Odds, ends and new sisters

I didn't get to the bark park today. It was too cold (21F this morning) for mom. Her arfritis is bothering her knees so bad she can barely stand. The reason I wanted to go this week was to meet up with Sassie. We got to the park last week just as she was leaving. She has a new little sister Phoebe (called Fee). I didn't get to see what kind of dog Phoebe was but I could see Sassie's happiness. She hasn't been so happy since Mikey died. When I get a picture of Phoebe, I will post it.

Now- MJ from Vancouver posted her bits on her web site. I told her I would do it too. Since then, and because my dad is soooo slooow, several dogs have posted their bits. So here are my bits:

My front paws at rest:




My head (notice my beautiful brown eyes and mask) and teefies:



The back of my head and soft ears (notice the arrow pointing toward my nose):



I saved the best bit for last. This is specially for Studly Dudley! My arrow butt:



sometimes mom even calls me "arrow butt". I hope no one was offended by that last pic.

Now for some past business. Fei asked me for pictures of my food (Eve- if you still have questions, you can e-mail my mom at my e-mail. Just click on my profile and find my e-mail address). so here it goes...

The first picture is of my turkey neck:

The next is my oxtails:

Next is beef rib:


I get one of the above every morning for breakfast.

Now for dinner (not for the faint of heart- pun intended):


Don't worry- I don't eat the whole beef heart at a meal (I know you were worried about that one!). My mom got that whole beef heart at the butcher shop yesterday. She cut it in half and each half in 3rds. Each 3rd is cut into bite-size pieces. I get heart or half a tin of canned salmon or 1/3 can EVO dog food (choice of chicken/turkey, duck, rabbit, venison) and 1 cup of EVO kibble. Mom also gives me pumpkin (canned- not pie filling) mixed with yogurt (or just plain yogurt) to aid my digestion. Seems I am considered a senior dog (when did THAT happen!).

I saved the best for last. Mom and dad stopped by Petsmart (I have never been there and would certainly like to go- hint hint mom) and brought the next two things home for me:

Since everyone is talking about the CUZ on their blogs when mom saw one at Petsmart, she had to get it. It's OK and I like it but I don't have the urge to do non-stop squeaking with it. I am used to fuzzies I guess. Cuz is covered with my hair and slobber though.



The next item is called an alternative to Pigs Ears. Since I have never had a Pigs ear, I don't have anything to judge it against but these are peanut butter flavored (my favorite flavor). The only bad thing is that they are gone in a minute.



Well- that's about it. I'm going for a quick tour of the yard before dinner.

Wow CKC thanks for visitng my blog. You eat better than I do. I gotta tell you though I love yogurt and pupkin. I've never had heart before and I'm not too sure if I'd enjoy it. Or for that matter if mom would buy/serve it for me. And I'm jealous I'll admit it you get to go to the bark park. We don't even have one where I live and I swear we need one badly.

Wirey hugs,
Ozzy

Dachsies Rule said...

CKC, we don't get whole pigs ears anymore but we do get strips. If we eat a whole pigs ear, it's not a pretty sight. We get cottage cheese for our skin and coats. We would love to try pumpkin! (hint, hint to our mom!)

Dear Charlie

Thank you for visiting my blog again. Does your mum know Dr Pitcairn in the USA ? Mum has given us an 80% natural diet but we are going 100% natural now, though mum does not like to give us offal, only dried liver treats.

Mum will know if it works as Hobson gets a terrible black gunk in his ears and he has always had skin problems. She hates to see him scratch and bite himself even when he doesn't have fleas.

Take good care of yourself
Love from your Aussie friend, Hammer

Butchy & Snickers said...

Hey C-K-C,
Poor Mama, does she have some anti-inflammatory meds to help her knees?? We hope she feels better soon. Our Mama says that when her knees hurt, she can hardly walk so she feels really sorry for your Mama. Have you made any holes in your cuz yet?? and does the squeaky still work? We're trying to get Mama to buy us one. So we're getting opinions from every doggie that has just gotten one of those. BTW, Mama likes your front feet picture the best!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!

All your parts are lovely! I hope your mama's joints are feeling better. Linda has those problems, too. and it is always so boring when she has a flare up because she doesn't want to play.

Nice bits!! My mom is sad because I won't stand still for ultra close-ups!!

I know it's cold there - but imagine we are getting snow tomorrow and it was 70 degrees yesterday - I am very confused!

Wet nose smooches - Dory
