Hope all my dog pals on the east coast made it through storm Sandy & are safe & warm with their families. We watched all the devastation on TV & feel so bad for all those folks. Our thoughts & prayers are with them.
Let me tell you it has sure been boring around here all week! The weather has been cold & rainy! We even had ice pellets & hail yesterday! Mom & Dad cancelled Halloween weekend camping & also cancelled this weekend of camping because of the weather. Dad & Mom were off work on Fri so Dad washed the camper & winterized it while Mom unloaded all the stuff out of it. Then it was put in the barn for the winter. That's always sad as we know the riding/camping season is over. :-(
On Fri. I did get in some very serious trouble. Well both me & my Weim sister got into trouble. Dad was adding sawdust to the stalls so he didn't see what happened but he sure heard the fight. Me & Wren got into a fight, a REAL fight. When Dad heard it he came running & started yelling & kicking at us. Wren had a hold of the hair around my neck & Dad had a hard time getting us apart. Wow! Once he got us apart he slammed us both in opposite directions. I got a time out to the kennel & Wren had to go sit in the workshop room. Dad did check us both out to be sure there was no blood or punctures from teeth. Neither of us were hurt but we were both mad! When Mom came to the barn Dad told her about it so Mom went all over me again because with all my hair it might be hard to see if I had gotten hurt. Of course, Wren is short haired & easy to see if she had any bites. In the 5 yrs we have been together we have never got into a fight so Mom was very surprised. But Mom knows that when playing Wren gets very rough & will bite hard which makes me get mad when she hurts me. I was mad at Wren the rest of the day & wouldn't even look at her. Wren tried to get me to play with her & even brought one of my balls to me. But I turned my head & ignored her. I was also mad at Dad & wouldn't go to him. When I am mad---I am MAD! Mom brushed me for about an hr so that made me feel better but I still just hung with her. Mom also played ball with me for a long time as I still continued to ignore Wren. I am not sure when I will play with Wren again!!! In fact on Sun. I was still ignoring Wren. Mom played ball with me but I refused to join in with Wren & Louie as they wrestled around in the barn.
Oh yea, on Fri they started putting a new roof on our house. There were people everywhere & a lot of weird noises. Mom & Dad kept the horses up in the barn as the horses were very concerned about all the activity & noise. I went back & forth with Mom as she unloaded the camper & took stuff to the house, but I was not interested in the guys milling around roofing, but stayed close to Mom. Wren did run up to one of the men getting something from a van & scared him to death. Mom couldn't understand what he said, but let him know Wren was harmless & wouldn't hurt him. The man smiled & laughed because Wren startled him so I guess all was ok.
Well that's about all that happened around our place.......Bark at you later.......Shelby

ut oh, sorry that you both got into trouble, steer clear next time,
Hi Petey! I am still NOT playing with Wren, my Weim sister. Mom & Dad are starting to get concerned. I play ball every evening with Mom but totally ignore Wren even when she comes up to me--I turn my head away. Mom thinks it is because in playing Wren hurt me & it scared me. :-( Mom said Wren didn't mean to hurt me she just plays very rough.
