April Showers... and tornadoes!!

Well, we didn't get a tornado-- but a town just up the road, McKinney got one. A friend of my Daddy's (anudder stereo nut, I mean "aficionado") lives in McKinney and was sending Dad texts of the damage to the house two doors down from him-- well, what wuz left of da house!! Some other small towns suffered some damage, too-- and some places got hail.

We didn't even get enough rain to water the lawn...Momma had to go back out after da storm and turn da sprinklers back on!! We only gets to water da lawn ev'ry udder week cuz of some mus-cue-lar zebras or sumthin' cloggin' up some pipes from one lake to anudder... how zebras fit inta da pipes is beyond me....

Dey is buildin' a pipeline from Lake Texoma to da water plant down near here but it aren't done yet. So if you skip your waterin' day, ev'rything could die and da would ruin Momma's gardens.

Today it were cooler, only 69 fur da high, and we gots us a nice walk. It were sunny and we didn't spy any zombiez on our patrol-- well, maybe some skwirrel zombiez and a Cat-a-hula dog that looked like it might be a zombie...I mean what kinda dog is named after hulaing cats? I ain't nevfur even seen a cat do the hula... da Mommaz has some hula exorcise tapes, but da cats always sleep thru dem, they don't pawticipate... in fact, Whit and me do more hulaing than da kitties duz...

Momma trimmed my hairs recently... she said I wuz lookin' kinda unkempt cuz I had been itchy and scritched off some of my furs a coupla months ago... so she trimmed me up. Here's a pic...


I's been told by Whit's Momma dat dis cut makes me look younger. Hmmm.....

Well, dat's all for now-- da weather dis weekend is supposed to be kinda cloudy and rainy on Sunday. Yuckers!


Bark ya later, gators!

A Sad Farewell

This mornin' my bestest kitty buddy, Jezebel, passed away...

I wuz so upset I went and hid on a pile of fabric in my Momma's sewing room. Who will I's snuggle with? I's been on dis Earth almost 8 years and dey wuz all spent with Miss Jez except for the first weeks... She wuz da one who would counter surf fur me... she snagged da food and would bring it down to shares it wiff me....She's da onliest animal I'd let into Momma and Daddy's bed wiffout protestin'.... cuz she were my buddy. She taught me to respect da kitties and treats dem right. She snuggled wiff me when it were cold. She hung out wiff me and scouted out da outside through da windows....

She were my friend.

Rest in Peace, sweet girl.

WOE IS ME, I'S GOT SOME FOOD ALLERGEES....

Well, da gud news is dat I'm not allegick to any meatz. Yea for me! Da bad news is I's allergic to corn, white potatoes, eggs and alfalfa (I ain't a guinea pig or a horse so alfalfa is no biggie). I's been on grain free food fur some time, so da corn ain't a big factor-- just means I won't never get no corn chips or an occasional Cap'n Crunch piece...no taters, evfur, no tater chip, no mashed taters, no left over french fries... and worst of all, NO EGGIE WEGGIES! No lickin' da egg plates, nope, nuthin' no more...

Dat sux. Sigh.....

 Some other things I tested allergick to years ago I didn't test allergick to dis time... guess da allergee shots musta worked on those thangs... but I'm allergick to some new stuff, like da maple tree next door dat da naybor don't rake da leaves and dey blow inta my yard...grrrr.... So Dr. Sean is gonna get me my sublingual goo to take under my tongue to take da place of da allergee shots... so's I won't be a pincushion no more. Hope dis stuff works.

No eggie weggies.... ratz.

***Everybuddy-- look on my list of Dogster bloggers-- Luna, Hobo & Milo now have a blog and so duz Miss Ko Min and Miss Mazy.... go give 'em a howdy!*******

Pardon me while I gets waterboarded....
