Wow! It's been a long time since I wrote.
Earlier this month, Momma took us camping. It was all the way in North Carlina at this place called 4 Paws Kingdom. We had to ride all day with our seat belts on. When we got almost there, it started raining so hard Momma had to pull over, but by the time we got there, it was only raining just a tiny bit. It was really cool place: woods and fields and streams to sniff around, a cabin with a fenced front porch to sleep in, and - would ya believe: no kids allowed! My kinda place for sure!
Raoudi liked wading in the pond and the stream. Momma wanted me to, too, but I said H-E-Double-Hockey-Sticks NOOOOoo. What, you think I'd get wet on purpose? Anyway, I got to run around a bunch of parks without a leash, and smell a bunch of new smells and bark at sounds I never heard before. Momma said it was crickets and frogs.
Since it was the middle of the week, we almost had the place to ourselves. The staff all called us well-behaved. I was bummed we only got to stay three days, but Momma promises we'll go back.
Then we went to see Reece and his pawrents and his brother and sister. They treated us like they were really glad to have us there, and let us on the furniture and had agility stuff in the back yard, and we had three humans to pet us instead of just one.
We did three days of agility. Momma said I did a good, good job, but I wasn't very fast sometimes, so Momma got a chiropractor to look at me. She said my chest was whopsided to the right and my tail to the left and my mid-back was locked up. After that I ran faster, but Momma messed me up not signaling some turns and crossing in the wrong place and pulling me off stuff. I'd have had my MAD if Momma had told me there was a turn coming and not to go in that tunnel my nose was pointed right at {{SIGH}}. Reece is getting really good: he got his Starter Jumpers title and his first Snooker leg - Momma says he's another Snooker Scnauzer like me and Raou.
Reece's Mom and ad took us out on their boat, but we had to wear life jackets, and Momma expected me to swim. Good greif, woman, do you really want to drown me? Reece swam and even went to sleep on a raft, the little dare devil.
Momma's been workin a lot since we got back. I went to the vet and got my back X-rayed like the chiropractor suggested, but it was just fine. They cleaned my toothers and stole some of them
It's so had here I haven't wanted to do much outside. Mom says no more agility until September, and it's too hot to practice in the yard more than a few minutes, even when it's hardly even light outside yet.
That darn Diamond and Dubby who kept taking my fox both got adopted, so now I can play "Gimme that" with Mom in peace at least.
Mom, when can we go back to the No Kids Allowed place?



A very good barkday

Last week Momma got us a teeter of our very own for the yard. Raoudi said it was his, but I told him it was my 10th barkday comin up so it must be for me, but he could use it, cause he's not so good at the teeter in competition sometimes. Anyway, we've both had fun with it and got lotsa treats.
Tonight when Momma got home, she took me and just me to Nashville Pet Products. They always give us treats, but when I asked if I could have one extra for my birthday, they let me stick my nose in the treat bag and grab a mouthfull before Momma could say no.
She bought me and just me a vanilla rawhide. I've got it up her on the couch with me. I'm about tired of chewin it, and I kinda want a drink, but Raoudi's tryin to get it, so I can't put it down. Momma said somethin about 'the little boy who stuck his finger in the dyke' that I don't get - all I know is nobody better try to stick a finger or a claw on my goodie.



The Cold Weather Crazies

It's been below freezing for days now, and only expected to get worse. Tonight it's gonna snow - not much compared to a lot of places like Mini-Snowdah where our bud Ernie George and Shadow Bear live, but this is Nashville, where a single flake can produce a riot over bread and milk at Kroger.

Mean Momma makes us go out when we wake her in the pre-dawn hours (there are a lot of those these days, it seems) but our foster brother, Klaus-The-Twerp, screeches so that Momma lets us back in after a couple of minutes.

Momma says she can't get any peace to do her work for Klaus galloping around, tossing toys for himself to chase, foster sis Princess carrying off her shoes and everything else to her crate, and even Raoudi and I are acting nutso.

I can't find my beloved Red Fox, and Princess has my Hedgie Hog, so last night I got the big, big Hedgie (it used to have a Santa hat, and it's almost as big as Klaus!) and taunted Momma with it. She
gave chase, and we had a fine game of "Gimme THAT", ending with her tickling my belly on the couch, while Raoudi and Klaus tried to jump in from either side. I used to always love to get my belly tickled when I was little, and would kick my legs like pistons as long as she would do it, but usually don't want to play it so much any more - I had forgotten how much Momma loves that game.

Raoudi said his back was itchy from the dry air and was wallowing around on his back in the floor like he was trying to break dance. Klaus jumped on him and Raou retracted then pushed up with all four of his legs, sending Klaus flying up in the air! Then Raou jumped up and started jumping back and forth from the couch to the chair, with Klaus nipping at him from below every time he jumped.

She was trying to type on the 'puter this morning and when she turned around in the desk chair for a minute, I leapt into her lap, and Klaus tried to put his feet up on the chair to nip at my butt, and sent us spinning round and round.

Momma says it's "Cold Weather Crazies" and vows we're gonna play outside when she gets home and burn off some energy if it kills her. If we get enough snow, she may get to take a vacation day, and says we're gonna go on a snow walk if she does. I don't think we've gone on a snow walk since Syd was alive. Those boots Shadow Bear wears are starting not to look so bad.
