...the land of "Wow our internet connection has been awful!!"....Which is exactly what happens every time the cable co. announces "upgrades." That is a pretty naughty word around here. It costs more money,works less,and makes my Mom say more than a few cuss words. Exactly how many times have we been booted offline just today...I lost count...but I'm guessing that 12 gazillion is a close estimate.
So...it's been busy around here. We fondly remembered our Honey on the 17th. We miss her lots. Mom was away for a couple of days so that she could be with our Grandma as she had a procedure at the heart hospital,and Mom was in a car accident. We're ok here.
Today was a big day. HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Pete,Abby,and Ben!!!!!!! They turned nine today! Wheeeee!!! They didn't seem too be too concerned about it though. We had 'nip and stuff,but those guys pretty much just wanted to get in a lot of window time since it wasn't actually raining for a change. Can't really blame 'em.
Dutch was really naughty today. So not like him at all. He picked a fight with the pitbull next door. I have no idea why he doesn't like that dog. Mom says that it's a really sweet pup and I've seen her through the window. She's beautiful,but Dutch doesn't like her. He tried to cram his head through the fence and just went ballistic! Dutch,normally, isn't the aggressive type. He's pretty mild mannered and sensible. He gets along fine with the pit from the next block and he loves the blue-tick hound from the corner. He doesn't even really have an issue with the two cockers down the street. He just stands and looks at them like they're dumb cuz they bark constantly. After the pit incident,he comes back in and pouted for a bit cuz Mom asked him what is his problem and said he needed a time out. He went and threw himself on the couch and mumbled a bit. He stayed there for all of ten minutes and then decided to pick on MooshDORK.
Dutch and MooshDORK are BFF's. They do like to play rough sometimes. Dutch started whining and swatting at Moosh. In Moosh's defense(I can't BELIEVE that I'm defending him!)he was still under the influence of the 'nip and was in no mood for the doggy antics. Mom warned Dutch to leave Moosh alone,but he wouldn't listen. In a split second Moosh LAUNCHED himself at Dutch. Dutch took a couple of claws to the head and got a MooshDORK sized death bite to the throat. Made Dutch cry. Mom said,"I told ya to leave him alone. Sheesh Dutch! You will be two years old in just a few days. Any more such silliness like you've pulled today and you might not make it. Either Sophie will eat you or your own MooshDORK kitten will shred you. Go kennel up and let me know when you've come to your senses." Keep in mind folks: Dutch has NEVER been locked in his kennel EVER. He just goes in there and takes naps or just hangs out. It's just his "den." So Dutch went into his kennel and napped for about half an hour. When he came out he gave everyone big sloppy kisses and climbed into Mom's lap. He apologized.
I guess we all have our "off" days. Hopefully Dutch learns to make friends with Sophie next door and settles himself down somewhat. I'd hate to see our pup get hurt by another pup. It could be nasty and just plain sad for everyone involved.
Okie dokie boys and girls. Time for me to sign off before the internet goes poof again. The TV is acting strangely so who knows what will happen....besides Mom calling the cable co....
The ONE and ONLY Jack Rooney
P.S. Today we have the regular MooshDORK AND a DutchDORK....*sigh* darn kids....
