Enough with the snow already!

My tummy is cold!

You can see my dilemma. My legs are short and my tummy gets very cold in the snow. I’m a good boy though and always go outside to do my “business.” My little sister Blossom is so tiny, she would disappear in the snow! It’s my job to keep her warm.

Keeping my little sister warm

Mom says that she has been reading on the HSPC Facebook page that there are animals left in the cold. That’s just not right. If you see an animal that has no shelter, please call your local animal services. There is a law that dogs must have shelter from the weather. People work very hard to get these laws passed, so let’s use ’em!!!

Stay warm, and keep your critters warm too!

Your friend,

My New Year’s Resolutions!!!!

Happy New Year!

1. I will not play tug-of-war with Dad’s underwear when he’s on the toilet.
2. I’ll remember that the garbage collector is NOT stealing our stuff.
3. I do not need to suddenly stand straight up when I’m lying under the coffee table.
4. I will not roll my toys behind the fridge.
5. I must shake the rainwater out of my fur BEFORE entering the house.
6. I will not eat the cats’ food, before or after they eat it.
7. I will stop trying to find the few remaining pieces of clean carpet in the house when I am about to throw up.
8. I will not throw up in the car.
9. I will not roll on dead seagulls, fish, crabs, etc.
10. I will not lick my human’s face after eating animal poop.
11. “Kitty box crunchies” are not food.
12. I will not eat any more socks and then redeposit them in the backyard after processing.
13. The diaper pail is not a cookie jar.
14. I will not wake Mommy up by sticking my cold, wet nose up her bottom end.
15. I will not chew my human’s toothbrush and not tell them.
16. I will not chew crayons or pens, especially not the red ones, or my people will think I am hemorrhaging.

21. My head does not belong in the refrigerator.
22. I will not bite the officer’s hand when he reaches in for Mom’s driver’s license and car registration.

Okay, so I broke some of these already……

Happy New Year Everyone!!!

Merry Christmas Everybody!!

Merry Christmas to all my friends!! I hope you have a wonderful day with lots of goodies to eat and presents to chew. I know a lot of you were worried about me after my last blog–the wasabi pea incident–but you’ll be pleased to hear that there were no after effects at all. Mom says I’ve got a cast iron stomach!

Have a great day tomorrow. Stay comfy and warm, and don’t eat too much!!!

Lots of love and Christmas kisses,

Abner

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.  I want to say a special thank-you to the Humane Society of Pulaski County.  Those people saved my life!  I wish I had a million dollars and I would give it all to them so they could save more homeless animals like me. 

Mom’s got a big turkey in the oven so me and my family can have a nice dinner.  Mom says it’s okay  for us doggies to have some turkey as long as it doesn’t have any fat or gristle, and NO BONES.  Veggies are good too, but not sweeties.  And no alcohol!  I know you wouldn’t deliberately give a furry friend some alcohol, but one day Mom left a glass of wine on the table and when she came back all that was left was a few spit bubbles.  Of course, I got the blame—again!!!

I know you have a lot of visitors this time of year.  Remind them to KEEP THE DOORS CLOSED!!  Some people who don’t have pets at home don’t realize how important it is to keep us from running away.  Better still, keep us in a bedroom somewhere so we can stay out of trouble.

Talk to you later!

What Can I Say?

Mysterious footprint on the coffee table

Slightly damaged Kleenex box

The forensics aren’t back yet so I’m innocent until proven guilty.  Hey Mom, how about spending some time with the Swiffer duster now and again!!

My Brother Trevor

My brother Trevor

 

Today was a very sad day. My brother Trevor died this morning. He had been ill for quite a long time and was on lots of medicine and even had to have a shot twice a day. Mom and Dad really loved him a lot. They have lots of good friends who understand what it’s like to lose a furry member of the family. Some people aren’t so lucky to have good friends like that and are made fun of when they cry. It’s okay to feel sad and take time off work if you have to. Furry family friends are very special and can’t just be replaced like an old car or something. I miss Trevor. He was a good boy.

My Little Sister

Blossom got a clean bill of health from the vet today! She is such a tiny thing, I didn’t like to think of her getting her shots and everything, but she was very brave. Blossom was rescued by the Humane Society of Pulaski County about a year ago from a hoarding situation. Hoarders aren’t always bad people. Sometimes they feel like they have to rescue every homeless animal, then they get too many to take care of. Blossom had bad teeth when HSPC found her and she had to have a lot of them removed. Her nails were very long too. She’s doing good now though! I have to protect her because she is so little. Mom says I could inhale her with one big snort!

Why Do I Get The Blame?

One of the bad things about living in a multi-dog household is that I get the blame for everything! Okay….so Mom found it between my paws, but I was just looking, honest!! And what’s the big deal? Why does everyone get so excited about these little pieces of paper with the ugly geezers on them anyway? Until it’s been foresensicated, I’m innocent until proven guilty, and it’s really Mom’s fault for leaving it where I can get it.

Mom and Dad are getting ready to take my little sister Blossom to the vet for her check-up. I’ll let you know how it went when she gets back.

Later!
