I was lucky enough to have the camera handy to snap a photo of the very talented Scooter sitting on a tree branch right next to the surprised squirrel. Of course Scooter fell out of the tree shortly thereafter, but that's another story altogether.
The photo has been posted on my page.

We have been having different "neighbors" stop by to feast at our house. There have been woodpeckers who are very entertaining the way they run up and down the trunks of the trees; finches, ravens, Western Tanager, sparrows, Hawks, a pretty blue bird and some other bird with bright red feather on it's chest but gray on it's back. Today I saw the fat squirrel, two Chipmunks and one mouse. When the humans went to town today momma bought some bird seeds and will be putting some out tomorrow. I'm still watching for the flock of wild turkeys in hope that they come onto our property because there is room for several of them in our freezer - BOL, BOL.
We still haven't seen the skunk that left it's calling card the other day but I guess that's good because I really don't want a bath right now anyways.
Momma is concerned about the wide gap under the gate on the fence that daddy just put up. It is wide enough to allow a coyote access into our courtyard and that defeats the whole purpose of having the area fenced.
I'm still limping around after my ole knee cap popped out again (don't send me any POTP as this is a recurring owie that I'm just going to have to learn to live with). When my knee is hurting I don't play with my stuffies and growl at Coco to tell her that I don't want to play with her either, but she ignores me and so I have to resort to running to momma to get away from crazy Coco. I tell you she is so bossy but I love her anyways.

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

OMD – guess what we saw today? A herd of deer grazing at on someone’s property right by the cattle ranch: and a whole flock of wild turkeys. Toto, hurry up and come over here and you can have a grand ole time chasing and eating wild turkeys. They were all quite large and I’m sure one would fill your tummy nicely. If there is any other pups out there that would like to join us on a wild turkey hunt just come on over.
For those of you who would rather not have to pluck feathers, we have also had several squirrels hanging around and one of them is quite plump. There have also been lots of field rabbits and jack rabbits about.
For those who want a real challenge there are always the elk and deer but I suggest you team up with others in order to be successful in capturing your dinner. Everyone is welcome to stay here and hunt for as long as you like.

Hey Coco! Guess who Dogster chose to be one of the diaries featured today? ME!!!!! I've been featured so many times that I'm pretty certain my Dogster honors have out grown yours.
"Don't gloat too much because you haven't gotten the highest Dogster honor and that is Dog of the Week, and I did, so there!"
Anyhow pals, I know you all love me but once again I request that you do not spend your Dogster Zealies to buyme rosettes because as stated the last time I was chosen, that the holidays are coming so save them and get me some new stuffies...
"You can't buy stuffies using the Dogster Zealies so you might as well stop HINTING for your pals to get you new stuffies."
"Well you should be able to buy stuffies and Forever Angel wings with Dogster Zealies...I'm just saying..."

Once again Dogster featured my diary to be featured today. I am so honored and still request that you do not send me a rosette but save them up so you can send me a really nice Christmas stuffie shortly.
Yes pups, Christmas is going to be here before you know it so you better be on good behavior so the ole fat man in red doesn't add your name to the "Naughty" list.
And I can't think of a better way to make him happy then to send me some new stuffies. You know the humans have a saying "It's better to give than to receive" so I'm quite sure sending me some new stuffies would fit the bill.
If you need my address just paw mail me - BOL, BOL

I am home trying to forget what happened to me today at the vet's office. When momma and daddy came to get Coco and the rest of the pack out of jail, a very nasty dog attacked me.
It all happened so quickly...I was being led out from one of the exam rooms and right outside the door is a scale used for weighing large dogs. There was an elderly man with two huge brown dogs. One was an over weight Boxer and the other looked like a Ridgeback but didn't have ridges on it's back so I'm not sure what it was.
All I know is that I saw daddy standing there and was so happy that I jumped up and went running out of the room towards daddy. The vet assistant had me on a leash and was holding on to it, but the elderly man couldn't control the big brown dog and it attacked me.
Right in front of everyone, it tried to kill me. It went for my neck and I peed and scrunched down so that it couldn't get me. The vet technician pulled be back by the leash and took me back into the back for the vet to check me over. My joy at seeing my daddy was cut short.
When momma found out what happened (she had been out at the truck putting in the extra food that they didn't use while we stayed there), and she nearly died. Coco and I had to have a bath when we got home to make sure we didn't bring home any bugs, but momma had to wash the pee and dirt off of me from the attack.
I'm now trying to forget the whole ordeal.
Cooper my pal, we are experiencing so issues with our Dogster Plus membership and we can not post the latest picture frame that you made for me. Momma has contacted Dogster and hopes to have everything resolved shortly. It will then get posted. Thank you like always for taking the time to make it for me. You and your pack are the BEST!

Momma had to wash everything on the big bed today because there was a “wet” spot that soaked through the quilt, electric blanket and down to the fitted sheet. Why is she giving ME funny looks? You know it could have been the “Princess”. All I’m going to say is that’s what you get for locking us up in the bedroom lately.

Daddy called the rental place where he rented the mini excavator early this morning and told them that he was unable to return the equipment as promised because it was stuck and would not move. They said it sounded like the motor had burned out and they would send someone to come get it.
We waited and waited and finally after lunch Coco and I decided to take a nap. When we woke up it was almost 3PM and still the excavator was right where it was yesterday. Daddy informed momma that the repair people had called and told him they would be here shortly but since we are out in the rural areas their idea or shortly and ours are two different things so we hopped in the car and momma drove down to the cluster mailboxes to get our mail, then we headed back home. The repair people didn't show up until almost 4PM. They tried and tried to get the excavator un-stuck but it was no use. Finally they unhitched the trailer that was attached to their truck and drove the truck behind the garage/workshop and pulled the excavator out from behind the building to the front on our graveled driveway. While the younger man was attached the trailer back onto the truck, the older man was trying and trying to get the stuck wheel track to move by shifting and messing around with the operating gears. I have to tell you that Coco and I barked and barked the whole time they were here - BOL.
Anyhow, somehow the older man succeeded in un-sticking the wheel track and was able to drive the excavator onto the trailer that they brought with them. He told daddy that this isn't the first time this excavator has experienced frozen tracks. Turns out the problem is the bearing and the last time this happened he replaced the bearing on the right wheel track but now he needs to do the same thing on the left side.
So, tomorrow the humans have to go to Gallup to return the trailer that came with the excavator when they rented it. Momma is actually happy that daddy doesn't have to haul the heavy machine hack to town because daddy's truck had a hard time with the weight.
Coco and I will be looking forward to having a nice quite day without any noise.
PS - I posted a photo on my page of the stuck excavator.

Well the excavator remains stuck and broken in our back yard. It's not going to budge and that's that. Daddy called the rental company and described to them what was going on with the excavator and they said it sounded like a motor issue and that they would send someone out here to "walk" the excavator out. This piece of equipment is very heavy and where it is stuck at probably won't allow a tow truck in to move it. I foresee another day of barking, barking and more barking once the rental people arrive.
I'm off to park my little white behind by the French door windows so I can see everything that happens.
