The Smell of a Pug in the Spring

I like the way you folks think. I am thinking that Winsotn and Zelda are maybe just trying to say, “Hey, quit leaving your clothes all over the house!” and since dogs don’t speak english, they pee on stuff. I just need to get a nice steam cleaner and let it do the work! Then we’ll be pee free!
No one has peed in the bed recently, myself included, so the sheets can breathe a sigh of relief. I’m glad I nipped that one before it got out of hand, because that was pretty much the reason we had to get rid of Bella a few years ago, and frankly, there’s just no way that I am giving any animals up. How could I?! Impossible.
In hobo news, Steve was waiting for me outside my work the other day and a hobo asked him if he’d like to see his “bum.” Now I’m thinking, hey, that guy IS a bum, but I wonder what exactly that guy was thinking when he asked Steve if he’d like to have a gander at his ass. Maybe he thought it would start a sexy situation, because you know there’s nothing sexier than an unwashed bottom. Especially an unwashed, un-toilet-papered bottom! Check THIS out!
May I also announced that there are bloomed flowers out here?! WTF! I am not used to this. Flowers, green grass, birds. It’s like I’m living in a Mary Poppins type world. With smelly hobos who like to use their asses as invitations. Amazing.
I am also doing better on the medication today. Though I find I get daily headaches. Does this happen to anyone else? I found I had to do this on Effexor as well, so I’m not surprised, but I read the other day that it’s bad for your liver if you take an ibpruofin every day. MY POOR LIVER! I don’t really drink, so I assume my liver is pretty strong. It can bench press a Golden Girl, FYI. I didn’t know that ibpruofin could actually hurt your liver though. I mean, everything in moderation, right, but I find I need to take at least one ibuprofen every other day at least, and I don’t want to kill the ‘ol liver with medicine.

It’s snowing meds!

Ah, the doctor was actually much better this time.  So now after many weeks of headaches and overall spacey-ness, I am on Cyprolex.  At least, I think that’s how you spell it.  The doctor was nice enough to not plow me with a year’s worth of perscriptions so that I didn’t have to pay a dispensing fee, but damn, keeping your brain healthy is EXPENSIVE!!!
I also had a long talk with the pharmacist about going completely off Effexor, and onto this other stuff, and I’ve got a pretty good program in place now to get me off Effexor while going onto Cyprolex.  So, today on this new stuff I am feeling sort of the same as with Effexor, but in all reality it’s going to take a week for things to start taking effect.
Speaking of effects, it’s always my favourite thing to read off all the “possible side effects” when I get new medication.  My favourite from this new one is “black, tarry stools.”  That is so far beyond the safety zone of anal leakage I don’t even know what to do with myself.  Plus, wouldn’t it be bad enough to experience one of those, say, a tarry stool, let alone the combination of basically shitting asphalt!  Maybe I can pave someone’s driveway and make some extra cash.  *TURN YOUR SYMPTOMS INTO COLD HARD CASH!!!*
I also enjoy when the information packet says “if you experience unusually long-lasting erections, please consult a physician.”  I just want to walk into the pharmacy and explain that I’ve never had an erection before, but damn, this erection I got is lasting for hours!  Maybe I’ll put a banana in my pants, too.  Just for good measure.
Oh yes, and I also have a theory about Zelda’s little piddle party.  She’s done this once before, but I figured something out: she has only peed like that when Steve has slept on the couch.  Now, before you start thinking “ooooh, trouble in paradise!” I have to tell you that Steve is sick again, and was feeling like he was going to puke, and since puke is my ALL-TIME LEAST FAVOURITE THING, he was nice enough to just sleep on the couch so that if he barfed, he didn’t barf near me.  He had to do this a few months ago too, and I’ll be damned if Zelda didn’t pee right in the same spot.  Anyhow, from this, I concluded that Zelda thinks of Steve as her mate, and she gets pissed when he doesn’t come to bed because we all go to bed at the same time, so she thinks I have kicked Steve out of bed, gets mad at me, and pees on my side of the bed.  Eh, eh????  Yes, I think she’s that smart.  And that vindictive!  She is a smart little pooch, so I think she’s actually got a serious thought process around peeing in the same spot on the bed.
In other news, IT IS SNOWING IN VANCOUVER RIGHT NOW!  WTF?!  I move from Calgary to escape the snow, and it follows me!!!!

Really. Big. Tongue.

Is anyone else’s dog’s tongue this big?!  Holy crap.

I don’t know if you knew this

but Giggs has a LAZER EYE. 

Me and my peeps.

We be keepin’ it real.

I gave the dogs some tendon chews

First of all, these chews are stinky! They smell like the ass-end of a cow!  I don’t normally get these for the dogs because of the smell, and the fact that they end up looking like tampons once they chew them for a while.  They were being pretty good on their walk today though, so I thought I’d give them a treat.  They went apeshit for like 2 hours straight with these things!



I just like this photo because Winston is just so overly stoked in the background.

If you’re interested in seeing the whole chewy, delicious set, click on my flickr page!  I warn you, there are some pretty gross looking shots of these chews, but hell, they looked so cute with them I couldn’t resist!

I think they have a cold!

Both my little poopers have runny noses and are kind of coughing a lot.  I’m not sure if I should take them to the vet, or just let them sleep it off.  They’re eating all the same and still have energy, so that’s not different, but seeing them sneeze and cough is a little odd.  They both just got their yearly shots a week or so ago, so that might be why they are kind of ill, but other than that, I can’t really think of anything else that would make them sick…unless they caught a cold at the park?  Can dogs even catch a cold at the dog park?  I didn’t see any sneezing dogs over there last weekend, so I think they caught it from somewhere or something else…

Anyone else had a dog with a cold?  I remember Giggs was sick a little while ago…should they go back to the vet?

New Dog Park!

We found a new dog park the other day on a walk and though we’d take the pups there for a visit. It’s actually fenced in specifically for dogs, so it was a little nicer than the un-fenced area by the seawall…

There was a Jack Russel there that wouldn’t stop humping, well, ANYTHING.  He took quite a fondness to a black dog and just wouldn’t let this other dog rest:

He just kept going…

and going…

and going…

Seriously, this little dog had some game!

Oh yes, and I wasn’t just taking photos of the humper…here’s Winston!

and my little Zelda beeeee!

They must have been at the park like TWO HOURS and they STILL weren’t tired.  I can’t believe it.  These dogs are robots.

She was probably a movie star in a past life.

Oh the pain of it all

I have indigestion.  Oh Lord, I have indigestion.


 I can’t even relay the bathroom experience I just had because it is THAT gruesome.  It’s like I ate a burger off the street!

In other news, it’s my second last day of work!  Yahoo!  Next I will have a few days off to recover from the old job and then start the new one!  Yay!  I am pretty excited about this new job, and I even bought a book on how to work more effectively and efficiently to help me get organized.

That’s one thing you’ll notice about my workspace.  There is paper everywhere.  I can’t seem to file my own projects well, but with everything else, I have a place, and it gets filed.  Why only my stuff?  I do this at home, too!  I put Steve’s stuff away, but my stuff is sort of all over the place.  I daily find myself cleaning up all the stuff I have scattered all over the apartment.  I even gave myself a hook for my keys, and do you think I manage to put them on the hook?  No way! 

I also have a nice working pile of post it notes everywhere.  I don’t think its really the best way to be organized, but it reminds me to do things that I might otherwise forget.  I think…

 Oh yes, and I talked to the doggy helper people and they actually charge a pretty reasonable price to come visit you, your dog, help you devise a plan, and then work out the problems the dog has.  I’d like to hopefully get that going in the next two weeks, and maybe I’ll try sliding Winston’s barking problem in there too so I don’t have to pay double…hmmmm…
