Woefully Neglected! By OC

We were woefully neglected ALL weekend! We probably only got about 60% of their attention during the whole time!


Friday, we got to go into Mimi’s house and play with Kody Bear for several hours and then, when his cousins got there, they all took off and left us there while they went to dinner for Mick’s birthday… (KB’s dad and Grammy & Papa’s son)

And, they DIDN’T EVEN BRING SOME BACK FOR US! Sure, we got some Doggy Treats and Jerky, but no Fajitas or tortillas… not even a bean or some rice!


Saturday, after we had breakfast with Grammy and Papa, Grammy took me and Dott, and left the rest with Papa while Robert took her into town to go with Mimi to a Baby Shower. It was for Kody’s new sister that is supposed to show up in a month or two. Don’t know HOW they gave her a shower if she isn’t even here yet!? Dott and I had to stay at Mimi’s house.

At that other house, Grammy saw a really rare dog that she says was HUGE! He weighs about 160 lbs. already and he isn’t even a year old yet. Grammy said he looked sort of like someone took a HUGE Great Dane and put a BIG Pit Bull head on it. She looked them up and those are two of the breeds that were used in “making” this breed of dog that is used to hunt big game and cougars. His name is “Ocho” and he is an Argentinean Dogo. She got a picture of him on a Queen Sized bed, and he makes the bed look small.

He was all white and they told her that he has to have sunscreen put on him so he doesn’t burn, but he plays in their BIG people pool all the time. Can you IMAGINE… she went and visited ANOTHER dog!


Then, Papa went and picked up Grammy and they went to a Horse Spit All to visit with Papa’s sister before her serge jury. I guess they DID think about us a little, because they stopped by and got us some more jerky treats on the way home.

While Papa was holding Pippin that evening, they noticed that he had somehow gotten a rip in his skin beside where he used to keep his nards, so Grammy cleaned and doctored that. It doesn’t seem to be bothering him, but he is taking antibiotics and they are keeping an eye on it. Papa says he might have gotten it when he ran next door and attacked the neighbor dogs by his little self. He still seems to feel that one extra-small corgi should be able to take down THREE big Australian Shepherds!

On Sunday, after giving BG, me, Gimli and Pippin our medicines and treatments, we went into town for them to go to church and then had some lunch at Mimi’s. They checked by phone, on Papa’s sister, and she had all her kids there and was out of that surge jury place. She still has to stay at the Horse Spit All for ten more days at least, they said. She still needs a lots of prayer, Grammy says, and she also said to tell everyone “Thank You so much for the prayers you have all been saying for her.”

They came home fairly early, but did they play with us then? NO! Grammy took a nap and Papa read a new book Mimi had gotten for him! BG, Gimli and I went in with Grammy and took a nap too, while Pippin stayed out with his Papa.

At least they shared a little of their fruit (cantaloupe, watermelon and Honeydew Melon) and toasted cheese sandwiches with us for dinner…

 Oh, by the way, if you want to read a really interesting blog post, try this one at Yassy’s. It was on unique foods and drinks: Smoked Salmon Vodka and Bacon Chocolate.

Wow..what a post! I love that dogo...I bet it takes a dollar or two to feed him! But he is beautiful!

Sorry to hear about Pippin's nards episode..not sure exactly if I know what that is, but I am figuring it has something to do with the vet trip a little while ago..

And pleased to hear sister is out of serge jury and on the mend...will send a prayer up for a speedy recovery.

What are the Chinese symbols? What does it mean?
I am glad you got some fruit at least, but tacos and beans and stuff would have been better - its the least they could have given you!

Angela said...

Wow! That is one big dog! I'm glad that all of you weren't around such a big dog like that! I hope Pip gets better! And I hope your Aunt gets better from her surgery!

Hugs & Prayers!

I have to be honest - that big dog - all big dogs - scare me.

Hope the little one is okay.

Seems like you are really busy.

WOWEE! Your humans were busy, busy, busy! I'm sorry they didn't have more time to spends with you. Sometimes humans are all go, go, go. Which is fine as long as they take us with them when they go!

Gosh...that was pretty much the biggest dog I've ever seen. ('Cept for Mango, of course.) I wonder how big he'll be when he gets all grown up?

Wiggles & Wags,

Rudy & I are liking the idea of getting something from your shop - and you said something about maybe using a picture of Rudy?
Thanks!

That Dogo sure is beautiful!

That 160 lbs dog must have been something to see.

We have several Great Danes in our neighborhood and my autistic 4 year old son thinks they are small horses.

Mango said...

You sure have been busy and it sounds like everybody is getting an adventure of their own, right? I feel sorry for the needing sunblock doggie, but he sure is good looking. I hope that his family trains him so that he grows up to be a gentleman.

Slobbers,
mango
