We finally got our mom to set it up! Yay, us! We made her feel
guilty about LEAVING us while she and dad R-U-N-N-O-F-T to Austin for
the weekend (even though they left us at the coolest place ever, of which Josie is the spokesdog...go to their website and watch the pictures change and you'll see what we mean.)
So now we have a blog! Woot!
We are Josie and Boudreaux, in case you didn't know. We are Maltese,
if you please. That means we are the best kind of dogs. We are VERY
FUNNY and we like to eat dog treats.
This is a picture of us at Home Depot. We love to ride in the cart!!
We will write more later. Right now we have to go bark at all the
people walking by our house, which is a lot. It keeps us busy.
We amaze our mom all the time at how we are both Maltese dogs but we have SUCH different personalities. Like for instance....
**Our mom likes to take us for walks, and we both like it too. We have different approaches to getting ready for walks, though.
Josie: "Yay! Yay! Did you say walkies!? Yay! Let's go! Woohoo!
Here I am, here I am, I'm holding still, put the leash on me, let's
GO!" (you may wish to read in Tigger voice to get approximate idea)
Boudreaux: "Oh, I dunno. Maybe not right now, ok? I'm just not sure
if I'm up to it. I'm just going to lie down over here 2 feet from you
and that leash, ok? Oh, really? I have to come over there? Well, you
can drag me by my leg. Ok, you're going to pick me up and put it on?
Well, I have to get all LIMP then like a big noodle." (Eeyore voice is
most appropriate for this character!)
We both like the walkies once we get going.
**Greeting our people: We both come running, but:
Josie: "I like to BARK. Hello! Hello! Hello! Hello!"
Boudreaux: "I'll just stand up on my back legs and put my paws on your leg. (You should pet me then.)"
**Being picked up:
Josie: "I like it! I'll help you! Then I'll lick your whole face!"
Boudreaux: "Uh, maybe....I need to go limp now. Darn, did you still pick me up? Well then, let me smell your breath."
**Sleeping (we both sleep on the bed with our folks. We have little dog stairs to get up and down on):
Josie: "I'm going to curl up right here all snuggly in a ball. Right in mom's armpit.
Boudreaux: "I need my SPACE! I like to lie on my back with all my paws stuck straight out, like Superman dog!"
We hope you have a good weekend! Mom has lots to do but we hope she will play with us in the front yard.
Ugh. This morning we had baths. We do not like baths.
Our dad usually does the bathing but he didn't today, Mom did it.
It started because Mom was in the hot tub with her hurting neck this
morning. Then the BIG thunder and lightning came! I wanted to get in
the tub to be near her because I am afraid of those boom booms. So she
let me. Then I had to have the bath to get the chlorine out of my
Mom bathes us with flea soap (for fleas), blue soap (for whiteness -
this makes no sense) and conditioner. We have to get wet THREE WHOLE
TIMES YUCK. :P
Then Mom dries us with a towel and Dad dries us with the hair dryer.
Billy, our bookkeeper person, comes in and says that we are the most spoiled dogs ever. What's his point?
But Mom let us into the yard. And Brandon had just sprayed...straight Malathion in the yard.
We don't know what that is but it must be bad, because Mom and Dad got VERY MAD AT HIM.
and WE had to have the baths! What's that about, hey? Bathe him, that's it!
Doesn't he look like he could use a bath?
He's so "emo," whatever that means. Mom says to remember that he's just a puppy still. Humph.
Anyway, Mom gave us extra treats. Here is Josie giving hers to her boyfriend dog:
Did you know that Mom went to City by the Sea to see Auntie Songbird
and didn't take us? She told us we should be glad; there were some
dachsunds in the airport that were in carry cases and they were sad.
And on her way there, she said, there were 2 dogs that had to fly UNDER
THE PLANE and they were lost for a whole day! Puppies! We think that's
dog abuse and Mom does, too.
She had a great time walking in the woods with Sam Dog and his mama
when she went to Maine, and she wondered why WE never walk in the
woods. Then she realized: there aren't a lot of woods around here! We
like the sidewalk and the park, but in the summertime it is hot on our
feets, and we aren't good at hikey walking through grass. Our legs are
not long, so a path is best.
She grew up in the Piney Woods, where there are lots of foresty places. But this part of Texas is called the Blackland Prairie. There are trees here, but not so many or so woodsy. And most of them are planted by people, not growed by God.
So today we went looking for a new woods, or what she calls "a
reasonable facsimile." (But we didn't send a fax to anyone. I'm just
There is a place across the highway called "the duck pond" that used
to be on a golf course owned by UNT. Now they have built buildings on
it, and there's no more golf, but the pond and the ducks are still
there. And big turtles! The grass is pretty short and not too
We walked all around and smelled everything, and we saw ducks (don't
tell them but we think they are VERY funny looking!). Mom says some
dogs bark at ducks, but we are not so rude, or maybe I mean so stupid:
they are a lot taller than we are!
And Josie went swimming!
She likes that water stuff. Not me! No swimming, no way, no how!
Ha ha, she had to take a bath after that. But she likes water, right? Maybe not bath water.
Our Gran and Granddad are coming this afternoon! We can't wait!
