This one time we think telling is the right thing

A lot of times when Mommy asks us something we don't tell her the answer. She asks, "Who peed in the dining room?" We don't tell. She asks, "Who chewed up and ruined this oven mitt?" We don't tell. She asks, "Who was sitting on the couch where you're not supposed to sit?" We don't tell. You get the picture. And we can see the benefit of not telling. Well, most of the time.

See, we think it's time to repeal the "Don't Ask Don't Tell" law (DADT). We think it's sad and very wrong that people are allowed to sacrifice in the name of freedom for our country but are not allowed to say who they are and who they love. They put their lives on the line to defend this country and our rights, but they're discriminated against and forced to make a choice to either lie about who they are or not serve in the military.

We're really hoping the President Obama follows through on his promise to repeal this law in 2010. It would really make our year. That and being allowed to roll in poop all day long.

We're so 2009, the flu is mostly from swine

It's been a very long time since our last blog post and a lot has happened in our lives since July 2008. We'll give you a brief update and will try to do better about posting.

Mommy and Daddy are still married. They did lots to our house. We have holes in the ceiling now that make the place nice and cool. Mommy seems to like it a lot and was way less cranky this summer when it was hot outside. We also got something in the back yard that we're not supposed to pee or poop on top of. It's attached to the house and people sit on it and drink beer and eat meat.

Venus got in trouble by the vet for being chubby and had to go on a weight loss plan. She has hip displasia and has to stay nice and lean to avoid contributing to the problem. She also has to get shot once a month at the vet. They stick a needle in her bum. She doesn't like it.

We had to go to camp like 4 times. That was pretty terrible.

The best thing ever is that Obama is now our President. He said he's the change we need so we're super excited to see if he'll pass a law that will let us ride Metro. Right now we have to rely on Mommy & Daddy to get around and it's really lame. I'll be 10 in December and Venus is 9. In fact, here is a photo from her birthday.

Anyway, e already stay at home all day by ourselves so we don't see why we can't use public transportation.

There's so much more to tell but I'm getting sleepy. We'll post back soon.

Venus gets a turn to be on TV

Well Jigga got to be interviewed by Mommy so I wanted to as well so I could talk about my nonprofit coalition of pit bulls who want to eat boneless babies. Take a look:

Jigga is speechless

I did an interview today Mommy to share my feedback on her organization's new website. I loved it so much that I didn't know what to say:

Happy 1st Anniversary, Daddy & Mommy!

Today is the day that Mommy and Daddy got married. Well, one year ago they got married. We were not invited. We stayed home by ourselves all day eating kibble and wondering where everyone went. Finally Grandpa & Grandma came home and they let us sleep with them.

But it's been a pretty good year. Mommy survived financial smackdown and Daddy survived Mommy's complaining about financial smackdown. We spent the year barking, peeing, pooping, eating and sleeping.

Tonight we will stay home alone while Daddy takes Mommy to dinner. We're not invited. We'll probably lay on the couch, bark at people walking past our house, and take a pee on the leg of Mommy's new dining room table. It's the least we can do to celebrate their first year of marriage.

We love you Daddy & Mommy!!

In loving memory of Turtle Face

Today we post with sad hearts. Our sister, Turtle Face, passed away on Sunday night. Turtle was sweet and playful. Her shell had beautiful designs on the top and on the bottom and she had very pretty orange spots on each side of her head. She liked to rest on her rock with her fins spread out, almost like she was sunbathing She liked to swim around and make noise with her stones. She enjoyed dirty water and eating her food pellets. She did not like lettuce or figurines of other turtles, cats, nuns, or Sweet Baby Jesus.

Turtle brought much love and joy to our family and we will miss her very much.

We love you, Turtle Face.

Before Mommy Cheats

Well, today we are really really mad because we found out that while in Phoenix visiting friends Mommy cheated on us with other furry babies. Not just like a brief pet on the street but like a full on visit with snuggles, kisses and photos. So first you should see who we're dealing with. This is Daisy and Dahlia:
As you can see, they are brown and little, which is exactly what we would be if you combined us together.

We've been trying to figure out what we could do that would send Mommy a message that this is just not ok with us. Venus overheard a song by Carrie Underpants called "Before he Cheats" and said that it really expressed the feelings she has toward Mommy right now. So, she decided to write her own lyrics to the tune of this song. We hope Mommy reads it and feels really really bad. If you don't know this song, you should first listen to it on YouTube.

"Before Mommy Cheats" by Venus Messman

Right now, she's probably cuddling with those wieners somewhere in Phoenix, Arizona.
Right now, she's probably saying, "you're wee" and playing fetch with their gooey little bone-ahs.
Right now, she's probably petting their bellies and saying she wants to take them home...
But she don't know

That we rolled in our poop real good outside
Then snuck it past Daddy and brought it inside
We rubbed it all over Mommy's favorite seat
We took a real long pee in the TV room
And chewed a hole in her favorite shoes
Maybe next time she'll think before she cheats

Right now, she's probably snuggling with their bodies that are furry and shaped like hot dogs.
Right now, she's probably saying "you're smart and you should think about starting a blog."
Right now, she's probably telling them she loves their sweet little stinky feet
Oh but she don't know

That we ate some grass and puked it up
into her favorite Kate Spade clutch
We opened all her Coke bottles so they'd go flat
We chewed the legs on the dining room table
And asked Daddy to cancel Showtime on cable

Maybe next time Mommy'll think before she cheats.
Oh, maybe next time Mommy will think.... before she cheats.
Bow wow wow wow wow wow wow wow...
