Happy Thanksgiving!

How are you doing? I hope you had a very wonderful and happy Thanksgiving! It's really nice here. We had steady rain for the past few days. For some odd reason that makes the humans really happy. Not me! But, yesterday it broke for a bit and the sun came out and we all went for a nice walk. Not that I don't get to walk when it's raining but I don't like it much. In fact, yesterday, mama and her sister were driving the big horses in the pouring rain and I was out with them. It was fun to run and I enjoyed riding in the cart too but who doesn't prefer doing that on a nice warm sunny day? Did you eat lots? We had a our main meal at lunchtime. Mama ate too much as did everyone else and they're stuffed. I helped a bit and then we ate again and now they're overstuffed! I could eat more though. And I'm not talking about dog food, I mean more of that yummy feast that was on the table! Mama's head is doing a bit better after her latest (and hopefully last) concussion but she has to double check my blogs. In fact, since her bad brainwaves send weird vibes into mine, I'm not entirely sure of what I'm writing. So, I check over what I've written, I have mama check it, and then we call Kermit over to check over it too! Triple checked. That should do it! hehe I know I'm a day late but Happy Thanksgiving! I am thankful for all of my friends both on here and at home. One can not have too many! Leaving a vote of thanks for being such a good friend. P.S. I made a Thanksgiving slideshow. It's up on DC if you'd like to see it.

How are you doing? I hope you enjoyed a nice long weekend. I've been meaning to stop by but I haven't been on DC much lately. I've been busy keeping the squirrels in order, playing with Kermit, the usual stuff. And what has mama been doing? Well, she's been hitting her head! Perhaps she was trying to knock some sense into it. Doesn't seem to have worked though. Anyway, in July she went head over heels from her bike and somersaulted onto her head. That concussion affected her for a couple of weeks. And then last month she did the same thing from horseback! She was jumping Prince and he landed and turned into a bucking bronco. She wasn't prepared and off she went. She was knocked out for about half an hour and is slowly getting back to normal from that brain injury. So, what have you been up to? I hope nothing as exciting as around here. Do you remember Acorn? She's the baby squirrel we rescued last year. Well, yesterday was her 1st anniversary of us finding her. We're so happy she made it through the first year and that I haven't eaten her yet. If you want to visit her (she loves dogs) check out her page on the SAC 188686. I hope you're all doing okay. It's great to be back on DC though I won't be blogging quite as often as I would like. Mama is behind on so much and her brain still isn't quite up to par. (When was it? hehe) So, here's a vote and enjoy the rest of your week.

Happy Mothers' Day!

How are you doing? I hope that your mama had a very happy Mothers' day yesterday. Did you know that it was the day you have to give her twice as many kisses? Yep, I already filled my quota but I may have a few more to give her tonight before we go to bed. I've been busy having fun. Chasing the big horses while mama rides, going on long bike rides, hiking, and keeping all the critters in line. It's a hard job but somebody's got to do it! And just in case I'm not getting enough exercise mama got me a lure coursing machine. Well, actually a friend gave it to us. It's a used one and it looks complicated. Mama is going to have to take some time to figure it out and set it up but it smells like fun. And it goes different speeds too so the little dogs might also enjoy it. I'm sure that Kermit will chase it. Tuna won't notice that it's there, Mouse will look at it like, "And the point is…?!" Sven will chase it 3 steps and then he'll give up. Well, that's my prediction anyway. Oh, I almost forgot. hehe Sorry, I can't help but chuckle. A few days ago mama and a friend were driving Pippin and a part of the harness broke. They were cantering and suddenly the cart came loose and up into the air went the shafts and their feet! hehe haha They were both lying on their backs in the cart with their feet waving in the air. They weren't hurt and mama was still holding the reins so that Pippin wouldn't panic and bolt. Mama was taking photos at the time but I sure wish she had been filming. She almost did but changed her mind. Can you imagine how great that footage would have been? I was rolling around the road in fits of laughter. What a sight! Well, enough of that. hehe I hope you had a great weekend and are finally enjoying some spring weather. It's nice here but it's supposed to freeze tonight. Was supposed to last night too but it didn't. Keeping my paws crossed that it doesn't again. (Worked last night, didn't it?) Here's a vote and have a great week! And thanks SO much for voting for Tiny when you can.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I'm sorry that I didn't make it over yesterday. I had every intention of blogging everyone but decided at 2am that I had simply run out of time! Especially with mama having to get up at 6am. hehe I just looked at her and rolled over and went back to sleep. Ah, the life of a dog! I hope you had a nice warm and green and sunny day yesterday. We were hoping for green too but the last few mornings we have awoken to heavy snowstorms and there was more today! Okay, so it's not strange to have snow in March but we've been having semi warm weather lately and were keeping our fingers crossed that spring was just around the corner. I guess we didn't have the luck of the Irish with us and apparently there must be quite a few more corners till spring is really here. Mama asked me if I could make summer come. So, I thought on it and replied, "No problem! It might take me a couple of months though." "Why so slow?" she has the temerity to ask? Well, it's not like I've done it before. That's a major commitment! Talking of major, mama finally finished a horse movie on which she's been working on and off since January. It's hard to find time but at least it's done now. I would love for you to take a peek at it. It's called Pippin: Valiant Protector of Honest Creatures If you type that into the search engine of YouTube it will be the first movie to come up. I hope you enjoy it! It's a humourous mix of drama and action. And lots of footage of beautiful horses! Talking of food, oh wait, we weren't talking of food but I WAS thinking about food. Mama was giving us dogs some chicken and she was holding a piece in her hand and asking Kermit to "speak." It took a couple of seconds and then he let out his little yorkie yap. Mama handed him his piece of chicken but WAIT! Where was it? It was in her hand one moment and gone the next! She didn't even notice but while her attention was held by Kermit I gently but deftly nabbed the chicken. Wow, what a perfect pickpocket I'd be! She didn't even feel it! hehe Wishing you all the best and may the luck o' the Irish be with you. Leaving you a lucky vote! PS Please vote for Kootenai 161648 on the HC. He and his mama are trying for hotm for the 4th time! I would really love for him to win this time and appreciate your support. And if you're already voting then thank you!!!

Merry Christmas!

I would like to wish you a very Merry Christmas with lots of family and friends with whom to share this happy holiday! I'm sure you've finished helping your family decorate and that everything looks so beautiful. It's my favourite time of year, apart from my birthday. Everything smells so good and we get extra treats and presents! Last year they made the mistake of decorating the tree with little birdies that had real feathers. This year they won't make the same mistake. Of course, that might be because I didn't leave a single one undemolished! hehe Well, it's not like I haven't told them before how much I love feathers! It will be Acorn's first Christmas. I wonder if she cares? Well, being a squirrel I'm sure she'll be happy with a few extra peanuts and blueberries. The other morning I slept in and mama came to wake me up. I could smell Acorn on her and I just looked at her accusingly. I'm not allowed to play with her but while I was snoozing away what was mama up to? My nose doesn't lie! I'm not allowed to chase her, eat her, or even lick my lips when watching her. What a waste of a perfectly good squirrel! Perhaps I'll get my own? Oh, wait! I do have Kermit! Okay, I'm happy. Well, talking of happy, I hope you have a very happy Christmas. Wishing you all the best this festive weekend! And leaving you a vote under your tree.

.·:*¨¨*:·. *VOTE MELIAN DOTM*.·:*¨¨*:·. .

Hi, my name is Melian (141414) and I am running for dog of the month in September in honour of Tiny (12997). She would have been 17 this month and she has a very special place in mama's heart. I am one year old and I was born the day before Tiny left this world. I am a special pup and bring smiles and laughter to those I love. Melian means "Gift of Love" which is exactly what I am. Mama didn't want another dog but on being persuaded by family and friends she searched far and wide for a little saluki pup. She said that if she was supposed to have another dog that one would come along and one did. And that was me! She couldn't have been luckier. My favourite thing in the whole wide world is feathers! No wait, it's Kermit, my yorkie cousin. I just love him and we do everything together. My second favourite thing in the whole wide world is feathers! I like chicken feathers, parrot feathers, wild feathers, but most of all and above all I LOVE peacock feathers. Every day I go and check the peacock pen and steal a few large feathers. Then I find a nice quiet place in which I can sit, eyes half closed in pleasure, and shred them into a 100 tiny pieces. I would love to have your support this month so please vote for me daily in September. You are all such good friends and I look forward to making many new ones as well. Love, Melian P.S. I know that you know who I am but perhaps you didn't know I was running for dog of the month?

Happy 4th of July!

I hope you have a wonderful day tomorrow celebrating with your family and friends. And I hope you get lots of yummy treats. We're all having a backyard bbq tomorrow and I'm expecting lots of handouts. I'm preparing my pleadingist look. As for fireworks, I'm glad that none of us is afraid because they've been going basically non stop since the 1st. I guess everyone in our area is a bit trigger happy. The guns have been firing too. The only ones upset are the peacocks. Every time a firework goes off they set off with their mournful screams. I guess we're used to noise around here by now. My legs are feeling a lot better now. I still don't run too much but on Wednesday we went on a day's hike in the mountains. We were at about 7000 feet and there was snow! I just went insane with happiness. I LOVE snow. We hiked up to the peak. I was off leash the whole time except for the peak. There was a sheer drop of unknown depth and since I'm unafraid of heights mama didn't want to take any chances. Check out the photos! Wishing you all the best and leaving a vote for you and independence. And thanks for leaving a vote for Tiny when you can. Tiny loved spending time with everyone outside and I'll do my best to honour her memory tomorrow. Melian
