Life as a ranch doggie

Well we been here at the ranch by Calero Lake for four months now...and I still can not get these big ole livestock kinda guys to respect me. The Alpaca and the Llama literally look DOWN at me...Bid Daddy, the ram from the sheep flock, tries to head butt me through the fence! Even Mr. Cluck the rooster tries to get in my face...

I tell you what, it will wear a doggie out laying down the paw law with all these critters...but they gonna learn I am the boss!

Okay, so I'm 25 lbs and the llama's probably about 800....but I'm a terrier, I can handle this!!

OMD...when Cindy went on vacation, and me n' Ellie went to Miz Cathy's for our doggie sleepover, MOUSIES got in our house! So now me n' Ellie are on max alert. We is both really good vermin dogs and sometimes we kinda get in each other's way cuz we are both after the same mouse, but we get em. And Cindy puts glue traps down where we can not go but we ALWAYS, ALWAYS let her know when she's got one. It is a total team effort now and we have declared war on the vermin. Cindy was even talking about getting a cat but we think we got it covered. In two weeks we have gotten over 10 mousies. And I am even patrolling outside too. This would never have happened if we coulda stayed home while she was gone. Oh well, now we have fun hunting to do!

Remember that Cindy's using glue cards to catch the mousies BEFORE you pounce on them.

Dog muzzle + glue board = bad

 

Time changed!

This whole changing the clock thing kinda puzzles me...and honestly I don't think the humans deal with it real well, but I do like having the sun come up earlier and having more light for our morning walk.

 

Thank you to our veteran dogs!

To all the military working dogs out there fighting for us, fighting to protect us, to help their soldier handlers...thank you. You are strong and brave and a true inspiration to human and dog. 21 Bark Salute!!!

Hey, that wasn't so bad...we were out for a car ride for many hours yesterday, we got to go walkies at the big mall under the covered parking lot, and we even got to go to Petco. Cindy bought all kindsa emergency stuff too...and then we got home and had the power on again!

Bow wow wow...that was funny.

 

DNA testing?

Well apparently my Auntie Helena musta been feeling inspired or something...she went and had DNA testing done on her two dogs and I guess the results were kinda fascinating...they have a colorful past...anyway she convinced Cindy we should do it on me.

But you know...it only goes back to my grandparents. I think maybe my past is kinda complicated cuz no one can figure out my unique combination of traits...BOL.

My Auntie Linda came up with a whole new breed name for me...G.O.K....God Only Knows...I kinda like that!

And Auntie Pat calls me a Legless Wonder cuz I can walk faster than three Keeshonds! (including my pack sis Ellie).

BOL...I like the names my Aunties make up!

But Cindy swabbed my cheeks with those mini pipe cleaner things and mailed them off to the vet lab today.

Guess we hear something in about three weeks. Better not mess with my Happy New Year...

 

Friday at the Rainbow Bridge

I think Dec 14th was a terrible day...even at the Rainbow Bridge...imagine, 26 people suddenly arrive. But their dogs are all still on earth. This can not be, it is not supposed to happen...doggers wait at the Bridge for their people so they can cross the Rainbow Bridge together. Now here are 20 children and 6 grown up folks, and no one to greet them...but wait...I know...dogs and puppies came running from the Meadow of the Strays and Lost Puppies, the canines who died without homes...I can just see them running, especially the puppies, leaping and dancing and tails wagging and lavishing kisses on the humans...and giving them a dog to hug and hold.
Rest in Peace dear people, your are missed and mourned by canine and human alike.

 

Christmas at home was wonderful

You know, humans are really funny...Sunday and Monday, Cindy got all kindsa messages and phone calls from her human friends who were worried about her cuz our plans for a road trip to Reno got snowed out...they were all worried about her not having anywhere to be on Christmas....

Not having anywhere to be??? Are they not paying attention? Me n' Ellie were dancing around all day, especially when she put our Christmas Stockings up by the tree, and then we got our prime rib supper (we only get that on very special days)...and then Cindy went to church to sing with her group for Christmas eve...me n' Ellie can't go inside with her for that but we know it always makes her happy, so we try to wait patiently.

But boy oh boy oh boy when it's time for presents we just can't help hopping around.

I ran from one side of the house to the other with my dinosaur, and we had treats...

Cindy was right where she wanted to be for Christmas, with me n' Ellie!

 

My DNA results

Well...I guess this is official...

According to the DNA testing done at Mars Veterinary, my heritage is four breeds (Cindy said this surprised her cuz she figured I really WAS Heinz 57...)

Two big surprises...no terrier...but my temperament is well substantiated by the DNA findings...Llahsa Apso, Miniature Poodle, Dachshund, and Mastiff.

Yup. One one side of my family tree was the Llahsa and Min Poodle, the other side was Dachshund and Mastiff....um...um...that side of the family tree seemed to stimulate a lotta discussion at the vet clinic. I just figured I had a very, very ambitious grandpa doggie.
