This is Lizzie again. I have pwned my minion and she has agreed that since she has her own blog at Shiny Stuff for her artwork and stuff, this one can be mine.

Yesterday I got a new anti-evil collar (I am not sure if I approve or not) and went to obedience class at ABOTC. Man, boot camp has nothing on those evil people. Because I’m so spazzy but do know how to sit and down and stay, Mom was going to put me in intermediate. However, there were a ton of new folks starting this month and the small intermediate class got dissolved into the advanced class (Mom said some of those dogs were working on their you-dee, whatever that is) and beginner was so chaotic, she figured that she would just put me into advanced and I could do my stays on leash.

I have her SO snowed. Unfortunately, my new anti-evil collar suppressed my demonspitz powers and I actually had to demonstrate that I *do* actually know how to heel.

At least there were lots of cookies.

Dear diary,

Today my minion took me on a car ride because she said I had Cabin Fever. First we went to the drive through biscuit place. I like them. They give mom money and me biscuits, all in exchange for paper!  Next we went to Petco, where mom bought me a green rubber fetch toy that bounces weirdly, and some cookies.

Then we came home, and now I am napping on the bed. Later, I plan to make my minion buy me chow mein noodles, which are my new favorite snack. Life is good.

Lizzie’s Australian relatives aren’t from Victoria, but everyone’s heard about the brushfires that have so far destroyed over a thousand homes and killed more than 100 people.
Check out the Virtual Dog Show to raise funds to help Victorian dog folks affected by the fires get back on their feet.

Happy Christmas from Lizzie, to all our friends.

Not quite dead yet!

We’re still here! Really! The blog has taken a back seat to some real life stuff, but plans to make it more active are coming soon.

Lizzie and I are back from a trip to Oregon for the Rose City Classic Dog show. Lizzie was featured in the blog of the Oregonian Newspaper on Sunday for their “Guess the breeds” quiz (and a picture of my artwork was featured on the next day :))

More about the trip later- I’m totally jetlagged. Had planned to update from the show via wifi but it turned out not to work in our building!

ETA: Lizzie (and me) can be see on the OregonLive Pets Blog in their Meet the Breeds quiz- not a good photo of us but hey! It’s still cool! (My artwork also got featured on the next day’s entry here – the budget arty pendant. 🙂 )

Photos, as promised!

Lizzie, four weeks and a few days

Ack! I’ve been lazy

about updating this! Sorry guys!

I got photos of Lizzie from her breeder a few weeks ago but just went out to take my own yesterday, so they’ll be up tomorrow. Lizzie is a feisty little thing and I think she’s going to be an absolute blast to train with.

The puppies are now 5 weeks old and beginning to act like puppies- mouthing, barking, yapping, and starting to really run and play with each other. They squeak, they pounce, they’re learning to eliminate away from their sleeping area, and EVERYTHING goes in the mouth at this stage. I took two toys over for Lizzie (one came home again with me as Kari was concerned it would get dirty ;P) but the other is a soft rubber chicken which squeaks. I field-tested it with Indy the Destroyer Of Squeakies and it was not punctured in two weeks of play, so we’ll see how it holds up to sharp puppy teeth. Lizzie was les interested in that then her white or cream brother was, but she really liked her tug toy, which is excellent. She’s very interested in things that move and which can be pounced on- hopefully she’ll maintain this quality into adulthood, as prey drive can be a wonderful way to motivate a dog.
