I can hear you now!

Hello. How is everyone doing?

It's been such a long time since I blogged. I almost forgot about my following... sorry.

It's been a crazy week. On Halloween I got super sick and mommy had to take me to the vet people. There was something wrong with my ears. I couldn't stop scratching it and sometimes I'd scratch it so hard that it would bleed. No good. Mom was so worried about me. When I went to the nice vet lady, she wanted to check my ears. But they hurt so bad that I just ran under mommy's legs and hid. With a little bit of cuddling from mommy I was able to settle down and they were able to get a sample of the gooey stuff from my ear. A few minutes later, the vet lady came back and told mommy that I had some weird bacteria in my ear. I could see the look of sadness in mommy's face when they told her it was hard to treat. I don't want mommy to be sad.

They ended up giving me three different medications for my ears. It's been over a week now and I think it's helping. I don't feel the gooey stuff coming out of my ears anything. Mommy was such a wonderful mommy too. Every night after I would take the medicine, I would feel all funny and hear weird things so I would bark. She would come out to the living room and sleep on the couch with me and we'd cuddle all night. It felt good to be comforted by her. I heard daddy say to mommy that he thinks I am bluffing and only doing it for attention but that's not true at all. I just wanted to tell mommy that I appreciate her. I love her with all my heart.

Ma rug

Wassup ma peeps. How y'all doin'? Xanza here.

First of all, ide like to give a big shout out to my cuz in STL. I wanna wish him a be-lated 2nd birthday. He turned the BIG 2 on January 27th. I still can't believe that dawg is 2...seems like just yesterday he was a young pupdawg. I heard from mom that Xane has become more mature...I don't even know what that means...it's a big fancy wurd. Me thinks it is somethin about him being around cow shiat tho. Mom says I gotta be mature too...um...hellz no. I ain't rollin' round in that stuff. Mom must be crazy in da head or somethang.

Oh guess what...I got some new improvements to ma crib. I gots me a new rug. When I was a young pupdawg and mom useta put the dog bed in my crate, I'd chew it up all good. But then came to realise, I ain't gettin' a new one. I didn't understand at all. Chew my rawhide - get a new one, destroy my toys - get new toys. But no new bed ever came...wassup with dat?! I didn't mind it so much in the daytime but at nights it would get awefully cold on my bare plastic in ma crate. Sometimes, do I dare say it...I'd wish that Bliz was sharin' the crate with me instead of Xavier. That dawg is like a big warm heated pillow.

Well, turns out a few weeks ago, mom surprised this dawg. She let me outside to do ma bizness and when I came in and went to ma crate, I felt the most amazing thing beneath ma pawz. It was soft, and warm and fluffy. Mom had gotten me a brown rug for my crate!!! I was so happy that I rolled around on my back for hours that night. I didn't wanna leave the crate even tho the door was open. Sometimes, when I'd take a break to get some water, I'd see Bliz go in ma crate and chill. I think he's still in shock that mom gots me something. ROFL.

I know that ma probably thinks ima gonna destroy it but I aint. This was the best gift ever and I love ma mom for thinkin' of me. And dad has even been nice to me too. He says he likes me now cuz I'm "metal" but that's anotha story.

Peace out ma peeps!

Not the Face!

Hello there! Last week we celebrated Thanksgiving. It was so much fun because Cousin Xane, Second Mom Mandy and Uncle LM came to visit from Saint Louis. It seemed like forever since I saw Xane. He was so much more mature and playful. He didn't chase me around all the time like he did in Saint Louis so that was good. I actually got a chance to rest in peace.

I think Xanza had some issues with him though. Xanza saw Mommy putting Xane's crate in the kitchen where his normally is and Xanza got pissed. He kept saying how it wasn't fair for him to sleep outside on the porch while Xane was all warm and cozy inside. He kept saying how Xane was way more bad than him. It was kinda funny! I was thinking, "How can any dog be worse that Xanza". I know, I am mean. LOL

To tell ya the truth, I sorta felt a little bit bad for Xanza. Well almost!

After a few squabbles back and forth outside, him and Xane called a truce. They realized that it was no use fighting and decided to be buds and throw their negative feelings under the bridge.

And guess what...Xanza taught Xane how to go after me and bite my face! I can't believe it - I go from being 3rd dog in the house to 4th! Can you believe it?! Ah well, it doesn't matter, I'm a lover - not a fighter.

End of Summer

Good evening. I apologize for not being diligent with my writing. I've been enjoying these last beautiful summer days. Pretty soon, winter will be here and I will be stuck indoors with cabin fever. I don't like winter very much. I don't get to go outside and play fetch with Master Lors, or hang out with Master Stan when he's doing yard work or grilling. Luckily, Master Lors has been playing fetch with me several times a week so I am in tip top shape going into the winter.

Xanza has even been quite nice lately too. I think he's finally understanding what it takes to be a German Shepard. He has a long way to go, but I believe he's on the right track to being a good, loyal and dependable dog. As a result of his good behavior, he has been getting a lot more freedom while in the house. That is a good sigh. It means that the Masters are beginnng to trust him. He's still not allowed to have free reign of the house while they are out, like me...but that will come in time.

Oh, I almost forgot, a few weeks ago I celebrated my 7th birthday. It was wonderful. Master Lors baked me the most delicious cake I have ever tasted. It was called Peanut Butter Delight, I believe. And I received lots of hugs and kisses from Master Lors. She smothers me so but I do not mind. It makes her happy and that makes me happy.

Getting back Xavier's mojo

Xanza here! How y'all doing? Long time huh?

Well, not much new here. It's Summer so I've been chillin' out in the backyard a lot. Been running and getting into shape. I'm so ripped right now - it's awesome. Oh my God! I'm in a lot better shape than Xavier or Bliz who sit around all day. Even the vet lady told me that I was ripped when I went for my yearly check-up. She was all feeling me all over and gliding her fingers through my fur....oooh that felt so good. I think she has the hots for me! She wants some Xanza lovin'...oh yeah. I think she's cute and all but she ain't my type. I like my biotches with 4 legs.

So, made a friend too. The neighbor at the back of us got a chocolate lab. He's just a young guy but we've been playing and running with eachother along the fence. I know the Humans don't like that very much because the grass gets all torn up but I can't help myself. I feel the need...the need too...um...what was I sayin'?

Oh yeah..next week is Xavier's birthday. He's gonna be the big 7! OMG - that's SO old LOL. But, I feel kinda bad for the guy. He's been backing off at being the alpha dog. He's been letting me have his ball and doesn't care, he's been backin' off on squabbles and even backing off when I growl at him when we both get water.

Don't get me wrong -- I wanna be top dog in dis house but I ain't gonna take it like that. I still gots lots to learn from him so he can't wimp out now. I gotta figure out a way to get him his mojo back. I may not be as smart as him and we may fight a lot but he's my big bro. He's so much better that that brown-nosin'-sissy Bliz!

OMG -- It's my Birthday

Xanza here! Holy crap, can you believe it...today is my birthday! I'm am 5 years young today! Woot woot! I didn't even remember until Mom told me this mornin' and gave me a great big hug. Thx Mom -- luv ya too. You're the only one who remembered. Just for you, I won't beat up Bliz today.

Oh, and Mom said she's gonna bring home an extra special surprise for me today since it's ma special day. I can't wait! Ima gonna make Bliz and Xavier mad as hell. I wonder what she will bring me. I ain't picky but I hope it's something to eat. Like maybe a nice juicy rabbit or maybe a big cake or something. That'd rock! If it's a cake, Ima gonna have to make a wish I guess. I always see the Humans do it. When it's one of their birthdays, they get a cake, light it on fire, close their eyes to make a wish and then blow out the fire again. Kinda silly, if you ask me. I wonder what I should wish for... whatever it is, I can't tell you cuz I heard that it ain't gonna come true.

I am just hoping that Mom doesn't put me on some crazy costume or make me wear some funky hat.

Saint Louis Road Trip

Hello there! I apologize for not writing sooner about my wonderful road trip to Saint Louis. It's been so hot and humid lately and I didn't feel much like blogging.

My trip was simply wonderful. Mommy, Daddy, Grandma Rita and I packed up all our things the Friday before the 4th of July and took a very very long road trip. The trip was about 9 hours long but I sleep most of the way. Every now and again, I would pop my head up and ask Mommy if we were there yet -- but the answer was always, "No".

We finally reached Saint Louis at about 3:00 PM and boy was I happy! I met my cousin Xane for the very first time! Mommy had me pick out a nice new toy to bring for Xane too. He seemed to really like it.

Xane was so energic that I honestly felt like an old dog. Was I ever that hyper? Everywhere I would go, he would follow me. After a couple hours of playing with him, I just wanted to take a nap, but he wouldn't leave me alone...he wanted to play and play. I don't think he's quite use to other doggies being in his home. Daddy even tried to teach Xane some commands. Daddy would have me do the commands first to show Xane and then try it with him next. Daddy even gave him some of my treats but I didn't mind. It got Xane off my back for a little while :-)

Later that evening, Mommy, Daddy, Aunty Mandy and Uncle Marcus all went out to dinner. Grandma Rita stayed home and dogsat us. I love when Grandma watches us...she spoils us so. She plays with us and gives us tasty human food to try. Mommy gets mad at this though - she doesn't want me to get sick from eating foods that I am not use to.

Xane and I just chilled and talked for hours. We got along so well and had a lot in common. I was telling him that he should come to Minnesota and he'd get to meet and play with Xavier and Xanza. He said he'd try and convince his 'rents. I think the reason why we got along so well is because he reminded me to Xanza minus the beating me up part.

After all the humans got back from dinner, we all just relaxed and talked. Mommy and Aunty Mandy played Scrabble while Uncle Marcus and Daddy watched television before we all went to bed and prepared for the 4th of July get-together.

Who Let the Dog Out?

Xanza here! OMG, lemme tell ya about what happened a couple days ago.
I gots me in some trouble.

So, Mommy let me outside to do ma bizness when she got home from work right. Well, that stupid little yippy dog next door started mouthin' off to me yet again. I don't even know what type of dog he is but he's awfully small. I don't even consider him a real dog -- he's so puny. Heck, any dog less that 30 pounds is not a REAL dog. That's just my 1 cents.

His Master is cool though...his name is Carl but damn... that dog I can't stand. Every single day, he comes up to the fence and starts talkin' crap to me. He's always sayin' how he can take me, or how he can own me, or how I am no match for him, or how German Shepards sux, or how I have no cajones. Tell me -- what the hell is cajones?! Is that like some Cajun food or sumtin? If it is, I can go for sum of dat.

Well, that dog pisses me off so much that I start barkin' at him (which usually gets the Humans upset at me). And to make matters worse, he always be laughin' at me that I am behind the fence and can't get out. He comes right up the the fence and taunts me! OMG - you don't know how much that pisses me off.

Well a couple days ago he was at it again! He started spewin' stuff about Mom. He started tellin' these aweful "Yo Momma" jokes. I couldn't take it anymore. He wasn't gonna disrespect the only person in this whole wide world that loved me. So, I found a way to get under the fence. Was seriously going off some high adrenalan and I went after him at full speed. OMG...it was so friggin' funny. He got SO scared that he froze for a second then ran straight into his house. He never even came back out.

His Master, Carl, started rollin'. But then Carl went to go get Mom to let her know that I was out of backyard and running around the street. When she opened the door and saw me outside, she did not have a happy face. She quickly called me and I ran into the house and in my crate.

Even though, she was mad at me for a bit, I don't regret it. All in a days work if I scared that lil dog shiatless.

Kick Boxing Bliz

Boy have things been busy around the house! Both Mommy and Daddy started taking this kick boxing class a few weeks ago. They seem to be enjoying it a lot, although, they often have very sore muscles the day after. That's no fun at all. Been there, done that while chasing many a rabbit in the backyard.

I was thinking that it would be cool to join that class too! But unfortunately, they don't allow doggies. Places discriminate SO much against dogs. It's so not fair! Now I know how women felt when they couldn't have the same rights as men and Blacks not being able to do same things as Whites. More people should allow doggies to go into Human places

But, as I was saying, it would be fun to take kick boxing with Mommy and Daddy. I can learn how to be strong and defend myself. And anytime Xanza tries to be a bully and beat up on me, I can give him a great jab or hook in the face and make him see birdies. Oooh, that would be SO much fun. Then, maybe he'll give me some respect.

I think Xanza is probably mad at me because Mommy decided to take me with her on a road trip to Saint Louis. Mommy, Daddy, Grandma Rita and I are all going to visit Aunty Mandy & Uncle Marcus. I simple can't wait to meet my cousin, Xane. I hope he likes me. I hear he's got lots of energy like me so I'm sure we will spend hours and hours playing together. Mommy said that sometimes Xane can be quite naughty though and that I should teach him some good manners while I am there. I must remember to do that because, I was quite naughtly myself in my youth. Sure I had a cute face, but I was bad to the bone.

Anyways, I will surely write and let you all know how fabulous my trip is. I'm so excited! This will be my 2nd official road trip to another state. I went to Chicago a few years ago and that was loads of fun. I'm sure Saint Louis will be even better! STL here comes The Bliz!

Playing fetch

I just wanted to give thanks to my Mom. Even though she's been occupied with many errands and projects lately, she still finds time in her very busy day to spend time with me. On her lunch breaks from work, she sometimes drives home to eat lunch and spend some time with me. She would eat her sandwich quickly and then she would take my favorite red kong ball in the backyard and we would play fetch. Also, in the afternoons, even though she's super tired, she'd take a few minutes to play fetch again. I love her and just wanted to thank her. It's only a few minutes but it means the worlds to me. I think that everyone should take a few minutes of their day to do something nice...even when things can seem overwhelming.
