In our House

Yes, there is a cute Cardi in the picture, but look IN the toy box. Sammy decided that sitting on top of the toy box was a safe place to chew on some rawhide. Whatever!

Cute Cardi was tired out from our walk this morning. In fact all three dogs are sleeping peacefully. Zippy deserves the rest more since he had to take so many more steps than the collies did.

They're Here!!!

Scooter, Libby, and Zippy met their young cousin, Sammy, this morning. There were no problems, and Zippy and Sammy did a little running in the yard. I am sure there will be MUCH more to follow. Problems and running.

They explored the pool together. Zippy went all four feet in, which I have never seen before. Glad to see that. Sammy is a tax child, born on April 15 which means he is 3 and 1/2 months old. The two puppies are about 6 weeks apart in age. Zippy looks like a monster now. They are the same height, but not the same length. Each one has his forte.

Needless to say, I am happily at home, with elephant ankles and shaky everything from the caffeine. Let's just make a movie and call it "To Hell and Back" because that is how I will remember it. If I never go to Fl again, it will be toooooo soon.

Mr. Schnuffels

Zippy here,

I just wanted you to see my newest friend up here in the north land. UN mom and Jake call him Mr. Schnuffels. They said that he is from some comic strip called "Pearls Before Swine". In that comic strip they have a terrorist cat. They, Un mom and Jake, said that Mr. Schnuffels acts like a terrorist. I don't think so. Take a look at these pictures. He really likes me to chew on his ears. That is fun.

The other dogs went into the house, but we stayed out to play. Mr. Schnuffels comes into our yard through a hole in the fence. He is a lot of fun, and sometimes he even chases me. I sure do love to run.

Un mom says not to worry because my cousins will be here in 10 days. I have no idea what she is talking about, but I trust her. She says one of them is only six weeks younger than I am. His name is Sammy. He should be fun to run with. I hope he likes me. I am trying to get my ears to stand up so I look like a real Cardigan when he comes. UN mom says he is coming from a place where it is very hot just like I did. He should like it up here in the North.

That's it from here, but I just wanted you to see my newest friend. Mom says it is only 7 days until she is going to get Sammy and Pearl and Todd.

Hey! What about me?

When I was ready to go to bed, I found this group on MY side of the bed. We were only missing three cats.

Could be something really neat happening here tonight. I have my fingers crossed.

12 days and counting.

Why I Live Here

I am the designated hay raker if I am able. Yesterday, I was available. While I was driving the tractor I realized that this was one of those special moments. I was so content doing that work. The view was awesome in any direction because we live on top of a ridge.

The orderliness of the hay raked in beautiful rows was pleasing to the eye.

The adjacent field was in full bloom and heavenly to smell, and the temperature was warm but not hot with a wonderful breeze.

And to top it off, I had my headset radio to dampen the noise of the tractor tuned to WPR. Those are just a few of the reasons why I love living here.

Now see what you have done!

Zippy here!

First of all here is a picture of my Libby. I just love that girl. She is so much fun to hang on to. Sometimes she gets a little upset with me, but mostly she just likes to play like I do.

The rest of this is so sad. Look what happened to me. UN mom did this with her eyes closed after she had been drinking some "stuff". I look just awful. It is a good thing I have such a wonderful personality, or who would want me in their house.

I sure am glad that we aren't going anywhere today because I would have to hide in the tall plants outside like I did the other day just because I am so ashamed of how I look. I sure hope she takes this tape off of me tonight even though it will hurt.

Maybe UN mom was upset that she had to rake the hay today, and that is why she made such a mess of my beautiful ears.

I will let you know what happens next.

Who's right?

To everyone out there in Cardi-land from Zippy,

UN mom and I are having a bit of a disagreement here right now. She thinks I should have some more of that awful tape on my ear/ears again. I totally disagree with her........TOTALLY!!!!

What do you think? Do I still have to have my ear/ears taped, or is that left one up enough now? I have four new teeth on the bottom and two on the top, and UN mom said she wished I would hurry and get something besides the "little needles" that I have in my mouth now. I don't have any idea what she is talking about.

Oh, I forgot. I have gone to my favorite store twice this weekend. How is that for a holiday weekend? ...........My favorite store is TSC. They like me there because I keep all the dog food off of the floor so they don't have to worry about rodents. That is a great place!!!

Let me know what you think about the "ear thing". Here is what I look like now.
