A dog's view on life

   Sep 01


I was enjoying a nice quiet moment under the bed away from all the other dogs and the fan was blowing on me. I wiggled myself in a bit farther then I normally do. ( It’s a king size bed.) I could hear that momma  Jean was getting ready to walk out the door because the other dogs were barking in the front room. I attempted to join them and found out I was stuck under the bed. I decided to call my  human to get her attention. Momma Jean heard my muffled little bark coming from the bedroom. We have a special connection of understanding each others behaviors. She knew this was not normal for me. I would be rushing the door to go along. Momma Jean found me under the bed and reached under and turned me on my side and dragged me out that way. Humiliating but it worked. Sorry no picture of the event. She was too worried about me but later she thought it was funny. (I still don’t though)  Love M.J.Mitzi Jo sad

These are pictures of my human. She saw I posted yesterday and didn’t mention what happened to her. She was buying a new low calorie/carb drink in the alcohol section of the grocery store and when checking out the clerk asked for her ID. (There is no living with her now). Was the clerk a blind person? My human is going to be 63 this month! I had her buy that shirt. It says. ” I don’t care who dies in the movie as long as the dog lives.”  She wants me to tell you she has lost just over 51 pounds and wants to loose 5 more before maintaining.  She is doing  Take Shape for Life. It uses the Medifast plan. The first picture is her before the weight loss from 2 years ago.. Love M.J.

I asked my dog friends to pose for a picture for you. That is me in the back on the left. Sorry I haven’t posted in a while but my human is getting a bit lazy about this. SHe has been working on her weight doing the Medifast food  and she has more energy so she isn’t sitting at the computer like she use to.  I am still waiting on the pictures to complete our 3rd book in print.  When it is done you will be the first to know.  Love to all  M.J.dogs in daycare shot

I know I am all about sharing but this is a bit too much. That is MY special place in daycare. It is where Momma Jean hides my treats for me to open the door and get them ( she thinks it’s cute) AND I sleep in there when the other dogs are active and noisy. Well, without asking a dog named Dude took it upon himself to settle in. I was offended by his being so forward and just retreated to my alternate cave.  The nerve of some dogs!  Love to all of YOU  M.J.DSC01327DSC01328

Thank You Ms. Elaine for taking our picture at the Pyramid House. It is a place for teens with troubles. It was too hot for a costume today but I felt they could relate to my teen gangsta look. Momma Jean doesn’t approve. She thinks it makes kids look like they don’t know how to wear a hat. ( She’s very old fashion) what do you guys think? I think I am very trendy.  That’s my sister Brandy who swiped my hat for a bit of attention for herself. Where DOES she learn that stuff? Love M.J.

mitzi on cover of Free Press 2016Words cannot express how surprised I was to see that MY picture landed on the front of our local Free Press monthly paper. I visit many local events and nursing homes in various outfits to fit the occasion and This picture won the heart of Mr Chris who publishes the paper. It was taken at the Arts Alive event in town by Miss Michele who takes pics of many local events.   I also wanted to share with you that I FINALLY got Momma Jean to join me on loosing weight. She started April 7th and has currently lost 45 pounds! That’s m0re my total weight! I will get her to pose with me for a picture real soon. Love to all.  MJ

Pet Fair EVENT

Momma Jean and ME

Momma Jean and ME     I finally got  Momma Jean to pose in a picture with me. Of course I am the only one required to wear a silly head piece. She says it’s not the BEST picture of her but since she lost 32 pounds so far she want to have a picture of us. ( She has lightened her hair since our book picture to help hide the gray hair.) There must have been something on the camera because I have a white spot by my nose. The man took 4 pictures. I looked good in all of them but Momma Jean said she looked best in this one even though there is a white spot on ME in this picture.   Love to all  M.J.

I’m very happy to say I got to go visit some of my friends at the memory care center. They loved my outfit and it’s the first time I wore this head piece. Momma Jean was surprised I didn’t try to take it off because the streamers  were hitting my ears when I moved my head. I liked it . It made me feel like I was wearing pigtails. Not REAL pig tails. It’s a hair style. I wonder why they call it that!Love M.J.IMG_20160520_140109319

Proper Eating Stance

Here are some pictures of my lookalike dog brother, Maverick demonstrating how to keep me,( ugh I mean), other dogs from stealing his food while he eats. Notice how he keeps his head low so the whole bowl is covered and then he straddles the bowl with his feet on both sides to keep me,( ugh I mean) other dogs from approaching from the rear and sides to steel his food. All I, ( ugh I mean, ) the other dogs can hope for is a distraction so Maverick will lift his head and maybe leave the bowl. I will have to think this one over a bit. Love, M.J.

cover the entire bowl with your face

Plant your feet on both sides so they can't sneak up on you

That's Me!

That’s Me!                                                        Sometime ago My Auntie Linda entered me in the Redner’s contest. They picked 5 finalist and I was very disappointed that they didn’t pick ME as a finalist. well, There must have been an oversight or something because they sent me this special reward. They put my picture on the card and then made a special tag for me to use at the store to get Purina products at a discount. That’s me in the flowered carriage on the top left and on the right. I knew I was special. It had to be that or that they are blind! Love to ALL my fans, M.J.      (This is Mitzi’s Momma Jean. Actually this was a free thing that Redners did for anyone who entered the contest but we don’t want to upset Miss Mitzi. Thank You to Auntie Linda for applying for it.)
