We still need a new dog-secretary!

Hey, everybuddy! It's me, Patches! Yep, we're still here and still in need of a new secretary that speaks and understands Airedale-ese! We have our own language, ya know! It's not bad enough that our mom won't post for us, but 2 days ago, she disappeared for almost ALL day! First, she and Aunt Wendy came home smelling like a ginormous Japanese or Chinese Mastiff. (Can't remember which!) He was only 7 months old and and already weighs well over 200 lbs. He is going to be a biiiiiiig boy!

If that wasn't bad enough, later they came back smelling like a bunch of horses! Mom said she trimmed Aunt Wendy's horsie's mane and tail. Tipper was a good girl and stood pretty still while Mom trimmed her hairs! Normally, our mom is kind of scared of horsies because they are sooooo big and with her dental implants, she is always afraid that a big horsie could break her jaw. She wasn't afraid of Tipper at all...Tipper is so gentle and doesn't make any sudden movements. She's in a barn with lots of other therapy horsies and we sure wish we could meet them!

Well, once again, since our mom doesn't know which picture loaded first, we'll just tell you...the cake is one that our mom made with pineapple and raspberries. She force-fed it to Aunt Wendy and Unkle Bill! The other two pictures are me and Penny! I'm keeping an eye on my new stuffie leopard. He has a tendency to roll over on me when I perform my secret ritual on him! And he's sooooo big that he makes ME look small! Usually, I don't let Penny get anywhere near him, but last night, my mom told me that Penny was sleeping with her head resting on him! The NERVE of that doggie! It's a good thing I didn't see it!

Last Saturday, another huge piece of a Bradford Pear tree came down between our house and our neighbor's house. This time, we were lucky...it missed our fence and our house by about 6 inches. It did crush our Gardenia bush, but we think it will be okay. This time, our neighbor (who owns the trees) has decided to have all 3 Bradfords cut down. Normally, our mom is always against taking down healthy trees, but this time, she has to take the risk into consideration. It's just a matter of time until one of the trees damages our house or fence. We still haven't figured out why they ALWAYS fall towards OUR house instead of the owner's! We are very lucky that the tree owner is willing to cut up and haul off the broken limbs because the law says that if your neighbor's tree damages YOUR property, it's YOUR responsibility to cut up and haul-off the broken tree! (Unless the tree is dead and you have warned the owner to take it down.) We would like to bite THOSE law-makers in the butt!

Well, everybuddy, I think the rain has stopped so we need to go outside and make sure there are no skwerrels in our yard!

Patches (and Penny too)

Ditto on that cake looking yummy- wouldn't have to force feed it here. And the 4-legged's here sympathize with you completely on needing a new secretary for the blog! Have a great weekend!

Hi, Patches and Penny!
Yummilicious cake!
Aaand... more scary issues with the trees!
Glad something will be done to avoid an accident!
Those laws are not funny, right?
Take care
Kisses and hugs

Hi Penny and Patches, that's some cake. We'd like some please. That's good that your neighbor is cutting down those trees because your mom wouldn't be very happy if they fell on your house.

Just when we're about done licking ice cream outta our beards, now we're gonna have to convince Moma to bake US a cake like that. Wowzer! That looks beyond yummy! Beautiful AND oh so tempting!

Now, about those Bradford pear branches. They sound scary! We're glad a good solution is being figured out. Be safe. Stay safe. And hopefully not too many squirrels will be robbed of their homes.

What a scrumptious looking cake! Mmmmmm...would have a paw print or two on it at my house, I can tell you that!

Our trees aren't doing so well this year. The extreme heat and no rain has done a few in. I just hate to lose a good tree, too. Watch out for those limbs, will ya?
Stay safe.

Happy Tails,
William Tell
