get my act together before this happens..so we'll see about that.  whatever it is..it's growing in my mommy's belly..daddy says she's just going into her 2nd trimester (again whatever that means)...

dad says i need to watch after her more and make sure she's okay so i'm doing my best at following her around and sitting by her...other than that, nothing has really been happening..just tried to enjoy the weather and the warm outside...how is everyone else doing???  i missed you!


May to Early June 2008

Okay - I've been the slacket Blogger ever in life. I'm baaaaack and ready for updates, etc. I just need a while to get caught up with all of your lives first. A lot has been going on as you'll see below..but I'm still a healthy, bumbling boy - now of about 72 pounds!!! More to come in the next few days...I've missed you all!!!
