    Everybodys wondering about why dogs eat tissues, why dogs are so fascinated with used tissues. Im not. Im wondering how to obtain them. I used to have a source. My source was the trash basket. There was one trash basket in the 2nd floor bathroom and one in the 2nd floor bedroom and one in the far and darkened corner of the basement room.

    The basement one was the easiest to obtain my used tissues because there I had a lot of privacy and because the carpeting absorbed the sound of my walking. If...

    Another one of those trips to the animal hospital where Im perfectly happy to go. More than happy. Theres always a new excitement in the air because the air tells me that new dogs whom Ive never met are nearby. Its not always the easiest thing to wag my tail in the car, but I manage.

    Into the hospital we went, and waited. There was one dog in the Dogs section who was really nice until he started barking at me. And that ended our budding friendship. Mom took me away, and then decided to try...

    Ive always been excited about going away, getting in the car and driving away. Ive never been excited about the sight of the suitcases that my parents place on the floors and beds though the ones sitting up in the attic dont phase me in the least. But recently my parents started packing suitcases and also carrying my bed to the door. Carrying my bed to the door trumped the depression I feel when I see suitcases out and about. With my bed, I know its going to be a good time. This time my...

    I look pretty bad here. Whats worse is how I felt. I couldnt run, I could barely walk, my parents thought I was dying. And I guess I was. I felt sick as a dog, and I was. My mom wanted me to see my favorite doctor in the world, but she wasnt there. So I saw the next doctor, then another, and finally I ended up where I should have started out, with my favorite doctor in the world (aside from Dr. Kiko, but I saw him too), who was now back from being away, andmy favorite doctor in the world...

    I dont think about it, actually. In the mornings when Im out walking with Dad, and Im not clipped to my lead, I really enjoy a quick trot. Maybe a quick dash from tree to tree. Its joyous. In the afternoons when Im out with my Mom, and she lets me off lead, Ill do the same. Usually she gets up ahead of me and Im lagging behind, smelling whatever I can find, and then I see her up ahead and sprint to her. A few times shes made a game out of it, and shell start running, Come on, Joey. Lets run...

  • Dog Overdosed on Previcox?

    Im sleeping a lot, guys. I really am. But a few weeks ago it got really really really bad. I could barely walk back home when my mom took me out for a walk; Mom felt so badly for me drooping along that she would take off the lead and at least give me some freedom and let me walk at my own slow pace. I know that she would be up ahead of me. This was really not the order of things and she knew it and I knew it, though she tried to make me feel better about it by saying Good boy all the way back...

  • When Dogs (like me) Slip and Slide on Stairs

    from Dogs Don't Look Both Ways

    My parents noticed it a few times.

    They noticed when I tried to jump up on the bed my rear feet lost their footing on the flooring, and I slipped. I tried to make nothing of it, and to make another attempt to jump up on the bed, this time successful. Another time my legs slipped out from under me, and I was quite too nervous to attempt it again. My parents, who were there at the time, urged me to try again. Come on, Joey! Jump up! Jump up!! Up up up! they said, not wanting me to give up and...
