Blue Eyes

Hi! I am back and I have a new idea which I pitched to Mom earlier today. I want some of those blue contact lenses so I can have blue eyes when I want. Everyone has been looking at the new dog called Skye with blue eyes and saying how beautiful her eyes are.

I want to have blue eyes too! Mom is mean she said I can't have the contact lenses and that it was silly because my brown eyes are beautiful. Then she said we all have one special thing and mine was my nose and my sense of humor. I don't care I want the blue eyes anyway.

She is getting a lot of attention and worse still I heard her brother is coming here too and he has blue eyes too. How am I supposed to get all the girls if they bring the blue eyed wonder boy here. Only with contacts.

 Mom said I shouldn't be jealous of them and that I am beautiful the way I am.

Here she is with her eyes closed. Worst still she is really sweet and has wormed her way into everyone's heart. Emmy told me not to say that because people would think I was mean and jealous, but I just want blue eyes too. Mom and Emmy both told me off and Emmy told me to 'grow up'. Then Pebbles suddenly appeared and explained it all to me. She said beauty is on the inside and I am beautiful because I make people laugh and blue eyes are irrelevant. She talked to me for a long time and she spent her life with brown eyes like me. In the end I realized she was right and I want to stay with my beautiful brown eyes I want to be beautiful on the inside and out. The new dogs name is Sky now because her eyes are the color of the sky. She is a bit thin, but seems like a nice girl. She hasn't had all that much contact with people and never slept in a bed with the humans like I do. I learnt a valuable lesson and won't be jealous anymore of those beautiful eyes. They look great on her, but mine are beautiful too. Pebbles said when you looked into eyes you can see the soul. It doesn't matter if it's a human or a dog. I felt kind of naked then but I guess my soul doesn't mind.

 Who needs blue eyes when you can do this. I make people laugh and mom said that's one of the best contributions to the world. My girl Gemma has brown eyes and I love her. Here we all are playing with Dad.

Here is Guga enjoying his retirement.

and finally me and my girl.

Mom is busy

Mom is busy so I put the old post I wrote before I lost my balls first. In reality I feel totally normal now and don't miss them one bit. I should of said two bits here. Well mom and dad came across a white German Shepherd dog in a house nearby beeing kept in appalling conditions. She was laying in poo and couldn't walk because her back legs don't work. She was crawling around a filthy kennel and starving. I just don't understand some of those humans. Mom has called her Hope because we are all hoping she will get well.

Mom had to take her straight to a vet clinic because she was in such bad shape.

She had millions of fleas. It took three baths to get the caked on poo off of her. She has been laying in urine for weeks and now her poor skin is very irritated

She is severely mal nourished and paralysed behind.
This is so horrible I think I am going to cry.
Well she had xrays and the vet found no reason why the poor soul isn't walking. I reckon she just gave up and laid down to die. She is now recovering from this ordeal but we don't know what the outcome will be. She is twelve years old. She is having acupuncture. Mom said this is having needles stuck in her. I didn't like the sound of that but Mom said it will help her and I believe my mom. On Friday they went back to the vet clinic to see how she was getting on. She is using her back leg to scratch now which is a good sign. She is taking medications and eating well. Here she looks a bit happier.
 I asked Emmy if she will live and she wouldn't tell me the answer. I am not sure that even she knows. She said she is doing what she can. She said Pebbles is fine and playing with her like she did years ago. Emmy said Pebbles sent a kiss to everyone and thanks everyone that tried to save her. I sent a few kisses back to them both. Well after this Mom has to take in six dogs in a very dangerous situation. they are about to be thrown onto the streets like I was. The first one arrived yesterday.
 She has beautiful blue eyes. She is a young dog and just recently ost her puppies. She has dried up milking inflamed in her breast which looks painful to me. he has a brother who will be arriving soon as well. Mom can't keep up with this and needs all the help she can get so if anyody can help them they are doing as much as they can. Mom is going to try and get some of the new dogs adopted. The brother and sister are very pretty and look like wolves so Mom things there is a possibility of finding someone for them. The other four are small mixed breed dogs and Mom is so hopeful in there case. She will try though. This tiny shelter is now packed with dogs and their problems. Some have come here with serious problems so if anyone can help Mom and dad they would appreciate it. It's a lot of work and costs a lot to help dogs that often come in half dead. This girl isn't too bad she has a bald neck where the heavy chain she was on took the fur out.
 She has the problem about the milk because they said all the puppies were born dead. Mom doesn't quite believe this.
 And here is the huge heavy chain they had her tied to twenty four hours per day. Mom and Dad brought her home still wearing it because it was so difficult to get off.
She has fleas and probably worms too and will need surgery so she doesn't get pregnant again. I now see what mom means when she says dogs shouldn't be having all these puppies because look what happens to them all over the world. It isn't fair. We keep the humans company, love them, and guard them they should all treat us with respect, but they don't. Some do and many don't. I now realise how lucky I am to get to play and sleep with Gemma and Mom and Dad.  
Please don't forget to vote for me to be a super star. I want to help my mom save more dogs and pay all the bills she is running up here helping dogs. The link is at the top of the page.

I am going to the vet clinic arrrrrgggghhhh

Mom says I am going to stay at the vet's a little while alone and I am very suspicios about this after what I saw with Freddy, Oscar, and Trooper. She says this will either be tomorrow or next Tuesday. I am already having nightmares. If he comes near my privates I will bite. Oscar went back this week and came back with a black eye. Can you believe that? What do these people called vets do? Seems  like they are in business to torture us. Anyway here are some pictures of Oscars day at the vet clinic. I don't even like to look. Mom said it was to make him better. He had an irritation which Mom said was caused by his eyelashes growing inwards. It looks like the vet punched him in the eye to me. Here he is before they attacked his eye.

Here is asleep. I wouldn't turn my back on that vet for an instance. I guess he is more trusting than me. 
Here they are doing something they call surgery!
and here is the end result.
on top of all the tormentation he went through they now put something on his paw so he doesn't scratch his eye.

Pebbles Died on Saturday.

I was very upset because Pebbles died on Saturday morning at around 4.30am. We all cried. She tried to beat her illness, but she couldn't and she lost the battle. She is with Emmy now and Emmy says she is fine. Apparently she has got fatter again just like her old self and is running around healthy. Mom said I should put some pictures of Pebbles here as a tribute to her. She was with Mom and Dad for nine years and they loved her very much.

Here is Pebbles many years ago

Mom cried when she saw the beautiful pictures of Pebbles. She was buried next to Emmy facing her. Emmy said she jumped right into her arms and Emmy flew with her to Heaven to show her the way. That's where they live now.
