Our mom bought a new tool to torture the real dogs! It's a Furminator. She has decided not to use it on me because my fur doesn't grow back. Penny, however, is another story. Mom used it on her and got enough hair to build another dog! Patches and Poppy have a hard time sitting still long enough to be furminated, but that crazy Penny actually LIKES it! What a weirdo doggo!
Poppy has been spending a lot of time in her bed lately. Ever since she came home from the new groomer, her Arf-ritis has been acting up a lot. She has a hard time getting up and she doesn't feel like playing too much. Mom thinks they gave her the wrong dog when she went to get her from the groomer's. She just isn't the same happy doggie that Mom dropped off. When they put her up on the grooming table, she fights it and flails her leggies all over the place. We think that's why she's hurting. Mom and Dad put her on some hip and joint care stuff, but it doesn't seem to be doing any good, so far. Don't tell Poppy, but I heard our pawrents talking about taking her to the v-e-t if she isn't back to normal soon. Penny and Patches think Poppy is just still getting used to having a new Aire-sister around that is sharing in the treats and attention. Patches has been here for 2 1/2 weeks and we would think Poppy would be used to her by now. Poppy is nice to her, but she doen't play with her like Penny does. Mom says Poppy might as well get over it, because Patches is staying!
This is Princess Patches having a little snooze in one of her favorite places...on the nice cool floor right in front of the refrigerator. Mom says her collar is a "Red Hat Lady" collar. It's red and purple. This collar was, originally, bought for Captain High Pockets and he ate a piece out of it! Dad took another collar and fixed it so it works like a Martingale collar for Patches. We don't want her slipping out of it again. Mom says she will get a new one when Patches gains her weight back. She's put on about 3 or 4 pounds since she's been here, but she still has a long way to go. She has finally quit roaming the house, at night, so all my wheelie buddies and I have resumed our nightly excursions when everydog else is sleeping!
My bear buddies in the curio cabinets have been joining us wheelies on our great adventures. We don't dare come out during the day because somedog is always around. Poppy is still sucking on the cow dog and Patches is giving her the evil eye!
Today, we are getting a new roof put on our house and we sure hope it doesn't run the Bluebirds off! There will be lots of pounding so we are expecting lots of barking! We have found out that there are three baby birdies instead of the two that our pawrents saw leave the nest. One must have flown before the other two. It's slightly bigger and has some blue developing on it's tail feathers. All 3 of the babies are showing up on the feeding table several times a day. Mason, Mena and Mitch take turns feeding them. One of them will actually get right down in the bowl of meal wormies and eat, but if one of the adults is around, the baby opens his mouth and waits for them to shove the wormies in. See all those pine needles on the floor? Well, Mena has built another nest and she dropped some of the pine needles on her way in. We think she has already laid more eggies because every time some other bird gets close to the nest, Mason runs them off.
Well, everybody, I'm already back in the china cabinet where it's safe and we are just waiting for the pounding to start. I plan on spending my day snickering at the real doggies as they bark their heads off and get in lots of trouble. See you all next Wheely Wednesday!
