Arrival Story: Barney is a brother to Harvey. He came here from his breeders when Harvey was diagnosed and treated for LCPD. Barney is Harvey's "replacement".
Bio: Barney came here at almost 10 months of age. He marched in and settled down as if he had lived here all his life. We are already in love, especially his brother Harvey and his sister Condi. It's one, big, happy family now!
Every Spring there is drama around here when Momsie removes our pajamas. We have been wearing them ALL Winter with only a few breaks here and there to change to some clean ones.
Finally, it got warm and off they came. OMD, I was shocked to discover that my big brother, Harvey, is now THINNER than I am!!! How could this be, I ask?
You may remember I wrote about the removal of the PJ's last year and how I was so trim and muscular while Harv, poor boy, was downright FAT! I alluded to the fact that since I was mature when I was neutered that I would naturally be in better shape and because Harvey was neutered as a baby, he would be naturally soft and pudgy.
Imagine my shock when I noticed some pudge on MY body and trim, rippling muscles on Harvey. I am sure he must be sick or something...why else would HE be thinner than I am????
The real kicker is that his skin is much darker than mine so once the sun shines on him, he is black with pure white spots. Me, I am sort of grayish, and I don't have anywhere near the amount of white that he has.
Oh well, I shall have to charm everyone with my bubbly personality and intelligence rather than my handsome, good looks, I guess. That, plus a little attention to how much food I am eating, BOL!
Today Momsie came home from work all excited cuz she was going to take us down to the field to play in the snow. oh boy, yippee. First she found nice jackets for us all, mine was too small cuz she put it over my fleece pajamas.
Out we went, we go out the kitchen door and Mom comes out by the shed so we don't wipe her out. We didn't and off they headed to the field. Got to the gate, Momsie and Quincy and Toto and Cryssie and Beanie and Riley and even silly Zena raced down the path and into the field. Mom went over to her chair, spread her blanket over the snow and sat down with her cameras.
But wait... where are the rest of the snow bunnies??? Mom looked everywhere, both thru the lens AND without it, and was missing ME, Harvey, Annie and Ali.
Surprise, we were all hiding up on the porch, out of the blowing, falling, freezing snow and wind. We are not stupid, Mother dear!!!
You can have your snow and cold and wet and did I mention COLD???
Notice the photo Mom took of me playing in the snow that she put on my page??? Yup, that it not something wrong with the camera, I was NOT IN THAT PHOTO, BOL!!!!
Well, it was a very nice vacation and I had a really good time with Julie! She was pretty surprised that I didn't pay ANY attention to Mom, only to her. I thought that was what I was supposed to do???
Actually, I was a little mad...when we got back to our house Julie just hopped in her car and drove to her house without ME!!! I thought I was hers???
Mom says while I am a little nervous about some of the trip things, overall, I am a great traveler. I was quiet, clean and didn't do anything wrong. Beanie did, he peed in his pee belt the first day, BAD BOY! Not me!!
We did have a great time and I am now very relaxed and refreshed. I sure hope I can go on the next vacation. They were talking about going to Canada...that could be nice????
