Penny's flashback

Hi everydog, kittie, hammie and hooman! It's me, Penny! The guys finally showed up, yesterday morning, to build our fence. First they had to have a conference to decide how to build it.

And then, they put up some wooden posts and some steel posts and attached the fence. All of this gave me a flashback to my puppyhood. You see, I lived inside a fenced area for the first year of my life. I was a hunting dog and my main prey were bears and wild hogs.

I had my teefies on a hog, once, but when the guns fired to bring down a hog or a bear, I was terrified! I guess that's why I'm still afraid of thunder! I just don't like loud noises! Since I wasn't a very good gun dog, my breeder decided to sell me. That fence also reminded me of when my mom and dad came to pick me out of my litter. I pranced around inside of the fence and tried to look as cute as I could. I kept saying, "Pick ME". They finally did pick ME because I was so cute and I have a white blaze on my chest just like the original Pockets! I was soooooo happy! That was the day my life changed forever. All my brothers and sisters are still hunting bears and hogs, while I live in a nice house where I get all the treats I want and when it's hot outside, my house is nice and cool and when it's cold outside, I am nice and warm. I get petted a million times a day and I get lots of food and water whenever I want it! So, you see, I was also the SMARTEST dog in my litter! By acting like I was afraid of guns, I get to live the good life! I'm pretty sure all my litter mates would be jealous! Oh, yeah, and I also never saw a dog toy for the first year of my life. Now I have way too many (according to Mom) and I like the squeaky ones best! I have to share them with Poppy, but that's okay since she is such a good sister!

The guys only got the fence about 3/4 of the way done, yesterday. They will be back today if it doesn't rain or tomorrow if it does. Then we will be all ready for our new Aire-sister when Airedale Rescue finds her for us! We can't wait!

hi girls..thanks for coming to visit my blog....i just read a bunch of yours...with mom of course...and we want to tell your mom we totally understand about pockets...we just has a crazy girl we called spaz...she was some kind of terrier...and we loved her..but she got adopted just soon enough..she chewed and snapped and bit and jumped...she was like a kangaroo gone bad...we loved her..but when she got adopted it was certainly a blessing...usually we just foster baby pitbulls which are like little couch potatoes...but you still love them all....and hope for the best...i will be back to visit you...good luck with your fence....

Hi Penny,
You are one smart pup to plan that!! Hehehe.. now you have a furever home and a family who loves you... how wonderful is that!

Dexter said...

You will like your new fence. It'll keep out the hogs and bears so you don't have to worry about not being a hunter.

My Grandpa Angus used to try and go up the chimney when he heard the thunder. Momma had to give him the Valium to calm him down.

Go figure.

Thank goodness you don't have to go hunting wild boars or bears anymore Penny. That sounds very scary. We're getting a new fence very soon too. Yahoooooo.
Have a great Easter gals.
