Cool, Clear WATER!!!!

Hurray!!!! Yippee!!! Hurrah!!! PRAISE GOD!!! Lots of those words being thrown around here today by our people.

Apparently, it is a really GOOD thing that we have running water now because everyone is so happy! Robert’s been hauling in water every day for these past 7-8 months, so I don’t know what the problem was? I’M not so sure it's "good," though, because I’ve heard the words, “Dogs” and “baths” bandied around, today, too…

We did get to celebrate, though, because Mom had ordered some Dog Munchies from one of her friends, Yassy, from Twitter and Facebook, and we got them in today. Yassy is a sweet Japanese lady who moved to this country and has an online store called Yassy's Gourmet Dog Kitchen. Her taste tester is her corgi, named Palette, and we Twitter with her a lot.

Boy, anipals, wouldn’t THAT be a great job for a dog! Actually, Sasha’s Mom, Dozer’s Mom, and a few others have had some dog treat recipes they’ve shared too, so some of us have gotten to taste test, though not as regularly as Palette.

Yassy and Palette are also Facebook friends and have become fans of Little Dott. We love to read Yassy's Bow Wow K9 News blog and learn about various Japanese traditions, too! Mom has learned some really interesting things. Her latest blog was on “Osoji.” This is the first paragraph: “In Japan, every December, people do large scale cleaning. Cleaning in Japanese is called "soji" and, big scale cleaning is called "osoji". This even is to clean the house in large scale and welcome the new year with new spirit, and schools usually have large scale cleaning days.”

Mom thought it was really neat that the school kids were taught to take responsibility for keeping their schools cleaned as part of each school day.

Anyway, we got a piece of Deer’s Antler, and some Dogitos ( dehydrated grass-fed goat lung – they also come in beef and sheep) which are light and crunchy, like Cheetos, for dogs. Yassy threw in a Beef Trachea and a Lamb’s Trachea, which are natural sources of Glucosamine for older dogs with arthritis, which is probably what’s wrong with my hips. We thought that was really nice of her!

They’ve got rabbit ear, pig snout, Alligator, kangaroo and ostrich treats, too, as well as BullySticks! A long time ago, Mom and Dad had a jerky business that used to sell Kangaroo, Ostrich, Venison, Elk, Wild Boar and Alligator Jerky for people, and she says it was pretty good, so we will probably get to try some of those in the future.

Sadie’s pretty happy because she got the Deer Antler... We'll see about THAT!

Oh, dear. I’m starting to drool just thinking about all those different kinds of jerky. This is MOST UNlady-like. I better change the subject!

Dott is a pretty nervous Nelly because she doesn’t want to miss anything that’s going on out here, but she doesn’t want to leave her babies either, so she is constantly running back and forth between where we are and the back bedroom where her babies are.

She’s such a good Mommy, and has plenty of milk for the little suckers, which Mom is very happy about. Dott about chewed off BG’s nose when he made the comment about them looking like fat little toadys. He has been pouting around a lot since they were born because Dott and the babies are getting so much attention. Actually, I was a little pouty myself that first day, but Mom’s really been loving on me the last day or so, and says she will always love me best.

Today, Dad took a day off and has spent a lot of time loving on BG, too, so he is feeling a bit better. True, Dad was also working on the waterline with Robert...

Robert is driving everyone crazy as
he is totally besotted with being a Grand-Paw!

Hope everyone out there is having a great Labor Day Weekend! We sure are! I’m going to go back to chewing on that Deer Antler I confiscated…

P.S. Mom has started her own blog called A Country Grammy’s Walk With God. She will just be sharing some things that God shows her as she tries to walk with Him…

You have water!! You must be so happy, I bet your Mom is dancing. Mom thought your treats sounded pretty gross but she is checking in to getting me some, because she thinks I would like them. The babies are so cute and I am so proud of Dott the new Mommy, I feel like reading her book tonight. I am glad everyone is getting attention again.

licks and sniffs, Sasha

Thank dogness for the water - there is nothing worse than having no water!
