I've got a couple of awards!

Wow! I've just received a couple of awards from Toby the Guide Dog in Training, and they're awesome!  First up is the Happy 101 Award.

The rules for this award are simple: You have to post up the image on your blog. List 10 things that make you happy. Do one of those things. Send this award to 10 of your friends that make you happy.

Well that's easy enough! Here are my 10 things:
1) Sniffing smelly socks
2) Getting some wind in my face during car rides
3) Cuddling up with my Momma
4) Chasing my Pops around the coffee table
5) Take a nap while snuggling GG the Giraffe
6) Getting a snack
7) Going for walkies in the Great Outside
8) Eating pork
9) Playing fetch and wrestling with Leo the Leopard
10) Dragging Ms Crab into my crate for some private time when my Humans aren't looking

The other award is the Sunshine Award.

This one has much easier rules. Just post it up on your blog, and then award it to 12 other bloggers. Oh, and you have to leave comments on their blogs to let them know they've got an award.

So to make things easier, I'll just do what Toby did and award these 2 awards to 12 dog bloggers. Here are my picks (though I'm sure many of them have already gotten these awards before, it never hurts to get more than one award), in no particular order:

1. The Thundering Herd
2. Dog Daze
3. Lorenza
4. Tank
5. The Army of Four
6. Twink
7. Bruschi
8. Santa & 9. Minnie
10. Patsy from Dragonfly Interiors
11. Maggie & Mitch the living plushies
12. Salinger the Pug

While I have your attention, I'd also like to congratulate Toby for reaching his goals before he has to return to school. If you guys helped out, then there's a big thank you for you!!!

Earth Hour at my place

Hey guys! Last Saturday was Earth Hour, so my Humans invited some of their human friends over to spend the evening in the dark! We had the lights off, we had candles out, and the humans (including the "douchey" Uncle Qian) played this game where they stacked bits of wood together and then made it fall apart. The Beagle from down the road says it's such a human thing to do: build things and then destroy them.

This is what Earth Hour looked like

Then they played another game called Taboo, where they picked up pieces of chewy paper and just sort of said a lot of things to each other. At one point, it was just like barking at each other. Funny humans...

Anyway, I found Earth Hour to be really boring. Although there were lots of people over and they brought food, everyone seemed to have forgotten me and didn't bring any dog food. I can't believe they did that. Silly humans. 

PS I saw the Chihuahua couple, Chewie and Cocoa, while on a walk. As usual, Chewie got really jealous when Cocoa came over to flirt with me. That dog is insecure!

My daily "Greet Pops" routine

Hey guys!

Sorry I've not been updating my blog... I've been so happy getting back into my usual routine with Momma! Anyway, since we're talking about routines, I thought I might share a video of what I do everyday when Pops gets back from class.

Momma's home!!!

Yay! Momma's back! Pops was actually planning to go and pick Momma up at the airport, and surprise her with a super-tidy bedroom and flowers, but he was such a silly human and he got the dates wrong! So imagine his surprise when Momma calls up the night before we were planning to go to the airport! Luckily, grandfather was there to pick Momma and grandmother up.

What's in the bag, Momma?


So anyway, Momma got back and she brought snacks!!! Snacks from Sandy Yago! I gobbled one up pretty quickly, so now I'm hoping to get more.

The complete collection

Poor Momma is exhausted now though. She's been walking around like a zombie since she got back. I hope spiders didn't climb into her ear and mind-controlled her. Naw... that only happens to pitbull terriers.

Bad dreams

It's been a week since Momma went away to Sandy Yago, and I haven't been sleeping well lately. I don't know why, but I wake up feeling tired... like I haven't slept properly. Pops says I've been talking in my sleep. I didn't believe him, so he took a video to show me.

I miss my Momma. I hope she comes back soon.

Singalong American Eye-Doll

Since I've been so depressed over Momma's missingness, Pops took me over to Aunt Jol's the other night so that I can play with my brother Knuckles. My grandfather had just gotten back from choir practice and he was watching something on TV called American Eye-Dolls, with a bunch of singing humans. It was like that show that Momma likes to watch, except with less people and no guys with mohawks.

Anyway, here's a video of Knuckles and I singing along!

Alien doggies!

I just go to write a new post for my Pops' blog... about alien dogs! We watched a sneak peek of the new movie Predators, and they had Predator pooches! It was so awesome. They looked really big and ugly of course, like a mutant Doberman or something, but at least they were dogs!

Predator Pooch!

Anyway, you can see my post here.

I got Tagged!

I was scoping out Twinks' blog (did you guys see the post where she's in a bikini?) and apparently she's been tagged by some funny pee-mail thing. And not only that, but she went on and tagged me too!

So anyway, this is what I have to do now:

1. Open my first photo folder
2. Scroll down to the tenth photo
3. Post the photo and tell the story behind it
4. Tag 5 more people

Sounds easy, enough, let's start!

The 10th pic of my first photo folder

This is one of the first pictures my Humans ever took of me. This was taken the night I was brought back to my Furever Home. As you can see, I was a very different looking dog back then... my fur was brown, my ears were droopy, and I was tiny! I'm almost as small as GG the Giraffe! I really don't recognize myself at all!

I was also really really timid, and I was scared of just about everything (I think you can tell from my posture in the photo). I went to hide under my Momma a lot. Even from the beginning, I could tell that this Human loved me and would protect me. 

Anyway, there's my comfy blue blankie that I sleep with every night (from the very beginning!), my orange bed (which has since moved downstairs to become my day-bed) and my very first toy, Mr Elephant!

Guess there wasn't too much story to tell, so now for the next 5 tags!

1: Maggie and Mitch (who are so cute they look no different from their plushies)
2: Tank (the Beagle from down the road's number 1 fan)
3: Jazz and Dixie (because beagles are cool)
4: Dennis the Vizsla (knowing Dennis, the picture is bound to be random and weird!)
5: Bruschi (hope the icky meds are working!)

PS I just heard Momma's voice on the phone! I miss her so much!

5 Second rule - expanded

Remember a while back the Beagle from down the road introduced me to the 5 second rule? Well, now it's been expanded to include clothes too!


My Humans (especially my Pops) have a habit of dropping their clothes on the floor when they're going into the shower, so now I've decided that I can claim them if they've been on the floor for over 5 seconds. I can sniff them, rub my face in them, or when there's a big pile, use them as a bed - I can do whatever I like because I've claimed them!

My brother Knuckles is worse! He likes to steal Aunt Jol's underwear straight from her drawers or off her bed! What about you guys? Do you like stealing claiming human clothes?

Where in the world is Sandy Yago?

This morning, we went to the airport and it was just as I feared! Momma went inside with Grandmother, and then Pops and I drove off without them!!! Hiew hiew hiew!

How will I get to sleep without my Momma to tuck me in?

Pops told me that Momma is going on a holiday to a place in America called Sandy Yago... I'm not sure where that is, but it sounds a bit like a beach of some sort. Pops says she's only going to be gone for 10 days, but that's like 3 dog months!!! I'm going to miss her so much!!!

Actually, I miss her already! I hate the airport!

This is my first night without Momma, and I've spent it hiew hiewing at my Pops. I think he's getting pretty antsy... he must miss Momma as much as I do.

Airport? NOOOOO!!!!

Last night, there was some very unusual stuff going on in the bedroom. Momma was tossing some of her clothes into a big black bag. She doesn't normally do that at all. So I went to check it out.

"What's with the clothes, Momma?
What are you doing?"

So as I snooped around a bit more, she kept piling on and on the clothes, and then started charging up the camera and asking Pops for SD cards and stuff. What's an SD card, anyway? Is it something like a V-day card, like the one Brutus got from Stella? I didn't think so... and something wasn't right.

Then I heard my Humans use the terrifying word: "airport."

Noooo!!! My Momma's going away??? What if she goes away for a long time, like Aunt Mainey and Uncle Eff? What am I going to do without Momma? I'm freaking out here! I don't know what to do!!! What if Momma's leaving me forever? Pops doesn't even know how to give me a bath without getting soap in my eyes!

I'm soooo sad! Hiew hiew hiew!!!

Riding in the back seat now...

Now you guys know that one of my favorite things to do is to go on car rides to get some wind in my face. HOWEVER, my Humans seem to think that I'm getting too big and too old to ride up front with Momma, and it's time for me to learn to sit by myself in the backseat. Well I don't like it!

The view is nicer up here!

There's been a few times now that I've had to sit in the backseat by myself, and it's so boring back there. I have no thing to do but laze around. I really prefer the front, cos either Momma holds me while I stare out the window, or I can be closer to Pops (when Momma's not in the car). Or my favorite: sleeping on Momma's lap.

This is the best feeling in the world

So the other day when Pops put me in the backseat, I scratched it up real good! That'll teach them to dump me behind!

Pops' new animation reel

So all through this week, poor Pops has been up till really really late at night working on his new animation reel to try to get a job. He's really excited about getting a new job as soon as he's done with school, but I'm not sure why. Like, why doesn't he just stay home and play with me all day? If I were a human, I'd stay at home and play with me all day because I'm just soooo cute! After all, I'm a dog! I've got two ears and a nose!

But let's just humor him... he's only human after all.

Anyway, some of you mentioned that you might want to see Pops' animation reel, so here it is below!

There's three new scenes in this version, including one scene that was inspired by me!!! And for those of you that want to see that Vanilla Ice Cream guy, that clip's all the way at the end.

Do you see any resemblance to me?

Now that he's done with that, I'm going to get him to help me with a secret project that I've been wanting to do for a while now! Check back soon!

Random Photo Moment

Last week, Pops got a strange box in the mail. When he opened it, it turned out to be the Sonic toys that he ordered online!

This is my namesake, Sonic!

This is me smelling my namesake

Pops didn't forget about my brother
Knuckles or cousin Tails either

Technically, the toys are more for our humans and not us... but they're still pretty.

PS Sorry for the short post... Pops was hogging the computer all night doing a Vanilla Ice animation for his demo reel. Would you guys want to see that in the next post?

I miss Aunt Mainey

During the weekend, Aunt Mainey packed her bags and went to a place called the "airport" and she hasn't been back for a few days. I keep going into her room thinking she's going to be there, but either she's hiding from me or she's not around. I think she's not around.

I miss the smell of Aunt Mainey's socks

Momma and Pops told me that she's gone back to school and she'll be back again at the end of the year, so I'll look forward to that.

Hurry up and come home, Aunt Mainey! In the meantime, I guess I'll just keep trying to summon you back with Golden Offerings in your room. After all, you're the only member of the family to have stepped on my poop so far.

Growth Chart: 13 months

Oh no! I think I've had my growth spurt already and it's over. I don't think I've grown much over the last couple of months! In fact, I think I'm getting skinnier. Hmm... I'd better start eating more. Pops, you should feed me more snacks!

Now that I'm a year old, I think I've stopped growing...

It's sad that I'm not growing anymore... but I guess at least it means I'm not a puppy, but a full-grown dog now!
