it's edgar's mum here...there is terrible news in the dog blogging community today and i just can't get it out of my head. i had never read their blog, but saw a post on another...the
houston pittie pack. their home was destroyed in a fire. all of the humans got out safely and two of their dogs...but they were unable to save the remaining 5 dogs. i just can't imagine what they must be going through. mayzie and her peeps set up a way to help...if you would like to pitch in please visit her blog here
thanks everyone - and give your furry friends some extra love tonight...

the indignity...

oh dear me...can everyone see my paw-paw? do you know what she did to me? well...i have a paw pad that a few months ago was all icky and infected (mum thinks maybe i stepped on a small shard of glass from all those broken wine glasses mentioned in my previous post) but i had to go to the vet and she wrapped it all up and i had to take pills...

well this morning i was licking and licking my paw paw and mum took a look at it and there's a small part that is red again. so she took one of her running socks and put it over my paw paw! and then - wrapped masking tape around it!! can you believe the nerve? it looks so foolish for a scottie such as myself to have an old gym sock taped around his paw paw! don't you think? i hope no one notices...

a tribute my friend lucas

that big guy right there is lucas - he's 6 months younger than me, and a yellow labrador retriever - and he's my best freind. seriously, like my brother from another mother. his mum and my mum are real good friends too. we would all go for long walks together almost every day - and even with my short little leggies, i could keep up with lukey. there was one time when there was a duck in the little pond at the gardens and he jumped right in to get it...not me, i hate the water!
his mum and my mum would get together and drink wine together (they lived right downstairs) and lucas would always knock over the wine glasses with his big ole tail! wine and glass everywhere! bol! and our favorite game is something mum calls "dust mop dog". we get a toy and lucas holds one end and i the other and then i would flop down frog dog style and lucas would pull me all over the living room! boy that was fun.

anyway, lucas and his mama moved away about a month ago to colorado. and gosh we sure miss them. for awhile i kept forgetting they were gone and i'd sit down in front of his door when we came in from outside, wishing i could play with him. does anybody else have a best friend? do they live close? i sure miss mine...

i'm back! my mum says we are going to try to better at this again...we'll see how she keeps that...what's that they say about the road to hell? bol.

anyway, she's back from that mayo place & says she's done with surgeries and bein sick, and i'm going to hold her to that. thanks for all your good wishes for her by the way. but look what happened while i was at my grandad's when she was gone...

i got powdered with flour by the grandbaby!! i'm a scottie - we are dignified - not to be covered in bread ingredients. she says she's not leaving me for a long long time.

we had some respite from the heat here last week, but today it's back with gusto. the heat index thingy was 105 degrees here today! bleh - it's just too hot out for anything! here is a picture of me from a snow day last winter...i am hoping it helps cool me off!
my mama would like apologize for our being absent for such a long time. she has been traveling to mayo clinic for some sickie problems she's having. she assures me it is nothing serious but would appreciate any prayers. she has to go back one more time to have some surgeries...gulp... i've been hanging with my granddad when she's gone and having the whole yard to myself, a real treat since we don't have a fence at home! mama says she missed me terribly and that i would have made her feel bunches better if i were there. to be honest though...i sorta enjoyed having some boy time with granddad. on the downside - she thinks i found some yummy poo treats in the yard and contracted...wormies! now i have to go to dr. tina's on thursday...

itchy scratches!

hi everyone - happy fourth of july weekend! my tummy is feeling much better, but now i have a bad case of the itchies...thanks to my friend stuart for posting about my little problem and thanks to everyone for their helpful suggestions. i've been getting some cheese wrapped benadryl to help with the itching and got a bath with some medicated shampoo - that was torture let me tell you! but it all seems to be helping - i'm still itchy, but i can sleep without scratching like crazy...
we hope you all have some fun at a barbeque or something! me - i'll be hanging with my grandpeeps hoping there aren't too many fireworks going off!

grrr-een part two...

sorry folks - i'm still feeling a little bit green. i've just been lying about all weekend and have nothing to report...nothing even picture worthy. my mum made those strawberry banana muffins again and i wasn't even tempted to sample one.

Friday, June 24, 2011


that's me - dressed for halloween as *super edgar*. i'm not feelin so super today :( in fact i am feeling rather green. we went to the park yesterday and i cleaned up after some picnickers and must have gotten something that wasn't so good for my tummy. mama's made me some nice rice and opened a can of some sort of scientific food for sour tummies and rumbly guts...i'll be on the mend soon. sadly - i had to stay home sick and did not get to participate in "take your dog to work day". it's okay - i don't much like going to work anyway!

public service announcement

some sad friend hazel, the olde english sheepdog, crossed over the bridge this weekend. she was just fine earlier in the day and then all of a sudden seemed to be in a lot of pain. her people rushed her to the vet and found out that her tummy got all twisted up and there was nothing they could do to help her get better. it's called bloat i think. so today's public service announcement is to make sure you and your peeps never take for granted the time we have together - take us on walkies when you don't feel up to it, let us sniff stuff even if you are in a hurry, give us lots of snuggles and never know what could happen. sorry to be such a downer, but we are kinda sad over here today...

the great muffin caper

blogland...we have a mystery on our hands! today my mama got up real early to "beat the heat" and do some baking. she made some coconut macaroons for her friend for father's day, and a beautiful strawberry pie for a bbq tonight. then she made some strawberry banana muffins for breckie...they look so pretty and delish don't they?

well...mama got one of these yummy muffins to have with her cup of coffee (in the new mug she got for *her* birthday-neat, huh?). and then she got distracted by all the cat fur bunnies tumbling around and had to go get out the little vacuum (not as evil as the big one) and then she got distracted again by the dishes she forgot to wash in the kitchen...and that's when it happened. it happened so fast i didn't even have a chance to guard her yummy just disappeared. like that. while she was in the kitchen. paper wrapper and all. i don't know what happened. you guys believe me right?

oh the horror

i'm sorry - i won't post any pictures to relive the was awful. my mama decided that my natural scottish musk was becoming offensive and declared today BATH DAY!! before i new i was plunked in the tub and covered with suds. the worst of it all was afterwards when she aimed this thing at me that sounded like the vacuum monster, but blew air out instead of sucked things in. and now i smell like oatmeal and lavender. blech!

hee hee hee

all this snow means it's too cold for my walkies - we go a few blocks and my little paw paws get so cold i can't keep them all on the ground. so i have been doing my best to help out around the house. for instance - i don't like the new place she keeps the step stool, so have been scratching at it and nosing it and crying at it all night till she moves it. and, the recycling - i have rearranged all of that in the dining room...none of the plastics were properly chewed before she put them in the bag. next i am moving on to "reorganizing" my toys. she sure hopes this cold snap ends soon! i guess she doesn't care for my brand of "helping"

snow day!

we got big snows today and mom was the only one in her office that braved the elements to get to work, so when her boss called and told her to come home she said she didn't need to be told twice! so she came home and played with me in the snow. then our neighbor vegas the viszla and her mom came outside. and then our neighbor teddy the schnauzer came out and then mom went and got lucas (my best friend) from his house...his mom was at work still. here we are all playing in the yard...

now it's time to get back indoors to dry off and get warm.

my pal...

this is a picture of me and my very, very, very best friend. his name is lucas and he lives downstairs in our building. doesn't he have the nicest smile? he and i have been friends ever since my first birthday and i am 3 1/2 now! he just had his own 3rd birthday right before christmas. he and i love to play and play. we play bitey face, and we wrestle...but my very favorite game to play is tuggy/dust-mop-dog. we get a toy and each grab an end and flip my legs out in a classic frog dog pose. then lucas pulls me around the floor - wheeee! mum says it's her favorite too cause it cleans the floor!

happy 2011

phew! my mama has been a slacker. maybe it should be her resolution to do a better job helping me blog, dontcha think? i'm just going to spend the day contemplating in my favorite spot. we rang in the new year at a people/puppy pajama pawty at our neighbors and i'm kinda tuckered out!
