On Saturday, Mom and I were outside. She was planting plants and I was playing and I lost my rubber stick. I have no idea where it went. Mom, Aunt Cassie and I looked for it for a long time. Dad thinks maybe the neighbors took it, but I don't know how. Anyway, Dad said next time they go to Petsmart, they'll get me a new one (the other one had a bunch of holes in it anyway). Mom said they'd get me a new outside toy when they went to the store and they did. I love it so much I brought it inside and now it's an inside toy. Mom said it's weird because it smells like lemonade. I take it outside and as long as it's not really dirty, Dad said I can bring it inside. It's really cool and as soon as I can get pictures to load, I'll post pictures of it.
I'm going to go take a nap now. When Mom gets home I have to help her water her garden and finish laundry. Dad is getting the Big Jeep finished and hopefully we can take it out for a test run on Sunday!!

Update: I'll try the pictures later. Blogger isn't cooperating with me right now. grrrr. I'm going to try to stop in for the party tomorrow as long as I don't have to spend all day helping Mom with her garden.

If any of you have any advice for Mom and Dad, they would really appreciate it. Mom said she's sure she could find the info on the internet, but she doesn't have time any more to search the internet for stuff because of her job and I'm not very good at it (I'm still looking for info on the monsters).
This has been a really boring week. Mom bougt the cheese for the Dogs With Blogs party this weekend. I home I'll be able to get on to join the chat, but Dad is planning on doing the transmission in the Big Jeep and Mom and I will have to help him with some things. I'm going to try to go to the chat even if it's just for a few minutes. I CAN'T WAIT!

If you haven't yet, be sure to go vote for photo of the month at Dogs With Blogs ! Thrawn is still my favorite. That picture makes me laugh sooooo hard! My mom is too slow to get pictures like this of me. Thrawn's Mom is very quick though. I can't stop laughing!
I'm going to go watch for Mom to get home for lunch now.

The neighbirs next door are getting rid of their dogs. It's sad, but at the same time they never pay with the dogs. The dacshund that played fetch is already gone. The dacshund that growls at everybody (including his family) and the annoying beagle are still there, but are going to leave soon. The neighbors like playing with me and I've figured out this cool way to play fetch across the fence. Once all the dogs are gone, the adults said I get all the toys that the dogs never played with. WOOHOO!! The beagle used to be fun to play with, but he started getting on my nerves when he started jumping fences and howling and barking at 1:00 am (I don't like to be woken up at night). After that, I didn't like playing with him anymore. He also has to hump everything!!! It's really annoying! The kids at that house are good. They play fetch with me and scratch my ears and aren't mean or crazy.
Friday while Dad was doing some stuff, the good neighbor adults played fetch with me and then they played with me again Saturday morning because Mom still wasn't feeling good. She feels better now so hopefully by this weekend she'll play fetch with me. She wants to work in her garden really bad which means she'll be outside with a hose!!!!!! The plants are growing inside and Mom and Dad are working on getting the corner that they will eventually get planted in. Mom's excited because she really wants fresh tomoatoes this summer and watermelon. Sasha LOVES watermelon so she's excited, too. I think it's okay, but it takes a long time for Mom to get it ready for us because she has to cut it up and take the seeds out. Sasha likes watermelon almost as much as cheese!
This is a long post about silly stuff so I'm going to stop now. Hopefully tomorrow I'll have something more exciting to post about. Right now everything is pretty boring with Mom being sick.
Hope everybody had a good weekend!

This is also my 150th post! Woohoo!!
Gotta go! He's getting ready to go outside!
Have a great weekend everybody!

When my Mom, Dad and Aunt Cassie came to the rescue place and picked me out, my name was Shananae and they called me Naenae for short. Needless to say I hated that name!! When I first came home I was still in my nervous around men stage so Mom was the one that had to call for me and she tried not to use my name because they knew they were going to change it. When she did use it, I really didn't answer to it because I really hated it!! (Sorry if there's anybody out there with that name.) Mom said it also didn't fit me.
So since Mom named Gunnar (Sasha was named before my Mom got custody of her), it was Dad's turn to name me. I was VERY chaotic the first few days so Dad decided Chaos was a good name. Dad's name is Kris with a K instead of Ch so they decided I would be Kaos instead of Chaos. After a few days I started to show my sweet side so they added Lady to the front of it so that it didn't sound so........chaotic. Mom thinks it's funny saying "Good Kaos" or "Silly Kaos." She doesn't seem to think it's funny to say "Bad Kaos" though.
That's how I became Lady Kaos. I kind of like that it's unique, but I also think my parents are weird. When they finally get me some kids to play with, I hope they don't name them weird names, too. Sasha's middle name is Doo because Mom is a Scooby Doo freak.
I'm going to go watch the people across the alley. I don't like them and they've been doing a lot of stuff in their back yard and I need to make sure they don't get too close to my back yard.
Mom made me do one for Sasha, too. Sasha's cute, but she doesn't pose for pictures as good as I do. I think I'm going to have Mom print at myne so I can hang it on the wall and remind Mom and Dad how special I am!
I think I have Mom's cold now. My nose is itchy and so are my ears. Mom seemed to feel better after sleeping all day and drooling on the couch so I'm going to go do that now.

Okay, here's an update on my ball. You all had great ideas, but they really wouldn't work. Tadpole's idea of howing really loud wouldn't work because I think my howl sounds funny so I never do it unless nobody is looking. I did sort of do a version of this idea though. Dory's idea of having my cat brother sneak in wouldn't work because first of all he never listens to me, but mostly because he's afraid to go outside and it's a detached garage and he'd have a heart attack before he got to the door. Luckie's idea of them getting me a new one definatly wouldn't work because well.....this was a freshly stolen one from the neighbor kids. So here's what happened. Dad went out to the garage Sunday and I went with him and I tried to get it out again. I started to whine and Dad gave me a lecture. He said if I promised to not bring the tennis ball in the garge again, he'd get it. Of course I said I promised! I got my ball and when Mom came out to talk to Dad in the garage, I didn't take the ball in the garage, I just set it on the stop up into the garage and made sure it didn't roll. I'm glad I got my ball back. It wasn't the one I showed you how gross it looked. I had only stole this one 2 days ago! It wasn't even broken in yet! Thanks for your help everybody!
I'm really tired from taking care of Mom yesterday so I'm going to get caught up on reading some blogs and then go take a nap. It's hard taking care of sick people.

Mom keeps coughing and sneezing and sniffing. It's really gross and annoying, especially at night. She can't take any cold medicine because it will react with her other medication and she definatley doesn't want that again. She says it's allergies because the pollen count is so high right now. It's snowing, the flowers are covered with snow. I think Mom is just trying to get out of going to the people vet again.
It's kind of cold in this room so I'm going to go curl up in Mom's blanket on the couch for a nap.
Have a good weekend everybody!

This morning Dad and I made a Mom sandwich. He was on one side and I was on the other and we were all cuddling before it was time to get out of bed for Mom (Dad is off today! He's sleeping in though so I decided to come post real quick before I start helping him in the yard.). We were all snoozing and then Sasha got jealous. I had my head on Mom's pillow and Sasha came and sat on my head and then wiggled between Mom and I. Mom laughed and asked Sasha if she needed to cuddle, too. Mom had to get up after she scratched Sasha's ears a little so we cuddled up with Dad for awhile longer.
My poor head can't take much more abuse! I'm beginning to think it's too big even though I've been told I have a small head for a lab. At least my head isn't as big as Mom's! She's always hitting it on stuff and getting it stuck in clothes and can't wear hats because they won't stay on.
It sounds like Dad is getting up so I better go help him now. Hopefully I won't have any embarassing pictures to show you tomorrow.

Later on, I curled up with Mom. She was cold (like always) and the curve in her legs made a nice comfy place to snooze. Mom scratched my ears and rubbed my nose (that always makes me go to sleep). Mom said something about how cudley and lovey I am now. June will be my 2nd anniversary of being with Mom and Dad and they always talk about how different I am now. Grandma does the same thing. Grandma says my name Kaos doesn't fit anymore (Mom says it does, just not all day every day anymore). Mom says she loves how I'll curl up and cuddle with her on the coach now. We take long naps with her sleeping on me or me curled up near her. She says I'm such a good cuddler that she's thinking about making Dad sleep on the floor and I'll take his place on the bed. I don't think that will really happen though, but I notice when Mom says that, Dad cuddles more.
I also heard Mom and Dad talking about a week long vacation to Wray in July. I didn't hear a lot of the details and it sort of sounds like there aren't many details anyway, but I know that's where Grandma Cheese lives and that's where I go pheasant hunting. I don't think we can go pheasant hunting though, but I'm sure I'll be able to chase the rabbits named Jack. It sounds like we're going to go visit someone Mom hasn't seen in a really long time. I think she was saying it was her grandma and she hasn't seen her in about 15 years. Can you imagine not seeing your grandma for that long? I LOVE when I go see my grandma or when she comes to see me. There aren't many plans for the trip yet, but it sounds like the plans that are there include Sasha and I!!
I'm going to go practice my cute Schmakos face. Mom is such a sucker for that face and it always gets me Schmakos. OH! Mom found a Schamkos coupon in her purse! She said it has to be used by next month. No problem! She should clean out her purse more often!

Okay, now the mean but hilarious story. Sasha can't jump up on the bed like Gunnar and I can so Mom and Dad got a bench storage thing for her to use to jump up. It's at the bottom of the bed and there's usually a blanket or something like that on it and it's padded and if it were a little wider, I'm sure I'd enjoy napping there. Gunnar LOVES to nap there. If it's cold outside (like last night) Dad usually turns the heater on in the bedroom so Mom won't shiver so much and keep everybody awake, so Gunnar has that blowing on him and he's curled up in a blanket on a nice cumfy pad. Sounds like a good spot to nap doesn't it? Well, last night Mom asked if Sasha and I were ready for bed and of course we were so we went running into the bedroom. I immediately jumped up on the bed. Sasha and I get to cuddle with Mom for awhile before Dad comes to bed to warm it up for Mom. I got into position and waited for Mom and Sasha. Sasha wasn't coming and Mom was laughing and told Gunnar that was mean. Of course I had to go inspect. I looked down on the bench and Gunnar had his arm stretched out. He's a long cat anyway so with his arm stretched out he covered the entire bench. Sasha avoids Gunnar because Gunnar is so much bigger than her and she wasn't very nice to him when he was a kitten and smaller than her and he likes to remind her of what she did to him. So Sasha couldn't jump up on the bench to get up onto the bed. It was hilrious!! Mom put Sasha up on the bed and then rubbed Gunnar's belly which always makes him fold up into a ball. THEN, when it was time for us to get in our beds, Sasha couldn't get down. Gunnar had sprawled out so his entire body was covering the bench. She couldn't jump down on my bed either because I was in my bed. Dad laughed and told her to jump down on Gunnar. She's not supposed to just jump down on the floor because she's a dachsie and that's bad for her back. So Dad had to put Sasha on the floor. I am so glad I'm not smaller than the cat!! Nothing against all you dachsies out there though! I love playing with Sasha and the neighbor dachsies, but I also like being able to beat up the cat whenever I feel like it. Sasha's a miniature so she really has trouble beating Gunnar up.
I'm going to go take a nap now before Mom comes home. Sasha and I are going to talk her into giving us 2 Schmakos each! We try everyday, but we're feeling very confident today. Mom feels guilty because we had to get rid of the milkbones and she can't find her homemade dog biscuit recipe. We get lots of stuff when Mom feels guilty.

I had to take care of Mom all weekend. She had a really bad reaction with her medications and didn't feel good all weekend. I was really worried about her and let Dad know he needed go check on her. When she left this morning for work she was acting kind of weird. I think she should call the doctor, but she hates going to the doctor. When Dad comes home for lunch I'm going to let him know that Mom needs to call and if she doesn't, Dad should. I'd do it, but no other humans understand me except Mom and Dad (and sometimes they aren't so good). This is another reason Mom needs to find a job where she can stay home with me all day. That way I can keep an eye on her! How am I supposed to know how she's feeling if I'm at home and she's at the office?
I hope everybody else had a good Easter! I went to Grandma's!!!! I know I already said that, but I LOVE Grandma's house!!! Her yard is so HUGE and there's so much grass! I ran in it and wasn't covered in mud like at our house!
I'm going to go watch for Mom and Dad now. I REALLY want a Schmakos! Why do they have to put them up so high and is such a strong container? I don't think they trust us!

Okay, enough venting about the pet food recall. Sasha got hurt last night and almost gave Mom a heart attack. Sasha doesn't play a lot of fetch because she's gotten hurt pretty bad a few times. They were all accidents, but she doesn't care. Well, the past few days she's been playing again and having fun. Mom's been really excited about it. Last night Dad was throwing my rope and Mom was throwing Sasha's buttless bunnie and Sasaha hit the coffee table. She started walking off and Mom knew she was hurt bad because she was going to the bedroom. Usually if she's not really hurt or just a little hurt, Sasha will run to Mom and whine and want to be told she's a poor puppy. Dad said she was limping so Mom caught up to her in the hallway and then all of a sudden we hear Mom scream "SHE'S BLEEDING! THERE'S BLOOD! LOTS OF BLOOD!" Dad and I went running to the hallway and Mom had blood all over her arm and shirt. When Sasha hit the coffee table, she bent her nail back just right. It wasn't as bad as Mom thought, but Mom's a Mom and freaks out when her babies bleed (especially Sasha!). Mom and Dad got Sasha cleaned up and wrapped her foot and told her not to mess with it. She walked funny for awhile and I laughed at her because I now know what I look like when Dad puts my boots on me. Mom got cleaned up too and then we all went to bed. This morning Mom and Dad cleaned Sasha's foot and there was no new blood. They cleaned off the dried blood and whent ahead and wrapped it up again so she wouldn't mess with it. If that was me, that bandage wouldn't stay on very long, but Sasha leaves her's on. (I think she thinks it gives her more sympathy.) They said tonight they'd take it off and she probably won't need it back on. Mom told me to take care of Sasha today, but her poor puppy faces don't work on me! Okay, maybe a little. I did get up and check on her a few times last night and I keep licking her bandage. I just want to make sure Dad gets the bandage on right.
Sunday is Easter and Grandma said she wants Sasha and I to come for Easter! WOOHOO!!! I hope Mom and Dad do take us! I LOVE Grandma's house! There's so much grass to roll and play in! Have a good Easter everybody!

My cat brother Gunnar has a same radar for BBQ flavored chips. Gunnar doesn't usually have much to do with human food unless it's a BBQ flavored chip, then watch out! When Mom and Dad make fish he's usually right there begging for some, but he's not allowed to have fish cuz it doesn't agree with him at all!!!! Mom and Dad have to get a special kind of dry food that doesn't have fish in it or we all suffer BADLY!!
Mom says I have a Jeep radar. Whenever I hear a Jeep running in the driveway I want to be out in the Jeep going wherever it's going. I don't care who's Jeep it is and if it's just going around to the alley to pull in the back yard, I MUST be in it. Otherwise I whine and drive Mom crazy (which is usually what happens). It can be one of the quiet Jeeps and I'll still hear it.
My Jeep Radar and Gunnar's BBQ chip Radar is nothing compared to the Cheese Radar of Sasha. Maybe it's because she's older than us and has more experience. Whatever the reason, I agree with Mom and Dad when they call her a cheese freak. By the way, the rabbit in the picture with Sasha no longer has a tail or butt stuffing as of last night.
Do any of you have weird radars and are they as freakish as Sasha's? I'm kind of curious how weird we really are. Mom and Dad say we're weird all the time. I say we learned from them though.

Okay, here are the steps:
Step 1: See how dirty the water dish is from not being used much over the winter. Bang out as much dirt as you can.
Step 2: Clean out the rest of the dirt with water.
Step 3: Fill the water dish up to the top. That way there's lots of water for swimming.
Step 4: Run and Run and Run and Run and Run and get really hot and tired.
Step5: First clean off your ball. All that dirt starts to taste funny on you ball after awhile. DO NOT hand the ball to Mom right after coming out of the water dish. She doesn't like that and will ignore you until the gooey feeling in her hand goes away. Bounce it on the patio a few times to get the excess water off, THEN hand it to Mom for more throwing.
Step 6: Step into the water dish with your front feet.
Step 7: Stand in the water for a few minutes.
Step 8: This is the swimming part. Splash water onto your back legs and all over the patio. This picture was supposed to be of me swimming, but I tricked Mom and stepped out instead. She went inside to change her batteries and I swam! hehehe
Step 9: After a good swim in the water dish, lay on the patio in the water you splashed everywhere. Cement is the best patio material because if it's in the shade, it's usually cool.
That's how you swim in your water dish! Remember to only do this outside! Mom and Dad get really mad if you do it inside. Sometimes they forget to set up your outside dish though and if you do it once inside, they'll get the hint to fill the outside dish.
Enjoy! It's a BLAST!!!
