Hi everyone! It's me, PorkChop! I get to post again since it's Wheely Wednesday!
It sure has been quiet around here since those REAL dogs, Poppy and Penny are at Asta's in New York City! I've been standing around, in my china cabinet, watching the Hummingbirds at the feeders. I sure would like to catch one of those tiny critters, but even with my wheels, I'm just not quite fast enough! They arrived on Sunday and Mom almost broke her neck when she raced down the basement steps to tell Dad. The first one to show up was a female and a few minutes later, a male came to eat. Since Dad was in the basement, he didn't get to see the first ones and they didn't come back again for a long time. By that evening, Dad thought Mom was hallucinating! He didn't believe she had actually seen any! Finally, just as it was getting dark, Dad saw one...so now, he knows Mom isn't crazy.
We also have a family of Black Capped Chickadees that are nesting in one of our bird houses. It's so exciting to watch them taking bits of stuff inside for their nest. We can't wait to hear the tiny chirps once the baby birds are born! We're really excited because this is the first time we have had a family of birds in one of our houses. We used to get birds that would move in, but the 2 cats that we had, at the time, would always scare them away. Now that Wayne and Midnight are waiting for us at the Rainbow Bridge, the birdies just might stay!
I'm hoping Poppy & Penny will be back home by tonight. They stayed an extra day, in New York for Ruby's barkday pawty! I hear that they are getting into lots of trouble with water balloons...especially the ones that Mango has put his special suds into! I hope they don't get caught by the police and I sure hope they don't fall off the balcony that Mango built! They took our mom's cell phone with them and they call, every once in a while, to let us know they are having a really good time! I wish I could have gone with them, but somedog has to stay here and guard the birdies!
See you all next Wednesday!
