Dixie's views on resolutions

Hi! It's me, Dixie! I have been keeping busy with my continuing surveillance of the giant penguin. I would like to keep a written log of his behavior and activities, however, I have not mastered the use of a pencil. If I leave my post for very long to record my observations on the computer...well, I may miss something big. To pass the time I have been considering my upcoming New Year's resolutions. I figure that I'll need extra time to prepare because I have very little that needs reforming. These cats over here can wait until the last minute because they have so many bad habits to choose from. So far I have come up with these ideas: chew more stuff, chase more stuff, bark at more stuff. Aren't those great ideas? I should get back to my post for now. Your diva-Dixie

The Penguin, Part 2

Hi!  It's me, Dixie!  I look a little stressed, don't I?  I know what you are thinking.....I really do.  You are saying,"Dixie, you should be relaxing because a diva like you needs rest to be so fabulous!"   I hear ya'.  But get this....the penguin moved.  Somehow it got closer to my door.  Mommy said something about decreasing the amount of wind exposure to the penguin.  I have no idea what this means.  What I do know is that it is impossible to get around this thing without it jumping at me.  Mommy said that it's tied down and can't get me, but this is the same chick that moved my couch a couple of months ago.  I can't take her seriously, can I?  So, my beloved followers, we need a plan to eliminate a 7 foot penguin with poor fashion sense.  Your trapped diva-Dixie

Dixie's rough Wednesday

Hi!  It's me, Dixie!  I have had a tough day.  I mean, here I am with my new hairdo and nail treatment and they are expecting me to "go" outside in the rain.  Yep, I'm not even kidding.  So I have had to deal with the mud and that giant penguin all day.  You would think that would be enough, right?  Wrong.  The little boy person got his cough drop stuck in my ear fur! My freshly puffed ear was full of sticky boy spit and cherry mentho-lyptus.  So that woman (usually known as mommy) stuck me into the bath.  The bath!  Two days after the spa!  I'm gonna' go bark at nothing to annoy her now. And I think I'll chew on her purse. Ha! Your vengeful diva-Dixie

Dixie's views on giant penguins

Hi!  It's me, Dixie!  Yes, I know that I look somewhat scared today, but you would not believe what is in my yard!  This gigantic bird with a hat landed in MY yard, and he hasn't moved.  Mommy calls him a holiday penguin, whatever that means.  I've tried barking, howling, growling...all of my scariest stuff.  This dude will not budge.  He's creeping me out, especially that hat.  What is up with that?  But don't worry, I am staying on the other side of the house until he leaves.  Your Diva in Hiding-Dixie

Dixie's cool new stuff to eat

Hi!  It's me, Dixie!  I have had so much fun finding new things to eat this week.  For example, have you ever tried Cascade Dishwasher packets?  I have to say that my time with this new snack was cut short by Mommy.  She sure was grouchy, and muttered something like, "You'll get your stomach pumped, genius."  I have no idea what that means, but she must be proud of my discovery if she called me a genius.  Oh, and then I found these Equal 0 Calorie Sweetener things.  I don't know what a calorie is, but these things are yum!  Especially the blue paper!  Mom said a bad word at me for this one, but I think she was just trying to get the blue paper for herself.  Well, I am off to find more new snacks!  Wish me luck!  Your Diva-Dixie

Dixie's views on calendar selection

Hi! It's me, Dixie! I was getting a jump on my holiday shopping today online, and I realized that the perfect gift for everyone would be a Lhasa Apso Page-a-Day calendar. I mean, if there was an actual "Diva Dixie" calendar that would indeed be better, but this is the next best thing. Am I right? Well, get this....and if you are drinking a hot beverage then you should probably set it down now....there are none. That's right. But guess what they do have? Do I even have to say it? Shih Tzu calendars! Yep! Old number 70 on the dog intelligence scale has more calendars than you can count. What is up with humans and their Shih Tzu thing? Do you have any idea how many times I get mistaken for one of these things? Hello?! I happen to come from an impressive history of Tibetan watch dogs. The exact origin of the Shih Tzu is unknown. Unknown! Do you know what is known? That Lhasa Apsos rank 2 places higher on the intelligence scale. I'm just saying. Okay, back to my shopping. Your fabulous diva-Dixie

Dixie's helpful holiday tip

Hi! It's me, Dixie!  I have been really busy lately eating ladybugs so I haven't had my usual time to blog.  They are so yummy, you should definitely try some.  Anyway, I was watching the local news today and noticed that lots of humans are worried about packing on holiday weight.  I thought that I'd offer my tips for avoiding those seasonal pounds.  Well, it's one tip really, but it's a goodie.  You should really get a pen and write this down.  Here it is...give your yummies to the dog.  Don't have a dog?  Not a problem! Mail them to me, Dixie.  Make sure you label your package clearly so that my humans don't try to intercept the good stuff.  I'll eat anything, trust me.  If it doesn't agree with me then it's always fun to puke it up for mommy.  She loves that.  Now that I have lessened your holiday stress I will return to eating ladybugs and chewing on my foot.  Your Problem-Solving Diva-Dixie
