Sunday Selfie

Hey y'all.  I are doin a lil better - I are still not walkin real good, but I are movin some.  Kinda like my back half is drunk though, I wobble and weave.  My momma are still callin me Stumbalina.  I'll put up wif it as long as she keeps helpin me out by carryin me round.

It are still nice and warm here, so I gotta spend most da afternoon in da backyard, I even got in da pool and floated round some.  No pool ball or swimmin or anything like dat, just chillin on da S.S. Whitley.

And I finally got my first long-awaited bike ride today.

Momma just biked up and down da block wif me - she wanted to make sure I liked it and get used to bikin wif me in da basket before we tried goin too far.  Well, I didn't like it, I LOVED it!  I wuz grinnin when we wuz movin, even huffin da air.  Finally, my momma gets it.  Wheeled transpotayshuns - dis are what I want.  Movin wif NO work at all.

And momma didn't crash da bike and traumatize me or nuffin either.  So it wuz all fun.

I are ready for tomorrow's bike ride!

Birfday Fun Times

September are a bizee month for birfdays round here.  First up are Finley's daddy, den it are me, and today it wuz Ally's birfday.  Ally are my momma's sister for those of y'all who don't know.  Oh, and dere are also my momma's grandma's birfday and her grandpa's and uncle's birfdays in dere too, but since I don't live wif em and get to share dere birfday noms, well, I are not dat interested in dose.

Happy birthday Ally!

She wuz givin me lotsa pets dis morning.

Finley's momma and my momma made crabbycakes eggs benedict for Ally's birfday breakfast.  Ok, wif da two of dem in charge, it wuz more like birfday brunch.

I wuz a smart pup and hung out in da kitchen while Finley went off to her room to nap.  Which meant to pre-wash all da plates!!

Ally had a good time openin her presents.

I guess she got some good stuffs, but I didn't see no stuffies in there.  So probably nuffin worth stealin.

Ok, now dis are da unfair part.  Ally got some of my birfday cuppycakes.  But she went and picked a chocolate cheeseycake for her birfday dessert, which meant I couldn't get none.  What da woof???  At least my momma let me have some whippy cream.  I guess bein a cripple dat has to be carried round everywhere has it's advantages, namely bein dat da peeps feel sorry for ya and is more inclined to share dere foodables.  Which are always appre-she-ated.

Now how bout some more whippy cream???

Not So Wordless Wednesday

Here are da udder side of my dress, it has Laurel Burch puppies and kitties on it.

I even has a matchin pillow, Finley's momma made it for me years ago when I lived in Lost Angulus. See, dere wuzn't any air condishinunin in da apartment and it was HOT so I wuz always lyin by da screen door.  And she made me dis cute lil pillow to lie on.  Now I can camo-flaje on it.

I are not havin too good a day.  We went on a Zombie Patrol™ today, and it really took it outta me.  I wuz kinda stumblin and hoppin along, but momma thought I wuz doin "ok."  She's been callin me Stumbalina lately, she sure thinks she are a comedian (I guess somebody should think she are funny). Anyways, when I got home, I lied down for a nap, and since den I has not really been able to walk.  At all.  Momma carried me to da food bowl and I ate, so my appetite are still good.  I ate my Boo Bar cookies too.  But I didn't even move when we went out back, eggcept to ooch myself into da shades (it are still in da 90s).  No backyard patrol like normal and no gettin in da pool.  So momma knows I are not feelin my best.  I are gettin threatened wif da V-E-T if I don't start gettin better soon (not dat I dislike my vet, I's just kinda scared of all vets after da time I had to have stitches - dey hurt a LOT!).  Meanwhile, my momma are gonna be dosin me wif Metacam and tryin out some accupreshure for da arthur-eye-tis.  So let's hope dat works and no vet are needed.  And momma, if ya feels da need to take me round da nayborhood - dat are what dem bikes and da bike baskets are for, ok???

Blue Buffalo Halloween Boo Bars from Chewy!

Hey y'all!  It are almost fall - are you eggcited??  Ok, I are more of a summer girl, but I luvs fall too.  It means cooler temps, leaves to play in, my momma's and Finley's momma's birfdays, and funnest of all - dressin up for Howloween!  Me and momma luvs Howloween and we luvs decoratin and dressin up.  And today I got to try a tasty Howloween-themed treat -  da Blue Buffalo Halloween Boo Bars from

Chewy are da online pet store dat delivers foods and treats right to your doorstep!

Dey is pumpkin and cinnamon flavored and dey smelled so tasty!  My momma said dey smelled mostly like cinnamon, but she could smell some pumpkin too.  She has a pretty good sniffer for a hooman.

Da Blue Buffalo Halloween Boo Bars are oven-baked crunchy treats.  Dey's what we calls cookies round here.

Dey are made in da USA da has oatmeal, barley, oat flour, pumpkin, flaxseed, cane molasses, carrots, salt, canola oil, and cinnamon, along wif some vitamins.  So Finley gets to have dis treat too.  Why my momma always picks out treats I have to share, I still hasn't figgered out.

Ok, dey look yummy, let's get to eatin!

Stop teasin me momma!

Dat wuz delishus!!  Can I has anudder??

Finley came runnin when she heard da magic word - "cookie."

My momma are either very brave or very dumb and doesn't value her fingers.

I think Finley liked em as much as I did!  Dese wuz a big hit, da Boo Bars earned 8 paws up and 2 waggin tails!  

Again, we wuz impressed by Chewy's fast shippin - our treats came right away.  Fanks so much Chewy!

Disclaimer: As part of the Chewy Blogger Program, I wuz provided the treat for free for an honest review, but wuz not paid for my opinion.  Since I already got my beach trip, I guess I just should keep askin for dat brand new convertible to cruise round town in.  Ya never knows.

More Time in Sanibel and Da Trip Home

Well, I hopes y'all likes pictures cuz I gots a bazillion of em.

On Tuesday, we had annudder nice day at da beach on Sanibel Island.

Da mommas went out early in da mornin to look for shells.  My momma found dis pretty welk shell - and she also found a hermit crab who musta thought it wuz a pretty good shell too!

Dey also got to see some live fighting conches, Finley's momma made sure dat nobody picked em up to steal dere shells (some of dem peeps wuz lookin like dey wanted to).

And den dere wuz dis birdie wif da sunburned legs, BOL!

Dere wuz piles and piles of shells.

My momma went off and did her mermaid thing of swimmin in da oshuns.

Me and Finley wuz waitin for em back at da cottage.

I wore my new dolfin dress.

It even has mermaid and dolfin buttons.

My momma has got crazy hairs from bein in da oshuns.

Finally, it wuz time for me to go down to da beach again.  Come on, let's go!

I couldn't walk too great, but I wuz tryin my best to get down to da waters.

And I wuz a happy pup when I wuz there.

Finley and me wuz both happy!!

Da weather wuz lookin kinda threatenin . . .

Finley and her momma went on a walk, me and my momma just parked our butts on da beach.

Finley had a fun time playin in da surf.

I just waited for da surf to come to me!

I luvs feelin dem oshun breezes on my furs.

 And who doesn't like gettin all sandy???

Den it started pourin and we had to go in for a whiles.  But den it stopped rainin quite so hard and I gotta go back out again.

I wuz happy!

I helped my momma look for seashells - she wuz diggin through seashell piles and us terrierists is eggspert diggers.

Seashells sure smells interesting!

Den I walked on da beach some.

Dis one burd kept invadin my terriertory, so I had to bark him.

I got some pets, but I also got some rood comments like "you know that dog's limpin" (duh, my momma are not an idiot) and "what's wrong with that dog?" (to which my momma responded "what's wrong with your face" - very machure momma, BOL BOL).  Guess some peeps has never heard dis one . . .

But I had a good time anyways.

 Den da mommas went out to go eat.  And dey wuz matchy matchy - yup, dey is sillies!  Dey even went out to eat at George and Wendy's Sanibel Seafood Grille in dere matchin outfits.

Dat night, my momma hurt her toe real bad.  Nope she didn't get it cut on a shell or stung by a jellyfish or anything ya might be thinkin.  She fell in da cottage, stubbin her big toe so bad on da ground dat da skin ripped and it bled all over da place.  And nope, she hadn't been drinkin DAT much!  BOL!  It wuz nasty.  So dere are no pictures of it.  Cuz I don't figger my pals is into pictures of nasty bloody feets and if anybody who are readin my blog are into dat kinda weirdo stuff, well, dey can just move along, ok??  So da lastest day wuz kinda a bummer for my momma - no mermaid swimmin for her wif her foot like dat.

I don't think it are all dat bad, now me and momma is both gimpy.  And she does like to match me, BOL.

Momma did take some more pictures and look for more shells though,

And she met dis lil crabby dude while she wuz lookin.  Momma luvs crabs (both da eatin kind and da lil animal kind).  I fink it are dat Lil Mermaid thing again.

More burdies.

Momma really went nutso wif da seashells - if dere are any left on da beach, it are not her fault, BOL BOL!

It wuz a pink kinda day.

I wore da new bike dress dat Finley's momma made me for my birfday.

Momma matched me, and not just wif gimpiness.

Den we had to leave.  I fink Sanibel wuz sad to see us go cuz da sky wuz cryin a lot, BOL!

Finley wuz lookin concerned bout gettin in da car.  Like we'd forget her!

Does we really have to go momma??

Ok, but I don't gotta be happy bout it.  At least I's wearin my cute pinwheel dress (it are da reverse side of da bike dress).

Momma wore pink too.

Den we went up da highway to Tallahassee.  Da mommas got all dressed up for dinner - dey said we wuz goin to meet a friend!

Remember how I wrote bout my pal Atticus Finch dat passed away?  Well, me, Finley, and da mommas went to meet his momma and his lil brofur Harper at Newk's.

Harper wuz such a cutie - and such a big pup!  He makes me look kinda miniature!

We had a good time sniffin each udder and givin each udder puppy kissies.

Finley wuz a lil standoffish at first, but she calmed down once she realized Harper wuzn't gonna get her pizza bones.  And pizza bones wuz involved.

By da end of da nite, we wuz boff in luv wif Harper and wanted to take him home wif us.

I mean, who couldn't luv dat cute face??

Neither me or Finley wanted to leave, but da mommas made us get back in da minivan to go to da hotel.

At least we had a good view.

Da nextest day, we wuz ready to get on da road again.  Even if we had to do it wifout da cutie pie Harper.

I wore my starfishy dress.

Me and momma wuz ready for anudder long car ride!

Furst stop (well, after da gas stayshun where I had to stay in da car) wuz Alabama.  And yup, da skies wuz so blue.  Me and momma finally saw someone usin one of dem selfie sticks (we had seen bout dem on TV nut nefur in person).  And it wuz even goofier dan it sounded.  Everybody just needs to travel wif a personal photographer like me.

Like Alabamans, us terrierists dare to defend our rights too.  Don't mess wif us!

I's serious there!  BOL!

We crossed Mo-beel Bay again and da water wuz really blue.

I guess dey even know how pawsome Texas are in Mo-beel.

Den we went to Miss-Is-Yippy.  I can't believe dey named a whole state after me.  BOL BOL!

We saw Mississippi Burnin, and I ain't talkin bout no movie bout da murder of civil rights workers.

Everyone had to stop and stare.

Maybe it are just dat I are from Texas, but I has seen more impressive smoke comin off da grill when we is BBQin.  BOL!!

Or maybe it are dat I lived in southern California and wildfires aren't dat eggcitin unless da flames are actually crossin da highway.  And den, everybody knows to drive FAST, not stop and stare.

Anyways, da fire, which were not so eggcitin, made da trip through Miss-Is-Yippy take longer dan it shoulda.

Next up wuz Loozy-ana.

Luckily, we wuz about to cross dat Miss-Is-Yippy River a lot quicker dan last time.

Wow, dat are one big boat!

I bet dere wuz gators in da Atchafalaya Swamp. (try sayin dat three times fast.  Or three times at all).

Da mommas grabbed some crawfish et-too-fay and Pray-Zhuns in Lafayette.

I's surprised my momma stopped eatin long enuf to take a picture.  Finley tried yippin for some, but it didn't work.  We did get Texas Toothpicks though.

We saw a real pretty sunset on da way to da hotel in Alexandria.

Dis mornin, me and Finley wuz ready to get on da road and get home!

Ok, maybe I wuz ready for anudder hour of sleep, BOL!

Momma and me matched again - well duh, it are game day and we always match den.

Travelin are fun, but dere are nowhere like da Lone Star State.

We posed here almost four and half years ago too.

Ok, our ears may be floppier (I has developed a lil aural hematoma dat are makin my ear floppy like Finley's - it are even da same ear).  One of us may be a lil balder (Finley and her aller-jeez).  And da udder of us may be a lil gimiper and less able to stand (dat are me).  But we is still here, still goin strong.  And I think we is pretty good shape for da shape we is in.

Yup, dere are no place like Texas.

And dem six flags ya's heard bout??  It are not just an amoosement park either.  It are history and us Texans are proud of ours.

Well, it are almost time for my football game, plus I also are watchin da Longhorns wif Finley.  So Hook 'em Horns and Go Bruins!
