This was my first Christmas celebration without my sister, Lucky. Even though she wasn’t physically with us, we could feel her presence. Her stocking was hung on the mantle, along with mine and my dads’.
I got all kinds of presents, including a down jacket and winter shoes for those cold winter walks. I had so much fun opening my gifts after my dads opened theirs. I’ve already sampled my treats and chewed on my squeaky toys. My dad, Kevin, even took me for a walk in the after-blizzard freezing temperatures.
I’m so happy to have a warm, loving home where I am treated like a king. I only wish all those poor homeless dogs and cats in shelters and living on the streets could have a home like mine.
I want to wish all my animal friends, and humans a warm and Merry Christmas. And a special loving Christmas to my sister, Lucky, up there over the rainbow!
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. My dads got up this morning to help prepare for the Thanksgiving feast, but I decided to stay in bed for a while. After all, I’m not much help cooking, but I am more than happy to help with the eating. I’m having my own turkey dog food for my Turkey Day dinner.
I hope all of my human friends have a wonderful Thanksgiving and the furry members of their families have a special treat to celebrate this day of sharing, and giving thanks for all we have.
My humans and I would like to wish all of our dog friends a very Happy National Dog Day. And I offer a very special wish to my little sister, Lucky, who I’m sure is celebrating on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge. I miss you, Lucky.
As we are all celebrating National Dog Day, I can’t help but think of all the dogs living in shelters or on the streets who have no families and nothing to celebrate. I’m sure there are families out there who don’t have a fur baby to celebrate with and share their love with. If you want a faithful companion who will love you unconditionally please think of expanding your family and adopting a shelter dog. You will be repaid with years of happiness and love.
At times I really miss my little sister, Lucky, but now I’m the top dog around our house. I must admit that Lucky was quite bossy and got on my nerves a lot. She hoarded all of our toys and tried to steal my snacks and she also wanted too much attention. Our dads couldn’t take us for a walk many times because Lucky barked at everyone and everything and was not at all behaved.
Now things are different. I’m much more relaxed. I can have all the toys to myself, but I don’t touch Lucky’s favorite toy, out of respect for her. I can eat my meals in peace and I don’t have any competition for snacks. I also don’t have any competition for attention. I get it all!
I also go for a walk every day, which I love so much that I want to go several times during the day. I go right to my leash and harness whenever I want to go for a walk. When I am walking with my dad I mind my own business and don’t bark at all. Whenever I meet another dog I don’t growl or bark, but simply do my sniffing to get to know them. I even wait until I get home to pee!
I get to visit the neighbors (for even more attention) with my dads and simply lay at their feet until they are ready to go home. However, when it gets near my bedtime, 9:30, I start getting antsy and want to go home.
Life is different and life is good. I’ll keep you all up to date on how I’m doing. Keep reading my blog, please.
Welcome to our birthday party. Eight years ago we were born into this world and 2 months later we joined our dads’ family as their favorite kids. I know we don’t look happy, but our dads make us wear these silly hats and pose for photos before we get to eat our cake. Little sister Lucky scarfed down her cake in no time, while Cato, the gentleman he is, took his time. As always we enjoyed our party and especially the cake and the treats. Wish you could have joined us. Thanks, Dads!
Hi! It’s me, Lucky. I have some news to share with everyone. I am becoming famous on Facebook.
My dads have purchased a Tovala oven and subscribed to the prepared meals to cook in the oven. My dad, Kevin, loves to cook and when he cooks the Tovala meals he takes pictures of them to share on Facebook. Every time he prepares a meal and takes a photo I’m naturally close by his side, in case a morsel of food falls on the floor. Unfortunately, that hasn’t happened yet.
People who see his posts and photos on Facebook have noticed that I’m in every photo. Some people were surprised when they noticed that my brother, Cato, photobombed the post because they thought I was the only dog, haha.
If you want to see one of the posts from my dad, here it is.
My dads thank Tovala for their oven and their meals.
Sometimes our humans try to sneak away and work in the front yard or talk with the neighbors across the street. They think we don’t know where they are, but nothing escapes our watchful eyes.
From this vantage point, we can see if there is anyone walking down the street or if the mailman is coming. If there’s a dog being walked or a delivery truck on the street we always sound the alarm. Our humans say we think we own the street and everyone has to ask our permission to walk down the street or welcome company into their homes. That’s not true, but it would be nice if it were. We may be cattle dogs, but we’re good watchdogs too!
It’s been a long time since we’ve posted anything on our blog and for that, we both apologize. The fact is that our human has been extremely lazy for quite a long time. You would think he would have much more time to help us write these posts since he and everyone else has been sheltering in place as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic. My other human dad is working from home so we get to spend a lot more time with both our dads. Our dad that helps with our blog has been spending his time writing his other blogs, which are about stuff like politics. We are not interested in that guy my human doesn’t like and blogs about, mainly because that guy doesn’t like dogs. After a whole day of whining from Cato, my human has agreed to start writing more for us on our blog. We hope he will keep his word and help us write more. If more people follow our blog I think he will write more. Please help us. See you soon we hope.
My human dad who helps us write this blog has been very lazy lately so we haven’t written any posts lately. We’re going to keep after him so we can share with you what we’re doing. The picture above shows us once again waiting for a treat One of my dads loves bananas and so do we. Lucky especially loves bananas, but she loves any kind of food, except for her dog food.
We had a very long and snowy winter and are happy that spring finally arrived and summer will begin soon. We always get yelled at during the springtime because we never wipe our muddy feet off when we go out in the rain to pee. My dad always cleans up after us though.
In February we had another birthday part and we’ll post a couple of pictures soon. We have to go out and play now since it stopped raining so we’ll be back soon
