Assist Protect Defend

Assist Protect Defend
Yesterday on our walk we got to meet a MP! MP is Military Police. He was doing his duty patrolling the neighborhood and keeping it safe. He liked us too and got down so we could meet him and we both liked him very
much. I (China) don't like just anyone and I really liked him so much that I wanted him to pet me! I knew we were on the same page because the MP's motto is Assist, Protect, Defend and that is my motto too! I think that job is the coolest ever! Mom says I do my duty very well and always Assist, Protect, and Defend whenever needed. I would sign up to be his K9 but I already have the most important job in the world to be my Mom and Papa's K9 and I love it. Oh and Madie was going bonkers over him like a nut, she's always a nut but she was really nuttier than nutty. I guess I can't blame her too much cuz I had stars in my eyes too. We wish we could have gotten a photo with the MP but Mom and Papa didn't have the camera since we were on our evening walk. But we are glad we got to tell the MP how much we appreciate what he does.

Our Interview by Zim of the AO4

Hi everybody! Cool Zim from AO4 is giving us an interview! Here are his questions!
1. Your mom is a real talented, creative lady! Do either of you get to help her with her projects?
Well Zimmie, this is a tough question...
China: I always watch over and protect Mom from any harm so while she is being creative I keep watch...it's a very important job! I also will sneak in some of my fur to try and help but she always picks it off...I don't know why because I think it adds a nice texture to her work!
Madie: Umm most of the time I'm snoozing on the couch while Mom does her work, BUT I do sometimes try to find out what she's doing and see if she needs any help. I give her play breaks too(I'm sure you know how important a quick game of tug is for creativity). Sometimes I sneak up on the table and look over what she's doing, I try not to mess anything up and if Mom finds out she gets mad at me for getting up on the table.

2. Madie, how do you like California?
California is grrrrrrrrrreeeeeeeaaAATTT!!! I get to sniff all kinds of different stuff like bunny trails and lizard stomping grounds! AND we get to go for WAY more walks out here it's way fun! Oh and we get to check all kinds of pee-mail!3. China, you lived there before, didn't you? Do you remember stuff there?
Oh yeah, I was one happy Dog when I saw the desert again! I love it out here and I want to chase Jack Rabbits again but Mom and Papa won't let me. Oh and lizards too! I love not having to walk in grass all the time too...grass is kinda icky and it's seems to be always wet.
4. Is one of you the alpha over the other? And if so, who reigns supreme?
China: HAHA Of course I am the Queen! I'm bigger, I'm older, I have big teeth and I ain't afraid to use 'em! But of course I let my puppy do stuff like a good Queen always does.
Madie: Well China may be the Queen but she's just a figurehead like any royalty is...I am the true mastermind! I may roll over for her, but I always get my way...eventually.
5. Any cool bugs there in the desert?
Crickets, we love to chase the crickets, and silver fish...oh and earwigs!

Here are the rules if you want us to interview you:
1. If you are interested in being interviewed, leave us a comment saying, 'interview me.'
2. We will respond by posting five questions for you. We get to pick the questions.
3. You will update your blog with a post containing your answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

In our new home!

Hi everypuppy! Sorry we haven't blogged in a long time, we tried to get Mom to post for us but she kept putting it off. Sure wish we could do it ourselves!
This picture of us is at the very top of our new stairs we sometimes wait up there if Mom or Papa keep going back and forth. The stairs are fun to run up but it does get a little tiring.

We got a cool back yard too it's got lots of places to sniff with rocks and a patch of grass too.The sprinklers make a puddle in the back too and it's fun to walk through and stuff. Mom doesn't like that much...heehee!

Licks'n'Sniffs,
China & Madie

California here we come!

The house was all empty and Mom and Papa were putting everything left in the car...we didn't know if we were going or gonna be left behind! These are our best "please take us with you" faces...and guess what!?!?! It worked and we got to go!
Madie got to drive a little too. We left Georgia, drove through Alabamhama, and pee'd in Mississi-pee...
Snuggled with Papa at a motel...
Passed by Okalahohoma, skipped through Texlexus...
Snoozed throuh New Meheeco, flew throuh Arizarona...
...and after 5 days of driving FINALLY got to California!!!

Ivy's Ave and Tanner's Car

Guess what? Papa was in Alabama and saw a road called Ivy Ave...we wonder if Ivy knows she has an Ave!
OH and then Mom saw a car that had a license plate that said TANNER so we think Tanner might be leading a double life and moonlighting in South Carolina! Too bad she didn't get a photo!

Hey! Where did our stuff go?!

Mom gave us some Frosty Paws for being banished outside and it was hot but at least we had shade while the "movers" were here.
While we were banished in the backyard today the "movers" took all our stuff! We think they should be called "takers" instead!!!

Thursday, July 26, 2007

What's goin' on with our stuff?

Well lately there have been these people coming to our home and Mom says they are movers and they must be cuz they move around our stuff and put stuff in boxes and everything! We end up banished in our kennels or in the backyard! That's so not fair! The ruby slippers got packed up too so we never got to try out our theory...bummer! Well, last time this happened we also went for a long car ride and lived in a new place...we wonder will the new place be fun? Mom says it's all the way on the other side of the country in California!

Will Ruby Slippers take us to Kansas?

Today is Zim's Zim-aversary amd Zim said anyone who wanted to come visit for the party was welcome to. We really would love to visit Zim but we don't know how to get there...then we remembered Zimmie chewing up his Mom's Ruby Slippers and that's why they can't leave Kansas again. So we thought that maybe if we chew up some Ruby Slippers they would take us to Kansas to visit Zimmie! What if we chew them and say "There's no place like Zimmie's" do you think it would work? Mom said we better not chew up her shoes, so we need to make sure it would work before trying it out!

Yummy Bubbles!!!!!!

Mom and Papa bought us some doggie bubbles that are flavored peanut butter and another that's flavored BBQ! China didn't like them at first but once she got a good taste of them she changed her mind! We had so much fun!
Now here's a video of us catching the bubbles! Now watch closely at the end you will see that China punked me and wouldn't let me get the bubbles! Mom and Papa didn't know what was happening until they saw the video! They were wondering why I wasn't catching them as much when I love them the bestest ever! China sometimes punks me like that though she'll give me the evil eyes and then the next instant give Mom or Papa the sweet eyes...it's so not right! Once Mom and Papa knew what was happening they let us play with the bubbles separately so we could both have some.
