Dog for Sale

Hi all!

Mom got lazy and didn't want to let me on to blog last weekend, she ran out and rode that HORSE I know.. I could smell it on her, plus she bought that thing a gigantic sweater to wear, it's the biggest coat I've ever seen! It could cover about 30 Bedlingtons! Gracious...

Anyway, Rags is still here. He's for sale since his owners said they didn't want him back. (sad face) They asked their neighbor if they'd like him and they said no, too. He's very good; he's only chewy which is normal for 8 months old. His owners didn't like to crate or pen him up so of course he chewed up stuff like rugs, plants, and antique furniture. Poor Rags. We make sure he doesn't do that over here. Mom is good at that!

But I'm going to be SO GLAD to see him go -- he still messes with my woman, but Josie says to mind my own business. I get back at him, I steal his toys and dare him to take 'em back!

I usually take the toy and lay here like so and dare him to take it from me. Mom says I make the funniest sounds at Rags -- half whine, half moan. That's my "I mean it" sound!

He doesn't care much, nothing bothers Rags. Dennis caught him one day napping in his bed UNDER his cushion. You can only see his head!

One day Mom found a LOT of water all over the kitchen floor near our water dish and couldn't decide if someone drank too much water and burped it up, or someone had a big accident next to the water dish. THEN she set the bowl out in the floor and caught Rags doing this! I think he's stopped doing that now. (MOM: yeah! no more mopping)

But Rags is mostly pretty good; he gets along with everyone and he's learning what "do you want to go outside?" means, although he chews his bed during the day so Mom's pretty tired of sewing it up again. He's got more toys to chew in his pen so maybe he won't do that so much. He's going to need another bath soon -- Mom says besides muddy dog feet, she hates having stinky dogs! Aw poo.

Rags is sure a handsome boy!
We think it's funny that he digs in his water dish and makes a mess! We're always getting our beards wiped so we totally understand about water everywhere!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Rags looks like a ton of fun! You and your human are most excellent to foster him. We will be sending all sorts of positive vibes for him to find a forever home soon.

We are not going to the Louisville trial... (wah!!!) I would have to move up from Novice in Jumpers and the servant isn't ready for that yet. I showed her **I* was ready beause I did all TWELVE weaves today for the first time, with my head down and just weavin' my whippet fanny like crazy!

maybe we'll see you somewhere else when the servant is better trained.

He is a handsome young lad.. Louie chews things up too but like you said they are just puppies.. We almost have one of mom's rugs torn in half playing tug-a-war. hehe Mom says we will buy a new one once Louie gets over his chewing stage..

Hey Rudy!

I was hoping to make it over to see you yesterday - I'm sure you're already here and might not even have internet access/time to check your messages. Anyway Mom's really busy for the next two days and her sister decided to drop down for a visit. We'll see about dropping by sometime this weekend.

Hope you're having a good time.
