Otter schmotter

Let me make something very clear, I do not look like an otter. Two people have compared me to this weird looking creature and I just don't see the resemblance.

Art classes

I recently started taking some online art classes. I am hoping to further my education and found this great little art college. This is the first picture I drew of myself. I charged my tuition to C's credit card, hopefully she won't mind.

Self-Portrait from San Diego


Here I am in Ajo when I was little. I LOVE AJO! I usually run and dig all day long but the last time I was there I played in the sprinklers and got all muddy. At first I didn't want to get dirty but then, when I saw how crazy it made C I thought "oooohhhhhh, this is a fun game!" I had mud EVERYWHERE, even in my nose holes. C is such a silly human, she tried to wash me twice with a hose but each time I escaped and ran back to my mud mess. She keeps telling me that I am going to Tucson and Douglas soon. I know I have been to Tucson before but I was so young that I don't remember much and I have never been to Douglas. I hope there aren't any monsters there. I think I am staying with my cousin Sophie, I hope she likes me.

More clothes woes

Here is my first shirt from when I was a little girl. Don't show anyone ok?

Trying to sleep

Here I am when I was younger, trying to sleep. C thought it was so funny to high five me, ugh. Humans are so annoying sometimes.

Nap Time

This past Saturday B was out of town for work so C and I were all alone, YESSSS! When it was nap time, C made me a nice little bed on the floor next to her and as soon as she fell asleep I snuck on the bed and curled up next to her feet. When she woke up she made me pinky promise not to tell B that I was on the bed, and I followed through with that promise unlike HER. C totally threw me under the bus, I was so pissed. As soon as B walked through the door C was like "LOLA TOOK A NAP WITH ME ON THE BED." Luckily he wasn't mad at me, but he was mad at her. Ha ha!

Watching TV

Here I am watching the Real Housewives of New Jersey Reunion on Bravo. The sequel is on tonight, don't miss it!!!

Where did B go?

Apparently aliens came and took my old human B and swapped him with a new nicer one. That is the ONLY explanation for his recent behavior. First of all, he is constantly hugging me. I am always on guard - waiting for him to squeeze the life out of me. Then he has been doing this German Techno song and dance for me which I find hilarious. Sometimes when he gets too close I think "ok, this is it, he is going to trample me!" so I try to jump up and bite his bits, but then he always calms down and rubs my belly. Even more odd is his behavior in the mornings. Usually as soon as C walks out the door, he puts me in my kennel so he can get ready for work, like I am going to get in his way or something! Lately though, he has not been putting me in my kennel until he is just about to walk out the door. PLUS, he has been picking up my poopies which I know he HATES to do! I don't know what is up, but I really like this new B.

Silly Humans

My humans are so silly! Everyday when C gets home she asks me what I have been doing all day. I never answer because she would freak out if she knew so I just let her ramble on in her silly baby-talk voice. The truth is, I love it when they leave! As soon as I hear their cars drive away, it is PAR-TAY time! First I move my kennel aside so I can get out of my little environment, then I grab a cold one out of the 'fridge. (DogFish is my favorite beer in case you ever need a gift idea for me.) Then I usually catch up on one of my TV shows. I like to watch Ellen, Animal Planet, Oprah, the Real Housewives, and The Dog Whisperer. I love to take a nap on the human's bed. There is just something about B's pillow that is so comfortable! I have lunch and surf the web for a bit, then when it is time for C to come home I move my kennel back and pretend to play with my toys. One of these days she is going to come home early and won't she be in for a surprise!!


B is working really hard to get on my good side this week. He took me for a run before "work"yesterday AND he snuck me some chicken when C wasn't looking. He has been really nice to me when I kennel up and he actually rubs my belly before he closes the door. I wonder what's up. Maybe he isn't such a bad guy.

Baby Picture Time!

Cute Picture of Me

Seriously, is this not the best picture of me ever? I am so cute!

Monday, June 15, 2009


Here I am showing a Dalmation how to drink water out of the fountain. You can see my cute new collar that I got in San Diego. It is black with white polka dots and lined in pink. B is the one who picked it out. He is growing on me.


Yesterday my humans decided they wanted to torture me and take me to PetsMart to get a bath and have my nails trimmed. I don't know why they hate me sometimes. When I walked in the store I heard all of these dogs screaming "Run Away! Run NOW" so I started freaking out. B and C walked me into the grooming room and it was a mess. There was hair everywhere, dogs were crying, and there was even one little guy sitting all by himself on the floor yelling for his owner to come and save him. I tried to make a run for it out the door but C caught me and told me to chill out.

THANK GOD the girl working the front desk was busy so my humans could get a good look at what was going on. This poor little Schnauzer was having his fur ripped out with a fine tooth comb and he kept telling the girl that it hurt but she would not listen. I kept scratching C and telling her to let me go because there was no way I was going to stay there but she just ignored me. Finally, this little fluffy dog AKA "my guardian angel" walked by and peed all over the floor right by where C was standing and that made her mad. C told B that the place was disgusting and she said she felt sad for the animals who were obviously being mistreated so we walked right out of that room! I have never been so happy in all my life.

After we walked out, C felt so guilty for almost subjecting me to that torture that she bought me a Greenie and a new Tire thing that rolls around. I am such a lucky girl!

Come back G!

This weekend B's brother G came to visit and he brought a friend. I was kind of upset that there were all of these dudes in my house because my weekends are very precious. I tried to bark as much as possible to scare them away but when that did not work I thought maybe if I kept it up I could annoy them into leaving. They did not budge but that was ok because Saturday night all of the boy humans went out and left me and C home by ourselves. We had so much fun! C gave me my favorite treat (bacon flavored snacks) and she even let me sleep on her bed!!! THEN, the next day the boy humans went to the movies and C let me take a nap with her!!! I hope G comes back soon so I can sleep on the comfy human bed.

Funny Picture of Me and B

Best Day Ever

Yesterday was the best day ever. When C got home from “work” (whatever that is) she took me to the dog park. I LOVE the dog park. There are SO many different butts to sniff. There were a lot of mini humans there too for some reason. I tried my hardest not to bark at them because I know C and B hate that. One of the mini humans was especially annoying. He had this little blue ball that he was throwing away from his dog. She just sat there and looked at it so I stepped in to help her out. I ran and got it and brought it back and you’ll never guess what that pesky mini human did, HE THREW IT AGAIN! I looked at him like “What the hell is wrong with you?” We played this little game a few more times when finally I gave up and plopped down. I thought to myself “Go get your own ball.”

Once we got home, C put some olive oil on my kibble and I LOVE when she does that. Instead of eating crunchy rocks, I get crunchy flavored rocks. THEN, and here’s where it gets good, I had to use the ladies room in the middle of the night so C let me out and instead of making me get right back in my kennel, she let me lay in her lap for a while. She scratched my ears and rubbed my belly. I think I might try that again tonight. I am safe as long as B doesn’t wake up and take me out. He actually puts me on my leash to go to the bathroom. Can you believe it? In all fairness, I do try to run away from him and wake up C so she’ll take me out instead, but come on is the leash really necessary? Anyways, it was a great day.

New Clothes Woes

So for some reason my human C thinks it is so funny to dress me up in dog clothes. Look at this shirt. Seriously, it is hideous. Thank GOD they did not make me wear it to the beach, I would have gotten beat up for sure.

My crib or yours?

This is my crib. I am obviously a lot younger in this picture, but this is where all the magic happens.

My Humans

Here are my humans, B and C. They have been married for one year today.

More San Diego pics

Dog Beach, California

Just chillin' at the beach with my new homies.

Meeting the Ocean

My humans took me to San Diego this past weekend. Coming from Arizona you can imagine my surprise when they took me to the beach and tried to get me to go in the ocean. I was like "WTF is that?" It was like the lake my cousin Gracie pushed me into "accidentally" times a million, it was huge!! I had fun though, I'll post more pics later.


This is me.

My name is Lola and I am six months old. I live with my humans B and C in Arizona. C seems to think that I am most likely a labaweenie (part lab and part dachshund.) I am not 100% sure who or what my parents were because I ran away from home when I was really young. I wanted a better life and had dreams of liver flavored treats, fluffy dog beds, and jewel encrusted dog collars.

C is the best, I just love her so much. She gives me ice cubes, let's me drink water out of the bathtub faucet, and always gives me a sample of what she is eating. She is also very funny. She talks to me in this high-pitched baby voice that cracks me up, I'm like "Hello I am six months old, I'm not a baby anymore" but she seems to like it so I don't complain. B is... growing on me. Let's just say I am "fond" of him. He is fun to play with, but he gets so mad when I eat his shoes or underwear. I wish he would just chillax sometimes.
