Old? ME? Never! (by Ojo)

Hi hi hi! Ojo here!

Someone called me OLD yesterday! I am not old! I am six! (-ish!)

And I certainly do not feel old! I caught a BIRD the other day!

Tell me honestly, friends. Do I look old to you???

Waiting for Ojo

Sometimes the people say I am too slow. This is because I like to take my time sniffing things. (The people do not stop to appreciate all the amazing things around them. This is very silly of them. Of course, their noses don't work very well either.)

So they often say I am too slow.

But I think Ojo is the one who slows down the Walk.

Just this week I have had to lie down and wait for her three times. Two times I had to wait while she ate Dead Bunny. And the third time it was because she was trying to figure out what to do with a bird.

Yes, Ojo caught a bird that was flying past. Isn't that rude??

The worst part is that she won't share her bunnies. (She did offer to share the bird, but neither of us really wanted it.) So I have to lie here... And wait... While she eats yet another bunny and gets even fatter...


UPDATE: I have now had to wait through THREE dead bunnies this week. Another bunny happened to dead itself in Ojo's mouth on our Walk today. I think Ojo needs to go on a diet.

The forest floor... full of STUFF.

Like dirt and twigs
And bugs and slugs
And leaves and tree fluff
And moss and mud.

And most importantly, it is nice and COOL on a hot sunny day!

Bad thing

Something Bad is happening.

Actually, many Something Bads are happening.

First of all, there is an awful thing around my head. This is terrible! I cannot see properly. It keeps getting caught on the ground and I keep tripping. I cannot go up stairs. And I get stuck on furniture.

This is not funny. Do not laugh. I am very freaked out right now. I do not like this Bad Thing!

Also, my paw hurts. I need to lick it better, but the people keep interrupting me. Or else they stick the Bad Cone Thing on my head. I do not know why they won't let me lick my paw better!?

Also, Car took me to Vet. (I am mad at Car for this. Why would it take me to this place??) And Vet poked a needle in my paw, and then cut it open. They tell me that she did this because they think there is a seed in my paw. But the seed did not come out. That is also a Bad Thing.

Also, the people keep sticking my paw in salty water and holding it there. Why do they get to fuss with my paw when I am not allowed to?

These are all Bad Things.

Friends, do you know about spear grass? We put this on our blog almost every year. Spear grass is not just a Bad Thing, it's a Very Very Bad Thing. It grows all over our city, especially in sunny places that face to the south. The seeds have barbs on them, and when the seeds are dry they get stuck in us Dogs. And if they get stuck in us in the wrong way, the pointy end goes through our skin and then the barbs make them go further and further into our bodies.

Ojo had one in her ear one time that Vet had to cut out. Another Dog friend had one going in towards his eye, which was very scary for his people. And the people say that I might now have one in my paw.

Somehow I might have a seed in my paw, even though our person won't let us go anywhere near spear grass. Even though we're not allowed to walk at some of our favourite places right now because of the dry spear grass. Even though our person checks us over after each walk, including between our toes.

Even though all of these things happen, apparently I still found some some spear grass. (I guess I am very talented?)

Here is a picture of one kind of spear grass that grows here. It is also called fox tail grass, and there are other kinds too. The humans can check - if it is spear grass, they will be able to feel the barbs and the seeds will go only one way through their fingers but stick when trying to go the other way.

Please friends, stay away from the spear grass. Do not end up with a Bad Thing in your paw, or a Bad Thing around your head like me!

Daisy Portraits

Dear friends,

My person asked me to do the thing called "strike a pose" in the daisies. This is where I hold still while she points big-black-eye at me, and then gives me cheese.

This is my serious face. Because posing for cheese is serious business, you know.

And this is my wistful face.
What do you think? Don't the daisies bring out my ears nicely?

Ball play! (by Ojo)

Hi hi hi! Ojo here!

My Ball fell in the water!

Got it!

Oops! Look at that! It fell in the water again!

I'll get it!

Oops, it fell again!

I'll get it!

What? Why are you looking at me like that?
