The Itches, part II

Hi All,
Well, I went to the doctor with MOM the other day and she (the doctor) gave me a shot after looking in my ears and at my rash. She kept asking MOM if SHE knew what I had gotten into and if SHE was sure it was an allergy. I think MOM was getting upset with the doctor with the way the doctor was speaking to MOM. I know I didn't like the way the doctor was talking to my MOM.
Anyway, I feel much better now. I barely itch at all. MOM gives me half of a tiny pill at night with my supper so I won't have any more itches.
Now, if MOM could only do something with Travis. He barks at me after MOM puts us in our crates. He's so mean. But when we are outside, he chases me and tries to knock me over until I growl at him and pull on his ear to make him play nice. Just because he's a boy doesn't mean he can be so ruff with me. I have told him to be easy or I will bite - he just doesn't remember it from one day to the next. MOM says it's a boy thing.
Well, I'm going to take a nap so I can play outside later.
Bye for now,

The Itches

Hi Everyone, Gracie here.
Well, I finally convinced MOM to take me to the doctor to get me something for my itches.
I've been itching for about 2 weeks and now have red areas on my body. MOM said she didn't see any red spots just the red areas.
All I know is I ITCH!!!!!
Travis doesn't like it because I get to come out almost every night before MOM goes to bed to cuddle with HER as SHE rubbs my itches ...... it feels sooooooooooo goooooooooooood.
Travis got so mad the other night that the next morning he peed all over his blankies as he was eating his breakfast. EEEEWWWWWWW. That was nasty.
MOM said that I might get to go for a ride with HER after we leave the doctor's office. Hope so.
Well, I'd better go, Travis is looking for MOM so he can tattle on me. He is just so mean.
Bye for now.

I want to lay down

Hi All,
Travis here.

Well, Chloe and Gracie have decided to plot against me!!

I have been watching for the blasted mousie to crawl out of the furnace so I can escort him outside and get rid of him. Unfortunately, he doesn't think he needs to go outside, so I sit with my nose next to the bottom of the furnace just in case he wants help to go out.

Anyway, after all this hard work, I want to take a nap but Chloe and Gracie are stretched out on the couch so there is no room for me. I talked to MOM and told HER the problem but all SHE said was to ask Chloe real nice and she'll let me up there.

I walked over to where Chloe was and asked her real nice like and what did I get??? Gracie looked up and made a face at me and I heard he tell Chloe not to let me up there. I told MOM but SHE said to try again.

I decided I'd rather not so I went out to see if the mousie wanted to go out yet. No such luck.

I think I'm gonna ask MOM if I can go to bed and talk to my blankies - they always have good advice and cuddle with me.

Bye for now.

What Celebrity is Your Dog?

Well, MOM has been at it again. SHE saw on, a test to see what celebs we are like. SHE did it for Gracie and me, so below are the results.

Will Smith - Leading Man

A fresh prince in the persuit of happiness, Travis is megastar Will Smith!

Putting the jazz back in jazzy, Travis is always moving anf grooving to the beat of his own internal drum. Not one to settle for 2nd best, Travis only takes on projects that are sure to draw attention and improve his pawpularity in the pack. Travis's broad appeal across breed, age, and gender lines means that his actions often lead to his being named best in show. Smooth, suave, and debonair ... he's the perfect pet to take home to Mommy. Not lacking in the looks department, Travis's toothy grin would send even the most furious group of alien invaders spinning helplessly back into space.

Oprah : The Host With the Most
When Gracie barks, people listen. Yes, indeed, Gracie is Oprah Winfrey.
A true rags-to-riches story, Gracie is a comeback pet who has not only survived a troubled start, but uses her success to lend a helping paw to others. Well-rounded and hard-working, Gracie has re-written the rules of stardom and continues to spread her influences throughout the animal kingdom. Still a down-home country girl, Gracie's one weakness is the chow that she knows from her youth, and she's not afraid to gobble up a little gravy every now and then. Gracie manages to keep her positive reputation intact, despite being hounded by the press and her thousands of die-hard fans everywhere she goes. Gracie is smart, creative, and innovative and has used these qualities to build up an empire the likes of which have never before been seen.
Personally, I think Gracie should have a description of "diva that tries to destroy anyone who gets in her way. She loves the high life of adoration, pleasure and being waited on hand and paw."
Mine should have been " Travis enjoys being outside hunting, fishing, chasing cats and rabbits. For a good time, he likes to be with close friends, watching the sunset and barbecuing."
But, NNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, MOM liked these descriptions for us.
MOM keeps telling us that she is going to find a job and then we will have to spend more time in our crates. I think SHE is full of it, because when she sits down to listen to the news, SHE will give tummy and ear rubs. How could SHE ever think of leaving us to go to work???? I don't think SHE would last 2 weeks being without us.
Well, I'd better go or I will end up in my crate again. (The reason I'm in it, in this picture was because Gracie said I was picking on her. Little Snitch!!!!!). Gracie is in her crate because she grabbed a ball of MOM's yarn and wouldn't give it back (couldn't happen to a better dog!)
Bye for now, Travis.
