I like to eat... Eat... Eat...

Apples and Bananas!

Hi everyone... Wag! Wag!

It's me! Julio! Mommy's in a lot of pain, so I was able to get to the laptop (actuallly, I'm borrowing the wireless keyboard). She just said "fine, but if you mess up my readership stats, I'll get mad and you won't get on the bed for another week." I reminded her she doesn't know how to see her readership stats, just her RSS subscription stats and friends list stats. But she doesn't know anything about how many people visit her LJ. She called me a smartass.

Guess what I did this week? I licked Mommy's apple and ate four bananas off the counter. Aren't you proud of me? Mommy was really mad when she figured that out. Almost as mad as when I nearly knocked her over after I saw my friends. And now she's concerned because my relief habits are different. I'm not sure why guide dog mommies and daddies get so worried about when we do a #2.

Shoot. I forgot to turn off
and Mom's listening to what I'm writing. She says I can't talk about relief habits on the blog. I don't know why? She does it all the time verbally. Stupid human.

Hmm... What else should I write? It's been cold here. Mommy makes me go out some, but not too much. She doesn't like the cold because it hurts her foot, lower leg and knee bad. I don't like it either. I was a
West Coast pup
and it never got so close to or lower than zero.

What else. Maybe mom will be less annoyed with me if I go tell you all that if you haven't gotten herbook yet, you should know I make a lot of appearances in it. It's a pretty good book, even if she didn't give me a copy. I thought it'd make a good meal, but Mom doesn't think so. She says that I've eaten enough and that since I ate her homework once, I've gotten my taste of paper.

Oh, one more thing. I'm good at making friends. I think her physical therapist and counselor like me. Physical therapy is interesting. It's the first time I've ever gone back with her, and they do some interesting things. Mommy learns stuff to do, which involves stuff on the floor. Then I help her with her exercises by bringing her my new squeaky bone and squeaking it for her.

OOH, that reminds me. Guess what I got for Christmas? A jingle collar for when I'm at home and playing so Mom knows where I am, and it's easier for her to know I'm prancing. And... And... And, I got a big bone with tennis ball stuff on the outside and squeakiness on the inside! It's so cool! And the best part is that since Mommy can't see, I can leave it where she'll step on it, then it squeaks when she walks on it. Then, I can run over and make her play with me. Isn't that cool?

Well, I'd better go. It's about time to start bugging Mommy for dinner.

Love, hugs, kisses, paws, squishes, cuddles and tail wags,


PS: GJ, if you're reading this, give Baxter a pet or play rope with him for me.

PPS: GJ is mommy's Dad.
PPPS: I'm hungry!

Yay! It's fun when Julio gets hold of the keyboard. Now, don't you tease your Mom too much. ;)

She's just so much fun to tease though!

Julio, you are a mess!
How can any one dog eat four bananas? My goodness, what a mess you are. And no wonder Mommy worries about your relief habits, you silly boy! After eating all that extra stuff, no wonder poor Mommy was worried, and on a cold night too!
Now let me tell you a little secret, but you shouldn't tell Mommy because that'll give her more amunition to use against you when you start to complain that she's worrying so much. So this is between you and me, okay Julio?
Mommies always worry, guide dog Mommies and human mommies. I have two girls-do you like children Julio?-and I worry about their relief habits too, especially when they eat things they should not be eating, ahem, like extra bananas. You don't understand it because you're not a mommy, but it's true. and the only reason we worry is because we happen to love you, even if you do drive us bonkers sometimes.
Now be nice to Mommy and tell her I understand even if you don't.

I was really nice to her today. She's been in a bad flare, so every time she goes to lay down, I jump on the bed and cuddle with her. I know it makes her rest longer, since she's stubborn and doesn't rest much.

And to answer your question, I love children. We do internship at a children's hospital and I love it. I even give kids kisses when they're sad. Mom says I make them feel better.

A note from Tux of Courageous Heart & Tux
Yum, I like apples! They make good play toys with an average life of three to four days which is just about a record around here (I should be a toy tester...the humans covered a whole wall of their house with killed toys. Average destruction time: 6 minutes). I really don't care for bananas, and the humans have learned that after offering me some, watching me hold it in my mouth for a few seconds (remember to slopper liberally!) and then spitting it out, that even though they have made several attempts that bananas might be yummy to them, they're not yummy to me!

And I must say...my fan club is ever growing, so I'm glad to hear you're working on a fan club too, Julio! Courageous Heart can always tell when (and usually which) fan club member I have in my sights by how hard I pull on the leash and in which direction. It's really fun when she gives me a "Find Mom" command or a "Find Dad" command when we first enter a favorite store, and I make her think we're going to find Mom but I take her with me to see all my fan club members first...appearing confused and baffled when she figures it out and looking at her like, "What do you mean by Find Mom?"

Hi Tux,

Mom doesn't give me apples to play with, but sometimes she gives me slices of apples as treats. She doesn't do that much though. She gives me more carrots than apples. She puts them in Kongs with peanut butter.

I like it when she tells me to find grandma or GJ. I get so proud of myself when I do it, too.

Oh, Julia, I don't like getting my ears cleaned either. Mommy won't do it without help anymore because it takes at least two or three people to get me to let them do it. The only reason I put up with it is that she lets whichever sightling (Her name for sighted humans) who does it rub my tummy. I love tummy rubs but she never lets other people give me them. Something about it being a sign of submission or something.

Aren't blind humans the best for dropping food? I love it when Mom doesn't see things on the floor or close to the edge of tables. Actually, they don't even need to be close to edges. I know lots of tricks for getting stuff where I shouldn't. Mom doesn't like it. I can't tell you how I do it, because Mom doesn't know how I get some stuff, and I know she'll see this comment.

I hope your ears stay clean and that your Mommy doesn't have to do that awful stuff to you so much. I know it's only 'cause she loves you that she does it. Still, it's no fun.
