Wheelie Wednesday!

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!

Hello Porkchop,
It's Noah's pinky here. You're very lucky to have such responsible sisters that call home every now and again.
I haven't heard a word from Noah or his sisters and they promised they'd call....hmmmm I can only imagine what is going on there.

Hey, Porkchop!

Very cool about the baby birds!

A few years ago my hooman girl left a big Christmas wreath hanging on her front door until March, and by then, she noticed a bird's nest built into it. She couldn't take that wreath down until the baby birds all learned to fly. (She didn't mind.)

For the next 2 years a bird came and built a nest in the wreath she left on her door, but this year, no nest. *sigh*

I wish they'd come back to visit.

Goober love,

Hey Porkchop...ya shoulda come, Man!!! We had a pawsome time!!
Did your mom find any of the pet mice that the girls brought home? I think they took about 20 of them...they're great for poker and some of them enjoy playin' hopscotch for some reason. Weird!

Lacie feels ur girls' pain about the thunderstorms. She detests them. We haven't had one yet, but it's not gonna be pretty round here when we do...!!!

We all got haircuts/stripped and bathed today. Thankfully, we all rolled in a large pile of deerpoop right afterward...we're back to normal now!!!

Keep watchin' those birdies, Man!
