Found trinkets

I have to admit, just like anyother girl I have a fondness for trinkets. Especially red or gold metal tags that make a delightful tinkling sound when I move. I was really dismayed when I lost both of mine about a month ago. Seems the loop attaching them to my collar (a lovely red collar) got caught on that pesky chain link fence I had to go under to get my rawhide chew I left in the other yard! And then both my tags fell off!

Well, I am happy to say that today I got my red one put back on. Really, a girl feels so much better when her jewelry has been fixed. Even the wind in my hair felt better afterwards. Now if they would just find my other one, I know I left it on the porch for them to see it, how blind can they be?

Suzy Vents

Hear me now or you will hear me all night long!!! It is not, I repeat NOT normal for there to be more police cars than I have paws parked in front of my house!!! Do not tell me everything is ok! Look at those cops standing in the middle of the road. Even the kids next door know better! I'm so upset I need to rip something apart, someone bring me my squeaky toy! I've gotta have a least one left that still has a squeaker....

I had such a great moring today! It rained more than it's ever rained in my life last night. Of course, I'm only 4 years old (28 in dog years) but hey! Kim says it sounded like it was raining on a lake because the whole yard was one huge puddle!

Around 8:30 she let me out of the garage and low & behold what do I find? Two stupid cats! I chased them and scared them good! You should have seen how fluffy they got. Kim called me back, good thing because I had to go potty so bad I almost lost it before I made it to the grass. I would have been so humilited to pee on the driveway. And you know every dog in town would smell it. Well at least till it rained some more.

Then I get to see my favorite UPS driver in the world, but can you belive it, she for got my milk bone! That's ok. I got to bark at the Fed Ex guy. He doesn't know I'm a pushover yet.

Well, gotta go, time to eat!

A hero story, How I saved the wounded pigeon

Hi everyone, Suzy here. I thought I'd offer some proof on how wonderful I am. I have several "hero dog" stories, but this is my most recent one. A month ago I was out in the rain (had been couped up all day) and I was inspecting the fence perimeter when I came across a trespasser! I immeadiately sounded the alert letting everyone in the house know that there was an unidentified animal in MY yard that I needed assistance with.

You never know with unidentified animals, they are usually wild, could be dangerous, or they may need help.

Well, since I was standing two inches from it barking my head off I was able to convey that this creature didn't seem dangerous. Kim finally came out with a flashlight so I could get a better look at it. She told me it was just a pigeon. I ask you, what is a pigeon doing in my yard at 11:30pm in the dark and in the rain? She told me it was a nice birdie and said maybe it was hurt. That could explain why it was in my yard at that hour. So, I stopped barking at it and used my superior smelling abliites to determine that, yes in fact this pigeon was bleeding. I kept pointing to the injury, but that fool Kim thought I was smelling the birds breath! As if!

Then she told me not to bark at it because I was "tramatizing it" and made me go site by Pat while she went inside to get a rescue kit (looked like my bath towel to me) and she then transported my (finders keepers) bird to the other side of my fence where I could watch over it but not "bother it". The next day we checked on it and I had told what good girl I am for keeping the stupid cats away from it. They would eat it injury and all. She found it's owie and gave it water and food. It hung around a couple more days before flying off. That's gratitude for you.

Well, I've gotta go, got a yard guard and people to bark at ya know!

My name is Suzy & I am the smartest dog in the world. Some people don't think so, but it's true. Today was a boring day, it rained, and it rained some more and then it rained again. This means there was nothing to chase, no birds tried to steal my dog food (I always leave some as bait) the stupid cats next door didn't try to come steal my yard, all the bad guys were staying home. It was terrible! I had to entertain myself!

I have to make a confession, I am a compulsive herder. You can't resist my superior herding instinct, if you are not where I want you, I will put you there! Resistance is futile!

Well, it's late & the person I have herded into writing my blog has to FEED ME! She also has to give me my nightly back massage & open the gate so I can inspect the other part of my yard. After dinner I have to make sure my family is safe while the kids settle down to sleep & the adults watch tv. The are so vunerable when watching tv!

I'm a busy dog and I've got work to do. Please be safe, make sure your gates are closed, the water bowl is filled and you have a flashlight handy in case your dog needs backup!
