About Time!!!

Mama is finally letting me use the computer to update everyone! It's about time, but I have to admit that we have all been very busy! For one thing, Mama whelped a hairless puppy on December 27...wait, she says she "gave birth" to a "baby". Okay, whatever...anyway, it is a girl-pup, and she and Dad named it Siobhan. Dad calls her Chevy for short. The baby keeps us all on our paws. We've all been helping Mama with her. I decided that as I am the biggest dog in the house, it's my responsibility to guard her from everything. I even sleep under her cradle, or between the cradle and Mama, since it's my job to guard her too.

I don't remember if I mentioned it before, but Mama had to rehome Lita, which she did a long time ago, but I don't think I got on here and said anything, since Mama has been so bad about letting me have computer time. Lita just kept starting fights with my Lab sisters, and the last one almost got the older human sister bitten. Mama still misses Lita, but LeeLee needed to be in a family where she would be the only dog.

That being said, on February 13 of this year, we added another dog to the pack! This one is a male, but he is only a pup and so submissive that I let him live here. His name is Malayko and he's about 4 or 5 months old. The older biped sister named him. Lots of humans who don't want their dogs drive all the way out to our area and just dump them out of the car and drive away. Can you imagine such a horrible thing as having someone you love do that to you?! So the Labbies and I, we know how lucky we are. Our neighbors have a dog named Chupacabra who was dumped, and Malayko was dumped too. He's a German Shepherd mix, and I think he's mixed with a little bit of Sibe! He's very cute, Mama says, although he will never be as cute as I am - that's just impossible!

And, I'm six years old now! Yes, Mama forgot to let me post another birthday, but she didn't forget to feed us extra special food on our birthday! So I'm not too mad at her - I did get raw chicken leg quarters for my dinner on my special day, and also on my gotcha day! I've been here for three years now! And you know what? Mama and Dad still love me! I guess I shouldn't be surprised by that; they've had my Lab sisters with them for almost seven years now - their whole lives! So we're some lucky dogs, huh?

Hopefully, it won't take so long before Mama lets me on the computer again! The newest biped sister seems to be settling into the pack better now, so maybe Mama will have more time again soon! Until then, don't give up on me! I will be back!

Woos,

Thor
