Happy Halloween!

My Mom has been answering the door all night and handing out candy to kids dressed up in funny costumes. A few of the kids were dressed like bunny rabbits! Mom says she dressed up like a bunny when she was a kid. Hmm....does everybody want to be a bunny? It's a great life...especially when you have cool parents like I do.

I didn't want to dress up and Mom said that was OK. Here I am in my Halloween costume a few weeks ago.

Since the kids at the door are begging for candy, I decided to beg my Dad for some cilantro. I LOVE cilantro. It tastes much better than candy!

My Mom told me tonight that she is leaving on a long trip tomorrow. She is going to Korea. That means she won't be able to help me with my blog until after she gets back.
Bye for now....

Mom's New Camera

My Mom got a new camera and she decided to test it out by taking photos of me. I like having my photo taken, but I think Mom has gotten a bit crazy with the camera.

Here are some of her "test" shots.

Meet My Friend Flat Michael

Hi everyone. I have a new friend. His name is Flat Michael. He is very nice.

Flat Michael travels with my Mom when she goes away for her job. Flat Michael has his own blog and it is pretty cool. It has lots of stories and photos from the trips he has taken with my Mom. You can read Flat Michael's blog at

I have also learned that I have a new cousin. He is a dog and his name is Cosmo. He lives with Kristin's sister Sarah. I haven't met him yet, but I can see photos of him on his blog. Check out Cosmo's blog at

That's all for now. Bye!

The Boxer

Hi everyone! I hope all is well with you.

I've been quiet on the blog during the last few weeks while I recover from being "fixed." Today my Mom took a day off work to spend with me. :) She got me up early and took me to see Dr. Fick and Dr. Tasha at Muscatine Veterinary Hospital. I was really worried that Mom was going to leave me again, but she told me not to worry. I was only going to get my stitches taken out.

Had I known that, I could have saved her the trip. I chewed all of my stitches out all by myself this week. Dr. Fick and Dr. Tasha wanted to see the scar on my tummy. Dr. Tasha found a stitch I didn't and she took it out. She also says I have something called an infection on my skin. Mom says that's probably because I chewed my stitches out. Now I have to take medicine to make my skin get better. Yuck! But, Mom says she will give me treats if I take my medicine. So I am going to try and take that nasty tasting pill.

This week my Mom got me a new toy. It's a big box. I love it! I can jump on it.

Best of all, I can chew on it!

Mom decided to take a movie of me playing with my box. You can see it by clicking on this link from my MySpace page:

Mom says I need to chew on the box and not her baseboards. She puts me back in my cage when I chew on the baseboards. I guess I better stick to chewing on my box.

Mom says now that I am "fixed" I can spend more time out of my cage and playing in my area. Sometimes I get to stay out for a couple of hours while Mom and Dad watch TV at night. I really like this because I can go into my cage and eat when I am hungry, guard my cage, and run around a play when I want to!

Whew! All of this playing makes me tired. It is time to head to bed.

The Big Fix

Hi everyone. I hope you have had a better day than I have.

Last night my Dad told me that I was going to have a "big day." I wasn't sure what he was talking about and I didn't really care since he gave me lots of cilantro to eat.

But right after 8pm my Mom took my food away. She said I needed to rest for my "big day." I didn't want a "big day." I just wanted my food! I tried pouting for Mom but she didn't give me any food. :(

This morning Mom pulled out my travel cage. She told me I was going to Dr. Fick's office to get "fixed." Fixed? I didn't think anything was broken! I was really confused, but Mom told me that everything would be fine. I wasn't so sure, especially since she kissed me, told me I was going to be OK, and then left me alone at Dr. Fick's office!

Don't get me wrong, I really like Dr. Fick and everyone at Muscatine Veterinary Hospital, but I would rather be with my Mom and Dad. Soon, someone wearing a mask wrapped a towel around me and put this funny mask on my face. I'm not sure what happened next. All I know is that I woke up and a bunch of the fur on my tummy was gone!

Someone at Dr. Fick's office took these photos while I was getting "fixed." Those people sure look scary in those masks. It is a good thing I trust them!

Mom came to get me around noon. I was really tired and my tummy hurt. Mom gave me some medicine to make me feel better. She also gave me a few extra treats. But I am not all that hungry right now.

Mom says getting "fixed" is a big part of growing up. I sure hope so because I don't want to go through this again. I'm not really mad, but I am staying close to my cage tonight.

That's all for now.
