Happy Endings and Hopeful Hearts

We had a really fun email come last night that we thought we would share with everyone.  Remember Jake the homeless Hound?  Well Check this out.

Hey all you pooches there at K-9 !! Look at me, Jay keeps telling me that I must have decided this is my home, I'm not too shy at getting into things anymore!

That nasty cat is out to try my patience though. We have a doggie door that is in one of the bedrooms, just across the hall is another bedroom that Mikey (magic cat) calls home. He thinks he's pretty top stuff cause he can do what ever he wants in that room, (I am not allowed in), well, I keep a pretty good eye on him. I don't want him doing anything without me knowing about it!!!! But I'm telling you, he is magic, like I said, I keep a pretty good eye on him, but do you know that he can get outside without me seeing?? I think he's magic, first he's in his room, then the next thing I know he is outside on the window ledge irritating me. I obviously can't get to him there either. Then when it gets dark, where do I find him? Back on his royal highness' throne in his room!!!! Man, how does he do it?

Things are pretty nice here, only when it snows, I'm not too fond of that stuff. Jay says, "yep, that's my dog!" So I usually just stay in by the fire, it is so nice.

Well, I better go, hope to see you guys soon


Isn't that the best email ever.  We are so glad, because Jake's new family learned about him through our blog.  I mean they are old friends of My Vickie but because they read MY BLOG the found out about Jake......

So we hope we aren't pushin our luck but we thought we would try again.

You see James Dean and his humans have been fostering Rocky.  Rocky is about 4 years old, he loves people and he loves all of us other dogs too. 

He is a total clown at our place and we have all fallen in love with him.
 So help us spread the word if you can to all those Basset lovers out there. 
 And might I add, that My Vickie says...."If you have never owned a basset, you'll never understand what farceur  (yes that is a word) truly is.
And here is a final note.  My friend James Dean also gave me this cool shirt to wear.
You might notice it makes reference to Tennis balls.  Ha Ha James Dean.

But I thank you from the bottom of my belly....haha back.

Of course, much to my and My Vickie's dismay, it is too small for my big old golden body so If you are OK with it, I thought I would send it to my girl Charlotte.  My Vickie says she has a shirt that was worn by her first, no second love and that she will always keep it.  Do you think Charlotte will cherish this?

Put that Super Shirt in your bed for 87 hours furst... THEN send it. She'll fur SURE Cherish it after that.

GOOSE said...

MOM is so happy that Jake is happy. She really liked him lots.
Man Bert this Charlotte thing is getting serious. I mean having her wear your shirt? I would suggest that you send her that hat you were wearing in the last post. It seems to me that THAT hat is just her style.
Welp I best go now. MOM is taking me to the Fort.

Murphy said...

Hmmm . . . a shirt is serious business. I think you have to ask yourself where you see this relationship in the coming years. I gotta go with Goose's hat idea. I hope Rocky finds a forever home. But he might need a home that's a duplex because it looks like by the time the end part of him gets through the door, his front part will have already left the house. He's like a stretch limo of dogs! I bet you can find him a place Bert. Good luck to you!

That shirt is great, by the way!

So happy for Jake & hoping Rocky finds a nice home soon. Both look like sweet pups!

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

Yea, Jake! Good luck, Rocky! And yes, Charlotte will love the shirt [although we don't see why your Vickie can't wear it, as a sort of walking advertisement/warning to other Retriever moms]. Now we need to back-track to be sure we haven't missed any posts. Why would Allred be mad at Nellie?

The Furries of Whisppy said...

That is such a nice shirt. Love that tennis ball reference...We're sure Charlotte would love it, but make sure you sleep on it for a few days first.

Shane Kent Louis said...

I'm glad that Jake is okay now. It will be more better if Rocky will find his home too.

Charlotte said...

Oh my Darling - I would love to wear this wonderful shirt! It's not only because I love this powerful green - a perfect color for the spring - but the fact you will "wear" it before... oh how fantastic, than you are totally near to me. I really would be honored to wear the shirt like a ring!
Love, Hugs and Kisses Your Charlotte

Hi Bert, wonderful news about Jake. The T Shirt is so funny and cool. Charlotte will love it especially if you sleep with it for a while first. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

Charlotte said...

Dearest Bert - it's me again. Just want to inform you that my mom Nisha thanks you for your birthdaywishes. She wrote on my blog to you...
Hope you have a nice day my wonderful golden prince!

Good work getting the word out about Jake. Now he is one happy camper and his new forever hoomans are too. Whoopie!! We hope that Rocky's farceur helps to win him a forever home real soon. He sure is adorable with those long floppy ears. Nice new shirt. Too bad you're too fat. BOL! Charlotte will probably LOVE it since it's from you.
Smooches from pooches,
BabyRD & Hootie

Yay Jake! What a sweetie! I sure hope Rocky finds a loving forever home too! Basset definitely are "Jokers". I think Charlotte will love your shirt!

snoopy@snoopysdogblog said...

Hey Bert,

So cool to hear Jake is doing well, sounds like he has his work cut out with the Cat though!!

Let's hope Rocky can get his forever home too just like he deserves - I'm gonna tweet it - :)

Have a fun day buddy (how much longer until you can go out?)

Your pal Snoopy :)

The Army of Four said...

Hooray for Jake! That's really wonderful news! We hope something really cool happens for Rocky, too!
Play bows,

The Thuglets said...

That's fab news about Jake. We hope Rocky soon finds his new forever home.
we think Charlotte will be well impressed with your shirt Bert. However, we are a bit concerned that if you ain't careful a disease called "love sickness" may impede you recovery.

Nice shirt!

Patrice and Higgins said...

Aww, I am so happy for Jake and I will keep my paws crossed for Rocky!

That shirt is awesome!! BOL!!


keli said...

Bert, I think the boxers are trying to keep you safe and extra warm so you'll heal faster! And, nothing against Sweet Charlotte, but I think you need to keep that shirt - give it to someone you live with so that you can see it and be reminded that 3 tennis balls in your mouth is better than 1 in your tummy. (Hey, do you think that may become a famous adage some day?! "Three tennis balls in the mouth is better than one in the tummy" haha!)
