I'm Back!

Mom and Dad banished me from the computer for a while. They wanted me to focus on eating dumplings, running around, pooping and napping. I am very good at all those things.
Normally Mom and Dad are proud and happy when I poop. They always add it to their collection. These days they have been a bit obsessive.
Mom said I should post these pictures of the bits of metal that I passed today.
She and Daddy seem especially happy, so I will humor them.

I didn't swallow the dice, I guess she wanted you to see how big things were.
Pretty cool huh?

Two Xrays

We have been sifting through Murphy's poop. Now that is love.

We have not found the metal pieces of the razor.

Had another xray this morning, the doc says they are moving just the way they are supposed to.

She also told us the pieces are much smaller than they appear on the xray (the looked big and scary to us!)

Murphy is fine. He is enjoying his dumplings. He gets dumplings with everything now.

He has no idea why we are so concerned about him, but he is enjoying all the attention and of course the food.

Daddy is NOT enjoying the poop sifting.

The doc said one of the pieces of metal looked like it would be coming out soon. We are hopeful.

She said she wasn't worried and we shouldn't be either.

Note From His Mother

Murphy is in SO MUCH TROUBLE!
He chewed and swallowed part of a single edged razor blade.
Took it off the computer desk where Daddy was preparing to cut some contact paper, and chewed it and swalled part of it.
We took him to the vet and got an xray and see the parts in his belly.
So do you know what we get to do for the next couple of days?
Not only do we collect his poop, but we sift through it looking for bits of metal, so we know it has passed.
We are feeding him bread mixed with a variety of his favorite flavors (on doctor's orders) in hopes it will bind, pick up the metal bits and carry them out safely.
Mommy and Daddy are FREAKED OUT.
Your good thoughts are appreciated.
Mommy will post again later to let you know.

All Purpose Feet

Poor Mommy. She does not have good feet like me. They smell good and taste great, but when it is time to romp, she has to put on her outdoor feet.
First she puts on ssaahhks .
Funny word - ssaahhhks......yum yum.
I love ssaahhhks.
After she puts on ssaahhks then she puts on sshhooz.

I love sshhooz. yum yum yum.
Poor Mommy, she does not have all purpose, indoor, outdoor feet like me.

My feet are soft on top, rough on the bottom so I can walk any where I please. I also have webbed toes. I am an excellent swimmer. It took me a while to learn how, but now I love to swim and chase sticks and balls that Mommy throws into the lake.
When Mommy goes out in the kayak I can follow her too. Sometimes she yells at me, but I am an excellent swimmer and like to be with her all the time. I can also help her when it is time for her to get out of the kayak.
I like to be a helpful boy.

Who Do They Think They Are?

They come here, eat my peanuts, flick their tails, and play in my yard as I stare them down from the window.

I do not understand why Mommy and Daddy are so nice to them. They are not that cute. They only do a few tricks. And they don't let me sniff their tummys at all!

Deep Snow and Mud Mystery

The snow is now higher than my ears, not quite higher than my tail, but almost! I have to climb a little mountain to get into my yard. The frozen pinecone cigars are buried, but my nose is pretty good at excavating them if I can get over those mountains!

Mom and I went walking today. She stayed home from work to take care of Daddy who smelled like the hospital when he came home last night. He has been up and about, cooking spaghetti and brownies and sharing his rice pudding with me. He is the BEST DADDY EVER! I love rice pudding and jello and all kinds of special treats that he sneaks to me when Mommy isn't looking. And Daddy's spaghetti is the most delicious food ever!!! Daddy puts alittle on my kibble and I eat it all!

I was taking a look at the truck today when we went to the grocery store (to buy more spaghetti). There is alot of mud on it. It seems strange that there would be mud on the truck when there is so much snow on the ground. I remember Mommy had mud on her jeans when she came home last night and later I heard Daddy talking to Aunt T about digging the truck out of a ditch. I am not sure what a ditch is, but that must be where the mud came from. And Mommy has been tired and taking a few extra naps with me, so it must have been something big.

I like it when we are all home together. I am happiest when we all sleep together in a big cozy pile in bed with lots of pillows and blankies. I bring a bed bone with me for company if I wake up before they do, which is most of the time.

Weekend Wanderings

Humph....my nose is full of saw dust and no one will let me chew the wood in the front room. I believe this is a violation of my rights.
And I wish to lodge a formal complaint about my incarceration every time the men come over to play in the kitchen. I feel I am being unreasonably restricted in my own home!

Mommy and I had many nice walks this weekend. I particularly like rolling in the fresh snow that is soft like the couch. I like to bury my face and roll with my legs in the air to get the most scratchy coolness on my back...yum.

I caught the scent of someone yesterday, walking up the road to the hill...I tried and tried to pull Mommy with me, but she fought back. She was mad too and took me back to the front yard where I just had to stand and sniff the wind and try and figure out who had been around. Luckily she always lets me leave behind a note to trespassers that I am here and this is my neighborhood. She even says good boy, which I like alot. It can be tough lifting a leg when the other is sinking into the snow, but I manage.
