Merry Merry, Happy Happy

I'm supposed to wish good tidings for everyone at this time of year. OK, I wish good tidings to all. I'm a dog. It was cool to get extra treats & to have an extra lap to sit on while watching "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" after the Christmas dinner, but to be really honest, the best part of the day was at my own afternoon dinner when instead of just dry dog food I got yummy bits of gravy & turkey mixed in. Everyone else in the canine quarter was enthused, too.

Oh, it's too cool! A picture of MOI featured in the Editor's Collecton of Christmas pets over on Webshots. It's my famous "Santa on a lap" pic.

Of course fame will not alter my sweet, unspoiled nature. I'll still be content with my weekend trips to the donut shop, being carried through the annual Dog Walk, cheese on my breakfast food and sleeping in the middle of Dad's bed.

Projects, Projects!

Wow! Things move along quickly sometimes! Labor Day weekend Mom and Dad erected a gazebo thingy in the back yard. It's neat-o! They put down a stone floor & it has mosquito netting so you can keep the bugs out. Then just this past weekend Dad and his friend Ricky got the outside siding and trim almost all finished on the downstairs addition! I'm impressed & Mom is really pleased.

Oh, yeah, Wednesday the 6th was Mom and Dad's 19th anniversary so they took a day trip to Moody Gardens in Galveston. Boy, were they gone a long time. But I was a good boy and there were no clean-ups for Mom when they got home. Yeah, MissyLu and BJ were good, too, but they have puppy pads if they really get uncomfortable. I won't use 'em myself.

Thursday was Dad's birthday. Mom figured he'd spend the day resting & watching his M*A*S*H dvd's, but instead he made a walkway from the driveway to the gazebo. What a guy!

Dog Days of August!

Wow! Mom's really depressed on account of the continued heat and lack of rain. She gets out and waters every day, but still her plants droop and die. Only 4 days this month have officially topped out at less than 100 degrees. Most of the grass is long gone and there is little hope for the hedges along the driveway. Even the weeds are dying!

That new cat doesn't do much to cheer her up, either. It has clawed up her bedskirt, a tablecloth, and the fabric covering on the hope chest. All this in spite of several expensive playthings and a perfectly good Oak log brought in just for clawing.

MissyLu and the kitten have become great friends. They play together a lot & the kitten seems to think MissyLu makes a good substitute mom & tries to nurse on her. BJ mostly ignores Lucy (kitten) now, but occasionally I take it on myself to administer a bit of discipline. That cat just gets up my nose sometimes!

A New Addition

There's a new nuisance in our Pug lives...a kitten. Dad brought it home, but Mom and the Pugs have to deal with it. So OK, she's a cutie...but she's totally wild! MissyLu is trying to make friends, BJ is really working to restrain her natural instinct to chase and I'm mostly neutral...mostly.

That downstairs project is really moving along. Mom leaves the door open most of the day now & we can go up and down the stairs whenever we want....mostly.

Mom's happy because we've had some rain lately. She's been able to skip the daily watering routine for almost a week now. However, the rain did fill up one of her planters and she had to rescue a couple of Pentas from drowning. Her esperanza was too deeply entrenched to repot & may be a lost cause, but still the rain was a good thing...mostly.

Work, Work, Work!

Whoa! I've been out of touch for such a long time. Not my fault!!! Mom's been working on the remod. She's been painting, staining, cleaning, sorting, etc. Getting so behind on all the important stuff! But she tells me we're really going to love the extra space. Even now we get really excited when we get to go downstairs...so many new scents!! Mom says there is a "doggie door" but that we can't learn about it until she's got the fencing up. I heard her telling Dad that the cats were using it already. I love to graze in the cat food container...

Yikes...there she goes again...yard work!!!

Keep cool!
