Ahh - The life of a dog!

I've had a great day! I've chatted with other dogs (which I never get to do at home) and I even got to play with one weird dog (he doesn't like children). And the pats, oh the pats! My boss has walked me around and chatted with people about all kinds of stuff! Why can't there be a gem festival everyday?? The people I've met have been kind and friendly and oh so willing to pat me!

My boss did good in bringing me out today! The day has been beautiful and sunny with a nice breeze! I've had bits of snacks and all sorts!

Oh what a day! I would certainly recommend going to the Emmaville GemFest again! (I'm hoping that my big biss will say yes to tomorrow being here! And maybe tomorrow the cat can come too!)

Now I'm going to go have a nap!

Have a happy waggy tailed day!


Emmaville GemFest

My boss came home late last night, complaining that she was freezing cold! She called me and chained me up on the veranda... I thought I was in trouble, but as it turned out - she wanted me to be dry!

This morning when she came out, she put my harness on and my halti and loaded me into the car!

The cat wanted to come too! But the boss said he could stay home!

So here I am at Emmaville GemFest with my boss and the little boss and Lady Tress (who works at Mystical-Spirit)! I've seen several dogs and had lots and lots of pats! And my little boss is learning to walk me! My boss keeps telling my little boss that she isn't supposed to let me eat anything I find! :( Nor is she allowed to allow me to go wherever I want or tangle around tables or people! :( But I'm out and about and happy!

Have a happy waggy tailed day!

I'm gonna be famous!!

Woof Woof!

I just heard the news!! My boss is teaching my little boss how to be a professional photographer! And I'm the star subject for practice pet shots!! :)

Ooh do I pose on my back, or do I sit nicely, or... I know... I coat myself in grass!! That's always a good one! I can sit with my tongue hanging out! Hmmm - left side, right side or straight out front - too many decisions!

Oh drat - That CAT has just informed me that he is the star pet! Why does he have to be in front of the cameras??

Anyway - I get to have more of my handsome face on TigerEye Freelance Photography and on the blog that goes with it! I'm so excited, I just have to dance around and wag my butt!! It's going to be so much fun! Two lenses to lick instead of just one! Oooh I hope the little bosses camera tastes good! (Technically I'm not allowed to lick the bosses camera - but that doesn't stop me from trying!!)

I'm gonna be famous!! I'm gonna be famous!! I'm gonna be famous!! :) Cant sleep now - must run around the yard like a mad thing!!

Hope you have a happy waggy tailed day! And thanks for dropping by! :)

That CAT

Hmrph... That cat just stepped out to rub in that his blog is more popular than mine! What does he do? He comes barreling out the back door and gives me a hug around the neck with teeth and claws! So much for a good day

Here I was minding my own business, trying to think about what I was going to share next when he comes out with this!! Arrgh...

Is it because he is cute and fluffy? I can look cute too!! I'm not so fluffy as him! My boss also tells me I stink - maybe thats the problem - maybe I do need a bath after all!!

I guess I'll just have to learn to be smart and handsome!

Hope you have a happy waggy tailed day! And thanks for dropping by! :)

Hello again!

I managed to sneak back in and found my bosses computer unattended with its internet connection on so I decided I'd tell you about the CAT!

It all started a little over a year ago...

My boss, the Big Boss and the Little boss all went of to church as they normally do! But this particular day was different! Although I didn't know it until they came home!

It took my boss a little while to get out of the car. Then I noticed something small and fluffy in her hands! For a half a second (or was it longer??) I thought she had brought me a toy! But no... I wasn't introduced to the new comer for a few days! Then I was invited inside and well... There it was - a small black fluffy cat! I was told I wasn't allowed to touch it! I only wanted to play with it! It didn't want to play with me and I was soon sent back outside!

A few days later I was invited back in to have another go at meeting the cat!

Little did I know that I was now at the bottom of the pecking order! Not that I was ever at the top! But I thought that all new animals would be lower down the chain of command than me! Boy was I wrong!

Once this kitten learned how to use its claws, it started the tradition that is now called "Oreo Bashing"! It would put its little claws into me and make little painful holes in me! And all my boss said was "get used to it, for a cat is higher up the chain of command than a dog!"

And that is how it's been since! The cat sleeps inside and (if he speaks the truth) right next to my boss! On her pillow and sometimes curled up snug and warm under her blankets!

I must admit, a couple of months back I had a private laugh... The cat took a trip to the vet and was a little forgetful - he left his balls behind! But I don't dare tease him about it - his teeth and claws are very sharp!

I get the full run of the yard but the cat - he can only go as far as his lead! He wears a harness similar to the one I get to wear in the car - but this one is a lot smaller and red! It has a lead attached to it so he cant go far!

Since being here he's killed several skinks and one bird! So he is not allowed to wander! My boss doesn't like it when either of us kill animals. I have been put on my chain because I kill a lizard! And I've killed two birds. Sometimes I am a naughty dog! My boss doesn't yell at the cat like she yells at me! But then, I don't get offended like the cat does!

On the whole, the cat is a good play mate! He just forgets that I am sensitive! His claws hurt!

He bit me on the tail once - it hurt so much that I couldn't wag my tail! My boss just told me it was my own fault for trying to squish the cat! He looked like a comfy seat! Whats so wrong with wanting to park my butt on something soft and fluffy??

One really really good think about having a cat... He has a toilet in the house - a black container that he uses... It gets emptied every two days... And every two days I get to enjoy kitty truffles! My boss says its a disgusting habit and that I am feral, but I think that they are really yummy and nutritious!

My boss has gone to the extreme of putting up this electric fence around her garden where the kitty truffles get deposited! But I know how to get past that - I wait until after dark and then raid the garden! I know that I am dis-respecting my bosses rules and it upsets her greatly to see me in her garden, but kitty truffles are just soooooo yummy! And I cant get enough of them! I sometimes wish my boss would get a second cat!

Another story about how the cat treats me:
The entire family was down the back yard and I was on on side of the vegetable garden fence and the cat was on the other side... The cat decided that I needed to be on the same side of the fence as he was and so he decided that he would try and pull me through the fence! It hurt like crazy and I got yelled at for barking at him! That cat gets away with all kinds of stuff!

I guess I'm stuck with the cat until either him or I die!

It's not all bad with the cat! We do go skink hunting together! And our last skink get rescued by my boss and both the cat and I got growled at! Oh well, we had fun!

I'd better go - I think I can hear my boss coming back...

Hope you have a happy waggy tailed day! And thanks for dropping by! :)


Hello and Welcome

Hello and Welcome to Dogs Blog - a blog about a dog!! (me)

My name is Oreo Sea Biscuit, but my boss mostly calls me Oreo or O! She calls me a lot of other things - especially when I do something that makes her angry at me!

I am a handsome dog! Well, I like to think I am a handsome dog! My father is an American Staffordshire Terrior and my Mother (Kahlua) is a Labrador x Golden Retriever! So I am definitely a very handsome dog!

When I was about 8 months old, my boss, took me for a ride in the car! I expecting to go to some new place where I could run around and explore - but it was just the vet! Well aside from having needles shoved in me and a thermometer shoved up you don't wanna know where, she tells the vet to steal my balls! :( And now my boss teases me that I went to the vet and forgot my balls!

I was top puppy of nine! I say I was top puppy cause my boss begged and pleaded with my other boss (The Big Boss) to keep me! And I was kept! However a few months after my brothers and sisters went to a new home, my mother and aunt dragged me under the fence and tangled the three of us around something large in the neighbours yard! My boss was out at the time! But when she got home she came and rescued me and gave me hugs and a huge bucket of water! It wasn't long after that that my mother and aunt were packed up and sent away! Forever!

I wasn't even slightly sad! Although I do miss the three way dog fights! Not that my boss liked the three of us fighting! We never really hurt each other - except when we smashed into each other, and mostly it was my mother who went flying through the air!

My mother wasn't a very good mother! My boss would have to come out once a day when we were all small helpless puppies and hold my mother down long enough for us puppies to get a drink! I think my boss was glad to see my mother go to a new home!

One night I scored three dinners because my mother and my aunt had skipped out of the yard! They eventually came home and got what was left of their dinners!

I've never ran away, but I did wander up the road a bit until the Big Boss called me back! I was put on my 12m chain for a few days and have never wandered away since! But my boss still watches me!

I love being in my yard! I get fed heaps (not enough in my books, but my boss says I will get too fat if I eat much more. Apparently I'm at my optimum weight right now.). I get toys thrown for me to chase and I get taken for walks! And then there is the bones I get given!

Well, I'd better get off the computer and let the boss do some work! If she catches me inside I'll spend a few days on my chain! I'm only allowed in when I'm invited - whatever that means!

Hope you have a happy waggy tailed day! And thanks for dropping by! :)
