|Me and my new water dogger and pool|
So this is what happened this week at my house.
This was Happy Birthday to You America week. It was a loud birthday party. There were lots of scary kabooms. I was scared and Bailey was barky. It was not much fun. I hope America had a happy party but maybe next year it could be a quieter party.
|Mr. Squirrel is alive but he is not happy.|
(Just so you know, Mommy doesn't think Bailey ouched Mr. Squirrel. She thinks Mr. Squirrel was ouched in our yard and Bailey was trying to figure out what do to with him. Because Bailey was not being a wild squirrel killing dog. She was being a "Hey look what I found! Can I keep him?" dog.)
Mommy had to get Bailey in the house and call Dr. Hawkins to make sure Bailey was up to date on her rabid dog shots. Then she made Mr. Dave the Inspector Animal Controller come and take Mr. Squirrel away because it was right at the side door and we couldn't get out without stepping over his dead self.
|Mommy thought Mr. Squirrel was not alive any more.|
But guess what? Mr. Squirrel was not dead so Mr. Dave had to make it so Mr. Squirrel was dead so he could go into the black dead animal catcher bag. I don't know what happened but Mommy was in the driveway saying, "Eeew!! Blech!" and shaking her whole self all over and saying, "Thank you, Mr. Dave. I am never going to complain about how high our taxes are again."
|Mr. Dave came and said, "Mr. Squirrel is not dead."|
And that's all you need to know about what happened next.
After Mr. Dave left with the dead squirrel, Mommy found a dead bird in the front yard. It was wormy and had ants all over it. It was pretty gross. Mommy is fine picking up dead birds. She is not so fine picking up half alive squirrels.
We have good times with critters at our house. Remember when I was a puppy and I got into a fight with a squirrel and got a big scratch on my nose and had to get a shot? Oh, and remember when I was out for a walk with Mommy and put my nose into a hedge and got my eyeball scratched by a nasty, mean old cat? And remember when Mr. Possum came to visit? And the hedgehog was hiding under the car? And the bats and the chipmunks came to visit?
Critters are pretty exciting.
|Our new water doggers!!|
But want to know what was even more exciting? Mommy went shopping yesterday and bought new water doggers!! YAY!! Me and Bailey both got a new sprinkler and our own pools because Bailey wrecked the other pool and we got another hose so we can can be on different sides of the fence and play and not fight. Then we switch sides.
|Bailey likes to play in the mud. Mommy thinks she is part piggy.|
Wild Maniac Dog means you BARKBARKBARK and run around the house and take all of the rugs and put them in a pile and take all of cushions off the couch and throw them on the floor and bark in Mommy's face. Then you go outside poop and you feel better and take a nap.
|This is the Fountain of Eternal Life. It is not a dog swimming pool.|
Hey, guess what? They have the water turned on in the fountains at the cemetery! It's like a giant Water Dog Play Park! Just in case you didn't know, the Fountain of Eternal Life is not a dog swimming pool. But it should be.
|Bailey takes a swim in the fountain.|
|HAHAHA! Try and catch me, Mommy!|
I went with Mommy to the cemetery today. She let me see the fountain and guess what? I jumped in, too! Then I got my leash wrapped on a fountain so Mommy let go so she could untangle me. Then when she tried to get me out I swam away!! HAHAHA! So Mommy went to the other side of the pool to get me and guess what? I swam back to the other side! HAHAHAHA!! Then I laid down in the middle of the fountains and told Mommy to come and get me.
She couldn't reach me or my leash so I just laid there and laughed at her until she started to take off her sneakers to come in and get me. It was great. But I decided to get out because I didn't want the grave digger guys to see Mommy in the fountain and tell us that we can't come back to the cemetery to romp any more. Plus, it was getting very thundery and I wanted to go home.
|I was pretty proud of myself. I got a long walk and a nice swim|
and now it is time to go home and take a nap!
Bailey went back for a walk but it was rainy and thundery and lightningy right when they get out to walk and Mommy made her come home. So she didn't get a walk today. Then as soon as they got home, it stopped raining so me and Bailey just barked for a while.
I think that dogs should be allowed to swim in the fountain. The cemetery is also something called a wildlife preserve, which means there are deer and critters and even a GIANT bird that lives there. I'll bet the deer swim in the fountain when no one is looking.
Mommy has been trying to grow food this summer. We have some vegetables and strawberries growing. Yay for Mommy! She didn't kill everything!!
|This is how you grow stuff for your salad.|
|We grew dessert.|
|If you want to know how to escape from jail, just ask Bailey.|
Anyway, that is what happened this week at my house. It was a loud week and there was a lot of water. We did a lot of barking.
|Bailey is waiting for Mr. Pug and his owner to walk by so she can bark at them.|
