Patches wants me to tell you all that she still has her blind froggie. Our mom threatened to throw the frog away when we got Rocky the raccoon, but Patches cried so hard that Mom let her keep him. He has no eyes, his red heart has been torn out of one of his paws and he has a gaping hole under one arm. Mom says one more explosion from his arm pit and he's out of here whether Patches likes it or not!
This coming Sunday is the K-9 for the Cure Dog Walk and Patches has been practicing for it. Mostly, she practices by prancing around the house because she thinks she looks beautimous with her new Aire-cut! Our mom is going to register all the pawticipants and Patches will be right by her side, so she's also practicing her bitey-face games.
Yesterday, our mom and Aunt Wendy went to do a home visit for the Airedale Rescue Group and we had to stay home with Dad. They met a very nice family that has a 7 year old Aire-boy. He has lost his pack and he's very lonely, so they want to get him a playmate. Their 5 year old Aire-girl died about a year ago and their almost 15 year old Aire-boy died about 2 weeks ago. Mom says that whatever doggie goes to live with them will be very lucky. They have a 5 acre fenced yard for the Aire-kids to run and play in. We wish we could have met Chips, but at least we got to smell him on Mom. He gave her lots of kisses and smiled at her a lot! He's going to be a great brother for some lucky Aire-pup!
Well, everybuddy, that's about it for today. Right now, we're all headed back outside to see if there's anymore dog food left and maybe make the hole a little deeper. Uh oh! Maybe not...I just heard our mom say she was going to get the shovel and go out there. Bye, bye muddy hole!
