Two "interesting" days...

Thanks a lot for wishing my mom a happy birthday. She had a nice day but it had could be better if she could had the chance to stay at home with me! She had to go to work. Her co-workers celebrated her with a yummy breakfast and they watched the Spain-Portugal game. Not bad, right?

Then, in the afternoon she saw a police persecution. Lots of patrols and white trucks (known to be the ones used by the bad people here). Then the sound of bullets. Lots of them. Fortunatelly she could turn on the next street and she came home safe. We heard the sirens and the bang-bangs for about an hour. Then silence. Today morning we knew there were more than 10 persons killed. So sad. Sorry I talked about this. But it was part of my mom's birthday "celebration".

Now... on my pool

My mom came to this extreme to see if I could come into it... Nope. It did not work...


Ta-Da! A new one. Nice and soft...

And as soon as she put it on the patio I did this...

I came into the "hard" pool for the first time...

And then I went to the soft one...

And I love it!

Now, I enjoy my two pools.


And... to finish this post. Do you want to know about my sweet potatoe and chicken homemade treats?? Well.... they were thrown to the garbage! Haaaa!

As you know, I waited and waited for them but I could not stay awake for long. I went to sleep. Around 12:30 am my mom went to check them and they were ready. The sweet potatoe did not look very yummy but she thought that I was the one who had to taste them. She turned off the dehyrator. Took the treats out of it and waited until they were cool. Then she put them in plastic bags and left them on the table of my grandma's kitchen.
Next day, before going to work, my mom gave me my breakfast and then she gave me one of the treats. I tasted the chicken jerky and I liked it a lot.

Then. On thursdays, a lady comes to help my grandma to clean the house. And she thought that the content of those bags was rotten food. And she throw them away. The garbage truck came and... there they went!

Then, my mom came back from work. She looked for the bags and she could not find them. She asked to my grandma. She did not know about them. Then, she called to the lady to ask to her where she had put them. She told my grandma. And that was the end of my treats!

My mom promised me that tomorrow she will make more for me!

Have a good night

Ozzie and Rocky said...

How scary for your Mom to have to drive so close to bad stuff like gun shots on her birthday (or any day). Stay safe!
We like your two pools. That is a cool idea!
Sorry to hear that your homemade treats got thrown away. They sure sounded good, hope she makes more soon.

We're glad your mom got away from the police operation okay. Two pools! Robin Leach will be doing a "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous" on you before long!

Lorenza - hope you enjoy both your new pools!!
Too bad about your treats though:(

What a scary thing to happen on your mom's birthday.

Huffle Mawson said...

What a shame about the treats! At least your mum can make you some more. I'm glad you like the new pool.

Lacy said...

You're pretty smart how you got two pools! Do you think your mom caught on?

We're so glad your mom is okay! That doesn't sound like a fun way to spend your birthday.

Niamh said...

Poor Lorenza. All that bad stuff must have been very scary for you and your family. Glad you are all safe.

You are quite the lucky girl with two pools to cool off in. But we are very sorry to hear about the demise of all your treats.

Your friends,
Niamh & Ambrose

Martha and Bailey said...

Oh goodness, a lot in your post. First of all your mom's birthday sounds very scary.
We are sorry to learn that people have been killed and the scary police were out.
We are glad you are all safe!
The new pool! Well we never knew a dog with two pools before!
Of course you are just teasing your mom and you will love the hard pool!
We reckon you will have fun going from one to the other anyway - the new soft one looks very pretty.
Your treats - we cannot believe it!
Our mum tells us the cleaner at her work once put her reports in the bin..............she says that was worse than your treats - we actually don't agree at all!
We reckon you now need a scarecrow like our Sally to stop the birdies pecking the new pool.
love and kisses

Marg said...

That sounded pretty scary with all those people shooting.Sure glad your Mom got home all right.
That is so very smart of you to hold out about the pool and now you have two. Good job Lorenza.
We cannot believe that your treats got thrown away. That is very sad. Poor Mom.
Hope you have a good day today.

Three Dogs Long said...

Oh, that was such a scarey birthday for your Mom! Thank dawg she was able to arrive home safe and sound!

So sorry your treats got thrown away..but your wonderful Mom will make more - hopefully really soon!

Lola said...

OMD, what an experience for your Mom. Actually, it's fine with me if you want to talk about it. It's more informative to learn how real people and their doggies are affected by these things than reading about them in the newspapers. I just hope the troubles are over soon and you can be safe and peaceful.

About the treats. What a shame, but it's a good thing that there'll be more and that lady will have to be trained not to throw them out. I'm sure she'll learn quickly.

And the pools! What a smart girl you are. Now you've got two. That's furry useful in case one is out of order. Your Mom sure does love you a lot to work so hard to make sure you're comfy and have everything you could want.

wags, Lola

Matilda said...

Hi Lorenza!
Wow I love your new pool!
I hope you had new treats!

Mack said...

I am just SO glad your mom is okay after that scary ride!!!
I think the housekeeper needs a time-out for throwing away your yummy treats!!


Daisy said...

Oh, I'm sorry I missed your mom's birthday yesterday. I hope she had a good day, even though something very skerry happened.

Sorry your brand new delicious treats ended up in the trash!

Rebecca and Daisy Mae said...

What a nice new pool! We are sorry to hear about more killing in Mexico. We are glad that you are safe though! Im sure your new treats will be yummy too! I love my dehydrated sweet potato chews!

houndstooth said...

Goodness! I'm so glad your mom got home safely on her birthday. That must have been a scary moment for her!

I am glad you decided to try out your pool! BOL! At least now you have a spare if something happens to one.

Sorry about your treats! Maybe your mom can make some more.


Frankie Furter said...

You have TWO pools??? Whooooie that is grrrreeat. Sorry about your lost treats.

Sam said...

Wow, two pools! Sorry about your treats - I'm sure you can have lots more!

Please tell your Mom to be careful!


Sugar the Golden Retriever said...

Woof! Woof! Mmm police persecution??? WHY? Anyhow, glad to her you mom was able to celebrate it with a yummy breakfast n great game. LOVE your new pool ... got to find a new one for my backyard pool.

BRUTUS said...

Good idea with the pools - I tend to think mine is just a big water bowl, and will only drink out if it. Mom tried to "help" (aka toss) me in yesterday, but all that accomplished was her getting wet! Too bad about your treats - at least they turned out good enough to make a new batch!

Hi Lorenza,

You reminded me of Goldilocks who cannot decide which bed to sleep in!

Glad your mom is ok and we hope she is not tramautised by that horrible incident.


Bocci said...

Hi Lorenza,
A belated Happy Birthday to your Mom! Love those pools-Parental Unit thinks they're a great idea, although I'm not a fan of water...

Hey, I talked with the lady from Purrfect Play Pet toys, and she said that you had not contacted her about getting your organic wool ball-you do know that you won our give-a-way? The contest was way back in May.
The initial deal was that if the winner lived in the U.S. they would get free shipping, but outside of U.S. had to pay. If you give me your name and mailing address, I can make sure you get the ball sent to you-I'll strike a deal with her somehow. I want my readers to get their winnings! Please let me know if you want the ball-if not, I'll pick another winner from the comments. Here's my e-mail address:
Thanks so much!
Bocci and his Parental Unit

Two pools for you, Lorenza!... now that's a back up plan for those mean birdies. Your mom really had an eventful birthday, I must say... and sorry to hear about your treats untimely demised.

Two pools??

It must be like Beverly Hills! :)

Rambo said...

You are one lucky dawg to have two pools. I hope you enjoy them both.
That is a very scary story about the gunshots on your Mom's birthday. Did you bark at those mean humans with the guns??
Please be safe out there!!

1000 Goldens said...

We are so sorry about the bad thing that happened and hope the people with guns stay away from your neighborhood :( Lorenza, that was very sweet of you to get in the hard pool one time. Your new squishy pool looks perfect!

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

Wow, what a lucky girl - now you have two pools. Of course you went in the hard one after you got the soft one, had to be sure which one was better. Too bad about the treats - your Mom is so nice to make some more.

We are sad to hear about all that shooting and dying. We just hope you and your family are careful and stay safe.

I'm sorry about the scary things happening on your mom's birthday and so close to home! I guess at least she got to watch television at work.

I think you have made a very wise choice about your pools. You can wait there for more dehydrated yummies!

Maggie Mae said...

OMD Lorenza! What a scary time for your mom. I am happy she made it home OK. Too bad about your treats.

Lorenza! That was just so scary to read about. I am glad that you and your family are safe.

Sorry to hear about the jerky treats, but you'll get more I have no doubt.


Benny and Lily said...

Happee Birthday to mommazita.Your moms birthday sure sounds like a memorable one...
Oh Lorenza, your new pool is beautiful. I bet you could do the breast stroke, backstroke and float in there. Those treats sound yummy yum yum

Au and Target said...

Now there's a mixed bag. Two pools sounds like luxury, but your treats were thrown out which is bad. And the bad guys are winning over the police - that's bad for everyone. Stay safe Lorenzo and keep an eye on Mama.

JB's Big and Small Worlds said...

We missed your mom's birthday! We hope she had a great day!
You are making us laugh with the pool there. Did your mom really cut down all the sides on that hard one? Glad you got a new soft one too.

Twix said...

OMD! Lorenz, I sure am glad your mom made it home ok. How scary for her. I'm sorry she had to deal with that and that people lost their lives. If people would act more like us dogs then there wouldn't be stuff like that.
I think I need to take some lessons from you. You have your mom trained better than anydog I know. You were so smart to get 2 pools like that.
Love and hugs,
Twix and mom

Mayzie said...

Oh my dogness, Lorenza! I'm so very much glad that your mom is okay. Was she scared? Were you scared with all that noise? I'm so sad for all those peoples who weren't very lucky that night.

I thinks your mom must luvs you a LOT to gives you TWO pools! You're like a rich movie star or something!

Oh, and I'm sorry abouts your treats getting throwed away. :(

Madi and Mom said...

My Goodness Lorenza what a mixed bag of events you all had this weekend. We are so sorry your Mom's b-day ended with all the violence but so VERY thankful Mom got home safely.

So were you holding out for two pools!!! MOL/BOL we think maybe you like going from one to another and they have very nice pictures on them.

Hugs to you and Mom
Madi and Mom


Super cool star soft pool! You are one bathing beauty. That silly cleaning lady snatched your treat- how could she possibly think it was garbage... geesh. You only eat fine cuisine.

Life With Dogs said...

Wow do you have a lot going on. Let me just say that I'm really glad you're safe - and you cracked me up jumping into the old pool as soon as the new one arrived!

Sagira said...

That sounds scary and sad to hear that another 10 lost their lives. :(

Your new pools look like so much fun. Love he one in the shape of the star, just looks like a happy pool. :)

Teddy Bear said...

2 pools? You are living the life!:) We are so sorry about all the scary gun stuff that your Mom had to hear.:( We hope she makes more chicken jerky soon!

well, it's good to know your mom didn't walk 14 blocks for nothing. we think you should of told her that sooner though. BOL - too funny. Happy Birthday to your mom, stay safe!

The Teacher's Pets said...

What a scary time for you and your mama to hear all of that banging and stuffs! I hope you two protected each other during the night!
Aren't you fancy schmanzy to have two pools in your yard! How silly that you finally got into your hard pool as soon as you had the soft one to swim in! I think you should keep both pools just in case you have lots of furriends over furr the 4th of July so it doesn't get too crowded!
Thanks furr commenting about my embarrassing EXPRESSING MYSELF story and I barked out loud that your momma had to watch the video to help her learn how to EXPRESS your little self BUTT I think you need to buy some organic canned pumpkin to stop yourself from getting embarrassed every month at the v-e-t!

The thing with the white trucks sounds SCARY!and we are glad your mommy got home safe!

Oorvi said...


I am sorry about the treats:( but I am sure that your mom will get you better, more delicious ones:) Just the way she brought you that nice little pool.

I love that pool and I the pictures of your checking it out. Sniff it out good and proper - Make sure that there's no mouse lurking nearby - you don't want to share that bath with anybody.

Thanks for visiting and for sending your wishes...We are all back to normal now, and I think your visit helped a lot.

Licks n wags,

Happy birthday to your mom! I'm glad she is okay. You are lucky to have 2 pools. It's hot enough here we could call it a two pool day.

Oh, noooo! The dehydrated dog treats all gone? Did you know there are starving dogs in Ethiopia? Dang! I thought the pool fiasco was bad enough, now this.

miss lorenza,
that police stuff sounded very scary, and i'm glad your mama got home okay.
the soft pool looks so much more comfy cozy! i don't blame you for wanting it instead!! it's too bad you can't enjoy some chicken jerky and dried sweet potatoes poolside. i hope your mama makes you more soon!

ocmist said...

Oh, Lorenza... How AWFUL for your Mama on her birthday, but so glad she was safe. We didn't know you were in such a dangerous area. Grammy says you and your family will be in our prayers from now on about that.

That was a brilliant way to get two pools, Dear Lorenza! Sneaky... but brilliant!

What an AWFUL mistake with your treats!!! Especially the Chicken ones as they are so expensive! At least now that your Mama has that dehydrator thing, she can make you some more fairly soon! BG
