Me and My Girl

by Otto

So about once a month we get to go to the beach with Wizard and his mom.  The beach is a magical place where everyone is friendly and playful and you can run full-out and not get into trouble.  Sometimes my friend Macy Blue comes, too.  I think she is my favorite person to play with.  She is fast and agile and she isn't intimidated by me.  She gives as good as she gets.  

Here we are in perfect sync:

This is my absolute favorite thing:  Having a toy and being chased!  I LIVE for these moments!!

Check out our shadows!!

I saved the bestest for last.  Wizard AND Macy are chasing me.  I have to keep checking over my shoulder to make sure Macy is chasing me!!

I'm one happy guy.  I hope we get to go this month!!

Happy Sunday, Everyone!

Wordleth Wednesday with Me and My Tongue

photo by my Auntie CreekHiker

Hi everyone!  It's me, Otto!  I just wanted to let you all know that we are all FINE at chez rottrover.  

Bart's paw has healed perfectly and he is feeling fantastic.  He even plays with me.  Mom thinks he must have been in a lot of pain from the cancer in his toe, because he's been really chipper since the vet stole it.  The funniest thing is that his furs haven't grown back where he had a fentanyl patch for pain - even though his big super-surgery healed pawfectly.  Go figure.  We call him "Patch."

Ruby has some pretty painful arthritis in one of her hell-bows and her hips. She doesn't move around a lot, but loves eating and snacking.  She sometimes plays tug with me.  I like it when she growls with her mouth full!!

I, on the other paw, have no complaints.  I walk regularly with my girls - either Macy Blue of Creekhiker or my girls Riley and Roxy.  They have a new sister - Aria - who has a major crush on me!!  She is a rottie girl, now 5 months old and she follows me everywhere.  I can't figure out how rough to play with her, cuz she's still pretty small, but she's Priscilla to my Elvis.  

We are totally killing the pawrents in the Christmas card department!  What losers!  They got one from mom's work and one from Chewy who sort of has to send them one because we basically paid for their new warehouse!!  Anyway, thanks so much for thinking of us.  We are around almost every day but it's hard for me to type on the iPawd with my big paws.  

Rottie kisses,

Black and White Bart

Hi Everybody!  Thank you so much for all your thoughts, POTP, AireZen and stuffs.  I'm really feeling the betterments.  I'm eating, as usual, I'm happy, and I'm hardly limping at all.  The dogtor who stole my toe said I didn't need a bandage change 'till next Friday, butt I'm going to go and see Dr. Sarah on Tuesday, cuz I miss her and I miss all the treats Jaime gives me!!

I hope you all have a good Sunday, and again,
thanks for keeping me in your thoughts!

We've Got A Lot to Smile About!

I smile when I get kissed by a cute little girl!!  This is Aria.  She is my furiend Riley's new sister!  Isn't she the cutest little thing??  for some reason mom keeps repeating, "I don't want a puppy, I don't want a puppy, I don't want a puppy..."  


My bro-heim BART is doing SOO well!  Hi has a bit of a limp, but he is smiling and happy and doing great!  He doesn't have to go back to the vet until NEXT Friday.  We are all smiling about that!!


My sister, Ruby is also doing great.  She's got the Arthur-itis in her elbow and her hippers, butt she's getting the acupunctures today and that will make her smile!  

The ASSistant is too lazy to take a smiley picture of all of us today.  Here's an old one...

Oh WAIT!!  That's the wrong one!!  Here:

Everybody's smiling!

He's Home and Snoozin'

Hey dogs and cats and assistants!
Otto here ~

Bart wanted me to let you all know that he is HOME and sleeping off his sleeping stuffs.  Mom wanted to post a picture of Bart, but Ruby and I had to step in. 

You all know Bart's a very handsome guy.  He really didn't want his droopy, bloodshot, lookin' like a junkie eyes posted all over the interwebs...

So, the vet stole his pointer-toe all the way up to the top joint, and ALL the nasty sickies got stolen and thrown away for good!  

Bart and Ruby and I (and also the humans) want to thank you all for sending your good vibes, POTP and aireZen Bart's way.  We know it helped guide the surgeon's paw!

We will keep you posted on Bart's progress!

Sending rottie kisses to you!!

POTP for Bart, Please...

Hello Friends of Blogville.  I have malignant melanoma -  in my TOE of all places.  Tomorrow I'm going to have an operation where the vet is going to steal my toe and hopefully all the bad sickies with it.    

 My humans are kinda freaking out because I'm almost 10 and I have some other issues like my spinal issues and I take lots of pain meds already.  

Also, my Angel Sister Allie had to have a TOE removed, and it took her several weeks to recover.  

She ended up with the evil "C" monster about a year later anyway and she went to the Bridge.  

I hate to worry my humans.  They are so sensitive.  Butt my attitude is, "let's just go for it!!"
Carpe Diem and all that!! If I'm going down, I'm going down fighting!  I had a bath yesterday and I'm still The Most Interesting Dog in the World!!

Dr. Sarah said they can give me different pain meds. She's not going to do the surgery cuz she loves me too much because she wants it done at the main hospital and it's going to be done by the fancy schmancy orthopedic surgeon.  Butt we already have plans to meet up on Friday.  

So anyway, wish me luck and please, please, send me some extra-strength POTP.  

See you all soon!

We know we haven't been around much lately, and we thought you may have forgotten what we look like.  It's been hard to get our publicist (yeah, we don't even capitalize that anymore) to do our blog.
Butt, we're here.  We're trying to get her do
do an update on all of us, butt don't hold your breath.  We're not.  We're just letting our breath come our the other end!!  BOL!!  Payback's stinky, huh Mom??

{This Moment} See Beautiful: Old Dog is Beautiful

Thank you Miss CreekHiker for the beautiful photo of my boy

Despite his creaky joints and painful spinal issues, Bart always has a smile on his beautiful muzzle.  Oh, and he LOVES to swim!

This is a blog hop.  Please join Sugar in celebrating the beauty we see every day!

See Beautiful - July

When it starts to get hot here, the hot air from the desert sucks the cool air from the ocean inland in the mornings just after the sun comes up.  We used to call it fog, but now it's called the "marine layer."  I love how from above it looks like waves breaking on shore.  

Below is what was going on to my left as I was taking the pictures above with my iPhone.  Another kind of beauty - happy dogs!

It looks like Riley is sticking her tongue out at Otto.  She's got him wrapped around her paw!

This is a blog hop.  Show us the beauty!  Thanks, Sugar!

Black and Tan Ladies Who Lunch

Ruby and Macy, the newest
addition to 
Creekhiker, lunching with
their moms

Ruby - L and Macy - R

"Just look adorable and they'll give us food - watch!"

"Macy, I just love that collar!  Where did you get it?"

"Oh, HI Auntie!  What'cha got for us??"


All three of us have had a chance to meet Miss Macy Blue.  She is just the sweetest girl!  She acted like she had known both Bart and me for ages and ages and well, she's sort of in LOVE with Otto.  She bites his tail, and licks the water off of his back when he swims in her pool!! 

We are SO happy that Macy has joined our extended pack.  Oh, and mom kinda has a crush on her.  Just sayin'...

Happy Black and Tan Sunday, Everybloggy!

Check Me Out!

by Otto

So It's been pretty hot here in SoCal.  Last week it was TOO HOT TO WALK!!

After 3 days of no walks, mom got a brilliant idea:

It was the best!!  I never swam in a concrete pond before and I got to swim WITH MY MOM!!

We went back and forth in the water, and when I decided to try to save her from drowning, her friend gave me a tennis ball to put in my mouth so I'd quit trying to save mom with my teeth ;-)

At the end, I was bushed!

And you know what they say about a tired dog...


I can't wait to go again.  Next time Bart and Ruby are going to get to go also.  Mom thinks it would be good for their Arthur-itis.  I think it's good for everything!!

Hope you had a fun weekend!
