my sad story

this is my dead baby bird.


this is my house.


this is where i brought my dead baby bird into my house.


this is leah's face when she saw my dead baby bird in my house.


this is where i went to pout after getting in trouble for bringing my dead baby bird into my house.


(on my girl's pillow to spread the dead baby bird juice.)

LIARS AND THIEVES!

you WILL NOT believe what happened at my house yesterday!!! IT and i were sleeping peacefully...


when all of a sudden i heard something! i jumped to "alert status"!


two men came INTO OUR HOUSE and STOLE something out of our furnace!!!!! i yelled and hollered at the top of my (very healthy and lusty) lungs, but it did no good - i was locked behind leah's door and couldn't get at 'em. leah *said* they were replacing some kind of filter, but that's a lie. i know they were stealing our stuff and no one would let me do a thing about it. i was so worked up i had to go see petra to distract myself. and when i saw THIS, i was so appalled and amused that i couldn't think of anything else:


oh, that girl....

jeesh

IT is a big fat liar. well, okay... he's a skinny naked liar. all that crap about "giving her JOY" - ha! look at this:


do you know what that is? it is ALL of massah's bedding. well, every single bit of it except for one pillowcase. why are they on the floor and not on her bed, you ask? because of this thing:


he peed all over them. right after he came in from outside. just squatted right there and let it all out. no shame. i was too embarrassed to even look.


and he just laid there after she changed everything. like he didn't have a care in the world.


on her birthday, even! i had to close my eyes.... *sigh*

returning and continued starvation

well motch and p.a. got home. the first thing motch said when she saw little pee was "how much did she eat?! she is enormously and obesely FAT!!!!!" maybe not those exact words, but pretty close. and she is right... look at her belly!

too bad i wasn't staying with petra and leah. *sigh* i'm still starving to death over here with the little naked chinese man. look at me - i can barely keep my eyes open as i waste away.


luckily petra is kind enough to stay by my side and comfort me in my starvation. she is worried about me too - can you see it in her eyes?

cravings

i had the most lovely evening yesterday. my girl was sourly watching the giants beat the redskins (neither of whom she likes, so i'm not sure why she was so emotionally involved in the game, but that's okay beacuse it worked to my advantage) when i took it upon myself to have a look-see in her bedroom. my girl heard me rifling through things and making odd noises, but she shrugged it off because i do that sometimes. what she had forgotten, however, was a box of junior mints that she had on top of my crate which is beside her bed. what was i to do? let them get stale as eli manning continued to throw inexplicable completions? i give you a resounding NO!!! i knocked the box down, ripped it open, ate the CHOCOLATE candy, then preceeded to eat almost the entire cardboard minty-flavored box before she came in and found me!


i was kind crabby the rest of the night, but i didn't tell her it was because i was feeling poorly due to my dangerous over-indulgence. i didn't let on. and i made it through just fine, thank you. no ill effects. and my breath even smelled minty fresh!

c'est moi

here's just some pictures of me (with IT and massah-in-law/leah) in case you forgot what i looked like.

i have a nice smile, don't you think?

see how nice and symetrical MY ears are? not all wonky, like someone's.

then IT got tired.

and then i had enough. now leave me alone.

more evidence!

i would like to share more proof that i am wasting away. this was me - with MEAT ON MY BONES - a couple years ago:


i had insulation on me!


the good old days....



but NOW look at me!


can you see my ribs sticking out?!


i'm wasting away!


look how sunken and gaunt i look!


no, i did NOT look like a barrell, massah... i looked healthy! what is WITH this cultural obsession with TEENY TINY women in the world?! well i refuse to put on a bikini and pose sprawling on the beach in hawaii. give me some peanut butter in a kong and i'll stop complaining. for now.

what is wrong with the human race....

I don't usually post things like this, especially since I don't have first-hand knowledge, but it is so horrifying that I want to pass it on. It's from a man who works at Petco in California....

I wanted to tell you about something extremely disturbing a customer told me today. She felt it was her duty to tell me about this, and I feel like it's my duty to tell you (I'm notifying my four other Boston Terrier-owner friends of this as well). The customer noticed my Boston's picture on my name tag and said that she had her Boston stolen from her front yard recently. She let her dogs (2 Bostons & 2 Pugs) out to potty, and they were very well-trained & would never consider leaving their yard. One of her Bostons was taking a long time to pick a spot, and she had a phone call and let the other dogs back in and left the remaining Boston outside for a second to finish his business. She came right back outside, and he had vanished. She knew he was probably stolen, but she put up signs all over her neighborhood, and was shocked by the response she got.

Many people called her (several who lived on her block) that said their Bostons had been stolen as well and told her to report it to the police. The police had a horrible conclusion. First of all, it wasn't a random thing since nearly all the dogs recently stolen in the area were Bostons and not just any "purebred-looking" dog; this breed itself was being targeted. Second, since most, if not all, these dogs were simply pets and were spayed or neutered, it was not likely they were taken by a puppy mill for breeding purposes. Their fate was most likely far more horrible.
It turns out that in illegal dog-fighting rings (which are very prevalent this area of the country), Boston Terriers are now considered the perfect "bait" for training Pit Bulls to fight, for three reasons:

1) They look like small Pit Bulls, so young Pits in training will learn to go after dogs that have that similar shape and build while not getting harmed in the training process since the Boston is much smaller.

2) Bostons, unlike many other small breeds, have a lot of Bulldog characteristics and are thus willing fight back until death. Therefore, unlike other "bait" dogs, they do more than simply stand there and let themselves get torn up and will better prepare the Pits for fighting--again, without posing too much danger of the "trainee" getting hurt since the much-smaller Boston doesn't stand a chance.

3) This is the perhaps the most stomach-churning. Fighting dogs are trained to go for the neck and throat of the opponent, and the white collar of the Boston allows a training dog's owner to more easily tell how much damage his charge is able to inflict.

I thought you should be aware of this trend since Bostons are apparently being sought-after as bait dogs. Maybe you should also let other Boston owners and your puppies' buyers be aware of this--not to scare them, but because it's much better to be safe than sorry.


Stay close to your family and don't take bones from stranges - especially you Cali pups!

kindness and cruelty

first of all, i have been awarded an award. from the big boy, peanut himself. he gave me this arte-y-pico award because - AND I QUOTE - "because we love her." woot! i am honored!


and i'm a little behind the times, but here is our cold box:


boring boring boring until you get to the side, where you have this - a BOSTON ornament! and NO CRESTIE ORNAMENT, let me point out. woot!


i'm not sure what she is "hopeful" about, except maybe MORE FOOD IN HERE!?!?!?!?!


we are starving to death with no food over here. beware, you easy-weepers out there: here i am, in the middle of summer, wrapped up in a blanket because there is no meat on my bones to keep me warm.


for those of you with no heart, who might be saying, "i don't believe you fig; your girl would never let you starve!" i point out this next exhibit. this is me, huddling next to my brother for warmth. i WOULD NOT DO THIS but for these EXTREME AND DIRE CIRCUMSTANCES.


pee-s: send food please

i'm a model

wanna see something fabulous stupendous wonderously incredible?! do you?!?! well look what leah made (a LONG time ago) and massah just now got around to putting in a place of prominance where it belongs:


it's a duet of pictures, featuring MEEEEEE!!! (and IT) and where is this place of significance? it's above her dresser, where it can be the first thing she sees every morning! and it's near the "happy" sign because i make her HAPPY!!!


other than that, nothing much is happening. massah keeps fawning over IT and its daily funtions of life. i truly don't see what's so intersting and praise-worthy about his "solid" poo. whatever.

hee

if you want a little chuckle, check out my neice waveland's blog.

actually, i think she's my girl's first cousin once removed, which would make her my... second cousin? or something? anyway, i think she's pretty cute, although banjo and i didn't hit it off real well when they lived around here.
