Allred Speaks UP Again

NOTE:  we don't know what is wrong but we have tried to leave comments on many of your blogs but are not allowed.  My Vickie thinks it is a personal grudge that google has for her.  Anyway, we didn't want you to think we weren't keeping up. 

Before I leave the room and let Allred (Devil Cat) take over my blog, I just wanted to let you all know how much I love My Whitney.    You may remember, I told you in an earlier post that she is My Vickie's niece. 

She has started doing the therapy work with us at the hospital and will soon test with me so she and I can be a team too. 

We don't get to talk a lot about who we meet and what we do at the hospital but I can tell you this.
 When we went to the hospital this week we were privledge enough to meet a young man who had just had open heart surgery a few hours before we got there.  My Whitney immediatly won this young man over.  He was nervous and afraid of what was happening to him, but after talking with her he was comforted and he even smiled.

You see, My Whitney has had open heart surgery twice now and she was able to help this young man see that things do get better and that life can be good.   And the thing is, she is wonderful with all of the patients.  I mean, yes, I am the coolest, but she has a beautiful smile and a tender and understanding heart that makes everyone calm and serene when she comes in the room.

We love that she is working with us.......
At the kennel tonight we are getting ready for a huge storm that is supposed to hit the Wasatch Front.  They are warning us about hurrican force winds so today after we got back from the VA home, My Vickie and I went about securing everything we could think of.
 While the others played and ran around, enjoying some really nice weather, we went thru the place and found flashlights, candles and other survival stuff.  Our Search Gear is a great place to find anything that will be needed.
 Tonight is when it is supposed to start, we are already getting warning reports on the TV and radios so all my friends who usually get to run and play until bed time, are all locked into their rooms and secured for the night.  We have so many trees here on the property that My Vickie wants to make sure no one is wandering around in case a tree blows down.

So keep your paws crossed, this has really made my vickie a little nervous. 
 As promised, I am leaving the room so Allred can say something that has been on his mind.  I didn't exactly get asked if he could write something, I was sort of TOLD that he WOULD be talking so just to be safe....Off I go.

As Well you should you twirp....Allred here and I just want to say a few things about the way I have been portrayed in the last week or so.  First let me say, the little pup did not really get slapped by me......

I was just telling him that there are ways things are done around here and that he should learn quickly what they are.   These newbies need to learn the rules and I just don't have the time nor do I have the patience to teach each of them gently.  LEARN THE RULES....
 They are simple rules.  As you can see, Bert has learned one of them. 
  1.  Do NOT come into the kitchen when I am here.
  2.  Do NOT get within five feet of me when I am in a bad mood
  3.  Do NOT bug me.....EVER.....
  4.  Stay out of my way at all times. 
  5.  Do Not drink water from my personal bowl. 
  6.  If I catch a mouse and bring it in the house....IT IS MY MOUSE.....
the mouse rule applys to you too Vickie.  I am tired of catching them, bringing them in and hiding them under the couch so I can eat them later and having you always taking them away.   I would think you would have figured it out by now that if you take it away, I am just going to go out and get another one.  It is what I do........I KILL THINGS.

You should all remember that.
Finally, for all you blogville friends of Bert who beleive everything he says,  check out this picture.  That is me and Ellie Mae.  Now does that look like a mean and dangerous cat to you.  Does that look like the devil sleeping next to the big ole goofy houndog? long are you going to fall for Berts whining little complaints. 

Let me leave you with this thought:

Be Yourself.
Nobody is better qualified.

This is my moto.

I do hope everyone is safe from the storm. And how wonderful that you have your Whitney. I know the two of you will be awesome!

Little note to Allred: You don't fool me one little bit.

Paws crossed you stay safe! Your Whitney sounds like am amazing girl

I hope the storm wasn't too bad. Allred - that is a bit gross about the mice. You really should eat them while they are fresh. Leaving them around to rot and stink before you eat them is something a DOG would do!

GOOSE said...

Remember if things get blown around and over my MOM (and me) are just a phone call away and can be there in a snap.

Whitney is a keeper for sure.

After seeing the last photo of Devil Cat I am so confused. Is he on meds? Did Your Vickie sedate him? Did he “drink” too much? This just does not make sense.
Ellie Mae is one BRAVE hound.

I hope the storm is over and everybody is safe.
Good you are going to work with Whitney too.

Dearest Bert and his Miss Vickie, I have my paws crossed that you will all weather the storm with no problems.

wooos, Tessa

pee s...can you please let Allred outside BEFORE the storm hits!

Scrappy Angel said...

Stay safe. That sounds scary!

Whitney, though, sounds amazing!

Allred sounds a little strict.

And apparently is fooling someone.

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Hi Bert and Allred (gulp). Good luck with the storm. We hope you are all fine. Allred, we would give you all the space you need. More if you want it. No worries (gulp) and love, Stella and Rory

Waggin at ya,

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

As soon as I saw the title of this post... I took my Ernie and we went out to POOP. You KNOW that Allred SCARES me, Right? I wanted to be sure and not embarrass myself.

I hope and PRAY that the horrible windy weather passes you by without doing any damage!!!

Blogger does that to ME sometimes. I had it on just one post this morning, butt it really makes me go Grrrrrrrrrr.

Oh how super that is that the surgery patient felt so much better after the visit.
Now about that LAST pic of Allred... I do NOT believe that is REAL.. I think Allred Photoshopped that dog in there. No dog would REALLY sleep next to the DEVIL CAT. Yep... Allred Photoshopped it all right.
Oh Bert... I do NOT know how in the WORLD you can LIVE with "HIS" rules. Heck Sakes... I don't know how you Live with HIM. You are the mostest BRAVE dog in all of Blogville. Did I mention that Allred SCARES ME???
PeeS.. If you could talk Allred into going OUT during the wind...
I'm just sayin buddy.

Whisppy said...

We KNEW you didn't deserve the name Devil Cat!

We hope the storm doesn't cause any damage...stay safe everyone!

Minnie and Mack said...

Hi Bert! It's wonderful that you are working with the patients and making them feel better!
We also wanted to let you know that we received your Christmas Card. How did you convince Hallmark to put your face on that card? Anyway, it's our first one! You get the seat of honor.

Please be safe in that storm that's coming your way. We'll check back in tomorrow and keep our paws crossed for everyone.

Drools and licks,
Minnie and Mack

Ina in Alaska said...

Great and interesting post! We are hoping good hopes for the young heart transplant person. He is lucky to have reassurance from your lovely niece Whitney!

Also hope the storm passed. That can be very scary.

Allred, the mice taste better OUTSIDE! You are a superb hunter!

Curt Rogers said...

I'm thinking good, safe thoughts for you all. And Duncan thanks you for saving enough snow that you could send it t Denver for him to play in. I, on the other hand, am less than amused. Grrrr!

The Army of Four said...

We hope and pray you guys are all safe!
Your Whitney sounds like quite the wonderful biped. I'd turn into goo if she smiled that smile at me. How is she at tummy rubs?
Allred - Zim believes you, but I"m not too sure. I think I'm smart enough to stay away from you, though.

Have you tried using Chrome as your browser? From what I've seen online, that is the number one way to fix the commenting problem. I've been using Chrome for a long time now and haven't had any commenting issues (other than my own lack of coming up with something to say, that is).

Allred, weare beginning you are one of those multisided personalities. We mistaken the good ones would appear more regularly :).

Paws crossed the storm won't be too bad and you are all kept safe.

KB said...

I wonder if it's the same storm as we're having now. It seems like more than a foot of snow out there, and "they" keep warning of high winds (but the winds haven't arrived yet). I hope that you and all the pups are safe. Yes, and even Allred too!

Working Whitney sounds wonderful. You are such a good dog, Bert.

As for you, Allred, I don't what to make of you. Perhaps you need a psychiatrist to help with your multiple personality disorder? Or, an exorcist? :)

Charlotte said...

even in the storm there is this lovely flower... oh my dearest Bert!
Your Whitney is a wonderful girl and I can understand how much you like to work with her! You and your Vicky are doing a great job!
And Allred...camouflaging and deception as far as the last picture is concerned...
All my love - Charlotte

Hope you are all safe. Cuddle up to your Vickie!

Allred: No comments for you because all cats are bipolar, and I will stay true to my furiend Bert :-)

Ryker said...

I love you Allred! May you all do well throughout the storm and have little to clean up (as in fallen trees and blownaway roof tiles like we get sometimes).
Bert, you and Whitney make a wonderful team!

2browndawgs said...

Hope the storm isn't too bad. That Allred kind of scares me...

Molly the Airedale said...

Our paws are crossed that you are safe from this storm!
Your Whitney sounds like an angel, Bert. Our dad mentors at our hospital and helps out people waiting for heart transplants because he knows exactly what they're going through.

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Miss Sophie said...

I have never met Whitney, but she is the cat's meow! What a special young lady with a smile to make you melt. As to Allred, personally, I find him purrrfectly fascinating. No,I have not forgotten the nice little slice he carved into my nose when we first met, but it is so fun to bounce up and down outside of his castle and watch him curl those lips and bare his hooks. Don't worry Allred, I'm coming to visit soon!

CreekHiker / HollysFolly said...

Hope you guys are safe and sound... It's been nutty here in So Cal... Another round of winds tomorrow... yay

Sagira said...

Allred sure is scary. Glad I don't have to go face to face with him.
