We'll miss you Desiree!

Hello my friends,
I wanted to take the time out to pay tribute my kitty. My kitty Desiree passed away yesterday morning. She was about 12 yrs old mom isn't exactly sure since she rescued her over 10 yrs ago from the local SPCA. Mom got woken up by grandma to come down and say goodbye so mom stayed in the room with her until she went to the bridge.Desiree was in mommy's arms when she crossed over with mommy telling her goodbye and everything else. Mom and grandma cried when she passed away. Talk about a rough couple of months for my family.
Mom said that 10 yrs ago there was a house in her area that had over 100 cats in a one room home and they had to find homes for all these cats. Well her and grandpa went to the SPCA and walked around and went to this crate where my kitty was and that my kitty walked up to the door and meowed at them. So mom said that was it she was going home with them. So mom and grandma took her to the vet Wednesday morning to get her checked out because they knew something wasn't right with her. Well I guess my Desiree just wasn't feeling well enough. Desiree I'm going to miss you and wish you could have stayed around because I had fun playing with you. Mommy hasn't stopped crying in her sleep and said she wasn't ready for you to go. So she sent you to the Rainbow Bridge and will be lighting a candle for you on Monday. She asked me to type in here that she misses you and hopes to see you soon enough at the bridge. We miss you Desiree and love you lots!

Merry Christmas!!!

Wow did I get the ultimate Christmas gift last night! No not another sibling thank God. My dad didn't have to work last night so I've got him for the next 3 nights including last night. Oh man what more could a pup ask for? Oh I know a trip to the ball park so I can run like the wind which I got this morning. My mom, dad, brother and I all took a trip to the ball park so Romeo and I could run and run and run. This guy was there with his son and they had this things that looked like little cars chasing Romeo and I. My parents thought it was funny. Not so much if you asked Romeo or me. I'm telling you friends my folks have a sick sense of humor. Little did that guy know though that if he let the "toys" get near me enough I would have chew 'em up. So anyways mom and dad didn't get me or Romeo anything because they weren't sure what to get. That's ok mom mentioned hitting the clearance racks tomorrow. I really don't mind I'm just happy I have my three humans home with me for the holidays.
Well folks have a great holiday with your loved ones. Merry Christmas!

Christmas hugs,

Ozzy

Hello my friends,
I wanted to take time out of my busy schedule to say Happy Howlidays. I hope you all get exactly what you've asked for and that you enjoy all the time home with your loved ones. I know I will. Mom is done with this semester and won't go back until the start of the new year so I'm going to be hogging up as much of her time as possible. Mom had some fun with that god awful camera of hers and has some new pictures for me to share with you all. There is one of my brother and me and then of course of just me. I must say we are some scruffy looking handsome pups. My mom says that if the weather holds up we should be having some fun this next week. Oh man it better be some nice weather. I don't care about the cold but NO RAIN!














I can't believe my mother forced me to put on those embarassing antlers. Well my friends I'm gonna go I'm wasting precious time on here so sorry if that sounded rude. Take care and enjoy your Christmas dinner and presents.


Merry Christmas,
Ozzy and my mom

I've been Christmas Tagged!

I've been tagged by Mackie in a new Christmas game. Here are the rules of the game:The player of this game starts with "3 things he/she would love to get for Christmas" and also has to list "3 things he/she definitely does not want to get for Christmas". Then he/she tags 5 friends and list their names. The ones who get tagged need to write on their blogs about their Christmas wishes, as well as state this rule clearly, then tag 5 more victims. And the one who tags need to leave a comment that says "you've been Christmas tagged!" in their comments and tell them to read your blog.So here goes- Three things I would love to get for Christmas...hmmnnn,
1. Some new toys for me to play with.
2. An end to animal abuse.
3. A big backyard that I can run around loose in.

3 things I don't want for Christmas
1. No more new brothers or sisters.
2. Another bath or trip to the groomers.

Well this is me and Romeo hanging out one night this past week. Mom was wondering where we were and was shocked to see us "behaving". Well of course we were behaving we were discussing who got socky this time.
We're totally curious as to where this snow is supposed to be. Mom says every other day they're talking about snow but still nada. Well as cold as it is outside I think I might appreciate a little bit of snow to play in. I heard mom and dad talking about this weekend if there is no snow going for a long cold walk in the woods. I think that might work for me. Not my car sick brother though. Mom's had enough of the pukey boy. LOL I told him our mom does not like cleaning up puke but being the awesome woman that she is she is learning to just grin and bear it. I've told my brother the car rides are usually great things we end up going somewhere totally fun and get things out of it. But oh no not the pukey boy. Total whimp I tell ya.
So I should have a good weekend I got mom and dad and my grandma home with me oh yeah and my brother. Oh we did go and see our birth parents last weekend and let me tell you I am soo glad I'm living where I'm living my father and mother both decided to fight with me and Romeo. Geesh don't they know that little guy is timid? I politely ahem told him to bug off. I don't like to be humped or fought with. Thank goodness my mom took us out of there quick as can be. So mom bought us both some antlers and I hear rumors that we'll be getting pictures taken with them on. I refuse this but I know my mother will force me into doing this. So expect pictures. Mom has learned my password and will post them with or without my permission.
They do need to go get some new batteries for my camera though so I can share pictures of our walk this weekend.
Well folks I'm going to get moving dad just got in and wants to play. I must appease the man or will he whine like my brother. Geesh the things I do for my parents. LOL

Wirey hugs,
Ozzy

Hey friends,
I know it's been a little while since I wrote on here but mom and I have been busy playing with my new brother. Man this kid can play right along with me. I thought I was a hard player. It must be in the genes. Mom says we seem to be getting along pretty good. I would like to think so.
Grandma left us alone together today and he enjoyed mom's shoe. I on the other hand did nothing but lay in bed with dad(mom says yeah right). Dad did take some pictures over the weekend of us hanging out. I wanted to show us off a bit so I have included them in this posting. Congrats to my pal Bussie for Awesome Blog of the Month. That's terrierific my friend. Happy Belated Birthday to sweet Sunshade. I hope you had a terrierific day and got loads of presents which it seems you did.
Well I'm gonna get moving I wanna go play some more. Everybody enjoy your day. I know I will.

Wirey hugs,

Happy Thanksgiving

Hey guys!
Happy Thanksgiving Day! Mom, Me and Romeo have sent you all a card courtesy of my blog page.
http://www.hallmark.com/ECardWeb/ECV.jsp?a=0288572113123M147393693Y&product_id=
I have lots to be thankful for. First off I'm thankful for my humans. Mom, Dad and Grandma are the best family a pup can ever get. Then there is my brother Romeo we might have our differences but we sure do know how to play together and that's a good thing in my book. I am thankful for all of my internet pals. You guys are the best a pup could ask for. I am also thankful for that turkey dinner grandma is cooking for all of us downstairs. Boy does that smell yummy to my tummy. She even said we were getting a small plate. Woohoo! Now we're talking.
I am thankful for all of those toys I get to play with. I'm even grateful for the kitty for giving me something to chase. I'm not thankful for the reprimand I get for chasing her though.
Hope you all have a great Turkey Day. I know we will at our house.

Wirey Turkey Day Hugs,
Ozzy & Romeo & Mommy
(figured I'd be nice on the holiday & include Romeo)

Well I've had quite the weekend

















Well first let me thank EVERYONE for their kind birthday wishes. My day was a blast. Mom got home from school made me dinner of burger and carrots. She then went out without me yep that's right I'm not too happy about that. BUT she did bring me home some Coldstone Creamery Peanut Butter Ice Cream with peanut butter thrown in extra. Talk about a yummy birthday treat. I love peanut butter ice cream with extra sauce in it.

Well Grandma made me this cool birthday bandana so I got to put it on. Doesn't it look cool? I thought so.
So then Mom, Dad and Grandma kept talking about how I'd feel about having company and I'm all thinking umm what? Well Dad then comes out with do you want a brother or friend Ozzy? I'm really looking at my father wondering what he's on. I don't have a brother or a sister just that damn cat. Well Saturday morning comes around and I get this announcement from mom "Oz your brother will be here shortly". I'm thinking HUH? So mom goes outside and is walking around with a look alike of me only smaller. So I'm barking like a fiend wondering what is this in my yard near my mom. The horror of it all she brings him in MY house. Well Mom then tells me he'll be living with us if we can get along well enough. Umm did anyone ask me?
Well the little guy whom they've named Romeo has issues and seems to like to pick fights with me. We've had a couple of doozies. But for the most part this guy named Romeo is not too bad. He's actually my biological brother from a litter after mine. Mom felt bad for him and figured she'd try it out with us and see how it worked. Dad keeps saying Happy Birthday buddy you got a play mate. Next time my dear parents ask me first. Mom and Grandma are hoping we'll get along just fine and Grandma says so far so good we just gotta get adjusted to each other.
Here is a picture of the little guy. Tell me whatcha think? The second picture is him and me outside playing. Mom wanted proof that we do get along well.
This is Romeo.
Oh and then there's the picture of us playing tug of war.
Wow if anything we are a cute pair of
brothers if I do say so myself.

Friday, November 17, 2006

They say it's my birthday!

Oh my goodness I'm a year old today! Woohoo!
Happy Birthday to me
Happy Birthday to me
Happy Birthday dear Ozzy
Happy Birthday to me!
Thanks Fee for giving me that idea. I had to copy you on that one!

Wirey birthday hugs,
Ozzy the one year old!

Sunday, November 12, 2006

Wow I haven't wrote in here in quite a long time. I would like to appologize. I just haven't had time lately. Mom's been busy studying for her mid-terms and of course that means I'm stuck studying too. Dad's been put back on his old shift which almost sent mom into a tizzy. That is until she found out dad had gotten a promotion. Now mom says it's not official yet but they are going to be making my dad supervisor of his shift for Coke. Wow my dad's an awesome guy. Mom and Grandma says that's terrierific. Hey if it means no less time for the Ozman than I'm happy for him. Well mom says the countdown begins. Yep that's right folks I will be the big ONE year old on November 17. Now grandma does have a special scarf for the special birthday boy so therefore I will be styling on my big day. I don't know about any birthday party or anything like that but hey so long as I get a special dinner I'm a happy pup. Hey Fee since you got gipped for your birthday do you wanna come celebrate with me? Mom says it's cool with her.
Oh more parent news to report. Mom got most of her grades for school and she says it's all a's Ozzy ALL A's! I think that's good she did a little dance after that. Mom found out that my biological parents are moving to another state soon. I'd say I miss them but I haven't seen them since mom picked me up and brought me to my new home. I do wish them well and hope they enjoy their new home!
Dad gave me a special spoiled treat earlier today he gave me one of his old socks. Oh how lucky can one guy be? I tell you there is nothing like going for a walk with the parents and coming home and hearing "hear Oz have a sock". Do they know that was just the best thing going for me? I tell ya you can have your fancy schmany toys you give me one of dads smelly socks and I'm going crazy! Did I tell you guys I finally have become a terrier? Oh yeah that's right I did. I have killed my first mole. I have heard from my friends Tilly and Robbie that they do that quite regularly if their mum isn't looking and well I had to try it out. Now I am known in the house as Oz the mole hunter. I tell ya I think they're teasing me about that I really do but I did it I killed a mole and then poof mom scooped it up and put it in the garbage on me. I just stared in pure awe and amazement. I wouldn't throw out something she killed. Nope I sure wouldn't. That my friends was the worst part of it all. Well I'm gonna end this entry a bit quickly and get back to my sock before they take that away from me. Hope everyone out there is doing well and enjoying their weekend I know I did.
Take care and be good. Well as good as you want.

Wirey hugs,
Ozzy

Just a Saturday

Hello All,
I just wanted to say thank you to all that sent their condolences that meant alot to us here in the house.
Well today wasn't such a hot day weather wise we had the most awful rain and wind. But I did have a bonus to my day. My Aunt Nancy stopped by to help Grandma clean the house up and go through some papers of great Grandma's. Oh what fun we all had cleaning out the closet and sweeping! I was of course the ever present assitant showing Grandma how to sweep the floor. Man dull as that might sound I got to explore places in that room I never knew existed and I got to play my favorite game how to attack that dust mop! Too much fun.
Then after dad went to work. Mom came home and announced we were off to Petco! Oh man how lucky could I be today? I tell you playing with my Aunt and Grandma and then off to Petco. Grandma went with us so we got to really do some browsing. So we went to the collar and leash aisle and mom and grandma both made me try on new collars. I got a cool looking striped one that is a teal blue with different colors mixed in. I got the leash to go with it. Then it was off to the bone aisle where I got a nice new smoke flavor bone which I have yet to be given. And then they saved the best for last! The TOY aisles! Well I came home with a new rubber bone for me to chew my happy little puppy heart out. Mom got me the coolest new rubber ball whenever I shake it or it moves it makes a funny sound! Oh my happy heart! I am in love with this new giggly wiggly ball. I can't believe I found something that makes noises and that I've been allowed to play with longer than a half hour. I heard a rumor that tomorrow if it doesn't rain we might even go for a walk with my buddy Punto. If not depending on the wind if not it's off to Vassar Farms for a nice long walk also. Mom says tomorrow afternoon and night she'll be busy studying for her midterms. So she won't be able to play with me too much. Yeah well if that's the case I better get a good walk in sometime. I wanted to say congrats to my buddy Axel and his win on awesome blog of the month award. That is too cool for words my friend! Oh and did anyone notice the St Louis Cardinals won? I bet Gus's dad is happier than words could express. So I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. I'll post pictures of my new favorite toy and collar as soon as possible.

Take care!

Wirey hugs,
Ozzy

Sad day for a pup

Hello all,
I just wanted to write a short post tonight since I haven't been online for quite a few days. First I wanted to say once more thank you for the well wishes.
Sadly enough on Friday night my great grandma passed away. Mommy told me Saturday morning after I stole great grandma's shoe in protest of her still not being home to play and love me. She told me that she was in heaven with our dog Rascal and g.grandma's cat. I miss her very much everyday and steal her shoe every chance I can get to chew on it. Mommy's been crying a bit so I've taken on the very responsible task of making her smile and laugh at me.
That did work and for a nice reward I got to go for a long long walk with my mom and dad. Oh what fun!
Mommy told me cousin Kai and Teresa's wedding was superb and such fun! I'm so glad. I did hear they had a picture of my cousin Moto and mom said she was a pretty girl. Mom took lots of pictures and of course not alot came out. She does have one she is very proud of ok well two actually. One of her and grandma and one of her and her cousins. I was so envious that they went while I was crated for fear that I might chew away and tantrum up the whole house. Oh how right they were. Mom said it was ok if I included a picture from the wedding. So here's a picture of my mom and her mom.

So I have to sign off now because mom says it's bed time and she's probably right. Geesh I hate to admit that. Take care all and have a good week.

Wirey hugs,
Ozzy

Thought I'd share some photos

Well Mom's been having a good laugh at my expense with the camera and wanted to share my photos with all who will laugh. I'm game so long as she's not upset over grandma. Mom thought she'd get a good laugh off of me and my Halloween bandana. Well she took this picture after making me look like an old lady. I coulda bit her I really coulda.But again it made her and actually grandma laugh at me. Can ya tell I am not a happy puppy?
So then I came up with an idea of keeping my germs away from great grandma. What if I did this? See my mouth is covered and no germies can get out and harm her or the other patients in the hospital. Well mom gave me a bath today and brushed me down with the furminator. The bath sure felt good today. The brushing of course felt good. Mom then broke down from the stress and does what she does best. . . COOK! Yum we had stew today and spaghetti and meatballs for dinner last night. I am a truly spoiled pup. I heard mom talking about making an apple pie tomorrow after school and some chicken and dumplings. Wow stress brings out the good in my mom. hehehe!So mom's going to school tomorrow which is fine I guess. I think personally she should spend some more time with me but I understand school is important. She did find a new place to take me for long walks at this place called Vassar Farms which is right up the road from our house. So maybe next weekend before cousin Kai's wedding her and dad could take me?! Crossing my fingers now. Who could resist a face like this?
(inspired by my friend miss sunshade) Well I'm gonna get going and go for a quick walk with mom. Take care all and give me a little while to add all of my friends to my page. I'm just growing used to Blogger Beta and boy do I like it so far! Thanks again for all the well wishes.Hope everyone has a great week and you are all doing well. Oh congrats to Opy's mom for getting herself a better job that makes her happy. Mommy says it sounds like a good thing. I concur since it means more time home with Opy and Charlie. So enjoy the fall weather and the fall leaves. I know I will be!

Wirey hugs,Ozzy

Just an update and thank you

Wow all the well wishes for my grandma. I am deeply touched and so is mom and grandma. Great Grandma is doing a bit better. The last two days have been a bit touch and go. Of course though she wants to see yours truly but mom doesn't think the hospital would let me in. Even though she'd diaper me to make sure I don't have any accidents. So when she goes into the nursing home even if it is for rehab mom says she'll purchase some diapers for the first few visits for sanitary reasons and then poof I'm gonna go go go to see my grams. The only good thing about great grandma being sick is that mom and grandma have been home the last 2 nights so I get company except when they are at the hospital. I still think I should be allowed in there she is my grams you know!So I just wanted to say thank you to all of my friends for the well wishes on my grams. When she's feeling more up to it I will let her know all the love and licks she's gotten from all of my friends.Mom mentioned something about being stressed and having the cooking bug. Dad says that's usually a good thing and since he said she mentioned stew and chicken and dumplings I know I'll be getting some! Dinner last night was yummy too. Boy am I a lucky pup! I am sorry I haven't had any pictures lately. In due time. I promise. Hope everyone has a good weekend I'll be trying to find something to do with myself. Take care and enjoy the beautiful fall weather.Wirey hugs,Ozzy

Hi guys!
It's good to see everyone had a great time at the Montgomery County show on Sunday. I wish I could have gone but my Great Grandma is in the hospital and wasn't doing so hot this weekend. Thankfully according to my mommy she's doing a bit better. They are talking about putting her in a nursing home for some rehab so that's a good thing.
So Saturday mom and dad and I went apple picking at Wilklow Orchards where mom has gone since she was a kid. That was a fun time! I got to munch on some apples and then mom let me go in the cold stream. I got to see a billy goat and some chickens. Mom says I'm not allowed near the chickens since she's not sure how I'd react to them. Mmm tasty sounding to me if I do say so myself. Then Sunday was the big day we went to do our usual walk with my friends. I got to make a new friend an older girl named Daisy. She had some issues as most always schnauzers do where I'm concerned since they always don't seem to like me. I must have Schnauzer Cooties LOL. I got to hang out with my buddy Punto the German Shepard. Oh he is totally cool in my book he's such a big guy and he is always showing me cool spots to sniff. Mom says I'm in idol worship with him and you know she might just be right. I followed him EVERYWHERE I could that is since he was allowed to go off leash and alas I am never allowed to do so. Mom says she'll be off to the hospital tonight to go visit grandma. I have to remind her to give her a kiss just from me. Well I'm off to go get Grandma and give her hand gardening. Take care all!

Wirey hugs,
Ozzy

Tuesday, October 03, 2006

Wow I can't believe it is already October. Time sure flies when you're having fun I guess. Mom told me that I have a little over a month to go until my first birthday. Oh boy presents and cake! Geesh I'm gonna count down them days now that I know this.
Mom says she can't believe she's getting tests again at school. She said she just remembered why she didn't like school. Tests and math. My poor Mom. Well my great grandma is home from a week long visit in the hospital. No need to worry she wasn't feeling well and she went away on a little vacation as she calls it. Man she's a funny funny lady. Mom showed her where my treats are downstairs for her to give me. Oh mom do I love you for that one! My Aunt Nancy and my Uncle Mike stopped by tonight. They had to make sure g.Grandma was home ok. So of course they had to spend time with me. I'm happy to report it was a nice weekend minus mom falling on her butt going off the porch. Oh how funny that was. She took that step off and boom on her bum she went. Oh sorry mom but you even laughed. Oh I did get to help my grandmother garden and plant her bulbs. That was a good thing because I did get to help her dig. Which I am pretty well trained at doing. If I do say so myself. I don't think I have much more to write about so I'm going to go sign off and help mom practice her human body notes so that she can ace this test tomorrow.
Have a good night all and a good day. I'll talk to you all soon.

Wirey hugs,
Ozzy

I've been stuck in the house the last few days as mom has been busy with school and dad works at night so sleep is important for him during the day. I do get my time with grandma but she doesn't play like mom and dad do. So yesterday was dad's day off so we got to spend the day together. We ended up going to Petco to get my nails clipped because him and mom don't like doing that. I then got to browse around with dad and show him all of the stuff I wanted. I ended up coming home with some yummy biscuits and a few greenies. We then met up with mom for lunch which was a yummy Burger King cheeseburger. Oh how delicious a treat that was. We then went home played at the park for a little while and then oh the joy we went and picked mom up from school. So then tonight mom got home from running errands for school and she popped me in the SUV and off we went. Oh to my surprise we ended up at my favorite park. Well we even ran into my friend Neela the greyhound. Well Neela's mom asked if we were going to go play in the ball fields and mom said yes it was her treat for me being a good boy! So Neela and I were unleashed and off she took. Man that girl can run. I ran after her barking at her to wait for me but she didn't listen. Our moms then decided we needed something to drink after all that running and boy were they right. Next thing you know this cool Doberman Pinscher shows up by the name of Conan and oh even more fun! We all got to play and run and I even got to play tug of war with my beloved frisbee. Well we did some more running and playing when our parents decided it was time for us to go home. Wow I haven't played that hard since gee I can't remember. So it's dark out by now and mom is looking around for my frisbee. Well she left without finding it I can't believe her. But I do understand it's hard to see out there. So now I'm back here enjoying the start to what just might a terrierific weekend. Enjoy yourselves my friends. Oh congrats to my girls Fee and Sunshade you two deserve those awesome awards! Before I forget mom is enjoying her classes and learning again! I'm so proud of her!

Wirey hugs,
Ozzy

Oh the new toy!

Well I'm online for a bit while mom just stares at the TV trying not to think of what classes are going to be like since today was only a half day and they messed up her schedule and she as she figured books weren't available yet. So she's just gonna relax and give me some time online how nice is my mom? Well I'm sure you're reading my title and going ok Oz what exactly is the new toy you have gotten? Well let me show you! Mom and Dad had heard my pleas after reading posts and seeing pictures on moms Yahoo! lists of other WFT's owning a new toy. Mom and Dad both know my deepest obession is getting my teeth on a real live squirrel. Unfortunately I don't have the skills quite yet to get my teeth on that savory creature so they bought me this!
















Let me tell you this was one terrific toy! But alas I didn't get to finish this toy since mom got worried about the way the fur I was pulling off was getting a bit swallowed and stuck so poof goes my squirrel. Not fair! I also did get a nice yummy soup bone which I want to thank Axel and his mom Daniella for giving mom that recipe I LOVE it! Tastes so good and makes me drool. It's almost better than my rawhide. So I've been nominated and people voted for me as photo of the month but I think my friend Fee won and that's terrific. Congrats possibly my dear Fee. Oh and congrats to my friend Sunshade she won blog of the month! How cool is that?
I was a little bit disappointed this weekend since we didn't do my weekly dog walk but mom made up for it with a trip to Petco and yep my new toy. Oh I'm glad to hear that Butchy & Snickers clothing line is doing well they were featured on DoggieWire so that anyone who subscribes to that email newsletter will be buying some of their clothing! Congrats and best of luck on all the upcoming business. Your mom makes some terrierific looking stuff!
I'm gonna get going mom's looking a bit tired and I am going to want some kind of a walk and snuggle time. Take care and talk to you all soon.

Wirey hugs,
Ozzy

Hello all,
I'm writing for the first time in a few days and I appologize for my lack of blogging. Well I haven't been available lately because mom has been busy with getting ready to go back to school. She starts on Monday but has been trying to get the house looking like it's clean so dad won't have a ton of cleaning to do since mom's never sure of how well dad is able to clean. So mom has asked that after this weekend to bare with my posts since I won't be able to get online while she is doing homework and whatever else she might have to do in the first few weeks of being back to school after 12 years of being out of school. So that is all I'm going to write. Thank you to everyone who has voted for me for photo of the month I truly do appreciate it. So I'm gonna go and snuggle with mom while she's sitting still long enough.

Wirey hugs,
Ozzy

What Makes For A True Doggie Friend-I've been Tagged!

OK so my pals Butchy and Snickers have nicely tagged me to name five (5) things that make a true doggie friend. I'm hoping I do this right because I'm not sure if they mean what it is I should do or what it is my humans should do.
So here goes brace yourselves folks!

1. Always ready to lend an ear or two!

2. Always up for a snuggle time.

3. Can keep a lap warm.

4. Wearing the funny stuff mom buys for me.

5. And last but not least gladly giving away my free kisses to whomever asks!

Now Butchy and Snickers since I am still a young pup I am not sure if that is what you wanted and quite frankly neither was my mom but she said I should just write down what I thought. So to whomever I tagged next please forgive me if my directions weren't clear enough. I wish I got creative like Butchy and Snickers and added pictures but mom's pictures aren't good as Linda's. Mom asked me to let Linda know that she wishes she had your talent! Now I must go and tagged 5 people to do this cool idea.

Wirey hugs,

Rainy Days

I love rainy days. Not so much for the fact that I hate the rain falling on me but for the simple fact that I get snuggle and play time with my mom and dad. There is nothing like just laying in bed with mom and being all snuggled next to her. It's the best thing in the world.
Then to top it off dad is off today so I got special play time with my dad. But the best part? We got to play alot together today. Oh man what a lucky guy I am.
We then went to the park when it cleared up for a bit and I got to run around like a mad man and catch my favorite frisbee. I also met up with a cocker spaniel. That dog wasn't into playing with me but hey that's fine whatever as mom says. My mom starts school in a little over a week and they are deciding where I should go during her in school time. They keep mentioning something about how I'd just be better going with her. Not a bad idea if you ask me. I could go around with her and help her carry her books. Mom's patiently counting down the days. Grandma mentioned something about wait 'til next week she'll be a basket case. Oh speaking of grandma it seems she fractured her toe helping great grandma the other day. So she's home with me and I can go snuggle in bed with her later tonight. I should help her get around the house. Yep it's true folks I am quite the snugglebug.

So I found out that my friend Tilly is doing well and she's romping around her yard and jumping in true terrier fashion. Keep up the good work my friend. Now my friend in Argentina Chechu has a new human baby brother Fede. Congrats to Chechu and new mom Jesica.
Oh did I mention they've nicknamed me destructo? Yep I've managed to take down the bird feeder with my backyard lead and the old light pole that apparently still had some "juice" in it. Don't know what juice is but I had a blast doing it.
Mom says that if you need anything torn down give her a call she'll send me over to knock it down for you. Grandma just shakes her head at me and great grandma says she doesn't know what they'd do without me. Am I going somewhere and no ones told me. Mom then reassured me it's just a saying. Oh ok that's fine then. Well I'm going to go back to my duties as the official house snugglebug. I like that nickname better than moms newest one for me.

Wirey hugs,

My day at the dogwalk


Well let me start off by saying I had such a good time doing the dog walk and I met so many new friends. I went with mom and dad which is always a good time. They had a bunch of snacks to hand out and dog frozen yogurt which tasted pretty good. My friend Amanda was there from Paws of Distinction and they got a picture with me and her. She said she's been enjoying my dog walk along with the other lady that was there from Paws. I am sorry I didn't catch her name.
That's Amanda and me at the dogwalk.
We then went to a bunch of other tents and I got to meet a few pit bulls who were really fun to play with. We also went to a fortune teller who read my paws and told mom that I'd live a long happy healthy life. Wow she's good.
I did run into my buddy Barron from our river walks that mom does with me weekly with nasty Gulliver. I also ran into my good friend Kodiak. Oh I haven't seen Kodiak in a couple of hot months. We played around a bit and mom made sure to get his picture this time. On the left is Kodiak and on the left is Barron.
So unfortunatey we didn't get to meet Annemarie Lucas face to face it was getting too hot and too late into the walk for it to happen and plus my mom forgot to buy more batteries for the camera and we didn't get as many pictures as we would have liked. But we did get me microchipped and now I'm good to go in case I get lost. Then came the best part dad bought me a hamburger to munch on. Oh man I love hamburgers off the grill I get them sometimes when mom or dad is grilling. The goody bag was a nice treat and mom got a shirt on it for raising an extra $25 plus. I got some free food samples a frisbee which lasted about 20 minutes. Some treats and a calendar for the rest of this year. That gave mom a good chuckle. I also saw two other wire fox terriers that weren't related to me. Mom was surprised to see two of them they were tinier than me and both girls. The people that we ran into kept complimenting mom on how well behaved I was and how handsome I was. She did get a bit upset because they kept thinking was a girl. Geesh I don't blame you there mom. With a name like Ozzy what did they think I was?! We had great weather but it was hot for me and mom. I did try the agility course and that was fun though mom was surprised I did it so well and caught on so fast. What does she think I am an idiot? I don't know about her somedays. I did find that mom was being followed by another dog a great dane. This chick kept walking up to my mother and followed her around. She pointed out to me that the great dane was behaving and listening to her better than I usually do. Well being that big I'd try to listen better too. What does she expect from a terrier? So we finally went home after a long day of walking, shopping, and hanging out.
So Sunday comes along and I'm a snoring pup in between mom and dad when that nasty alarm goes off signaling that it's time for us to get up. Well I wasn't happy to hear it I knew dad was home there was no need to get up. Mom then tells me it's time to get moving we have plans for the day. Well wait what plans? She didn't discuss them with me. We were going to my favorite place the dog walk! Oh what fun more dealing with Gulliver. But wait we pull up and who's there but my girl Shayna. Oh how happy was I to see my friend and big buddy. Gulliver of course started immediately and mom told dad to just keep walking she goes over and tells Gulliver to back off and stop it. YAY mom. Well finally Shayna sees what Gulliver is doing and boom she puts him in his place. God I love them dominate females. So we go for an extra long walk and I have my human buddy Jesse walking along with me and telling me his funny Ozzy stories. I missed that kid last time we were there. We finally come around that corner and what do I see but the beach and the river that means yep I can get dirty and smelly. So we hit the beach and mom's stil got me on lead just because she wants to go in the water with me and here comes Gulliver for round two. Well I don't know who was faster my friends my fearless mom or my Shayna. They were both right there telling Gulliver to stop it. Gulliver's mom needs to pay more attention to her pup. So we finally decided it was time to get moving we had some yard work to do. Mom did get me a new scarf because it benefitted the Aussie dog Rescue. She says anything to save any kind of animal. So here is my picture of me and dad eatting our burgers and hanging out like guys do.


These are some other dogs that I met at the dog walk. So let me finish this off by saying sorry it took so long to post. Tilly is doing much better. Also let's keep those who lost their lives today on 9/11/01 in our prayers. Mom says it was quite a tragic day. Take care.

Wirey hugs,

Alot of good news this week!

Well it's been almost a week since I last posted and I've gotta admit I've been a bit busy with mom and running errands with her.
I do have some good news on my friend Tilly whom I've posted prayer requests on my blog. Tilly has her tube out and is actually doing VERY well. She's walking on her own with just a little stubbling which happens to all of us. She is even back to her mommy duties of cleaning her sons face when she feels it needs to be and playing with him like a good mum should. Way to go Tilly that's showing 'em what a terrier 'tude is all about!
Now onto Dean-O he WON!!! Yep that's that's a WFT is officially pet of the month. Way to go Dean-O I hear you destroyed your prize winning toy in true record time! Makes me proud to know I'm not the only one who has the skills to tear into a stuffed mallard like that. So that will be $1000.00 well earned dollars going to a fabulous cause. Now mom's on a kick to help out Rowdy because she heard through the list that he needs it to pay off his own medical bills.
OK let me not forget to thank my buddy Axel. He won cool site of the day for yesterday 9-2-06. That's terrierific my friend. Here's the link if you haven't already accessed it through Ax's blog. http://dogmark.net/indexint.html.
Oh yes and my friend Fee has been busy helping her folks redecorate for their upcoming wedding. Nice job I saw your handy work Miss Fee and I don't care what they say you did a awesome job in helping out. Congrats to your mom and dad on their upcoming wedded bliss!
I just wanted to say thank you for the kind words on my bully Gulliver. I will be showing grandma later how other dogs out there agree with me on the bully that he is.
So next weekend is the dogs walk for the SPCA and mom is bugging dad to go with her and me for this worthy cause that is also close to her heart. So mom is on a mission to make dad go with us and do this little walk with us.
This walk is close to her heart because it is how we got the kitty 12 + years ago so she has to repay them for giving her that cat. Yep that cat I might not care for her but mom and grandma and great grandma do. So as I always hear I will be nice to the kitty and walk for her. Plus the big bonus for me!? I get to walk with other dogs and make new friends. Oh and the lady from Animal Precint Annemarie Lucas will be there as the Grand Marshal of the event so mom will enjoy meeting her if it's at all possible. I'll be sure to post pictures of the day when it takes place next Saturday 9-9-06. Well I'm gonna get moving. Enjoy yourselves and be good.

Wirey hugs,
Ozzy

Hello All!
Well I just wanted to thank everyone out there that signed up through either my friend Axel's blog or my friend Mackie's blog to vote for Dean-O. That is terrific and hopefully we can all keep voting to get Dean-O into the top spot and win the monthly prize.
So yesterday was my day to go for my weekly dog social walk as the lady that runs it calls it. Which is fine by me so long as I have fun and get to play. Well Gulliver was there this time the standard schnauzer and he has this weird obsession with my leash. Now Gulliver and his buddy Jazz get to go off leash and so does Punto the German Shepard but not me. Mom says she doesn't want to take any chances with me getting lost or the park rangers getting upset for us not following the rules which is fine by me since Gulliver is also becoming a bit abusive towards me. Now I don't mind playing rough like the next guy but do you have to grab on my leash and pull me every time you run up to me? So we're doing our walk and mom and dad are commenting on how they wish she'd pay more attention and actually watch her dog but for some reason she is busy talking to Puntos' owner Isobel. So we finally hit the beach and I know that dad's got on his swim trunks so that means we're going in the river with the rain and everything when out of nowhere Gulliver runs up and growls at me and bares his teeth at me. Well I decided that I wasn't going to let that one happen so I growled back and showed him my fierce teeth. Mom wasn't pleased at Gulliver and his mom pulled us apart. So dad grabs a stick and throws it in along with 3 other ones so that we can all play fairly. Well he took both of my sticks and Jazz took the other one. Geesh what's a guy to do to get a stick now a days?
So then Jazz and Gulliver both gang up on me and next you know Gulliver has my neck in his mouth. So Gullivers mom gets this idea that they should take me off lead to give me an advantage. Wow that was a blast I took off like white lightening. I booked off and left those two in the dust well sand actually. Mom finally got me to stop and whaddya know Gulliver was back Mom nicely told him to back off since she was with me. Dude didn't listen to mom(now that's a dumb dog) and he decided to try to get rough but his mom was right behind him with a pull of get off! We finally left after mom decided to keep us two seperated and we were walking and Gullivers mom kept saying him and Jazz are never like this. Mom and dad both say bull! Mom's trying to decide if we should go again this week if it was just dog's being dog's or does Gulliver have a thing against yours truly.
I really want to go back I like my walks they're fun and get me in shape and man did I mention I get to PLAY IN THE RIVER!!!
OK I appologize if I rattled on and didn't make sense since I'm a bit pooped from playing in the hose today.
Take care!

Wirey hugs,
Ozzy
PS grandma says mom's overreacting but hey! that was my neck wrapped in teeth not hers!

Thursday, August 24, 2006

Well I got some new pictures to post on here today. Mom took a picture of me last night while I was sleeping in the bed with my new bone from my favorite store that I mentioned in an earlier post. Then the nice lady Amanda from Paws of Distinction wrote mom back and included the cool picture of me so I gotta show that off to everyone.
Well I better update you guys on my girl Tilly she's back off to Bristol today to get that pesky feeding tube removed and is walking much better though mom says she's not up to par. Hey I say any walking she's doing is better than none at all. Hopefully she'll be back to her terrierific self soon enough. Get better young lady! Now I read that my friend Opy is getting her lumps checked out. I hope she'll be okey fine and that maybe her folks will allow her back into the house after the incident the other night when the bird flew right into her mouth. Man I woulda eaten that bird right up myself too if that were the case.
Oh before I forget which we know I'm prone to do can we all go and register with www.Petster.com and vote for Dean-O he's entered in the pet of the month club which could easily land him $1000 big ones and he's not going to spend a penny of it on treats even though he got attacked by a dog the other day. Nope this tough guy is going to give it to the fox terrier rescue group. Wow now that's a terrierific dog if I do say so myself which I do. So thanks to anyone who does.
OK now I'm gonna post my pictures for all to see and then get to moving since mom is on a kick to walk with me for a half hour every night in this venture of hers to lose weight. Hey any reason for us to walk is good enough for me. I made a new friend doing this walking last nite a black lab named Tucker. He was a cool guy fun to walk with and everything.
Wirey hugs,

Tuesday, August 22, 2006

Wow I haven't written in here in a few days. Mom's been busy online today trying to find out how to get grandma's new MP3 player to work on her computer. She's not having a good time. Well I found out Tilly is improving even more since she's been home. I'm telling you man nothing like being home with your family. Mine by the way had left alone today for a few hours while they all went to the mall. Dad said it was interesting going out with the girls. Wouldn't know dad you left me behind. Mom's been also online looking for her cousins wedding registry at the places she was told they were at. They're getting married on October 21, 2006 and what do you know I wasn't invited. I could have and would have gotten a tux for the occasion. I would have been perfectly happy being dressed up for some filet mignon. Geez I guess I'm not important enough. That's ok I hear Moto isn't invited to his own parents wedding. Man I'm sorry my cousin I won't even ask what happened there.
I'm happy to report that Sammy is getting along much better with his new furbuddy Max which apparently is his name finally. That's terrific guys good luck!
Oh I want some more prayers(demanding little man aren't I?) Mackie my friend's aunt Michelle got burnt the other day while sitting on her porch chatting away on the phone by a firecracker that someone set off. Well if you thought that was the worst part you're wrong she got treated very poorly by the cops and emt's that were there to help her. Geez mom says don't send them to help her she'd rather just sit there hurt if that was the "help" they were going to offer her. So I hope Aunt Michelle will get better fast and get them guys a good slap on the wrist to say the least. Maybe she should have Mackie come over for some kisses mom says mine always make her feel better.
Mom and grandma bought me a cool new toy at my favorite toy shop in New Paltz NY it's called paws of distinction and wow they have some cool stuff there too. My buddy Tessa wasn't in that day her mom wasn't feeling well so I got to sit on her couch and just hang out until these two guys came in and asked me to test out this squeaky toy they were gonna buy for their yorkie. Oh while I was there I even got my picture taken. Mom's trying to get a copy of the picture for my blog. Their pawsome website is www.pawsofdistinction.net I highly suggest dropping by and checking out their goods I say try out their biscuits since they are yummy.
Mom says she is impressed by said toy because they bought it on Saturday and it being Tuesday it has lasted this long. I think that was a shot at me I'm not sure though.
Well, I'm gonna get going I wanna go chew on that toy some more. Hope everyone is doing well out there.

Terrierific News on Tilly

Hey all just wanted to let you know Tilly is home and doing good. I have read that she is even walking with some help even stumbling and getting a bit exhausted but her mom Brenda said compared to 10 days ago that's PERFECT almost. Mom is a little choked up at the good news but hey I don't blame her one bit I am too.
Tilly even ate a bit on her own if she does that a few more times they say that feeding tube will come out. She even drank water when the vet said you had to force water her.
Her son Robbie is going bonkers (like a true terrier) 'cuz his mum is home finally.
Tilly my friend keep up the good work and we'll keep up them prayers and good thoughts!!

Wirey hugs, dances and kisses!
Ozzy
PS
I'm 9 months old as of yesterday!! Woohoo go me!

Tuesday, August 15, 2006

Hey guys!
I just wanted to do a quick post to say that my friend Tilly is doing much better and so far is scheduled to go home on Thursday if she keeps up her terrier-tude and doing as well as she has been doing since seeing her mum and son on Sunday.
I really wanted to thank everyone for praying for my friend and keeping her in your thoughts. It amazes mom and me how we all bond together in times like this to make sure one of us dogs gets better. OK I'm done being serious now. I'll post more later or tomorrow.
Take care and have fun!

Wirey kisses,

I've been tagged by Fee!




















This is me on my recent car ride with mom and dad to Petsmart. I got a new goose that lasted about 30 minutes. Man that bad boy tasted so good and oh the noise it made was awesome. Mom and dad were impressed with my destruction skills.
Looks like I’ve been tagged by Fee! You don’t know what that means? Well apparently, its kind of a confessional. You tell everyone five five weird things you've done/five weird habits of yours and then you tag five more people, and so on and so on.So five weird things about me, or that I’ve done ….I can’t even imagine, mom says I’m perfect. Okay, I confess:
1. I like to bark it is the one thing I do well since I bark at whatever I think I need to bark at. Even if there is nothing there.

2. Well I must confess I love eatting salads with my mom they taste delish and I hear it is good for me.

3. I like to watch any animal show the animal planet is my favorite thing to watch or the dog whisperer.

4. I really don't like the dog Oreo that plays with me. I just play with him to see how much I can beat him up.

5. I really love burying things in the backyard even if I dig it up a minute later and eat it again.

Now I gotta tag 5 people so I'm hoping I don't re tag someone here goes. . . . . I tag Cyrus, Zach, Tinkerbelle, Bogart, and Sammy.
Have fun my friends!

Wirey hugs,
Ozzy

Good news on my friend Tilly

OK I'm showing you Tilly's mums email to mom's group. Mom teared right up hearing this good news.

Date: Mon, 14 Aug 2006 10:23:30 +0100 (BST)
Subject: Tilly Update

We went to see Tilly on Sunday afternoon. The good news is that if she continues to feed through the tube ok we can bring her home Thursday afternoon. There is no treatment for what she has , just dedicated nursing care. 60 – 70 % recover apparently. She has Distal denervating disease.
When we went in she wagged her tail and Robbie went berserk jumping up and down and barking. When he’d calmed down he lay beside her and they licked each other’s faces. It was so sweet. She didn’t look very pretty as they’d shaved her neck. She had her paw bandaged where the drip was and a tube in her side. She had a stretchy net vest on. She’s had some food through the tube and luckily hadn’t been sick. Over the next few days they are going to increase it to the full daily amount. She was quite bright, lifting her head and looking around. She growled when another dog barked outside the room. Her growl sounded normal to me. I couldn’t get her to bark – remember her bark had gone all squeaky and her growl. We put her on her peanut and gave her some physio. She also sat for about 1 minute, but her front legs were in front of her, not the usual upright wire position. We were there an hour and a half and she seemed to tire very quickly. She is still biting ! I left her two favourite toys for her, just so she felt a bit more at home.
When we go in Thrusday they are going to show us how to feed her through the tube. The drip will have been removed as she will get her liquid from the food. We have to try and get her to eat solid foot.
Thankfully it isn’t hereditary and if a dog gets better they never get it again.
If anyone finds anything else, or maybe even some homepathic cure, please let me know.
Thank you all for your prayers and good wishes.

Update on Tilly

This is the latest as of this am from Tilly's mom. Please keep Tilly and her family in your thoughts and prayers. Also the doctors who are taking care of her so that they may find out what is wrong with that sweet girl.
We came home from Bristol a very miserable crew having had to leave Tilly there. The vet had tested all her reactions and was baffled. She said they do not match up with each other. I will not say what she said at that time as it is out of date, but what she told me when she rang that night with an update.
It was nothing to do with the fall that caused her to fall over. That was just coincidental. She was worse that evening, more floppy. It seems that her motor nerves are being affected, not her sensory nerves. They are worried it may affect her respiratory system and she would then die. The have put her on a drip as although she tried to lap water she didn’t swallow it. Today, if she lives they are going to put a tube into her stomach as she will not eat. She has some sort of toxin. If it is a homeopathic one 70 % get worse for ten days then recover. She still has some fight in her – she tried to bite them ! That’s my girl. (I’m crying)
Tomorrow she will have an MRI scan.
They asked if she’d eaten a dead animal. The only one I know of is when she had a (stinking) dead rat in her mouth to bring into the puppies near the end of May. I took this off her.
Apparently a blood test showed she had abnormally high levels of fat in her blood. I cannot understand this. She has Pedigree Complete and Butchers wet food, table scraps, smackos as treats and pigs ears. The vet said these would not have caused these levels.
Several vets have looked at her. Today the are going to knock her out and test her muscles.
She and Robbie have been together all the time. I am worried sick about him now.
LATEST UPDATE!

The vet rang last night and said that Tilly had had a good day.She was no worse and maybe even a little better.Her breathing was fine. They have done more blood tests which will take a week to come back.They have had her standing on a peanut. We think this is a peanut shaped frame that supports her belly so she can stand. This is to stop her getting bedsores and also pneumonia from lying down all the time. We are going to go and visit her this Sunday. She can still stand on her own for a short time.
Today they will knock her out and test the muscles and nerves in her legs. From this they can tell if she has any spinal damage - discs, spinal cord. If she has she will have an MRI scan.
I asked about the incubation period if she'd eaten something and she said that they had dismissed this idea now and this wasn't the cause. They still do not know what the cause is. I just hope that all of it is reversible.

[wirefoxterrier] Tilly Update


The last three days no change maybe be marginally better but hard to say. No worse anyway. Yesterday they tested her spinal fluid which is fine. When testing her muscles with needles (?) they were all abnormal - better near her spine and worse near her paws. Whilst she was out they put a tube in her stomach to feed her. She is on a drip. They turn her every four hours and in the afternoon she is taken out onto the physio ball (board?) where she can stand and is supported so she doesn't fall over. All tests so far have come back negative - ticks, etc. At first they thought it was botulism, but this has been ruled out.

Thye now say it is idiopathic disdordinvating (phonetic spelling !) or did she say disco-ordinating ? I asked her what her gut feeling was and she said hopeful. Her breathing is fine and she was very very grumpy today, biting - that's my girl ! They have had dogs before in with it and 60 - 70 % recover after 3 - 4 weeks like this.

We are going up tomorrow to see her. Apparently it was nothing to do with the jumping out, that was just coincidence. At least she is in the best place in the country.

Robbie is missing her terribly. Please pray for her everyone.

Prayers for Tilly

OK guys I don't normally write this soon or ask for anything really. But a new mommy wire was out with her humans and wirey son this past weekend and she hurt herself. Her mom Brenda says that "Tilly had a fall on holiday by jumping out of her pen where we put her with Robbie while we unpacked the caravan. She has never done this before. We didn't see what happened. She seemd ok for a couple of days except she couldn't jump on the bed which we put down to stiffness. She walked fine on her lead. Sunday morning she didn't want to walk so we carried her as it was very very hot. Monday morning she kept falling over. We rang our vet and went there when we got home that afternoon. He thought it was severe bruising of the nerves in her neck and gave her anti- inflamatory injection and a tablet for later.I had to take her back this morning. She cannot bark, only squeak. This morning she cannot walk at all and just falls over. She seems to be in no pain at all. I took her to the vet this morning and she had x-rays and neurological tests. The vet said I need to take her to Bristol University Veterinary College tomorrow for 9.30am. This is over 3 hours aways so we are going tonight. Robbie cannot understand what has happened to mum." I'm asking you guys to put Tilly and her family in your thoughts and prayers to help them find out what is wrong with her and for them to make her all better. Also for them to have a safe trip to the vet's office it is a 3 hour drive one way. Man Tilly is one lucky lady to have a mom who loves her so so much. Mom told me that Tilly had pups when she joined the WFT Yahoo list back in March (probably a short time after she joined) and that Tilly now lives with her son Robbie who is beside himself with worry over his mommy as you've just read. I can't imagine how he feels I'd be nuts if my mommy wasn't feeling too hot. OK so that's my request from all of my friends out there to please please please pray for Tilly and her family!
Thanks so much,
Ozzy

August 7, 2006

Hey all!
Mom finally got off of the computer long enough for me to type away.
Well this weekend wasn't too bad nor was it extremely hot. Made my walk with my friends even more fun. We ran into my buddy Barron and he and I chased each other around along with my new bud Gus. What a blast we all had running around on the sandy beach and we all swam in the gorgeous Hudson River we didn't see the alleged manatee that has ventured up to my neck of the woods. Man we would have asked him or her to play with us. This was my first time swimming and wow I see what mom is always talking about how she loves swimming all the time. Too bad her pool doesn't allow us pups I'd ask to go along with her. Dad said he had some fun watching us dogs play and to go for the hike with mom and me.
Well I got to listen to my buddy Jesse's story about me. Jesse you see is my buddy who is five years old we do that walk together and is owned by his dog Shayna. Well he has come up with these ideas I guess you can call them about me doing a flip off of a diving board and swimming in the swimming pool. Well Jesse has got some ideas and is quite the creative guy. He even has me swimming across the river and then after the swim across the river I'm getting on the motor boat driving it. Man I like this kid's ideas. He also has me sky diving out of the sky(mom is not sure out of what he didn't say) and jumping into the river. Jesse is quite an awesome kid and mom likes him for his imagination and you know so do I. Man I never knew I was such an adventurous pup!
I wanted to bring up something that I am enjoying doing with this one web page that I belong to that is all about dogs with blogs. Well it is called Paws it Forward. We're to pick five dogs whom we don't know and stop by and say hello to them on their blog. I thought this was a great idea to get us out of our shells and go meet new dogs. Terrific idea Opy and company.
Well dad's working tonight and he had to work this weekend something about mandatory overtime which stinks because we didn't get to hang out at all this weekend like we usually do. I miss my dad when he's busy working. Mom had me outside on my lead for most of the day enjoying the sunshine and warm air. Way better than last week. It's supposed to be cool tomorrow night and man I can't wait. No a/c and even an early morning walk.
Well I wanted to say thanks to all that have been stopping by and leaving me messages. I enjoy making all of the new friends I've made with this blog and wished all of you lived closer for us to play together!
Stay cool and enjoy yourselves.
Wirey hugs,
Ozzy

Wow I can't believe it's already August. Time sure flies when you're having fun. In about 2 weeks I will be 9 whole months. They better start planning my birthday party. I'll be a whole year old. Grandma bought me a brand new t-shirt at Target today. Mom says that she'll have to get some pictures taken of me.
Well I'm having a blast I found out on this list mom belongs to that's all about terrier's on MSN has made me breed and dog of the month. Wow I get a month all to my own!
I've been making new friends here in the blogging land. I have made a friend named Buster who lives in Jupiter FL which is where my dad is from. Well, actually dads from Florida not Jupiter. Buster has his own blog on here this is a link to his blog.
http://foxterrorist.blogspot.com/ Feel free to go take a peak if you haven't already done so. Then there is my newest pal Sammy he's a young pup who's looking to get a brother who's a puggle. I'm not sure if I know what a puggle is or that I would want a brother or a sister. This is Sammy's blog link go visit the young guy he deserves it. http://www.sammyswftworld.blogspot.com/ Mom says she's going to have to learn how to add links to their sites on our site so that way if you visit me you can visit them more easily.
Oh my friend's Butchy and Snickers I'm sure I've mentioned them previously well their mom Linda has started her store with their friend Ladybugs mom. I highly recommed checking out that site too. Us wires have to stick together and support each other so we can get more treats and goodies which is what their moms have promised them with that extra money. Here's the link

Well tomorrow is the day of our now weekly dog walks. Dad is going with us and man I can't wait he gets to watch me have a blast in the river with the other dogs.
Maybe I will get one of my parents to take some pictures for me to share with all of you.
Well I'm cutting this short since it's dad's only night off and I need to go beat him up. Have a grrreat weekend.

July 30, 2006

Wow did I have a blast this weekend. I got to do so much stuff and meet new pups and friends(human types) I can't believe I had such an eventful weekend.
Yesterday I got extra time playing with the hose! Mom said with the weather being so darn hot I deserved more time under the hose. You won't hear any complaints from me.
So then we went to Mills Mansion on Sunday. You might recall me mentioning it in one of my earlier posts. Well we did the whole dog walk thing. Oh that was awesome I made some new friends and one of these days mom says we'll have to take some pictures to share with everyone.
I met a puppy named Gulliver there that was younger than me and bigger than me. Well we walked through these woods and while the other dogs were off leash mom just kept looking at me saying I'm sorry sweetie I'm afraid you'd run away. I might I'm not even sure. Well I walked with this German Shephard named Punto. We then ended up at the river. Oh that was a blast I jumped through the water nose dived too! I met up with this Chocolate Lab named Baron he is my age and we had a blast chasing his ball and jumping through the water. I met a puppy named Gulliver there that was younger than me and bigger than me. Wow Gulliver is a Giant Schnauzer. He had this weird obsession of grabbing my leash and chewing on it. While we were at the river and I was playing in the water he grabbed it and mom finally had had it and took my leash out of his mouth. Thanks mom. I even got to play with this little boy named Jesse he was there with his mom and their dog Shayna. I guess mom said we'll be going back next week which is great because it was great for me and for mom. Mom did get me home and bathe me because I smelt like the river and I was sandy. That was cool because the bath felt good and then afterward we got upstairs and took a nice nap.
I have included a few pictures for you all to view.


This one is me in the bed in the bag mom and dad bought for the new bed. They didn't really think I was going to let them make the bed without any help from me did they?








Now this is of me and my grandma this is how I usually sit in the chair with her or mom. But I'm usually am right behind them. Mom said she tried to get rid of the red eye but just couldn't make it happen. Well this week's going to be a scorcher and that means yep more hose time! She hopes grandma and daddy will be cool at work. I hope so too and I hope all of my friends out there will stay cool too and get plenty of water. Take care.

Wirey hugs,

Well I am back and badder than ever! LOL no let me stop. Mom and grandma though want to muzzle me for barking so much today. Man don't they know that's my job? Mom took me for a walk just a little while ago and we met up with my buddy Oreo along with his girlfriend Neela along with the cute Bichon Frise bitch next door named Zoe she's my age and plays just as rough and tough as me. We're all trying to plan now a way to meet up for all of us to play while our owners just hang out and talk. Aw man this could be love.
I found out today that I got hooked up with
http://www.dogswithblogs.com.au/. I've joined quite a few of my other wirey pals in the great world web that can make us all famous. Now on to one of my favorite organizations to support the SPCA in our area is having it's petswalk in Bowdoin Park on September 9, 2006. Mom says we are there. She loves taking me to things like this and letting me meet other dogs not to mention it is for a good cause and I get to hook up with other pups. http://www.pawsintheparkpetwalk.com/. There's the link if you are a local and want to join us in something fun and helpful. Mom's happy because Dad's off for this walk since he was off for the Pets walk against cancer we did back in May. That was a BLAST we got a ton of goodies and I met a bunch of other pups. Not to mention it was after my cut so I was looking like quite the handsome pup. Got the compliments to prove it too.
I wanted to say that I am glad to hear that my buddy Pippin is finally going to start feeling better. Mom Pat found out that he had Guardia(I don't even wanna know since mom said Pip would be on a bunch of antibiotics for a while). So Pippin shall be feeling better very soon. Paws crossed!
Well folks I must go dad is mentioning something about going into the snack drawer. Yippee!
Stay cool.
