hair gets in my eyes

I went to the vet yesterday. The woman who takes care of me got a little freaked out by my right eye. Every morning she cleans the schmutz out of my eyes, which I really appreciate, though I can't help but wiggle around when she does it. For the past week my right eye has been a little cloudy and she hasn't been able to get the junk out of my eyes. Yesterday, I guess it looked really bad and she thought I might've hurt the membrane in my eye, so she took me to the vet.

I didn't mind so much since the vet is really cute. I admit, I loved the attention. She examined my eyes, asked a bunch of questions and rubbed my belly a lot. Turns out, I have hair growing in my eyes. In the corner, near the tear ducts, the hair is growing in my eye. So every time the woman who takes care of me would wipe it away, it would just go underneath my eyelid, only to resurface after I blink. So we're going to an opthalmologist tomorrow, to see if they should "cryo" it (whatever that means) so that the hair will stop growing, or if I need eye surgery.

Although I don't know what I'm going to dress up as for Halloween, this could throw a wrench in my plans. If I have to have eye surgery and wear an eye patch, maybe I should dress like a pirate.

happy birthday "dad"

cody snorgles wonton
This is a photo of me, my brother Cody, and the man who takes care of me. Today's his birthday. I don't know how old he is in people or dog years, which isn't surprising, considering that I don't even really know his name. I guess I could just call him "Dad". He's a real softie, so that should be good for a few extra treats. I hope he gets a lot of presents today so I can chew on the wrapping paper and maybe even some ribbon!

Oh, and sorry about not blogging for a while. I let my brother crash here for the weekend, I even let him blog, but his visit just wore me out. I was trying to put my toys back in their hiding places, where I like to play with them because Cody tried to take over and mess with my toys and stuff. Brothers, you love them but sometimes they're just a pain. Anyway, things are back to normal now so I should be posting regularly again.

Hi, my name is Cody! I am Wonton's brother. We're not sure which of us is older, but as you can see I am taller.

I'm visiting Wonton for the weekend. He showed me how to access the internet when he stayed at our place, and this time he said that I could post to his blog. Maybe Cabrini (the woman who takes care of me) will let me post to The Lofty Dog Blog when I go back home.

Wonton has a pretty sweet set up here. Auntie Celia and Uncle Jim have a big place, and they let him run all over the place. They've been trying to teach me how to share. I think that means I get to take Wonton's stuff and put it in my crate.

I'm having a lot of fun, but I miss my half-sister Layla. This is the first time we've been apart for so long! And I'm getting tired of this collar. I don't have one of my own, so I had to borrow one from my roommate Nikki.

I gotta go. I can never find the bathrooms in this place. They didn't like it when I went over by those suitcases, I think I'll try behind that couch this time.

does this make me look fat?

The Lofty Dog is throwing another Yappy Hour this Thursday, to coincide with the Downtown Art Walk. Since it's October and Halloween is just around the corner, in addition to Yappy Hour being a great event for downtown dogs and their owners, there will be a Halloween Fashion Show. Cabrini of The Lofty Dog asked me if I would model some outfits in the show, and of course I said yes.

I tried on a few outfits this past Saturday. I won't lie, I looked really good in more than a few of them. This picture of me was taken on a cell phone camera. So you can't really see how good I look because it's so blurry. In any case, I'm still open for suggestions on what to dress as for Halloween. So please come to the Howl-O-Ween Fashion Show on Thursday during Art Walk, and let me know which outfits you like best on me.

downtown dog walk

This Wednesday at 6:30pm, the Downtown Neighborhood Council is hosting the inaugural Downtown Dog Walk in Pershing Square. Downtown dogs and their owners are invited to come to the park and take a walk, together. How cool is that? My friend Dodger and his owner Ken put a lot of work into it. They started it up, organized the Yahoo newsgroup, and blogged about it, so I hope other downtown dogs come out and have fun.

Come out Wednesday October 10, 2007 at 6:30 pm for the first Downtown dog walk and community gathering. Come meet your downtown neighbors and their dogs as we tour the streets of downtown.

Help make downtown Los Angeles a dog friendly community and help encourage City Hall to allocate public space for off leash dog parks!

Pershing Square
532 S Olive St
Los Angeles, CA 90013
(Meet near the southwest entrance adjacent to the fountain)

Dog walk and community event

If you haven't checked it out yet, my friends at The Lofty Dog have started their very own blog - and they write that they'll be at the dog walk, too! Looks like this is shaping up to be a good doggie event.

back home

Sorry for the lack of blog posts lately, I've been hanging out with my owners, getting reacquainted. I told them that although I had a great time hanging out with my brother Cody and his loftmates, they shouldn't leave me for that long ever again. They rubbed my belly and let me sleep on their bed, so I think that means they're in complete agreement.

In more interesting news, I have balls. They just sort of grew in while my owners were in Germany. I was feeling a little heavier than usual down there, not much but enough. So I looked down and - whoa! Furry little balls! I've been sporting a lot of wood, too, which makes it difficult to walk.

Speaking of wood, I met this great little miniature Pinscher, or min-pin, the other day on 5th and Spring. Her name was Poppy Flower and she was gorgeous. Pretty brown eyes. Anyway, she was with these two Japanese girls who loved, I mean LOVED, my name. They kept giggling and saying, "Oooh Wonton! So cute!" Especially when I jumped on Poppy Flower and tried to hump her. So the woman who takes care of me gave them my URL. I hope Poppy Flower emails me for a playdate and sends me her picture. Gawd, she was hot.

There are a lot of canine activities in downtown this week so I'll be sure to blog about them shortly. So stay tuned, I've got more coming.
