It's getting colder...

It has been getting chillier here. I have to make sure I have warm clothes on when I go to feed Rambo. I have him eat in his house now because it is too cold for him to eat outside. I will have to try to get him out for a little bit more exercise before the snow comes, because he will probably gain some weight from just sitting in his house during the winter. Figuring out what to get Rambo for Christmas is hard! I am running out of ideas for what to get him! The sweater didn't work out because he is way to big for them...maybe I will make him a big platter of fruits and vegetables!

Christmas Picture

Yesterday, my family and I took a Christmas picture to send out to friends and family. It was hilarious. In the picture we had my dad, brother, mom, our two pugs, Rambo and me. We had to take about five different pictures until we finally got a good one. Rambo and the pugs wouldn't stay still, so I had to set Cheerios on the ground for Rambo so that while we were taking the picture he wouldn't move so much. Although, we had to hurry up and take the picture before Rambo got done eating his Cheerios because he can eat them really fast. When we got a good picture taken, my mom uploaded it onto the computer and put it on one of those Christmas card backgrounds, but when she did, the picture looked blurry! My mom tried to get it as clear as she could, but it still looked a little blurry. I am hoping they turn out!

Rambo has been doing well, we have him all prepared for winter. My dad put a radio in his house so Rambo can be listening to something while he is in his house.

Labor Day Weekend

My family and I went on vacation for Labor Day, so Rambo had to stay home. We would let him come with, but he is too heavy for us to have to lift in and out of the car. We had our neighbor take care of him while we were gone. He gave Rambo some carrots. I bet Rambo enjoyed that! Tomorrow I am going back to school, so I might not have a lot of time to post, but I will try and get on and post as much as I can.

We have been letting Rambo out to get some exercise, and he always runs over to this apple tree that we have because he wants to eat all the apples that have fallen on the ground. There are tons of them on the ground right now, so I will have to go and pick some of them up. I don't want him to eat all of the apples because he might end up getting a stomach ache, and that wouldn't be good.

Very Humid

It has been very humid out the past few days. Rambo lost most of his hair again this year. Most of it will grow back once it starts to get colder out as fall approaches. I have had to make sure that Rambo has had plenty of water to drink so he can stay hydrated. Rambo also enjoys rolling in the mud so he can stay cool. I have also been leaving his roof open because otherwise it would get way to warm in there for him. It is supposed to be about 100 degrees tomorrow! Rambo will have to have a lot of water to drink!

I will post more soon!

Rambo had a bath

Rambo finally had a bath today! It was rainy and never really warm out all week, so finally my dad and I were able to give Rambo a bath. Instead of washing Rambo in his pool we usually used, my dad filled up two buckets with warm water. Then he took a cup and scooped out the water and poured it over him. I scrubbed him with the shampoo. Rambo got kind of antsy and tried to run away, but luckily he had his harness on and my dad held onto him. After rinsing off the shampoo, we dried him off and put some lotion on him. He was able to go run around outside for a bit after that and he managed to get his face all dirty!

Having time outside

Rambo has been able to spend more time outside since the weather has been so nice. Today it has been raining out and Rambo didn't really want to come out in the rain. Rambo has been eating a lot of the corn that our pastor gave us! I wasn't really sure if Rambo would like the corn or not, but he really enjoys it. I have also been filling up his busy ball and Rambo pushes that around his pen until the food is all gone. Maybe if it is nice out tomorrow, Rambo can come outside. I think he would really enjoy that.

More rain

It basically rained all day yesterday. There was a time in the afternoon when it was sunny and there was some blue sky, but then in the evening we got some storms. Rambo wasn't able to come out of his pen yesterday because it was so wet and rainy out, but maybe if it is a little nicer today, he can come out for a bit. Our pastor gave a us a huge container of corn for Rambo. Rambo really enjoys the corn, and we feed it to him quite a bit.

Rainy Day

Sorry I have not posted for awhile. I have been really busy lately. Rambo has been doing very well. A few days ago, my dad and I got Rambo's harness on and took him on his leash for a walk. Rambo isn't a very fast walker though, so my dad and I only walked a little ways down the road, and then we turned around and walked back. He has been getting outside a lot because the weather has been really nice, but today it got cloudy and rainy. It has been raining for awhile now, and I will have to go and feed Rambo soon. I will probably have him eat inside his house today because I don't think he wants to stand outside in the rain while he eats.

The snow is gone!

The snow is finally melted! I am pretty happy that it is gone because spring is finally here! Rambo has been able to get out and stretch his legs more and he is now eating his food outside instead of in his house. He is pretty happy too. :) When we come home from being in town, Rambo will be standing in his yard wagging his tail. I filled up his busy ball one day and he was so excited to be rolling it around again! He hasn't been able to use it since last summer!

Feeding Time

Rambo had a very special treat for supper tonight. Along with his potbelly pig food, he also got a head of lettuce! We had used the lettuce for tacos on Friday night, but we hadn't used it since, so we gave it to Rambo and he absolutely loved it! He ate the whole thing. Rambo also got some fresh straw in his house today too. His other straw was pretty damp so we went and bought two new bales today. When we took out the wet straw and put in the new straw, Rambo was very happy!

Rambo's friend: Baxter the Boston Terrier

Rambo got a "tweet" today from his friend: Baxter the Boston Terrier on Twitter. Baxter's Tweet read:

"My buddy RAMBO, the potbelly, had an in home mani-hoofie 2day."


-BaxtertheBoston


(Rambo's mani-hoofie was when my dad and brother trimmed his nails yesterday.)


Rambo (or my dad) replied:

"Hey Baxter & Olive, why don't you come over to my house and I will teach you how to rut with your nose! Its fun!


-Rambo


It was pretty funny! Maybe Baxter and Rambo could get together sometime!

Rambo's Pedicure

Today, while my mom and I were shopping, my dad and brother ground down Rambo's hooves. My dad says that Rambo didn't enjoy it very much but he got used to it. After they shaved his hooves, Rambo managed to knock over his food barrel. My dad and brother had to clean it all up! Once that was cleaned up, Rambo roamed around our yard and dug in the dirt for a while. Overall, I think Rambo had a pretty good day today! I wish I had been here to walk around with him. I guess I will have to go see him tomorrow!

Today's Happenings

My family and I were gone most of the day today, so I didn't get to see Rambo much today. But when I did get home, I went and fed him and refilled his water. He was pretty happy! He has a bare spot on his back end. He has dry skin and my dad thinks that he was probably itchy and rubbed some of his hair off, so we applied some lotion on it yesterday. Hopefully that will keep him moisturized. Spring is coming and I hope Rambo will be able to come outside more. He still isn't enjoying the snow very much. The temperatures are going to be warm this week, Rambo will be happy to see the snow is beginning to disappear!

Rambo's Day

Rambo didn't have a very eventful day today. I was out at a birthday party for my good friend, Bella, and then I went to see my baby cousin, Elijah. So I didn't get to see Rambo much today, but when we got home, I went and fed him, and gave him some more water and then we brought him in the house for a bit. He had fun, we gave him an orange and pet him. I think he really enjoyed himself!

Rambo enjoys music!



I took a video of Rambo one day when he came in the house because my brother started to play a little tune on the piano and Rambo kept wagging his tail non-stop! My family and I decided that Rambo enjoys listening to music because whenever he hears it, his tail will never stop wagging!

Thanks for watching the video!

Surprise!

My friend, Taylor and I planned a surprise party for my friend Bella's 14th birthday yesterday. We invited over a few friends and we had a lot of fun! Bella was not expecting it at all. Bella's little brother Aaron came downstairs because he wanted to hang out with us so badly! He had so much fun that he didn't want to help my dad feed Rambo! My brother went out to help my dad feed him though. :)

Rambo stayed in his house yesterday. I think he is still not very happy about the snow that fell on Wednesday. The temperatures are going to warm up soon, so hopefully once some of it melts, he can come outside for some exercise!

Snow Day!

I was excited when I woke up this morning because school was canceled! We had a ton of snow fall last night. My mom gave me a ruler to measure how much snow we had gotten, and I measured 6+ inches! I was pretty surprised, although I have to say, it feels strange not going to school today.

When I went to feed Rambo this morning, the snow was right up to his door so that he could hardly get out of his house. I had to shovel the snow away so he could get himself out! I felt bad for him because the snow was just starting to finally melt, and then we got a bunch more!

Rambo came in the house today

Rambo came in the house today. He had fun, he snooped around and even drank out of the dog's water bowl! I think he really enjoyed himself! He was in for about an hour and a half or so, and then he went back outside. I got a video of him last weekend when he came in, but I haven't made the video yet, so I will have to make that soon so I can post it on here. I will have to go outside and feed him soon. I bet he is waiting impatiently in his house for me to come and feed him. :)

Still really cold

It's still been really cold outside. When I went out to feed Rambo, I was so cold! Rambo is doing good, he doesn't like the cold one bit though. It is supposed to warm up a little though, so hopefully he can get outside a little bit. I cleaned out his water dish because it was a little dirty, so now he has nice, clean water.

It's warming up a little

It felt like it was warmer out yesterday! My dad and I cleaned out Rambo's house and put fresh straw in there, and Rambo got to come out of his pen. He was pretty happy! Rambo came in our house too. He even took a nap! Hopefully it will stay warmer out so he can come out of his pen more. It's supposed to get into the 40's in the afternoon! Rambo can definitely come outside today!

Cold day

It was pretty chilly out today. I went out to feed Rambo this morning, and it was cold! I was sick for a couple of days, I had a sore throat and a temperature that got up to 102. It was not very fun. I was happy to go back to school. Not much has happened these past few days. Rambo came in the house one day for a visit, I don't think he really wanted to leave when he had to go back outside! He has been getting outside more, hopefully it will start to warm up a little more soon!

Surviving the cold weather

It has been really cold out lately. Our school had to be delayed for 2 hours because it was -30 degrees out on Friday! Rambo has been doing really well in the cold weather, he never comes outside anymore because it is too cold for him. I had to put some extra straw in his house for him, and he seems to be doing well with that. My mom, brother, and I tried to take him for a walk last Monday, (we were off school that day), and Rambo didn't really want to go for a walk. So we had to throw oranges and Cheerios towards him just so he wouldn't go walking back to his house! He wasn't out for very long, and after his walk, he had to go back in his house.
