Lickey Lou Got A Hold of Me


I am a confessed and confused LICKER. I lick everything - clean bowls, carpets, tile, and sometimes I simply lick the AIR. My favorite thing to lick, though is a blanket. Not just any blanket - HAS to be a fleece blanket.
I lick and lick until my Mommys yell at me and try and calm me down. I lick and lick until my chin is covered in SPIT. I cannot help it - I just gotta lick.
Well last night was THE WORST! I could not stop licking no matter how many times Mommy would snuggle me and talk soothingly to me. I licked and licked like there was no tomorrow. I licked with a crazed look in my eyes and a frenzy in my step!
I licked until I got BANNED from the bedroom and had to spend the night in my crate.
Funny thing is - I stopped licking then.
I have a gnawing feeling . . . and I am sure it is just HUNGER . . . but it gets me to thinking that perhaps . . . yes, I am almost sure I am HUNGRY . . .I, uh, lost my train of thought . . . I guess I am simply hungry.
Mommy, do we have any bones in the house?
I am SURE that would cure my Lickey Lou BLUES.

I Got EARS But I Ain't LISTENIN'

Playing or Avoiding?????

There are times I am really really good. When either Mommy #1 or Mommy #2 calls, I come running. And that is without the added incentive of a treat! Or I am asked to DROP something and I do it - again without the PROMISE of a TREAT.

But then there are times when - well - I just don't listen. Mind you, I HEAR - I just don't LISTEN. So Mommy will  CALL for me to come downstairs (let's ignore the fact I SHOULDN'T be upstairs to being with), and I will NOT come. I get to the top of the stairs and just STAND there looking at her with a big SMILE on my face. I stand there until Mommy comes for me (is SHE GROWLING at me?) and then I run down the hall. Or sometimes I RUN downstairs right past Mommy's feet almost tripping her with my lightning speed.

It usually ends up with Mommy asking me if I HEARD her? Yes, I tell her with my roundest, liquidiest and most innocentest EYES.  Then I tilt my head, ever so beguilingly, BUT I WASN'T LISTENING!!!!

I Think I See the SUN Today



I THINK I see the SUN today
I know it looks FAMILIAR
I WONDER if it's here to STAY
Or simply on a quick TOUR

It LOOKS so bright and SHINY
The AIR is getting WARM
HEY what's THAT I see BEHIND me?
 ARRRRGH! The CLOUDS of another STORM

Pondering the MEANING of Spring

Lesse
According to the TELEbishun, SPRING is a time of renewal, sunshine, flowers, gentle breezes, and so on.
Spring has Sprung, the Grass has Grown, and so on.
Well a look outside shows nothing of the kind.
Wickedly dark clouds and a solid sheet of rain. The ground is soaked and I have to be wiped dry everytime I come in.
And I even got PELTED by HAIL yesterday when I innocently went out to do my BIDNESS. So when is all this GENTLE weather supposed to arrive?
If this is how SPRING is going to treat me, the let's just skip to SUMMER.
By the way homeeeeessssss -
A huge THANK YOU to all who joined in the big Auction, Kissing Booths, and Bake Sale for Richie, Ronnii and Mama Tea.

That's the Way the COOKIE Crumbles



I saw a COOKIE laying on the table
I wanted to have it if I was ABLE
So I stood on TIPTOE and stretched just a little
My neck made a U and my TONGUE did a wiggle
Then I jumped and I JUMPED to get a good start
Then I tried for that COOKIE with all of my heart
It took a while but soon it was MOVING
Down to my MOUTH that morsal was grooving
Then all of a sudden with a RUSH of my strength
That glorious morsel was lodged in my TEETH
It was SO WORTH the STRAIN, the grunts and the slips
CUZ now I can lick the CRUMBS off my lips

Impolite Implorings

Do you beg? Do you look up with tears in your WIDE round eyes while your humans are eating? Do you add a WHINE and maybe a YIP to emphasize your intent?

I DO

I figured this UPPED my CUTENESS factor ten-fold when I begged and whined.

And I have been informed that it is not very polite or nice of me to do so.

It has landed me in the SLAMMER (my crate) on more than one occasion; and yet, I cannot stop the behavior.

I am NOT even being deprived of treats anymore since I was so good on my DIET (like I had a choice) and regained my shapely figure!

So WHY do I do it?

I am in the marketplace for TIPS on how to stop BEGGING. Let me know what you think.

Doggie Bon Bons


Years and years and years and years ago, the groundskeeper at the university came running after Mommy. "Your dog is leaving doggie bon bons all over the grass, you need to leash her and keep her off the grass," he said. "But those are not from my dog," Mommy said. And it was true.

Doggie Bon Bons - and not the good kind

WHAT, you say, is Noodles talking about? I am talking about POOP and a whole lot of it lately.
Mommy and I wandered out our front door recently and what did we see? POOP on our lawn and NOT from me!
AND that wasn't all! AS we got to the sidewalk, we saw a whole lineup of Doggie Bon Bons and none of them from ME! And as we walked down the sidewalk around our neighborhood we saw more and more piles all over the place. It was most unpleasant.
"What is going on?" Mommy said rather curtly. And frankly I have to AGREE! What IS going on?

We used to walk through the neighborhood and never see any poop. And both of my Mommy's always always ALWAYS remember to bring poop bags with them when we walk. And even share them with dog walkers who may have left theirs at home!
But lately there is a lot of strange poop ON THE SIDEWALKS and in our yard!

Why can't other dog PAWrents be more responsible and PICK UP THE POOP? It just makes sense, don't you agree? If everyone did their best to clean up after their peeps and pups, then the area would be more pleasant for ALL to enjoy!

                      I am going to start a neighborhood campaign called  
NO MORE DOGGIE BON BONS
I hope to end this problem soon.

(Mommy wants to thank Julio from her college days for coining the phrase Doggie Bon Bons. Of course, at the time he was accusing her dog of leaving them . . . which she wasn't . . . but nonetheless the phrase stuck. RIP Julio, you were a wit.)

I've an APP for THAT

So there I was, minding my own business when My Mommys start giggling over something on their iPad. Now all I know about iPad is it stores a lot of my pictures and keeps them handy for both Mommys when they help write my BLOG.
Apparently iPad has another use - HUMILIATION!
As in - Let's see how we can HUMILIATE Noodles the most.
As in - Let's use this new ART APP and color in a picture of her and POST it.
Enough said.

I AM NOT FAT Tuesday

I am NOT FAT


Mommy: Morning Noodles. Happy FAT Tuesday!
Noodles: Why are you calling me FAT?
Mommy: I am not calling you FAT! I said Happy FAT Tuesday!
Noodles: But I don't understand why you're calling me FAT. I have dieted for over a MONTH!
Mommy: FAT Tuesday is the feast day before the fasting of LENT begins - it is the lead in to EASTER!
Noodles: But why does that mean you have to call me FAT!
Mommy: Noodles! I never said you were FAT.
Noodles: Then why'd you say 'Happy Tuesday FATTY,' huh?
Mommy: I never said FATTY. I said FAT TUESDAY!
Noodles: Since I am already FAT, does that mean I can eat all I want today?
Mommy: NO! Get ready for the Mardi Gras party - and don't wear that collar - it makes you look FAT!

Noodles and Sunshine the Cat are ready for the party. Open (click) the door to join them.

Bloggers Helping Bloggers

 If there is one thing I have learned from my short time in BLOGVILLE, it is that Pet Bloggers are the most wonderful, caring and generous people/pups/cats that I have ever known.
They share knowledge
They are there when we laugh and there when we cry.
They share our victories and our defeats.
Mostly they are there to CARE.
Recently Frankie Furter, a VERY involved blogger posted a story of some FURIENDS in need.
Check out Frankie Furter's Blog, Frankly Speaking for background on this tale of two tail waggers and their mom. It will make your heart hurt for them.
And it will make you want to HELP them.
I am going to be in a KISSING BOOTH to help raise money for this wonderful cause.
The BIG STUFF is at the auction, though. Such great items have been donated to raise money for Paws of Peace and help Momma Tea, Richie and Ronni. Check it out
Here Auction for Richie, Ronni and Momma Tea


Mommy says even though we struggle to make ends meet we can still help a LITTLE here and a little there - But mostly we can spread the word and hopefully THAT will help more.

Get Along Lil' Doggie

A lot was said about Sunshine the Cat and her obvious craving for ALL THINGS MINE. But really, what did it hurt? She didn't spill anything on my jacket. And she certainly is respectful of my Sock Monkey Bed when she sleeps in it.
The blog boards lit up with cries of "PUNISH THE CAT" but I really didn't see the point (and Mommy refused to cooperate).
THEREFORE, I have decided to call a TRUCE with Sunshine the Cat

After all, we are sisters of sorts. . . and we do occupy the same HOUSE (sometimes even the SAME lap!). So here it is for all to observe -

NOODLES AND SUNSHINE ARE NOW FRIENDS
Let's have a sleepover and share clothes

Revenge Tastes Like Catnip

I needed a way to get Sunshine the Cat to STOP stealing my things.

Her constant thievery of MY THINGS was annoying me, afterall. And it isn't like she doesn't have her own possessions.

But I cannot climb into her window ledge bed! And the closet "nest" kinda freaks me out.


So I found myself really at a disadvantage when it came to claiming something of hers - MINE.

Then it dawned on me . . .

The one thing she prizes most in this world is found in this one little bottle that she keeps "hidden" by her shojii screen box bed . . .
 Her CATNIP!!!!!

Bwah Hahahahahahahahahahahaahah
