Yup, it IS true. There was a tragedy at work and Bubbles, my cousin from Kansas who lived with my daughter Georgie and their friend, Sandy, were here for grooming. Bubbles has been here living for five years, then she has been with these people for another three years and has ALWAYS been healthy and happy.
Well, for whatever reason, while Mom was grooming her she had a seizure and DIED!!! Mom almost died herself, never, EVER has that happened in over 40 years of grooming dogs! The vet is right next door to our kennel and Tonya raced up there with Bubbles because Mom thought she might still be alive but they said she was not. It was awful, both Mom and Tonya were crying, then when Mom called the new owner they were all crying again.
Well, her daughter called and asked Mom to PLEASE, PLEASE find her mom another dog ASAP. Tonya suggested Mom send Ali to them... this lady is a PERFECT owner and besides, she already has my daughter and Bubbles and I were just alike and loved EVERYONE and Mom said OK. So, when the lady came to get Georgie and Sandy Mom asked her if she wanted to try me. Suddenly, everyone was crying again, and the lady said she would be honored to have me and was really happy Mom let me go there.
Mom said it was very hard but she knows I will be the center of attention there and I really do deserve that! Mom said I was one of many here and it was selfish of her to keep me when this lady and her grand kids will dote on me day and night.
Soo, off I went! I am coming in for grooming next week and I will have another diary about my NEW life!! Besides, it will be nice to see Georgie again, I missed her.

It has been a pretty difficult Summer for being on Dogster, especially when I am trying to impress my beau. I get nicely groomed, put on my pretty clothes and jewels and model whilst Mom or Julia or Skye photograph me, then I can't get the photos to load on Dogster!
I try to keep up with his diary but if he is a pick you cannot get there from here so you have to search around to figure out how to read it! At least the gifts seem to work again.
I am not complaining, mind you. It is WAY, WAY better than it was in the Spring. We can actually sign in now, we can leave photo comments even though we can't always load the photos, and the time is right on the forums.
Oh well, I will save my pretty photos and perhaps they will be accepted in the morning??? Hope so!!

Yup, sure enough, Mom gave us ALL Summer doos, although Summer seems a bit late in coming this year! Tomorrow is June 1st and the high today was only in the very low 60's. The low was only 42!!!! Brrrrr.
Anyway, back to my Summer doo. Mom cuts all my body pretty short, well, VERY short, and leaves bracelets on my ankles and hocks. I think I look quite fetching with that doo, and Mom says I have a nice, thick curly coat which helps make it look better. Of course, it would look MUCH better if my HUGE scar on my back didn't show. In case you forgot, that is where Toto licked me and made a HUGE blister which was nasty and painful. Now the black scar shows and my hair is not curly over the rest of that area.
Oh well, I am still the cutest of Mom's dogs, at least I think I am and that is what counts, right??? And, in the nice Summer fresh green grass, my curly white coat stands out quite nicely!
Back to me, it's all about me, you know! I like Summer and I always can find a nice toy to play with. Mom says I am weird and I toss my toy up in the air, then run around and catch it. Barney does this, too, cuz I taught him how.
Anyway, Beanie, the self appointed dog police, comes rushing up and jumps on me whenever I am playing. He must call Toto for backup, because Toto always barrels into me, too. I have learned to just drop the toy and lie down instantly...they run off feeling like they have done their job and I slowly get up and find my toy and start playing again.
It IS hard to be part of a multi dog family, but I suppose the company makes up for it??? I do know that Toto (and Beanie) are very, very warm and soft when I snuggle up with them on the cold Winter nights!!!!
