Be Werry Werry Qwiet. I'm Huntin Wabbits!

So last weekend was Easter weekend. I heard Easter's the day when a big bunny sneaks in your house and hides little eggs with goodies inside all around. I was very intrigued by this for a few reasons:

1) Where's da bunny? We got unfinished biznez to take care of!
2) I ain't lettin nuttin sneak in MY house! Even a bunny with treats! (well, hold that thought)
3) Eggs? Mmmmmm I like eggs and especially kinds with goodies inside.

However, I was a little disturbed that this sneaky bunny was hiding my goodies so I had to find them. Even that stupid bunny is gonna make me work for da yummy goodies? This conspiracy has got to STOP!

However, as with everything I do, I went along with it. Besides, if it's for yummy treats and eggs....I'll do anything for a goody.
But no one told me the sneaky bunny was the lady bean!!! I was totally robbed! No wonder I was a little leary about this whole thing. It was just another silly set up, from the human beans, to make me entertain them. I don't think I look like the entertainment committee. Besides....I'm da Queen....'member?

Nonetheless, Grady and I entertained her and went out to find the stupid plastic easter eggs. Again....robbed....not even REAL eggs! BUT there was real liver inside them, so I was fine with that. Yes, REAL liver....if she tried to fake me on bunnies, eggs AND liver....she'd be wearin shoes with holes in them next time she goes to work. Trust me.

So here's Grady finding the easter eggs. He's so stupid, I don't know about you, but I can totally see them in this video.

I think even in this pic, Grady's like....ummmm, yeh. it's right dere stupid bean!

So then, the lady bean had me go out there to find them too. Luckily, I quickly found a WHOLE BUNCHA them right there on the table. Momma Bean is not very good at this hiding bunny stuff.

But, she wasn't happy with that, so I had to go "Find" more for her. She's so lazy. These things are right in her face and she makes ME find them for her? Beans are stupid too! I still tried pointing out to her that there was a whole bunch right there on the table, but beans are never satisified...

And yeh, I played into it a lil bit. Here mom....ohhhhh lookie! another one right there on the ground, right for you to see. see it? right next to that big bucket that Grady pees on. Bet it was nice hiding that egg under there. you're sucha clever lil hooman bean, mom. so glad I could help you find this obviously placed plastic egg. that was a tough find. whew!

Ok, mom. Really? Is this game over now?

Apparently, finding strategically placed plastic eggs full of beef liver, wears out the Sissy LaLa. He snored like this for 2 days straight....

But as you see.....I am still the Queen! When you got got it.

We did have to entertain the lady bean one more time with a picture out in the yard. We had just finished sniffin some poop that stupid bunny left behind and she happened to call us to get a treat. Only time she gets my attention is when she mentions the word "treat." Altho, it was kinda hard to resist the smell of fresh bunny poop, just for another chance to entertain her one more time this weekend.

A Week Late....Sad News

Well, this post is late. I shoulda updated last week, after Grady's first Beginner Novice leg, but I wasn't ready yet. You see, Grady's trial last weekend was cut short. He was supposed to compete Friday, Saturday and Sunday. He earned his first leg on Friday, but Saturday morning he woke up pretty sick.

Throughout the week, Grady kept waking up having these attacks. He would start hacking and having trouble breathing and eventually coughed up this stuff that made the hooman beans really worried. They said it had a lil bit of blood in it. It was only a couple of times and the hoomans thought maybe it was because they were sleeping with the windows open, since it seemed to only happen in the morning. So, they were going to keep an eye on it, but knew it wasn't normal for Grady's usual allergy attacks.

But Saturday, the 2nd of the trial, he woke up and was having more trouble. He started breathing really funny, tried coughing up, some pink stuff came out and he was really, really tired. So, the lady hooman bean said she wasn't sure if they would go to the trial. I had a really big party planned, so I was hoping Grady would stop so they would go.

They sat with him for a while and he finally calmed down. He seemed like he wanted to go bye-byes, so the lady said they'd go and take it one step at a time. So, they got ready, got in the car and away they went.

About an hour and a half later, they came back, dropped off the stuff from the trial, called the doctor and left me again. But before they left, the sat outside for a little while, sitting and petting Grady, acting very worried. I'm not sure what happened at the trial when they got there, but it didn't seem like good news.

So they get back in the car and head down to the doctor. When they came back, they were very sad. Grady came in, feeling really tired, but happy to be home. I was kinda happy he was home too. All this worry had me worried about what was going on.

But they had pictures. Grady told me, it wasn't good news. Seems Grady's cancer is now spread to his lungs. There are 3 bumps on his lungs that are what is causing all his coughing up stuff and breathings funnies.

So, the hoomans are sad. They are very worried about Grady. I spent alot of time this week, trying to get Grady to play....but he wasn't all that interested. They put him on meds, which seemed to help. He didn't have any attacks all week, but he got really skinny all of a sudden.

I think he just wants to be a food hog. <rolleyes> That dog will do anything for attention.

He's Just a Beginner (Novice)

So, after almost TWO whole weeks of the beans making me stay in the crate, I'm finally out and raising hell once again! I think next time I want some attenion, I'll rethink that whole "I hurt my leg" thing again. Seems they just throw me in that wire house and tell me to be calm.

Hellooooo? Are they new?

Anyway, since my freedom, I've been trying to lay low. Grady was entered in a trial and the lady bean was takin him all sorts of places to "practice." I seriously don't know why he has to practice so much. But he obviously needs it, otherwise the Momma wouldn't keep taking him out again....and again....and again....for "practice." It's like remedial doggeh training. He has to keep repeating the classes til he gets it right, I guess.

Anyway, he had his trial this weekend. They competed on Friday and well.....I guess all that practice paid off, cuz Grady got 1st Place!

The lady hooman bean said she messed up alot and says each time she watches the video, she sees things she did wrong. I guess maybe *SHE* needs the extra practice next time, cuz I think Grady had it right and she's the one who says she screwed up.

But, the lady bean was happy that they still got 1st place. Fortunately, she said, a couple of the other dogs didn't even qualify...

ok, side note here....these dogs just walk around a ring and can't even qualify doing that?! Can I sign up for this gig cuz I know I can totally do this better than they can! Heck, next time, let me take Grady in the ring since the lady bean seems to keep screwing up.

Anyway, you can see the scores below. They were # 73 and got a score of 191.5. Still.....I coulda totally done better.

They were totally shocked when they got 1st place. The lady bean said she figured they'd get 4th....which I guess is still good considering there were 6 dogs, 1 absent and 2 didn't qualify. (she's not very good at math!)

And Grady was so nice. He got to bring home a toy for his win, but the lady bean let him walk through the shops at the trial and he could pick out something to bring back to me. He brought home bully sticks!!!! YAY!!!!

Nom Nom Nom Nom!

Nom Nom Nom Nom!

OK, he's ok in my book if he brings me bully sticks when mom messes up at the trials. I can live with that.

This was after the first day at the trial. He was a bit pooped. But it was his last trial, so I let him sleep on my side of the couch and snuggle my blankey.

Thanks for the bully sticks Grady!!!!
