End of Year Report

Well, I think it's been a good year, minus all the Rainbow Bridge crossings, we could have done with less of those.  But on the whole, a good year.

This last week or so has been busy for me.  Mom's new computer died, so she hasn't had a chance to even LOOK at the pictures she took at Christmas.  Then she got sick, she's getting better but now Dad is sick and we're all hoping Puppy doesn't get sick because that would just NOT be fun for anyone.

So while I have a minute to catch up with everyones blogs that I've missed I will say Hap-Pei New Year!  May it be full of ear scratches, good noms and lots of loving!

Sniff ya later!

Tumultuous Tuesday

I woke up this morning and felt there was something missing.

GASP!  Someone stole my sofa!



I'm very worried Mom.

What will I lounge on?!?!  Where will I curl up while everyone is eating food and not giving me any?!?!?

What?  Not to worry?  There's another one on the way?
Is that why I'm stuck in the stairs?

Well hey!  Would you look at that!


Wow.  Good colour choice Mom.  I can blend in here.
Dad, your foot is encroaching on my cushion space.

Well I'm glad that was nothing to worry about.  It made for some excitement during the day because I -of course- had to bark and defend my house when these two guys brought in my new sofa.  That's my job you know.

And then Mom took me to get my nails trimmed.  Go figure.

Sniff ya later!


Pei-Ess, look for my Christmas Card being sent out soon!  I have given final approval on it!

For those of you who think that I don't like my Puppy, you'd be wrong.  Yeah, sometimes he bothers me - like when he thinks he wants to pull my tail and I have to say I don't think so!  But for the most part he's a pretty good little guy.  He usually lets me sample whatever he happens to have at mealtimes, this is the basis of a good brofur relationship in my opinion.

Mom finally has evidence that we're conspiring against her though.  I told Puppy we had to keep these discussions a SECRET.  Obviously, he hasn't learned what secret means.  I'll have to work on that with him.


And he took notes.  Dad says one of the first rules of conspiracy is to never write anything down.  Silly Puppy.

Wrap up Wednesday

Is it my imagination or are the Wednesdays just coming up much faster than they used to?

Mom says it's because I'm also writing on Sundays.  Which reminds me!  Only a few days left to submit answers to Week 3 of the Nosevember Contest!

In other news, I have been reassured that Puppy is NOT part Great Dane or Mastiff - if you remember it was quite a worry to me last week.  Mom says he's Dodge Dart and Heinz 57.  I don't get it. 

That's about it.  Lots of rescuing Daddy from work, chasing squirrels, OH!  I did manage to chase one right up the tree in front of our house the other day (a squirrel I mean, not a Daddy)!  Dad was a little upset because I was out without my leash, but it's not my fault he wasn't fast enough with it right?  My Mom said I pulled another Hou-Bolo.  (Kind of like my friend Hou-Bibi at The Poupounette).

Yeah, that's the news.  I'm going to try and convince Mom that maybe she wants to spend the afternoon cuddling me.  Scratching my ears.  Giving me kisses.  Yup, I think that sounds like a very productive afternoon.

Wednesday Wrap up

We had snow overnight.

Not a lot, but enough that Mom said she was NOT impressed when she looked out the window at the butt crack of dawn.  Needless to say she hasn't taken ANY pictures of it yet.

She DID take pictures of Puppy and I playing in leaves a few weeks ago.


Do you notice something there?

That's right! Puppy is getting bigger than me!

Do you think maybe he has some Mastiff or Great Dane in him?  I must ask Mango and Honey.

As you can see, I was forced into getting my picture taken covered in leaves.  Mom thinks I look a little Pit Bull-ish there.  No worries though, I'm still 100% Shar Pei.  Still worried about Puppy being part Mastiff or Great Dane though.  What if he eats all my kibble?  Should I be worried?

Sniff ya later!

Pei-Ess  Remember to play Week 2 of the Nosevember Contest!

Happy Nosevember! Contest is Up!

Well, first I have to thank Mom for getting her mind back together as she got the computer back up and running.  And Dad too for helping.  Puppy...well, he was very enthusiastic.  Maybe not about Nosevember, but that's becuase he's never been through Nosevember and doesn't know how exciting it is.

So, because Mom and I weren't as organized as we could have been for this (although we already have prizes), we don't have friend noses to put up this week.  That's ok!  We're good with this.  We have a back up plan!

First of all, here's how you play.  You'll be given an image like this:

Then you'll be given three options for the best answer.

Is this nose from:
A) Greyhound
B) Moving Truck
C) Bolo; a wonderfully black/dark chocolate coloured Shar Pei

You then email me at bolo (at) magma (dot) ca with the answer.  Or you can leave it in the comments, or post it on my Facebook - I am on Facebook. Mom and I will tally up the answers and keep a running total of who has the correct answers.  The top three guessers will win a prize.  The answers for this week will be posted next week so there will be plenty of time for everyone to participate who wants to.  And if you want to include your nose, I'd be more than happy to add it!  Yes, those who submit noses can still win a prize.  So the answer to that nose up there is?  HAH!  C of course!


Many thank to my Uncle Marty for taking that picture of my nose with his Macro lens.

So, here is this week's contest!

Who does Nose 1 Belong to:


A) Cat
B) Rabbit
C) Yorkshire Terror

Who does Nose 2 belong to:

A) Cow
B) Horse
C) Jack Russel Terror

Who does Nose 3 belong to:




A) Octopus
B) Labraterror
C) Elephant

Who does Nose 4 belong to:

A) Veloioraptor
B) Ostrich
C) Chicken

Go ahead and answer and good luck to everyone!  

And please send noses!

Sniff ya later!

Wednesday Wrap Up


New Picture!
What do you think?

In other news, I WAS going to start my Nosevember contest, but Mom has had a complete meltdown - of her computer.  Probably a bit of her mind too, but mostly her computer.  We're on the new one now and she's finally salvaged all of our pictures (PHEW!) but she hasn't reloaded any of her programs yet, like the one she uses to DO the work required for the Nosevember contest.  Sigh.  So that'll be at least another week.  Sorry guys.  We're doing this Nosevember contest even if it takes us into Pei-vent!

That's about it.  Puppy is enjoying playing with me.  I'm still not sure about all this running around behaviour, especially if it involves grabbing my tail.  Lastly, it's squirrel season around our house.  They're out in force now days so I bet you can only imagine how often I run to the window saying GET OUT OF MY YARD!

New Picture Wednesday!

Look at that!  A new picture of me!

How EXCITING!

Even more exciting is that I've been snoopervising Dad for the past few week in getting ready for Hallowe'en.  Here's what all his work came to:

There's Dad, in the chain maille, Puppy and Grammy.  Nice castle isn't it?  Dad did an AWESOME job!



I wasn't allowed out, my job was to keep my Great-Grandmother company, she had come to see Daddy's display.  We had a lot of people come and see Daddy's (and my) handiwork, and a few people came in to visit with me too!  That was fun!

Ok, time to go and get my first Nosevember 2011 post ready!

Sniff ya later!

Wowey Wednesday


I've had a really busy week.  Everyone is still sick with colds and all that fun stuff so you can bet I've been standing on guard making sure no more cold sickies get in the house!  I'm also exhausti-pei-ted from looking after my people.

I had to delegate yesterday.  Puppy had to go to the Emergency Vet.  So I sent Stuffy with him.

Seems like Puppy was having trouble breathing so his Vet said to Mom, Take him to the Emergency Vet and they will make him better.

Stuffy reports that Puppy had to wear a mask like this for a LONG time - like at least 30 minutes.  I'm glad that wasn't me.  I hate having stuff on my face.  A big thank you to everyone who helped my Puppy feel better!  I'm sending Nose Kisses your way.

Anyway, Mom and Dad and Puppy came him late last night and Mom and Puppy are staying home today so that Stuffy and I can nurse Puppy back to health.  He's much improved from yesterday.

Now I must rest up so I can write another post later on what else I did this week so that you see it before Hallowe'en!
