This is a pretty silly howliday. I did perform tricks for treats just like I do everyday but this time I got a little more treats than usual! I'm not complaining, it was a wonderful day! I wasn't even that good of a boy today (hehe).

But I realize that my people aren't really into halloween like most people are. They couldnt find my cowboy costume (yes!!) but they did find something else....

a wig!!!

They had one for Lady Whiskers too but of course she was nowhere to be


I hope everyone had a great halloween!

and I know I'm a bit late on this, but I've been too busy being sad about Wise Cat's passing that I haven't been up to date with what's been happening everywhere else. I just read that my dear friend and fellow pooch blogger, Gizmo has passed away =( I was very sad when I found out. I love Gizmo, Bart, and Ruby. They're one of my regular visitors and it's definitely sad knowing that a beautiful friend is no longer here. Wise Cat told me (before she went to cat paradise) that death is just a new beginning. I don't get it, but one day I will. Hopefully not anytime soon, though! But I am keeping Bart, Ruby, and their people in my doggie thoughts. I now know that losing a family member is hard. But I am thankful for getting to know this kind rottie for a short amount of time. I know he's having fun at the other side of the bridge. Probably swimming ;) Wagz and Kisses forever.

Back to Pawsting

Alfie is back...again! hehe. I keep taking little hiatuses because I've been distracted by chasing Whiskers around the house and barking at the corn man who passed by our street every afternoon. And missing Wise Cat from time to time. I'm also not sure if anyone still finds my pawsts interesting (or if they ever were BOL!) and sometimes I would just decide not to pawst because I figure it'd be boring to others anyway =P. And me and my big ears get lonely. So I keep holding it off and I search for crumbs on the floor to eat instead.


Then I remembered the reason why I started a blog in the first make memories of my life as it transformed from stinky stray to a spoiled house pet (who still stinks occasionally!). I'm decided to come back and not get distracted. I'll try to update on an almost daily basis (I said almost) like I did when I started.

Anywagz! Tomorrow is a special day I hear. It's a day called Halloween! I really don't know what it's all about but I hear that tricks and treats are involved. I love both! But then there's another part...costumes! My people didn't get a chance to get me a costume from the store but I hear theyre whippin' out my old cowboy crocheted outfit! I hope I get tons of treats for this....

I'll just hide from them...they'll never find me under my blanket heh heh heh

P.S. I miss my friend Suka! (anyone hear from him?)

Bath Time & A Milestone

*sniff sniff* you there? I smell danger...

I remember a few months ago, Wise Cat taught me a very important math equation. It goes a little something like this:

1 bottle of shampoo

Plus a sink with running water

Plus Alfie (well, me!) 

Equals...BATH TIME! (aw man!)'re not done! Then there is a towel involved and lots of massaging.

E.T. is that you??

This was my "please adopt me" face. Apparently, it worked.

*30 minutes later* All dry and clean!

oh yeah, and yesterday I hit another milestone! We had a small birthday party for one of my people person's and they invited a pawket full of family members. Well, strangers to me. It was a pretty overwhelming day as I smelled scents I've never smelled before and voices i've never heard. Let me tell ya that we rarely have visitors. My people are pretty much the only people I see on a daily basis. Humans can be scary...especially the ones that handled me in the past. At first I did my job...I barked. Then as time went by, I was able to sit in the family room with all the strangers without barking. I even let a man pet me! This is an accomplishment for a recovering former shelter dog with issues hehe.Oh yeah, and I won their hearts with my famous tricks. Works every time ;)

and I came across a sweet creature that I've never seen before...a child.

My people are always leaving the house for a bit. I dont know where they go and why they dont bring me, but I've been thinking of ways that I can stowaway.

I tried crawling into their shoes, but all I could fit in was my head. It smelled in there anyway. But then i spotted something lying on the floor of my looked big enough to store me.

*squeezes in* if i dont move or breathe, i should be okay. Wow, I've really plumped up these past few months!

well, is anybody gonna pick up their bag? I guess I accidentally went into the wrong one.

New Man in Charge

My people got me another ridiculous thing to wear! But it's autumn, so I guess it's okay. It goes well with my blue leash, collar, and harness :)

The weather has been great lately. The mornings are crisp cold while the sun shines right on you to give you warmth. But the backyard is a bit strange without Wise Cat.

I guess I'm in charge of the whole yard now. It's a big responsibility, but that's why I was given a loud, obnoxious bark! I'm on duty right now. So far nothing...just the sunshine =)

In Loving Memory of Wise Cat

I'm sad to say, that after 16 wonderful years, my best friend, Wise Cat has passed away.
Her story began on April 2, 1995. A mother cat gave birth to 5 kittens in the back of a beat-up truck. THE GIRL was a seven year old child at the time and was told that she could pick out a kitten. She chose the hairy gray one...and she's been living with my people ever since.

Gray, or as I call her, "Wise Cat", was the cat sister who i loved with all of my tiny heart. I remember the first day I was able to go outside in my new backyard. She wasnt shy to let me know who was boss. in fact, she didn't like me one bit in the beginning. This is our first pic together. she didn't even want to look at me! hehe.

but over time, she got used to me and we became buddies. she would always share her wise words, and it became routine for me to go out in the backyard and pay her a visit. This is what our backyard adventures looked like:

i'm going to miss my best friend <3
