Big Update from a Big Girl!

So much to tell everybody! First Ceci spent days ignoring me and playing in the kitchen. DAYS. Then she left me home alone for the longest time EVER. I was so happy to see her when she came home! But then she put me in my house which always means we are going on an adventure!

She took me to Grandma and Captain's house! I love them! They are always so happy to see me and play with me and they always give me treats! But, Roux lives there and I'm still mad at her for attacking me. Ceci tricked me into playing with Roux. At first I was scared, but Roux was really nice and Ceci sat on the floor with us to keep a really close eye so I knew I was safe. After about an hour, Roux and I were BFFs again. We played all night while the humans watched the Oscars.

Oh! I got the best treats ever from Captain! Captain made them himself in his kitchen! They are SOOOO good. Ceci said not to tell anyone that she took a bite of one, but I'm mad at her (I'll get to that in a minute) so there!

I am getting SOOO big! Look! It might be hard to tell, but the picture on the left is the first day I came home. If you look really close you can see my back leg above the pink dolphin. I didn't take up much room in Lestat's carrier at all!

The picture on the right is just a couple days old. I take up ALL of the carrier now!

Also, you should know my new favorite thing in the world is frozen baby carrots! Ceci puts them in the freezer for me and they feel so good on my sharp little teeth and gums. I get so excited when she gives me one! Also, Ceci gave a me a step stool so I can get up on the couch all by myself! She's annoyed because she knows I'm big enough to jump up by myself, but I won't. She's not the only one in this house that does what she wants.

Ceci took me to Petsmart today and I was a good girl! I don't really understand the whole leash thing, but whatever. I was still good so Ceci bought me a pretty heart with my name and phone number on it for my collar. I look so pretty!

When we got home, I had dinner and was ready to play. Ceci played with me for a while, then her computer beeped at her and she had to go talk to it. I jumped up on the couch behind her and bit her hair. Deee-licious! She said NO! I bit her again. She clapped her hands and said NOO again. I bit her AGAIN, this time I put my claws on her head, too! She banged something on the table and said NOOO and turned around to talk to me. I bit and clawed her hand! Best game ever! But, then she made a different scream, grabbed her hand and popped me on my butt! My first spanking! I don't think Ceci understands the rules because THAT IS NOT HOW WE PLAY THE BITE CECI GAME! Rude!

She showed me her hand and there was some red stuff leaking out of it. Eww! I still don't know why she spanked me. All I was doing was playing with her. I mean, what the heck does NO mean? And the loud clapping and banging used to scare me and end the game, but not anymore. Sometimes she plays hide and seek with me when I bite her. She goes away for a while and I cry for a minute and then she finally comes back and I get to bite her again. So much fun!

It didn't even hurt. I just went away because I didn't want her to get that gross red goo on me. She's so rude.

Ok, I'm going to go destroy something in an act of revenge! Oh, maybe the new lamp! Goodnight!

Auggie Doggie Daaawwwg!

Ceci just called me "Stinky McPinkbelly". She's so weird! That is not my name! My name is Auggie when I'm good and Augustus when she's not happy.

I forgot to tell everyone that I met my friend Lucy last week. She lives with a cool guy named John Mack. They are so nice! Lucy shared her dinner with me! My tummy got so big that night!

Lucy is 112 years old! (That's 16 to you humans) She's so smart, she knows much more about things than any dog I know. I'm not saying Roux is dumb, but all she does is talk about Be Ay El Els. Whatever that is.

When Lucy and I were getting to know each other better by sniffing each others tail holes she said I didn't have a dirty lipstick. Lucy said that's what boy dogs have. I told her I'm a girl! Duh! And you know what Lucy told me? Auggie Earl is a boy's name! I was so mad and confused! I didn't think Ceci would do something mean to me. But she does keep trying to make me play with Roux even though she's scary so maybe she is mean!

Ceci and I sat down and had a long talk. She told me about the two men I was named after: Augustus McCrae and Robert Earl Keen. I remember dancy-dancing to Robert Earl Keen on my first day at Ceci's house. I like him! And Augustus McCrae sounds like a really cool guy, too. So, we're cool now.

My teeth hurt really bad and Ceci is being a meanie head and won't let me chew on her. I have to go find my green squeaky thing. Bye-bye!

Rub a Dub Dub

I've got a pretty good life. I get to run and play and sleep whenever I want. Ceci almost always leaves the back door open so I can run inside and outside whenever I want! And I've been such a good girl! I never get yelled at unless I bite Ceci too much. But the worst thing EVER is bath time.

Bath time is when you have to get in a big white bowl that's all wet and loud. Ceci gets in first then she comes back later for me. I got lots of petting but it doesn't make it better. Today I figured out how to jump out of the big white bowl. Ceci didn't like that. The third time, she was REALLY mad. I made a big wet mess in the bathroom!

When we were finally done Ceci was wrapping me in my towel and I escaped! I ran in two circles through the house then I saw the back door was open! Ceci almost caught me, but I made it outside. She finally caught me before I could roll around and dry of in the grass and made me go back in and dry off with a towel. I don't know why I had to wear a towel because she wasn't wearing one. Even when we went outside!

I'm going to try to never get stinky again so I never have to have bath time ever again!

New Puppy!

I know why Ceci always keeps her bedroom door closed, she's hiding another puppy in there!

Bites, Jumps, and Faints

It's been a very exciting couple of days. Sunday was the Superbowl, and Ceci dropped me off at her parents house because she said she had to go to the airport to pick up Gaki & Papa. No one was home when we got there, so I had to go in Roux's house. I wasn't in there too long before Grandma, Captain, and Aunt Rhonda came home and fed me! I was so excited to see them and to finally get to play with Roux! After my dinner, I went to find Roux in the kitchen and she bit me!

I was so scared! I thought Roux was my best friend! Why would she bite me? I screamed and cried for Ceci, but she wasn't there! I tried to hide but Captain was yelling at Roux and dragging her into her house and that was scary, too. Aunt Rhonda wanted to help but I wanted Ceci so I kept screaming. Grandma finally picked me up and checked my little body for "ouchies". I didn't have any but I was still scared.

Ceci finally came back, but Gaki & Papa weren't with her. She wasn't happy. I sat in her lap and licked her while we watched the Superbowl. I learned a bunch of new words! Captain went and got Gaki and Papa. Papa's got the best tasting shoes I've ever licked. Gaki's shoes have something she calls "bling" on them. It's fun to bite, but she doesn't like for me to do that.

I also got my very first bath this week. I'm not sure how I feel about all that yet.

Ceci woke me up last night because I had an accident in my sleep. I didn't even know I did! We spent a loooong time on google and she thinks I'm ok, but I might get to go see someone named Vet if it happens again or if I stop playing.

I'm getting bigger! Everyone says so. Ceci says my teeth are growing bigger and sharper everyday. That must be why they hurt all the time. If I chew on something they feel better. I have lots of toys to chew on, but pretty much anything makes a good chew toy. Any part of Ceci, the table, the couch, pillows, blankets, leaves, sticks. Anything!

I thought because I was bigger I could do things I couldn't do before, but not yet. I just get so mad that I can't jump on the couch by myself. Ceci will help me up if I stand with my front paws on it. But I want to do it myself! Sometimes I try to run and jump, but I just fall down. Ceci says she's not laughing at me, but I think she is.

Ceci fell down today and I didn't laugh at her. She was kinda wet, so I tried to help by licking her dry like I do to her legs when she gets out of the shower. But she didn't just take a shower. And I don't think I helped because she just went to sleep instead. So, I just lay down with her in the hall until she woke up again. But then she just fed me lunch and went back to bed. I think she was sick because she made the same soft noises I make when I'm not happy. She also said some of the words I learned when we watched the Superbowl.

She's awake now and looks better, we even played for a little bit! Which is good, because if she didn't I think she would have to go to see Vet, too.
