Maizie you are a smart cookie. You have a reason for each toy choice. Then, you know how you want them organized. Maybe one day we will catch on, too!

Charlie Blue

Change Happens

     ~ Here is Our Update

 

IMG_8500I am way overdue for a Charlie Blue update! Our lives have changed quite a bit in the last year. We got an English Bulldog puppy and moved from Boise to Seattle.

Charlie despised Bosa when we first brought him home. Bosa is almost a year old now. Charlie tolerates him, but he’s still not her favorite.

She prefers to snuggle with our kiddos and our cat, Ish. Charlie has made new friends in Seattle and she loves the ocean. I will never forget the moment when she first encountered waves. But some things never change.

She still loves retrieving, swimming, racing in snow, finding birds (even when we aren’t hunting), going on fishing and camping trips, running free, stealing food, ripping up pillows, and hogging the bed.

 

I create a photo collage of Charlie for her birthday every year. I can’t believe she’s five! We love her more every day. She truly is the best family dog.IMG_8487IMG_1451

Charlie Blue has an interesting life. We do so appreciate everything you have done with and for her. Thank you, for remembering us. It means the world.

Busted

Sunshine Calling

        ~Or What’s a Girl To Do?

LaBash's Maizie So Busted_3288
What’s a girl to do when sunshine is streaming right into the guest room window…right onto the guest bed…and I’m not permitted to have all 4 legs on the furniture in this house…and my masters are not paying attention….BUSTED Maizie!

Reporting In

My Life at Six

Hello there….Maizie reporting in.  You haven’t heard from me in awhile.  I guess my roommates have been busy and I don’t know how to type.

Maizie on 01.14.18 (Livee x Blue 02/28/12)
At the end of next month I’ll be “6” years old.  My first photo on the Blog I was 3 weeks old!  I have become for the most part, set in my ways.  My mom and dad love me lots.  They like  to see me happy.  I like truck rides, car rides, chasing balls or frisbees at the dog park, going into stores, going for walks with them—but my mom won’t take me running with her anymore because I like to pull her and stop to sniff or pee whenever I please.  She says it’s no fun.  When they go places where they can’t take me, they put smooth jazz music on for me.  They always give me a “bye bye cookie.”  Sometimes I find one of their socks to put in my mouth and carry around.  Waste baskets are irresistible when they leave—they close doors to keep me out of those places!
I have trained my parents to put peanut butter in the 4 corners of my Kong bone every day after breakfast. I have also trained them to give me 2 Quaker Oatmeal Squares and 3 blueberries every single day after the peanut butter.
I am a huge snuggler and love to cuddle with my family on their laps.  I am not allowed on the furniture or beds—as long as my hind legs are on the floor, everyone is content.  I still carry around my “fleece” daily and flip it into a figure 8 to curl up inside one of the circles.  I am healthy and strong.  I am told my coat is beautiful and I have a great smile.
I keep squirrels in line every day in my backyard.  I am a happy girl.

We sincerely hope that you are learning not to pull on the lead Miss Maizie girl. It was good to see you again. You are quite lovely and what a family you have there in Western Oregon. We love Chewy.com–they have a lot of great things. You are the second client in days who purchased from them. What can I say? They take care of people, and their service is extraordinary.

Rogue & Rebel

From Jamie & Shawn

I thought I’d send you a couple of pics and a brief update on Rogue and Rebel.
Kerr's Two.52
Rebel just turned two years old.  He acts older, in that he’s more laid back and shy around strangers.  Some of our guests described him as  ‘aloof.’  He is still very much a puppy though.  He loves to play and antagonize Rogue who turned three back in February.  The pair of them get along so well and are very good for each other.
Shawn takes them out for a morning walk of 3-6 miles a day.  In the heat of the day, they are happy to stay out of the sun and will laze around underfoot in the shade or cool temps of the house.
Kerr's Two..47Rogue loves to swing on the hammock.  With me, or with guests, it makes no difference.  He can almost manage to get up into the hammock on his own, but for now, he needs a little boost.  Both enjoy being around the pool but both hate to get in.  We imagine they call the pool “The Big Wet” secretly to themselves and are curious about why the people seem to want to be in it.
Rebel has finally grown out of his ‘chew-on-everything’ phase.  We’ve been working on a bit of home improvement to correct some of the marking and chewing he did as a puppy.  We’re just about finished with new flooring and are looking forward to moving back in.  We’ve been feeling a little cramped all piled into one room.
We see a lot of Don and Maria who are former customers of yours too.
Have a great summer!!    Jamie & Shawn

Thank you, Jamie and Shawn. We appreciate your loyalty and the fact that despite your busy life that you remember us. We are glad that boys are a good fit for each other. That is very important as you well know. Have a beautiful summer and enjoy getting moved back in.

Maize Speaks!

Hi!  I am Maizie.  I am 5 years old.  Recently I had an “owie” that had to be surgically removed.  My roommates Jerry and Linda tried putting various contraptions over my head to try to keep me from licking it.  I thought I would tell you about these.
Maizie Summer 2017-3
I borrowed this blow-up donut collar from a dog named Bentley.  It worked for him.  I didn’t mind it because I could still lick my wound when my roommates weren’t looking.  Eventually, I got busted.  That led to the return of the dreaded E-Collar i.e. The Collar of Shame.
Maizie Summer 2017-4
It made me depressed.  Jerry and Linda didn’t like seeing me like this.  Here is a look at how sad I was.
My roommates called around to pet stores and found me this really great one that allowed me to breathe, eat, drink, and for the most part—made it very difficult to get in trouble with licking.  It is new on the market, called Scratch.No.Mor.  It is like a giant turtleneck that is held together by velcro straps.  They take it off of me for meals.  They found it at Natures Pet Market in West Linn, OR.  Check it out:
I am all better now.  My stitches are healed.  I don’t care about licking it anymore.  I am back to chasing squirrels in my backyard.

Anticipation

Perfect weather as you can see by the sky.  She usually knows exactly where we are going and starts whining with anticipated excitement.  Today, however, we were driving in an unfamiliar location–and you can almost see her trying to assess and figure it out!
