Arrival Story:
Barney joined us in the Spring of 2010. He was a "replacement" for his brother Harvey after Harvey couldn't be a show dog due to his leg surgery. Barney went to two shows, he did very well but then we discovered he has the same eye disease as his brother at which time his eye was also removed and he was neutered.

Barney and Harvey are as different as night and day. Barney is more reticent with meeting people but also more cuddly and snuggly. He is also more concerned with the creature comforts and rarely leaves the porch during Winter weather. As far as he is concerned, Winter means that cushy bed beside the heater!!

Forums Motto:
Design jewelry, not dogs!

Today we had a heat wave. The temperature jumped all the way up to 15 degrees Fahrenheit, and Mom said the sun actually felt warm. Sure, Mom, I don't feel any warmth on my bare body!!!
Anyway, in honor of said heat wave Momsie decided we should all troop down to the lab pen and run around in that freezing snow. Maybe the air temperature was 15F, but that snow was still well below zero, and the sun was just bouncing off it.
She went to the jacket box and got us all decked out in various coats and wraps. I got a nice, thick black jacket over my fleece pj's, it was quite comfy, I must admit. Comfy for a nice nap in front of the heater, that is.
So, off we go, us dogs headed out the kitchen door and Mom met us at the shed door. In the confusion of nine dogs all racing around, I just ducked back into the shed, BOL! It was dark in there and Mom didn't even miss me.
Everyone raced around in the snow and did cute things for Mom to photograph. Not me, it was STILL freezing in that shed and I was cold, cold, COLD!!! I glanced over at the gate, there was Harvey, standing on the wrong side of the gate, whining to come join me in my shed. Frankly, I wish he COULD join me, there is warmth in numbers, but that gate was shut tight.
Finally, it was evident that all that snow was making the other dogs cold, even with their jackets on, and Mom had a cold butt cuz she was sitting on a snow covered frozen chair. So, they all trudged back up to the shed and headed into the warm house.
Mom took everyone's jackets off and we all hit the beds to warm up. Momsie put the SD card in the computer to check out the photos and suddenly realized there were NO photos of me, hehehe!
I am pretty sure based on the history of the last two trips to the snow field, next time I can just sneak under the desk when they all troop out. There is no way she will miss me, I am sure, and I can be warm and comfy and all alone with the best bed!


Diary of the day, yippee!!

Mom is kind of embarrassed... after she deleted all of us a few months ago, yesterday she finally put us all back. Of course, she didn't have time to really write any diaries so she cut and pasted mine. Wouldn't ya know that was the day they picked me!!!
Anyway, we ARE back and so far, nothing has changed. We STILL didn't get any notification that I was the DDOD, nor that we had all received lots of comments and gifts. I guess some things NEVER change!!!
Anyway, Mom just put a turkey in the oven for us all. She is thinking we all should go down in the lab pen for a run, BUT, it is only 22 degrees and a North wind is whipping around out there. I voted for the nice dog bed under the desk next to the furnace vent!!!!
She also wants to put up the Christmas tree, but that is no fun cuz she puts a DOG EXPEN around it!!! Now, how in the world are we supposed to enjoy the tree when we can't even get any ornaments off it??? Hopefully the cats will help with that???
Well, gotta go, she is putting a sweater and her boots on...
Thanks for all your visits and gifts!!! Guess I will be the NEW visitor number leader over Toto and Beanie, hehehe!!!


We're back....

Mom got mad at all the ads and spams and junk going on with our Dogster pages so in a fit of anger she deleted us all!!!! Of course, she finally came to her senses and is now recreating our pages cuz of course, she waited long enough for the originals to be deleted from HQ.

Mom says she will miss our diaries the most, but will start up again after she gets all our pages up.
