Hey there, Contessa!

Thanks for stopping by to bark at me! I always enjoy your visits. That is so neat that you are considering a visit to Alabama. If you do come here, we can plan on meeting up with Alabama Gang, too! Do you mean December of 2012 or 2013? Mt. Cheaha is about 30 miles from us. We are about 30 miles from any big area! BOL! Wedowee is about 30 miles from us. It isn't that far from Mt. Cheaha. Maybe about 30-45 miles. There is a really nice campground on the Tallapoosa River in Wedowee. It is called: Lake Wedowee Pope Lane Campground Big Tallapoosa River. It is a pretty area. There are also Chalets that you can rent on Mt. Cheaha and campgrounds, too. It is very pretty up there. But may be a bit chilly in December. There is a nice resort area in Alpine, AL. There are a lot of nice places to visit. Our Moms should chat about this over the phone. It probably will be easier. Let me know if she would like to do that and I will post my email address on your page. Then when you get it, you can remove it. We are looking forward to being able to meet you some day! I think I will do the "Happy Dance!" Have a great day! BBS. Left you a vote and lots of sweet Golden Kisses...

Hi Contessa! Voted -:l:- VOTE DURANGO #217164 DOTM JUNE -:l:- Durango is a Australian Shepherd from TN he loved dog treats, running and being played with. Durango came to our house when we had our other dog Piper (Who passed away) and my dad didn’t want two dogs at once. We kept him for a little bit, while we looked for his owner (We knew he had one because he had stitches in him). We were unable To find his owner- so we had to the animal shelter because my dad would not Let us keep him. Today I wish I could have kept him, he was the best dog ever. I hope he can have the honor of winning DOTM, I am thankful for every vote. -:l:- VOTE DURANGO #217164 DOTM JUNE -:l:-

Hi Everyone!

Well everyone finally agreed on our names. We're Big Dan & Little Ann & we're the newest members of the Alabama Gang. We were left in a country cemetery and had worms & were hungry to. Then this kind man took us home with him. It was sad though. The whole house was so sad. They had a beautiful black lab named Lady who went to Rainbow Bridge just 2 days after we arrived. They miss her but we're keeping them very busy! There's so much stuff to chew on here! We had a ball with the hose pipe! Wow! Daddy got a new one today though! Anyway come by & visit us! Mommy took a picture of us play on the front porch. Big Dan is lighter than me and of course bigger. I'm Little Ann & even though I'm smaller than my brother and I'm the darkest but Mommy says we're beautiful! Nice to meet you DC! Love ya!

Come visit me, Alabama Gang, Guardian Angels/This month honoring Little Buddy!

Hi Beautiful Contessa and Mom Veronica...

Thank you so much for you prayers and Shepherd hugs, and all your kind words for Paulette, Chey and Chip. It is so sad with the loss of Chey and Chip within months. Mom and I wanted to be there for Paulette. We kept her busy, and helped her with things around the house, and made a memorial garden for Chey and Chip. Mom and I didn't want to leave when it was time go home. Thank you again. It means alot to us and we conveyed your prayers and kind words to Pauletter...Have a great day, and left a vote...Shiloh Snuggles...Takoda and Mom Cindy

Come visit me, Angel Takoda - Rest in Peace - 12/15/02 - 5/11/14 - Thank you all for your beautiful blogs, cards, and well wishes. It means so much to us.. We will be off-Line as we are dealing with our loss. Thank you so much for you thoughts, prays and comments..

Hi Contessa

Well, it is almost June. I am running for DOTM, Daddy's friend from the Army and his girlfriend are coming on Wednesday, June 6th from Montana and leaving on Monday, June 11th! Mommy has never met Chief (he is a Northern Cheyenne Indian) Mommy said those 5 days are very important to my campaign so it will be a challenge but we will get as much blogging done as possible! Maya offered to do it by herself and Mommy said Thanks, but I don't think so..........that was AFTER she quit laughing hysterically at the visual image of her at the dining room table typing away on her laptop. ( she has to use the table with the laptop because she doesn't have a lap. hehehe) She also needs a booster chair to reach the table when she gets in the chair unless she stands up on her hind legs! ...And I am NOT STRETCHING the truth, either! bahahahaha! I feel kinda like we should be hopping up and down in a ring getting all psyched up for the big bout, Or driving around in a big ol' bus with Vote for Chewie on the side and kissing babies. What do they call that thing the politicians do???Oh yeah, "STUMPING" have we done that yet? Unless it involves the part of a tree that's left after Daddy cuts it down for firewood, I have absolutely no idea what that campaign manager doesn't have a clue either! BOL! Thanks again,for your support and votes, my good friend ! PuppyDog Kisses and Tail Wags, Chewie Cairn Cuddles, Maya

Well I didn't get into too much trouble this week. I did pee on the floor at mom's office. I was barking and barking but no paid any attention to me. Mom was seeing patients, so I had no choice, when you gotta go you gotta go. So I did it right there on the floor. Now they know that when I bark I have to go outside!!! Mom yelled at me 2 days in a row at dinner time. She fed me and Faith, side by side, and when I was finished with my dinner and just moved over and put my face into Faith's bowl and ate with her. She didn't even try to bite me. I guess maybe she thought I was the Original Hope. Mom saw me do this so she yelled at me to get out of there and that I had my dinner and I don't get seconds!!! So I moved away, then got to finish Faith's left overs. And you know what?, it was sooo good the first time I thought that I might try it again the next day. I did and I got caught again. I tell you, Mommie must have eyes in the back of her head! Today Mommie was outside with that power washer again. She was out there for 3 hours and her face got beat red from the heat. Then her sister and cousin came over to swim in the pool so they took turns power washing the fence. I tried to scale the fence to get at that dang water coming out of the nozzle. Didn't know I could jump so high. Then the Original Hope's boyfriend (Tucker) came over to swim in the pool. Mom put me in the pool Saturday but I got out as soon as I could. I didn't like it. Tucker's daddy picked me up and put me in the pool and you know what?? I STILL DIDN'T LIKE IT. Hey tried everything to get me to go in on my own but I wasn't having any part of it. I did growl meanly at the rafts floating in the pool and when my aunt Debby picked it up and ran backwards into the deck while still growling. Mom didn't come into the house until 6 pm and I know she is tired because I got tired just watching her. Well that's all for now, hope you all have a good night. Hopie TOO

Hi! Contessa! Another great picture. I only sign in about once a week now - just to busy - trying to get all the yardwork done. That is not really true because we have had days of rain so not much is getting done but we will have a fine crop of weeds. My Mom and Dad are going away for 3 or 4 weeks in July so I will have to stay off the computer while they are away - my pawrents just don't trust me to be on the computer unsupervised. They will have someone stay here at the house to look after me and the fish and the house. Hope that all is well with you and your loved ones.

Come visit me, Keshia

remembering all our military servicemen. our country has been built on their backs...from those who marched barefoot on bloody feet through the snow of valley forge with george washington, to those who withstand the scorching desert heat in afghanistan today. freedom isn't free.
