Aren't computers fun. Like I can take this picture of me and with just a few clicks of the mouse (mouse, thats a funny word for that little mechanical thing) anyway a few clicks and I can make my handsome self look like, well, even more handsome and in different ways. Very cool. Of course, I am the perfect model to use for a click like that. Don't you agree?

THE SNOW IS HERE. YAHOO... Cooper sent me a picture of him and his buds on their first trip snowshoing in Yellowstone. He also wanted to thank you all for supporting him while he was living with us waiting for the perfect home to come along.

Looks like it did......

Mystery sent this picture of her front yard up in the mountains above Huntsville. Isn't she beautiful...... Look out Annie, I may just be having a crush on an older girl.

And of Course MURHPY, my bud, he sent this picture of him and Bill sleeping off a very long and funfilled day. Mmmmm wonder where Paulette is going to sleep.

WEll, I have to admit, I almost (almost) felt sorry for Allred this week. See he has had this sore on his side for about a year now. Vickie took him to the doctor and they gave him medicine that helped heal the sore, or at least stopped it from showing on his body for a little while.
But it came back and this time it was worse. So this week when I went in to get my yearly vacinations, Allred went with us.
When it was time to leave, Allred stayed there. I was ecstatic. Yeah....Dr. Doughty must have fallen in love with Allred and decided to take him home.
I came home and told the others. We were all so happy. What better place for a sick ole mean ole cat to live than at the vets house. It was the perfect idea.
Sadly, around 6 pm that same night, up drives Dr. Doughty and in he comes with.....
Yep you guessed it.
He looked like he had been dragged behind a truck, with his side all shaved and cut up and this drain coming out like a big ole tapeworm from his insides.
Dr. Doughty wasn't keeping him after all. He had just done surgery on him and brought him back home.
Honestly I felt a little sorry for him cause he looked pretty rough and I guess he doesn't feel real good cause he is more honery than ever now.
You should have seen him come after poor tristy for NO GOOD REASON. (Granted he may have thought she was me)

But there we were all standing in the kitchen helping Vickie prepare breakfast for HERSELF the next morning, when out of the living room charges the big EVIL DEVIL CAT.
He came in and viciously, for no good reason, no reason at all, attacked Tristy right on the rump. Allred just grabbed hold of her with his fangs and hung on while poor Tristy, who by the way had done NOTHING wrong, and wouldn't let go.
She was so surprised as were all the rest of us. Even Vickie couldn't beleive it. It took her a whole ten seconds to catch up with poor Tristy to remove the large striped demon that was biting and scratching the poor inocent dog.
So even though Allred is sick and may even have some kind of bone cancer (they are not sure yet) I still DON'T like or trust him.
Thank goodness for snow and all the fun that comes with it. Like walks in the park,
Digging for walnuts

Meeting new Blue Eyed friends

Don't ya just love this guys eyes?
I think Blue eyes were the color of the week. Even Tonner has one blue eye. The other is brown. How cool is that.

It was SOOOOO cold this week so even though we loved the snow, there was nothing like being able to come inside and get warm, stretch out on the beds and siesta.
Moab settles in for a rest.
Ottis starts to drop off.
Jamie is out cold
We had a ton of Golden Retrievers Staying over the
Thanksgiving Holiday as you can see
Daila warms up after a long play.
And of course a good night sleep for me.
A Sunday Jaunt during a snow storm.

And off to bed again.
A new week starts in a few hours so I need to get plenty of rest.
I hope you all had a very Happy Thanksgiving. I didn't get any turkey but I did get lots of great times. I guess food isn't everything.
Love ya

Just Got this, this very moment. A Happy Thanksgiving wish for all of us from our old pal Cooper who is happily living in Montana, so thought I'd share it with you....

Hi to Vickie, Bert and the old gang....I am very happy in Montana and wanted to Thank-you and wish all a Happy Turkey Day............Cooper (Randi,Steve and Gunner) Hulett

Oh Bad Boy, Bad Boy, Bad Boy. That is me right. BIG BAD BOY. And not in the term "Bad Boy" like cool, laid back Fonzie kind of Bad Boy, BUT "BAD BAD BAD BAD BAD BERT BOY"

Vickie is so mad at me right now that the only thing I can do is Stay the heck out of her way for a couple of hours.

Oh I really really did it.

I am in so much trouble right now that the best thing for me to do is just dissappear for a bit. So off I go to the back room for my HUGE TIME OUT. I'll be back in a bit, or maybe a long bit to finish the blog for this week.

OK, so I am back. Still not sure if Vickie forgives me yet. She has not even looked at me for about two hours. I am going to tread really lightly for the next little while.

I will fill you in on the week though cause, a writer has to be able to write, even when his heart is broken because the one he loves is mad at him. so here goes. I am gonna "Toughin Up" for you.

So we had a big new building put up so that we have even more shelter from the sun in the year 2011 and on. It was fun to watch them put it up and it has been a great way to be able to stay outside and play, even during the snow storm we had Saturday and Sunday.

So I went for a walk on Friday and when I got back, Tubbs was gone. Now I know that last week I complained a bit about Tubbs,

The hanging on me, bumping me, knocking me down, the slobbering, oh yea….and the snoring.

But now that he is gone

I kind a miss him.

Like when we all went to bed, we had a hard time getting to sleep because we didn’t have that rhythmic snorting sound he made as he breathed in and out while he slept.

And the water bowl, was all clean and fresh without any of that salty slobber that it had when ever Tubbs drank from it first.

And now I have to be the one who Daila tackles ALL DAY LONG cause Tubbs isn’t here anymore to play with her.

Yep, I hate to admit it, but I am gonna miss the little guy.

Oh the Seasons. Don’t’ ya just love the changing of the seasons.

Like today, the clouds have filled the sky with darkness and the wind is blowing through the last of the leaves, yet to fall.

And even though it is dark and dreary, I am WAY BUZZED.

SNOW IS COMIN. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow but IT IS COMIN. And I LOVE SNOW.

Me and Vickie just love being outside right now, waiting for that first big flake to fall into our mouths as we try and catch them when they fall.

So Cool

This is my Third Winter. The first one kind of scared me because when it snowed too much, I would have a really rough time getting my little body through the drifts.

But now, I AM A BIG BOY and No snow is gonna stop me. I just cant wait.

I am a little upset that Vickie got to go up in the mountains Friday without me. But it was to get the ATV’s and well, I just don’t really like the ATV’s.

But she took one last ride with her friends and she said it was AMAZING. AMAZING.

My friends at the Day Care and those staying overnight have all taken advantage of the last bit of fall weather here and I have gotten to spend a lot of time with them. Maximus and Doc are the youngest ones here and I have a lot of fun with them.

Gracie and Larry spend most of the day sleeping so I don't spend much time playing with them.

But there is the new guy, Jasper. WE can really get into some wild playing when Vickie lets us. I am a bit taller than Jasper but he is a lot more powerful than me. Mostly we just wrestle but sometimes the fun gets a little out of hand and we have to be separated.

Heres a short video of the fun times this week at CCC.

I have been training really hard for my new mystery job. We get to travel a lot in the training and even more when I get my certification.

It gives me lots of personal time with Vickie plus I get to play with Paulette and Murphy every day too. Oh and don't forget my little buddy Wally.

I'm getting pretty good at my job too. If I get really good, then Vickie will never get mad at me again. WEll, if I get good and if I stop doing what I did today. Cause I was a BAd Bad BAD Boy.

Even reminding her that Allred is still here and alive has not made her any happier with me. I really goofed big time.

I guess I'll go sleep it off. Maybe she will for get by morning.

Nighty Night Everyone. Pray for me. I'm gonna need it.

And if you are still up for it, heres a short video of the youngins playing this week at CCC.

Wasn't I just about the cutest thing ever. Sometimes when I go through Vickies old pictures and see pictures of when I was just a wee little boy, well I am just amazed that Vickie doesn't go out and get ten more of me.

I just figured everyone should have a puppy, all the time.....that is until Tubbs came to stay with us.

Meet Tubbs..... Oh my gosh, talk about a ball of fire, a tornado on four legs, a food vacume, a moving brick wall.... He is in my face ALL THE TIME, he tackles me as I am going out the dog door, he tackles me as I am coming in the dog door, he tackles me when I am trying to go to the bathroom.

He is everywhere, all the time......Heaven help me.....Allred is starting to look good to me.

OH and did I mention the snoring! Oh my heck you can feel the floor rumble, the curtains swing in and out with each snort, the birds living in the tree outside have moved away just so they can get some sleep at night. Vickie actually wears ear plugs when she goes to bed.

Thank goodness he is not living here permanantely. He isn't Is He Vickie?????? Please Please of all things good and gracious tell me he is not living with us.Thank goodness for my dear friends the Kellys and Jennifer and Blake. They still come and take me away from all of this (From Tubbs) for a few hours every few days.

Austin and me took a fun hike this week. Austin tried to get some pictures from my point of view. Pretty cool, don't ya think?

We came to this bench on the walk and Auzzie was gonna sit on it but I beat him to it. After he took the picture he came and sat by me. Blake and Jennifer came on Saturday but they didn't take me, they took Mesa and Pixie. But that is ok cause Vickie and I had just gotten back from our hike.
I guess I can tolerate Tubbs for a few more days, that is if Vickie, Austin, Nathan, Alex, Blake and Jennifer keep taking me outa here. (I am so lucky, I have so many cool friends.)

Oh we had a really No No NO experience this week. But for once, it wasn't involving me and somthing dumb, it was ALL Vickie. Yep, she has been moaning and groaning for the last few weeks about how bad her hair looks and that she should go and get it trimmed but she never gets a chance.
One day this week I see her go to the cupboard and grab some scissors.
Oh NO Vickie NO NO NO Don't do it, dont do it yourself Vickie don't.
But she ignored my mental message of concern and went into the other room and started cutting.
Oh, this is bad.....Soooooo Sooooo Bad......So very very bad.
Let me just end with this......
If you are wondering why Vickie is walking around in good weather and bad weather with that silly white hat on her head..........
Well Now You Know "The Rest of the Story.......
I am off to my comfy bed.... and just so you know, I took those scissors and hid them just incase she gets it into her head that I NEED A HAIRCUT........NEVER NEVER NEVER......
oh and heres some pics from this week at the kennel
Have a great week
