Look! I got Bingo on Tibby's bingo game! Whooo hooo! BINGO! BINGO! Don't you just love yelling it? Mum says I have to calm down a bit and send Tibby a note before I break something.
Now Cooper is running around the house yelling "LOSER! LOSER!" because you have to have a "T" not just a regular Bingo. He thinks he is so smart...well, apparently Tibby agrees but at least I got to yell BINGO! and I am not a loser Cooper!

It's been a long day so we are all heading to our beds on Mum's side of the room. I try to sleep in the first bed by Mum so she can drop her hand down and pet my head. Dozer tends to go under the bed and play there before he finally comes out and climbs into the middle bed. Dottie always sleeps at the end of the bed because she gets up and stretches during the night. We'll see all our pup pals tomorrow (yawn). I am going to make sure Mum takes some cold medicene because she has the start of a cold and we can't afford for her to be sick. She has to cart us around on Saturday errands and I have my appointment at the grooming palace for a bath and a cut. (Dozer keeps saying I look like Aunt Martha's raccoon coat with mange. First off, we do not have an Aunt Martha and second, I do not have mange. His need for attention can be so wearing.)
Good night friends, Love, Cooper
Love, CooperThis picture has nothing to do with this blog entry but we thought it might make Dozer feel better since he has this need for attention.

Dottie doesn't move much when she sleeps and she looked dead to him. I'm not sure, but I think Dad was a little disappointed that Dottie was still with us. She's tipped over the recycling one time too many for Dad. Mum, not so much.
Anyway, as I have said before and I will say again, doesn't Dottie look like a pig? Come on, you know she does, you just don't want to say it out loud. Look at those front legs..tell me they don't look like little pig legs. Come on, you know they do!
Mum is giving me that "look" again. So much for total honesty in my blog. Let's all pretend we're the normal nuclear family why don't we? Okay, now Mum is really giving me the "look" and pointing the "finger" towards bed. (whispers) Dottie is a piggy, Dottie is a piggy!
Night, Dozer Dog

Been there, done that.
Take note Dozer...enough said!

I leave some replies, as well as sending off letters of my own (I have a lot of girl friends).
Once we have taken care of our mailbox, we head down to the post office to check for packages and notes on the boards.
Hmmm, Ruby left a nice note about the weather. Said she went camping this weekend but is glad to be back.
So there you are! See peemail isn't that hard to understand. If you need to leave peemail just make sure you load up on the liquids before hand. There is nothing worse than having something to say and running out of ink. Plan ahead, that is all I am saying.
I am digging my way out of solitary confinement and should hit daylight any time now.

Dear Pup Pals,
"Hey fellow dog lovers I’m hoping to get your help… We found this little doggie wandering around on the golf course behind our house, obviously lost, and we’re trying to find his home.
Do you know me? He had no collar, of course, and we took him to Max’s vet who confirmed that he has no ID chip either… Based on his smell and filthy fur we believe he has been outside for a least a couple days.
He was found in the area of Pawleys Island/Litchfield, SC area just about noon today (2.17.09)
He has short curly blond fur that’s been cut very short, and weighs about 10lbs. We’re guessing he’s part Shih Tzu and part Poodle and maybe some other “stuff” too. He seems to be a pretty gentle/healthy/happy dog but does appear to suffer from separation anxiety.
We’ve checked with our area vets and rescue/animal control organizations and no one recognizes him or has been contacted looking for him. There are also no ‘lost dog’ signs that we could find in the area.
Please pass this one to anyone you may know in the area who might be able to help locate his home.
Have them contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org"
Dear Emmit and Howie PeePants:
Providing alibis, none of which were believed.
Dozing off during questioning.

This is my first movie and I believe I may have found a talent not yet mined to its fullest. Nay, it may be that Oscar night my name will be called for Best Canine Film. Of course I will not forget the little people (Dottie, Cooper, Mum).
The premise for this film is a moment of spring in an otherwise damp, grey Oregon winter. I play the hero so I get the most shots, Dottie is the heroine so she got the opening, and Cooper is the comic relief so he gets plugged in wherever. (I noticed he was laughing during my big moment where I stand on the deck and look northwards, sheesh!)
I wanted to use the Hamster March for the soundtrack but it was a little bit too bouncy and it made me hungry for snackies.

This is a card Mum made tonight. We think it kind of looks like her except her butt can't be that big otherwise she couldn't get through the doorways. Well, maybe she could but it would not be pretty.

So this is my shameless advertising of Aunt Laura's handmade collars. The sad news is that they really only fit small dogs like chihuahuas so they aren't meant for relentlessly huge dogs like Mango. But if you want to stop by I had Mum hyperlink the pictures and the title (I told you I was shameless).

Then Cooper gets this idea that we will buy the sheep and the wabbits for Mum for Valentine's Day. I thought this was a bit extravagent but Coop said this was no time to pinch pennies since it is the one time of the year when we can show Mum how much we love her. (I thought licking her face when she was asleep was a pretty good show of it but Cooper says "no".)
We went to Timmy's site and ordered all the wabbits and all the sheep. I told Cooper that the wabbits looked like they were really stuffed and I could pull out their ears and chew on their tails. Cooper's eyes got really big and he said I could do nothing like that. Dottie said she was appalled and that if I did that she would call Timmy's mother and tell her what I did. Dottie is such a tattle tail!
Coop says we have to draw the sheep and the wabbits on a card for Mum's Valentine so she knows they are coming. Dottie got this picture of Timmy off his blog (and she did not even ask permission - so take that Miss Tattle Tail!) and said we could print it off and put it on the card because he is dressed like a wabbit.
All this ordering of wabbits and sheep has been exhausting - I am just beat! So I am going to sleep.
Cooper is in the craft room getting knitting needles and wool so he can knit Timmy a sweater, 'cause Timmy's missing a lot of fur. Don't say anything to Timmy 'cause Coop says he might be sensitive about being bald. Dottie is going to read the directions to Coop on how to knit the sweater. Timmy, if I were you, I'd be on the Internet shopping for a sweater - 'cause Coop is not a good knitter. Last time he got tied up in the wool and we had to chew him out of his mess. (big yawn) I go to sleep now.

Here then is our ode to the letter "T"
T is for Tori, our friend in Portland who is very old
T is for toys, which Cooper steals and does not share
And finally, T is for trips, which we get to take lots of!
We "tag" River to use the letter(s) U and V (because how many words do you know that start with the letter "U"? )
