That's right pups...I gots me-self in trouble again! It happened a short while ago. It all beguns when Auntie put some kibble in a bowl for Ebbers. She turned her back to put some kibbles in another bowl & suddenly all hell broke loose! There's growling & baring of teeth. I's on the attack & Ebbers lets out a whimper & is backing off. Quick as a flash Auntie yells "STOP!!!" as she puts her foot between us & uses her hand to 'bite' my neck! I submit & roll on my back. Ebbers is pouting & hiding behind Auntie. One of her beady eyes is closed shut. Auntie doesn't 'hand-bite' her, jus me. It all happened so fast she can't be 100% sure who started it but she said I got blamed for it only because I's the one who seemed to be attacking while Ebbers was backing away. At first she thought Ebber's had been bit on her beady-eye but wasn't able to find any blood. After 'bout a minute, I's 'llowed to get up & all was forgiven. Ebbers & me sniffed each other & barked our sorrys to one another and all was back to normal. Auntie even gave each a treat for getting over it so quickly.

As mos' of you's knows, Ebbers is the Goody-Four-Paws in this pack. I's, on the other paw, are the 'black-dog' of the family (meaning I's the rebellious fur-child that always seems to get into troubles.) Well, ole' Goody-Four-Paws wasn't so goods this past Sunday out at Paw-Paw's! She was a Baddy-Four-Paws (also known as a Ceeley~Auntie's words) and got herselfs in troubles...tee, hee, hee!
It all beguns when we went out for our walk. Me, Ebbers & Jasper (aka Goose) was all trottin' along when suddenly Ebbers spots sumfin' out in the open field. She runs over to 'vestigate. It are a small 'dillo. Auntie yells, "Ebony get over here NOW!!!" At first, Ebbers 'nores Auntie's order & continues to wrestle with the 'dillo. Auntie yells at her again & this times, Miss Goody-Fours-Paws reluctantly listens. We continued on our walk, but as soon a Auntie's back was turned, Ebbers runs back to the dillo. This time no matter how much Auntie yells, Ebbers don't listen. In fact, she starts barking frantically, "Ceel, Goose come helps!!!!!" So Jasper and me joins in the fight! All the while Auntie is beside herself yelling & screaming at us ~ "STOP IT! LEAVE IT! EBONY, CEELEY, JASPER GET YOUR BUTTS OVER HERE NOW!!!!!!!" She runs over to us and her demon voice comes out. "NOOOO!!! I SAID STOP IT!!! LEAVE IT ALONE!!!" Jasper & me backs off but Ebbers is in a frenzy, barking and lunging at the 'dillo. At one point the 'dillo stands on its hind legs & makes snorting sounds (looked like it was boxing). This makes Ebbers madder! The 'dillo turns & runs towards its hole & Ebbers is 'bout to go after it but Auntie goes Caesar Millan on Ebbers & pins her to the ground by neck (ps~I did not hurt her.) "WHEN I TELL YOU TO STOP, YOU STOP!!!" Jasper got scared & took off down the road towards the house to tell Paw-Paw Auntie yelled at him! I's followed Jasper's lead to took off towards the house too!
Ebbers trails behind me with her tail 'tween her legs. She keeps looking at Auntie with pouty sad, puppy-eyes but Auntie still mad. "Keep walking! I'm mad at you! You've all been very bad dogs! Especially YOU!" Ebbers lowers her head & makes for the house.
When we's 'reash the house, Ebbers goes to the living room puts her face on the floors. She has a sad, pouty face and gives everyones her mos' pitiful sad puppy-eyes. "What's wrong with Ursula?" Paw-Paw asked. "Oh she pouting cause I yelled at her. She and her partners in crime ganged up on a little armadillo that wasn't bothering anyone. Bullies!" Auntie tell Paw-Paw. Paw-Paw starts laughing. BOL...well, well...Miss Perfect not so perfect after all!

Today is my Birthday/Gotcha day. I is one blessed dog. I was rescued from the pound where I's scheduled to be put down because there was no more room for me. My Ma Letty 'greed to foster me then later ended up adopting me. Then when cousin Wrinkles left for the bridge, Auntie Lulu brought me to live with her so's Ebbers wouldn't be so lonely. I's made many friends here on Dogster & I's feel blessed. I thanks the Great Master above for surrounding me with so mush love!

On the morning of September 11, 2001, there was an unprecedented amount of activity at the Rainbow Bridge. Decisions had to be made. They had to be made quickly. And, they were.
An issue, not often addressed here, is the fact that many residents really have no loved one for whom to wait. Think of the pups who lived and died in hideous puppy mills. No one on earth loved or protected them. What about the many who spent unhappy lives tied in backyards? And, the ones who were abused. Who are they to wait for?
We don't talk about that much up here. We share our loved ones as they arrive, happy to do so. But we all know there is nothing like having your very own person who thinks you are the most special pup in the Heavens.
Last Tuesday morning a request rang out for pups not waiting for specific persons to volunteer for special assignment... An eager, curious crowd surged excitedly forward, each pup wondering what the assignment would be.
They were told by a solemn voice that unexpectedly, all at once, thousands of loving people had left Earth long before they were ready.
All the pups, as all pups do, felt the humans' pain deep in their own hearts. Without hearing more, there was a clamoring among them - "May I have one to comfort?" "I'll take two, I have a big heart." "I have been saving kisses forever."
One after another they came forward begging for assignment. One cozy-looking fluffy pup hesitantly asked, "Are there any children coming?
I would be very comforting for a child 'cause I'm soft and squishy and I always wanted to be hugged." A group of Dalmatians came forward asking to meet the FireFighters and be their friends. The larger working breeds offered to greet the Police Officers and make them feel at home.
Little dogs volunteered to do what they do best, cuddle and kiss. Dogs who on Earth had never had a kind word or a pat on the head, stepped forward and said, "I will love any human who needs love."
Then all the dogs, wherever on Earth they originally came from, rushed to the Rainbow Bridge and stood waiting, overflowing with love to share - each tail wagging an American Flag

Ebbers & me had our first major fight. It are over a cheese crumb that falled to the floors. Lemme tell you's how it all beguns:
Well Auntie was in the 'kishen cookin. Ebbers, as usual was right there at her feet in case anything fell. I's was in the living room on my bed napping. Anywho, I woked up & was on my way to get me-self a drink of waters and that's when I sawed it! There in the 'kishen was Ebbers...staring up at 'sumtin with her beady-eyes big as saucers, her head cocked & with that big goofy grin of hers. I looks up to see what she staring at and that's when I's sees it....a scrumptious golden cheese nugget coming straight down! The rest was like in slow motions.
I's lung me-self like a spring in the air (us doxie's are great at this!) and snatch that crumb away from Ebbers! After that all hell broke loose! Don't know who struck first but we was at it! Oh ya'lls shoulda heard the growls & baring of teeth!
Then suddenly we hears this frightening, deep demon voice say, "NOOOOOO!!!" It came from Auntie as she slams her foot between us to breaks us up. Scared Ebbers & me half to death! Ebbers 'mediately cowers to floor & lowers head. I rolls on me back in 'smission. I's so scared I pees on me-self a little bit. For several seconds Auntie says nothing as she stares us down. Ebbers & me's just stay as we's is. We keep our eyes down & dare not look at her. After what seemed like forevers, Auntie's demon voice goes away & her normal voice returns. "Okay girls, I'll have no more of that nonsense. It's okay, ya'll can get up now." she said. She check us out to make sure we didn't have any bites or blood. Neither of us did. Ebbers was poutin'. She had this sad, pouty face as she whined, "That was my crumb. I had my beady-eye on it first and Ceel came & stealed it from me." Auntie felt sorry for her and gave us both another piece of cheese.
A WORD FROM AUNTIE: I had to show these two little ones who the pack leader is!

Wells, as you knows she is in love with a purr named Maurice who beats her & takes 'vantage of her! Well I's for one is not gonna sit 'round and not bark 'sumtin 'bout it!
Ebbers told me to stay out of it. She said if Whitley is in luv with a purr that was her 'biness & I should keep my sniffer out of it. Well no-siree-bob...I's gonna stick my sniffer in this till Whitley comes to her senses!
It are bad 'nuff that she's in luv with a cat, but to find out Maurice kitty-punches her & takes 'vantage of her...well I's not gonna just sit 'round & not say 'sumtin!!!
Whitley you's in a 'busive relationship AND YOU'S IN DENIAL!
In her diary, there's a even a 'pitcher of them two after Maurice got done smacking her 'round...can you pups believe it?! (She's in so much denial she 'prolly thinks she deserved it!)...AND as if this wasn't 'nuff, Maurice eats her kibble & tries to take over her bed and all the while Whitley walks 'round swooning over him thinking he does this cause he loves her! WAKES UP WHITLEY AND GET YOURSELF SOME HELPS!!!!

Auntie tells me not to worry. She says I looks just fine.
