Boy oh boy, we went out for a walk last night and SNOW..It was beautiful though, the only problem is when it freezes!! Mom does not like taking walks on the ice even with her ice crawlers on.
There are sure a lot of birds outside, Dad feedshem and they keep coming back.
Got in a lot of trouble last night. Those pesky deer were right outside the back door, so I was barking…… I got yelled at, the deer left, I think they are scared of me, and then Mr. Raccoon came. I do not like Mr. Raccoon, but he is a little better than Mr, Possum. Mr. Possum stinks. I don’t know whey but boy oh boy P.UUUUUUU does he ever stink. So I barked enough that Mr.Raccoon left and then Mr. Possum left Finally!!! So I was juuuuuust getting comfortable on Mom’s lap and I thought I heard something so I leaped off Mom’s lap, whatever it was it was going to get a barking to from me…..
I get to the door and it was exactly what I thought!! There wasn’t one or two, or nooooooo there were THREE bunny rabbits out there. THREE!!!!! I don’t know what it is, but I can’t stand Bunny Rabbits the most! BOY did I ever give them a barking too. That’s when I really got in trouble. Mom put the collar on me that sprays citronella when I bark AND she didn’t take it off right away…I was hoping nobody I knew was going to see me in that electric blue collar with the box on It around my neck.
We went to bed a little later and I was fine......... Till the middle of the night, the reason I know that is when I started to bark, Mom said. Rocky don’t you know it’s the middle of the night, why are you barking? Then she heard what I had heard. (Dogs have terrific hearing, did you know that?) It was Boots next door barking his head off. So I kept barking. BOY was that the wrong thing to do, I had the spend the rest of the night in my kennel, covered on the top and sides with a blanket.
Mom was really upset……
I am going to pray really really hard tonight and ask God to not let me bark I LOVE sleeping on the floor next to Mom and Dad.

It's been awhile since I last wrote, Mom has been really busy and winter sure doesnt seem to want to leave.
We had Easter and it was nice, but a lot of snow. Dad was doing a roast on the barbque, he sure had a heck of a time, but Mom said it was delicious!! She made a key lime pie for dessert, boy it smelled good.
I have a new pupper cousin. Her name is Molly and she joins Mike and the other ones. She lives with Mom's baby brother Bob. He is married to Pammy and I am sure I have told you about them before.
Saw pictures of Miss Molly and she is gorgeous. Can't wait to meet her, I think she is my age so we are both about 1 1/2 years old. Mom says she is probably better than me.
I got in lots of trouble last night. First, the deer came when Mom was trying to relax and I barked up a storm. They were standing right outside the kitchen door for heavens sake!! This is my house!!! Dad and Mom were having a ball watching them. They finally took off and we just settled back down and I knew something was going on, so I took a look and there were raccoons out there. Soo off I went again barking furiously how dare they!@!
Well Mom and Dad got upset again. Finally we went to bed and it was bout 10 pm I woke Mom up barking at 11:30 cause the dog next door was barking his head off outside and I figured if he was barking out there, SOMETHING was going on, so I barked. Mom got kind of upset. I finally calmed down and it was fine, then it happened again, Mom said, ROCKY its 3 am. QUIET, of course I could hear the dog next door again, so off I went. Then.... oh woe is me....... I got banned to "my house", the kennel in the kitchen. Its ok, but its not next to Mom and Dad. I went back to sleeep and really soon Mom came back down the hall, fed me and took me out. She said, its only 4am Rocky you should be ashamed, I missed a few hours of sleep because of you.
I don't know why she was upset, I felt fine. When we came in I headed for the couch and went back to sleep.
I think Mom might be still a little angry,but she will be fine.
Mom and Dad went to bed at 10:00 and I was sleeping on my pillow on the floor.

Well Mom decided I had to get my nails cut again, but this time she was going to do it . Actually she isn't too bad. She said if we had cement streets she wouldn't have to trim them, I would wear them down.
It's still really cold and we still get snow off and on and its still icy out. I can't wait till I can go for a long walk outside and PLAY.
Mom has a green wreath on the door and green funny hats on some of the chairs. Mom says St. Patricks Day is just around the corner...... HUH????
Who or what is St. Patrick and why is everything green?
And then Mom says Easter is coming?? Ok, I'll bite, what the heck is Easter??
She told me that spring was coming a long time ago, but I think she was wrong cause it doesn't look like spring right now. But the strange thing is the birds are back. Mom says look rock, there are dark eyed junco's, bluejays, robins, lots of woodpeckers, goldfinches starting to turn back to yellow, house finches starting to get more rose, pretty soon if its like last year the Ruby breasted groesbeak will be here with the Baltimore Oriole.
Mom sure is smart. I didn't know all those names.
Got to go, Dad needs help hammering and then we go to the store.
