Noise is a good thing...

There have been people at our house lately and they sure have made a mess and made loads of noise. Mom says we are getting "remodeled", what ever that means. As a result, my dad has been taking me with he and Ollie in the morning to go to grandma and grandpa’s house. So this is what Ollie has been doing all these years? I’ve been gypped! I’ve really loved this. I get to go with Dad for a short drive every morning and stand at the helm (is there a helm in a car?) right there on the center arm rest and tell dad where to go. Then grandpa gives me treats for absolutely no reason at all! I get to go outside many times a dad and then I get to come home with dad and do the helm things all over again. I get home just in time for mom to get there. What a coup! Mom has been telling dad that I’m going to have behavior issues when this stops- hey, why does it have to stop? I’m a good boy! Besides, I don’t stink like Ollie does! Ollie has butt issues! He just got a bath two days ago and he stinks again….hehehehe! I’m a handsome, clean smelling gentleman. That’s what mom always says, and grandma says I’m so handsome that she can’t take her eyes off of me. Hehehe! See, Sunshade- you got a winner!

True doggie friends!

Sorry I've been away from the computer lately. My mom has been really busy and she hasn't let me have my time on the laptop. Selfish, I tell you. I haven't even been able to communicate with my beautiful girlfriend Sunshade. I told mom that I'd had enough and that I needed to get online before Miss Sunshade gives up on me and finds another hunk to call her beau. I think mom really has just been sad about giving Ajax away and that's been her problem. I even heard my dad tell her that she gave away his dog but then mom said she got a nice email from the wonderful people who adopted Aax and they said he is doing really well. They said that Ajax and his new brother really like each other and have even been playing tug-o-war with their toys.
Anyway, I see that I've been tagged and the topic is "What makes for a true doggie friend", so here goes.
5. True doggie friends will play chase with me in the back yard. I'm it and then you're it.
4. True doggie friends share their nylabones.
3. True doggie friends will join in with me to hunt and chase the squirrels. You go to one side of the tree and I'll go to the other. (Ollie is finallly getting the hang of it!)
2. True doggie friends wouldn't even think of jumping into my mom's lap. She's mine, get that straight.
1. The best thing that makes a true doggie friend is a doggie friend who selfishly helps other dogs even though they could have had unlimited treats for themselves. (I'm thinking about Dean-O! here!)

Now I'm off to see who I can tag...I'm so late I bet everyone has already been tagged!!
P.S. - Christine sent this wonderful picture and note about the Petster prize from Dean-O to the American Fox Terrier Rescue group. She says, "Jean & Jake stood in for us at Petster in Seattle toaccept the $1000 cheque for Fox Terrier Rescue. Congrats to everyone who worked so hard to get the votes in for Dean-O!" Way to go everyone and specail thanks to Dean-O! and his mom Christine for their generosity!

...and then there were two....

Last night mom and dad left with Ajax and came home without him. I thought maybe mom’s mind is slipping and they accidentally left him somewhere, but mom says they did it on purpose. What? Why would they do such a thing? Ajax was a great little boy and I was really growing to love the little fella. Mom said they found a new home for him and that he was my foster brother which meant he was only here temporarily. Mom and Dad said that Ajax went to a home with really great people who seemed to love him already. Mom said the daddy; a man named Warner had grown up with Wire Fox Terriers and that he and his wife, Sharon had rescued a couple of WFT’s themselves. Apparently he and Sharon had recently lost one of their boys and the other dog there Toby was lonely so they adopted Ajax. Dad said that Toby and Ajax ran and ran in the backyard like they were old pals. I can see that since Ajax was such a nice little guy and really fun he will do well in his new home.
Even though mom and dad said that they were really happy that Ajax went to such a wonderful family, I could still tell that they were sad about him being gone. I think we all miss him already. Crazy, eh? Anyway, Ajax, buddy, we love you little fella.

WiReD FoR AjAx!!!

I’d just like to report that things are going well with my little brother, Ajax. I’ve decided he’s pretty cool. He’s just a little tike at about 15 lbs and is a puppy, maybe 1 year old. Mom and Dad really love him already and I wasn’t sure how I felt about that, but I think he’s just a nice little guy, so I will be nice to him. Mom laughs at me a little because I get up while we are sleeping to check on him to make sure he is okay. I also lay near him sometimes, I think this makes him feel more secure, so I do my part. Mom laughed because she has caught us playing and romping in the back yard a few times. I have to say though, that I think Ollie has been mean to him. Not at home or anything, but Ajax told me that mom and dad took him to pick up Ollie at Grandma and Grandpa’s last week and Ollie was jealous and attacked him. See! It hasn’t been me starting all those fight! It’s been Ollie…mean old Ollie. Anyway, thankfully Ollie wasn’t out for blood or anything, but was just showing off for Grandpa. Mom was not happy with him, and I don’t think she has spoken to him since. I understand too, because he’s just a little tike and like mom says, he’s just a baby. Anyway, Mom and Dad still say that Ajax needs a new home. I think I’ll miss him if he goes away, but then again, I’ll get my spot back on the sofa!!!
