Howdy pups! It are me, Ebony Ursula! I's no longers wearing that awful blue cone on me neck! I's 'cited to stop licking me paw so Mommy said I's doesn't has to wear it. You see, I broked me dew claw & Mommy tooked me to the vet and they's told her they's had to perform a fractured nail removal & it costed her $70! Only took 20 minutes! Again, Mommy said us furs is driving her to the Poor House! Mommy said for me not worry me pretty little beady-eyed head 'bout it! She said she'd gladly shell out 'unudder $70 if it means me not being in pains. And because I was sush a good patient, Mommy bought Ceel & me a bag of treats! Yippee! She also boughts stuff for the kitties and a bag diapers for Ceel.
CEELEY: "THEY'S NOT DIAPERS!!! They's 'mergency' wee-wee pads! I's not a puppy! I's doesn't use DIAPERS!" Ceeley barks angily.
EBBY: "Now, now Ceel, comes down. You's can't helps it if you's not 100% house-broke like I'S is." Ebby barks gloatingly.
CEELEY: Barks in Ebby's face. "THEY'S NOT DIAPERS!!! THEY'S 'MERGENCY WEE-WEE PADS!!!!!
Ebby backs down. "Okay, calms down. Don't gets you's doxie body in a wad."
Anywho, I's jus' wanna let you pups knows me paw is betters.

I gots me a job pups! And I's gots it all by me-self! I's works for my cat siblings. They my 'ployers. I's they's dishwasher & theys pays me in tips. Theys tips me by leaving some of they's kibble or canned food in they's bowls!
CEELEY: "Shameful! Just shameful I's tell you! Ebbers doesn't you has no shame?! Working for them snooty purrs! Where's you's canine pride?!"
Ebby: "Ceel it are honest works! AND my tips is DELICIOUS! You's jus miffed cause they's wouldn't hire you cause you's rude to them!"
CEELEY: "Whatevers!" Ceeley prances off in a foul mood.
That's right pups, they's won't let Ceel works for them cause she barks in they's face alla times. I's on the other paw sits patiently at a proper distance and wait till they's dones eatin'. When they sets aside, I knows they's done. When they beguns washing they's faces with they's paws, that are me cue to move in and beguns 'washing' they's bowls & collect me tips. Some kitties is stingy and doesn'ts tips 'mush like the two blondes, Sunshine & Sweet-Pea, but I's still cleans they's bowls. Mos' of the times howevers, they's leaves me a kibble tip or Friskies tip. The very bes' tipper is Diamond! She are the mos' generous of alla kitties! She makes Mommy mad cause she'll lick all the gravy & leave mos' of the rest for me as tip!!!

What a day! WHAT. A. DAY!!! Poor Mommy pups! She ended up going to bed 'round 3am & wokes up at 7:o2am! She makes her coffee & takes us out to go potty, then feeds alla kitties & us. Then she starts makin' more calls and then gets her stuffs 'togedders and says 'Come girls, get in the car. We're going to the bank." She called our 'nes door neighbor, who by the way was also robbed (prolly by the same creepers)! Neighbors has a lock on theys gate so creepers unscrewed the hinges and got into the yard! They stole a generator off Neighbors truck! Neighbors wife said she noticed a car & truck very early that morning driving slowly between our two homes. She said it was suspicious enough for her to take notice but not enough for her to mention anything about it to her husband who was showering at the time. She asked Mommy what time she left for work and Mommy said 6:20am. Neighbor wife said, "Oh my God! I saw those vehicles around 6:45 or 7am!" Neighbors said they left for work a little after 7. Their truck was parked in their carport which is on the opposite side of their garage. They took their car to work (its in the garage) so they didn't notice if the generator was on the truck or not. Neighbor said he returned to his house at 11am in his big dump truck (they owns a landscaping supply business). He parked the truck 'tween our homes & left it running while he went to unlock his gate and thats when he noticed he'd been robbed.
Anywho, back to what I's barkin' bout: Mommy called Neighbor to let him know she'd be gone for a short while and if he could keep an eye out on our place. At the bank Mommy closed all the 'counts that was stolen & opened new ones. Then she drove to 'nudder bank & did the same thing there. She are still not dones! Monday she's gotta call 'bout her 'passyport & social 'scurity card and so on and so on! It are a mess and Mommy is on edge cause she's frightened about 'dentity 'thef. She's read & heard horror stories 'bout it.
Mommy are surprised creepers didn't steal her pitcher box. They 'ashley took it outta the drawer it was in. Then they found the cardboard box it came in when Mommy bought it (box was unner da bed), put the camera in the box then left the box sitting on the floor in the middle of the room! It are like they got spooked, ran out & forgot the camera. Oh, creepers also ripped the cover off one of our doggy beds that was in the bedroom! What kinda low-life rips a doggy's bed! Mommy thinks it are cuz theys though she might hide moneys there.

When Mommy arrived home this evening, she was in for a shock pups!!! She opened the front door and only Ceel was there to greets her. That's odd she thought cause Ceel & me ALWAYS greets Mommy at the door togethers. Usually I gets to the door first but we's always there to greets her. Well, when she don't see me she thought how odd and she called me name...no answer...called me again...no answer. Mommy gots worried. Her bedroom door was open...(she'd left it closed). Outta the corner of her eye, saw a small dresser drawer on the floor in her bedroom and she panicked cause she thought somehow it musta fallen & maybe it fell on me! She rushed into the bedroom & saw alla drawers had been pulled open, the bed had been undone & the mattress had bee moved. Still no sign of me. Mommy realized we been robbed! She walked in the living room & noticed the tv was gone."WHERE'S MY EBBY!!!!" was here biggest concern. Finally she hears the scratches at the door of the spare bedroom. The evil humans who robbed us locked me in the spare room with my cat sister Diamond!!! Ceel was left alla lones in the living room! Mommy knows we's musta tried our best to defend our home. She knows how we's is and said she can just imagine how we musta barked & maybe even tried to nip some ankles. But we's little and no match for those thieving creeps (or creep)! Mommy said they better not have kicked 'round. (We'll never tell...we don't wanna upset Mommy more.) The creeps broke in through the back door. They musta been a rush cause all they took was the tv which Mommy is not very upset over but what has her very worried is that they took her Brinks box that contained all her 'portant documents. (Passport, social security card, credit cards, some bank papers...everything that matters!) Mommy called the police & they came & dusted or fingerprints but found none. She's cancelled her cards & reported the robbery to Equifax for identity theft. Since her bank was closed she gotta wait till tomarrow to call them and wait till Monday to call 'bout her SS card & passport & other stuffs! Mommy's so upset pups! Ceel & me seened who did it but we's can't speak human so we's can't helps...sniff, sniff. Please pray these bad peoples doesn'ts steal Mommy's 'denity! Well it are 2:05 am and Mommy gonna try to get some sleeps. Want a mess! Will try to writes more 'bout this tomarrows. Please keep us in you's pawrayers pups.

In memory of our dear pal Abby:
WHEN TOMORROW STARTS WITHOUT ME,
And I'm not there to see;
The sun will rise and find your eyes
All filled with tears for me.
I wish so much you wouldn't cry
The way you did today,
Remembering how I'd lay my head
In your lap that special way.
I know how much you love me,
As much as I love you,
And each time that you think of me,
I know you'll miss me too.
But when tomorrow starts without me.
Please try to understand,
That an angel came and called my name
And petted me with her hand.
She said my place was ready,
In Heaven far above,
And that I'd have to leave behind
All those I dearly love.
But, as I turned to heel away,
A tear fell from my eye,
For all my life I never thought
That I would have to die.
I had so much to live for,
So many sits and downs to do,
It seemed almost impossible,
That I was leaving you.
I thought about our lives together,
I know you must be sad,
I thought of all the love we shared,
And all the fun we had.
Remember how I'd nudge your hand,
And poke you with my nose?
The frisbee I would gladly chase,
The bad guy, I'd "bark and hold".
If I could relive yesterday,
Just even for awhile,
I'd wag my tail and kiss you,
Just so I could see you smile.
But then I fully realized,
That this could never be;
For emptiness and memories
Will take the place of me.
And when I thought of treats and toys,
I might miss come tomorrow,
I thought of you and when I did,
My dog-heart filled with sorrow.
But then I walked through Heaven's gate,
And felt so much at home;
As God looked down and smiled at me,
From His beautiful golden throne.
He said, “This is eternity,
And now we welcome you,
Today your life on earth is past,
But here it starts anew.
I promise no tomorrow,
But today will always last;
For you see, each day's the same day,
There's no longing for the past.
Now you have been so faithful,
So trusting, loyal and true;
Though there were times you did things,
You knew you shouldn't do.
But good dogs are forgiven,
And now at last you're free;
So won't you sit here by my side,
And wait right here with me?”
So when tomorrow starts without me,
Don't think we're far apart.
For every time you think of me,
I'm right there, in your heart.

Well, well, seems like me bark-n-tell cousin, Ceel, has been barking 'bout me agains in her diary! Now I's 'mit I's took her steak, but the only reason I's does it is cause I's wanted it! It are DELISH!!! Does I's feel bad 'bout what I's does, you's ask? Somewhats, but not really. 'Least I's honest 'bout it! Now alla ya'lls knows I's sharing-challenged so I can't helps me-self. It are a medical condition so I's shouldn't be blamed for nuttin'! Besides, Ceel are no angel herself! She also has sharing issues.
For 'esample, she always hogs the bed when we goes to PawPaw's. When we stays over theres, Mommy pulls out an 'esercise mat for us to sleeps on. She knows Ceel likes to cover herself when she sleeps so Mommy gave her a blankie. She gave me a blankie too because I likes to 'nest on top of my blankie. Well, when it are times to go night-night, I's couldn't! I paced back & forth trying get Mommy's 'tention. "What's wrong Ebby? You wanna go potty?" she asked. She tried taking me to the front door but I's wouldn't follow her. I just sat there in the middle of the room pouting. "What is it Ebby? What are you trying to tell me?" she asked. I paced back to our sleeping quarters and then looked up at Mommy with me pouty face. Ceel was fast asleep.
Mommy burst out laughing! Ceel had taken MY blankie, pulled it her side & laid on top of it! Then she'd used HER blankie to cover herself! I's left with no blankie to 'nest on! "Awhhh....don't worry Ebby," said Mommy, "I'll go get you another blanket." She giggles as she go to look for another blankie. Well I's doesn'ts find it 'musing at all!

July is Mommy's least favorite month. It has too many sad memories. Mommy lost her Mommy on July 17, 2004. Then we said goodbye to Wrinkles on July 22, 2010. Now, another beloved family fur has left another hole in our hearts. On Tuesday July 24, Paw-paw's 17 year-old kitty, Miss Molly was put to rest.
We were at ranch since Monday and Molly was her ole' self that evening. Mommy let her inside so she could eat & drink. After Mommy brushed her, Molly meowed to be let outside (during the summer months she refuses to sleep inside). We did not notice anything out of the ordinary. She even gave Goose (Paw-paw's doxie) a swat on the butt with her paw as was her custom. Goose & Molly was BFF's.
The following day at noon, Paw-paw walks in with Molly in his arms. He found her in a nearby storage shed unable to stand. He gently laid her down on an old blanket in the laundry room. Goose jumped off the couch and ran over to her. Ceel & me followed. Goose whimpered a little as he tried sniffing her up & down. Mommy had to pick him up and carry him away cause he wouldn't leave her. It was so sad. Molly had some blood coming out of her nose and everyone could tell something was seriously wrong. Mommy went out to get the car while Paw-paw tried to comfort Molly. Some wet drop fell out of Paw-Paw's eyes as he gently whispered to Molly in spanish, "there, there my little cat...soon now, you won't feel anymore pain. There, there my little cat..."
......Mommy just can't type anymore right now pals.

Though I's couldn'ts see my 'sailant, I's could hear the swooshing sound it are making as it kept taking cheap shots at me wagger then disappearing. Ceel had already taken cover unner da car & was barkin' at me to joins her. "Run Ebbers! It are 'bove you & it are still following you! Take cover!!!" Ceel barked.
As I's made me way toward the da car, me hears the clickity-click-click sound of Mommy's 'pitcher box! Can you believes it! Here I's is---a innocent victim of a fly-by shooting & Mommy are laughing her head off takin' pitchers!!!
