October started as a month with so much promise. We moved to a new neighborhood without thugs and plenty of squirrels to tree. I have managed to chase a couple of squirrels and even a deer or two. But it just seems the sad news won't stop coming. First we learned my big sis Terra isn't well and will soon be heading for the bridge and that has really bummed us all. But then we learned that we lost 2 of our dearest family members in the past week. Both of these pups were real oldies. My cousin Pooh went to the bridge last week and that just devastated us all. Pooh was 17.5 and she was the only female that could ever live with our Uncle Tom for more than a minute. That is quite an accomplishment and we bow our heads to your patience Miss Pooh. We know you are at the bridge shaking things up!
Then today my former mommy called to say that my former brother, Oscar had to go to the bridge. Oscar was also over 17 and that is really old for a weiner dog. He was a studly little thing and lived out his senior years as the Hugh Hefner of the family surrounded by young female pups! You go Oscar! I have bowed my head and asked for an easy transition for him as I know this is not going to be easy for Tammy and my skin sis Maleah. For that, my polky-dotted heart is breaking and I am asking for healing for both of them. I am also hoping Oscar found it in his heart to try to forgive me for trying to eat him when I was younger. I just didn't understand that he wasn't the cause of the baby crying. Please Oscar, don't let there be hard feelings and please don't tell Jesus when you see him. I have tried really hard to change and only nibble my brother Sid from time to time. So when you see Jesus, tell him I have changed and I ask you to forgive me. Just know I will miss your bossy, mouthy, little self and hope you and Pooh stir things up at the Bridge. I know you will be there with open paws to greet Terra in the near future, but until then enjoy your young hips, because I think you still have short legs!
Love and Kisses,

Yep Dogster Pals - You got it right!! I've been wrongly accused! I admit I am a girl with an appetite. So I may be carrying around an extra pound or 10. That's no secret to anyone. So, yesterday the mom laid her rice cake on the counter to go outside and do something. Well everyone knows what a counter-surfer I am! That's not news to a single soul and especially not to my pal ROCKY at the bridge or GUS or any other spotted pal. Stealing food is a specialty of the dal population. But even a dal has to have some standards and well even we aren't going to eat a darn rice cake. So the mom came in feeling all silly cause she left a rice cake in my reach and it was gone. Well I wasn't talking. All she could imagine was these are organic, brown rice cakes and I'll be stinking up the place with the farts later. As if!! So imagine mom's shock when she realized the darn rice cake was right where she left it. She just didn't remember where she left it was all. And what is worse? She caught me in the back yard later eating turds. Now she knows, I won't eat her rice cakes, but I will eat turds. Hmmmmmmmmmm, think about that the next time you get a big kiss in the face. So now mom knows why I can't lose weight. I've been supplementing my diet. It seems I like my food just as well the second time as I did the first. Oh well, there are slim pickings now cuz the dad was out scooping the yard bright and early this morning. And then the mom cut my food a 1/4 of a cup tonight and supplemented it with baby carrots. Now we're talking. I like baby carrots, but she's got to keep those darn rice cakes. I'm not sure what the point is with those darn things. Finally something a dal won't eat.
So I've been tagged. Yep, let me see, who has tagged me. I can't honestly believe this game is still going and yet poor Niquel just got it this morning. We've been hit so many times that we quit tagging back. BOL So, I've been tagged by the following: MAGGIE; REAGLE BEAGLE and ALOHA so as you can see, I have been tagged and tagged again.
So my 7 interesting facts are as follows:
1. I was born in Alabama and spent the first 3 years of my life there! That is why my eye-liner is dark and I won't pee in the rain! I am a southern girl and a diva. Get over it ya'll!
2. I was adopted within the family by the yankee branch. I am very loved and still get to visit with my former family. I have the best of both worlds, except my new mom makes me watch my diet and exercise. Must be a northern thing. Southern girls aren't meant to perspire sweetheart.
3. I can play rough when I want to!
4. I am not particularly fond of Sidney.
5. I am VERY fond of Rocky!! :)
6. Did I mention I love food and love to counter-surf! Oh yes! Food Rocks! I'll take that over anything else in the world, any day of the week!
7. I fart! And I'm proud of it! I have a special bowl to make me eat slower, so I don't get as much gas. What the heck is that all about?
So this is my turn at being tagged. I won't be posting again, even if I am tagged another 50 times. I may bite you and take your treats though! BOL
Have a Happy Independence Day and Welcome Home John Matthew! We are so glad to have you back stateside you handsome devildog you!
Peace out and polky-dotted love to all and especially Suzy!

Happy Valentine's Day to all of my Pals! You are each very special to me! Today is a cold and frosty Valentine's day in the big MD. We had some fun snow to play in yesterday. That was a blast. Rocky and I went outside and rolled around and played and had so much fun. But then things got ugly. All of a sudden our snow was taken over by a freak of nature called sleet and then freezing rain! That stuff is no fun I tell you! It isn't soft and fluffy like snow. You can't roll around in it. And it is so much more cold. YUCK AND DOUBLE YUCK! Not only did it ruin our fun snow, but now every thing is all frozen and you have to walk like a penguin out there, so you don't fall on your butt. It is no fun at all. No way was I going outside to pee in that stuff. Mom put some orange smelling wax stuff, on all of our paws to protect them from the ice and from slipping. Yet, another indignity of sleet and freezing rain! See, I always knew no good could come from rain. So, our beautiful snow is now disguised by this layer of frozen stuff. Even the mom doesn't sink in it. So, what's a doggy to do for fun?
Well I guess we can be thankful that the mom is working from home today and she can open the door and close the door and open the door and close the door so we can go in and out a million times. Woo-hoo!! And yes, there is always nap and bark at the neighbors who are trying to shovel their walks and thaw their cars. Even our front screen was frozen shut. So, here it is Valentine's day and I get to huddle in doors with the big handsome hunk of Rocky! Isn't he a handsome dog? Every girl should be so lucky, but back off girls, I am a scrapper! So I am going to try to keep warm in doors with him and see if I can steal a treat or two. I managed to steal a couple of cheese-filled jalapenos the other night. I was looking for the cheese sticks and these weren't exactly what I expected, but hey, beggars can't be choosey and thieves have to snatch and run. BOL
And, I hear there is to be a party today with my sweet friends at T.S. Boyd Elementary. Sure wish I was there to steal their treats. I would snatch their bags and bury my head up to my shoulders until it is empty. And then on to the next. I would have a grand ol' time eating my way through all the treats. Or I would give them my sad face, until they feel sorry for me and give them up to me. So, what do you say kids? Can a polky-dot get a break? How bout a treat? Puh-lease!!!!!!!! I do wish I was there to share in your party and get some luv and give a whole lot more!!! I also wish I was there to put Ervin in check! Yeah, I know Ervin was hatin' on me, cuz I love the first graders and represent for them; but what's he got for me, but a bunch of whining? Did he send me a letter? Check the pile, do you see one from him? Nope, I haven't felt ANY love coming from his direction? All the love from him goes to the smelly bulldogs, and all cuz he can't get a date! BOL I would have thrown a few pieces of candy his way, but all he does is diss on me. I mean, what's up with that? Now his little baby brother, that's a different story. He's one cool little dude. And his little baby brother is sooooooooooo cute. And so smart and just sure to be a fan of mine, instead of a hater. So, when you boys and girls see Ervin, make sure and tell him to quit the Hatin'. Valentine's Day is all about Showin Some Luv! And remember this:
Rose are Red
Violets are Blue
Your Bulldogs are Smelly
You Know that it is True!
But your Polky-dot is cute and cuddly
And loves you. Really I do!
I also love belly-rubs and food and treats, no doubt.
But most of all, I love my friends at T.S. Boyd Elementary cuz your just so cool! (Wish Ervin Was)
And I would also love for my friend JASMINE to find her forever home!! So, please think about showing some luv to JASMINE this Valentine's Day by giving her a forever and ever home!!
Polky-dotted love to all!
Show some luv Ervin and Stop the Playa Hatin'! Don't hate the playa, hate the game!
