Skin mom hasn't made an entry for me in a long time. Our computer was gone and she said we couldn't afford to get one until we paid off other more important things. She said a computer isn't a necessity, just a luxury but I can tell she is happy to have one back as she has been on it a lot. So hi everyone. Hope you all had a great summer and the winter isn't being to hard on you.
The weather here was really cold last week. Even in the house we were cold. Now today it will get up in the 40 which feels like a heat wave. I will get to go for a longer walk. Yeah.
Yesterday the skin folks bought Xena a new toy. Why did the cat get a new toy and I didn't? Skin mom says it is because I have destroyed all of Xena's toys and now she doesn't have anything to play with and is being naughty because of it. I am not suppose to play with her toys. Darn. They are easy to rip apart and that is something I really like to do. Skin mom put the toy up real high so I can't get to it. Bummer
Skin mom took my deer antlers away. I broke a tooth out chewing on them so hard. I really liked them but Mom said maybe they were that great a treat after all and she doesn't want me breaking out any more teeth. Didn't hurt much. Sheesh.
Well, we are having a great walk day and the skin dad is making some steak tonight. Your's truly will get some of that you can bet on it. Xena and I have both lived here over a year now since we got adopted. We have it pretty darn good these days. I got a new bed last month, we get lots of loving. I wasn't sure at first how long we would get to stay here. But I finally realized they mean for us to stay here forever. They are not giving us to anyone else else. So we both have relaxed and really become bonded with our skin people. This is what happy feels like.

Well, I don't get shook up by them but my skin people hate them. They think they hitchhike a ride on my body and jump off in the house, only to then crawl up on the skin people and try to bite them. Yesterday they found 5. It is kind of funny watching them find one, jump up and run to throw it in the toilet and then spend the next 10 minutes checking their hair.
Skin mom put some stuff between my shoulder blades to make the ticks die if they bite me. But so far they haven't found any on me, just them. She put it on outside so I spend a while rolling around on my back because that seemed to excite her, she kept running up and saying no Hoss, no. Don't rub it off. Looks like she was enjoying the game so I kept it up, anything to make her happy.
Finally the snow is gone. Bad thing is it went right into hot hot weather. I want to lie outside and enjoy the weather. But I get overheated really fast. Skin mom thought I might enjoy the sprinkler, did not. She then tried to pour water on me, didn't like that either. She is going to get me something called a kiddy pool. I don't think I will like that either.
She says she is going to make me stay in the house. What I do. When she takes me out to do my duty, I lay down on the grass and refuse to move. She pulls and tries to talk me into getting up, I become stone. I love it outside. I dug a nice big hole next to the garage and like to lie in it where it is cool. She keeps filling it up which is nice because then it is cool again when I dig it up.
I went for a walk this morning while it was cool. I love my life.

We went out to Stone park to walk, I really like it out there. It has a lot of great smells. And yesterday we had a entire bus full of kids out there on a field trip.
Of course who can resist me, charming, handsome and friendly. Skin dad stopped and all the kids got to pet me and scratch my tummy. Oh heaven. I just love kids. My skin dad was pretty proud of me because I didn't jump up on any of them. I did get a few face licks in though. I am always gentle around children. Just in my nature. You have to be careful of the little ones to not hurt them. So that made my day.
I was tired after my walk. My skin mom got me a backpack so I can carry my water, treats and my bowl. She said it would help use up more energy. Boy it sure did and I felt great. So when we got home I got on my favorite bed to take a nap. Xena was in the window watching the birds.
I was sound asleep when all of a sudden Xena let out this blood curdling howl. Scared the crap out me. I leaped out of bed and tore out of the room sure a demon of some sort was loose in the room. Skin dad in the meantime was tearing into the room, sure I had murdered Xena. Like even. She may drive me crazy but I would never hurt her.
Turns out she was looking out the window and there was a strange cat in her yard. Man, talk about over-reacting Xena. You took 10 years off me. I sat by the skin dad shaking and he comforted me and gave me a treat. Sometimes I act like a chicken because skin dad can always be counted on to pop me a treat to reassure me it is OK.
I hope the strange cat doesn't come around again but I sure do not like the noise that little cat is capable of making. Wow. I never even bark and I weigh 80 pounds. She weighs 9 pounds. Silly cat.
