Where's my food?

ACK! What the??? Is that all the food yur giving me? Where's the rest of it? I'm gonna starve with those puny portions. Look at me. I'm shrinking already! I think I'm going to be protesting loudly just when you least expect it. Yeah. Some surprise packages might be a good idea too. And where's my Tem-tay-shuns? I'm not liking this at all. I might have to put the bitey on somefing.

v.e.t. visit

Today we went to the v.e.t. fur our annual checkup. Here we are afore we wented to see the v.e.t. lady. Angie said that box am too big for her. Plus I guess she can't read acoz that's my box and it has my last name on it.

This am Angie's box that I had to check out fur her. This box is too small for me. She has to go in this box coz she tries to claw her way out of the ofur one and makes her nails bleed.

Finally I got Angie outta the way and here I am waiting patiently. My box is just the right size. Mommy efun putted my favrit leezard in wif me to play wif on the way there. We already asked afore bout getting our vaccinations and thanks to you all Mommy said no to the v.e.t. lady when she was getting ready to gived us the FVRCP shot. The v.e.t. lady said that Mom must read the internet to know bout getting the rabies shot in our rear leg too. But I has to go on a mini diet cuz I weigh 13-1/2 lbs. Mommy doesn't want to worry bout die-abeet-ees eifur. Nasty cancer related vaccinations that makes yur leg get cutted off or worse are bad enuf! I guess that means no more eating half of Angie's food.

Then on the way back from the vet Daddy stopped to feed the metal monster we was riding in. I gotted to look out the window and I saw an efun bigger metal monster go by! Mom says it was a train. My first train. How aciting!

Wide Body Wednesday

My picshur could have been on Tummy Tuesday but we opted for wide body Wednesday instead. This is mine comfortable sofa. All mine. I can be as wide body as I want on it. Mom says I'm eating way too much. Well she feeds me then she gives me more food. The ofur night we efun had a taste of some vishhus deer that the neighbor hunted and gave us. The humans ated so much of it that there was hardly any left fur us. It was really good though, efun better than stinky goodness.

Flash back

We has something we want to ask you all about but first we have to tell you the story about about Mom's cat from before, Tiger. Tiger was a big boy as you can see. He was Mom's first and special puddin. Since he was with her from when she was first out on her own they went through a lot of growing up together and had a special bond. Tiger was like her baby and he only liked her (and that's the way she liked it coz he was her very own and she didn't have to SHARE him with anyone, 'cept the other man from before). He was pretty much scared of efurryone else. She doesn't mind sharing us though coz we are such nice puddins, hee hee.

Now comes the scary part and something we want to ask you all a question about. You see, Tiger ended up with a viscious vaccine-induced cancer called malignant lymphoma. The tumor started right at the injection site on the back of his neck where they used to give the vaccinations. Now they're supposed to give them further down from yur neck so in case you get this cancer they can chop yur leg off - real smart huh? (oh yeah stupid v.e.t. lose a leg instead of sticking the sticky thing up yur... oops, sorry Mom). Anyway, Tiger had a big growth that the v.e.t. thought was a cyst and then they surgically tried to remove it. It was too late because it was so big it had spread all around his neck. After the surgery in the next couple months all little cancer growths popped up all around his neck. It didn't take too long before he was gone. So, Mom is very nervous about going to the v.e.t. to get us our rabies shots because they will want to give us the other bad vaccination too. She doesn't want us to have anything other than what the stupid State requires by law which is even more stupid because we are not allowed to wander outside! The question is, have any of you told your v.e.t. you don't want the vaccine shot (FVRCP)? If so, did the v.e.t. give you a hassle about it? We don't want any sticky thing anywhere. We're scared.

Chimney Sweep

Well the door to the fire box was open. I just had to go in there to see what was in there. It's my job to check efurrything out. It's a dirty job but someone has to do it. Getting ash smudgies on me just adds to my charm.

Efurryone sing along:

Chim chiminey
Chim chiminey
Chim chim cher-ee!
A sweep is as lucky
As lucky can be

Chim chiminey
Chim chiminey
Chim chim cher-oo!
Good luck will rub off when
I shake 'ands with you
Or blow me a kiss
And that's lucky too

Now as the ladder of life
'As been strung
You may think a sweep's
On the bottommost rung

Though I spends me time
In the ashes and soot
In this 'ole wide world
There's no 'appier bloke

Up where the smoke is
All billered and curled
'Tween pavement and stars
Is the chimney sweep world

When the's 'ardly no day
Nor 'ardly no night
There's things 'alf in shadow
And 'alf way in light
On the roof tops of London
Coo, what a sight!

I choose me bristles with pride
Yes, I do
A broom for the shaft
And a broom for the flume

Though I'm covered with soot
From me 'ead to me toes
A sweep knows 'e's welcome
Wherever 'e goes

Chim chiminey
Chim chiminey
Chim chim cher-ee!
When you're with a sweep
You're in glad company

No where is there
A more 'appier crew
Than them wot sings
"Chim chim cher-ee
Chim cher-oo!"
On the chim chiminey
Chim chim cher-ee
Chim cher-oo!
