Hello to all our furry and not-so-furry friends! It's me, Patches! We are looking for a new secretary to type our blog for us. You know, it's hard for us to do it because our paws are so ginormous and we don't have thumbs. We would like to fire our current secretary because she just isn't doing a good job of keeping everydoggie informed on what we are up to!

First, we have a winner on which of us gets the new bed. It's ME (of course)! I'm the alpha around here since Poppy left us and I claimed the bed so now my old one is in the garage and the new one is in it's place. No, we aren't throwing the old one away...just waiting for warmer weather so it can be washed outside.

Actually, it has been pretty warm, here, for a while, but our mom (aka secretary) is just busy, busy, busy all the time! She keeps telling us that is a GOOD thing, but we aren't so sure! Our neighbor has a new Golden Retriever puppy and we haven't met him snooter to snooter yet! And then there's the Puggy guy's new hooman pups. They are almost 5 months old and we haven't even had a good sniff of them yet! Yes, our mom is still feeding them too. The adult hoomans...not the Puggies. Even though they have help with the pups, they work all day and then have to come home and cook dinner when they could be playing with the hooman pups!

We're sorry we haven't been around to your bloggies lately...you can blame it on our current secretary who's on thin ice! She says she's BUSY! WE say she needs to spend more time AT HOME!

We are keeping our paws crossed for the all the peeps, pups and kitties of Japan. We just can't imagine such devastation! We are also keeping our paws crossed for Joe Stains and his family! And we're hoping Butchy and Mango Major don't have anymore seizures!

Well, everydoggie, I need to go outside now so I can track in some more red Georgia clay! Our mom shampooed the carpet, this morning, so those red paw prints show up really well on the teal green carpet! I'm pretty sure our next carpet will be a rust color!

You just can't get decent staff these days can you? We seem to be suffering with the same problem!

Good luck with decorating your carpet..... hope you don't get into too much trouble.

Hi Penny and Patches, my mom and dad get busy too. They say it's so they can afford to feed us. We think that's a good thing. Better hang onto your mom. too.

Amber-Mae said...

I agree with Wyatt. Give her a raise!

Niamh said...

Our person is very slack as a secretary too. Maybe if you give her some treats she will do better.

Your friends,
Niamh & Ambrose

We know what it's like. Our secretary does good for a day or two and then it's back to her old ways - but she's old and we love her so we guess we'll keep her.

Hollie and Janie said...

Your new bed is so posh! Good lucky tracking in that mud! Mama loves all the bits of grass, leaves, and sticks I haul into the house! hehe

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

Seems we have a common problem with these hooman secretarys of ours! Oh well, gotta love 'em...the poor helpless things. Tracking in clay sounds like fun. Wish we had some here. Just cactus and rocks. Phooey!
Happy St.Paddy's Day to you!

Dexter said...

I think your mom/secretary is just fine and she totally loves airedales which makes her OK in my book. You gals be patient with her, OK?


P.S. Of course I do kind of miss your wiry faces.

Sunshade said...

Glad to see you gurrrrrrls doing so well and looking so good!

Love nibbles,

Life With Dogs said...

What a flashback - I moved away from the south in the late 70s and have never been back. I had forgotten the red clay!! Ho do you keep up?

Makes it seem like no big deal when the dogs track a little mud in here. :)

Agatha and Archie said...

Listen don't fire her.they are all the same and then if you fired her we wouldn't know ANYTHING! the bed is fabulous and looks very comfy... At least you have warm weather.. we are still patiently waiting for it!! Love and a million kisses A+A

It must be a virus. My momma has problems too. I love your new lily pad and as long as your momma posts pics once in while... we are good.

TwoSpecialWires said...

Go easy on her, Penny and Patches. We think there's an epidemic. The cure has something to do with Patience. And Trust. They come around. Eventually.

Much love. Many tail wags. And that red clay sounds like fun.
