Movie Review: Beverly Hills Chihuahua

Look what we found on Buzz's dad's phone camera? This is me at 8 weeks old! I was 1.2kg and had to be weighed on the bird scales. Now I'm 10 months old and pushing 7kgs! What a fatty!

Today I'd like to post a brief movie review. Last night we watched Beverly Hills Chihuahua. So many dogs, I didn't know which one to bark at first (but I tried). Buzz would normally get cross with me about this, as it contravenes our Stealth & Cunning Living Arrangement, but she apparently figured if anyone complained about a mysterious barking dog, she can blame the movie. I thought Beverly Hills Chihuahua was a bit annoying, and nowhere near as good as my favourite movie, Wall-E.

In Dog News Today...

I'd like to send a nod and a lick across the pond to Scooter in NZ, possibly the world's smallest dog at 8cm. He eats out of an egg-up and has to wear a purple sock so his owner, Cheryl, doesn't accidentally stand on him.

Scooter'd make me look like a great dane, and I remember well the first time I bumped into one of those! Frightened me half to death, although he was really a very nice dog.

Good luck to you Scooter, I think you are extremely cute and would love to have a little sibling-pup just like you one day! We could play hide and seek together (you could hide in my Kong!).

I'd also like to send my love and get-well-soon wishes to Smokey in the UK. That's way harsh, what happened! But its good that you are doing well, and I promise that you won't miss your sight too much in that eye -- I get along just fine without mine!

Out of office reply

I am currently on hiatus in Novocastria, with Madison Rose and Buzz's mum and dad. I am too busy exploring the yard, convincing Madison that I am her best friend but she should leave my treat toys alone (or else), begging for BBQ chicken, and colonising laps. I will return to my blogging responsibilities as soon as I have a moment to spare.

One More Sleep

Only one more sleep till Buzz's mum and dad come home! That means one more sleep till I see Madison Rose again, and one more sleep until I get some serious backyard activity time. I am SO EXCITED!

I've had a bath, a maniac attack, didn't eat my dinner (don't panic, I'll just get up and get some food out of my Bob-A-Lot later), and now I am trying to calm down.

I wonder if they brought me home some souvenirs? They went to America, where I am reliably informed they have the most magical pet toys, treat dispensers and accessories in the whole world. Puppy-paws crossed!

Ice Ice Puppy

My new most favourite food: coconut ice.

Awmygod such magical burst of lfavour in my mouth. Coconut. Condensed milk. Sugar sugar sugar (icing). Coconut ice makes me act like a crack whore, I can't control how much I want it and will do anything (ANYTHING) to get some. I haven't felt this intense about anything since the last time Buzz brought home a BBQ chook.

How did karma repay my bad behaviour in the park after I decided it would be fun to run up the street, away from Buzz, rather than into the park with all the other dogs? It set the car alarm off while I waited in it while Buzz was at the ATM, that's how.

I have considered my actions, how they upset Buzz and made her endure the unhelpful advice of some middle-aged oaf who considered himself quite the animal behaviour expert, but only managed to distract and further stress her out as she tried to focus on getting my attention. Plus his little bastard dog later attempted (THREE times) to hump my face. Not cool. Initially I thought this was karma's revenge, but then I realised karma wouldn't encourage this kind of offensive assault as an appropriate form of punishment.

Buzz said we are never going back to Tunks Park because it attracts malingerers and inspires bad behaviour, and that we only went their as a last resort because our regular, Primrose, was swarming with little boys playing soccer who should have been at home playing video games like normal kids.
