ANNNNDDD, I wish that my human would feed me human food, not just dog food!
Woohoo for wishes!

I am now going to tag Chef, unless he has already been tagged. And good luck with your human, hopefully she has better luck than my noodle head of a human!

I'm All Moved In!!

What you are witnessing is me, Mr. T-Bone Beasley consuming the insides of my owl bed! My God Human made me the bed, and it was time to get it washed, which meant that I got to lay and play with the stuffing!!! Woohoo!
Moving was pretty ruff on me. Every time my human went down the stairs with a box in her hands, I had to stop what I was doing and follow her. Now, I don't go down stairs okay...so I was afraid that she was just going to move and forget me, so I had to cry and yelp so that she would remember me before she left. Good thing my new place has no stairs! Oh and I have a dog door now! My human just installed it for me, and I work that thing good! The only problem is that it's a little big for me right now - but that's just one more thing for me to grow into!

Anyway, our last night at the old house was not a good one, my human and I were going to have to sleep on a naked mattress being that my beds were taken away and my crate was pulled apart. I'm not quite sure where my human thought she was going to sleep...I claimed the bed in the name of Mr. T-Bone Beasley! I think I saved her enough room though...

In the middle of the night I woke up crying and demanded to be let off the mattress and out of the room. Of course, my human woke up with one eye open and obliged to my demands. I swished my butt out to the living room in search of my beloved rawhide, however it was nowhere to be found. And that's when I realized what happened...she packed it. She took my last thing that I loved and packed it all away! What the heck was she thinking! So I taught her a lesson. I sat by the stairs and stared until she realized what she had done! After she understood what I wanted she went through a few of my boxes and found my wonderful and glorious rawhide. I made sure that the rawhide didn't leave my side all night. In fact, for the rest of the night I just chewed it. I was too nervous about the move to sleep anyway.

When we got in the new house I was introduced to another dog named Jose (my human calls him Jose Cuervo), he's smaller than me, but we became napping partners while Chaos errupted throughout my new home.
We took turns sleeping on eachothers beds, and he slept in my crate when I wasn't looking. However, we didn't share the beds, we weren't that close yet. The humans left the house to get another Jose, and forced us into the same crate, good thing it's big. What I don't understand is how they made Margaritas with another Jose, I never even saw another dog come through the door. Oh well I guess...

It's taken me a little bit of time, but I've finally come around to this new place. We have a few weeds growing around, apparently someone is going to come and pick them out of the yard, but I think I've done a good job of picking them out myself.
My new yard is pretty big! Big enough for the T man anyway. I heard my human and my God human talking about good spots to plant some grass. Once that is all grown out my sunbathing shall commence. Let me show you the fun I had in the yard on the first day I came to this place...I love tupperware!
video

Also, I met the cats! Scooter growls at me, so I just stay away from her. But I enjoy Satan! She hisses at me, which is the coolest sound ever! So I bark at her and get ready to play, but then she runs away. I will have to break her in I guess. My human says that she is not one of my toys, but I thought that everything that touches the floor belongs to me, therefore is a toy!
Meet Satan! She likes to find clever spaces to sleep too! She totally found a way into the cabinets and wanted to sleep there, until her human airlifted her and made her leave. After that she found another place to hide and sleep!
















So she decided to sleep on the spare towels. A great hider she is! My God human bought a doggy gate to keep us out of the room for kitties, so I like to sit or lay by the gate and keep an eye out for them!
When I left my old home, my human brought along a transitionary toy. At my old place a random glove showed up in the front yard one morning. Every morning that glove was there for me to play with and bring along for my walks! So when I wasn't looking she snatched my glove and put it in the house so that I could play with it in the yard, maybe one day I will bring it along for a walk. In the meantime, I prefer to play with it, and nap with it!

Well, this is Mr. T-Bone Beasley signing out, reminding everyone that sometimes the best things in life are free (like my toy glove).
Slurp!

Oh To Sleep

Here I lie in my food dish. I so badly wanted more food that I felt it was best to take my food dish to a good resting area to dream up a good bowl of chow. It was sad though, 'cause when I woke up there was nothing! NOTHING! Well, okay so there was a little drool in the corner where my nose was, but that little puddle was not surrounded by my little round O's of chow goodness.
Now that I am feeling much better I am soaking in everything, every chance I get 'cause I want to grow and be a big dog with a big beard! I mean c'mon there are chicks out there with beards much bigger than mine. I'm pretty sure that each and every time I wake up from a good nap I grow at least a little bit more.

So what better to nap on than a new bed! Woohoo! Welcome to my new bed! Apparently, this is suppose to match the new brown leather couches we will be getting for the living room, but whatever, I got a new bed out of it! I haven't yet taken a Nylabone or Rawhide on it yet, it's still too new, I want to break this one in slowly!





So, here is yet another nice place to nap. This is my piece of tile just around the corner from the kitchen. This is where I rest IF my human chooses to cook something.

The nice thing about this particular spot is that it is cool. The Arizona heat is starting to roll in and the tile is one of the best spots to be. Beside that, I get to keep a look out for my human's food and my little O's of goodness.







Spot number three! On my bathing towels!!! My human dampens the towels for me because I like to lay on them...it cools down my hot HOT furrrrocious fur. Sometimes you have to taste the towel though, just to make sure that no other four legged human was sniffing around on it. And if you sleep with the towel in your mouth, then no one will take it away when you're zonked out.

My hoof! I love my hoof! I love it so much, that I sleep with it too! This way I can savor the taste in my mouth and wake up with some awesome napping breath. One of the other human's in my office thought I was dead, my human had to inform them that I was intensely meditating so that I could send out some great ESP to Noah's Grandpinky!


Now, I understand that my napping styles aren't as nearly perfected as Mango's. I try to meditate the way that he does, but it seems to come so natural to him. I'm working on it Mango, I will make you proud!

Ahhh well, it's actually about that time to head out. I still have to catch up on some sleep, because we are moving tomorrow! Woohoo! It's gonna be a long weekend!

The Dreaded Tub

Mr. T-Bone Beasley here, just making sure there is no water in my ear! You got it! I had a bath today, and no, it definately was NOT the highlight of my day! Apparently, I smelled...not so good I guess. I thought I smelled just fine, better than my human on most days anyway.

The tub started to fill with water, and I laughed because at the time I thought my human was about to have to take a bath. Then, it happened...I was air lifted, and PLOP!!! I was put in the tub. Cups full of water falling all around me, weird smells and suds were consuming my once furry body! I was not pleased, so...I made sure my human took a bath too!


Heehee! This is the aftermath of a bath with Senor Bease! Woohoo! I rock! She was so wet and smelly, that she had to take a real shower of her own, haha and she thought she could get out of one today! Well, that's what she gets for trying to make me smell un-four legged human like!

After my bath I enjoyed a nice pig hoove on my bed while my human brushed me with a comb and helped de-fuzz some of my very HOT fur! It felt nice, I won't lie. If having to take a bath means that I can be brushed like that all the time, well, then I guess I can deal with it!


I wonder if I could sell this on ebay...






Well, anyway, I like to lay on my wet towels after a long bath, so I must go rest up and get ready for work!

My Third Series

Hello again! It is I, Mr. T-Bone Beasley, and today I went to the vet...again. This morning, the sun was shining, the birds were chirping, there was a slight breeze in the air and the T-Bone was napping. That is until I was air lifted and put in the back of my Jeep.


That's right, in the middle of my nap my human took me out of my bed and put me in the jeep. I guess it was time for my third series of immunizations!

Don't get me wrong, I love going to see the vet...mostly because they love to see me. The people get all googley eyed and giggle when they say my name, they pretty much adore me and I soak it up! My human told them I could sit, shake and lie down...stupid human! They were about to give me treats for just simply being...and thanks to her I had to perform!
I was placed on a very high table, which makes me nervous because it's not stable ground! My back legs were shaking...and yes, I am still balding some more! I got weighed and I am now 22.2 pounds. We all believe that if it wern't for the worms I may be a few pounds heavier! I've definaley grown taller. The woman in the background loves me the most. She snuggled my head and gave me lots of treats. She said that today she needed to see an Airedale. Maybe all us Airedales heal others.

I just realized that my ear looks like it was velcroed on and needs to be re-adjusted.




Anyways, after feeling a little unstable on the table I decided it was time to sit down.
When the vet came in I got another treat! And good news!!! I have both of my testicles! I hear it won't matter for much longer, being that I will be something called neutered. I don't know what that means...maybe neutered means that I will handed treat upon treat on neuter day! Ooooooo


Also, the first of April I start some Heart Guard medication to protect me from those stupid worms. The vet gave my human a little platic tube like thingy to collect my poo in. I guess in two weeks they will be re-testing my poo to make sure that all of those worms were killed good! I love making my human collect my poo! The best part is making her think that I won't go...so we go on an even longer walk!

All in all, it was a good visit. I didn't even know I got stuck in the neck with the vaccine. Oh well. I'm pretty exhausted know. It takes so much energy to entertain those two legged humans. I need to rest up because I'm sending some very intense ESP over to Deetz's brother, Gizmo! Hold on Gizmo!!! High energy is coming your way!!!!

Say My Name...

Well hey there! We meet again! Happy Easter to all of you that celebrate it! I'm not quite sure what Easter is all about, but I hear there is a bunny to keep a look out for. Believe me, if there is a bunny around here, I will be the first to find it! Once I find it I'm not quite sure what I'll do with it, but more than likely I'll lick it, especially if there is food in a basket!






So, I don't know about all of you, but I have ONE name, and that name is Mr. T-Bone Beasley. Recently it seems that my human comes up with a new name for me each day. Now, I understand why I would be called a select few like, "Beasley", "Bease", "Mr. T", "T", or "T-Bone" because those are all a part of my name right...so those names I deem okay. However, some of them just boggle my mind!

Lately, the choice name for me is "Bean Head", I hear that my Uncle Frisco gets called this as well. I just don't get it! My head doesn't look very beanish does it?
I consulted the Moose and he believes that my ears may be a bit big for my head, and maybe my nose too...but he didn't feel that my head resembles a bean. So there, that one is settled, I should not be called "Bean Head".

OR, WAIT! Does "Bean Head" refer to having a bean for a brain? Because I'm really smart for being only 11 weeks old! Let me show you!
video



That's right! I totally know how to sit, shake and lie down! I just learned to shake the other day! After try three I got my silly human to treat me up for doing such a simple minded thing! Woo hoo for me!

Now, a couple other names I get called are "Little Bear" or "Big Bear". Dang It! It's either one or the other! I guess I get called this because I have bear cub like feet. If I have to be called either, well I prefer "Big Bear" because I am big ... I am furrrrocious!!!

I just don't get it...I mean, If I could call my human any name I wanted, well she would have a lot, and sometimes they wouldn't be that nice. See how she likes to be called "Bean Head", huh? She's just lucky that she doesn't understand what I bark at her! She's also lucky that I'm not that kinda of guy, to just go and intentionally hurt someone else!


Anyway! Woohoo for bunnies!

This is Mr. T-Bone Beasley showing you what I would look like if I were an Easter Egg! Farewell!

The T of All T-Bones

Yes! I am feeling much better today! I napped for a bit, but as you see, I was not sick enough to stay out of the grassy bushes!




After some belly rubs, 2 days of worm killer food, and sleeping by the toilet I am feeling much better.

Last night I slept in my crate for about 5 hours, then I started to whine. My human practically fell out of her bed, and with one eye open she let me out of the crate and opened the bedroom door so we could begin our journey down the stairs and out to the front yard. But, I got her!! I didn't need to go outside, I just wanted to snuggle her butt again. I've become quite the trickster!


Also, as promised...here's my good friend Apollo!














He tolerates me well! I like to crawl over his back instead of going around him, and he completely flipped me over! He got me good that time!















He lets me think that I can take him on...what a nice guy! Look! He even comes down to my level. Little does he know that some day I will be much bigger than him!














He kept breathing on me...and I could still smell the scent of my blueberry and apple treats on his breath! I can't believe my human just handed out MY treats! MY treats!















See! I can totally be as tall as Apollo! I'm like a Stretch Armstrong toy! TAG! You're it!
And, I am officially exhausted. That was a good rumble, Apollo definately out ran me! Oh to have longer legs!


Well, thanks so much to all of my four legged humans that cursed those round worms and sent me nice messages! I must continue my slumber in hopes of growing much bigger by tomorrow!

This is Mr. T-Bone Beasley signing out and reminding you all to chew as you chew and never look back...NEVER (only because if the humans catch you looking back, and you look guilty...well that could be very bad. So just chew and chew hard, then later act like you never ever saw that chewed up thing before).

They Found Me...

They found me, I don't know how they did it, but they found me. Yes, the round worm got to me, and have invaded my poor puppy belly.

Wednesday night I was up all night being carried up and down the stairs to go poo. It was horrible. This is a picture of me recovering on my human's bed at about 6 am Thursday morning. I was hoping to get a blog out earlier in the day, but between my process of healing and helping my human pack, it was a really ruff day.



For the past 2 or 3 weeks I have been having belly pains on and off and would be sick all night. The vets put me on some meds, and they worked for a little bit, but as soon as I was done taking them, well, the belly aches came back. You should see the dark circles under my human's eyes...hehe, she looks like one of my beat up stuffed animals! Anyway, so at 7 am she called the vet while I was theraperized by her oh-so comfy bed, and the vet said that they would put me on Amoxicillin and that they wanted me to change my food. My human was okay with the meds, however, she did not want to change my food, and I didn't either! I love to inhale the little dark brown O's that I have now! So guess what else we had to do...that's right! Poo sample!!! So I ate my breakfast, then around 9 am we were off in search of a worthy piece of earth to lay out my sample!

For a while it wasn't looking like the vet was going to be getting a sample-well, that's what they get for trying to switch my food without consulting me first! It's hard being the middle guy! However, I finally found THE spot...and it happened. At one point I swear I saw my human's lips part and intensely whisper, "YES! DO IT!!!!" So, I did! This is where the story gets good. It's like a non-violent action James Bond movie.

After I gave my tail a final tap my human ran to the rocks, purple bag in hand and picked up my poo faster than I've ever seen her grab! She pulled my leash and sprinted to the front door. With me lagging behind she threw off her brand new sunglasses (out of my reach though of course, I don't know why she doesn't trust me with her glasses), and bolted up the stairs, grabbed her purse and a treat! Yea, as soon as I saw the treat I knew I was going to get rewarded for my very proud poo! Either that, or I was getting put into my crate. Well, it turns out that the treat was for going in the crate.

From this point on my human had to inform me of what happened, since I was just left behind. So, apparently she sped down the freeway in order to deliver my magical bag to the vets. Once she got there she said, "I have Mr. T-Bone Beasley's poo here, and I hope you don't mind the few rocks that were brought along with his sample." Apparently, the woman at the desk wasn't nearly as excited about my poo as my human and myself were. So, another woman walked in and stopped when she saw the purple baggy on the desk, my human smiled and told her it was mine. Her response? "Oh, well that's great." My human informed her that it was great because we didn't think I could put out any more poo after last night! While processing my papers and getting my poo ready for examination, the receptionist asked if my human would like for the vet to call her with the results. Uhhhh, she just rushed some fresh, smelly poo to you...of course she wants to know what's going on with it!

So, my human picked up my pills (I love pills), grabbed some packing boxes and hurried back home to medicate me and rub my poor, soft and of course adorably fat belly. When WAIT!!! RING RING RING!!! Yes! As soon as my human got to the house (25 minutes from the vet), she received the results of my lab/poo. Good news! I don't have to change my food! Bad news...I got the worm. Good news! I get to eat more food with some powder crap in it...but who cares!!! I get more food now!!!! Woohoo for food! So, my human didn't come in and tell me the news, instead, she had to go back to the vet to pick up the powder for my deworming.

This is me (of course) with the new powder food on the top of my nose, I really wanted some more. Dang, I love to eat. I burp pretty good too! It's starting to get a little louder! Maybe one day I will shake the earth with a thunderous boom and you will all know it was me!!!








So, anyway, that was my day...I've been attacked by the worms. But fear not my furry, four legged friends! Mr. T-Bone Beasley will not be defeated by something as small as a worm!

Okay, take some time to put up your feet and relax a little bit!

It's Been A Month!

We meet again, but this time from the floor! My nose was getting a little heavy so I will be dictating my words from here.

Today is a special day, well I mean, every day is special! But I feel that today should be named in honor of Mr. T-Bone Beasley! Let me start out by saying that it has been two whole days since I last peed on the floor! Woohoo for me! Now to the really good news! I am officially 11 weeks old today, and it has been a whole month that I have been living with my human. It's taken the whole time, but we are better bonded now. For example, last night I totally snuggled her butt. I wouldn't have done that 2 weeks ago! I now love her enough to keep her butt warm at night. It took a lot of heating energy and I didn't even get the best sleep, but I love her enough to make those kinds of sacrifices...however, let's make it perfectly clear that she owes me.

Also, I got some interesting news last night. Let me show you my surprised and shocked face! I was definitely caught off guard when I heard this...

What is it you ask! Well, I'm moving! Yea I know! It took me an entire month to break this place in, and now I'm moving! My human assured me that it's not going to be a huge move, we are just moving to something called Mesa. I guess Gilbert is where I have been living. It smells like cow butt out here, so my human also told me that it will be safer to waft the air out in Mesa.


Apparently this house has a huge back yard with a nice shady tree. My human and her friend are going to grow me some grass to sun bathe in. I dunno though, I'm a little concerned because this human that is going to be living with us is my God Human, and uhhhh well, she has cats. Yes, you heard me right...cats, the furry ones that make you sneeze. I haven't met them yet, and to be honest I'm a little worried. One cat's name is Scooter, and I hear that she likes to keep to herself, which could be problematic being that well, I like to play! ALOT! The other one is named Satan (she was adopted by another, very odd human, but my God Human kept the name). I'm kind of excited for Satan! She is white and fluffy, so I've been told...and I hear that she is quite boisterous which is exciting because I come with my own sound track! Many words will be exchanged between us, I'm sure.


In any event, I wasn't prepared for the news because I was just getting comfortable in our Gilbert home. However, a back yard and a doggy door of my own makes it an even exchange. More room in my kingdom will be nice as well! I will surely miss some of my many great four legged humans that I have met here, especially Apollo. I will have to get a picture with him and show you all. When I was a wee bit smaller I could walk right under him! He tolerated me well, but then he ate some of my treats...which reminds me, I need to talk to him about a reimbursement of some sort!


Okay well in honor of Mr. T-Bone Beasley Day, I thought I would show you all how much I have grown since I came to my new home! These were taken a month ago, and I hadn't started balding yet!
































Alrighty all, this is Mr. T-Bone Beasley signing out, and reminding everyone to stop and smell the flowers (or eat them).

Hard Day At Work

Greetings! Well, it's about time I told you all that I am a working puppy. Yes, I have a job...and it's rough. In fact, I slept in this morning, ate, and I'm napping again. What do I do you ask? Well, first I entertain all of the humans that work in my office. Second, I play with all of the children who need a little puppy love. This is me in the back seat, enjoying the ride to work! My goal in life is to become a Gabriel's Angel, but I have to be a year old to be a part of the group.





In Arizona there is a group of 4 legged humans called the Gabriel's Angels, and we provide therapy to abused, neglected and at risk children. Right now, my human brings me to work so that I get used to a bunch of little hands grabbing at me, and well...exhausting me. I'm pretty good at it! I let them pull my ears and my tail while I eat and let them snuggle with me while I'm sleeping. I won't lie, I like the little human's.









This is me walking the little humans! I was taking them to my favorite potty spot! Then, on the hunt for some good rocks to chew on!






Meet Frank! Meet Henry!

Now it's time to help out with a little bit of office work!






Open! Now! There are some crinkly papers in there that I must get to!





C'mon! Did I not say Please?








Okay, FINE! I give up...

After I gave up on the drawer, I napped...or so my human thought! She went to go visit with some of the kids, and when she got back her sunglasses were missing. Now, listen...I know what you're thinking, but I did NOT take them! Some how they fell, right? Okay and when they fell I tried to break the fall by grabbing them...and I noticed a smudge so I just, you know, licked it off. And that's all! Anyway, someone else must have chomped a big hole in the glasses!




Oh well, needless to say, it was an exhausting day, but so much fun!





Hope all is well in everyone else's world!












Nap On my Friends! Nap On!!!
