Wowza!
With all the excitement going on over here I almost completely forgot about my birthay. It just kinda snuck up on me and ~POUNCE~ one year older.
I do believe I am getting even more hansome as the days go on.

P.S. I forgot if I told you or not...Heidi found her family. They came to pick her up Sunday night! Her real name is Cookie that's why she answered to Heidi - same sounding end. The "Y" sound is very pronounced in both. Her Mate Fonzi is still missing. So anyone in Chicagoland if you come accross a black and red male GSD let us know.

Found Lost German Shepherd Dog - Looking for her Family

URGENT!!!
Please Copy this message into your Dogster Page ESPECIALLY IF YOU LIVE IN OR AROUND ILLINOIS!!!

During the Snow Storm Today I found a Female GSD near Harpo Studios -The Oprah Show. Specifically 2 blocks down at Carpenter and Lake.
She is a black & Tan - slightly grizzled but NOT sable. Wearing a Collar with no tags. I drove for an hour and a half through the traffic caused by the storm to my house and during that time I called out every name I could think of. I got no reaction to any name except Heidi - she picked up her head and moved toward the driver's seat from the back of my SUV for a head scratch. So, that's what I've been calling her.

The vet said she is at least 3 years old and she does not have a micro chip.

I'm told she's looks like she's been out for over a week.

She is dog friendly and cat friendly because I have 3 German Shepherd Dogs and a cat and she reacted well to seeing all of them.
She is very sweet and curious. If we lived in a city that didn't have a pet limit we might be considering keeping her if her owners are not found. But unfortunately this cannot be the case. So we need to find he owners ASAP or we'll have to turn her over to someone.

Here are some Photos posted on the Craigslist advertisement that we took really quickly before giving her the bath. She looks a little nervous in them but she's not a nervous dog. She was very curious and couldn't stop sniffing and investigating to take a good photo. We know her family is searching for her.

Please call or Contact us through Heidi's page on Dogster

Look at the Sadness in her Eyes! Your Dog misses you.

Momma got hurt at work.
One of the doggies tried to attack another dog through her legs. When she tried to move out of the way before she broke it up he attached onto her left leg right above the knee cap.

Poor Momma.

 

Training your human - Author Unknown

February 4th 2011 7:04 pm
[ Leave A Comment ]

Training your human is a thankless task.
"Why bother with it?", some kittens may ask.
The fate of the world is the issue at hand,
as felines worldwide stake a claim for their land.
Make no bones about it, we cats own the joint.
We spray in the corners to drive home the point.

Some say the meek shall inherit the Earth,
But they've no fangs or claws, for what that's worth.
The cat is the ultimate species, you see,
We're poised to usurp man's authority.
These silly old humans who cannot play nice!
We cats are peaceful, we hate only mice.

Just what does training your human entail?
A host of fun things you must do without fail:
The sofas and rugs need a little makeover.
The La-Z-Boy's target for kitty takeover.
Then sleep on clean towels placed in the guest bath.
And make their best clothing a target of wrath.

Tear down those new drapes with a quick forceful tug.
Then tatter the pile of the new Berber rug.
And when they are sleeping, you block off their nose,
paw at their lower lip, chew on their toes.
Strut on the mantle. If they give any flack,
knock down their trophies and all bric-a-brac.

Shed on mom's new velvet black evening gown,
as she's headed out for a night on the town.
If they leave you home all alone for the night,
(Any human doing this can't be all that bright),
They're telling you by leaving, it's perfectly all right,
To totally redecorate 'til dawn's early light.
Knock over tables and chew up the fern.
Hurry, go faster! Soon, they'll return...

When they try to punish, you mustn't show concern.
(All attempts of discipline a pussycat should spurn.)
A snide flick of tail will convey no remorse,
but they will try harder to scold you, of course!
So, hide in the closet until they forget,
and then launch out just like an F-14 jet.

Tear up their ankle, their forearm, their hand,
then when they've had all the pain they can stand,
dart from the room while they call 9-1-1,
and celebrate victory: The felines have won!
To humans, however, the battle's begun,
as they steep in their anger and wish for a gun.

Pathetic and lumbering and clumsy to boot,
My friend, human dominance is really a hoot.
Take charge in your home. It's destiny, meow.
(The verses above have already told how.)
So sleep for an hour, and then grab some chow,
And then train your human, beginning right now.

My Love's Reply to my Tag

My lovely girlfriend Midnight always shares her games and oppinions with me. She lives in Zimbabwe so somethings in her everyday world are quite different from ours here in Midwestern America.

Here is her reply for the "5 THINGS THAT THE HUMANS DO THAT ANNOYS ME" game. It was sent via Dogsters' site hence the Woofed from, MOL!

Subject: Re: 5 THINGS THAT THE HUMANS DO THAT ANNOYS ME

Oh, no my sweetie!
Five things you have! I hope you don't have more than these five to be annoyed.
I don't even know of one thing that annoys me, really.

1) Your number one for us is also true, but we never cared for table scraps anyways, but May and Janie would be offered occasionally some best pieces of non-toxic (not cooked in onion, garlic, etc) meat when humans are eating, just because they are always curious about what humans are eating. Once offered they'd sniff it, lick it and sometimes eat a smallest piece.
Our doggies get all the scraps from humans and from us as well, because we are only offered freshest stuff.

2) Your number two for us is in reverse. We get to go out of the yard, Just because we can jump and climb. Doggies are not allowed to go past the gate, because if they bite other humans outside - our humans are in BIG trouble.
Also we get to sleep in the house at night, but doggies go sleep on a veranda or in the yard even in winter (our winters are not cold for them).

3) We get any toys we want and don't want. Mia has only one big toy to throw for her. But we are not really toy people. We all, including Mia, love to play with each other, rats, mice and birds. Johnie once gave his catnip toy to Mia to play with, she chewed it up and didn't like it.

4) About Catster it's true with all of us, but if mom ever ventures there - Mia's social life comes last.

5) Mom makes sure that during the day - all the doors are securely open everywhere and when doors get closed at night to the outside - mom makes sure all five of us are in the house. But then we know that all windows are open at all times. Mom says - "don't close door in on a cat, you can hurt their feelings. If they go out of the window - they come back the same way as their choice".

See, my five things don't go by the rules of the game, but if you don't mind I'll post other five things: something like above, to be in your tag game.

Love you lots, and just because we don't pop by to catster all that much - it doesn't mean I don't care, because I care about you very much.

I know that your humans are very busy, but I also know that you love me too.

Your Midnight.

:==: :==: :==: :==: :==: :==: :==: :==: :==: :==:

My reply to her and answer to some of the unanswered questions in my answers to the tag game.

To Midnight:

You are so right. I do love you so much, Midnight. You are my sun, stars, and moon. And I love you more than words.
My family doesn't mean to shut me in doors...but sometimes they do it by accident because I sneak in the room when I am stalking around the house. Then I see something fun to hide in or get a closer look at and they leave the room and shut the door.
We like to keep all our energy in the main house so extra rooms get closed to keep the heat or air conditioning out of them. This saves money and energy.

I don't mind that you changed the game. That's just another reason why I love you. You move to your own beat. Very Independant Spirit and very loving at the same time.

Believe it or not it was very hard for me to find 5 things that annoy me as well. I really had to think very hard because my life is very pawsome and special. My family loves me and even though I was able to find a few things that "annoy me" about them they really aren't that troubling. I am a very happy boy :)
Purrs and Love to you.
Love,
Your Little J.

Kiss Kiss Purrs to you.

:==: :==: :==: :==: :==: :==: :==: :==: :==: :==:

Love you, Midnight. I hope you are not upset in any way that I shared this informaion. I love you very much and I will be happy to pull it if you find it a bit on the personal nature.

You just make me so happy I like to share some of our adventures with others.

Love,
Little J.

Gidget tagged me and in her words "MY GOOD FRIEND SKYLAR TAGGED ME. JUST FOR FUN,MOM LOOKED TO SEE WHERE DA TAG STARTED,AND HERE IS WHAT WE FOUND.
SKYLAR TAGGED ME,AND I SAW HE HAD BEEN TAGGED BY RIVER. RIVER HAD BEEN TAGGED BY MILO,AND MILO WAS TAGGED BY KARMA KITTY. DAT BEES COOL,CAUSE THEY ALL BEES MY FRIENDS!
ALRIGHT,TO ANSWER DIS TAGGING ROUND'S QUESTIONS..."

5 THINGS THAT THE HUMANS DO THAT ANNOYS ME

(1) The doggies get table scraps and the kitties don’t because of my earlier actions as kitty mooch.
2) The dogs get to go outside and we are stuck indoors. If we go out for a quick frolic in the backyard we are quickly escorted back in the house.
3) The doggies get replacement toys whenever they tear them - or even before they tear them, but when the doggies eat our toys we just lose toys. We are expected to play with the doggies small toys.
4) Momma has better things to do then keep up with my Catster page and my friends. I need to have a social life too.
(5) When the people accidentally close me in a bedroom or pantry.

Momma Got an Email about Iams cat food Recall :(

OR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - CINCINNATI, June 9, 2010 – The Procter & Gamble Company (P&G) (NYSE:PG) is voluntarily recalling specific lots of its Iams canned cat food in North America as a precautionary measure. Diagnostic testing indicated that the product may contain insufficient levels of thiamine (Vitamin B1), which is essential for cats. Cats that were fed these canned products as their only food are at greater risk for developing signs of thiamine deficiency.

The following Iams canned cat foods are included:

Product Name


Date on Bottom of Can
Iams ProActive Health canned Cat and Kitten Food – all varieties of 3 oz & 5.5 oz cans 09/2011 to 06/2012

This recall is limited to only Iams canned cat food distributed in North America. No other Iams pet food is involved.

Early signs of thiamine deficiency may include loss of appetite, salivation, vomiting and weight loss. In advanced cases, signs may include ventroflexion (downward curving) of the neck, wobbly gait, falling, circling and seizures. Contact your veterinarian immediately if your cat is displaying any of these signs. If treated promptly, thiamine deficiency is typically reversible.

Consumers who have purchased canned cat food with these codes should discard it. For further information or a product refund call P&G toll-free at 877-340-8826 (Monday – Friday, 9:00 AM to

We are very sad today because I just found out that our Cousin Bandit passed away. He was only 12 yrs old. I know that is old to me because I am only about 2 yrs old but for a cat that is pretty young -I guess mid old. Some cats are lucky enough to make it into their twenties.
This is very sad news. Momma's Mom didn't even tell her it happened she had to find out today from her grandmother. That is so sad.
Bandit Bo we will miss you terribly. Too bad we didn't get to hang out more during your lifetime. We would have been great friends and kinder companions.
Your Cousin,
Little J.
