Wheelie Wednesday...and Patches got all her shots!

Hello to all you doggies, kitties, hammies, bears, birdies and humans! It's me, PorkChop! I know, I know...I haven't posted in a while! I've been really excited lately because I have heard a rumor that I may be moving to a new home! Oh, I'll still be at Airedale Heaven...I am just moving to one of the curio cabinets in the living room. See that big crystal plate behind my tail? Well, our mom has acquired a couple more just like it and she needs to make room for them. Actually, it's fine with me to be moving to the living room. That's where the real doggies spend most of their time and I can't see them from the china cabinet in the kitchen.
Patches went to the v-e-t, this morning! No, nothing is wrong...she just had to get all her yearly shots. She was not amused when they took her temperature! She sat down so they couldn't get near her fuzz butt, but the vet tech tricked her and got the nasty thermometer in there. She was also pretty upset about them stealing some of her poop, but she felt better about it once she found out everything was okay! Mom said she was a very good girl, but she wouldn't eat the treat that Dr. Hardee gave to her. She told our mom to put it in her pocket for later.
We don't know what's up with this picture of Patches. She is foaming at the mouth and we have no idea what that thing is that's stuck to her big marshmallow nose! It must be a weed of some sort!

Here's our final installment of Mom's Peony pictures. This plant had at least a dozen blooms all at one time. It was, definitely, the prettiest of all our Peonys!
Unfortunately, our mom thought she was doing a good thing by putting stakes in the ground to hold up the blossoms. Wrong! As soon as she put the stakes in, the wind blew the Peonys over so each stem was bent right at the top of the stakes. Wouldn't you think she would have remembered that from last year? Obviously not, since she did it AGAIN!

And finally, for your viewing pleasure, we have a very rare, full face picture of Penny! When our mom went out to get the picture of the Peony, Penny was laying down on the living room floor. Mom came through the door, from the garage, and surprised Penny! Of course, by the time the stoopid flash delay thingy worked, Penny was already up and trying to run away, but Mom got her face anyway! Heeheehee!

Well, everybuddy, I am heading back into my china cabinet so I can pack up everything for my big move! Oh, yeah, and I need to rest up for Patches' big Gotcha Day and Barkday celebrations! I have heard that the pawty is at Ezzy Rider and Jagger's house on Monday (Memorial Day)! We hope to have lots of pictures!
PorkChop (and Poppy, Penny & Patches too)

That's a big move!!! Our two wheelie look-alikes, who haven't been very communicative, may be looking for better digs too. We'll see!!

Penny must be as camera-shy as Dennis -- as soon as he hears the motor on the lens work, he gets up and runs! (Of course, after some of the stuff I've posted, you can't really blame him ...)

Hi! New location.. good for you. Does mom have everything with a "P"- peonies too??? new plate and you guys! Ha.

Good job at the vet. Surprise fuzzbutt attacks are not fun but at least you got a treat out of it.

What beautiful flowies! Happy early Gotcha Day and sixth Barkday, Patches!

See ya!

Thanks for the update pork-chop! That peony sure is pretty; one of ours also fell over in the wind and so I had to clean it up, removed stem leaves and all. The rest aren't blooming yet though, hopefully they look half so good as yours.

Your mom is very sneaky, huh? But it is nice to see Penny's pretty face.

Patches looks a bit fierce with her foaming mouth.

Pork Chop. It's nice to meet you. We're new enough here that we don't remember making your acquaintance until now. We are very impressed with your picture and it sounds as if your move is going to be a pleasant one.

Mom's got a question.... where'd you get your wheels?

Your wirey friends,
Jake and (just as camera shy as Penny) Fergi

Those vet visits can be tricky things. Unfortunately we don't have the willpower to hold back the treats from the vet's from Boomer and Daisy. They are in a doggie cookie jar that "barks" when you lift off the lid! Irrestible!

Really enjoy your blog!

my mom says peony is her favourite flower and she had one of those round wire thingy usually used for tomato plants to keep the flower up.

Hey P's! Hope you enjoy your new Home Sweet Home. And the Peonies - are lovely, but not nearly as pretty as Miss Penny.

Hiya PorkChop! We hope you're going to a nice loving home. Hee! Penny, are you camera shy or something? Perhaps maybe your hoomans can cover the camera with a towel but there must be two holes big enough for the flash & the lens. That way, she may not find it too scawie.
