4 Months Old
For some time now I've been reminding my Dad that my 4-month old picture is long overdue! I apologize to you, my patient audience, for the delay.
Here I am on September 15th (my 4 month birthday). Once again my Dad has forced me to pose next to a smelly ol' shoe.
Here I am at 3 months with the same smelly ol' shoe. This photo was actually taken at the very moment that I discovered that ol' shoes are smelly.
Here I am at 2 months with another smelly ol' shoe.

Feeling Well Again!!! and A New Home?!
Hi everyone. I'm feeling like my old self again! Thanks for all of the get well wishes that you shared with me!
I'm so excited! My Mom and Dad are looking for a new house for us to live in. They took me to see their favorite house (to get my approval---of course).
I told them that this is where my dog bed will need to go...
...and this little house in the back yard will be my dog-house!
Other than that, I don't care. Just give me a ray of sunshine to sleep in and a bowl to eat from. That's all I need... except for, of course, a room for my toys.

Sick Puppy Update
Hi everyone. Today I went home!!! Mom and Dad are still worried about me and I'm on a special diet (which means Mom is hand feeding me some really primo canned food). The best part is that I spend tonight at home with my Mom! The puppy-doctor never figured out what is wrong with me, but I feel much better today. I even get to start eating some normal puppy food!
My Daddy thinks that I just got to feeling bad because he's away on a business trip for a week and I miss him so much. He tells me that the hotel he's staying at has a puppy that works in the hotel lobby. When I heard this I was so upset that he would even look at another puppy... but than he told me that the little hotel-dog just makes him miss me even more---so I guess I'm okay with that. (The hotel-dog is named Lily, just like my cousin)!
When my Mom checked into the vet yesterday I had lost lots of weight (almost 10 ounces in four days---and I'm barely 8 pounds), but now I'm back to my old weight. Mom says I'm not out of the woods yet, but things are looking real good. I've got lots of energy and really wish my dad was home so I would have something to chew on. I guess I'll just have to settle for Mom's shoes during the next few days.
Tomorrow the Kansas City Star (KCStar.com) is supposed to include me in their paper (in the FYI/Click section)! I'm sure that I'll get lots of well wishes and make new friends... and that will make me feel much better!
Thanks for all of your love and support!... and here's to all of my new friends!

Sick Little Puppy
No cute pictures today.
Today I'm in the puppy hospital. Last night I started throwing up. I kept throwing up every few hours throughout the night, so my Mommy took me to the vet in the morning. The nice vet gave me a miniature puppy X-Ray to see if I swallowed something naughty. Nope. So they drew my blood to check for some other stuff. Nothing. I started to feel better and even ate some moist food. The vet thought I was doing better but than I threw up again. I got an I-V and catheter so I don't get dehydrated---there's not very much of me to dehydrate! So, after a very tiring day I'm writing from the puppy-hospital. It's scarey here.
My poor Mom is so frightened. My Dad is 800 miles away on business for a whole week. He sure feels bad that he can't be home right now! I can't wait to see them again and I really want to sleep in my own bed.
Bye for now.

Howie, My New Friend
I had a my very first puppy play day with a little pup named Howie.
I thought Howie's short little legs were so cute! I tried to get Howie to lay still so I could give him sweet, sweet kisses.
He threw me off and told me that girls have germs!
That wasn't very nice so I made him smell my bum.

The Great White Flying Pup
My cousin Lily is so fun to jump on. I like to chew on her nose and her ears. My favorite things to do are jump on top of her like I'm a crazed flying squirrel and to rear back and swat her with my paws like I'm a vicious tiger... But the absolute best is getting in a good pounce when she's not looking!

Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow
Today my Mom and Dad decided to give me my first Schnauzer-do.
I told them that my hair didn't need cutting. Scruffy ears and shaggy legs are good enough for me!
Did they listen?! NO!!! For over an hour they fought with me and held me down. I struggled against them with all of my strength. In the end they finally wore me out---but not before I got in a couple of good bites! Funny thing is I'm getting a lot more attention now. Maybe this hair-cut deal isn't such a bad thing after all.

Today I met my cousin Lily. She is moving in today to stay with my family. I was a little shy at first.
My Mom encouraged me to come out and meet my cousin. Lily's a lot bigger than me so I took things slow.
Then, when she wasn't looking, I jumped on her with all of my mighty strength.
