My Day

I haven't gone to my rehab center in 20 days all because of STINKY. Finally, mum came to her senses and decided to take me for my rehab swim. I thought GREAT!

But then, I saw her putting STINKY into MY SunshadeMOBILE. WHAT!!!

Dear Zach:

You know you are my good friend so I won't hold any grudges against you. However, I do have to let you know that one of the comments you made regarding taking STINKY to MY rehab center and to go see Mr. Goatee gave mum the smart idea of letting STINKY tag along...

Don't worry, I still love you as a friend, but please, be careful of what you write next time.

Your friend,
Miss Sunshade

So yes, the STINK bomb came along.

We got there a bit early because mum was trying to avoid rush hour traffic. Since we were early, mum took us to the park next to where Mr. Goatee lives. She wanted to show STINKY all the animals. Unfortunately, because it was raining, the goosies/duckies/horsies/goaties were all hiding in their shed. I was very disappointed that I didn't get to run along the fence, arguing with the mini horsie.

It was also very unfortunate because we got stuck with the camera. Mum tricked us over to the playground, made us go "up" so we couldn't get away, and started snapping away.

On the count of 3,





But stupid STINKY, he caved and looked into the camera....

Then the EVIL mum cheated, she asked me "Do you want a PINE CONE??" ..... that was not fair!


We went for a walk around the park, and believe me, it was a disaster. At least for me it was, and mum too I think towards the end. STINKY just wouldn't walk straight or leave me alone!!!

Can you tell I was afraid of his stinky breath??

The only good thing that came out of this walk was - I saw a.....

After what it seemed like the looooooooongest walk of my life, it was swim time.

I did my usual stuff you know:

I retrieved

(notice that's the new toy from my KONG box?? Too bad it had a hole and water started getting in....)

I swam against the jets

I did dolphinic flips to catch my ring and stick

I was being a good girl while STINKY was being annoying,

Not only was he annoying, he was being bad.

He found this treat canister and was trying to help himself. It wouldn't have been so bad if he had shared, but HE DIDN'T!!!

Then mum had a smart idea, during my break, she decided to stink up the pool......

Thank doG only half of him went in or else the whole pool would have stunk up for sure. You won't believe this, but STINKY almost fell asleep in the warm water. Look at how happy I was to see STINKY out of MY pool!!!

After my swim, the inevitable came..... the STINK bomb was part of the package too. Since I get itchy if I don't get the salt water rinsed off afterwards, mum thought she might as well rinse STINKY too.

While I was busy drying myself,

STINKY was dancing all around me. (mum: he was trying to get Sunshade to play)

He obviously didn't understand how important this drying part was. He was wet too.

Mum had to dry him with a towel, then he started to shiver in the car.

I'm actually very thankful he shivered, because, mum decided to take us to Petsmart and put STINKY through all the indignity that I've had to put up with.

Remember me?


I was so happy because I got a free trip to Petsmart. I love to watch little critters from outside the windows.

I saw a couple of blond Fufu's, I bet they are not as smart as Fufu.

What I found to be extremely fascinating were these,

Guinea piggies... They were on my X-mas Wish List, but I never got one.... HMMMPH!

I watched intently,

Then I got a little distracted by a couple of handsome...... err, I meant nice fellows. No, SERIOUSLY, I wasn't flirting with a 4 months old pitbull pup, nor was I flirting with an 8 year old Chihuahua.... You have to believe me.

(I think it is worth mentioning, mum had a sleeping STINKY in one arm, my leash in the second arm, and the camera in the third arm. Told ya that woman has more than 2 arms sometimes!)

Mum bought ME a couple of small size tennis balls. I guess she thought a good girl like me deserved to have tennis balls of all shapes and sizes. (mum: they were bought for..um............)

But that STINKY, he just HAD to take one of my new ball balls....

Not only did STINKY take one of my small ball balls, he also took my BIG ball ball!! LOOK, I have proof,

I couldn't stand the thought of him stinking up my BIG ball ball, so I went over to try and reclaim my ball ball. Now just look at him! How disrespectful!

Not only did he stick out his tongue, he also showed me his wee wee. Geez.... kids today....

None the less, I got my BIG ball-ball back,

AND my small ball ball,

All is gooooood for now......


Texas's Mum said...

WOW Miss Sunshade
You have had a busy day and I don't think
it was nice that your mum tricked you into looking at the camera.
Sometimes my mum does that to me so I feel for you.
And as for the STINKY one I think you should find a hidey place for all YOUR toys so STINKY will not touch them.

Love and Licks,
Texas (and his humans).

Oscar's mummy and daddy said...

So it seems you are getting braver now & touching things that Jaffa has touched!

Did you see I was brave & went swimming last weekend? It wasn't as bad as I had feared.

The guinea pigs looked very cute. My mum used to have 3 guinea pigs she says.

I think you are getting use to the Stink Bomb. I smell trouble... U gonna be loving his company more & more.

Oh, BTW, I think Kaylie has been reading Jaffa's blog & using my name to leave comments. Puupies are horrible. Knowing that Kaylie, she's probably trying to get Jaffa to flirt with her...

wally said...

hi miss sunshade--i love your swimming pics. though perhaps you should get a bikini! my sister and i play long games of intrigue stealing tennis balls from each other. (shhh--the secret is--i don't even like tennis balls!)


Boo Casanova said...

oh sunshade,

you are such a flirt in that video. even though you DENY AND DENY AND DENY, but we all know you are flirting with those two!

wet wet licks


Duke said...

You always look like you have so much fun swimming at rehab. It was nice to see Jaffa swimming too. I think you're getting used to each other more and more!

Love ya lots,

Chelsea said...

Oh Miss Sunshade,

I think Stinky....like any other pack animal just has a desire to belong...
Sorry, I made the mistake of looking into his adorable little eyes and I got sucked in

Oh, Sunshade, if you weren't flirting, you were trying to play with STRANGE dogs. What does that mean for your relationship with STINKY? Hmmm?

Wow - sorry Sunshade - I didn't know the (not) EVIL Mum would take me seriously! I'll be more careful in the future about what I post (yeah, right). Hey - those balls look pretty small - don't inhale when you have them in your mouth!

Lacey said...

Sunshade, if everything that Jaffa touches stinks so bad, why do you have the little ball that he smelled up in your mouth? We agree with Zach - the little ball looks too small for you to put on your mouth. Be careful so you don't choke on it.

T-man Angel said...

Miss Sunshade,
You are such a nice patient big sister with your cute little brother. He doesn't look stinky in his pictures, but I believe you :)


Toby said...

Wow, you and Stinky are reall spending a lot of quality time together... And you're being so patient with the lil' fella. I think you deserve a Guinea piggy. Don't u think??

In Honour Of Burns Night - 25 January 2007 - Another Poem for You Miss Sunshade my adorable Canadian Sweetheart.

The Ballad of Sunshade and Stinky.

Miss Sunshade I have been long gone from your Blog and so far away,

And now I look upon your news watching with envy as you and Stinky play!

I know you do not like him much but he still looks such a darlin' sweet wee Pup!

But, hey, I thought you were going to send him to me, all Stinky and parcelled up!

I have looked out for the delivery man, each and every day,

But no 11lb Stinky parcel from you ever seems to come my way.

I have even plugged my handsome nose in preparation for this event,

A Stinky Pal from Sunshade would be just heaven sent!

So I look now at your news with tear dimmed doggie eyes,

When are you going to post me Stinky, my promised 11lb Surprise?!!

Love and Poetic Licks from Your Scotsman Sweetheart, Marvin The Dog Bard of Bonnie Scotland. x for Stinky and xxxxxxxxxxx for Sunshade.

Loui (and his mum!) said...

I love to see you swimming Miss Sunshade, you always look like you are having a great time! Glad Stinky liked it too!

Loui xx

Myeo said...

Hey Sunshade, you are such a nice lady being very patient with 'Stinky' and we believed that small tennis ball must have stinked your breath. You really deserve a guinea pig for putting up with 'Stinky' and his stinky stuff.

Boy n Baby

Ang said...

i wish I could rename birdie 'stinky' cause that is what she is. I have been putting up with her for over a year now. It's horrible. You are so lucky stinky isn't staying forever.
My 'stinky' is starting school today at Dogstars. Maybe she will be to dumb and they will keep her there over night.

Joe Stains said...

sunshade, tanner does that dancing crap too, I don't get it. anyway, I am glad that jaffa is also getting some clothes, ya know, the ultimate in humiliation.

barking of humiliation, please don't look at my blog today, mom was being extra mean :(

Chicote said...

Non-the-less you look like you had lots of fun. I still can't go outside yet. It's still to cold.


MJ's doghouse said...

Oh sunshade..you are so patient...my mom is putting us in a foster program...so i think i am in for all kinds of that stuff...but as long as we can make a little doggy happy....and he doesnt touch my stuff...everything will be fine

L said...

Wow Sunshade! You sure do love those Guinea Pigs, eh? You look so cute staring at them. You look so intent. Thanx so much for linking to me on your blog. I love reading your blog. Mom makes me read Jaffa's blog too. Sorry, hope you don't hate me!

Love and Smoochies,
Sweets - the little big man
