Aloha feaster dudes!
I've snapped my humans into working order and we're finally back to gettin' down with our funky selves. We even went for a fast hunt yesterday and I was SO HAPPY (can you tell from that picture above?). I had so many saved up wigglies from days trapped at home and slow walks that I ran my bum off for almost 3 miles, did a few sprint laps through the bark park and I still was bouncing off the walls by nightfall. That'll teach my folks to keep me at home!
While mom was sick, we spent a lot of time doing some seriously dull indoor things - like laundry. Sure, it's fun to make forts out of clean clothes and thrash through all the folded stuff, and all that static and Naughty Boyness makes Big Pupi and me get a little wrastly with each other...
...but it's just not that energy burn that I need! Man, I am so happy that things have returned to normal. It's supposed to be a whopping 40 degrees today, and I can't wait to expose my freshly shaved back and belly to the wild Chicago air on our run this afternoon. I'm also super pumped for school tomorrow, which will unfortunately be my last day since next weekend Big Pupi is scheduled to volunteer at the Chicagoland Pet Expo and represent his therapy organization. I wanted to go too but mommy said I have to have that special therapy dog bling to get in. Whatever! Being a Naughty Boy is WAAAAAY more fun, and I'll get to sit at home and be manly with dad all afternoon. I bet there will be lots of cheezy snacks and sports. Sweetness.
To get back to my stinky days with sickly humans - my mom was so bored chillin' at home with that flu bug that she took up knitting dog sweaters. This pink one was supposed to be for Big Pupi's 4-lb chihuahua girlfriend Lilly, but due to mom's lack of skills and knowledge about something called "gauge" (thanks for clearing that one up, Beckett's mom!) it wound up being about 2 times too big. And since we don't know any girl doggies that would fit this, we'd like to offer it to any blog dog that can squeeze themselves in. It measures about 14 inches around the chest and 12 inches along the back. It would be good for a pug-type body that has a round rib cage and short shoulder-to-tail measurement. If you're a fit and you would like to have it, send me an email at email@example.com and we'll mail it to you!
In other canine news... I had the craziest thing happen yesterday. A lady approached mom on the sidewalk while Pupi and I were doing our Good Boy business outside, and asked when our next litter was planned. She offered mom a LOT of money for one of our puppies. Ugh... didn't she see our weebles? We lifted our legs sky-high to get that pole! (A lot of folks think that Big Pupi is a lady because of his tiny size, but most folks know that I'm a boy because I ooze beastliness.) Imagine her surprise when she found out that we were both males, neutered, and from a shelter. She was shocked! She couldn't believe that pure bred, friendly, housebroken dogs were available at shelters. Then mom went on and on about how Oprah just adopted a cocker spaniel puppy from PAWS Chicago and the lady was so excited that she said she'll go check out the shelter on Saturday. Woohoo! We LOVE promoting adoption! We hope she falls in love with a pup tomorrow.
But all I can think about right now is my run scheduled for when my breakfast "hits bottom," as mom says. I'm sooooo pumped!
Happy Friday the 13th everyone. You know that every day is the best day of my life, and we can make this date a good thing. Let's see... it's 3/13 today and 3+1+3=7 which is a lucky number. And you can say that it's 3/13/2009 and 3+1+3+2+9=18 which is one of mom's seriuosly lucky numbers. See? It'll be amazing!
Have a wonderful weekend, folks!
