Hey everyone! Im offically microchipped, as of yesterday, yay! I got it done at a Recycled Arts festival at Esther Short Park in downtown Vancouver.

At first I was really scared cause the needle was HUGE! But my auntie held me while my mom took photos (thanks mom..) and the real nice lady with the needle did it and it only took a couple of seconds but ouchie man...

Heres me when it was done, I was sure glad it was done! Sure you can pet me, I like you! Despite the fact you shoved a HUGE ASS NEEDLE in my NECK!

oh well at least if I ever get separeted from my family hopefully someone will know where to find me with this thing in me. AND PHEW! It sure is HOT. Holy cow-doggies, I have no idea what to think of all this darn heat. All I know is that its making me super-uncomfortable! So I made mom got me a new toy and some Pegetables (that were on sale cause they had a hole in them, SCORE!) to make up for it hehe.

Oh, theres suppose to be thunderstorms here in the next couple of days, woo-hoo! Means extra time in my moms bed getting extra cuddles hehe... and Im also competing in the paw-limpics for roaching and sleeping!! Who else is competing?

Till next time!

Feeling better and Moms dog treat business

BTW, it says I posted this Tuesday the 24th...but I posted it TODAY which is Thursday, the 26ht.

SO! Im feeling better! Mom has been feeding me rice and gave me a tiny bit of Pepto Bismol yesterday and Im feeling better, and looking better too! And best news of poop is back to normal!!

Hey I think this photo could have gone into Deetz's scary eye photo contest, too bad its a little late hehe.

Anyway, as some of you know my momma loves to make her own homemade dog treats. Well, she was thinking about starting an online business of it kinda. What I mean by kinda is that she would sell them on a homemade only website called ''. Sounds like a fab idea to me mom! She has been working very hard recently to make some really yummy dale approved treats. She was thinking of the name "Torri's Tasty Dog Treats" - that are Pawsitively Delicious! To which they are..sometimes hehe... Anyway what do you think of that name? Is it silly? I told her something like "Gaia is a lovely, perfect dog that will eat Torri's treats anyday" but she said its too long or something. Sheesh, wheres the love mom?? Hopefully the business will be open before or around August or September so fingers crossed.

She says she wants to have a small variety of treats so she doesnt get too overwhelmed with orders. Here are some with their descriptions:
  • "Good Dog" Carob Chip Cookies (Regular drop cookies made with dog-safe Carob instead of chocolate.)
  • Original Peanut Butter Biscuits The original biscuits are classic hit to the dog kingdom. Simple, but packs the punch with flavor and love. Bone or paw shaped.)
  • Dipped Rawhide Sticks Sticks (Rawhide sticks dipped in carob, white chocolate, and peanut butter frosting. Optional: Sprinkled with bacon bits.)
  • Veggie & Cheese Terrier Tea Cakes (A personal favorite to my dogs, made with extra cheddar cheese and fresh carrots. 3 sizes- small, medium or large.)
  • Bad Breath Banishers (Let these cookies chase away your dogs’ bad breath with fresh spearmint right out of my garden. Spearmint is also a natural calming herb for your dogs’ stomach. Baked to pawfection and topped with a carob mint. 3 sizes-small, medium or large.)

And probably only 1 or 2 more. Ill keep you all posted on it, until next time!

Not feeling so good...

Hey everyone, today I am not feeling very good. Ive had the "hershey squirts" over the past 2 days and Im not sure why. Momma doesnt have a clue either. I was feeling fine and normal yesterday like a normal puppy should be running around crazily and wagging my little nub for a tail but today let me tell you, all I want to do is sleep! I woke mom up this morning and she let me sleep with her on her bed with her for a bit but I kept groaing so she got worried. She gave me some rice with my breakfast kibble but I just didnt feel like eating it. I dont think Ive eaten anything bad cat food, no dirt, no...oh wait I did eat a bug last night, but I dont think that could be it. Mom recently switched my food over to Blue Buffalo but she had been mixing it with my old food for 2 weeks so its not like I wasnt used to it. Maybe it could be too much for my stomach but it tastes fantastic! One time yesterday I did have a normal poopy but that was it. Moms been making sure I drink lotsa fresh water so I hope I feel better soon. I think mom is gonna take me to the vet if I keep this up. I dont really like the vet but if it makes me get better then I guess Ill do it. No pictures today either sorry, just not feeling upto it.

Trip to Merwin Lake

Hey everyone! in spite of the warm and beautiful weather, mom thought she and her sister would take me down to a lake not too far from us. The lake is actually part of a huge dam!

Alright, Ill stay on the leash even though theres no one here..

Oh come on! Well Im sure no one will mind, Im cute anyway hehe. Oh! And Im wearing my "Adventure-Dale Bandana"! I can only wear it when Im on exciting adventures.

Just take a look at that! Oh its sooo pretty!

So we got down to the beach and Ive never been in any other water than bath water..

Mom had to chuck a stick in the water to get me in.

BRRR! Ok, thats enough water for me. Lets go on a hike!

There was all sorts of exciting smells and sights.

Come on mom! Look we match!

After that, I wanted to go back to the lake

Thats it for now! Until next time :)

Computer Difficulties...and bubbles!

Ok, so recently modern technology has been lagging and been really ticking me off! For some odd reason sometimes when I go to comment on all your blogs it freaking says its having 'technical difficulties' (my ass!) and earases all that I have commented on for you guys. So I am apologizing now, thats why Ive been somewhat absent on here.. hopefully itll clear up soon and if not, Ill have to find some way around it to comment on your blogs. Just thought Id let you all know why Ive been somewhat absent around here.

And momma bought me a fantastical gift, doggy-safe bubbles! And theyre in a shape of a bone and they smell like peanut butter (this is a direct gift from doggy heaven!).

sorry no action shots, they all turned out too blurry!

New friend April

Hey everyone! Yesterday my mom had a bridal party to go to. Little did we know there would be other doggies there too!

Meet April. April is a black standard size poodle. (Much like Sir-Sparky!)

At first she ran upto me and scared the buh-jesus outta me, but she let me sniff her and instantly became pals! Momma just loved her coat, it was all nice and curley! Just like mine will be someday. She was even wearing my favorite color; purple!

Pretty soon we had to go, cause I was hungry and needed a nap! hehe..bye April!

Oh look!! You can also see where Im losing my black and more of my red/tan is coming in just on my left shoulder.

So anyday now Im expecting a package from Stanley and Stella from the international goody exchange, and Ive got some very special gifts for Neko going in the mail soon, oh how Id love to show you all what I got but I know my mom would kill me. Plus we sure wouldnt want to ruin a really good surprise.

Thats it for now!!
