Hey Guys, long time no write. It has been a busy summer. Today is my birthday. Now that I am 6 I thought I'd better get back in the swing of things and not just catch the ball, catch the ball, catch the ball.
Who am I kidding. I'm always going to be a puppy. But I'm very saddened because my Grammie who lived upstairs and played with me almost every night can no longer live with us. Grammie fell and broke her hip over a month ago and then while in rehab fell and broke her other hip just 2 weeks ago. Poor Grammie. So Mom gave us the sad news yesterday that she would not be coming back here. Because Mom works Grammie has to go live in a memory care unit where she will be safe.
Mom visits her every night after work so Priscilla is more than a little upset that our dinner is later than usual. You know that girl and her stomach.
Mom's biggest concern is to find a great place for Mom and she doesn't know what to do with her two 15 year old cats. Mom would love to have them live with us but Priscilla has an issue with that and we scare the bejezzers out of them. They are way laid back.
Have a fun day - I bet Mom is going to get me a new ball.

What a beautiful day. The sun is shining on us and Mom is home all day.
Mom was cutting the grass out front and a car parked in front of the house had 3 cats in it. It's kind of a warm day and there was a litter box and food in the back and it was parked under a shady tree and the windows were partly open and Mom checked and it wasn't hot in there but it didn't look like there was much water in the bowl. The cats did not look like they were in distress but Mom was still concerned. This car had never parked here before. There was a woman cleaning up a yard across the street for someone so Mom thought she might be the owner of the car. Mom really doesn't like to interfere but when it's critters she does. It was the woman's car and she thanked Mom for coming to talk to her rather than calling someone on her. She said she was watching for when the sun came out. Mom told her she was just a little concerned because it didn't look like there was much water in the bowl. It turns out the woman didn't want to put too much water in the bowl because it might leak into the cage below with the guinea pig in there. Then she told Mom they were all living in the car right now. That is very sad.
Mom told us we should thank our lucky stars that we are well fed and looked after. It would be horrible living in a car. We will pray that their situation changes.

Big excitement in the back yard tonight. There was a panther in the neighbors yard right on the other side of my fence. Well I sounded the alarm and that creature hissed at me but stood his ground. I was impressed that he dared stand up to me. Mom says my 18 pounds can be fierce. Then she starts laughing. You underestimate me woman. Well Mom says I was making way too much noise and she came and picked me up and took me in the house. How embarrassing. Would Hercules mother drag him into the house when he was defending his territory?
So I was ever vigilant watching the grounds from inside the house. Would you believe it, the creature was now on the overhang of the dog kennel attached to the garage. Then I got a good look at the "creature". It was black and white which raised a bit of a fear but I quickly surmised it wasn't a skunk. Just a sassy black and white cat from across the street. But, it could have been a panther.
What an adventure. I will surely sleep the sleep of the brave tonight.
This hero thing can be taxing, but the women (Priscilla and Mom) are safe.
