Some of you have asked who is older, me or Jack.
Well, I am the oldest by one year.
Jack is 7 years old.
Thanks to all of you who have sent him such warm welcome wishes!
This is Jack's favorite place to sit. For some reason, he likes to go up
to about the 4th or 5th step on our stairs and sit. He is so funny!
Until later,

Ahemmm....Announcement Please

Well, as you know from my previous post, Momma "almost" got to adopt a new playmate for me.
But, it did not become reality.
Well, something about that happening must have got the desire burning in my Momma for me to have a new sibling, because guess what????
We have adopted a new poodle-brother for me!!!
Jack, the white poodle.
He is much smaller than me, Momma says he only weighs 8 pounds (I weigh 12 pounds).
He is very timid.
His story is sad.
He was a puppy mill worker in Oklahoma most of his life. He stayed in cages most of the time, never
getting any lovin' or attention.....except to be bred. When the puppy mill owner decided he
was too old to work, he took him to the vet to be euthanized (Momma told me what that word means and I covered my ears!!).
Well, instead of doing that, the Vet called Pryor Animal League (P.A.L.) in Pryor, Oklahoma and a sweet lady came and got Jack and took him into her foster home! (I wanna give that sweet lady some slobbery kisses.)
Well, Momma saw Jack's photo on the same website where she saw mine (Petfinder) and called the lady and they agreed to meet so Momma and Sissy could meet Jack. They drove a long way, 2.5 hours, (like they did with me!) to meet Jack. Apparently, it was love at first sight, because they brought him home that night! Because he is very timid, I mostly just ignore him right now, but he does not bother me....except to smell my butt occasionally. tee hee Arf! this blog will be about OUR adventures: Jasper & Jack! :o)
More photos will be coming, so
stay tuned.
P.S This is Cynthia: please keep my 24 year old niece in your prayers...she is 7 months pregnant with her and her husband's first baby... and was rushed to the emergency room this morning. She was having hard contractions and dilated

to 2 cm. We are very worried about her and the unborn baby. They are keeping her in the hosptial and trying to stop the labor from progressing. Thank you! Cyn.

Mystery Solved and the Peeople Park

Okay everyone.....the mystery of the strange doggie scent has been solved.
You are looking at a photo of the guilty dog.
She wandered up around my Momma's office and seemed to be homeless.
Of course, Momma fell instantly in love with her and wanted to bring her
home. (I really would not have minded, she IS a cutie pie!)
Momma hugged and loved on her during her lunch break from work., and
that is how the pup's scent got on Momma's clothes.
Anyway, Momma had decided to adopt her if nobody came to claim her.
But, by the end of the day, the lil' girl's owner claimed her and took
her back home!!!
Drats, I was looking forward to having a playmate.
Oh Well., on to the story of my weekend....and it was a FUN one.
First, I got to ride in the Jeep and go to a lot of fun places. We
went to PetsMart and Momma bought a new toy for me. While
we were there, we watched a lil' Shitzu puppy getting trained, and it
was so reminded me of Baby, Chiyo, and
Billy Boo!
After that, we went to the Peeople Park to test my new
toy. I really like that new toy!!

We went to Sissy's friend's house
to pick her up.
"Come on Nikki, lets go!"

Is she coming or not?!
(Momma had put my shirt on here)

Ohhh goodie, we are on our way!
"WEEEeeeeeee this wind feels so good"

There it is!!

Sissy had to put this silly Harley hat on me;
Don't I look ridiculious!?

This is the new toy; the name is a bit
embarrassing...considering.... I no longer have any!!!

We finally got to the Peeople Park.
"Come on Momma, get my toys
off this stump and let's play!!"

(Momma had taken my shirt off,
cuz she knows I get hot when I play)

I had so much fun playing fetch with my
Tuff Balls!! arf!

I also played with my regular tennis ball
some too.

All this running around made me thirsty!

All that drinking made me haff to pee!!

Don't my ears look funny!?! Sissy
had thrown my tennis ball in the air,
and I was jumping up to get it.

I am tired now.... I am ready to
go home.

But not before I get some more lovin'!

I slept all the way home.
(Momma had put my shirt back on me again!)

Ohh yeah,
Momma made me a new water bowl at
the pottery place she likes to go to. I like it!

Until later,

I woke up for this?? Sheesh

Hellowwww every pup! I hope everyone is doing good on this lovely Friday!!
YAY, it's the weekend!! I love the weekends.
Weekends = more time with my family.

I just hafff to tell you what happened to me.
I was snoozing along so good, when Momma woke me up.
And what did she wake me up for??? To change my shirt.
Can ya believe that?! Well, I figured, since I am already up
I might as well play and have some fun.
So, after Momma got my "woof woof" shirt on me....we played
a quick game of tug-o-war with my toys....and a short game
of fetch.

And here is the story in photographs:

ZZZzzzzZZZzzzz (me, sleeping)

ZzzzZZzzzzzzzZZZ, me, STILL sleeping (despite
the flash that just went off)

"Oh brother, is this all you woke me up for?"

"Come on....throw that ball...come on...throw it!!"

" threw it under
the couch, Momma.....Get it!!!"

"Come on, come on...get it for me please,
before I chew your fingers off" (it just LOOKS
like I am eating Momma's hand, I am really
being very gentle)

"Oohh, STOP IT, hahaaa, ohhh, haha hahah, ohhhh ahh,
stop tickling me, Momma....tee heee arrfff"

Some peace and quiet with my ball.
Momma thinks I have "froggy-doggy"
legs here....but I don't.

She took another photo just to
prove that I have "froggy-doggy"
legs. I don't think they look like
froggy legs, do you?
So guess what I did?
I took the camera from her and
took these photos of HER~!
tee hee hee
This is my Momma trying to be
like Tanner..... a dOoFuS !!
Until later,
P.S. This afternoon when Momma came home
from work, I did what I always do (jump up in
her lap as soon as she sits down). But, this
time was different.....she had an intoxicating
scent on her!! I could not get enough of it; I
just sniffed and sniffed her shirt and pants and
would not stop. And then, it dawned on me
what that scent was: ANOTHER DOG!!!
Why in the world did my Momma have another
dog's scent on her clothes?? Did she visit a friend's
house on her lunch break?? Did she find a doggy
outside her work building and pet it?? Did someone
at her office bring their doggy to work?? Gosh, I just
haffff to know.

Wednesday, March 21, 2007 Pups!

Do ya'll remember back a few posts, when I told you about the egg I found?
Well, I think I found who hatched from that egg!!!
While on one of my walkies recently, I found this little bird sitting in almost the
same exact spot as where the egg was! I sniffed it and barked at it, but it did
not move. Momma held me back so she could check to see if it was alive....and
it was.
Well, we left it alone and then, a few days showed up on our
doorstep!! It was sitting on the brick overhang right
below our doorbell. I guess he was trying to ring it so he could come inside.
Anyway, after getting some photos, Momma gently picked it up, trying not
to get her scent on it....and placed it safely in the back yard.
After doing a little research, Momma believes it is a Mourning Dove. There
are a lot of them around here and we see them in the trees and on the ground
a lot.

Here I am sniffing at the lil' fella.

He was not moving very much and did not
seem scared of us.

He can't reach the doorbell!!

What a cute lil' face!

This is Momma, moving the dove to saftey.

Until later,

Important Information: I Hate Cats.

Okay, there is something you need to know about me:
I hate cats.
They annoy me.
When I see one, I can't resist the urge to freakin' lose my mind!! My eyes get as big
as saucers, my fur stands on end, my nostrils flare, and I bark until I lose my voice!!
Nothing, and I do mean nothing, can stop me from barking. I do my best barking
when I see a cat.
Momma just happened to get an opportunity this weekend to snap these photos of me
barking at a stupid, orange cat that was in our back yard.
OOouhhh.....ouuuuhhh, if I had not been
leashed.....I woulda'....I woulda'....I woulda' ......well, you can imagine what I
woulda' done!

I was sitting on Momma's lap, just enjoying
the breeze blowing my fur....and then,

I immediately jumped off her lap and ran to
the end of my leash to make sure of what I
was seeing.

I had to get up on my hind legs to make sure
it was a cat.

Oh heck yeah, it IS a CAT.....the barking begins.
"Get out of here you stinkin' cat"

I was barking so fiercely that my head movements
blurred the camera!
"I said get out of here you dumb cat"

Whew....after all that barking, I had to
come inside and rest ...on my favorite
resting spot, next to Momma in the recliner.
It looks like Momma is sitting on me,
but she's not!

SEE!! haha, I am just curled right up
next to her leg!

By the way, the meanie-lawn-mower-man
cut down all my sweet clover!! Can you
believe it!?! I shoulda' barked at him!

Just look at the difference in my favorite clover now!
There is nothing left.
Meanie Mower Man!!!

Momma took this photo of me trying to hide
in the thicket near our house. Can you see me?!?
I tried to learn how to hide from Murphey
and Joe Stains. I think I need more

I just had to share this photo of my Sissy. I
think she looks like a "SuperStar"! I love
my Sissy.

Until later,
