I guess it's been awhile since Mom has had time to update my diary. Thank you to all my doggie pals for the awesome pirate flags--so cool! Mom is going to have to think back to all that has been happening since her last post. First of all, now that the weather is cooler my itching has stopped, plus my pills help. Mom was talking to her friend (who has my dog Mom) & said she gives her Aussie's Flaxseed. So now I take flaxseed for my dry, itchy skin. We have been camping for the last 3 weekends. Mom & Dad save all their vacation for Sept & Oct to go riding/camping with the horses. We usually go down to the horse camp on Thurs. morning & stay thru Sun. afternoon. Dad really likes his new Arabian horse & Mom said he is a real sweetheart & so easy to handle. He is camping very well on the hi-tie too. I never have to bark much at him as he is quiet. Now Mom's horse, I do have to bark at him because he likes to turn around on the hi-tie & scratch his butt on the hitching rail. I bark a lot at him for doing this because I know Mom doesn't like him to do it because it messes up his tail. Dad says he is just spoiled. Imagine that......one of Mom's animals spoiled???
Last weekend I guess I was kind of a stinker because I got in trouble several times. When Mom was walking me thru the horse camp (2 miles of horse camping) I would bark at the dogs that barked at me as we walked by. I just started doing this & Mom doesn't like it. I can't help it though because it annoys me when they bark at me first. I am bossy & think I need to get my 2 cents worth in. So needless to say, I got scolded numerous times on our walks thru camp. Plus some of Mom & Dad's friends camp to our campsite & brought their little Jack Russell, Dottie Mae, & their 1 yr old blue heeler dog. Mom made me stay in the back of the trailer while they were there because I don't like any dogs by my Weim sister, Wren. Mom said she was not dealing with any bad behavior from me so I sat in the back of the trailer & whined while they were there. Wren hadn't eaten all her dinner so Dottie Mae (the Jack Russell) finished it for her but Wren didn't care. She LOVES all dogs & will share her stuff. Mom says Wren is better "natured" than me. :-( I can't help it if I am bossy & don't like to share my stuff! I don't fuss with Wren or Louie-the hound at home, over food but no way would I let a strange dog eat my food. But Wren just doesn't seem to care--she would rather play than eat any time......not me.....I am all about the food!
We are heading back to the campground again this weekend. Dad is taking his Rocky Mtn mare this time because a friend is buying her. I will miss Dad's mare as she is nice & I can hang out in her stall & she doesn't care. But Mom said she will get a wonderful home & we will see her often in the future at the horse park. In fact, the lady friend that is buying Dad's mare ALWAYS brings special treats to the campground for me & Wren. We LOVE to see her come to our campsite & she gives us treats when we stop by her campsite as well. Hmmm.....nice lady!
Well bark at you all later......I am going to try my best to be good this weekend......Shelby

sounds like you will be having some fun these next few wwekends with camping and all. I might have to ask mom about that Flaxseed for me cause I have been itching and are very red on my belly now, do they sell it in pet stores and is it a pill? Thxs
