Home Sweet Home

The new dude got his surgery on Tuesday. He was a cryptorchid which does not mean that he had a flower growing inside of him. It did mean that he had TWO incisions--like a neuter AND a spay!

Here he is looking pathetic after being carried out to the car.

Here he is sleeping peacefully in his crate after being carried inside. THIS DID NOT LAST:

And here he is in his cone playing his favorite game of "spear the ma ape in the gut with the cone!"

He has to wear the cone all the time. Not necessarily because he is going after his sutures but because without it he goes BUCK WILD trying to play.

And here is an artist's rendering of my ma ape:

Yes, a one-year old dude has a lot of energy and doesn't appreciate being crated all day. He wants to play with my sissy constantly, screams if we get out of sight, and plows over anything and everything he can with his conehead. Our other ape is sick and can't help. So here is the count so far:

Number of times the new dude has knocked over the ma ape: 2
Number of times the new dude has pulled her over: 1
Number of bruises on my ma ape from the cone, falling, and other unfortunate accidents: at least two dozen
Number of times he has coned me or my sissy in the bum: 1,000,000,000,000,008
Approximate decibels of his screams: 2,000
Number of times I have decided to sing along with his screaming: Just one glorious duet.

Gus's mom suggested that we try applying alcohol directly to the ma ape. I might take her over to the corgi lounge.

Obama clinches nomination. And now it is time to pick a VP. I think in this historic year it is about time for a cross-species ticket. Now THAT is change I believe in. I have a couple of suggestions.

Ernest, for fresh new ideas and flat basseting:

Wally T. Corgador, the face of experience. Also I think the Veep is a job I could excel it since it seems to primarily involve hiding out at a secret location and periodically shooting old men in the face. No, that joke will never get old.

Isn't this the face of a thoughtful world leader?

Wrestlemania 2008!

Shhh....the little guy is sleeping off his painkillers. If only he were always this quiet. But until he left to go to the vet he was ALL RASSLIN ALL THE TIME. Seriously--like the Newfs of Hazard said, it was like the Matrix with black dogs multiplying and doing their high tech fightin n' bitin'. My sissy has never gotten a workout like this:

But hey! Wait for me!

Three way rasslin!
Wally tags in!

But what team is he on???


How many dogs can you find in this picture? ends with a bit of butt sniffin'.

Can't wait until you're healed, buddy!

Drinks and Tags

I was over having drinks at the ole Corgi Lounge and have you ever seen a sight as lovely as THIS?

First Randi, now the Corgi Girls! Wallymelon is the new craze sweeping the nation! Now, I highly recommend the Corgi Lounge's Corgipolitans but not after you have the Corgaritas. Whew. It took me awhile to sleep that one off. So my girls suggested we play a funny name game using this code:

A - ka, B - tu, C - mi, D -te, E - ku, F - lu, G - ji, H - ri, I - ki, J - zu, K - me, L - ta, M - rin, N - to, O - mo, P - no, Q - ke, R - shi, S - ari, T - chi, U - do, V - ru, W - mei, X - na, Y - fu, Z - zi.

I introduce to you:

And Meikatatafu:


Mine is best, don't you think?

Get Better, Ted!

Ted Kennedy had brain surgery yesterday and here's how you know he's a good guy:

Kennedy's dogs, Sunny and Splash, met him at the hospital door. Hospital employees and others applauded the senator.

Although the media didn't seem to understand they were applauding the dogs but the point stands. He has the endorsement of dog
s. One even wrote a book.

Should the Democrats not settle this whole nomination process today I say they just decide--"Eh, let's just go with a dog!" I hear Ernest is still available.

It's time for me to stop being so coy. Meet OSCAR. This Ethel Impersonator was left at the SPCA by an owner who lost his home. Oscar was up for adoption. We don't know what happened to his previous owner.

Our rescue friend took him home to briefly foster him but he had a full house and couldn't keep him. Oscar fit with our pre-existing color scheme, though he does need some highlights like ours, don't you think? Maybe a little white on the chest and on the toes?

Oscar is around 11 months old and is a totally gnarly teenager. He thinks everything rawks. He didn't know how to do a lot of stuff like play with toys or how to go for walkies or how to eat chews so we've been busy teaching him how to do stuff like eat bully sticks:

And bug sissy:

And play keep away:

You see why I have been too busy/too tired to post.

Tomorrow Oscar is going to the v-e-t for a bit of the old neutering. My ma ape tells me I have to quit calling it the nut cut but he has an undescended testicle so I am just calling it as I am seeing it. Everyone wish Oscar some good luck. My ma ape is wondering how he is going to be able to handle the rest time because this dude has some energy.

I am taking suggestions for things to add to the list of things I need to teach Oscar (he already knows to be scared of The Wally. And he is). Also, someone suggested that I hump some sense into this dude and I have most def done that. I have pictures to prove it. So tomorrow during the nut cut. Er, the SURGERY I will post some pics and tell you more about Oscar and The Grouch.
