Arrival Story:
Hoss was adopted by us on Sept 15 2012. He was rescued when his owner threatened to shoot him if he wasn't picked up right away. From the scars on his back legs it wasn't the first time he had been shot. We had never adopted a full grown dog before but it was a match made in heaven. He has never met anyone he doesn't like and is affectionate and sweet. He is full of energy but 2 big walks a day and he is good to go.

We did a DNA test to find out for sure what breed he was and it came back Bulldog/Boxer. With his broad head we think English bulldog. He acts goofy like a boxer and stubborn like a mule. We think that is from the bulldog.

Puppy, what a pest

So a week ago I was napping minding my own business and my skin folks came home with a surprise for me. I really tiny yippy smelly puppy. What the heck. Why would they want to bring another dog home, and why one so tiny I can't even play with it?

The first night the little brat cried most the night, it totally ruined my sleep. I crawled under the bed to try and escape the noise. I was hoping they were just watching the brat for someone. Nope, she has been here over a week now.

I lay on the floor to snooze and this tiny big of noise starts barking at me and wanting to play. Out of my way kid, I groan, you're bothering me. Xena, my cat friend was really excited at first. She thought she got live dinner. But, the skin people told her not the hurt the puppy and watched them both like a hawk. Today I saw the cat laying with the puppy, traitor.

I suppose I will get used to her since it doesn't look like she is going anywhere soon. But why oh why did they get such a tiny noisy little thing. To me she looks like a squeak toy, I bet I would get in trouble though if I tried to make her squeak.


We have a computer again

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.


I hate ticks

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.
