Backyard Patrol

As y'all know, I's now a Junior Officer in da Blogville Police, as well as bein a member of Zombie Squad and da longstandin Head Chief of Homeland Security.  So in addishun to da nayborhood patrol (which I are back to doin full force), I went on a patrol of da backyard today.

I are checkin for zombies and other criminal elements, like dem nasty skwerrils and rats.

Are dat a skwerril I hears??  Too bad it are next door, otherwise I'd show it who are boss.

I luvs doin my patrols.

And havin nice weather to do em in in January makes me a happy pup.

All dis patrol work are exhausterating though, so it are nice to lie down and relax.

I's also a bilingual officer, no chupacapras are gonna be sneakin into my backyard and botherin me and my momma!

And while you pupses in da northeast wuz havin your blizzard, dis are what we is doin in Texas.  Yeah, me and momma don't miss Bawston at all right now!

I Celebrates Australia Day

Y'all might be wonderin what I are doin celebratin Australia Day, since I's a lil Scottish pup who lives in Texas.  Well, my pal Charlie sent me a cool package of all dis Australian stuff and it got here today, on Australia Day (well, at least it are still da 26th here even it are not in Australia no mores).  

Fanks so much Charlie!  I's so happy da customs dudes didn't steal any of it!

Charlie and his momma are so pawsome, dey even included stuff for da mommas and da kitties!

Dese are da kitties' toys - dey's already playin wif em!

And dis are for da mommas!

And now one to da good stuff, da stuff for me and Finley!

Roo sticks, doggy-mite treats, and cute lil Australian collars!

See, I match ya now Charlie!  I think I make a pretty good honorary Aussie!

Me and Finley both really luved da roo sticks - dey are super tasty!  We woofed em down right away - as ya can tell as I wuz in a big hurry to get to workin on mine!

So I hopes all my pals down under had a pawsome Australia Day!  I are also hopin all my pals who are in da path of dat blizzard are gonna be ok too, I lived in Bawston for three years, so I knows all bout dat stuff.  It are nuffin like dat here in Dallas, I spent da afternoon in da backyard wif my momma enjoyin our 70 degree weather while she wuz tannin.  BOL BOL!  Yeah, I likes to rub it in.

Sunday Selfie

Y'all might notice I's lookin a lil guilty in dis selfie.  Well, all I gotta say is it are not my fault!  I's blamin it all on da roids.  Roids make a girl very thirsty.  And pups who's drunk a whole bowl a water sometimes can't wait till dere mommas wake up.  And den dey also sometimes can't wait for dere mommas to put on clothes so dey can take dem out.  It are not my fault.  I don't know how Mark McGuire and Barry Bonds and all dose guys handled it.  Maybe dat are why dey ran for home so fast.

A New Jacket

Hey y'all.  Since I are one of Blogville's Fashun Directors (along wif BFF Finley) I thought I'd show y'all my newest outfit.

It are a warm fleecey jacket!  And not only are it fashunable (pink and green always go good together, just ask Lilly Pulitzer - I mean dey named a whole prize after her), it are practical too.

It helps keep me nice and snuggly warm.  And I know I are not livin where it are super cold, but since I has gotten older, I don't like da cold very much, so bein snuggly and warm has it's appeal.  And it keeps me from scratchin up my hot spot and makin it worse.  Finley wears these jackets lots on counts of her itchies, dey keep her from gettin at herself too.  She got a matchin one, so we wuz both rockin da preppy look.

And it hides where dey stole all my furs in order to show off my inner shar pei puppy, or whatever are goin on back there.  Wif my lil jacket on, ya can'ts even tell I are missin all dat hair.

Fanks Finley's momma for da new jacket!

Oh da Horrors!

Well, momma's been threatenin me wif a visit to da vet for a while.  Mostly cuz of dat dumb ol hotspot not gettin better and just gettin worse and worse.  I's had em before, but momma has always managed to get em under control at home.

My arthur-eye-tis wuz doin a lil better today, so I may be ready for another Zombie Patrol™ on Friday.  I are not patrollin tomorrow on counts of it sposed to be rainy and stuff, so if da mommas are dumb enuf to venture out in dat, dey are just gonna have to deal wif da zombies on dere own.

Anyways, I went to see da vet.  I had to wait for a while since he'd been outta town and was apparently pretty popular.  There were a couple other dogs there waitin, a cocker spaniel and a lil dachshund.  Momma just held me in her lap so I wouldn't bark everyone too much.  I are kinda a known loudmouth round there, last time I got my teeth cleaned dey called momma early to come take me home since dey wuz tired of my barkin.

I think dey got revenge on me for all my barkins at dem.  Either dat or da vetman wanted to give me a bald spot to match his.  Yeah, dey shaved my back where da hot spot had taken over.  Let's just say it are a good thing I likes wearin clothes, cuz dis ain't pretty.

Oh my gorgeous furs!  Gone, all gone!!  I sure hope dey grow back.

Dose are da wrinkles I got.  Da vetman and all da techs are still pretty confuserated bout dem - dey don't mean anything bad, dey's just never seen a westie wif wrinkles.  But ya can see how red and inflamed my poor lil back are.  And dat it are kinda oozy and nasty-lookin, and dis are after bein medicated.  I gots some more lotion for my back and da vetman wants me on steroids for a few days too (which means I gotta stop takin my Metacam for a few days since he don't want me on steroids and an NSAID at da same time).

Dis are not a good look.  And I are not a happy dog.  Da only good part of da day wuz dat da mommas went to Whataburger on da way home from da vet and I gotta eat fries in da car.  And some fries at home too.  I don't think frenchie fries make up for dis though, I think I deserved a whole Whataburger.  And some new clothes, I are definitely gonna need em to hide dis.

Finley's momma are already at work sewin right now.

Sunny Monday

Well pals, I wuz not feelin too good dis mornin.  I still gots my stinkin ol hot spot and my arthur-eye-tis wuz bein particularly nasty, I could barely walk.  Momma wuz ready to take me to da vet, but da vetman wuzn't there today, so I got outta dat one.  I wuz feelin too bad for Zombie Patrol™, but da weather here wuz so perfect - 70 and sunny.  So momma went outside to tan and I went outside to lay in da sun (and bark dat zombie dog cross da alley).  I couldn't do my Varmint Patrol™ in da backyard, so I relied on my Deputy Chief of Homeland Security, BFF Finley.  She reported back wif no varmints found, so I wuz able to just relax in da sun.

And I think da sunshine helped, becuz I am walkin better dis afternoon.  Still not one hundred percent, not even for me, but I are doin better.  And momma did another round of cleanin and medicatin da hotspot.  Hopin it goes away soon.

And I heard talk bout da peeps gettin wings tonight - wings mean dey also gets rolls which means I gets some bread!  Yummmm!
