Ya Wanna Get Me a WHAT for my birthday?

Hey pups.  Today wuz ok, I guess.  It started with a Forced Bataan Death March Zombie Patrol™ where at least I gotta bark some zombies.  Ya knows what kinda zombies I really don't understand?  Runnin zombies.  Dey just run and run and dey ain't even chasin a skwerril.  I don't know what are wrong wif em.  Maybe dey ate dere own brains or somefin.  Anyways, I always bark dem real good.  Sometimes I even likes to sit to bark em, but momma always drags me along.  And makes all kindsa rude comments bout me gettin a cattle prod for my birthday, which are comin up real soon.  I been tellin her I need a princess stroller, but I don't think she are gonna go for dat one, she says I need to keep walkin so I my arthur-eye-tis don't get even worser.  Oh well.

Not a Fashun Eggsecory

Yeah, dere are a reason I are wearin dis bandage and it are not a fashun eggsecory.  It are cuz one of my toenails wuz bleedin when I came home from my Zombie Patrol™.  And da same thing happened yesterday, it kinda freaked my momma out.  See, she wuz out gettin a fizzy water from da garage fridge for her exorcisin and she saw blood on da kitchen floor.  Well, dat wuz yesterday and I got all bandaged up until my toenail stopped bleedin (I don't clot real great and can tend to bleed for quite a while).  Well, my footsie was fine all of yesterday and last night, but today after out walk, it wuz doin da same thing.  Maybe it are cuz I keep balkin and diggin my feet into da sidewalk.  But if momma would just let me nap in da naybor's yard, dis probably wouldn't happen.

Anyways, I were not feelin real great.  I even let my momma cuddle me last night instead of goin straight to my Head of Security Guard Post at da foot of da bed.  I went up to momma and wanted snuggles.  Dat never happens!

I's just hopin my foot don't do no bleedin stuff tomorrows.

Hey y'all!  I are participatin in my pal Oz's Bad Poetree Day today!

I's Whitley and I luvs to swim
In da pool wif my momma Kim

Da pool's where you'll find me
And playin pool ball
Is da bestest thing of all
When I play I bark and arooo
Come over here and I'll bark ya too

Write your own bad poem dis week and join up wif da blog hop!  Ya can see more bouts it on Oz's blog.

My New Paw Nosh Bowls

Hey y'all, ya may have seen da review my BFF Finley did of da Paw Nosh bowls her momma ordered for us.  Well, even if ya did, ya should read mine too since it's got pictures of me.

Dis week, some packages in da mail came for us.  And it are bout time.  Da peeps are always orderin things for demselves, like clothes, and weird speaker parts, and dolls and all kindsa weird stuff.  It are bout time dey ordered somefin for us.  A couple weeks ago, my momma were getting me and Finley's dinner ready and crazy Crockett jumped up on da kitchen counter and knocked one of our doggie bowls right to da ground.  And it were destroyed.

So Finley's momma went online lookin, and dat are when she discovered Paw Nosh.  Dey had some real pretty glass bowls and da mommas are suckers for pretty glass.  Ya know, da whole sparkly object thing??  Anyways, da bowls came in da mail and me and Finn were very interested.  Da bowls were packed up real fancy.

Dey ordered one big water bowl for us and two foodz bowls.

We's all likin em round here, I are even eatin more of my kibble.  And da water bowl even gets da Maurice stamp of approval and he don't even usually like drinkin water.

Dese bowls are kinda eggspensive, but dey is real heavy duty.  So dey are not gonna break.  And each one even comes wif a lifetime warranty so ya don't needs to worry bout another bowl.  Although I wouldn't be adverse to gettin a pink one if dey start makin dem.  So far, dey only make aqua, orange, and green.

Da bowls is made from recycled glass, so dey is "safe and sustainable" whatever dat means.  All I know is I like dat I can see through my food bowl, I can make sure Finley ain't sneakin up on me to steals my kibbles.

If ya wants to order a Paw Nosh bowl of your own, dey is runnin a sale until August 26 - use da code BEACH15 to get 15% off.

Oh, and like Finley said, we didn't get dese bowls for free or nuffin, we just did da review cuz we liked em!

In other news, dat lump round my eye are lookin a lot better, so I got to play pool ball today.  I wuz very happy!

P.S. Could y'all go vote for my kitty pal Inky in the Haus Panthers Cats Climbing High contest?  He are entry #6, so vote for his momma Laura Strickland here.  Fanks!

Eye Problems

Hey y'all, today were not such a great day.  It started out all right, I ackshually had fun on my zombie patrol today - dere were lotsa dogs and zombiez out dere to bark and I barked dem all real good.  And I didn't sit nearly as much as I did yesterday which made my momma happy.  Dey get happy at da weirdest things.

But den my momma went to brush me (she said I wuz lookin a lil too scruffy and disreputable) and she noticed dis inflamed-lookin pink lump near my eye.  So instead of going out to play pool ball, which had been da plan, I had to wait round and go to da vet.  Momma didn't know what it were - maybe a bite or somefin, but she thought we should get da vet to check it out since it are so close to my eye.

Here's a pikshure of my eye if ya wanna see it.  It are not too pretty.

Da vet visit wasn't too bad, I got a shot of benadryl and dexamethasone which are sposed to help.  And I got some meds my momma has got to put on it.  If it are not better by Monday, I are sposed to go back.

Well, momma and me went out in da backyard and da pool dis afternoon.  But she wouldn't throw my pool balls for me since she didn't want to hit me in my eye or somefin since it are already messed up. What da woof???  I hope dis eye thing clears up kwik, I wanna go back to playin!

Black and White Sunday

Hey pals, y'all like my sleepyhead Sunday photo?  I were tired after goin on my zombie patrol, dere weren't any zombies out today so it were kinda boring.  And hot since it wuz 103 today.  Not while I were walkin, but it were gettin dere.

I were doin my Ted impreshun when I first started out.  Has y'all seen Ted da Basset go for a walk??

Only I wuz more on my belly and not on my side.  Momma says she are gonna try to get a video of it.

Dis video reminded me of our basset Hanky Panky.  Back when I were just a lil puppy a bazillion years ago, da mommas took me and Hank on a walk.  I were full of puppy energy and Hank were full of basset stubbornness and wanted to sit down.  I kept yippin at him to get movin, but he kept sittin.  Now I are da one doin da sittin and momma made some kinda snotty comment bout gettin a lil puppy to yip at me.

Do y'all think I are maybe turnin into a basset?  It would explain da wrinkles on my back.

Dis Land Are My Land

Hey y'all.  I are feelin better today - da Arthur-Eye-Tis dude are not botherin me so much.  So I wuz happier goin on my walk and I were barkin.  I wuz even barkin a song.  Dis song are to all da zombie soccer players and other dogs who were walkin in MY field.  I got all inspired by another native Oklahoman, Woodie Guthrie.

"Dis Land are MY Land" by Whitley

Dis land are my land, yes it are my land
So get off of it, Bark Bark Bark Bark Bark Bark!
From California, all da way to Bawston
And all of Texas, it belongs to Whitley
Dis land were made for only me

As I went walkin through da streets of Plano
And saw some doggies, even saw a zombie
I barked dem good and told dem to get out
Dis land were made for only me

Dis land are my land, yes it are my land
So get off of it, Bark Bark Bark Bark Bark Bark!
From California, all da way to Bawston
And all of Texas, it belongs to Whitley
Dis land were made for only me

Well, all dat bein creative and musical were exhausteratin, so den I had to go chill in da pool.

I played some pool ball, den I worked on my tan for a while.

Most da time I spent in da pool since it were HOT (over 100!)  Which are pretty normal for us in August, at least it are not over 110.

Black and White Sunday

Hey pals.  Today were not such a good day.  My Arthur-eye-tis is actin up today, and I were havin a tuff time on my Zombie Patrol.  Don't worry, I still barked dem zombies, specially da soccer playin ones in my big field, but I also just wanted to sit down a lot cuz my hips hurt.

And momma had to help me back up on my pool float cuz I were not doin too great in da swimmin department.  After dat, I didn't really wanna play and just wanted to float round.  Sometimes a girl just needs to relax some, specially if dat girl are almost 12.  

Don't worry bout me or nuffin, I are doin ok, it were just not a good day for me.  :(  Dat arthur-eye-tis guy stinks big time.  I don't like him at all, I fink he are even worse dan zombies.

Sepia Saturday

Well, today my sunshines returned and it were not so boring.  Da day started wif a Zombie Patrol - I saw an airedale and a big schnauzer right outside my house and I barked em up good.  I gotta bark some zombies too, it were a fun time.

Den my momma did her exorcisin and I took a post Zombie Patrol nap.  Barkin zombies are a tuff job and watchin my momma exorcise are borin.  Until she gets real sweaty and den I tries to lick her.  BOL!  

And I got some bacon today since da Finley's momma made a big brunch.  Delishus!  

Next up was pool ball and lotsa barkin.  Den I got a baff, which I know mosta y'all hate, but I luvs.  Da only thing I are worried bout are da groomin dat usually follows a baff, I gotta go hide dat stripper.  And it are not da fun kind either, it are da kind dat steals my preshus furs.  Gonna go work on a good hidin spot.

A Whole Lotta Boring

Yeah, dat has basically summed up dis week.  A whole lotta borin.  It has been rainin and stormin and stuffs.  Or just being misty and gray.  I didn't get to do no zombie patrols on counts of da rain and stuff.  And I hasn't gotten to play pool ball for three days.  I fink dis are torture.

I are so bored, I are inventin stuff to bark at.  Like I been barkin at cats knockin stuff over and ghosts and invisible zombies and all kindsa stuff.  Besides my normal barkins at da peeps and Finley.

I are really hopin da weather gets better so I can go back to patrolin for zombies and playin pool ball. All dis gray borin stuff are makin me exhausterated.
