Gus and the Budweiser Clydesdales

1 1 P1340354

I gots to see the Clydesdale bud wiser horses.  I didn’t see any baby rose-bud flowers and I didn’t hear the horses say anything smart or wise when I was there.  Maybe they were just tired from pulling the wagon.  They are powerful looking.  I think I too look wise and powerful and almost the same size in this picture.  Maybe if I get bigger I can call myself, “Gus wiser.”

I am Gus.  I got to see the Clydesdale bud wiser horses.  I didn’t see and baby rose-bud flowers and I too don’t know how much smarter or wiser the horses were, they didn’t say anything.  I guess they must be what Jims calls introverts ‘cause they didn’t say anything real smart at all.  But, they were pretty.

1 1 P1340470

The bud wiser horses didn’t look that bigg to me.  He looks little in this picture and I too am little.  But he looks littler than me.  Then he gots up close.

1 1 P1340347

Nope!  Nope!  NOPE!!!  He is really bigg.  I too am little.  I hides behind Jims ’cause I don’t wants to be a squished spot in a horse pen like those other squished things.

 

I thought, “they aren’t that bigg.”  And, they didn’t look bigg until I gots close.  I said, “Nope… nope… nope!  Don’t wants to get close to them.  They have bigg, heavy bigg feets.”  Mama Becky told me to stay back because I could end up like a squished spot on the ground.

1 1 P1340379

I only gots this close to a bud wiser horse.  He was even bigg in this picture.  His picture made my ears flops ’cause I too am little and would make a tiny squish spot.

I would be a tiny squished spot, ‘cause I too am tiny.  I too don’t want to be a tiny squished spot in a horse pen.  There was some other squished stuff in their pens that didn’t look or smell very good.  Maybe it was squished Chihuahuas doggs.

1 1 P1340396

There were lots and lots of peoples at the bud wiser horse pens.  It was a bigg tent with pens ’cause they were bigg horses.

Jims told me that the Clydesdales bud wiser horses started a long time ago even before he was born.  That must have been a really, really long time ago ‘cause Jims is really, really old.  I am only six months old, so I am not old.

1 1 P1340383

This is as close as Mama Becky let me get to Barley.  I still don’t know if Barley is a boy or girl.  I looked real close on this picture, but couldn’t tell ’cause there wasn’t any sniffing opportunities.

A long time ago a man owned a beer company and couldn’t sell it ‘cause it was against the law and some people said that he couldn’t.  One of the people was a guy named Elliott Nets.  I guess he used to catch stuff with a net.  Maybe peoples who made beer.  Another man was J. Edgar Hoover.  I think he invented the vacuum cleaner or something ‘cause some peoples said he sucked at his job.  But, the beer man’s sons gave him the wagon and horses when they said he could finally make beer.  I thinks the horses and wagon was so he could ride home after the pubs closed.

1 1 P1340497

This is my selfie in front of the bigg bud wiser horses truck.  They needs a bigg truck cause they are bigg horses with bigg, bigg feets that would squish Chihuahuas doggs.  I thinks my selfies are getting better and better.  You can see why Jims will sometimes call me, “It,” ’cause he says I have, “iT” written on my forehead.  I am not, “IT!”  I am GUS!

There was a spotted Dalmatian dogg there named Barley.  I whimpered, “Hi,” and barked once, but Barley didn’t say anything back.  I don’t know if Barley was a boy or girl ‘cause we didn’t get a proper dogg-sniff introduction since Barley was in a cage like the bigg horses.  Maybe Barley eats hay too.  I too don’t like to eats hay.  I too like treats.

1 1 Barley P1340588

This is Barley dogg.  I too like Barley, but I didn’t get to talk to Barley.  I barked one time, but Mama Becky said, “No, no, Gus.  Don’t barks at Barley doggs.”

1 1 Barley and Mr William P1340515

Barley rides in around in a little car with Mr. William.  I too likes to ride in cars, but I always goes to sleep.  Barley’s car doesn’t have a top.  My car has a top and it’s not red, because doggs can’s see red, only blue.  I too would like to have a little red car… or maybe blue so I could see it.

Behind a big fence some of the horses were getting baths.  They looked like they liked their baths.  I don’t likes baths.  You gets all wet and it makes you shake.  I did a dogg blogg on taking a bath.  I too really, really don’t likes baths, especially step two.. and maybe that hair dryer thing.

1 1 P1340421

When the horses were thorough with their baths a big person would take them to their pens.  When one came through the gate I could really see how bigg they were.  I ran and hid behind Jims, ‘cause I didn’t want to be a tiny squished spot.  I too think Jims would be a tiny squished spot, ‘cause they had bigg white fuzzy feet.

1 1 P1340360

Eli and his mama, Shannon.  They are taking a selfie.  I too like selfies… and treats.

My buddy Eli went to see the bud wiser horses too.  He and his mama, Shannon, took selfies with the horses ’cause peoples could walk along and see all of them in their pens and with Barley.  They ate grass out of a bag… the bud wiser horses, not Eli and his mama.  They eat people stuff.  I too like people stuff to eat.

1 1 P1340526

This is Sandy Andy and me with his mama, Nancy, in the background.

We had a good time.  I saw the bud wiser horses, Barley and made a new friend with a terrier dogg named Sandy Andy.  He was with his mama named Nancy.  He was little too.  We both had to be careful to stay away from the horses so we wouldn’t be squishy spots on the ground.  He was nice.

I too like the bud wiser horses.  I give them three paws.  I would give them three horses hoofs except I too don’t have hoofs.  I am a Chihuahuas dogg and only have paws.

I likes to ride in the car… but I falls asleep!

I am Gus.  I too like to rides in the car.  When Mama Becky gets her purse, I runs to my dogg carrier and jumps in.  Sometimes she fools me and only gets her lipstick or pictures or phone out of her purse.  I still runs to my carrier.

z Gus at Walmart sm

I rides in my carrier when I goes to Walmart*.  I rides in the shopping cart.  Some big peoples call it a “buggy,” but I calls it a rolly-ride-thingy.  Sometimes I barks a people at Walmart*, and Mama Becky say, “No, no, Gus!  Don’t barks at people at Walmart*.”  But, Jims say, “Gus, sometimes there are big peoples at Walmart* that just need barking at.”

z Gus at Clarys 1 sm

I rides in my carrier when I go to restaurants, like when I went to Clary’s Cafe.  I too likes Clary’s ’cause they give me treats and I see other doggs eating treats there.

z Mary Horan and gus P1330164

And I rides in my carrier when I went to Cancun Restaurant and Miss Mary scratched my chin.  I too like chin scratches.  I too like Cancun and Miss Mary.  ‘Cause she brings me tortilla chips.  I too like tortilla chips.  They remind me of the old country.

z Gus n bone

Sometimes I rides in the car and chews on my great-big cow bone that Ms. Ashley gave me at Blowin Smoke BBQ.  It gives me a dogg snack… and probably will for a long, long time.

z Sleeping Gus 2 sm

But, I has a problem when I rides in the car, in my carrier, ‘cause I gets really sleepy.  I too like to sleep, almost as much as I likes treats… almost, but not quite.   And, I tries to keep my eyes open to see what’s going on…

z Sleeping Gus 1 sm

But I always falls asleep… ’cause I too like to rides in the car.

I gives riding in the car four paws, Dog printDog printDog printDog print ’cause I too really likes riding in the car.

Wags for St. Patrick’s Day

I am Gus.  I am a Chihuahuas dogg, I am not an Irish Wolfhound dogg.  But, I too like Saint Patrick’s Day ‘cause I gets to dress up like a leprechaun.  I wonder if Irish Wolfhounds dress up like leprechauns?  That would be a big leprechauns dogg!

Gus St. Patrick hat png small

This is me in my finest St. Patrick’s Day duds.  I too like my portrait.  My good buddy Morgie made this picture of me.  I too like Morgie.  I give her lots of wags and wiggles when I see her.  She pets me alot.  I too like pets… and TREATS!

Here in Savannah, Georgia we have a big, big St. Patrick’s Day celebration that sometimes lasts a week.  We have soldiers marching, important peoples waving from borrowed cars and bagpipers piping.  I too like bagpipes.

Irish Air Force pipe band

I too like bagpipes like these pipers from the Irish Air Force.  It reminds me of my puppy litter when we would all sing together.  Ooohh!  They also have drums.  I too don’t like drums!  I runs and hides.

They remind me of family singing when I was a puppy in my litter.  We would make the same noises.  Likes I said, I too like bagpipes, but I too don’t like drums.  Nope!  I really don’t like drums.

1 1 1 1 1 1 1 Cathedral sm

The parade starts at the Cathedral of St. John The Baptist on Abercorn Street then starts again somewhere else.

The St. Patrick’s Day celebration in Savannah started a long time ago in 1813 when Irish Protestants walked around town.  Now everybody who is Irish marches in the parade… but I don’t think many Irish Wolfhounds have pranced along the route.

Saint_Patrick_

This is a picture of St. Patrick.  He has a Shamrock.  I too like shamrocks and St. Patrick.

Now the parade starts at the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist and then goes to the parade beginning place on another street.  Lots of families walks along and has fun waving at the other peoples.  Some groups of firemen and policemen walk too.  Sometimes in their kilts.  I too wish I had a kilt.  I think it might make me look taller.

Police Emerald Society

This is Mr. Richard.  He was a policeman.  He has a kilt.  I too wish I had a kilt.  It might make me look taller.

This year the Vice President of our country, Mr. Pence, is walking part of the route.  So, part of the route is closed off to many things including alcohol stuff like beer and whisky.  Jims says that his Irish friends will be at another part of the parade and only his Baptist and a few Methodist friends will see the Vice President.  I wonder why?

My research on doggcestry.com says that even though I am of Chihuahuas Mexican breed descent, there could be Irish Wolfhound somewhere way, way back in my lineage.  I guess that’s why they say that everybody is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day, kind of a little like legal voters in Chicago on voting day.

Many big peoples don’t know that many Irish peoples moved from Ireland to Mexico 150 years ago and longer when lots of Irish moved to America.  There was a Governor of Spanish Texas named Hugo Oconor and other Irish-Mexican peoples, John Patrick O’Riley, Juan O’Gorman and the movie actor named Anthony Quinn.  Even Jims has relatives named Baskin, O’Neill and Donohoe.

Anthony Quinn was a famous movie actor.  He was born in Oxaca, Chihuahua, Mexico.  I too am Chihuahuas dogg.  Maybe I am related to a famous Chihuahuas big people?

So, I gives the St. Patrick’s Day parade three paws, “cause I haven’t seen one yet.  I am only four months old, but I hears that it is great!

So… That’s all I have to say about St. Patrick’s Day.  I give it three paws. Dog printDog printDog print

I too like Dr. Bink

I am Gus.  It tells stories from a doggs point of view.  That’s because I’m a dogg.  Please subscribe to my blogg so I can keep on Dogg Blogging.

I go to the doctor just like kids and big people.  My vet doctor is Dr. Bink.  He has his office in Bluffton, South Carolina, about 25 minutes from my house in Savannah.  I too like Dr. Bink.  He likes doggs and he pets and kisses me when I go to see him.  He has other kinds of animal patients, cats, rats, birds and iguanas.  I bets he don’t kiss the iguanas.  I too like hugs and pets.  I too like treats!

2 2 gus with dr binkP1330670.jpg

I gets lots of hugs and treats from Dr. Bink.

He give me treats when I see him.  He is very gentle and gives me shots.  I usually don’t even know when he does, ’cause he give me treats when he does and I don’t pay attention.  I figure treats are ahead and I don’t worries what’s behind me… like needles.  Jims tells me that is a positive attitude.  Jims said, “Gus, you really gets the point.”  I said, “Oh, I sure does, right in my backside.”

1 1 Gus gets shot from dr bink P1330720.jpg

Dr. Bink give me a shot and I don’t even know it.  Sometimes Jen gives me treats when he does and sometimes this very nice big people lady does.

Jen and other big peoples helps Dr. Bink.  Jen gives me treats too.  She put me on a very big scale and  weighed me.  I weighed seven pounds.  I have grown since my last visit.  It seems like just last month and I only weighed six pounds.  Time flies to little doggs.  Last time I got weighed was last month.  That’s why it seems so long ago.

1 1 gus on dr bink scale P1330634.jpg

Jen and the other big-peoples helpers weigh me when I visit Dr. Bink.  I am getting big… for a little dogg.

Dr. Bink takes an ear-listening thing and puts it on my to hear me on the inside.  It doesn’t even hurt.  He needs big ears like me and he wouldn’t need the ear-listening thing.

1 1 gus and dr bink P1330702.jpg

My heart is working, ’cause Dr. Bink said it was.  He listens with and ear-listening thing.

I was in very good shape according to Dr. Bink.  So he gave me another treat and we were all through with the exam.  I too like exams, especially if they gives me treats… lots of treats.

1 1 my selfie with Dr Bink P1330732

I did a selfie with Dr. Bink.  I too thinks I am getting better with a selfie camera.

After we saw Dr. Bink we drove to Beaufort, SC that is nearby to have lunch.  I will write more on that dogg-friendly restaurant later so “stay tuned,” as Mama Becky says.

Dr. Bink and his helpers gets four BIG paws.  I too like Dr. Bink… but I too, really like Dr. Bink’s dogg treats! Dog printDog printDog printDog print

Tinkerbell lives on the World’s Highest Hill.

z tinkerbell 1

This is my cousin Tinkerbell. She lives with Uncle Johnny and Aunt Lisa on The Worlds Highest Hill.

I am Gus. I gots a letter from my cousin Tinkerbell. She lives in Oklahoma with my Uncle Johnny and my Aunt Lisa. She lives in a house on the World’s Highest Hill. I too like hills if Jims or Mama Becky carries me up.

0 1 1 Road to up the highest hill in the world

This is the road to the top of The World’s Highest Hill. I would go up… if a big people would carry me. I am little.

The hill is called Cavanal Hill. A French poodle friend of mine told me that Cavanal is from the French poodle language and means caves. Uncle Johnny told Tinkerbell that there used to be lots of caves there, but they were all gone now from falling in. I too don’t like caves… or falling in. I am little. Tinkerbell, too is little. She is Chihuahuas, Maltese and some other little dogg kind.

0 2015-02-18 16.53.11

Here’s the top of Cavanal Hill close to Tinkerbell’s house.

Jims told me that a long time ago some peoples from England who do geography measured how high the hill was. They said it was 1,999 feet tall but couldn’t be called a mountain because it wasn’t 2,000 feet tall. That’s really big to a Chihuahuas dogg. I am only eleven inches tall.

Jims told me that some peoples say that the story is bull, but I knows that the bulls are down in the valley in the town. The town is called Poteau. That is French poodle language too. It means post, like a fence post or trading post. I too like posts if I can’t find a fire plug. French poodle people must have lived there a long time ago.

0 1 1 Standing Bull BYO_6633

This bull is dressed like an Indian. He lives in the Choctaw Nation where Poteau and Cavanal is. He has a map of the Indian lands in Oklahoma on his back. His is a standing bull. I wonder if he is related to Sitting Bull. I too like his spear and map. I too like Standing Bull and Sitting Bull.

The bulls are all along the streets of the town. They are painted with different colors and pictures. I too like the ones with blue on them ‘cause I’m a dog and can’t see reds. Mama Becky sees reds, especially when I have an accident on the floor. I too don’t think I wants to sees reds.

0 1 1 Bull and Cavanal BYO_6827

Here is a bull with Cavanal in the background. He looks like a cowboy bull. He needs a hat.

0 1 nerd bull at library 2 BYO_6627

This is a nerd bull. I think he lives at the library.

0 1 1 Bull and flag BYO_6785

Here is a patriotic bull. He has red, white and blue. I likes blues and whites ’cause doggs can’t see reds.

0 1 1 1 Watson Motors 2

Here is a mean looking bull. I’ll bet he sees red… like Mama Becky when I messes up the carpet. Doggs only sees blues, but Mama Becky can sees red.

Poteau and Cavanal are in eastern Oklahoma. That’s near Fort Smith in Arkansas. A few years ago Jims’ grandfather lived there. He says it was the wild west in those days. Lots of outlaws that the law would dogg. I don’t know what dogging by the law means. I guess it means wagging your tail a lot and maybe a few licks, too.

I would like to go see Tinkerbell and go up on the Highest Hill in the World. I bet you could see Dogg City Kansas from there.

I gives Tinkerbell and Cavanal and Poteau four paws. I too like all of them.

Gus: My 5 step beauty tips… The dirty secrets!

I am Gus.  I just developed my 5-step beauty tips for being beautiful… like all of the lady peoples over 60 years keeps saying to me.  Getting used to taking baths has been hard since it has been cold in Savannah this year… so here is what Mama Becky does to makes me clean.

0 1 1 1 1 P1340143 jpg

Step 1.  Gets all soapy with dogg shampoos.  I like to look at fabulous artwork during my spa visits.  It is amazings that they have this huge mural next to the dogg bathtub.

0 1 1 1 1 P1340153 jpg

Step 2.  Rinse the soaps off of your little body.

0 1 1 1 1 P1340163 jpg

Continue step 2.  Keep rinsing.  I don’t thinks I like the “keep rinsing” part ’cause I keeps getting wet.

0 1 1 1 1 P1340195 jpg

Continue step 2… AGAIN?  I know that I really don’t like getting wetter and wetter.  I am a Chihuahuas, not a lavatory retriever.

1 1 1 1 P1340224 jpg

Step 3.  Towel off.  THIS is much better than the rinsing stuffs.  I am not happy with my dogg spa and the continued step 2 stuff.

0 1 1 1 1 P1340217 jpg

Rinsing and toweling off makes my ears droops.

1 1 1 1 P1340232 jpg

Step 4.  Blow dry my dogg coat… wait a minute.  I don’t thinks I like this step… nope… nope!

1 1 1 1 P1340239 jpg

NOPE!  NOPE! NOPE!  I too don’t likes this step 4… nope, not today!  I’d rather have step 2!  Let me stay wets.

1 1 1 1 P1340334 jpg

Oh, wait… Mama Becky has a treats for me.  I too like treats.  I too like feeling clean, but I too likes treats more… and a lot more than step 4.

1 1 1 1 P1340296 jpg

Step 5.  Brush hair and looks beautiful… Eat your heart out Brads Pitts. – Love Gus

 

I gives getting baths a BIG no paws… not even one… No paws jpg

and I give blow dryers minus four paws. No paws jpgNo paws jpgNo paws jpgNo paws jpg

I would give blow drying four thumbs down except that I don’t have thumbs!

So…

If you are a little kid you can send me a drawing and I will put it up over my bed… or even if you are a big peoples… and maybe I can put your drawing on my dogg blogg.

Gus goes to Cancun… in Savannah

My peoples took me to Cancun Mexican Restaurant on the Southside of Savannah.  We went to meet Miss Nancy Jo who is a friends of Mama Becky.  Jims gave me a chips when Mama Becky wasn’t looking.  It was called Mexican food.  I too likes down-home cooking from the old country.  The chips were free with the dinner.  I too likes free chips.

1 1 Gus and Chip P1330174

Me eating a chips at Cancun Restaurant.  I too like chips.  I likes Jim sneaking them to me when Mama Becky isn’t looking.

The suns was going down and I was cold.  My ears were shaking so I asked Jims to give me some hot sauces.  Mama Becky said hot sauces was HOT and I wanted to get warm.  Jims said yes, but Mama Becky said, “NO! Bad dogg! Doggs do not eat hot sauces!”  I too like hot sauces… I thinks.  What do hot sauces taste like?

1 1 Karen Hernandez and Mary Horan and Gus P1330159

I mets Miss Karen and Miss Mary who works for Cancun Restaurant.  They likes doggs.

Miss Karen and Miss Mary greets peoples and doggs when they come to Cancun Restaurant.  They came out to see me.  I licked their hands.  Miss Marys scratched my dogg chin.  I too like Miss Karen and Miss Mary.  They were nice, but they forgot my treat.  I too like treats.

1 1 Gus, Miss Nancy Jo and Mama Becky P1330182

I like to chews Miss Nancy Jo’s curly hair.  Mama Becky made me stop.  I too likes to chew curly hair.  She and Mama Becky are really good friends.

1 1 I too likes Chips at Cancun P1330167

Jims had fajitas.  That is beefs and other stuffs.  They comes on a really hot plate and sizzles a lot.  Jims ate most of his, but held his full tummy and moaned a lot… with a smile.  I thinks he likes fajitas.  Jims slipped me some fajitas when Mama Becky wasn’t looking… the beef, not the stuffs.  I too like fajitas.

Miss Mary from Cancun likes to scratch dogg chin. I too likes chin scratches.

Mama Becky and Miss Nancy Jo had salads in a wavy bowl that they ate part of.  I can’t eats my bowl… it’s made out of shiny metal.  I know, I tried.  Mama Becky had a taco salads with chicken.  Miss Nancy Jo had a fajita salads, so I think she had part of Mama Becky’s salad and part of Jims’ fajitas.  I too like salads.  I too like chickens… I would chase them if they weren’t bigger than me.  I too would eat chickens taco salad, but Mama Becky says, “NO!  Chickens taco salads are not for doggs!”  I too like chickens taco salads… and chips… and hot sauce.  If I could eat them.

1 1 Cancun Restaurant P1330189

This is Cancun Restaurant.  I couldn’t be in this.  I was busy eating Jim’s fajitas.  I too likes fajitas.

The peoples at Cancun Mexican Restaurant were very nice.  I too likes them and fajitas.  I give them three paws, but they don’t have a place for doggs if it is raining.   I gives it three Paws.  I don’t likes rain.  I gets wet.  Dog printDog printDog print
