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.

Training Humans

My Moomie gets SO mixed up! She's old you know, but is that really an excuse? She should be better at following instructions by her age. Do other doggies have trouble training their humans? It's been horrible weather here in Michigan today and my feet got cold. When that happened me's needed to warm them up on Moomie's belly, but when Levi---ever so politely---barked my request to Moomie, she put me outside where my feet get even colder! That happened five or six time. FINALLY, me's got her to understand that Levi needed to sleep on her lap while she did her computer work.

After awhile me's warmed up and decided to play with Mr. Froggie, my new buddy. Did you hear what happened to him? His arm accidentally got caught in my mouth and Levi had to chewed it in half. Moomie sewed him back together but his arm got shorter and put on backward. Why did she do that? Now me's have to chew it off again so she can get it on right
side up.


Levi did make some progress training Moomie, though. Every since my pawrents adopted me we've been having this back and forth argument about where my daytime bed belongs. Moomie wanted in the kitchen next to her computer desk but me would drag it into the living room a million times a day and park it in front of the deck door where there is a great view of the bird feeder. FINALLY, after five months of this Moomie got trained to leave my daybed in the living room. Me's nearly cheered out loud when she told Daady last week that she's going to buy me another daybed for the kitchen. Oh, and those branding irons and old cowboy boots of my daady's---they got moved. Something was said about chewing or knocking things over and hurting myself so Levi now has that sunny corner by the desk all to my self.

Penny drags her bed around the house to wherever she feels like sleeping and we love it, because we love to see her making decisions and thinking about things.
But...there is the little problem of things getting knocked over as she passes!

Hi, Levi...

You just have to keep at it until they learn...The humans are slow sometimes...

That's a great spot for your day bed...You have a nice sun spot...

Hi Levi!
I hate it when my toes get freezing! Good thing your mom let you cuddle with her to warm up! Your froggy friend looks silly with one short backwards arm! Maybe you should chew the other one in half too! I'm glad you got to keep your bed where you like it! It looks like a lovely spot to eat your bones!

MONA AND THE MOMMY! said...

Wow!! Froggie sure has changed but he still is very cute. I love your bed in the living room. I have a bunch of bed at my house but I like the one in the computer room so I can tell the Mommy what to say on my blog. My favorite isn't a bed but the big leather chair in front of the patio door. I sit on the back of it and watch the birds and squirells all day.

LOve ya...Mona

Hooray for your mom, finally understanding where YOUR bed is supposed to be, Levi! Sometimes humans are very slow learners...

My feet almost got frozen to the ice yesterday when I went outside. When is this freezing weather going to go away?!

the 4 Bs said...

hi Levi, we think you should train your humans to have a bed for you in every room! that way, you can always be comfy where ever you go.

woofs.
