My Trip to the Groomer's...

So I woke up yesterday morning and my mommy told me that I was going for a R-I-D-E! I got so excited and started running all over the house like a wild banshee and my mom chased me around for like five minutes trying to get my collar and leash on. Finally, I let her catch me and I jumped into my mawmaw's car with my mommy, mawmaw and Aunt Lauren. I was so excited jumping all over the car and barking at random people on the sidewalk and acting like a crazy man.I really love to look out the window because I am very nosy and don't like to miss anything. I jump around the car which I know my mommy doesn't like, but I can't help it. I do this so I can see better.First, we took my Aunt Lauren to school and my mommy got this sweet shot of me and my Aunt Lauren. I was wiggling because I wanted to get to the window in case I missed something.
My mom kept sticking this thing in my face and I wasn't being very cooperative she said. She cut my head off in this shot, but she thought that it looked cool and she wanted to share it with my "blugger" friends.So we dropped off at Aunt Lauren at school with much barking from me and we kept driving. All of a sudden everything started to look a little familiar to me and I realized that I was going to the groomer's. My mawmaw stopped the car and I started screaming bloody murder. My mom picked me up and grabbed my bookbag and took me into the building. She handed me over to the groomers and gave me a kiss all while I was struggling to get back to her. She left and a couple of hours later she came to pick me up and I gave her a million kisses and dug my claws deep into her skin just in case she decided to leave me in this place. On the ride home I was a little more calm and when we got home I ran to the couch and laid down. I was pooped. It was a very stressful day for me, but doesn't my new haircut look so nice?Then my mommy and mawmaw left. They said that they were going to Petsmart to get me a harness for the carseat that my mommy bought and never uses so that way she can start using it so I don't cause any accidents. I watched them leave and used my sad eyes to lure them back, but it didn't work. I waited patiently for them to return while resting on the couch. Hey a dog has to get his sleep!
Finally they were back and they put me in that dreadful contraption which they called a "harness" or something. Don't I look cute in this? I was so glad when she finally took it off.

Avery and Ms. Platti

video

Ms. Platti is my favorite toy. I love to play with her and then push her off the couch or the bed and then just stare at her like in this video my mommy shot of me and Ms. Platti. I have my mommy trained very well because she always picks up Ms. Platti when I push her off.

I Got In Trouble..

I got in trouble this morning. My mommy was mad at me because I was messing around in the kitchen. See sometimes my grandparents' dogs leave some kibble or other good stuff near their kennels and I try to steal it and eat it because I have to be on special food because I have a lot of allergies. My mom got mad because I was doing just that this morning.

I learned the other day that my mom is being laid off from work and I'm kind of worried about what this means for me. Thank goodness we live at home with my mawmaw and popaw because otherwise we would have to live in a cardboard box with a flap and that would just suck. I am also worried because I am "high-maintenance" and want to be sure that my mom can afford all my needs. I'm sure my mawmaw would help her because she just loves me! My mom has been kind of down in the dumps because she is worried about finding a job but I'm trying my best to be a good puppy and make her laugh so she can feel better.

My mommy and mawmaw are going tomorrow night to see Wicked and they will be gone probably until 11 or 11.30 at night. Who am I supposed to sleep with until my mom gets home? Um. Hello! You would think that she would have thought about my sleeping arrangements before she planned this, but NO! Maybe Aunt Lauren will sucker and feel sorry for me and let me sleep with her until they get home.

My mommy and mawmaw are both taking a vacation day on Friday and apparently I'm supposed to go to the groomer's and get a haircut that day. Just great! My mommy and mawmaw are going to drop me off and then come and pick me up. I always cling to my mommy when she picks me up with my nails dug deep into her skin just so she won't leave me there. I always have to take a special bookbag when I go to the groomer's. None of the other dogs do, so I get a little embarrassed sometimes. I have to have a special blanket for my kennel and a special towel because I am allergic to cotton and can't lay on normal blankets. My mom said that she would try to get a before and after picture of me for me to post on my blog but we will have to see if I will let her take the picture. That depends on my mood that day.

My mommy tried to get a picture of me this morning of me being mean and grumpy and showing attitude. Everytime she tried to take the picture I would look all sweet and innocent. I don't want the world seeing me when I'm not at my best. That will simply just not do. So here's the picture that she did get. Don't I look like an angel?

Introductions...

So my mommy got the harebrained idea to start a blog for me after she ripped off someone else and their idea from some Chihuahua site she was on. Figures! I don't quite understand the things that she does sometimes but anyways. She wanted me to introduce myself and tell you all about me and the things that I like. First of all my name is Avery but sometimes when my mommy or mawmaw gets mad at me they called me by my first and middle name which is Avery Jack.

I am four years old and I am a Chihuahua/Schnauzer mix and I just love anything that has to do, with yes, you guess it, ME! I have made a list of my information just so that you can understand me better.

Name: Avery Jack
Age: 4
Birthday: April 21, 2006
How I Met my Mommy: She picked me out at the flea market after I used my sad puppy eyes to make her feel sorry for me and take me home.
My Faves: My Mommy and Mawmaw, Ms. Platti (my favorite toy), bellyrubs, licking my feet over and over, acting like I'm a Great Dane, barking at absolutely nothing but just to hear the sound of my voice, going for "RIDES!", treats, cuddling, going Night Night!!, being nosy, chasing my tail (I never can seem to catch it), eating, checking for crumbs, checking for holes in my eyelids and seeing my mommy and mawmaw come home from work.
My Annoyances: Aunt Lauren (now this varies depending on if she is the only one home or not, I am a good suck up), people messing with my feet, door bells (on tv or real), people walking down the street when I'm in the car, my mommy not letting me hog the bed at nighttime, my mommy reading right before bed when I want a belly rub, being ignored when I'm trying to make a statement.

10 Reasons why I am one spoiled rotten dog:

1. I have close to 40 different toys (and yes I play with each and every single one of them)
2. I have my own wardrobe (enough said..)
3. I have a blanket for at home, a blanket for the groomers, a blanket for the winter and have a dog bed, my own pillow and bookbag for when we go on rides.
4. My mommy buys me birthday presents, christmas presents, and presents just because on a frequent basis.
5. My mommy has a secret (I know about it even if she doesn't think I do) stash of Ms. Platti's because she heard somewhere that they were being retired.
6. I sleep with my mommy every single night and sometimes when I hear my popaw get up in the morning I claw at the door and he lets me out and I run to my mawmaw's room and sleep with her until she gets up and then I run back to my mommy's bed and sleep with her.
7. My mommy spends more money on me then she does on herself.
8. I ate my mom's Harry Potter book and she didn't kill me.
9. I have to be comfortable when I go to sleep whether my mommy is comfortable or not.
10. Because I'm just so darn cute it's hard not to spoil me.
