Hello FRIEND'S OF DHARMA!
What a fun time we had this week.
HERE I AM WITH TRAVIS
radio station in Fitchburg Mass.
As you can see here, I am on the couch with Papa and we are
be interviewed by
OUR NEW FRIEND TRAVIS.
Check out our interview here:
Did I tell you that Travis's
Ollie is a Hound Mix and will be 7 soon.
His Papa Travis and Mama Ashley adopted him from a shelter in Virginia.
He and his "LITTLE SIS" had been shoved through the fence at the shelter.
I guess at least a person knew they might be helped there.
Mama told me that once when she lived in the country she came home to find a baby bunny in a cardboard box with a wilted piece of lettuce on her doorstep. Ah well, I guess those people also though others would take care of their pet. Sad actually.
Now Ollie loves to listen to songs on the radio
especially BAND MAROON 5 "Animals", Wiz Khalifa's "See you Again"
and The Weekends "Can't Feel My Face".
MY GOSH THIS DOG is a MUSIC LOVER!
Well, with a Papa like Travis, like,
how could he not be.
He said that when Ollie hears the band, he will stop
CHEWING HIS BONE,
just to listen in.
He has very expressive eyes,
so it is
very funny to hear him
You go Ollie!
Travis says "DON'T WE JUST LOVE OUR DOGS"!
It is so true.
He pulled out his cell phone,
QUICK ON THE DRAW,
just like the LONE RANGER,
and out came
PICTURES OF OLLIE.
They were sweet.
AIN'T LOVE GRAND?
Thank you everybody for reading my stories.
Here is Auntie Kelly with her baby bunny.
What a happy time!
Hello FRIEND'S OF DHARMA!
I AM SAD.
NOT LONELY, JUST A LITTLE SAD.
MAMA AND PAPA,
NO WAY TO PUT IT LIGHTLY,
ACROSS THE POND!
Yes, up in the sky, through the clouds up high,
across the BIG BLUE WIDE,
they are gone,
AWAY FROM ME
INTO THE HANDS OF THEE
the SCOTS MEN YOU SEE!
Yup, they went to Scotland.
Going to hang out with the Albannach Boys and Sister Jacquie for a week.
WHAT A HOOT IT WILL BE.
Now I know that my Mama has been
telling me about this for months.
TRYING TO HELP ME BE READY.
WELL, I AM NEVER READY
MY MAMA AND PAPA GO AWAY.
But, it is after all OK
BECAUSE I'VE GOT SUSAN!
Now not everybody has a Susan.
ONCE UPON A TIME
us "FUR BABIES"
would go to kennels when
THE OLD FOLKS WENT AWAY.
Wizzer and Kira went to kennels
BUT IT BECAME
SO MAMA AND PAPA
Here is their story.
The last time Mama and Papa traveled and put "the guys" in kennels they were gone two weeks.
Kira went to a kennel in Merrimack. He knew the kennel owner very well
as he had helped Kira to LEARN HIS MANNERS. This trip Mama and Papa were gone two weeks.
THAT CAN BE LIKE A ETERNITY
TO A DOG
DON'T YOU THINK?
WE ONLY LIVE FOR TEN TO FIFTEEN YEARS.
TWO WEEKS IS LIKE, WHAT, A PEOPLE YEAR FOR A DOG?
And so when they came back, POOR KIRA, was just laying in the kennel, and clearly VERY SAD. They felt VERY BAD. It was not that the kennel owner did not take care of him well, it was just that
HE DID NOT KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TO HIS FAM.
HE FELT ABANDONED.
Where was his LITTLE BUD?
For WIZZER, when Mama and Papa picked him up at his kennel,
HE DID NOT RECOGNIZE WHO THEY WERE.
He also was just laying there, not responding,
and anyone who met the WIZZER knew,
WELL THAT'S NOT RIGHT!
Anyway Mama carried him away from the place,
AND HELD HIM IN HER ARMS while Papa drove them home.
It was about ten minutes down the road before
HE REALIZED, HE REALIZED
THAT HIS FAM HAD COME TO TAKE HIM HOME.
He did not realize that it WAS THEM, THOSE THAT HE LOVED.
HE WAS SO HAPPY,
SO VERY TRULY HAPPY.
So the folks decided THEN AND THERE
that there would be not more KENNELS FOR THESE BOYS.
We have had many people take care of us over the years,
but SUSAN has been with us the longest.
It is great, we get to sit on the couch together,
JUST SHE AND ME.
EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE A SUSAN.
So Mama and Papa have a
I CAN'T WAIT FOR YOU TO GET BACK SO WE CAN START
OUR ADVENTURES TOGETHER!
Before you know it
we will be
ON THE ROAD AGAIN!
Love Dharma Dharma!
Hello FRIEND'S OF DHARMA!
Don't you just
LOVE GOOD FRIENDS?
Here is me and Kurt. I just finished licking his face. What a good sport, huh?
Kurt is the
MAN AT THE TOP
This is Nikko and he is a big 5 years old now
and a Siberian Husky.
Kurt is Nikko's
you name it.
What does this dog
AND I MEAN,
LONG, LONG, LONG,
AND I MEAN LONG WALK
in the woods in the
EARLY, EARLY, EARLY MORNING
with the BIG GUY.
Kurt says that when he greets him each day,
he HOWLS like the TRUE SIBERIAN HE IS at the first sight of his car.
At the window, WAITING, and WAITING and WATCHING from the window,
OUT HE RUNS TO GREET HIM. It always, ALWAYS puts a smile on Kurt's face.
"NOT A MEAN BONE IN HIS BODY", KURT SAYS.
"I think Nikko believes that EVERYONE is here for his entertainment". How cool is that.
Happy SNOW DAY Nikko!
Here is Christyann and JACK'S CREW.
Jack is a miniature schnauzer who Christyann fostered along with his four pack mates,
3 mini schnauzers and A schnoodle.
Does ANYONE HAVE A CLUE WHAT A SCHNOODLE IS?
Anyway, Jack is now an only dog and LOVES playing fetch, although he doesn't really understand the "BRING YOUR BALL BACK TO ME" part of the game. GO FIGURE!
Anyway, thank you to Kurt and Christyann for telling us about their animal buddies.
Isn't LOVE GRAND!
