ACHOO! Booger for you!!

Well, I've found a new side-effect of fall...sneezes!

The last few days my snozz has been a little runny and I make these odd reverse snorting sounds. I really only do it at night. Mom was worried about me and about me getting a cold or the flu (apparently there is some doggie flu going around) but we think it's just allergies to the leaves/dirt/dust I've been rolling around in.

So last night, I snuggled up in bed with her...I rolled on my back, she petted my belly then I felt my nose tickle. I knew if I sneezed it would go in mom's face, so I tried to hold it in, making a weird reverse-pig-snort sound. And what does mom do? She gets her face even closer to mine asking if I'm okay. Well, I'd be okay if you'd move so I could sneeze, woman!

I seriously tried to hold it in...I did in all honesty, but it got too tickly and I had to let it out. I figured maybe I could let out a little sneeze...


And that's when one of my boogers flew in mom's hair. It was like one of those weird slow-mo moments. I thought maybe she wouldn't notice, but apprently this booger had some weight to it.

"EWWWW!! Annabelle Walker! You just shot a booger in my hair! ACK!"

I then tried to make it better by trying to remove or lick said booger from her hair, but she got up to go to the bathroom to remove my booger. I looked over and Simon who had a look of utter disgust on his face. I admit it. It was pretty bad...and this is coming from a dog who thinks cat turds are a-la-carte.

Mom came back...gave me some stink eye but let me curl back up with her, but I had to face away from her. My nose is much better. Maybe it was the release of that one booger, but I haven't sneezed at all. Note to self, peoples do NOT like dog boogers.


  1. Oh Annabelle, you are very funny, BOL!!!! I have to say, I don't really think I've ever sneezed that hard. But if I do, I'll try to remember not in mom's face!! WOOF!!!

    lotsa licks,

  2. Hi Anna,

    Thanks for visiting my blog. I love meeting new furiends. You can never have enough right?

    I don't think I have ever sneezed, but if I ever do, I will remember what you said about hoomans not liking boogers! BOL


  3. Oh my!! Annabelle, you are hilarious!! I'm sorry you are sneezing...we are too..think it's the fall stuff blowing around. A booger in your mom's couldn't help it and I'm sure she has no problem with it (after the initial shock of it of course!!) Glad you are breathing better though!!

  4. LOL! GSD boogers shooting all over! What a funny story, Anna. Hope your sneezing episode has gone away for good now.

  5. Anna, we had the sniffles too. Sis still does a little bit. We had to go to the V-E-T and he said it is ragweed allergies, whatever that it. We are taking yucky medicine called anti-his-ta-mines. They are making us feel much better. No more snifflies and not much of that reverse sneezing stuff. We hope you get better too soon and don't have to go to the V-E-T.

  6. Ha roo roooo - that is such a funny story, Anna. We know Mom might not agree, but we did have to laugh. You could be right, maybe that booger just had to come out to make you stop sneezing.

  7. lol! oh dear... what a cute story though, even though boogers aren't so cute. I hope your sneezes go away soon, Anna!

  8. You and my little brother with your snozzy troubles.
    Cross your paws that you didn’t get that nasty H3N8 flu going around and drink lots of water. Drinking lots of water is fun and makes drooling easier. Humans don't seem to like drooling either but it's fun to do anyway!
