the puparazzi!!!

merry christmas friends! its been a while since i've blogged because the internet in NJ is painstakingly slow. but i've finally gathered up enough patience to make a post.

how was everyone's christmas? mine was just swell!!! santie paws was good to me! i got some rawhides and chicken liver treats in my stocking and many new toys. a frisbee, a TALKING treat ball, a new hot dog man to replace the one i destroyed and much more!

does anyone else find christmas overwhelming?? on christmas morning i couldn't stop crying! it was 1/2 tears of joy and 1/2 tears of turmoil because of all the commotion. i tried to bury myself in a gift bag to calm myself down - it turned out to be too small.

mom got a brand new professional-grade camera. needless to say, she has been photographing me ALL DAY EVERY DAY!!!! it is like a puparazzi!!! here are some of the photos she's taken. hope ya'll had a great christmas. ; )

a profile shot.
looking a little sleepy. lol.
this is a little creepy.

playing with the gift auntie elly got me : )

some lost footage..

i'm sure you remember me mentioning that mom's camera is finally up and running (which does not mean to terminate her "wish" of a D5000 on her christmas case any of you were wondering...)

anyway she came across this charming photo (i'm being facetious). i asked her not to SHOW IT TO THE WORLD, but she said she must. i'm embarrassed.

this was taken on 5/13 and we all know what day that is! i'm sure now you understand what was going on! lol.

p.s. please expect a blogging hiatus as i will be away from my computer this week. enjoy your thanksgiving. i sure will : ) WOOF!

a sassy ____poo

you fill in the blank. no one knows for sure what breed i am, but everyone agrees i'm half poodle. so fill in the blank for me!!! mom thinks i'm a lhasa apso-poo and grandmom thinks i'm a bichon-poo. what do ya'll think!?!

anyway i got my hair cut. i'm sure you can see the enthusiasm radiating off me.

obviously, i couldn't have been bothered because i was much more interested in playing with fox's tail!

no matter what i happen to be mixed with, my haircut makes me one sassy poodle. (or so mom says).

P.S. to those who have been wondering, mom has found her camera charger and is now taking pictures of me incessantly! ugh. grr..

RIP Fox...

now before you jump to conclusions, yes, that is fox's tail hanging out of my mouth. but that doesn't mean i ATE HIM!!!

on the contrary, i just...dismantled him.

yes, i ripped fox's tail off. i am guilty. but right before this was about to happen:

mom heard a yelp. yes, that was from me. mommy please don't throw away the tail, that's my favorite part!!!!! she let me keep it : )

grandpop gave me fox for my birthday which was almost 4 months ago. mom is happy because this is the longest time it's ever taken me to destroy a toy. it's usually more like a week or two. she gets mad because she has to buy me more!! i'm glad i accomplished my mission. now onto my next:

books part 2

mom would like you to know all the great deals she got at the semi-annual friends of the library sale!!! (remember a similar post last time??) unfortunately, she could not find any books written in italian for seems the folks in central florida don't speak much ITALIANO!!

Nicholas Sparks - The Lucky One
Janet Fitch - White Oleander
Kristin Hannah - Firefly Lane
P. D. James - The Murder Room
P. D. James - The Lighthouse
Alexander McCall Smith - Tears of the Giraffe
Alexander McCall Smith - Morality for Beautiful Girls

she wants to know if any of you "bookies" have any suggestions about what she should read first! oh yes, and she only spent $15!!! that means she has more money to buy me toys!!!!! : )

ok ok, i'll admit. the world from down here has shifted to the back burner as my mom is SUCH A COMPUTER HOG!!! she claims she needs the computer for school, but i've seen her playing the sims when she thinks i'm not looking!!! well i'm going to put my paw down...

what have i been doing? well last weekend grandmom & grandpop fitz came down to visit. mom kept it a secret so when they knocked on the door i had to try SO HARD not to pee pee in excitement!! (i did so successfully!!) they brought me a HASHBROWN, it was just like old times in NJ when i used to have hashbrown sunday!! mom decided to discontinue that tradition because she claims:
"bandit, if that is not good for my arteries, than it is most definitely not good for your little arteries."
just to prove a point, i decided to make myself a pizza for lunch yesterday. mom, it doesn't always have to be good for you!!

i'm sure you all know of my mom's OBSESSIVE's verging on diagnosable OCD. anyhow, she purchased a label maker, labeled everything she could think of and then some....

what's my fave toy these days? it's actually a webkinz (meaning it's meant for CHILDREN) mom and aunt elly call him my le tigre. i just loveeeee him!!!!

i'll be updating soon! don't youse worry!! but for now, i think ill just take a nap ; )

(mom says i sleep on my back a lot!!)

...thats right. a snuggie. FOR DOGS!!! my mom tries to bundle me up for walks when it gets cold. i dont really need to be bundled up because im so fuzzy, i'm afraid she may get me not just one snuggie but TWO!!! its a bogo deal!!! blue is not really my color though...

its that time of year again.

hmmm... i seem to remember about this time last year mom was thinking about my CHRISTMAS PORTRAIT!! for those of you unlucky enough to have received my christmas card, i was placed amongst snow and presents and had my picture taken for HOURS. HOURS HOURS HOURS! i'm certainly not kidding. it would have been even worse if mom had succeeded in making me wear the doggie santa hat she bought.

anyway, i've heard her mention this year's christmas card and it just makes me CRINGE!!! here are some of the bad pictures from last year. if ya'll remember me sitting cutely in the snow, here is proof that that is NOT how the whole scene played out...

"lay down, bandy."
"bandy, don't eat the snow."
"want this treat bandy? look up here"
"bandy, you can have it AFTER we take the picture"
"bandy sit still!!"

so which picture was the eventual "winner"? here it is:

i look so happy and mellow, right? well now you know that's WRONG ; )

if any of you have some suggestions on what theme we can do this year and how to make it not so TERRIBLE, let me know. ill pass it on to my mom.

366 days : )

yesterday was the anniversary of my homecoming! i was only 2 lbs and 8 weeks old when my mom came and got me. her, aunt elly & aunt vi drove all the way to south carolina to get me!!! before driving back the 8ish hours, we went to sonic for lunch (had to be an OUTDOOR place bc of me). I was very timid at first but mom brought me a tan fuzzy blanket and a few toys for the trip. She and i laid in the back seat the whole ride home and i started to feel better.

We got home at 11-12ish and mom (being an unprepared first-time mom) decided that she and aunt elly should get me a baby gate so that i wouldn't poop and pee all over the carpet. because it was so late, they headed to the 24-hour walmart and left me & my leash tied to the oven door in the kitchen in the hopes that it would make me stay on the tile! weren't they surprised to find me hiding under the dining room table when they got back!!

thats how it all began. here are some flash-backs:

mom says the best thing she ever ever did is get me : )

well, its been a while

i'm back by [very] popular demand! i took a hiatus because i got sick again & bc i've just been a busy boy!

weather around these parts was rainy for a while. i didn't get to take my after lunch & after dinner walks. that put me in a bad mood - try blogging when you're in a bad mood. then i got sick. for 5ish days. good thing i got better before mom took me to the vet. last time i was there, it wasn't pretty.

football season has started and i've been busy watching the gators kick some butt. today is a BIG game against TENN. mom could have sold her ticket for $125, but she wanted to go instead. TENN's coach is a jerk and said they're going to beat us and that urban meyer is a cheater; all of us gators are mad. the kick off is at 3:30 & ill be watching it from the comfort of my house. mom wanted to take me, but i said NO THANKS MOM. im fuzzy and black and its HOT OUT THERE!!! ill just crack open a cold one and lounge on the couch.

elly got me a new toy. actually she got me 2 toys (because i never got a birthday present from her!!!) she got me a zebra that makes 2 different squeaky noises & she got me a raw-hide alternative that is real yummy - bacon flavored. mom bought me a new frisbee because my old one is all chewed up & she got me something else but she said she's saving it for a rainy day. i think ill try to find it when she is at the game this afternoon, muahahahahaha!

here are a few pictures of me:
