Yes it's peaceful here again. A little boring perhaps, but peaceful!! Daddy doesn't yell so much on the morning walks and we get to stay out longer and sniff and play with the bus kids. Mommy walks us at night and again we get to stay longer and sniff around more and chase rabbits in the field. There are no big dog fights anymore.....which I sorta enjoyed but got in trouble for. I hope the sun comes out soon and stays out so everyone feels better and we can go back to the dog park and our walks thru Mainstrasse. I miss that.
Daddy says his girl is coming this weekend and bringing her Chhhihihihiua (however thats said) Is that one of those little TINY dogs...OMG!! This should be interesting. :))

 

The truth....

I'm a dog, I speak dog...I act dog...and I FEEL dog!! WE are pack animals...theres reasons from way way back that Blitz wasn't welcome to our pack....Spencer and I spent a few of our younger years here as the only two dogs...we bow easily to other humans coming in to the pack, our boys we see a few times a year...the girl that flys in and out the front door and then theres Mommy and Daddy...the AlPha's...we have our places with them. We have our places with each other....Daddy is the alpha male...Mommy is the alpha female...I am the QUEEN and Spencer is the Court Jester ... theres no more room for another clown and I won't stand for a uppity young King in our midst. Yes, he was fun...and I'd begun to tolerate him becuz Spencer was sorting him out.....or was he sorting Spencer out. Who knows!! Mommy and Daddy didn't let it get that far.
I think we all just like the status quo right now. We'll miss you Blitz, we hope you find your niche, and mostly we hope Mommy doesn't bring anyone else in for a long long time....unless he's old like Henry the Golden and could care less about anything!! Henry was cool......instead of fostering and adopting...could we just babysit now and then Mom?????

 

...the ongoing saga of the white dog

Where do I begin telling you all how miserable my life is these days.....between this nasty weather and this crazy white puppy I think I'm going crazy!! I will say that he's quit messing with me so much, he only bugs me when Mom pets me now....I growl, Mom growls and he goes away and picks on somebody else. Good thing too cuz I'd take him down if he got in the way of Mom and I. Heaven knows he gets plenty of attention without horning in on "my time".
Oh we did bad bad things the other day....I was just sooooo frustrated and I couldn't help myself....the white dog ran away from Mommy in the field of snow...he went behind these HUGE houses and ran around thier ponds and porches....Mommy was soooo mad...but he looked so happy that I ran off too and joined him, it was his sniffing around that intrigued me....there had to be so many goooooooooood things up there in those fancy houses. Mom says we looked like a bunch of ragamuffin thieves, three dogs and Mommy in her "doggin"clothes....she wasn't happy at all. I came back to her when I heard how upset she was....but that white dog just kept going and going and going....she finally caught him inside someones screened in porch...how embarrased she was. Only Spencer was good that day!! She finally let us off our leashes again in the little field away from the houses....I'd like to say that I was a good girl then but I saw the golf course up the hill and there were squirrels everywhere.....so off I went.....just me this time....and I caught one of those little devils running from tree to tree....I kept picking it up and letting it go so it could run somemore...but it kept struggling and well...finally it just quit trying to run....I nosed it a few times but well...it went to sleep or something.....I felt really bad.....and when Spencer got to me he was scared of it, so we let Mommy catch us. Mommy mustve felt horrible about the squirrel cuz she sat down and cried in the snow. I think I did something really bad. Or maybe it was that the white dog did something while we were busy...yah thats it...he pulled her arm outta it's socket trying to join me in my chase....yah thats it!! Poooooooor Mommy, we all used to be so well behaved!!
