Boy, it has been tough getting on Dogster lately. Last weekend we ran in the lab pen lots and Mom got lots of photos and low and behold, we couldn't put them on until this weekend!!!
And, other times we can read forum posts but not respond or other silly things. Right now it seems great so we will take advantage of it!!!
Today Auntie Jeanne came along down to visit with her new lab puppy. She also brought Gemma, Quincy's sister. I like Gemma, always have, so we played quite a bit in the lab pen.
Mom generally shuts the chickies into their pen on Friday night so we can have the lab pen without them for the weekend. Well, it was pouring last night so she didn't wait up for them to go to bed, she went to bed first. This morning she tried to get them all in with the promise of some cracked corn but only eleven of the twelve came.
Anyway, we all ran off to the lab pen and were having fun playing. Suddenly, Beanie discovered the chickie over in the corner...he woofed and chased her so of course we ALL got in on the chase. That hen was pretty fast and quickly outran us and hunkered down in a thick patch of blackberry bushes.
Now, I KNEW she was in there...I could smell her and I wanted her. All the other dogs went back to playing but I could not forget that chickie. I tried to squirm my way into those bushes but those prickers were about an inch long EACH and my coat and soft skin were no match for them. A couple of times I snuck out of the pen thru the missing slats on the stockade fence, but there was no way in to the chickie from the outside and Mom always discovered me out there and made me come back inside.
I now have to contend with just visions of fresh chickie in my dreams tonight, darn it all!!!
HEY, forgot to mention...Mom finally found a new home for Pixie, the mini poodle. Good thing, too, because she and I did not see eye to eye and were going to come to blows soon! I cannot believe she came into MY house and was trying to upsurp ME!!!!
Super new pics....
Perseverance pays off, Crystal! It got you onto Dogster, and I'm sure someday it will get you some chicken!!
