Welcome to The Levi and Cooper Chronicles. I'm the 'Cooper' and my baby brother is the 'Levi.' We're not siblings in the literal sense of the word. He's a miniature schnauzer and I'm a miniature poodle but our differences go far beyond our breed. You see, I'm the famous angel dog who blogs from the Rainbow Bridge. Well, not famous down on earth but up here in doggie heaven all canines get to do whatever we like and I like blogging. We dogaroons up here can also gaze down through the magic water under the bridge and keep tabs on our humans. Isn't that cool! After I discovered the magic water, I decided that little Levi---who got adopted into the family shortly after my departure from earth---could use a guardian angel. When he blogs he types in pink and when I put my two cents worth in I type in blue.

Ear Wax Snacks

My people went some place called the YMCA today. It sounds like a place where they torture humans with water and machines. They came home smelling all sweaty like they'd been chained behind a moving car and had to keep up running or die trying.

They also came home with a piece of metal that Mom put in her mouth and blew on. What a shock that was! I've been losing my hearing this past year but I could hear that whistle thing. As my mom blew in it, she did some crazy motions with her hands. Twice I went over to her to see what was going on and she praised me as if I'd done something special. Then she said to my dad, "This is going to work!" And she added that she wished it would work on him as well and he laughed. I still don't understand what that was all about. Humans are strange.

A few years ago my dad got something called hearing aids and once he took one out of his ear while talking on the phone. It smelled so good that I just had to see if it tasted as good as it smelled. I had just barely cracked the outer shell when my mom freaked out and fished the waxy treat out of my mouth. It was a long time before I got a chance to try eating one again. That time, I got to savor it for a long time and when my mom finally found what was left of it, in the corner where I hide my loot, she said it looked like a piece of chewing gum with a wire sticking out. I thought I was going to get in trouble like I did the first time, but to my surprise my dad was the one who got bawled out. Maybe my mom thought he was the one who chewed the hearing aid. I don't know, but I felt bad that Dad got in trouble for something that I did. ©

Love ya lots,

Oh-oh...good thing your dad got into trouble, and not you. Was it that good?

Sounds like the new whistle could be fun and bring some interest into your life. Your eating the hearing aid reminds me of the time when our Penny ate my sister's new dental thingy that had cost hundreds of dollars. Pity we can't insure things against being eaten by dogs!

Serves your human right to get in trouble. You were just tasting what he had in his ear to make sure it was safe right!

Oh, my, Cooper! I'm on another computer so I can't log in on my usual blog site but this is jcorn. Say Hi to your mom. I'm glad you did not swallow the hearing aid.

Well, Cooper, we're glad you didn't get in trouble! Our mom and dad used to have a mini Schnauzer that went deaf at about age 12. They used hand signals to communicate with her. Too bad they never thought of a whistle! I bet that would have worked better!

Sounds (no pun intended) like your pawents are planning on teaching you some new tricks! Scarlett has lost pretty much all of her hearing, so Pop taught her to come in from the yard by flashing the porch light. She's pretty smart. :-)

That's an expensive snack Cooper!

Oh my... hope you could get a replacement easily, I know hearing aids aren't cheap.

Cooper's mom here. Fortunately, we had insurance on the hearing aids but they have a limit on how many times they will replace an aid. So if it happens again we're on our own. My husband now gets watched like a hawk both by me and the dog. Cooper hopes he'll screw up again and put them where he snatch them again and I, of course, hope the opposite.

Sorry to hear about that mess you got into, Cooper. You have a righteous sense of right and wrong and I hope you get your owner's husband out of hot water.

I sneak at slippers any chance I can get. Yum. But the other day I discovered a certain edge of my owner's goosedown comforter. It's to die for and I shredded it something fierce. I found feathers inside and some of them flew into the air and landed on my head.

Was the hearing aid yummy? My sister LeeLee wants to know, because she chews everything! But my humans don't have anything in their ears!

Cooper here.

Oh, yes, hearing aids are tasty. I wait every day for my dad to screw up and put one within my reach again.
