Bud Does Know The Difference

The world revoles  around Bud; he has outside only toys  and inside only toys.  I was having company and Bud got so excited by more people coming to see him. Of the house was spotless for a dinner party. The floor is clean and wouldn't you know Bud drops an outside toy. Oh well my house is a dog house and would rather have my sweet boy over clean floors and day !

Bud's Traumatic Evening

It was laundry day in Bud's house. We have a new slip cover for the old sofa (Bud's sofa) that we took off to wash. My worker decided to put a chair on the couch so Bud wouldn't get up there and get it dirty without the cover on it. I told my worker not to do it because I knew Bud would be traumatized. I told her a blanket would be better, but she put the chair anyway, and Bud was beside himself. See for yourself the trauma Bud had to endure for 45 minutes while the slip cover was being washed. I think Bud will need therapy for many months for this one.

Dog Manners 101 Sniff Test

video
Gracie was gone for hours to be groomed and Lesa at Unleashed in Caycous. It was such a good job on Gracie that Bud didn't now it was the same dog. Grace can be cranky in the early morning but she hates cleaning around her eyes. Gracie seems happy to be free of all the hair. Before the cut she got burs and sticks in her fur. Thank you Lisa for working hard on her I 'm going to keep her short. She is happy and she is very loving. Until a dogs sniff her behind. She was on her on the streets of LA. She learned how to defend herself. The other day I saw her kiss Bud on the lips,  watch closely !
Now Gracie has her great stylus !!!

Life Is Good

Bud is a happy dog. I love my dog so I take good care of him. Recently I purchased slip covers because the leather love seat has been destroyed by his nails and age... It has been his spot for the nine years of his life. The love seat had been damaged from his nail etc. Some people don't let their dogs on the furniture. I see why now. Bud has a cozy crate in my office where I do my writing which is a lot of time every day. Bud has a large memory foam bed in the living room as well.
Bud goes on the love seat to look out the front window. I didn't think it was possible he could love that spot even more! the slip covers are quilted pad and extra cushy. He loves it the only problem is that Gracie, who has a cozy crate in my bedroom and a basket with soft blankets, wants to also lay on the love seat now.
Miss Gracie found this love seat too irresistible! Bud is good natured about it but afraid of Gracie's grouchy mornings. What to do, what to do?

Mom's New Floor

Mom got new floors. I was happy with the old floor. I could lay on the floor when i was wet and Mom let me and sis Gracie clean up her dinner in the living room. She let me wait by the kitchen table drooling while waiting for her to give me her egg yolk and she let me clean up the bowl of yogurt and little Gracie licks the spoon.
But now I don't know what to do or where to go. She keeps saying no drooling on her new floor. You used to love my drool? you said you love it? where do I go? Thank goodness there's still carpet in this house!
Gracie says I love the floor! it feels so good on my back. Mom always gets mad though and says I bring sticks and dirt in from the yard.
Mom caves when Gracie is gone, she lets me lick the bowl again in the living room but says I have to try and not make a mess. Mom had one of her helpers buy a mat for the floor so that when I wait for food in the morning my drool doesn't get all over her precious floor. Mom says Gracie and I are more important than having a clean house..

Mom's Office Day Is So Borng That Bud Naps

I love writing but I dread office work; you know like paying bills and files papers, making appointments etc. I would much rather take Bud to the beach or get Gracie exercised. Anything to get me out of the house! The other day I was working at my desk with a helper and I lost track of the time. It had been 3 hours. I didn't know that Bud was in the room until we finished.  Look at sweet boy Bud he has his own private suite including a private curtain... look closely at his curtain! custom homemade
I spent the rest  of the afternoon outside. I LOVE watching Bud play. Bud is the best digger in the history of great diggers, he is the BEST.

Dexter House Guest

My new neighbor's dog is a very sweet boy. He spent the night and the next day he could not resist himself to food on the counter top. The story is, that my helper left the house  with him in the house alone. She left plates of chicken and quinoa while walking Gracie. Well the rest is very predicable............dogs are opportunistic feeders.  So of course he thought how nice of Denise  to leave food at his nose level.....
Dexter is a mix Catahoula dog from Louisiana  the dogs are bred to climb trees to corner raccoons ....so getting food on the counter was eazy pesy! The next day he gave me flowers and an apology ..............he could not help himself ..........that is really in his nature .
The Louisiana Catahoula Leopard Dog is believed to have originated from Nordic Wolfhound being introduced some three to five hundred years before the Spanish arrived, however, no one will really know for sure. The state of Louisiana is cited as the point of origin, particularly the area of Catahoula. In 1979, the breed was designated the state dog of Louisiana. The Catahoula was named after a Parish in northeastern Louisiana and after the mottled spots on its coat. At one time this breed was used to round up feral pigs and cattle—livestock that had escaped, and was living in woods and swamps. It involved team effort that is highly coordinated and organized, fast paced, dangerous and a marvel to watch. The ideal dog team usually numbers three, and they must work together. Otherwise, one pig can kill all three in a matter of minutes. Each dog has to be aware of what the pig and the other two dogs are doing and react accordingly. Hunters sometimes used the Catahoula to trail and tree raccoons, but this dominant breed is more at home acting the thug with obstinate boars. This dog is used particularly on the difficult task of driving and rounding hogs and unruly cattle.

I will forgive any boy who gives me flowers for anything. He is a sweet boy!
