Just Try to Put Those Mittens on Me Again

I had HER swipe this picture of me from Bailey's Buddy.  Don't you think it's a great likeness.  See what a tough dog I am.

It has been very cold here the last few days.  It's hard to stay outside very long.  Most of the snow has gone and the roads are clear, but unless I wear mittens (she calls them my shoes), my paws just don't like going on walks and I fight her every time she tries.  Guess SHE'll have to be satisfied with short trips to the yard and rides in the car.

It's also nice to sleep on the couch, look out the front window and beg for treats.  Maybe I won't have to beg if I use this "gat."  Oh, and SHE says I can't smoke indoors.

UPDATE (from mommie):  Izzie has one paw that I think suffered frostbite in the time before we became companions.  She really can't stand severe cold on that paw.  One time in Wyoming I had to carry her to the house when she sat in the middle of the road and tucked her paws under her.  She tries to kick off any type of dog footwear I put on her.  Right now it's pretty dry so it's not so hard on her.


  1. I'm glad we got to the bottom of that! SHE does understand, it's just that PEOPLE do things so differently.

  2. Mr. Leonardo, no matter how tough I try to be it just doesn't work. SHE just picks me up and does things HER way. All I can do is bark at her and I don't really dare to do that too much or SHE yells at me. I don't like being yelled at.

  3. Dear Isabelle, Threaten her with a possible expensive surgical procedure if SHE keeps imposings her personal "syle" on your every action...don't go for "tough" when a "whimper" or two will do the trick.
