november-2008-253-copy-smallIndi only wanted to hang out with her girlfriends this morning.  Someone loves to be the center of attention and she was allowed to lounge on a bed, something that is forbidden in her own home! I walked into the situation above and had to take a picture. Here she is in the middle of a snuggling and kissing session.

Indi Friday


Gasta Style

As Indi has grown, her little personality has also blossomed. When we first adopted her she never made eye contact unless there was food involved. Nowadays, that has changed, a lot.  As of late little miss Indi has been vocal about what she wants and the dog may not talk but she sure as hell knows how to communicate. Lately, when she wants to go out, besides sitting in front of the door, she has started pawing the door. OK! Initially, that was her request for going out. In the past week if she is outside and she wants to come inside she will once again paw the door, from the other side. OK! I am all down with this alternative communication!

Our loved spoiled dog currently has three beds: one in the living room, one in her crate, and the other at the foot of the bed next to me. This is where she has been sleeping at night for the past couple of months once the higher powers in charge blessed us with permission for the dog to enter the forbidden room.  Let me tell ya it is great! I love the fact that she is right there next to me. Of course the amusing thing is that now there is a symphony of snoring every night, in addition to the occasional sleep talker, now I also hear the occasional doggy dream blabber.

So back to the beds. I washed the covers of all of her three beds this afternoon. Once night time came around Indi started wandering around the house taking turn staring at both of us.

I was sitting in the living room minding my own business and working on the spiffy banner above. She comes and she simply stands and stares at me.

“What’s up Indi bug?” Stare.

“whatcha staring at?” Stare.

“Do you want to go out?” Tilts head slightly do the left.

“Do you want to go peepee and poopies?” Tilts head slightly to the left.

“Are you the best doggy in the world?” Stare.

“Do you want to go out?” Tilts head slightly to the left. Ohhh is there a pattern here?

“Hi good doggy!” Stare.

“Do you want to go out?” Tilts head slightly to the left. Oooh how I love to mess with this dog!

Front door magically opens and she goes out. Two minutes later she paws the door. The door magically opens again.  She plants herself in the same spot and stares at me again. Then she lets out one of her grumpy sounds. I get up and she starts walking towards the bedroom; she pokes her head in and then she looks back at me, stares.

“Ohh you want your bed! You are wondering what the hell happened to my bed? I get it!”

I put on the cover to her living room bed, she can’t wait to get on it and she steps on it while I am putting the cover on. I walk over to the other side of the living room and place it in its usual location. I come back and sit on the couch. She walks around it, then walks back and plants herself in the same spot as before and she stares at me. AHhhhhh

“Indi what is wrong? What do you need?”

I get up go over to the bed lean down and pat on it while saying: “Indi come.”

She comes over does her wild animals instict of circling before laying down and just drops down. A few minutes later she starts snoring.

Indi Friday


“Open, open now….how about now? Maybe if I strear at it long enough it will open…OPEN!!! Oh wait maybe if I paw it, it will open….”

This is what miss Indi does, she plants herself in front of the door waiting for it to magically open.  Sometimes she will use her paw while she lets out a little grunt too. It is pretty funny.

Happy Halloween Everyone!

Here is miss Indi dressed up as Pocahontas living up to her full name Indiana. She was named as an homage to Native Americans. The word Indiana in Italian means female Indian and after doing some internet research I found out that it also means land of Indians in one of the Native American languages.

And here is Charlie:

Dressed up as a cowboy.

Indi Friday

We have already established that Indi is a fantastic swimmer, this past weekend we discovered that she can play soccer too!

We took Indi once again with us to a family gathering. She had a great time playing with Lil’ P, who a year ago was very intimidated by her and did not come close. What you see in this video is a HUGE improvement. The two had a great time playing together…well Indi had a great time taking his soccer ball away!

Play close attention at what happens at what happens at around 0:48! 🙂
