Maui at the Hydro Treadmill…go Maui go

Here’s my boy, Mau Mau (aka The Mauster or Mr. Pencil) on A Well Adjusted Pet‘s new hydro treadmill at the Rex Center in Pacifica, CA. Woo Hoo. Go Mau Go. The barking in the background is Jack Jack shouting words of encouragement. Mauster loved the hydro treadmill, and was crazy wild and invigorated the rest of the day. It’s so therapeutic for my old boy plus helps with his waistline. And yes, I did call him “Bubble Butt” in one of the videos, but hey he called me that name first and I wasn’t even in the water.

Barking like a dog…

The Mechanical Dog

I was walking him around the shopping center this weekend thinking you are The Mechanical Dog, the perfect dog. Just then, a black poodle approached. I thought “Don’t bark,” and he didn’t. We walked on a bit father and a fluffy small red dog approached and I thought, “Hey a red dog. You should bark, Mechanical dog. Add some spice to our lives.” And he barked and trotted off. Last night he curled up beside me. In my sleep, I thought he was a pillow, and I fluffed his rump. He growled mechanically. He is perfect in every way. He is The Mechanical Dog.

Handsome Lad

So, this is our boy, which is the same boy, who is in the post below this one, except this is his short look. The photo in the post below this one is his loooooong look.

Boo Hiney

I feel like this is an optical illusion, butt (ha ha) it’s not. He farts and no wonder it smells so bad. Look how far the fart travels inside his innards to build up stench. Tail like a tiny whip. He the man!

King Mau Mau

Maui, in his enthusiasm, jumped off the sofa and hurt his leg a week or so ago. The sofa paid the price. The Big Guy and I hauled the sofa from the living room into the driveway and cut 5 inches off of each leg, practically rendering it legless. The sawed off sofa is Maui’s throne. He is seen here gracefully walking down his ramp (which he had at the time of the accident). Now, if he decides to super dog it off his throne he probably will not hurt himself. He is receiving therapy every day, or I should say more appropriately I am trying to give him therapy, but it mostly ends in giving myself therapy because the dog is so stubborn that I am doing most of the work. He has mended enough to return to his full walking routine, which is actually a sniffing routine with many stops where his nose detects God knows what – a MacDonald’s wrapper, dog pee, a raccoon walked the spot last night, gum, etc. He is a determined little soul and we will not walk on until he is satisfied sniffing. Our house is The House of Stubborn. God knows who is more stubborn – me, my hubby, or the dog. At least he is in the right place where stubborn is an art form and appreciated as such.
