It's no fun...

...when my Momma is sick. She got an awful cold sometime between going to sleep on Thanksgiving and waking up yesterday morning. Just to get her to pay some attention to me, and then blog!, yesterday AND today I really had to give her a good nip in the butt a lot of encouragement.

Mooom, get un-sick quick! I'm so bored!



Hope everydoggie else out in blogville is well and having a good weekend!

Happy (a little belated!) Thanksgiving!

 Woofie, everyone! I hope everyone here in the US of A with me had a completely pawesome Thanksgiving day, complete with lots of yummy foods! For those of my furiends not in the US of A with me...I still hope you have a completely pawesome day with lots of yummy foods!

Mom was super busy with making things yesterday, and didn't find any time to update my blog here. While Mom was busy, I just spent a lot of time napping under the table.


Yup, just like that!
 
Though Mom was busy, that's not to say that there wasn't some time for play...especially in the morning.
 
....Does this stuff have a taste?


Not really...but it is cold!
 
 In the SNOW! Yes, we finally had a little bit of snow over here. Why did no doggie tell me that that stuff is COLD. I liked it...but in little doses, because after awhile I get cold playing in it. Once that happened we went inside, and that's when I did all my napping as Mom played with food stuffs.

Well....before the food stuff playing and the napping Mom was really mean made me wear her official Turkey day hat.

Oh, the indignity.

So I hope everyone, celebrating Thanksgiving or not!, had a wonderful day yesterday!

Uh-oh | Not So Wordless Wednesday

...mom's been bad! She hasn't been helping me update my blog! Really Mom...a full week without an update? Why, how? It's not like things haven't been going on to tell all my furiends out there?

....ok...so maybe for all the end of last week nothing at all happened. Really, it was soooo boring! And Mom's camera battery died, and then she kept forgetting to charge it...so no pictures even! BUT now her battery is all charged, and things have started happening again...good and bad things.

Which to share first?! Bad things first...then good things to make it all better!

Sunday and Monday Mom noticed me shaking my head an awful lot, and she started wondering maybe I had an ear infection...so she decided to call my doggie doctor and make an appointment to make sure. There has also been a bit of an ouchie on my face which Mom was worrying about. She said this would kill two birds with one stone...whatever that means. Really, who wants to kill a bird with a stone?You should just chase them instead! So she called Monday and I had an appointment for Tuesday after she got home from work.

IT WAS AWFUL!

I got poked and prodded and hair pulled from my ear, and my boy-doggie bits played with and they shaved part of my face to better see the ouchie...I was NOT a happy poodle.

My face ouchie. Ouch. :(
Mom was right...I DO have an ear infection in my left ear, so no Mom has to put drops in it once a day for five days (...do not like!). The doggie doctor said the ouchie looks like a hot spot, they may have cut my face to close when I got my furs cut the last time. It's also on the same side as my ear infection, which make my ear itchy so I keep scratching there. The doggie doctor also gave Mom some antibiotic pills to help it get better. Already in the day since going to the vet I feel a bit less itchy and head-shakey.

So that's it for the bad news...now for the GOOD news! 

I GOT MY FIRST CHRISTMAS CARD! ~~wigglebutt~~


Mom! It's mine! Just give it to me!!!
 My first first first EVER Christmas card came from Reilly and the Dweeb Denny!
Thank you so much, guys! 

I'm going to treasure it for always guys, cross my paws!

There's also this as good news:

Whoa! It's me! 
This came as a surprise in the mail yesterday...a painting of me! But where did it come from? It came from Chewy.com, done by Lisa there! Mom was surprised and super thrilled by, she wasn't expecting such a thing! Sure, she'd got me things from there before (like the collar I'm wearing in the picture and painting!) but this was awesome!

She says she's pretty sure that she's found the pet supply site that she will continue to use to spoil me buy supplies for me.

So that's what's been going on in my world! Hopefully now that I've nipped Mom in the butt convinced Mom to update the blog she won't be so lax with it again!

BRRR!!

It's getting to be cold out there! Feels even colder since all my furs got cut ThanksalotMOM!, so Mom got me a sweater.


Not sure how I feel about it, I really do prefer my own furs. To be warm though, I will wear it. Mom plans on getting me a few more, so I have options during this winter.

Speaking of winter...I have not seen any of this 'snow' stuff I see other doggie talk about on other blogs. Mom keeps grummbling about it when it comes up in talking, but I wish it would come here so I can finally know what it is!

My middle name!

If you got a copy of the Christmas card list and saw me on there, you may have noticed I have a middle name! If you do no have the list, I'll tell you what it is : Megatron. I don't think I look much like a Megatron...but then what does a Megatron look like, anyway?


THAT'S Megatron!? He looks scary!
 
 

No, I definitally do not look like a Megatron!
 
 
I am MUCH more handsome!


So then...why is Megatron my middle name? Because Momma refused to make it my first name! Can you imagine my first name being Megatron?! BOL! Momma says that that's what my poppa wanted to name me, but she said NO. However since she does like my poppa, she said it could be my middle name.

So that's why my middle name is Megatron! Does any other doggie out there have a middle name like me?

My furs are gone!

Furcut day for me! Efurrybody can now see my handsome face!


Sometimes I furget how handsome a pup I am with all my furs on. I mean, I'm always handsome, but without all the fur on my face I'm really super pawesome handsome.
 
That's not all though, it looks like my plan to help Mom with her eye doctor appointment worked becayse while I was at the grooming place she made her appointment. See?! I knew she just needed a little extra help to make it!
 
You're welcome, Mom!
 
After I got all handsome we went to one of my favoritest places: Honey's house! Mom had got us a new rope tug toy...but Honey is such a good tear-er-upper that it didn't last long. That's ok, now we have TWO rope toys!

Well, one rope toy and one rope toy knot end. We both like the knot end best...Honey likes to tease me with it though.
 

Blurry action shot (Mom was figuring out the settings on poppa's camera-thing)! I've got it and Honey can't have it!


....now Honey has it!

 Honey is a meanie tease when she gets the knot! She'll come riiiiiiight up to me and show me how fun it is...then won't let me have it!
 
No fair, Honey!
 


Of course I'm super-duper quick (at obedience I ran a recall to my mom from 25ft in 3 seconds! WHOA!) so it's not long before I snatch it...then the real fun begins!
 
HA! Got it!
 

Now just give it to me, Honey! It's my turn!
TUG!! I LOVE TUG!!
OH YEAH! One more thing...you 'member Veterans day the other day and I though Mom mean my doggie doctor? Then it didn't mean the same thing at all?

Well...today Mom talked about THAT kind of vet...my doggie doctor! She said that she made me an appointment for next month to have me neutered.

Should I be alarmed?

The vet is bad enough...but what does that 'neutered' word mean? Does anypup know?

November 14, 2013

You're welcome, mom!

So I overheard you talking to my poppa the other day, saying how you never got your eyes checked for this year. That you haven't had any problems with your eyes and your current glasses are just fine. Then you took those same glasses off and put them to the side on the couch to play bitey-face with poppa.

I decided I'd help out, cause like poppa said you really should!



They didn't need that other arm thing-y, right?

And I bet you can see MUCH better with my little tooth marks in there, right?


So see mom! Now you can make that appointment like poppa was suggesting!


You are very welcome, mom!

To our Veterans: Thank You.

Mom says that today is Veterans Day, and when I heard that I nearly went and hid somewhere! VETerans day?! Does that mean I have to go see those mean 'ol people who poke at me with sharp pointy things?! 
 
I really don't like those people!

Then Mom explained that no, it's not at all the same thing! That Veterans Day is a day, today!,  here in the United States where everyone honors people who have served in the armed services. Friends, family, neighbors, strangers...Mom says we need to thank them all for the things they've done for us, because without their bravery and selflessness the world we know today would probably be a very different place.  
 
So thank you, brave Veterans, for those things you've done to keep us all safe.

The Noble and the Brave:
A Veteran's Day Tribute

When America had an urgent need,
These brave ones raised a hand;
No hesitation held them back;
They were proud to take a stand.

They left their friends and family;
They gave up normal life;
To serve their country and their God,
They plowed into the strife.

They fought for freedom and for peace
On strange and foreign shores;
Some lost new friends; some lost their lives
In long and brutal wars.

Other veterans answered a call
To support the ones who fought;
Their country had requirements for
The essential skills they brought.

We salute every one of them,
The noble and the brave,
The ones still with us here today,
And those who rest in a grave.

So here’s to our country’s heroes;
They’re a cut above the rest;
Let’s give the honor that is due
To our country’s very best.

Again? Already?!

Mom says it's time again. My hairs are getting pretty long and I'm looking pretty shaggy.

Shaggy? Me?! Ha!
She says it's time for a good ol' trip to the groomers, just in time for the coming Holidays. Make me look all presentable again.

 Presentable? Is THIS her idea of presentable?!

(Photo of September's grooming)
Just look at me! Grooming always makes me all poofy...and cute! Yuck! I'm a boy dog, I don't do cute! And I especially do NOT do poofy bracelets...or at least I should not have to do poofy bracelets.

Maybe I can convince Mom to trade the bracelets in for a mohawk or something really super cool like that come my grooming appointment this Friday!

Yeah...a mohawk would be pawesome...!!!

{This Moment} See Beautiful

Wesley's Mom here! Hello all. :) Last month while Wesley and I were floating around from one amazing blog to another, we ran across the {This Moment} See Beautiful blog hop hosted by the wonderful Sugar.  I instantly fell in love with the whole concept of this movement; it is simply gorgeous and a beautiful thing in and of itself.

I knew without a doubt that this was something I wanted this little blog to join in on.

November 7, 2013

Photo Retakes!...sort of...

Well...sort of. Mom though it would be fun to try and retake some of the photos she posted on Tuesday to show juuuuust how much I've grown.

Wordless Wednesday


Ahhh, to be outside after a long 8 hours inside while Mom's at work!

Tiny Tuesday

So, seeing what a handsome young man I am/am becoming, I bet the big question you all want to know is 'If he's this adorably cute now, how cute must he have been as a tiny little baby?!'

Well, wonder no more! It's time to answer that question.


November 4, 2013

A review?! Natural Balance Pawpaya Pilaf

So one day mom is floating around on Facebook, snooping on people minding her own business when a shared post from the PetFlow.com Facebook page poped up in her feed. This company, one like Chewy, was looking for a bunch of people to test products for them! She's always looking for new things for me to try (I may be a little spoiled...) and jumped to sign up for it.

A short bit later she received an email with an invitation to test and review Natural Balance's Delectable Delights Pawpaya Pilaf. Well, of course she took that invitation, and a day or so later it arrived on our doorstep!
