10/26/13 Lazy day

October 26th 2013 7:54 pm
[ View A Comments (4) ]

We spent the day doing NOTHING. Yup. Puffy and I made ourselves comfortable on the big bed and watched the birds, chipmunks and other critters eat the seeds and bread that momma put out for them. We even had a domestic dog come by and piddle on one of our trees. Momma didn't have her shoes on and by the time she found a pair and went outside to capture the dog, it was gone. Momma doesn't think it belonged to anyone because it hadn't been neutered and was looking kind of thin. According to one of the long time residents that live in our community, it is common practice for people to drive by and dump their unwanted animals here. Momma looked all over for the wayward dog but couldn't find it. With winter fast approaching and the nights and early mornings getting cold, it would be more humane for the dog to be taken to the animal shelter than to let it freeze or starve to death.

Daddy popped his toe back into the socket and it is looking much better. He is going to work on the fence for a bit tomorrow but this time momma is going to be outside holding the latter for him - BOL.

Maybe having a fenced courtyard will reduce the number of feetsie washes Puffy and I have to have after it rains. Today, we each had our feet washed three times and one of those times, my feetsies weren't even THAT muddy, but Puffy's were another matter all together. Ole Puffy seems to take great pride in walking in the mud - BOL.

Oh, and talking about Puffy, he got caught digging in a bag of garbage that momma had sitting outside. Since we don't have garbage pick-up where we are at, all garbage is placed in the hauling trailer and then when it's full, or if daddy needs the trailer to haul something, then daddy takes the trailer to Zuni to the transfer station (garbage collection site). Anyhow, the trailer was sitting in an area where shoes would be necessary and since momma didn't have any on, again, she put the filled garbage bag on top of some boxes that needed to be broken down and put into the trailer. When she opened the front door to let Puffy and I back inside, there was Puffy caught with his snout right in the ripped bag of garbage - BOL. Momma wasn't too very happy when she had to go pick up all the garbage that was scattered around but like always, he somehow managed not to get in trouble.

Hugs and kisses,

Morning pals,

How about a heart warming start to your day? Each day momma logs onto the Freekibble site to help them raise food pet food for various causes. In order to donate 10 pieces of kibble you have to answer a quiz question, although it doesn’t matter if you get the answer right or wrong, because they will still donate the 10 pieces of kibble. Anyhow, this morning’s question was about Jack who saved his kitty pal:

Pitt Bull saves kitty

Now wasn’t that a good start to your morning?

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose

 

10/24/13 Winter is coming

Hi pals,

Daddy was working on the back half of our courtyard enclose when the latter he was standing on tipped over and he fell down. He got a dislocated toe, a sore ankle and some minor scrapes. He was very lucky that the big post that he was putting up didn't fall down on top of him or else he could have been seriously injured. He says he isn't going to work on the courtyard fence for the rest of the week as he needs to "recover". Then too, we are expecting a big storm to come through tomorrow and the following day so he wouldn't be able to work outside anyways - BOL.

Daddy did manage to install the poles for the laundry line but momma made it known that she has no intention of hanging laundry outside in the snow - BOL.

Puffy is still having issues walking because the knee cap popped out of place again (don't send any POTP because this is a on going condition that will never go away). He doesn't appear to be in pain because he is running and playing even though his hind leg is dragging from time to time.

Anyhow, that's it for now because I better go outside and do my business now before it starts to rain.

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose

 

10/20/13 Oh dear...

When will momma ever learn? Daddy has told her time and time again DO NOT DOWNLOAD ANYTHING ONTO YOUR COMPUTER, so what did momma do? Yup, she downloaded several programs trying to fix the issues she was having with using the IMIKIMI site. The good news was that she was able to finally get the pictures she wanted made on the IMIKIMI site but in the process, she messed up the programs on her computer.

Momma spent all morning trying to resolve everything without having to tell daddy that she once again messed up her computer but she finally had to bite the bullet and go confess to daddy and ask him if he would fix her computer again. Of course she did this after she baked a pie and served him lunch while he was watching a football game on the big screen projection - BOL.

The good news is that daddy got momma's computer running again but now the IMIKIMI site won't let momma download photos and all of our videos on the Dogster site no longer play.

I think daddy is going to be mad when momma give him back her computer and tells him it isn't working right - BOL.

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose

 

10/19/13 Momma needs computer help

Hi pals,

I need some computer advice; well actually momma needs the help. We use the IMIKIMI site to make our memorial picture frames for our pals but all of a sudden, when we go there we can not download our pictures onto their frames. We get a transparent box stating we need to upgrade to the free plug in that they offer. Momma did this today but it didn’t help anything.

As of right now, we can not make any memorial picture frames so we hope everyone stays healthy until someone can help us resolve this matter. Momma did contact the help person at the site and they stated it was most likely the result of the browser that we are using.

Have any of our pals experienced this problem and if so, what did you do to fix it? Momma was going to ask daddy to look into this but he is cranky today so she is trying not to bother him – BOL.

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose

 

10/18/13 Organice treats

Hi pals,

Daddy has gotten ½ of the courtyard fenced off and I do not like the results. I can no longer go and forage for deer, elk, and bunny dropping in the front of the property. If I get desperate for these lovely organic treats, I can always crawl under the fence as there are several places where this is an option, but really, should a Princess be required to crawl under a fence? I think not!. Big mouth momma pointed this discrepancy out to daddy but he says Puffy and I are too lazy to crawl under a fence unless there is someone on the other side and Puffy decides to go bite their ankles – BOL. Anyhow, momma and daddy are trying to come up with ways to make it impossible for us to go under the gate. What a bunch of spoil sports! Maybe since I am no longer allowed to go get my own organic treats the humans will be kind enough to go get them for me: it’s the least they can do, don’t you think?

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose

 

10/17/13 Holiday cards

October 17th 2013 8:45 am
[ View A Comments (5) ]

Yes pals, momma is getting out the envelopes and addressing them so that they will be ready for mailings come the day after Thanksgiving. What you ask is momma addressing…why our holiday cards of course.

For those of you, who have been receiving these yearly cards from us, if you would prefer NOT to have them or have moved, please paw mail momma and she will make the necessary changes otherwise you will be getting one as you are already on the list.

Now for new pals or pals who have not given us your mailing address, we would really love to send you one of our holiday cards so if you would like to receive one, please paw mail momma with your full name (last name included) and address so momma can pick out a holiday card just for you.

We promise not to give out your personal information to anyone and should you desire NOT to receive cards from us at any time, a simple paw mail to momma asking her to remove you from our card list will stop further mailings.

And what do you have to do in return to get a card? Well Puffy would love a truck load of new stuffies and of course I would be more than happy with different cookies, but momma says the cards are sent with love and we do NOT expect or require anything from you so forget about the stuffies and cookies. All we want is to put a smile on your face and let you know that we are very happy to have you as a pal.

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose and Puffy

 

10/14/13 Momma did a bad thing

October 14th 2013 8:31 pm

Hi pups,

Momma has been enjoying feeding all the different birds that have been coming around so tonight after dinner there were several left over corn muffins that she took and tossed on the ground by the trees that are outside our bedroom window.

So what’s bad about that? I’ll tell you, it attracted one or more local skunks. Yupper, ole stinky came around and left its perfume right outside our French door. Puffy and I wanted to go and say hello but momma won’t let us. She said something about not wanting us to get sprayed.

Daddy worked on the fence for the court yard today and got some of the posts up. He is moving very slow so we suspect it won’t get finished until maybe late next week so Puffy and I still have time to go find the skunk and see if it wants to be pals with us.

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose

 

10/11/13 The BIG storm

October 11th 2013 12:02 pm
[ View A Comments (8) ]

Hi pals,

We had a big storm blow through yesterday morning. The sky had very black clouds forming and were coming our way when we woke up. Puffy and I hurried outside and did our business and then went back inside for a morning snack. Around 7AM mother nature started blowing strong wind and then decide that wasn’t enough and added rain, hail, sleet and cold temperatures. We were all waiting to see if there was going to be some snow but it didn’t.

Something happened to cause the electricity to go away so we had no TV, internet, lights, water and any of the other modern conveniences that we are used to. In late afternoon daddy got in the truck and drove down to the cluster mailboxes and someone there told him that the windstorm took out the electricity in Zuni, Ramah and some other areas. We were all left in the dark. It finally was restored around 1AM this morning.

Today it is nice and sunny but there is ice all over the place. This is a bad situation because somehow Puffy found some and again threw out his knee cap. He is in pain so momma put him back on the human grade pain medication. The vet told momma this is going to be a chronic condition because surgery can’t be performed on Puffy so each time the knee cap gets popped out, the only thing we can do is medicate him. He had been doing so well, running and playing and it looked like he had recovered. Momma once again wrapped his leg to stabilize the knee and he has been sleeping. I wanted too play with him but momma said “NO” and put Puffy in a crate so I couldn’t jump on him. His leg isn’t all twisted this time so hopefully he will recover quickly with his pain medication and some rest.

I would also like to say THANK YOU for the support and loving words you sent me with the passing of Arleenton, my bunny sister. Puffy and I have enjoyed sharing Arleenton with you but now it is time for her to hop free at the Rainbow Bridge.

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose

 

10/09/13 Arleenton became an Angel today

Pups, today, Arleenton my bunny sister passed away. She was 12 years old and most bunnies don’t live that long. What happened remains unknown as she appeared to be just fine right before we left for California but when we returned and picked her up from boarding at the vet, she was very lethargic. The people at the vet’s office loved her and gave her lots of attention but momma noticed that Arleenton had become nothing but skin and bones and didn’t even want to come out of her cage to play with me.

Momma gave Arleenton her favorite baby food and she did eat a tiny bit but she refused all other foods including fresh greens and fruits. She even refused the salted crackers that she always loved.

Bunnies being prey animals tend to hide their illness so that they don’t appear to be weak. We had a lot of mosquitoes here the last couple of months and they carry a nasty viral disease called Myxomatosis that is always fatal in rabbits. Once the rabbit is bitten, death comes quickly.

Puffy and I got to pay our last respects to her and then Daddy dug a hole right next to where Bay-Ling is buried after which we had a nice grave side service for her.

May she rest in peace and I look forward to being reunited with her someday to resume our feisty tag games. I’m really going to miss my little bunny sister as I loved her a whole lot.
