08/31/13 Hunting season

August 31st 2013 3:27 pm
[ View A Comments (5) ]

Hi pals,

When the humans were coming back from the local farmers market and were driving down the dirt/gravel road a momma deer crossed in front of the truck with a baby deer right behind her. Daddy went to continue on down the road but another baby deer came running out of the trees, crossed the road and followed momma and sibling. Both baby deer still had their spots but weren’t new born judging by their size.

Today in the local news there is an article stating that hunting season starts Sunday. It’s a good thing for these three deer that hunting of any type is prohibited in our development.

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose


08/30/13 I'm getting very tired of this...

Another day of thunderboomies: Boom, BOOM, B O O M!!!! And do you know what the worse part was? My Thunder shirt was in the washer so I couldn't wear it. When will it all end?

Daddy told momma that there is supposed to be a big storm coming and even parts of Colorado are expecting some snow. I sure hope


humans don't get caught in it.

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose


08/29/13 Another day of nothing

Hi Pals,

There is a new member of Dogster who could use some pals…


Nothing much going on down my way. The humans went to Zuni to get some lettuce for Arleenton but sadly the selection there wasn’t very good today. The Zuni market is a little Native Indian store that has a some of everything except their produce is often times sub-par. Today they were out of a lot of things but the big truck was at the side door bring in new items. Momma ended up buying a wilted head of lettuce and soaked it in ice water to bring it back to life.

We have been having more thunderboomies and I have been wearing my Thunder shirt a lot. With the tunderboomies there has been some rain, so once again it was a day of having to get feetsies washed. Somehow Puffy always ends up with muddy paws and I usually don’t but momma said she is tired of having dirt in her bed so we both have to have our paws washed. I tell you Puffy really cracks me up because the humans can see when his feet are muddy since he is white but now he has taken to coming in the door and rolling over onto his back so momma can easily see the bottom of his paws. I think he takes pride on having muddy feetsies.

Puffy has also taken to running when he sees one of the human’s approaches him with one of his wee-wee wraps – BOL, BOL. He doesn’t like them and has decided that he isn’t going to make putting one on him easy. Then when he is cornered he will roll over onto his back and becomes “dead weight”. The little guy really does have a warped sense of humor and is quite entertaining. After he gets his feetsies washed he runs through the house until he finds the “stuffie of the day” to play with. Then he runs and plays with his stuffie while sliding around on the floors with his wet feetsies. He really is one happy little guy.

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose


08/28/13 Another day, another bark

Hi pals,

Nothing much going on down here so I've taken to barking at daddy just for the fun of it. He doesn't like when I do that but I'm bored and need something to entertain myself with.

Daddy told momma that he has been finding some "big poop" close to the house and he is sure it isn't Puffy and mine. He suspects it is from the coyote that the humans saw roaming on our property.

Did I tell you that the rancher with the cows have been letting them roam free again? Yup, they have been down the road eating all the grass that is growing along the roadway. None of them have made their way up here yet because there is plenty of grass where they are at right now but once that is gone, I suspect we will be having visitors. I think I’ll get the BBQ grill ready – BOL, BOL.

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose


08/27/13 Visitors

Hi pals,

Yesterday there was a strange SUV at the end of the driveway just sitting there but didn't come up onto our property. Daddy was busy cutting baseboards in the garage/work shop and momma saw the SUV just by chance when she was cleaning out the kitchen sink.

When daddy came into the house momma told him about the SUV but it had left before daddy could go see if someone needed some help.

Today, the mystery SUV was back but this time they came up to the house and three men got out (Yes Zoe, we barked our heads off at them) and told daddy that they were from the New Mexico County assessors office and they were here to measure our buildings and property.

They measured and one of the peoples wanted to know what types of flooring and other things were in the house so daddy gave him a guided tour.

When they left, daddy wasn’t very happy so momma asked him what was bothering him. He said that the visitors are the peoples who decide how much property taxes one has to pay yearly. He said expect the tax bill to go up now that there is a finished building on the property.

I hope that doesn’t affect the amount of cookies I get.


08/24/13 The adventure of Coco Rose and Puff Darby

August 24th 2013 6:25 pm

This morning when we went outside to do our business, we picked up a scent of an animal that doesn’t live or belong on our property.

We were both sniffing the air trying to figure out what was making that unusual smell but no matter how hard we sniffed we couldn’t figure it out.

“Come on Puffy, let’s let our noses follow that smell and find out for ourselves what it is”.

“I don’t know if that’s such a good idea because momma keeps on telling us to be careful out here because there are things out here that would like to eat us”.

“Don’t be such a big baby. Come on, it will be fun and maybe we will even get a new friend”.

“Coco, I really don’t think this is such a good idea because we don’t have any idea what it is that we would be following”.

“Well I’m not afraid so you can come if you want or stay behind”, and with that, Coco turns abruptly and trots off letting here nose lead the way.

Oh dear: Coco is going to get into some trouble, I just know it so I I better drop my stuffy and go after her even though I know this is another one of her terrible ideas.

“Wait for me Coco! I’m coming too” shouts Puffy

Coco stops and starts digging through the front pocket on the hoodie she is wearing. Where is it? She paws around and finds four uneaten cookies, a duck strip, one Busy Bone and her cell phone. I need to call some of our pals to help me on this adventure.

Demon Flash Bandit

"Hi Demon, I could use your help on tracking down an intruder on our property. Can you come over right now and help Puffy and me follow the strange scent to see who is lurking around."

“Sorry Coco, but I just got invited over to McDonalds for a hamburger feast. Maybe next time, okay”?

“Sure Demon, I understand. I’ll let you go and we will talk again later. Have fun at McDonalds”.

The next call Coco makes is to


“Hi Frank, it’s Coco Rose here, do you have time to come over to Puffy and my place to help us track down an intruder on our property”?

“It’s nice to hear from you Coco, and I’m sorry that you caught me at a bad time but momma is busy taking photos of me on the new floor so I can’t leave right now. You know it isn’t a good idea for a little dog like yourself to go chasing after something that might hurt you. Why don’t you wait until after my momma is done and then I will be right over”?

“Thanks for your concern Frank, but I will make sure not to get too close to whatever it is and I will be okay”. “I’ll try calling some more of my pals and see if anyone else is available. It was nice talking with you.”

Coco speed dials


The call is answered with a recorded message stating that he is out camping and kayaking with his family and won’t be back until Tuesday so please leave you name and phone number along with a brief message and he will call you back. Coco leaves a message and hangs up.

By now Puffy has caught up with Coco and is huffing and panting.

“So, what are you doing Coco”?

“I was trying to call some of our big dog pals to come on this adventure with us but thus far, I haven’t had any luck. I sure wish




Were still here because they would love to go on this adventure with us.

Maybe I should call


and see if he can come out here with us". He isn't big but those Terriers aren't afraid of anything".

By now, the strange scent is vanishing and Coco’s tummy is rumbling.

“Oh never mind; Let’s go back home and get something to eat and then take a nap” Coco says. “I’m hungry and tired”.

With that, Coco heads back home with poor Puffy hobbling after her.

The End


08/23/13 I need some excitement

I spent Wednesday barking at the workers who came to install the garage door opener on the garage/workshop. They were here for hours so Puffy and I barked and barked and wouldn't stop even when momma yelled at us to SHUT UP! Really, if you're going to get rude why should I listen to you? Of course even had momma asked me nicely Puffy and I wouldn't stop anyways. Puffy is kind of funny because he always has to have the last word in. Just when you think he has finally stopped he will emit several more barks just for the fun of it. He cracks me up.

The humans have been working on the house but have made a lot of progress. Daddy got the guest bedroom all finished and also put down the base boards in the hallway. He has yet to do the base boards in the media room, bathrooms and kitchen. Momma says she is too old and worn out to be getting on her hands and knees to paint base boards and wants the whole thing finished.

The kitchen counter tops will be the last project and that should be interesting. Momma told me she thinks daddy won't get to them this year because the snows will be coming pretty soon and it is unlikely that daddy will go out in the cold and snowy weather to cut tile. Momma has been trying to press daddy to get the garage straightened out so the cars can be parked in there when the snows come but again, it is pretty unlikely that daddy will get to that either.

Well, that's it from me today.

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose


08/19/13 Please pass the Charmin

August 19th 2013 7:52 pm

I’ve been wondering why Charmin uses bears to advertise their toilet paper. Does anyone actually know a bear that cares about having a clean hinny? I on the other hand have been forced to use dirt which is very uncomfortable due to rocks, twigs, insect, thorns and other debris. Let me tell you accidentally sitting on a cactus while trying to clean the delicate hinny is not something I recommend.

Now that I’ve said this, would you please put down your cookies and pick up a pencil and write to Charmin and tell them that I should be the spokes person for their product. Make sure you mention that I have a really cute hinny – okay?

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose


08/13/13 Nothing much going on here

Hi pals,

We didn’t have a single Thunderboomie yesterday and boy am I happy! Here in New Mexico the weather can change quickly. Right now it is a lovely sunny day but there is no telling if the clouds will quickly come rolling in and if you will get rain, thunderboomies or just clouds.

Puffy and I are still being locked in the bedroom as the humans work on the house. I’m happy to report that all rooms have been painted. It’s a shame that the humans will forever have to repair cracks in the walls because the “handyman” and his crew did not do the seam mudding and tape correctly. Apparently they chose to save time and not use the tape so now major cracks are appearing in most of the walls and ceilings. Momma is going to work on one crack today in the living room that goes from the floor all the way up to the ceiling.

Puffy was doing better on not piddling in the house because the vet changed his medication dosage so he was allowed to wonder around without his wee-wee wrap on while in the house. Too bad for him that he piddled in the hallway and then left the lamb stuffie right where he piddled at, kind of like his calling card – BOL, BOL. It wasn’t hard for the humans to figure out who piddled – BOL, BOL. Someone should tell Puffy not to leave a stuffie by the piddle but I’m not going to do it because it would take away my entertainment.

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose


08/10/13 Daddy killed one of our neighbors yesterday

Yup, daddy killed a neighbor yesterday and I'm sitting here wondering if the police will figure out who "did the deed" and come and take my daddy away.

It was really an accident but I don't think there is a way the humans can prove it. Momma was there at the time but wasn't paying attention to what daddy was doing so she didn't see the killing

Here's what happened: The humans were coming back from Gallup and daddy was driving down the 8 mile dirt/gravel road towards home. All of a sudden daddy said "Did you see that snake in the road"? Momma had been looking to the right hand side out the passenger window so she said "What snake"? "The one that raised it's head and hissed right before I ran it over". "OMG! Is it dead or clinging to the underside of the truck"? Daddy looked into the rear view mirror and said "Dead! laying in the road". "Was it a Rattlesnake" asked momma? "I don't know and I'm not going to stop the truck to go over there and look".

So now all I can do is wait and see if someone comes to take my daddy away.

Coco Rose - sobbing her little heart out....
