Thus, the long awaited "MEETING" the moment both My Vickie and Goose's Mom have feared. And this is how it went.
Allred comes home from his two day "Walk-a-bout" and parks himself directly in front of the gate that leads through the kitchen to the doggy door.
Goose waking up from a long rest spots Allred
Goose wants Allred to run so he can chase him.
Allred just ignores him
Goose slips around through the bedroom and into the kitchen the back way, hoping to startle Allred into running.
Allred doesn't care.
"Come on Allred.....Run will ya...run"
"Bite me Goose, you lilly-livered quasi irritant"
"What do you mean Quasi Irritant"
"My mom is gonna get you for calling me names."
"Be gone with you, you namby-pamby K-9 milksop"
I would disembowel him, but what to do with the eight meters of intestine.....Now for a quick update on the fly repellent we are using.
Many of you have asked if it works and where to buy them.
Well My Vickie is the eternal optimist so she is just darn sure that the flies are much less annoying as they were before she put up the Twister on the back porch.
Every year we have a ton of flies that congregate at the back door and every time one of us critters goes through the doggy door, two or three nasty flies come in with us.
She had read about the pennies being placed in a clear plastic bag with water then hanging them in places where flies come into the house. We tried it but it didn't work so well.
Then one day she saw this copper wind twister with a beautiful crystal in it at the local hardwood store. She figured the copper would be the same as pennies but bigger so she bought it and hooked it up by the back door.
The sun shines there most of the day and we were all amazed that within five minutes there were NO flies. Seriously. Plus, along with a pretty twister, we get all those neat rainbow colors on the wall from the crystal.
You can find various sizes of Wind Twisters at Lowes, Home Depot, or other hardwood or home and garden suppliers. They cost anywhere from $9.99 to $25.00 bucks.
So today we went and bought three more and placed them through out the kennel. The first thing we noticed on one is that this bee was not bothered at all and that made My Vickie happy cause we need the bees to help pollinate our garden. But the flies all went somewhere else.
So if you try it, let us know if it works for you cause My Vickie is hoping she isn't crazy as a loon, seeing things that aren't really there. You know what I mean.
Have a nice weekend everyone.
