I'm grounded for life I think!

I was just being curious, that is my defense. I am sitting by the back door watching for squirrels. Mommy has let me out on the deck before and I always come right back in with her. She went out to do put a cover on our outside stove cooker griller thing and I decided it was time for me to explore the lay of the land. I wanted to see the backyard on my own, I am a big girl now.

Come on Mommy please let me out, I won't do anything sassy (giggles and paws crossed behind my back) Just open the door and you will see how good I am.

As soon as she opened the door, down the stairs I went. Our backyard leads to something called a 'marsh" I don't know what that is except that it is wet back there. I decided to run like the wind to the front yard. Mommy had to run to try to catch me and with her bad back, she couldn't run too fast. By the time she caught up to me I was in the road in front of our house barking at some kids on skate boards telling them to knock it off. Mommy caught me there. Why was she so mad at me?? I was just being curious. Now I can't go out by myself at all and I am grounded, so no parties for me for a while. I will try to change her mind, cause turkey day is coming and I don't want to be in trouble for that. Can you talk to her??

Please???? I am not exactly sure what grounded is, but I know she is pretty mad at me and I don't like that at all.

licks and sniffs Sasha
p.s. can you send treats, I think grounded means no treats, shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
Sasha really scared me when she ran off and especially when I found her in the road. I know better then to ever let her out there without a leash again, but in the past she has been very good and stayed with me on our deck. Lesson learned and don't worry she is still getting plenty of treats.

I have some good advice for all of you

Hi my pals. When I had my recent trip(nightmare) to see the Vet Lady, Mom found this article. Some of you may already know about this. You can never be too careful with us pets. The Vet Lady said it would be ok to give me a baby aspirin(81mg) if I needed cause my paw was infected.
"Tylenol and Your Pets
Tylenol (acetaminophen) is a pain killer and anti-fever medication commonly taken by people for minor aches and pains, fever, and soreness from arthritis. It is also a common ingredient in many children’s cough and flu medications. Because it is so regularly used in humans, most people believe that it is safe for their pet. This is incorrect.

Tylenol is extremely toxic in cats, and can be toxic to dogs as well. Cats are more frequently affected because they lack an enzyme pathway that functions to metabolize the drug properly. As little as ½ tablet of Tylenol can be fatal in cats, and although a higher dose is usually required to be toxic to dogs, many can get severely ill with a low dose. Tylenol causes damage to the liver as well as to the blood cells in both species, and clinical signs can include depression, rapid breathing, dark colored gums, swelling of the face, paws, and limbs, vomiting, drooling and death.
The safest way to avoid potential fatal reactions from Tylenol is to NEVER give it to your pet, even in very small amounts. Keep all bottles of Tylenol or other acetaminophen containing products in a securely closed cupboard or medicine cabinet to avoid spillage. If you think your pet is in pain, contact your veterinarian before giving any pain medications at home. It could save your pets life! "
Dr. Kim Yuill is a 2003 graduate of the Atlantic Veterinary College in Charlottetown, PEI. She has a strong interest in client education, wellness and preventative medicine and behavior. Dr. Yuill currently shares her home with a Boston terrier, a Pug, 2 cats, 2 budgies and her husband Charles.
Here are some people foods that we should not eat:
Grapes and raisins
Contain an unknown toxin, which can damage the kidneys. There have been no problems associated with grape seed extract.

Onions and garlic (raw, cooked, or powder)
Contain sulfoxides and disulfides, which can damage red blood cells and cause
anemia. Cats are more susceptible than dogs. Garlic is less toxic than onions.

Xylitol (artificial sweetener)
Can cause liver failure.

Can contain toxins, which may affect multiple systems in the body, cause shock, and result in death.

Macadamia nuts
Contain an unknown toxin, which can affect the digestive and nervous systems and muscle.

Chocolate, coffee, tea, and other caffeine
Contain caffeine, theobromine, or theophylline, which can be toxic and affect the heart and nervous systems.
With the holidays coming, we need to be careful and try not to get into some of the people foods that could make us sick. Cheese however, seems to be just fine, thank you very much.
Be safe and lets stay healthy!

Taking care of my Daddy

Hi my pals. It was kind of boring around here this weekend. My Daddy was sick and of course I was on duty to take care of him. He didn't feel like playing with me.
Here I am making sure that he stays calm and rests while he was watching football on Saturday
"Stay down Daddy, I am here to take care of you. Do you think Mommy could bring us some get well cookies?"" What Daddy, you don't feel like cookies?"Thats ok, I will be happy to eat them for you."

It is a very hard job taking care of sick peoples. I can't wait until Daddy can play with me again. He plays the best games with me. I love my Daddy.
I hope you all had a nice weekend. I am getting very excited for Thanksgiving. It is my favorite meal of the whole year. What is your favorite food on Thanksgiving?? Mine is mashed potatoes...yummm. The Wisconsin Badgers beat Michigan!! Congratulations to Brutus and the Ohio Buckeyes for their great victory!

Hi my pals. I am trying to go to sleep and I am thinking about the things I might dream about. Sometimes I have bad puppy dreams and make woofy sounds and kick my legs(Mommy says). I hope I don't have one of those tonight. I would like to dream of a place where all my doggy pals and all my people pals can live together and no one ever gets sick. We will have such fun, running and playing. In this magic place there will be lots and lots of cheese and no shots and no sickness. I will call this place " Sashacheeseland". Will you come join me there? Free cheese for all! Cheese...zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Here is another little joke I got from another Uncle, I hope it makes you smile.
-The Silent Generation are people born
before 1946.
-The Baby Boomers are people born between 1946 and 1959.
-Generation X are people born between 1960
and 1979.
Generation Y are people born between
1980 and 1995.
Why do we call the last one generation Y?
I did not know, but a cartoonist explains it
eloquently below...I Learned something
new today!

Pet Pride

Please visit Bozo at Pet pride for pictures of pets and pals all over the place.
I am feeling a little dazed here after my Vet Lady ordeal, but even still I agreed to pose for a photo. Well Mommy was holding a piece of cheese out, so that was my focal point.

After my horrible haircut experience, they had the nerve to put a shirt on me. Even though I wasn't feeling well, it only took me 2 minutes to work my way out of it when I got home. Here I am half way off. If you roll around I find it slips right off. licks and sniffs, Sasha

Camera Critters

Please visit Camera Critters Meme to see oodles of fun pictures of all kinds of animals doing all kinds of stuff. Hi my pals. I am feeling better today. I was pretty sick for a couple of days. The Vet Lady said it was a reaction to the shots and also the infection in my system. Well if the shots were gonna make me sick, why did she give em to me?? I don't know about that shot thing anymore. I am better and back to my old sassy self. Here I am feeling down still. Pay no attention to the back round. I am in a room that is being fixed up and changed and all that.
I am trying to gather enough strength to play with my favorite squeaky hot dog
After that I went back to sleep. For the rest of this post I am going to show you a nice walky I took with my Big Sis before the dreaded haircut and "shots". The first one is a picture of the house where the meanest dog alive lives. Her name is Bridget. I would have Big Sis take a picture of her, but I am afraid the camera would explode with her ugliness and melt and dissolve.

Ahhh a lovely morning walky.
Ok, back home. I need to go in and check on Mommy. I can't stand to be away from her for very long. She needs me.
Ok anytime now. My Mom is in there and more important my good girl treat awaits.
Thank you for all of your good wishes, I love you my pals.

I am freezing and naked and I am not feeling well tonight

Hi my pals, well I survived the Vet Lady just barely. Look what she did to me. I am naked, how embarrassing. I am also freezing and I just don't feel right tonight. Since I am also very tired I am adding a few jokes that my Uncle Dennis sent me. I hope they make you smile. Have a good weekend everydog and everyone.

Sasha has been a little under the weather since she got back from the Vet. She did get 2 shots and she has a little infection in the pads of her feet where some hair was matted. She is very quiet, but she is eating and drinking. I am hoping she will be back to normal tomorrow or I will call the Vet back. Please have some good thoughts for her. Thanks Anne

Sasha has some useless trivia for your Wednesday

Hi my pals, I have found my hiding spot, but I am laying low and acting all normal until tomorrow night. I thought we could have some fun, so I was surfing the web and found some useless trivia for you to share. I hope you like it. First here is my friend Ammo in his Halloween costume. Ammo was rescued from a bad home. He is a greyhound, shepherd and I dunno what else mix. He is a sweet boy and very lovey, but he kind of likes to eat the furniture at his house. He is wearing a prison costume for Halloween fun, his new family loves him very much and are very good to him. He has a very good forever home now.

Here I am on Halloween again, now on to the trivia.
On average, dogs have better eyesight than humans, although not as colorful.

The lifespan of a squirrel is about nine years.

Sharks and rays are the only animals known to man that don't get cancer. Scientists believe this has something to do with the fact that they don't have bones, but cartilage.

A group of twelve or more cows is called a flink.

You can tell the sex of a horse by its teeth. Most males have 40, females have 36.

Cats sleep up to eighteen hours a day, but never quite as deep as humans. Instead, they fall asleep quickly and wake up intermittently to check to see if their environment is still safe.

There are more than fifty different kinds of kangaroos

Skunks can accurately spray their smelly fluid as far as ten feet

The pet food company Ralston Purina recently introduced, from its subsidiary Purina Philippines, power chicken feed designed to help roosters build muscles for cockfighting, which is popular in many areas of the world.http://www.faqs.org/abstracts/Business-international/Purina-takes-on-United-Laboratories-to-pump-up-Manilas-battling-birds.html#ixzz0VyNgK3W4

Guinea pigs and rabbits can't sweat.

Cats often rub up against people and furniture to lay their scent and mark their territory. They do it this way, as opposed to the way dogs do it, because they have scent glands in their faces

So to sum it all up. We can outlive squirrels and see better than our peoples, but we can't drive since we don't do the color thing so well. If you have to work out do it with a rabbit or guinea pig and don't tiptoe past a sleeping cat cause they might wake up and rub their faces all over you. It is best to say away from a flink of cows(too big to play with) and skunks in general and I don't think I want to get close enough to a horse to count its teeth. It would be nice if they could figure out why sharks don't get cancer and there a lot of kangaroos out there. But the most important thing of all is DON'T BUY PURINA DOG FOOD, nobody should be encouraging cockfighting I don't care where you live! I hope you can impress your pals with this trivia Wednesday.

I will be in hiding until after Friday, send treats please

Mommy used some very bad words. She said I need a" haircut." I heard her talking to the Vet lady and I know she used the word "shots". I don't remember what that is, but I know it makes me feel funny inside when I hear it, so it can't be good. On Friday, I am going for a nail trim, "shots" and a hair cut, or so she thinks(he-he). I have other plans. Shhhhhhhhhh. Don't worry I have found a good hiding place, I will be fine. What?" Oh no Mommy I am not on the puter right now, go back to watching cooking shows." I look just fine, don't I ??? Even kind of cute and precious???
Well if you agree please tell Mommy, maybe she will change her mind. PLEASE!! I know Bilbo is on my side.

Before I go lets have a little fun, can you think of one word, only one that describes how you feel about grooming. Here is mine: "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO"

The Aftermath

Hi my pals, well another Halloween has come and gone. I am tired from all the excitement so I am posting a few pictures that I hope you enjoy. Mommy and Big Sis gave out over 200 treats and froze their butts off. I mostly stayed in with my Daddy and barked at the intruders taking our candy. My Bid Sis made a really cool pumpkin just for me! Have a good week my pals.

Happy Halloween!!!

Happy Halloween my pals and pals Humans!! Here is how we celebrate, first a little pumpkin display before the big one gets carved.
Here I am posing with my costume. Mommy tricked me and sewed it on to my collar. That way I won't complain because I love going outside, even if it means wearing a costume. I am a princess.

This is my Halloween necklace. I don't mind wearing this one.

Mommy was trying to take pictures of me and I kept moving(giggle) so she couldn't hold the camera and me and ended up getting way too close.
Look at the treats Mommy made for the neighbors, they are soooooooooo yummy. I got to taste a few.
A little better on this one. That mess next to me is where we had some work done on the house and they haven't fixed this yet.
Ok, time for supper, you can take the stupid thing off now. Hello I am hungry.

Ok enough with the pictures, its time to play. Put the flashy beast down Mom!

I wish you all a safe and Happy Halloween. Please watch out for ghosts and goblins and cats and squirrels (except Dory, she is ok). Get lots of treats and don't get scared.
I want to send well wishes to many of my bloggy friends out there. I don't know what is going on out there but there are way too many sick friends right now. Dispatch at Animals That Give Pause gave his Mom a scare, but it turned out not to be too serious and he is getting better. Mango at Mango's Great Adventures has a sore leg, when Mango isn't feeling well it just isn't right throughout dogdom. He is our protector and we need to wish him back to good health. OC atCorgi Country had a little mishap with Sadie at their house and is recovering. Please send them all healing vibes and The Power of the Paw! I hope you all get better and I love you.
Happy Halloween
