Puppy Tales from Clara

Nov 14, 2007
Being such an old girl I have gained valuable knowledge, some fleas, a couple of booboos, and lots of love. Let me share with you some of the more important stuff.

First and foremost - FOOD! I love to eat and my two legged assistant always has food in my dish and fresh water for me. You may think that as long as it smells good and tastes good, it's good for you. Nope! My personal assistant knows about nutrition and tells me that my food makes me play better and look more beautiful. Those are two very important qualities for any puppy. You could always fit in a pizza crust or dropped burger when the occasion presents itself but I recommend you eat the food in your dish first.

If you give a sad look to your two legged assistant or hold your front foot up you might get an extra treat when she has the bag out. I also do a couple of easy tricks to extend the session, roll over and speak are very easy to master. You can learn various methods from your assistant or the other neighborhood dogs.

The big brown and white dog up the street told me he wasn't allowed to eat a full dinner anymore and only got half of his treats till he lost something, something the guy in the white coat and his two legged assistant were concerned about. They made him eat stuff that was called a lose weight drug, yuck! He isn't much fun to play with anyway... runs too slow and his tail smells funny.

Sometimes I would get into something my two legged assistant didn't like, the neighbor's garbage can for example, and it would make me feel all yucky inside and my tail area smelled funny. She gave me some pet medications, and when she wasn't angry with me anymore, I always felt better. Especially since she cleverly hid the pet medications in a chunk of lunch meat or slice of cheese. Now that's a pets rx I can live with! Sometimes you can even manage to just eat the meat and spit the pet meds back out. That way you can get another chunk or two of meat or cheese ... yummm.

Note to the uninformed, don't drink the cool water out of the white chair because your two legged assistant will not like it, no matter how good you think it is! If you step in your dish and spill it all out by accident or drink it all up, just pick the dish up in your mouth & take it to your personal two legged assistant for a quick refill. Smaller dogs can look at the dish a lot and walk to it repeatedly to signal it's empty. When outside its ok to drink out of puddles and streams, although sometimes you might get in trouble, most times it works just fine.

Mail carriers are not all bad... sometimes she brings my two legged assistant a box from the pet pharmacy and she even has a few treats in her bag for me from time to time. The meter reader never gives me a goodie so I like to bark at him a lot, my two legged assistant doesn't understand this. She says I need doggie downers but things like the meter reader, lightening, and fireworks just require a reaction. But to order pet meds for me my petter must really love me. She tells me so all the time and pets me a lot so I'll believe her. I know I love her, guess it goes both ways.

Well pups, it's time for another pass by my food dish. It a good idea to check it every now and then in case something new falls in there. I love it when that happens!
