"MAN is troubled by what might be called the "dog wish," a strange and involved compulsion to be as happy and carefree as a DOG." ---
James Thurber
Hi dear friends,
My secretary, AKA, the Mommy's hand is hurting tonight. She gots somebody called Arthur something visiting her and she gots tendinitis too. So she said she can't type much, so we are just gonna introduce you to our "R" selections. She says her hand didn't start hurting until it got cold again......34 this morning.......so she's gonna go soak it in Epsom salt after my post. She has a brace but she is way to stubborn to use it.
Strings of Friendship "R"
So tonight you get two "R" doggies and a little extra, cause one of them has a cute little sister.

RAMBO, the Chihuahua from Chico Hills, California

Rambo just fascinated the Mommy when we found his blog. Did you know that he was lost in the woods for many days by himself and lived to bark about it? On the sidebar of his blog a question is being asked "would you read a book about me being lost in the woods?" Well the Mommy said she'd buy the first copy. I would be terrified if I was lost anywhere much less the dark woods. DROH has several chi-wienies right now, so we are almost like cousins. That would be wonderful....you can never have enough relatives!!

We just love this picture! If you look real close you can see Rambo's sister.


Doesn't she have the cutest face?

All of you who participated in the Christmas Card Exchange probably got a card from Rambo and Midget. This was not the picture on the Christmas Card we got, they were in the same costumes, but The Mommy loves this picture. The Mommy took all my Christmas Cards to work so everybody could see all my different doggie friends and the people at work loved the one Rambo and Midget sent us.
Can you believe that the people at work thought the Mommy was making it all up that dogs and cats sent Christmas Cards all over the world. Well she sure fooled them!!!

You remember I said I wanted to do a post about brothers and sisters, well here is a picture of Rambo and Midget. Wouldn't it be a perfect picture to use?

RUBY, the Airedale from Sydney, NSW Australia

Ruby lives down under. The Mommy has always been fascinated with Australia and she would love to go there someday but she hates to fly and she said if she went on a ship and it sunk, she'd be the first person the sharks would go far because she'd fat and they'd think she was a tasty morsel. What a Doofuss!

Ruby is quite the athlete, as you can see, and she is working towards some Obedience trophies. Look at her fly over that jump. I think I'm to short to jump that high but I'D LOVE TO TRY!!

And look, she even drives a car!!

That's all for now........Love, kisses and (((huggies)))......Mona

Ruby said...

Hey there Mona,
Thanks for picking me for one of your R dogs. There are so many of us DWBs - it is a good idea to feature an alphabetical sampling. Funny thing, Kay is originally from Texas too (Dallas) - but she's been in Oz for a long time now.

That is a great brother and sister shot of Rambo and Midget!
Ruby is sure lucky that she has her own car! We wish we did!
You were one of the Christmas stocking winners, Mona!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Hi Mona!
I know Rambo but I haven't met Ruby yet! I will stop by her bloggie! I hope your mommy's hand is feeling better real soon! You should bark at that Arthur guy and tell him to leave your mommy alone!
