The Mystery of Marley

Roscoe, Monty and Henry here with a true story.

We have a cousin named Marley who is surrounded by a deep mystery.

Late one evening, it was close to Christmas, our Uncle Den and Auntie Kris returned home from a people outing with friends.

As the opened the door they could hear some not human noises.  They crept carefully into their home (we might have done this different).  In the center of the entryway floor sat a large crate, the noise was coming from this crate.  They slowly approached the crate and peered in. (Does this really seem wise and safe?)

Not to fear!  Inside was the cutest puppy ever, our cousin Marley.

That is when the big fight broke out.  The deal was no more puppies and they accused each other of bringing a puppy home.  (People are not very smart, they were together all evening so a third human had to have brought that puppy into their home.)

Well they couldn’t kick a puppy into the street so they decided to keep him until they could decide what to do with him.  One day turned into two, days turned into weeks, weeks turned into months and Marley has been there now for years.

Auntie and Uncle never did figure out the giver of Marley had to have a key to the house….  Us dogs can keep a secret and we won’t ever tell.

P.S.  Our Mom really had nothing to do with the Marley mystery but because she is our Mom so she does know who the culprit is and has promised not to tell.  Don’t keep secrets from your Mom.

Redefined by Cancer

Yay!  What a relief to get good results from a mammogram!

Some days I feel like I am on a roller coaster.  I have been waiting at the highest point of that roller coaster for over a week for the result.  Anxiety building. Today I coasted down the tracks, an exhilarating and happy ride to the bottom.  Anxiety gone!

Happy weekend!

This Week’s Extreme Dog Treats!

Hi!  Roscoe, Monty and Henry here with a guest blog post.  What’s in the treat bin this week?

 

Mom finally discovered bulk treats!  With three big boys this is a good idea.  Our favs, salmon skins, chicken feet, cow ears and beef treachea!  We would really like some kind of pork treats but Mom is not sure pork fat is good for us like salmon oil…

Extreme dog treats rule, bone appetit, er bon appetit🐶!

Stitching for Charity, Nancy’s Angels

We we worked this summer knitting these kits.  Children’s hats with cute stuffed animals on top.  These are donated to two elementary schools in our community.   These schools have a high percentage of disadvantaged families. The children don’t have basics like a warm hat for winter mornings.

I spy a Bronco hat too.  Hopefully one true fan will want it!

Competition and Today’s Haiku

My human brother brought this home for Mom.  She immediately hugged him and put him where I can’t reach him.

  • a new intruder
  • try to usurp my cuteness
  • i resist and win!

He isn’t handsome enough or cute enough for a photo shoot with Mom!

2017 Operation Christmas Child

Your gift shoeboxes are are due to the distribution center this week!

Mom figured out how to track our boxes so we will know where the recipient lives.

Our boxes might go to children right here in the USA, or anywhere around the globe!

I wish we could have kept the pink doggie!

Rescue doggies to shoebox recipients. Merry Christmas!
