Cutest Play Dead

Saw this on a TV program sometime ago and Mommy loved it! Then today saw it again as posted by from sophie's view  and Mommy told me I must post it too so that more may view it:

Now, Mommy wants me to confess.  That I know absolutely No tricks at all!! Daddy says I am stupid (that I can't even learn the simplest "Give Me 5" aka "Paw-Paw" and that I only know how to eat, sleep and LICK!) but Mommy says I am smart (that I refuse to learn something useless to me except for entertaining humans).

Who cares about tricks? Duh!

Stylish Blogger Award

I am so excited! This is my first time EVER receiving an award!! Actually I got 2 of the same award BOL....A BIG thank you to Downunder Daisy and I am Santa, a Miniature Schnauzer who gave me the award! 

I am supposed to tell you 7 things about myself and then pass on the award to other blogger friends.  Perhaps you have heard some of the things before but may be so long ago that it is okay for me to repeat here ^_^ :

1.     As we stay in (high rise) apartment, none of our furnitures are near/next to the windows for MY safety even though the windows are all grilled up.  But I love to look outside the windows sometime. So what I do is:

  • jump up to the nearest sofa, 
  • look at Mommy and whine a bit, 
  • then stand with my front paws up on the sofa armrest facing the window,  
  • Mommy or Daddy gets my message and:

 (neighbour: "Is that a spiderdog???!!")

2.   I am scared of lots of things, for example umbrellas (open and closed), plastic bottles, soft type of doggie carriers/bags (I dare not go in them!) etc etc...AND not to forget the "lamp shade":

 Help! I am not a bulb! Why put me in a lamp shade???

3.   I have separation anxiety.  Mommy video taped me before and saw that I would sit down for few seconds then paced around the room/house restlessly.  She believes that I behave this way throughout the whole duration that I am home alone! 

Above pic was the first video they took when I was alone.  Nope, I wasn't watching TV ...it wasn't even turned on. I was looking high and low for Mommy. I howled and howled ... Now we have another sofa already and its design does not allow me to pull the above stunt anymore.

4.   See that something below the sofa? That was a Kong toy.  Mommy is thankful that I LOVE FOOD above any other things!  She stuffs my Kongs with food and leave them in the kitchen in order to keep me there while she quickly leaves the house.  However, my anxiety kicks in once I am done with the Kongs and find Mommy missing! :(

5.   By now you would have noticed that I wear clothes most of the time.  The reason is because of my skin problems, not vanity.  Since late puppyhood, I have been plagued with pimply skin, rashes, fungus infection...which makes me itch and scratchy!  So by wearing clothes, it helps to protect my skin from being scratched red/raw! (We have gone through food elimination, eaten raw, tried vegetarian (resulting in heaps of poo!) and till now, only dry food no treats. Still nothing works!) *cry*

6.   Licking is my best hobby!  I lick the tiled floor, the bed(sheet), the sofa, my paws, mommy's legs, daddy's legs, daddy's face, my cushion cover...and the list goes on.  

7.   I bark at 'silly' things! I bark when:
  • daddy gets out from shower;
  • there's sound outside our door;
  • I am on my walks - bark at boisterous children, adults carrying opened umbrellas or wearing caps or wearing glasses, some things along my familiar route which were not previously there, a big banner etc etc...but sometimes I do not bark at all when passing by the above-said people. Strange indeed but don't ask me why! :P

Now, I am passing the award to:
  1. from sophie's view
  2. Paw Steps to Happiness
  3. My three boys and a bird dog
  4. The World According to Lexi

Something Is Missing

Can you spot what is missing from the photos below?

Scroll down only when you're ready for the answer! ^_^



The sleeve has gone down to my armpit! It happens most of the time after my rolling sessions. Sleeveless, short-sleeves don't matter and it's ALWAYS this same arm's! BOL...

More proof:

Toilet Upgrade


 (yes! I pee with one hind leg lifted. Used to pee like a bitch girl but I'm a MAN now BOL!)

Made a U-turn and had my paws hands and feet auto-wiped! Kudos to Mommy's bright idea with the rug.

Upgraded to pee tray! It wasn't a successful switch upgrade on the 1st try (another tray) as I simply refused to step up onto the tray; I didn't pee for long hours so Mommy relented as she worried I might burst my bladder! Mommy didn't give up and ... voila!

No need to wipe hands nor feet now! *proud*

PeeS: I am an indoor doggie.  We do not have our own backyard or garden like most of you do as we stay in an apartment, so Mommy figured it is easier for all of us if I do my business indoors. Anytime anywhere any weather!

Rolling Good Time

PeeS:  My doggie bed is "empty" as Mommy had put the 'mattress' cover to wash. 

My previous rolling episode caught on tape can be re-lived here! ^_^

After Chomp Chomp

What next after chomp chomp??? Desserts? 

I'm a weirdo as I've got weird habits! I will 'mop' (aka LICK) the floor around the house, mostly living room. Mommy will shout from the kitchen sink (washing my bowl from the meal) warning me not to lick. But she'll always find me like this below, proof that I had turned a deaf ear to her warnings!!

I am hereby pronounced GUILTY.

Chomp Chomp
