Stuff and pups

It hasn’t been overly exciting around here lately. You can tell because Mum doesn’t write anything in our diaries.
I am enjoying the weather change. I am much more of a cold weather guy. The summer was really hot and I am glad it is over although I do like the extra sunshine hours, cause we get to stay outside longer in the evening. Mum gets all worried about the critters that come up from the river at night and so makes us come in by 7. It will get even earlier once the Daylight time is over and we go back to Standard time. I don’t understand the peeps. Why not just let the time be the time? I know when to get up and when to go to bed. I don’t need somebody to tell me.
Yesterday we did have some excitement but it wasn’t nearly as good as it could have been. There are wild turkeys that show up around here from time to time. They are big, dark and ugly. They were in OUR yard. We were stuck in the house. It was just before Mum got home and by the time she got here they were gone. Hammy & I could have had a great time chasing them. We maybe coulda had a Thanksgiving dinner of our own, BOL.
We have lots of new neighbor pups this year. So far, we like them all. There’s Bea an Akita. Hammy has a thing fur her. They always have to touch noses through the fence. She barks every time we get near her house so she can come out and see us. Then there is Hershey. He is a cute guy of mixed parentage. Looks kinda like a Bassett Hound and Cocker Spaniel mix, has big, fuzzy feet and his ears reach all the way to the ground. He’s fun to play tag with when we go by his place. Then there is Diamond. She a Pittie mix and we don’t get to see her other than through the window. So those are the new pups around here.
I guess you all saw that this year my First Mom went all out and got us costumes. Fizzy, she brought a shark one too but it just didn’t look right and Hammy was having a fit wearing that thing. He didn’t go with the stink eye, I think you have that perfected by the way, instead he shook his whole body and had that thing really moving. So it ended up on his side and we just couldn’t have that, so he’s a lobster. It’s much more comfortable he says.
There are rumors about the groomer fur me this weekend. I heard “too fuzzy” and “the harness is getting tight again”. That means too much hair and it has to go. At least I get a car ride both ways and extra treats fur being a good boy. That’s all fur now. I hope to have another entry sooner than six months Mum!

I didn't really like the shark either, Hammy. But Momma thought it was hilarious, so...

If you guys catch a gobble beast, call me! I'll help you eat it!

Mom says those turkey birds are really, really big! Looks like I'm gonna be a bat for Halloweenie and I'm giving her the stink eye too! Sounds like you have some great new furry neighbors and I am still waiting for cooler weather here.

We get those turkey burds around here, too...and they seem a lot more prevalent in the winter and early spring...when no one is thinking Thanksgiving turkey' BOL!

Nice thatt you know your neighbor pups.

I am glad that this year at least there are no pics being made, nor costumes on me (My pic is 'recycled') so I feel fur you having to endure all this junk...

We have had frost here a few rimes already.
Right now its raining...sigh...
