Hi, this is Sally Ann. I wanted to write about my big brother.
This is a picture from his barkmitsvah.
Last year, he won the costume contest. We were very surprised, and we were happy. He did not expect to win.
Mack loved milk bones and treats from the Taj-ma-hound barkery. I would love to send some to the winner because Mack won, and those were some of his favorite treats before he got sick. We miss him, and Mommy calls Andy, Mack, sometimes.
This is me, Mommy and Andy at the Petsmart costume contest. We took second. Last year we were third. I am Beauty and he is the Beast.
I told Mommy that perhaps the winner might be a girl doggie, and she wouldn't want boy cookies. Also, the winner could be a dog that is quite large like the dog named after a fruit who lives up North. So that winner would like bigger cookies. So, we are waiting to know who the winner will be.
I think I'm trying to catch up after being away so long, so here is the rest of my house. Sally Ann
This is the first thing that humans see when they enter my house.
Mommy said I had to put this up. This is the bathroom for humans. There isn't a door, so I told Mommy she must make it pretty.
Mommy told me "Sally Ann, I don't like the bathroom." So, I said, "lets paint and change the mirror and lights." Wow, Mommy was very happy with my choice. If any one needs any personal decorating advice, I am always here.
Hi Y'all! Mommy, Andy and I have been away from blog land for a while. Is there still going to be the Halloween costume contest? Are all the main members of blog land doing well?(i.e., Mango - with the big C scare - Mommy won't write the word) We are getting ready for the big contest, I will be Belle, and Poo poo will be Beast. Well, we should be home this weekend. Hopefully, Mommy will have photos of our great new house. We went from yucky carpet to wood floors, and light fixtures and a appliances from 1985 to nice new and modern. See y'all later, Sally Ann
Finally, I am able to post about my brother. My condo looks great now, and I have insisted that the living room is to be painted. So, Mommy, Andy and I are still staying there. This is what I have to deal with on a daily basis:
This is what he looked like when he first arrived:
Mommy said I could post some more tomorrow. Sally Ann
I am a big sister now. Mommy has lots of photos, but because I wanted floors in my bedroom(where Mommy shares a bed with me) a big problem was found. There was a problem with the sub floor, the wall and the ceiling. So now, I have a perfect bedroom, and a baby brother. I have babysit him in his crate sometimes because he cries. Mommy, Andy and I are staying with Nana now, and I hope next week we can be at home. Sally Ann
Hi Y'all, I am so tired because I am managing my household first I told Mommy that no carpet should come into my house. So, no carpet, and we get all wood, well, faux; but, it looks great.
I am just bushed doing all this house stuff. I am only a little dog, but some one has to do it. Also, I told Mommy she had to get more storage, so I sent her to Ikea.
I don't want Andy to come to a messy house. I have to take care of him because I am the big sister now. I must go rest now, as I am tired from all this work.
Currently, all of my furniture is everywhere, and it is not where is it supposed to be. I suppose this is how work happens. If y'all have any advice on how to snoopervice work faster, I could use it. I can't even get to my play pin. Oh no, Mommy trying to move something. Mommy stop . . . . . Sally Ann
Mommy and I are getting all ready for Angus's arrival. Because of Angus, I am getting brand new floors and Mommy is getting some new carpet for our bedroom. Mommy also is going to get new storage. All of this is because of the new puppy. I am very excited, and I can't wait to be a big sister. Sally Ann
The title, Lord McDuff, shall be passed onto the next generation. In 11 days, Master Angus will be taking up residence. I think Mack is already giving him pointers on how to be a proper Eskie man. Sally Ann
My baby brother will be coming on or near the 13th of June. I am most excited, but I am worried about one thing.
Little Scottish Bertie has Katie.
I am so worried that there isn't a love interest for my precious little brother. There aren't any northern doggies out there under a year old. If he is anything like Mack, he will be quite the catch. I'll begin teaching him French as soon as he arrives. Oh well, I hope a cute little northern doggie pops up in doggie blog land.
First, I put on my wet suit that Mommy and I picked up today at the alteration shop.
Well, here it is. I'm really not that into it, but Mommy seems really happy with it. Hey, how many dogs have a Body Glove wetsuit!
Now, the life jacket. Mommy is scared of me sinking in the pool. My wet suit even has breathing holes so it won't fill up with water.
I am going to help Mommy teach swimming this summer, and I have to wear a life jacket to swim. Mommy said she is afraid of a child pulling me under water. I rather like the color.
My big sister Sylvie had a wetsuit, and a life jacket to help Mommy teach swimming lessons, I am following in her paws. Sylvie has given me some great advice on how to proceed. Also, Mommy ask me to ask y'all, for those humans with boy doggies, what is the best way to potty train?
Hi Y'all, we were very sad to hear about Max moving to heaven. I just know that he and Mack are running ,jumping, playing, and eating lots and lots now. We went to visit a litter of five week old American Eskimo puppies yesterday. We looked at rescues, but we could not find a young purebred Eskie that could be adopted out of state or the cute terrier puppy was a mixed breed, and couldn't earth dog with me. Silly AKC rules.)
Mommy is knowledge less about how to post a video on our blog. If you go to You tube, and enter:
Edward and 4 week old puppies
You can see the puppies we meet. Mommy said one of them will most likely be Andy.
Tonight, Mommy and I changed my blog. It is just me now making comments. I miss having someone to tell me what to do. Mommy has been thinking about a baby brother. I wondered, is it to soon. When my big sister Sylvie died, I came to help Mommy and Mack not be so sad. Mommy likes these breeds Dandies, Corgis, Eskies, and Welshies. Do y'all have any advice on when Mommy and I should look. Mommy found some reputable good breeders, and she said when Andy comes;we, Mommy, Andy, and I will go to Petsmart and donate whatever the adoption cost is for a very young puppy. Mommy and I miss Bubba very much, and it feels really different without him. Sally Ann
This was from the Peppy Sheppy's and Otis's Blog. It was kinda funny.
This is my Wu - name. I don't really think I am a Warlock, but hey I can be a good soldier(with the rats, he he he).
I love Mommy because she brings toys for me to play with along with Santa paws.
We go to the botanical gardens, this picture was taken at Christmas.
I like swimming with Mommy.
I love it when Mommy plays fetch and toss the tennis ball for me.
Mack is doing a bit better. He can walk on his own more. The VET will be measuring him for a cart on Tuesday. Apparently, the cart will be coming from some place called Eddie's wheels. I wonder if I could get a cart?
Hi y'all, we are four days into, my 21 days of "can we walk again." Mommy said she would give the rehabilitation therapy three weeks, 21 days. So far, Mommy has walked me with publix's bags, and she makes me stand by the door for twenty minutes at a time to practice weight bearing. Help, I mean, I am an older doggie. I am not a horse, I am a dog. Sure, horses who are sick, rest in slings, but, I am Lord Duncan of McDuff, a proud older Eskie. Why must I stand, when resting is easier? I really love Mommy, and I want to walk for her;but, it is hard.
Also, Sally Ann knows I am sick. She hid under the bed Saturday night, and Mommy had to pull her out. Sally Ann is worried in a way only doggies can be. So far, Mommy has a lead on her in the house. Just in case, she pulls another "under the bed." She loves sleeping with Mommy, so I know she was worried for me. Mack
Today, my big brother went to the vet's because he is very sick. Mommy and I were sad to hear about Charlie, another brave Eskie. Does anyone know anything about doggie harnesses like this one? We are looking for something similar to this one. It is sold out for now at In the company of dogs, but it is the only one that seems to help beyond human lifting helping to walk.
Maybe some of the big doggies might know something. We watching and waiting for now, but I want Mack to get better now. Mommy wants him to be able to walk from his bed to his food bowl, and to walk normally outside. A Worried Sally Ann
