I'm feeling better today.

The vet said that I might have another seizure or whatever it was within twenty four hours, but nothing happened, at least that I remember.

Ingrid thinks that I've got something called Canine Epileptoid Cramping Syndrome, or the condition formerly known as Spike's Disease. It affects Border Terriers but they don't know a lot about it because some dogs only have one or two episodes in their whole lives! I'm hoping I never have another one, cause even though I don't remember it, it sure did upset everyone yesterday.

(That's me with Ingrid's friend Lauri. Cute, aren't we? Especially me?)

I had a seizure today! I had just walked into the dog park with my new walker, Shiko, and was running around playing when they said I started to twitch and twist and my legs got all wobbly and I finally fell down. Lucky for me there is a vet's office a block away and my walker thought fast and took me there, calling Ingrid to meet us on the way. By the time Ingrid got there (which was pretty quick, I was impressed, she hasn't moved that fast in a year!), I was feeling better and giving out kisses to the ladies in the vet's office. I didn't even remember what happened!

I'll keep you updated.

I hate the Halti

Ok, so whoever thought of this contraption should be forced to live with Paris Hilton for a week. Ingrid and Tyler want me to walk right by their sides, but, geez Lou-eeze! I gotta sniff! There are so many dogs in this neighborhood, if I don't keep track of all of 'em, it's chaos! And when they leave their scent on top of where I left my scent earlier, well, I can't let that slide. Could you?

Training day

Ingrid and Tyler had a "trainer" come in today for a consultation. She said I can't sleep on the bed anymore.

We'll see about that.

I'm not in love ...

So don't forget it.
It's just a silly phase I'm going through.

Westminster Schwag!

If there's anything Ingrid loves, it's free stuff. Here's the bagful of goodies she came home with from the dog show. Note: there were three of the blue mini-frisbees, but I destroyed one right out of the bag. Oh, yeah.


Here's a photo of the Border Terrier BOB from the dog show today. Not a typical picture of such a lauded doggie, but I like it cause it shows how tiring (or boring) the benching area is for dogs.

Here's a better picture.

The Puppy Bowl

Today Animal Planet (why don't they just call it the Animal Channel? See how that rolls off your tongue? So much better than "Planet") showed The Puppy Bowl III. A three hour extravaganza of puppies playing and romping in a small area made up to look like a football field. There was even sound track for crowd cheers and jeers when certain "plays" were made. The half time show was all cats.

Needless to say, my favorite was a peppy 16 week old BT named Spencer, we even went to the website and voted for Spencer as MVP, Most Valuable Puppy. Clips and highlights are here on the Animal Channel website (that's right, CHANNEL. Wanna fight about it? Didn't think so.)

Tony Loves Lital

Here's a shot of me with my walker, Lital. She was getting ready to go away for a month or so, so we had to give her the Valentines' gift early (the gift being the shirt I'm wearing).

Speaking of Valentine's Day, get your butt over to our shop and Spread the Love, Tony-style!

Agility Rocks!

Well, not that I would know first-hand or anything as I've never tried it. But lots of Borders seem to be involved in it so we've added an "Agility Rocks!" design over at the shop.

Check it out!

No Puggles!
