Cosmo is pushing his fat little luck.

He drapes himself on momma like a cheap suit...

And she lets him... He is a momma's boy... Who me? Jealous??? Phhhhshaaa. Honey I am JD, King of all puppies everywhere!
He is just noise. Annoying noise. I am not sweating the small stuff. I will have momma on my terms when I am good and ready. Later, tonight. JD. Pssssss.Yea, we are almost ready for furniture to come back...this flood was not fun.

The Cosmo checking out the goings on as rebuild starts at the house. They are putting down a floor!

So. Not to be too forward, but... Hmmm when is the kitchen coming back on line? I miss it.

This IS ambition

MAX is mastering a super duper giant squeaky.

Think it's easy? When was the last time you carried around in your mouth something bigger than you...and located the squeakers and successfully squeaked them?  And no. A 7-11 big bite does not count.  1. It is not bigger than you. 2. It does not squeak. That noise is you squealing... Which it's ironic...when you think about it.

It smells clean to me!


It is a white lie, but it's a necessary lie so she stops that infernal vacuuming.

Just LIE.

Trust me on this.

This is what we do while momma

......momma makes our dinner. The Wendy is hiding. Momma is losing what is left of her mind...Hooman do not adapt well. Ok THIS hooman does NOT adapt well.

Going for the cute factor to distract her...

What's on the other side of the fence?

So, I stuck my face under the fence. So... I got a little schmuzty. You would have thought that the world has ended... Momma had a meltdown of sorts. Seriously woman, get a grip, get a new lampshade, get a life, get some Prozac,wine anyone...vermouth? Massage? Hot bath? (Yea I known...only a hooman would find a hot bath soothing...freaks!)

Thank Dogness JD decided to romance me. It distracted her from the fact that even a wet towel did not really wipe away my new found "maquillage". I won't bore you with the stresses and dramas of my household, but someone will be neutered over a dent on the fridge door. It's either that or they have to make the thing all healed. Deep breath. She is staring at me. Dang it, better go take cover... I feel some sort of blueberry facial scrub coming on... 'Vie Oh yea... The answer to the question is ...grass. Grass is on the other side of the fence. Grass, and no, it's not greener.

blogging? Nooooo....survival is all we can manage

Don't ask... It's a royal mess.  Being in survival mode is not fun...

Today they take the appliances away. Sniff... Guess what momma is NOT doing? Baking...cooking...living... The thing is... She is cleaning, I know right? Here is a sponge momma... The ocean has spilled, go to it... They claim they are making "progress". No, don't ask me. All is see is what I see... A MESS! You know, the hotel was ok, it was really nice, but it is a hotel... Take away the joys of the elevator and lobby and you are left with a hotel... I am not thrilled, let's just say it. Deep breath, belly rubbing time. No more lemonade! Making lemonade out of lemons only works for the Florida Growers! Up here in Va...it's not working. I am going back to bed. And rain too? Ugh ugh ugh ugh ugh ugh".........😱😡😣 'Vie

sorry daddy

I know it's like they don't care its your b day... or that Easter or Passover or  Mother's day... are coming...but THIS was NOT my idea!

Momma keeps saying...This too shall pass... but honestly I am not sure we will survive it.

Daddy... we will survive? Right? Momma looks like a lost soul. She walks around in circles holding her Dyson vacuuming  who knows what... It is like trying to mop the ocean with a sponge.

They took the granite... they took the sinks... and now it looks like we are getting some twisted Hildi Santo Tomas shower curtain project all over the house!

OY! they are taking the cabinets!!!!

And momma gets mad at my for doing a roll over on the floor. Not one peep out of her about the stuff that is going on... not one! Seriouly....

Sniff, and we are getting groomed today...

Daddy, happy birthday? I guess?

Life in the BIG city

Ahh the twinkles of city life, my cousin Max-aBillion is just chillaxing.

Hey dude, we are headed your way soon.

Save  me some twinkles. It's crazy times here. We have an empty house just about!


Sunday, March 20, 2016

did YOU know?

that if the furniture and rugs are NOT here

You can rock and roll all over the floor?

                                        What I don't get is why she is yelling at me to stop.

Clearly my making lemonade out of a lemon situation is not to HER liking.
[My momma is weird]

       One more, for the road... I have been doing this all over the empty house.

It is making her crazy[er]

DEAR Cosmo

Well played., well played, but given the ongoing disaster in this house, cute is NOT going to cut it. Momma  needs anesthetics, soooo bottle yourself into some serious spirits, Adam can hook you up with that, and then MAYBE that woman will need you more than she needs me.
Mocktails.... pleeeeeease

I am just saying....

RECALL: FROMM canned dog food

March 18, 2016 — 
Fromm Family Foods of Mequon, Wisconsin, has announced the voluntary recall of the following canned dog foods because they may contain elevated levels of vitamin D:
Fromm Gold Chicken Pate Dog Food       
12 ounce cans
Can case code: #11893
Individual can UPC: 72705 11892

Fromm Gold Chicken & Duck
Can case code: #11895
Individual can UPC: 72705 11894

Fromm Gold Salmon & Chicken Pate
Can case code: #11891
Individual UPC: 72705 11890
The affected products were shipped to distributors between December 2015 and February 2016.

What triggered the recall?

In house analysis by  Fromm revealed that the affected canned dog foods exceed the recommended levels of vitamin D.
The manufacturer maintains that the voluntary recall is " being implemented in an abundance of caution as symptoms should only be noted in situations where dogs have eaten the affected products as their only meal for an extended period of time and leading to depression of appetite."
To date there have been no reports of any health problems, but Fromm is recommending the affected products not be fed.
the FDA has been notified and we welcome you sharing this information. 

What do you do if you have these products?

Return them to the authorized retailer for a full refund.

You you have questions  you may call Fromm Customer Service at 800-325-6331. Extended hours have been allocated to facilitate consumer inquiries during the recall.
If you wish to pursue the matte with the FDA you may do any of the following:
U.S. citizens can report complaints about FDA-regulated pet food products by calling the consumer complaint coordinator in your area.

f/f LIFE

Hoomans.  They waste so much money and time on stupid inventions...  Egg separators???  Chia pets?   Pet rocks? All the other stuff they market in the wee hours of the morning because the caca could not withstand scrutiny of an awake mind in broad daylight... all JUNK.

I have often discussed with you the need for certain inventions. One of those has been the .yum file app that would instantly allow transfer of food.  A modern replicator if you will [yea I am a StarTrek fan, so what of it?]  Is anyone working on that? Probably not, because????

Well the other major invention that needs to be actualized right this second is the f/f life button.
That would be the FAST FORWARD life button. Of course it would be marketed with the PAUSE and the REPLAY options.  But for now focus on f/f Life. You have no idea what I am woofing about?

Think about it. Could you use a f/f life button?  I could right now.  I would speed past the packing and ensuing destruction right into the rebuild or even the finished state of my house. Just think of all the grief and aggravation it would spare my momma and daddy.  And they think I am just a fluffy cutie. I am an idea dog. My imagination is not limited by your implied conventional limitation.  I accept nothing at face value. Think about the application of a f/f life button. You could speed through surgeries, break ups, sad points of your life, etc etc and actually maximize what is good about life itself.

But no. Hoomans stay focused on making self tanner that turns people orange. [SOURcasm.] That's really useful.  Ask Trump.

Meanwhile, I am trying to keep my hoomans from total meltdown. Hopeless task.

It's like trying to hold jello between your fingers...


Tuesday, March 15, 2016

No, for real, I need to be held right now!

Oh heck. Oh dear, Oh my... I am going to have a complete collapse.

What the woof?  My world is once again upside down!   Boxes, packing going on, strangers in my house. Truly hoomans, enough already!  We had just finished the 8 month hell week that you called a remodel that was supposed to take 7 weeks. What is this????


Ahh, yes I do remember. The dishwasher had that "accident". Mh. If any of us had "accidented"  like that thing did, momma would have belly banded or diapered us for life! Now it all makes sense.

Momma's "mood", daddy's eyebrows. [They wrinkle together like one long squiggle]...  floors are damaged, there is stuff growing under them. Everything has to come out. They mean everything. No really.... EVERYTHING.


They are packing everything, they are moving everything out. You can feel momma's apprehension heavy, like a wet blanket on your shoulders.

They promise 3 months.  In dog years.... almost 2 yrs!!!!!!! You know what really shocked me?  The pantry. IT IS EMPTY. I have never seen it empty.  It feels like my best friend has died.


You promise momma, everything will be ok?  What do you mean you hope so?
Hope?  No no no. I need more than that, I need for sures.

The big fridge is going???? Cosmo, can I borrow Splish?

Where are you going with my couch?????

Heyyyy hoomannnnn....

Dearest Katie.

First read this:


Dearest Katie,

Girl! Where do I start?  How about me being your reality touchstone.  10 reality checks...

1. Ziggy is NOT the only dog in the world.

2. How about you getting some self respect and working on a different strategy. Make him want YOU.

3. You are way tooo available. Too needy, too ... too. BACK OFF!

4. Yes, Ziggy is handsome, but he is not the only handsome dog. Have you met my JD, or my Cosmo? I mean ... woooof baby!  Booties that should be immortalized in stone. Tails that rival the best plumage. Soft, white, fluffy cute, snuggly and loving.

5. And let's face it, I am just going to be blunt and say it... you are an emotional mismatch for Ziggy.

6. Katie, you have the soul of a Bichon owner. Your need level equals the Bichon human focus fulfillment need. Simply put... You are barking up the wrong breed. He sees you as a bucket of need.
Any Bichon would see you as an ideal human! Ziggy is not enough dog to comprehend a five hour snuggle.

7. For all intent and purposes... you are in an abusive relationship. Neglect is a form of abuse.
Walk away.... just walk away and cut your losses.

8. Have you considered stuffing your pockets with mortadella?  Hey, I am just trying to shift the power here... to achieve #2..... make him want you.

9. The Wendy is right. She said..."Katie has no sense of self and no relationship can be defined until she knows who she is" Woaaaa that girl is deep. Come over here, and the four of us resident Bichons will help you define who you are.

10. Maybe you should make sure Ziggy sees you involved with another dog. I am just saying... Take back the power!

DC Cooper allegedly caught shredding a box---

In his defense, he was trying to fulfill the role of a shredding machine. Uncle Phil, he was doing you a favor.

I think you should be paying him Uncle Phil... for his work. And one more observation. His scratching posts are made of cardboard, so... why would he know this cardboard box is not for him?
I am just saying.

Hoomans: watching them is so entertaining!

You have had THAT experience, right?

You know, when your hooman does a "hooman" thing that is so bizarre that it makes no real sense?

We are watching the gathering of the leaves. Stop laughing.  They take it seriously. I know, right?

But this is a whole "theng" !  They dress for it, [long sleeves, blah blah, tucked in pants, waterproof booths... bug repellent hanging things... apparently this is the protocol...] it is a whole production number. And then they rake.

Mind you when the gardeners come they bring in huge sucker uppers that suck the leaves up. This is the -in between- leaf gathering.

My hoomans are so proud of themselves when they make mounds of dead leaves. It almost makes it painful to watch when a gust of wind scatters the mound in a thousand directions. You have got to give them credit. They don't give up. Braving the wind, the yuck factor and allergies they persist.
Rake, gather, bag, rake gather bag...

Momma measures her "success" by the number of bags she fills. Those are proudly lined up by the curb on the side of our house. I suppose it is some badge of honor.

An hour or so into this routine, the woman seems to be satisfied enough to go back inside. Between us, we all know that her efforts are fleeting at best. Hahahahaha ... like leaves in the wind. I crack me up.

By the time we get back inside, and momma washes away her efforts, or as she calls it - she de contaminates, the wind has erased her clear paths and there are more leaves on the ground.

I suppose,  we will have another show tomorrow.

Wesley and his braces

His name is Wesley.

He needed to correct some dental issues which prevented him from being able to close his mouth.

You can read all about it here.

Momma. NO. "Gansta cute" has NOTHING to do with it. NO. Momma, I will not get braces!

I am not having this conversation, You are ridiculous.

We need a vet- orthodontist in our area.  There are too many teeth pullers and shame on them, you know who you are...


Monday, February 29, 2016

if you force me to watch endless hours of rag parades...

I am entitled to tell it like it is. No, no fondant, no icing, no sugar coating. I have to do this.  I have to focus on the most awful.  Hideous. Pretentious. Vile... outfit deserving of the dead swan award  goes to

Heidi Klum. and Marchesa.


Sooooo I am NOT alone. As rags go, this one was hideous.  Seriously, this is a Marchesa gown?

 Georgina Chapman , you really hate Heidi, right?  After this, you better show me some real changes in your judgment of Kini Zamora. You know, you usually whine that he is "old ladish" and "needs to edit" more. UGH Did you look at this ugly design? I bet you could have used your own advice on that thing before it left your showroom!  That "thing" has no redeeming  feature at all. Heidi, UGH!

So which one of you ran to the dollar store to get the two ugly fluff flowers????  You should have kept running.

If momma had even remotely contemplated putting something like this on, I would her ripped off of her and pushed her out naked!

It was vile, I screamed "Mine eyes, mine eyes" and I pretended to rip them out of my head and throw them to the ground.

And... Heidi I am harsh on you, because you have been abusing US for years!  Yes you have.

Here is my evidence: http://thecelebrityauction.co/wp2/cwitter-article/heidi-klum-in-versace-at-the-emmys-big-bird-fug-the-worst-look-of-the-night/

The fugly bottle brush dress! ugh! http://zap2it.com/2014/08/2014-creative-arts-emmys-best-worst-dressed-heidi-klum-kate-mara/

And the crotch fringe number... http://tomandlorenzo.com/2013/11/heidi-klum-in-marchesa-at-the-2013-american-music-awards/

http://www.celebitchy.com/136080/globes_fashion_heidi_klum_and_the_rest_of_the_worst/ and this hankie draped mess...UGH!

How about that Fredricks of Hollywood wanna be horror... Yea the one that was just tawdry, this one:

Look here if you have doubts.... Look at all the evidence!  https://www.google.com/search?q=heidi+klum+worst+dressed&biw=1920&bih=945&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwj8pYDmmZ3LAhUNyGMKHQGRAhYQsAQIJA it is an endless parade of bad taste.

Enough already!

We deserve better. I propose that Heidi Klum be forced to a time out and that before she is allowed to violate our eyes again, she should go through a "PROBATIONARY" PERIOD. She should be required to get prior approval for any outfit she plans on inflicting on us from  Anna Wintour, Tim Gunn [put your differences aside guys, this creature is eroding at the taste level of America and it is not going to stop without intervention!]  and a random woman to be selected from the pool of qualified voters, 2 out of 3 must approve the outfit before it can be inflicted upon us.  What do you think?

I have woofed my peace and I will not be forced to watch again if she is in the line up!

Black and white Sunday: What is THAT smell????

Four beautiful Bichons. And THAT smell.                                         OhMyWoof, THAT smell.

What is THAT smell?

THE Wendy caught that waft of something delicious. What is it??? She is going to sit and wait and enjoy it. Her mouth is watering, but that is the price you pay for smelling something new and delicious.

it WOKE me UP!
How can anyone remain asleep when their nose is being flooded with this smell?????  They can't!

JD says: "Well, you GOT my attention, now what?"

Cosmo is just trying to figure it all out. What is that SMELL???

THAT smell is sugo all'Amatriciana being made. Pancetta, guanciale... sauteing and filling the air with promises of DELICIOUS.

Says who?? Says whom???  What do you mean NOT for four leggeds? Momma woman, this is serious. Two paws serious!  I am not asking you to give us the "WHOLE" thing, [Mhhh that would be so great....epic even!] but we have to be included in the tasting! 

You want to irreparably harm our relationship? What do you mean how?  Read about it here: The Human–Canine Bond: The Evolution of Unique Social Skills Bobbi MacInnis, B.A MacInnis, B. (2007). The Human–Canine Bond: The Evolution of Unique Social Skills. Journal of Applied Companion Animal Behavior, 1(1), 28-33.

You don't have time to read that? Ok, then take my woof for it. You need to share, even a taste, but you MUST SHARE.  It is for the good of our relationship.

And it could be poisonous. We can be your taste tasters.  Or it could need salt or something! You know your salt meter does not work...

'vie, selfless to a fault, volunteer taster.

Sugar and Dachshund Nola  Thank you for hosting,
don;t you think we should taste or share even?

Sepia Saturday: Time to go OUTTTTTTT!

Don't waste my time.


Daddy is all mine and I want to go out.

Get your rags on and forgetaboutit when it comes to "housedoing". I am feeling Williamsburg, lunch out, walking at Town Center, something FUN.

Hoomans. Priorities all screwed up. Hey you do know that you ONLY live once, right?

You can rest when the we watch the Oscars. Seriously, how much more passive can you get then?

Tell you what momma, I will talk the daddy into getting you one of those fried soft shell crab thingies you love, you forget the words dust, must, have to, blah blah...

We go out, we have fun, we come back exhausted, we will get all comfy and veg out watching the spanx parade  on the red carpet. It's a plan no?

Why did they settle on red for the carpet anyway? Makes no sense?  I would have gone with midnight blue. Stars shine better on a blue background.

Think about it.

Earl and Ruckus, thank you guys for co hosting!

{ CALLING ALL ANIMAL LOVERS! } In reponse to my previous post: a family in the community has lost everything due to the tornado.
