Touched By An Angel

Three guesses to tell me who that beautiful girl is???? Want a hint??? Ok I can't hold it any longer...it's SISTER KIANA pre-gray!! Angel Kiana is on the cover of the 2009 Brown Trout Vizsla Calendar.

Mom got a phone call from a photographer last night informing her that Sister made the 2009 cover. I got really scared for a minute cuz mom dropped the phone and starting crying...the photographer did not know Kiana is in Heaven. What a nice surprise for mom!!

About 8 years ago, Mom and the photographer met and took pictures of Sister Kiana. Every year the photograpehr submits them to various calendars. Sister Kiana has been inside a few but NEVER on the cover!

Disc Dog Duo

Mom and Dad took us to the Bay Area for Frsibee Fun yesterday!! Brrr it was so cold, Mom had on 3 sweatshirts...and it was foggy and damp out. Mom even said her feet were sloshing but we didn't care...just THROW It already!! It was so windy that even the Hot Shots were having a hard time catching frisbees. Mom is still learning how to get action shots and didn't get any of me with the Frisbee...she's fired!
Here's one of me FLYING! and more of me on the move!

And one Miss Lisa took with her fancy camera!

Miss Lisa also got some amazing shots of Sister Flirt.


More great pictures from Miss Lisa:

Famous


I'm famous! Yep, the Gabalicoius offically is famous...ok maybe not famous but Xombie's mom made a cool drawing of me and Sister Flirt too.




Below us are the mafiaosis...that's Gino the pug that was over the other day!


Wild Weavers

Mom is working very hard on dedicating time to train our poles. I am still perfect just so ya know! Mom added guides to the poles and moved the xpens back. And we are still flying through 90 mph. Next step is to remove the xpens! I don't even need Mom next to the poles anymore.

And Sister Flirt

Queen Toy Snatcher

My precious! (notice the NO STUFFING INSIDE Sticker - these are Mom's favorite toys too)
Mom says I have been behaving badly but I disagree. IT IS ALL ABOUT ME. All the toys are mine mine mine mine and mine!! My favorite new game is to take every toy and then shove them into Flirtie's face and see if she'll chase me! Sigh, mostly she just ignores me.
Mom can't believe I had ALL those toys in my mouth! This was a tough decision - keep all the toys or beg for pistachios....

Flirtie's Second Near Death Experience

Ha Ha Parker spilled the beans. My sister Flirtie is officially a DORK!! You can read about her 2nd near death experience here!

http://parkermalone.wordpress.com/

Parker was nice enough not to comment that Sister Flirtie also missed the dog door by 1 foot and ran straight into the sliding glass window but I heard mom tell Auntie Kellee.

Getting our Groove on!

Sister Flirtie and I have been groovin' through the weave poles 90 mph! Mom moved them so they are only 5" apart and we are doing the whole set now. Pretty soon Mom is going to start timing us but I think I'm faster than that Gianormodobe!!

Here I am demonstrating offside weaves with Mom on the left...notice my "ear flying" entrance!

And Sister Flirtie, too:

Baby Kisses


Gino's mom was kind enough to send Mom these fancy photos from her new camera of us giving baby Morgan kisses. We all wuffed her. Even Sister Flirtie was gentle.


Fun with Friends

Gino and Morgan came to visit us today!!! Morgan is a human baby and I wuff her. I begged Morgan's mom to leave her but it didn't work. I played a little bit with Gino but mostly Gino and Sister Flirt played and tormented me. They got me in trouble. Apparently I am not allowed to be the Fun Police or Queen Toy Snatcher..fine whatever. But look at them team up on me! Gino honors Flirt's point!

Flirt move in on me!

But the plan backfires! I beat them both to the toy!

Ha, attack pug, Get her Gino Get her!


That was hard work... 3 tired happy puppies..notice Gino is sideways. Mom can't figure out how to get him right-side-up. He's right sight up on our computer...she's baffled.

Missing Vizsla Fort Lauderdale: Help Find Bodi



Fellow Vizsla Owners -- Brien and Linda Mastriana need help finding their 6 month old vizsla pup Bodi. Bodi has been missing since June 28, 2008 at 7:30 pm and was last seen in Fort Lauderdale at AIA and Oakland Park Blvd. He is an intact male 6 month old puppy wearing a Green Collar, name tag and red rabies tag. His left eye is slightly darker and he has a small white patch on his chest.
Please feel free to cross post to any list you can. Let's bring this boy home!!

A big SHOUT OUT TO ROCKET'S MOM for the good idea to post this on the blog!!

Where's Waldo

Here's a blooper outake of our weave training. Mom was trying to videotape my fast recall...silly mom was aiming at the ground tho. Can you find me?


video

More bloopers - And Sister Flirt's fantastic recall. She stops on a dime and comes back to mom (at home with no distractions anyway - Mom was so mad she almost left her at the park last week for not listening).

Me and My Peeps

I followed them all the way out to safety from the crazy dog racing!!






Sister Flirt and her peeps...I think she's a breedist. She was very excited to find Mini Me and another dobe to play with!




Sister Flirt was the President of Doberman welcoming committe.




After we got home, I took a short nap and had to protect my baby...notice it's all balled up so I can fit the whole thing in my mouth if Sister Flirt gets too close. It's 1.5 feet long.

PSA: Canine Heimlich Manuever

Mom wanted to give a Public Service Announcment today after Flirtie almost choked to death last night. Mom is still shaken up about it. At dinner time, we got leftover chicken breast YUM YUM YUM with bananas too. I guess Sister Flirtie got so excited, she sucked down the entire thing at once. Mom cut it up, but it didn't cut all the way through. So the WHOLE THING went down. Sister Flirtie made a funny sound but kept on eating so Mom wasn't sure what was going on. Then she kept gagging up tiny pieces of chicken so Mom still didn't know what was wrong. And then she started gasping and heaving. Mom screamed for Dad to come help and he picked Flirtie right up and did the Heimlich on her. Another small piece of chicken came out and she seemed ok for a second and then the gasping started again. Mom was crying, praying for Flirtie. Dad grabbed Flirtie again and did the Heimlich. But nothing happened. And then WHAM up came the whole chicken breast not chewed at all!!!!! Sister Flirtie being as silly as she is tried to gobble it up whole again but Mom grabbed it.

Mom thought she would share this handy link which shows a few different methods:

What is a Vizsla to do

when it's hot, sticky, humid smoky...did I mention hot 108 degrees! Being Gabalicious I immediately knew what the doctor ordered...

RACE TRACK
In honor of Sister Kiana I introduced Flirtie to Inside Race Track. Sister Kiana created the game but now I get to be the LEADER...the game is much more fun when I'm the leader.

video

You can even leap and fly....off the couches!! Uh oh...this one got us in big trouble.....

No more Indy 500 after that one!
