Well, it's February. February is a month of change, I hear. Winter is pretty much still in the middle, BUT, that sun IS warmer and feels good on my black body when I am outside in the cold, blowing February wind, unlike in December when it is dark much earlier!
First of all, GOOD news...for some reason, after almost 8 years, (my birthday is the first week in March, BOL!), I am suddenly eating everything I can find that is edible. Mom always feeds us in our crates and normally, the first thing I do is dump my dish of food to sort thru and find anything good she may have put in there. OR, find any pills or other nasty stuff that might be hidden in the good stuff! Then, I stare at it until she lets us out. If I am really starving the next morning I may eat a bite or two, but never all of it, even though she only gives me a small amount.
As for treats and the like, after about four years I decided I might eat a bit of string cheese while Mom is training me, but NOTHING else passes my lips. I will take a piece of whatever Mom is handing out, but I only take it to be polite. Mom NEVER lets me have anything in the bedroom anymore after she found all those pieces of soggy popcorn hidden under her blankie, hehehe!
Well, about three weeks ago Mom realized she no longer had to vacuum all that stale dog food out of my crate everyday. First she assumed the others were eating it, then she noticed I was getting pretty heavy, in fact, for the first time in my life my spine bones are not jabbing her when she pats me.
Then, she noticed I was racing into my crate at dinner time... and, eating every single piece of my dog food without even dumping it!! And, those biscuits she hands out... I am gobbling mine right up. Tonight she even caught me stealing some bread off the table. I WAS hungry!
Tonight she weighed me. I am now 23 lbs, up from the 17 I have been for the last 6 years.
Mom has no idea why I am suddenly eating... neither do I, BOL!
In other GOOD news... I have been invited to the Annual Pigskin 5K this year. It is on Sunday and I will be accompanying Julia as Crystal, who went with her last year, will be going along with Scott this year. The only problem is that the only t-shirts Momsie found with the Patriots on them are pink... I do not think so!!!! Mom's gonna look for some tomorrow when she goes shopping in the nearby bigger town with Gemma and Lolas Mom. Yes, Gemma and Lola are coming for another visit... two weeks this time, I guess. I LOVE Lola and she loves me so I am looking forward to our visit!
Finally, the BAD... One of the chickies died last night. It was the old lady that we got first so Mom wasn't too surprised. The problem was, I saw her out there with my perfect night vision when Mom put us out for last outs last night. It was obvious she was dead, and it was obvious I should have been allowed to dispose of her body, at least obvious to ME! I ran and ran and ran along the fence, trying and trying to find a way to get in there and get her but I couldn't! I dreamed about her all night long and first thing this morning I raced out to see if I could get her with better light to see by. NOPE, I ran and ran and ran along that fence but couldn't find any way in. Finally, Mom dragged me back inside.
The next time I went out that chickie was gone. I can't believe she is gone and I keep telling Mom I need to go out to make sure!!! I would certainly have helped dispose of her if Mom had let me!!
And, now, the UGLY... Mom, for some reason, shaved off Beanie's mousietache yesterday. OMD, is he ever ugly now. His nose is way, way too short. Must be why he had a mousietache in the first place, huh? I hope she doesn't take any photos of him until it grows back, hehehe!
