never too hot for the cave bed

Now that it is summer and Mom likes to torture herself by not putting on the air conditioning (she says it saves money) but I don't care about money, I just want Pixie to stop panting in my ear. But anyway, even though it is hot in here, I still LOVE my cave bed.

Going racin'

Mom is messing around in the big closet. Pulling out all the racing gear. This must mean we are going racing this weekend.


Safe and fast running to all the whippets who get to race this weekend.

Last night, Pixie and I spotted a bunny in the front yard. We was vewy quiet cause we was huntin' wabbits. We didn't move a muscle, we just stared at it. Pixie was trying to use her super mind control to get it to go under the fence and come into the back yard so she could then convince Mom to let us out back and then she could murdalize it.

This morning, we woke up and went to check the window again and to our delight, the bunny was back. I spotted it first. Pixie was kind of busy staring at Mom's breakfast.

Do you see the bunny?

But wait, you are not going to believe this. Through some insane convergence of the universe or some other such awesome event. Not only was there a bunny in the front yard, but there was also a squirrel. Mom took this kind of kooky photo through the window. But I think if you look real hard or maybe squint up yer human eyes a bit, you can see them. A freaking bunny and a squirrel in our front yard. Oh happy day, happy day.

Here are some better photos of these delicious woodland creatures. Hello squirrel, please come into my back yard so Pixie can kill you. And then maybe she will let me eat part of you.

Hello bunny. Would you like some delicious carrots? There are some growing in my back yard. Just go about 50 feet to your left and under that gate. There are tons of carrots just waiting for you. So come on bunny - come into my back yard.

cholesterol stinks

Apparently, my Mom is having some kind of fight with something called cholesterol and cholesterol is currently winning. If I knew what cholesterol was or where to find it, I would kick its ass on behalf of my Mom. Anyway, since this cholesterol battle started, my Mom has stopped eating bacon. Which means that Pixie and I have also stopped eating bacon. Which really sucks. Did I mention that I want to kick the crap out of cholesterol? Does anyone know where I can find it? Cause I think Pixie also wants to open up a can of whoop-ass on this stupid cholesterol.

Instead of eating bacon, Pixie and I have been forced to beg for celery.

Humans have this thing called Mother's Day

Pixie and I have big ears and we like to listen in on stuff our Mom says to other humans. We recently overheard her talking to her brother about this thing called Mother's Day. Apparently, on this day humans call their mothers and send them gifts. Often these gifts include some kind of treats for the mother. Pixie and I are not mothers but we have decided that we want some extra treats today.

So in honor of the fact that we really love our human Mom, we propose that this treat-giving idea for Mother's Day get expanded to involve the things that get mothered by the mothers. You see where we are going with this? Pixie says we should write to Hallmark and get them to change the rules surrounding this holiday. I told Pixie that nobody cares about Hallmark and we should just make a proclamation here on my blog. So here goes...

On this, the 9th day of May, 2010, Pixie and Ladybug Smith do hereby solemnly propose that the day that humans call Mother's Day:

  1. be expanded to include humans who mother canines
  2. be expanded in such a way that humans who mother canines give said canines extra treats
We would like to further state that we are not selfish and we fully intend to provide our Mom with lots of love and appreciation for the extra treats she gives us. She doesn't seem to really like the treats we bring her from outside and we don't have thumbs so we can't drive to the store and get her treats she likes. So instead of treats we give love.

OK, that should do it.

And by the way - we have the most awesome Mom ever. Here are a few photos of us with our Mom.

Saturday Pet Blogger Hop

I let my Mom take over my blog today to try and do this Saturday Pet Blogger Hop thing and get more in tune with the pet blogger community.

She gave me a bunch of treats and also I am real tired from running around today. I am glad my Mom is checking out lots of other pet-related blogs.

Hooray for dogs who blog and cats too and ferrets maybe but not for bunnies, sorry, but that is just going too far.

My Dad is cooler than your Dad

This is my Dad - Panther. He has had a super illustrious racing career. This weekend he retired from racing. He will continue to rock out on the agility circuit - so watch out for him.

He is completely multi-talented and most importantly, he taught me all I know about being sweet and goofy.

Hooray for my Dad!!!!!!
