Kip likes catnip!

I noticed that whenever mum gives Fritz this green, leafy treat, he gets so excited. He goes charging across the room and then headbutts her hand so that more of it spills out of the packaging. Then he sniffs it for a couple of seconds, then rolls around in it, and then finally eats the stuff. One day, I wondered what all the fuss was about, so I tried some. That stuff is yummy! Now we both get excited when we see the bag coming out of the cabinet. Fritz told me that this vegetable-like snack is called "catnip" for a reason — it's for cats! I think he's just saying that so he can have it all to himself. How greedy of him... and mum is always calling him a sweet boy. Hmmm, maybe he learned his sharing skills (or lack thereof) from li'l old me! ;)

Do these things work?

Anyone who knows me knows I can't stand thunderstorms. They make me so nervous that I pace and I pant like crazy! Mum has tried just about every trick in the book attempting to calm me down, but she has been unsuccessful thus far. Then her friend at work told her about Thundershirts. She initially thought this was something a member of an 80s hair band might wear, but it was explained to her that you'd put one on an anxious dog and the pressure it applies to the pooch is supposedly soothing. I'm not really a fan of clothing to begin with and a garment that sounds heavy and/or tight would probably make me feel even more uncomfortable! Even when I envision myself wearing such a shirt, I look tense... :(

If Fritz wore a collar...

it would look something like this — except not purple! Ever since mum brought him home, she wanted to do the responsible thing and have him wear a collar. Unfortunately, the crazy boy simply won't have it. He'll go berserk and run all over the house doing whatever he can to get the thing off of his neck as quickly as possible! And I thought I had a negative reaction about wearing clothes. I'm not nearly as dramatic. ;)

Happy 4th!

I've already had my hot dog... I hope all of the other pups out there get one too! :9 Have a happy and safe holiday all — even though I'm personally afraid of fireworks myself. :(
