Momma also got ice cream and cupcake for us to share in two days time. The treats are great and when Star isn't looking her bed is great too! Since she steals my fuzzy pillow I got for my window seat on my birthday in June. I borrow her new bed when she in my pillow! HA.

Momma still sad but we making sure we kissing her to make her feel better at least she laughs when we do that to her.

It stormed really hard on Thursday Momma got the bean bag and blanket to make a cave for us to hide in. The trailer shooked and rolled around and things hit the windows and roof so bad that Momma grabbed us up and held tight as more cracks in the window formed. Then it was just solid rain for several hours. She said she wished God would find us a new home where it had a storm shelter for us to hide in she was afraid one day our home would tumbled off the side of the hill we are on . I'm not scared of storms like Star is. Momma had to drug her this time.
So she was officially drunk for the storm. Momma held us till the storm died down and it was safe to go back to our beds in the front half of the trailer. Where I saw Momma make some more coffee to drink. When she really nervous she drinks it. Usually she doesn't touch it.
She isn't sleeping good again there are noises in the kitchen again that are worrying her that another live stick thing got in again. She got sticky traps everywhere trying to catch whatever it is. I am afraid of those things too after what happen in July.

 

Momma acting weird.

She came back from a swimming trip further in the mountains with her CA friend on Friday smacking herself in the face and telling herself why didn't she say "HI"! Over and over again.

She wanted to take us with her, we like to play in the water too but our landlord daddy won't replace the bad tire on the truck we borrow and there isn't cell service up on hwy 7. So we continued to ride with her near home. Where she could call for help if need be.

She did Ozark Memories Days festival and sold enough soap to pay for one of my shots today. LO! I am so scared of the vet. Momma tried to calm me down but they hurt me really bad when I was a puppy ( spayed) and I was sick for weeks afterwards. They said one pup out of hundred has a bad reaction to it and I was that pup. I am so terrified of them and momma cried too when I cry and begged to leave.

DR Hamm said next time to leave me in the truck he will just come out there and take care of me where I feel safe. Momma said we have to go back for another shot. Yech!
Star loves to go. She runs in and wrapped her paws around everyone and kisses them. I wish she could go in my place. Sigh!

 

I'm an adult now!

3 years old and my black head has turned all brown now. I still eat some bad things for me but since Momma put me on fish oil I don't get those kind of cravings anymore. I don't grab sticks anymore since a snake got into our kitchen in July. It got Star but she is okay just a bit poorly at times. It almost killed momma but now momma sleeps with the lights on all the time terrified it would come back. Our landlord didn't believe in killing it so it got away. Momma keeps saying God will take care of us. She still spends all of her time on the computer working on this and that. Her car is useless at the shop now. She says the miracle in her life is us, Star and I. She drives our landlord's truck sort of stole the keys to it since it was his fault we were without transportation. However, while we have no income we are happy. She finds neat treats for us when she gets out. We get to ride big in that huge pickup.

She still working with me. I can shake hands now, refuse to touch food on the ground. Still barks at some things but we working on it. She trying to find a way to get the money so I can go to dog training school to be able to be trained for therapy work. Star is getting old. Despite our hardships? I love Star and momma they keep me safe when I am scared even when they are scared too.

learning to be a dog!

wow! I'm 9 months old and I been to 5 other state so far!! My people parents had to go to Utah in Sept and since I was too young to be boarded I got to go with them. STar had to be boarded! Whatever that mean I will get to find out in the summer they said. Anyhow I got to learn that in Utah ther is no grass to piss in you have to potty in rock!! ugh! Then in October I had to deal with momma crying every day she was told she was going to get layoff in Janurary in 2012 and there wouldn't be any money to take care of me and Star. Well for three months she cried then she didn't go to work and now she is sort of okay.

She said that someday she will find another job for now we have to help her work her garden if we didnt' noone would get fed. So She takes Star and I up there to where Daddy put in raised beds for her and where she grumbles and work her garden we dig up bugs and good tasty dirt to eat. At first she got mad at us now she jsut lets us do it and once a week she gives us this yechy medicson to take saying it will prevent worms that would be inthe soil we eat. I been really sick twice from eating nails and rocks and things that I'm not supposed to eat , my vet jsut tells momma that is what puppies do.

She was a responisbile pet owner she got a coupon to have me spayed right before she lost her job so now noone runs after me like they did on the county road when she takes us for our walks. Daddy walks us twice on a 1/4 mile walk and she takes me out every time I ask her to!

She is now teaching me how to sit, come, heel and lay down on command. I reward her by sleeping on her chest and licking her face when she crys because once again she didn't get the job she tries for. Said noone wants her since she talks funny with her speech impairment. She had to borrow money when her car died and get another car for us to ride in and she had to borrow money to buy food for us.

In March she was told she had to had all of her teeth remove to live and she isnt' able to eat so she feeds us, just says that she dont' have a way to eat anyhow so why care about herself she loves me and STar and she will do everything possilbe to make us happy!

Anyhow while Ilove having my momma home to play and treat us nice and have fun with I wish she was happy. She goes around and look sad when she looks at her check book this morning. Saying that she didn't know what to do that she loved us soo much but if things don't get better she will have to find a good home for us . Noone cares about her but us and she die without us in her life so she prays everynight for amiracle to keep us in her life. we are her family and our daddy which is her landlord is fussy about money owed. so I hope before i get my birthday that things will get better for my family .

Iprotect them all I got where I bark and warn people not to get too close to us, I dont' want anyone hurting momma anymmore. but she tells me not to bark. She makes handmade soap to sell for a few dollars now. and managed to get us some new chew bones every now and then. I love my momma and STar they are my wonderful family who takes care of me since I 'm not getting bigger and going to be a small doggie.

Momma drove me down to the Bargin Sales on HWy 64 today she said I need to like people and strangel noises!. That Star my bloodline real cousin liked therapy work but she doesn't do well with anyone? That Beltane like everyone and she was started at my age being taken everywhere and loved by everyone!

So MOmma carried me to different yard sales . she gave me several time to nice people who wanted to hold me and loved me. I liked that. then once she got her stuff she would take me back to go to the car and drive to another sale. There were motorcycles made me scared, loud voices strange noises and the train went thru Atkins but as long as I was held by her I knew I was safe!. Everyone says my bred cannot be a therapy dog!! but Star is very well known for her personality and if she can do it I can do it! Momma said there is extra training for therapy work and if possible she will do everything she can do to teach me how to do it! we have a year to do it she says!! So far its been a long and tiring day and she put me in my box to rest I am tired!! I was petted from 2 yrs olds to 90 yr old people today. . One lady cried she just lost her doggie and she wanted to love me a bit and momma said sure that's what makes a good therapy dog . I will tell of my next adventure as soon as I have one she promised I will, lots of them!! Yawn!! good night!
