"All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others." -- George Orwell
The Mommy is all better now and it has been a very lazy weekend around here. We never left the house once and most of the last two days the Mommy just read blogs, took naps, watched movies (our cable came back yesterday) and sat outside watching me chase anything that moved. The Mommy has been feeding a big dog that has been roaming the neighborhood (actually he is so big that she just throws the food over the fence) and I bark at him while he eats. At the bottom of this post is a short video of us. Well this morning, he brought some friends with him. There was three out there this morning, so the Mommy just threw a bunch more of food out there for them. Thank goodness we still had some of the dog food I used to eat on hand.
Does anybody know what kind of a birdie this is? If are a TEXAN you know that it is the state bird of Texas.
Well, I'm here to tell you that he is a TERRORIST!! Yesterday, I was minding my own business chasing him and bunch of his friends out of my yard, when he flew into my house. Well of course I had to try to catch him. Of course the Mommy, started yelling at me to leave it alone. He was panic stricken and tried to fly out of the house but bounced off the patio door, flew across the room, hit the wall and then ran under the couch. What was I to do but go under there too. I never know the Mommy could move so fast....she pulled me out from under the couch by my tail (animal cruelty) and the bird flew into the kitchen. Then he stood on the ceiling fan and mocked me. I got hoarse barking at him but he just ignored me. The Mommy said she wished she'd had the camera because her says I went stark raving made. After a 20 minutes standoff, the Mommy made me go outside and left the patio wide open. So the bird decides to fly out and then had the nerve to dive bomb me. All I wanted to do was play with it.....I swear, I really just wanted to play with it!!
You'll remember last weekend, I got sent off to Jody's house for two whole days because we still didn't have our lights. Chris & Tina sent these pictures. Don't even ask me why, but Jody, Gordo and Mr Grins like to nap like this in Jody's cage. Mommy said Gordo gets mad because his Daddy, Mr Grins, likes to nap with Jody, so he forces himself in too. Looks like a tight squeeze to me!!
The Mommy was so jealous of me because I just settled right in on the air mattress with Emily & Jody.
The Mommy said she wanted to tell ya about all the good things that SJMC did for it's associates during Hurricane Ike. Anybody who wanted to come stay at the hospital were allowed to come and shelter there. People even got to bring there pets with them. There were about 50 people and 30 pets that stayed in the makeshift barracks that was setup in the auditorium. SJMC never lost power so to most of the kids it was a great adventure. I would have loved to be there with all them kids, doggies and kitties.
One day each child was allowed to have a tour of where their Mommies or Daddies worked, so the Mommy took pictures of all the kids that belong to some of the ladies that she works with. The first picture is of Chanyce & his mother, Necholle. I think he was trying to steal my Mommy away from me because he came and hugged on her every morning before Nicholle dropped him off and then had to come & give a kiss every afternoon.
