Daddy is sleeping in the big bed right now because he is tired. The train leaving Gallup, New Mexico was 2 and a half hours late so instead of arriving in Riverside, California at 6:00AM he didn't get in until almost 8:30am. Too bad momma was at the train station at 6:00AM to pick daddy up - BOL, BOL. Momma knew the train was late but their schedule said that often times the trains make up for delays by traveling faster on the tracks and that the estimate time of arrival was 7:23AM. Since momma didn't know where the train station was and what time it was actually going to arrive she went early and then tried to nap in the car but couldn't. Coco and I were forced to stay at home because momma didn't know how long of a wait there was going to be and since it is really hot down our way right momma didn't think being stuck in a hot car would be very good for us.
"Daddy brought me four new stuffies..."
"Puffy, how many stuffies did daddy give you?"
"No Puffy. You and Coco each got ONE new stuffie and the tiny stuffies are for the kitties."
"Let's face it momma,I'm going to take all of the stuffies and that's just the way it is."
"No! You get one only."

When you chase bunnies they drop yummy treats behind for you to eat? It's true because Arleenton has been rewarding Coco and me with some bunny drops when we chase her - BOL, BOL
Arleenton is venturing further away from her cage during play time and even went under the love seat. Coco and I play with her as much as possible and I think she is enjoying the exercise.
Today I laid down in the living room while Arleenton was out hopping around and she came up to me and sniffed me all over and just when she thought it was safe, I jumped up and chased her again - BOL, BOL.
Momma gave Arleenton a cracker in her cage and I took it and ate it so then momma gave her another cracker and a pita chip but put them on the far side of Arleenton's cage. I tried and tried to get those treats but momma was watching me so I had to be a good boy but let me tell you if momma leaves the cage door open I'm going to take those treats the minute I can.

Today momma gave Arleenton a pita chip in her cage. When momma opened the cage door to let Arleenton hop around I couldn't help myself and I stuck my head in her cage, took her pita chip and ate it - BOL. I sat right by her cage so she could see me enjoying it but truth be told, I don't like pita chips I only did that because it was Arleentons - BOL, BOL.
When Arleenton did come out of her cage she hopped over to Coco and sniffed her all over. Coco was laying down on the dining room rug guarding her cookie so she didn't get up to chase the bunny but I sure did! We did a couple of laps around the dining room table before she went back in her cage.
I'm really enjoying playing with the bunny.

There nothing much going on here except that momma has been packing stuff up and get this, she’s using Coco’s and my stuffies to help cushion the boxes that have here carnival glass in them so they don’t break during the moving process. This is a very good example as to why one can never have too many stuffies – BOL, BOL.
Arleenton has been allowed to hop in the house and I am very happy to make sure she uses that time to hop as fast as she can during our games of tag. She doesn’t appear to be afraid of us and momma keeps telling us if we stop chasing Arleenton she will come up to us but Coco and I are having too much fun playing with her to stop. Momma didn’t get a photo of me in Arleenton’s cage because the camera was in a different room and she didn’t want to allow me to stay in the bunny cage because she didn’t actually know if I would try to hurt Arleenton so she told me to get out of it, and I did. I haven’t bothered to go back inside again even though momma now has the camera close by just in case. Arleenton hasn’t ventured too far from her cage she is mostly hopping under the dining room table and ventures a little into the living room.
Things in New Mexico are moving right along. The cement pads for both the house and garage/workshop have been poured. It took 2 days and 11 cement trucks to bring all the cement. On Monday the builders are supposed to start putting up the garage/workshop and they say it will only take three day. The house is supposed to take 6 days. Daddy might come home next weekend but isn’t sure because momma really wants someone there to make sure the builders use the materials they are supposed to in the build of the house as it gets really cold where we are in New Mexico so the humans are having really thick insulation put in the house and momma is concerned if daddy isn’t there the builders might use a less desirable product.
Daddy said he saw a herd of elk by our New Mexico property and that the male deer are now sprouting antlers. After mating season is over Coco and I will look around for some antlers for Zoe. Momma would like to find a nice rack of antlers to mount on the wall but says she will send our pals any broken pieces we find.
Daddy drove out to Albuquerque today to pick up one of the permits needed for next week’s build. He said it takes a little over two hours to get there and that they have lots of places to do shopping at.
One of the things momma has been concerned about is how she is going to move the fish tank and all of her fish. She bought a battery operated air pump so the fish can make the ten hour journey from California to New Mexico. While daddy was out today he stopped in Grant and did shopping at Wal-Mart and they had tropical fish so she can get some there if hers don’t survive.
Well, that’s it for me because I need to go check to see if my bunny wants to play some more.

This afternoon momma opened Arleenton's cage door so she could come out and hop around a bit. Arleenton took one look at Coco and me and and layed down in her cage so momma walked over to the phone and called daddy and proceeded to yap with him for a bit. Apparently Arleenton decided she did want to come out so she hopped about and Coco and I chased her all around the table but this time when she jumped back into her cage I went in with her - BOL, BOL. Momma turned around and there I was in the bunny cage sniffing around with Arleenton looking at me and thumping her feet. Needless to say momma told me to get out of there and being a good little boy I did as told but I didn't see any sign posted on Arleenton's cage that said NO DOGS ALLOWED so why did I have to get out?

I had been outside with momma and Coco but when they came back into the house I followed them. Momma called daddy using the speaker phone that is mounted on the wall in our kitchen and was talking to him so I walked into the kitchen nook, lifted my leg and piddled on the planter that is sitting on the floor. How was I supposed to know that momma was watching me the whole time and all of a sudden she is yelling at me: "PUFFY!!! PUT YOUR LEG DOWN RIGHT NOW. YOU BETTER NOT PEE ON MY PLANT."
Too late, I already piddled - HeHeHe. Momma was yelling and carrying on like I had done something really terrible and made Coco and me go back outside plus she told daddy what had happened (she still has not told him about the bed incident and let's not remind her about it either).
Anyhow, what good does it do to make me go outside after I've already piddled in the house? Of course I don't still need to go to the potty so why does momma continue to banish me outside after I no longer have to go?
When I was allowed back inside, I tried to tell momma that I was reminding her to water her plant but she was being very unreasonable about the whole thing. The least she could have done was thanked me for it, and that's all I have to say about the whole thing!

After that incident the other day where I left "presents" on the big bed to show my displeasure with having to sleep without my momma, I still had big bed priviliges. That's right pals, I was back up on the big bed and everything was normal except now if momma is going to be gone a while she makes Coco and me get off the big bed so there will be no "presents" when she gets back.
This morning momma had a doctor's appointment and I was still sleeping on the big bed and didn't want to get off. I gave momma my pretty sad eyes and told her that I would be good, just let me continue sleeping where I was, but NOOOOOO, she grabbed me and put me on the floor. How Rude!
Then later today after the mailman delivered the mail momma had to go to the post office and send some stuff to daddy in New Mexico but Coco and I were snoozing on the big bed so momma again made us get off - How rude AGAIN!

Last night we were all up on the big bed but momma was having problems sleeping so in the middle of the night she let Coco and me go outside to do our business and when we came back inside we were again allowed up on the nice comfy big bed. Momma tossed and turned and finally turned off TV and left the room leaving Coco, Simba and me to sleep on the big bed.
Momma went into the sewing room and played games on her computer and then went to sleep on the daybed.
I have to tell you I did not agree with this sleeping arrangement and made sure momma knew I had been displeased by pooping and peeing on the big bed. Yup, that’s right; I’m not even going to deny it this time. As soon as momma got up this morning and came to let up outside she smelled and saw the “presents” I left for her.
She didn’t blame Simba or Coco: instead she immediately said “OH PUFFY!” like my name was etched into that pile of poop. I looked momma right in the eyes and my tail was wagging as fast as it could go as I smiled my biggest smile and said “Happy good morning to you momma. I missed you!”
Momma picked Coco up and put her on the floor and then did the same to me and took us to the sliding back door and asked us if we had to go potty. I stood my ground and continued to smile at her and said “Thank you but no, I’ve already gone” – HeHeHeHe
Momma washed all the bedding today so we will have a nice clean bed to sleep or potty on later tonight.

Well this really stinks. I got pupnapped and taken to the vampire vet who took some of my blood without even asking my permission. Coco didn’t go with me instead she stayed home and chomped away on a brand new 3” Busy Bone while I was having my blood sucked out of my body.
When we were leaving the vets office momma bought me a new blue monkey stuffie and I felt so special until she picked up a green one for Coco. WHAT!!? She didn’t get her blood sucked out so why is she getting something? Momma looked at me and told me that when Coco goes to the vet and gets a new stuffie we always get me one too so it is only fair, so she claims.
When we got home Coco was still chomping on her Busy Bone so when she finally pigged out and was down to the last 1 inch or so left she went to get some water and that’s when I made my move. I not only took her green monkey I also took the remainder of that Busy Bone and when she got back she looked and looked all over for it and then she spotted me with my lips wrapped around her Busy Bone but it was too late as I hurried and finished it off – BOL, BOL You know I usually don’t take Coco’s treats from her but this was an emergency as I had to replenish my energy from the loss of blood, I hope she understands that.
And why did I take her green monkey? Because I wanted too, that’s why – BOL, BOL

It’s funny how fast the weather changes sometimes. We have had some overcast skies with a bit of drizzle a few weeks ago and now, it is hot and muggy. The temperature today was 102 degrees and I was panting so momma with her questionable wisdom decided it would be a good time to give me a haircut and bath.
All I was doing was minding my own business on the big bed, not bothering anyone when all of a sudden momma picked me up and put me on the bathroom counter, took the clippers and started cutting off my hair. Thankfully she left my face alone but she did cut off some of my pretty tail plume because of tangles. After the horror of having myself clipped and scissored I was plopped into the tub which was already filled with water. It was here that I was soaped up and scrubbed down even though I don’t think I needed to be.
Coco ran for the hills when she saw what was happening and afterwards when I was dried off and returned to the big bed I waited for momma to do the same treatment to Coco but it didn’t happen. I don’t mean to talk ill of my fursister but she certainly doesn’t smell anything like a rose right at the moment if you get my drift.
When daddy called to night I heard momma telling him that tomorrow Coco will get a haircut and bath, but don’t tell her, that can be our little secret.
