Dogs Need Vacations TOO!! 'Ruff Ruff'

I sit at home day in day out waiting anxiously for my Mama to come home, blubber me and feed me to my heart's content. Okay, maybe that last part doesn't happen. I freely admit that I'm hooked on a variety of the healthiest dog biscuits and treats known to man or canine-kind.

If Mama wouldn't buy such lip-smacking treats...'looks around worried'...on second thought I better not post that. I might end up with dried up tree bark or those freaky little people crackers that resemble the oddest miniature version of professional people in society from postal workers to policemen.

'Shakes head'

Anyway back to my point for this post. I need a vacation. I want a vacation. I deserve a vacation!. Now anyone got any ideas where a sassy little senior pup like myself can go and have a good time?

The movie set of Scooby Doo crossed my mind but I'm fairly certain that's in make-believe land. Is that in Florida?

I think Mama really wants to go to Pigeon Forge, TN although I'm puzzled why she'd want to see a bunch of pigeons flying around, but I'll go along for the ride cause it makes her happy to include me.

And don't get me started on the lack of pet hotels. Yeah, there are some but not nearly enough as there should be.

HEY, narrow-minded, puppy haters - we're people too! If we are injured do we not bleed? Give us more accommodations as we travel with our loving owners that treat us as the people we are!

Yes, I'm bilingual although not nearly as proficient in speaking as I am in typing. I can curse and bark on a dime!

So there, pups need breaks too!

I shall save my rant for another post! All this bitching has made me tired.

My Cough Has Improved & So Has Mama's Attitude

Okay, so I'm here again. I've been accused of taking the limelight from my Mama, but I don't think that's the case. I'm just exceptionally gifted that way.

Since most of you don't know who I am and the greatness I'm capable of having, let me show you an introduction through my adorable photos.

Then you can see for yourself what a special little senior pup I really am.

I love my toy collection, probably more than most doggies. I can't help it. I guess it's part of my fleece fetish. I have millions of stuffed animals that on occasion I treat as if they were my own puppies. Mama looks at me strange when I do that, but then she smiles and chuckles and I know all is right with the world.

My valentine pooch named Pinky

My Lobster named Lobby

My fleece lamb named Lil' Lamby


I'm a tired little toot now. Mama was up at 5 a.m. taking this picture of me. Something about her thinking it was just too darn adorable that I was hugging the side of the bed. She loves me. What can I say?

WooHoo My First Follower! Does that equate with stalking?

I see Chrissy, Mama's friend. Thanks for dropping by. Pssst, got any treats? Cause Mama's being a tad stingy this afternoon, ahem. It will be in your best interest to pamper me, just saying. Course pampering is the name of the game.

It's a bitch to have Chronic Bronchitis!

Hello fellow canine folk and their dedicated owners. Allow me to introduce myself, 'cough, cough.'

My name's Shelby and I've been the love of my Mama's life for over 15 years. Lately I've been fighting off the aggravating effects of Bronchitis. I cough here. I cough there. I keep Mama up at night and I don't like it. Subsequently, she doesn't like it either but she loves me and understands.

Any doggie advice for a little scrappy 8lb. doxie would be lovely to have. I'm appealing to the canine in all of us. Yes I'm convinced that true animal lovers are part canine too!

'Looks around, feeling rather right at home.'

Cool, I'm liking this booger thing, errrr, I mean blogger thing. I think I'll be content to just sit here and wait on my fellow doggies to converse with me.

Ohhhh, big words for such a little pup. Won't Mama be so proud?!

Slobbers n' licks,
