Not "the best" play day.

Hi ya,

I'm a bit subdued at the moment. You see - I have developed an owchie below my ear, and I wouldn't leave it alone because it was itchy, so I went to the V-E-T-S on Saturday and this is the result:

Sadness personified.

Then came Monday....our puppy play-day with Scarlet and Zoe. Mum and dad dad made me keep this stoopid cone on for it and everything! But I was not the only sad one on play-day.

You see - Scarlet, Zoe and uncie arrived as usual.... then uncie had to leave because he had to go to someplace and do some website and commppuuting work. So then our place was all depressed "times three!!"

Scarlet and Zoe: Waddayamean dad dad is leaving us?????

Scarlet and Zoe:  OOOhhh woe is us!!

Not even a round of piggy ears could cheer us up! My stoopid cone meant I couldn't play bitey face!

Scarlet: Auntie.....I loves you...but I really miss my dad dad when he is not with me!!!

Scarlet: Maybe a liver treat would make me feel a little better??

Scarlet: And another beef cube????

Scarlet: Was that the front door??

Scarlet: I'll just watch the road for our car.

Scarlet:   (sigh)......where is he????? All this waiting!

Zoe: Don't worry Scarlet...... he always comes back to us! He can't bear to be apart from us either! 

Uncie did come back, and tried to explain to Scarlet and Zoe that he occasionally does have to do some work, otherwise they would be living on a park bench and starving....BOL! 

So that problem was solved.....but it does not solve my cone-head problem. I'm stuck with this until the owchie heals!   :-(


Changing the topic.........go over and meet a new blogging mini schnauzer.........Nora Bella. She is a brand new addition to her family and joins her black brother, Theo (another mini schnauzer). She literally has just arrived in the family, so check out her blog HERE and be goooing and gaaaahhhing at baby pics and new adventures.


  1. Rubie..... hope that ear heals like magic so you can get the cone of shame off your head.

    pawhugs, Max

  2. Oh Rubie, you poor sweet girl. We hope your ouchie gets better real soon. Your two cousins look so miserable too. Oh what a day. Mum says if she was there you would all have tummy aches too cause she would have filled you all up with tasty treats to cheer you up. We hope to see your happy face soon. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  3. Such sadness!!!! And the cone of shame...hope everything gets happy soon.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

    We think convolvulus might be the name of the plant. Thanks.

  4. Oh Rubie - what a sad day! You all look so down in the dumps. I can understand about the cone - I hate those things too. Hope it can soon come off and you can get back to bitey face games with Scarlet & Zoe. You mentioned about beard stains on your message to us - Judith & Leigh said it is difficult to do much about it as it's saliva that causes the staining and you would really have to keep washing and drying the beard every time you had anything to eat or drink!! Some people say the food makes a difference but we've had kibble and raw food and all good stuff but still got stains - and there are several products that say they whiten it but don't work really well. We were recommended putting a small amount of vinegar in the drinking water but I wouldn't say that did much good either :-( If we find anything that really works for us we'll let you know - love from Magic xx

  5. Oh poor dears...Aunty Tooki doesn't know what to say...I hope you are all feeling better, especially sweet Rubie. Meanwhile, I wait for a happier post from you. So sorry one of my post made your Mommi cry. I hope my newest one will bring a little smile to all of you...:)

  6. Awwwwww Rubie... what a SAD day fur SURE... Made 87 times WORSE by that horrid Cone of Shame.
    SORRY girrrrl.

  7. Hey Rubie!
    Wow, the cone of shame is an aweful thing...most of us have had to deal with it at some point. Sure hope your ear is better now. Lots of sad pooch faces.

  13. Ruh-roh - hope your ear is all better soon. I have heard those cone things are horrendous. I'd like to see a few humans I've met where one, but to do that to a dog... I mean, like, WHY???

    Boondocks & The Love Shack Pack

  14. Hi Miss Rubie! We are a new follower and look forward to being friends so please stop on by and say Hi:)

    Oh no so sorry about your ear and I hope it gets better soon, we will keep our paws crossed for you.

  15. HAte that cone thing Rubie!! Hope you feel better. MY mom needs you to e-mail us at Dcraftsalot(AT)yahoo(DOT)com
    She has a question!!

  16. Oh Rubie! I am so sorry about your ouchie! I am sending lots of healing slobbers and hope that it heals quickly! I had to wear that awful cone thing when I had my spay (and mine was 10 times bigger than yours!! I used to get stuck trying to go through doorways!) - so I know how depressed you feel with it on.

    Ohhhh....Zoe & Scarlett's faces just melted our hearts!! Those expressions!! My human, Hsin-Yi, has such a soft spot for Schnauzers you know - especially your eyebrows and your woozles! But she thinks she probably couldn't handle a fiesty, guarding type breed like you! :-) Life is still a bit easier & quieter with easy-going, lazy ME! :-)

  17. Oh no, my dear sweet Rubie, what a pity you have to wear the cone of shame - but at least it won't be long now until everything's healed up. You all look so sad sat there, we have days like that don't we - pity we weren't close by, I'd be visiting with some flowers and treats to cheer you up :-) Your very own Dex xxx

  18. Just an add-on to the previous comment I left regarding those beard stains. Some people do swear by using Apple Cider Vinegar in the drinking water (1 teaspoon to a bowlful) to keep beards and furnishings white so it might be worth a try. It didn't seem to be that great with our gang but some do find it successful :-) - Leigh (Magic's Mum)

  19. Those are some sad schnauzer faces. I hope you ear heals quickly so you can get rid of the cone of shame.

    Nubbin wiggles,


I do a Big Tail Wuggle when I get your comment!!!
