How could the humans put me in jail? I’m royalty you know. It all started early Tuesday morning when they got up before the roosters and loaded up the truck. Simba was put in a medium size carrier and Arleenton was in a tiny one. Puffy and I were forced to ride on a tiny section of the floor behind the front seats. The ride to the vet’s office takes about 75 minutes and before I even had a chance to sniff around, I was taken back behind the doors that no one ever sees what happens. I’ll tell you there were lots of crying dogs and cats begging and pleading to be let go.
Puffy and I were shoved into one jail cell together, while Simba and Arleenton occupied a jail cell of their own. Momma had packed lots of food and treats for each of us along with two stuffies for Puffy and me.
Puffy cried and cried because he thought he was being re-homed again. Me, I just sat there and asked “okay, where are my cookies?” All wouldn’t have been that bad except for I had to have a pedicure and the hair removed from my ears. I don’t like either procedure but after wards, I once again asked “WHERE ARE MY COOKIES?”
Things were a little rougher for Puffy. He is still having problems with the thyroid medication getting it adjusted right so he had to have his blood tested, he was due for a booster shot and he too got a pedicure.
Today the humans came and bailed us out of jail and boy were we happy to see them. In fact, Puffy was so happy to see daddy that he went running towards him (he was on a leash), and right as he came out of the door to the exam room, he was attacked by a huge brown dog. Yes, the dog tried to kill my furbrother. The vet technician who was bringing Puffy out pulled him back by the leash and Puffy scrunched down so the big dog just barely missed grabbing him by the neck. Puffy was so frightened that he peed. The technician took Puffy back into the back and had the vet check Puffy over to make sure he wasn’t hurt. The man who had the two huge brown dogs was elderly and was having issues controlling the dogs because they were too much for him to handle. Momma missed the whole thing because she was putting our stuff in the truck while daddy was collecting us. Puffy was now covered in dirt and pee and had to ride in the truck that way, but at least he wasn’t covered in blood and had no injuries.
Everything was actually pretty good and the people at the vet office really like Arleenton because they hardly ever have a rabbit to look after, especially one who eats baby food - BOL. Simba Blue was unhappy the whole time but it was nice having him there with us.
I heard the humans drove to California for the wedding, then came back through Arizona and daddy decided he wanted to go see Durango Colorado. They drove by the Four Corners monument but due to the Government shut down it was closed. Daddy did a lot of driving this week.
And when I logged onto Dogster I discovered our Dogster Plus membership has gone away. Momma sent a check to Dogster before it was due to expire, but since the old membership was done by Pay Pal when they (Pay Pal) went to automatically renew the membership they discovered that momma had canceled her credit cards so they canceled her subscription. Needless to say momma sent the Dogster team an email asking them to fix everything and to please restore the photos.
It’s good to be home: I need a much needed nap and several cookies now.
Hugs and kisses,
Wow! You survived!
Hey, your pawrents went through Cortez, CO. That's where My farm is, north of town.
And Mommy says they didn't miss much at the 4 Corners. Coulda got sum fry bread!
Yup, daddy drove through Cortez last night and it looks quite nice. Your going to love it there! It's actually about 3.5 hours from where we live and both areas are so different. Your area is greener with more natural water from rivers and streams. A very nice area. Where we are, it is pretty dry and more desert. Also, our shopping isn't as nice are what you have. We'll have to get together...
MMMMmmmm. This Pacific North West human miss some good fry bread!
Oh my Princess! I am soo glad you are home and safe.
Misty - lots of fry bread to be had everywhere one looks. In fact it is easier to find in New Mexico because there is no regulations controlling who can set up shop and sell it from the side of the road.
Hobo - it was terrible! No soft bed to lay my head on; no belly rubs; no endless supplies of cookies to munch on. After Puffy got attacked momma forgot to ask if we behaved and just hurried and got us into the truck so we could go home. She even forgot to get the two stuffies that Puffy took to the vet with him. I'm just so happy to be back home...
We are happy you are back home also. Very happy that Puffy is all right and that you all survived your ordeal. Hugs and now you should have lots of cookies.
'Scuse me, pweeze : Whut da heck r fwy bwead??
SO gwad yu r ok, Puff! Gud gwief! Whut r gonna habben nexx?? Dat r one ob dose whetowical quesshuns - no answer r wequired!
'Cept dis r Coco Wose's diawy! *blushes*
Zaidie, fwy bwead, I mean fry bread is the most delish thing you can eat in Indian country. It's sort of like a flour tortilla only deep fried with cinnamon sugar on top. It gets all puffy and crispy. They also have fry bread tacos. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. Link below.
It's sure good to hear that evfurrybody is back home and safe.
Wait-- No belly rubs???!!! NEVFUR let your pawrents send you to that place again! HRUMPPPHHHH!
OK, we're looking up Fry Bread! Glad you are back safe and sound. Make sure you get lots of cookies and belly rubs!
All dis fry bread talk are making me hungry!
In Gallup, there is no other place to board pets. We only have one grooming place and that is just a house with a sign in the window stating that they do dog grooming. Momma looked up PetVac to see if anyone close to us did dog boarding and as of yet, no one has signed up. Momma is considering registering as a "host" once the courtyard is fenced in so dogs don't wonder off and get lost. She says she has to do some research into it before she decides if we will "host" other pets.
You can find Fry bread all over the place down here, even people selling it from their cars off the side of the road. Not all fry bread is the same so sometimes you have a very tasty treat and other times it's terrible. One of the first things the humans tried was a Navajo taco (fry bread wrapped around a hamburger patty)and it was so greasy that both humans said they felt their hearts clog and tossed theirs out and wouldn't even give Puffy and me a taste. Daddy's handyman told him that everyone has their own spin on how to make fry bread so you just have to keep trying it until you find one that you like.
Hmmmm...Well, fank yu fur dis bery imformatib wessun, pupses! Sounds 'lishus, 'speshully da gweesy MEATZ™ one!
