Long Time No Diary

Hello everyone in Dogsterland! It's been a very long time since my siblings and I wrote so I got voted to update everyone on our life now.

We got a new sister a couple of years ago. Mom didn't put her on here yet but she is a cute little Phantom Poodle. Her name is Jazzy. She is a little love bug.

One of our horse brothers, Phantom, went over the Rainbow Bridge. Mom misses him a lot but she still has her Bentley.

We got a new cat sister named Katy. She was living with a lady who moved away and just left her. Poor Katy was all alone in the apartmeht for two weeks and had run out of food and water. She only has one eye and it is almost totally blind. She is the sweetest little kitty we have.

The HUGE news though, is that we don't live in Bakersfield any more. We don't even live in California. We moved to a place called Arkansas. The people here talk different, but we like it.

We live in a house in the country so we don't get into trouble for barking anymore and it's so quiet and far from town that we've only heard one siren in the last two months. No more howling ten times a day.

Since we got here we got three more cat siblings. One boy, named Louie and two sisters, Little Hope and Sissy. Louie was causing trouble at his home and they didn't want him anymore so we took him in. Little Hope and Sissy were dumped at our church. It is out in the country and Mom went and fed them for a couple of weeks but was worried something bad would happen to them because the local farmer's dog kept coming and chasing them up a tree. They were so little they couldn't climb down. Mom brought them home one Sunday. They play outside most of the day but Mom puts them in a big cage at night so the wildlife doesn't get them. When it's too cold she brings them in to the bathroom with their bed and food. She would like to keep them inside but nine cats would be too many and sister Sierra would start peeing around the house again. They are happy though. Sometimes Sissy roams to far from the house and Mommy has to go shake the treat can and she will come running. They brought mommy a few gifts to thank her for saving them. Lizards, frogs, a rat and a mole.

Since we've been here I turned 14. My years of jogging with Mom and running the trails with her and Phantom have caught up with me. I have arthritis and have a tough time walking withoug a limp and sometimes Mom helps me get up, but I'm in good health and I get medicine for the arthritis. My Mom loves me so much.

Well, Dogsters. Sorry it's been so long. We will try to do better at keeping things updated.

 

KITTY!

Guess what. Mom brought home a tiny little kitty. YEAH! I want to give it love sooooo bad but she won't let me yet. She says it is still too little for me. She has to feed it with a baby bottle and help it go to the bathroom. Wow! Anyway, we aren't sure if we can keep it or not. Right now several people are trying to just get the babies through the nursing stage. Let's cross our fingers!

My other cats are really mad at Mom right now. Nala hisses at her and won't let her come near even when the kitten is in another room. What a schitzo! Doesn't she know it is just like she was?

I will ask mom to put a picture of her here and on Catster so you can see her.

Yeah for me!

 

Howdy!

Hi Dogsters! It's been a while. Mom is adding some pictures today. I hope you enjoy them. I had fun taking them.

Mom took Barney and me to visit Grandma a couple of weeks ago and it snowed. We had so much fun. Mom took us up the highway to play in it because it melted off of the yard quickly. It was great. The best part was that it snowed all night before we left so we got to play in the yard at home before we left. Mom bought us the great coats that kept us very warm and dry because we are not used to the cold and snow. We don't have that at home.

We have a new brother. (I thought there was no room at the inn?) His name is Sebastian. He likes to eat chicken too! That's why he came to us. His owner said she couldn't have a dog that killed chickens. He ate hers and the neighbors. I told him not to think he was going to get away with that here either. Mom would not be pleased!

Today Mom had to go to work. I like it when she works on Saturday. Nobody is there so she takes Barney and me with her. We just hang out in the office while she does what she does. A whole day with Mom. How great!

Mom and Dad are talking about going to the pound to adopt another cat. I hope it's a nice one. I love the nice kitties. They kind of want an adult cat because nobody else takes them but I'm pulling for a kitten to love. I'll let you know what happens.

Well, dogsters I've gotta go now.

 

Riding!

Yeah! Today Barney and I got to go trail riding with Mom! We haven't gone in a long time because Mom is always too worried about the coyotes. Today she put us in the back of the truck and Phantom in the trailer and off we went to Lake Ming. We had so much fun running and swimming. Mom stopped in the shade for a few minutes and gave us a cookie. It was the best cookie I ever had (I was starving because I wouldn't eat breakfast).

We got in a bad spot in the river and couldn't get out. Barney was scared but I told him not to worry, Mom and Phantom would help us and they did. After that we weren't allowed run ahead to go into the river unless Mom looked at the current and bank first. She found us a good spot to walk around in on a sand bar. Crazy Barney lays down up to his neck and sticks his head in to drink.

I am sure tired. It was hot so we didn't stay out too long. Mom didn't want us to get sick in the sun.

What a great day!

 

Sister

I forgot to mention that Mom brought us home a sister. She's not big like Jillian but she is very very tiny. Her name is Foxie and she is a Chihuahua mix. She is very cute but she likes to play with Otis which is fine with me because I'm not interested at all.

Mom told me not to worry, that she loves me too much and I am not being replaced. That's good because if we run out of room somebody's gotta go and it won't be me.

Hi Dogsterland! So much is happening lately. We got another new sister. Her name is Foxie and she is a very tiny chihuahua. Mom caught her at work. She had been running around for a couple of weeks and had a bite from something bigger than her. Mom finally caught her and brought her home. She got shots and spayed and has made herself at home. Her favorite playmates are Otis and Barney. You should see them. She thinks she is as big as Barney and acts like it.

Not long after Foxie came mom had an operation in her head. The doctors found something called an aneurysm. It wasn't popped yet but was quite large. If it would have we wouldn't have our mom anymore. She was able to get it fixed without even getting her head cut open. Yep; they just went from her leg up into her brain.

Now my mom is home with us for a few weeks. She was supposed to be able to go to work in a week but she is having bad headaches. I don't like it when Mom doesn't feel good. She doesn't want to go outside and play or anything. I hope she gets to feeling better soon.

We are just so happy that Mom is going to be fine.

 

Away With Mom

Mom had her 40th birthday this week. She hasn't been very excited about it so she decided that she would go celebrate in Lake Tahoe by going hiking again. I like the way mom celebrates because it ususally includes me!

We went to a place called Emerald Bay and hiked up the mountain above it to a lovely little lake. I wish we could have gone further but we weren't prepared for an overnighter, just for the day.

We went with our aunt this time. It was nice having her along for the company since we aren't very good at conversation with mom and when she talks to us people stare at her.

Can't wait to go again. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!

 

Great Trip With Mom!

Howdy folks! This weekend Mom took Barney and me on a trip. We got to go see Grandma up in the mountains again. It was a lot different than the last time I was there. THis time no snow.

Mom wanted me to show Barney the ropes of traveling so I was in charge. I showed him all around the big back yard and all of the great trees. I took him hiking up a mountain to the top of a great big waterfall where we could see Lake Tahoe. He did pretty good but I will have to work on his mountain climbing skills with him. He does not have a big jump like I do so we had to help him up the rocks a lot. What a great day out. We met so many nice people.

Mom put a bed in the back of the truck and took us all over the hills to different orchards where we got to go buy goodies and pick fruit. We were on our very best behavior and everyone stopped to pet us.

We even managed to stretch a 5 hour drive home into over 8. Mom likes to stop and read historical markers and visit old historical towns to shop. We even went to a gold mine. Mom took a one hour tour and a nice lady who worked there let us hang around with her at her work station for a little while so we didn't have to wait outside the whole time even though Mom took us to the shade and gave us a bowl of water and chew bones. What great people!

Have I ever said how much I love traveling with Mom? I LOVE IT! Mom's talking about taking another hiking trip again soon before the snow comes. How great is that?! Even if the snow comes it will be great because I love playing in it.

Signing off for now.

Barney and Otis

We still have Barney. I think he's here to stay unless someone exceptionally wonderful comes along. Mom has taught him how to sit and down and we have even gone to the stable together. He follows me around like a big brother ought to.

Now, on to Otis. Mom and dad were loading their things into the car to go on vacation and what should appear but this little bitty black and white dog. Well, mom couldn't just let him stay on the street to get run over so she put an ad in the paper and left him with us and the sitter. It's hard to believe but nobody called or appears to even be looking for him. I sure am glad my mom really loves us because she would have cancelled vacation to find us. We will keep looking in the paper just in case his parents are out of town too.

I'll keep you posted on my "foster" brothers.

 

Foster Brother

The last time I wrote mom was having a hard time because our sister, Jillian, had crossed the bridge. Well, a couple of weeks later Mom brought this puppy home from work because she felt sorry for him. Of course, she assured us all (including Dad) that he was just temporary and that she would find him a home. Well here we are, nearly 2 months later, and we still have that puppy in our yard. He started answering to Puppy pretty quickly so we finally started calling him Barney after about 2 weeks. Barney has now had all of his shots and just got "fixed". I wonder if this means he's not a foster brother any more?

Mom has made sure that I don't feel replaced and she is taking me for walks and to the stable. And of course I get to sleep next to her on the bed. I guess I could start to like Barney if he would just quit licking and nipping at my snout.

I'll let you know how it goes with Barney and whether he gets a great home or stays with us.
