AKC-Registered, VPI-Insured, Fully-Vaccinated & Ready for the World

well it's official that i'm official. mommy & daddy received my akc paperwork about a month ago, my insurance policy has been in effect for a few weeks & today dr. segl gave me my last of my first shots..can i get a woohoo?!? daddy says my life is about to change since i can (legally) do so many things from here on out:

  1. instead of having to ride in the stupid blue carts or sitting in the car at petsmart, petco & any other pet store, i can finally walk around with my humans like a big dog...
  2. my parents won't have to hold me every time i come in contact with a neighbor dog because they don't have to worry about me catching something from them
  3. i can pretty much walk & do my business anywhere i please instead of having to stick to nearby, bland areas where no strange dogs visit
  4. i can finally go to the park up the street with my humans where we can do laps, see other people, & maybe even have a picnic or two (when it gets warm of course)
  5. i can (let me get a bunch of woohoo's on this one) FINALLY go to the doggie park to visit all the pups in the neighborhood
  6. instead of just chatting & watching event after event go by, i am now ready to actually attend some of the dc metro boxer meet-ups (so excited about meeting you guys!!!)
  7. maybe now i can find a reliable place to go to doggie daycare near mommy or daddy's job, that way i can take care of my own things instead of straightening things out at daddy's job everyday
  8. & last but certainly not least (according to my parents), i can start attending puppy behavior training classes so my parents won't have to worry about me being out of control (all the time)

soooo, where to start my tales...i guess i should start with santa paws & all the wonderful toys he brought me...so i know i told you how my stocking was stuffed full - the contents were variety show...a stretchy reindeer, a ball/rope pull toy, an akc mallard with a string & ball at the end of it that squeaked (i think these akc toys are my fav toys by far), a yellow squishy football & a green, blue & white chew rope - the next size up from the one i first had b/c i'm bigger now.


as if that wasn't enough, my auntie katie sent me a yellow tennis ball & my pawpaw & grammie sent me a rawhide bone all to myself. (i'm thinking they had to hide it from layla when they were sending b/c i just know she was jealous about it, not to mention unhappy.) the bone is still around here somewhere, but my mommy & daddy took it from me b/c i was so concentrated on it, i had ignored the rest of my toys which made them feel a little unloved (which i did NOT want to happen). plus, i hadn't touched any of my breakfast, which my mommy did not like one bit.


here i am with my reindeer after a few hours of playing..we were both pooped & in desperate need of an early evening snooze...let's all say a few words for this homie since he ended up lasting only about 24 hours before retiring to that big place in the sky....stretchy reindeer toy heaven...the other picture is of me & my new chew rope, it was grrrrrrrreat (i got that from tony the tiger..hehe)


as i said before, i'm fully vaccinated thanks to the great people at alpha animal hospital. today was my official last visit of the year and the completion of my puppy shots. i didn't even have to get up on the table today since i'm big enough for dr. segl to examine on the ground. ya know what else??? i didn't even yelp this time around..i was so concentrated on her treats...i think she must put some harry potter magic on those treats b/c they just keep me mezmerized. they also let me have a smaller version of my squishy football so i spent a good 20 minutes total before, during & just after my examination playing soccer with myself in the room...it was great. then when we were leaving, i had the pleasure of meeting 2 very nice, gorgeous birds. mommy can't remember what kind they were, but i just thought their song was so nice, i just sat there..looking & listening..but out of my visit, i finally got my rabies tag..official business..not to mention that at 15 weeks, i'm now 29 lbs!!! dr. segl says i'm well on my way to being a full-grown 70 - 80 lbs...
after my visit with dr. segl, mommy & daddy took me for my first "walking" tour of petsmart, which i absolutely loved. it was a blast to see how many kewl things they have in that place. i think mommy said we may be taking my puppy classes there but they haven't decided since it's my first days as an official pup. we ended up picking up a few things b/c i was out of food to begin with, then with walking around you know you can't help but pick up other stuff since you're already there.
at the beginning of our tour, we had to stop at the "clean-up" eisle...pffff.. i mean i didn't want to say this but let's face it, we all have accidents from time to time & the other nite i'd been playing pretty hard with my daddy & the heron...so when i finally calmed down enough to sit still, i had a slight problem. okay, okay, mommy says i need to be honest - so it wasn't a slight problem, i took a big pee on the carpet. i didn't think mommy & daddy saw it (which they didn't at first) so i tried to slip over to my doggie bed. i must've not done it calmly enough b/c they immediately looked at me & i guess my pitiful, droopy eared stare made them think to look down. that's when they saw it - the puddle.. so yeah, as i was saying..we all have accidents now & again..so here i am trying to ignore the cleaners altogether since they made me sit there while they chose which product they wanted most..hmm, whatever!

on our way out of the store, we passed a few lost & found pups since the local shelter/organization was having an adoption event. there were the cutest little mixed baby dogs so mommy let me visit with them for a moment. after that we passed the most beautiful site in the whole, wide world..(next to treats & food). the toysssssss. & can i just say "wow"...from balls to ropes, from animals to squeaky crazy shapes..this place had it all. daddy let me take a sniff around but we ended up not getting anything. i was a little upset at first, mainly b/c i didn't want to leave at all but i remembered how many great gifts santa & the fam sent me..so i was kewl with the thought that i'm sure we'd be back & i'm positive that i could talk my daddy into getting me one special thing..i basically can talk him into anything cuz i'm his boy...


whew, i'm glad you were able to stick with me long enough to update all of that. mommy says she may have to help me update more often. dr. segl said when her new website is up & running that she may link to my site..my blog is getting fans here, there & everywhere & it's really exciting. i'm happy to know there are others out there as interested in my life as i am fascinated by all the happenings of it...

with that said, i'll update everyone bout my new year's eve plans in a few days...for now, i wish you love, peace & happiness for your 2008, not to mention many days filled with your favorite things!!! i'm excited to see what it has in store for a pre-teen like me..

and Such...

okay so i know everyone says this is a busy season, but i had no idea what to expect. the parents have had me here & there & everywhere. i get up early, go to work all day long with my daddy, drive out to pick up mommy, then go home for dinner....so, when i get home in the evenings - sometimes i just like to sit around.
i had gotten a little tired of my big crate so i asked dad to move it to the guestroom while i situated my doggie bed in its rightful spot. but now that my bed is out in the open, i like to sit in it & ponder life, what the week(end) has in store, the best way in which one could successfully attack the heron, or exactly where that piece of cold stuff the parents call "ice" went when i was kicking it around in the kitchen. i'm also trying to learn how to skate board like Meaty on MTV's Rob & Big show..daddy told mommy all about my first try...long story, but basically we saw this lil' dude with a skateboard & i tried & tried until i got up on it, skating a lil' ways before ending that adventure. i can't wait to try again.

i haven't had much time to myself lately though - any time i even sit for like 5 seconds, mommy has to come over to me with that pink metal thing that makes weird noises & flashes this light something awful! i get so sick of seeing that thing or hearing that irritating beep. this is me, disgusted with that metal thing...

i've gotten to where i just start making faces at her instead of sitting & looking like the studly little pup i am. anyways, here are a few of my crazy faces - i'm learning that they work really well, so if any of you would like to take them, i won't freak out on you or anything. i've found that the "scruntched eye" and the "tongue" look are the most effective. The key is to do something really cute...
so that on the second or so pic...BAM...weird face!!!

size update time...mommy tricked me into getting on the scale last night..just for kicks. she says i'm somewhere between 27 & 30 lbs..now that could be different from the scale at Dr. Segl's but the parents both think i've gained some weight, if anything b/c my legs are getting longer & i'm overall just looking like a big, goofy puppy dog. now that my legs are so long, i'm getting pretty good about getting on the couch by myself.
i'm not supposed to get up there without an invitation, but sometimes i use my charm, conning them into letting me up...mommy caught me standing up instead of laying down..i tried to explain that i was just worried about dad leaving, but mommy said i knew better & that dad was just going to get dinner..so i calmed down, played with the heron & kept mommy safe until he got back. the pic below is of when mommy caught me with that metal thing....i told you i hated it...
tonight, mommy came home from a hard day at work & i thought i'd be nice so i decided to sit down, help her organize her thoughts & sign a few cards on their behalf...i mean the cards were from me too so it was the least i could do. first of all, i had mommy lay everything out in a particular fashion so it was really easy for me to handle, almost like one of those conveyor belt production lines.

then, i lay down to sort my thoughts to come up with the best wording possible. of course, i also signed a few & closed them up for mommy to put in the envelopes.
anyway, i think that's all for now. i'm very tired this evening with all the projects i have going on...i'll most likely update after the weekend or just before/after christmas day. i know i'm going to have some new things to share after santa paws comes to see me..hope you liked my lil card...puppy slobberz...

Seasons Greetings....

mommy got this idea from my new pup pal Ralph..when she told me about it, i immediately thought i better create one since i came into all the card exchanges late in the game....

Well, well, well...

well, well, well..first & foremost, my mommy said that she would like to apol...apolo....she's sorry for not helping me to update my blog lately. this entry is gonna be a long one b/c i have so much to tell y'all..i was so excited to get back to the computer that i couldn't help myself...




video



mommy helped me to create a slideshow with some of the latest pics of me having fun & taking care of things around the house. i have lots of responsibilities here, like supervising dinner preparations, making sure Daddy & Mommy are doing what they're supposed to be doing..you know, important things. i'm so excited b/c i have 2 new toys!! mr. hedgehog basically guards my crate at all times, so we don't really rough each other up much anymore..instead, my daddy bought me this great AKC heron..it has ropes for legs & squeaks, mommy was surprised b/c i unraveled the braid of one of the legs within about 10 minutes of them giving it to me ..then there's my new bone - it's a lil' squishy & it was my gift for being so good at my vet visit...



speaking of...so i went to visit Dr. Segl at Alpha Animal Hospital on December 8th. i just love going there b/c everyone is so nice! i had to get my 2nd shots & only yelped once & that was b/c the medicine burned me a lil', but then Dr. Segl gave me these yummy treats & all i could think about was getting/finding more. one big thing was that they weighed me & everyone was so shocked b/c i ended up weighing 22 lbs!!!!



so then, we came home..the next morning when i woke up - there was this white stuff all over the place & it was freezing! mommy said it was called snow when she took me out for my morning pee...then both my parents took me for a walk in the evening & we walked around playing in it. ahhhh my first snow...it was so much fun, they say it's supposed to do it again this weekend - but we haven't seen anything..not even rain, although it feels just as cold out.



here's the slideshow of pics i told u about earlier...you can see my heron & bone....







sooooooooo...i know i mentioned the utter torture i endured earlier this month...those dreaded antlers that my mommy put on me. talk about irritating & just a pitiful situation...here's the good photo mom has shared with everyone...





i wish someone would ask her why she doesn't share this one...yeah, that's right...exactly what an angry, P O'ed Kaiser Blaze looks like...i was so fed up with these stupid things, if i could find somewhere in this house where my mommy can't get to..i'm taking them where she'll never ever find them...AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH. ugh, makes me sick just thinking about those things...







the next pic is one my mommy wanted to put on here, she says i look like some dog from the grinch stole christmas..i've never watched that movie before but it makes mommy laugh every time she mentions it...she told me to ask what you all think, do i look like that dog in these photos...





the final photo...in my opinion, the only good photo in this bunch...my wonderful stocking, there's something poking out of the top of it now but i can't quite reach it yet but my stocking has bright colors and says woof on it...perfectamundo!


and last, but not least...i'll be responding to everyone's comments & sending some thanks either tomorrow or throughout this coming week, i've got to go find my heron and shake it around some...then i need to run as fast as i can around the house for a few laps before hitting the crate to shut it down...

We are Family...

so, mommy has been in contact with a nice lady named laurie who actually welcomed one of my sister's into her home. i've been so excited about this b/c i get to see pics of her growing up as i'm growing up. kinda makes me feel like i'm not alone in this big, HUGE, world..
i know what you're thinking, and nooooooooo it's not me. her name is magic, and i think she's probably my "twin" from our litter. those genes must be GREAT - she's going to be a heartbreaker one of these days. mommy is trying to find out where she lives so that when we both have all our shots, we can set play dates or something. i really hope that works out.

anyway, i thought i'd share the pics of her since it has me feeling all cozy for the holidays...i have more pictures to share which mommy says will have to happen this weekend. just to give everyone a head's up though - mommy made me wear these STUPID, stupid, stupid antlers like i was a reindeer or something...ugh, it was the most horrific and embarrasing thing EVER!
tell you all about it next time around...puppy slobberz...

Supplement to "Cough, Cough.." & Thanksgiving

okay so mommy finally downloaded all my pics & vids from her camera (only took her forever!) the trip to north cak was so long, but i slept for most of it. mommy & daddy stopped at the rest area & a few other places for me to go potty & so i could stretch my legs. here i am at the rest area with my dad - examining the ground for quality & safety


after first arrving at grammie & paw paw's house..i couldn't quite get the hang of attacking layla so she pretty much gave me a beating. i wasn't expecting her to be so big considering mommy told me she was a pup, too...i got a couple good nips in there though...

this is me - resting my bones after my first battle thursday evening, as you can see - i had mommy's cell phone right beside me in case my daddy called me needing anything important


this video is of the final battle between Kaiser Blaze & Layla, as you can tell - my battling/boxing skils are developing little by little.. ;) i kept trying to get a hold of her tail b/c i figured i could just whirl her around with it, but she never was still long enough.

video

this is me saturday nite, after many well-fought battles..i've developed a brand new obsession with socks so i'm snuggling with mom's red, comfy, warm, holiday socks in this one - no one knows what i do with daddy's b/c they can't catch me after i've grabbed up a pair..

and this final pic is of me, back in regular virginia - sulking b/c i'm without layla...man i can't wait to go back to north cak again....it was such a blast, but i was definitely ready to get back home & to my doggie bed

11.28.2007

Cough, cough & I've Been TAGGED!!!

it’s been a tough month for lil’ ol’ me...adjusting to the new life & new home has been great & I’m having lots of fun. we just returned from north cakalak where my mommy and daddy grew up; i got to meet all my extended human peoples like my grammie, paw paw and nana! mommy says they spoiled me so much b/c my grammie gave me liver & ham stock, YUMMY!!! i spent most of the time playing with my cousin layla – she’s what my mommy called a lab mix – i call her my new best bud. mommy has video of me & her wrestling at grammie’s house but she said we didn't have time to post that now..have to post it laterz on.

back to the first comment though – about it being a tough month...i’ve been sick. daddy took me to the vet – this wonderful lady in fairfax at
alpha animal hospital – and she said i had kennel cough. all I know is i kept hacking & couldn’t stop – mommy was so scared b/c my breathing was very quick & i felt like i had a fever. i didn’t want to eat or play or anything, just lay around in my doggie bed & snore the day away. (mommy says I’m the worst snorer ever!) anyway, i got some anti…antibio…some medicine & took it for a week. i’m still coughing some but overall feeling much better, i get to see the alpha animal peoples again next saturday so hopefully she will give me a clean bill of health…

so, i was tagged by my pup pals
crikit, sparky & ginger…like them – it’s my first time & i feel so loved (so puppy kisses to the 3 of you!!!). they actually tagged me on the 25th but since we were out of town – this is the first i’ve had to sit down, plus getting mommy to sit down at the computer is hard considering daddy’s ALWAYS on it messing with his fantasy football team…(whatever!?!)

The Rules:
- link to your Tagger and post these rules….
1. list eight (8) random facts about yourself
2. tag eight people at the end of your post & list their names (linking to them)
3. let them know they’ve been tagged by leaving them a comment on their blogs

Random Facts About Kaiser Blaze
1. i do not like the “claw” even though it tries to play with me constantly..it honestly drives me insane to where i bark & bark trying to get it away or bite it
2. i have 2 (b/c i’m so spoiled) crates/dens/kennels that are really comfy, one is big enough for my entire bed
3. mommy nicknamed me "stinky" b/c I fart, burp and smell like a “boy”
4. i get the hiccups ALL the time
5. i LOVE car rides – well actually I like them & tend to sleep so I don’t know if that means i LOVE them or not.
6. i have an obsession with the bathtub ever since mommy gave me my first bath
7. mommy & daddy don’t know that I can climb on the foot stool to get to the garbage can (hahahahahahahaha)
8. i really like peanut butter although I can never figure out how to get it off my tongue

My eight tags go to………………………………

Cairo, Bogart you Handsome Devil you!!, the Jackman Ave Gang, Peanut, Lorenza, Moab, Teddy & Ivy

i'll post more laterz about my turkey day..hope everyone had a great one!

puppy slobber to all...................

home sweet home

home sweet home...ahhh..oh how sweet it is...i really miss my family at Boxers of Cheyenne but i do have to say that this new home in regular virginia ain't too shabby. there are so many new things to figure out and so many roooms to explore...not to mention the toys!!! i have an entire tub full ,if you can believe it!

it's been a great week and a half. i spent just about every day with my daddy at his work everyone at his work was so nice to me and would play with me all throughout the day. i get to go there again tomorrow so i'm really excited. hopefully one day, i'll be able to go to mommy's job and meet all the people there.

speaking of which, my mommy's friend and coworker, miss christina, came over last sunday with mr. chris and my pal curty!!! we had a BLAST just running around in the house. i can't wait to see him again so we can hang out and run some laps. there's a pic of us in the slideshow below along with a few others from my first days home.

i also get to go with my parents to north carolina for thanksgiving. i can't wait b/c then i get to meet all my grandparents - so excited! anyway, that's all for now - i'll write more laterz...

butterflies in my tummy

okay...so i'm nervous. not really nervous about my new people..but nervous about the new home, the new friends, the new life...and leaving..and the car ride that will officially enable my "leave"...my tummy has been in knots all day long which wasn't fun b/c i had to go to the vet too..whew..i doubt i'll be able to sleep much tonight.
i'm going to wait to post pics of all my new stuff so that i can add those pics to pics of my new home and such..so you have to wait a lil' longer for those. HOWEVER...my friends FINALLY sent me pics so that i could put them up on here so i can share those to bide the time and feed your appetites...plus i had to post something on my blog. i felt it was the only way to get my mind off the move and yet what did i start my post with - moving nervousness!!! i'm such a freakin' weirdo!
okay, the first two gentlemen are Blue Z. (top pic) and Bug E. (bottom pic) - my mommy works with their aumpy karen. they have been so nice to me (despite the tension between them b/c they are brothers). i don't know if i'll ever be able to meet them in person, but i surely hope so. they're the coolest cats i've met - EXCEPT for Bob the Bobcat - noone will ever replace him..but they're great pals!


this is my homie, Curtis Roscoe. his mommy and my mommy are good friends and they work together. my mommy says she's known Curtis (she calls him Curty) since he was a pup like me. i'm really excited b/c he and his mommy may come to visit me at my home in regular virginia on sunday. i really hope they come b/c i cannot WAIT to see him in person. he was a lobster for howl-o-ween...
okay that's all for now. i've signed up for dogster so i'm making a lot of friends on there....okay, i'm going to try and have some din din before i play a little with my siblings..then hopefully i can get some shut eye....

u know, regardless of all the nervousness - i'm super excited about seeing my humans tomorrow!!!

11.05.2007

3 Days & Change

this morning i realized that there are only 3 days & some change until i see my human parents again. this is a very happy occasion b/c i get to go with them to my new home in regular virginia. i was a little down about it being that i have to leave everyone at boxers of cheyenne, but i overheard my mommy & ms. shirley talking last time & ms. shirley said i can come back to visit whenever i want. plus mommy said ms. shirley can keep up with me on my blog. <i knew this would be a good thing mommmmmm.>
i am really excited about going to 5019 - i hear it's the place to be. mommy & daddy went to petsmart yesterday & apparently got a nifty new doggie bed for me, along with a bunch of toys. mommy says i have so many toys already, she doesn't know when i'll have time to play with them all - i really don't think she has to worry. mom said dad took forever trying to figure out which "tug" toy was the best for me (& for him to use), but he said she couldn't figure out which bed was best so they were even.
<just between me and you, i think you can never have too many toys & i'm probably going to tear up whatever bed they bought me anyways so what does it really matter...> i'll post pics of everything laterz.
so, here's my latest pic. i was a lil' nervous about even putting it up - i just don't get it..my legs are growing, but my body feels like it's staying the same (even though it was big before & i'm probably just freakin' for no reason). ms. shirley is taking me wednesday for my vet check before i can go to regular virginia. at first i thought it had something to do with my legs growing issue, but my brothers & sisters also have to go, so i guess it's all gravy! <i mean, let's face it, my leg problem is nothing compared to some of the other issues that the siblings have - namely sleeping on top of my head, eating way too much at dinner, hogging the toys, running into me with their clumsy selves - oh yeah, & stinking up the place.>
anywho, i have some other things to say but i need to let the brats (brothers & sisters) use the computer, too. i'm so excited to be meeting people on blogger & other places..i'll have to tell you all about my new friends in the area and the meetup group my parents joined..woohoo!

10.31.2007

can't wait to come home..

only one more week (+a little over a day) until i come home with my mommy and daddy. ms. shirley told mommy how i've fallen in love with puppy food. they said i was getting too old to still be after my mom's milk - oh well, it was nice while it lasted. i'm loving playing with my other siblings..AND we've all been really excited b/c some of the other boxer family members at Boxers of Cheyenne - Cody and Allie had 8 baby puppies - like really baby puppies. they're so cute, but it's weird not being the babies anymore..

since i haven't had any 5019 adventures, i'd thought i'd leave you with a video and some older pics from when my mommy and daddy came to visit me in capon bridge...

video

that's me stumbling around before i even knew what legs were..you can see my comfy brown blanket that my daddy and mommy brought for my 1-month birthday on Oct. 13. they also brought me a toy that i like to call Mr. Hedgehog..he squeaks and everything!..then you can see my daddy giving me a gentle rub - i like laying on my blankie and getting a nice rub until i fall asleep...

that's me checking out Mr. Hedgehog for the first time...


my mommy and me..she loves giving me hugs and smooches!!


you know, my mommy and daddy say i'm the cutest puppy ever, and i have to say that i totally believe them :)

My Profile Pic

i'm still trying to get acclimated to this whole "Blogger" thing, but for now here's my first photo. i'm only 6 weeks old in this pic and already looking like a big boy. it was finally nice enough for my siblings and me to go outside and play... i can't believe it's already been 6 weeks, but next thursday i finally get to go home with my mommy and daddy. i hope alexandria is as nice as capon bridge has been. i'm going to miss my siblings and family at boxers of cheyenne, but i know i'll have a blast with my new people...hmmm, i wonder what trouble awaits me at 5019?!?
