A new collar and a new niece!
Hi everybuddy! It's me, Patches! About a week or so ago, we won a contest on Maggie and Mitch's bloggy. We are soooooo excited! Our prize is this gorgeous handcrafted leather collar. It was made by Tim, an Amish man that Maggie and Mitch know. He is a great craftsman! His work is magnificent!
It actually fits both of us so whichever one of us is going out in public gets to wear the collar! Isn't it great? It's black leather with turquoise stones and we think it looks really nice against our black and tan furs! We think we made a great choice of colors!
It looks even better on Penny 'cause her saddle is blacker than mine, but of course, there is no picture. She's still a chicken when it comes to the flashy box!
Now, we want you all to meet our newest family member! Please meet our niece, Skeeter! She's a Beagle/Blue Tick/Shepherd mix and what a cutie! She will do a lot of travelling with her mommy and daddy and she already has her own suitcase. Her mom, Debi, is our mom's step-daughter. They live in Oh-HI-Oh, but they travel all over the country. We hope we get to meet Skeeter in dogson someday soon. If you would like to visit Skeeter, you can go to http://www.skeetersbigadventures.blogspot.com. Sorry, stoopid Vista still won't let us put in links. We tried to put one in for M & M's bloggy and it put it way down at the bottom of the page! Stoopid!
Well, that's it for today, guys. Our personal secretary has a boo-boo on her right wrist so she is typing with her left hand and only a couple of fingers on the right hand. It makes for lots of mistakes. It seems that this is a self-inflicted injury. Yep, she over-does EVERYthing! She trimmed ALL the bushes in our front and side yards and then proceeded to wax our Aire-mobile. It hadn't been waxed in a loooong time and used to stay outside all the time, so waxing it was no picnic. We finally got a bunch of stuffs out of our garage, so now Chuck the Truck can have his own home INSIDE the garage. Mom even bought a flashing "stop" sign so she knows just how far to pull into the garage without going through the wall. When she drives in, once the bumper touches it, it flashes bright red. Now, that might sound funny to you all, but one time, our dad drove his car right through the drywall! Since our mom can't see so well, she isn't taking any chances! Oh, and now that "Chuck" sleeps inside, our neighbors were freaking out. One lady was really worried because she didn't see a vehicle in our driveway for 2 whole days. She thought our mom ran away! She was really worried about US because she saw us out in our backyard, but couldn't figure out how we were getting in or out. I wonder why she didn't just call or pee-mail our mom!
