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....

A Few Holiday Fun Things

Your Elf Name Is...

Furry Sweet Cheeks


You Are Donner

The most loveable and sweet reindeer, you're also a total dork!

Why You're Naughty: You keep (accidentally) tripping the other reindeer while flying.

Why You're Nice: You're always smiling, even if you've fallen flat on your horns.

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...
