We have a new playmate!

Hi everybuddy! It's me, Patches! Before I introduce you to our new playmate, I wanted to show you what we got for Penny's 10th barkday. We had some yummy Pumpkin squares from Doggielicious and a big box of bone shaped treats! They were all very tasty! Not quite as tasty as THIS guy, though!
It's Rocky the skwerrel! He's waaaaay bigger than we are! Our mom bought him, at a yard sale, this morning. She said she already got her money's worth when she saw how we attacked him when he first came in the house!

I had him by the head and Poppy had him by the tail and we dragged him into the living room. He's about as easy to move as Pokey was (may he rest in peace)! Heeheehee! Mom had to throw him over to the other side of the living room with the rest of our large stuffies. We tried to drag him there, but we were knocking over end tables and our mom got really nervous when we were shaking him right beside the curio cabinets. I guess she thought we might break the glass!

Rocky is resting, right now, with Mickey, Minnie and the ginormous bear. That's only because we wore ourselves out welcoming him to Airedale Heaven. I plan to perform my secret ritual on him, later today!
I've heard a rumor that I get to go bye-byes in the car, tomorrow, with Mom! We are going down to Aunt Wendy's house and then to a park to have our pictures taken for the K-9 walk for the cure. It takes place on Sunday, March 22, but we are going to have our pictures in the Roswell, Georgia newspaper before that. I'm sooooo excited! I get to go in the Aire-mobile all by myself. Okay, not TOTALLY by myself...Mom will have to drive it!
We have some awards to post, but our mom has been too busy and too sad to do it, so we will get to them in a few days. We hope you all understand!
Note from the 3 P's: When our mom posted this, yesterday, she said Rocky is a skwerrel. Now, we know she has cat-a-rats in both eyes, but come on, Mom! He's got a STRIPED tail! Even WE know that Rocky is really a raccoon! Sorry for our Mom's "senior moment"...or brain fart...or whatever!
Patches (and Poppy & Penny too)

Wait until Khyra sees that stuffy. She will freak out. Your mom is nice to bring you such awesome toys.

Good luck on your photo shoot.

At first i thought Rocky was a mascot! He's a big one-- you'll probably have to triple team him.

Be sure to smile pretty for you pic!

have fun,

It sounds like you are going to have a wonderful time on the K-9 walk. It is great to get out on your own for a change. I always have those deaf reds with me!!!!

Now are you the fellow that "had" the blind froggie?
Not to bring that up again, but your living room looks familiar. And not to say that this ritual doesn't go on apon the said writer. The racoon deserves it! Rock ON!

Hi girls,

My Mommy has senior moments all the time too. Thanks for the info on the Brdfor pear three. I wish we had one in our back yard. Then Mommy could sit outside & look at it all the time like she does our hibiscus and that means we could stay outside lots more. I have to stay inside while she is a work allday long.

Whatever Rocky is he will be fun gutting...heehee.
