Cats Turn Into Heating Pads

February 16, 2014

It’s been cold! My mom has tried to draft me into service as a heating pad but I have steadily refused. It is beneath my dignity as a dog. Fortunately the cats have stepped up. Creampuff likes to create a little cat cave under the blankets. She has a true gift for finding the coziest […]

OK, so I’m a certified snow dog! I love walking through the snow. My fur is thick so my mom hasn’t bought me a coat and so far I’m doing just fine. I love walking on snow. In the city everything piles up on the sidewalks. My mom, on the other hand, is not a […]

“Rescued a human today … “

January 28, 2014

My mom found this story online. She has really gotten into animal rescue. We now sneer at well-meaning people who actually buy dogs. We become incensed when people fail to spay or neuter. Then my mom found this story which makes her melt. Um, mom, this blog is supposed to be about ME! Yes, I […]

September 29, 2013

My mom and I are both exhausted. Yesterday she helped out at the animal shelter. One volunteer was photographing dogs; her job was to help bring the dogs out of their cages to be photographed.

Not much time to write

September 27, 2013

My mom hasn’t been helping me write my blog lately. For one thing, I’m getting older and more tired. I sleep more. My mom feels sad when she sees me sleeping, even though she always says, “You look so beautiful when you sleep, Gracie. A tired dog is a good dog.”” And then she says, […]

Do SOMEthing, Mom!

July 19, 2013

This is The Look. I’m staring intently at my mom. She’s trying to figure out if I am saying, “Lunch! Now!” or, “Out! Now!” She usually tries “Out” first. I can’t say as I blame her. LOL.
