The New Bed -Part 1 (and more)

Oh, has it been awhile since I put finger to cellphone screen. Actually, I have no idea when I started this blog post and what I intended for it. Sorry if it’s a little out of sorts.

Phineas is almost recovered from his surgery in the winter and some tendonitis from getting to excited about 4 weeks after his surgery. He’s walking a ton more, which is good for both of us. He’s actually wanting to walk on streets he’s never been before. He’s not totally macho, though. The other day we heard some loud bangs inside our apartment. About an hour later I had to go and the little stinker would not budge from the walk-way near our door. I had to pick him up and carry him across the street to go potty. 

Are the loud boomies over Momma? I’s don’t have to go pee. I’s will hold it.

 We also went to the river in an attempt to get him used to water.  It was was a chilly day, but since he’s part retreiver (not really) he would fetch his ball after in threw it. He wasn’t thrilled to go in too deep, but again it was a cloudy and cool day. We hope to go again when it’s warmer out. My hope is to see if he will swim. 

Our latest aquisition is a new dog bed. Its MollyMutt cover with a bolster pillow and a mesh stuff sack. What you do is stuff the stuff sack with old clothing, pillows, blankets etc.  Pretty much anything soft. Using your old clothing and bedding is nice for your pup since it has your scent on it. I was hoping he wouldn’t destroy which he hasn’t. On he downside, he hasn’t laid on the bed either. He fancies the couch more. Hopefully if we move to a bigger place he will start to use it. We’ll have to wait and see.

Phineas just had his left knee fixed(though the little turd wanted to try to jump up on the couch tonight. I will be fully blocking furniture from now on.) I will try to blog about his surgery later this week. 

Have a good week everybody!


From the Desk of Phineas- These are a Few of My Favorite Things

  • Hi there! Phineas here. WOOF!

So, when I arrived at my new home, there were some cool things for me. A comfy bed, toys,  food and my least favorite,  grooming supplies. Today I’m going to show you my favs.

My mommy loves the I’ve never been there. She goes there and then boxes with my stuff show up at the door. Sometimes the evil, loud brown truck delivers them. We go in the car to buildings with lots of toys, treats, and food as well.


First up is my bed. This is what it looked like before I unstuffed it. In the beginning it had a built in pillow the whole way around! After a while it seemed like a good idea to pull out the soft stuff inside. So yes, I did just that. Now it is flat, but I don’t care.

Next up is something very important. After all, it’s a vessel for my tasty food! WOOF! My mommy picked this bowl so I would savor my delicious kibble.

This next item is the best! It combines two of my favorite activities…1. Eating and 2. Playing. WOOF WOOF! This ball holds my food inside. Then I would try and try with my nose and front feet to roll the ball so the  food comes out. It is a super sturdy ball, too. It still works even though I am not very gentle with it.

My last review is for the best toy and companion ever. Mr. Bill is fun to play with and he’ll even talk back if you squeeze him. I loved him a bit too much. He is unstuffed and his voice is broken. I would love to get him fixed someday. He was my favorite toy! WOOF!

What are your favorite things?
