can't you see the sunshine….

I’m exhausted

Guest Post: by Guppy, The Lucky Dog 3

She Who Must Be Obeyed is always on my case about writing my blog post. I just thought I would get ahead.

Man, these two people of mine are so needy. Every morning I have to sit in My Ben’s lap and make sure he knows how much I love him. And then I have to be watchful and protect them all day long. SQUIRRELS are EVERYWHERE!

Finally, they went away today, May 22. I haven’t been alone since the first bit of March. Some nights, when they have gotten on my last nerve, I go upstairs to my room for a few minutes every night. But then I come right back down. I mean someone has to look after them. They, like, sit up watching TV until 1 or so every night. Really! Don’t these people know how important sleeping 12 to 14 hours is……

So today, they went away. Oh gee thanks, the sun was just pouring in to my guard tower space. And she had not turned the cool air up. It was like ‘roasted dawg’. I was like happy and all when they came back but I had to take a major nap under the cool air just as soon as I could.

I hope they don’t go away again anytime soon.

What will they do next

Guest Post: By Guppy, The Lucky Dog 3

She Who Must Be Obeyed says I have to write a post before I can go sit outside. REALLY! I’m kind’ gettin’ tired of them bein’ around all the time. It has made me feel more secure so I’m not droppin’ as much hair as I used to.

We haven’t been doin’ too much different than normal except they don’t go anywhere. I mean, sometimes She will go out for a little bit. But I haven’t sat up on my perch at the front windows in I don’t know how long. I stay with Ben when She goes out. And I still sit in his lap every morning to check how he is doin’ and all.

There have been some big storms. And one night those evil squirrels sat up in the trees and threw all kinds of limbs and stuff down.




She is doin’ all this gardenin’ and spring stuff. Draggin’ things out. Into my space.




And now this week they have started goin’ to exercise classes on ZOOM whatever that is.




I tell you, it’s just embarrassing. Watchin’ these old people dancin’ around. They laugh and sing….. She says that is one of the places that they used to go to. She says they are goin’ to be doin’ these classes online until JUNE!!!!!! Oh, I just don’t know. Oh well, I’m gonna post this so I can sit on the deck now. Stay calm and kepp your paws clean.

It's a dog's world

Guest Post: By Guppy, the Lucky Dog 3

She Who Must Be Obeyed has tried to explain it to me. I don’t much care about the whys or hows, I just know that She and My Ben are home! Like all the time. It is so wonderful!

The wetaher has turned nice so when they start to get on my nerves I can sit on the deck.

She says I have invented a game. Every morning I sit outside to watch my sweet little birds having their breakfast. That nasty squirrel tries to horn in on their breakfast. I wait until that nasty squirrel gets comfortable and then I ‘fake’ lunge at it. Ohhhhh, that nasty squirrel runs off. It is so fun. I settle down and we do it all over again. She says that the dog they had in Italy, Nerone, (I think he was The Lucky Dog 2) played almost the same game with the chickens. She seems to like it that I play this game.

And thank goodness all that silly basketball has ended. I am finally able to take a decent nap without She getting all excited and yelling and all. So I don’t know all the whys and whatevers. I do know, Keep Calm unless you are faking out a nasty squirrel and keep your paws clean!

Birds

Guest Post: By Guppy, The Lucky Dog 3

I really like sitting and watching all the birds that come to my feeder

There is a nice variety coming to visit

The bluebirds are coming back all the time.

This little woodpecker comes by every now and then. There is also a pair of doves that visit. I’m real tickled about all of them. But I have to say, I didn’t know they would eat sooooo much. Kind of cutting into my toy money.

They are at it again!

Guest Post: By Guppy, the Lucky Dog 3

Really! I just want to have a nice quiet weekend and She Who Must Be Obeyed starts moving everything around!

Well, I just plopped down and hoped She won’t mess with me.

I guess that didn’t work. Look, the big bed is gone and my bed has gotten crammed over here in this little corner. Really! How am I supposed to relax. And then…

Oh, it was almost too much. She opened up a can of duck. Who knew duck comes in a can!!!! It smelled so good. And then there was fresh duck too. Enough to drive me crazy!

Of course, other people came. Fortunately, people I like, but they ATE ALL THE DUCK! Oh no! I didn’t get any at all! She keeps talking about how She misses eating duck so maybe she’ll buy another one and do this again. I sure hope so.

I’m a Calendar Girl

Guest Post: Guppy, the Lucky Dog 3

She Who Must Be Obeyed made me wait to write this. I had to wait until everyone got their calendar and finally they did. Saving Grace made a fund raising calendar and I got to be part of it.


I’m in the month of May, because that is when I came to live with She and Ben. See, I’m May 5th. Pretty cool….

I was real happy to see this cartoon.

I was not happy to see this evil squirrel eating my pricy birdseed

Oh, well, one day…..

Well, all right

Guest Post by Guppy, Lucky Dog 3

She Who Must Be Obeyed says I have to write something. She says I have been coasting along. Just napping through summer! Really! It has been hot here. Too hot to do much but watch Dog TV and nap. And some days she turns off Dog TV because she says too much sunshine is coming in so I have to nap.

Anyway, I’m gonna be a calendar girl. Those nice folks at Saving Grace are making a fund raising calendar and I get to be on it. She and I have been experimenting with poses. She thinks we should use something avant garde (whatever that is) like this ear shot.



But you know that doesn’t show my whole natural beauty. So I don’t know.


Anyway, we’ll have to decide soon. And I get to take a vacation. I’m excited about that! I am going to discover my inner wild dog and run with the pack. What fun! She says there might be squirrels!

Gosh! It’s HOT!

Guest Post by: Guppy, The Lucky Dog 3

I was really glad that She Who Must Be Obeyed washed the deck. It was really nasty. You know I sit on it.

It is much nicer now. And She has finally finished with all those plants. At least that is what She says. I’ll believe when I see it. Seems like for months now it has been “oh, look at this plant.” Oh, I’m going to buy plants. No you can’t go!” Oh, don’t eat that plant!” “Quit whacking the plants with your tail!” Blah blah plants….blah blah plants. Seems like a lot of money that could be spent buying fun dog toys was spent on PLANTS! Not to mention all this time she spent on PLANTS! And now watering…. I don’t like it when she is throwing a hose around.

So I just get all comfy and there She is “Let’s go out and sit on the deck!” Doesn’t She realize how HOT it is!

I’m just gonna have to start dropping hair again! Don’t ask me to leave the nice cool house!

Warm Weather

Guest Post by: Guppy, Luck Dog 3

So glad that it is here. I get to sit outside on the deck every morning. But I think the squirrels have multiplied! There seem to be a lot of them now.

April was real busy. I went to dog school and my extra walking classes. I graduated.

And I had to go to the vet. Then She got all busy cooking and cleaning because folks came for Easter Lunch. That was fun. Then She started moving everything around in my room and cleaning. I couldn’t drop hair for a whole week. And then we had a cousin visit! I like cousins. I think that She Who Must Be Obeyed has a few cousins but not all of them come to visit. This was a girl cousin on her Momma’s side who is 4 years younger. This cousin came to visit them when they lived in Italy. On Saturday, they all went running off to see things and were gone a long time. I didn’t like that but I sure did like visiting with them. The husband is real nice too.

I hope they come back again.
