Meet our brother!

Happy Monday everyone!

First of all, did you guys see what Maggy and Zoey at Zoolatry did for us? Isn't it beautiful? We absolutely love it!

We hope everyone had a nice weekend. It has finally cooled off enough that Mommy left the windows open all day so we could enjoy the breeze. It was a lovely way to spend the weekend - napping with the breeze blowing over us and hearing the birds and squirrels.

In between napping, we had to listen to Samwise complain that he is not blogging with us. Who is Samwise you might ask? He's our oldest brother who is actually a doggie, although he really thinks he is a kitty. He lived with Mommy and Daddy before either of us. Like Jack, a kid in the neighborhood found Samwise four years ago and took him to Aunt Susan (all of the kids bring Aunt Susan the strays they find being as she is a V-E-T and all). Daddy's brother had just crossed the Rainbow Bridge and Aunt Susan thought Daddy needed a friend so she talked him into adopting Samwise. Later, Mommy was concerned that Samwise was lonely being left alone in the house all day so Aunt Susan recommended adopting Samwise a kitty friend. A few months later, along came Captain Jack. Samwise loved Captain Jack from the moment he saw him - he even groomed Jack for three whole hours the first night Jack was adopted. Mommy wanted us to include the picture below as it is here favorite of Samwise and Captain Jack - taken when the Captain was only about 6 weeks old.

So Samwise raised Captain Jack, teaching him how to play and how to hunt and fight. Samwise has always been very patient with Jack, even when Jack tried to put the bitey on him like he did in the picture below.

People usually ask Mommy what kind of doggie Samwise is. She thinks he is a border collie/sheltie/spaniel mix and is very sweet and friendly. Sadly, Captain Jack cannot convince Dante to love or even tolerate Samwise. Dante must have had some bad experiences with doggies when he was a homeless kitty, because he really does not like them and instead growls and hisses at Samwise whenever he is near. Captain Jack has actually had to put the bitey on Dante when Dante tried to attack Samwise. Its one of the things that Jack will always pull Captain's rank on Dante for, because he loves his Sammy!

Stay tuned later in the week. Mommy wants us to do a feature post on our other brother doggie named Beaux. She told us that she will give us nip and Pounce if we do so we guess we should. Do you guys want to hear about Beaux too?

Samwise is very handsome. I like his speckledy coat. I like some dogs that are nice to cats, and Samwise seems like a good boy. I would like to learn about Beaux, too!

What a great photo. I remember that one. Captain Jack, you've grown so big!
Poor Dante, I feel the same way about woofies and my beans think I had bad experiences too. It is so cool Captain Jack stands up for Samwise.
I cant wait to learn about Beaux. How is he??
Isn't Zoolatry talented? I love that photo.

That is a great graphic that the Zoolatry cats made for you. :) Samwise looks like a very nice woofie. :)

We have a black and white woofie brother with spots on his legs too! He has shorter hair, but we think he is part border collie like your woofie (his mother was an Akita). We like to nap near him and give him kisses and Riley gives him baths. He's fun to jump over and run under. He spooks easily because he never met cats that liked him until he was 9, but we snuggle with him as close as he will let us.

Your brother Samwise looks like a great doggie! I have a sister who's a doggie. We play together, too. That's too bad that Dante doesn't like to play with Sammy. I'm looking forward to hearing about Beaux, too!
Your buddy, Jimmy Joe

Hi, I am MoMo and I am new to the blogosphere. Maggy and Zoey's mom is great with portraits. You might be a wee bit too big for the boat though. Do drop by my site and see what the nice lady has turned me into - a surreal model! I love have antlers coming out of my ears.
