Momma Got Skinny!

Hi again, pals!  Zoe made a comment about how skinny Momma looks now, and Momma forgot that not all of you pups are on the Book of Faces.  She posted this picture there last month.

"The picture of me on the left is exactly one year ago today (June 27). The one on the right is from today (June 27). Amazing what a difference a year makes!"
Momma says the doctor wants her to lose a little more weight to help with the sugarbetes.  But she's gonna lose more than that cause she says she might as well keep going! 

I'm Going on Vacation!

I'm going on vacation, pals!  Momma and daddy are going to the DC of Washington for a few days to do some boring stuff, like looking at a bunch of stuff behind glass.  Well, *I* think that's boring, but Momma is pretty much crawling out of her skin cause she's so excited.  She's a bit of a nerd.  But she gets to meet a few Dogster pals while she's down there!  She's gonna meet Lacey's Momma and the Four Dachshunds of the Apocalypse's Momma and Daddy for dinner one night!  Lucky!  She might even get to meet the 4 DoA pups!! 

And guess what else!  The other day, she got to meet Lexie and Buddy's Momma!  She was here in the Pittsburgh of PA place for some meetings, so Momma took her to OUR place where you look at stuff behind glass.  I told you, Momma's a nerd.  But anyway, she had LOTS of fun with Mrs. Lexie and Buddy!  And she brought me a present, too, so she's a-ok in MY book!

First Momma took her to Primanti Brothers.  They put EVERYTHING on the sandwich, including French Fries and coleslaw!  Mrs Lexie and Buddy got a fried bologna sandwich, which is pretty common here.  Momma says if you ever come to the Pittsburgh of PA place, you HAVE to eat at Primanti Brothers.  It's the law.  Primanti Bros. Restaurants - A Pittsburgh Tradition

Momma and Mrs. Lexie and Buddy then went to the boring place, called Carnegie Museum.  Momma says this is in the Hall of Architecture.  See.  Boring.
Momma was trying to measure a dinosaur bone with her arms but it was too big.  I sure would like to chew on that.
Mrs. Lexie and Buddy bought me a Mr. Bill doll that says "Oh noooooooooooooo!" when you bite his belly!!  I beat him up real good.
And then I shook shook SHOOK him like crazy!
And then I feel asleep while snuggling him.  He's a great pal.
Well, pals, I'm off to pack my bag to go stay at Grammy's house!  I might even get to see cousin Tuna while I'm there!  See ya later, pals!

Tiny Tuna! And ACK Fireworks!!

Did all my pals survive the fireworks yesterday?  I did.  But barely.  I spent most of my night crammed behind the couch.  Momma said she didn't even know I could fit back there BOL!

In other news, I got to meet my new cousin, Tuna!  He's awfully small...and cute.  And VERY playful.  Momma had to hold me back a few times cause I was getting a little too rough with him, but we were having fun, chasing and barking at each other!

"What is this thing?"

*sniff sniff* "It smells like a dog."

"Natalie, is that a dog?"

*sniff sniff* "It's a dog!"

"Hey!  That's MY lambie doll!!  Well, ok...I guess you can play with him..."

"I sniff you, and you sniff me.  OK, we can be friends!"

"Tuna doesn't know how to sit still for pictures just yet.  I have a lot to teach him."
This was a few days ago, but I got to see him again today at Grammy's house cause Monday is Momma's 37472467328687 birthday and the family all got together to play and sing and give out the presents.  He was SUPER playful today and kept puppy bowing at me and barking and trying to play.  I tried to tell him to calm down a little bit, but he's still a puppy, so he didn't listen.  He just barked himself to sleep.  Momma says she wishes I would go to sleep instead of barking.  Hmph.  And woof.

2. Do you like your furblings if you have any? I don't have any, but I've got cousins that I love!  Tuna is my newest cousin, he's great!  Me and Winnie don't get along very well, she's afraid of me.  Thumper is kinda my Uncle, but I'm older than him.  We play a LOT.  I met Lycan (a German Shepherd) one time when he was a puppy.  I owned him.  But Momma says he's a lot bigger now and I'd probably be scared.  Hmph.
3. What do you do when the phone rings?  Nothing...but when the doorbell rings LOOK OUT!!
4. Do you evfur howl? No, I mostly just bark. And bark. And bark.  WOOF!
5. Do you dream?  I was dreaming just last night!  My bag legs were kicking and I was whimpering.  Momma and Daddy think I was dreaming about chasing the evil bunnies that live in our yard!  BOL!
6. Who is your fave unfur in your furmily, your Mom, your Dad, or an unfurbling?( or someone else?) I'm more of a Momma's boy, but Natalie (my Momma's niece) is my BFF and F and F and F!
7. Did you evfur get in trouble using your teeth?  I used to a LOT when I was a young pup.  I would chew up Momma's books and flip flops like it was my job!  And I used to bite Daddy so much he had to put apple bitter spray on his hands to make me stop!  I'm a big boy now, I rarely use my teeth except to eat!
8. Where is your fave place to go to visit?  Oh boy I LOVE to visit!  I like visiting both Grammy's houses for different reasons!  Grammy Hunter has Thumper, so I like to go there and play!  And Grammy DeLuca has a HUGE back yard that gets all kinds of critters in it and makes for some good sniffing!  Plus Pap Pap D gives the best ear rubs!
9. Are you allowed to run free anywhere?  No...Momma says I have an "impulse control problem" and I would run off without a thought.  I used to be able to run in the backyard, but Daddy busted one of the fences and now there's a big hole there.
10. Do you sleep curled up in a ball, or stretched out?  When I'm at the top of the bed I curl into a schnauzer ball.  When I sleep at the foot of the bed I stretch out!

I would love it if ANY of my pals would answer my questions, cause I nominate ALL of you BOL!!
