Trudie's Post: I am very excited about getting to blog to you guys for the first time. Stella is working on her generosity skills and decided I could blog a little about my adventure last night. Stella was sad cos Sam was so upset about his nail clipping mishap at the vet and felt she had caused it. (She was also upset about the hot dogs but that is a story for later.)I reminded her she did not have that type of power...geeze! When mom got home last night she said just her and me were gonna go on a walk and she had a surprize for me. Stella threw a big screaming fit when she realized she was not invited to the party and laid behind the chair pouting most of the night. At one time Mom even thought she was sick.
Mom is letting me rest at a little bench on the way to the park. I am very camera shy and didn't want to look into the lens. What is all that noise across the street? Mom calls it a drinking establishment. We then dropped off Rexi's present for his birthday. He is a hairy pug that lives in England. We mailed a teeny little box full of treats and it cost us our college money. Next we stopped at the Ice Cream Shoppe and Mom bought me a little cone. It was the first time ever I have had ice cream. Mom is working on her cooking skills and she decided a cone was a good place to start. We went over to the park and watched a couple of guys fishing in the river. Mom felt sad for me cos I was so nervous that I would only take a couple of bites of my cone. I tried to tell Mom I was just enjoying breathing in the fresh air and spending time with her.
You can see where all the grass in the park has burnt up from the dought. Even Mom's one and only flower pot display is bug eaten this year. We had a lovely time and were gone for an whole hour...I just loved it. My breathing was pretty rough by the time we got home and of course Ms. Nosey had to know what we did, who we saw, and what we ate. Stella said all the toursists in town probably think people from Iowa walk their pigs when they heard me coming around the corner. Love Trudie
Do i have a story for you. I will try to keep it short so you won't be falling asleep on me. Mom has been thinking hard about what she could actually COOK for us, besides frozen water and after THEIR walk last night came up with the wonderful idea of each of us getting our own all beef hot dog!! Whoot Whoot...we were very excited. No more frozen water for us for dessert..we are moving on up to the big time. Well we patiently waited around the stove for them to start cooking and then Moms friends showed up. Her and Us went outside to talk to them, and mom was yacking and yacking and yacking and we got worried about our hot dogs. All three of us starting barking and raising a commotion so she put us in ALCATRAZ! Mom was not paying attention to our treats or us!! Well after about 45 minutes her friends left and we all went into the house. Guess what was waiting for us...LOTS OF SMOKE and BLACK HOTDOGS!!!!!! Mom puts us back outside and turns the fans on, opens the doors, and windows and throws the pan with our HOTDOGS in the yard!!!!!!! Mom was worried the neighbors would call the fire department or animal control cos we were carrying on so bad. They say pictures say a thousand words....
When Dad got home later he told mom to stick to frozen water and fruit for us. Poor Mom and Poor Us! Have a good weekend....Stellie Rose
