Happy New Y-Aire to all our bloggin' buddies!

Greetings, fur buddies! It's me, Patches! As we are preparing to say "Goodbye" to 2008, we are kind of looking back at this year. It has been one heck of a year for ME! In May, my mom and Aunt Wendy rescued me from a stinky motel room where I was living with a bunch of c-a-t-s and some hooman who hardly ever fed me. I was sent to see a v-e-t. He gave me all my shots and found out that I did NOT have heartworm. Woohoo! The next day, my new mom and Aunt Wendy picked me up and I came home to meet Poppy and Penny.
We had a bit of a rough start since I had never lived with other doggies before. Once I figured out that Poppy is the Alpha, things have been much better. In September, I had my fix-it surgery even though I didn't know I was broken! I healed up very quickly and was back to bitey-face in no time at all!

Now that I have entered the witness protection program and I have lived here at Airedale Heaven for about 7 months and one week, I am doing great! I have gained about 14 pounds so none of my bones stick out anymore. And boy, have I learned a LOT since I've been here! I have learned that I can't get near Penny when she's eating and when we beg at the table, there is a "pecking" order...first Penny, then Poppy and them ME! I even make sure to get out of the way so the other girls can get their treats first.


Yesterday, I even taught Mom and Aunt Wendy something. I taught them that NO ONE is going to cut my toenails! Not without a helmet and maybe some welding gloves! Actually, full body armour would be better! Mom was holding me and Aunt Wendy was trying to cut my nails, but every time she got a good grip on one of my toenails, I thrashed my head around and threatened to bite. That made Aunt Wendy lose the grip on my nail and Mom jumped out of the way. You see, my mom has dental implants in her lower jaw and she is always afraid somedoggie is going to throw their head back and break her jaw. We wouldn't do it on purpose, but you just never know!


Poppy and Penny each got all their toenails cut and then smoothed out with the Pedi Paws. They were good girls, but I am going to have to go to the vet to get my front ones done.
Poppy has an absess, on her fuzzbutt, and Mom has been doctoring it. We didn't know what it was, but since Aunt Wendy was a vet tech for many years, Mom had her look at it, yesterday. She said it was an absess, but it is draining and getting better, so Mom has decided to doctor it with hot compresses and Neosporin three times a day. It's looks quite a bit better today! If it isn't better yet, by tomorrow, Poppy will be going to the v-e-t on Friday.





Friday will be our first blogaversary and we would like to thank everyone for being our friends! It has been sooooo cool to meet other furry critters from all over the world. It's the first time in our lives when we all got barkday greetings from all different parts of the world. We have laughed with all of you and cried with all of you and we hope that 2009 only brings laughter to everydoggie, kitty, hammie, bear and hooman!
We would really like to stay up for the chat pawty, tonight, but since we get up sooooo early, and the pawty doesn't start until 10 p.m., here in Georgia, we will have to miss it. Our personal secretary will probably be sleeping by 9:30 or 10:00, so we will just lie in our beds and keep our paws crossed for Maggie. We just heard that her dad and Mitch went out in a blinding snow storm to get her some ice cream. We sure hope they made it home safely and we hope Maggie really enjoyed her ice cream. We know that ice cream fixes EVERYTHING! Here's to ice cream for EVERYDOGGIE!
Happy New Y-aire and we'll see you all in 2009!
Aire-hugs,
Poppy, Penny & Patches

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL OUR DWB FRIENDS!!!!

Hi everybuddy! It's me, Poppy! We hope all of you are having a great Christmas or Hannukah or whatever you celebrate! We got some really cool presents from Santa Paws, this year. We got Mickey and Minnie Mouse, a frog with really big eyes, a penguin and I, Poppy got a new ginormous teddy bear. I can't wait to perform my special, secret ritual on him!
Patches has already attempted an eye-ectomy on the penguin, but Mom keeps yelling at her to quit it. We have heard a nasty rumor that Pokey the gigantic lion is on his way to the basement so Mom can de-stuff him. She said something about being tired of picking up tiny styrofoam balls from the living room floor. He's FULL of those tiny things, so Mom is going to cut him open and put all of them into a big plastic bag so she can use them for packing the stuff she sells on Ebay. Poor Pokey! Mom says he's lived a long and useful life and it's time to recycle him. Besides, he's COVERED with my slobber and he doesn't fit in the washing machine.

I have tried really hard to remove one of the froggie's eyes, but so far, no luck. I will keep trying, though, when no hooman is looking!


We also got some smaller toys that we unwrapped all by ourselves. Once we had ours open, we helped Dad with some of his. It was sooooo much fun! We tried to open our own treats too, but Dad had to help us so we didn't eat them all at one time. Now, THAT would have been a great Christmas if we had 'sploded the treats all over the living room floor! Miam, Miam (as Faya would say)!



Now, I'm going to do this until our Christmas dinner is ready. Okay, I might play with the stuffies some more too! I already took one outside, this morning and Mom had to go out and rescue it. Of course, it was the one and only WHITE stuffie we got! He was kind of reddish color when Mom brought him in, so he's in the washing machine right now!
We would like to thank each and every one of you for the great cards you sent us! We have 105 and our peeple still only have 10. Heeheehee!
Merry Christmas, everydoggie, kitty, hamsterrier, bear and hooman!
Aire-hugs,
Poppy, Penny & Patches

DWB cards, award...and other impawtant stuffs!

Hi everybuddy! It's me, Patches! We are finally all done with our snail mail and e-cards. If we missed anybuddy, it wasn't intentional. Please accept this card from us to you! The three of us girls have received 82 cards and our pawrents have 3! Heeheehee! Maybe it's because we are so much cuter than they are!...or furrier...whatever!
Some time ago, we received this cool award from Kess and her mama. Thank you sooooo much! We will put it on our side bar and be very proud of it!

This is me and Poppy begging our dad for some date bar. Every year, Mom makes him one little pan of date bars. Mom doesn't eat them and they are way too hard to make in a large quantity.


This is a rare picture of Penny (with the scary eyes). She really wanted some date bar, but she was also trying to get away from the camera. What a camera chicken!



This is our teeny tiny ceramic Christmas tree. Mom puts it on an antique plant stand so Santa Paws can put all our presents under it, when he gets here. There are tiny lights on it, but we only turn it on at night time.



This is a crocheted Christmas tree that our mom made many, many years ago. Her grandma taught her to crochet when she was 9 years old. She used to crochet a lot, but since she started needle felting, she doesn't do it so much anymore. Just once in a while to make sure she still remembers how. Our mom is amazed that none of us doggies have messed with this tree. It has a styrofoam cone inside that is wrapped with polyfil. That's like a dog magnet for us! Since all our stuffies have polyfil inside them, we think anything that smells like polyfil must be for us!
I got in huge trouble on Wednesday. Mom had wrapped some Christmas presents and stacked them on a trunk at the end of the guest bed. Then, she left and went to spend the day with Aunt Wendy. Well, I guess I got bored or something and I cruised around the house looking for something to get into. Dad was in his workshop in the basement so he didn't know what we were up to. He only knew that we were quiet and we weren't making the thundering herd noises. Well, when he came upstairs, he found one of the presents unwrapped on the living room floor. I had a ripping good time with the paper, but he caught me before I destroyed the present. Lucky for me!


This is Poppy when Mom came home from the groomer's. She went to get a haircut and she got sheared like a sheep! Her hair is really short and she says she looks like a pinhead! You see, our Mom has bleached her hair for about 4 years and she has decided to let it go back to her natural color. She isn't too sure, right now, what her natural color is. It used to be blue-black, but not anymore. It's mostly gray and white, but right now, she looks like Chester Cheetah! The ends are still platinum blond, but the roots are a mixture of gray, black and white. Yep...Chester Cheetah for sure! She says she'll decide what to do with it once she finds out what color it really is!
Our Bluebirds have been coming to our deck everyday to eat! We are soooo excited! Yesterday, we had 5 of them all at one time! I, Patches, got so excited that I barked at them, but they only flew as far as the deck rail. I guess they must be used to us doggies by now!
Well, everybuddy, I'm going outside now to enjoy my poop-free back yard. Mom poopie-scooped this morning and she filled up the bucket twice! So...if you happen to be a trash collector in our town, be aware that there are 2 big bags of poop waiting for you in our trash barrell. Merry Christmas! Heeheehee! (Mom says that's not funny, but we think it's hysterical)!!
Aire-hugs,
Patches (and Poppy & Penny too!)

We just had visitors!

Greetings to all of our fellow furries and not-so-furries! It's me, Patches! Just a few minutes ago, we had some visitors. Remember our bluebirds from last spring and summer? Well four of them just came for a visit! There were 3 males and one female. Two of the males went into the bluebird house and the female stayed outside and peeked in the hole. Maybe they were looking for a warm place to sleep tonight. (It has rained for 2 days and now it is supposed to get really cold and maybe even snow!) The third male ate a mealworm from the bowl on the table and then went to the seed feeder in the back yard. They stayed around for a little while and then flew away again. We sure hope they come back soon! Mom and Dad are thrilled to know they are still around!
We would like to thank everyone who sent us a Christmas card! As of this morning, we girls have received 54 cards. Our mom and dad have received FOUR! Nanananananana! We are winning! We keep telling them that we are waaaaaaaaay more popular than they are!

Sorry we haven't been around lately. Our mom is baking Christmas cookies and she hasn't had time to help us blog much lately. She already wrapped and mailed all the presents to our relatives in Ohio, so now, she is concentrating on making sure Santa Paws shows up at our house. Usually, at this time of year, she makes like a hundred packages of cookies, but this year, she is making LOTS less! She used to make them for the man she worked for so he could give them to his customers. Now that she is unemployed, they will only be going to our vets, the mailman, maybe a neighbor and of course, Ezzy and Jagger's pawrents. So far, we haven't even had one bite of a cookie, but we keep watching closely and hoping a piece falls our way!
Well, everybuddy, we're going back to watch for the bluebirds some more!
Aire-hugs,
Patches (and Poppy & Penny too)

We missed Wheely Wednesday AGAIN!

Hello to all our fellow furry ones! It's me, Patches! I get to do the post today because I have been such a good girl that my crate has been removed from the house! Yes, I still have the big quilted blankie that was in my crate, but now I have no walls! Mom says my blankie can stay in the kitchen for a few nights, but then the bar stools go back where they were and my blankie will go into the big bedroom with Poppy & Penny. I don't know why I usually prefer to sleep in the kitchen. Maybe so I can keep an eye out for anyone who happens to get up in the middle of the night...or maybe since those other dogs sleep in the bedroom, I think it is my duty to watch out for intruders.
These next 2 pictures are yet another attempt at getting that elusive bitey-face photo. The one above is me, Patches squinting my eyes because Poppy just ran by me and bit me!

This is Poppy up close and pawsonal when she ran away after trying to bite my face off! Mom got another video of us, but of course, our stupid new computer won't open it! (Thank you, Vista!)



This is all three of us crowded around our daddy while he was carving our Thanksgiving turkey. Poppy and I can't take our eyes off Dad, but Penny thinks she saw a tiny piece fall from the sky. We actually managed to not get in any fights. I don't think anydog even Aire-snapped the other two. It was a miracle! We each got a few bites and we were very happy! We had a really great day...eating and napping, eating and napping. Oh, wait, that's what we do EVERY DAY! Along with lots of bitey-face and zoomies!
Our mom thinks she has all our DWB Christmas cards done now. We sure hope she didn't miss anyone! There were a couple of e-cards that wouldn't go through cyber space so if we missed you, we are very sorry!
We are having a very cold and ugly day today. It is supposed to be raining, but it only sprinkles once in a while. Mom wants to pick up leaves, but it's just too darn cold since she isn't wearing a fur coat like we are! Well, we just came back in from outside and we think it is about time for a nap (or maybe a snack).
Aire-hugs,
Patches (and Poppy & Penny too)

Happy Thanksgiving to all USA doggies and happy Thursday to everydog else!

Happy Thanksgiving to all of our fur buddies in the USA! Happy Thursday to everyone else! We are waiting, patiently, for our turkey dinner. Every Thanksgiving and Christmas, our mom cooks a ginormous dinner and no one comes to eat it except Mom, Dad and of course US!


Dad always asks when the company is arriving and Mom always tells him no one is coming! We live a looooong way from all of our relatives. Years and years ago, Mom and Dad went to someone else's house for Thanksgiving dinner and Mom said it didn't seem like Thanksgiving because she didn't get many of the foods that she had grown up with. The next year, she started cooking the big dinner whether anyone was coming or not.


Now, we know that you don't know our mom very well, but we want to tell you a little secret about her. She hardly ever cooks! Yep, that's right...our dad does about 90% of the cooking that goes on in our house. Mom KNOWS how to cook...she just doesn't do it very often! Our dad, on the other paw, cooks all the time! He even makes Aire-stew just for US doggies! He starts out with rice and lots of meat and puts all kinds of yummy stuff in it. We can always tell when he's cooking for us and we line up behind him when he's standing at the stove.
We are pretty sure we will be getting in some trouble this afternoon. When Dad carves the turkey, all 3 of us will be right at his feet. One of us will Aire-snap one of the other furkids and the fight will be ON! It happens every time Dad carves some kind of meat! Hey, getting in trouble for that is sooooo worth it! After all, we are MEATITARIANS! And we are each afraid that somedog else will get the first bite...or maybe somedog else will get MORE bites!
On a different subject, our DWB Christmas cards are all ready to go. Well, the snail mail ones are, anyway. They will be going in the mail tomorrow, so watch your mailboxes! Our personal secretary still has to do the e-cards. She thinks she has figured out how to do them, so watch for us in your e-mail too!
Well, every buddy, we are going back to nap and count down to turkey time!
Aire-hugs,
Poppy, Penny & Patches

Patches is in BIG trouble!

Hello, everydoggie, kitty, hamsterrier, bear and hooman! It's me, Poppy! I heard PorkChop telling all of you about our cold weather on Wednesday. Well, it's not over YET! It is only 20 degrees, here, this morning and I literally freeze my tail off every time I go outside. I heard Mom saying something about "Where the heck is Al Gore with that global warming thing when you need him?"


Do you see this look on my face? It's because I can't believe what Patches did! She is in sooooo much trouble! We have an area in our hallway where there is a seam in the carpet. Through the years, Penny's and my hooge toenails started to rip the seam, so Mom had someone come in and fix it. They did a crappy job, but at least it was better than a frayed out seam. Well, the other morning, our mom was in the 'puter room and she heard what she thought was one of us de-stuffing a stuffie. No big deal...it happens all the time. Well, when she finally came out of the 'puter room, Patches was munching on that seam in the carpet. Mom took a swat at her and missed, but then she started yelling lots of HBO words! There is no picture of the eaten area because Mom covered it up with a throw rug and she's too upset to take a picture of it. We really need new carpet, but until our mom gets another job, there will be no new carpet (or anything else).




Our mom keeps trying to get a good picture of us playing bitey face so here's yet another attempt. Since we usually have a great game of bitey face right after our 6 p.m. trip outside, Mom has decided to keep the camera right next to the chair where she does her needle felting. So far, it's working pretty well. She even got a short movie of us, but so far, stupid Vista hasn't been able to upload it. She says she will keep trying. She may have to send it to the old computer and post it from there. Once again, she's saying HBO words about the inventors of Vista. She would like to see them tazered! We told her that's pretty mean, but she doesn't seem to care!



Patches likes to lounge on the living room floor, surrounded by stuffies. I don't know if you can see them, but there are some teeny tiny white spots on the carpet right in front of the coffee table. (You may have to click on the picture to biggify it) Those are tiny styrofoam balls that somedog (ME!) shook out of Pokey the giant lion. Our mom keeps saying he isn't long for this world, but I don't know what that means. I hope it doesn't mean he's headed to the trash barrel because every night I just HAVE to perform a secret ritual on him! Mom is hoping to get a video of me doing that, but so far...no luck! I am one quick doggie!






Patches was thinking about taking a bite out of Pokey, but I snuck in and grabbed him out of her jaws of death right after our mom snapped this picture. He's MY Pokey and I don't tolerate anydog else putting their lips or teefies on him! See that white toybox in the center of this picture? Well, that was a ginormous toy box that Dad made for US! We never even got to use it because Mom claimed it for all her needle felting stuff. That is soooo unfair, but she says she needs it to keep all the wool away from us doggies. Whatever, Mom...we'll just keep all our stuffies piled up in the corner and scattered all over the house!
Last night, Mom found a spot on Patches' neck that she thought was a tick. After she was done freaking out, she got a flashlight and had Dad hold Patches so she could look at it. It wasn't a tick! It looks like maybe a Poppy bite!...or maybe a Penny bite. We aren't sure who the guilty party is, but we DO know it's not a tick and it doesn't seem to be infected. Every once in a while, when the 3 of us get really rowdy and we're doing lots of Aire-snaps, somedog squeals. When that happens, our mom yells at us, but she usually can't figure out which dog did the squealing. Patches' bite probably happened during one of our many Aire-snapping sessions.
Well, furry friends, that's about it for today!
Aire-hugs,
Poppy (and Penny & Patches too!)

Wheelie Wednesday...and we are freezing!


Happy Wheelie Wednesday everybuddy! It's me, PorkChop! The thermometer, on our deck, says it's only 17 degrees this morning. What's up with that? I thought Georgia was considered the deep south! It's not supposed to be this cold here in NOVEMBER! January or February maybe, but NOT November!

Poppy says she freezes every time she has to go outside. She just had an Aire-cut about two weeks ago, so she doesn't have as much wooliness to keep her warm as Patches and Penny have. Mom says Patches and Penny will each have one more Aire-cut and then no more until spring. Poppy is very glad she's already had her last one before the winter!


Patches has already de-stuffed 3 stuffies, this week. One of them (our big blue bear) had to go to stuffie heaven. The other two (Snoopy and Mr. Tiger) are still hanging around, but probably not for long. Snoopy has been here for over a year and although he had an eye-ectomy and nose-ectomy immediately upon moving in, he didn't start leaking stuffing until recently. Mr. Tiger will be here a year on Christmas if he lives that long. Believe it or not, he still has both eyes AND his nose! Yeah, we can't figure out how that happened either, but it's a fact! Patches has attempted the eye-ectomy many times, but so far, has been unsuccessful!



Patches decided to take a break from terrierizing the stuffies. Our mom's ginormous Eagle is watching her very closely. He knows he's safe from being de-stuffed since he is made of wood. However, we sure hope nodog decides to take a bite out of him. We have a large, decorative bird house in the foyer that is made of wood and our pawrents' first Airedale, Miss Pockets, chewed the wooden perch! Mom won't throw it out because it has sentimental value...whatever THAT is! That doesn't stop her from throwing out de-stuffed stuffies! WE think all of our stuffies have sentimental value!
Our mom wants to go outside, today and pick up leaves and pine straw with the magic picker upper thingy, but we think she might be too wimpy to go out in the cold. We told her that most of the frozen dog poopies would probably be sucked into the magic picker upper, but that isn't giving her much incentive to get dressed up like Nanook of the North and get out there. She said something about maybe addressing Christmas cards instead. She hasn't sent out cards in about four years and a lot of people probably think she fell off the face of the earth. Well, they will still have to think that because the only ones she is sending are on the DWB list! Yay, Mom! All our DWB buddies are WAY more important than all those other people anyway!
Well, everybuddy, I didn't even come out of my china cabinet to bark this to my personal secretary. I did open the door, though, so she could hear me and now I'm closing the door so I can stay nice and warm! See you all next Wheelie Wednesday!
Aire-hugs,
PorkChop (and Poppy, Penny & Patches too)

We're still here!

Hello to all of our furry and not-so-furry friends! It's me, Patches! Remember we told you that I would be getting a b-a-t-h soon? Well, it happened! I wasn't too thrilled with the whole idea...especially since I had never been in a hooman bathtub before. Mom got the bathroom all ready with the shampoo, Mane and Tail conditioner and lots of towels. Then Dad helped herd just ME into the bathroom. It wasn't easy to keep Poppy and Penny from trying to help. Mom tied my leash to the handle bar on the tub and she thought I couldn't get away. Wrong! As soon as she got me all soaped up, I jumped out of the tub and got wedged between my mom's knees. She hurried and got me back into the tub, but not before the entire bathroom (not to mention Mom's clothes) was covered in doggie shampoo. Heeheehee! I bet NEXT time, she'll take me to the groomer and pay someone else to do it! I AM nice and clean, though and I smell really good!
Poppy has been spending a lot of time checking on the plants that have been brought inside for the winter. We have a Bougainvilla that has lost all of it's pretty flowers and leaves, a ginormous Jade plant and a Squirrel Foot Fern! There are leaves and flowers all over the floor! Mom keeps cleaning them up, but they keep coming back. When the plants finally quit shedding, they will be moved to their usual wintertime places.

Here's a rare picture of me and Penny! Pay no attention to the Aire-art on the dishwasher and the coolerator. Our mom keeps cleaning it off, but it keeps magically reappearing!


Our mom keeps trying to get a picture of us playing bitey-face, but so far, this is as close as she has come! Poppy and I always seem to have somedog else's legs or face in our mouths. Penny was joining in with us, but as soon as she heard the camera turn on, she disappeared!



This is where Pokey sleeps when Mom is cleaning the living room floor. This morning, he had to get up there because Robbie the Roomba was cleaning all the Aire-hair and stuffie guts off the floor.




This is our Christmas cactus that spends the summer outside. It's blooming waaaaaay before Christmas. Jeeze, it isn't even Thanksgiving yet! At this rate, it will be all done blooming before the holidays even get here.
On Tuesday, Poppy went to the v-e-t to get an estimate for removing her lipoma. She was a very good girl at the vet's office, but she refused to get back into the Aire-mobile when they were all done. Mom had to pick her up and put her into the back. Even though Poppy has lost almost 4 pounds since her last vet visit, our mom really hurt her back! She says she isn't going to the vet with anydog alone again! Poppy is going to have to wait until our mom gets a job to have that lipoma removed. The vet said it really doesn't need to come off, but Mom wants it GONE! So....Poppy gets to wait on the lipoma surgery unless our mom wins the lottery or something!
Yesterday, our mom and Aunt Wendy spent the whole day together and when Mom came home, we sniffed her from head to toe. Not only did she smell like Ezzy and Jagger, but she also smelled like some strange doggie and even a kitty! She said that was because they went to some Humane Society and several doggie boutiques. She could have at least taken ME with her! I sure hope she bought us some Christmas presents from those doggie stores!
Well, everybuddy, I guess I'm going to do some serious napping now. It's raining here, today and none of us want to go outside at all, so we will nap in between our zoomie and bitey-face sessions.
Aire-hugs,
Patches (and Poppy & Penny too)

Wheelie Wednesday!

Hi everybuddy! We're glad you could join us for Wheelie Wednesday! Today, I PorkChop will be doing the post! I haven't been around much lately, because our mom has just been too busy to help me post. Yesterday, I watched her from my home in the china cabinet. I saw her pitch forking pine straw and picking up lots and lots of dog poopies in the back yard. Boy, I'm sure glad I don't contribute to the poopie piles out there! With three Aire-heads (or should I say Aire-BUTTS), there is a LOT of poopies to be picked up. When just Poppy and Penny were here, they seemed to keep it confined to the grass, but Patches is another story. She has been doing her stuff in the woods! Whenever our people walk in the back yard, they know they have to watch for "land mines" in the grass, but the woods was always a poopie-free zone. Well, those days are OVER!

Yesterday, somedog, who will remain nameless, caused one of our stuffies to 'splode. We don't want to name names, but her initials are PDP (Patches D Pup). She told Mom that this big red and white doggie just 'sploded all by himself! Mom wasn't buying her story!


The first clue was that there had been a stuffie avalanche! Our stuffies are usually piled up way higher than the wallpaper, but you can see that the pile has kind of sunk and what you can't see is that the rest of the living room is FULL of wayward stuffies. Just the night before, Mom had piled all the stuffies up because she was going to steam clean the carpets. Well, before she even got started, Patches pulled a stuffie out of the middle of the pile and that triggered the avalanche.



Patches and Poppy take great pleasure in running around on the wet carpet. Penny actually likes to sleep on it and our mom thinks she is crazy. She can't believe it doesn't feel really cold on Penny's skin. Maybe it's because there is so much Aire-hair between the wet carpet and her skin!




Patches is protesting that b-a-t-h thingy that she heard she is getting! She says she's just starting to smell really "doggy" and now Mom wants to take it all away. Fortunately, for her, the b-a-t-h will have to wait until our mom's back recovers from all the pitch forking!






Poppy says she's going to hide in one of the bedrooms because she thinks she might be next for the b-a-t-h! Don't worry, girls, I heard Mom say there will be more pitch forking going on today. That means at least one more day of recovery before she can give anydog a bath!






Right after our mom finished steam cleaning the bedroom carpet, all 3 Aire-goofs had to check it out! It's hard to see in this picture, but Penny is in here too! They are all really upset because their beds are all piled up on the big bed. Wait till they find out that their beds are going to be washed in the near future! They are too big to fit in the washing machine, so Mom will have to take them out onto the deck, one at a time, and hose them off. It takes about a week for each one to dry, so for quite a while, there will be ONE doggie without a bed! Poppy says it won't be her, because she bed-hops to which ever one is available!
Well, everybuddy, that's all for today. I'm going back into my china cabinet now where there is no wet floor and no chance of me having a b-a-t-h!
Aire-hugs,
PorkChop (and Poppy, Penny & Patches too)
