I is Four

Yep, that's right my birfday was Monday and I turned 4 years old! On Saturday I gots to go my beach to celebrate 
Sunday I gots to do my favorite activity.

My actual birfday was hurricane Sandy day here, but she didn't rain on my birfday parade!

I had pressies.....

And cake and ice cream!

Momma says I was so wound up that night even she was exhuasted.  I did zoomies 6 times in the house that evening.  It was just the perfect alignment of all the  birthday excitement, the sugar, the wind, the rain, and the full moon!
Happy Birfday to ME!

I am a Hero

So I am officially a hero. Let me tells you about it.

It was super early and in the morning and Dad had already left for work.  It wasn't even light outside yet.  he drinks his coffee, starts the truck, feeds us all, and lets the chickens out of their coop into the garden run every morning.

Me?  I do this....... Momma does the same.
Well the other morning I woke up and starting barking out the window like crazy! Outside there was a Coyote less than a Dane length from MY chickens!

This is Exactly what he looked like.
Momma grabbed her boots and ran out the door chasing the Coyote like a Crazy lady and then she started counting the chickens.  Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Cher, Madonna, and Queen Latifa were all huddled in the corner of the  fenced garden.  Gwen was in the garden and Britney, Lil' Kim, and Reba were still in the coop.  Are you counting?  That means we are missing two of the babies.  Momma got everyone back in the coop and then heard a noise.  Katy was 50 feet up in a tree - the little bantam babies can fly over the 5 ft fence!  She came down and Momma got her back to safety.  We called Grammy and Grampy to tell them that we couldn't find MJ.  This is MJ.

Finally we heard Cockle doodle doo in the woods!  Everyone was so happy.  After he felt safe in about 10 minutes he came back down out of the trees and he was put back in the coop.

I stayed inside and barked the whole time to keep that coyote away. Nobody messes wif my chickens.  I is a hero.

Goodbye Kitteh Brudder Patch

Today we said a sad goodbye to Patch.  A couple of weeks ago he was not getting around as well as normal, his back legs were starting to splay on slippery surfaces.  At his age arthritis with some nerve damage is common and after a check up with the vet he received a steroid injection and given some time to see improvements.  Patch was more willing to move around up until last night.  He lost all control of his back feet and they were completely paralyzed.  The small amount of walking he could do was because he still had control of his hips and legs.  This morning he no longer had control of his right front paw. Vader and Rugen refused to leave his side last night and this morning. Somehow this strong boy was able to still get around (with some help last night and this morning) and didn't have a single accident- but his nerve damage moved so fast that his body just gave out on him. His hyperthyroidism most likely made the damage move faster. Although his mind was still there his spirit was breaking, we couldn't let our old boy loose his dignity and had to help him to the bridge. We will miss him so much.  Our hearts are again broken, it hasn't even been a year since we lost Ellie.

High Security - so what's your sign?

Now in my house I is suppose to be the one watching the house.  I am the dog after all.
However, I can usually be found doing this.....

The nice people at My Security Sign asked me if I would like to review a sign since they were just introducing new Guard Dog signs (who me?).  So, we took a look at the site and found one that was just perfect for our house.  The nice people at My Security Sign sent us this!
It's Vader's Sign! BOL..... BOL.
Oh I can't stop laughing, BOL BOL.......
OMG - It looks just like him.... I think he was there model for the image.. BOL....
Don't you just love it? You can get yours here.
He's so fat he even tried to hide behind the sign, not going to work there kitteh...

Now this sign isn't one of those cheesy plastic signs that "pretends" to be a real sign.  It is a real honest to goodness metal sign like your Department of Transportation would have.  They have so many different signs to choose from and lots of doggy breeds too!

Thank you very much My Security Sign and the nice Michael who worked with us.  We love the sign and I can't wait to figure out where we are going to put it up.
