OMG! MOM!!!

Mom and dad took us to the park again today with one of their friends. We had soooooo much fun until mom fell. So what happened to mom???? well, there were some dogs running and apparently a dog ran into mom and hit her leg really hard, mom landed on the ground...she said she was really hurting. when she tried to stand up, she couldn't stand on one leg. dad and another person carried mom to the car and then dad got us. They took us home but mom didn't get out of the car. then mom and dad left...OMG!! they didn't get home for HOURS!!!! When they did...mom had these funny sticks with her...they were pretty scarry. dad said something about mom having broken her leg...DAD WHAT DOES THAT MEAN TO US....WE STILL GET TO GO ON WALKS AND TO THE PARK AGAIN...RIGHT??????

we hope so, mom is really scary with those stick things...mom even had dinner with her legs sticking up....hmmmmmmm something is really not right here...

our great adventure!

OMG have we ever been busy!!! Mom and dad had lots of people over for something they call thanksgiving! Soooo many people came over. Grandma brought us some bones to play with. Everything was going great, until Mom's nephew ratted on Ripley (he had the nerve to point out Rippy was peeing! Well...Rippy just didn't want to miss out on anything!!). We had GREAT food for the next few days cause mom had cooked for us as well!!!

Today mom and dad took us to a doggie park....OMG we ran soooooo hard! there were doggies there chasing some balls, LOLOLOLOLOLOL they thought they were soooo fast...well we showed them!!! we gave them a head start but we got to the ball faster! of course it was their balls so we let them take it back to their dads! Mom threw our balls but we didn't take them back to her so she had to go get them! Mom and dad said they will take us back there. we had lllllooootttts of fun!! we were so tired when we got home, we went to sleep.

mom's candy!

oh...today was a great day!!! I tried on mom's camisole and took her socks..until dad found them. Then we got our great new jackets!! OMG we look soooo cool in them..mom will take a picture of us in them. She got them special from England.
then mom got mad at me....I don't get it...she caught me with her umbrella, and her candy. I already had eaten the twixt bar...dad was worried about me but mom said i would live unless she had at me first...dad said he would protect me from mom. I was getting ready to eat her payday bar when she grabbed it from me! OMG there i was...out the umbrella and candy..well, maybe we can sing for mom and dad again like we did a couple of days ago! it was a wonderful serenade and it was early enough mom and dad could enjoy it!

would rather have had treats!

Dad was working in the office and he took something out of one of his desk drawers. i remembered that the drawer was where he kept our treats! when he turned to work on the computer, i grabbed the treats...darn it!! the plastic bag they were in made noise...dad heard it and turned as i was leaving the office and said...."HEY...DROP IT!!" GRRRRRRRRR. I showed dad...i went dumpster diving in the kitchen and found an old sponge and ripped it all up...dad just shook his head when he saw that!!

where is my sofa??????

OMG!!! what a weekend....mom and dad had some guys over..mom and dad said we had to stay in the office so they couldn't pet us....how bad was that!!! when they left, mom and dad still told us we had to stay in the office. Finally, later on, they let us in the living room....OMG!!! THE SOFA ISN'T WHERE IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE. i told mom and dad but they just said it was going to stay this way....this isn't right. rippy just laid down and went to sleep.

On sunday, mom took us on a long walk. I had words with a dalmatian after it had words with me. i put him in his place!! it took a while to get mom to take us out. she said that the time changed...how silly, time doesn't change..but mom is now getting home when it is dark out!

Fan Club

OMG! When dad took us for a walk this morning, like...this lady in a car (a Mercedes...chaaaa), stopped next to us and said, "Hi gorgeous". (I hope dad didn't think she was talking to him, but I did hear him whisper, HEY NOW! WELL...HOW DEE DO!) BOLBOLBOLBOL Ohhhh, puh...leeze!

Then she said she had to get out and say hello. Ahhh, our fans! She came around to us and petted us and kissed us and said all kinds of wonderful things about how gorgeous we were (and by "we", I mean me). We never get tired of our adoring fans and their petting.

Hope we meet more fans tomorrow!

Hey...I heard that crack about "and by 'we', I mean me". That alle is so full of herself and, judging from what she did during our walk this morning, TWICE, she's full of something else too! BOLBOLBOLBOL

finally walks!!

it was raining a few days this week so dad didn't take us for a walk...not to worry...we managed to cause enough work for dad in the house!!! we raced and chased and got into stuff!! Dad was really happy when it stopped raining and we went for walks!! So what did we do...well...we got into mom's sewing stuff...got into trash...found some muffins...got into dads office drawer where he keeps treats for us...

then a couple of nights ago...there were lots of cars around our house...mom and dad said they were police cars. mom and dad took us out to see what was going on...the police thought we were beautiful...well...duh!!!

then a night ago, mom was running to get something from the office at the same time ripley was running to the kitchen. rip saw mom and turned, mom dove over rip to keep from hurting her...OMG you should have seen mom!!!! She looked like something from a circus!! Rip didn't get hit, dad ran to see how mom was, she was ok!

What a busy week!!!!

pretty uneventful

mom took us on long walk today and we saw a rottweiler. alle wanted to meet it but mom said she didn't know it and she wasn't sure if it was a nice dog. It didn't want to come near us so we just walked by and ignored him. When we were in the park, we saw a lady walking two small dogs, a Lhasa apso and a shar pei...alle wanted to play with them so she barked at them....they ran behind the lady....we were laughing...mom told alle not to scare them...we had seen them before. then on our way home, we saw the goat and llama...the goat actually said hi (at least that is what we think it said..we are not up on our "goat").

this afternoon some guy came over...it is a new neighbor...he was talking to dad. he seemed very nice, alle saw something and she raced after it...yea..the girl does have it in her to run...anyway..the guy said he should have us to chase rabbits from his yard...he said he has a lot...mmmmmmmmmm rabbits!!!

i had my shots yesterday. dad took both of us and everyone at the doctors office pet us and told us how wonderful we are...yes...we know! we are fabulous!!

this guy wasn't too smart!

LOLOLOLOLOLOL we were out for a walk with mom this morning and some guy was "running" with two dalmatians. Alle wanted to go with him but the guy said we probably wouldn't be able to keep up...LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL...I could have run 500 yards in 30 seconds (well anyway i could...alle...well...she can still run pretty fast when she wants to!). mom told us to settle down, the guy clearly did NOT know to whom he was talking!! Then we saw some golden retrievers in the park just running and playing...mom said we couldn't do that cause the park was not fenced so we could be safe. Oh well...it was a great walk!

Gotta be more quiet

Well, THIS time...I grabbed TWO big towels AND a washcloth and brought them into our bedroom so fast, Dad didn't have time to make it out of his chair before he noticed I was already laying down on my bed looking innocent! ("I don't know how that stuff got there" eye contact) I have to admit, it was kinda noisy this time, but I did manage to get the wet towel (dad took a shower this a.m.) OFF OF THE TOWEL RACK (first time ever!)...and an extra towel and washcloth out of the hamper. Stumbling on the trash can in the bathroom made some noise when I yanked the towel off the rack.

A girl has to have new challenges! BOBOBOLBOL

Even dad was impressed this time. He stood up & applauded.

Yep...I'm the greatest!

Fortunately, i found it and have sunk my teeth into the box! Darn that dad...he found it and took it away from me...I fixed him though...i kept some pieces under me so he wouldn't find them...mmmmmmmmm sure is good! Uh oh...here is dad...he is telling me to drop it...hmmmm drop or swallow...drop or swallow.......

new socks!!

This was soooo great...well until dad found out. Mom bought some new socks for me and i found them in the bathroom (well, they probably were for her, but what do i know...i am just a dog, i am beautiful and it is really all about me!). So since they were sooooo convenient, i took them. i tried to put them on, but i got tired and decided to take a nap. Well, dad saw one of the socks on the bathroom floor (d*^%must have fallen when i took them) and called mom. he then came looking for me and there i was laying peacefully on the couch. He found the other three socks by my head. He told me that mom said they were not for me and took them away...hmmmm i wonder if that is really what mom said or if dad was just making that up, oh...dad was with mom when she bought them for herself...D#@$% Mom!!!

the wiggle waggle

Mom and dad took us to a wiggle waggle walk today. mom said it was a benefit for the Pasadena Humane Society...OMG it was sooooo hot...everybody admired us and pet us. Ripley was a bit scared of all the big dogs, mom kept telling her she was ok, mom wouldn't let anyone hurt her. Mom and dad tried to keep us in the shade but we did have to go out in the sun a fair amount. Anyway...they had us walking it seemed like foooorrrreeevvveeerrrr! There were spots of water...we were getting ready to leave when riple walked into one of the water things and just laid down! CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT???!!! THE WATER WASN'T EVEN CLEAN!!!! I didn't go in the water...what and mess up my hair???!! Rippy did look comfy though...take a look at her in the water.

So we left the house this morning and Chaz was there....Chaz lives down the street from us and he just roams the streets it seems...anyway, there he was. He followed us, we went by his house and we figured he would stay home, but nooooooo...he continued following us! he followed us into the park/reservoir area where we met two other dogs...a beagle and what looked to be a dogue de bordeaux, they were very nice. mom was talking to their parents while chaz explored the flat area of the park. When we continued on our walk, chaz came with us, he wanted to play and so did alle but mom said alle couldn't be off her leash (mom really is smart!). We were on our way home and chaz was in front of us when suddenly he went into a yard....we heard lots of noise and then chaz runs out....OMG..he was ALL WET! He had been sloshing around in a water feature/pond in someones front yard!! LOLOLOLOLOL, now he was wet and dirty!!!! we passed his house on the way home but he stayed with us and when we got home, he went to lie down in the horses area..WOW....mom told dad she wouldn't want to be Chaz's parents when he gets home!!!!

Darn it!!!! dad let us out today...i turned around cause i dropped something and dad saw it...OMG dad said "alle....how did this washcloth get here???" I just looked at dad and said...what are you talking about? but dad said...i didn't drop it here...ripley doesn't go in the bathroom...that just leaves you. I tried to say hey what about mom???!! Dad said and mom is at work...THAT LEAVES YOU!! Grrrrrrr!!!!

Dad also caught me with the Trader Joe's bag...hey can i help it...Mom went to Trader Joe's and i was trying to see if she got us anything....she didn't give us anything...so i could only assume that she forgot to take it out of the bag (dad took a pic of me with it).

Then mom caught me with her work stuff...she told me that if i wanted to help with her work...i had to tell her...she didn't want to get to work and find out i had taken it!

We actually think mom and dad are up to something...rip has been checking out the rolly bags mom brought upstairs. mom has been putting stuff in them...something is up...we know!

So, yesterday, mom called dad...apparently, mom didn't know that alle was trying to help mom with her work. This is what happened. The night before last, i found mom's work in her work bag...knowing how busy mom is, i took the work out to help her. Anyway, dad gets this call yesterday morning from mom....and goes looking....then dad tells mom...."found it." Dad told alle, "Hey girl, if you are going to help mom work, you have to put the work back in her bag." fortunately, mom had plenty of other work to do that wasn't still at home with us!!!

what cookies? cake? what cake?

So dad found some plastic under our blanket this morning and he called mom. Mom said she didn't know anything. we just stared at dad!!

Uh oh....dad looking for something...then we hear him call mom....OH NO....he is asking mom where his cookies are! Hmmmmm...mom seems to be telling him she doesn't know... OH NO now it seems she told him to look on his desk....dad is looking on his desk, now mom told him to look for the plastic he found earlier...now dad is really moving our blanket...DARN!!! he found the rest of the bag. NOW i suppose he is going to blame us for eating his cookies!!! Yep....he is shaking his head...AGAIN!!!

Later, dad found the plastic taken off of the cake mom made....AND HE FOUND SOME OF THE CAKE MISSING!!!! Dad told mom that Alle ate it!! I am off the hook since i don't go in the kitchen!!

Lifestyle Needs

OMG! Mom caught me with her Harrod's umbrella yesterday and took it away! Dad said that I was only accessorizing and would need it to match up with the shoes I was going to buy with mom's credit card (which she also took back). Well...chaaaa! I have a certain lifestyle to maintain. What...is she thinking?!

And then, this morning, OMG, like, dad caught me testing out the paint brushes in the front yard and took them away too! WTF?! I have lots of other doggies coming by to check me out and I can't be seen in a yard with a half finished stained patio cover. chaaaaa. If mom isn't going to finish this thing, I'll just have to do it myself. Dad just shook his head (he does that a lot) and said I can't stain the patio cover, or the deck for that matter.

Dad let us out into the yard to poop & pee and forgot that the contractors left the big gate open! By the time he realized his mistake, I was in the street thinking, "Hey...who needs dad & a leash"?!
Rip scooted out, stopped briefly to look at dad (whose face was really red) screaming for us to come back, and then she followed me down the street. We were gone in a flash!

Dad got the "squawker" and was blowing his head off but we were off running.
Dad went back into the house to get the leashes and came after us down the hill, all the time blowing that annoying squawker. He was wearing flip flops and the sight of poor old dad running like a seal on dry land in those flip flops, trumpeting like a walrus in heat, was too much for that sissie Ripley. She ran back to dad & he put the leash on her and then they came after me.

Dad got half way down the hill (more like a mountain) and asked some girl getting into her car if she saw a blond greyhound. "You mean like this" said the nice man who was petting me on his doorstep. HE TURNED ME IN, THE RAT FINK! I stop to get petted & scratched, and the guy and his wife hold me until dad could get that leash back on me.

Oh well, it was fun while it lasted. I'm kinda tired from all this excitement. Time for me & Rip to nap. I'll have dad post our pic when we wake up.

He told mom we were playing with some kinda "sunscreen" ...were we supposed to have it??? Mom said it was ok...she wasn't going to use it..unless dad was..he said no...so mom told him it was ok..just make sure there was nothing that was going to hurt us...Awwwww....mom is soooooooo cool!

anyway, there we were playing when OMG....it blew up on us!!!! can you believe it????? alle just looked at it...dad was LOLOLOL... he told mom when she got home that it "popped open" LIKE WHATEVER!! It was scary...mom said dad should have taken a pic of us...but dad said he didn't have camera handy...GOOOD...IT WASN'T FUNNY DAD!!!

Dad took it away after that.

OMG!!! On Sunday we were bugging mom to take us for a walk...she told us to wait she had a surprise for us! WE WERE SOOOOOOO EXCITED!!!

it was sooooo great!! Mom put us in the car, we picked up our uncle and went over to grandmas house!!! OH NO!!!! NO GRANDMA OR GRANDPA!! WHO IS GOING TO PAY ATTENTION TO US???????!!

well, mom let us run out in the yard. Ripley laid under the tree. I looked all around. we got some snacks...I went upstairs to check it out...Uncle was in room resting...went back downstairs...went back out side...went into garden with mom...but mom shooed me out of the garden..she said i was way too big to be in garden. We ran around the yard some more.

Mom made dinner for uncle...uncle gave us some ham.....yummmmmmmm.

we didn't really get all our zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz's in.

We were soooooooooo tired when we got home. we slept almost all Monday (dad did catch me on the bed with his towel draped over me!). We have almost caught up on our sleep....hopefully dad will take us on a nice walk tomorrow!!

BOLBOLBOL!!!! they both made no noise....just looked at us with their stupid mouths moving. and whats up with their fur...sure, we question when some dogs have lots of fur...but they were ridiculous!

an adventure

WOW....Is dad great!!!! He gave us more salmon for dinner tonight....can we describe how good it was???!!! Well maybe i (ripley) can...i ate mine and tasted it....sooooo yummy...alle just gulped hers...I don't think she tasted it at all (little piggy girl!)

But what was really funny tonight: mom was in the office and heard alle roaming around...she went out and found alle had taken her scarf out of her bag!!! Alle said she looked really good in it...mom though wasn't happy! She took it from alle so alle went to go to sleep on the bed! Mom told alle she was watching her!!! Then alle came into the office and then back out to the living room. Dad went out to the living room and found that alle had been dumpster diving! Dad just shook his head and said it is always an adventure. I wonder if that means we will be going out for another walk??? Isn't that an adventure?

bed and biscuits

well, we have had our new bed for a couple of days now...it doesn't fluff up even though we are still trying. dad tried to give us some biscuits and we just hid them...since he didn't give us any more, we finally ate the ones he gave us....he said..."hey...what are you eating....you didn't eat them earlier???"

when mom came home she gave us her yummy biscuits that she made and we ate them right away! dad asked mom whats up...when he gave us biscuits we saved them....mom looked and asked dad if these other biscuits were the ones he gave us...BOLBOLBOL..they were...mom said well DUH....those were store bought...not yummy mom biscuits!!!

but dad did take us out for some great walks...didn't see that funny looking goat though...guess we will have to wait for mom to find it again!

Mom washed the blankeys dad keeps in his car for us...she brought them upstairs and alle promptly took them off the chair and laid on them! mom couldn't believe it! She called dad and told on alle!

BOLBOLBOLBOLBOL!!!! Mom made us go outside while she took a shower...we barked to come back in but dad IGNORED US!!!! We taught him!! Mom finished her shower and asked dad if he let us in...he said no...and she told him that clearly we let ourselves back in...dad said we were still outside...she told him to turn around and say that...we were pretending to sleep on our beds!! BOLBOLBOL!!!! Mom said the door was still open...dad said he will have to teach us to close the door behind us and he hopes we don't have a key...like we need one!!!

Water shooting out of the ground!

OMG!! Dad let us out this morning and after a couple of minutes…and mind you , we were just minding our business…when water started shooting out of the ground! Well, it was amazing…but really scary…we raced to the porch and demanded that we be let back inside. Mom heard us and said she was coming, but dad got to the door first and said to mom…hey…why are the sprinklers on??? Mom said, hmmmmm, the sprinklers are on? She just said she knew what happened…went downstairs in the garage, and magically made the water stop. When she came upstairs, she told dad that when he was working with the guys yesterday, he turned the sprinklers on. All we know…problem….solved…now if they would just get the #@$! out of our yard!

Mom had her car in some kinda shop...she said it was with the car doctor yesterday and she found out that there was a nail in her tire...funny we call them paws...she had to look for another tire...you can replace them???? anyway, she was not happy...especially since she found out that her car has spensive tires!

then mom was fighting with her computer....she couldn't get 'puter to work so she told us..no tweeting for us...grrrrrrrr...of course we had grrrrrrs but it was nothing compared to the words mom was saying...she gave up....went to the bedroom to read and found out the tv wasn't working...oh....mom was not having a good night...we just decided to stay in the office with dad!

so this morning mom is up....and she still is fighting with puter....we have to give her sad eyes and whine for our breakfast....mom said she was sorry...and got our breakfast! then she took us on long walk...guess she got 'puter working again.

well, last evening we went out looking for mom....dad said she wouldn't be coming home yet, but we didn't believe him. Hmmm...he was right...mom didn't come home so we went in..made sad eyes at dad until he gave us treats.

FINALLY!!!! MOM IS HOME!!! she didn't bring us any new treats but at least she is home and she gave us treats and played with us! we told mom that the dogs across the way got out when she was gone and they caught a rabbit and ate it in front of us. dad said it was pretty disgusting...hmmm wonder if that means it looks like it tastes good....oh well. We played a lot with mom...now we are tired and going to sleep! all is well!

HEY SHE DIDN'T EVEN LOOK IN HER BAG! She came out and looked and dad went to the office and he found i had it. DARN MOM AND DAD!!

kinda a strange day

Mom stayed home from work today.....that was weird, but she took us on another long walk this morning...i was kinda hoping to see those crazy looking chickens again (oh...mom says they are called peacocks.....WHATEVER...they still looked silly!), but rippy still wasn't feeling well and she ate a lot of grass. Mom then said we would go to the place where there is a lot of the grass we like to eat so rip could eat more if she wanted...but she didn't want any more.

When we got home, we watched mom go up in the hillside...looked like she was collecting pine needles....how strange....mom said it was to keep us safe..hmmmm

Then mom made us some biscuits!!! They were soooooo good! We wanted to eat them all, but mom said no! GRRRRRRR.

WHAT A DAY!!! mom took us on great long walk this morning...we saw some really funny looking chickens....looks like they were out too late since they looked like they were still in their good clothes! Take a look and see what you think!!

Mom went out but she remembered us!! she brought us home all sorts of treats!! but then mom saw that rippy had gotten sick and so she had to give ripley a bath. she told dad that rippy didn't seeem to be feeling well. dad asked if we needed to take her to the doctor, mom said not yet, she would watch her.

BUT THE BEST part of our day was when mom made us PUPCAKES!!! they were really yummy, specially the frosting (that was the best...mom says frosting is usually the best on people cakes too). rippy wasn't too sick to eat them!

He was going to call the company anyway to let them know but then he got in the office...OMG!!! NO INTERNET!!!...of course that meant we couldn't tweet cause mom won't let us have a phone....THANKS MOM!!! (note sarcasm in our voice!!). anyway....by time mom got to work to check phone number for company, everything was back to "normal" until dad found out later in the day that the tv in the kitchen wasn't working.
He called mom...mom said check the other tvs..they were ok so she told him she would check it when she got home. dad gave us some treats and alle barked...mom knew it was alle and she told dad to tell alle not to inhale her treats...Mom is really smart.

Ouch!

Well, somehow this morning while I was outside with that big palooka sister of mine, I tore one of my nails. WOW - was that painful and I was bleeding!!! Dad didn't see it right away but noticed me licking "spots" on the floor. When he saw it was blood, holy moly did he ever freak out. He was going nuts. If I wasn't in so much pain, I would have laughed my head off.

He was screaming into the phone trying to get mom, and then the vet. He took me to that nice place where the doggy hotel is and they fixed me up. I got a big bandage on my paw which I immediately started to chew off. THEN, dad put this cone shaped thing on my head. Well...I never!

I haven't eaten and I won't drink because I feel so lousy. The only good thing was watching dad "lose it" when I got hurt and, now, sending him on a guilt trip for keeping this cone thingie on me. He melts when I shoot him the big, soulful eyes and I refuse to eat or drink.

Wish mom was here. She's a trained medical professional. Dad is funny and means well, but I hear he's trained in the "dark arts" (something called "the law").

I'll be ok, but I sure feel lousy right now.

uh oh

so here i am lying quietly on the sofa and then MOM comes and finds a towel next to me....and then she finds a container that she apparently recognized. She showed it to dad, he thought it was a toy and we were playing with it all day (darn dad!)...mom said it isn't a toy, it was for her sewing stuff..she said it had a rope on it...no more...dad said it was long gone!!! then she gave him the towel...he said it was from his gym bag....they went in the bedroom and mom said she had seen a towel on the bed that wasn't there anymore...did dad leave it there? he said no, it was in his gym bag of course he looked and there was no towel there....HA...They have no proof...they didn't see me take it...they are just guessing...my story is that dad is losing it..there was never a towel in his gym bag!!!!

now we are tired!!

So we had a great day....mom took us on ANOTHER walk!! There were some people we saw...they pet us and told us how great we are (DUH!!!). Mom saw that big HUGE rottweiler again...she didn't let it get near us. Then dad came out and joined us....he said one of the other dogs were out...he was worried about us but we were ok...we were being pet by the other neighbor girl and her boyfriend. it was pretty warm out in the sun but the wind was blowing so it kept us cool in the shade, but now we are tired...time to go to sleep!

OMG

Oh the NERVE!!! There was a SQUIRREL in our tree stealing oranges! Not to worry, we are on top of it...that squirrel heard us. at least it was smart enough not to get on the balcony!

So mom left her shower scrunchy out and alle went into the bathtub and got it out. Dad didn't know what it was so he called mom....mom asked him if her scrunchy was still in the shower...it wasn't mystery solved!!! Mom described it perfectly for him....Alle was sooooooo excited!!!

Mom's purse

So dad doesn't know how far to close the door for us when we go to sleep...so, this morning, rip and i got up and what do you know??!!! We were able to go into the living room. Mom's purse was there...it was soooo great...i emptied it out so i could see what she had in it. Her wallet was quite cool but i really wanted to see what she had on her music thingy she calls her mp3 but she did something to it so i couldn't get it on----DARN MOM!!!

Mom did take us on a walk later...it was really fun that is until this big fat dog came after us. Mom yelled at it...i could tell...she didn't like it at all and she was trying to rush us away from it. I wanted to look at it....what a weirdo....it kept saying nasty things to us...i wonder if it eats with that same mouth...Rip was scared...she just stood there. Mom told Rip it was ok....just to come and she told me to come on...that thing kinda just kept coming at us growling and barking. There was another dog with it but it didn't do anything.

When mom came home she told dad that this big a** "rottweiler" that weighted as much as the three of us came at us...Mom wasn't happy......but she did give us treats!!!

Now THIS?!

Talk about malfeasance!!! (heard daddy use that word)

First, mom gives us BEETS, cleverly mixed in with our food (gack), then she put us outside last night in the dark! Yep, that's right, and she didn't turn on the light so we could see what was out there. Talk about scary. Thank goodness for dad! He saw this gross...uh, whatever that word was...oh, malfeasance, and turned on the lights.

Whew, that was close!

that was really weird!

So mom and dad took us out for a walk this weekend. It was great...we had lots of fun. on the way back we saw these really fluffy dogs....and one just kept barking and barking and barking. I just looked at it like....hey....chill out, what's up with that! the man with the dog called him chewbacca...mom said it was more like a cross between an ewok and a wookie...she called it a briard.....i just called it really weird! what does it do with all that fur and it really does need to chill!!????!

helping mom

So mom finished putting everything away and i helped. When we were at the hotel, mom washed our beds. I found this great leather thing so i hid it under the bed...WHO KNEW MOM WOULD LOOK UNDER MY BED!!! for SOME reason, mom was looking at my bed....i think she wants to get another one like it, anyway she lifted up the corner of my bed and she found the leather thing....She told me I couldn't have it that it was dad and her passports! Passports....i wonder where Rip and i can go with them??? I just know we would have lots of fun!!!!!

visit to the grandparents

so, it has really been great being home...we went on a great walk yesterday with mom and dad. alle ate soooo much grass that she threw up.....it was pretty yucky!!

Dad caught a cold and doesn't feel well today. mom took us to her mom's house. it was sooooo much fun. alle wanted to play with grandma's dog but she got really scared when she saw alle and me walk in and even with only alle outside...she was too scared to play. Grandma said it was because we were soooo big. Mom picked grandma's dog and brought her iside. she brought her over to me cause grandma was petting me, but she was still pretty scared so mom put her down and she went into her own room. Then grandpa and mom's brother came home...mom's brother went upstairs....mom caught alle going upstairs too. Alle said upstairs was great...i just liked to be in the kitchen where grandma was cooking.

what a great day!!!

we had a cool time

So, mom and dad took us to a hotel!! It was GREAT!! Ripley wasn't to sure about it at first...she blamed me cause i made the house a mess before we left. But it was really cool....we had a great bed...good food...lots of walks...and a lot of petting...then we had a bath!!!

Mom and dad got us yesterday....it was sooooooo great to see them!! Ripley won't leave mom or dad's side. She really missed them even though she did enjoy it at the hotel. Mom and dad brought us some great pupcakes and some new toys! Rip is checking out the toys...they are a little "different."

All in all...the hotel was great but it is great to be home!

up early

so clearly something is up....so alle got up really early this morning...got into the trash in the office..took dad's new mouse pad.....went into the living room and got some rice, got into mom's purse and generally got into EVERYTHING....then she went into mom and dads room and looked out the window. She woke mom up and mom came looking....she was just SHOCKED at what she saw...she just looked at alle and said that she knew alle was up to something. that mom...she is pretty smart....even early in the morning!!!

not a good look

Yesterday, when dad went to the store and put us in his office to keep us out of trouble (HA HA HA HA), Alle tried on his reading glasses! I told her the glasses weren't a good look for her. Okay...I actually laughed, but that's what I meant to say if I could have stopped laughing. Alle wasn't too crazy about "the look" either, I guess, because she started chewing them. To say that dad was upset when he saw what was left of his glasses would be an understatement. He chased Alle all over the house. Fat chance he'll ever catch her. I mean...Alle isn't that fast compared to me, but compared to dad?!?! OMG! I'm laughing my ass off again!

yummmmmm

FINALLY!! mom gave us good food to eat!!!! alle found the new cans and she tried to get dad to give us more!! OMG that last stuff she gave us....well let's just say trash tasted better!! and the food mom made us was good until she used...BEETS!!! who said we liked BEETS!!! then they got us that !$%*...ANYTHING should taste great after that!!! Hopefully we will have a decent meal tomorrow!!

Run of the house

We love it when daddy goes out & leaves us to roam the whole house! When he went to the post office (whatever that is) Alle tried out the bathtub for size (for when she takes her bath before her date) and left big paw prints that amazed daddy. Then daddy found 4 of his hats and our jackets on the floor. His hats really don't go with our "look", so we just chewed them a little. Turns out...they aren't very tasty either. We were thinking of getting that "European look" for our walks...you know, with a spiffy chapeau and a cape. (Mom's scarf tasted better than it looked on us so that's out)

Time to relax. Hope daddy takes us for a walk again tomorrow.

oh that alle!!!

uh oh....alle is in trouble!!! Dad caught her with mom's sponge (apparently, she doesn't have another one of those scrunchy thingys). then when mom came home, alle went into her bag and took out her scarf. i think she just wanted to try it on...but mom came and took it from her and told her that she can't take things out of her bag.

cloaking devices available??

OMG....mom went to take a shower and she asked dad where did he put her scrunchy thingy...dad said he put it in the shower, mom couldn't find it so dad went to look...OMG....i wonder how to become invisible right now...dad said he put it there and i was with him. he told mom that he told me to stay out of there...now the scrunchy thing is missing, it isn't in the shower...so they went looking...then i heard the shreeeeek...mom found it in the living room not in the condition she wanted....OMG...do you think they will know it was me???? Oh yea....mom and dad knew...dad said he will have to go to something called defcon 5??? i wonder if that means they will get me more scrunchy thingys??

alle

Explains a lot

Well, I guess this solves the mystery as to who took the toothpaste on Monday. Wait a sec!
Missing toothpaste...toothbrush...deodorant...lipstick...purses...shoes...HEY! Alle's getting ready for a DATE! Dad better keep a close eye on Big Red to make sure her suitor is trustworthy.

Wonder if Alle's "friend" (snicker) has a friend for me. As the "cougar" of the family, he'd better be younger than me!

what a day!

so, mom wanted to take rip to the doctor today cause she thought rip was coughing a little bit more....i couldn't tell...but we went to this nice doctor right near the house. i went too since dad wanted to go and i didn't want to stay home alone (even though that probably would have been lots of fun). anyway, rip had some pictures taken of her chest...doctor said she was looking at rips heart and lungs...and she said that rip had some bronchitis...so anyway...mom is giving rip some pills. mom had to go out after we got home and she brought us some new toys...they are great fun. when dad went out later, we asked mom to take us for a walk...she did even though she was watching a movie. What a great day!!!!

need to make some calls

Mom was sooooo cool...she left her purse open and her phone was there. i needed to make some calls...so i was trying to use it....the only problem was she caught me. She told me i couldn't make calls, she showed her phone to dad and made a call to the house...i don't know why she did that..heck we were still at home!!! anyway she was a real kill joy this morning, grrrrrr...still need to make some calls.

thank you's

so it seems alle really has learned to sit so mom is now going to try to teach her to "stay".....riiiiiiggghhhhtttt! Meanwhile, we found some of mom's thank you cards so we were going to write some but we couldn't find a writing thingy...and since it is pretty dry out, we can't even get our paws muddy to use that so, we left them for dad to pick up. He gave them to mom.

all in all.....a pretty quiet week!

we were pretty good today...dad went out but he left us a scrunchy thing in the bathroom to play with. when mom came home she recognized the scrunchy and told dad that he must have put it outside of the bathtub. it was ok though...mom said it needed to be replaced anyway. she must have had a rough day cause she went down to the garage and left her coat there then went and took a shower! she still gave us our cookies!!!! YEA!!!

So anyway, alle went downstairs and brought a whole package up stairs...we are sooooo proud of our work!! Take a look at the pics!! Mom took them when she came home. We heard dad call her and say that he may have made a tactical error....whatever that is....we had great fun!!! Maybe that is what tactical error means!

we went out today!!

so, mom and dad were still working in the bathroom...dad found out that we took his box of "kleenex" last night so he put out another box. then they went to the store and left us in the office....yep we took his "kleenex." the box is sooo great to rip apart and we do have to say that dad's kleenex is soooooo soft (almost as good as his pillows!!)!

Anyway mom and dad were amazed when they came home....they didn't even pick our creation!

they had to go back out...but when they came back they took us to PETCO!!!! We love to go there....everybody looks at us and pets us! It was soooooooo much fun!
