Foot Surgery

Foot Surgery
Originally uploaded by NmB Photography.
Something weird is going on. Mom has been home since about noon yesterday. They left me out of the crate and took off for the hospital cause she had to have surgery on her foot. When they came home, they found I had torn up some papers (as usual). She has to lay on the couch for a few days so she took a BUNCH of pictures of me at my post - guarding the backyard.

Bad Law in China

Have you read about the horrors that are happening to dogs in some Chinese provinces? The government has initiated a one-dog rule due to an increase in rabies cases. Only 3% of dogs in China are vaccinated for rabies.

Here's the story in Yahoo. Dog owners like Loke, in the story, have been scrambling to hide their pets in the face of a new crackdown which allows only one dog per household and bans breeds taller than 14 inches. In our newspaper, on Wednesday, a Fox Terrier named Ding Ding was included with the story. If you play the Yahoo slide show you will see three photos of Ding Ding (numbers 23, 24 and 25). We feel so bad for those owners that have to give away the pets that they love, or worse, see them taken by the police.

New Toy

Thought you might like to see me silence this new toy. It took me 12 minutes!

Dad told Mom a funny story when she got home from work today. They have been leaving my crate door open and I've been pretty darn good. In fact, when they get home they find me sitting inside my crate with my tail between my legs. So, Dad decided to surprise me by not opening the garage door when he got home. Instead, he snuck around to the back of the house and caught me laying on my footstool. Boy, was I busted. He's almost as sneaky as I am!

I had a brand new experience yesterday - I got a ham bone! They never shared their bones with me before, just toast, cereal, dry-roasted peanuts, popcorn, cookies, etc. Bones are the best! I love to chew on things more than anything else and this really puts my big teeth to the test. How about you guys - do you get to chew on real, meat bones??

Last Weekend

We went to Iowa City last weekend and though I've matured in many ways, I still barf in the car. Mom thinks I'm pretty good to always barf into a bag for her, though.

This is a picture of Erin in my crate and Kelby trying to quick lock her in. She says my name so beautifully - it's music to my ears.

Last week I had to go to my Dr's office and get four shots -- YIKES! We found out that I gained 6 oz so I'm almost 19 pounds, now. Dr Heitzman said I'm very muscular ... that's a Wire Fox Terrier, for you! We're hunks.

Hey, where did my profile picture disappear to??? Mom will have to fix that right away.
