It's been a long time since we've barked collectively, but since then our daddy went to Heaven to be met my our fur angels on January 29, 2013. That was a shock to all of us. Jiffy was the only one who was at his side with mama the night he left us. Mama's been depressed, but us four have kept her busy most days. As some peeoples tell her she rescued us, but now we're rescuing her. We gots to keep her around cuz we like our home and don't want to go anywhere else.
We cannot begin to reconstruct all that's happened in between, but it's been an uphill road fur awhile. Things are starting to settle just a bit. Mama installed a fencing to split the yard so Bella and Rosie don't have physical contact until she works on their dominance issues. Bella ruined it by jumping through the top spacing. That little stinker!! It's been so hot mama has all she can do to keep up with the weeding and the yard work, but plans to put up some deer netting along the top part of the fence so Bella can't get through it anymore.
We've got a new groomer and we all like her. Her name's Ms. Simone. The bad part is we can't all run loose like we did at Ms. Erin's place, but that's the price we pay when mama has to cut back on expenses. At least she knows we're well taken care of cuz all of us are still happy and not scared when she picks us up. Speaking of grooming we all got pretty much shaved fur summertime this past week. Mama says it will grow back before we know it. BOL!! She got us some new treats. They're some alligator biscuits and boy are they yummy. We all like them, but our cousins Grace and Tara turned up they noses when mama gave them each one. Shame on them!! That's more fur us cuz mama was gonna leave a bag with them. BOL!!
Oh and mama brought a Tweety bird home with her a week before our hair cuts. OMD!! That little bird teases us with all that chirping and bouncing around in her cage. Mama said Scooter is acting like Spike used to by sitting in front of the cage just staring at Tweety. You see Tweety's been part of mama's life since 2006, but she stayed with our skin bro since we moved out here in 2011. She's now a permanent fixture on the back porch. She rings bells, chirps like crazy every time one of us or mama goes on the porch, and she swings a lot. The only thing that upsets us is mama locks us in the house while she lets Tweety out of the cage at least twice a day.
July 4th night was not pleasant fur Rosie. She was petrified of the fireworks the neighbor across the street was lighting up. She had on her Thundershirt, but was still frantic every time a loud boom went off. Poor Rosie hid under the bed most of the night, but thankfully it was all over by 1 a.m. and she went out fur potty time then was able to snuggle with mama fur a good night's rest.

cuz skin bro came today to celebrate Christmas since he's doing better and past the contagious time fur spreading the virus to anybody.
OMD! We got some really great pawresents too.
He brought us some Greenies, some Tillman's Treats, some Stress Away soft chews for Bella & Rosie and Thundershirts for Rosie and Bella.
You wouldn't believe it...Rosie is a different dog with the Thundershirt on. It calmed her down to the point all she wanted to do is lay down and watch everybody. Mama says this will be so good when she goes to the vet or to Ms. Erin's. There wasn't much difference in Bella, but mama says she'll put Bella's on again tomorrow. YAY fur Thundershirts.

...and it was pretty cool and also sad. Cool cuz we got some loofa doggies, some Greenies and Zuke's carrot treats. We also got a dinner plate full of stuffed things that look like food. BOL!!! Mama gave us bully sticks to wind down the day with. It was sad cuz skin bro is sick with an upper respiratory infection and wouldn't come to the house cuz it's contagious. He was scared dad would catch it and make him sicker to the point he'd have to be hospitalized. Dad stayed in the bed all Christmas day! We sure wish he'd get well so we could bark at him more. Maybe fur the new year he'll be up and about like before.
Mama made some gingerbread cake today...oh boy it smells so good. Rosie was watching it come out of the oven and tried to jump up to it. Mama said no we can't have any, but can have doggie biscuits. That's teasing us with those smells all over the house!!
