Dutchess has found the toy box and is having a good time.

Barking Chihuahuas and the mail man and his truck.

Favorite Toy:
All of them so far.

Arrival Story:
Dutchess has just joined our family and we are so excited. Now Pippi will have a sister about her size, too. She just prances about especially when you say we are going outside or when we get outside.

Dutchess went from having three kitty siblings to three dog and two kitty sisters. Patches (22 year old cat) took to Dutchess right away, rubbing against her as soon as she met her. Patches also likes Dutchess' bed. Pippi and Dutchess have been zooming around the house together. Let's just hope Pippi doesn't teach Dutchess any bad habits. Dutchess is such a sweetheart!

18-Jan-2013 -- Springbrook Park and Grandma's House

This day just keeps getting better and better. I DID get to go on the walk today. And better yet, I got to be the only one who went. Actually I don't really care if the others come or not. I just like to get out and go! The sun came out and melted most of the snow, but because of the slushy snow and all the rain we have had lately it was kind of muddy and soggy. You should see the waterproof hoodie Mom made for me. Mud covered. Hehe.

After the walk I got to go to Grandma's house again. When we got inside there was this great sunny spot on the floor in the kitchen. My feet were still a little cold from the walk. So I plopped myself down and soaked up a lot of warm sunshine. In fact I took a nap there. Great spot for a nap.

Last night I kept trying to take over Mom's pillow in the bed. I tried to point out that she was hogging it. She kept moving me for some reason. Tonight I am napping with my head on the cat's pillow. Everyone has a pillow but me. That's it. I need a pillow for my head!


18-Jan-2013 -- Daily Diary Pick -- And SNOW!

I just found out I am one of today's Daily Diary Picks. How exciting! Mom said she hopes this doesn't go to my head because I already have some attitude sometimes. Especially when I kick my back legs. You can tell I mean business. Serious business. I also have this look to go with the kick. But that is all for another entry.

Yesterday we got some snow. Now not much, and what we did get was pretty slushy, but we were still excited. Mom quickly made Pippi and I some waterproof hoodies since it was still coming down, plus everything was so wet from all the rain and rain and more rain we've had. Once they were done we went out and played in the snow a little bit. We didn't stay out long. That slushy stuff can be pretty cold on your feet pretty quickly! Pip likes to chase snow balls. I was too busy exploring and getting my new hoodie muddy. Hehe.

A little earlier in the day we drove by one of our usual walking trails ... the greenway. Parts of it were still under water. Today we are going to meet some people over at the park and walk, but I'm guess we don't go on and do the greenway. Hehe. I told Mom since I was a Daily Diary Pick I should get to be one of the ones that gets to walk today. Since there are four of us Mom makes us take turns. I'm a lucky girl this week, so I know it's going to be me!


16-Jan-2013 -- A Day Out

There have been no hikes and pack walks this week. It's been too wet. We've had rain and rain and more rain. But I did get a day out with Mom. First we went to Grandma's house. We had barely been there at all when we got back in the car, along with Grandma and went to pick up our car, which was being fixed. Mom and Grandma both commented on how well I behave in the car. What would they expect from a Dutchess? After that it was a super quick trip to Wal-Mart, where I had to wait in the car. Hmph. But the next stop was Hobby Lobby, where I did get to go in. Not only did I get to go in, but I got to ride in the shopping cart! Mom even put a blanket in the bottom for me so I could ride in comfort and style. I kind of liked that. There are some interesting things up that high to smell and look at. On the way out we stopped to talk to a family that used to have a Min Pin. I knew I liked them. After that it was back to Grandma's while Mom worked on a quilt. The best part was Grandma spoiled me with extra treats while Mom was in the other room. Gotta love Grandma even if she can't remember my name and calls me Hostess most of the time. All in all not bad for a rainy day.
